We will use your personal information for this purpose until you request that we no longer send you information.
For this purpose, we generally process your personal data with your name and e-mail address, less often a telephone number or a postal address – depending on what personal data you have disclosed to us.
On the same legal basis and for the same purpose, we may also transfer your personal data to our cooperation partners, who we use in the development, advertising and sale of our products and services (especially real estate projects) (including relevant real estate companies and brokerage services).
We will only publish the names of lottery winners for marketing purposes with your consent.
Personal data of customers and potential customers
We process personal data (including, for example, name, personal identification code, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address) disclosed to us in the course of communicating with customers and potential customers, primarily for the purpose of establishing and maintaining customer relationships. We have a legitimate interest in answering inquiries, ensuring customer satisfaction and providing our own products and services. In addition, we process such data for the purpose of fulfilling our contractual obligations and protecting our rights.
For the above purposes, we may process your personal data, inter alia, if you have disclosed your personal data to us via the contact form on our website or by communicating with us by e-mail. For example, if you have asked us for information about a specific project or a price offer – so that we can send you the requested information, offer, etc. and prepare, conclude, execute and, if necessary, protect our rights in case of a negotiated contract.
For example, in the case of booking and sales contracts, we process your name, personal identification code, e-mail address, telephone number, current account number, financial and other information as necessary to prepare, enter into and perform the contract (and also for protecting rights). Until the conclusion of the contract, we process the relevant information for the purpose of concluding the contract (establishing a customer relationship) and protecting the rights, from the conclusion of the contract for the purpose of fulfilling the contract and protecting the rights. We process personal data for as long as it is necessary for the above purposes.
On the same legal basis and for the same purpose, we may also transfer your personal data to our partners, who we use to negotiate, prepare, conclude and enforce contracts and protect rights (e.g. brokerage service providers, notaries, legal service providers, etc).
Personal data of cooperation partners
We process the personal data of our cooperation partners, their employees and representatives, including, for example, the name, position, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth or personal identification code, etc. of the contractual partner, their employee or representative, which are necessary for the performance of the contract, and, where appropriate, for the protection of rights.
For the same purposes, we may also transfer personal data to our other cooperation partners who we use to perform the contract and, if necessary, to protect rights (e.g. construction companies, legal service providers, etc.).
Personal data of job candidates
