Data Privacy Policy

We are glad that you are visiting our home page and we thank you for your interest in our company. We will treat your data as confidential and we greatly value the trust you place in us. We therefore feel obligated to handle your personal data with care and to protect them from any misuse in accordance with the law. We will do so in compliance with applicable data privacy and data security laws.

This Data Privacy Policy is intended to inform you when we will store which data and how we will use such data – of course in compliance with applicable German law. The level of data privacy we provide is in conformity with the level of data under European law and is based, in particular, on the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) as last amended. For Internet use we protect your personal data based on the provisions of the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz).

Collection and processing of personal data

You can generally visit our websites without telling us who you are. Our web servers will automatically store information of a general nature, including the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us, which of our websites you visit, and the date and length of each visit. None of the information we collect allows any inference as to your identity. We analyze these data only for statistical purposes and only in anonymous form.

However, in some cases we will need such personal data from you, specifically:

• if you sign up for our newsletter in order to receive free information, or

• when you contact us.

In that case we will use your personal data to inform you of services and offers. We will not transfer your data to any third parties except with your consent. To be able to contact you more easily and quickly than would be possible by mail, we ask that you provide us with your e-mail address. Of course, we will not use your e-mail address for advertising purposes except with your express consent. Provided that we have received your consent, we may also use your personal data for market research performed on behalf of Groß & Partner Grundstücksentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH and for the purposes stated below.

Use and transfer of collected data

We will use personal data made available by you exclusively for the stated or agreed purposes, i.e., generally for the performance of the contract with you or to respond to your inquiry.

If you use our services, we will, as a general rule, collect personal data only to the extent such data are required to provide those services. If we request any additional data, it will completely up to you whether or not to provide such data. Personal data will be processed exclusively to provide the requested services and to protect our own legitmate business interests.


Will personal data be transferred to third parties?

Your data will not be processed or used for consulting, advertising, or market research purposes, except with your express consent. Your data will not be sold, leased, or otherwise made available to any third parties. Personal data will be disclosed to government agencies or regulatory authorities only to the extent required by German law.

Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, to prepare a report about website activities for the website operators, and to provide additional services related to website and Internet use. Google may also transfer such information to third parties if this is required by law or if such data are processed by third parties on behalf of Google.

Google will never correlate your IP address with any other data of Google. You may at any time object to any further collection and storage of your data. You can deactivate the use of cookies by Google by clicking on the page for Deactivation of Google Advertising.

Your rights

You have the right to request information about personal data saved by us which relates to you, the purpose of processing, its origin, to find out what has been transferred to which recipient or the category of recipient, the duration of saving and the data subject’s rights which are available to you from us in written or electronic form free of charge at any time. In addition, you have the right to request the correction of incorrect data, erasure of personal data we have saved about yourself insofar as no justified reasons counteract this, or restriction of data processing at any time. Insofar as such personal data which is necessary for our service provision with regard to yourself is affected by the above, the deletion or restriction of processing of this data can only take place if you no longer use our services or our website. You have the right to submit an objection to data processing which is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) GDPR for reasons which result from your particular situation at any time, unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds which outweigh your interests, or unless such processing serves enforcement, practical execution or defence against legal claims. You can also submit an objection against data processing for the purpose of direct advertising at any time without requiring any particular reasons to do so. Insofar as you provide data which relates to you and we process this data for reasons of your agreement or for contractual fulfilment, you can request that you receive this data in a structured, standard and machine-readable format from us or that we submit this data to another responsible person insofar as this is technically possible (so-called right to data portability). You can freely retract all the agreements declared by yourself concerning use of personal data with effect for the future at any time.
You can also submit complaints to a supervisory body against data-processing by us that, in your opinion, contravenes the statutory requirements. If you wish to enforce the rights we have stated above, please contact us at the contact address we have stated or write to us or our Data Protection Officer by email at datenschutz@gross-partner.de.

Scope of this privacy policy

This privacy policy can, of course, only apply to our website and data processing on servers used by ourselves. It does not include such content or third-party websites which are only linked from our website. This applies, for example, to social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Processing of your personal data via such social networks is then carried out by the relevant operator of the network without us having any influence whatsoever on this processing. This also applies with regard to your personal data which you have transmitted to us via such platforms, for example by writing to our profile in the relevant social network. You can find information about handling your personal data and its protection on these platforms in the privacy policy published by the relevant platform. However, insofar as we receive your personal data which you have transmitted to us via a social network or which we have received from the social network, save it on our own servers or use it for the purpose of processing your enquiries or your requests or for other purposes, our explanations in this privacy policy do, of course, apply.

Revisions to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to check this privacy policy from time to time and to revise it insofar as this is advisable for reasons of new technical developments or changes to the legal situation or in our business operations. We therefore recommend that you read the regulations contained in this data protection declaration from time to time to ensure that you know how we record, process and use your personal data.
