3. What data pertaining to you do we process and why?

Server log files

When you visit our websites or use our service, the device you are using and the browser with which you access our website automatically transmit log data to our server. This log data includes, in particular, the name of the file (webpage) accessed, the volume of data transmitted, the type and version of the browser used, the operating system used (type and version), the date and time you accessed the site, the referrer URL (website from which you accessed our website via a link) and the IP address of the requesting computer. The IP address is stored in truncated form (anonymised) once it is no longer technically required for accessing the web content.

The automatically transmitted data listed above is collected and evaluated exclusively for the purposes of displaying the information offered correctly, as well as for statistical evaluation purposes. We are unable to associate the data transmitted automatically to the server to any natural person, i.e. in principle, it is not possible to identify you directly using the automatically transmitted data. However, please be aware that with the cooperation of your internet service provider, it is theoretically possible to determine the owner of the internet connection via which you access our website using the IP address transmitted for a specific period. Your internet service provider can provide you with information on the duration for which it stores used and assigned IP addresses.

We process personal data such as name, address, telephone number or email address on this website solely for the purposes of preserving our own legitimate business interests with respect to the care of our investors, interested parties and/or other business partners. Otherwise, we use the data you voluntarily provide exclusively for the purpose for which you provided it to us. We will only use your data in connection with further offers or for marketing purposes if you have consented to such use.

Press mailing list | newsletter

If you subscribe to our email newsletter, we will send you information about our offerings on a regular basis. The only mandatory information you must provide in order to receive our newsletter is your email address. Any other details are provided voluntarily and will be used to enable us to address you personally. We use the double opt-in process when you register for our newsletter. This means that we will only send you an email newsletter once you have expressly confirmed that you consent to our sending you the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation email, in which you will be asked to confirm, by clicking the corresponding link, that you wish to receive the newsletter in future.

When you click the confirmation link, you provide us with your consent for the use of your personal data pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR. When you register for our newsletter, we store the IP address transmitted by your internet service provider as well as the date and time of registration in order to allow us to provide proof of any possible misuse of your email address at a later point. The data we collect when you register for our newsletter is used exclusively for the purposes of advertising communications in the form of the newsletter.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking the link provided in the newsletter or by sending a message to the controller specified above. After you have successfully unsubscribed, your email address will be immediately deleted from our newsletter mailing list unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data or unless we reserve the legally permissible right to process your data for other purposes, about which we inform you in this declaration.

If you use our contact form in the press mailing list to contact us, the data you enter into it will be transmitted in encrypted (SSL) format in order to protect it against improper use by third parties. You can see that the connection is encrypted from the address line of the browser, which will change from “http://” to “https://” and also from the closed padlock symbol in your browser line. Once the SSL encryption is active, the data you transmit to us cannot be viewed by third parties.

Email handling

If you sent an email to KGAL from our website, the message content is cryptographically encrypted. This means that only the recipient can read the message. We will use the email address you provide to respond to you via email with the information you have requested.

If the content of your message pertains to a contractual relationship, we will store the email. Before sending us an unencrypted email via your internet provider, please be aware that the content of the email may not necessarily be protected against unauthorised access, falsification, etc. Please understand that if you send us an email, external service providers that filter emails for us to eliminate spam and malware may have access to your email.

Downloads

Access data is saved whenever you request a file in our download area. Each data set consists of the following: the page from which the file was requested, the name of the file, date and time of the request, the volume of data transmitted, the access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.) and a description of the type of browser used and the IP address.

4. Who will receive your data?

Your requests will be transmitted to the respective responsible department of KGAL. We use selected service providers for the technical and organisational implementation of our website. The extent of the data transmitted to these service providers is limited to the minimum possible. These processors are contractually obliged to process the data received exclusively in accordance with our instructions. Compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation is ensured. This applies with regard to data storage, for example. Our certified processors store the data in secure data centres that are located within the European Union.

6. What services do we use?

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files stored on your computer, to help analyse how you use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your truncated IP address) will be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

This website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIP()” extension, which ensures that IP addresses are anonymised by truncating them, thereby eliminating the possibility that they can be associated directly with any person. The extension ensures that for users located within the European Union or in other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, Google will truncate your IP address before transmitting it. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. In these exceptional cases, this processing is performed for the preservation of our legitimate interests in terms of the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes, in accordance with point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR.

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activities and provide us with additional services connected with your use of the website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, please note that you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent in this case. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data created by the cookie and data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

As an alternative to using the browser plugin or for browsers on mobile devices, please click the following link to install an opt-out cookie, which will prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics via this website in the future (this opt-out cookie will only work in this browser and only for this domain; if you delete your cookies in this browser, you will need to click the link again): Deactivate Google Analytics

Google LLC, headquartered in USA, is certified under the “Privacy Shield” EU-U.S. Data protection agreement, which guarantees compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

In addition – in as far as necessary for the provision of our service – we process personal data that we have permissibly (e.g. due to consent that you have given us) obtained from partners responsible for you or from other third parties (e.g. SCHUFA) or will receive in future (e.g. to execute orders or fulfil contracts, or due to consent you have given us). In addition, we process personal data that we have permissibly obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. land registers, commercial registers, registers associations, the press, the internet, and media), and are permitted to process.

6. Who will receive your data?

Within KGAL, those offices that require your data for the fulfilment of contractual and legal obligations receive access to your data. Service providers, agents, and processors (Article 28 GDPR) used by us may receive data for these specified purposes, if they maintain data protection. These include companies in the categories of real estate management, IT services, telecommunications, collection, advice and consultancy, and address research, among others.

This also applies for the withdrawal of consent declarations that were issued to us before the General Data Protection Regulation came into effect, i.e. before 25 May 2018. Please note that the withdrawal only applies with effect for the future. You have the option of contacting the data protection officer at KGAL Group specified above, or a supervisory authority for data protection, with a complaint.

8. What right of objection are you entitled to?

If we process your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you can object to this processing on grounds that arise based on your particular situation. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we are able to prove mandatory, legitimate grounds for processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

9. How long is your data stored for?

We process and store your personal data for as long as is necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations. In this respect, it must be noted that our business relationship is a continuing obligation developed over the course of years. In addition, we are subject to various retention and documentation obligations arising from the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, HGB) and the German Tax Code (Abgabenordnung, AO), among others. The timeframes stated therein for retention and/or documentation are up to ten years beyond the end of the business relationship and/or the pre-contractual legal relationship. Ultimately, the duration of storage is also assessed in accordance with the legal limitation periods, which are, for example, generally three years in accordance with Sections 195 et seqq. of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, BGB), but in certain cases even up to thirty years.

We erase your personal data as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes stated above. In this process, it may be that personal data is stored for the period during which claims may be established against our company. In addition, we store your personal data in as far as we are legally required to do so. Corresponding obligations regarding documentation and retention arise from the HGB, AO and the Money Laundering Act (Geldwäschegesetz, GwG). The storage periods in accordance with these laws is up to ten years.

10. Is your data transferred to a third country?

Personal data is only transferred to entities in states outside the European Union (EU) and/or the European Economic Area (EEA) (referred to as third countries) in as far as necessary for the handling of your orders (e.g. a payment order sent to a third country). Otherwise, no personal data is transferred to third countries.

In the context of remote maintenance of standard IT components, it cannot be ruled out that – in order to remedy an error – an IT service provider from a third country (such as the USA) will in rare cases be able to view personal data, on a controlled and limited basis. We will inform you separately of details in this respect, in as far as is legally required.

If it is necessary for us to transfer personal data to service providers in third countries, we will only do so in as far as the EU commission has confirmed an appropriate level of data protection, or alternative, appropriate guarantees of data protection (e.g. binding data protection specifications within companies or standard EU contractual clauses) are in place.

11. Are you required to provide data?

In the context of the lease relationship, you are only required to provide personal data that is necessary for the establishment, implementation, and termination of the business relationship, or that we are legally required to capture. Without this data, we will generally have to refuse to conclude the contract or execute the order, or will be unable to continue an existing contract and may need to end it.

12. To what extent is automated decision-making used in individual cases?

In order to enter into and implement the business relationship, as a rule we do not use any automated decision-making pursuant to Article 22 GDPR. If we use these procedures in individual cases, we will inform you of this separately, in as far as is legally required.

13. To what extent will your data be used for profiling?

We do not process your data for the purpose of assessing certain personal aspects on an automated basis.

In individual cases, we process your data in order to safeguard justified interests held by us or third parties (such as public authorities).

Ultimately, the duration of storage is also assessed in accordance with the legal limitation periods, which are, for example, generally three years in accordance with Sections 195 et seqq. of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, BGB), but in certain cases even up to thirty years.

We erase your personal data as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes stated above. In this process, it may be that personal data is stored for the period during which claims may be established against our company. In addition, we store your personal data in as far as we are legally required to do so. Corresponding obligations regarding documentation and retention arise from the HGB, AO and the Money Laundering Act (Geldwäschegesetz, GwG). The storage periods in accordance with these laws is up to ten years.

Your personal data is not transferred to a third country. Third countries are states outside the European Economic Area.

We do not use any automated processing procedures in order to make decisions. This includes profiling.
