Legal basis for the processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data through the use of Cookies is your consent in connection with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Cookies that are necessary to provide our telemedia services serve our legitimate interests, which is why they are supported by Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Purpose of data processing

Necessary cookies: The purpose of Necessary Cookies is to simplify the use of our website. Without cookies we would not be able to offer some functions of our website. For these functions, your browser must be recognized even after a page change. This is our legitimate interest in setting technically necessary cookies in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

We need technically necessary cookies for the following applications:

  • Session cookie

  • A login cookie that stores user information

  • A remember me cookie

We will not create any user profiles with the user data collected by the technically necessary cookies.

Cookies that are not technically necessary: The use of non-essential cookies is for analysis purposes and to improve the quality and content of the website. These "Analysis Cookies" tell us how users use our website. With this knowledge we can optimize the website offer.

As 3rd party cookies we use:

  • Google Analytics

  • Google AdWords

  • DoubleClick

  • Google Tag Manager

  • Zoho

This data will not be merged with other data sources.

This data is also stored in the server log files of our system. Only pseudonymized IP addresses of visitors to the website are stored. At web server level, this is done by storing an IP address 123.123.123.XXX in the log file instead of the actual IP address of the visitor, e.g. 123.123.123.123.123, whereby XXX is a random value between 1 and 254. The creation of a personal reference is not possible for us. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not occur here either.

Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Purpose of data processing

We pursue the following goals in the processing of user data:

The temporary storage of the information captured by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Storage period of data in the system and log files

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data to provide the website, this is the case when the session in question has ended.

If the data is stored in log files, the following applies:

We store the data on our servers for a period of 7 days. They are then deleted. Backups of this data are stored for a total of 14 days in encrypted form.

The data may also be temporarily stored for as long as is necessary to protect CEPRES's legal rights or to ward off unjustified legal claims.

Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object this process.

8.    Registration for Private Equity Services

We permanently document your consent to be contacted by e-mail for the purposes of proof. This data will be deleted if it does not have to be kept for documentation purposes under competition or data protection laws any longer.

Possibility of objection and removal

You can change the data stored about you at any time. You can terminate your registration on our site by sending us an email or sending us a letter explaining your request. We will confirm receipt of your request within 48 hours and explain the next steps.

You can revoke your consent to us contacting you us by e-mail at any time, e.g. via the contact form or by e-mail. We will then delete your e-mail address unless there is another legal basis for the processing, for example your consent to still receive the newsletter.

Purpose of data processing

The collection of the user's e-mail address serves to deliver the newsletter. We also use your e-mail address to send you a confirmation e-mail with which you can confirm your contact (double opt-in).

The following data is collected and stored when using the electronic contact form:

Data processing by Wistia

This website uses the Wistia service to display online videos.

With the Cookie, Wista can collect information on the user’s IP address, geographic location, browser info, device info, operating system and details on how the video was watched are then transmitted. If the video is viewed while the user is logged in as a registered user of Wistia, the content is specifically assigned to the user.

This service is provided by Wistia Inc, 17 Tudor Street, Cambridge, USA. Further information on the processing and storage of data by Wistia, Inc. can be found at https://wistia.com/privacy .

Processing Agreement

CEPRES and Wistia have entered into a Processing Agreement with Google as our Processor (Art. 28 GDPR)

Transfer of personal Data to the US and Standard Contractual Clauses

Personal data such as the IP-adress will be stored by Wistia in the US. We have concluded Standard Contractual Clauses with Wisitia to protect the data. CEPRES has assessed the risk that exists in connection with this data transfer. Wistia has taken precautionary measures, such as full compliance and certification with the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield. However, a risk remains that US secret services can access the data that is processed by Wistia.

14.     Google AdWords Conversion

Use of Google AdWords

CEPRES uses Google AdWords to draw attention to our offers on external websites with the help of advertising media (so-called Google AdWords). By using Google AdWords Conversion, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data from the advertising campaigns. This is done to enable us to display advertising to users that is of interest to them, to make our website more interesting for users and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

AdWord Cookies

The advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "Ad Servers". We use Ad Server Cookies for this purpose, which can be used to measure certain parameters such as the display of ads or clicks by users. If a user accesses our website via a Google advertisement, Google AdWords stores a cookie in this user's system. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days. They are not intended to personally identify the user. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

Evaluation of advertising measures

These cookies enable Google to recognize a user's Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and CEPRES may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to our page. CEPRES itself does not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. These evaluations enable us to identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.

Connection of your browser to Google

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. CEPRES has no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore informs you according to our state of knowledge: By integrating AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible for the provider to find out and store your IP address.

Options and removal

You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways:

  1. a) By setting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third party cookies, you will not receive advertisements from third parties;

  2. b) by disabling conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the "www.googleadservices.com " domain, https://www.google.de/settings/ads , which is deleted when you delete your cookies;

  3. c) by disabling the interest-based ads of the Providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulatory campaign via the link https://www.aboutads.info/choices , which setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies;

  4. d) by permanent deactivation in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin . Please note that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this offer.

Processing Agreement

CEPRES and Google have entered into a Processing Agreement with Google as our Processor (Art. 28 GDPR)

Transfer of personal Data to the US and Standard Contractual Clauses

Personal data such as the IP-adress will be stored by Google in the US. We have concluded Standard Contractual Clauses with Google to protect the data. CEPRES has assessed the risk that exist in connection with this data transfer. Google has taken precautionary measures, a risk remains that US secret services can access the data that is processed by Google.

Legal basis for processing

The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

Purpose of processing

We process the data and use the Google services as described above to analyze the effectiveness of our advertising measures and to improve them.

Storing period

The Ad Server Cookies stored in the users’ browser expire after 30 days. CEPRES retains the results that Google delivers for a longer period, but these statistics no longer include information on an identifiable user.
