2. Purposes and legal bases for processing personal data
Estmak Capital processes personal data only to the minimum extent required to provide its services. Any processing of personal data has a specific and limited purpose and a legal basis, which are described in more detail below.
In situations where the legal basis for the processing of personal data is the legitimate interest of Estmak Capital, then the latter has carefully analysed the respective processing activities and has ascertained that your interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms will not be disproportionately affected and that your personal data will only be processed to the minimum extent necessary.
The purposes for which personal data are processed and the legal bases for the processing are described in more detail below.
2.1. Concluding and performing customer contracts
The principal activities of Estmak Capital involve investment activities, the development of real estate, and the provision of related services, including leasing and sales. In this context, Estmak Capital advises its customers on real estate matters, carries out pre-contractual negotiations with them, and may enter into various types of contracts, such as consultancy, booking, and sales contracts. In the course of such activities, Estmak Capital may process your contact and payment details (given name and surname, personal identification number, bank account details, email address and correspondence between you and Estmak Capital, telephone number, country of residence).
The legal basis for the processing of personal data described in this section is the obligation to perform the contract concluded between Estmak Capital and the customer or the need to take steps prior to the conclusion of the contract (Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR).
2.2. Marketing activities
Estmak Capital may publish on its website and social media accounts materials promoting the services of Estmak Capital and its partners, including photos and videos that may also depict people (for example, videos depicting the real estate development process). The purpose of such data processing is to introduce the services offered by Estmak Capital to potential customers.
If the persons in the photos and videos are identifiable, the consent of the data subject is a prerequisite and legal basis for the processing of personal data for this purpose (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). The data subject has the right to withdraw their consent at any time by sending a request to this effect by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have given your relevant consent to Estmak Capital, we will occasionally send you newsletters and other information relating to the services of Estmak Capital that may be of interest to you. The legal basis for sending newsletters is the consent of the data subject (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time by clicking on the ‘Unsubscribe’ button located next to the newsletter . You can also unsubscribe from newsletters by sending us a request by email to email@example.com.
Please note that the withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of data processing carried out based on the previous and valid consent.
2.3. Ordering services and products from partners
Estmak Capital purchases the goods necessary for the provision of its services and outsources services to partners. For this purpose, Estmak Capital processes the names and contact details (email address, telephone number) of the contact persons of the partners and, if necessary, data on professional position, education, qualifications, and employer.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR (processing of data for the preparation and performance of a contract). In cases where Estmak Capital approaches a product or service provider itself, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, i.e. legitimate interest, which is the need of Estmak Capital to order goods and services from various market participants in order to provide its services. Estmak Capital also processes the personal data of the contact persons of its partners only to the minimum extent necessary in order to minimise the interference with the interests of data subjects.
2.4. Complying with legal obligations
In certain cases, Estmak Capital needs to process personal data in order to comply with its legal obligations. Such situations may include, for example, fulfilling accounting obligations, responding to queries from public authorities, fulfilling obligations under the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Prevention Act, and notifying supervisory authorities and individuals of breaches and suspected breaches.
In such situations, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is the need to comply with a legal obligation of the controller (Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR).
3. Retention of personal data
• Personal data processed in connection with the conclusion and performance of customer contracts
The relevant personal data is generally retained for the duration of the customer contract and, after the termination of the customer contract, until the expiry of the statutory limitation period for potential claims. Personal data processed in the course of pre-contractual negotiations or advice which have not ended with the conclusion of the customer contract (e.g. data processed in the course of advice and quotations) will be kept for 3 (three) years from the end of the respective negotiations.
• Personal data processed in the course of marketing activities
The personal data concerned will be kept until the need for the processing ceases to exist, but no longer than the withdrawal of the consent on which the specific marketing activities were legally based.
• Personal data of contact persons of partners
The relevant personal data is retained for the duration of the cooperation contract and, after the termination of the cooperation contract, until the expiry of the statutory limitation period for potential claims.
In order to comply with legal obligations and in other exceptional cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary for a longer period than specified above, including:
(a) to fulfil the legal obligations of Estmak Capital;
(b) for accounting reasons;
(c) for reasons related to the realisation of potential claims.
For example, Estmak Capital retains original accounting documents containing personal data (e.g. invoices) for 7 (seven) years from the end of the financial year in which the accounting entry in question was made. In order to enable the filing of claims or the filing of objections to potential claims against Estmak Capital, the latter may store personal data for up to 3 (three) years in accordance with the limitation periods for claims, up to 10 (ten) years in the case of intentional infringement, and up to the final resolution of pending disputes.
