The responsible party pursuant to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with regard to the pro-cessing of personal data in connection with the web-site is Competo Capital Partners GmbH, Karlstrasse 12 - Karolinen Karree, 80333 Munich (“Competo”, “we”, “us”).
2. PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA
a) VISITING THE WEBSITE
aa) In general, if you are only using the website to obtain information (i.e. if you do not actively provide us with information), we do not collect personal data, with the exception of data that your browser automatically transmits to enable you to visit the website. This includes the following:
- The IP address of the requesting computer
- The date and time of accessing
- The volume of data transmitted in each case
- The browser type and browser version
- The operating system used
- The referrer URL
- The host name of the accessing computer
bb) The aforementioned processing of data occurs for the purpose of enabling use of the website (to establish a connection). In addition, the log file serves the evalua-tion of system security and stability and for adminis-trative purposes. The corresponding processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) Clause 1 f) GDPR (legit-imate interest, the legitimate interest follows from the above purpose).
b) COMMUNICATION BY EMAIL
Insofar as you contact us via the contact data provid-ed on the website or our contact form, we process the personal data you provide in this context (e.g. your email address in the event of a request via email) to respond to your request. The legal basis for the pro-cessing of the abovementioned personal data is Art. 6 (1) Clause 1 f) GDPR (legitimate interest, the legitimate interest being derived from the fact that we can only realise the action requested by the user (e.g. answer-ing an inquiry) through appropriate data processing). In addition, if the aim of the contact is to conclude a contract, Art. 6 (1) Clause 1 b) GDPR (performance of contract or pre-contractual measures) provides the legal basis for processing.

3. DISCLOSURE OF DATA TO THIRD PARTIES
The personal data collected in the context of use of the website will not be disclosed to third parties or transmitted in any other way without your consent, said policy being subject to other cases expressly described in this privacy statement.
We use external service providers where necessary to process personal data on our behalf (e.g. IT service providers). These service providers are carefully se-lected by us, process the corresponding personal data exclusively according to our instructions (proces-sors) and are inspected regularly by us. Processing agreements required pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR shall be concluded prior to commissioning. Your personal data shall under no circumstances be disclosed to third parties by the service providers employed on our behalf.
We may share your personal data with third parties if required to do so by law (e.g. at the request of a court or law enforcement agency), Art. 6 (1) Clause 1 c) GDPR (legal obligation) or if this is necessary pursu-ant to Art. 6 (1) Clause 1 b) GDPR for processing con-tractual relations with you. Furthermore, data disclo-sure on the basis of Art. 6 (1) Clause 1 f) GDPR may occur to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or for other reasons in our legitimate interest if there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legiti-mate interest in the non-disclosure of your data.
4. DURATION OF STORAGE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Unless otherwise stipulated in the other provisions of this privacy statement, we only save your personal data obtained by us in connection with use of the website for as long as this is particularly necessary to process your inquiries to us, and then only to the extent and insofar as we are obliged to do so due to mandatory statutory retention obligations. Insofar as we no longer need your data for the purposes de-scribed above, it will only be stored during the re-spective statutory retention period and will not be processed for other purposes.
5. YOUR RIGHTS
You have the right to demand information from us at any time about your personal data stored by us. Inso-far as the legal prerequisites exist, you also have rights with regard to us to the rectification, deletion or limitation of processing and to information about and data portability of the corresponding data. In addi-tion, you have the right to complain to the respective supervisory authority. If you have consented to the use of personal data, you may revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.
RIGHT TO OBJECT
If your personal data is processed by us on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) Clause 1 f) GDPR, you have the right to object to processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, insofar as this occurs for reasons that arise from your particular situation. Insofar as the objection is directed against processing of personal data for the purpose of direct market-ing, you have a general right to object without the need to specifying a particular situation.
You can also contact our Data Protection Officer direct-ly concerning data protection (including the assertion of your rights under Paragraph 5.).
