1.2 Purposes, categories of data and legal basis for the processing of personal data
Purposes of processing
The purposes of processing your personal data generally result from our business activities as a tourism organisation: making our online offers available, processing customer enquiries / orders / bookings, accounting, communication with business partners and customers. For detailed information on the purposes of processing and, if applicable, further processing for other compatible purposes, as well as on the categories of data processed, please refer to the detailed descriptions of the individual data processing processes.
General data categories

- Contact data (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number, fax number)
- Communication data (time and content of communication)
- Order or booking data (e.g. ordered goods or ordered services and invoice data such as period of service, method of payment, invoice date, tax identification number ...)
- Payment data (e.g. account number, credit card data)
- Contract data (contents of contracts of any kind)
- Web usage data (e.g. server data, log files and cookies)
Special categories of data ("sensitive data") according to Art. 9 DSGVO

Legal basis for processing
In principle, there is no obligation to provide the data for the data processing described in this data protection declaration. Failure to provide this data will only result in us not being able to offer these services. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or an order placed with us by you is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation on our part (accounting obligation, bookkeeping obligation or other legal documentation obligations), Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If we process your data to perform a task assigned to us in the public interest ("sovereign action"), the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. e DSGVO. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh our interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO ("legitimate interest") serves as the legal basis for the processing. In this case, we will also inform you about our legitimate interests. Insofar as we do not have any other legal basis for the processing of personal data as explained above, we will ask you for your consent to the processing of data, thereby relying in these cases on Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO or, in the case of the processing of sensitive data, on Art. 9 (2) lit. a DSGVO as the legal basis. You can revoke this consent at any time free of charge without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
1.3 Data transfer to processors and third parties
We process your personal data with the assistance of processors who support us in the provision of our services. These processors are bound by a corresponding agreement iSd. Art. 28 DSGVO with us to strictly protect your personal data and may not process your personal data for any other purpose than the provision of our services. You can find out which processors are involved in the detailed descriptions of the individual data processing procedures.
A transfer of your personal data to companies other than our order processors is made to service providers typical for the economy, such as banks, tax consultants or auditors. Personal data is only transferred to state institutions and authorities within the scope of mandatory national legal provisions.
Depending on your order (e.g. for bookings and enquiries), your personal data may also be transferred to hotel partners or other tourism service providers (members of our organisation) only to the extent necessary to fulfil your order. The personal data transmitted varies depending on the service.
1.4 Transfers to third countries
In principle, we process your personal data in the EU area. If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this is done in the context of using the services of our processors or third parties, this is only done if the conditions of Art. 44 et seq. DSGVO for the transfer to third countries: i.e. on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised determination of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU or in compliance with officially recognised contractual obligations, the so-called "EU standard contractual clauses". If we rely on the EU standard contractual clauses as the legal basis for the transfer of your personal data, we will also examine the permissibility of this data transfer as part of a comprehensive risk assessment. If we come to a negative result, we will not transfer this data to a third country without your express consent pursuant to Art. 49 (1) a DSGVO in conjunction with Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO.
