Data Protection Policy
Information on the processing of personal data when visiting the website “www.loft-berlin.com” in accordance with Art. 13 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (status 21.12.2020)
We, Covivio Office Holding GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “COHG”, further information about our company can be found in the imprint on our website: https://www.loft-berlin.com/impressum/), are pleased that you are visiting our website (www.loft-berlin.com).
This Data Protection Policy informs you about the processing of your personal data when using our website about the LOFT office project in Berlin Alt-Moabit and your rights in this respect according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
Should you have any questions regarding the content of the Data Protection Policy, you can contact us at any time at the following address:
As changes in the law or changes in our internal company processes may require us to amend this Data Protection Policy, this Data Protection Policy may change over time. You can access and print out the current Data Protection Policy at https://www.loft-berlin.com/datenschutz.
§1 Scope of application
This Data Protection Policy applies to the processing of your personal data within the scope of your visit and your use of the Internet offer of “COHG” (as the person responsible; cf. § 10) under the domain www.loft-berlin.com as well as the various sub-domains and individual pages (hereinafter collectively referred to as “website”).
The “recipient” is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data is disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with EU or national law are not considered as recipients. The processing of such data by those authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection legislation, in accordance with the purposes of the processing.
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A person is considered to be identifiable, if it can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
The “responsible person” is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by EU law or by the law of the Member States, such EU or national law may determine, or provide for the criteria for determining, who is to be considered as responsible person.
“Processing” is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or modification, reading out, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
§3 Guarantee of data security
We take technical and operational security precautions on our website to protect the personal data stored with us from access by third parties, loss or misuse and to enable secure data transfer. We must point out that, due to the structure of the Internet, unwanted access to data by third parties may occur. It is therefore also in your area of responsibility and interest to protect your data against misuse by encrypting or in any other way. Without appropriate protective measures, in particular data transmitted in without encryption, even if transmitted by e-mail, can be read by third parties.
§4 Data protection of minors
The protection of minors on the Internet is a matter of course and particularly desirable for the “COHG”. For this reason, “COHG” advises all parents and guardians to train minors to handle personal data on the Internet responsibly. Minors, especially children, should not transmit any personal data to “COHG” or via the Internet without the consent of their parents or guardians.
§5 Data protection (including the purposes and legal basis of data processing; duration of storage) on the website www.loft-berlin.com
In the following, we list the purposes of processing your personal data and the necessary legal basis. Your personal data will not be used for any other purposes than those specified in this Data Protection Policy. A transfer of your personal data to third parties without your consent will also not take place, except in the cases described in this Data Protection Policy, unless we are legally obliged to hand over this data.
In detail, we store the following data:
1. visit to the website

Integration of Google Maps
On this website we use the offer of Google Maps, a service provided by the company Google Ireland Limited. This serves the purpose of displaying interactive maps directly on the website, making it easy for you to find the places we have indicated on the website and to enabling you to use the map function conveniently.
This application is accessed directly from Google’s servers so that the company receives the IP address currently assigned to you. By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding sub-page of our website. Whether and to what extent or for how long the IP address is stored and used internally by Google is beyond our knowledge. The legal basis for the integration of this service is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
This website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps and to create directions. Google Maps is a mapping service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function, may be transmitted to Google in the USA. When you call up a web page on our website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers. The map content is transmitted by Google directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data collected by Google in this way. According to our knowledge, this is at least the following data:
- Date and time of the visit to the website in question,
- Internet address or URL of the website accessed,
- IP address, (start) address entered as part of route planning.
We have no influence on the further processing and use of the data by Google and can therefore accept no responsibility for this. If you do not wish Google to collect, process or use data about you via our website and have therefore not given your consent to the use of Google Maps, you will not be able to use the map display. For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights in this respect and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Google’s data protection information (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de).

Beyond this, your data will not be passed on to third parties. Data will only be passed on if this is required and permitted by law.

- Furthermore, you have the right to request the deletion of your data; we will comply with this deletion request, unless in exceptional cases, there is a case that entitles us to further processing.
- In addition, if there is a justified reason for doing so, you can demand the restriction of processing.
- Furthermore, you have the right to object to data processing and the right to request a copy of the data.
If you have given us consent to process your data or if you have voluntarily provided us with your personal data in non-mandatory fields in the online forms on our website, you can revoke the processing of this data at any time with effect for the future.
