3. Collection of general data and information

The website of BPM - Berlin Portfolio Management GmbH collects a series of general data and information every time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. We may record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the Website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, BPM - Berlin Portfolio Management GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated statistically by BPM - Berlin Portfolio Management GmbH, also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique session ID.

7.9 Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European legislator and regulator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on it or, in a similar manner, significantly affects it; unless the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the person concerned and the responsible party, or is permitted by European Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation is adequate to safeguard rights and liberties and the legitimate interests of the affected person or with the express consent of the affected person.

If the decision to conclude or fulfill a contract between the person concerned and the person responsible is necessary or if it is made with the express consent of the person concerned, BPM - Berlin Portfolio Management GmbH shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the affected person, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the responsible party, to express his / her own position and to contest the decision.

If the affected person wishes to assert their right of withdrawal of consent, they may at any time contact our data protection officer or another employee of the responsible party (Article 7 (3) GDPR / DSGVO).

8. Data protection for applications and in the application procedure

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends appropriate application documents electronically, for example by e-mail, to the controller. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the decision of refusal, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

9. Data protection regulations on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

BPM - Berlin Portfolio Management GmbH may use "Google Analytics", a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies (see above), which enable an analysis of the use of the Internet pages by them. Information generated by cookies about the use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States:

The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

In the event that IP anonymization is activated on these Internet pages, the IP address of the person concerned will be reduced by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to Google servers in the USA and only shortened there. IP anonymization is active on these Internet pages. On behalf of the person responsible for this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the Internet pages, to compile reports on the activities on the Internet pages and to provide the person responsible with further services associated with the use of the Internet pages.

The IP address transmitted by an Internet browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. The person concerned can prevent the storage of the cookies by an appropriate setting in their Internet browser software. However, BPM - Berlin Portfolio Management GmbH points out to the user that in this case he may not be able to use all functions of these Internet pages in full. The person concerned can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the website (including their IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the Internet browser extension available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Further information on the use of data for advertising purposes by Google, setting and objection possibilities can be found on Google's websites:

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/ ("Use of data by Google when using our partners' websites or apps"),

http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads ("Use of data for advertising purposes"),

http://www.google.de/settings/ads ("Manage information Google uses to show you advertisements") and

http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ ("Determine what ad Google shows you").

10. Legal basis of the processing

Article 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR / DSGVO serves BPM - Berlin Portfolio Management GmbH as a legal basis for processing transactions for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the person concerned is a party, as is the case for example with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR / DSGVO. The same applies to such processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR / DSGVO.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. Processing would then be based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. d of the GDPR / DSGVO.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR / DSGVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. Such processing procedures are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR / DSGVO).

11. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR / DSGVO (see above), it is in our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the well-being of our employees and our shareholders.

12. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide them

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In some cases it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned provides us with personal data which we subsequently process. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded. Before the person concerned provides personal data, he or she can contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform you on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or required for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.
