In Detail
1. Purpose of the processing of personal data

We process your personal data primarily to offer and provide our services, in particular to enable you to start a business and to seek advice from us and our partners in this regard.

In particular, we process your personal data:

- to enter into and process contracts with you;
- to enter into and perform contracts with our suppliers, customers and business partners with whom you interact and for customer relationship management;
- to enable our users to communicate and exchange documents with other users and with third parties;
- to better understand our customers and their behaviour and affinities and to assess and improve the uptake of our services and our service-related communications;
- on behalf of our users, to test your financial performance;
- for advertising and marketing for our own and for other offers of the Mobiliar Group, e.g. for the organisation of events, competitions etc. and for the dispatch of information and marketing messages tailored to target groups. Marketing measures are carried out on the basis of the legitimate interest of Foundera or, where necessary, with your consent. You can object to this data processing at any time;

The personal data processed by Foundera originates primarily from you personally (e.g. when concluding a contract, from telephone conversations, e-mail traffic). However, personal data may be matched with personal and non-personal information from publicly accessible sources (e.g. the Internet) for marketing purposes. Furthermore, personal data may also be collected by companies of the Mobiliar Group and matched with existing data, subject to compliance with the applicable legal requirements. This also includes data on the use of their websites.

2. Contact by the Visitor / Newsletter

We also process personal data if you contact us as a website visitor, for example via a contact form, and voluntarily provide us with details such as your name and e-mail address. The personal data that is collected in this way is determined by the information requested.

Foundera uses e-mail, telephone and other communication channels (e.g. push messages) to send you individually tailored offers or relevant information. For all types, the personal data you provide (e.g. surname, first name, e-mail address) is used for a personalised approach.

When sending via e-mail, push messages and other electronic channels, we may also process information about the response to messages (e.g. whether a newsletter/advertising e-mail was received and opened) in order to identify messages that are of interest to you and to optimise our measures for you. In addition, we can analyse the use of our website that was visited via a link in the e-mail. We use this information to measure the success of a campaign. These analyses are carried out in aggregated form, i.e. without reference to persons.
