Data Protection at FCH Finance City Hamburg GmbH 

FCH Finance City Hamburg GmbH operates the website www.finance-city.hamburg. 

Within the framework of the binding regulations of the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), we are required to inform you of the following points when you use our website. 

I. Personal Data Collection and Processing When Visiting This Website 

1. Personal Data 

Personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 DSGVO is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. E.g., name, address, e-mail addresses or date of birth. Information about your usage behaviour on this website can also be personal data if it is possible to draw conclusions about your person from this information. 

2 Personal Data Processing Scope 

(1) As a matter of principle, we only process personal data as far as this is necessary to provide a functioning website and our content and services. When you access our website, general information is automatically stored in a log file. 

Your IP address, the name of the file accessed, the date and time of the access, the description of the type of web browser used, the amount of data transferred and whether the access was successful are temporarily stored. This data is also generated when accessing any other website on the Internet, so it is not a special function of this website. The data is stored for the purpose of maintaining integrity (e.g., to defend against/trace spam/DDoS attacks); an evaluation of this data is carried out exclusively for statistical purposes in anonymous form. No further personal data will be stored. 

We delete the above-mentioned personal data after 30 days. 

The legal basis for the storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 (1) para.1 sub. f) DSGVO. Since date collection is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website, you cannot object to the processing. 

(2) We also use cookies to provide a functional website. 

a) What are cookies? 

Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in your computer’s main memory or on ist hard drive. Many cookies contain a what is known as a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie by which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites visited to distinguish the browser of a given person from other internet browsers, but cookies cannot identify you as a person. Only the cookie itself is identified on your device. 

(b) Types of cookies 

There are different types of cookies, namely technically necessary cookies and optional cookies. Optional cookies are used, for example, to make a website user-friendly or to display advertising that matches your interests. 

We only use technically necessary cookies. These cookies are essential for the functionality of our website; without them the website’s usability would be limited. The user data collected through technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles. 

c) Legal basis 

Technically necessary cookies are ‘absolutely necessary’ cookies as defined by the ePrivacy Directive 2002/58 EC and do not require consent. The legal basis for their use is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 sub.f) DSGVO. (Legitimate interest)

In the case of direct marketing, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
