B. Data processing

What is personal data and what does data processing mean?

Personal data are all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person that can be identified directly or indirectly.
Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in connection with personal data:

namely the collection, collection, organisation, arrangement, storage, adaptation or modification, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction. We process data as part of the operation of our website. The processing of the data also includes disclosure by transmission. For data transfers to the USA, the EU-US Privacy Shield has been approved by the EU Commission. In it, the Commission certified that the guarantees for the transfer of data to the USA on the basis of the EU-US Privacy Shield comply with data protection standards in the EU. As far as we transmit data to the USA, we have marked the participation of our service providers in the EU-US Privacy Shield. The data concerned, processing purposes, legal bases, recipients and transfers to third countries are listed below:

a) Log file
We log your visit to our website. The following data is processed: Name of the website accessed, date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, the browser type and version, the operating system you are using, the referrer URL (the previously visited website), your IP address and the requesting provider. This is necessary to ensure the security of the website. We process the data accordingly on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f) DSGVO. The log file will be deleted after seven days, unless it is required for clarification or to prove concrete violations of the law that have become known within the retention period.

b) Hosting
Within the framework of hosting, all data to be processed in connection with the operation of this website is stored. This is necessary to enable the operation of the website. We process the data accordingly on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f) DSGVO. To provide our online presence, we use services of web hosting providers, to which we transmit the above-mentioned data.

c) Contact and booking enquiries
If you contact us, your data (name, contact data, if given by you) and your message will be processed exclusively for the purpose of processing and handling your inquiry. These data are processed by us on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 b) DSGVO or Art. 6 Para. 1 f) DSGVO to process your request.

d) Newsletter
In order to provide you with regular information about our company and our offers, we offer to send you a newsletter. With your registration for the newsletter we process the data you have entered (e-mail address and other voluntary information). The newsletter will be sent by registration on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO. Subscription to the newsletter takes place in the so-called double opt-in procedure. To prevent misuse, we will send you an e-mail after your registration asking you to confirm your registration. In order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements, your registration will be logged. This affects the storage of the time of registration and confirmation as well as your IP address. We use service providers to send the newsletter, to whom we send the above-mentioned data.

e) Customer account, registration and use
If you open a customer account, you agree that your inventory data (name, address, e-mail address, bank details) as well as your usage data (user name, password) are stored. This allows us to identify you as a customer and allows you to manage your orders. Your data will be processed on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO.

f) Purchase completion
We process your order data to process the sales contract. The processing of the data is carried out accordingly on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 b) DSGVO. We transmit your address data to the company commissioned with the delivery. If it is necessary to process the contract, we will also send your e-mail address or your telephone number to the company responsible for the delivery in order to agree a delivery date (advice). We transmit your transaction data (name, date of order, method of payment, date of dispatch and/or receipt, amount and recipient of payment, if applicable bank details or credit card data) to the payment service provider commissioned to process the payment.

g) Cookies, website analysis and marketing
To enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies. These are short data packets that are stored on your end device and exchanged with other providers. Some of the cookies we use are deleted immediately after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal and make it possible to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). How, you can find out e.g. here: AllAboutCookies.org. In this case, you may have to make some settings manually each time you visit a page and accept the impairment of some functions. We use cookies in connection with the following functionalities:

aa) Google Analytics
We use “Google Analytics”, a web analysis service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We use the stored information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for website operators and to provide other services associated with website use. We process the data thus obtained on the basis of our overriding interest in the optimal marketing of our online offer in accordance with Art.6 Para. 1 f) DSGVO. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Please note that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp()”. This shortens IP addresses before they are sent to a server in the USA. A direct personal reference in connection with the stored data is thus usually excluded. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a server in the USA and shortened there. You can object to the collection of data at any time with effect for the future by using the deactivation add-on for browsers from Google Analytics at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Please also note the notes on the use of Google data in the Google Partner Network at: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/ and http://www.google.de/privacy_ads.html

h) Integration of external content
We use external dynamic content to optimize the presentation and offer of our website. When visiting the website, an API is automatically used to make a request to the server of the respective content provider, where certain log data (e.g. the IP address of the user) is transmitted. The dynamic content is then transmitted to our website and displayed there. We use external content in connection with the following functionalities:

aa) Integration of YouTube videos
We have posted videos from YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (“YouTube”). When the videos are played, log data is transferred to YouTube servers in the USA. This processing is carried out on the basis of our overriding legitimate interest in optimal marketing of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f) DSGVO.

YouTube is certified at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

bb) Google Maps
We use Google Maps to provide you with an interactive map. When the map is displayed, data, including your IP address and your location, is transferred to the Google server in the USA and stored there. This processing takes place because of our predominantly justified interest in an optimal marketing of our offer according to Art. 6 Para. 1 f) DSGVO.

C. Duration of data storage

We only store personal data for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which they are processed or if your consent has been revoked. As far as legal storage obligations have to be observed, the storage period for certain data can be up to 10 years irrespective of the processing purposes.
