Privacy policy

1. General
This privacy policy tells you how we process your personal data on our website, and the scope and nature of this processing.

We only collect and use users’ personal data to the extent that this is required to provide a functional website and to deliver our content and services. We only collect and use users’ personal data with the user’s consent. An exception applies in cases where we are unable to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and processing of personal data is permitted by law.

1.1 Definitions
SilvaVest – Gesellschaft für nachhaltige Agrar- und Waldinvestments mbH’s privacy policy is based on the terminology used by European legislative and regulatory authorities in adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We aim to make our privacy policy easy for the public, our clients and our business partners to read and understand. In order to achieve this, we would first like to explain some of the terms used.

In this privacy policy, we use the following terms:

a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’). An identifiable natural person is one who 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 to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

This general data and information is stored in server log files. The following data may be collected: (1) browser type and version, (2) the operating system used to access the website, (3) the website from which the user is referred to our website (referrer), (4) the web pages accessed on our website, (5) the date and time at which the website is accessed, (6) the user’s IP address, (7) the internet service provider of the system used to access the website, (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our IT systems.

5. Cookies
The SilvaVest – Gesellschaft für nachhaltige Agrar- und Waldinvestments mbH website uses cookies. Cookies are text files placed and stored on a computer via a browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies include a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier for a cookie. It consists of a sequence of characters which can be used by websites and servers to identify the specific browser on which the cookie has been stored. This enables websites and servers to distinguish the data subject’s individual browser from other browsers on which other cookies are stored. A unique cookie ID allows a specific browser to be recognised and identified.

By using cookies, SilvaVest – Gesellschaft für nachhaltige Agrar- und Waldinvestments mbH is able to provide users of this website with services which are more user friendly than would be possible without the use of cookies.

Cookies enable us to optimise the information and services on our website for the benefit of the user. As noted above, cookies enable us to recognise users of our website. The purpose of recognising these users is to make it easier for users to use our website. Users of a website who use cookies do not have to re-enter their access credentials every time they visit the website, for example, because this task is performed by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer. Another example is a shopping cart cookie for an online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to record the items the customer has placed in their virtual shopping cart.

The data subject can prevent our website from placing cookies on their computer at any time and permanently decline cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in their browser. In addition, previously stored cookies can be deleted at any time in the user’s browser or using another software program. All popular browsers offer this capability. If the data subject deactivates cookies in his or her browser, he or she may not be able to utilise the full functionality of our website.

Where individual cookies implemented by us also process personal data, this processing is carried out either for the performance of a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, or for the purposes of our legitimate interest in optimising website functionality and in ensuring that page visits are customer-friendly and effective pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. In the case of cookies that are unnecessary but serve the purpose of performing and tracking marketing, cookies are processed on the basis of consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR. This means that the processing and use of these cookies requires your prior consent. We use a consent management platform (often referred to as a cookie banner) for this purpose, which you can use to change your decision at any time.

We use the following cookies:

Cookie name Type Purpose Legal basis Expiration time
borlabs-cookie Essential cookie Used to save the cookie setting Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR 12 months
_ga Third party statistics cookie from Google Analytics Calculates visitor, session and campaign data, and tracks website usage for the analytics report. Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR 24 months
_gid Third party statistics cookie from Google Analytics Visitor behaviour on the website Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR 24 months
_gat_gtag_UA_137795969_1 Third party statistics cookie from Google Analytics Stores a unique account or website ID Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR 1 minute

 

We would also draw your attention to the fact that you can configure your browser so that you are informed when cookies are set and can decide whether to accept each cookie individually, or can deactivate the acceptance of cookies either in specific cases or completely. Instructions on how to change your cookie settings can be found in the help menu in every browser. Please note that the functionality of our website may be limited if you choose not to accept cookies.

Google Analytics (with anonymisation)
Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the measurement, collection and analysis of data relating to the behaviour of visitors to websites. The data collected by a web analytics service includes data on the website from which a data subject was referred to a website (‘referrer’), which pages of the website were accessed and how often, and for how long a page was viewed. Web analytics is primarily used for website optimisation and for cost-benefit analysis for internet advertising.

Google Analytics is operated by Google Ireland Limited.

The controller uses the “_gat._anonymizeIp” option for Google Analytics web analytics. Using this option means that Google truncates and anonymises the data subject’s IP address when our website is accessed from a European Union or European Economic Area Member State.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

Google Analytics is used to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained for purposes including analysing the use of our website, compiling online reports showing activity on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the website user’s device (PC, smartphone, tablet). This cookie enables Google to analyse the use of our website. Every time one of the pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and uses Google Analytics, is accessed, Google Analytics automatically causes the browser on the data subject’s information technology system to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As a result of this technical procedure, Google obtains personal data, including the data subject’s IP address, which Google uses for purposes which include enabling it to track the origin of visitors and clicks and thereby to bill its commission.

Cookies store personal information such as the time and location of access and the frequency with which the data subject visits our website. Every time a user visits our website, these personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, are transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected via this technical process to third parties.

Use of this service requires the user’s consent. The legal basis set out in Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR therefore applies.

Personal data is transferred to the US on the basis of the adequacy decision on the EU-US Privacy Shield issued by the European Commission. You can view the certificate at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI.

Data sent by us and linked with cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data for which the retention period has expired are automatically deleted once a month.

You can withdraw your consent to future cookie storage at any time by configuring your browser so that it does not accept cookies. We would draw your attention to the fact that doing so may mean that you are unable to fully utilise all of the features offered by this website.

As discussed above, the data subject can prevent our website from placing cookies on his or her computer and permanently decline cookies at any time by selecting the appropriate settings in his or her browser. Selecting these settings in the data subject’s browser will also stop Google from storing a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. In addition, any previously stored Google Analytics cookie can be deleted at any time either from within the user’s browser or by using another software program.

The data subject can also opt out of the collection and processing by Google of data on the use of this website generated by Google Analytics. To do so, the data subject should download and install a browser add-on from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on uses JavaScript to notify Google Analytics that data and information on visits to websites should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google treats installation of the browser add-on as an objection to processing. If the data subject’s information technology system is subsequently erased, formatted or reinstalled, in order to disable Google Analytics the data subject will need to reinstall the browser add-on. Should the browser add-on be uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person under their sphere of control, it can be reinstalled or reactivated.

Alternatively, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the following link: deactivate Google Analytics
Clicking on this link sets an opt-out cookie that prevents future collection of your data when visiting this website.

Further information and Google’s privacy policy and terms and conditions can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. A more detailed explanation of Google Analytics can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

Google Tag Manager
This website uses Google Tag Manager from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, to manage the display of advertisements.

Google Tag Manager is a solution that enables marketers to manage website tags through a single interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-free domain and does not collect any personal data. This tool can trigger other tags, which may then collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access such data. If you have declined cookies individually or for a domain, this will be taken into account for all tracking tags implemented by Google Tag Manager. Processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in carrying out statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes.

YouTube
This website contains at least one plugin from YouTube, belonging to Google Inc. based in San Bruno/California, USA. We use the YouTube function No-Cookies, i.e. we have activated extended data protection, videos are not accessed via youtube.com, but via youtube-nocookie.com. YouTube itself provides this function and thus ensures that YouTube does not store any cookies on your device at first. When you call up the relevant pages, however, the IP address and the other data mentioned in section 4 are transmitted and thus, in particular, information is provided about which of our Internet pages you have visited. This information cannot be assigned to you, however, if you are permanently logged on to YouTube or another Google service when you call up the page. As soon as you start playing an embedded video by clicking on it, YouTube will only save cookies on your device, which do not contain any personally identifiable data, due to the advanced privacy mode, unless you are currently logged in to a Google service. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions.

The employee of SilvaVest – Gesellschaft für nachhaltige Agrar- und Waldinvestments mbH will ensure that the request for erasure is complied with without undue delay.

9. Period for which personal data will be stored
Unless expressly stated in this privacy policy, data stored by us will be erased as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and as long as statutory record-keeping requirements do not prohibit their erasure.
The period for which personal data will be stored is determined based on the relevant statutory retention period (e.g. record-keeping periods set out in commercial and tax law).

11. Data processing outside the European Union:
Other than the exceptions described above, we do not process your personal data in a third country outside the European Union.

12. Legal or contractual provisions concerning the provision of personal data; necessity for entering into a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide personal data
We inform you that the provision of personal data is in part required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also arise from contractual terms (e.g. details of the contractual partner). Occasionally it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data which subsequently needs to be processed by us in order to enter into a contract. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would have the consequence that it would not be possible to enter into the contract with the data subject. Before providing us with personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject whether in their specific case the provision of personal data is legally or contractually required or is required in order to enter into the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and the consequences of failure to provide the personal data.

13. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
