III. Type, purpose and lawfulness of data processing
1. Log files
Each time you access our website, our system automatically records data and information from your computer system. Specifically, the system collects the following data as part of this process:
- information about the browser type and version used;
- the user's operating system;
- the user's IP address;
- date and time of access.
We collect this data in order to safeguard the functional capability of our website, and – in the event of attacks on our internet presence – in order to be able to gather indications for countermeasures, or to secure evidence for any criminal prosecution. Data in the log files will be deleted after 31 days following collection, unless it must be retained for a period of two years under a legal obligation in exceptional cases (upon occurrence of a security incident). The legal basis for processing this data is our overriding legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) f GDPR, as well as the legal obligation (if applicable) under Article 6 (1) c GDPR in conjunction with section 25a of the German Banking Act (KWG).

You can use the contact form on our website to send a message to us. When using the contact form, we will process the contents of your message (in addition to the personal data set out under 1. above):
- first name, surname, subject, e-mail, message (mandatory fields);

Your message to us will be transmitted using end-to-end encryption, without any possibility for third parties to access the message. We will accept and acknowledge the contents of your message with your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) a GDPR. We will retain your message for a period of six months following processing, and will delete the message thereafter – unless a longer retention period is required, for statutory or contractual reasons, given the contents of the message or its context.
