2. Your data collected by us as well as the type, purpose and legal basis of processing and use
2.1 Data to be provided by you during registration
When registering, you must first register by providing your name and e-mail address. When you register, you assign a password that you can change at any time in the account management. Your password and your e-mail address cannot be seen by other people and we will not pass them on to third parties. We use your e-mail address to get in contact with you.
You can manage and change your personal data, which is necessary for processing your investments, in the “Settings” section.

The legal basis for the collection, storage, and processing of your personal data from the employment relationship is based on your customer relationship with us in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.
2.3 Logfiles (log file)
Every time you log on to the user portal, your browser automatically sends certain information to the server of the Internet site, which then saves it in a so-called log file. This is for example information about
- the type and version of the browser you use,
- the operating system you use,
- the website from which you came to the current page,
- the hostname (IP address) of your computer and
- the time at which the call was made.
Subject to any legal retention obligations, we delete or anonymise your IP address after you leave the portal.
In addition, we use the information transmitted to our servers by your browser in anonymised form – i.e. without the possibility of drawing conclusions about you – to analyse and improve our services. In this way, we can, for example, discover or determine possible errors. Anonymised data is no longer personal data.
The legal basis for the collection and processing of information stored in a log file is our contractual relationship Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO and your consent Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.
Cookies are very small text files used by Internet sites that your browser stores on your computer. So-called “session cookies” are temporarily stored in the working memory and are automatically deleted when you close the browser. So-called “permanent cookies” are stored on the hard disk for a defined longer period of time; they are automatically deleted after the defined period of time has elapsed.
You can set your browser so that it generally does not accept cookies, or only accepts them after you have expressly confirmed them. You can easily find out how this works by using the help function of your browser. If your browser does not accept cookies, however, the range of functions available to user portals may be limited or not available at all.
3. Transmission or transfer of your data to third parties
As a matter of principle, we do not transfer your data to third parties without your consent.
However, a technical transfer can be made if and to the extent that this is necessary for the operation of the user portal or for other reasons for the establishment, implementation, or processing of your contractual relationship with us. This can be the case if the website is hosted by an external service provider, i.e. an external service provider operates the servers for G4B Hannover Invest Management GmbH. Furthermore, we forward your data to service providers for the execution of electronic payment and for the administration of investment projects. The processing is based on art. 6 paragraph 1 letter b) DSGVO for the transfer.
As a company, we are also subject to various legal obligations, i.e. legal requirements as well as commercial and tax law regulations and, in particular, financial regulations. The purposes of processing include identity and age verification, fraud and money laundering prevention, and the fulfillment of tax obligations. This also includes the transfer of data to the companies in which you have invested and which we have commissioned to check your identity – if necessary.
This processing is carried out on the basis of legal requirements (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO) or in the public interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e) DSGVO)
