Your data will not be sold, rented or made available to third parts. In certain cases, access to your data will be given to certain providers that provide services to our company, such as sending newsletters, storing data or web pages, but in no case will they process the data for their own purposes.

You can request the list of the categories of providers that may have access to your data due to the provision of a service to the address barcelona.dp@engelvoelkers.com.

6. CONSERVATION PERIODS

Your data will be kept for the period strictly necessary to achieve the purposes of the treatment, without prejudice to its conservation for making it available to the competent authorities and to deal with claims.

In this case, the data will be kept blocked until the expiration of the limitation period, at which time they will be deleted.

In particular, it is reported that the company will keep for a period of ten years the documentation that formalizes compliance with the obligations established in Law 10/2010, of April 28th, on the prevention of money laundering and the financing of the terrorism, proceeding after it to its elimination.

After five years from the termination of the business relationship or the execution of the occasional operation, the documentation kept will only be accessible by the internal control bodies of the obliged subject, including the technical prevention units, and, where appropriate, those charged with their legal defense.

Likewise, it is reported that the company may keep your data duly anonymized for statistical or market study purposes, whenever possible, without prejudice to the due blocking to comply with any applicable legal obligation.


7. PREPARATION OF PROFILES

Any decision regarding primary treatment will be based on a manual process. We do not make automated decisions in relation to the real estate brokerage process and we do not create profiles either.

However, for some services, we may process your personal data using automated means. This means that certain decisions are made automatically without human intervention. For example, targeting you based on whether you are interested in certain sections of the Engel & Völkers website.

Likewise, we can create a profile by analyzing your behavior on the web, showing you products that may be of interest to you, based on the preferences you have shown by browsing, or information obtained through cookies.

The newsletters may be adapted and personalized according to the interests of the users, either based on the products and services requested, or based on the data that we can deduce or obtain from their browsing, interest in certain content, reaction to our communications, among others.

Said personalization is carried out in a partially automated way, in the sense that the company determines the personalization parameters, but the technological platform is the one that generates the user's profile.

We do not send general communications that are not segmented through the above procedure, since we consider that it is of interest, both for the company and for the user, to receive relevant information, and because not segmenting it would not alter the number of communications received, but just their content. In this sense, if any user does not wish to be segmented, please do not subscribe to these communications.
