Privacy Policy

The companies of Deutsche Börse Group appreciate the importance of personal data. As with all our business processes, the protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern to which we pay special attention. Personal data are collected, processed and used in accordance with those national data protection regulations of the country in which the responsible company is located. Please note that the websites of Deutsche Börse AG and Deutsche Börse Group may include, however, links to other websites, which are not covered by this privacy policy.

Collection and processing of personal data

In most cases, when visiting our websites, our web server logs the address of your internet service provider (IP or URL), the name of the website, from where you are connecting to us, the date and time of your visit. Additional personal data (your name, address, phone number or e-mail address) is only required if you contact us directly or register for a newsletter or a closed user group. The data which are collected via the different input masks can be found through the mandatory input fields. All other data can be given voluntarily.

Use and disclosure of personal data and specification of purpose

We will ensure your privacy and we will not disclose or sell your personal data to third parties, outside Deutsche Börse Group. This privacy policy refers to all your personal data regardless of whether they are collected automatically or with your prior consent. We only use your data for internal statistical purposes, to answer an inquiry or to provide a requested service. We will not disclose your personal data to governmental authorities except in cases where it is required by the applicable laws, e.g. German Stock Exchange Act (Börsengesetz) or German Securities Trading Act (Wertpapierhandelsgesetz).

Use, disclosure of personal data and processing of additional data

The advertisement which you will find on the web sites on Deutsche Börse Group’s entities may deposit little files on your computer – so called cookies – to provide individually adjusted advertisement for products and services. These cookies collect anonymous data about the way the websites are used, which do not make your person identifiable. If you do not wish your anonymous information related to your visit on our web site to be generated, you may disable the cookie option on your browser. Please refer to the specifications of your browser producer.

Data security

Deutsche Börse AG uses appropriate technical and organizational security measures in order to protect the data we have under our control against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction as well as access by unauthorized persons. Our security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available.

Use of a web analytics tool

This website uses etracker technology (www.etracker.com) to collect visitor behavior data. This data is collected anonymously to be used for marketing and optimization purposes. All visitor data is saved using an anonymous user ID and can be aggregated to a usage profile. Cookies may be used to collect and save this data, but the data remains strictly anonymous. The data will not be used to identify a visitor personally and are not aggregated with any personal data. Your full IP address will not be stored. We only store your IP address in a shortened (anonymized) form and use it for identification of the session, so that the collected data will be anonymous and allocation to the identity of an individual user is not possible. The shortened IP address will then be deleted without delay as soon as it is no longer required. The collection and storage of data may be refused at any time with respect to subsequent services.

Right to information, public statement of data processing and other rights

Upon written request we, Deutsche Börse Group, will inform you by letter if and what personal data we store as defined by the effective law. If such data is incorrect despite our effort to keep data correct and up to date, we will correct that information at your request. In our public statement of data processing we summarize the information according to legal requirements.
