Visitor registration and verification

We check the identity and monitor the movements of all our visitors, on the basis of their identity document and visitor pass. We record their names and email addresses, the numbers of their identity documents, the reasons for their visits and the names of their contacts at DNB, as well as the times of their visits and their movements in our building.

The identity document is scanned to verify its authenticity. Scanning might produce an alert (for example, if the identity document is stolen). The results of these scans are not retained. If the system produces an alert we will contact the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee and/or the police. Other personal data will be deleted six months after your visit.

Data processing is necessary because the tasks we carry out in the public interest – i.e. protecting confidential information and valuables – requires a high level of security pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR. Here you can find our detailed privacy statement.


We do not have parking spaces for visitors.
