Objective

Deutsche Bank AG, India (“DB”) recognizes the importance of safeguarding non public personal information of customers and other users of web resources of DB (“Users”). DB is committed to retaining the trust of Users by using such information responsibly. Safeguarding this information and using it in a lawful manner consistent with individuals’ expectations is a cornerstone of our customer relationships. This policy (“Policy”) states the DB principles and requirements governing the collection, usage, retention, disclosure and disposal of User’s information. The implementation of this Policy meets all applicable legal requirements as of the date of its last revision. New laws and regulations relating to privacy continue to be passed and adopted. DB entities will be required to comply with any obligations or standards these new laws and regulations may impose, in addition to those set forth in this Policy.

Scope

The Policy establishes a minimum level of protection for User’s information. User’s information is to be collected, used, retained, disclosed and disposed of by all DB entities in accordance with the Policy throughout the lifecycle of the information.

Commitment to privacy

In using DB web resources, Users consent to the collection and use of their information by DB and consent to the terms of the Policy.
DB respects the privacy of the Users of its websites and web resources and is committed to protect it in all respects. The information about the User collected by DB is: (a) information supplied by Users and (b) information automatically tracked while navigation.
To avail certain products / services on DB websites, Users are required to provide certain information viz. name, address, email address, sex, age, PIN code, phone/mobile numbers, occupation, interests, etc.

To improve the responsiveness of the websites for Users, DB may use "cookies", or similar electronic tools to collect information by assigning each visitor a unique random number (User ID) to understand the User's individual interests. Unless User’s voluntarily identify themselves (through data input on website, for example), DB will have no way of knowing the identity of the Users, even if cookies are assigned to User’s computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information supplied by Users. A cookie cannot read data off hard drive of Users.

Web servers of DB automatically collect limited information about User’s computer's connection to the internet, including IP address. IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the internet know where to send data. IP addresses are not linked by DB to any personal information. In rare instances, IP addresses may be used to assist in deterring and/or preventing abusive or criminal activity on the DB website. This information is used to deliver DB web pages to Users upon request, to tailor our website to the interests of our Users, to measure traffic within our site and let us know the geographic locations from where Users access the web pages.

DB web resources may include links to other websites. Such sites are governed by their respective privacy policies, which are beyond control of DB. Once a User leaves DB servers, use of any information provided by User is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site User is visiting, which may differ from the Policy of DB. If you can't find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site's homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information. A provision of the link to third party web resources does not constitute an endorsement, approval, warranty or any form of association by or with DB or any of its affiliates. DB is not responsible for these third party web resources and accepts no liability whatsoever for them. Users should therefore remain alert when they leave DB site and read the privacy statements of other websites carefully. DB has no control over data that is submitted to these third parties and access to the data on such websites is at User’s own risk.

We never disclose information about a User to any other person or organisation without consent unless there is an emergency that requires it or DB is legally compelled to do so.

The User authorises DB to exchange, share, part with all information related to the details and transaction history of the Users to its affiliates / banks / financial institutions / credit bureaus / agencies / telecommunication or electronic clearing network as may be required by law, customary practice, credit reporting, statistical analysis and credit scoring, verification or risk management and shall not hold DB liable for use or disclosure of such information.
