II. GENERAL INFORMATION DATA PROCESSING

1. Scope of personal data processing

We will generally only process the personal data of our users where this is required to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. As a rule, the personal data of our users are only processed based on their prior consent. An exception applies in such cases where for factual reasons, consent cannot be obtained in advance and the law allows the processing of data.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Article 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis in cases where we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of its personal data.

Where the processing of data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, this is based on Article 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR. The same applies for data processing operations required for the imple­mentation of measures in advance of a contract.

Article 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis in cases where our company requires the processing of personal data for compliance with its legal obligations.

Article 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. d GDPR applies where the processing of personal data is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.

If the data processing is required to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, and if such legitimate interest overrides the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, then Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR is the applicable legal basis for such processing.

3. Data storage period and data erasure

The personal data of the data subject are erased as soon as the purpose for which the data is stored no longer applies. Data may be stored beyond this period if such longer storage is regulated by European or national legislation in EU regulations, laws or other provisions applicable to the data controller. Data are also blocked or erased once the storage period required by the above-mentioned provisions expires, unless further storage of the data is required for the purpose of the conclusion or performance of a contract.

4. Data collection in Switzerland

In Switzerland, personal data may be collected and processed by each company of the Assenagon Group (Assenagon Asset Management S.A. including its German branch, Assenagon GmbH and Assenagon Schweiz GmbH). Each company will at all times observe the regulations of this privacy policy and national data protection laws. The data may be disseminated within the Assenagon Group as necessary to fulfil the purpose and for internal administrative purposes.

5. Processing of personal data by joint controllers

Assenagon GmbH and Assenagon Asset Management S.A. have concluded a contract as joint controllers within the meaning of the Article  26 GDPR, governing the mutual responsibilities for any processing operations carried out as joint controllers. This is particularly relevant for processing in connection with the dispatch of information on products and other topics. The joint controllers have undertaken to guarantee the security of data processing, to inform each other of serious disruptions in the processing of data and to provide each other with the necessary support in answering requests from data subjects seeking to enforce their rights set out in Article  12 to 22 GDPR and Article  34 GDPR. The contract further stipu­lates that if the consent of a data subject is required for the processing of personal data, this consent is obtained from the joint controller who collects or has collected the data.

 

III. RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT

If your personal data are processed, you are considered a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the data controller:

1. Right of access

You have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed. Where this is the case, you can demand access to the personal data and the following information from the controller:

1. The purposes for which the personal data are processed;

2. the categories of personal data concerned;

3. the recipients or categories of recipients to whom personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed;

4. the envisaged period for which personal data concerning you will be stored, or, if specific information cannot be provided on that matter, the criteria used to determine the storage period;

5. the existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing of personal data concerning you or the right to object to such processing;

6. the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;

7. where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their source;

8. the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22 para. 1 and 4 GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to demand information on whether personal data concerning you are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you can request to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR relating to the transfer.

2. Right to rectification

You have the right, vis-à-vis the controller, to have your processed personal data rectified and/or completed insofar as they are inaccurate or incomplete. The controller shall carry out such rectification without undue delay.

3. Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data, where the following conditions apply:

  • If you contest the accuracy of personal data concerning you for a period, enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  • if the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead;
  • if the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • if you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 1 GDPR, pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override your legitimate grounds.

Where processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

If processing was restricted pursuant to the above conditions, you shall be informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.

4. Right to erasure

a) Erasure obligation

You have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller shall have the obligation to erase such data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

1. The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

2. You withdraw your consent on which the processing is based according to Article 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a, or Article 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR, and there is no other legal ground for the processing.

3. You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 2 GDPR.

4. The personal data concerning you have been unlawfully processed.

5. The personal data concerning you have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.

6. The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8 para. 1 GDPR.

b) Information to third parties

Where the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17 para. 1 GDPR to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers, which are processing the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.

c) Exceptions

There should be no right to erasure, if the processing is required

1. for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;

2. for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject; or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

3. for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with Article 9 para. 2 lit. h and i as well as Article 9 para. 3 GDPR;

4. for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 para. 1 GDPR, in so far as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or

5. for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

5. Right to be informed

If you have exercised your right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing towards the controller, the controller shall be obligated to notify all recipients to whom personal data concerning you have been disclosed, of the rectification or erasure of the data or the restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or would involve disproportionate effort.

You are entitled to require the controller to inform you about these recipients.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format. You are also entitled to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where

1. the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR or Article 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR and

2. the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising your right to data portability, you have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This must not give rise to any infringement of the rights and freedoms of other persons.

The right to data portability shall not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

7. Right to object

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Where personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing purposes; this includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

8. Right to withdraw consent under data privacy law

You may withdraw your consent under data privacy law at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

9. Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or affects you significantly in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision

1. is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and the data controller;

2. is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or

3. is based on your explicit consent.

However, these decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Article 9 para. 2 lit a. or g GDPR applies and suitable measures are in place to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.

 

IV. PROVISION OF THE WEBSSITE AND CREATION OF LOG FILES

1. Description and scope of the data processing

Every time our Internet website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the accessing computer system.

The following data are collected:

  • Information on the browser type/browser version
  • The operating system of the user
  • The IP address of the user
  • The date and time of the access

The data are also stored in the log files of our system. These data are not stored together with the other personal data of the user.

IX. USE OF PLUGINS

USE OF MATOMO

1. Scope of personal data processing

We use the open source software tool Matomo on our website to analyse our users' surfing behaviour. The software places a cookie on the users' computer (for more information on cookies, see "VI. Use of cookies"). When individual webpages are accessed on our website, the following data are stored:

(1) Two bytes of the IP address of the user’s accessing system

(2) The accessed website

(3) The website, from which the user has accessed our website (referrer)

(4) The sub-pages accessed from the accessed website

(5) The time spent on the website

(6) The frequency with which the website is accessed

The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website, and the personal data of the user are stored only there. For the purpose of analysis, our service providers commissioned with the maintenance and development of the website are also able to access the software and the data stored in it. The results of the analyses do not contain any personal data and are passed on within the group of undertakings (Assenagon Asset Management S.A. including its German branch, Assenagon GmbH und Assenagon Schweiz GmbH).

The software is configured to not store full IP addresses, but instead mask 2 bytes of the IP address ("Automatically Anonymise Visitor IPs", e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). This prevents us from attributing the truncated IP address to the accessing computer.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The legal basis for the processing of the personal data is Article 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR..

3. Purpose of the data processing

The processing of the personal user data enables us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. Evaluating the resulting data enables us to compile information on the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continu­ously improve our website and to make it more user friendly. The interests of the users with regard to the protection of their personal data are sufficiently taken into account through the anonymisation of the IP address.

4. Storage period

The data are erased once they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were stored.

In our case, this is five years.

5. Objection and deletion

Cookies are stored on the computer of the user and transferred to our website. You as the user therefore have full control over the use of cookies. Regardless of the cookie settings that users can choose from on our website, you can deactivate or limit the transfer of cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser.
