8. Is there an obligation for me to provide my data?
Within the scope of our business relationship, you only have to provide the personal data that is required for the establishment, implementation and termination of a business relationship or which we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data, we will usually have to refuse the conclusion of the contract or the execution of the order or will no longer be able to execute an existing contract and may have to terminate it.
9. Is there automated decision-making in individual cases?
For the establishment and implementation of the business relationship, we generally do not use automated decision-making pursuant to Art. 22 EU-GDPR. Should we use these procedures in individual cases, you will be informed of this separately if this is required by law.
10. Will my data be used for profiling in any way?
If you have booked a trip with us, we process your data partly automatically with the aim of evaluating your potential interest in certain products, offers and services ("profiling" according to Art. 4 No. 4 EU-GDPR). The evaluation is carried out using statistical and market research procedures, procedures taking into account your previously booked trips, services and your booking behaviour. We take into account your booking history with us as well as characteristics of the bookings and booked trips, products and services. These characteristics include booking frequency, booking channel, added and cancelled services, booking lead time, travel price, type of travel, destination, number of travellers and characteristics of the main product booked, such as star category and amenities. As a rule, a selection of the characteristics mentioned is used with equal weighting, but they can also be used in total with a weighting not specified in advance.
We use the results of these analyses for market and opinion research, a targeted and needs-based customer approach and for acquiring new customers. This form of data use is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-GDPR due to the overriding legitimate interest in direct advertising, market and opinion research and new customer acquisition.
With your consent, we collect data on some of our websites and link these with data from other sources in order to form and enrich pseudonymised user profiles and to create target group segments on their basis. The profiles and segments are used for analysis purposes and to offer you content and offers based on your interests on our portals, in the newsletter and on other communication channels, and to make our online advertising activities on third-party sites more individual and interesting for you based on your user profile. The data collected on the website includes technical characteristics and information about your visit path, search behaviour, product contact and bookings as well as pseudonymised IDs such as cookie IDs. The user profiles and segments created are transferred to our systems for online advertising activities, onsite design and newsletter communication.
If you have given us separate consent, we use the ID+ service of Zeotap GmbH, which aggregates IDs of users from different participating companies into one universal ID. You can find more information about this in the Zeotap section.
In order to assess the potential risk of non-payment, we use information we have about fraudulent behaviour and publicly available information to forecast the likelihood of your payment defaulting on the booking you have made.
For this risk probability calculation, contact data, bank details, date of birth are processed with equal weighting using public address data and bank connection data provided to us by our partner Crif GmbH. An allocation is made to statistical groups of persons who have exhibited similar behaviour in the past.
The results support us in individual decision-making to prevent fraud damage and follow up on legal claims.
This data processing is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f EU-GDPR due to the overriding legitimate interest in the prevention of fraud damage and the pursuit of legal claims.

Consent Management System
Use of Consent Management System to manage and document consent and settings for data collection and cookies
As a user, you can decide yourself about the use of cookie-based services / technologies and the data collection by them on our portal and adjust or withdraw them at any time with effect for the future. This is possible via an information and consent banner that is displayed on first visits and when the services are changed, as well as via the cookie settings that can be accessed at any time via a link at the bottom of every page. As part of aEU-GDPR-compliant approach, we only use services requiring consent after you have given your prior consent. You can also use our website without this consent.
For the provision of this setting and consent function within the meaning of theEU-GDPR and for the explanation of the use of cookie-based technologies, we use a so-called Consent Management System of the company Usercentrics, GmbH, Rosental 4, 80331 Munich. In addition, this system is used to document your decisions for your browser, with which we fulfil the data protection requirements of the documentation and verification obligation.
As a user, you have other, alternative ways such as browser extensions, settings, adblockers or opt-out links of individual tools to prevent the setting of cookies or the collection of data by services. We would like to point out that these ways are not equivalent to the use of a consent management system.
Browser extensions, settings and adblockers can prevent cookies and, where applicable, data collection by services. However, you cannot decide for yourself in all cases what you want to allow or prevent. In doing so, it is possible that your decisions made via the Consent Management System are overridden or even the necessary use of the Consent Management System is prevented. In addition, extensions and adblockers can cause unexpected problems with the basic functions of the portal.
If you use the aforementioned alternative ways, documentation of your settings and decisions is not possible for us.
Website Analytics and Tracking
When you visit our website, information may be stored on your computer in the form of cookies in order, for example, to recognise visitors' preferences and to be able to optimally design the website accordingly. This helps us, for example, to facilitate navigation and to achieve a high level of user-friendliness.
Cookies are text files that are stored on the user's hard disk when visiting a website. They are harmless to your computer and cannot be seen by third parties. They allow information to be retained for a certain period of time and identify the user's computer.
If you accept our cookies, they remain on your computer for a period of 30 days unless you delete them before then. During an online booking, cookies are stored temporarily for the course of the booking. These are automatically deleted after 30 minutes of inactivity or after closing the website.
You can object to the collection and storage of your data via this service at any time. If you want to avoid the activation of cookies, deactivate them in your browser. Please note, however, that switching off cookies may restrict the use of the website and the services offered.
By using the web analytics tool Adobe Analytics, we measure the reach, usage and performance data of our website to improve the design, functioning and offering of our website. We collect anonymous information about the content viewed, the type of browser and device used, and product searches, views and bookings made to understand product demand and detect fraud attempts and artificial traffic from bots or crawlers. We also collect technical performance data and functional errors.
Cookies (text files) that are stored on your computer are also used. The information collected is transferred to a server of Adobe in Ireland and stored there in strict compliance with EU directives. Under no circumstances can conclusions be drawn about specific natural persons. We also ensure that the IP address is anonymised before geolocation. For this purpose, we use IP anonymisation by default in the server settings. After geolocation has been recorded, the IP address is rendered unrecognisable by (x.x.x.x.) and is no longer available. The IP address is not used in any other way or passed on to third parties.
You can find data protection information on Adobe Analytics here:
Adobe Analytics is used on the basis of the legal basis § 25 para. 2 no. 2 German Telecommunication Telemedia Data Protection Act(TTDSG) in conjunction with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. fEU-GDPR on the basis of the overriding legitimate interest to prevent fraud, to monitor errors in website functions and to evaluate the reach of the portal.
One way to object to web analysis by Adobe Analytics is to set an opt-out cookie. This informs Adobe that your data may not be stored or used for web analytics purposes. Please note that with this solution, web analytics will only not take place as long as the opt out cookie is stored by the browser. If the cookie is no longer stored by the browser, your objection expires. There is also no documentation of your decision and the opt out cookie may contradict your decision in the Consent Management System.
If you would like to set the opt out cookie now, please click here:
ADOBE LAUNCH TAG MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
We use a tag management system from Adobe to control the use of analysis and online marketing software on our website and to improve the technical performance of our website. The tag management system controls, according to definable rules, which and in which form the software components (tags) used on the website and explained in this data protection declaration are used. In this way, we ensure that only the named tags are used and that these only collect data to the extent explained here.
Via the tag management system, data is passed on to the aforementioned tags and in the form explained. Cookies may also be used in the process. However, the data is not stored in the tag management system.
The use of the Adobe Launch Tag Management System is based on the legal basisEU-GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b and c and can therefore not be deactivated via our Consent Management System.
However, the options of the Consent Management System are available to you to object to the collection of data via the tools played out by the Tag Management System.

Referral and Linking to Partner Sites
On our website, we offer you links to the websites of our partners, where you can find further products and services related to travel. When using the links, you will be forwarded to the respective partner website without user data being transmitted from our website to that of the partner. After using the link, you will find yourself on the portal of the respective partner, which is the responsibility of the partner.
Referral and Linking to Social Media Networks
Our internet presences on social media platforms serve to provide users as customers and interested parties with information about our services and offers. In addition, the social networks provide a forum for communication between users and our company.
Through the use of social media, personal data of the users is forwarded to the providers of social networks. Please note that the data of participating persons may therefore also be stored and processed outside the European Union. This results in a different legal situation than regulated by the GDPR. However, providers who have agreed to the Privacy Shield agreement between the USA and the EU thereby undertake to comply with the data protection principles contained therein. In addition, user data is usually used by the operators of social networks for market research and advertising purposes. By means of surfing behaviour and interests derived from it, profiles can be created which serve the purpose of, for example, presenting the user with tailored advertisements within and outside the network. In the context of market research, so-called cookies are stored by the user's browser. These are small text files that can be deleted via the browser settings. In addition, further data may be stored in the user profiles, especially if the user has an account with the respective social media platform and is logged in.
The legal basis for the storage and processing of personal data is legitimate interest with regard to the provision of beneficial information for customers and interested parties as well as beneficial communication with users within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If the user consents to the processing of personal data by means of a tick box or confirmation via a button, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO applies.
Detailed information on the storage and processing of user data as well as on the given objection options (opt-out right) can be found on the pages of the respective providers, which are listed below.
If you have any questions or wish to assert your user rights in the context of social media platforms, the respective network provider is the right contact. This is because only the provider has full access to the stored user data. Therefore, only the respective provider can provide detailed information and, if necessary, initiate measures to change or delete the data. If you need advice or support, you can contact us at any time.

Integration of Google Maps
The map service Google Maps is connected to our website via an API. The provider of the service is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. In order to use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your Ip address. This information is usually transferred to Google servers in the USA and stored. As the provider of this site, we have no influence on the data transfer.
We use Google Maps on our websites to present our offers in an appealing way and to show you the exact location of our products (legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. fEU-GDPR).
Integration of Youtube
Plugins from the YouTube website operated by Google are used on our website. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. Such integration takes place exclusively in the extended data protection mode of YouTube (more information at: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/171780?hl=de), in which no cookies are used. As long as there is no interaction with the video, no data is collected by the service. If a user clicks on an embedded YouTube video, data is again collected and further data processing for analysis purposes is carried out by Google LLC and its affiliated companies. The extended data protection mode prevents YouTube from connecting to Google's DoubleClick advertising network. When videos are played, the service collects browser and device settings, IP address, browser identifier, date, time and referral URL of the request to play the video, name of the video and playback time, as well as system activity and crash reports for the purposes of providing, maintaining and improving the services and measuring performance.
If you have a Google account and are logged in to it at the time of using a video, the usage data may be merged with your profile data. This depends on the privacy settings you have made in your account.
If you have a YouTube account and are logged in, YouTube will be able to associate your user behaviour with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
We use YouTube on our websites to display and present our offers in an appealing way. This data processing may also take place outside the EU or the EEA. As a suitable guarantee for the lawfulness of these data transfers, we have concluded EU standard contracts with the processor in accordance with Art. 46 (2) cEU-GDPR.
The service is only used after you have given your prior consent. You can give this via our Consent Management System either during your first visit to the portal via the consent banner or via the layer that is displayed above a YouTube integration without the existence of consent.
In addition, you can consent at any time via the cookie settings, which can be accessed via a link at the bottom of every page of the portal, and adjust or withdraw them with effect for the future. Your choice will be documented for your browser, thus fulfilling the data protection requirements of the documentation obligation.
Integration of FONTS.COM
Web fonts are used on our website to ensure the uniform display of fonts. We use "fonts.com", a font service of Monotype GmbH, Werner-Reimers-Straße 2-4, 61352 Bad Homburg ("fonts.com").
In order to display fonts and texts correctly, your web browser loads the required fonts into the cache. To ensure this, your web browser must establish a connection to the servers of "fonts.com". This tells "fonts.com" that our website has been accessed via your IP address. We use the web fonts on our websites to present our offers in an appealing way (legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).
