Allianz Global Investors’ Group Client Reporting Tool
We would like to inform you below about the processing of your Personal Data (i.e., data which can be linked/attributed to you as an individual person) in connection with the use of “AirPortal” (hereinafter: "Client Reporting Tool” or “AirPortal").
Purpose of processing
We use “AirPortal” to grant you access to your client reports/your company’s client reports or to allow you performing your related duties as Allianz Global Investors employee. AirPortal is a platform serviced by Instinct Studios Limited, UK.
Allianz Global Investors GmbH (“AllianzGI”, “we”, “us” or “our”) is the Data Controller responsible for data processing that is directly related to the use of the Client Reporting Tool. This means it is the entity deciding why and how to collect and process your Personal Data.
In addition, other companies of AllianzGI Group may become responsible for the processing of your Personal Data (for example in cases where your investment is with another AllianzGI company that is not Allianz Global Investors GmbH). A list of all AllianzGI entities with respective contact details is available under https://www.allianzgi.com/en/our-firm/our-offices.
To the extent two or more AllianzGI Group entities process your Personal Data in a joint manner, we kindly ask you to address any queries you may have to the Data Protection Officer whose details are set out at the end of this Data Privacy Notice. The Data Protection Officer will then forward your query to the AllianzGI entity who is primarily responsible, if necessary.
