The controller (entity acting as data controller) regularly verifies and updates the information on its websites. Despite the due care taken, it is possible that some of the information may have changed. Therefore, no liability can be assumed or guarantee given that the information is always current, correct and/or complete. The same applies to all other websites referred to via hyperlinks. The controller is not responsible for the content of the websites that are linked in this way.
The content and design of the website are copyrighted. Any reproduction of the pages or their contents requires the prior written consent of the controller, unless such reproduction is permitted by law.
Personal data is detailed information about personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as your name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Information that is not directly related to your actual identity is not considered personal data.
General purposes of data collection
Data is only collected, stored and processed for our own business purposes. Our websites are available to all users without requiring them to disclose personal data. Personal data will only be requested, processed and used to the extent necessary to provide the services or content that you have requested.
When you visit our website, our web servers temporarily store information in so-called server log files. This information includes the IP address assigned to your computer, the webpages you visit, the date and duration of your visit, the type of browser and operating system type used, and the website from which you are visiting us. This data is processed for the purpose of enabling use of the website (establish a connection), system security, technical administration of the network infrastructure and optimizing our Internet presence. This involves only information that does not permit any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
If you contact us by email or using the contact form, the information you provide will be saved for the purpose of processing your request and for possible follow-up questions. The personal data transmitted to us in this way will of course only be used for the purpose for which you made it available to us when contacting us.
The provision of this information is entirely voluntary and is performed with your consent. If the information involved is information relating to communication channels (such as postal address, e-mail address, telephone number), you also agree that we may contact you via these communication channels in order to respond to your request.
You can of course revoke your declarations of consent at any time in the future. To do this, please contact our data protection officer, whose contact details are listed below.
Collection of personal data for personalized use
In addition to the use of our website for purely informational purposes, we also offer various services and products that you can use if interested. To do this, you will usually have to provide additional personal data that we will use to provide the respective service. Optional information is marked accordingly. We only collect, process and use the personal data that is required for your use of the website and/or for the performance of a contract concluded with us, or which you specify yourself. This includes in particular the following inventory data and usage data, which may be transmitted by means of forms on our website or contractual documents:
- Name (form of address, first name, last name)
- Telephone number
- E-mail address
- User’s registration and login data
We use inventory data and usage data to establish, if applicable, a contractual relationship with you, to define its nature, to change or terminate it, to fulfill our contractual obligations, to log the user onto the website, and to contact you if requested to do so by you or required or legally permitted to do so within the scope of the contractual relationship.
If you have provided us with your consent, we also collect your data for the purpose of sending information material, brochures, advertising, event management, managing press contacts and the management of charity events for example.
If we provide you with contractual or precontractual services in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1(b) GDPR, the data to be processed, the type, the scope, the purpose and the need for its processing are determined by the underlying mandate. This includes inventory and master data (name, address, etc.) as well as contact data (e-mail address, telephone number, etc.). Furthermore, it may be necessary to collect other contract data (nature of the task, fees, terms, information about the brokered companies/services) and payment data. We may also process information on the characteristics and circumstances of persons or property belonging to them if this is forms part of the task we are to perform, for example the rental or sale of commercial or residential property. This can include information on personal circumstances, movable and immovable property for example.
Data protection relating to job applications and the application process
The controller collects and processes the applicants’ personal data for the purpose of carrying out the application process. Processing may also be performed electronically. This applies in particular if an applicant sends the relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example via e-mail or using a web form available on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of handling the employment relationship in compliance with statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted automatically six months after that applicant has been notified of the decision to reject his or her application, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller prevent their deletion. Other legitimate interest in this context would be the burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) for example.
Use and disclosure of personal data
If we disclose data to other persons or companies (processors or third parties) during our processing operation, transmit the data to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only take place on the basis of a legal authorization (e.g. if transmission of the data to third parties is required for contract performance pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1(b) DSGVO), if you have consented, if a legal obligation provides for this, or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).
If we commission third parties with the processing of data within the framework of a so-called “order processing contract”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and minimization. Legislators have stipulated a number of storage-related obligations and storage periods. Once these time periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted or blocked in accordance with statutory provisions. Where data is not subject to such statutory time limits, it will be deleted or blocked once the reasons for which it was collected cease to apply. If you have agreed to your data being stored, processed and used for a longer period of time, we will delete or block your data after this period has expired or if you your revoke your consent.
