Privacy Policy
DQS takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data
confidentially and in accordance with data protection law. This privacy policy informs you about
how, to what extent and for what purposes we process personal data when using the www.dqs-
tourism.com website.
1. Collection, processing and use of personal data on request
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. You are neither
obliged to visit this website nor to provide any personal data. If you do not provide us with
personal information, you may not be able to use certain functionalities of this website.
Otherwise there will be no consequences for you. As far as personal information (such as name,
address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our site, this is done on a voluntary basis, except in
the cases expressly described below. This data will not be passed on to third parties without
your express consent. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g.
communication by e-mail) can have security risks. A complete protection of data against access
by third parties is not possible.

If the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke
your consent at any time with the consequence that the processing of your personal data will
become inadmissible for the future. However, this does not affect the legality of the processing
carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
2. Data processing to enable the use of the website
When you visit our website, we collect the necessary information to enable you to use it. This
includes your IP address and data about the start, end and subject of your use of the website as
well as any identification data (e.g. your login data when you log into a secure area). This data is
used to provide and design the service according to requirements. They are always deleted as
soon as they are no longer required and there are no storage obligations. For the processing of
pseudonymous user profiles for web analysis see section 5.
3. Consent to cookies and web analysis
The present website does not use cookies. If by any reason this policy will change the following
will apply. When you visit our website, a so-called "cookie banner" appears, with which we ask
you for your consent to set cookies to optimize the website (see paragraph 4) and for web
analysis (see paragraph 5). If you agree, we will proceed as described in more detail in the
following two sections. There you will also find information on how you can revoke your consent
at any time and prevent the setting of cookies or web analysis.
4. Cookies
If you visit our website and give your consent (see section 3), it may be that information in the
form of a cookie is stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are sent from a
web server to your browser and stored on your computer's hard drive. This makes it possible to
recognize you when you visit the website again. In this way we can guarantee a better
functionality of the site and carry out e.g. web analyses (see paragraph 5). Most browsers are
set to automatically accept cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser
and have the possibility to delete them from your hard disk at any time. We would like to point
out to you that a use of our offers on the website without cookies may only be possible to a
limited extent. However, you can also use your browser only to prevent certain cookies from
being set (e.g. cookies from third parties), for example if you want to prevent web tracking.
Please refer to your browser΄s help function for more information.
5. Web analysis (Google Analytics)
If you visit our website and consent (see paragraph 3), we use Google Analytics, a web analysis
service of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland.
Google Analytics uses cookies (see section 4) to enable an analysis of your use of the website.
The information about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the

USA and stored there. However, Google will reduce your IP address within member states of the
European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area
beforehand and thus make it anonymous. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be
transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this
website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile
reports on website activity.
You can revoke your consent to web analysis and the related use of cookies as follows: On the
one hand, the storage of cookies can be prevented by a corresponding setting of your browser
software (see section 4). Secondly, you can prevent the collection and transmission of data
relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of
this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the
following link. Alternatively, you can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by setting an
"Opt-Out-Cookie" on your computer; please use the following link: Opt-Out-Cookie. Further
information on data protection at Google Analytics can be found at:
https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.
6. Legal basis for processing
The legal basis for processing depends on the purpose for which the data are processed. We
collect, as described under item 5, data for pseudonymised user profiles to improve the website
on the basis of the applicable data protection law for media.
7. Transmission to third parties and in countries outside the EU
Your personal data will only be transmitted to third parties, if this is legally permitted or if you
have given your prior consent. For example, we may transfer data to other companies of the
DQS group, if this is necessary to respond to a request you have made. We will only disclose
your data to government authorities within the framework of legal obligations or as a result of
an official order or court decision. A transfer to recipients outside the EU only takes place if it is
ensured that the recipient of the data guarantees an adequate level of data protection and that
there are no other interests worthy of protection against the data transfer. Should you have any
questions in this regard, please contact our data protection officer (see Section 11).
8. Deletion
The data collected by Google Analytics in the form of pseudonymous user profiles (section 5)
will be deleted no later than 38 months after the last new entry in the respective user profile. In
all other respects we delete your personal data as soon as they are no longer needed for the
purposes pursued with the collection and processing and as far as no legal storage obligations
stand in the way.
9. Data security

DQS has taken the necessary technical and organisational measures to protect the personal data
you provide from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. Our employees and
all persons involved in data processing are obliged to comply with data protection laws and to
treat personal data confidentially. Our employees are trained accordingly. Both internal and
external tests ensure compliance with all data protection relevant processes at DQS.
To protect the personal data of our users, we use a secure online transmission procedure, the
so-called "Secure Socket Layer" (SSL) transmission. You can recognize this by the fact that an "s"
("https://") or a green, closed lock symbol is added to the address component http://. By
clicking on the icon you will receive information about the SSL certificate used. The display of
the symbol depends on the browser version you are using. SSL encryption guarantees the
encrypted and complete transmission of your data.
10. Your rights regarding personal data
The data protection law grants you a number of rights with regard to data concerning your
person (so-called rights of data subjects). In general, these are the right to request information
about your personal data stored by us, as well as the right to correct, delete or restrict the
processing of these data and to object to the processing. Whether and to what extent these
rights exist in individual cases and what conditions apply depends on the law (until 25 May 2018
from the Federal Data Protection Act, from 25 May 2018 also from the EU Basic Data Protection
Ordinance). The basic EU data protection regulation also grants you the right to data
transferability. If you have given your consent to the processing of your personal data, you can
revoke this at any time with effect for the future. They also have a right of appeal to the
competent data protection supervisory authority. However, if you have any questions or
complaints regarding data protection at DQS, we recommend that you first contact our data
protection officer (see Section 12).
11. No automated single decision
As far as this is not exceptionally necessary for the conclusion of a contract or permitted by law
(as in the case of age verification) we do not use your personal data for automated individual
decisions.
12. How can you contact us?
You will find our contact details as the responsible body in the imprint. If you wish to exercise
the rights mentioned under item 10 or if you have any questions about data protection with us
or this data protection declaration, contact us at: info@dqs-tourism.com
13. Amendment of the privacy policy

New legal requirements, business decisions or technical developments may require changes to
our privacy policy. The privacy policy will then be adapted accordingly. You can always find the
latest version on our website.
