1. Processing on the website
Collection and processing of personal data to display the website and to ensure its stability and security (especially server log files)
We process our users’ personal data as far as this is necessary to provide a functional, stable and secure website. In particular, we automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. In this context the following data, which is required for technical use only, will be processed during the informational use of the website:
- IP address of the terminal device you are using;
- Date and time of access / server request;
- Screen resolution;
- The browser type, version and operating system you are using;
- Host name of the requesting computer /Referrer URL.
The storage is only temporary, the server log files are erased after 14 days.
The processing of the aforementioned data takes place to protect legitimate interests (the functionality, stability and security of our website) on the basis of a balancing of interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 (f) of the GDPR.
The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in the log files is essential for the operation of our website.
Usage of PHP session cookies
We use so-called session cookies (also called non-persistent or transient cookies) on our website. Cookies are small text files that our web server sends to your device, where they are usually stored on your hard drive. They do not become part of your system and cannot cause any damage. These session cookies are stored exclusively for the duration of your use of our website. The session cookies we use are only used to identify you while you are logged on to our website. At the end of each session the session cookies are deleted. There is no further use of the session cookies.
These cookies are essential for the function of our website and cannot be deactivated in our systems. Usually, these cookies are only set in response to actions you take by transmitting a service request, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in, or filling out forms. You can set your browser to block these cookies or to notify you about these cookies. However, in this case some areas of the website may not work.
The use of these session cookies is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) of the GDPR. Without the use of these cookies, it is technically impossible for you to request, access and use the website.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
Provided that your request is connected with the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the processing of this data is carried out based on Art. 6 Para. 1 (b) of the GDPR. In all other cases the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) of the GDPR).
The data entered by you in the contact form remains with us. You can revoke your consent or the purpose for the data storage is no longer applicable (e.g. after completion of the processing of your enquiry). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
Use of Google Maps
Provided that you accept the optional services via Data protection settings, Berlin Hyp uses “Google Maps API” map service from Google Inc. to display locations on an interactive map when searching for Berlin Hyp branch offices. As a result, information about the use of the Berlin Hyp website, including your IP address, may be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the US. If you use the advanced features of Google Maps, for example by clicking on the map displayed, your browser will establish a direct connection with Google’s servers. The map content is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and integrated into the website by it. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data collected by Google in this way.
Google undertakes not to disclose any information to third parties as part of its data protection declaration, but makes exceptions to this commitment. The data collected in this way may therefore be transferred to third parties if this is required by law in the US or if third parties process the data on behalf of Google. The data protection declaration of Google Inc. can be found here: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
Communication via e-mail can have security gaps. E-mails sent to our employees, for example, can be intercepted and viewed by experienced Internet users. If we receive an e-mail from you, we assume that we are entitled to reply by e-mail. If not, express reference must be made to a different method of communication.
Safety and security
To protect the data you have provided us with from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons, we use technical and organisational security measures. Our security measures are under continuous improvement in line with technological developments.
