We at Deutsche Invest Capital Partners GmbH (“DICP”) consider our client’s trust in the protection of corporate and personal data (data privacy) to be of great value. Furthermore, DICP abides to all applicable data protection acts and endeavours to continuously improve data protection.
1) Operation of the website
DICP processes your personal data to present the information that is available on this website and to provide the services offered on this website.
Unless it is explicitly stated otherwise in the following sections the legal basis for this processing of data is Article 6(1)f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), i.e. a balancing of interests – based on DICP’s legitimate interest to provide this website and the services offered on it to internet users.
2) Processed data
2.1 Data you enter
For the purposes described above DICP particularly uses any data you may enter on this website (e.g. using a contact form, or when subscribing to an email newsletter). DICP processes these data you have entered to handle and to answer your request.
2.2 Automatically collected data
To present the right information to you on this website DICP also processes the following data:
- The address of the web page on this website you visit
- The address of the web page you visited immediately before (the “referrer”)
- Date and time of your visit
- Properties of your device, particularly its operating system, the browser you use and your browser’s display window size
- Your device’s IP address in the internet
Randomly assigned ID numbers, which DICP and third parties working for DICP store on your device. With these ID numbers DICP and the service providers working for DICP can recognize your device. This makes it possible to link your current website visit to your previous website visits. Technically these ID numbers are stored in so-called “cookies” on your device.
3) Website analytics
DICP strives to present the most relevant information to the users of this website. DICP therefore uses tools to measure how this website is being used. With the help of these tools DICP particularly collects the following kind of information:
- On which links on other websites do users click to get to this website?
- Which pages of this website are visited when, how often, and in which order?
- Which information do the website users look for?
- On which links or offers do the website users click?>
Based on these kinds of information DICP creates statistics which help to answer the following questions:
- Which pages of the website are particularly attractive for the users?
- Which kinds of information are most interesting for the users?
- Which offers should DICP make to its users?
For these purposes DICP particularly uses the automatically collected data described in Section 2.2 above. The data are always stored pseudonymously (i.e. under a randomly assigned ID number).
The legal basis for this processing of data is Article 6(1)f) GDPR (balancing of interests, based on DICP’s legitimate interest to tailor the website to its users’ interests and needs).
3.2 Google Analytics
One of the tools used is Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”).
Google Analytics uses the “cookies” mentioned above in section 2.2. Your browser transmits the information created with the help of these cookies on your use of this website to Google servers in the USA, where they are stored for up to 14 months. Currently there is no decision of the EU Commission that the USA generally provide an adequate level of protection for personal data. Google undertakes, however, to comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use and retention of personal information from European Union member countries. More information in this regard is available here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7105316?hl=en
More information on the handling of user data within Google Analytics is available in Google’s privacy notice at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en

4) External service providers
DICP uses various external services providers to operate this website (e.g. data center operators or newsletter service providers). To the extent it is necessary these service providers also process personal data. DICP diligently selects and supervises its service providers. They process the data only in accordance with DICP’s instructions and are also bound by this privacy statement.
5) Retention periods
DICP stores personal data only as long as it is necessary for the purposes described herein, or as long as it is necessary to comply with statutory retention periods.
