Investix Data Protection Policy

This website is maintained by Investix Asset Management GmbH (in further text “Investix”). We fully respect your right to privacy. Any personal data you provide will be used for the purpose for which you supply it and will be treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality, strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Acts and applicable EU directives. It will only be shared, if necessary, in accordance with law and where you have given consent.

This statement relates to our privacy practices in connection with this website. Some technical terms used in this statement are explained at the end of this page.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679

is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

What is “personal data”?

Personal data means data relating to a person who is or can be identified either from the data itself or in conjunction with other information that is in, or is likely to come into, the possession of Investix. It covers any information that relates to an identifiable, living individual. This data can be held on computers or in manual files.

Data Controller

A “data controller” means a person who, either alone or with others, controls the contents and use of personal data. Investix is a data controller. Address is Investix Asset Management GmbH, 81 Friedrichstrasse, Berlin 10117, Germany.

Investix obligations

Our obligations under the The General Data Protection Regulation are that:

Investix takes its obligations very seriously and adopts the strongest line in relation to the misuse of customer information by any of its staff. Any breach of trust with regard to the confidentiality of information is treated as serious misconduct under the Disciplinary Code and can lead to sanctions up to and including dismissal.

Collection and use of personal information

This website does not collect any personal data, apart from information that you volunteer (for example, when filling a form) and your IP address. Any information you provide in this way is used only for the use for which you provide it, such as:

Information We receive from other sources.

Others may post, write about and ‘tag’ you, or link to your profile through the social networks or comment section. You and others may post content that includes information about you on our website.

We sometimes work with third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers and search information providers) and may receive information about you from them. At present these services are:

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We use your personal information in the following ways:

Except as set out in this Data Protection Policy or otherwise agreed by you, we will not share your personal information with third parties (such as marketing companies) or use your personal information other than for our internal purposes.

We do not store credit card details.

We monitor for and try to prevent security breaches.

Right of Access

A person has a right to be given a copy of his/her personal data. This subject access request (SAR) must be in writing through the postal service and is free of charge. You can make a subject access request by writing to info@investix.de. Your request should be as specific as possible, to enable us to identify where the particular data is held and also include evidence of your own identity such as a photocopy of your passport or photocopy of your driving license. A response to your access request will issue to you as soon as is possible and in any event within forty days.

Data Protection Acts set out a small number of circumstances in which your right to see your personal records can be limited. This is necessary in order to strike a balance between the rights of the individual, on the one hand, and some important needs of civil society, on the other hand. For example, the right of access to medical data is restricted in some very limited circumstances, where the health and mental well-being of the individual might be affected by obtaining access to the data. Your right to obtain access to examination results and to see information relating to other people is also curtailed.

Right of rectification or deletion

Under section 13 b) of the GDPR a person has a right to have his/her personal data corrected, if inaccurate, or erased, if there is not a legitimate reason for retaining the data. Investix makes every effort to ensure that your personal data is accurate and only retained for as long as it is required. If you have reason to believe that your personal data held by Investix is not accurate or should no longer be retained you can write to Investix on the issue setting out clearly what personal data is at issue and the reasons why you consider it to be inaccurate and/or why Investix should no longer retain it. There is no fee for this service. Write to Investix Asset Management GmbH, Friedrichstrasse 81, 10117 Berlin, Germany.

Right to revoke permission

Under section 13 c) of the GDPR a person has a right to revoke his/her permission to use their personal data at any time not affecting the legitimacy of the usage of such data prior to the revocation.

Concerns over Data Protection

If you are concerned that an official has accessed your personal information illegally and or that your personal data may have been disclosed to a 3rd party illegally you can make a formal written complaint to:

Investix Asset Management GmbH, 81 Friedrichstrasse, Berlin 10117, Germany.

The matter will be investigated by Investix Asset Management GmbH and you will be notified regarding the outcome of the investigation as soon as possible.
