3. Cookies

The websites of Master Yachting GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string by which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, Master Yachting GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the sense of the user. Cookies allow us to recognize the users of our website, as mentioned above. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The user of a website that uses cookies, for example, does not have to re-enter their access data every time they visit the website because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

4. Collection of general data and information

The Master Yachting GmbH website collects a range of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, Master Yachting GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.

5. Subscription to our newsletter

On the website of Master Yachting GmbH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to the newsletter of our company. Which personal data is transmitted to the controller when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.

Our company’s newsletter can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a person concerned for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to verify that the owner of the e-mail address, as the data subject, has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves as a legal safeguard for the person responsible for processing.

The personal data collected in the context of a subscription to the newsletter will only be used for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a relevant registration, as this could be the case in the case of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical conditions. The personal data collected within the framework of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. Consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. Furthermore, it is possible to unsubscribe from the sending of the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller or to inform the controller of this in any other way.

6. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletters of Master Yachting GmbH contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Using the embedded tracking pixel, Master Yachting GmbH can recognize whether and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links in the e-mail were called up by the person concerned.

21. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Where the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in the case of processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing shall be based on Article 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing shall be based on Art. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. Then the processing would be processed on Article 6 I lit. d GDPR.B.G. Ultimately, processing operations could be made under Article 6 I lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is based on processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases where the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are allowed to do this kind of processing, in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be presumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

22. Eligible interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

The processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

23. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of the period, the relevant data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer necessary for the performance of the contract or initiation of the contract.

24. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provisioning

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In some ways, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-provision of the personal data would have.

25. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
