3 Fundamentals

Of course, you can visit our website and use our offer without us collecting personal information beyond what is necessary for the operation of the website. This technically required data includes, for example, communication data such as the IP address.

The provision of further personal data for services offered on our website is always on a voluntary basis (for example, name, address or email address, other contact information or is individual data that you provide us with in the context of a property search). This data is used to provide the services requested by you. You alone decide whether you want to voluntarily disclose this information to us, for example in the context of a registration, inquiry or similar. For the use of individual functions, we therefore also ask for your express, voluntary and always revocable consent.

You are not required to provide your personal information. If you do not provide us with individual personal data, not all features of our website may be available to you.

The collection, storage and other processing of your information is only for the purposes for which you have communicated the relevant data to us, e.g. to answer your contact request by email. If you would like to use our call back service, we also need your telephone number.

In addition, our web server temporarily stores information that is not assigned to a particular person. We use this information to determine the attractiveness of our website and to improve its content. This data will be deleted after your visit, unless they are needed to investigate abuses, the injection of malware or similar reasons.

For registration or logging into our internal area, you will receive login data that is not personalized and does not allow any conclusions about your person. The data processing associated with a registration or logging-in ensures that only authorized persons gain access to the corresponding areas.

4 Disclosure of your data

A transfer of your data to third parties outside the GSG Group shall not take place without your express consent. For internal administrative purposes, your data may also be passed on to companies belonging to the GSG Group.

5 Newsletter

As a tenant of GSG Berlin you have the opportunity to subscribe to our free newsletter. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you will receive regular information about products, offers and promotions. After subscribing to the newsletter, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your subscription to the newsletter. This ensures by means of the so-called “double opt-in principle” that no third party has misused your data. A service provider acting on our behalf as a data processing company and complying with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation carries out the provision and administration of our newsletter.

You can also unsubscribe from our newsletter directly via our newsletter. Further information can be found in the respective newsletter.

Storage beyond this only takes place insofar as this is provided for in law and other legally binding legal provisions.
