1. An overview of data protection: General information 

The following information will provide you with an easy-to-navigate overview of what will happen with your personal data when you visit this website as well as our platform. The term „personal data“ comprises all data that can be used to personally identify you. For detailed information about the subject matter of data protection, please consult our Data Protection Declaration, which we have included beneath this copy.

Data recording on this website 

Who is the responsible party for recording data on this website (i.e. the „controller“)? 

The data on this website is processed by the operator of the website, whose contact information is available under the section „Information Required by Law“. 

How do we record your data? 

We collect your data as a result of your sharing of your data with us. This may, for instance, be information you enter into our contact form as well as by making use of our platform.

Our IT systems automatically record other data when you visit our website. This data comprises primarily technical information (e.g. web browser, operating system, or time the site was accessed). This information is recorded automatically when you access this website. 

Account creation and sign-in

To use our service, you first need to set up a user account for the Uncap-Platform. This requires you to provide your business name and an email address. We point out the current terms of use and data protection and ask for active consent. We also ask you to provide additional information about your company (e.g. company name, industry, registered office – these categories are also summarised below as “company data”). We also collect your first and last name, job title, date of birth, gender, nationality, telephone number, and other information during the application process. During our registration and application process, we collect personal data directly about you, about your answers to questions, about your skills, about the results of tests, and about the references you provide. We process this data to create and manage the Uncap account and to check your suitability. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. The data collected when using the application form is stored for the duration of our business relationship and based on legal provisions. If no business relationship is established in the initial application process, this cannot be ruled out for the future. For this reason, we reserve the right to continue to store the aforementioned data. If a business relationship is not established, the application data will be deleted after 24 months, subject to a justified revocation by the applicant.

Application for funding

To apply for Uncap funding, you need to provide us with company data as well as personal data and connect your Accounting System with the Uncap-Platform. We need insight into this information to assess the state of your business and the risks associated with potential funding.

In case we have access to your accounting system, we will pull the data to calculate the KPIs for your dashboard at Uncap as well as to calculate overall revenues and according to repurchasing of shares. The current accounting system is Wave Financial USA Inc. Their privacy policy can be found here: https://www.waveapps.com/legal/privacy-policy

As part of the application process, we also work together with Zortify to perform some personality tests. Their privacy policy can be found here: https://zortify.com/privacy-policy/

Furthermore, we work with the service provider Typeform to check your named references. You can find their privacy policy here: https://admin.typeform.com/to/dwk6gt

We will review your application based on your company data and the aggregated data mentioned above. All data regarding your application is stored with your Uncap account. Only aggregated or anonymized data is processed in the application and review process. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

Using the Uncap-Platform

When you log in to your Uncap account, you can examine your funded budget, financial KPIs, repayment history, and regular reporting.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data 

A wide range of data processing transactions is possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred before your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR) 

IF DATA ARE PROCESSED BASED ON ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS, AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency 

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work, or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses. 

Right to data portability 

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process based on your consent or to fulfill a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible. 

SSL and/or TLS encryption 

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from „HTTP://“ to „HTTPS://“ and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line. 

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. 

Information about, rectification, and eradication of data 

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source, and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data.

To do so, you may contact us at any time at the address provided in section „Information Required by Law.“ The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases: 

If you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted unlawfully, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data instead of demanding the eradication of this data.
If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.

If you have objected according to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights, and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data. 

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – except for their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise, or defend legal entitlements or to
protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

Disclosure of data

In principle, we will only pass on the data we collect if:

  • you have given your explicit consent according to Art. 6(1) (a) GDPR;
  • disclosure is necessary according to Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in your data not being disclosed;
  • we are legally obliged to do so under Art. 6(1) (c) GDPR; or
  • this is permitted by law and is required under Art. 6(1) (b) GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you or for taking steps at your request before entering into a contract.

They are contractually bound by our instructions, have appropriate technical and organizational measures in place to protect the rights of data subjects, and are carefully monitored by us.

In addition, data may be disclosed in connection with official requests, court orders, and legal proceedings if this is necessary to pursue or enforce rights.

In some instances, our website and its pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses.

The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the technically error-free and optimized provision of the operator’s services. If a corresponding agreement has been requested (e.g. an agreement to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place exclusively based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agreement can be revoked at any time. 

If other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your browsing patterns) should be stored, they are addressed separately in this Data Protection Declaration.

The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your agreement (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested.

This shall be without prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods. 

Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax 

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone, or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us to process your request. We do not pass these data on without your consent. 

The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us. 

The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your consent to the storage, or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

If you activate these links, we naturally no longer have any influence on which data is collected by the respective providers and which data they record. For more detailed information on data collection and use, please refer to the privacy policies of the respective providers.

On our website, we link to our company profiles on the respective social networks. Please note, that when you activate a link to a social network, data is transferred to the servers of the respective provider. If you are logged in to the respective social network at that moment with your username and password, the information that you are visiting our website will be transferred to the social network and the respective provider may assign this information to your user account.

Basically, we have no way of influencing the data processing regarding social networks. But we do receive statistics about usage and visits of our company profiles on the social networks (e.g., information about the number of views, interactions such as likes, comments, and retweets, and aggregated demographic and other information or statistics). For this purpose, we submit certain parameters regarding our company and the services and content we offer on our company profile to the social network. This information is used by the providers to create more detailed statistics. In addition, the providers may use data they collect when you visit the social network for their own purposes beyond our control.

If we receive your personal data via our social media profiles (e.g. via direct messages), you are entitled to the rights set out in this privacy policy (see section 8 “Your rights”). You can send us your inquiries to gain access to stored personal data concerning data processing in the context of our company profiles using contact data specified in section 1. We will then inform you about the data we have collected on our own and the data that was transmitted to us to comply with the rights you have exercised against us.

If you also intend to assert rights against the social network provider, the easiest way to do so is to directly contact the respective provider. The provider knows the details on the technical operation of the platform and the associated data processing as well as the concrete purposes of data processing and can put appropriate measures into practice to comply with your inquiry. The contact details can be found in the privacy notice linked above. We gladly support you in asserting your rights to the extent of our competence.

The legal basis for linking and operating our company social media profiles is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR based on our legitimate interest in our corporate communications in the respective social networks.

5. Newsletter data

If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on this website, we will need your Email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and consent to the receipt of the newsletter. No further data shall be collected or shall be collected only voluntarily. We shall use such data only for the sending of the requested information and shall not share such data with any third parties.

The processing of the information entered into the newsletter subscription form shall occur exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You may revoke the consent you have given to the archiving of data, the e-mail address, and the use of this information for the sending of the newsletter at any time, for instance by clicking on the „Unsubscribe“ link in the newsletter. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data processing transactions that have taken place to date.

The data deposited with us to subscribe to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter or the newsletter service provider and deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter.

After you unsubscribe from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be stored by us or the newsletter service provider on a blacklist to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist is used only for this purpose and not merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is indefinite. You may object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interests.
