At this point we would like to inform you about the data protection regulations that apply when you visit our website. Protecting your privacy and personal data is a matter of importance to us. We will only collect and process personal data with your knowledge and consent. You will find out which information we have saved and for what purpose it has been saved. We are committed to observing the data protection regulations of the EU-Basic Data Protection Regulation (EU-DSGVO) and the latest version of the federal Data Protection Act (BDSG nF).
In line with the legal data protection regulations, this data protection declaration informs about data collection from data subjects, in particular with respect to Art. 13 DSGVO in conjunction with the latest version of § 4 BDSG and the connected processing of personal data during visits to our website.

Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data is information which can be used to identify a person or which describes their behaviour, i.e. data which can be used to trace back to an individual. This includes the name, e-mail address or telephone number, but also data such as the IP address or visited websites.
In accordance with the principles of data minimisation, we only process personal data if this is absolutely necessary for the purposes described in this data protection declaration and/or to meet one of the purposes you require. Your personal data will never be given to third parties if this is not necessary or without your consent. We will only use your personal data to process your order, answer your enquiry or grant you access to special information and offers..
Access data / Server logfiles
Whenever you visit websites, data is collected about each access to the information provided (so-called server logfiles). Access data includes:
Name of the called-up website, file, date and time of the call-up, transferred data quantity, report about the successful call-up, browser type including the version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
We use this technical access information based on Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DSGVO (justified interest) solely to improve the attractiveness and operating-ease of our websites and, if necessary, to recognise necessary technical problems and malfunctions at an early stage. Data is saved for a period of 4 weeks.
Contact form usage / contacting
You can simply contact us using a form. When using a contact form, personal data is only collected in the scope you allow.
All information is therefore provided voluntarily and will be collected directly from you as a data subject. The data you provide voluntarily is saved to process your enquiry and or answer any further questions and also make contact within this context. This personal data will not be forwarded.
The same applies for contacts via e-mail, telephone or post. Please note that further data (e-mail address and/or transmitted telephone number) may arise from the selected communication channel.
The data is processed based on Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO (consent) for voluntary information and on Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DSGVO (justified interest) to use the information to process your enquiry..
The information you have entered into the contact form will remain with us until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to save the data or the purpose for saving the data is no longer valid (e.g. after processing your enquiry). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular storage periods – are not affected.
Please note that no encrypted and/or signed communication is possible through the contact channels provided. It is recommended sending sensitive data by post..
Integration of services and contents of third parties
It is possible that this website contains contents of third parties, for instance YouTube videos, map material from Google-Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This is always based on the assumption that the providers of these contents (hereinafter called 'third-party providers') see the IP address of the users because without the IP address, they cannot send the contents to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary to show this content. We endeavour to only use contents whose providers only use the IP address to deliver the contents. We have no influence on whether the third-party suppliers save the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. If we know this, we will inform the users.
This processing is based on a justified interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you require (e.g. shopping cart function) are saved based on Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f (justified interest) DSGVO. The website operator has a justified interest in saving cookies to ensure the technically flawless and optimised provision of his services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are saved, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Most browsers are set so that they automatically accept cookies. Saving cookies can be deactivated in the browser or set so that a message is issued as soon as cookies are sent.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of the Google LLC ('Google'), Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The relationship to the web analysis provider is based on an adequacy resolution by the European Commission, the Privacy Shield. Google Analytics uses so-called 'Cookies', text files that are saved on your computer, and allow you to use the website. The information created by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transferred to Google servers in the USA where it is stored. You can prevent cookies being saved by making appropriate settings in your browser..
Data is processed based on the statutory provisions of § 96 Par 3 TKG and Art 6 Par 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (justified interest) of the DSGVO. Our concern within the meaning of the DSGVO (justified interest) is to improve our offer and website. As the privacy of our users is a matter of importance to us, the user data is pseudonymized by truncating the IP address.
Google anonymizes your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full address is only sent to one of Google's servers in the USA where it is truncated in exceptional cases. Google will not link the IP address transmitted by your browser during the Google Analytics to other data.
We have concluded an order data processing contract with the supplier which states that Google uses this information to analyse your website usage, to compile reports about website activities and to provide further services for the website operator connected to the use of the website and Internet.

Deletion of personal data
We only save personal data of the data subject for the period necessary to achieve the saving purpose. If the saving purpose is no longer valid or if a saving deadline expires, the personal data is deleted in line with the statutory regulations.
Rights of data subjects
As a data subject, you have the right to information about which of your personal data has been saved. If your wish does not collide with the statutory duty to store data, you have a right to correct incorrect data and to delete or limit processing of your personal data. If data processing is based on a consent (acc. to. Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 Par. 2 lit. a DSGVO), this consent can be revoked at any time without affecting the legitimacy of the processing that was carried out based on the consent before it was revoked. In addition, you have the right to data portability.
To exercise these rights, please contact the responsible office and/or your data protection officer.
You also have the option of contacting the regulatory body. For the company vpool Deutschland GmbH, this is the Data Protection Officer of the State of Bavaria (BayLfD) (https://www.datenschutz-bayern.de).
Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves our company as the legal base for processing procedures in which we obtain consent for certain processing purposes.
When processing personal data that is required to fulfil a contract where the contractual party is the data subject, Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal base. This also applies to processing procedures that are necessary to carry out provisional agreement measures.
If personal data needs to be processed to fulfil a legal obligation which is mandatory for our company, Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal base.
In case vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal base..
If processing is necessary to ensure the justified interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the above-mentioned interest, Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal base for the processing.
Security of your data
We take suitable technical and organisational means to protect the data you send us against random or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously controlled and improved according to technological development and organisational possibilities.
