By far the majority of the functions on this corporate site can be accessed without registering your personal details. However, collecting your personal details is necessary in certain cases. For instance, your IP address is used so that the location where the information has to be sent can be identified. If you access the internet from your work, then that is the IP address of your company. If you are using your home computer, then generally your Internet Service Provider (ISP) will be given.
Furthermore, your personal data will be collected if you apply for (e-mail) alerts, apply for a vacancy or send an e-mail. This information is used in order to be able to answer your query. Only when you are requested to enter your name, e-mail address or other data, this data will be collected.

This is not personal data. This data is collected and only used by Robeco to harmonize the website to the wishes and preferences of the users as much as possible.
