The protection of your personal data in the collection, processing and use of this data during your visit to the homepage of M.M.Warburg & CO (AG & Co.) KGaA and its branches – henceforth M.M.Warburg & CO – is very important to us. Your data will be protected within the framework of legal regulations.
We apply appropriate, technical and organisational security measures to protect your data from manipulation, unauthorised access, or other unauthorised use as well as from loss, deletion, access, alteration or dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. Websites, on which we collect personal data are encrypted and certified by the authorised encryption certification institutions. For online banking, further security mechanisms apply. A firewall system prevents unauthorised external access.
Collection and processing of personal data
For internal system-related and statistical purposes, each time these internet sites are accessed and each retrieval of a file stored on these sites is recorded. Recorded are:
the name of the retrieved file, date and time of the retrieval, the transferred data volume, notification of successful retrieval, the web browser and the domain making the request. Additionally the IP addresses of the computers making the requests are recorded.
Data collected for this purpose are either deleted after 14 days or are made anonymous for statistical purposes and deleted after four weeks.
Further personal data is only collected if the user of the website makes submissions voluntarily, for instance in the context of a survey or registration for personalised services or over the user’s browser settings.
Data recorded in the course of accessing the internet offering is only transferred to third parties in so far as we are obliged to do so, legally or by judicial decision, or if the transfer is required for legal or criminal prosecution in the event of attacks on our internet infrastructure. A transfer for other purposes does not take place.
Advertising, newsletters and other notifications
When you register for the receipt of information, other products or the receipt of an e-mail newsletter, data is collected that we need to provide you with the relevant service. Depending on the service, data like title, academic title, surname, forename, address, telephone number and e-mail address are collected. The obligatory data fields are clearly signalled with the *-sign. These data are only stored for as long as it is required to provide the service.
You can reject at any time the processing and use of your personal data for advertising purposes. A declaration of consent for the use of the data given once can be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future. Instructions for the deregistration can be found in every newsletter (see also the section on Data Protection Information according to the EU General Data Protection Regulation)
In the event that informational material related to financial products of M.M.Warburg & CO is ordered, we use the personal data submitted by you solely within M.M.Warburg & CO. We do not forward the data to third parties without your expressed consent.
Access data and cookies
When using our websites, text data is activated which is stored on your hard-drive and which enables certain information to be provided to us. These data are so-called cookies and supercookies (generally, “cookies”). This storage helps us to improve the design of our digital offering and to make it easier for you to use. The cookies used by us cannot be assigned to particular individuals. With the activation of the cookies, an identification number is attributed. Your data are not allocated to this identification number.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by activating the relevant settings on your browser; we would like to point out however that, under certain circumstances, the (uninterrupted) use of our digital offering or our financial services may then not be possible.
On-site targeting, re-targeting, and conversion tracking
On the basis of our legitimate interests according to GDPR Art.6.1(f), cookies are used within our digital offering to collect data for the improvement of the digital offering. This data is not used to identify you personally but serves solely an evaluation of the user behaviour under a pseudonym.
For this purpose, we have integrated the Matomo component to this internet site. Matomo is an open-source software tool for the gathering, collection and evaluation of data related to the behaviour of visitors to internet sites, which enable us to understand the origin of the visitors and clicks and are used by us for the optimisation of the internet site and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
In the context of this technical process, we gain knowledge of personal data, like the IP address of the person concerned, which serves, among other things, to help us understand the origin of the visitor and the clicks.
Matomo places a cookie in the IT system of the person concerned. Via the cookie, personal information like the access time, the location of the outgoing access, and the frequency of the visits to our internet site are stored. For each visit to our internet site, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to our server and stored. We do not pass on this personal data to third parties.
As already mentioned, the person concerned can, at any time, prevent and thus permanently reject the placement of cookies by activating the relevant settings of the internet browser used. Such internet browser settings would also prevent Matomo from placing a cookie on the IT system of the person concerned. Additionally a cookie previously placed by Matomo can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programme.
Furthermore, the person concerned has the option to reject and prevent the recording of data related to the use of this internet site generated by Matomo. To do so, the person concerned must activate the “Do Not Track” setting within the browser.
With the setting of the opt-out cookies, however, there is a possibility that the internet sites of the Data Controller may no longer be fully usable by the person concerned.
Further information and the relevant data protection provisions of Matomo can be accessed under: https://matomo.org/privacy/
IP anonymisation is used on our website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. Within the framework of the data commissioning agreement which the website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to evaluate website use and website activity and provides services associated with internet use.
Here too, you have the option of preventing the cookie from being stored on your device by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restriction if your browser does not allow cookies.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc.
