1. Introductory remarks
Data is the basis for us to provide an excellent service. Our most important capital, however, is the trust of our contractual partners. Protecting the data provided by you and collected by us when using our services therefore has the highest priority for us. Therefore the observance of the legal regulations to the data security is self-evident for us.
2. Scope of the processing of your data
4. Processing of your data
For the purposes mentioned above, we collect the following personal data about you:
– Date of birth,
– phone number,
– bank details,
– identity card details and
However, this data will only be used if you have given us your consent or if we need it to fulfil our contractual obligations.
Your address, e-mail address and telephone number will also be used to send you promotional messages and mailings about investment projects with information. We will also use your email address to periodically send you newsletters with the same and similar content as the promotional messages and mailings. You can find more information on the subject of “e-mail newsletters” in point 5.
The following information will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and procedures described.
Content of newsletter
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with information (hereinafter referred to as “newsletters”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Our newsletter contains general information on Danube Angels GmbH as well as current information on our crowd-investing projects and information on companies already financed.
Double-Opt-In and logging
The registration to our newsletter takes place in a so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. This means that you will receive an e-mail after registration asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with external e-mail addresses.
The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes storing the login and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Likewise the changes of your data stored with MailChimp are logged.
Use of the “MailChimp” dispatch service provider
The newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information for the optimization or improvement of its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and display of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them or pass them on to third parties.
To subscribe to the newsletter, we ask you to provide your email address and your first, last name and country of origin. Alternatively, you can register for the newsletter during the investment process. All you have to do is click on the box for newsletter registration at the end of the investment questionnaire.
Statistical survey and analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services on the basis of technical data or target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval points (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or access times.
Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor MailChimp’s aim to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
Online access and data management
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. At the same time, your consents to its dispatch via MailChimp and the statistical analyses expire. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.
You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter or you can write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel the newsletter.
