Privacy Policy

Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is especially important to the management of Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH. In principle, use of the Internet pages of Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH is possible without the entry of any personal data. However, to the extent that a data subject wishes to make use of special services of our company via our Internet page, the processing of personal data may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and no legal basis exists for suchprocessing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, for example, the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in compliance with the requirements of the GeneralData Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH. Through this Privacy Policy, our company seeks to inform the public regarding the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. In addition, data subjects are provided with an explanation of the rights to which they are entitled under this Privacy Policy.

As data controller, Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH has implemented comprehensive technical and organizational measures to ensure the fullest possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transfers are subject in principle to security gaps, and absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each data subject has the option to transmit personal data to us through alternative means such as by telephone.

To guarantee this, we wish to provide prior explanation of the terms used.

In this Privacy Policy, we use the following terms among others:

f) Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization is defined as the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the need for additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and subject to technical and organizational measures, which ensure that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.



g) Controller or party responsible for processing

The controller or party responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other entity that, whether jointly with others or by itself, makes decisions concerning the purpose and means of the processing of personal data.

However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigational duty under EU law or the law of a Member State do not fall under the definition of recipient.



j) Third party

Email: info@bavariayachts.com
Website: www.bavariayachts.com

4. Cookies

The Internet pages of Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files deposited and stored on the computer system of the website visitor by means of an Internet browser.

Many Internet pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a ’cookie ID’. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. This is a unique identifier used by websites and servers to associate themselves with the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites 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 a unique cookie ID.

The use of cookies therefore enables Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH to provide its users of our website with more user‐friendly services that would not be possible without setting cookies.

It is thus possible to optimize information and offers on our website with the user in mind. As discussed, cookies allow us to recognize returning users of our Internet page. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to make use of our Internet page. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re‐enter his or her login data during each visit to the website, because the identification of the individual concerned is carried out by the website and the cookie is deposited on the computer system of the user. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in an online shop. The online shop takes note of the items a customer places into a virtual shopping basket by means of a cookie.

At any time, the data subject can prevent our website from setting cookies by using the appropriate setting of the browser employed and thus can lodge a permanent objection to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies already set may be erased at any time via an Internet browser or other programs. This is possible in all popular internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser that is being used, it may not be possible to use all functions of our website to their full extent.



5. Collection of general data and other information

Our Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH website collects a series of general data as well as other information each time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the server’s logfiles. The collected data include (1) types and versions of browsers used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system gained access to our Internet page (the ’referrer’), (4) the sub‐websites to which a system accessing our Internet page is directed, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet page, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that assist us with protection in the event of hacking attacks on our IT systems.

When Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH uses these general data and other information, it does not draw any conclusions about the specific individual concerned. This information is used to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our Internet page, (2) optimize the contents and advertisements of our Internet page for this purpose, (3) ensure the functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our Internet page over the long term, and (4) make information relevant to criminal prosecution available to criminal prosecutors in the event of a cyber‐attack. In this case, the legal basis for data processing is Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH’s justified interest in the proper presentation of the Internet pages and prevention of attacks against the website (hacking), Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. f) EU GDPR. Such anonymously collected data are therefore evaluated by Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH statistically and with the aim to improve data protection and data security in our company, so that an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us can be guaranteed. The anonymous data from the server’s logfiles are stored separately from all personal data provided by the individual concerned.



6. Legal basis of the processing

Art.6 Par. 1 lett. a) GDPR forms the legal basis for processing operations in our company, for which we obtain the consent of the individual concerned for a specific processing purpose. Where the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, which could be the case, for example, for processing operations where a delivery of goods or the delivery of a performance or counter‐performance is necessary, the legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations as are required for the implementation of preliminary measures such as in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that necessitates the processing of personal data ‐for example, to fulfill tax‐related requirements ‐the legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. c) EU GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data is required to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for instance, if a visitor to our facilities were to be injured and the person’s name, age, health insurance information or other vital information would need to be passed on to a physician, hospital or other third parties. The legal basis for data processing would then be Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. d) GDPR. In the end, the legal basis for processing operations could be Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. f) EU GDPR. If processing operations are necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the latter, Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. f) GDPR serves as legal basis forprocessing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases. We are specifically permitted to engage in such processing operations because they were specifically mentioned by the European authority. To this extent, it took the position thata justified interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).



7. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiration of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely erased unless they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

Furthermore, we can retain data if you have granted your permission for us to do this or in the event of a legal dispute and we use the evidence in the context of legal limitation periods that can extend up to thirty years; the standard limitation period amounts to three years.



8. Registration at our Internet site

Thedata subject has the option to register at the controller’s website by providing personal data. Precisely which personal data are transmitted to the controller depends on the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for internal purposes. In this case, the legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 letts. a), b) EU GDPR. The controller can permit the data to be shared withone or more service providers who must be exclusively to internal use of the data, which is attributable to the controller. The prescribed data protection contract has been concluded with all service providers.

In the process of registering at the controller’s website, the IP address provided by the data subject’s internet service provider (ISP), is stored along with the date and time of registration. These data are stored based on the assumption that the misuse of our services can be prevented only in this way and that these data, if needed, facilitate detection when criminal acts are committed. To this extent, storage of these data is required to protect the controller. In principle, sharing of these data with third parties will not take place unless there is a legal obligation to share the data or the data sharing facilitates criminal prosecution.

Registration of the data subject through voluntary provision of personal data allows the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that can onlybe offered to registered users based on the nature of these contents or services. Registered persons have the option at any time to modify the personal data they have provided or to have these completely erased from the controller’s data inventory.

Upon the data subject’s request, the controller will provide him or her with information concerning storage of the specific personal data relevant to the data subject. Moreover, the controller will rectify or erase personal data upon the request or instruction of the data subject to the extent that such action does not conflict with legal retention obligations. In this context, all employees of the controller are available to the data subject as points of contact.



9. Subscribing to our newsletter

At the Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company newsletter. In the newsletter subscription process, precisely which personal data are transmitted to the controller depends on the respective input mask used for the registration.

In this process, the principle of data economy is followed, and the sole absolute requirement when you subscribe to the newsletter is for your email address. All other information is voluntary and not required when you subscribe to the newsletter.

Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH periodically uses its newsletter to inform its customers and business partners regarding company offers. In principle, our company newsletter can only be received by data subjects if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject is registered to receive the newsletter. For legal purposes, a confirmation email is sent to the data subject in connection with the initial sending of the newsletter by means of a double opt‐in procedure. This confirmation email servesto check whether the owner of the email address as the data subject has authorized the reception of the newsletter. The legal basis for data processing and the distribution of the newsletter is your consent, Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. a) EU GDPR.

In the newsletter registration process, we also store information from the IP address issued by the internet service provider (ISP) related to the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration. Collection of these data is required to be able recognize any (possible) later misuse of a data subject’s email address, and it therefore serves as a legal protection for the data controller.

The personal data collected in the context of registration for the newsletter are used exclusively to send our newsletter. Moreover, newsletter subscribers may be informed by email as required for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration regarding what could happen in the case of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in technical factors. No personal data are shared with third parties in the context of the newsletter service. Subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. Consent to the storage of personal data thatthe data subject has provided us in connection with the sending of the newsletter can be revoked at any time. Every newsletter contains a link that can be used to revoke consent. A further option exists to unsubscribe from the newsletter directly at the controller’s website or to communicate this request to the controller in other ways.



10. Newsletter tracking

Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH newsletters contain ‘tracking pixels’. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in emails sent in HTML format to enable log filerecording and log fileanalysis. In this way, a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of on-line marketing campaigns can be performed. Through the use of the embedded tracking pixel, Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH can recognize whether and when an email from a data subject was opened and which links contained in the email were followed by the data subject.

The personal data collected by means of the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller for the purpose of optimizing the sending of the newsletter and modifying the content of future newsletters for a better match with the data subject’s interests. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. a) EU GDPR. These personal data are not shared with third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the consent they have separately provided via the double opt‐in procedure. Following revocation, these personal data will be erased by the data controller. Bavaria Yachtbau GmbHautomatically regards any unsubscription from receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.



11. How to reach us using the website

Due to legal requirements, the Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH website contains information that facilitates rapid electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us by means of a general email address. If a data subject contacts the controller via email or a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject are automatically stored.

Google does this by storing a piece of data in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network. Through the use of this piece of data, known as a „cookie“, the visits of these users are collected. This piece of datais used as a unique identifier of a web browser on a specific terminal and not to identify a person.

    The Google Tag Manager performs the administration and control of various tags. To accomplish this, it deposits a cookie in your browser. The tag manager solely administers other tags and does not itself collect any personal data.

    The use of Google Tools is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 lett. a) EU GDPR. You can revoke your consentHERE at any time. The revocation is valid solely for the device and web browser on which it was deposited; please repeat the process as necessary on alldevices. If you erase the opt-out cookie, you will be asked once more to give your consent to the data transmission.

    In addition, you can configure your browser accordingly to prevent third‐party advertisements. You can also permanently prevent Google tracking by using the appropriate plug‐in for current web browsers that you will need to download and install here: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996

    Your data will be transmitted to Google for evaluation. If you have a Google account, Google can also compile the data it receives from tracking. Transmittal to third countries occurs; to learn more, see: Transmittal to third countries / Purpose of transmittal to third countries. Based on EU GDPR, we have concluded a related agreement for order processing.

    The data collected by means of this procedure will be erased once these data are no longer required for our purposes. In our case, this will occur within no more than 24 months.

    19. Data protection policy on the use and application of Instagram

    The party responsible for data processing has integrated components of the Instagram service at this Internet page. Instagram is a service that may be classified as an audiovisual platform which allows users to share photos and videos, as well as disseminate such data in other social networks.

    Instagram is operated by Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.

    Whenever a person loads an individual page on this site, which is operated by the controller and in which an Instagram component (Insta‐button) is integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the relevant Instagram component to download a display of the corresponding Instagram component from Instagram. During the course of this technical procedure, Instagram is made aware of which specific subpage of our website was visited by the data subject.

    If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Instagram, every time the website is called up by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site ‐Instagram detects which specific subpage was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by the Instagram component and associated by Instagram with the particular Instagram account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, Instagram assigns the data thus transmitted and the information to the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and stores and processes the personal data.

    If you are logged into Instagram when you access our website, Instagram will always be notified via the Instagram component that you have visited our website; this occurs whether or not you have clicked on anInstagram component. If the data subject does not want such a transmission of information to Instagram, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from his/her Instagram account before a call‐up to our website is made.

    More information about Instagram’s current Data Protection Policy can be retrieved underhttps://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.



    20. Data protection policy on the use and application of YouTube

    The party responsible for data processing has integrated components of YouTube at this Internet page. YouTube is an internet video portal that gives video publishers the opportunity to post video clips free of charge and enables other users to watch, evaluate and comment on these video clips also free of charge. YouTube permits publication of all types of videos, which is why entire films and TV shows, but also music videos, trailers or user-produced videos can be viewed via the internet portal.

    YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043–1351, USA.

    Each time someone loads an individual page on this site which is operated by the controller and in which a YouTube component (YouTube video) is integrated, the internet browser on the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the relevant YouTube component to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be retrieved under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google are made aware of which specific subpage of our website was visited by the data subject.

    If the data subject is logged into a YouTube account at the same time, YouTube will detect which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting when a subpage is accessed that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and associated with the particular YouTube account of the data subject.

    If the data subject is logged into YouTube when accessing our website, YouTube and Google will always be notified via the YouTube component that has been visited our website; this occurs whether or not a YouTube video has been clicked. If the data subject does notwish for such information to be transmitted to YouTube, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from his/her YouTube account before a call‐up to our website is made.

    The data protection guidelines published by YouTube, which can be retrieved under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information concerning the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.



    21. Legal or contractual provisions governing the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation on the part of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data

    We will inform you if the provision of personal data is in part required by law (e. g., tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e. g., information on the contractual partner). It may be necessary at times for a contract to be concluded for a data subject to provide us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with the data subject. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract cannot be concluded with the data subject. The data subject must contact one of our employees before providing personal data to the company. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case‐by‐case basis as to whether provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data and what consequences the failure to provide personal data may have.



    22. Existence of automated decision‐making

    As a company that is conscious of its responsibility, we reject automated decision‐making and profiling.

    This privacy policy was created by the privacy policy generator of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH (DGD), which serves as an authorized external representative for data protection in Landshut in cooperation with IT/privacy law attorney Christian Solmecke.



    Privacy policy / information data protection in the social media

    Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH maintains a presence on „social media.“ Where we control the processing of your data, we ensure that applicable data protection provisions are observed. With respect to our presence, you will find the key information on privacy law below.

    Nachfolgend finden Sie in Bezug auf unsere Auftritte die wichtigsten Informationen zum Datenschutzrecht.


    Name and address of the individuals responsible for operation

    Besides Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH, those responsible for the company’s presence in the sense of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well as other privacy provisions include:

  • Facebook: (Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland)
  • Instagram: (Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland)
  • Youtube: (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland)

  • You use these platforms and their functions on your own responsibility, however. This specifically applies to use of interactive functions (such as commenting, sharing, assessing).

    We advise you that your data can thereby be processed outside the area of the European Union. With respect to providers in the United States that hold certification under the „Privacy Shield“, we point out that these providers have pledged to uphold the data protection standards of the EU.



    Purpose and legal basis

    We maintain our own fan pages to communicate with visitors and inform them in this way concerning our offers.

    In addition, we collect data for statistical purposes to be able to develop and optimize the contents and increase the attractiveness of our offer. The data required for us to do this (such as total page views, page activities and data provided by visitors, interactions) are processed and made available by the social networks. We have no influence on their creation or presentation.

    In addition, your personal data are processed by the social media providers for the purposes of market research and promotions. Thus it is possible for a user profile to be created, for example, based on your user behavior and the interests it reveals. In this way, ad impressions and other advertising can be activated within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to your interests. To accomplish this, cookies are generally deposited on your computer. Regardless of this, data not directly connected at your terminals can be stored in your user profiles. Cross‐device storage and analysis can result, especially but not exclusively if you are registered as a member and logged into particular platforms.

    The processing of your personal data by Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH is based on our justified interests in effective information and communication in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 Sentence 1 lett. f) EU GDPR.

    Should you be asked for your consent to data processing ‐that is, if you give your approval by confirming a button or similar (opting in) ‐the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 Sentence 1lett. a) EU GDPR, Art. 7 EU GDPR.



    Your rights / Option to object

    If you belong to a social network and do not wish for the network to collect data about you via our presence or to link your stored membership data to the respective network, you must

  • log out of the respective network prior to visiting our fan page,
  • erase existing cookies from the device and
  • close your browser and reboot the computer.

  • Following a new login, however, you once again become identifiable to the network as a specific user.
