Data Protection Declaration
The protection of personal data is an important concern to us.
This is why we process personal data in accordance with valid European and national legal regulations.
The following declaration gives an overview of which type of data can be collected, in which way this data can be used and passed on, which security measures we take to protect your data and in which manner and means you can receive information about data given to us.
Article 6 section 1 S. lit. a) EU general data protection regulations (GDPR) serves as the legal basis as far as we obtain permission of the affected person for processing procedures of personal data. Article 6 section 1 S. lit. b) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing personal data which is required to fulfil a contract whose contract party is the affected person. This is also valid for processing procedures which are required to execute pre-contract measures.
Article 6 section 1 S. lit. c) GDPR serves as the legal basis if processing personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation which we are subject to. Article 6 section 1 S. lit. f) GDPR serves as the legal basis if processing is required to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, basic rights and the fundamental freedoms of the affected person do not outweigh the aforementioned interest.
The personal data of the affected person are deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer exists. In addition, storage can be made if this was foreseen by the European or national legislator in the Union’s legislation decrees, laws or other regulations which we are subject to. Blocking or deletion of data is also made if the storage period specified by the above mentioned standard expires, unless a requirement exists to continue storage of data for a contract conclusion or fulfilment of a

§ 2 Definitions
The data protection declaration is based on terminology which was used by the European regulators in the decree of the EU general data protection regulation (hereinafter
called “GDPR”). The data protection declaration shall be easy to read and understandable. To ensure this the following important definitions are explained:
a) Personal data is information which concerns identified or identifiable natural persons (hereinafter called “affected person”). A natural person is seen as identifiable who
can be directly or indirectly identified, in particular by means of association to an identifier such as a name, to a code number, to location data, to online identification or to
one or several special features which are an expression of physical, physiological, genetic, psychic, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.
b) An affected person is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the person responsible for the processing.
c) Processing is any executed activity with or without the help of automated processes or any such set of processes in conjunction with personal data such as collection,
recording, organisation, arranging, storage, modification or changing, selection, searching, using, disclosure through transfer, distribution or another form of provision,
comparison or link, restriction, deletion or destruction.
d) Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data which consists of processing this personal data to assess certain personal aspects relating to a natural
person, in particular aspects regarding work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, place of residence or to
analyse or predict the change of location of this natural person.
e) Pseudonymising is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data cannot be associated to a specific affected person without the help of additional
information as far as this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be
allocated to an identified or identifiable natural person.
f) Responsible or responsible person for processing is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other offices which decide about the purpose and means of the
personal data processing solely or together with others. If the purposes and means of this processing are prescribed by Union right or the right of the member state then
the responsible person can or could specify the specific criteria of its designation according to Union right or the right of the member states.
g) Contract processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other offices which processes personal data on behalf of the responsible person.
h) Recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other offices which publish personal data, regardless of whether it refers to a third party or not. Authorities
which possibly receive personal data within a specific enquiry mandate according to Union rights or the right of member states do not, however, count as recipients.
i) Third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other offices apart from the affected person, the responsible person, the contract processor and the
persons who are authorised under the direct responsibility of the responsible person or the contract processor, to process personal data.
j) Consent is any expression voluntarily given by the affected person for the specific case in an informed manner and unmistakably in the form of a statement or in another
unambiguous affirmative act which the affected person insinuates that he agrees with the processing of his personal data.

a) allow the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this
the IP address of the user must remain stored for the period of the session.
b) to optimise the content of our website and also the advertisements
c) to guarantee the functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website

The storage of logfiles is made to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information
An assessment of the data for marketing purposes is not made in this context. In these cases there also exists a justified interest in data processing according to article 6
section 1 S. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for achieving the purpose of its collection – in this case with the end of the use process if storage of IP addresses in
logfiles is made:
In the case of storage of data in logfiles this is at the latest after seven days. A further storage is not possible. In this case IP addresses will be deleted or anonymised so
that allocation of the client called is not possible.
Collection of data for access of the website and the storage of data in logfiles is absolutely necessary for the operation of the Internet page, which is why no objection

mask and transmitted to us and stored. The following data is collected:
a) Name of orderer
b) Name of arriving guest
d) Email address
e) Telephonef) Payment data
g) IP address

a) Collection agency, as far as the payment must be collected (forwarding name, address, order details)
b) The bank for collection of the payment as far as the payment is made via direct debit or credit card.
c) Immediate transfer, Sofort GmbH, as far as the payment is made via immediate transfer
d) PayPal Holding , Inc., if the payment is made via Paypal
Article 6 section 1 S. 1 lit. b) GDPR is the legal basis.
Article 6 section 1 S. 1 lit. a) GDPR is the legal basis regarding processing voluntary data.
The mandatory details are required to fulfil the contract with the user. We therefore use the data to answer your enquires, to process your order and if necessary to check
credit rating and/or collect a debt and also for purposes of technical administration of the website.
Voluntary information is made to prevent misuse and if necessary to investigate criminal offences. We can also process data provided by you to inform you about further
interesting products in our portfolio or to send you emails with information.
The data is deleted as soon as collection is no longer required to achieve the purpose. Due to commercial and fiscal requirements we must store your address, payment
and order details for a period of ten years after execution of the contract. If a continuing obligation exists between us and the user, we store the data during the whole of
the contract period and also for a period of ten years afterwards (see above). Regarding voluntary data provided we delete the data three years after execution of the
contract as far as no further contract with the user has been concluded in this period; in this case the data will be deleted three years after execution of the last contract.
If data is required to fulfil a contract or to execute pre-contractual measures, premature deletion of data is only possible if no contractual or legal obligations to delete
prevent this. Otherwise you are free to have personal data, which was provided at the registration, completely deleted out of the database of the person responsible for the
processing. At any time upon request the person responsible for the processing can give information which personal data about you has been stored. In addition the person responsible for processing corrects or deletes personal data on request or after indication by the affected person if no legal retention obligations oppose this.
You can write to the responsible person or the data protection officer at any time via email or by post according to § 1 and request the deletion/amendment of the data.
§ 6 Forwarding personal data to third parties
This website can contain links to external sites. We ourselves are responsible for our content. We have no control of the content of external links and therefore are not
responsible, in particular we do not adopt their content as our own.
If you are routed to an external site, the data protection declaration available on this site is valid. We gladly receive information from you regarding illegal activities on our
site or if content is conspicuous. In this case we will check the content and react accordingly.
§ 7 Contact form or email contact
A contact form is available on our internet site which can be used to contact us electronically. If you use this option, the data entered into an input mask are transmitted to
us and stored. Your permission will be obtained for data processing in the course of the dispatching process and you will be referred to this data protection declaration.
Alternatively contact can be made through the email address provided. In this case the personal data transmitted with the email will be stored.
If it concerns information on communication channels (for example email address, telephone number), you also permit us to contact you if necessary through this communication channel in order to answer your issue. In this respect no data will be passed on to third parties. The data is only used for processing the conversation. If a user’s permission exists Article 6 section 1 S. lit. a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of data. Legal basis for the data processing which is transmitted when sending an email is article 6 section 1 S.1 lit .f) GDPR.Legal basis for processing is in addition article 6 section 1 S.1 lit .b) GDPR if the email contact aims to conclude a contract.
Processing of personal data from the input mask only serves to process the first contact. We obviously use the data from the email request exclusively for the purpose you
intended when contacting us. In the case of contact by email, answering the email means a legitimate interest exists in processing data. Other personal data processed
during the dispatch process serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The data is deleted as soon as collection is no longer required to achieve the purpose. This is then the case for personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those transmitted by email if the corresponding conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is then finished if it can be seen from the circumstances that the affected issue has been finally clarified.
You have the option at any time to withdraw your permission to the processing of personal data. If you contact us by email, you can withdraw your permission to store your personal data at any time. In such a case the conversation will not be continued.
Please contact the responsible person according to § 1 via email or by post concerning the withdrawal of permission/objection to storage. All personal data stored in the course of the contact will be deleted in this case
§ 8 Web analyse by Google Analytics (with pseudonymisation)

Google Analytics with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“. The software is set such that the IP addresses are not fully stored but only in abbreviated form. In this way an
allocation of the abbreviated IP address to the accessing computer is not possible. The full IP address will only be transmitted to the Google server in the USA in
exceptional cases and abbreviated there. However, the IP address transmitted within Google Analytics from your browser will not be joined with other Google data. Legal
basis for the processing of personal data is article 6 section 1 S.1 lit .f) GDPR.
In exceptional cases in which personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
Google can, on our behalf, use this information to evaluate the use of the website by you and to prepare reports on the website activities. Through the evaluation of the

§ 9 Social Media Plugins
On these pages social plugins of the social network Facebook (Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) are used. This plugin allows you to set a bookmark on these pages and thus share these with other subscribers of social networks. You can recognise this plugin by the Facebook logo or the typical “Like button”. A summary of Facebook plugins can be found under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. We use the so-called double click solution. This means that if you visit our site initially strictly no personal data is forwarded to Facebook. We provide you the possibility to communicate with Facebook via the button. Facebook only receives information that you have accessed the website if you click the marked box and thus activate it. Forwarding data is made regardless of whether you have an account with Facebook and are logged in there. a) If you click the Facebook “Like button” when you are logged into your Facebook account, the contents of this page can be linked to the Facebook profile. In this case Facebook can also allocate the pages visited to your user account. If you click the activated button and for example link the page, Facebook also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend to you that you regularly log out after using a social network, in particular before activating the button so that you can avoid such an assignment to your profile. b) If you are not a member of Facebook or if you have logged out of Facebook before visiting this site there is still the possibility that Facebook finds out your IP address and stores it. If you do not wish that Facebook can assign the visit to our site to your Facebook user account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our internet site and you should not activate the plugin. The following data is hereby generally transmitted to Facebook: – browser-related data such as IP address, browser type, operating system, time and date of request, website visited. – User ID (for registered Facebook account) The IP addresses are immediately anonymised after collection according to Facebook in Germany. By activating the plugin your personal data is transmitted to Facebook and stored in the USA: Since Facebook carries out data collection in particular through cookies, we recommend to you to delete all cookies through the security settings of your browser before clicking the greyed out boxes. We have neither control over the data collected and data processing activities nor are we aware of the full scope of the data collection, the purpose of the processing and the storage periods. We also do not have information on deletion of data collected by Facebook. Facebook stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses this for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is made (also for users not logged in) in particular to depict needs-based advertising and in order to inform other users of social networks about youractivities on our website. Regarding the plugins, we offer you the option to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and design our website more interestingly for you as user. Legal basis for the use of the plugins is article 6 section 1 S.1 lit .a GDPR. Facebook is subject to the EU-US-Privacy-Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EUUSFramework. You have the right of objection against creating this user profile, in order to exercise your right of objection you must contact Facebook.
