4.1 Delete cookies
- Newsletter data
lf you would like to order the newsletter offered on the investor portal, we require your email address and information enabling us to verify that you own the email address given and have agreed to receive the newsletter.
We store your IP address and the date of registration when you subscribe to our newsletter. This data is used solely for the purposes of verification in case a third party misuses the email address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the person authorised to use the account.
No other data will be collected. We use this data for the sole purpose of sending the requested information and shall not pass it on to third parties.
You may withdraw your consent at any time for the storage of your data, your email address and the usage thereof to send the newsletter, for example by using the unsubscribe link in the newsletter.
We would also like to point out that we send email newsletters via a third-party provider based in an EU member state, which processes personal data in accordance with the GDPR. The third-party provider has a corresponding contractual obligation.
- Recipients of personal data
Third parties commissioned by us to perform technical or organisational services for us and in accordance with our instructions, which we require for the fulfillment of the purposes stated in this data protection declaration or our other business activities, may obtain access to users' personal data. These are in particular Conda, with whom we have an order data processing contract, as well as HBL for the processing of the capital increase, whereby HBLis subject to Swiss banking secrecy. Our service providers are contractually obliged to process personal data exclusively on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions. We also oblige our service providers to comply with technical and organisational measures that ensure the protection of personal data.
- Risk of data transfers and exclusion of liability
Data transmitted via public networks like the Internet or email services may be publicly viewable. Information transferred via the Internet (such as online forms) and content received online may be transmitted via networks operated by third parties. Inyova cannot guarantee the confidentiality of information or documents that are transmitted by means of these public networks or networks operated by third parties.
lf you disclose personal data via a public network or networks operated by third party providers, you should be aware of the fact that your data may be lost. Also third parties might gain access and hence collect and use the data without your consent. While many of the individual data packages are transmitted in an encrypted form, the names of the sender and the recipient are not. Third parties can therefore draw conclusions on accounts and business relationships that exist or are being established. Even if the sender and the recipient are residents of the same country, the transmission of data over these networks frequently - and without monitoring - takes place via third countries, so also via countries that do not offer the same degree of protection as the country in which you are domiciled. We do not accept responsibility for the security of your data during transfer via the Internet and reject all liability for direct and indirect damages. The use of other means of communication is permitted if you consider this to be necessary or reasonable for security reasons.
You are obliged to protect your own systems with suitable security measures. In particular, the operating system and browser must be up to date, the manufacturer's security updates must be installed immediately and appropriate and up to-date virus protection must be used.
Inyova excludes liability for any damage resulting from the use of public and private data transmission networks, unless Inyova has violated the usual business care. Liability for the public and private data transmission networks of all kinds (e.g. interruption of operation, malfunction, viruses, harmful components, etc.), misuse by third parties and loss of programmes or other data in the information systems is also excluded.
- Right of access and erasure, suppression and rectification of personal data
Upon request, Inyova will provide you with information about all personal data stored about you on the investor platform and the purpose of the storage or data processing. Furthermore, you have the right to have this data corrected, blocked, deleted or destroyed. Consent given can be revoked at any time by notifying Inyova, provided you have not registered as an investor. The revocation of any consent only applies to future data processing. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected. In addition, you can request the transfer of all personal data stored on the platform to you or a third party in a common machine-readable format. For data that is relevant in the context of the capital increase, Inyova has a retention obligation of 10 years.
The exercise of your data protection rights usually requires that you can clearly prove your identity (e.g. by means of a copy of your identity card, if your identity is not otherwise clear or can be verified). You can contact us about your data protection rights and other questions on the subject of personal data as follows:
By e-mail: email@example.com
lf you incur costs when exercising your rights, we will inform you accordingly in advance.
