These third parties are processors who act on behalf of the responsible institution mentioned in number 1 of this declaration. They process personal data according to the respective guidelines and exclusively to the respective purpose. In this context, Boerse Stuttgart GmbH remains the institution which is responsible for processing.

b) Disclosure to Government Agencies and Affiliated Companies

The transmission of personal data to government agencies and authorities only takes place as part of mandatory legal obligations.

Insofar as it is necessary to provide you the service desired, we reserve a transmission to other companies of the Boerse Stuttgart Group affiliated to us, e.g. Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse GmbH, Boerse Stuttgart Cats GmbH, EUWAX Stock Company and Boerse Stuttgart Securities GmbH.
