In the following section we will inform you about the types of "Cookies" we use on our website, how you can reject cookies and, in as far as possible, how long we save cookies.
Cookies are text files which will be stored on your computer and which allow analysis of how you use the website.
2.4.1. D&P Cookies ("First Party Cookies)
We use so-called "Session Cookies", which are, in particular, required for attributing entries you make when using our website whenever you use our it (e.g. your entries in connection with a booking process). Those cookies will automatically be deleted from your hard disk when you stop using our website (at the end of a session).
Moreover, we also use so-called "Persistent Cookies", which may remain on your hard disk for a prolonged period of time (from 1 month up to 10 years) and serve the purpose of automatically recognising you when you visit our website at a later point in time and of identifying the entries and settings your prefer (e.g. your entries as part of the registration process). Such cookies will be stored on your hard disk and will delete themselves automatically after the defined period. Such cookies serve the purpose of making our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. By setting cookies in this way we are able to display information on our website that is specifically tailored to your interests. The exclusive purpose of those cookies is to adapt our offer to your wishes and make it as comfortable and efficient as possible for you to surf our website.
Cookies help us to collect the following information:
- to estimate the size of the user group and the user behaviour;
- to store information on your preferences in order to better tailor our website to you and your interests;
- to speed up search processes; and
- to recognise you whenever you return to our website.
2.4.2. Third Party Cookies
We use Google Analytics for ongoing quality control and improvement of our offer.
Google Analytics is a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Information on your use of this website created by the cookie will generally be transmitted to and stored on a server of Google in the USA. Please be informed that on this website Google Analytics has been expanded with the "gat._anonymizeIp();" code to warrant that IP addresses will be recorded anonymously by Google Analytics (so-called IP masking). In this way Google will first truncate your IP address in Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.
On our behalf Google will use such information to evaluate your use of the website, to prepare reports on website activities and to render other services related to use of the website and the internet to us. The truncated IP address that is transmitted by your browser by means of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Furthermore this site uses Google Analytics reports on demographic characteristics, in which data from interest-based advertising by Google as well as visitor data of third parties (e.g. age, gender and interests) is used. This data cannot be traced back to a specific person and can be deactivated at any time via the display settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads.
In addition, you can prevent data that is generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website from being transmitted to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that is available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
For more detailed information on the conditions of use and on data protection of Google Analytics please see http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html and http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.
This website uses the Google remarketing function. This function serves the purpose of presenting you with interest-based advertisements as part of the Google advertising network. Your browser saves cookies which enable you to be recognised when you access websites which belong to the advertising network of Google. On these sites you may be presented with advertising material which relates to content you have previously accessed on websites which use the Google remarketing function.
More information on Google remarketing and the Google Data Protection Statement can be found at http://www.google.com/privacy/ads.
We use social plug-ins of the following social networks on our website: Facebook
To protect your personal data when you visit our website the plug-in provided by Facebook (hereinafter also referred to as the "Provider") is not unrestricted but instead is integrated into our website via a HTML link (the so-called "Shariff solution" provided by c't). By integrating the plug-in in this way we ensure that no connection is established to the Provider of the plug-in when you visit websites which contain a social plug-in.
If you click on a social plug-in icon, a new browser window will open and will load the Provider's website where you can (after entering your login data if required) for example press the "Like" or "Share" button.
Only by your pressing the Provider's button (e.g. "Like" or "Share" button) will a cookie be set by the Provider in your browser and the Provider will receive the information that your browser has accessed the respective page on our website, even if you do not have a user profile with the Provider or are not currently logged in to the Provider. This information (including your IP address) will then be transmitted directly by your browser to a server of the Provider (usually in the USA) and saved there.
In no case will D&P Apartment Booking GmbH use personal data.
If you press the Provider's button after clicking on the icon social plug-in personal data will be collected by the Provider by setting cookies. You can find more information on the purpose and the scope of the collection of data and further processing and use of the data by the Provider as well as your related rights and setting options in this respect to protect your privacy in the data protection provisions on Facebook's website at http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
