Data protection statement: We are delighted by your interest in our website. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Below we will inform you in detail as to how your data is handled.1. The collection, processing and use of personal data
You can visit our site without having to enter personal data. We only save access data without reference to the user, e.g. the name of your Internet service provider, the site from which you visited us, or the name of the requested file. The data is analysed exclusively to allow us to improve our services, and does not allow us to identify you as an individual.
Personal data is only collected if voluntarily given to us by you as part of a particular contract or when registering for our newsletter. We use the data you provide us with to fulfil and process your order. Upon the complete fulfilment of the contract, your information will be blocked and then deleted upon expiry of tax and commercial law retention periods, provided you have not expressly consented to the further use of your information. On registering for the newsletter your email address will be used for private advertising purposes, until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time.2. We will not share your personal information with third parties, unless
with your express prior consent, or unless
a third party informs us that the content (pictures, text) you have provided for our online offer violates their rights, meaning we are obliged to publish this data, for example due to a court or administrative order.3. Your consent to receive our newsletter.
You have expressly granted the following consent(s) and we have logged the consent. According to the German Telemedia Act (TMG) we are obliged to keep the content of the consent ready to be called up at any time. This consent may be withdrawn at any time in the future.
Cookies are used on certain pages to encourage users to visit our website and to allow the use of certain functions. These are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session (session cookies). Other cookies will remain on your computer and allow us to recognise you for your next visit (permanent cookies). Many Internet browsers have the default setting to allow cookies. You can deactivate the saving of cookies, or configure your browser so that cookies can be accepted or rejected manually.
Our website uses social plug-ins ('plug-ins') from the social networking site Facebook , which is run by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ('Facebook'). The plug-ins can be identified by the Facebook logo or the caption 'Social plug-in from Facebook' or 'Facebook social plug-in'. You can find an overview of the Facebook plug-ins and what they look like here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins
If you open a page on our website which contains one of these plug-ins, your browser will connect directly to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-ins will be transferred from Facebook directly onto your browser and then integrated into the website.
By integrating the plug-in, Facebook will receive the information that your browser has opened that particular page on our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to Facebook at that moment. This information (including your IP address) will be transferred from your browser directly to a server in the USA and saved there.
If you are logged in on Facebook, Facebook can directly match your visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you make any interaction with the plug-ins, by clicking the 'like' button or leaving a comment, for example, the information will be transferred to a Facebook server and saved there. The information will also be published on Facebook and on display to your Facebook friends.
Facebook is permitted to use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and for designing or configuring Facebook web pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates profiles regarding usage, interests and relationships, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide further services linked to the use of Facebook.
You must log out of Facebook before visiting our website if you do not want Facebook to collect data about you from our website and assign it to your Facebook account.
We also offer you the opportunity to register for myhotelshop services via the Facebook Connect service using the information saved on your Facebook account. This will only result in a transfer of information from Facebook to us with your prior consent. A new user account with us will be created using the transferred information. The transfer of information to us is performed only once. There is no permanent link between the Facebook and myhotelshop accounts.7. Use of Google '+1' buttons.
The +1-button from google.com is integrated into our websites, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA('Google'). The button is displayed as the coloured word/icon '+1'. When you open a website on which this button is implemented, your browser will connect directly to the Google servers. The button is transmitted from Google directly onto your browser, and from your browser it is displayed on our website.
We also use social plug-ins from the social networking site twitter.com, which is operated by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco CA 94107, USA ('Twitter'). The plug-ins are displayed with a Twitter logo. When you visit a page of our website that contains one of these plug-ins, your browser connects directly to the Twitter servers. Twitter sends the content of the plug-in directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website.
This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service from Google Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics uses 'cookies', text files that are saved on your computer and allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information about your use of the website which is generated by the cookie (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities for the operators of the site, and to render further services connected to the use of websites and the Internet. Google will also relay this information to third parties to the extent that this is prescribed by statute or where third parties are contracted by Google.
Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address to other data retrieved by Google. You can prevent the installation of the cookies using a special setting of your browser software; however, in that case, please be aware that you might not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. The use of this website implies your express agreement to Google using the data collected from you in the way and for the purpose described above.10. Right of objection.
You can object to the collection and saving of your data by Google Analytics at any time and with immediate effect for the future, e.g. by downloading a browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics and installing it for your browser. You can find the deactivation add-on here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de11. Data protection.
