Table of contents 

We take the pro­tec­tion of your per­sonal data very seri­ously. It goes with­out say­ing that we always treat your per­sonal data in accor­dance with the statu­tory data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions. We have appointed an expert and reli­able exter­nal data pro­tec­tion offi­cer. The exter­nal data pro­tec­tion assign­ment is car­ried out by UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co KG.

In the fol­low­ing we would like to inform you about the pro­cess­ing of per­sonal data.

I. Collection and processing of personal data 

In prin­ci­ple, you can use our online offer with­out dis­clos­ing your iden­tity. If we request per­sonal data (such as name, address, e‑mail address or com­pany) on the web­site, e.g. in the con­text of con­tact forms or dur­ing login/registration, this is done in accor­dance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your vol­un­tar­ily given con­sent. It is also pos­si­ble to con­tact us via the e‑mail address pro­vided. In this case, the user’s per­sonal data trans­mit­ted with the e‑mail will be stored. The legal basis for the pro­cess­ing of data trans­mit­ted in the course of send­ing an e‑mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We use the infor­ma­tion for our own busi­ness pur­poses (such as send­ing the requested materials/information and busi­ness conversation).

The per­sonal data trans­mit­ted in the con­text of send­ing an e‑mail will be deleted after com­ple­tion of your inquiry and after expi­ra­tion of the tax and com­mer­cial stor­age obligations.

Once you have given your con­sent — for exam­ple, for the pur­pose of receiv­ing a newslet­ter or other inter­est­ing infor­ma­tion from our com­pany — you can revoke it at any time with­out giv­ing rea­sons with effect for the future. To do this, you can use the email address’info@bm‑’or another way men­tioned within the newsletter.

II. communication

We would like to point out that data trans­mis­sion on the Inter­net (e.g. com­mu­ni­ca­tion by e‑mail) can have secu­rity gaps. Com­plete pro­tec­tion of the data against access by third par­ties is not possible.

The use of con­tact data pub­lished within the frame­work of the imprint oblig­a­tion by third par­ties for the pur­pose of send­ing unso­licited adver­tis­ing and infor­ma­tion mate­ri­als is hereby expressly pro­hib­ited. The oper­a­tors of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unso­licited send­ing of adver­tis­ing infor­ma­tion, such as spam e‑mails.

III. cookies

This site does not use “cook­ies” as far as pos­si­ble. Cook­ies are text files that are stored on your com­puter for tech­ni­cal rea­sons to ensure func­tion­al­i­ties such as log­ging into the back­end (until the browser win­dow is closed) or to rec­og­nize your deci­sions such as send­ing the newslet­ter sub­scrip­tion (for 2 years) or deac­ti­vat­ing the newslet­ter sub­scrip­tion (for 2 weeks) or accept­ing the cookie infor­ma­tion (for 1 month) on your next visit. You can pre­vent the instal­la­tion of cook­ies by set­ting your browser accord­ingly. This can lead to func­tional lim­i­ta­tions if necessary.

IV. Logging

Each time the web­site is accessed, logs are cre­ated and processed for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­poses, whereby the indi­vid­ual user remains anonymous:

  • Refer­rer (page from whose link you have reached this Inter­net presence)
  • Search terms (for search engines as referrer)
  • IP address is stored for hacker attack detec­tion and trou­bleshoot­ing purposes
  • Browser type and ver­sion and oper­at­ing system
  • Time of access to the pages

The afore­men­tioned data is used on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­est pur­suant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO processed by us for the fol­low­ing purposes:

  • Ensur­ing a smooth con­nec­tion estab­lish­ment of the Inter­net presence,
  • Ensur­ing that the use of our Inter­net pres­ence is as error-free as possible,
  • Eval­u­a­tion of sys­tem secu­rity and sta­bil­ity, and
  • for other admin­is­tra­tive purposes.

We reserve the right to check this data ret­ro­spec­tively if we become aware of spe­cific indi­ca­tions of unlaw­ful use. The data is deleted imme­di­ately when it is no longer required to achieve the pur­pose, but at the lat­est after two months.

V. Disclosure of the data

A trans­fer to third par­ties, for com­mer­cial or non-com­mer­cial pur­poses, will not take place with­out your express con­sent. We will only dis­close your per­sonal data to third par­ties if this is legally per­mit­ted [such as on the basis of Arti­cle 6 DSGVO] and/or required. In some cases, we use ser­vice providers for the legally required com­mis­sioned pro­cess­ing of data; for exam­ple, the web­site is hosted by Host Europe GmbH and main­tained by XP.DT. The full respon­si­bil­ity for the data pro­cess­ing remains with us. Fur­ther­more, we partly use plu­g­ins from other providers on our web­site; you can find more details below.

We would like to point out that we may also pass on your per­sonal data to other com­pa­nies within our group (Thüringer Auf­baubank) for the above-men­tioned pur­poses. The data trans­fer takes place on the basis of a legit­i­mate inter­est in order to be able to offer you a com­pre­hen­sive range of our services.

VI Liability for own contents

The con­tents of these pages were cre­ated with the utmost care. How­ever, we can­not guar­an­tee the accu­racy, com­plete­ness and time­li­ness of the con­tent. As a ser­vice provider, we are respon­si­ble for our own con­tent on these pages in accor­dance with gen­eral laws.

VII Liability for links (contents of external providers)

These own con­tents are to be dis­tin­guished from cross-ref­er­ences (“links”) to con­tents pro­vided by other providers. We have no influ­ence on their con­tent; the respec­tive provider or oper­a­tor of the pages is always respon­si­ble for the con­tent of the linked pages.

XII Rights of the data subjects

We hereby inform you that pur­suant to Arti­cle 15 et seq. DSGVO, under the con­di­tions defined therein, you have the right to infor­ma­tion about the per­sonal data in ques­tion, as well as the right to rec­ti­fi­ca­tion or era­sure, or to restric­tion of pro­cess­ing or a right to object to pro­cess­ing, as well as the right to data porta­bil­ity. You also have the right to lodge a com­plaint with a data pro­tec­tion super­vi­sory author­ity pur­suant to Arti­cle 77 of the GDPR if you con­sider that the pro­cess­ing of per­sonal data con­cern­ing you infringes this Reg­u­la­tion. If the pro­cess­ing is based on Arti­cle 6(1)(a) DSGVO or Arti­cle 9(2)(a) DSGVO (con­sent), you also have the right to with­draw your con­sent at any time with­out affect­ing the law­ful­ness of the pro­cess­ing car­ried out on the basis of the con­sent until withdrawal.

XIII. Amendment of our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adjust this pri­vacy pol­icy from time to time to ensure that it always com­plies with the cur­rent legal require­ments or to imple­ment changes to our ser­vices in the pri­vacy pol­icy, e.g. when intro­duc­ing new ser­vices. The new pri­vacy pol­icy will then apply to your next visit.

Analysis of the use of the website


We use the MATOMO web ana­lyt­ics tool to opti­mize the user expe­ri­ence. This is not an exter­nal ser­vice provider, but soft­ware that we run on our own web server. MATOMO only col­lects usage data if you have not acti­vated the ‘Do-not-Track’ set­ting in your web browser. Fur­ther­more, we only record usage data in anonymized form, which does not allow any con­clu­sions to be drawn about indi­vid­ual users. If you have not enabled ‘Do-not-Track’, you can dis­able track­ing in our cookie ban­ner or below. We save this set­ting in a cookie so that we can take your wishes in this regard into account on your next visit.

Our web­site also uses the sym­bol fonts from is a ser­vice of Fonti­cons Inc. Our legit­i­mate inter­est in using this tech­nol­ogy is based on the fact that our cur­rent devel­op­ment tools do not yet sup­port local instal­la­tion of FontAwesome’s icon libraries, and that with­out the icons, con­tent and user expe­ri­ence on the web­site would be sig­nif­i­cantly com­pro­mised. We are cur­rently work­ing on a solution.

To trans­fer FontAwesome’s resources, your browser estab­lishes a direct con­nec­tion to FontAwesome’s server and obtains the data directly from there. To do this, your IP address must be trans­mit­ted to FontAwesome’s server. If you do not want this to hap­pen, you can block con­nec­tions to in your oper­at­ing sys­tem or a suit­able browser add-on. In this case, the dis­play of our web­site is impaired.

Our web­site inte­grates selec­tive video con­tent from the YouTube site oper­ated by Google. The oper­a­tor of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube video, a con­nec­tion to the YouTube servers is estab­lished. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have vis­ited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surf­ing behav­ior directly to your per­sonal pro­file. You can pre­vent this by log­ging out of your YouTube account. For more infor­ma­tion on the han­dling of user data, please refer to YouTube’s pri­vacy pol­icy at: [externe Seite]


We use the provider Vimeo, among oth­ers, for the inte­gra­tion of videos. Vimeo is oper­ated by Vimeo, LLC, head­quar­tered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.

On some of our Inter­net pages, we inte­grate video con­tent from the provider Vimeo. If you call up the Inter­net pages of our Inter­net pres­ence pro­vided with a Vimeo video, a con­nec­tion is estab­lished to the Vimeo servers and the video is dis­played. This trans­mits to the Vimeo server which of our Inter­net pages you have vis­ited. If you are logged in as a Vimeo mem­ber, Vimeo assigns this infor­ma­tion to your per­sonal user account. When using the con­tent, such as click­ing on the start but­ton of a video, this infor­ma­tion is also assigned to your user account. You can pre­vent this assign­ment by log­ging out of your Vimeo user account before using our web­site and delet­ing the cor­re­spond­ing cook­ies from Vimeo. For more infor­ma­tion on data pro­cess­ing and pri­vacy notices by Vimeo, see [externe Seite].

Guidance on the prevention of money laundering, terrorist financing and other criminal activities

Money laun­der­ing pre­ven­tion is an impor­tant tool in the fight against orga­nized crime. Ser­vices pro­vided by banks and also by cap­i­tal man­age­ment com­pa­nies are mis­used to “laun­der” ille­gally acquired funds and to chan­nel them into the legal finan­cial and eco­nomic sys­tem. There­fore, cap­i­tal man­age­ment com­pa­nies are legally obliged under the Ger­man Money Laun­der­ing Act (Geld­wäschege­setz, GwG) and the Ger­man Invest­ment Code (Kap­i­ta­lan­lagege­set­zbuch, KAGB)) to take mea­sures to com­bat money laundering.

The duties to pre­vent money laun­der­ing, ter­ror­ist financ­ing and other crim­i­nal acts are per­formed by the Thüringer Auf­baubank — “Cen­tral Office”. If you have any indi­ca­tions of sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances or would like more infor­ma­tion about money laun­der­ing, financ­ing of ter­ror­ism, other crim­i­nal acts, please con­tact us!
