Newsletter

The following is to inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you declare your agreement with the receipt and the described methods.

Content of the newsletter

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter referred to as “newsletters”) only with the consent of the recipient or legal permission. Also, our newsletters provide information on travel topics, in particular on flights, hotels, package tours, and credit cards.

Double opt-in and logging

The registration to our newsletter takes place in a so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. This means that you will receive an e-mail after your registration in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with an e-mail address other than his or her own. The registrations for the newsletter are logged to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, the changes in your data stored with the service providers are logged.

Distribution service provider

The newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. You can view the privacy policy of this service provider here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with the European data protection level (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG&status=Active).

Furthermore, according to its own information, the service provider may use this data in anonymized form, i.e. without allocation to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the distribution and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes, in order to determine the country of origin of the recipients. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to contact them or pass information on to third parties.

Registration data

To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address.

Success measurement

The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e., a file the size of a pixel, which is catched by the server of the service provider when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor the shipping service provider’s intention to monitor individual users. The evaluations serve us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.

Online access and data management

There are cases in which we direct the newsletter recipients to the MailChimp websites. For example, our newsletters contain a link with which the newsletter recipients can call up the newsletters online (e.g., in the case of problems with displaying the newsletter in the e-mail program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can subsequently correct their data, such as their e-mail address. Likewise, the privacy policy of MailChimp is only available on their site.

In this context, we are pointing out that cookies are being used on the MailChimp websites and that personal data is processed by MailChimp, its partners and service providers (e.g., Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection. Further information can be found in MailChimp’s privacy policy. Also, we draw your attention to the possibilities of objection to the data collection for advertising purposes on the websites aboutads.info/choices/ and youronlinechoices.com (for the European area).

Legal bases

The dispatch of the newsletter and the performance measurement are based on the consent of the recipients according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO in conjunction with ยง 7 para. 2 no. 3 UWG or on the legal permission according to ยง 7 para. 3 UWG.

The registration procedure is recorded based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and serves as proof of consent to receive the newsletter.

Cancellation/revocation

You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e., revoke your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can withdraw your consent at any time by sending an email to info@travel-dealz.eu. If users have only subscribed to the newsletter and canceled their subscription, their personal data will be deleted.

With the following information, we inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the described procedures.

Chatbot

We offer a chatbot for the Telegram Messenger to provide breaking deals and other interactive services. Based on our legitimate interest, and with the express consent of the user, we store the User ID provided by the Messenger. In addition, we store the time of the declaration of consent for the storage of the data and the stored keywords. Further personal data can be communicated to us by the messenger, but are expressly not stored by us.

The user has – at any time – the possibility to have all stored personal data deleted immediately via the command “forget”.

Partner Programs

We are not liable on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in the economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f.). DSGVO) Participants of several partner programs designed to provide a medium for websites, by means of which through the placement of links, advertising costs can be earned. When you click on advertising media, cookies can be set on your device. These cookies contain IDs that provide information about the website operator, the advertising medium, the contact time and the advertiser. This information is used to process the website operator’s commission claims in the event of a measured conversion (e.g., a sale, or registration, etc.). In addition, information about your device (anonymous IP, operating system, browser version) is collected in order to improve the service and prevent misuse. You can set in your browser whether and to what extent cookies should be allowed. However, we would like to point out that a restriction can be accompanied by less usability of websites.
