2.1. Analysis of the nature and scope of website use/Google Analytics:
Information concerning the time, duration and scope of the website use as well as information on the accessing device, such as operating system, region and browser type, is collected from each visitor to the website. The data is collected and used in pseudonymised form in order to generate anonymous information concerning the nature of the website use, in order to continually improve the website and to better adapt the contents to the needs of the users. Processing takes place on the basis of an overriding legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This processing is carried out by means of Google Analytics and Google Universal Analytics using cookies. For this purpose, the data is transmitted to Google evaluation servers in the USA by means of an anonymised IP address. You may object to the processing of this data by Google by installing the following plug-in for your browser, link ( or by deleting the corresponding cookies.

2.2. Use of cookies for investment information specific to origin:
Apart from the purpose mentioned, the website uses further cookies to provide you with investor information, depending on your specific country of origin (legal framework) and the type of investor you are. The selection is therefore stored in cookies on your computer. The basis is the consent you have given (Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation).

The data is transmitted to the FERI company mentioned and shown on the contact form. This processing is only necessary for making contact. The basis is the consent you have given (Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation). The data is usually erased in up to one year after the matter has been settled.

2.4. Registering for an event:
When you register for an event your last name, first name, email address, company, participation status, further remarks and the time of registration are recorded and used to organise the event and so that we can contact you in all matters concerning the event in question. The data is sent to the FERI company shown on the registration page and hosting the event. The data is processed as a necessary condition in order for you to take part in the event. The basis is the consent you have given (Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation).

2.5.  Newsletter:
In order for us to send you our newsletter and include your name in the mailing list, we process the contact data to be entered on the registration page and the information concerning subject and transmission time. The data is stored until you cancel your subscription to the newsletter.

You can revoke this consent at any time via the unsubscribe link in each newsletter. The newsletter is sent by a service provider (Newsletter2go) on behalf and under instruction of FERI.

2.6. Integration of social media services and YouTube Videos:

Once you have provided your consent you can use the LinkedIN, XING, Twitter and Google+ social networks as well as YouTube videos. When you click on the button concerned or when you launch a YouTube video, your IP address together with the times at which you start and stop using the website are transmitted to the relevant provider (provider: LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S.A.; XING AG, Dammtorstrasse 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany; Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street., Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, U.S.A.; Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S.A.); this enables you to use the services of the provider concerned, e.g. by sharing web pages or by registering ‘likes’. The provider may be able to identify you (if, for example, you are simultaneously signed in to your account with them) and would thus log and save the fact that you, as a specific individual, have visited their website. By clicking on the button concerned you are consenting to the transfer of your data to the relevant provider. Consent is valid for one visit at a time.
