Data Protection Statement


This website is provided by d.i.i. 14. Neubau C GmbH, c/o d.i.i. Investment GmbH, represented by its managing director Frank Wojtalewicz, Biebricher Allee 2, 65187 Wiesbaden/Germany, e-mail: info@dii.de (“d.i.i. Deutsche Investment GmbH” or “We”). We are the party responsible for the processing of your personal data in conjunction with your use of this website within the meaning of Art. 4, Sec. 7, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (German Data Protection Regulation – “GDPR”).

  1. Information Regarding the Collection of Personal Data

The subsequent information briefs you on the collection of your personal data when using our website. The term “personal data” covers any data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour.

When you contact us, the data you disclose (your e-mail address, name and telephone number, where applicable) will be stored by us to answer your questions. As soon as their storage is no longer necessary, we will either delete the data collected to this end, or will restrict the processing of such data if they need to be retained due to legal hold obligations.

To the extent that we use contracted service providers to fulfil certain functions of our offer, or plan to use your data for advertising purposes, you will find the respective processes detailed below. You will also find the set criteria governing the storage duration detailed.

  1. Your Rights

2.1 You have the following rights in regard to personal data concerning you:

–    the right to access (Art. 15, GDPR),
– the right to rectification or deletion (Art. 16, 17, GDPR),
– the right to restriction of processing (Art. 18, GDPR),
– the right to data portability (Art. 20, GDPR),
– the right to object to processing (Art. 21, GDPR).

2.2 To the extent that our processing of your personal data is consent-based (Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter a, GDPR), you may revoke your consent at any time; the legality of the data processing carried out on the basis of your consent until you revoke it remains unaffected.

2.3. To assert any or all of these rights as well as to ask further questions on the subject of personal data, you may contact our data protection officer (datenschutz@dii.de) or contact us via our e-mail or postal address provided at the top of this Data Protection Statement at any time.

You also have the right to complain to a data protection regulator about the processing of your personal data by us if you believe that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the GDPR or other applicable data protection laws (Art. 77, GDPR, Art. 19, German Data Protection Act – “BDSG”).

  1. Collection of Personal Data during Your Visit to Our Website

3.1. Whenever you visit our website, our server will automatically save the following data in so-called log files: Browser type and version; operating system; internet service provider; IP address; date and time of your access; website from which you access our website (“referrer URL”); the web pages of our website that you visit.

We process such data to ensure the proper functioning of our website, to optimise our website, to document your actions on our website (e.g. confirming a reservation) in a legally secure and traceable manner, and to ensure the stability and security of our systems.

These purposes constitute our legitimate interest in the processing of your data; their legal basis being Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter f, GDPR. The log files will be deleted at the end of the respective browser session or after seven days at the latest, unless their continued storage is necessary for any of the above-mentioned purposes.

3.2 Use of Our Website Services
Moreover, we process personal data that we receive from you in the course of our business relationship, if any. The legal basis for this is Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sent. 1, Letter a, GDPR. For example, we process the personal data that you voluntarily submit to us on our website: when you sign up for our newsletter (see Item 3.1), or when you send us a request for information via e-mail or by using our contact forms (e.g. to schedule a consultation appointment). We process all these data exclusively for the intended purpose or within the framework of effective data protection legislation.

  1. Processing Purpose

Why do we process your data, and on what legal basis?

We process personal data in compliance with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG):

4.1 To Fulfil Contractual Obligations (Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter b, GDPR)
The processing of personal data (Art. 4, No. 2, GDPR) is carried out for the purpose of providing the services offered on our website, of processing estate agency contracts, marketing contracts or other contracts concluded with you for the initiation of a property acquisitions, of invoicing, of carrying out pre-contractual measures, and of answering your requests for information in connection with our business relationship.
For more details regarding the data processing purposes, please see the respective contract documents and the respective terms and conditions.

4.2 In conjunction with the Balancing of Interests (Art. 6, Sec. 1, GDPR)
To the extent necessary, we will process your data over and above the actual fulfilment of the contract for the purpose of serving our own legitimate interests or those of third parties, such as in the following cases:

– answering your inquiries outside of a contract or pre-contractual measures (e.g. via e-mail or using our website’s contact form);
– advertising or market research and polling, unless you objected to such use of your data;
– the operation and optimisation of the website;
– the use of cookies pursuant to Section 6, below;
– the assertion of legal claims and defence in legal disputes;
– ensuring the proper functioning of our IT security and IT operations;
– preventing and investigating criminal offences.

4.3 Based on Your Consent (Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter a, GDPR)
If you have given us permission to process your personal data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of such processing is based on your consent. You may revoke your consent any time. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Any processing done prior to the revocation is not affected.

4.4 In Accordance with Statutory Requirements (Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter c, GDPR)
Moreover, we are subject to various legal obligations, meaning legal requirements. The purposes of the processing include the observation of retention periods under applicable commercial and fiscal laws.

  1. Direct Marketing

5.1 Marketing via E-Mail, Phone or Text Messages
Assuming your consent, we will regularly notify you via e-mail, phone or text messages about d.i.i. Investment GmbH, its latest offers and building projects that we market. To this end, we will use your name, your e-mail address, and your phone number, as the case may be. Legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter a, GDPR. You may revoke your consent any time, e.g. by clicking the dedicated link at the bottom of each e-mail or by sending an e-mail to datenschutz@dii.de to that effect. The legitimacy of any processing carried out on the basis of your consent prior to your revocation of it remains unaffected by this.

5.1.1. Special Aspects of E-Mail Advertising (Newsletter):
Our newsletter will be e-mailed to you only with your express prior consent in accordance with the double opt-in principle: After registering for the newsletter on our website, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration for our newsletter. This is to ensure that no third party makes improper use of your data.

If you revoke your consent, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list and placed on a blocked-recipient list. The legitimacy of any processing carried out on the basis of your consent prior to your revocation of it remains unaffected by this.

5.1.2. Newsletter-Tracking
In conjunction with your registration for the newsletter, we also obtain your consent to newsletter tracking for the purpose of personalised advertising and market research by d.i.i. Investment GmbH. Using so-called tracking pixels or web beacons and links, each of which are linked to an individual ID, we collect the following personal tracking information in connection with the use of our newsletter:

– opening the newsletter, clicking on the links it contains, submitting a form on our website after clicking on a link the newsletter contains (together with the time of your actions)
– the type of endpoint used when retrieving images in the newsletter or clicking on links
– your behaviour on our website when you access it via a link from our newsletter (together with the time of your actions)
– the place of retrieval when you retrieve images in the newsletter or click on links (by assigning your IP address, which we do not store, though)

We save these data with your user profile, which is assigned to the data you entered when you registered for the newsletter. We use such data to evaluate and optimise our e-mail marketing efforts, and for purposes of personalised advertising and market research. This enables us to send you, in the context of our newsletter, personal information on products, services and specials that are of particular interest to you.

You may revoke your consent to this sort of data processing by unsubscribing from our newsletter. Disabling the newsletter tracking without unsubscribing is not technically possible (at this time). We will delete your tracking data once you unsubscribe our newsletter. This will not affect data we stored for other purposes.

5.1.3. Newsletter Dispatch and Analysis by MailChimp
Our newsletter is dispatched via MailChimp, a service provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (“MailChimp”). The data processed in the context of dispatching and analysing the e-mails are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the United States. MailChimp uses this information for the purpose of dispatching and analysing the newsletter on our behalf. MailChimp may, at its own discretion, use this data to optimise or improve its own services; this may be for the purpose of technically optimising the dispatch and presentation of the newsletters or for the purpose of determine its recipients’ countries of origin. MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them on its own, nor does it pass them on to third parties. The transfer of your information to a third country outside the EU is covered by an Adequacy Decision of the European Commission within the meaning of Art. 45, GDPR, because MailChimp is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework). MailChimp acts as a commissioned data processor within the meaning of Art. 28, GDPR, a corresponding commissioned data processing agreement (“Data-Processing-Agreement”) with MailChimp being in place. In this context, we would like to point out that so-called cookies are used on the websites of MailChimp, and that personal data are therefore processed by MailChimp, its partners and service providers (e.g. Google Analytics). This data collection is outside our control.

For more details, check the privacy policy of MailChimp (https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/).

5.2 Current Customer Advertising
Once you took advantage of paid (estate agency) services from d.i.i. Investment GmbH, we may notify you about similar services available from d.i.i. Investment GmbH from time to time unless you previously objected to it.

Legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter f, GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to engage in direct advertising (Recital 47, GDPR).

You may object to the use of your e-mail and postal address for advertising purposes any time and at no additional cost, for example by using the link at the bottom of each e-mail or by sending an e-mail to that effect at datenschutz@dii.de.

  1. Cookies

In addition to the afore-mentioned data, so-called “cookies” will be stored on your computer when you use our website. These cookies represent small text files that are stored on your hard drive and assigned to the browser you use, and that feed certain information back to the site that placed a given cookie (in this case, back to us). Cookies cannot run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They help to make the Internet offer generally more user-friendly and more effective.

The cookies we use to collect your data exclusively use pseudonyms. You can discontinue the use of cookies any time by adjusting your Internet browser settings so that it will not accept new cookies or notify you of any new cookies. You can also use the settings of your Internet browser to delete cookies already placed on your endpoint. Assistance with the changing of your cookie settings is provided e.g. by the help function of your Internet browser. For more information on the subject or on cookies in general, go to pages like http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/ or http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ge/. Please note that you will not be able to use certain features of our website unless you accept cookies. The cookies used by our website include technically required cookies, web analysis cookies and tracking cookies for advertising purposes:

6.1 Technically Required Cookies
Most of the cookies we use are required for technical reasons so as to enable you to use our website and the services it offers (e.g. secure login, temporary storage of your registration form data during your registration or when engaging in other activities on our website) (“session cookies”). These purposes constitute our legitimate interest in the processing of your data; their legal basis being Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter f, GDPR. The data will not be merged with other personal data and will not be used for advertising purposes. Session cookies are deleted after the end of the respective browser session, but in no case later than seven days thereafter.

6.2 Web Analysis Cookies (Google Analytics)
We also use cookies to create pseudonymous use profiles for web analysis purposes. These cookies enable us to recognise returning users (device owners), to analyse their behaviour on our website, to optimise our website and measure its reach. Legal basis for this sort of data processing is your consent (Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter a, GDPR). We do not merge the data with other personal data and we do not use it to personally engage individual users for advertising purposes. The web analysis cookies are deleted after 24 months at the latest or once you object to the data processing beforehand pursuant to Art. 21, GDPR.

  1. Use of Analysis Tools


7.1. Google Analytics
This website uses the Google Analytics web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies that are placed on your computer to help us analyse how you are using our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer (IP address), date and time of the server request) is usually transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. In the event that IP anonymisation is enabled, Google will truncate your IP address in advance within any member state of the European Union or within any other member state of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional situations will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for the website operator and providing other services relating to the use of the website and of the Internet. The IP address submitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google.

We expanded Google Analytics on our website to include the code “anonymizeIp()” in order to guarantee the anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called “IP masking”). Your IP address will therefore be processed by Google in a truncated form within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area; which rules out personal identification. To the extent that the data collected about you is personal, it will be excluded immediately and, by doing so, the personal data will be promptly deleted. The transfer of your information to a third country outside the EU is covered by an Adequacy Decision of the European Commission (C/2016/4176 dated 12 July 2016 – http://data.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2016/1250/oj) within the meaning of Art. 45, GDPR, because Google has agreed to comply with the principles of the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework).

On behalf of d.i.i. Investment GmbH, Google in its role as commissioned data processor within the meaning of Art. 28, GDPR, will use this information for the purpose of analysing your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for the website operator and providing other services relating to the uses of this website in particular and of the Internet in general. The IP address submitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google.

7.2. Google Optimize
We also use the Google Optimize tool integrated in Google Analytics to conduct experiments (A/B tests, multivariate and forwarding tests) on our website. To this end, Google Optimize analyses the use of different variants of our website and helps us to improve the usability in line with users’ actual behaviour on our website. Google Optimize is a tool integrated in Google Analytics.

7.3 Tracking Cookies for Advertising Purposes
Moreover, we use tracking cookies for use-based online advertising purposes. These tracking cookies record your behaviour on our website (IP address; user ID; date and time; title and URL of the pages visited; referrer URL; resolution of your screen; time in your time zone; files accessed and downloaded; clicks on links referring to other websites; time required for the page to load fully; the city from which you visit our website; language settings, name and version of your browser) in pseudonymous use profiles. We use this information to present advertisements on our website and the websites of third parties that are part of our advertising network to you that are optimised to match your interests. If you have subscribed to our newsletter, we merge the data with your user profile, and use it for advertising purposes to send you personalised information on products, services and offers of specific interest to you via our newsletter. You benefit from this because, by engaging you in a pinpoint manner, we are reducing your overall exposure to advertising not attuned to your interests.

You consent to this sort of tracking for advertising purposes by using our website. You are expressly notified of the fact at the beginning of your visit to our website via our cookie banner.

Legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter a, GDPR. You may revoke your consent any time by clicking here. The legitimacy of any processing carried out on the basis of your consent prior to your revocation of it remains unaffected by this.

The tracking cookies are deleted after 24 months at the latest or at an earlier time if you revoke your consent.

Assuming you consented to their usage on our website, we use the following tracking cookies (and tracking pixels) for advertising purposes:

7.3.1 Google AdWords with Conversion Tracking
Our website uses the online advertising service Google Adwords, including its conversion tracking function, provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

We use the service in order to display ads on the results page of a Google search or on a website of the Google advertising network (so-called “AdWords”). The reason for doing so is to draw your attention to our offers. Conversion tracking enables us to measure how successful our individual advertising measures are, based on certain parameters (e.g. display of ads or clicks by the user).

When you click on a Google-placed ad, Google will save a conversion tracking cookie on your computer. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For cookies of this type, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (a mark saying that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

These cookies enable Google to recognise your Internet browser the next time you visit. If you visit certain pages of an Adwords client’s website and the cookie stored on your computer has not yet expired, Google and the client will recognise that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to the respective website. For this purpose, each Adwords client is assigned a separate cookie. This means that cookies cannot be traced via the websites of Adwords clients. We collect and process no personal data in our own right when using Google AdWords. Google only provides us with statistical analyses of the total number of users who clicked on an ad and were redirected to a website marked with a conversion tracking tag. The evaluations show us which of the advertising measures that we employed performed better than others. We do not receive any further data gathered from the use of advertising material; in particular, we have no way to identify users on the basis of this information.

Due to the nature of the technologies used, your browser will automatically set up a direct connection to the Google server in the United States. The transfer of your information to a third country outside the EU is covered by an Adequacy Decision of the European Commission within the meaning of Art. 45, GDPR, because Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework). We have no influence on the scope of data processing, and therefore inform you to the best of our knowledge: By integrating AdWords with conversion tracking, Google receives information that you accessed the corresponding page of our website or clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate the data with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or are not signed in, there is a chance that Google may obtain and save your IP address.

You can keep from participating in this tracking procedure by adjusting certain settings in your browser accordingly (especially by disabling third-party cookies) or by setting your browser up to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com (https://www.google.de/settings/ads), although you should note that this setting will also be deleted once you delete your cookies. You can also disable personalised ads from the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads” (http://www.aboutads.info/choices), although you should note that this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies. You can also permanently disable personalised advertisements at http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin in your browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome). Please note, however, that you may not be able to use all features of this Internet presentation as a result of doing so. For more information on the data processing within the framework of Google AdWords, go to http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy.

7.3.2 Google Tag Manager
Our website uses the Google Tag Manager. Using this service enables us to manage website tags via an interface. The Google Tool Manager merely implements tags. This means: No cookies are used, and no personal data are captured. That said, the Google Tool Manager triggers other tags which in turn may possibly capture data. But the Google Tag Manage will not access such data. Disabling the function either on the domain level or the cookie level will disable all tracking tags that are implemented by the Google Tag Manager.

7.3.3 Facebook Retargeting (Facebook Custom Audiences)
Our website uses the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function of Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Facebook”). The purpose of the function is to present users of our website with advertisements based on their actual interests (“Facebook Ads”) whenever they visit Facebook’s social network or other websites that also use the function. The idea is to bring you advertisements specifically of interest to you, and thereby to make our website more interesting to you.

Due to the nature of the marketing tools used (Facebook tracking pixel), your browser will automatically set up a direct connection to the Facebook server. We have no influence on the scope and downstream use of the data collected by Facebook through this tool, and can therefore only share information to the best of our knowledge: Integrating the Facebook Custom Audiences function will tell Facebook that you accessed the corresponding pages of our website or clicked on one of our ads. Facebook will receive analogous information whenever you visit the websites of third parties that also contain a Facebook tracking pixel. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can associate your visit with your account. Even if you have no Facebook account or if you are not signed in to Facebook, there is a chance that the provider may obtain and save your IP address along with other identification characteristics.

The transfer of your information to a third country outside the EU is covered by an Adequacy Decision of the European Commission (C/2016/4176 dated 12 July 2016 – http://data.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2016/1250/oj) within the meaning of Art. 45, GDPR, because Facebook has agreed to comply with the principles of the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework). We do not get access to this tracking data (except in aggregated form), and so you remain anonymous to us.

You have the option to disable the “Facebook Custom Audiences” function here, and signed-in users at https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. If Facebook uses retargeting cookies, you can disable the placement of cookies in your browser or at http://www.aboutads.info/choices. For more details on data processing by Facebook, go to https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

7.3.4 LinkedIn Insight Tag
Our website uses the conversion tracking and retargeting technologies of social media provider LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (“LinkedIn”) to measure and optimise the results of d.i.i. Investment GmbH’s advertising campaigns on LinkedIn and to re-target visitors to our website with ads on LinkedIn or other websites.

Whenever you visit our website, your browser will use a tracking pixel (LinkedIn Insight tag) to connect directly to LinkedIn’s servers. LinkedIn stores a third-party cookie in your browser and collects and stores your IP address and use pattern on our site and other sites that contain a LinkedIn tracking pixel – even if you are not a member or signed out. If you are (or become) a member of LinkedIn, then LinkedIn may merge this tracking information with your account, analyse it, and use it for targeted advertising – on behalf of us or other advertisers – on LinkedIn or other websites (unless you objected to such targeted and interest-based advertising in your account privacy settings).

The information may also be transferred to the servers of LinkedIn in the United States (LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, USA). The transfer of your information to a third country outside the EU is covered by an Adequacy Decision of the European Commission within the meaning of Art. 45, GDPR, because LinkedIn Corporation has agreed to comply with the principles of the EU-US Privacy Shield.

We do not get access to this tracking data (except in aggregated form), and so you remain anonymous to us. Please note that we have no influence on, or knowledge of, the ways in which LinkedIn processes your information.

You can disable targeted and interest-based advertising by LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/62931?lang=en or – in case you have no LinkedIn account – https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls). For more information about the use of personal information for advertising purposes, please see the LinkedIn Privacy Policy (https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy).

  1. Zapier

We use the Zapier service provided by Zapier Inc., 548 Market St #62411, San Francisco, California 94104, USA (“Zapier”) in order to link various applications and databases with each other. In the context of providing the service, Zapier may access the contact details of our current or prospective customers.

Zapier processes these data for us as a commissioned data processor within the meaning of Art. 28, GDPR, exclusively in accordance with our instructions (and not for Zapier’s or any third party’s own purposes). The data processing by Zapier in a third country outside the EU is covered by an Adequacy Decision of the European Commission within the meaning of Art. 45, GDPR, because Zapier has agreed to comply with the principles of the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework). For more details on Zapier’s privacy policy, go to https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

  1. Google Maps

Via an API, our website uses the Google Maps service provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”). The service enables us to display interactive maps directly on our website and lets you use the map function at your convenience.

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you loaded the corresponding page of our website. Moreover, additional data will be transferred to Google servers in the United States. This happens regardless of whether you have a user account with Google or are signed in to your Google account. If you are signed into a Google service, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want Google to associate the data with your profile, you should sign out of your Google account before visiting our website. Google stores the data collected about you in the form of a user profile and uses it for advertising purposes, market research and/or the need-based design of its website. This sort of analysis takes place (even for users not logged in) specifically for the representation of demand-oriented advertisements and to notify other Google users of your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, but you will have to assert it vis-à-vis Google. We have no influence on the data transmission and data processing by Google.

For more information on the purpose and scope of the data processing by Google, see Google’s privacy policy (http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy). If you do, Google will also provide more details about your rights and privacy settings. The transfer of your information to a third country outside the EU is covered by an Adequacy Decision of the European Commission within the meaning of Art. 45, GDPR, because Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework). By using the functions of Google Maps embedded in this website, you consent to the recording, processing and use of the automatically collected data, as well as of the data you entered, by Google, by one of its representatives or by third parties in accordance with the terms of use for Google Maps (https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html) and in accordance with the privacy policy of Google (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de). Legal basis for the data processing by Google is Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter a, GDPR.

We collect and store no data whatsoever in connection with your use of the Google Maps functions embedded in our website.

  1. Access to Your Data

At d.i.i. Investment GmbH, in-house access to your data is granted to those units that require the data to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations. Data processors commissioned by us (Art. 28, GDPR) may also receive data for the afore-mentioned purposes. In addition to the processors expressly mentioned in this Data Protection Statement, this includes companies of the categories IT services, subcontractors for estate agency services, logistics, printing and shipping services, telecommunications, collection agencies, sales, consulting and marketing.

We will disclose your personal data to third parties to the extent necessary to fulfil any contractual relationship existing between you and d.i.i. Investment GmbH or to carry out pre-contractual measures (Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter b, GDPR) or to pursue legitimate interests (Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter f, GDPR). We only disclose the information that the respective service providers or partners need in order to fulfil the tasks assigned to them. Such service providers or partners are obliged to treat the data confidentially in accordance with this Data Protection Statement and relevant data protection laws, and not to disclose them to third parties.

In addition, your personal data will be disclosed or transmitted whenever doing so is required by law (Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter c, GDPR) or if you consented to it (Art. 6, Sec. 1, Sub-Sec. 1, Letter a, GDPR). With this in mind, recipients of personal data may, for instance, include:

– sub-contractors hired by d.i.i. Investment GmbH to perform the services offered on our website (e.g. estate agents or IT service providers contracted by d.i.i. Investment GmbH).

– developers or estate agents handling a given project whenever you inquired about developer projects and d.i.i. Investment GmbH passes on the data you disclosed in your request for information if such disclosure is necessary to respond to your inquiry and/or if it is necessary for, or conducive to, the performance of pre-contractual measures.

– financial institutions for collecting charges.

– government authorities or public institutions whenever statutory requirements or official regulations come into play.

  1. Data Retention Period

To the extent necessary, we will process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which includes, for instance, the initiation and execution of a contract, among other things. It should be noted in this context that our business relationship is a continuing obligation which—until you unregister from our website—is set up to last for years.

In addition, we are subject to various retention and documentation obligations arising from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the Fiscal Code of Germany (AO). The periods of retention or documentation specified therein are six years for correspondence in connection with the conclusion of contracts and ten years for accounting records (Articles 238, 257, Sec. 1 and 4, HGB, Art. 147, Sec. 1 and 3, AO). Retention and documentation obligations of this type exist in particular if you conclude a contract with us (e.g. estate agent’s contract, sales partnership agreement, marketing agreement, registration on our Internet portal www.dii.de or any other website operated by d.i.i.
