We are pleased that you are visiting our website. We attach great importance to data protection and data security in the use of our website. We therefore undertake to protect your privacy and treat your data in confidence. In the following, we would like to tell you which of your personal data we record during your visit to our website and for what purposes they are used.

What are personal data?

Personal data are items of information that can be used to find out about your personal or factual circumstances. Information that does not allow us to make a connection to you (or only with a disproportionate effort) is not personal data.

Collection and storage of personal data, types of data and purpose for which they are used

Such information will be stored in a so-called “logfile”. The IP addresses are anonymised by removing the last three digits before they are stored.

This information will be processed by third parties, including without limitation by our third-party hosting and website management service providers, in order to facilitate the use of the website and to ensure system security and stability. The processing of data to this extent is required in order to protect our legitimate interests. The stored information will be erased after 60 days at the latest.

The virtual data rooms for our investment programmes are provided by a third-party service provider.

Personal data will be erased after they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected and stored, unless they must be stored for a longer period of time based on statutory retention periods.

If you use hyperlinks

Our website contains hyperlinks to websites of other providers. By clicking on them you are transferred directly from our website to the other provider's website. This is visible by the change of URL. We accept no responsibility for the handling of your data on these external websites, because we have no control over whether these companies comply with data protection regulations. Please find out how these companies handle your personal data directly by looking at their websites.

Disclosure of personal data

In addition to the purposes specifically stipulated, we disclose your personal data to third parties based on your prior consent, based on a statutory obligation, if this is necessary in order to fulfil a contract we concluded with you or in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, and always to the extent there is no reason to believe that you have a compelling legitimate interest.

Data security

To the extent that we gather personal data we store it on specially protected servers. Access to it is restricted to a few, specially authorised individuals who are involved with technical, commercial or editorial aspects of the website.

To prevent the loss or misuse of data stored at GCP we take extensive technical and operating precautions, which are regularly reviewed and updated in line with technological developments.

We must nonetheless point out that the structure of the internet means that data protection regulations and the security measures described above may not be respected by third parties outside our control. In particular data transmitted in unencrypted form – even by email – can be read by third parties. This is something over which we have no technical control. It is your responsibility to protect the data you provide against misuse, by means of encryption or otherwise.

Information about /deletion of your personal data stored at GCP

We will be happy to tell you on request at any time whether your personal data is stored with us and if so, which data. If despite our efforts to ensure that the data are correct and up to date we should have stored any false data, we will rectify them without delay on request. If you ask us to delete the stored data we will comply with this request within the framework of statutory provisions. If they cannot be deleted for legal reasons, it may be possible to block the data instead. You have the right to data portability.

Right to object

To the extent we process your personal data based on legitimate interests, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation.

Should you have any questions regarding information, rectification and erasure or should you wish to object to the processing of your personal data, please contact our
