In some instances this could take up to one month (if legally allowed). Should we require more time to complete your request, we will let you know how much longer we need and provide reasons for the delay.
In certain cases, we may deny your request. If it’s legally permitted, we will let you know in due course why we denied it.
How we protect your personal data

In addition, ING employees are subject to confidentiality and may not disclose your personal data unlawfully or unnecessarily.
How long we keep your personal data
We are only allowed to keep your personal data for as long as it’s still necessary for the purpose we initially required it. After this we look for feasible solutions, like archiving it.
