Thank you for visiting our Website available under (hereinafter "Website").

The protection of personal data in the context of the use of the Website is very important to us. We respect your privacy. This is why we only collect and process your personal data in accordance with the applicable statutory provisions, including the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter "GDPR").

1. Controller

The controller within the scope of Art. 4 no. 7 GDPR is the Vecturis Equity GmbH, Ohmstrasse 13, 80802 Munich, Germany, Telephone: +49 (0) 89 244 1647 0 (hereinafter "Vecturis", "we", "our", "us" etc.)

2. What is personal data

Personal data is all information that can be associated with you individually (cf. Art. 4 no. 1 GDPR). This includes e.g. your name, your address, your phone number and your email address. On the other hand, general information by means of which you cannot be identified does not constitute personal data. Such information includes e.g. the number of users of the Website.

3. What types of personal data do we collect and process for which purposes
3.1. Web server protocols (including the IP address)

When you visit the Website, due to technical requirements, our web server will automatically record your full IP address, the date and the time at which you are visiting the Website, the sections you access on the Website, the website you visited before accessing the Website, the browser you use (e.g. Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome etc.), the operating system you use (e.g. Windows 10, MacOS etc.), and the domain name and address of your Internet provider (e.g. Deutsche Telekom). This information is required for the technical transmission of the Website and the secure operation of the server. This information is not merged with other data sources.

We process this information in order to observe and monitor the stability, functionality, and technical performance of the Website and in order to detect, identify, eliminate and solve any potential problems and errors on the Website. The legal basis for the processing of this information is our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR), which consist in ensuring and improving the integrity, stability, and functionality of the Website – as far as this is technically possible and reasonable.

Furthermore, for reasons of technical security, in particular to ward off attempted attacks or other abuse of the Website and/or our web server, this information is stored for a short period of time. We are not able to directly associate this information with individual persons. After seven days at the latest, this information will be anonymized through the shortening of the IP address to the domain level, so that it will no longer be possible to connect this information to an individual person. However, in the period of time until the shortening of the IP address, we may process this information in case of a security incident (attempted attack or abuse etc.) in cooperation with your internet provider and/or the local authorities in order to identify the party that caused the security incident. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR) which consist in protecting the integrity of the Website, our system and of our users.

This information will usually be processed for statistical and/or market research purposes in anonymized form, i.e. after the IP address has been shortened to the domain level.

3.2. Personal data that you provide in the context of your use of the Website

If you wish to contact us, e.g. by using the contact form or email, the data you provide when doing so will be used to process your request and to get in contact with you. Providing that data is necessary to handle and answer your request; without those data, we cannot answer your request completely or at all. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is the fulfilment of our contractual obligations (Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR) as well as safeguarding our legitimate interests, which include, but are not limited to, contacting you and communicating with you about any concerns you have contacted us about (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).

4. Disclosure of personal data

We do not disclose any personal data to third parties unless such disclosure is required for contractual performance or otherwise allowed by applicable statutory provisions or unless you have given us your consent.

Please note that we are entitled to outsource the processing of personal data in the context of data protection law provisions fully or partially to external service providers working on our behalf as data processors (Art. 4 no. 8 GDPR).

In general, your personal data is processed within the European Union (EU) or the signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). However, in the event that your personal data is transferred to recipients located in a third country outside of the EU or EEA, Vecturis ensures the protection of your personal data by means of adequate safeguards in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements, e.g. EU Standard Contractual Clauses.
