Privacy Policy according to Telemedia Act

We appreciate your interest in our company and our products and want you to feel secure about the protection of your personal data when you visit our website. Since the protection of your privacy is also of special concern to us, we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. The provisions of the European Union on data protection and German data protection laws apply to the collection, processing and use of personal data in the context of the operation of our website.

Personal Data
Personal information is information that can be used to discover your identity. This includes information such as your real name, address, postal address, telephone number. Information that is not directly related to your real identity (such as favourite websites or number of users of a site) is not covered.

Anonymised Data
Every time you access the contents of this website, general information is automatically stored (e.g. number and duration of the visits to individual pages). These data are not personal. They are used exclusively for statistical purposes and to optimise the website.

Important for travellers to the USA
Due to a US Federal Terrorist Investigation Act, airlines are required to provide each passenger's flight and reservation information to the US immigration authorities prior to entry. Without this data transfer, entry into the USA is not possible.

Transfer of personal information to third parties
In order to process the services provided or to be provided by us, we pass on your personal data to your respective contractual partner/tour operator and the third parties involved in the provision of services, insofar as this is necessary for the performance of the contract.
Should data be passed on to our contractual partners or third parties, these are, in addition to the mandatory statutory provisions, bound by our contractual data protection requirements. Collection or transfer of personal data to state institutions and authorities is only possible within the framework of mandatory legal provisions.

Right to Information / Your Rights
You are entitled, upon request and free of charge, to obtain information about the data you have stored. You also have the right to correct, delete or block incorrect data. A deletion may be contrary to legal regulations, in particular with regard to data for billing and accounting purposes.

Use of Cookies
We use "cookies" (small files with configuration information). They help to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our website and to increase the usage comfort of the product range. We store information such as the user ID in the cookies. In addition, an assignment of the customer data can be made, which means a higher level of comfort for the user, since they do not have to log in again with their complete personal data in the case of a booking. Our websites can also be used without cookies. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can disable the storage of cookies or set your browser to notify you when cookies are sent.

Links to Other Websites
Our website contains links to other websites. This privacy statement does not extend to other providers. We have no influence on whether their operators comply with the data protection regulations and therefore assume no responsibility for the accuracy, timeliness and completeness of the information provided there.

Questions and Comments
For questions, requests or comments on data protection, please contact our data protection officer by e-mail ( The rapid development of the Internet requires adjustments in our privacy policy from time to time. You will be informed here about the changes.

Use of Facebook Plugins
This website uses plugins from the social network operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). If you call up Internet pages on our website that contain this kind of plugin, a connection to the Facebook servers will be established and the plugin will be displayed on the website by a message to your browser. The information on which of our websites you have visited will be transmitted to the Facebook server. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking on the "Like" button, submitting a comment), this information will also be assigned to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plug-in. For more information on the collection and use of data by Facebook, about your rights in this regard and ways to protect your privacy, see Facebook's privacy policy.

Use of the Google "+1" button
Our website uses the "+1" button on the social network Google, operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043. The button is marked with a "+1". The "+1" button is an abbreviation for "That's pretty cool" or "Look at this". The button is not used to track your visits to the web.

If a page on our website contains the "+1" button, then your internet browser will load and display this button from the Google server. The webpage you visit on our website is automatically communicated to the Google server. When displaying a + 1 button, Google will not log your browsing history permanently, but only for up to two weeks.

Google retains this information about your visit for this period for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. However, this data is not structured according to individual profiles, user names or URLs. This information is also not available to website publishers or advertisers. Use of this information is only for maintenance and troubleshooting in Google's internal systems. Your visit to a + 1 button page will not be evaluated by Google in any other way. A further evaluation of your visit to a webpage of our website with a "+1" button does not take place.

Assigning +1 itself is a public process, so anyone who does a Google search or invokes content on the web that you +1 can potentially see that you + 1'd that content. So only +1 if you are sure you want to share this recommendation with the world.

Clicking on this +1 button serves as a recommendation for other users in Google's search results. You may publicly announce that you like our website, that our website is approved or that you can recommend our website. If you have registered for Google+ and you are logged in, then the +1 button turns blue when clicked. It also adds +1 to the + 1 tab in your Google profile. On this tab, you can manage your +1s and decide if you want to make the + 1 tab public. In order to save your +1 recommendation and make it publicly accessible, Google collects information about your recommended URL, IP address, and other browser-related information through your profile. If you cancel your +1, this information will be deleted. All +1 recommendations from you are listed on the +1 tab in your profile.

Further information on data protection when using the + 1 button can be found at the link

The clause on using the Google "+1" button was created by the law firm Gerstel and can be found at
