Data protection

Information pursuant to Articles 13, 14 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Data protection is one of the most important tasks and challenges of our time. As a service-oriented company, we work for your benefit and use your personal data with the utmost precaution. The following information will give you a general picture of how we handle your data and what rights you have. Please note that we can only give you an overview at this point. If you have any questions, please contact us.


1. Responsibility

Responsible for your data in terms of data protection regulations:

BaugeldBoerse GmbH & Co. KG,

Managing Directors: Bernd Herrmann, Christiane Kvarics

Borkumstraße 2, 13189 Berlin,


Phone +4930-40 50 89 80 / Fax +4930-40 50 89 60


2. Collection of personal data

It is always possible to visit our website without personal data being required or collected.

3. Cookies

We use so-called cookies. These are small files that are stored locally on your device. They make it possible to measure the frequency of page views and your general navigation through our website. For this purpose, we use so-called session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies are automatically deleted from your device at the end of the browser session or after a certain period of inactivity. Permanent cookies remain on your device and enable us to recognize your device on your next visit. Data identifying you as a user is neither stored nor linked to you as a person. You can deactivate the setting of cookies in your browser. It is possible, however, that certain functions of this website will not work in this case.

4. Automatic collection of data

Whenever our website is accessed, our system automatically records data and information about the accessing computer (so-called log files). The log files do not contain any IP addresses (or only in anonymized form) or other data that allow anyone to identify you as a user. They are used for statistical analysis only and to improve the website.

5. Use of social media plugins

On our website you will find the following or similar buttons to SocialPlugins of other online networks: Linkedin, Facebook, Xing.

These buttons, if displayed on the website, do not yet connect to the servers of Linkedin, Facebook and Xing. Only by clicking on these buttons do you give your consent to communicating with Linkedin, Facebook or Xing, and a connection is activated.

Should you already be registered with a social network of your choice, this takes place without another window being opened. Since this transfer is direct, we do not receive any knowledge of the transferred data. Only the fact that you have called up the corresponding page is transmitted. If you are logged in to Facebook & Co. at the same time, this information is assigned to your social media account and thus associated with your person.

For information on the further use and storage of your personal data by Linkedin, Facebook and Xing, please contact these social media companies directly. It is also possible to block social media plugins with add-ons through your browser.

We use the plugins for advertising purposes. Sharing and recommending content from our website in social networks raises awareness regarding our company; the legal foundation for this is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f GDPR. The use of the plugins for advertising purposes thus enhances our legitimate interest on the basis of GDPR.

We use Shariff on our website. With Shariff the connection to the network server is established only by clicking on the plugin. Shariff is kindly provided online as open source software by the computer magazine c’t and heise. More information can be found on the pages of Heise:

6. Web analytics

We also apply 1&1 Webanalytics on our website. In this case too, data is collected exclusively for statistical evaluation and technical optimization of the website. The recorded IP address of the device accessing our site is used in anonymous form only (to determine location of access). Attribution to a concrete user is not possible.

7. Contact form

On our website you will find a contact form that can be used for electronic contact. If you choose to use this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. This applies to the following (mandatory) data: your name, e-mail address, telephone number, message. Any further information provided voluntarily is also transmitted and stored. When sending the contact request, reference is made to the processing of your data and this data protection declaration. The data you provide will be used only to contact you and will not be passed on to any third party. The pertinent legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures, and your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1a in connection with Art. 7 GDPR. The data collected via the contact form will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected, i.e. usually after the end of the conversation with you.

8. Objection to processing of personal data in the contact form

Pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, you are entitled at any time to object to the processing of your personal data collected via the contact form; pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR, you are also entitled to revoke your consent. If you wish to lodge an objection, please contact us or our data protection officer by e-mail or telephone. In this case a further conversation and processing of your request will no longer be possible. If you object to the processing of the personal data entered by you and revoke your consent, your data will be deleted pursuant to the provisions of data protection legislation. Further details of your data protection rights are based on articles 15 to 21 DSGVO. In addition to the rights already explained, you have the right of information (Art. 15), the right of correction (Art. 16), the right of deletion or limitation of processing (Art. 17 and Art. 18) and the right of data transferability (Art. 20 DSGVO).

9. Use of OpenStreetMap

We use OpenStreetMaps on our website. OpenStreetMap is a community project administered by the Openstreetmap Foundation, 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B72 1JU, United Kingdom. The integration of OpenStreetMap is performed by embedding the service on our website by using a so-called iFrame. When loading this iFrame, OpenStreetMap may collect and process information (including personal data). It cannot be excluded that OpenStreetMap may also transfer the information to a server in a third country. We cannot influence what data OpenStreetMap actually collects and processes. OpenStreetMaps does, however, indicate that when the services are accessed, access is recorded, for example by log files. For more information, cf. under the section “Log files and Information submitted to OSMF Services”. The purpose of including OpenStreetMaps is to enable us to present you our address. We can also present other locations to you through integrating OpenStreetMaps. The legal basis for the processing of personal data as described here is Art. 6 para.1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest required to this end lies in the considerable benefit generated by OpenStreetMaps offers. Integrating OpenStreetMaps allows us to present directions to the various locations without using unclear map sketches, and thus let users plan their own access to the location independently. Furthermore, OpenStreetMaps has a legitimate interest in the collected (personal) data in order to improve its own services.

10. Complaints office

Finally, if you fear that the processing of your personal data violates GDPR, Art. 77 GDPR entitles you to file a data protection complaint with a supervisory authority. In our case, the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information is the competent authority. His address:

Friedrichstr. 219

10969 Berlin

Phone: +49 (0)30 13889-0

fax: +49 (0)30 2155050


You can use our website to submit a direct financing request. Submitting the financing inquiry involves collection of the data required for this purpose. Your data will be transmitted in encrypted form. It can be accessed by various partners. When you provide your data, we offer comprehensive information about the processing of personal data and your rights pertaining hereto in a separate data protection declaration.
