In addition, we may record the content of telephone conversations when servicing customers.

c) Intention to transfer personal data to recipients in a third country or to an international organisation

A transfer of data to bodies in states outside the European Union or the European Economic Area (so-called third countries) takes place insofar as it is required by law, you have given us your consent or this is legitimised by the legitimate interest under data protection law and no higher interests of the data subject worthy of protection are opposed. For certain tasks, we use service providers who in turn use service providers who may have their registered office, parent company or data centres in a third country.

d) Recipients of the data

The data is processed within Chartered Investment and LIXX GmbH, Fürstenwall 172a/6th OG, 40217 Düsseldorf, Federal Republic of Germany.

If we are authorised to do so, the following bodies may also be recipients of personal data:

h) Obligation to provide data

Within the scope of the joint business relationship, the customer must provide those personal data that are necessary for the establishment and implementation of a business relationship and the fulfilment of the associated contractual obligations or which the provider is legally obliged to collect. Without this data, the provider will usually have to refuse to conclude the contract or execute the order or will no longer be able to perform an existing contract and may have to terminate it. In particular, the provider is obliged under money laundering regulations to identify the potential contractual partner before the business relationship is established, for example by means of an identity card, and to collect and record the name, place of birth, date of birth, nationality as well as residential address and identity card data. In order for the provider to be able to comply with this legal obligation, the customer must provide the provider with the necessary information and documents in accordance with Section 11 (6) of the German Money Laundering Act (Geldwäschegesetz) and notify the provider without delay of any changes arising in the course of the business relationship.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
