2. Scope, purpose and legal basis for data processing
Oktoberfest.de collects, stores or processes data only for the business purposes of Oktoberfest.de.
As a matter of course, our website is available to all users without needing to gather personal data. You do not need to register to be able to use the services of Oktoberfest.de. Oktoberfest.de requests your personal data if you wish to register for our personalized services or fee-paying services (e.g. newsletter). If you access our website, general information will automatically be gathered. This information includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar data. Such information cannot identify you personally. These data are also generated when you access any other websites on the Internet. The collection of such data therefore does not relate to a specific function of our website. The above information is gathered anonymously only and is subject to statistical analysis.
a. Accessing the website; communicating with us
You have the option of contacting us via our contact form. To that end, we gather your name and email address.
The use of your personal data to provide access to this website and to allow for communication with us is based on our legitimate interests. For technical reasons, it is necessary for us to process certain personal data (e.g. IP address) to provide access to this website. For you to communicate with us, it is necessary for us to handle the above personal data.
Within the context of needing to balance interests, we have balanced your interest in the privacy of your personal data against our interest in providing access to this website and to allow users to contact us. In both cases, your interest in privacy is waived. Otherwise, it would not be possible for us to provide you with access to this website or to handle your query.
The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest under section 6 (1) f) GDPR.
Your personal data are gathered (email address) when you register for the use of personalized services (newsletter) on oktoberfest.de.
We use your personal data to allow you to access our services that require registration or services. Your personal data are thus requested, processed, and used as necessary within the scope and purpose of the contract.
The legal basis for data processing for contract performance is section 6 (1) b) GDPR.
c. Data processing with your consent
General information on consent
To the extent that you have granted us consent to process personal data for other specific purposes (e.g. to receive the newsletter), data processing is based on such consent. We provide you with the details of the content of your consent when we request your consent.
The legal basis for data processing with regard to consent is section 6(1) a) GDPR.
