Purpose of data collection

The website can be used at any time without providing personal data. Only access data is stored without reference to the person. This data helps us to improve our performance and services and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the individual person. However, some of the benefits and services offered require users of the website to voluntarily disclose certain personal information on our website. In order to provide and process these benefits and services, we require the ability to contact the customer and other information. We use this information to fulfill our obligations to our users and customers, as well as for advertising for our own purposes.


Processing and use of data

Your data is processed and used by us in order to provide the services on the website in the best possible way. Among other things, the data helps us to process transactions requested by you and to make our website user-friendly.


Processing and use of personal data

We process and use your personal data only if you provide us with this data voluntarily. In most cases, this is done in connection with a service on our website (e.g. newsletter registration, Infoline callback assistant) or the provision of a service (e.g. booking or inquiry). User or customer data is used exclusively for the purpose of fulfilling our services and for the purpose of advertising our own offers.


Disclosure of personal data

Personal data that has been transmitted online will only be passed on to third parties with your prior consent or on the basis of a legal obligation. Legal obligations include, in particular, court or administrative orders to release data in connection with unlawful acts. Excluded from this is the disclosure of data insofar as this is directly necessary for the fulfillment of contractual obligations, such as the processing of payments to the credit institution commissioned with the payment or the disclosure of data to shipping companies commissioned with the delivery.


Use of cookies

We use cookies on our website to provide you with certain services on the website and to constantly improve the user-friendliness and functionality of our website. For these reasons, anonymized data of visitors to our website is collected and stored, and usage profiles are created using pseudonyms, as well as merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. Cookies are used, among other things, to recognize your Internet browser. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. With the help of cookies, it is possible to analyze the surfing habits of website visitors and to adapt the website more closely to the needs of users. Cookies remain stored on your computer even after your visit to our website, e.g. to save you the trouble of filling out web forms again on your next visit or to automatically recognize the personal settings of the user account.


Use of Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc ("Google"). The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link (tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en). You can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents future collection of your data when visiting this website. Here you can find the terms of use and privacy policy of Google Analytics.


Use of Facebook plugins

Some subpages of our website use plugins operated by Facebook. Facebook Inc. is a social network based in Menlo Park, California, USA. A plugin is a software module that is called up and integrated by a website when it is opened, thereby extending the functionality of the website. The Facebook plugins are marked with the Facebook logo or with the designation "Facebook Social Plugin". Subpages of our website on which this plugin is used automatically connect to Facebook's servers in the background. Facebook then sends the content of the plugin directly to the requesting browser. The plugin is thus integrated into the website and displayed in the user's browser. Since the browser of the visitor to our website also calls up the plugin from the Facebook server, Facebook learns that our website has been opened and transmits your IP address to Facebook. This is regardless of whether you have an account with Facebook or whether you are currently logged in as a Facebook user or not. Facebook associates your visit to our website with your Facebook account if you are a Facebook user and logged in to Facebook. As a Facebook user, you have agreed to the Terms of Use, Data Use Policy, and Cookie Use Policy. Facebook uses this information to determine certain interests and inclinations of users and, among other things, to use this data for advertising purposes.


Use of YouTube plugins

To display videos on our website, we use YouTube, a video portal based in San Bruno, California, USA whose owner is Google Inc. When you call up a video on our website, this video is automatically requested from a Youtube server. In this way, Youtube learns that this video has been requested and the IP address of the computer that requested this video. By using Youtube, you have accepted the terms of use as well as the privacy policy and agreed, among other things, that Youtube or Google may use cookies on your computer. Based on the videos you start, Youtube can generate a profile of your interests and inclinations and send you information and advertisements accordingly. Since Youtube is a service of Google Inc., the information collected via Youtube is also used by Google and used to target advertising to specific groups. These personal advertisements are not only displayed on Youtube, but may also be displayed by Google or by other websites that use Google's services. You can disable interest-based ads from Google.


Right to information

You have the right to request information about your personal data stored by us at any time and free of charge. You are also entitled to have the stored personal data corrected, blocked or deleted. Furthermore, you may revoke any consent you have given (e.g. to receive the newsletter) at any time. If you have any further questions or suggestions on the subject of data protection or require information on stored personal data, please send us an e-mail, a letter or call us.
