Data Privacy Statement
Thank you for visiting our website. Your visit will result in personal data; these will only be processed by us to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.
We process all your personal data in accordance with the requirements of the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSVGO) and all other statutory data protection provisions; you will find all the necessary explanations in detail below.
Responsible authority in the sense of the data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is:
CEO Andreas Stute
1 – Legal basis for the processing of personal data
When processing personal data, for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data, which is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.In the processing of personal data that is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.In the event that vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
2 – Duration of data storage and deletion
As soon as the purpose of the data storage no longer applies, the personal data concerned shall be deleted or blocked, unless the continued storage is prescribed by national or European legislation to which the data controller is subject. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless further storage is still necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
3 – Type and time of storage of personal data
- a) Visiting our website
Each time you visit our website, our system automatically collects the following data and information from the calling computer’s system:
– information about the browser type and the version used
– the user’s operating system
– the Internet service provider of the user
– the IP address of the user
– date and time of access
– websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
– websites accessed by the user’s system through our website
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user. The legal basis for this temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The log file is stored in order to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. A storage going beyond this is possible, in this case the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility for the user to object.
Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user’s system when a user accesses a website. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that uniquely identifies the browser when the user visits the site again.
– language settings
– login information
– shopping cart information
The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.
– Entered search terms
– Frequency of page views
– Use of website functions
The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical precautions. It is therefore no longer possible to assign the data to the calling user. The data are not stored together with other personal data of the user. The analysis of the pseudonymised data stored in the cookie gives us information about the use of our website and thus enables us to constantly optimise our offer.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
- c) Contact form and e-mail contact
On our website we offer various forms which can be used for electronic contact. In addition, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. If a user makes use of this possibility, the data entered in the input mask of the contact form or in the form of the e-mail program used by the user will be transmitted to us and stored. These data are:
– e-mail address of the sender/user
– the request described, e.g. the desired rental period
– possibly attached data such as pictures etc.
In addition – depending on the form used – the following data will be transmitted and stored by us:
– salutation and name
– telephone number
At the time the message is sent, the following data will also be stored:
– the IP address of the user
– date and time of access
For the processing of the data from the contact form in the context of the dispatch procedure your consent is obtained and referred to this data security explanation. In this case the personal data of the user transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.
The data will not be passed on to third parties in this context. The data will only be used to respond to your request. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been conclusively clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
The revocation of the consent takes place on the same way as the original establishment of contact, i.e. by message over the contact form or by E-Mail. In this case, all personal data stored in the course of establishing contact will be deleted.
- d) Analysis tool from Matomo (formerly PIWIK)
On our website we use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. The software sets a cookie on the user’s computer (for cookies see above). If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:
– two bytes of the IP address of the user’s calling system
– the website accessed
– the website from which the user accessed the called website (referrer)
– the subpages called from the called web page
– the time spent on the website
– frequency of a call of a site
– date and time of the call
The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. A storage of the personal data of the users takes place only there. The data will not be passed on to third parties.
The legal basis for the processing of users’ personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The processing of users’ personal data enables us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information on the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness. In these purposes our legitimate interest also lies in the processing of data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of users in the protection of their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for our recording purposes.
can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it is possible that all functions of the website can no longer be used to their full extent.
Further information on the privacy settings of the Matomo software can be found under the following link: https://matomo.org/docs/privacy/.
- e) Google Maps
We integrate the maps of the service “Google Maps” of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. On our website, a bar with a button is displayed at the place intended for the plugin as governor. Only when this button is clicked by the user of the website is the Facebook plug-in loaded; at the same time, by clicking on the button, the user grants permission to process the personal user data.
The processed data may include in particular the IP addresses and location data of the users, which, however, are not collected without their consent (usually within the framework of the settings of their mobile devices). The data may be processed in the USA.
You can find an option to make settings via opt-out via the following link: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

You have the right to be informed of such recipients by the data controller.
- Right to data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the responsible person in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to communicate these data to another data controller without being hindered by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

– processing is carried out using automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data transfer does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
- Right of objection
You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

- Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision
– is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,
– is authorised by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
– with your explicit consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DSGVO applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the person responsible shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.
- Right of appeal to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the DSGVO.
