CamperOasis - Privacy Policy


Data Protection

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of the CamperOasis. Use of the CamperOasis website is generally possible without providing any personal data. In case a data subject wishes to use our company's special services via our website, processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, 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 accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the CamperOasis. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, persons concerned are informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the “responsible party”, CamperOasis has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

3. Cookies

CamperOasis website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and archived on a computer system via an internet browser.

Numerous websites 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 character string through which websites and servers can be assigned to 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 using the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, CamperOasis can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

A cookie can be used to optimize the information and offers on our website in the best interest of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The user of a website that uses cookies, for example, does not have to enter his access data every time he visits the website, because this is undertaken 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 shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using the settings of an Internet browser or other software program. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the settings of his/her Internet browser used, under certain circumstances not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

4. Collection of General Data and Information

The website of CamperOase collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information are stored in the server's log files. The following can be stored: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the system software 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 controlled via an accessing system of our website, (5) the date and time of 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 serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, CamperOasis does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) 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 agencies with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber-attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore, on the one hand, statistically evaluated by CamperOase and also obtains the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Contact Option Via the Website

Due to legal regulations, CamperOasis website contains information that enables quick electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the responsible party by email or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such data voluntarily transmitted from a person concerned to the responsible party are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

6. Routine Deletion and Blocking of Personal Data

The responsible party processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or if this is designated by the European legislator or other legislator in laws or regulations, which the responsible party is subject to.

If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period designated by the European directive and ordinance provider or another responsible legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

7. Rights of the Data Subject

    • o The personal data were collected for such purposes or processed in any other way for which they are no longer necessary.
    • o The data subject withdraws their consent on which the processing was based in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
    • o The data subject objects to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (2) GDPR.

      If the personal data has been made public by CamperOasis and our company as the responsible pursuant to Art. 17 Para. 1 GDPR is legally obligated to delete the personal data, CamperOasis takes appropriate measures, also of a technical nature, considering the available technology and the implementation costs in order to inform other responsible parties who process the published personal data that the data subject has asked these other responsible parties to delete all links, copies or replications to this personal data insofar as processing is not necessary. The data protection officer of CamperOase or another employee will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

  • Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation giver to request the controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:

    • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
    • The responsible party no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
    • The data subject has objected to processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the affected persons outweigh those of the data subject.
    • If one of the above requirements is met and a data subject wishes to restrict the personal data stored at CamperOase, they can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the responsible party at any time. The data protection officer of CamperOase or another employee will arrange for the processing to be restricted.
  • f) Right for Data Portability

They also have the right to transfer this data to another responsible party without obstruction from the former responsible party to whom the personal data has been provided, preconditioned that the processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR or Art. 9 Para. 2 (a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 (b) GDPR and the processing is carried out using automated processes, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task that is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority, which has been transferred to the responsible party responsible.

    Furthermore, when exercising their right to data portability in accordance with Art. 20 Para. 1 GDPR, the data subject has the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one responsible party to another, if this is technically feasible and if so this does not affect the rights and freedom of other people.

    To assert the right to data portability, the data subject can contact the data protection officer appointed by CamperOase or another employee at any time.

  • g) Right to Object

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislature, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to object against the processing of personal data concerning them, which is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 (e) or (f) DS-GVO at any time. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    In the event of an objection, CamperOase will no longer process the personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedom of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

    If CamperOasis processes personal data in order to operate direct mail, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected to such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to CamperOasis processing for direct marketing purposes, CamperOasis will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

The data subject is also free to exercise their right to object in connection with the use of services offered by the information society, regardless of Directive 2002/58 / EC, using automated procedures that use technical specifications.

  • h) Automated Decisions in Individual Cases Including Profiling

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislature not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which has a legal effect on them or similarly significantly affects them, if (1) the decision is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the responsible party, or (2) is permissible due to Union or Member State law to which the responsible party is subject and this legislation takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedom as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) in case of an express consent of the data subject.

    If (1) the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the responsible party or (2) it is made with the express consent of the data subject, CamperOasis takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedom as well as the legitimate interests to protect the data subject, which includes at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible party, to state their own position and to contest the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to assert rights in relation to automated decisions, they can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the responsible party at any time.

10. Data Protection Regulations Concerning the Application and Use of Google Analytics (With Anonymization Function)

The responsible party has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects data, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors before coming to our website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA..

The responsible party uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. With this addition, the IP address of the data subject's internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our website is from a member state of the European Union or from another contracting state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject's information technology system. The definition of cookies has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the responsible party and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically triggered by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.

Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Every time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected with third parties through the technical process.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google considers the installation of the browser add-on to be an objection. If the information technology system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later point in time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person who is within their sphere of influence, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

11. Data Protection Regulations for the Application and Use of Google AdWords

The responsible party has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place advertisements in both the Google search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords enables an advertiser to define certain keywords in advance, by means of which an advertisement is only displayed in the Google search engine results when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed on topic-related websites using an automatic algorithm and considering the previously defined keywords.

Google AdWords is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-related advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of Google and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is placed on the data subject's information technology system by Google. The definition of cookies has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online shopping system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to understand whether a data subject who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated sale, i.e. completed or canceled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visitor statistics for our website. These visitor statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords campaign and to optimize our AdWords campaigns in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could be used to identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected with third parties through the technical process.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to Google's interest-based advertising. To do this, the data subject must access the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the internet browsers they use and make the desired settings.

Further information and the applicable data protection regulations of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

12. Data Protection Regulations for the Application and Use of Instagram

The reliable party has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform and enables users to share photos and videos and also to disseminate such data on other social networks.

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

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the responsible party and on which an Instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically triggered by the respective Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding Instagram component. As part of this technical process, Instagram receives knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged into Instagram, Instagram recognizes each time our website is accessed by the data subject and tracks which specific subpage the data subject visits during the entire stay on our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and assigned to the respective Instagram account of the data subject by Instagram. If the data subject clicks one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted with it are assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and saved and processed by Instagram.

Instagram always receives information via the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website in case the data subject is simultaneously logged into Instagram while accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Instagram, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Instagram account before accessing our website.

Further information and the applicable data protection regulations of Instagram can be found at https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

13. Legal Foundation for Processing

Art. 6 I lit. (a) GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where 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 the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. (b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his/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) GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. (f) GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal foundations are based on this specific legal foundation if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedom of the data subject do not outweigh them. We obtain the permit for such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he was of the opinion that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the responsible party (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

14.Legitimate Interests in the Processing That Are Being Pursued by the Responsible Party or a Third Party

Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. (f) GDPR our legitimate interest lies in carrying out our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

15. Duration for Which the Personal Data Are Stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the deadline has expired, the relevant data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.

16. Legal or Contractual Regulations 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 Not Providing

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contracting party). Sometimes it may be necessary in order to conclude a contract for a data subject to provide us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract with the responsible party not being concluded. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer clarifies the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

17. Existence of Automated Decision-Making

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