3. Categories of data collected
3.1 Provision of the website


Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The type and amount of data transmitted and processed depend on the Internet browser you are using and its configuration and typically includes:

  • the accessed website,

  • source/reference from where you got to the page,

  • the browser used,

  • the operating system used,

  • the IP address used and

  • the language you prefer.


Of this data, the following are stored in the log files of our web server:

  • the accessed website,

  • source/reference from where you got to the page,

  • the browser used,

  • the operating system used,

  • the IP address used


as well as

  • in the case of authenticated access, the login name used,

  • date and time of the access,

  • success or error status of the retrieval and

  • the amount of response data transmitted.

This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the provision of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session, after which it is deleted. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

3.2 Provision of our services and products


The subject matter of the commissioned processing of Personal Data under this policy comprises the following data categories:

  • Personal master data (key personal data)

  • Contact data

  • Customer history with Tangany (incl. transaction history)

  • Information about the assets stored with Tangany

  • Disclosed information (from third parties, e.g. credit reference agencies or from public directories)

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, i.e. you provide us with the data on the basis of the contractual relationship between you and us. Insofar as we do not use your contact details for advertising purposes, we save the data collected for processing the contract.

4. Data transfer


Within Tangany, your data will be passed on to those departments that need them to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations. Processors used by Tangany can also receive data for the same purposes. These are companies to which Tangany outsources services.

5. Data retention


If necessary, Tangany will process and store your personal data for the duration of the business relationship, which includes, for example, the initiation and execution of a contract.

Tangany processes and stores personal data only as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual and legal obligations. In other words, if the data is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, it is regularly deleted, unless further processing is necessary for the following purposes, for example: a) Fulfilment of the retention periods under commercial and tax law, as defined by the following laws: Commercial Code (HGB), Fiscal Code (AO), Banking Act (KWG), Money Laundering Act (GWG) and Securities Trading Act (WpHG). The periods of retention or documentation stipulated there are between two to ten years. b) Preservation of evidence within the scope of the statute of limitations. According to Paragraphs§§ 195 et sqq.ff. of the German Civil Code (BGB), these limitation periods can be up to 30 years. The legal basis for this arises from Art. 17 (3) (e) GDPR and Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

6. Data transfer to third countries


A transfer of personal data to third countries (countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA)) only takes place if the EU Commission has confirmed an adequate level of data protection in the third country or if other appropriate data protection guarantees (e.g. binding internal company data protection regulations) are in place.

As a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed Standard Contractual Clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) (c) GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. Whether the conclusion of standard contractual clauses is sufficient or whether additional measures are necessary in the sense of the "Schrems II" decision of the European Court of Justice, we evaluate in the context of an ongoing review and ensure an adequate level of data protection through further measures if necessary. 

7. Automated decision making and profiling

We do not use automated decision-making or profiling.

8. Right to Object


If the data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. e or lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons that arise from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedom or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (right to object according to Art. 21 (1) GDPR)

If your personal data is are processed in order to operate direct mail, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct mail. If you object, your personal data will be
subsequently no longer used for the purpose of direct mail (objection according to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates the provisions of the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of your habitual residence or the place of the alleged violation.

9. Data subject’s rights


You have the following rights according to the GDPR:

  • Right of access about to your personal data stored by us in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR; In particular, you can obtain information about the purposes of processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the origin of your data, if it was not col-lected directly from you,

  • Right to correct incorrect data or to complete correct data in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR,

  • Right to deletion of your data stored by us in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR as long as no statutory or contractual retention periods or other statutory obligations or rights for further storage are to be observed,

  • Right to restriction of the processing of your data in accordance with Article 18 GDPR, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you and the processing by us is unlaw-ful, but you refuse allowance for deletion; the person responsible no longer needs the data, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have objected to processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR,

  • Right to data portability in accordance with Article 20 GDPR, the right to receive select-ed data stored by us about you in a common, machine-readable format, or to re-quest transmission to another person responsible,

  • Right to complain to a supervisory authority. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or work or our company headquarters.

11.10 Newsletter


If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only on a voluntary basis. For the handling of the newsletter we use newsletter service providers, which are described below.

11.11 Mailchimp


This website uses the services of MailChimp to send out its newsletters. The provider is the Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

Among other things, MailChimp is a service that can be deployed to organize and analyze the sending of newsletters. Whenever you enter data for the purpose of subscribing to a newsletter (e.g. your e-mail address), the information is stored on MailChimp servers in the United States.

With the assistance of the MailChimp tool, we can analyze the performance of our newsletter campaigns. If you open an e-mail that has been sent through the MailChimp tool, a file that has been integrated into the email (a so-called web-beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the United States. As a result, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links the recipient possibly clicked on. Technical information is also recorded at that time (e.g. the time of access, the IP address, type of browser and operating system). This information cannot be allocated to the respective newsletter recipient.
Their sole purpose is the performance of statistical analyses of newsletter campaigns. The results of such analyses can be used to tailor future newsletters to the interests of their recipients more effectively.

If you do not want to permit an analysis by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for you to do this in every newsletter message.

The data is processed based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. (a) GDPR). You may revoke any consent you have given at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data processing transactions that have taken place prior to your revocation.
The data deposited with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter or the newsletter service provider and deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored for other purposes with us remain unaffected.

Data transmission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. Details can be found here:
https://mailchimp.com/eu-us-data-transfer-statement/ and
https://mailchimp.com/legal/data-processing-addendum/#Annex_C_-_Standard_Contractual_Clauses.


After you unsubscribe from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist is used only for this purpose and not merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. (f) GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is indefinite. You may object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
For more details, please consult the Data Privacy Policies of MailChimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.
