Privacy policy

 

We are very pleased about your interest in our website. Data protection has a particularly high priority. In principle, it is possible to use our website without providing any personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special requests via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to us. By means of this data protection declaration we would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about the rights to which they are entitled.

As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can, in principle, have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or fax.

1. definitions
Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the basic data protection regulation (DSGVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our tenants and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms in this data protection declaration, among others:

1.1 personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an on-line identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

1.2 Data subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

1.3 Processing of personal data
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

1.4 Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

1.5 Profiling
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location.

1.6 Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the need for additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

1.7 Controller or data controller
Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or by the law of the Member States, provision may be made for the controller to be designated in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.

1.8 Processors
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

1.9 Recipient
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with Union or national law, are not considered to be recipients.

1.10 Third parties
A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorised to process the personal data.

1.11 Consent
Consent is any freely given, informed and unequivocal expression of will by the data subject in a specific case, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. collection of general data and information
Our website collects a number of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the internet page, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information which serve to prevent danger in case of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by us on the one hand statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

To exercise the right of objection, the data subject may contact the data controller directly. The data subject is also free to exercise his right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

7.8 Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling

ngEvery person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation provides for adequate safeguards of the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is taken with the explicit consent of the data subject.

If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact a member of staff of the controller.

8) Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves us as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processi is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about the rental of our holiday flat or other services. If we are subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our holiday home was injured and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of ours or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (Recital 47 Sentence 2 DSGVO).

9. legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DSGVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

10. the period for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract.

11. legal or contractual provisions on the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if we conclude a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. The person concerned must contact us before providing personal data. We will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.

12. SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from “https://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

13. existence of an automated decision making process
We do without automatic decision making or profiling.

This data protection declaration was created by the data protection declaration generator of the DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH, which acts as the external data protection officer in Munich, in cooperation with the lawyer for data protection law Christian Solmecke.
