Designation of the responsible body

The responsible data processing unit on this website is:

The Villas GbR

The responsible body, alone or in concert with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (such as names, contact details, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Only with your consent are some procedures of data processing possible. A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal message by e-mail will suffice to revoke your consent. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to complain to the competent authority

In the event of a breach of data protection law, you have a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the State Data Protection Officer (Landesdatenschutzbeauftragte) of the federal state in which the headquarters of our company is located. The following link provides a list of data protection officers and their contact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

Right to data portability

You have the right to obtain data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically and have it transferred to you or to third parties. The provision is made in a machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another person in charge, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

Right to information, correction, blocking, deletion

You have the right at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions to provide free information about your stored personal data, source of the data, their recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correct, block or delete this data. In this regard and also to further questions on the subject of personal data, you can always contact us via the contact options listed in the imprint.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as a site operator, our website uses an SSL or TLS encryption. Thus, data that you submit via this website, is not readable for others. The “https: //” address bar of your browser and the lock icon in the browser bar symbolizes an encrypted connection.

There is no merge of this data with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. b DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Cookies help us make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.

Some cookies are “session cookies.” Such cookies are automatically deleted after the end of your browser session. On the other hand, other cookies remain on your device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognize you when you return to our website.

With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured to automatically delete cookies when the program is closed. The deactivation of cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.

The setting of cookies, which are necessary for the performance of electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions desired by you (for example shopping cart), takes place on the basis of Article 6 paragraph f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically flawless and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies are set (e.g. for analysis functions), they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Google Analytics

Our website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. Web analytics service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses “cookies.” These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device and allows analysis of website usage. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually the US.

Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Article 6 paragraph1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior in order to optimize our website and possibly also advertising.

IP anonymization

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization feature. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. There may be exceptions where Google transmits and truncates the full IP address to a server in the United States. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to report on website activity, and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. There is no merger of the Google Analytics transmitted IP address with other Google data.

Order processing

To fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have entered into a contract processing agreement with Google.

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

Our website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. It can be used to generate reports that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. An assignment of the data to a specific person is not possible. You can disable this feature at any time. This is possible through the ad settings in your Google Account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section “Objection to data collection”.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

Our website uses Google AdWords. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.

AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of the online advertising program, we work with conversion tracking. After clicking on an ad served by Google, a cookie will be set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Google AdWords cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of users. Through the cookie, Google and we recognize that you clicked on an ad and were redirected to our site.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies are not traceable through AdWords client websites. Conversion cookies are used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who use conversion tracking. Adwords customers learn how many people clicked on their ad and were redirected to conversion tracking tag pages. However, AdWords advertisers are not provided with information that allows them to personally identify themselves. If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can object to the use of this tracking. Here is the conversion cookie in the user settings of the browser to disable. So there is no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics.

The storage of “conversion cookies” is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO. We as website operators have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and for the purpose of advertising.

For details about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, see the Google Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
