When you visit our web pages, we collect and process the information with which you provide us (voluntarily) on our website, or which you transfer to us in any other way (particularly automatically). This enables us to optimize our services, content and advertising to meet your needs and also to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.  


1.  Data automatically transferred by you, usage data, tracking

For statistical purposes and to optimize the services we provide, when you use our homepage, we automatically collect information transferred to us by your browser, including but not limited to the following information:

  • the browser type and version that you are using
  • the operating system that you are using
  • the referrer URL (the page that you had just previously visited)  
  • the host name of the accessing computer (your IP address)
  • the date and time of the server request

In our system, we use HTTP cookies [see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie] and flash cookies [see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_Shared_Object]. These cookies enable us to identify you and to ensure that you can use our services easily and without any problems. You can prevent or restrict the storage of cookies in your browser, but please note that it may not be possible to use our services if the storage of cookies is not permitted. Moreover, other technical means may be used (e.g., JavaScript – see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript) to collect and analyze information about user behavior (e.g., duration of your visit to our pages, click paths, mouseover information, scrolling, etc.). Information collected in this way helps us to optimize our services and web page structure, and to display the content that is most likely to meet your needs.

To this end, this website uses technology from Live Person, Inc., USA, and from Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses text files called “cookies”, which are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyze your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for the website operators, and to provide other services regarding website and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law, or if the third parties in question have been employed by Google to process the data. Under no circumstances will Google connect your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software; but we would advise you that this may mean that you cannot enjoy the full benefits of all the functions of this website. By using this website, you thereby give your consent for Google to process data gathered from you in the way described above and for the purposes described above.

If you do not use your username and password to log in to our website, the abovementioned information is stored and analyzed entirely anonymously; in this event, we have no way of knowing your identity. For information concerning use of the web pages by a registered (and logged-in) user, see III below.

2. Ordering the newsletter; marketing and advertising

You have the option of ordering an e-mail newsletter by filling in an online form on our website. If you order this newsletter, we will regularly provide you with interesting news about our company and our products. Once you have entered your first name and surname and your e-mail address in our online form, you will receive an automated message with a confirmation link. The e-mail address that you have entered will not be recorded by our newsletter distributor until you have clicked on this confirmation link. You can cancel the newsletter at any time using the link provided at the end of the newsletter.

You can also receive additional interesting information and offers from the adblue company group and from partner companies of the adblue company group. You will receive this information only if you make a separate declaration of consent to receive it – this declaration can be issued together with the newsletter order. Your data will not generally be passed on to partner companies of the adblue company group or to other third parties; any promotional information from partner companies will be sent to you directly by us, or by another member of the adblue company group.

If you use our portals as a registered user, or use our adblue TradeMaster stock exchange software, the following applies, in addition to the abovementioned conditions:

1. Registration details

2. Data automatically transferred by you, usage data, tracking

Regarding usage data that we collect when you use our web portals, the conditions given above under II Point 1 apply initially.

When you first use our members’ area, however, you also thereby give your consent for us to link the collected usage data with your profile – i.e., for us to add these data to your personal data. This means that we can allocate usage data to your personal identity.

We log the individual details of each transaction that you perform using our system, specifically:

  • Purchase and sale orders
  • Issuing of stop, limit, breakeven and trailing orders

Transaction data also include usage data directly associated with the transaction (“transaction-specific usage data”, e.g., the click on a specific button, including date, time etc.).

These transaction data are saved to your profile and are thereby linked with your master data and additional master data. They may also be linked with usage data if we regard this as necessary in order to document the process.

Please note: For legal reasons (documentation and storage obligations), we will store transaction data together with the master data for a period of at least 10 years.

We can transfer personal data collected when you use our web portals and/or our stock exchange software to the members of the adblue company group and to any other future members of this group, especially for the purpose of commissioned data processing. Moreover, master data and transaction data from your use of our stock exchange software can be transferred to contractually associated white label brokerage firms or banks. Data is transferred to these third parties exclusively for the purpose of checking and verifying transaction activity. Likewise, the recipients of these data are contractually bound to fulfill the purpose of the data transfer and are obliged to delete the data as soon as this purpose has been fulfilled, or as soon as it becomes apparent that this purpose cannot be fulfilled. In this context, it is possible that the data will be transferred abroad, possibly to a non-European country.

6. Data processing abroad

adblue financial systems GmbH reserves the right to operate servers located outside the territory of the European Union. adblue guarantees that data stored on these servers will receive the same standard of protection as that required within Germany and the European Union.  The same applies to the transfer of data to the members of the adblue group based outside the EU.

 
7. Data protection technology

adblue financial systems GmbH always ensures that its server’s security technology is up-to-date. If technically suitable, secure transfer channels (SSL connections) are provided for gathering personal data. Moreover, the employees and third parties involved in technical system maintenance are obligated by adblue to maintain secrecy.


8. Right of information


If adblue has collected personal data, it will provide information about the stored data upon request. If necessary, this can also be provided via an automated process.
