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.

– websites that you visit

– date and time of your visit

– amount of data sent in bytes

For this purpose, we use Wordfence Firewall from Defiant Inc., 800 5th Ave Ste 4100, Seattle, WA 98104, USA on our website. Wordfence uses so-called “cookies”, text files. The information generated by the cookies about the behavior of the user when using our website is only used to prevent unauthorized access and code manipulation on our website. You can find the data protection declaration here: and their Terms of Use:




In order to present our content in a correct and graphically appealing way across our browsers, we use script libraries on our website, such are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading.


Since a external call of script or font libraries triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data. We provide these scripts and fonts locally from our server.




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


On our website we include the following social networks with “Shariff”:

– Facebook:

facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA

For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers on their sites and their rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy of the provider.




We maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services, projects and events. When calling the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and the privacy policy apply to their respective operators. Unless otherwise stated in our Privacy Policy, we process users’ data as long as they communicate with us within social networks and platforms, e.g. Write posts on our online presence or send us messages.




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.
