1. General information on data processing
It is not necessary to input any personal data in order to use our website. However, it may be the case that we offer some services for which personalisation is required or permitted. When using these services, rules may differ and, in that case, they will be separately outlined below. We only process your personal data (e.g. name, address, email, telephone number etc.) in accordance with the law on privacy which applies to us. The personal data of our users are only ever collected and used with users’ consent. Exceptions thereto constitute cases where it is not possible to first obtain consent for practical reasons and/or where data processing is permitted by law. Data are classed as personal if it is possible to clearly associate them with a specific individual. The rules outlined below provide information regarding the type, extent and purpose of data collection, use and processing, provided that data is processed.

2. Legal basis for processing personal data
If the individual involved gives us their consent to process their data, this consent serves as the legal basis for processing personal data, as per the law on privacy.
When processing the personal data required to fulfil a contract and the individual involved is a contracting party, the legal basis for data processing shall be contract conclusion. This shall also apply when it is necessary to process data in order to implement pre-contractual measures. Pre-contractual measures may also constitute a legal basis in their own right if a contract is not subsequently concluded.
If it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfil one of our company’s legal obligations, this may also serve as a legal basis in accordance with the law on privacy.
In the event that the vital interests of the individual involved, or another individual, render it necessary to process personal data, this may also serve as a legal basis in accordance with the law on privacy.
Furthermore, it may also be necessary to process data in order to preserve a legitimate interest of neueRäume GmbH (Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung, limited liability company), or a third party, provided that these interests do not stand in opposition to the main basic rights or freedom of the party involved.

5. Tracking and web analytics services

Google-Maps
Our website redirects to Google Maps in order to indicate our company location, as well as to generate directions. This is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.
Thanks to being certified as per the EU-US Privacy Shield
https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active
Google guarantees that the EU requirements on data protection are observed even when data is being processed in the USA.
If you visit our website, a connection is created to the Google server in the USA. This is done in order to make it possible to show certain text on our website.
If you click on the Google Maps tool integrated into our website, Google will save a cookie on your device via your internet browser. User settings and data are processed so that our company location can be indicated and directions can be generated. When this takes place, we cannot guarantee that the Google server in the USA is not put to use.
The legal basis is Article 6, paragraph 1, item f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to optimise our website functionality.
Using the connection created, Google is able to determine the website from which the request has been sent and the IP address to which the directions should be forwarded.
If you do not wish for your data to be processed in this way, you may prevent cookies from being installed by changing your browser settings. You can find more details under the item “Cookies” above.

Provided that it is possible to obtain more concrete information, this should take place within the scope of the relevant purpose for processing.

• if you contest the accuracy of your personal data and we had the opportunity to check whether these data were accurate
