   A. Data processing on our website

Categories of processed data and origin
We collect and process personal data that we receive as part of our business relationship with our customers. In principle, as little personal data as possible is processed. The data processed may differ depending on the group of persons. Personal data may be collected or (further) processed at any stage of the business relationship, from the initiation of the business relationship to the termination of the business relationship.
In addition to customer data, we may also process personal data of other third parties involved in the business relationship.
By personal data we mean the following data categories:
  • Personal data
  • Identification data and authentication data
  • Information from the fulfillment of our legal obligations
  • Other master data
  • Data from the fulfillment of contractual obligations
  • Information on financial situation and professional background
  • Documentation data

  • Personal data that we receive from third parties, from public authorities (e.g. UN and EU sanctions lists) or from other companies in a permissible manner (e.g. for the execution of orders or fulfillment of contracts).
  • Personal data – to the extent necessary for the provision of our services – that we have legitimately obtained from publicly accessible sources or other sources, such as databases for checking and monitoring business relationships (e.g. judicial, official or administrative measures, memberships and offices).
  • Personal data from publicly accessible sources for the purpose of customer acquisition and the prevention of money laundering.
  • Personal data on the basis of your consent.
Categories of personal data collected
Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. The following data is collected:
  • Complete IP address of the requesting computer;
  • Date and time of access;
  • Internet pages from which the user’s system accesses our website (referrer URL);

Processing purposes
The processing of personal data on our website is limited to the data required to provide a functional website and user-friendly content and services. As well as for the following purposes:
  • For the performance of a contract or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract (such as the provision of financial services) to which the data subject is a party, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our services.
  • To fulfill legal obligations.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfillment of tax, regulatory or anti-money laundering obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR.
  • To safeguard legitimate interests.
Processing operations may also be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of you do not prevail. Such legitimate interests include in particular the following processing activities:
  • Prevention of fraud
  • Direct marketing
  • Transmission of data for internal administrative purposes
  • Ensuring network and information security
  • Prevention of possible criminal offenses
In particular, we therefore collect personal data on our website for internal administrative purposes (e.g. to ensure the stability and operational security of the system).
Legal basis
The processing of personal data in connection with our website is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR on the basis of:
  • Your consent, if you provide us with your data voluntarily (letter a);
  • our legitimate interest, e.g. in ensuring the stability and operational security of the system (letter f).
Storage and forwarding of data
Access to your data may be granted to departments both within and outside our company.
Within the company, only departments or employees may process your data if they need it to fulfill our contractual, legal and regulatory obligations and to protect legitimate interests.
If business areas and services of the company are outsourced in whole or in part to Group companies (e.g. Group-wide coordination tasks in various areas, such as due diligence, risk management or customer relationship management) or service providers outside our Group or if they provide services (such as payment transactions, subscription and redemption of fund units, printing and dispatch of documents, IT systems and other support functions), this is done in accordance with the applicable legal provisions. All Group companies and external service providers or vicarious agents to whom personal data is transferred are contractually obliged to protect data privacy, to process your data only within the scope of the provision of services and to comply with data protection instructions and legal requirements. Processors may be companies in the categories of banking services, distribution agreements, IT services, logistics, printing services, telecommunications, debt collection, consulting and advisory services as well as sales and marketing.
Storage duration of data
We store the personal data collected each time our website is accessed and files are transferred for a maximum period of ten years or as long as our legitimate interest exists. The data is stored for reasons of data security – in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server – and to ensure the stability and operational security of our system.
Automated decision-making including profiling
Our decisions are not based exclusively on the automated processing of personal data. In particular, we do not use automated decision-making to establish and conduct the business relationship. Nor do we use profiling measures.

  • To obtain information about the personal data processed or the categories of personal data processed, the purposes of processing, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the intention to transfer data to a third country or an international organization, including suitable guarantees, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right to lodge a complaint, the origin of your data if it was not collected by us, and the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information on its details;
  • to request the correction, completion or deletion of your personal data that is incorrect or is not processed in accordance with the law;
  • to require us to restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of the use of the personal data instead.
  • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require the personal data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • You have objected to processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
  • to object to the processing of your personal data or to revoke the consent previously given for the processing, which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. In the event of an objection, our company will no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
The recipients to whom personal data has been disclosed shall be notified of the rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing. This notification obligation does not apply if this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort;
If our company processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing. If you object to our company processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
  • You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were issued before the GDPR came into force, i.e. before May 25, 2018. Please note that the revocation only takes effect for the future. Processing that took place before the withdrawal is not affected. If you wish to exercise your right to withdraw consent, you can contact our data protection officer at any time.
  • To receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to request transmission to another controller, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
