We process your master data, communication data, contract data, financial data and any data you have provided voluntarily, for purposes of implementing your reservations and facilitating the con-clusion and performance of your rental contract.

We moreover use the master data, communication data and contract data for customer services purposes, for example to handle any complaints or changes of reservation that you contact us about.

If you book your vehicle via travel agencies, online travel agencies or other agents, then your mas-ter data, communication data, rental information and, if applicable, financial information, will be transferred to us by our partners.

We also use your master data, and contract data for purposes of settling accounts (e.g., commis-sions and sales processing) with, for example, travel agencies, other agencies, franchise partners and cooperation partners. We also transfer your data to partner companies in the event that we do not have the vehicle or vehicle type requested by you available.

We are furthermore legally obliged – for purposes of preventing and investigating criminal offences – to compare your master and communication data with official perpetrator lists provided to us. Such comparisons also serve to ward off dangers and to facilitate prosecution by the state author-ities.

We furthermore use your data for your and our security, for example to avoid payment defaults and to prevent property offences (in particular fraud, theft, embezzlement). If you request to pay for your rental by invoice, then we process your master and financial data in order to assess your credit-worthiness by obtaining the corresponding information from credit agencies.

Once both contracting parties have fulfilled their obligations under the rental contract, your master data, financial data and contract data will be stored until the statutory retention period expires.

Visits to our website may result in information being stored on your computer in the form of “Cook-ies”. Cookies are small text files that are copied from a web server onto your hard disk. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server within the domain in which the cookie was assigned to you. Cookies cannot execute any programmes or infect your computer with vi-ruses. The cookies used by us neither contain personal data nor are they connected to any such data.

Most of the cookies used by us are so-called session cookies, which are required in order to main-tain consistency during your visit, for example by ensuring that the preferences you entered when making your reservation request, as well as any other information entered, are remembered for the duration of your session.

This enables us to be more targeted about the offers we show you on our website. If you are already registered with us and have a customer account, it will be possible for us to compare the information recorded by the cookies used with the information known to us. This in turn enables us to tune our offers more finely to your needs and wishes. These cookies have a lifespan of one year, after which they are auto-matically deleted. We also need cookies for purposes of settling accounts with our advertising part-ners, because cookies are able to record the page or promotional campaign that led the customer to us. As with other data, we record this data exclusively in abstract form so as to ensure that it cannot be used to identify the data subject. A cookie of this type has a lifespan of 31 days.

You have the opportunity to accept or to reject cookies. Most web browsers accept cookies auto-matically.

BlueKai (DMP)

Our website uses “BlueKai” technology provided by Oracle (Oracle Corporation 500 Oracle Park-way Redwood Shores, CA 94065/USA). This technology enables us to, taking into account your interests and user behaviour on our website and third-party websites, present you with relevant, targeted advertising based on evaluations of your website use on various terminals, such as lap-tops, smartphones and PCs (so-called cross-device tracking). The technology also provides us with compilations of anonymous statistics on the effectiveness of specific advertising measures (e.g., how many people clicked on or interacted with an advert).

To this end, cookies are set on your terminals and pixel tags implemented on the websites that use BlueKai. Together, these facilitate the analysis and evaluation of your user behaviour (e.g., clicks) on the various terminals. This process involves the creation of so-called cookie IDs, which can be attributed to your terminals for purposes of cross-device profile building, but which cannot be attributed to you personally. The data collected comprise non-personal, usage-related data (e.g. clicks on advertising, websites, times and duration of visit) and non-personal browser data (e.g., language settings, screen resolution). You are therefore not identifiable to us at any point.

For more information on data protection and the corresponding setting options, please go to: https://www.oracle.com/legal/privacy/marketing-cloud-data-cloud-privacy-policy.html. You can ob-ject to the use of Oracle BlueKai via the corresponding opt-out tool at http://bluekai.com/consum-ers.php.

 

Myra

With the support of Myra Security GmbH, we ensure the availability of our services and protect our infrastructure against attacks by criminals, botnets and other malware. Myra Security GmbH assumes the task of performing the corresponding filtering on our behalf. To ensure your security, all traffic flows are checked before they are allowed to access our services. By analysing every attempt to access our website, we can check whether any requests you make are legitimate and thus protect your data against unauthorised access. This filtering process in no way restricts your use of our services/our website.

 

Legal basis for the above processing

Art. 6 (1) point f) GDPR applies where personal data is processed.

 

Legitimate interest, to the extent that Art. 6 (1) point f) GDPR applies to the type of processing concerned

Our legitimate interests in processing your personal data via our website lie in our desire to optimise our internet offering and, as such, offer our customers best possible services and sustainably in-crease customer satisfaction.

 

Categories of recipients of your data

Your data is only transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for performance of the contract, for example, in order to inform a local rental partner about your reservation or to process a credit card payment through your credit card company. In such cases, we transmit your data to IT service providers, call centres, collection companies, financial services providers, agency partners, fran-chise partners and other cooperation partners.

We moreover transmit data to Google, Inc and Facebook Ireland Ltd. in the aforementioned scope (see → Purposes of data processing).

As part of our measures to prevent fraud, we also transmit – in situations where third parties have been, or are at risk of being, defrauded – personal data to such third parties having suffered, or at risk of, fraud.

 

Transfer to third countries

If business customers use our services to reserve vehicles that are to be rented in a third country, we transmit the personal data of the driver to our contractual and business partners in such third country. The transfer of your data to a third country is based on an adequacy decision by the Eu-ropean Commission. If no adequacy decision by the European Commission exists for the respec-tive third country, then the transfer to that third country will take place subject to appropriate safe-guards as per Art. 46 (2) GDPR. You can request copies of the aforementioned safeguards from FLIZZR by writing to the address specified above (see → Controller).

 

Storage duration/criteria for storage duration

FLIZZR stores your personal data until they are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed (see → Purposes of data processing at FLIZZR). Where FLIZZR is under legal obligation to store personal data, it will store personal data for the preservation period stipulated by law. The preservation period for commercial documents, which include bookkeeping documents and accounting records (including invoices), is 10 years (Section 257 (4) of the German Commercial Code). During this period, your data may be subject to restricted use within day-to-day operations if its processing serves no further purposes.

 

Rights of data subjects

Rights pursuant to Art. 15 – 18 and 20 GDPR

You have the right to, at reasonable intervals, obtain information about your personal data under storage (Art. 15 GDPR). The information you are entitled to includes information about whether or not personal data concerning you are stored, about the categories of personal data concerned, and about the purposes of the processing. Upon request, FLIZZR will provide you with a copy of the personal data that are processed.

You also have the right to obtain from FLIZZR the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you (Art. 16 GDPR).

You furthermore have the right to obtain from FLIZZR the erasure of personal data concerning you (Art. 17 GDPR). We are under obligation to erase personal data in certain circumstances, including if the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were col-lected or otherwise processed, if you withdraw the consent on which the processing is based, and if the personal data have been unlawfully processed.

Under certain circumstances, you have the right to have the processing of your personal data re-stricted (Art. 18 DSGVO). These include circumstances in which you contest the accuracy of your personal data and we then have to verify such accuracy. In such cases, we must refrain from further processing your personal data, with the exception of storage, until the matter has been clarified.

Should you opt to change to a different vehicle rental company, you have the right either to receive, in a machine-readable format, the data that you provided to us based on your consent or on a contractual agreement with us, or to have us transmit, also in a machine-readable format, such data to a third party of your choice (Right to data portability, Art. 20 GDPR).

 

No contractual or legal obligations to provide data/consequences of failure to provide data

You are not contractually or legally obliged to provide us with your personal data. Please note, however, that you cannot enter into a vehicle rental contract with us or avail of other services pro-vided by us if we are not permitted to collect and process the data as required for the purposes specified in the foregoing (see → The purposes of data processing at FLIZZR)

 

Right to object pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR

If the processing of your data by FLIZZR is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller (Art. 6 (1) point e) GDPR) or if it is necessary in the legitimate interests of FLIZZR, then you have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your data. FLIZZR will then end the processing, unless we can present compelling legitimate grounds for such processing that supersede the grounds for ending the processing.

You may object, at any time and without restriction, to the processing of your personal data for purposes of direct advertising.

 

Right to withdraw consent at any time

 

If data processing at FLIZZR is based on your consent, then you have the right to, at any time, with-draw the consent you granted. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of pro-cessing between the time consent was granted and the time it was revoked.

 

Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority

You have the right to lodge complaints with the supervisory authority responsible for FLIZZR. Please send such complaints to the following address:

Bayerisches Landesamt für Datenschutzaufsicht (BayLD)

Promenade 27 (Schloss)

DE 91522 Ansbach
