If necessary, you can also make use of your right of refusal or your right to data portability. You have the right at any time to withdraw consent that you have granted without affecting the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Right of objection:

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you, which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) Letter f GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests); this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 GDPR.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if said processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

C. Notes on individual processing operations

In order to assure fair and transparent processing, we also refer you to the following:

 

1. Server log files

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, your IP address and similar information.

In particular, this is processed for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring an error-free connection to the website,
  • Ensuring the smooth use of our website,
  • Ensuring the evaluation of system security and stability, and
  • for other administrative purposes.

We also reserve the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are specific indications of illegal use.

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) Letter f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

We use technical service providers for the operation and maintenance of our website who act as our processors.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. This is generally the case for data used to provide the website when the respective session has ended.

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. However, without the IP address and the cookie identifier, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, individual services may not be available or may be restricted.

 

2. Newsletter delivery

Your data is exclusively used for delivering the subscribed newsletter to you by email, and, insofar as you have also consented hereto, for evaluating how you use the newsletter and, if appropriate, other content linked to the newsletter.

Your name is indicated in order to be able to address you personally in the newsletter and, if appropriate, to identify you, should you wish to exercise your rights as a data subject.

The legal basis for these processing operations in each case is your consent, Article 6 (1) Sentence 1 Letter a) GDPR. We use a service provider, who acts as our processor, for delivery and, if appropriate, for analyses that are made. We process no data in third countries in this connection.

Data is processed in connection herewith only if the corresponding consent is given. This is deleted after this. You can revoke your consent by clicking once on the corresponding link at the end of each newsletter. For more information on this, please refer to the data subject rights.

Your personal data is made available voluntarily, and only on the basis of your consent. Unfortunately, we cannot send you our newsletter unless you have given your consent.

If you have given us your consent, we will evaluate your use of the newsletters sent and evaluate the subsequent visits to the BAYERN TOURISMUS Marketing GmbH website, in order to further improve the newsletter and the website and to optimise it according to the actual interests of the visitors.

3. Cookies: Web Analysis & Statistics

You can delete individual cookies or the entire cookie collection. In addition, you will receive information and instructions on how to delete these cookies or block their storage in advance. Depending on your browser provider, you will find the necessary information under the following links:

 

3.1 Necessary cookies

We use cookies to enable the basic functions that are necessary for the proper use of our website. The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:

  • Cookie settings

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) Letter f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in creating a user-friendly design for our website. Insofar as you allow the use of technically necessary cookies through your browser settings, the following cookies may be used on our website:

 

Cookiebot

  • Purpose: Cookie from Cookiebot stores user’s consent status for cookies on the current domain.
  • Expiration date:  12 months

This cookie stores the consent you gave when you entered the website. If you wish to revoke these forms of consent, simply delete the cookie in your browser. When you re-access or reload the website, you will be asked again for your consent to cookies.

 

3.2 Unnecessary cookies (from a technical standpoint)

 

We also use cookies to better tailor the offer on a website to the interests of visitors, or to generally improve it on the basis of statistical evaluations. We use web analysis technologies from the following providers:

  • Matomo
  • Google Maps
  • Youtube

The legal basis for these processing operations is, in each case, your consent as per Art. 6 (1) Letter a GDPR. To the extent that you allow the use of technically unnecessary cookies by browser setting or consent, the following cookies may be used on our website:

Matomo

If you have given your consent, this website uses Matomo (formerly Piwik), an open source software for statistical analysis of visitor access. The provider of the Matomo software is InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand.

Matomo sets a cookie (a text file) on your terminal device, with which your browser can be recognised. If sub-pages of our website are accessed, the following information is stored:

  • the IP address of the user, shortened by the last two bytes (anonymised)
  • the sub-page accessed and the time of the call-up
  • the page from which the user reached our website (referrer)
  • which browser with which plug-ins, which operating system and which screen resolution is used
  • the length of stay on the website
  • the pages that are accessed from the sub-page that was retrieved

Matomo is used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. This enables us to find out how the website is used and to constantly optimise our offer.

By anonymising the IP address by six digits, we take into account the interest of the website visitor in the protection of their personal data. The data is not used to personally identify the user of the website and is not merged with other data. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is not passed on to third parties.

Revocation of consent: You can revoke your consent to the storage and analysis of your data by Matomo at any time via the link below. A so-called opt-out cookie is then stored on your device, which is valid for two years. As a result, Matomo does not collect any session data. However, please note that the opt-out cookie will be deleted if you delete all cookies.

For more information on the privacy settings of the Matomo software, please see the following link: https://matomo.org/docs/privacy/.

You may also reject the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that, if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

We use the Google Maps service on this website. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google”). This allows us to show you interactive maps directly in the website and enables you to use the map function in a convenient way.

Revocation of consent: No option for a simple opt-out or blocking of data transfer is currently offered by the provider.

YouTube

We embed YouTube videos on our website. The operator of the corresponding plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (hereinafter “YouTube”). YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google”). When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells YouTube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

When a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

Third country transfer: Data may be transferred to the USA. For the US, there is currently no adequacy decision by the EU Commission. This creates a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes without you possibly having any legal recourse. The processing can be consented to accordingly via the cookie banner or any previously granted consent can be revoked.

Revocation of consent: No option for a simple opt-out or blocking of data transfer is currently offered by the provider.

The operator of the corresponding plugin is "Die Socialisten" Social Software Development GmbH, Andreasgasse 6, Top 1, 1070 Vienna, Austria, Europe (hereinafter "walls.io"). When you visit a page with walls.io, a connection to walls.io servers is established.

4. Information on the collection and processing of data on our Facebook Fanpage


Through this fan page, we can get in direct contact with our customers and other users of Facebook, actively communicate with them and thus regularly inform them about our offers and interesting news about our company. Likewise, on our fanpage, we are also offering you the opportunity to contact us directly and to submit inquiries.

Our Facebook Fanpage uses the Facebook Insights service. The Insights function allows for the statistical evaluation of the use of our fanpage based on our specified criteria. Facebook uses the Facebook Insights tool to provide us with statistically prepared and anonymised information about the people who are connected to or visit our site. Based on these anonymous statistics, we can better understand the interests and wishes of our fanpage users, adjust and improve our offers in a more targeted manner, and therefore also expand our service quality. In addition to this, the Insights function also enables us to conduct the market and opinion research that we need to tailor our offers.

Facebook Insights stores cookies on our users’ devices to create the statistics we need. Cookies are files that a web server can generate through the browser on your device. Cookies are used to uniquely identify your device for a certain period of time. You can set your browser so that it informs you about the placement of cookies or so that it does not allow for the setting of cookies. You can also delete cookies that have already been placed in your browser.

The cookies set by Facebook store the data required for our statistical analysis. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your personal information through the cookies.

Facebook evaluates the data collected by the cookies and makes it available to us anonymously in the form of statistics. The identification of your person by means of the Insights function and the statistics supplied by them is not possible at any time during your visit to our fanpage.

The legal basis for the collection and processing of your personal data by Facebook for us using the Facebook Insights tool for the aforementioned statistical purposes is Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 Letter f GDPR.

Please note that Facebook Insights and the entire Facebook fan page is a service of Facebook Inc.

As the provider of the fan page and the Facebook Insights tool, Facebook collects and evaluates personal data required for our statistics and is, therefore, able to establish a personal connection on the basis of this data. However, we do not know which specific data is being collected by Facebook for the creation of the Insights statistics that are anonymously provided to us, or for which purposes beyond the creation of these site statistics it is processed by Facebook. In addition to this, we would like to point out that we have no influence whatsoever on Facebook’s personal data collection and processing beyond our own statistical purposes and their scope. For example, Facebook can create usage profiles based on the data collected and processed for us and beyond, and if necessary, create links to your private profile on Facebook or other platforms. Facebook alone is responsible for the additional collection and processing of this data.

Facebook may also transfer data to the USA. However, Facebook has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, which promotes data protection. You can find more information at https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

To find out about the privacy-related processes and the handling of your personal data, you can contact Facebook at the following address and view the data protection policy for the use of Facebook services.

5. Data processing on our Instagram profile

We use the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. We would like to point out that you use this Instagram profile and its functions at your own risk. This applies, in particular, to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). Alternatively, you can also access the information provided via this page on our website at erlebe.bayern.

When you visit our Instagram profile, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us – as the operator of the profile – with statistical information about usage. More information is available on Facebook at the following link: https://de-de.facebook.com/business/help/441651653251838?id=419087378825961.

The primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of Insights data lies with Facebook. Facebook complies with all obligations under the GDPR with regard to the processing of insights data.

As an operator, we do not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and any other information resulting from Art. 13 GDPR, including the legal basis, identity of the data controller and storage period of cookies on user terminals.

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes, in general terms, what information it receives and how it is used in its data policy. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook, as well as on the setting options for advertisements. The data protection policy is available at the following link:

https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

Instagram;s full data policy can be found here:

https://de-de.facebook.com/help/instagram/519522125107875

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) Letter f GDPR. The data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication.

The way in which Facebook uses data from visits to Instagram profiles for its own purposes, the extent to which activities on an Instagram profile are assigned to individual users, the length of time Facebook stores this data and whether or not data from a visit to the Instagram profile is passed on to third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us. When you access an Instagram profile, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (for “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. as part of the “registration notification” function); this may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users. If you are currently logged in to Instagram as a user, there is a cookie with your Instagram ID on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. Via Instagram buttons embedded in websites, it is possible for Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Instagram profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you.
