Data Privacy Notice
Data protection information for the use of our website www.value.ag
We take the protection of your data very seriously. The collection, processing and use of your personal data that has been disclosed to us is carried out in accordance with statutory provisions and in accordance with applicable data protection laws, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union. The following information regarding data processing provides you with an overview of how we ensure the protection of your personal data and which data is collected for which purpose. Personal data is information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. This particularly includes information that allows conclusions to be drawn about your identity – for example, your name, your telephone number, your address or your email address. Statistical data that we collect, for example, when you visit our website and that cannot be linked to you personally, does not fall under the definition of personal data.

• IP address of the requesting device

• Address of the accessed website and the requesting website
• Information about the browser and operating system used

The processing of this access data is necessary to enable you to visit the website and to ensure the continued operability and security of our systems. The access data is also temporarily stored in internal log files for the purposes described above, in order to compile statistical information on the use of our website, to further develop our website with regard to the usage patterns of our visitors (e.g., if the proportion of mobile devices used to access the pages increases) and for general administrative maintenance purposes of our website.

Data protection information on the use of our appointment portal (termin.value.ag)
On our website, we provide a web service for scheduling property inspections (hereinafter „appointment portal“) as a processor for various banks (hereinafter „partners“). With the appointment portal, you have the ability to arrange and set appointments with us to view a property, insofar as you have been named or otherwise made known to us in this regard by our partners as a contact person (e.g., as a customer of our partners, estate agent, property management company of the property, caretaker of the property, owner or tenant of the property, hereinafter „contact person“).
The prerequisite for using our appointment portal is therefore that one of our partners has commissioned us to view a property and you have been made known to us as the contact person for scheduling a viewing appointment. We will then send you an invitation link to the appointment portal along with an alphanumeric verification code, which you can use to register with the appointment portal in order to arrange an online viewing appointment with us.
When operating the appointment portal, we process the object data of the inspection objects (address, object type, etc.) as well as the names and contact data (in particular telephone number and email address) of the contact persons as a processor for our partners. This personal data is processed for the purpose of making the process of finding an appointment to view a property as simple and convenient as possible for all parties involved via the appointment portal.
The legal basis for the processing of this personal data required for the use of the appointment portal lies in the provision of the appointment portal for the above-mentioned purpose (fulfilment of contract pursuant to Article 6, Paragraph 1, lit. b of the GDPR).
The entire „appointment portal“ feature is protected by a login and end-to-end SSL encryption.
