We remove the last octet of the IP address immediately after it is collected. For this reason, we do not collect any personal information about your use of our website.

The data is processed in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our website and the defense against and pursuit of illegal attacks. The legal basis for the processing is Article 6 (1) 1 Sentence 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

  • your e-mail address and other information you provide by e-mail or contact form
  • the date and time of your message

We store this data as far as necessary to answer and fulfil your request or until we receive your request to delete your personal data. Please note that if you ask us to delete your personal data, we may not be able to answer and fulfil your request. Please also note that in some cases we may need to send messages containing personal data in order to protect our rights.

The legal basis for the processing is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. By contacting us and providing us with your personal data, you agree to the use of the personal data you have provided us with. You can revoke your consent at any time by sending us an informal e-mail.

3. Newsletter

If you order our newsletter, we will save the e-mail address you entered to send you our newsletter.

For sending our newsletter we use the services of “MailChimp”, a mailing platform operated by the provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (“MailChimp”). For this purpose we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp.

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other personal data described in this notice, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. For the transmission of personal data to countries outside the European Union, especially the USA, MailChimp guarantees an adequate level of protection according to the standard contractual clauses. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp may use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of the newsletters or for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them directly or pass them on to third parties.

The privacy policy of MailChimp can be found here:

Newsletters sent via MailChimp contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved by MailChimp’s server when the newsletter is opened. In the context of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading

behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times.

Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be allocated to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor Mail-Chimp’s intention to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us rather to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is your consent according to Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR, which is declared with the order of our newsletter. The data will be stored until you cancel the newsletter

During the registration process, you will be asked to provide personal data such as your name, address or contact details. We use this data to provide our services, to manage and process the bookings you have made and to contact you in this context.

Your personal data will be stored for as long as you keep the user account. In the case of booking co-working spaces or the provision of other services, the data is stored for the duration of the contract processing/service provision. In individual cases, data may be stored for longer periods if we have a legitimate interest in doing so, for example in cases of protecting our legal rights. Statutory storage periods remain unaffected.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use. The information generated by the cookies is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will, however, shorten your IP address within the member states of the European Union or within the various signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus make it anonymous.

The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

9. Google Maps

To be able to display interactive maps on our website, we use Google Maps, a service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

10. Social media, plugins and tools

With Shariff  

This website uses social media plugins (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, XING, LinkedIn, Tumblr). 

You can generally recognize such plugins by the respective social media logos. To ensure data protection on this website, we only use these plugins together with the so-called “Shariff” solution. This application prevents the plugins integrated on this website from transmitting data to the respective provider already upon you first entering the page. 

Only when you activate the respective plugin by clicking on the associated button is a direct connection to the social media provider’s server established. As soon as you activate the plugin, the respective provider receives the information that you have visited this website with your IP address. If you are logged into your respective social media account (e.g. Facebook) at the same time, the respective provider can assign your visit to our website to your user account. 

Activating the plugin constitutes consent within the meaning of Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

Our site uses content from the YouTube video portal. The service is provided by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. 

Our website has been set up so that YouTube-plugins are not automatically activated. If you activate YouTube content on our website, your browser establishes a direct connection to the YouTube servers to download the content from the YouTube servers. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google will receive information regarding which specific subpage of our website you have visited. If you are logged into a YouTube account while activating YouTube content on our website, YouTube will detect which specific subpage of our website you are visiting. This information will be collected by YouTube and Google and associated with your YouTube account.

If you do not wish for this type of information to be provided to YouTube and Google, you can prevent the transmission of these data by logging out of your YouTube account before accessing our website or by not activating the YouTube content. 

More information can be found in the YouTube privacy policy at 

We cannot exclude that by activating YouTube content, your personal data is being transferred outside the European Union, especially to the USA. YouTube, LLC and Google, Inc. have certified to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework regarding the collection and processing of personal data.
