  1. How We Process Your Personal Data

A) Visiting the website

When you visit the website, your device’s browser automatically transmits information to our website’s server. This information is temporarily stored in aa so-called log file.  

The following data are collected and stored, without any action on your part, until they are automatically deleted:

  • IP address of the computer accessing the website
  • date and time of visit to our website
  • name and URL of the retrieved file
  • website from which access is made (referrer URL)
  • browser used and, in some cases, your computer’s operating system, as well as the name of your access provider

We process the aforementioned data for the following purposes:

  • ensuring a smooth connection is made with the website
  • ensuring the website is user friendly
  • evaluating system security and stability
  • additional administrative purposes

Article 6 para. 1 lit. f) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for the processing of data. Our legitimate interest arises from the purposes of data collection listed above. We generally do not use collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. However, we reserve the right to do so if required to investigate improper page access.

We may offer links to third-party services on our website. However, we are not responsible for the processing of your data by these services.

B) Contacting Us

If you have questions of any kind, we offer you the option to contact us by telephone or via email. If you make personal data available to us via these communication channels, we will only save and use this data on the basis of your consent as per Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the GDPR to process your enquiries, or on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR if the subject of your enquiry relates to (pre-)contractual information.

We will store the communication as long as required for the purposes of the communication. However, where the processing is based on your consent, you may revoke such consent to the processing of the provided data at any time by sending us an email. In this case, we will delete your data immediately. Where the processing is based on a contract or precontractual communication, we may have a legal retention obligation (for example, if you send us a pre-contractual message which then becomes the basis of a contractual relationship or if your message refers to existing contractual relationships).

C) Pitches

When you send us your pitch deck, we will process your name, contact information, and the information about you and your company contained in the pitch deck. The processing is made for the purpose of reviewing your pitch deck against our investment criteria. This review is necessary for us to decide about investing in your company. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6. para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR, as well as the legitimate interest of Amathaon and its investors in reviewing potential investment options (Art. 6. para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR). We will inform you about the result of the review as soon as possible and, if necessary, further contact you if your pitch deck meets our investment criteria.

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the afore-described purposes, and if all applicable statutory retention periods have expired.
