Make absolutely sure that you have fully understood the risks involved in subscribing to securities and, if necessary, seek advice from an independent and knowledgeable person or institution before subscribing. We also expressly draw your attention to the fact that forecasts are not a reliable indicator of future performance and that yield information is merely a calculated forecast.

3. Scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data
a) when visiting token platform
When visiting Token Platform, our servers temporarily store each access in a log file. We, or our hosting provider, collects on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO, we collect data about each access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files).
The following data is collected without your intervention and stored by us until automated deletion after twelve months at the latest:
- the IP address of the requesting computer,
- the date and time of the access,
- the name and URL of the file accessed,
- the website from which the access was made,
- the operating system of your computer and the browser you are using,
- the country from which you accessed the site and the language settings of your browser, and
- the name of your Internet access provider.
This data is collected and processed for the purpose of enabling the use of our website (connection establishment), ensuring system security and stability, and enabling the optimization of our Internet offering, as well as for internal statistical purposes. In particular, the IP address is used to record the country of residence of the website visitor and to preset the language of the website accordingly. Furthermore, the IP address is evaluated in the event of attacks on the network infrastructure of Token Platform and for statistical purposes.
In addition, when you visit our website, we use so-called pixels and cookies to display personalized advertising and to use web analytics services.
b) when using our comment function
You have the possibility to comment on posts. When you post comments on the website as a visitor, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, furthermore the visitor’s IP address and the user agent string (this identifies the browser) to support spam detection.
The above data are necessary for data processing. We process this data exclusively in order to personalize the information and offers sent to you and to better align them with your interests.
By registering for the comment function, you give us your consent to process the data provided for the regular dispatch of promotions (online) to the address you have provided and for the statistical evaluation of usage behavior. This consent constitutes our legal basis for the processing of your data within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. We are entitled to commission third parties with the technical processing of advertising measures and are entitled to pass on your data for this purpose.
You can revoke your consent to the processing of your data at any time (at firstname.lastname@example.org). After revocation, your personal data will be deleted.
c) when contacting
When contacting us (e.g. by contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), the user’s details are processed for the purpose of handling the contact request and its processing. The user’s details may be stored in a customer relationship management system (“CRM system”) or comparable request organization in order to process possible follow-up questions more efficiently.
d) for services provided by third parties
On our website there is the possibility to use services of third parties. Depending on the service, various data is collected in this context. This is, for example, the following data:
- Salutation and/or company,
- First and last name,
- Address (street, house number, postal code, city, country),
- Other contact information (e-mail address, phone number),
The data you enter is usually collected directly by the relevant service provider or, in the case of certain offers, forwarded to them by us. For such further processing of the data, the data protection provisions of the respective service provider apply in these cases. The legal basis for the processing of the aforementioned data is the fulfillment of a contract within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.
4) Use of your data for communication and advertising purposes
a) In general
Grether WebSites GmbH may use personal data of Token Platform users to promote its services (online and/or print advertising, etc.). Grether WebSites GmbH is allowed to pass on personal data to third parties for this purpose. The user expressly agrees to this use of his data.
Grether WebSites GmbH may send users of the website information and advertising electronically (by e-mail, by push message, by SMS or by other suitable means). This electronic communication with the user takes place via the public communication networks. Data transmitted in this way are in principle visible to third parties, may be lost during transmission or may be intercepted by unauthorized third parties. It cannot therefore be ruled out that third parties may gain access to communication with the user despite all the security measures taken. Since e-mail is an open form of communication, it is generally not suitable for the transmission of personal information.
Contact by e-mail will only be made if consent has been given, for example, if Grether WebSites GmbH has received the e-mail address from the sender when being contacted by the latter, such as by sending the form.
We delete the requests if they are no longer necessary. We review the necessity every two years; furthermore, the legal archiving obligations apply.
b) Creation of pseudonomized usage profiles
In order to provide you with personalized services and information on our website (on-site targeting), we use and analyze the data we collect about you when you visit the website. In the corresponding processing, so-called cookies may also be used if necessary. The analysis of your user behavior may lead to the creation of a so-called usage profile. A combination of the usage data is only with pseudonymous, but never with non-pseudonymous personal data.
To enable personalized marketing in social networks, we integrate so-called remarketing pixels from Facebook and Twitter on the website. If you have an account with a social network included via this and are logged in there at the time of the page visit, this pixel links the page visit with your account. Log out of your respective account before visiting the site to prevent a link. You can make further settings for advertising in the respective social networks in your user profile. We base the creation of pseudonymized user profiles for advertising and analysis purposes on a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest consists of direct marketing and analysis of the use of our website.
c) Posting comments
When you write a comment on Token Platform, it can be a consent to store your name, email address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so that when you write another comment, you do not have to enter all this data again. These cookies are stored for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to Token Platform, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you sign up, we will set up some cookies to store your login information and viewing options. Login cookies expire after two days and display options cookies expire after one year. If you select “Stay logged in” when you sign up, your login will be maintained for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the sign-in cookies are deleted.
When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie is stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and only refers to the post ID of the article you just edited. The cookie expires after one day.
We use re-targeting technologies on the website. This involves analyzing your user behavior on our website in order to subsequently offer you advertising tailored to your individual needs on partner websites as well. Your user behavior is recorded pseudonymously. Most re-targeting technologies work with cookies.
This website uses Google AdWords Remarketing and Doubleclick by Google, services of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”), to serve ads based on the use of previously visited websites. Google uses the so-called DoubleClick cookie for this purpose, which enables your browser to be recognized when visiting other websites. The information generated by the cookie about your visit to these websites (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States (for more information about transfers of personal data to the United States, please see below).
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website in relation to the advertisements to be displayed, compiling reports on website activity and advertisements for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. However, Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
To manage the services for usage-based advertising, we also use the Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager tool itself is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal data. Rather, the tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. If you have disabled at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. You can prevent re-targeting at any time by rejecting or switching off the relevant cookies in the menu bar of your web browser.
e) Use of Google Adsense
Token Platform uses Google AdSense, a service for embedding advertisements of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google AdSense uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. Google AdSense also uses so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). Through these web beacons, information such as visitor traffic on these pages can be evaluated.
The information generated by cookies and web beacons about the use of this website (including your IP address) and delivery of advertising formats will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. This information may be passed on by Google to contractual partners of Google. However, Google will not merge your IP address with other data stored by you.
Token Platform uses the services of sendinblue for sending newsletters. The provider is Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenickerstrasse 126, 10179 Berlin. Sendinblue is a service with which, among other things, the dispatch of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. If you enter data for the purpose of receiving newsletters (e.g. e-mail address), this data is stored on the servers of sendinblue in the in Germany. If you do not want any analysis by sendinblue, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in each newsletter message.
Data analysis by sendinblue
For the purpose of analysis, the emails sent with sendinblue contain a so-called “tracking pixel”, which connects to sendinblue’s servers when the email is opened. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened. Furthermore, with the help of sendinblue, we can determine whether and which links in the newsletter message are clicked. All links in the e-mail are so-called tracking links, with which your clicks can be counted. The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of sendinblue after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected by this.
5) Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that content or services from third-party providers are integrated within Token Platform. For example, city maps or fonts from other websites or via I-frame content from third-party providers such as coin or token offers. The integration of third-party content always requires that the third-party providers perceive the IP address of the users, since without the IP address they could not send the content to the users’ browser. The IP address is thus required for the display of this content. Furthermore, the providers of the third-party content can set their own cookies and process the users’ data for their own purposes. In doing so, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We will use this content in a data-saving and data-avoiding manner as far as possible and select reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.
The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, along with links to their privacy statements, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in part already mentioned here, opt-out options:
6) Disclosure of data to third parties
We pass on data such as emails to third parties insofar as this is necessary in the context of the use of the website for the provision of the services requested by you as well as the analysis of your user behavior. Insofar as this is necessary for the purposes mentioned in sentence 1, the transfer may also take place abroad. Insofar as the website contains links to third-party websites, we no longer have any influence on the collection, processing, storage or use of personal data by the third party after clicking on these links and accept no responsibility for this.
7) Transfer of personal data abroad
8) Data security
We use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data stored with us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
We also take internal data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us have been obligated by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of data protection law.
Cookies help in many aspects to make your visit to our website easier, more pleasant and more meaningful. Cookies are information files that your web browser automatically stores on your computer’s hard drive when you visit Token Platform. Cookies do not damage your computer’s hard drive, nor do they transmit users’ personal information to us.
On Token Platform we use so-called tracking tools. With these tracking tools, your surfing behavior on our website is observed. This observation is done for the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our website. In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and small text files stored on your computer (“cookies”) are used.
a) Google Analytics
Token Platform uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. We have also extended Google Analytics on this website with the code “anonymizeIP”. This guarantees the masking of your IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gao- ptout?hl=en. As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again. [Note Instructions on how to integrate the opt-out cookie can be found at: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/?hl=de#disable.
We continue to use Google Analytics to analyze data from Double-Click-Cookies and also Ad-Words and Ad-Sense for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this, you can deactivate it via the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/on- web/?hl=en).
We use Universal Analytics. It allows us to analyze the activities on our pages across devices (e.g., accesses via laptop and later via a tablet). This is made possible by the pseudonymous assignment of a user ID to a user. Such an assignment occurs, for example, when you register for a customer account or log in to your customer account. However, no personal data is forwarded to Google. Even if additional functions are added to Google Analytics with Universal Analytics, this does not mean that a restriction of data protection measures such as IP masking or the browser add-on is associated with this.
b) Google Ads Conversion-Tracking
We use the online advertising program “Google Ads” or Google AdWords and within the framework of Google Ads the conversion tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain web pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no possibility that cookies can be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers.
The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. This tells customers the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to identify users personally.
11) Social Media Plug-Ins
The social plugins described below are used on Token Platform. The plugins are deactivated by default on our website and therefore do not send any data. You can activate the plugins by clicking on the corresponding social media button.
You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.
- Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave – Palo Alto – CA 94304 – USA)
- Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St. – Suite 600 – San Francisco – CA 94107 – USA)
- XING AG (Gänsemarkt 43 – 20354 Hamburg – Deutschland)
- LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Irland
- Foursquare, 50 W 23rd St, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10010.
- Instagram, San Francisco
- Pinterest Inc., 635 High Street, Palo Alto, CA, 94301, USA
- YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066 USA
- Tumbir, 770 Broadway, New York, NY 10003, USA
Within our online offer, functions and contents of these services may be integrated. This includes content such as images, videos or texts and buttons with which users can make known their liking of the content, the authors of the content or subscribe to our posts. If the users are members of the platforms, these can assign the call of the above-mentioned content and functions to the profiles of the users there.
If these plugins are activated, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the respective social network as soon as you call up one of our websites. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from the social network to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. The plugins can be deactivated again with one click. For more information, please refer to the respective privacy statements of Facebook, Twitter and Google.
a) Plugins from Facebook
Social plugins from Facebook are used on Token Platform to make our website more personal. For this purpose, we use the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button. This is an offer from the US company Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of the Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.
b) Plugins from LinkedIn
Token Platform uses plugins of the social network LinkedIn or LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. You can recognize the LinkedIn plugins by the corresponding logo or the “Recommend” button. Please note that the plugin establishes a connection between your respective internet browser and the LinkedIn server when you visit our website. LinkedIn is thus informed that our website has been visited with your IP address. If you click on the LinkedIn “Recommend” button and are logged into your LinkedIn account at the same time, you have the option of linking content from our website to your LinkedIn profile page. In doing so, you enable LinkedIn to associate your visit to our website with you or your user account. You must know that we do not gain any knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and its use by LinkedIn. Further details on the collection of data and your legal options as well as setting options can be found at LinkedIn. These are made available to you at http://www.linkedin.com/sta- tic?key=privacy_policy&trk=hb_ft_priv.
c) Plugins from YouTube
Token Platform uses plugins from YouTube, belonging to Google Inc., located in San Bruno/California, USA. As soon as you visit pages of our website equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. In doing so, the YouTube server is informed which specific page of our website you have visited. If, on top of this, you are logged in to your YouTube account, you would enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can avoid this possibility of association if you log out of your account beforehand. For more information on the collection and use of your data by YouTube, please refer to the privacy notices there at www.youtube.com.
12) Note on data transfers to the USA
For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out to users that in the U.S. there are surveillance measures by U.S. authorities that generally allow the storage of all personal data of all individuals whose data has been transferred to the U.S. from other countries. This is done without any differentiation, limitation or exception based on the objective pursued and without any objective criterion that would make it possible to limit the access of the U.S. authorities to the data and their subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes that are capable of justifying the intrusion associated both with the access to this data and with its use. Furthermore, we would like to point out that in the U.S. there are no legal remedies available to data subjects from Switzerland that would allow them to obtain access to the data concerning them and to obtain its correction or deletion, or that there is no effective judicial legal protection against general access rights of U.S. authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of the data subject to this legal and factual situation so that he or she can make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of his or her data.
We would like to point out to users residing in a member state of the EU that the USA does not have a sufficient level of data protection from the perspective of the European Union.
13) Right of access, rectification, erasure and restriction of processing; right to data portability.
You have the right to receive information about the personal data stored by us about you free of charge upon request. In addition, you have the right to correct inaccurate data and the right to have your personal data deleted, insofar as this does not conflict with a legal obligation to retain the data or an authorization that allows us to process the data. In accordance with Articles 18 and 21 DSGVO, you also have the right to request restriction of data processing and to object to data processing.
You also have the right to demand that we return the data you have provided to us. Upon request, we will also pass on the data to a third party of your choice. You have the right to receive the data in a common file format.
You can reach us for the aforementioned purposes via the e-mail address email@example.com. For the processing of your requests, we may, at our discretion, require proof of identity.
You can also tell us what you want to happen to your information after you die by giving us instructions.
14) Data retention
We store personal data only for as long as it is necessary to use the above tracking, advertising and analysis services within the scope of our legitimate interest, to perform services to the above extent that you have requested or to which you have given your consent, and to comply with our legal obligations.
15) Right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority
You have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority at any time.
16) Place of jurisdiction and applicable law
