The content of this website was created with the greatest possible care. However, we cannot assume liability for the completeness, topicality, and accuracy of the content provided. According to Sections 8 - 10 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), as a service provider we are not obliged to monitor third-party information that has been transmitted or stored, or to search for indications and circumstances that indicate the illegality of activities and information.
An obligation on our part to block the use of content within the framework of general laws always remains unaffected by this. However, this liability only comes into question at the moment of becoming aware of a concrete violation of rights. Should we become aware of any infringements of rights, we shall remove the corresponding content without delay.
As a service provider, our liability for our own content is governed by the general laws.
This website contains links to third-party websites - so-called external links. The content of these external links is beyond our control. As a result, we do not assume any liability for such content.
The responsibility always lies with the respective operator of the external pages. At the time of linking the external links, no legal violations were apparent. The permanent monitoring of external content for legal violations without concrete indications is not reasonable for us.
Should we become aware of any legal infringements, we will remove the corresponding external links immediately.
German copyright and ancillary copyright law apply to the content published by the provider on this site. Insofar as the copying, editing, distribution, or any other type of use lies outside of German copyright and ancillary copyright law, the written consent of the respective creator is required. Unauthorised copying or downloading of these pages is permitted exclusively for private use, but not for commercial use. Unless we, as the operator, also act as the creator of the content, the copyrights of third parties are respected. We always endeavour to mark such content as third-party content. If you notice a copyright infringement despite the thorough and careful work on our part, we ask you to inform us so that the removal of the respective content can be arranged immediately.
The following data protection declaration explains which personal data we process and how it is processed.
So that you know who to contact with regard to your data, we will first give you information about who is legally responsible for the processing and who the specific contact person is for your concerns.
Legally responsible person:
Data protection officer:
Every time you access a website, your internet browser automatically transmits information to our web server for technical reasons (so-called log data). We store some of this information in log files, e.g.
In principle, we only evaluate log data to rectify faults in the operation of our website or to clarify security incidents.
For troubleshooting purposes or to preserve evidence in the event of security incidents, it may be necessary for us to collect additional personal data with the log data. In these cases, we base the processing of the log data on legal permission.
This processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation); our interest is the technical provision, security and optimisation of the website.
You can contact us via the contact form. The data entered there is partly necessary to enable communication and to process your request. In this case, they are marked as mandatory fields. Other data that you give make it easier for us to address you personally or to process your request more effectively or more quickly.
This processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR.
We use contact and communication data and other relevant personal data from our suppliers and customers, insofar as they or their employees are natural persons. We process this data for the purpose of conducting business relationships and communication as well as maintaining contacts.
The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR; our legitimate interests are the handling of the business cooperation and contact maintenance.
You can register as a user of our website to receive the energate messenger+, energate messenger Schweiz, emw.trends, and energate immo trial subscription. Registration is required for the use of further services. As part of the registration process, we collect and process the following information in order to fulfil your request in the best possible way:
This processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR.
After registering on our website, you can also use services that are subject to a fee. To order the service, we collect and process the following order data in addition to the data collected during registration.
This processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR.
You can subscribe to newsletters on our website. We have marked the data we need to be able to send you the newsletter; you can voluntarily give us further data so that we can address you in a personalised manner or better coordinate the content. For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the registration process, and reference is made to this data protection declaration.
To check whether the newsletter subscription has actually been made by the owner of an email address, we use the "double opt-in procedure". The newsletter is only subscribed to if the owner of the email address has previously expressly confirmed the activation of the newsletter by clicking on the link in the confirmation email. As proof, we log the execution of the individual phases of the double-opt-in procedure.
If you register to receive our newsletter and thus consent to its dispatch, your data will be used exclusively for the purpose of sending the newsletter. You can revoke this consent at any time. You will find a link to this effect in every newsletter. Your unsubscription from the newsletter will be recorded in our database.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user's email address is therefore stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.
This processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR.
If you purchase goods or services on our website and enter your email address, it can subsequently be used by us to send you a newsletter. In that case, only direct advertising for our own similar goods or services will be sent via the newsletter. The legal basis is Section 7 (3) of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG - Gesetz gegen den unlauteren Wettbewerb).
We store the data until the end of the runtime of a respective cookie or until the cookies are deleted by you.
These processing operations are based on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. Our interest is the ongoing optimisation of the website and the improvement of user-friendliness.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). The use includes the "Universal Analytics" mode of operation. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus to analyse the activities of a user across devices.
Content from our website can be shared on social networks via built-in social media buttons. All social media buttons that enable the sharing of content are not directly integrated via social plugins of the social network providers but via simple hyperlinks. This way, we ensure that your data is not automatically transmitted to social network servers as soon as you access our website. Furthermore, when sharing content from our website, we only transmit the data to the social network that is needed to share the corresponding content. We do not transmit any personal data.
In addition, there are simple links to our websites on the respective social networks. If you follow the link from our website to a social network or register with your social network to share content from our website, your data will be processed by the respective provider of the social network. The purpose and scope of the data collection, the further processing, and use of the data by the provider of the social network as well as related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in the information on data protection of the respective provider.
For the implementation and operation of our website, we work with service providers who may receive personal data:
We only transfer your data to the recipients if it is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you, or if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer of your data, or if we have your consent for the transfer. These recipients include service providers and other companies in the group.
We do not share personal data with recipients located outside the EEA in so-called third countries.
In so far as the personal data is required for the establishment and implementation of the business relationship and the associated contractual or legal obligations, this data must be provided by you so that we can fulfil our performance obligations or legal obligations. Without the provision of the data, we may no longer be able to provide the service or may not be able to do so correctly or completely.
If we store your personal data, this will only be for a limited time and no longer than necessary. In principle, we delete your data when it is no longer necessary for the processing purpose for which it was collected or if there are other legal reasons that require deletion.
Insofar as we are subject to legal retention obligations that require longer retention, we store the data for this period to comply with retention periods under commercial and tax law, which are between 2 and 10 years.
Other legal reasons for retention may be that we need to retain data for evidentiary purposes for the duration of the applicable statute of limitations. These periods are generally between 2 and 30 years.
As the legal details of your rights in relation to your personal data are quite complicated, we provide you with the most important information on rights below. You can also contact our Data Protection Officer to find out more about what these rights mean in detail. Please let us know in which form you would like to receive the information. If you do not indicate a wish, we will usually answer your request in the same form as the request. You will receive feedback within one month. In the case of obviously unfounded or excessive requests, we are entitled to charge an appropriate fee or to refuse your request.
You have the right to request information about whether or not we are processing personal data relating to you. If we process your personal data, you will receive information about the specific data and further additional information.
You have the right to request us to correct your data if it is incorrect, inaccurate and/or incomplete; the right to rectification includes the right to completion through supplementary declarations or notifications.
You have the right to request that we delete your personal data if there is no longer a reason to keep it.
You have the right to have the processing of your personal data restricted in certain cases for a specific scope.
You may have the right to request the return of data relating to you in a commonly used electronic, machine-readable data format.
The right to data transfer includes the right to transfer the data to another controller; upon request, we will - as far as technically possible - transfer data directly to a controller designated by you or yet to be designated. The right to data transfer only applies to data provided by you, and requires that the processing is based on consent or is used for the performance of a contract, and is carried out with the help of automated processes.
In the case of processing of personal data for the performance of tasks in the public interest (Art. 6 (1) (e) of the GDPR or for the performance of legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR), you may object to the processing of personal data concerning your person at any time with effect for the future if there is no reason for further processing.
(Please note that you are not legally entitled to the right to object if the processing is based on consent. However, since you are entitled to a right to revoke consent with effect for the future whenever data is processed with your consent, you achieve a result comparable to the objection by revoking it).
If you have given us consent to process your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time and without giving reasons with effect for the future. To do so, please contact the contact point where you gave your consent or the Data Protection Officer directly.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority regarding the processing of your personal data, Art. 77 of the GDPR.
