3.1 Data processing on our website

3.1.1 Collection of personal data when visiting our website

When using the website for informational purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser sends to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website and to ensure its stability and security The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO. Data processing records the following data:

-IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, amount of data transferred in each case, website from which the request comes, browser, operating system and its interface, language and version of the browser software.

3.1.2 Contact PRIMUS

Via the contact form, our e-mail address, or by phone you can ask us questions and send us messages. We only process your data in order to contact you in the desired way and to process your request (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit a or b DSGVO).

3.1.3 Dispatch of our newsletter

You can subscribe to our newsletter to receive information about current offers, product news etc. This may also include offers from the PRIMUS Group.

Advertising information will only be sent to your e-mail address as part of our newsletter if you have agreed to the use of your e-mail address. Of course you can revoke your consent to receive newsletters at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the newsletter or by informing us of your wish to unsubscribe via info@primusimmobilien.de.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to register for our newsletter. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. In addition, we store your IP address and the time of registration and confirmation. This enables us to verify your registration and, if necessary, to clarify possible misuse of your personal data by third parties.

Dispatch service provider

The newsletters are sent via the mailing service “MailChimp”, a newsletter mailing platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The data protection regulations of the mail service provider can be viewed here: mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy-Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with the European data protection level (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG&status=Active). The mail service provider will be informed on the basis of our legitimate interests according to art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and an order processing contract pursuant to Art. 28 para. 3 sentence 1 DSGVO.

The mail-order service provider may use the recipient’s data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without allocation to a user, to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimise the dispatch and presentation of newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass the data on to third parties.

3.1.4 Newsletter tracking

In order to better understand how our newsletter is used, we evaluate your user behaviour when the newsletter is sent. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons, also called tracking pixels. These are one-pixel image files that link to our website and thus enable us to evaluate your user behaviour. This is done by using web beacons that are assigned to your e-mail address and linked to your own ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain these.

The data is only collected pseudonymously, the IDs are therefore not linked to your other personal data, and a direct personal reference is excluded.

You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided in every e-mail. Please note that you will then also no longer be able to receive the newsletter. The information will be stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After you unsubscribe, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.

Such tracking is also not possible if you have deactivated the display of images in your e-mail program by default. In this case the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use all functions. If you display the images manually, the above-mentioned tracking will take place.

3.1.5 Other advertising by PRIMUS

If we receive your e-mail address and postal address in connection with an order, we may use this information to inform you by e-mail and by post about our own similar product and service offers from now on. If you do not wish to receive further advertising information by e-mail or post, you can object to the promotional use of your contact data at any time with effect for the future without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. You can send your objection to the following contact addresses.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 a, b and f DSGVO and § 26 BDSG.

3.1.7 How are cookies used on this website?

When you use our website, cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk, assigned to the browser you are using, and through which certain information flows to the site that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet offer altogether more user-friendly and effective. We also use cookies to identify you for subsequent visits, if you have an account with us. Otherwise you would have to log in again for each visit.

This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:

Transient cookies

These cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Persistent cookies

These cookies are automatically deleted after a preset period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

Flash cookies

The Flash cookies used are not collected by your browser, but by your Flash plug-in. We also use HTML5 storage objects, which are stored on your end device. These objects store the required data regardless of the browser you use and do not have an automatic expiration date. If you do not want Flash cookies to be processed, you must install a corresponding add-on, e.g. “Better Privacy” for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe Flash Killer cookie for Google Chrome. You can prevent the use of HTML5 storage objects by setting your browser to private mode. We also recommend that you regularly delete your cookies and browser history manually.

3.1.8 Website analysis

For the purpose of analysing and optimising our websites, we use various services which are described below. For example, we can analyse how many users visit our site, which information is most in demand or how users find the offer. Among other things, we collect data about which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrer), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. This helps us to design and improve our offers in a user-friendly manner. The data collected in the process is not used to identify individual users personally. Highest pseudonymous data are collected. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO. We understand the optimization of our website as a legitimate interest, your basic rights and freedoms do not outweigh our interest, as we inform you comprehensively about the data collection within the framework of our data protection declaration and you have the possibility of an opt-out (via link or browser settings) at any time. Furthermore, we only use pseudonymous tracking.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland). This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus to analyze the activities of a user across devices.

These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

3.1.9 Cookies for marketing purposes

We use cookies for marketing purposes in order to address our users with advertising that is in line with their interests.

The legitimate interest of direct marketing exists for the purposes pursued with the data processing. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data for the purpose of such advertising. For this purpose, we provide you with the following opt-out options for the respective services. Alternatively, you can prevent the setting of cookies in your browser settings.

4. Will my data be transmitted to third parties?

So that PRIMUS can process your data in accordance with the purposes described above, it may be necessary that other recipients can also view and process your data.

4.1 Recipients within the PRIMUS Group

In special cases it may be necessary for us to process your data group-wide. However, data processing within the PRIMUS Group only takes place if we have legal permission to do so. This is the case, for example, if other companies in the PRIMUS Group work for us within the framework of order processing or if there is a justified interest according to Art. 6 Para. 1 f DSGVO.

Further companies of the PRIMUS Group can be found here.

  • Agencies

5. Is my data processed outside the EU and how is data protection ensured?

We attach great importance to processing your data within the EU. However, it may happen that we use service providers who operate outside the EU. In these cases, we will ensure that an adequate level of data protection is established before your personal data is transferred. This means that a level of data protection comparable to the standards within the EU is achieved through EU standard contracts or an adequacy finding, such as the EU Privacy Shield.

6. How long will my data be stored?

We delete personal data of the person concerned as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies and legal retention periods do not prevent deletion.

7. What rights do I have and how can I assert them?

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

This also applies to profiling based on this provision. In the event of your objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

7.3 Direct mail rights

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, in so far as it is connected with such direct marketing, in accordance with Art. 21 para. 2 DPA.
