Data protection

Insofar as there is an option on this web site to enter personal or commercial details (email addresses, names, addresses), then users divulge this information on an expressly voluntary basis. The use of and payment for all services offered is permitted – if reasonable and technically feasible – without the provision of such data or by specifying anonymised data or an alias. It is forbidden for third parties to use details given in the legal notice or similar published details such as postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers or email addresses to send information that has not been expressly requested. We expressly reserve the right to take legal measures against senders of so-called spam emails that violate this prohibition.

Data protection
It is important for us to protect the data of users of our web site. In the following, we describe which anonymous and which personal data is collected on our web site and how it is processed.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and allow your use of this web site to be analysed. The information about your use of this web site (including your IP address) generated by the cookie is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and is stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this web site, to compile reports on the web site activities for the web site operator, and to provide further services linked to the use of the web site and the Internet. Google may also pass this information on to third parties if this is legally required or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstance will Google link your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software to do so, although we would like to point out that if you do so, you may not be able to use all of this web site’s functions to their full extent. You also have the option of preventing the cookie from collecting data by downloading a corresponding browser add-on. By using this web site, you consent to the processing of the data Google has collected about you in the aforementioned manner and for the aforementioned purposes. You can object to the collection and storage of data at any time to take effect for the future. In the light of the discussion about the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this web site uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” which means that IP addresses are only processed in a shortened form to prevent any direct personal associations being established.

Anonymous collection of data
You can visit the Lindau Tourismus und Kongress GmbH web site without letting us know who you are. Lindau Tourismus und Kongress GmbH does not collect any data from which the identify of individual users can be deduced, unless a user themself sends us personal data, for example to use the services provided by Lindau Tourismus und Kongress GmbH. We only get to know the name of your Internet service provider, the web page from which you visit us, the pages on our web site which you visit as well as the date and time of your visit. We use this information to generate statistics which serve to optimise our services – as a user of our web site you will remain anonymous. Lindau Tourismus und Kongress GmbH has no technical tools which aim to, or permit us to identify users.

Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data will only be collected if you send it to us yourself, for example in a survey, when ordering information material or when registering for personalised services such as a newsletter or for access to areas protected by a password. Your personal data will be saved and processed in accordance with the German data protection laws and will only be used for the purposes specified by you. This information and data will not be revealed to third parties unless you have been previously informed about it and you have given express permission to do so. This shall not apply only if Lindau Tourismus und Kongress GmbH is legally obliged e.g. due to a court ruling, to reveal data and make it available.

We will only process your data for those commercial purposes needed to process orders and to maintain customer relationships. According to the German federal data protection act § 28 para. 4, you can object to or withdraw permission for the use and/or processing of your data as specified above at any time by notifying Lindau Tourismus und Kongress GmbH, provided the data is not required to process a contract or order.
