If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is being transmitted in encrypted form by the closed representation of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

Retrieval of data from real estate portals and evaluation

As part of our core business, we collect data about properties that are offered on real estate portals. This factual data always relates to real estate, but in individual cases it may also be possible to draw conclusions about the owner or tenant via the address or information about the property, without this possibly achievable reference to natural persons being of importance for our service provision ("personal factual data" ). The property data is obtained via a software interface (API) or determined by a service provider using predefined regions. The property data is used to evaluate which properties are suitable for acquisition by us. Expansion options and the rental prices to be achieved are then also included in the evaluation. The property data is stored long-term for the analysis of the real estate market and regional development. We do not draw any conclusions about natural persons.
As part of the evaluation, we can also transmit property data to the service provider Sprengnetter (Sprennetter Real Estate Services GmbH, Sprengnetter-Campus 1, 53474 Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler) for a comparative analysis with similar properties from the same area. This then provides data on similar objects in the vicinity of the offered object.
If the object data is personal data at all, it is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest lies in the pursuit of our company purpose.
