Disclosure of data to third parties and third-party providers
Your personal data will only be disclosed if you have expressly consented, if there is a legal obligation to do so or if this is required to enforce our rights, in particular for the enforcement of claims arising from a contractual relationship.
In addition, we pass on your data to external service providers, as far as this is necessary for the execution of the agreement. These service providers use your data exclusively for order processing and not for further purposes.
We will never sell your personal information to third parties.
For certain services, we work with specialized companies (for example, to operate our e-mail newsletter). For this purpose, personal data is transferred on our part in order to be able to operate this service. Here we take appropriate legal precautions and appropriate technical and organizational measures, to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the relevant legal regulations.
Communication & CRM
When contacting us (via contact form or e-mail) the details of the user are needed to handle the contact request and its processing. User information can be stored in our Customer Relationship Management System (“CRM System”).
With the following information we explain you the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described and agree that we may use your personal information for promotional activities, such as to send e-mails with promotional character (newsletter).
If you prefer not to receive marketing communications or newsletters from us, you can unsubscribe by following the unsubscribe instructions at the end of each e-mail or contacting us.
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. As part of the registration for the newsletter, the expected content is described concretely and they are relevant for the consent of the users. Furthermore, our newsletters contain information about our offers, events and promotions, our company and the latest news from the financial industry.
Use of the e-mail marketing provider „Campaign Monitor“
The dispatch of the newsletter takes place by means of „Campaign Monitor“, a newsletter dispatch
platform of the Australian provider Campaign Monitor, Level 38, 201 Elizabeth Street, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia (www.campaignmonitor.com).
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients as well as their other data described in these notes, are stored on the servers of Campaign Monitor in Australia, USA and Germany. Campaign Monitor uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. In addition, Campaign Monitor may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, for example, to optimize the technical delivery and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. Campaign Monitor does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or to pass them on to third parties.
To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask you to provide your first and last name as well as your salutation. This information is only used for the personalization of the newsletter.
Statistical survey and analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called „web-beacon“, i.e. a pixel-size file that is retrieved from the Campaign Monitor server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this call, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval will be collected. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or the audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients, but it is neither our intention nor that of Campaign Monitor to observe individual users. Rather, the evaluations serve to better arrange the information and offers in our newsletter with the individual interests of the respective recipient.The web-beacon will be deleted when you delete the newsletter.
To stop the use of the web-beacon in our newsletter, please set your mail program so that no HTML is displayed in messages (if this is not already the case by default). On the following pages you will find explanations on how to make this setting for the most common e-mail programs:
Online request and data management
In addition, we point out to you the possibility of objection to the collection of data for advertising purposes on the websites http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ (for the European area).
Termination / cancellation
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter. After termination your data will be deleted except for the e-mail address. The e-mail address will be stored in a blacklist and will only be used to ensure that we do not send any further e-mails to your e-mail address.
