2. Why we process personal data

a) When visiting our websites

When you visit our website, your browser automatically sends some personal data (e.g. browser type and version, date and time of access) to our website’s server to establish a connection with our website. These data also include the IP address of your electronic device, which is subsequently stored in a log file and automatically deleted after four weeks.

Your IP address is processed for the technical and administrative purposes of establishing a stable internet connection, to ensure the security and functionality of our websites and to enable us to track any illegal access to our websites.

The legal basis for the processing of your IP address is Article 6.1.f of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As specified above, we have a legitimate interest in the security, stability and functionality of our websites.

b) When subscribing to our newsletters

Once you have subscribed to our newsletter and granted consent in accordance with Article 6.1.a of the GDPR, we will process your email address in order to send you our regular newsletters, including sales prospectuses.

When you register for our newsletter, you are asked, as a minimum, to provide us with your first name, last name and email address. We require this information in order to be able to send you personalized newsletters.

You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, e.g. via the “unsubscribe” link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can also unsubscribe at any time by sending an email to service@david-borck.de.

If you do unsubscribe, we will delete your email address immediately upon receipt of your cancellation of your subscription.

We use certain newsletter marketing tools to analyze the behavior of our newsletter recipients. This analysis includes the open, click, bounce, delivery, unsubscribe, conversion and social sharing rates for each newsletter.

This analysis is carried out in accordance with Article 6.1.f of the GDPR in order to optimize our newsletter. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

c) When using our contact form

You can contact us via the contact form we have integrated into our websites. If you contact us in this way, we will collect the following personal data in order to process your request/enquiry:

– your first and last name

– your contact details (email address and, where necessary, your telephone number)

These contact details may be used to take steps prior to concluding a contract and thus represent pre-contractual measures in accordance with Article 6.1.b of the GDPR.

d) When using our valuation tool

You can use our website’s integrated property valuation tool to have the value of your property assessed by us.  You can access the valuation tool via a pop-up window by clicking on a banner in the header of our website or via our sub-website: https://david-borck.de/real-estate-appraisal.

If you choose to take advantage of our valuation tool, we will collect the following personal data in order to process your request and contact you:

– Type of property (house/apartment/residential or commercial property/land)

– Greeting

– Last name

– Email address

If you would like an even more accurate valuation, you have the option of providing additional details, for example, the size of the property or the year of construction.

These data are processed on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6.1.f of the GDPR. We process these data in order to respond to your valuation request, to determine the value of your property and, if you express an interest, to make you a corresponding offer.

3. How long we store your data

We will delete your personal data as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were provided, unless we are legally entitled or obligated to retain them further.

4. Transferring data to third parties

As a matter of principle, we will not transfer your personal data to third parties. Personal data may only be transferred to third parties insofar as there exists a legal obligation to do so within the meaning of Article 6.1.c of the GDPR.

Insofar as cookies are absolutely necessary to display our website correctly, the processing of your personal data represents a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6.1.f of the GDPR.

When you visit our website, your browser will also create functional cookies, which serve to optimize your interactions with our website.
