1.1 Use of cookies

During an online session, cookies are stored on your computer. These are small files that control the display and operation of our website. Cookies will not damage your computer and do not contain viruses.

When you visit our website and wish to make use of the functions we offer, we use one group of cookies that are required for technical reasons. These cookies are called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit.

Furthermore we use a consent management platform (i.e. an approval management service), with which we document and implement your decisions regarding the data processing on our website. 

The Consent Management Platform used at GJW Private Clients Website was developed and is managed by Usercentrics GmbH, Sendlinger Straße 7, 80331 Munich, Germany. In order to do that, small files (analog cookies) are stored locally in the cache of your browser. This happens regardless of whether you agree or reject certain cookies. They continue to exist and can be read out even after the browser window has been closed or the program has been closed - provided that you don't delete the cache.

If you agreed to this, we also employ other cookies to carry out statistical evaluation of the range of our websites. We perform anonymised statistical evaluation of these websites. We do not establish any personal link to you. 

We commission a service provider (Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Ireland)  to carry out the statistical evaluation, and these are performed exclusively for us and on our behalf. For this reason, when you visit our websites, cookies from this service provider are also stored on your device. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit and remain on your terminal device until you delete them.

The data for carrying out statistical evaluations of our website is stored and processed in Europe (Ireland, France), but for supporting reasons there might be access to the data by Adobe employees outside EU. (Switzerland, Canada, United Kingdom, India or USA). While Switzerland and Canada have

a level of data protection appropriate to that of the EU, the level of data protection in the United Kingdom, India and USA, does not correspond to the EU data protection level. In these countries, there is a risk that your data may be processed by authorities, possibly without the possibility of legal recourse.

1.3 Server log files

The information that your browser automatically sends us is collected automatically and saved in server log files. They contain:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (the URL that the user comes from)
  • Host name (network name) of the accessing computer
  • Time of server request

This data cannot be traced to individual people. We do not merge this data with other data sources. We reserve the right to review the information subsequently, and report it to authorities (such as the police or public prosecutor’s office), if there are concrete indications that our internet presence is being used illegally (for example, a hacking attack on our network).

2. Use of social networks

Social media functions and social plug-ins are embedded in our website in the form of small icons. We currently embed the following social networks on our websites as icons: Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Facebook and XING.

By default, GJW Private Clients exclusively embeds deactivated icons, which do not contact the servers of these external networks when GJW Private Clients website is accessed. The buttons become active and create a connection only if you deliberately click an icon, thus indicating your consent to communicating with such providers. By entering your personal login data to these networks, you create a connection to your identity.

You thus leave GJW Private Clients internet presence and our sphere of influence. GJW Private Clients does not record which external network you activate. The next time you visit GJW Private Clients website, the social media plug-ins return to their inactive modus, ensuring that no data is automatically communicated to social media upon such return visit.

When you interact with the social plug-ins – for example, by entering a comment – a corresponding notification is sent to the social network and saved in accordance with the respective network’s policy. Please consult the respect social network’s data protection statement with regard to the scope and purpose of the data collected, its use and processing, as well as your respective rights and options in protecting your privacy.
