2. Collection and use of data
Our web pages can be visited anonymously without providing personal information.
Frequent appearance on many other websites – it is technically necessary that data are transmitted to our server via your internet browser. The following data are recorded during an on-going connection for communication purposes between your internet browser and our web server: the visited domain, the operating system used by you, the browser you use, the date and time of your visit to our website and the URL of the page previously visited (referrer address), the access status (file transfer, file not found, etc), the IP address of the requesting computer, the amount of data transferred. This is merely for statistical purposes and the improvement of our service. We ensure that these data cannot be associated with any particular person. In addition, the log file serves the evaluation of system security and stability as well as administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
However, we can only provide you with some of our services if we obtain personal data from you. This data is collected on a voluntary basis. For example, we generate personal data when you make use of our service. Should you provide us with data, e.g. inquiries via the contact form, etc., these data can be anonymously analysed for statistical purposes.
Due to reasons of technical security, in particular, to ward off attacks on our web server, this data may be temporarily stored by us. Tracking back individuals based on this data is not possible. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address to the domain level, so that it is no longer possible to relate to the individual user. There is no evaluation of this data except for statistical purposes in anonymous form. A merge of this data with data from other data sources is not performed.
3. Collection and use of personal data
Information about our site visitors helps us to further improve our website and service. It is not our business to sell this information. We store the data provided by you for order processing in the first place and furthermore for the assistance of our service team. Legal basis of the data processing is with consent Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, if processing is required to provide the requested services. Your data will be deleted as soon as the contractual relationship with you ends and as long as there are no statutory storage requirements. A deletion of your data can be done by sending a message to the afore-mentioned person in charge. Your personal data may upon consent be used for our own advertising initiatives (emails, newsletters, etc.). You can object to these advertising initiatives at any time by revoking your consent by email to dataprotection [at] turboticket.com or by writing to the above address.
The processing of your data takes place in particular for statistical data and online identifiers based on legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) lit. F, DSGVO). Our legitimate interests here are the optimization of our offer, the evaluation of marketing campaigns, the analysis of user behaviour on the website (IP addresses are anonymized) to improve the user experience and customer acquisition as well as protection against misuse. In no event will we pass on your details to third parties for commercial purposes. Furthermore, a processing of your data is required for the fulfilment of legal obligations (Article 6 (1) (c), DSGVO).
4. Data collection using cookies
If you do not want cookies to be used, you can prevent this: the help function in the menu list of most web browsers explains how you can configure your browser so that it will not accept new cookies, will notify you of new cookies, or will delete all cookies already received. However, cookies permit you to use some of the functions on our website, so we recommend you to leave the cookie function switched on.
5. Server log files
The page provider automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files that your browser transmits to us automatically. This includes:
– Browser type / browser version
– Operating system
– Referrer URL
– Host name of the device accessing the page
– Date/time of the server request
This data cannot be associated with specific persons. A combination of this data with other data sources will not occur. We reserve the right to examine this data later if we discover concrete evidence of unlawful use.
6. Contact form
If you send us inquiries using the contact form, the information entered into the form, including the indicated contact information, is used to process the inquiry, and is saved for possible follow-up questions. The information will not be passed on to anyone without your permission. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, if your request sets toward the completion of the contract. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request, as long as no legal storage requirements are in conflict.

8. Web Analytics and Web Tracking
8.1 Google Analytics and Inspectlet
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. („Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will, however, be abbreviated by Google prior to this within the member states of the European Union or other European Economic Area member states, whereby a direct reference to a person will be impossible. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google Inc., based in the United States, is certified to the European Privacy Convention “Privacy Shield”, which ensures compliance with the level of data protection in the EU. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO or § 15 Abs. 3 TMG based on our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimization and marketing purposes.
Google will use this information on behalf of this website’s operator to evaluate your use of the website, assemble reports about website activity and provide other services for the website operator in connection with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the course of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being stored by configuring your browser accordingly; we would, however, point out that in this event you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website. In addition, you can also prevent the gathering of data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
This site uses the Inspectlet analytics system to help improve usability and the customer experience. Inspectlet may record mouse clicks, mouse movements and scrolling activity. Inspectlet may record keystroke information that you voluntarily enter on this website. This tool can be used to track movements on the websites where Inspectlet is applied (so-called heat maps). It is, for instance, possible to see how far users are scrolling and how often which buttons are clicked. Furthermore, the tool allows receiving direct feedback from users of the website. We pay particular attention, when dealing with this tool, upon the protection of your personal data. So we can only track which buttons are clicked, the mouse’s progress, how far scrolled, the screen size of the device, device type and browser information, geographic location (country only) and preferred language to represent our website. Areas of the websites in which personal data of you or a third party are displayed, are automatically hidden by Inspectlet and are thus at no time comprehensible. In order to exclude a direct personal relationship, IP addresses are stored and processed only anonymously. Inspectlet does not track this activity on any site that does not use the Inspectlet system. You can avoid the record and usage of Inspectlet by changing the cookie settings in your browser.
8.2 Google AdSense
Our website uses Google AdSense, an online advertising service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google AdSense uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analyzed. Google AdSense also uses so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). Through these web beacons, information such as the user traffic on the offer pages can be analyzed. The information produced by cookies and web beacons (including the IP address of the user) about the use of this website and delivery of advertising formats are transmitted to a server in the USA and stored there. This information can be passed on to Google’s contract partners by Google. However, Google will not combine your IP address with other stored personal data.
Users can prevent the installation of cookies by Google AdSense in various ways:
a) through the appropriate settings in their web browser;
b) by deactivating personalized ads from Google at https://www.google.com/settings/u/0/ads/authenticated;
c) by deactivating the personalized ads from providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads” at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/#completed;
d) through permanent deactivation by a browser plug-in.
The settings under b) and c) are deleted when cookies are deleted in the browser settings.
8.3 Google Analytics remarketing
This website uses the remarketing or “similar target groups” function by Google Inc. (“Google”). With this function, the provider of the website can address the visitors of the website with target-oriented advertising, in which the visitors to the provider’s website are shown personalized advertisements when they visit other websites in Google’s advertising network. For analyzing the website usage, which is the foundation of the creation of personalized advertisements, Google uses so-called cookies. For this purpose, Google saves a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of the website visitors. With this number, the visits to the website as well as anonymized information about the use of the website are collected. Personal data of the website visitors is not stored. Google uses this information to provide functions for display advertising, such as remarketing, reports about impressions in the Google advertising network, or Google Analytics reports about the performance in various demographics or interest areas. Google may also pass this information on to third parties if required by law or if the third parties process the data on behalf of Google.
This website uses the following Google AdWords functions:
– interest categories and categorization according to demographic characteristics (e.g. age, gender),
– similar target groups,
– other types of personalized advertising.
We use these Google AdWords functions to readdress visitors of this website on websites of third party providers or address internet users with specific interest profiles based on their internet use. With our cookies, remarketing lists, or other anonymous IDs, we do not collect any personal data.
9. Transmission of data
We may provide your data to third parties if this is permitted by statute (for example, the German Data Protection Act), and is also necessary, such as the provision of your data to criminal prosecution and regulatory authorities to defend state and public security, as well as for the prosecution of crime. The use of stored data for the performance of the contract also includes passing on your data to third parties and their use of the data where this is necessary to find, perform and conclude your user relationship and any purchase contracts that have been entered.
10. Duration of storage of personal data
The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the relevant statutory retention periods (e.g. from commercial law and tax law). After expiry of the respective deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted. If data is required to fulfil the contract or to initiate an agreement or if we have a legitimate interest in the re-storage, the data will only be deleted if you are no longer required for these purposes or if you exercise your right of revocation or objection.
11. Data protection by third parties
The website contains links to and (if applicable) from the websites of third parties. If you follow a link to one of these websites, please be aware that these websites are subject to their own data protection provisions and that we cannot accept responsibility for data protection by other parties. Before transmitting your data to third parties you should read their data protection policy.
12. Right to information
Under the German Data Protection Act you have a right to be given information related to the data we have stored about you free of charge. You are entitled to the correction, restriction of processing or deletion of such data. In addition, you have the right to transfer your personal data to other persons responsible (data transferability according to Art. 20 GDPR) as well as the right of complaint and the revocation of granted consent. Requests can be sent at any time and in no special form, to dataprotection [at] turboticket.com or TurboTicket GmbH, Fuhlsbüttler Str. 399 b, 22309 Hamburg, Germany.

Please direct contradictions of this kind to dataprotection [at] turboticket.com (please replace the [at] in your email with the @ sign) or send it via post to the address mentioned above.
We will notify you of any changes to our Data Protection Policy here. We therefore request that you visit this page regularly.
