Use of Google Analytics with anonymization function
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help us analyze how users use our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Because IP anonymization is activated on our web pages, your IP address is first masked (abbreviated) by Google within member states of the European Union and in other countries signed up to the agreement outside of the European Economic Area. It is only in exceptional cases that a complete IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the US and masked there. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services to us relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our website. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of our website (including your IP address) being sent to or processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
You will find more details at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de (general information on Google Analytics and data privacy). Please note that on our website the code "gat. anonymizeIp();" has been added to Google Analytics in order to ensure IP masking.

Rights of the data subject

You have the right:

  • to obtain information about your personal data being processed by us, pursuant to Article 15 of the GDPR. In particular, you have the right to information on the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, the envisaged storage period, the existence of the right to request rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or to object to such processing, the right to lodge a complaint, the right to information on the source of your data, where these were not collected on our website, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, where applicable, meaningful information about it;
  • to obtain without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data stored by us or to have incomplete personal data stored by us completed, pursuant to Article 16 of the GDPR;
  • to obtain the erasure of personal data stored by us, pursuant to Article 17 of the GDPR, provided that processing is not necessary for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • to obtain the restriction of processing of your personal data, pursuant to Article 18 of the GDPR, where the accuracy of the data is contested by you, the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your personal data, where we no longer require the personal data but it is required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or where you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21 of the GDPR;
  • to receive the personal data that you have provided to us, pursuant to Article 20 of the GDPR, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to have the data transmitted to another controller;
  • to withdraw your consent at any time, pursuant to Article 7, Paragraph 3 of the GDPR. This means that we may no longer undertake data processing based on this consent going forward; and
  • to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in your habitual residence or place of work, pursuant to Article 77 of the GDPR.

Lawfulness of processing

Article 6, Paragraph 1 (a) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing procedures where we receive consent to process the data for a specific purpose. Where the processing of personal data is required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, the legal grounds for processing can be found in Article 6, Paragraph 1 (b) of the GDPR. The same applies for processing that is required in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract, as would be the case when dealing with enquiries into our services. Where our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, for example, for the purpose of complying with tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6, Paragraph 1 (c) of the GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. For instance, this would be the case if a visitor to our company was injured and we needed to provide their name, age, insurance details or other vital information to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The basis for this would be Article 6, Paragraph 1 (d) of the GDPR. Finally, processing can also be based on Article 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR if it is not justified by any of the aforementioned legal grounds and if it is required for the purposes of the legitimate interests of the company or a third party, insofar as the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Processing of this kind is permitted to us because it is expressly mentioned by European legislators, who took the view that a legitimate interest can also exist if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47, Sentence 2 of the GDPR).

Legitimate interests in the data processing, pursued by the controller or a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is the execution of our business operations for the benefit of the well-being of all our staff and clients, tenants, users and other contacts.

Legal or contractual guidelines on the provision of personal data; Requirement for performance of contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide their data; Potential consequences of non-provision
Please note that the provision of personal data may be partly required by law (e.g. for tax purposes) or may arise from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contractual partner). From time to time it may also be necessary that a data subject provides us with their personal data for processing by us for the performance of a contract. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company is signing an agreement with them. Failure to provide those data may result in an inability to sign the contract with the data subject. Before a data subject provides their personal data, they must contact one of our staff who will explain to the data subject in detail whether the provision of their personal data is required by law or for the performance of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide their personal data and the potential consequences of failing to provide those data.


Right to object

You have the right at any time to have your personal data confirmed, corrected, updated, supplemented, anonymized, blocked, restricted or erased. You may object to the use of your personal data at any time. 
Simply send us an email.
