Property Magazine International takes the privacy and security of your personal data seriously.

  • You have a right to data portability to a third party.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact: Email: service@property-magazine.eu

Please note that you must read this privacy statement before using one of our websites, services or functions.

Subject of Data Privacy Statement and legal basis
The following gives a simple overview of what happens to your personal information when you are using our website, the mobile application or app – a software application that has been developed to be used on smartphones, tablets or other mobile devices or other applications, software programs, digital media, and storage media. The purpose of our privacy policy is to explain how we collect, process, protect and store personal data. 

When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights under data protection laws. “Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best services and the best and most secure experience. For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant to you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests.

The purpose of the processing of personal data is the handling of all operations which concern the controller, customers, prospective customers, business partners or other contractual or pre-contractual relations between the named groups or legal obligations of the controller. The legal basis for the aforementioned data processing activities is Article 6 Par. 1, lit. a GDPR. Accordingly, data processing is permitted insofar as it is required to realise a legitimate interest and, after comprehensive consideration of interests, does not outweigh your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms. It is our legitimate interest to want to provide you with customised products and to continuously optimise our website and offers. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6 Par. 1 lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 Par. 1 lit. c GDPR.

What data do we collect and why we collect it.

  • Create a customer account: Name, address, email, phone number, job title. Accounts have a numeric User ID assigned to them when they are created. The User ID cannot be changed.
  • Conclusion of a contract: Name, address, email, phone number, job title. Accounts have a numeric User ID assigned to them when they are created. The User ID cannot be changed.
  • Order of an electronic mailing such as our newsletter, the news agent etc. (see also create a customer account). Accounts have a numeric User ID assigned to them when they are created. The User ID cannot be changed.
  • Contact form: Name, email, phone number and matter of concern
  • Server logfiles
  • Cookies
  • Advertisement
  • Profiling
  • IP address

There is no transfer of the data to third parties outside of the Property Magazine International as long as the subscriber does not explicitly agree to this kind of transfer or it was explicitly indicated as outlined above. We may disclose your personal information to the following categories of recipients:

  • to our third party services providers, contractors and partners who provide data processing services to us (for example, financial organisations, website or software provider, credit reference agencies, or who otherwise process personal information for purposes that are described in this Privacy Notice or notified to you when we collect your personal information;
  • to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary as a matter of applicable law or regulation, to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or to protect your vital interests or those of any other person
  • to a potential buyer (and its agents and advisers) in connection with any proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer it must use your personal information only for the purposes disclosed in this Privacy Notice;
  • to any other person with your consent to the disclosure.

If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a corresponding "order processing contract", this is done on the basis of Article 28 GDPR. We will only store personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes they were collected and to fulfill our legal duties to store data otherwise, but no longer than permitted by applicable law. Furthermore, we collect, process and store personal data about our supplies and business partners, including personal data about persons employed with suppliers and business partners. 

Newsletter, alerts, electronic notifications and emails
We will only send you electronic mailings and notifications if this is legally permissible or if you have given your consent. When you are registering e.g. for a newsletter or our news agents, also, when you are sending us an inquiry, you provide your name, form of address, title, e-mail address and postal address, telephone number and by doing so, you consent to our processing of these data. We are using the data and information, and the contributions you transmit to us to send you newsletters, notifications about new articles etc. on products and services,  confirmations of registration and replies or statements to your inquiries or requests, and to be able to process these accordingly.We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties. The registration for the newsletter uses a process known as Double-Opt-In-Process. After registration you will receive an email asking you to confirm you registration. This confirmation is necessary to prevent the log-in with another person’s email address. The data collected for this purpose are the time of confirmation of the registration and the IP address. We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the form only with your consent per Article 6 Par. 1 a GDPR.

You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the electronic mailing at any time, e.g. through the "unsubscribe" link in the email of the mailing. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the customer account) remain unaffected. The newsletter and our notifications contain files the size of a pixel that are downloaded from the server when the corresponding message is opened. In a first step in this interaction, technical information such as browser information, information about your computer, your IP address and the time the message was opened.  The distribution of the newsletter, of notifications about new articles (news agent), reports, confirmations of registration and replies or statements to your inquiries or requests is legally based on your consent in accordance with Article 6 Par. 1 a and Article 7 GDPR. The processing of your personal data is effected in accordance with Article 6 Par. 1 b GDPR. Collections of statistical data and analyses as well as the logging of the registration procedure are our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 Par. 1 f GDPR. 

Contact Form
Customers that email us, or use any of the contact forms on our websites, will have their email address, IP address, and any data provided in the contact form or body of the email stored in our  archives. The legitimate interest is based on Article 6 Par. 1 lit. f GDPR.

We keep all email and chat communication indefinitely to help us provide support and improve our services. Individuals can request copies of any previous correspondence with us at any time.

Revocation
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. Of course, you may revoke your consent at any time. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed. The written revocation (e.g. email, telefax, letter) should be sent to:

In order to rule out misuse, the subscriber may be required to provide proof of his or her identity in individual cases. We will inform the user accordingly.

Security
In order to protect your data against unauthorized access, we have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with Article 32 GDPR. This site uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer)  encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. In doing so, in particular all of the information inputted during the payment process is encrypted.

You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar. If SSL is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Due to the nature of the Internet and related technology, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and we expressly disclaims any such obligation.

Server Logfiles
When our website is viewed, data such as date and time of the processing request, the kind of browser, the browser setting and your operating system, referrer url, the last page visited, the volume of data transmitted and the access status (e.g. file transmitted, file not found etc.) are relayed to us for technical reasons. These data are, as a rule, not personal data. However, the subscriber’s computer usually also transmits its IP address, which in some cases can be personal. The basis for data processing is Article 6 Par.1 f GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

IP Addresses
The IP address, which is relayed to us in many cases (partly explained in more detail below), is a unique identification of the computer, which is valid worldwide and realized by the internet provider at the time of allocation. An IP address is made up of four blocks of numbers that are separated by periods. In most cases, private users’ IP addresses do not stay the same since they are only temporarily allocated by providers (so-called “dynamic IP address”). The provider can track which IP address was assigned to which of its customers at what point in time. As a rule, the assignment of a dynamic IP address to a particular person is not possible for other persons, including us. This is different only for a permanently assigned IP address (so-called “static IP address”), which uses this feature to make a clear assignment of user data possible. Except for the purpose of tracking unauthorized access to our internet offering, we – as a rule – do not analyze these data in relation to an individual person but rather only on an anonymized basis – how many page impressions are made each day, when they are made and similar data.

Cookies
The processing of personal data by cookies based on Article 6 Par. 1 lit. f GDPR.  We use cookies and similar tracking technology (collectively, “Cookies”) to recognise your logged-in state on the site, to enhance your experience, to measure and to control the frequency of the page impressions and the general page navigation. In addition, a set of plug-ins and analytic tools, also use cookies (third-party cookies). These cookies provide reporting to us on an aggregate basis and so, do not identify you at all. Some of sites may also allow third party ad servers to serve their own cookies to display advertising on our web sites. We do not determine, control or have access to their cookies. The advertisements secure the financing of our offer. Thus, our legitimate interest based on Article 6 Par. 1 lit. f GDPR.

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website's server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or to give you personalised experiences. Cookies may also store your IP address or other information about your device. You can accept or reject cookies by amending your web browser controls. Because they’re important, our websites and services might not work like they’re supposed to if you decide to reject our cookies.

We collect other data for individual services that we offer. These data are, in part, used for statistical purposes. For example, we look into how often Property Magazine International is viewed in order to establish a basis for our media data. We do not rule out integrating plug-ins (or add-ons – these terms are used interchangeably) such as Facebook or Twitter into our offering. The information collected by these third parties, which may include location information or contact information, is governed by the privacy practices of each company. We therefore recommend that you check with these companies for their privacy practices.

Profiling - what do we mean?
We may analyse your browsing and clicks on our website  to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can

  • present you topics relevant to you,
  • personalise our services and to tailor content. 

Sharing Tools - Facebook and Twitter plug-ins
You will also see embedded ‘share’ buttons (Plug-ins/add-ons) on certain web pages such as article pages. These enable users to easily share content with their friends through a number of popular social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.  Plug-ins are offers from third-party contractors such as e.g. Facebook. They set cookies and create links to these providers. In some cases, only data on browser behavior are relayed. However, when a user actively uses a plug-in (e.g. as part of a Google profile), this information is also transmitted.

Our offering may at some point contain plug-ins from the social network, Facebook.  These plug-ins are offerings of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The plug-ins can be recognized based on the Facebook logo and/or the phrase “Like”. If a page with this kind of plug-in is called up, the internet browser creates a direct link with the servers of Facebook Inc. In the process, the content of the plug-ins is relayed to the internet browser, which then integrates it into the page shown. In doing so, the information that the website was visited is relayed. If the user is logged into a personal Facebook user account when the page is called up, Facebook Inc. associates the visit to the website with this user account. When a user uses the plug-in, for example, by clicking the “Like” button, this information is relayed directly to Facebook Inc. and saved there. 

A user can prevent this kind of data transfer by logging out of the Facebook user account before viewing our products. The active use of a plug-in is subject to the data protection conditions and conditions of use of Facebook Inc. (https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy)

Moreover, you can delete or block the cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended. The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. 

With Twitter and the re-Tweet functions, plug-ins from twitter.com, an offering of Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA are used. When a user uses the re-Tweet functions, the pages he or she visited are made public to third parties and linked to his or her Twitter account. The active use of a plug-in is subject to the data protection conditions and conditions of use of Twitter (https://twitter.com/de/privacy). 

Moreover, you can delete or block the cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended. The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. 

Online behavioural advertising
A certain amount of advertising found on our website is tailored to the individual user. We use cookies to work out what advertising might be most relevant to you based on your browsing behaviour and your IP address geo-location. Our legitimate interest based on the financing of our offer, the data is thus based on Article 6 Par. 1 lit. f processed.

Embedded Maps
To support our journalism, we sometimes embed maps from Google Maps (Article 6 Par. 1 lit. f.).

Google Analytics
We use occasionally an analysis tool. For our work, it is important for us to see the reach of our offering in order to have direct feedback on our services. performance.

Our offering uses occasionally Google Analytics, a web-based analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text data which are saved by a computer and which allow for an analysis of the use of the website by the user. Thus Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Article 6 Par. 1 f. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising. 

The information generated by the cookie on what we provide online is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, if the IP anonymization is activated on our pages, the user’s IP address is abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the entire IP address relayed to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google uses this information to analyze the use of our offering in order to compile reports on website activities and in order to generate other services relating to the use of the website and internet use for the website operator. The browser’s IP address, which is used by Google Analytics, is not merged with other Google data. 

Information about the third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. For more information about how Google Analytics handles user data, see Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
