We are pleased that you are visiting our website. The protection of your privacy and the protection of your personal data, the so-called personal data, when using our website is important to us.

According to Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR, personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your first and last name, your address, your telephone number, your e-mail address, but also your IP address.

Data that cannot be related to your person, such as through anonymization, are not personal data. Processing (e.g. collection, storage, reading, retrieval, use, transmission, deletion or destruction) pursuant to Art. 4 No. 2 GDPR always requires a legal basis or your consent. Processed personal data must be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no longer any statutory storage obligations to be met.

4. Provision and use of the website / server log files

a) Nature, scope and purpose of data processing

If you use this website without transmitting data to us in any other way (e.g. by registration or use of the contact form), we collect technically necessary data via server log files, which are automatically transmitted to our server, among other things:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file
  • Website from which access is made (referrer URL)
  • Access status / HTTP status code
  • Browser type
  • Language and version of the browser software
  • Operating system
     

This processing is technically necessary in order to be able to display our website to you. We also use the data to ensure the security and stability of our website.

b) Legal basis

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The processing of the mentioned data is necessary for the provision of a website and thus serves the protection of a legitimate interest of our company.    
 

c) Storage period

As soon as the personal data mentioned is no longer required to display the website, it will be deleted. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object to this aspect. A further storage can take place in individual cases, if this is legally prescribed.

5. Use of cookies

a) Nature, scope and purpose of data processing

We use cookies to facilitate and improve the use of our website. Cookies are small files containing text information that are stored on a computer when a website is visited via the web browser. This serves the recognition of a session, for example when logging in permanently to a website.

Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of technically necessary cookies. Other cookies, on the other hand, allow us to perform various analyses. For example, some cookies may recognize the browser you are using when you return to our website and transmit various information to us. We use cookies to facilitate and improve the use of our website. For example, we can use cookies to make our website more user-friendly and effective for you by, for example, tracking your use of our website and determining your preferred settings (e.g. country and language settings). If third parties process information via cookies, they collect the information directly via your browser. However, cookies do not damage your terminal device. They cannot run programs or contain viruses. Various types of cookies are used on our website, the nature and function of which are explained below.

Temporary cookies / session cookies

So-called temporary cookies or session cookies are used on our website, which are automatically deleted as soon as you close your browser. This type of cookie makes it possible to record your session ID. This makes it possible to assign different requests from your browser to a common session and it is possible to recognize your terminal device during later website visits.

Permanent cookies

So-called permanent cookies are used on our website. Permanent cookies are cookies that are stored in your browser for a longer period of time and can transmit information. The respective storage period varies depending on the cookie. You can delete permanent cookies independently via your browser settings.

Third-party cookies

We use analytical cookies to monitor anonymous user behaviour on our website.

We also use advertising cookies. These cookies can be used to track user behaviour for advertising and targeted marketing purposes.

Social media cookies allow you to connect to your social networks and share content from our website within your networks.

Configuration of browser settings

Most web browsers are preset to accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that it only accepts certain cookies or no cookies at all. However, we would like to point out that you may then no longer be able to use all the functions of our website.

You can also delete cookies already stored in your browser via your browser settings. It is also possible to set your browser so that it notifies you before cookies are stored. Since the different browsers can differ in their respective functionalities, we ask you to use the respective help menu of your browser for the corresponding configuration options.

Disabling the use of cookies may require the storage of a permanent cookie on your computer. If you subsequently delete this cookie, you must deactivate it again if you do not want the use of other cookies.

b) Legal basis of data processing

Due to the purposes described, the legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. If you have given us your consent to the use of cookies on the basis of a notice ("cookie banner") provided by us on the website, the legal basis is also Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

c) Storage priod

As soon as the data transmitted to us via cookies is no longer required for the purposes described above, this information is deleted. A further storage can take place in individual cases, if this is legally prescribed.

6. Use of pixels / partner programs

Tracking pixel

a) Nature, scope and purpose of data processing

We also use so-called pixels from various providers and affiliate programs for the purpose of user tracking. Pixels, also called tracking pixels, web beacons or web bugs, are small, invisible files on web pages. Pixels can be used to recognize and share certain types of information on your computer system, such as the contents of cookies, the time and date of a page view, and a description of the page where the pixel is located. A transaction can thus be assigned to a specific publisher or affiliate (see below).

b) Legal basis of data processing

The legal basis for data processing are our legitimate advertising interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. If you have given your consent, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

c) Storage period

The storage period of the respective tool can be seen in our cookie banner.
 

Affiliate networks

a) Nature, scope and purpose of data processing

We integrate elements (especially advertisements) from partner networks in the field of affiliate marketing into our website. When calling up these advertising banners, the user is redirected to external partner sites.

Affiliate marketing is based on the placement of advertisements from advertising companies (advertisers) on the websites of third parties (publishers). By displaying advertisements from partner sites, we become active as publishers in this sense. The mediation of advertisements from an advertiser to a publisher (both so-called "affiliates") takes place via affiliate networks. Affiliate networks are also responsible for assigning the clicks on advertisers' banner ads to the publisher's pages in order to enable performance-based compensation for the publisher.

For this purpose, the respective affiliate network sets a cookie on the user's end device. With the help of this cookie, the network usually collects the following data: User ID, IDs of the participating partner sites, advertising material ID, time stamp.

The purpose of processing is the handling of commission payments in relation to the affiliate network and advertisers.

If you do not want cookies from affiliate networks to be set, you can set your browser to not accept cookies. In addition, you can delete cookies at any time in the settings of your browser.

Insofar as we use affiliate networks located outside the EU or the EEA, these are obliged to adhere to a data protection standard that essentially corresponds to the European standard on the basis of so-called EU standard contract clauses.

We set links to partner sites from the following affiliate networks:

With regard to the affiliate network financeAds, we act both as a publisher and as an advertiser. This means that we do not only publish advertisements of partners on our website, but also place advertisements on partner sites ourselves. We therefore also set cookies on our website in order to recognize the user on partner sites and to be able to send him our offers there.

b) Legal basis of data processing

The legal basis for data processing are our legitimate advertising interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

c) Storage period

The data collected by the affiliate networks is not processed by us. The cookie we set within the financeAds network has a duration of 60 days.
 

Further partner programs / direct cooperations

a) Nature, scope and purpose of data processing

In addition, we also link to partner sites without the use of affiliate networks. In this case, the external partner is informed via the link that the user has been forwarded from our site. Other data is not transmitted to the partner site, but is collected directly on the partner site after the redirection, e.g. the IP address of the user. The purpose of the processing is again to enable performance-based remuneration from us as a publisher.

In case of direct cooperation, your data entered with one cooperation partner may also be made available to the other cooperation partner in order to fulfill the purpose of the cooperation. We enter into cooperations with partner sites in such cases if we wish to link our services to the offerings of third parties, e.g. by placing our products on the platform of a third party and enabling a transaction with us directly on the third party platform. We can be both the data transmitting and the data receiving cooperation partner.

We are involved in direct cooperations with the following partner sites:

c) Storage period

The data shall be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of their processing.

In addition, there may be legal storage obligations, for example commercial or fiscal storage obligations according to the German Commercial Code (HGB) or the German Tax Code (AO). If such storage obligations exist, we block or delete your data at the end of these storage obligations.

8. Registration option

a) Nature, scope and purpose of data processing

You can register on our website. When you register, we collect and store the data you enter in the input mask (e.g. last name, first name, e-mail address). Your data is not passed on to third parties.

Your registration is required for the use of certain content and services on our website or for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

You can apply on our website or by e-mail. When you apply, we collect and store the data that you enter into the input mask or that you send us by e-mail.

10. Comment function

a) Nature, scope and purpose of data processing

On our website you can write and comment articles. If you write or comment on a contribution, we collect and store the data you enter in the input mask. In addition to the comments you leave, we also store and publish information about the time you enter your comments and any user names (pseudonyms) you have chosen. Furthermore, the IP address assigned to the person concerned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) is stored. Your data is not passed on to third parties.

The processing of the data transmitted by you (e.g. the IP address) is necessary to display your comment on our website. Besides, the processing serves security purposes, e.g. in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties by submitting a comment or posts illegal content.

This collected personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless such a passing on is prescribed by law or serves the legal defence of the controller.

b) Legal basis of data processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data transmitted when using the comment function is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR, if and to the extent that you have given your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation. Another legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

We have a legitimate interest in the processing if third party rights are violated or illegal content is posted. This serves the security, if someone writes illegal contents in comments and contributions (insults, forbidden political propaganda etc.).

c) Storage period

The comments and the associated data (e.g. IP address) are stored and remain on our website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments have to be deleted for legal reasons.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We have a justified interest in the processing of the above-mentioned personal data in order to be able to process your request properly.

The duration of the storage of the above data depends on the background of your contact. Your personal data will be deleted on a regular basis if the purpose of the communication no longer applies and storage is no longer necessary.

12. Data processing for the fulfilment of legal obligations and for our own legitimate purposes

a) Nature, scope and purpose of data processing

In addition, personal data may be passed on to consultants (e.g. lawyers, tax consultants) or the criminal prosecution authorities or processed internally to ensure the functionality and security of the IT systems.

In addition, we may be obliged to pass on your data to other public authorities and institutions (e.g. prosecutor's office, police, supervisory authorities, tax office, social insurance agencies, etc.).

The purpose of processing is the assertion or defence of legal claims, the prevention and prosecution of criminal offences and the guarantee of IT security.

In addition, processing may be aimed at the fulfilment of legal obligations.

The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR according to our legitimate interest in the performance of the above-mentioned purposes.

Insofar as there is a legal obligation to disclose, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR.

c) Storage period

13. Newsletter

a) Nature, scope and purpose of data processing

On our website you have the possibility to subscribe to a free regular e-mail newsletter in order to send you the newsletter regularly, we need your e-mail address from you.

In connection with the newsletter dispatch a passing on of your data takes place if necessary to our newsletter service provider who is active in the way of the order processing for us; a passing on beyond that to third parties does not take place.

For the newsletter dispatch we use the so-called double opt-in procedure.

This means that we will not send you an e-mail newsletter until you have expressly confirmed that you agree to receive the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters from us by clicking on the appropriate link.

This serves to ensure that only you yourself as the owner of the e-mail address provided can register for the newsletter. Your confirmation must be sent promptly after receipt of the confirmation e-mail, otherwise your newsletter subscription will be automatically deleted from our database.

When you subscribe to the newsletter, we collect and store the data you enter in the input mask (e.g. last name, first name, e-mail address).

When you register for the newsletter, we also save your IP address entered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to track any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later point in time. In the confirmation e-mail sent for control purposes (double opt in the e-mail), we also store the date and time of the click on the confirmation link and the IP address registered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP).

The data collected by us when registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively for the purpose of advertising the newsletter.

b) Legal basis of data processing

In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR and § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG (German Unfair Competition Act), the processing of your e-mail address for newsletter dispatch is based on the declaration of consent voluntarily given by you in the following and revocable at any time for the future. In addition, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit f) GDPR due to legitimate interests of us to document the evidence of the necessary consent.

c) Storage period

Your e-mail address will be stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After unsubscribing from the newsletter your e-mail address will be deleted unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or another legal basis for data processing applies.

14. Social Media Platforms

We also integrate social media platforms partly via links behind the respective logo graphics of the provider of the social media platform. Here, no data is automatically transferred to the providers, but only when you want to switch to the social media platform and actively click on the link. We have no influence on which data is collected and transmitted and how the providers process or use it.

If you are logged in to your user account on a social network when you access our profile page, the operator of the social network may be able to assign the information collected during your visit to your personal account. If you want to avoid that the collected information can be directly assigned to your user account, you have to log out of the respective social network before accessing our profile page.

If you access our profile page on a social network, the operator of the social network can also set cookies on your end device, regardless of whether you have an account with the network or whether you are logged in there. Cookies are data packets that mark the user's end devices with a specific identifier. Cookies are set primarily to enable us to display personalized advertising to visitors to social networks, including our profile pages. This is done, for example, by showing the user ads on social network pages from social network advertising partners whose websites the user had previously visited. Cookies also enable us to compile statistics on the use of our profile page (e.g. number of page views, user categories). If we receive such statistical analyses from the operator of the social network, the data is previously anonymized by the operator, i.e. it is not possible for us to assign usage data to an individual user.

The purpose of processing your data on our profile page with the respective social network is to inform you about our offers and services and to answer any enquiries on our profile page. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR. In this respect, public relations work is covered by our legitimate interests within the meaning of the provision.

Private messages that you send us via social networks will be deleted after 2 years after the last communication with you. Public posts from you (e.g. in our timeline) will always remain permanently published until you explicitly request their deletion.

In accordance with the case law of the European Court of Justice, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the respective social network for the operation of our profile page and the inclusion of social plugins with regard to compliance with data protection regulations. Within this framework, the operator of the social network provides the corresponding IT infrastructure as well as the social network website and is basically the primary contact person when it comes to processing your data on the social network pages (e.g. information or deletion). However, you can also assert your legal rights against us. In this case we will forward your requests to the operator of the social network.

15. Tracking and analysis tools

We use tracking and analysis tools to ensure continuous optimization and design of our website to meet your needs. Through the use of tracking and analysis measures, it is also possible for us to statistically record the use of our website by visitors and to further develop our online presence for you through the knowledge gained thereby.

If you have given us your consent to the use of cookies on the basis of a notice ("cookie banner") provided by us on the website, the legality of the use is additionally governed by Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

In addition, we may have a legitimate interest in optimizing our online presence so that the use of tracking and analysis tools may in some cases be permissible under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

If the providers of the tools transfer the data outside the EU/EEA, the recipients are obliged to comply with an appropriate data protection standard on the basis of so-called EU standard contract clauses. In addition, a transfer to a third country may also take place due to the recognition of an adequate level of data protection by the European Commission.

The tracking and analysis tools we use are listed in our cookie banner. Such tools that require your consent are only activated when the respective setting in the cookie banner is checked and saved. You can change or revoke the settings you have made at any time.

16. Additional tools

We integrate the maps of the service Google Maps. Google Maps ist a service of Google Ireland Ltd, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland, E-mail: support-deutschland@google.com ("Google").

We use Google Maps to show you maps on our website, especially for directions. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on our website and enables you to use the map function conveniently.

Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the design of its website in line with requirements.

Such evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of providing demand-oriented advertising. The evaluation is also carried out to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

If you use the Google Maps component integrated on our website, Google will store a cookie on your end device via your Internet browser and process the following data:

  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • Information about your Internet service provider
  • Your IP address
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which you came to our website

17. Credit bureaus

We make use of the services of credit agencies (e.g. SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden, Germany https://www.schufa.de/en/schufa-information/schufa-information_en.jsp), Creditreform Boniversum GmbH, Hammfelddamm 13, 41460 Neuss, Germany (the data protection declaration of Creditreform Boniversum GmbH can be found here https://www.boniversum.de/eu-dsgvo/for-consumers-information-under-eu-gdpr/?lang=en) within the framework of the entire business relationship with you, insofar as this is necessary and permissible to safeguard our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties or to fulfil statutory obligations. This includes in particular:

  • Transmission of the data collected from you concerning the application, execution and termination of business relations as well as data concerning non-contractual behaviour or fraudulent behaviour.
  • Data exchange to determine creditworthiness or default risks and the requirements for the garnishment protection account or base account.
  • Measures to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing or the prevention and investigation of criminal offences.
     

The information obtained from the credit agencies forms the basis for the decision on credit applications (including credit cards) and serves to minimize financial risks for all parties involved. Information can also be obtained outside a credit request, e.g. when opening an account and issuing debit cards, if this is necessary to reduce financial risks.

It is also possible that the decision on the opening of an account or the credit application is automatically taken by the computer system on the basis of the information obtained. Negative information leads to a rejection of the account opening, the card application or the credit application.

The legal basis of data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Insofar, our legitimate interest is the safeguarding of our business activities with the help of creditworthiness data. Besides, the data exchange with credit bureaus helps protect third parties in the course of their commercial activities.

18. What rights do you have with regard to data protection?

19. Which data are you obliged to provide?

As part of our business relationship, you must provide the personal information necessary to establish and conduct a business relationship and to fulfil the contractual obligations associated therewith, or which we are required by law to collect. Without this information, we will generally not be able to enter into or execute the contract with you.

If you are authorized to represent a third party, you must provide us with the personal data that are necessary for the collection and execution of a representation / authorization and the fulfilment of the associated contractual obligations or which we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data, we usually have to reject you as an authorized representative or cancel an existing authorization.

In particular, we are obliged under the provisions of money laundering law to identify you on the basis of your identification document before establishing the business relationship or the power of representation / authorization and to collect and record your name, place of birth, date of birth, nationality, address and identification data. To enable us to comply with this legal obligation, you must provide us with the necessary information and documents in accordance with the Money Laundering Act and notify us immediately of any changes arising in the course of the business relationship. If you do not provide us with the necessary information and documents, we may not establish or continue the business relationship you have requested or set up or continue the power of representation / authorization you have requested.

20. Is profiling taking place?

We partially process your data automatically with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling). For example, we use profiling in the following cases:

  • Due to legal and regulatory requirements, we are obliged to combat money laundering, terrorist financing and property-threatening crimes. Data evaluations are also carried out (e.g. in payment transactions). These measures also serve to protect you.
  • In order to be able to provide you with targeted information and advice on products, we use evaluation tools. These enable needs-based communication and advertising, including market and opinion research.
  • We use scoring to assess your creditworthiness. The probability with which a customer will meet its payment obligations in accordance with the contract is calculated. For example, income, expenses, existing liabilities, occupation, employer, length of employment, experience from the previous business relationship, contractual repayment of previous loans and information from credit agencies can be included in the calculation.
     

The scoring is based on a mathematically-statistically recognized and proven procedure. The calculated scores support us in making decisions in the context of product closures and are included in ongoing risk management.

21. Information on the right of objection under Article 21 GDPR

Right of objection in individual cases

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you carried out pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 lit. e) GDPR (data processing in the public interest) and Article 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests), including profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Article 4 No. 4 GDPR.

If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

In individual cases we process your personal data in order to operate direct advertising. You have the right at any time to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling in so far as it is connected with such direct advertising.

II. Data protection information on the changes by the PSD2

The Second Payment Services Directive ("PSD2") and its implementation into German law will bring some changes in the field of online banking.

The most visible is the introduction of two-factor authentication. As soon as you want to log in to the online banking of your Fidor account via your internet browser, not only the input of user name and password is required but also the confirmation of the log in via an mTAN. The same applies to payments created in a web browser after login. However, the login in the Fidor Smart Banking App still does not require an mTAN. If a payment is to be made via the Fidor Smart Banking App, you will receive a pushTAN. The payment is then released by wiping on the device.

In addition, with your express consent, your account and transaction data may be forwarded to third party payment service providers to fulfill the purposes assumed by these service providers towards you. These payment service providers can basically be divided into payment initiation services and account information services. Payment initiation services can be located between the Fidor Bank as a credit institution and a marketplace, e.g. an online shop, and in this case they take over the payment processing without you having to log in to your Fidor account or provide the marketplace with your account data. Fidor Bank provides the account data required for the transaction to the payment initiation service via a PSD2 interface. With the help of account information services you can, e.g. have the relevant information on your bank accounts, including your Fidor account, displayed in an aggregated way. To do this, the account information service retrieves the data of your Fidor account via the PSD2 interface of Fidor Bank.

Further information about the changes due to the PSD2 can be found on our FAQ page: www.fidor.de/psd2-fur-privat-und-geschaeftskunden

4. For what purposes will your data be processed and on what legal basis?

We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG):

a) For the fulfilment of contractual obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR)

The processing of personal data is carried out to provide banking transactions and financial services within the framework of the execution of our contracts with our customers or to carry out pre-contractual measures, which take place at your request.

The purposes of data processing depend primarily on the specific product you are using (e.g. account, credit, etc.) and may include, but are not limited to, needs analyses, advice, asset management and support, and the execution of transactions. Further details for the purpose of data processing can be found in the respective contract documents and terms and conditions. Within the scope of fulfilling contractual obligations, data is also exchanged with credit card providers if a credit card is applied for and made available via Fidor Bank AG. This also includes automatic data exchange as part of the Mastercard® Automatic Billing Updater (ABU) database to minimize the rejection of card payments when credit card data expires or changes are made.

b) In the context of balancig interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR)

If necessary, we process your data beyond the fulfilment of contractual obligations to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties.

Examples of this are:

  • Consultation and data exchange with credit agencies (e.g. SCHUFA, Creditreform Boniversum GmbH*) to determine creditworthiness and default risks in the credit business,
  • Testing and optimization of procedures for needs analysis
  • for the purpose of direct customer contact, advertising or market and opinion research, provided that you have not objected to the use of your data,

If you have given us your consent to the processing of personal data for certain purposes (e.g. use of telephone and e-mail or postal address for advertising purposes, dispatch of invitations to sales events or newsletters), the legality of this processing is given on the basis of your consent. A given consent can be revoked at any time. The revocation of the consent does not affect the legality of the data processed until the revocation.

d) To fulfil our legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR) or in the public interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e) GDPR)

As a bank, we must meet a wide range of legal requirements (e.g. under the German Banking Act (KWG), the Money Laundering Act (GwG), the Securities Trading Act (WpHG), tax laws (including the Fiscal Code (AO), Value Added Tax Act (UstG), Income Tax Act (EstG)) and banking supervisory requirements (e.g. the European Central Bank, the European Banking Supervisory Authority, the Deutsche Bundesbank and the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority). The purposes of processing include, but are not limited to, credit checks, identity and age checks, prevention of fraud and money laundering, compliance with tax control and reporting obligations, evaluation of your expertise, experience and knowledge of financial assets, and evaluation and management of risks to our company and its affiliates.

  • it is required by law (e.g. tax reporting obligations), or
  • you have given us your consent.
