Privacy Policy

In order to be able to offer Traum-Ferienwohnungen, we need, of course, some data about you. In doing

so, we take the protection of personal data very seriously and always process it in accordance with the

applicable data protection regulations, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation. With

this privacy policy we would like to inform you fully about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal

data processed by us and your rights as a data subject.

  1. Controller and general information

Your data will be processed by Traum-Ferienwohnungen GmbH, An der Reeperbahn 6, 28217

Bremen, Phone: +49 421 – 146 29 600, E-mail: [email protected](service provider in

terms of the Telemedia Act (TMG) and controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection

Regulation (GDPR), which we also mean when we use phrases such as „we“ or „us.“ We use the term

„Traum-Ferienwohnungen“ in this document to refer to our websites, such as among others traumferienwohnungen.

de, vacation-apartments.com or holiday-apartments.co.uk, each including all available

sub-pages, content and functions (eg Internet forums, prize competitions). Some parts of Traum-

Ferienwohnungen GmbH are also referred to below as „online services.“ We mean those also, as far as a

website is mentioned below or when we speak of App.

Our services are intended for the general public and not for children. We do not knowingly collect

personally identifiable information from users who are considered to be children under their respective

national laws.

  1. Collection and processing of personal data

Typically, you can use online services that do not require payment or registration without providing

personal information. In certain cases, however, we process the personal data listed in section 3.

This basically only happens if this is necessary to provide a functional website or app as well as our

content and services. Furthermore, we process personal data in connection with the use of Traum-

Ferienwohnungen, if you specify these on your own, such as for example in the context of a registration,

a competition, a request to us, an application or because of a different legal basis (see section 4).

Unfortunately, if you do not wish this, you will not be able to take full advantage of our services.

  1. Categories of processed data

As soon as you use Traum-Ferienwohnungen, our system automatically records information from the

computer system of the calling computer. The following data may be collected:

  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • Operating system of the user
  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Mobile Device ID
  • Date and time of access
  • Web analysis data / pseudonymous usage profiles (Cookie ID, Ad ID etc.)
  • Websites from which the user accesses our website
  • Websites that the user accesses through our website.

In addition, we process the following personal data if there is a contractual relationship between you and

us or if you have transmitted the data to us in other ways:

  • Personal data (name, address, date of birth)
  • Communication data (phone number, email address)
  • Contract master data (contractual relationship, product or contract interest, order history)
  • Login data with password
  • Billing and payment data
  • Comments, contributions, etc.
  • Employee data (name, address and communication data, contract master and payroll data, date of

birth, marital status, nationality, denomination, field of activity, social benefits, payroll tax data, social

data, bank details, personnel administration and control data, access and access control data)

  • Applicant data (name, address and communication data, application-relevant data)
  1. Legal basis and purpose of the processing

The subject of Traum-Ferienwohnungen is the marketing and relaying of holiday homes and holiday

properties. We therefore publish advertisements on our portal for web portal users who want to rent a

holiday property („home owners“) and make it available to web portal users („holidaymakers“) who wish

to rent a holiday home for viewing, contacting or booking.

We process your data solely on the basis of one or more of the possible legal foundations.

According to the GDPR, personal data may be processed in particular on the basis of a contract or for

the performance of pre-contractual measures, in the presence of consent, on the basis of a legitimate

interest or law and for the protection of vital or public interests.

For the provision of certain content or services on our websites, for example in the context of arranging

a request for a holiday accommodation as a guest to a holiday home owner, a registration is required.

Each user can register free of charge with the name, surname, e-mail address and a password at

Traum-Ferienwohnungen, whereby your registration data will be transmitted to us. The collection and

processing of this data is carried out to fulfill the contract of use or agency agreement between us and

the user, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

When purchasing a paid service, for example, if you want to use our portal as an owner of a vacation

property, we use your contract master data including contact details for contract execution and

fulfillment, as is the case for processing operations, for example, for a performance of other services or

performances, as well as the enforcement of legal claims or claims is necessary (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR).

The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the execution of pre-contractual

measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products / services. In the case of paid services,

such as holiday home rental companies, we process certain data because we are subject to a legal

obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations (Article

6 para. 1 letter c GDPR).

We will also use your e-mail address collected in the course of registration or during the contract to

inform you by e-mail about our own services or goods or in general about Traum-Ferienwohnungen. The

processing of the e-mail address in this case is based on our legitimate interest in the application of our

goods and services (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR).

In addition, we use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter if you have given us your prior

express consent to receive a newsletter or advertising. In this case, we will process your e-mail address

in order to be able to deliver the newsletter as you wish (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR). Mandatory information

for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address alone. The indication of further possible data is

voluntary and will be used to address you personally. We use the so-called double opt-in method.

This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have explicitly confirmed to us that

you agree to the sending of the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to

confirm by clicking on a link that you wish to receive newsletters in the future. When registering for the

newsletter, we will save your IP address entered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the

date and time of registration in order to be able to trace a possible misuse of your e-mail address at a

later date. You may object to the use of your e-mail address for such purposes at any time in writing to

[email protected] An der Reeperbahn 6 in 28217 Bremen with effect for the

future, without costs other than the transmission costs pursuant to the basic tariffs being incurred in

this regard.

On the Internet, each device requires a unique address for transmitting data, the so-called IP address.

The at least temporary storage of the IP address is technically necessary to allow delivery of the website

to the computer of the user. We shorten the IP addresses before any processing and process them only

anonymously. There is no storage or further processing of the unabridged IP addresses. It also allows us

to display regional content on all our websites that are located in a particular region. This so-called geolocalization,

ie the assignment of a website call to the place of the call, takes place exclusively on the basis

of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states / regions. From

the geographic information obtained in this way, in no case can a conclusion be drawn on the specific

location of a user. Our servers also store your IP address for 14 days for your own security.

We offer a commentary function on our website and occasionally in blogs, with additional personal

data being stored by you. If you have given your consent to this, you can in certain cases comment and

subscribe to our website. The same applies to surveys in which you participate. If you want to post a

comment, you must complete the fields provided. You can also use a pseudonym here. If you do not fill

out the fields, you will not be able to post a comment. We collect and process the data provided by you

in order to be able to publish your comment as requested (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR). In particular, we also

need your e-mail address to contact you in case of complaints of your comment and to give you the

opportunity to comment (Article 6 (1) c GDPR).

Processing operations that are not covered by one or more of the abovementioned legal bases are

processed if they are necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest and do not outweigh your interests,

fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). A legitimate interest is to

be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible. Based on the processing of

personal data, our legitimate interest is, in particular, to conduct our business for the benefit of all of our

employees and our shareholders.

Our legitimate interest in being able to offer you customized and personalized products, to inform you

about our products, innovations and quality features as well as to constantly improve and expand our

services and products (also in terms of functionality) and thereby also increase our sales, is the legal

basis for the processing for the purpose of direct marketing (own advertising and advertising of third

parties), usage-based online advertising, web / app analysis and advertising scoring (combining different

selection criteria for appropriate advertising). For web analysis services, see point 9.

Our legitimate interest in fraud prevention, detection, prevention or otherwise combating fraud,

security or technical issues, network and information security, and the reliability of our service or

products, also serve as a legal basis for the processing of certain Dates.

Another legitimate interest is the functionality of the business processes that result in processing for

internal administrative purposes (eg address management / accounting).

Another legitimate interest is the protection of the rights, property or security of vacation rentals, our

users or the public from harm, to the extent permitted or required by law.

Should you choose the method of purchase on account when concluding a fee-based contract, we will

conduct a credit check to verify your creditworthiness based on our consent or our legitimate interest in

avoiding the risk of unpaid receivables.

We also rely on our legitimate interest to exercise the freedom of expression and information when

processing personal data of the data subjects involved in our reporting.

You may object to the processing on the basis of a legitimate interest at any time (see paragraph 14).

In the event that the data is processed for a purpose other than that specified in the data collection, a

compatibility check will be carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (4) GDPR. Further processing is only

permitted if the original purpose is compatible with the new purpose or permitted on the basis of a

separate legal basis. Recognized compatible purposes are u. a. the assertion, exercise or defense of civil

law claims unless there is overriding interest of the data subject. In this case, we will inform you about

the change of purpose. If the new purpose is not compatible with the purpose stated on the survey,

a new survey will be carried out on the basis of a new legal basis. Again, we will inform you about the

change of purpose.

  1. Place of processing

We ourselves do not transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area,

except in cases where it is permitted under the GDPR. Whether third parties with whom you have your

own contractual relationship (such as with Facebook, if you have a Facebook account) transfer data to

countries outside the European Economic Area is beyond our knowledge and influence.

  1. Origin of the data

In certain cases, we also receive data because you have consented to the transfer to us. As you know,

apps are regularly made available for download from third-party sites (such as iTunes, Google, etc.). If,

according to the applicable terms and conditions of such a provider, the Traum-Ferienwohnungen GmbH

becomes your contractual partner for the acquisition of the App, we will process the data provided to us

by the third party to the extent necessary for the fulfillment of the contract to enable you to use the App

on your mobile device can download.

  1. Disclosure of your data to third parties

We only pass on your personal data to third parties if the transmission is necessary to fulfill our

contractual obligations towards you and this is apparent at or jointly with another provider (eg in case

of cooperation), we will forward it to otherwise legally entitled or obligated, or you have given us a

corresponding consent.

If you, as a user / holidaymaker, would like to contact a home owner about a vacation rental in order to

book a certain holiday accommodation, we will provide the home owner with the data you have entered

and the text of your request. In order to ensure the security of the communication, communication

takes place via the servers of Traum-Ferienwohnungen. The messages sent via our mail server system

are stored and processed on our servers. All information provided by home owners or holidaymakers

via the mail server system is visible to the other party. However, this does not apply to the e-mail

address specified or used by the parties. This is not visible to the other party for security reasons, but

is automatically replaced by us with a placeholder. We can see the communication between the home

owner and the holidaymaker, but only if this is necessary to ensure the safety of the contracting parties

or proper brokerage. This is e.g. the case if parties to the contract are to be protected against crimes

that are carried out by phishing or sending false e-mails. To provide our services, selected personal

data within our company may be shared with certain departments. This includes employees in the

Accounting, Product Management, Marketing and IT departments.

In certain cases, we also use external service providers or affiliates who have been instructed by us to

process data for us. Such service providers are contractually obligated by us to the strict requirements

of the GDPR as contract processors and may not re-use your data for any other purpose. In particular,

we use the following services: payment service (s), print shops, hosting, collection / receivables

management, lettershop and newsletter delivery. The transfer of data to processors takes place on the

basis of Art. 28 (1) GDPR, alternatively based on our legitimate interest in the economic and technical

advantages associated with the use of specialized contract processors, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

If we are legally obliged to do so or if this is permitted under data protection law, we transmit personal

data to authorities, for example the police or the public prosecutor (Article 6 (1) c GDPR). Disclosure

of this information is based on our legitimate interest in combating abuse, prosecuting crimes, and

securing, enforcing, and enforcing claims, and that your rights and interests do not outweigh the

protection of your personal information, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

  1. Cookies and similar technologies

We use cookies. Cookies are small files that your browser stores on your device in a designated

directory. Through them u. a. Determine if you have visited a website before. If you agree, cookies may

also store login information for an online service, so you do not need to enter this login information

every time you visit the site. Many cookies contain a so-called coo-kie ID. A cookie ID is a unique

identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string that allows websites and servers to be associated with

the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited websites and servers

to distinguish the individual‘s browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A

particular web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

We use two types of cookies. On the one hand technically necessary cookies, without which the

functionality of our website would be limited as well as optional cookies, in order to make our website

more user-friendly. The user data collected through technically necessary cookies will not be used to

create user profiles. The use of the analysis cookies is for the purpose of improving the quality of our

website and its contents. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and so we can

constantly optimize our offer. Further information on the individual analysis services can be found in

Section 9 of this Privacy Notice. Ads are mostly provided by third parties. They may use information

about your visits, possibly through your device settings, to display ads about products and services

that may interest you. Concrete contact information such as your name, address, e-mail address or

telephone number will not be transferred under any circumstances.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by us at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the

Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set

cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible

in all common internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used,

not all functions of our website may be fully usable. When using apps, a technology similar in function

is used instead of the cookie. Cookies cannot identify you as a person. In any case, the use of Cookies

based on our legitimate interest in a needs-based design as well as the statistical analysis of Traum-

Ferienwohnungen is justified (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR).

  1. Web / App Analysis Services

In order to constantly improve our content and adapt it to the interests of our users as well as to display

usage-based online advertising, we use some services that collect and evaluate data on our website or

in the app. Insofar as these service providers are not themselves responsible in terms of data protection

law, they always process the pseudo-nymised user data in accordance with instructions based on a job

processing agreement. You can deactivate the individual analysis services at any time for the future.

Below you can find details about the analysis services we use:

  • Google AdWords

We have integrated Google AdWords on this site. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service

that allows advertisers to run ads on Google‘s search engine as well as on the Google Network.

Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-set keywords that display an ad on Google‘s search

engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. On the Google

Network, the ads are distributed to topic-related sites using an automated algorithm and according

to pre-defined keywords. The operating company for the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc.,

1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The purpose of Google Ad-Words

is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the

search engine results of Google‘s search engine and by displaying third-party ads on our website. If an

affected person reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is filed on Google‘s

information technology system by Google. What cookies are, has already been explained above. A

conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person affected. If the

cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to see whether certain sub-pages, for example

the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion

cookie tells both us and Google whether an affected person who came to our site through an AdWords

ad generated revenue, ie, completed a purchase or canceled. The data and information collected through

the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to provide visitor statistics for our website. These

search statistics are then used by us to determine the total number of users who have been sent to us

through AdWords ads, in other words, to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and

our AdWords ads for the future to optimize. Neither our company nor any other Google AdWords

advertiser receives any information from Google that could identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as the websites visited by the

affected person. Each time you visit our websites, personal information, including the IP address of the

Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America.

This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer

such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties. The affected person can

prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of

a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting

of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a

conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject.

In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet

browser or other software programs. Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to

object to Google‘s interest-based advertising. To do this, the data subject must access the

https://www.google.com/settings/adslink from each of the internet browsers they use and make

the desired settings there. Additional information and Google‘s privacy policy can be found at

https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

  • Google Analytics

We have integrated Google Analytics (with anonymization feature). Google Analytics is a web analytics

service. Web analytics is the collection, storage and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to

websites. Among other things, a web analytics service collects information about which web site an

affected person came to a web site (so-called referrers), which subpages of the web site were accessed,

or how often and for what length of time a subpage was viewed. Web analytics is used primarily to

optimize a website and cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The operator of the Google

Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

We use the addition „_gat._anonymizeIp“ for web analysis via Google Analytics. This addendum will

truncate and anonymize Google‘s IP address if Google accesses our websites from a Member State of

the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The

purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other

things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for

us online reports showing the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use

of our website to provide.

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies

are, has already been explained above. By using the cookie, Google will be able to analyze the use of

our website. Each time you visit any of the pages on this site operated by us and which incorporates

a Google Analytics component, the Internet browser on the subject‘s information technology system

is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component for the purpose of online

analysis to Google. In the course of this technical process, Google receives information about personal

data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which is used, among other things, to track the origin of

visitors and clicks and subsequently make commission settlements possible.

The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which

access was made and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time you visit our websites,

your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject,

is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google

in the United States by Ameri-ka. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the

technical process to third parties.

The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above,

at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently

contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google

from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie

already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software

programs.

The data subject has the possibility of objecting to and preventing the collection of the data generated by

Google Analytics for the use of this website as well as the processing of this data by Google. For this the

data subject has to add a browser add-on under the link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

download and install. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and

information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the

browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the information technology system of

the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must reinstall

the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or

disabled by the data subject or any other person within their sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall

or reactivate the browser add-on. Additional information and Google‘s privacy policy can be found at

https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html.

Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

As an alternative to the browser add-on or for browsers on mobile devices, you can click this link in

order to opt-out from being tracked by Google Analytics on this website in the future (the opt-out

applies only for the browser in which you set it and for webpages under this domain). An opt-out cookie

will be stored on your device, which means that you’ll have to click this link again, if you delete your

cookies.

  • Google DoubleClick

We‘ve integrated DoubleClick by Google components into this site. Double-Click is a brand of Google,

under which mainly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and

publishers. DoubleClick by Google‘s operating company is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy,

Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

DoubleClick by Google transmits data to the DoubleClick server with every impression, click, or

other activity. Each of these transfers triggers a co-kie request to the affected person‘s browser. If the

browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on the information technology system of the

person affected. What cookies are, has already been explained above. The purpose of the cookie is to

optimize and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to serve and display userrelevant

advertisements, as well as to generate reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them.

Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple impressions of the same advertising.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to complete the technical process. For example, the

cookie ID is needed to display an ad in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to see which

ads have already appeared in a browser to avoid duplication. DoubleClick also allows the cookie ID

to track conversions. Conversions are captured, for example, when a user has previously shown a

DoubleClick ad and then, with the same internet browser, makes a purchase on the advertiser‘s site.

A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information. However, a DoubleClick

cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier identifies the campaigns the

user was already in contact with.

Each time you visit any of the pages on this site operated by us and incorporating a DoubleClick

component, the Internet browser on the affected person‘s information technology system will be

automatically prompted by the applicable DoubleClick component for on-line data Advertising and

offsetting commissions to Google. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of data that

Google uses to create commission billing. Google can understand, among other things, that the person

has clicked on certain links on our website.

The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above,

at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently

contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent

Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition,

cookies already set by Google can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software

program. Additional information and DoubleClick by Google‘s applicable privacy policy can be found at

https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/.

  • Google Optimize

Our website also uses Google Optimize. Google Optimize analyzes the use of different variations of

our website and helps us to improve the user-friendliness according to the behavior of our users on the

website. Google Optimize is a tool integrated with Google Analytics.

  • Hotjar

We use Hotjar, a web analytics tool from Hotjar Ltd (Hotjar). With this tool, interactions of randomly

selected, individual visitors with the website are recorded anonymously. This creates a log of e.g. Mouse

movements and clicks with the aim to show improvement possibilities of the respective internet site.

Also, information about the operating system, browsers, incoming and outgoing links, geographical

origin, as well as the resolution and type of device are evaluated for statistical purposes. This

information is not personal and will not be disclosed by Hotjar to third parties.

For additional information on Hotjar features and data usage, visit: https://www.hotjar.com/privacy(see

the Passive Collection category there) Hotjar uses so-called „cookies“, text files that are stored on your

computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you.

If you do not want a web site analysis or recording using Hotjar, you can opt out by setting a DoNotTrack

header in your browser on all websites using Hotjar. Information on this can be found on the following

page: https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out.

  • Tealium Audience Stream

We use the „Tealium Audience Stream,“ a service of Tealium Inc., 11085 Torreyana Road, San Diego,

Calif. 92121, USA (Tealium), within our website, where data is collected and stored, from which usage

profiles are created using aliases become. On behalf of the operator of this website, Tealium will use this

information to make your use of the website automated and real-time in demand and to play advertising.

For example, the following information is collected for this: viewed and clicked ads, articles, advertising,

visitor numbers, topic of the page etc.

The pseudonymised user profiles are not combined with personal data about the bearer of the

pseudonym without a separate consent. Even the IP address transmitted by your browser will not be

merged with the usage profiles.

Cookies are used to create usage profiles or technologies similar to mobile devices. The information

generated by the cookie about your use of this website is stored exclusively in Germany. You can prevent

the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that

in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to the full extent. You may opt-out of

data collection and storage for the purposes of web analytics and advertising .

  • Tealium Tag Management System

This website uses a Tag Management System (TMS), a service of Tealium Inc., 11085 Torreyana

Road, San Diego, CA 92121, USA (Tealium), to dynamically adapt portions of the sites. To enable this

functionality, a cookie named utag_main is created. The TMS is necessary to provide the service and

therefore cannot be deactivated.

  • Optinmonster

On Traum-Ferienwohnungen, Optinmonster, a web analytics service provider of Retyp, LLC, 3701

Savoy Lane, 33417 West Palm Beach, Florida, United States, collects and stores data from which

pseudonymous usage profiles are generated. These usage profiles are used to analyze visitor behavior

and are evaluated to improve and customize our services. Cookies can be used. You can prevent the

storage of cookies by an appropriate setting of your browser software.

  1. Social Networks

You can also find us in social networks of third party companies, such as Facebook or Twitter. In addition,

we have integrated individual functions of these networks into our online services. However, you can

only use both if you are registered and logged in to the respective social network. Please note that

the usage and privacy conditions of this company apply to the use of the respective social network,

over which we have no influence. However, we are happy to explain how such networks process your

personal information in this context:

  • Facebook

We have integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social

network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that typically

allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve

as a platform to exchange views and experiences, or allows the Internet community to provide personal

or business information. Facebook allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos

and socialize via friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA.

Persons responsible for the processing of personal data, if an affected person lives outside the US or

Canada, are Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and on which a

Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information

technology system of the data subject automatically by the respective Facebook component causes

to download a presentation of the Facebook component. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be

found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. As part of this technical process,

Facebook will be aware of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes with each visit to

our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website,

which specific underside of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected through the

Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject.

If the data subject activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated in our website, for example the

„Like“ button, or if the data subject makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal

Facebook user account of the data subject and saves it personal data.

Through the Facebook component, Facebook always receives information that the data subject

  • Google+

We integrated the Google+ button on this site as a component. Google+ is a so-called social network.

A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that typically allows

users to communicate and interact unfit-each other in virtual space. A social network can serve as a

platform to exchange views and experiences, or allows the Internet community to provide personal or

business information. Google+ allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos,

and socialize through friend requests, among others. Google+‘s operating company is Google Inc., 1600

Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time you visit any of the pages on this site operated by us and a Google+ button has been

integrated, the internet browser on the subject‘s information technology system will be automatically

triggered by the respective Google+ button, displaying the corresponding Google+ button of Google

download. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of which particular subpage of

our site is being visited by the data subject. More detailed information about Google+ is available at

If the person is logged in to Google+ at the same time, Google recognizes with each visit to our website

by the data subject and throughout the duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific

bottom of our website visited the data subject. This information is collected through the Google+ button

and assigned by Google to the relevant Google + account for the data subject.

If the data subject presses one of the Google + buttons integrated on our website and thereby makes

a Google + 1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to the personal Google + user account

of the data subject and stores this personal data. Google will store the Google + 1 recommendation of

the data subject and make it publicly available in accordance with the conditions accepted by the data

subject. A Google +1 referral made by the data subject on this site will subsequently be accompanied

by other personal information, such as the name of the Google + 1 account used by the data subject

and the photo in other Google services stored therein, For example, the search engine results of the

Google search engine, the Google account of the data subject or in other places, such as websites or in

connection with advertisements stored and processed. Furthermore, Google is able to link the visit to

this website with other personal data stored on Google. Google also records this personal information

for the purpose of improving or optimizing Google‘s different services.

Google always receives information via the Google + button that the data subject has visited our

website if the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Google+ at the time of accessing our website;

this happens regardless of whether the person clicks the Google + button or not.

If the data subject does not wish to transfer personal data to Google, the latter can prevent such

transmission by logging out of their Google + account before calling our website.

In the event that you use a paid service or purchase something through our website / app, we offer

Luxembourg. Payments are made through so-called PayPal accounts, which are virtual private or

business accounts. In addition, PayPal has the ability to process virtual payments via credit cards if a

why there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to initiate online payments to third

parties or to receive payments. PayPal also takes on trustee functions and offers buyer protection

services. If the data subject selects „PayPal“ as a payment option during the order process in our online

us may be transmitted by PayPal to credit reporting agencies. This transmission requires the identity

and credit check. PayPal may transfer personal information to affiliates and service providers or

subcontractors, to the extent necessary to fulfill its contractual obligations, or to process the data on

behalf of it. The data subject has the option to revoke the consent to the handling of personal data

against PayPal at any time. A revocation does not affect personal data, which must be processed, used
