As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transferred to the hard drive of the respective user's computer. Cookies help us to improve our website and to be able to offer you a better service that is tailored to you. They enable us to recognize your computer when you return to our website and thereby:
- Save information about your preferred activities on the website and thus to tailor our website to your individual interests. This includes, for example, advertising that matches your personal interests.
- Speed up the processing of your inquiries.
3.2.2 Consent-free cookies on this website
Your consent is not required for the use of absolutely necessary cookies. Absolutely necessary cookies guarantee functionality without which you would not be able to use this website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by us and are therefore so-called first party cookies. They are only saved on your computer during the current browser session. Absolutely necessary cookies ensure, for example, that you are redirected back to us after paying with PayPal or Stripe. These cookies also ensure that after a booking in connection with a registration you can continue the booking in the next step after the registration has been completed. This assumes that you are using the same browser and the same device.
Absolutely necessary cookies, such as our "Session ID" cookie, cannot be deactivated via the function of this page. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and individually decide whether to accept them or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. If you do not accept cookies, the functionality of our website may be restricted.
3.2.3 First party cookies on this website that require consent
Cookies, which according to a purely legal definition are not absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the website, perform important tasks. Without these cookies, functions that enable comfortable surfing on our website are no longer available. Settings you have made, such as a language selection, cannot be saved and must therefore be queried again on each page.
Cookies that require consent, such as our "language cookie", can be deactivated using the function of this page.
3.3 In the cookies we use, only the data explained above about your use of the website is stored. This is not done by assigning it to you personally, but by assigning an identification number to the cookie (“cookie ID”). The cookie ID is not combined with your name, your IP address or similar data that would enable the cookie to be assigned to you. You can find out how to prevent the use of browser cookies in section 3.6.
3.4 Our website uses Google Analytics. We only use this technology if you have consented to it, if it is required for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract with you or if other legal provisions allow this.
3.4.1 This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to website activity and internet usage.
3.4.2 The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
3.4.3 You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by using the browser plug-in available under the following link. Download and install it from: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
3.4.4 This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()". As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so that personal references can be excluded. If the data collected about you can be linked to a person, this will be immediately excluded and the personal data will be immediately deleted.
3.4.5 We use Google Analytics to analyze the use of our website and to improve it regularly. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
3.4.7 This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under "My data", "Personal data".
3.5 We work together with business partners who support us in making the internet offer and the website more interesting for you. Therefore, when you visit the website, cookies from these partner companies are also stored on your hard drive. These are cookies that are automatically deleted after the specified time. The cookies of our partner companies also only collect data using a cookie ID, which enables our advertising partners to address you with advertising that may actually be of interest to you. You can find out how you can prevent the use of such cookies in section 3.6.
3.6 If you do not want browser cookies to be used, you can set your browser so that the storage of cookies is not accepted. Please note that in this case you may only be able to use our website to a limited extent or not at all. If you only want to accept our own cookies, but not the cookies from our service providers and partners, you can select the setting in your browser "Block third-party cookies".
3.7.1 With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, which we use to inform you about our current interesting offers. The advertised goods and services are named in the declaration of consent.
3.7.2 We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to register for our newsletter. This means that after your registration we will send you an email to the email address provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 3 days, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we save the IP addresses you use and the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to prove your registration, and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.
3.7.3 The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your email address. The provision of further separately marked data is voluntary and is used in order to be able to address you personally. After your confirmation, we will save your data for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR.
3.7.4 You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email, by email to email@example.com or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint.
3.7.5 We would like to point out that we will evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which represent one-pixel image files that are stored on our website. For the evaluations, we link the data mentioned in section 3.7.3 and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID. With the data obtained in this way, we create a user profile in order to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. We record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on in them and deduce your personal interests from this. We link this data with actions you have taken on our website.
3.7.6 You can object to this tracking at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter by clicking on the separate link provided in every email or informing us via another contact channel. The information is stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After you unsubscribe, we save the data purely statistically and anonymously.
3.8 Communication between you and us by email
We always try to conduct all communication with you by email. On the content level, we design emails in such a way that they do not contain any personal data. In particular, we do not use a combination of first and last name in the salutation, so that the recipient of our email cannot be identified by name. Our email server also uses STARTTLS. With this type of encryption at the transport level, both, meta data and content data are encrypted during the connection between mail client and server or between different mail servers. This ensures that the email cannot be read by third parties while it is being transported over insecure networks such as the Internet. If the server of your email provider also uses STARTTLS, the mail traffic between us and your mail server is encrypted. On your mail server, however, the email is in plain text; because the mail is then in your sphere of influence, you determine the level of security yourself.
4. Data security
All information that you transmit to us is stored on servers within the European Union. Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure, which is why we cannot guarantee the security of the data transmitted to our website via the internet. However, we use technical and organizational measures to secure our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification, or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons. In particular, your personal data will be transmitted encrypted with us. We use the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer).
5. No transfer of your personal data
We do not pass on your personal data to third parties unless you have instructed us to pass it on (for example by booking golf lessons with a provider, using PayPal or Stripe as a payment method during the booking process), consented to the data transfer, or we are entitled or obliged to transfer data due to legal provisions and/or official or judicial orders. In particular, this may involve the provision of information for purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.
6. Data protection and third party websites
The website may contain hyperlinks to and from third party websites. If you follow a hyperlink to one of these websites, please note that we cannot accept any responsibility or guarantee for third-party content or data protection conditions. Please make sure of the applicable data protection conditions before you submit personal data to these websites.
