Privacy Policy



We are pleased to welcome you to the Medici Living Group website. Data protection is particularly important to us. If you wish to conclude a rental agreement through our website, your personal data needs to be processed. For any further processing of personal data, we will generally seek the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Medici Living Group. By means of this privacy policy, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects will be informed of their respective rights by means of this privacy policy.

The Medici Living Group is responsible for the processing of your data and has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to offer your Data the best protection possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. Definitions

The Medici Living Group's privacy policy is based on the terms used in the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - including the following terms:

  1. personal data: all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject", "you"). Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

  2. data subject: any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

  3. processing: any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures relating to personal data, such as the collection, collection, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, reading, retrieval, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, erasure or destruction. The restriction on processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.

  4. Profiling: any automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such data to evaluate or predict certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular with regard to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or relocation of that person.

  5. pseudonymisation: the processing of personal data in such a way that it can no longer be attributed to a data subject without the use of additional information.

  6. Data processor or controller: the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body which alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

  7. Processor: any natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes your personal data on our behalf.

  8. Recipient: any natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union law or the law of the Member States within the framework of a particular investigation mandate shall not be regarded as recipients.

  9. Third party: a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body other than the data subject, the data processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the data processor.

  10. Consent: any voluntary, informed and unequivocal statement of intent, made by the data subject in the specific case, in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative act by which the data subject indicates his or her consent to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.

4. Cookies


The Medici Living Group web pages use cookies (text files that are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser). This allows us to distinguish your browser from others. The use of cookies enables us to provide you with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies and to optimize our information and offers for you.

You can permanently refuse the setting of cookies at any time by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time. If you have deactivated the setting of cookies, you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent.


5. Collection of general data and information

Our website collects a series of general data and information each time you visit it. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. We may record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the Website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.


These general data and information do not permit us to draw any conclusions about you as a person. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. We therefore evaluate this anonymously collected data and information statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order ultimately to ensure an optimal level of protection for your data. Therefore, they are stored separately from all data provided by you.


6. Registration on our website

You have the opportunity to voluntarily register on our website. Which personal data is transmitted to us depends on the respective input form. The IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), the date and time of your registration are also stored. This data is stored in order to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to investigate criminal offences committed. Therefore, the storage of this data is necessary for our protection.


We then use your data to provide you with content or services that can only be offered to registered users. The data you enter will only be collected and stored for our internal use and purposes. We can, however, have your data passed on to one or more contractors, who also use it exclusively for their internal use, or if there is a legal obligation to pass it on or if it is used for criminal prosecution.

We are happy to provide you with information at any time about which personal data about you is stored and, at your request or notice, we will correct or delete it, provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary. All our employees are there for you in this regard.


7. Contact via the website

Due to legal regulations, our website contains the possibility of making a quick electronic contact, including a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address).

19. Payment method: data protection regulations for Sofortüberweisung as payment method

We have integrated components of Sofortüberweisung on this website. Sofortüberweisung is a payment service that enables cashless payment of products and services on the Internet. Sofortüberweisung represents a technical procedure by which the online merchant immediately receives a confirmation of payment.

The execution of the financial transaction is then automatically communicated to the online merchant.

The personal data exchanged by direct bank transfer is first name, surname, address, e-mail address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data required for payment processing. The purpose of data transmission is to process payments and prevent fraud. The controller will immediately transfer other personal data also if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer.

20. Legal basis of the processing of your Data

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR: serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract because you conclude a contract with us, which is necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing procedures are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible ( consideration 47, second sentence, GDPR).



21. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of your data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, it is in our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the well-being of all our employees.


22. Duration for which the personal data is stored

We store your data according to the respective legal time limits for storage. After the expiration of this period your data will be deleted, unless it is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract.


23. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of the failure to provide them

The provision of your data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or by contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that you provide us with your personal data and we process it afterwards. Failure to provide your personal data would result in the contract not being concluded. Please contact one of our employees at [email protected] Our employees will be happy to clarify whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract and what consequences the failure to provide personal data would have.


24. Existence of automated decision making

As a responsible company, we do not make decisions based on automatic decision making or any kind of profiling.
