In some cases, we use external service providers for the processing of personal data within the scope of order processing according to Art. 28 GDPR (e.g. IT service providers).

Your data will only be disclosed, e.g. to supervisory authorities and law enforcement agencies, within the scope of the statutory provisions if it is necessary for the prevention and detection of fraud and other criminal acts or to ensure the security of our data processing systems. Legal bases for this are, depending on the individual case, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c (fulfillment of legal obligations) or lit. f GDPR (safeguarding legitimate interests).

If personal data is processed in an (non-EU) third country, a comparable level of data protection is ensured with the help of appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 44 et seq. of the GDPR.

Status: June 2023


The capital investments presented on this platform are associated with risks. This means that the investor must be capable and willing to bear financial losses, up to the total loss of the invested capital. Privatize does not provide investment recommendations, and no communication, either on this platform or otherwise, should be understood as a recommendation for a specific capital investment. Neither past performance nor forecasts provide reliable indications of future performance. There is no trading venue comparable to a stock exchange for the offered capital investments. The possibility of early liquidation is therefore not guaranteed and is often associated with financial losses. Early termination is only possible to the extent that the contractual provisions of the capital investment expressly allow it. An overview of the specific risks of the particular capital investment can be found in the respective sales prospectus and, if applicable, other provided documents. Before making your investment decision, please carefully read all of these documents and consult an independent and knowledgeable person or institution regarding the economic, legal, and tax implications of the respective investment. Privatize does not provide investment, legal, and/or tax advice.
