Data protection declaration

Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is particularly important to the management of Steinberg Real Estate Management GmbH. In principle, the Steinberg Real Estate Management GmbH website can be used without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of our company’s special services via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of an affected person, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Ordinance and in compliance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to Steinberg Real Estate Management GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, the data subjects are informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

Steinberg Real Estate Management GmbH, as the controller responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of personal data processed via this website. Nonetheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each person concerned is free to provide us with personal data by alternative means, for example by telephone..

Cookies

The Internet pages of Steinberg Real Estate Management GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, Steinberg Real Estate Management GmbH is able to provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the use of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised for the user’s benefit. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website who uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all current Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable under certain circumstances.

Collection of general data and information

The Steinberg Real Estate Management GmbH website collects a number of general data and information each time a person or an automated system accesses the website. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the Internet page from which an accessing system reaches our Internet page (so-called referrer), (4) the subwebsites accessed via an accessing system on our Internet page, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet page, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider’s IP address, and (5) the date and time of access to the Internet page.

When using this general data and information, Steinberg Real Estate Management GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) to optimize the content of our website and advertising, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated statistically by Steinberg Real Estate Management GmbH on the one hand and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

Privacy Policy for the Use and Use of AddThis

The controller has integrated components of AddThis on this website. AddThis is a so-called bookmarking provider. The service allows a simplified bookmarking of web pages via buttons. A list of bookmarking and sharing services is displayed by running over the AddThis component with the mouse or by clicking on it. AddThis is used on more than 15 million websites, and the buttons are displayed more than 20 billion times a year according to the information provided by the operating company.

The operating company of AddThis is AddThis, Inc. 1595 Spring Hill Road, Suite 300, Vienna, VA 22182, USA.

Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller, on which an AddThis component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data-processing system of the data subject is automatically induced by the AddThis component to download data from the www.addthis.com website. In the course of this technical procedure, AddThis is informed about the visit and which specific individual page of this website is used by the information technology system used by the person concerned. In addition, AddThis is informed of the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the computer system used by the person concerned, the type of browser, the browser language, the Internet page accessed before our website, the date and time of the visit to our website. AddThis uses this data to create anonymous user profiles. The data and information transferred to AddThis in this way enables AddThis itself and its affiliates or its affiliates to target visitors to the web pages of the controller through personalized and interest-based advertising.

AddThis displays personalized and interest-based advertising based on a cookie set by the company. This cookie analyses the individual surfing behaviour of the computer system used by the person concerned. The cookie stores the visits to websites made by the computer system.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already shown above, by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent AddThis from placing a cookie on the person’s information technology system. In addition, cookies already set by AddThis can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject also has the possibility to object permanently to the processing of personal data by AddThis.

However, by setting the opt-out cookie, it is possible that the data controller’s Internet pages may no longer be fully available to the data subject.

The current Privacy Policy is available at http://www.addthis.com/privacy/privacy-policy

Privacy Policy for the Use and Use of Adobe Analytics (Omniture) / Adobe Marketing Cloud

The controller has integrated Adobe components into this website. Adobe Analytics (Omniture) or the Adobe Marketing Cloud (hereinafter referred to as “Omniture”) is a tool that enables more efficient online marketing and web analytics. Omniture is part of the Adobe Marketing Cloud. The Adobe Marketing Cloud enables real-time analytics of visitor flows to websites. The real-time analyses include project reports and allow an ad hoc analysis of website visitors. Customer interactions are presented in such a way as to provide the controller with a better overview of the online activities of the users of this website by displaying and converting the data into reports in simple, interactive dashboards. This enables the controller to receive information in real time and identify problems more quickly.

The operator of these services is Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Republic of Ireland.

Omniture places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned (cookies have already been explained in advance; the corresponding information can be found above). The controller ensures that the tracking records submitted to Adobe’s data center are anonymized prior to geolocalization through a server setting. The anonymization is implemented by replacing the last part of the IP address. The controller responsible for processing the data has made settings on the server side which allow the IP address of the data subject to be anonymized independently of each other before being processed for geolocalization and range measurement. On behalf of the controller, Adobe will use the data and information obtained via our website to evaluate the user behaviour of the data subject. In addition, Adobe will use the data to generate reports on user activity on our behalf and to provide other services to our company in connection with the use of our website. Adobe does not merge the individual’s IP address with other personally identifiable information.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already shown above, by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Omniture from placing a cookie on the person’s information technology system. In addition, the cookies already set by Omniture can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.

In addition, the individual concerned has the possibility to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by the Adobe cookie relating to the use of this website and the processing of such data by Adobe. To do this, the person concerned must press the unsubscribe button under the link http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/opt-out.html, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If cookies are deleted on the person’s system after an objection has been raised, the person concerned must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

However, by setting the opt-out cookie, it is possible that the data controller’s Internet pages may no longer be fully available to the data subject.

The current Adobe Privacy Policy is available at http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy.html

Privacy policy for the use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about the Internet page from which an affected person has accessed an Internet page (so-called referrer), which sub pages of the Internet page were accessed or how often and for which length of time a sub page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

For web analysis via Google Analytics, the controller shall use the addition “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned will be shortened and made anonymous by Google if access to our Internet pages is made from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google makes it possible to analyse the use of our website. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data processing system of the person concerned is automatically induced by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google receives information about personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of the visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the place from which access was granted and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Whenever you visit our website, these personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, are transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already shown above, by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the person’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, it is possible for the person concerned to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website as well as to the processing of such data by Google and to prevent such collection. To do this, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is regarded by Google as a contradiction. If the information technology system of the person concerned is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the person concerned must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person who is to be assigned to their area of power, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Further information and Google’s current privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/analytics/.

Privacy Policy for using Jetpack for WordPress

The controller has integrated Jetpack on this website. Jetpack is a WordPress plug-in which offers additional functions to the operator of a website based on WordPress. Jetpack allows the website operator, among other things, an overview of the website visitors. By displaying related articles and publications or the possibility to share content on the site, the increase in the number of visitors is also possible. In addition, security features are built into Jetpack so that a website using Jetpack is better protected against brute force attacks. Jetpack also optimizes and speeds up the loading of images integrated on the website.

The operator of the Jetpack plug-in for WordPress is Automattic Inc., 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The operating company uses the tracking technology of Quantcast Inc., 201 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Jetpack places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Jetpack component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data processing system of the person concerned is automatically induced by the respective Jetpack component to transmit data to Automattic for analysis purposes. In the course of this technical procedure, Automattic is informed about data that are subsequently used to compile an overview of website visits. The data thus obtained will be used to analyse the behaviour of the data subject who accessed the website of the controller and will be analysed with a view to optimising the website. The data collected on the Jetpack component will not be used to identify the data subject without prior consent of the data subject. The data will also come to the attention of Quantcast. Quantcast uses the data for the same purposes as Automattic.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already shown above, by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Automattic/Quantcast from placing a cookie on the person’s information technology system. In addition, cookies already set by Automattic can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, it is possible for the person concerned to object to the collection of data generated by the Jetpack cookie relating to the use of this website and to the processing of such data by Automattic/Quantcast and to prevent such collection. To do this, the person concerned must press the opt-out button under the link https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If cookies are deleted on the person’s system after an objection has been raised, the person concerned must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

However, by setting the opt-out cookie, it is possible that the data controller’s Internet pages may no longer be fully available to the data subject.

The current Automattic Privacy Policy is available at https://automattic.com/privacy/ Quantcast’s current Privacy Policy is available at https://www.quantcast.com/privacy/

Privacy Policy for the Use and Use of LinkedIn

The controller has integrated components of LinkedIn Corporation on this website.

Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b of the DS Regulation. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation through which a processing of personal data is required, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company would be injured and his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations are based on this legal basis which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the party concerned do not predominate. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to conduct our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

Duration for which personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the relevant data will be deleted as a matter of routine, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

Legal or contractual provisions governing the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation on the person concerned to provide personal data; possible consequences of non-delivery

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e. g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e. g. information on the contractual partner). In some cases it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data which we must subsequently process. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer informs the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is prescribed by law or contract or whether it is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not made available.

Passing an automated decision making process

As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
