4. Cookies

The website of Dorint Hotels & Resorts and Essential by Dorint uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are placed and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Numerous Internet sites 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 of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the Dorint GmbH and Essential by Dorint 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, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, because this is handled by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online store. The online store remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The aforementioned cookies are only set if you have previously given your consent to the setting of this type of cookie. You can, of course, revoke this consent at any time or prevent the setting of cookies through the settings of your Internet browser. In addition, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common 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. Tracking cookies are only used by the responsible party if you have given your prior consent.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Dorint Hotels & Resorts as well as Essential by Dorint collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an 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 these general data and information, Dorint GmbH and Essential by Dorint GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to 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 prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the Dorint GmbH and Essential by Dorint GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and ultimately ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

6. registration on our website / registration for the Dorint Card bonus program

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data, for example, for the Dorint Card Bonus Program. By entering the data, the data subject consents to the data processing in accordance with the following provisions; the data subject shall have all the rights set forth below under Section 13, including in particular the right to revoke the consent under data protection law, whereby if such rights are asserted, you may be excluded from participating in the Dorint Card Bonus Program.

Which personal data is transmitted to the data controller in the process results from the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for its own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be transferred to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date as well as the time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and, if necessary, this data makes it possible to clarify committed crimes. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for the protection of the controller.

The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data serves the data controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. The controller shall provide any data subject at any time upon request with information about what personal data is stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations.

For the processing of personal data for registration in the Dorint Card Bonus Program, the Controller cooperates with the processor Serenata Intraware. The operating company of Next Guest CRM /Serenata Intraware is Serenata Intraware GmbH, Neumarkter Str. 18, 81673 Munich.

The newsletter of our enterprise can basically only be received by the data subject, if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter mailing. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail serves to verify whether 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 store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP), 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 the legal safeguarding of the controller.

The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively 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 related registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical circumstances. For the registration as well as for the dispatch of the newsletter we use the newsletter dispatch service provider Serenata Intraware.

Furthermore, it is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing directly on the website of the controller at any time or to inform the controller of this in another way.

8. Newsletter tracking

The newsletters of the Dorint GmbH and Essential by Dorint 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. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Dorint GmbH and Essential by Dorint GmbH may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by the data subject.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the newsletter mailing and to better tailor the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent given in this regard via the double opt-in procedure. Here, we work together with the newsletter dispatch service providers Serenata Intraware.

10. comment function in the blog on the website

The Dorint GmbH and Essential by Dorint GmbH offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal maintained on a website, usually publicly viewable, in which one or more persons, called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. The blogposts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time of comment entry and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be stored and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the person concerned is also logged. This storage of the IP address is done for security reasons and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties by posting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the controller's own interest, so that the controller could exculpate itself if necessary in the event of an infringement. There will be no disclosure of this collected personal data to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law or serves the legal defense of the controller.

11. subscription to comments on the blog on the website.

If a data subject chooses the option to subscribe to comments, the controller sends an automatic confirmation email to verify in the double opt-in procedure whether the owner of the specified email address has really chosen this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be terminated at any time.

This enables a merchant to deliver goods, services or downloads to the customer immediately after the order is placed.

The operating company of Sofortüberweisung is SOFORT GmbH, Fußbergstraße 1, 82131 Gauting, Germany.

If the data subject selects "Sofortüberweisung" as a payment option during the ordering process in our online store, data of the data subject will be automatically transmitted to Sofortüberweisung.

32. Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If 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, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the conflicting interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

33. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party.

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

34. Duration for which the personal data are stored.

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the performance of the contract or the initiation of the contract.

35. Legal or contractual requirements 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-provision

We inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that 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 will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.

36. Existence of automated decision-making

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