2. purposes and legal basis on which we process your data
We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other applicable data protection regulations (details below). Which data is processed in detail and how it is used depends largely on the services requested or agreed upon in each case. Further details or additions to the purposes of data processing can be found in the respective contract documents, forms, a declaration of consent and/or other information provided to you (e.g. in the context of the use of our website or our terms and conditions). Furthermore, this data protection information may be updated from time to time.
2.1 Purposes for fulfilling a contract or pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 b DSGVO)
The processing of personal data is carried out to execute our contracts with you and the execution of your orders as well as to carry out measures and activities within the framework of pre-contractual relations, e.g. with interested parties. In particular, the processing serves to provide services in accordance with your orders and wishes and includes the services, measures and activities necessary for this purpose. This includes all business activities with a focus on real estate (especially acquisition, sale, brokerage, leasing and administration) and investments in real estate (funds and direct investments). This essentially includes contract-related communication with you, the verifiability of transactions, orders and other agreements as well as quality control through appropriate documentation, goodwill procedures, measures for the management and optimization of business processes as well as the fulfillment of general duties of care, management and control by affiliated companies (e.g. parent company); statistical evaluations for corporate management, cost recording and controlling, reporting, internal and external communication, emergency management, billing and tax evaluation of operational services, risk management, assertion of legal claims and defense in legal disputes; ensuring IT security (and the ability to handle the data in the event of legal disputes); and Guaranteeing IT security (including system and plausibility tests) and general security, including building and plant security, securing and exercising building rights (e.g. through access controls); guaranteeing the integrity, authenticity and availability of data, preventing and solving criminal offences; monitoring by supervisory bodies or control authorities (e.g. auditing).
2.2 Purposes within the scope of a legitimate interest of us or third parties (Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO)
Beyond the actual fulfillment of the contract or preliminary contract, we may process your data if necessary to protect legitimate interests of us or third parties, in particular for purposes
advertising or market and opinion research, provided you have not objected to the use of your data
the obtaining of information and data exchange with credit agencies, insofar as this exceeds our economic risk
the testing and optimization of procedures for requirements analysis

statistical evaluations or market analysis
the assertion of legal claims and defence in legal disputes that are not directly attributable to the contractual relationship

2.3 Purposes within the scope of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a DSGVO)
A processing of your personal data for specific purposes (e.g. use of your e-mail address for marketing purposes) can also take place on the basis of your consent. As a rule, you can revoke your consent at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were issued to us prior to the validity of the DSGVO, i.e. before 25 May 2018. You will be informed separately about the purposes and consequences of revocation or failure to grant consent in the corresponding text of the consent.
As a general rule, the revocation of a consent is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected and remains lawful.
2.4 Purposes to meet legal requirements (Art. 6 para. 1 c DSGVO) or in the public interest (Art. 6 para. 1 e DSGVO)
Like everyone who is involved in the business world, we are also subject to a variety of legal obligations. Primarily these are legal requirements (e.g. commercial and tax laws), but also, where applicable, regulatory or other official requirements. The purposes of processing may include identity and age verification, fraud and money laundering prevention, the prevention, combating and clarification of terrorist financing and asset-endangering criminal offences, comparisons with European and international anti-terrorist lists, the fulfilment of tax law control and reporting obligations and the archiving of data for data protection and data security purposes as well as audits by tax authorities and other offices. In addition, the disclosure of personal data may become necessary within the scope of official/judicial measures for the purpose of gathering evidence, criminal prosecution or enforcement of civil law claims.
3. the categories of data processed by us, if we do not receive data directly from you, and their origin
As far as this is necessary for the provision of our services, we process personal data permissibly received from other companies or other third parties (e.g. credit agencies, address publishers, property and facility management). In addition, we process personal data that we have permissibly taken, received or acquired from publicly accessible sources (such as telephone directories, commercial and association registers, registration registers, debtor registers, land registers, press, Internet and other media) and may process them.
Relevant categories of personal data may include in particular
Personal data (name, date of birth, place of birth, nationality, marital status, profession/industry and comparable data)
Contact details (address, e-mail address, telephone number and similar data)
Address data (registration data and comparable data)
Payment/confirmation of cover for bank and credit cards
Information about your financial situation (creditworthiness data including scoring, i.e. data for assessing the economic risk)
Data on your use of the telemedia offered by us (e.g. time of access to our websites, apps or newsletters, pages/links clicked on by us or entries and comparable data)
4. recipients or categories of recipients of your data
Within our company, those internal departments or organizational units receive your data that require it to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations or in the context of processing and implementing our legitimate interests. Your data will only be passed on to external parties
in connection with the contract execution
for the purpose of fulfilling legal requirements according to which we are obliged to provide information, report or pass on data or if the passing on of data is in the public interest (see section 2.4)
insofar as external service providers process data on our behalf as contract processors or function providers (e.g. external computer centers, support/maintenance of IT/IT applications, archiving, document processing, call center services, compliance services, controlling, data screening for anti-money laundering purposes, data validation or -plausibility checks, data destruction, purchasing/procurement, customer management, lettershops, marketing, media technology, research, risk controlling, accounting, telephony, website management, property and facility management, auditing services, credit institutions, printing companies or companies for data disposal, courier services, logistics)
on the basis of our legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of the third party for the purposes mentioned in section 2.2 (e.g. to authorities, credit agencies, collection agencies, lawyers, courts, creditors, companies belonging to the Group and committees and supervisory bodies)
if you have given us permission to transfer your data to third parties.
We will not pass on your data to third parties beyond this. If we commission service providers within the scope of order processing, your data is subject to the same security standards there as with us. In all other cases, the recipients may only use the data for the purposes for which they were transmitted.
5. duration of the storage of your data
We process and store your data for the duration of our business relationship. This also includes the initiation of a contract (pre-contractual legal relationship) and the execution of a contract.
If the data are no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations and rights, they will be regularly deleted, unless their – temporary – further processing is necessary to fulfil the purposes listed under item 2.2 out of an overriding legitimate interest. Such an overriding legitimate interest also exists, for example, if deletion is not possible or only possible at disproportionately high expense due to the special type of storage and processing for other purposes is excluded by suitable technical and organizational measures.
6. processing of your data in a third country or by an international organization
Data will be transferred to countries outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) (so-called third countries) if it is necessary to execute an order/contract from or with you, if it is required by law (e.g. tax reporting obligations), if it is in the scope of a legitimate interest of us or a third party or if you have given us your consent.
The processing of your data in a third country may also be carried out in connection with the involvement of service providers (e.g. in the context of order processing). Unless the EU Commission has decided on an adequate level of data protection in the country in question, we will ensure that your rights and freedoms are adequately protected and guaranteed in accordance with EU data protection regulations by means of appropriate agreements. We will provide you with the corresponding detailed information on request.
Information on suitable or appropriate guarantees and on the possibility of obtaining a copy from you can be obtained on request from the company data protection officer.
7. your data protection rights
Under certain conditions you can assert your data protection rights against us
Thus, you have the right to receive information from us about your data stored with us according to the rules of Art. 15 DSGVO (if necessary with restrictions according to § 34 BDSG).
Upon your request, we will correct the data stored about you in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO if it is incorrect or inaccurate.
If you wish, we will delete your data in accordance with the principles of Art. 17 DSGVO, provided that other legal regulations (e.g. legal storage obligations or the restrictions according to § 35 BDSG) or an overriding interest on our part (e.g. to defend our rights and claims) do not conflict with this.
Taking into account the requirements of Art. 18 DSGVO, you can demand that we restrict the processing of your data.
Furthermore, you may object to the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO, on the basis of which we must stop processing your data. However, this right of objection only applies if there are very special circumstances in your personal situation, whereby our company’s rights may conflict with your right of objection.
You also have the right to receive your data in a structured, common and machine-readable format under the conditions of Art. 20 DSGVO or to transfer it to a third party.
In addition, you have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time with effect for the future (see section 2.3).
Furthermore, you have the right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO). However, we recommend that you always address a complaint to our data protection officer first.
If possible, your requests to exercise your rights should be addressed in writing to the above address or directly to our data protection officer.
You are also entitled to the aforementioned rights if we process personal data within the scope of joint responsibility with a third party in accordance with Art. 26 DSGVO. This is currently limited to individual constellations in the field of property and facility management. Insofar as you interact with a property or facility manager commissioned by us and we have concluded a contract with this manager on joint responsibility, it is agreed that the parties must fulfil their obligations under data protection law in accordance with their respective responsibilities for the individual process stages. It is regulated that the property/facility manager is available as the primary contact point for the rights to which you are entitled under the DSGVO. Based on the contractual agreements made in these cases, the contractual partners support each other mutually in order to comprehensively guarantee your data protection rights.
8. scope of your obligations to provide us with your data
You only need to provide us with the data that is necessary for the establishment and execution of a business relationship or for a pre-contractual relationship with us or that we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data we will usually not be able to conclude or execute the contract. This may also refer to data required later within the scope of the business relationship. If we request additional data from you, you will be informed separately of the voluntary nature of the information.
9. existence of an automated decision-making process in individual cases (including profiling)
We do not use purely automated decision-making procedures in accordance with Article 22 DSGVO. If we do use such a procedure in individual cases in the future, we will inform you of this separately if this is required by law.
Under certain circumstances, we may process your data partly with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling).
In order to be able to inform and advise you about products in a targeted manner, we may use evaluation tools. These enable us to design products, communication and advertising, including market and opinion research, in line with your needs.
Such methods can also be used to assess your creditworthiness and solvency as well as to combat money laundering and fraud. So-called « score values » can be used to assess your creditworthiness and solvency. Scoring involves calculating the probability using mathematical procedures with which a customer will meet his payment obligations in accordance with the contract. Such score values thus support us, for example, in the assessment of creditworthiness, decision-making in the context of product deals and are incorporated into our risk management. The calculation is based on mathematically-statistically recognized and proven procedures and is carried out on the basis of your data, in particular income, expenses, existing liabilities, occupation, employer, length of employment, experience from the previous business relationship, contractual repayment of previous loans and information from credit agencies.
Information on nationality as well as special categories of personal data according to Art. 9 DSGVO are not processed.
Information about your right of objection Art. 21 DSGVO
1. you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data, which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO (data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests) or Art. 6 para. 1 e DSGVO (data processing in the public interest), if there are reasons for doing so that arise from your particular situation This also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 DSGVO. If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
2. we may also process your personal data in order to carry out direct advertising. If you do not wish to receive advertising, you have the right to object to this at any time; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. We will take this objection into account for the future.
We will no longer process your data for the purposes of direct advertising if you object to the processing for these purposes. The objection can be made in any form and should be addressed to
and its subsidiaries.
