5. Special uses of our Website:

On our websites we offer different ways of getting in contact with us, to obtain information from us or to book trips.

a. Contact via e-mail or via the contact form

If you contact us via the contact form or by e-mail, we store the e-mail communication (e-mail address, e-mails and IPA address of the terminal) until the completion of your request or use, in order to answer queries and to document the communication. When making contact via the form, only the e-mail address is obligatory, the name is an optional field. These forms are protected against third party access through the use of TLS encryption.

When you make contact via e-mail, third parties may be able to inspect the e-mail if it is not encrypted. Your e-mail provider can provide details as to whether your e-mails are encrypted. Thus making contact via the contact form is the safer way.

The legal basis for the use of the personal data transmitted in the e-mail is the legitimate interest and consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1)f GDPR. If you send us an e-mail with the intention of entering into contract with us, this creates an additional legal basis for its processing as per Art. 6(1)b GDPR.

Use of our partner portals and our booking tool

We link our website to several travel portals. If you click on a link to an external page, you will be operating outside our website. We are then not responsible for the content, services or products offered on the linked website, nor for the privacy or technical safety of the linked websites. We link to the following pages:

(1)       Sailing trips and yacht charter bookings

If you make a binding booking request via our booking forms, it will be necessary for you to enter your personal information, which we need to process your order. The information required for processing the contracts is marked separately; any further information is given voluntary. We use the data you provide to process your order. We need this information to complete the contract. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1)1b GDPR.

We are obliged by commercial and tax law to store your address, payment and order data for a period of up to ten years.

To register for our newsletter, we use what the so-called double opt-in method. This means that after your registration we will send you an e-mail to the specified e-mail address in which we ask you to confirm that you would like the newsletter to be sent. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. Beyond this, we will save your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data.

(5) We hereby point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this analysis, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are one-pixel files that are stored on our website. For evaluation purposes, we link the data described in section 3 above and the web beacons to your e-mail address and an individual ID. The data will only collect pseudonymously, so the IDs are not linked to your personal data and are not directly linked to you personally.

You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each e-mail or by informing us via another contact method. The information is stored for as long as you subscribe to the newsletter. After unsubscribing, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.

This takes place regardless of whether YouTube makes available a user account via which you are logged in or if no user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish your data to be associated with your profile when using YouTube, you must first log out before clicking the button.
