gtp2 architects responsible for data collection, processing and use are committed to protecting the privacy of all individuals who use our services and keep their personal information confidential. Our employees and service providers are regularly committed to data secrecy. The basis for this are the applicable legal provisions, such as the regulation of order data processing (ADV) according to §11 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and according to Art. 28 u. 29 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Personal data are individual details about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person (“data”), § 3 Abs. 1 BDSG or Art. 4 GDPR. This includes information such as your name, address, telephone number or E-mail address.
The data of the users are used only if a legal permission or a consent of yours exists. We take organizational, contractual and technical security measures to ensure compliance with data protection laws and to protect the data we manage against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons.
You should always keep your access information confidential and close the browser window when you stop communicating with us, especially if you share your computer with others.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS. We point out that the internet-based data transmission has security gaps, a complete protection against access by third parties is therefore unfortunately impossible.
The personal data of the users are used for the execution of our services, services and user services. When contacting us, e.g. via contact form or e-mail, the information will only be saved to process the request and in case of queries.
A passing on to third does not take place. A comparison of the data collected with data, which may be collected by other components of our site, is also not done. The personal data will be deleted if they are no longer required or the deletion does not conflict with statutory retention requirements.
Should the user contact gtp2 architects by e-mail, we point out that the confidentiality of the transmitted information is not guaranteed. The content of unencrypted e-mails can be viewed by third parties. For confidential information, we therefore recommend only the postal service.
You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. We only store access data in so-called server log files. These data are evaluated solely to ensure trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer and do not allow us to infer yourself and are not merged by gtp2 architects with data from other data sources.
Different regulations may apply to the use of individual services on our website, which will be explained separately in this case below.
Access to our website is logged for security analysis and defense against attacks. In this case, with the exception of the IP address, no personal data is collected and used. An evaluation of IP addresses takes place exclusively in the case of an attack. Log data is regularly deleted promptly.
For technical reasons a.o. The following data, which your Internet browser transmits to us or to our hosting provider, is recorded (so-called server log files):
– type and version of the browser you use
– operating system
– your internet service provider
– websites that linked you to our site (referrer URL)
– websites that you visit
– date and time of your visit
– amount of data sent in bytes
– your Internet Protocol (IP) address
These anonymous data are stored separately from any personal information that you may provide and so do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a particular person. They are evaluated only for statistical purposes in order to optimize our website and our offers.
In order to make the visit of our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we or third parties use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files or other types of information stored on your device. Most of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies).
Other cookies remain on your device and allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit it (persistent cookies). You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies, decide on a case-by-case basis, or rule out the acceptance of cookies. The non-acceptance of cookies may limit the functionality of our website.
You will usually find instructions in the help function integrated in the browser or under:
There is also the possibility to manage many online advertising cookies from companies through the US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices or the European website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/.
Here you will find detailed information about which cookies are used on our websites by us or third parties, their function, the duration of storage and how you can object or manage their use.
We use Google Analytics on our website, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics employs so-called „cookies“, text files that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our website by users, to compile reports on the activities within this website and to provide us with other services related to the use of this website and the internet. In this case, pseudonymous user profiles of the processed data can be created.
We use Google Analytics on our website with an activated IP anonymization function. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened and thus anonymised by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
The IP address provided by the user’s browser will not be associated with any other data provided by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
You can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. If you delete your cookies, you must click the link again.
For more information about Google’s promotional use of data, hiring and opt-out options, visit the following Google Web sites: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners/ Data usage by Google when you use websites or apps of our partners: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/technologies/ads/ Data usage for advertising purposes and manage information that Google uses to show you ads: https://adssettings.google.com/ Determine for yourself which advertising Google shows you.
In order to present our content in a correct and graphically appealing way across our browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on our website, such as: Google webfonts (https://fonts.google.com/). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
We use the ”Google Maps” component of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter ”Google“. Google sets a cookie in order to process the user configuration and data when the page with the integrated “Google Maps” component is displayed. As a general rule, this cookie is not deleted by closing the browser, but rather expires after a certain time, as long as it is not previously manually deleted by you.
If you do not agree with this processing of your data, you may choose to deactivate the “Google Maps” service and thereby prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps” or at least only to a limited extent.
http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/regional.html and the additional terms and conditions for “Google Maps”: https://www.google.com/intl/en_us/help/terms_maps.html.
In order to protect input forms on our site, we use the “reCAPTCHA” service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”. By means of this service it can be distinguished whether the corresponding input is of human origin or is created improperly by automated machine processing.
To our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behaviour of the website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and length of stay, cookies, display instructions and scripts, user input behaviour and mouse movements in the “reCAPTCHA” checkbox are conveyed to “Google”.
Google uses the information obtained, among other things, to digitize books and other printed matter as well as to optimize services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and street name recognition).
The IP address provided as part of “reCAPTCHA” is not merged with other data from Google unless you are logged into your Google Account at the time the “reCAPTCHA” plug-in is used. If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data by „Google” about you and your behaviour on our website, you must log out of “Google” before you visit our site or before using the reCAPTCHA plug-in.
On our website we use components (videos) of YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company belonging to Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To this end, we use the “ – enhanced data protection mode – ” option provided by YouTube. When you display a page that has an embedded video, a connection will be made to the YouTube server and the content will appear on the website via a communication to your browser.
According to the information provided by YouTube, in “ – enhanced data protection mode -”, data is only transferred to the YouTube server, in particular which of our websites you have visited, if you watch the video. If you are logged onto YouTube at the same time, this information will be matched to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this from happening by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.
Further information about data protection by YouTube is provided by Google under the following link: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/
We use Vimeo components on our site. Vimeo is a service of Vimeo LCC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
Whenever you visit our website, which is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding display of the Vimeo component.
When you visit our site and are at the same time logged into Vimeo, Vimeo recognizes by means of the information collected by the component, which specific page you are visiting and assigns this information to your personal account at Vimeo. If, for example, you click on the “Play” button or make comments, this information will be conveyed to your personal user account at Vimeo and stored there.
In addition, the information that you have visited our site will be passed on to Vimeo. This is done regardless of whether you click on the component/comment or not.
For reasons of data protection, we do not include social plugins directly in our website. Therefore, if you access our pages, no data will be transmitted to social media services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Linkedin. A profile formation by third parties is thus excluded.
“Shariff” integrates these social network share buttons on our website only as graphics, which contain a link to the corresponding social network. By clicking on the corresponding graphic you will be redirected to the services of the respective network. The Shariff button does not establish direct contact between the social network and our visitors until the visitor actively clicks on the share button.
Only then will your data be transmitted to the respective social network, where you (possibly after entering your login data) e.g. press the Like or Share button. If the Shariff button is not clicked, there will be no exchange between you and the social networks. More information about the c’t project “Shariff” can be found at http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html
On our website we include the following social networks with “Shariff”:

Microsoft’s Bing Webmaster Tools store one or more “cookies” on your computer. For example, Bing uses a cookie with a unique ID, also known as a search ID, to run the service and enable certain search features. Microsoft uses these cookies to provide the Bing services and to provide a search environment with more relevant results. Cookies can be removed or blocked by the computer via the browser settings. In addition, Microsoft uses web beacons to store cookies and create analytics. These may also be third-party “web beacons” that are not allowed to collect any personal information.
For Bing services, Microsoft can use this information to provide relevant search results. The information collected also helps to ensure and improve the quality, security and integrity of Microsoft’s services. For example, this information is used to research and improve the relevance of Bing search results. Microsoft also needs this information to detect security vulnerabilities and protect you from security threats such as botnet attacks, click fraud, worms, and other threats. (Source: Microsoft)
You can prevent the Bing detection by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. If you delete your cookies, you must click the link again. Bing Opt-Out
It may happen that content from third parties, such as RSS feeds, iFrames or graphics from other websites are included in our online offer. This always presupposes that the respective providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users.
Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of each user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content.
However, we do not have any influence on this if the third parties provide the IP address e.g. save for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.
Some of our websites also contain links to other websites that are not operated by gtp2 architekten. As far as the user visits such websites, the data protection regulations and other information applicable on this website should be observed. We assume no responsibility for the privacy standard and the handling of personal data and their contents.
On the basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you can contact us free of charge with questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data and their correction, blocking, deletion or revocation of a given consent.
We point out that you are entitled to a correction of incorrect data or deletion of personal data should this claim not be prevented by a statutory retention obligation.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent regulatory authority in the event of unlawful processing.
