Anonymous data is collected solely for statistical evaluation in order to improve our services. Please refer to “Right of information / Right of revocation”.

3) Purpose of personal data collection

The collection of personal data becomes necessary, however, when you book a trip or other service via our OBT for which the processing of personal data is necessary. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. To this end the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. Furthermore, the data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. No evaluation of the data for marketing purposes takes place in this context. Our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR is also based upon these purposes.

If you wish to contact a host directly via the contact form that is displayed, the data you provide will be stored and processed by us for this purpose and transmitted to the respective host for the purpose of contacting you. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

In the case of booking a trip or other service, the data collected is used for the processing of this booking, for advertising purposes within the legal requirements, and for statistical purposes

This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
