Personal Data, purposes and legal bases

When you register on the StakeEstate platform, we initially ask for your first and last name, email, and password. This basic information is necessary for creating your individual StakeEstate account. We process this information under the legal basis of contract performance (Article 6, par. 1b GDPR).

After registration, you have the option to enter additional details such as your investment preferences. This optional information helps us prioritize which types of real estate projects to offer. We process this additional data under our legitimate interest to enhance the services offered to our members (Article 6, par. 1f GDPR).

Should you decide to invest in a real estate project by purchasing shares, this part of the process is facilitated based on your consent.

Disclosure and transfer of Personal Data

We may share some of your Personal Data with third parties, such as:

  • Legal advisors and facilitators for the formation of the co-ownership entity;
  • Real estate project management teams;
  • Web hosting service providers to manage our platform;
  • Financial advisors for contractual processes;
  • Online payment processing providers to handle share purchases and profit distributions;
  • Marketing service providers for customer engagement and service improvements;

In all these cases, whether these third party recipients act either as processors on our behalf, or as joint controllers, or as independent controllers, we ensure, to the maximum extent possible and within the limits of our responsibility as Data Controller, that they will treat as confidential your Personal Data that we disclose to them, they will take appropriate security measures, they will not further disclose this data and will generally comply with the legal data privacy framework. Under no circumstances do we assume responsibility for any unlawful use or processing of your Personal Data by the above recipients, which exceeds our limits of liability, as determined by applicable laws.

We do not transfer your Personal Information outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Should there ever be a need for such a transfer, you will be asked for your explicit consent in compliance with relevant legal provisions (Article 49 par. 1a GDPR).

Retention Period

We will retain your Personal Data for the minimum time necessary to fulfill the specific purposes for which we collected it. Typically, this means we will keep your information until you deactivate or delete your account on the StakeEstate platform. However, certain types of Personal Data may be kept for an extended period if mandated by legal obligations or if there is a legitimate reason for doing so.

Data protection and Information Security

We consider the confidentiality, integrity and security of your Personal Information as crucial in order to build trustful relationships with our users . Therefore, principles and measures of data privacy by default and by design are built in the very core of our business. We are continuously taking into account the latest technological advances, assessing risks and adopting improvements to our Information Security systems in order to keep your information and Personal Data secure. We are complying with professional Information Security standards and we are continuously improving our technical and organizational measures to provide adequate levels of data protection. 

Data subjects’ rights

As data subjects, you have the following rights with respect to your Personal Information:

  • the right of access;
  • the right of rectification;
  • the right of erasure (‘right to be forgotten’);
  • the right to restriction of data processing;
  • the right to data portability;
  • the right to object;
  • the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling and
  • the right to withdraw your consent, where the legal basis of processing is consent.

Please note that, depending on the purpose and the legal basis of the processing, some of the rights may not be exercisable in full. For example, we may not be able to fulfill a deletion request if there is a legal obligation for the retention of your Personal Data.

To exercise your rights, contact us at [email protected]. We will make every effort to respond promptly to your request. If more than one (1) month is needed to properly address your request due to its complexity, we will notify you about the delay and the reasons for it. In no case will it take more than two (2) months to respond to your request.

If you are unsatisfied with our response or believe that our processing of your Personal Information violates applicable privacy laws, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The contact information for the Croatian supervisory body is:
