2. Collection and storage of personal data; the nature and purpose of their use

a) When visiting the website

Whenever you access our website, the browser used on your end device automatically sends information to our website’s server. That information is temporarily stored in what is called a “log file”. The following information is thereby collected without any action on your part and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • Name of the accessed file
  • Date and time of access
  • Volume of data transferred
  • Notification whether access was successful
  • Description of the type of web browser used
  • Operating system used
  • Site visited previously
  • Provider
  • Your IP address

The above data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • To ensure a smooth-running website connection,
  • To ensure comfortable use of our website,
  • To analyse system security and stability, and
  • for further administrative purposes.

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest arises from the data collection purposes listed above. On no account will we use the collected data for the purpose of making inferences about your identity. We also use cookies as well as analysis and marketing services when you visit our website. You can find more detailed explanations on this subject under points 5 – 12 of this Data Protection Declaration.

b) When using our contact form

For questions of any kind, we offer the option of contacting us via a form provided on the website. In doing so, it is necessary to provide your name, a valid e-mail address and your specific enquiry so that we know who the enquiry is from and can answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily. The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after your request has been fulfilled, unless another legitimate basis (e.g., a specific order) justifies further processing.

Data processing for the purpose of establishing contact is carried out on the basis of your specific enquiry, pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR.

c) When using our newsletter

On our website, you have the option of subscribing to a free e-mail newsletter. If you register for the newsletter, the data from the input mask will be transmitted to us.

  • Name
  • E-mail address

In addition, the following data are collected on registration:

  • IP address of the accessing computer
  • Date and time of registration

Your consent to the data processing will be obtained in the course of the registration process and reference will be made to this Data Privacy Declaration. If you commission us with the provision of services and provide us with your e-mail address, it may subsequently be used to send you newsletters. In such a case, only direct advertising for our own similar goods or services will be sent via the newsletter.

No data are transferred to third parties in connection with the processing of data for sending out newsletters. The data are used exclusively for sending out the newsletter. The purpose of collecting the user’s e-mail address is to deliver the e-mail newsletter. The collection of other personal data during the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user’s email address will thus be stored for as long as their subscription to the newsletter is active.

Any other personal data collected during the registration process are usually deleted after a period of seven days.

The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. A link for this purpose can be found in each newsletter. The link also enables a user to revoke their consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process. The legal basis for processing data after the user has registered for the newsletter is the user’s consent (Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR). The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Art. 6 (1)(f) in conjunction with Section 7 (3) of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG).

d) When you place an order

In the event that you place an order with us, we will store your personal data – usually, in addition to your name, the contact details for invoicing, as well as the telephone number of, if necessary, a further contact person for processing the order. The storage period for these data will be in conformity with the applicable legal regulations. The basis for the data storage is Art 6 (1)(b), as well as Section14b of the German Turnover Tax Act (UStG).

In order to fulfil the contractual relationship, we may transfer contact details (usually only the name and mobile number) of the Customer and of the contractor commissioned by us (e.g., the contact details of the bus driver) to the other party involved, pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(b) of the GDPR; this may also include transfer to other EU countries (e.g., in the case of orders in Switzerland).

3. Data transfer

We will not transfer your personal data to third parties for any purposes other than those set out in this Data Protection Declaration. We will only transfer your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to this, pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(a) of the GDPR,
  • the data transfer is legally permissible and necessary for fulfilling the contractual relationship with you, pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(b) of the GDPR,
  • in the case that there is a legal obligation to transfer the data, pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(c) of the GDPR, and
  • the transfer is necessary to protect our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(f) of the GDPR and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-transfer of your data.

In some areas of our website, we use what are called “cookies”. Such file elements enable your computer to be identified as a technical device during your visit to this website in order to make it easier for you to use our services – also on repeat visits.

However, you usually have the option of setting your internet browser so that you are informed of the presence of cookies, allowing you to enable or disable them, or delete existing cookies.

Please use the Help function of your internet browser to obtain information on how to change these settings. We hereby draw your attention to the fact that individual functions of our website may not work if you deactivate the use of cookies.

Cookies do not allow a server to read private data from your computer, or the data stored by another server. They do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Unless specifically regulated below, we base our use of cookies on Art. 6 (1)(f) of the GDPR. The purpose of the processing is to improve the functioning of our website. It is therefore necessary for the protection of our legitimate interests.

5. Use of Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (see https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google Analytics uses “cookies” – text files that are placed on your computer and enable an analysis of the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will usually be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf, for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services to us relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data by Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; however, we hereby draw your attention to the fact that, in that case, you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected to Google and prevent the processing of those data by Google through downloading and installing the browser plugin, which is available at the following link: (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

We hereby draw your attention to the fact that Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” on this website, to ensure the anonymised collection of IP addresses (or what is called “IP masking”). You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the link below. An opt-out cookie will then be set, which prevents any further collection of your data when visiting this website. This procedure is particularly advisable when accessing our website via mobile devices. For further information on terms of use and data protection, please visit (www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.htm) or www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

We base the use of the aforementioned analysis tool on Art.6 (1)(f) of the GDPR: the data processing is carried out to analyse user behaviour and is therefore necessary for the protection of our legitimate interests.

6. Use of Facebook plugins

A Facebook “Share Button” from Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) is integrated into this page. You can recognise that button on this page by the Facebook logo.

The Facebook “Share Button” is set up in accordance with the data protection regulations. Only if you click on the Facebook “Share Button” on this page (and only then) will a direct connection established between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook will thereby receive the information that you have accessed a corresponding page of the online offering from your IP address. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible that Facebook may obtain and store your IP address. If you click on the Facebook “Share Button” while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our pages to your Facebook profile. In that case, Facebook can assign the visit to your user account. If you are a Facebook member and do not want information about your visit to our website to be passed on to Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

We hereby draw your attention to the fact that, as the provider of the website, we have no knowledge of the contents of the data transmitted or of its use by Facebook. You can find the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy in Facebook’s privacy policy at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

We base this use of data on Art. 6 (1)(f) of the GDPR: the said data processing is necessary for the needs-based design of our website and is therefore necessary for the protection of our legitimate interests.

8. Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on our website. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a website with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells YouTube which websites you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account first.

Whenever a YouTube video starts playing, the provider uses cookies that collect information on user behaviour.

Anyone who has deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad programme can expect to be free of such cookies while watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

Further information on YouTube’s data protection policy can be found in the provider’s privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-US
