DATA PROTECTION

Scope

The user will make this data protection declaration about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the competent service provider [IREBS Immobilienakademie, Barocketage Kloster Eberbach, 65346 Eltville, irebs@irebs.de, Tel. 06723 9950-30] on this website (referred to as the "site" below).

The legal principles for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and in the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Access data / server log files

The service provider (or its web space provider) collects data about any access to the site (server log files). The access data includes:

Name of the retrieved web page, file, data and time of retrieval, data quantity transferred, notification about successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the page visited previously), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider will only use the log data for statistical evaluations for the purposes of the operation, security and improvement of the services offered. However, the provider reserves the right to review log data subsequently if there are specific clues to warrant the suspicion of unlawful use.

Dealing with personal data

Personal data is information which can be used to identify a person, i.e. details which can be traced back to a person. This personal data includes the name, e-mail address or phone number, as well as data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or the websites viewed by that person.

Personal data is only collected, used and shared by the provider if this is permitted by law, or if the users give their permission for the data to be collected.

Establishing contact

When contact is established with the provider (for instance, using the contact form or e-mail), the user's details will be saved for the purposes of processing the request or in the event of there being follow-up queries.

Newsletter

We will keep you informed about us and about the services we offer through the newsletter.

If you wish to receive the newsletter, we will require a valid e-mail address from you, as well as information which will enable us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address indicated or that the owner of that address is in agreement with receipt of the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. This data will only be used for circulating newsletters and will not be shared with third parties.

When you register to receive the newsletter, we will save your IP address and the date of registration. Saving these details alone will serve as evidence that a third party has misused an e-mail address and has registered to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorised person.

You may cancel your permission for the data and e-mail address to be saved, as well as for it to be used for the circulation of the newsletter at any time. This cancellation may be actioned via a link in the actual newsletters, in your profile or by notifying the contacts above.

 

Integration of 3th-party service

Third-party content may be integrated within this online service, such as YouTube videos, Google maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (referred to below as "third-party providers") take note of the IP addresses of users. Without the IP address, they would be unable to send the content to the user's browser. Consequently, the IP address is necessary for viewing this content. We will endeavour only to use content from providers which only use IP addresses for the delivery of content. However, if third-party providers save the IP address for statistical purposes, for instance, this will be beyond our control. If we are aware of this, we will advise users accordingly.

Cookies

Cookies are small files which enable specific device-related information to be saved on the target device of the users (PC, smartphone, etc.). Firstly, it will serve to make websites more user-friendly and thus be to the benefit of users (for instance, saving their login data). Secondly, it will be used to record the statistical data for website use and for the purposes of analysing it to improve the services offered. The users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option for restricting or completely preventing cookies being saved. However, you are advised that usage and, in particular, functional convenience are restricted without cookies.

You can manage many online view cookies for companies via the US website www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU website www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/.

PIWIK

This service uses Piwik, open-source software for the statistical evaluation of user access. Piwik uses 'cookies', which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the website is transmitted to and stored on the provider's server in Germany. The IP address will be anonymised immediately after processing and before its storage. Users may prevent the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, the provider advises the users that they may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Use of facebook social plugins

This site uses social plugins ("plugins") on the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). The plugins are indicated by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile, the word "Like" or a "thumbs up" icon) or with the extension "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins are available to view here: developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

If a user calls up a website from here containing any such plugin, its browser will connect directly to the servers at Facebook. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser from Facebook and will be integrated into the website by the browser. Therefore, the provider does not have any control over the scope of data which Facebook collects using this plugin and, therefore, advises users accordingly on the basis of what it knows:

The integration of the plugin enables Facebook to obtain information that the user has retrieved a particular page on the website. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can find details of the visit to his or her Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for instance click the Like button or leave a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to Facebook from their browser and it is stored there. If a user is not registered on Facebook, Facebook can still learn and save his or her IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is saved in Germany.

Details of the purpose and scope of data collection and of the processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as of the associated rights and possible settings to protect the privacy of users can be found in the data protection notes in Facebook: www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is registered on Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him or her through this website and does not want the visit to be linked to any of his or her member data saved on Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for publicity purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: www.facebook.com/settings.

+1 Button in Google+

This site uses the "+1" button for the Google Plus social network, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The button is indicated by the characters "+1" against a white or coloured background.

If a user calls up a website from here containing any such plugin, its browser will connect directly to the servers at Google. The content of the "+1" button plugin is transmitted directly to his or her browser from Google and will be integrated into the website by the browser. Therefore, the provider does not have any control over the scope of data which Google collects using this button. According to Google, no personal data is collected unless the button is clicked. This data, among other things the IP address, is only collected from members who are logged in and processed.

Details of the purpose and scope of data collection and of the processing and use of data by Google, as well as of the associated rights and possible settings to protect privacy can be found by Google users in the data protection notes about the "+1" button: www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html and the FAQ: www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/.

TWITTER

This site uses Twitter buttons. These buttons are provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are indicated by words like "Twitter" or "Follow", associated with a stylised blue bird. These buttons allow you to share a contribution or page from this website on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.

If a user calls up a website from here containing any such plugin, its browser will connect directly to the servers at Twitter. The content of the Twitter button is transmitted directly to the user's browser from Twitter. Therefore, the provider does not have any control over the scope of data which Twitter collects using this plugin and, therefore, advises users accordingly on the basis of what it knows. According to it, only the user's IP address is transmitted to the website URL when the button is actioned; it is not used for any purpose other than for the display of the button.

You can find further information about this in the data privacy statement from Twitter at twitter.com/privacy.

Cancellation, changes, correction

On request, the user will be entitled to obtain information free of charge about the personal data which is saved relating to him or her. In addition, the user will be entitled to correct inaccuracies, block and delete his or her personal data, provided this is not in breach of any statutory duty of retention.
