  • The right to information (Art. 15 GDPR),

  • The right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR),

  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR),

  • The right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR),

Legal Bases for processing

The processing of your personal data may be based on the following legal grounds:

  • Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as our legal basis for processing operations where we obtain your consent for a specific processing purpose.

  • Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract, e.g. if you purchase a product. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.

  • Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR, insofar as we are subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations.

  • Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR in the event that vital interests of you or another natural person require the processing of personal data.

  • Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR applies on the basis of our legitimate interests, e.g. when using service providers as part of order processing, such as shipping service providers or when carrying out statistical surveys and analyses and logging registration procedures. Our interest is directed towards the use of a user-friendly, appealing and secure presentation as well as optimisation of our website, which serves our business interests as well as meeting your expectations.

 

Duration of storage and routine deletion of personal data

We process and store your personal data only for the period of time required to fulfil the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for, in laws or regulations. After the purpose has ceased to exist or has been fulfilled, your personal data will be deleted or blocked. 

 

In the case of blocking, deletion will take place as soon as legal, statutory or contractual retention periods do not conflict with this, there is no reason to assume that deletion would impair your interests worthy of protection and deletion would not cause a disproportionately high expense due to the special nature of the storage.

 

Collection of general data and information, so-called log files

If you visit our website for information purposes only, without providing personal data via registration or in any other way, only the Internet connection data that your browser transmits to our server will be processed. Our website collects a series of general data and information with each call, which is temporarily stored in log files of a server. A log file is created in the course of an automatic protocol of the processing computer system. The following can be recorded:

 

  • Access to the website (date, time and frequency)

  • How you arrived at the website (previous page, hyperlink etc.)

  • Amount of data sent

  • Which browser and browser version you are using

  • The operating system you are using

  • Which internet service provider you use

  • Your IP address, which your Internet access provider assigns to your computer when you connect to the Internet

 

The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b of the GDPR, as the collection and storage of this data is necessary for the operation of the website in order to ensure the functionality of the website and to deliver the content of our website correctly. 

 

In addition, the data serve us to optimise our website and to ensure the security of our IT systems and the processing is based in this respect on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. For this reason, the data is stored for a maximum of 7 days as a technical precaution.

 

We also use this data for the purposes of advertising, market research and to design our services to meet your needs by creating and evaluating user profiles under pseudonyms, but only if you have not exercised your right to object to this use of your data (see information on the right to object under "Your rights").

  • Payment Details

  • Billing Address

 

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR. We also process customer and prospect data for evaluation and marketing purposes. This processing is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR and serves our interest in further developing our offer and informing you specifically about Plutux Investments offers. Further data processing may take place if you have consented (Art. 6 para. 1 letter a) GDPR) or if this serves the fulfilment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 letter c) GDPR). 

 

Exercising our rights

Based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c and f GDPR, we use and store your personal data and technical information to the extent necessary to prevent or prosecute misuse or other illegal behaviour on our website, e.g. to maintain data security in the event of attacks on our IT systems. This also takes place insofar as we are legally obliged to do so, for example due to official or court orders, and for the exercise of our rights and claims as well as for legal defence.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f.) GDPR or Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR if the enquiry is aimed at concluding a contract. The data will be deleted when the purpose of the processing no longer applies, e.g. the enquiry has been conclusively answered.You can object to the processing of your personal data at any time by sending an e-mail to members@plutuxinvestments.com.

 

Use of customer data for direct marketing purposes

If you have provided us with your e-mail address when purchasing our Lazy Investor Starter Pack, we reserve the right to regularly send you e-mail offers for similar goods or services. We do not need to obtain your separate consent for this. In this respect, the data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest Art. 6 (1) lit. f.) GDPR in personalised direct advertising. If you have initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not send you any e-mails.

Cookies

We use cookies on our web sites. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device and can be read. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. Cookies can contain data that make it possible to recognise the device used. In some cases, however, cookies only contain information on certain settings that cannot be related to a specific person.

 

We use session cookies and permanent cookies on our web sites. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f.) GDPR and in the interest of optimising or enabling user guidance and adapting the presentation of our platform. You can set your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. You can also delete cookies at any time using the appropriate browser settings and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our web sites may then not be displayed optimally and some functions may no longer be technically available.

 

Insofar as you have given your consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f.) GDPR, we use the following cookies and other technologies from third-party providers on our web site. After the end of the purpose and the end of the use of the respective technology by us, the data collected in this context will be deleted. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

 

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Ltd. ("Google"). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the website by the users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

 

Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.

 

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation activated. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

 

The IP address transmitted by the user's browser will not be merged with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the website to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. 

 

Facebook Remarketing

Within our website, so-called "Facebook pixels" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"), are used. With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our offer as a target group for the display of advertisements, so-called "Facebook ads". Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our website. 

 

This means that with the help of the Facebook pixel we want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad.

 

The Facebook pixel is directly integrated by Facebook when our web sites are accessed and can save a so-called cookie, i.e. a small file, on your device. If you subsequently log in to Facebook or visit Facebook while logged in, your visit to our website will be noted in your profile. The data collected about you is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible. The processing of the data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data usage policy. Accordingly, you can find more information on how the remarketing pixel works and generally on the display of Facebook ads, in Facebook's data usage policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. 

 

You can object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and use of your data for the display of Facebook ads. To do so, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there on the settings for usage-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or declare the objection via the US page http://www.aboutads.info/choices/  or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ . The settings are platform-independent. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

 

Social Media

The data you enter on our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc. are published by the social media platform and are not used or processed by us for any other purpose at any time. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. Where applicable, we share your content on our site if this is a function of the social media platform and communicate with you via the social media platform. The legal basis is our legitimate interest. The data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication. 

 

If you wish to object to certain data processing over which we have an influence, please contact us. We will then examine your objection. If you send us a request on the social media platform, we may also refer you to other secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality, depending on the response required. You always have the option of sending us confidential enquiries to our address stated in the imprint.

 

As already stated, where the social media platform provider gives us the opportunity, we take care to design our social media pages to be as data protection compliant as possible. With regard to statistics that the provider of the social media platform makes available to us, we can only influence these to a limited extent and cannot switch them off. However, we make sure that no additional optional statistics are made available to us.

 

Data processing by the operator of the social media platform

The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. The web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform. As already explained, we can unfortunately hardly influence the web tracking methods of the social media platform. We cannot, for example, switch this off.

 

Please be aware: It cannot be ruled out that the provider of the social media platform uses your profile and behavioural data, for example to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. We have no influence on this. In this respect, we have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform.

 

Disclosure of personal data to third parties

Your personal data will only be passed on if there is a legal obligation to do so or to service providers and partner companies that have been carefully selected in advance and are contractually obliged to comply with the requirements of data protection law.

 

a) Disclosure within affiliated companies pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR

We pass on your personal data for the conclusion and processing of contracts for offers on our website to affiliated companies. This is particularly necessary so that you can use all our offers. If you contact a store or our customer hotline with questions, complaints or returns as well as other complaints, they will also receive access to your order data in order to be able to process your request.

 

b) Disclosure to service providers according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b and f GDPR

For the operation and optimisation of our website and our services and for the processing of contracts, various service companies work for us, e.g. for central IT services or the hosting of our website, for the payment and delivery of products or for the dispatch of newsletters, to whom we pass on the data required for the fulfilment of the task (e.g. name, address).

 

Some of these companies act for us by way of commissioned processing and may therefore use the data provided exclusively in accordance with our instructions. In this case, we are legally responsible for appropriate data protection precautions at the companies we commission. We therefore agree on specific data security measures with these companies and monitor them regularly.

 

In contrast to order processing, in the following cases we transmit data to third parties for their own use in order to process the contract. In the case of payment for goods to the payment service provider specified when the order was placed. 

 

We do not collect or store any payment transaction information such as credit card numbers or bank details during the payment process. You only provide this information directly to our payment service provider. The transmission of your personal information during an order transaction is encrypted using industry standard Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") technology, (SSL encryption version 3). Any credit card information you provide will not be stored by us, but will be encrypted and collected directly.

 

c) Disclosure to other third parties pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c and f GDPR

We will disclose your data to third parties or government agencies within the framework of existing data protection laws if we are legally obliged to do so, e.g. due to official or court orders, or if we are entitled to do so, e.g. because this is necessary for the prosecution of criminal offences or for the exercise and enforcement of our rights and claims.

 

Data transfer to third countries

As a service provider based outside the EU, we take additional measures to ensure an adequate level of data protection for the transfer of personal data in accordance with Art. 44 of the GDPR and thus ensure that the transfer is generally permissible and that the special requirements for a transfer to a third country are met (e.g. by concluding EU standard contracts and additional guarantees, supplementary technical and organisational measures such as encryption or anonymisation).

 

Children Data

Our website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children. If you become aware that your Child has provided us with Personal Data, without parental consent, please contact us and we take the necessary steps to remove that information from our server.

 

Changes 

This Policy Statement and our commitment to protecting the privacy of your personal data can result in changes to this Policy Statement. Please regularly review this policy to keep up to date with any changes.

 

Queries and Complaints 

Any comments or queries on this Policy Statement should be directed to us. If you believe that we have not complied with this Policy Statement or acted otherwise than in accordance with data protection law, then you should notify us.
