2. Purpose and legal basis of processing

Your personal data is processed in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other possibly applicable data protection regulations.

2.1 On the basis of consent (pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO)

The purposes of the processing of personal data result from the granting of consent. Consent given can be revoked by you at any time with effect for the future. Consents granted before the DSGVO (25.05.2018) came into force can also be revoked. Processing that took place before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. Example: sending of a newsletter.

2.2 For the fulfillment of contractual obligations (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).

The purposes of data processing result, on the one hand, from the initiation of pre-contractual measures that precede a contractually regulated business relationship and, on the other hand, for the fulfillment of obligations arising from the contract concluded with you (e.g., sending of booking documents).

2.3 Due to legal requirements (pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 lit. c DSGVO) or in the public interest (pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 lit. e DSGVO).

The purposes of the data processing result from legal requirements or are in the public interest (e.g. compliance with retention obligations, proof of compliance with reference and information obligations).

2.4 Within the framework of the balancing of interests (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

The purposes of the processing result from the protection of our legitimate interests. It may be necessary to process the data provided by you beyond the actual performance of the contract. Our legitimate interest may be used to justify the further processing of the personal data, provided that your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms are not overridden. Our legitimate interest in individual cases may be: Assertion of legal claims, defense against liability claims, prevention of criminal acts.

3. General use of the website

3.1 Access data

When you use this website, information about your usage behavior and your interaction with us is automatically collected, as well as data about the terminal devices you use. We collect, store and use data about each access to our online offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name and URL of the file accessed, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, the message about successful access (HTTP response code), browser type and version, operating system, referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

We use this log data without attribution to your person or other profiling for statistical analysis for the purpose of the operation, security and optimization of our online offering, but also to anonymously record the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the extent and nature of the use of our website and services, as well as for billing purposes to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. This information allows us to provide personalized and location-based content and to analyze traffic, troubleshoot and resolve errors, ensure smooth website connectivity, and improve our services.

We reserve the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is required for security purposes or necessary for the provision of services or the billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. After the order process has been cancelled or after payment has been received, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of a criminal offense in connection with the use of our website. In addition, as part of your account, we store the date of your last visit (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking links, etc.).

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO (see section 2.4). Our interests in data processing are, in particular, to ensure the operation and security of the website, to ensure comfortable use and smooth connection establishment, to study the way visitors use the website, and to simplify the use of the website.

3.2 Contact form and e-mail contact

If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we store your information to process the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise. We only store and use further personal data if you consent to this or if this is legally permissible without special consent. In this case, the data processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. p. 1 lit. a DSGVO (see section 2.1) on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.

4. Storage period of personal data

Unless specifically stated, we store personal data only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes pursued or as provided for by the various storage periods provided for by law.

5. Passing on of data

In principle, we only use your personal data within our company. Here, those areas receive access to the personal data you have provided, which need them to fulfill the contractual and legal obligations, the processing described in point 3. Your data will only be passed on to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO,
  • the disclosure is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
  • in the event that there is a legal obligation for disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c DSGVO, as well as
  • this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you.

If and insofar as we involve third parties within the framework of the fulfillment of contracts (such as logistics service providers), we will receive this personal data only to the extent that the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.

In the case that we outsource certain parts of data processing („commissioned processing“) – for example, to data center service providers, EDP partners, booking systems, etc. – we contractually oblige commissioned processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of the DSGVO and the BDSG and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.

7. Data security

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.

Your personal data is transmitted encrypted with us. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. To protect your data, we maintain technical and organizational security measures, which we constantly adapt to the state of the art.

We also do not guarantee that our service will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are carefully backed up on a regular basis.

No fully automated decision-making (including profiling) pursuant to Art. 22 DSGVO is used to process the data you have provided.

9. Transfer of data to third countries or international organizations

A transfer of personal data provided by you to a third country or an international organization will not take place under any circumstances.

10. Change of our privacy policy

We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this data protection statement so that it always complies with the current legal requirements. However, this only applies with regard to statements on data processing. Insofar as the consent of the user is required or components of the data protection statement contain a regulation of the contractual relationship with users, the amendment of the data protection statement will only take place after the consent of the user.
