As a matter of course we protect the data entrusted to us. It also goes without saying that all data collection on our part complies with the South African and European data protection guidelines. In the following paragraphs, you will learn how we use and process your personal data. We have made every effort to make the information as legible and transparent as possible. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Who is responsible for data processing?
Dr. Jan Grasshoff, Prenzlauer Allee 15, 10405 Berlin is responsible for the processing of personal data as described in these data protection regulations. If you have any questions regarding this data protection declaration or the processing of personal data, please contact him. You will find the contact details in the legal notice. Alternatively, you can use the contact form on this website.
Important note on the use of our contact data: The use of our contact data for sending unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby prohibited! We expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising or information, such as spam e-mails
What personal data is collected?
When you visit our website, various personal data is collected. For example, certain data is automatically collected by IT systems. This is mainly technical data (Internet browser used, operating system, IP address or time of visit). This data is collected automatically as soon as you access our website and is used to ensure that the website is error-free and to optimise it.
If you do not only surf our website but also wish to contact us via our website or make a booking with us, we must collect further data from you. This is information that is strictly necessary for contacting or booking accommodation. When you contact us, this includes your name, e-mail address, telephone number, address and personal message. When making a booking, we need other information that is normally necessary for such a process, such as the number of guests and information about the desired period of stay. All data is collected exclusively for the purpose of processing your enquiry or booking. The collection of this data is of a purely practical nature and only takes place within the framework of the requirements customary in the industry. Without this data collection, it is not possible to contact us or to book accommodation.
Will your data be passed on to third parties?
The most important thing first: In principle, we never pass on personal data from you to third parties, except to the extent necessary for the technical operation of this website or for answering your enquiry or making your booking. You, therefore, do not need to be concerned that we will pass on your data to third parties for marketing reasons. Any data transfer will only take place with the intention of fulfilling your request.
Who has access to your data with us? Who is the data protection officer?
We attach great importance to the protection of your data. In accordance with South African and European data protection laws, we take appropriate measures to ensure the protection of your personal data against misuse and unauthorised access. This means that only partners who need personal data to perform their duties will have access to it. The owner of the penthouses is the data protection officer.
We would like to point out that in certain cases, e.g. when communicating by e-mail, data transmission on the Internet can have general security gaps for which we are not responsible. However, for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as your enquiries, we generally use SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
How long is data stored?
How can you control what information we have on you?
So that you can check what personal data we have stored on you, you can ask us, at any time, to provide you with a free copy of this information. For security reasons, we prefer that you send your request in writing. You can also choose another communication channel. However, data protection also means that we must be sure that your enquiry really comes from you.
You may also notify us of any changes to your personal information or ask us to correct any personal information that we hold on you. We trust that you will ensure that your personal information is complete, accurate and current.
Your right to deletion of data!
If we use your personal data on the basis of your consent, you are entitled to revoke this consent at any time in accordance with applicable law. Furthermore, if we process your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest or in the public interest, you have the right to object to this use of your personal data at any time in accordance with applicable law. However, we would like to point out that you have the right to correct incorrect data or delete personal data where there is no statutory obligation to retain such data.
In the event of violations of data protection laws, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority (whereby we recommend that you contact us first). The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state. In this case, the state data protection officer of the state of Berlin.
Notes on the use of social media:
Social media plug-ins are integrated on our website, for example from Facebook or Instagram. If you click on a button (such as the Facebook button), certain information may be shared with that social media provider. If you are logged into your social media account at the same time, your social media provider may associate this information with your social media account and may display and share your social media activities with other users on your network
All social media companies integrated on our website are subject to the South African and European data protection guidelines. However, we would like to point out that we do not have any concrete knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or its use by the social media companies. Further information on this can be found in the data protection declarations of the social media companies. If you do not want a social media company to be able to assign visits to our pages to your social media user account, please log out of your social media account.
