§ 2 Definitions

(1) The privacy policy is based on the terms used by the European regulator in the adoption of the basic EU data protection regulation (hereinafter referred to as "GDPR"). The privacy policy should be easy to read and understand. To ensure this, the most important terms are explained below:
(2) Personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"). Identifiable refers to a person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
(3) The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the data controller.
(4) Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, deletion or destruction.
(5) Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
(6) Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
(7) The data controller or the person responsible for processing means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or national law, provision may be made for the controller to be designated in accordance with Union or national law.
(8) A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
(9) The recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body to which the personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.
(10) Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
(11) Consent is any statement of intent voluntarily and unambiguously given by the data subject in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a statement or other unambiguous confirming act that indicates to the data subject that they have consented to the processing of their personal data.

§ 4 Use of cookies

(1) This site uses cookies. Cookies are small text files which, when you visit a website, are sent from a web server to your browser and stored locally on your end device (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) and stored on your computer and send the user (i.e. our company) certain information. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Each cookie contains a characteristic character string (called a cookie ID), which enables unique identification of the browser when reopening the website.
(2) We use cookies to meet the data protection requirement by inserting a cookie banner. This requires that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change and you may not have to give your consent again. This is also the purpose of using our cookies.
(3) We also use cookies on our website which enable analysis of the user's online behaviour. The purpose of using technically unnecessary cookies is to improve the quality of our website and its contents. By analysing cookies, we learn how the site is used and can constantly optimise our service.  This information may also be used if you visit the website again with the same device, to automatically recognise you and make navigation easier for you.
(4) When you visit our website, you will be informed about the use of cookies and consent to the processing of personal data used in this context will be obtained. We will at that time also make reference to this privacy policy.
(5) The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c, f) GDPR.  The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes, if consent is given, is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

§ 5 Contact form and emails

(1) There is a contact form on our website which can be used for electronic contact. If you make use of this option, the data entered in the input screen will be sent to us and stored. This data is:
· E-mail address
· Message
· Name
The following data is also stored at the time the message was sent:
· The user's IP address
· Date and time of registration
During the sending process, your consent is obtained for processing data and reference is made to this privacy policy.

If this includes information about communication channels (e.g. email address, telephone number), you also agree that we may contact you via this communication channel in order to respond to your request. No data will be disclosed to third parties in this context. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.
(3) The legal basis for processing the data, if the user's consent to this has been obtained, is Art. 6 Para. 1 clause 1 lit. a) GDPR. The legal basis for processing the data transmitted in the course of sending an email is Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f) GDPR. If you send us an e-mail with the intention of entering into contract with us, this creates an additional legal basis for its processing per Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
(4) We use personal data provided on contact forms only to make the requested contact. The data from your email inquiries will of course only be used for the purpose for which you made it available to us when contacting us. The other personal data processed during the sending process is used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Herein also lies our legitimate interest.
(5) The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the contact form input screen and the data that was sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has been completed. The conversation will have ended when it is evident from the circumstances that the matter at hand has been conclusively resolved. Personal data that was additionally collected during the sending procedure will be deleted at the latest after a period of seven days. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the execution of a contract, the data will be deleted after expiry of the statutory (commercial or tax) storage periods required for this.
(6) You can revoke your consent to the processing of the email and its content at any time. It will not be possible to continue the conversation in this case. To do this, please contact the data controller in accordance with § 1. However, this revocation option only exists if the email contact is not used to prepare or execute a contract.

§ 6 Login investor area

(1) We offer you the opportunity to register for our investor area on our website by providing personal data. The data is entered into an input form and transmitted to us and stored. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless required to do so by law or for the purpose of criminal or legal prosecution. The following data is collected during the registration process:
· E-mail address
· Date and time of registration

The user receives the password and user name from the controller after the registration confirmation in accordance with para. 2.
(2) We use the double opt-in procedure for registration. This means that after your registration we will send you an email to the specified email address in which we ask you to confirm that you would like to be registered. If you do not confirm your registration within [24 hours], your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we will store your IP address and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data.
(3) The legal basis for processing the data, if the user's consent to this has been obtained, is Art. 6 Para. 1 clause 1 lit. a) GDPR.
(4) Registration is required to provide certain content and services on our website, to prevent misuse and, if necessary, to investigate criminal offenses.
(5) The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case for the data collected during the registration process and the email address as soon as you delete your access. We save the name for three months; then it will be deleted.
(6) Furthermore, you are free to have the personal data provided during registration completely deleted from the database of the data controller by declaring the revocation to the data controller according to § 1 via e-mail or by post. In this case, your data will be deleted immediately.

§ 7 SSL encryption

Our website uses SSL encryption if confidential or personal data is transmitted. This encryption is used, for example, for payment transactions and inquiries to us via this website. To ensure that this encryption is actually active, you must monitor that on your side. The status of the encryption can be seen from the browser line, which changes from “http: //” to https: // in the case of encryption. In the case of encryption, your data cannot be read by third parties. If the encryption is not active, please contact us confidentially via another contact option.

§ 8 Disclosure of personal data to third parties

8.1 Links to external websites
This website contains links to external sites. We are responsible for our own content. We have no influence over the contents of external links and are therefore not responsible for them, in particular we do not adopt their contents as our own.

8.2 Rented server space
We would like to point out that we have rented a server space from ALL-INKL.COM, Neue Medien Münnich, Hauptstr. 68, 02742 Friedersdorf, Since we do not collect log files, the provider generally does not receive any information about the user.
