• The website contains specific data entry forms at various points, which can consist of mandatory fields as well as fields of different content that must be filled in voluntarily.

This is how we collect your data 

We automatically collect the data that is generated when you visit our website, if necessary through the use of cookies. The same applies to the data arising from the use of the newsletter.

As long as we store your data

The duration of data storage depends primarily on the fulfilment of the purpose. This means that we store your data for exactly as long as we need it to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. In some cases, however, there are legal retention periods which provide for a different storage period. In these cases, we store the data for as long as required by the relevant law. Should data in a special context (e.g. Google Analytics) be deleted after another period, this is stated in the detailed data protection declaration.

If you have registered for our newsletter or provided us with an email address for sending newsletters by other means, we will use the email address you provided for this newsletter. If this email address is different from the one used for other communications, we will use it exclusively for the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter distribution list at any time. If you have entered an exclusive newsletter email address, we will delete it immediately after you unsubscribe.
As part of the newsletter dispatch, we can check whether you have read the newsletter
and which links within the newsletter you have clicked on. We use this data to make future newsletter more effective.
Further personal data will only be collected if you voluntarily provide this information, e.g. as

You will find a detailed explanation regarding data collection within such a form in the respective specific data protection notice, which you must confirm by opt-in before you can submit the form.
The fact that you have checked the opt-in box will be saved together with your request.

You have the right to revoke your consent with future effect at any time.
In addition, we transmit data to social networks through plug-ins (see under 4.))

Personal data is deleted if you revoke your consent to storage, if the data is no longer required for the purpose for which it was saved, or if the storage for other legal reasons is inadmissible. If we have transmitted your data, we will inform the recipient about the necessity of deletion.

4. Social media plug-ins

Our website contains social media plug-ins from various manufacturers. This basically concerns the operators of social networks whose processing site is located on the territory of the USA. The respective plug-In is recognisable by the logo of the manufacturer or its unique name in the drop-down menu, which we provide on each travel page under the „Share“ button. We use these plug-ins:
Facebook
Twitter
Google+
Whatsapp
As soon as you visit our website more frequently, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your internet browser and the servers of the operator. This will inform you that your IP address has been used to visit our website. If you are logged in to the relevant network, you can use the button to link to the corresponding content on our website in your profile. It is then possible to assign your visit to our website to your social network account. We, as the provider of our website, are not informed about the content of the transmitted data or the use of the data. The circumstances of this use result from the data protection declarations of the respective manufacturers:

https://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation
https://twitter.com/de/privacy
https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de
https://www.whatsapp.com/legal/#privacy-policy

In the event that you are a member of one of the social networks, but do not want this to receive data about you via our website and connect to your membership data, you must log out of the relevant network before you access our website.

5. YouTube Videos

We use embedded YouTube videos.
Opening Internet pages with embedded YouTube content creates a connection to "Google Double-Click", even if the video is neither clicked nor played. To better protect your information, we have embedded all YouTube videos on our site in advanced privacy mode (share/embed/show more/enable advanced privacy mode): the link "www.youtube.com" becomes www.youtube-nocookie.com).
Our website is equipped with a YouTube plugin. As soon as you visit pages equipped with YouTube plugin, a connection to a YouTube server is established. This server is informed which of our pages you have visited. If you're logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. If you log out of your YouTube account before visiting our pages, you can prevent this. For more information about how YouTube handles your user data, please visit www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, in the YouTube privacy policy of Google Inc.
