2. Collection of Personal Data
Insofar as this is permitted, we also obtain certain data from publicly accessible sources (e.g. debt collection registers, land registers, commercial registers, press, Internet) or receive such data from authorities and other third parties. In addition to the data that you provide to us directly, the categories of personal data that we receive about you from third parties include, in particular, information from public registers, information in connection with your professional functions and activities, information about you that people from your environment (family, advisors, legal representatives, etc.) provide to us so that we can conclude or process contracts with you or with your involvement (e.g. references, powers of attorney, information about your legal status, etc.). References, powers of attorney, information on compliance with legal requirements such as the fight against money laundering and export restrictions, information from banks, insurance companies, sales and other contractual partners of ours on the use or provision of services by you (e.g. payments made, purchases made), information from the media and Internet about your person (insofar as this is appropriate in the specific case, e.g. in the context of an application, customer acquisition, marketing, etc.).
3. Purposes of Data Processing
We process your personal data primarily for the purpose of initiating and processing contracts with you (e.g. as a customer or employee) and/or with third parties (e.g. your employer as a service provider or business partner of ours). We also use your data to check and respond to your inquiries (or a job application) or to communicate with you in other ways (e.g. sending newsletters or responding to contact inquiries). We may also use your data for the following purposes:
- Ensuring the availability and security of our website;
- Improvement and further development of our services and website;
- Compliance with legal and/or regulatory obligations, in particular anti-money laundering regulations;
- Enforcement of or defense against legal claims in and out of court proceedings;
- Protection of other legitimate interests;
- Automated individual decisions.
We generally refrain from making automated individual decisions, i.e. decisions that are based exclusively on automated processing (without human influence) and that are associated with a legal consequence for you (e.g. refusal to conclude a contract) or that significantly affect you in some other way. Should we make such decisions in exceptional cases, you will be informed of this on a case-by-case basis.

10. Storage Period
We process your personal data for as long as is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual and/or legal obligations or otherwise for the purposes pursued with the processing, i.e. e.g. for the duration of the entire contractual or employment relationship (i.e. from the initiation, execution to the termination of the contract) as well as beyond that in accordance with any statutory retention and documentation obligations. It is possible that personal data may be stored for the period in which claims can be asserted against us and insofar as we are otherwise required to do so by law and regulation (in particular due to money laundering regulations) or our legitimate business interests require this (e.g. for evidence and/or documentation purposes). As soon as the purposes and/or laws no longer require it, your data will be deleted or anonymized.
11. Data Secutity
We take appropriate security measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your personal data, to protect it against unauthorized or unlawful processing and to counteract the risks of loss, unintentional alteration, unwanted disclosure or unauthorized access.
