1. Scope and amendments
2. Information used for statistical and similar purposes
When you use the Site, we collect certain data (including your IP address, browser type and operating system, the number of sites you visit, the duration of your visits, if you are a returning visitor or not, from where you came to the Site, and other similar information). We use this information for statistical purposes, to improve your experience on the Site, to make it easier to use, to better tailor it to your interests and needs, or to speed up your future activities and experience on the Site. We use this information anonymously and in the aggregate.
If you transfer additional information to us, for example when you carry out booking queries or fill data into forms, we may evaluate such information anonymously and in the aggregate for statistical purposes, even without prior registration and even if no booking takes place.
3. Account information and bookings
When you register an account with us, you will transfer personal information to us, such as your name, address, date of birth, phone number and e-mail address, and information relating to booked activities. By registering your account, you provide consent for us to send you messages and documents through electronic means. By registering an account with us, you also permit us to send you our regular newsletters and updates about specials and other announcements. You can at any time unsubscribe from receiving such messages through an included link. When you book an activity, personal information will be transmitted to the relevant supplier, who may be located abroad including in countries without an adequate level of data protection. When you book an activity you also permit the relevant supplier to send you related information. We do not store credit card information.
4. Sharing information with third parties
We and suppliers of booked activities may be obliged to pass on or make certain information available to authorities. Some data is also transmitted to Google, as set out in section 7 and 8. In case of payments carried out through the Website, relevant information will be passed on to our external payment provider (see section 3). When you permit us to send you newsletters and updates (see section 3), the required data will be hosted by an external e-mail marketing service provider. Moreover, we may pass on information to authorities, officials and other third parties if we are required to do so by law, and for legitimate business reasons.
5. Storage time
We store personal information for as long as reasonably required for its purpose. Account information is deleted when you or when we delete your account. We may store information longer for legitimate business reasons (for example, personal information may remain in backups for a reasonable period of time), or as legally required.
7. Google Analytics
8. Google Maps API
We use Google Maps on the Website through an interface provided by Google (“Google Maps API“) to provide you with additional information. Through the Google Maps API, certain data can be transmitted to Google, but only in an anonymous form
9. Other locally stored information
When you browse the Website, information may be stored on your device (locally) through the “DOM Storage” process. DOM storage is used for storing data in a web browser, similar to cookies (see below), but with enhanced capacity. Locally stored information does not permit us to identify you, but the DOM storage process records information on how you browse the Website on your computer (the pages you have viewed, date and time of viewing, etc.) that we can read during your subsequent visits. You can delete that information manually. Please consult the user help section of your web browser.
10. Data transfer through the internet
Data transmitted through an open network such as the internet or an email service can be accessed openly. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of messages or materials sent through such open networks. When you share personal information through an open network, you should consider the fact that third parties may access this information and collect and use it for their purposes. Even where the sender and the recipient are in the same country, data may be routed through third countries including countries that do not have an adequate level of protection. Please use other means of communication where you consider this appropriate for security concerns.
