According to Art. 4 No. 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

1. Name and contact details of the person responsible for processing and the data protection officer when visitng the website

This privacy policy applies to the data processing on the website g-w.berlin by the data controller:

Tel: +49 30 69001606

Our data protection officer can be contacted at the above address, for the attention of the data protection officer or at datenschutz@g-w.berlin.

You can contact our data protection officer directly at any time if you have any questions regarding data protection law or your rights as a data subject.

2. Processing of personal data and purposes of processing

You can access g-w.berlin  without revealing your identity. The browser used on your terminal device will automatically send information to the server of our website (e.g. browser type and version, date and time of access) to enable a connection to the server. This also includes the IP address of your requesting terminal device. The data is temporarily stored in a so-called log file and will be anonymised after 7 days.

The IP address is processed for technical and administrative purposes of establishing and maintaining the connection, in order to guarantee the security and functionality of our website and to be able to trace possible illegal attacks on it if necessary.

The legal basis for the processing of the IP address and log-fils is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the above-mentioned security interest and the need to ensure that our website is available without disruption.

We cannot draw any direct conclusions about your identity from the processing of the IP address and other information in the log file.

Furthermore, we use cookies and analysis services when you visit our website. You will find more detailed explanations in sections 4 and 5 of this privacy policy.

For the hosting of this website we use the web hosting service of ALL-INKL.COM – Neue Medien Münnich, Hauptstr. 68, 02742 Friedersdorf (in the following „ALL-INKL.COM“).

In order to offer this website, it is necessary to commission a web hosting service. In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, the web hosting service is used due to our legitimate economic interest in making our services available on this website. In connection with the hosting service, ALL-INKL.COM processes personal data on our behalf, which are generated while using the website.

We have entered into a data processing agreement with ALL-INKL.COM. Through this agreement, the service provider assures that it processes the data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and guarantees the protection of the rights of the data subject.

3. Transfer of personal data
3.1. Transfer of data to third parties

We will only transfer your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR
  • in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass on the data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR.
3.2. Third country transfer

A transfer of personal data to a third country or an international organisation will only take place if we inform you of this and if the conditions of Art. 44 et seqq. GDPR are given.

The USA is a so-called unsafe third country. This means, that the US does not offer a level of data protection comparable to that in the EU. The risks involved in transferring personal data to the US are as follows: There is a risk that US authorities may gain access to personal data on the basis of the PRISM and UPSTREAM surveillance programmes based on Section 702 of the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act), and on the basis of Executive Order 12333 or Presidential Police Directive 28. EU citizens have no effective means of redress against such access in the US or the EU.

We will inform you in this privacy policy when and how we transfer personal data to the USA or other unsafe third countries. We will only transfer your personal data if

  • the recipient provides appropriate safeguards in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR for the protection of personal data,
  • you have explicitly agreed to the transmission, after we have informed you of the risks, in accordance with Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR,
  • the transmission is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual obligations between you and us
  • or another exception from Art. 49 GDPR applies.

Safeguards under Art. 46 DSGVO can be so-called standard contractual clauses. In these standard contractual clauses, the recipient assures to protect the data sufficiently and thus to ensure a level of protection comparable to that provided by the GDPR.
