3. Gathering and processing of personal data on retrieval of the website
You can generally visit our webpages without telling us who you are. Our web servers, however, automatically store technical information during your visit. This includes the type of web browser, the operating system you use, your IP address, your internet service provider, the website that has referred you to us, the webpages of our website that you call up and the date and length of the visit. The processing of these data in particular of your IP address and the other mentioned data is required to make the provision of the website possible in the first place. For this purpose, your IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. We generally do not combine these data with other data from different sources. The legal basis for this data processing to enable the use of the webpages is Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR, for which our legitimate interest is the provision of our offer.
For the rest, we store and analyse these data exclusively for statistical purposes and only in anonymised form, and we use them solely in this anonymised form, likewise on the basis of Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR, for the analysis of the utilisation of our offer, its further develop-ment and optimisation. Our legitimate interest is the continuous improvement of our offer to make it as user-friendly as possible for you.
4. Kind and scope of the further data gathering and processing
In some cases, however, we need you to specify your personal data, notably:
• when performing our services, meaning in the operation of a real estate development company and in all related transactions;
• when you contact us;
• if you have signed up for our newsletter to receive information free of charge from us or if you participate in opinion polls.
a) Performance of services and other contact requests
We gather or process personal data only if you provide this information voluntarily, e.g. in the context of a request. In that case, your information from the request including the contact details indicated there will be stored and used by us for the fulfilment of the pur-pose related to the transmission, e.g. for the processing of your enquiry and in the case of follow-up questions. The basis of this storing and use of this personal data is Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as you enter this personal data for the purpose of initiat-ing a contractual relationship with us. This is the only case requiring the input of person-al data in the definition of Art. 13 (2) lit. e) GDPR.
Otherwise, this storing and use takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR, for which our legitimate interest rests in the diligent processing of your enquiry.
If you assign us with the performance of a service or if we use your services, we gath-er, store and use your personal data generally only to the extent it is necessary for the performance of the services or the execution of the contract. The legal basis for the re-lated data processing is Art. 6 (1) sent. 1, lit. b) GDPR. For this purpose, it can also be necessary to transfer your personal data to companies that we engage for the perfor-mance of the service or the execution of the contract. These are, e.g. transport compa-nies or other service providers. This transmission to the service providers engaged by us also takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
In all cases in which the data processing, as described above, serves for the fulfilment of the contract, the provision of your personal data is required for the conclusion of the contract (cf. Art. 13 (2) lit. e) GDPR). Without your personal data, we are unable to exe-cute the contract.
b) Newsletters and market research
We use the personal data transmitted to us in particular to inform you about services and offers, provided that you have expressly agreed thereto. To be able to contact you more easily and quickly than when using regular mail, please inform us of your email address for this purpose. If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the web-site, we require a valid email address from you. To be able to verify that you are the owner of the indicated email address and that you consent to the receipt of the newslet-ter, we will initially send an email containing a confirmation link for the newsletter sub-scription to the indicated email address after you signed up for the newsletter. Your subscription will be effective only after you have clicked on the link sent to you for this purpose after your registration (so-called double opt-in procedure). No further data are gathered. We use these data exclusively for mailing the requested newsletter. You can revoke the granted consent for the storing of the email address and its use for the mail-ing of the newsletter at any time, for example, by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legal basis for the data processing in connection with the newsletter is your consent (Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. a) GDPR).
If you have given us your consent, we will use your personal data potentially also for market research conducted on behalf of the Operator Companies. In this case, as well, the legal basis for the processing is your consent according to Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. a) GDPR, which we will obtain separately for this purpose.
5. Are personal data passed on to third parties?
Your personal data are usually only passed on to third parties with your explicit consent according to Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. a) GDPR. The sole exceptions from this are transmissions to our service providers or cooperation partners that we require for the performance of our services or our online offer and whom we have contracted accordingly (for example, service providers for the mailing of the newsletter, technical service providers, and payment service providers). Accordingly, your data are transmitted to such service providers and cooperation partners for the purposes of the contract fulfilment according to Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR. In these cases, we strictly observe the requirements of the GDPR in the same way as do our partners. Of course, we ensure before transferring your personal data that the service providers and cooperation partners have taken the required technical and organisational measures in the process to ensure an appropriate level of protection. The scope of the data transmission is limited to the respectively required minimum measure.
Your data will not be sold, hired or otherwise made available to third parties.
Personal data will only be transmitted to public institutions and authorities entitled to infor-mation within the scope of statutory duties to provide information or if we are obligated by a court order to provide the information. In that case, the transfer of your data is required by Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. c) GDPR for the fulfilment of a legal obligation that is imposed on us.

7. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics. These are services of Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). We have concluded a contract with Google on commissioned data processing and we fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics. Google uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your usage of the website. We use Google Analytics in combination with the extension "_anonymizehelp()", in order to ensure an anonymised gathering of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). By activation of this expansion for our website, your IP address will be truncated by Google inside of the Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the transmission to a server of Google in the USA. The complete IP address will only be transmitted in exceptional cases to a server of Google in the USA and it will be truncated there.
Google will use this information on our behalf to analyse your usage of the website, compile reports about website activities, and perform additional services for the website operator relating to the usage of the website and of the internet. Google will also transfer this infor-mation to third parties if applicable, provided that such is mandated by law or to the extent, as third parties process these data on account of Google.
Google will never combine your IP address with other data of Google Inc. You can object at any time to the data gathering and storage with effect for the future. You can prevent the storing of cookies by making corresponding settings in your browser software.
In alternative to the browser plug-in, you can prevent this gathering by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents the future gathering of your data when you visit this website: Google Analytics deactivate. Please do not delete this cookie for as long as you would like to maintain your objection. If you delete this cookie, you will have to store such a cookie again by clicking on the link if you want to object to the gathering of your data by Google.
For the transmission of personal data to the USA, a determination of appropriateness has been issued by the EU Commission (No. 2016/1250), according to which companies that fulfil certain criteria assure an appropriate level of protection, also known as “EU-US Privacy Shield”. These companies are entered in a list, the so-called “Privacy Shield List”. Google is one of the companies on this list. The transmission to Google in connection with Google Analytics is based on Art. 45 and Art. 28 GDPR.
The legal basis for our use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) sent. 1, lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest consists of the improvement and further development of our website to optimise your browsing experience by customising the website and thereby assuring the greatest possible user-friendliness.
An automated decision-making process including profiling according to Art. 22 (1) and (4) GDPR is not implemented by us.
We use suitable technical and organisational security measures according to Art. 32 GDPR to ensure an appropriate protection level for your data managed by us and in particular, to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulations, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are being continuously improved according to technological progress. We store information that is relevant for data protection exclusively on secured systems in Germany. Access to them is enabled only for a limited number of authorised persons, who are obligated for data secrecy and entrusted with the technical, administrative or editorial management of the data.
9. General storage duration and deletion
We store your personal data only for as long as required for the intended purpose (e.g. contract fulfilment, answering your query) or justified reasons in the definition of Art. 17 (3) GDPR, e.g. statutory retention periods require storage. For as long as statutory retention obligations, e.g. tax and commercial legal regulations oppose a deletion of your personal data, we restrict the processing of your data; your data will be deleted in subsequence in accord-ance with the legal regulations.
Data of job applicants will be deleted at the longest six months after the end of the application procedure, unless you have given us consent for the storing beyond this period or unless justified reasons on our end are opposed to deletion, e.g. defence of legal claims.
10. Your rights
You have the right at any time to obtain information from us free of charge and in writing or electronic form about the personal data relating to you that is stored by us, the purposes of the processing, the origin of the date, and about which transfers have been made to which recipients or categories of recipients, the storage duration and the rights of data subjects that are available to you.
In addition, you have the right to demand the correction of incorrect data, deletion of personal data stored about you, insofar as no justified reasons are opposed thereto and respectively the restriction of the processing. Insofar as such personal data are affected by this that are required for the performance of the service to you, the deletion or restriction of the processing of these data can follow only when you no longer use our services or our offer.
You have the right for reasons that arise in your particular situation to object at any time to data processing that is based on Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR, unless we can prove compul-sory reasons warranting protection that override your interest or unless the processing serves purposes of assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. You can object to data processing for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without requiring any special reasons.
If you provide data relating to you and we process these data based on your consent or for the purpose of contract fulfilment, you can demand to receive these data from us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or that we transfer these data to another data controller, provided that this is technically possible (so-called right of data portability).
You can revoke all consents to the use of personal data declared by you at any time with effect for the future.
You can furthermore lodge complaint against our data processing with a supervisory authori-ty, if you believe the data processing violates legal regulations.
To assert the rights listed above, please contact us at the address specified above or write an email to us or our Data Protection Officer at email@example.com.
