Data Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

1.1. Definitions and legal bases

The present privacy policy is based on the definitions used by European lawmakers when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy policy is intended to be easy to read and understand. To ensure this, we should like to briefly explain the definitions and legal bases used (Article 4 of the GDPR).

Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller (i.e. the party responsible for processing – in this case, Engelmann Limousinenservice GmbH).

Personal data means any information relating to a data subject; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data or sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction. 

The processing of personal data is lawful only if and to the extent that at least one of the following applies:

- Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific purpose of processing.
- If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party – as is, for example, the case with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration – processing is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. The same goes for processing operations that are necessary to take steps prior to entering into a contract, e.g. in the case of enquiries about our products or services.
- Where our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, e.g. to comply with tax provisions, processing is based on Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR.
- In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would, for example, be the case if a customer was injured and the name, age or other vital data had to be subsequently passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. Processing would then be based on Article 6(1)(d) of the GDPR.
- Finally, processing operations may be based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. This is the legal basis for processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases if processing is necessary to pursue a legitimate interest of Engelmann Limousinenservice GmbH or a third party, except where such interest is overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject.

If the legal basis ceases to exist over the course of time, e.g. where consent is withdrawn or a legitimate interest no longer applies, the personal data must be erased or excluded from processing, taking due account of statutory storage periods.


1.2. Data processing within Engelmann Limousinenservice GmbH

Our website may be used without entering personal information. Different rules may apply to certain services on our site, however, and are explained separately below. We process personal data (e.g. name, address, email address, telephone number, etc.) solely within the limits of the statutory provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the European General Data Protection Regulation and the country-specific data protection provisions applying to Engelmann Limousinenservice GmbH and, in particular, solely for our own purposes.

The following regulations inform you in this respect about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by the provider Engelmann Limousinenservice GmbH. 

We generally don’t store data relating to customers centrally.

When Engelmann Limousinenservice GmbH transfers personal data to third parties (usually service providers handling orders), we do so in accordance with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act and the European General Data Protection Regulation. When we do so, we limit the amount of data we transfer to a strict minimum.

Engelmann Limousinenservice GmbH generally erases personal data or exclude it from processing as soon as the purpose of processing no longer applies. We only continue to store such data where this is stipulated by national or European lawmakers in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject.

Engelmann Limousinenservice GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures in all processing operations to ensure that the personal data we process are protected as fully as possible. Nevertheless, web-based transfers of data in particular may display security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.


1.3 Aim of the privacy policy

This privacy policy is designed to inform about the type, amount and purpose of personal data we process in connection with use of our web offerings (section 2). Special processing operations accessible to the general public, such as those concerning contact forms, are also addressed.

In addition, this privacy policy (section 3) informs all data subjects about their rights.

This privacy policy is thus a tool of Engelmann Limousinenservice GmbH to perform our obligations resulting from Articles 13, 14 and 21 of the GDPR.


1.4 Who is responsible and whom can I apply to?

The party responsible for the purposes of the GDPR, other data protection legislation in force in the member states of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is:

2. Publicly accessible web offerings

We generally process personal data of persons making use of our web offerings only if and to the extent that this is necessary to make available a functioning website as well as our web content and services. Where a data subject wishes to make use of services via our website, processing of personal data may thus be necessary.

If processing of personal data is necessary in our view and there is no legal basis for such processing other than consent, we generally obtain such consent from the data subject, except in cases where consent cannot be obtained beforehand for practical reasons and processing of data is permitted by law.

This privacy policy thus covers the contact form on our website, order processes and processing operations following contact made with us through email enquiries, etc.


2.1. Provision of website und creation of log files

You may use our websites for information purposes only, i.e. if you don’t register or otherwise send us information, without disclosing any personal data. Nevertheless, whenever you view our web pages, our system automatically records data on every server access concerning our offerings (so-called ‘server log files’). The access data include the name of the web page you requested, file, request date/time, volume of data transferred, ‘successful request’ report, type of browser plus version, your operating system, referrer URL (the page previously visited), IP address and the requesting provider. We use the log file data, without matching it to your person or any other profile, solely for statistical analysis for the purpose of operating, securing and optimizing our websites. At the same time, we reserve the right to subsequently check the log file data if we have legitimate grounds for suspecting unlawful use.

Temporary system storage of your IP address is necessary to enable delivery of the website to your computer. For this purpose, your IP address has to remain stored for the duration of the session. The legal basis for temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

The data are erased as soon as they are no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of their collection. Where the data are recorded for the purpose of making available our web offerings, this is the case when the respective session ends. Where the data are stored in log files, this is the case after 14 days at the latest. The data may also be stored for longer. In this case, your IP address will be erased or scrambled so that it can no longer be attributed to you.

Recording data for the purpose of making available our web offerings and storing data in log files are essential for operating our websites. You consequently have no right of objection thereto.

You can also view our web pages without any cookies. You can delete cookies that have already been stored in your browser settings. However, blocking cookies may result in reduced website functionality. Please note that when you delete all browser cookies you also delete previously set opt-out cookies and need to reset these.

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to make using our websites easier for you. We cannot provide some of our website functions without using cookies. These functions need to be able to recognize your browser after you move from one web page to another. We don’t use the data we collect from users via technically necessary cookies to create user profiles. We use analysis cookies to enhance the quality of our websites and their content.

2.2.2. Google Analytics

Google Analytics uses cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and allow us to analyze how you use our websites. The information generated by cookies – socio-demographic data, if any, and data on your use of a website (including your IP address, though this is abbreviated, i.e. anonymized, by using the ‘anonymizeIp’ function so that it can no longer be matched to a particular connection) – is transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. Where IP anonymization is activated on our websites, however, Google abbreviates your IP address beforehand in European Union member states or in other countries signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the US and abbreviated there. Google uses this information to analyze your website usage and compile reports on website activities for website operators and to provide further services associated with web and website usage to website operators. Google may also transfer such data to third parties provided this is stipulated by law or provided third parties process such data on Google’s behalf. Google will never combine your IP address with other Google data. You can block installation of cookies in your browser settings.

You may object to collection of your data by Google Analytics and processing of these data by Google in the future by installing a deactivation add-on for your browser.

We use Google Analytics to analyze and continuously improve our websites. The statistics we obtain enable us to improve our web offerings and make them more attractive for you. In the exceptional cases in which personal data are transferred to the US, Google recognizes the EU-US Privacy Shield: The legal basis for using Google Analytics is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

The data we transmit are automatically erased after 14 months. Data whose storage period has expired are automatically erased once a month.

This information is required to execute the transactions. However, the data entered will only be processed and stored by the payment service providers. This means that we do not receive any account or credit card related information, but only information with confirmation or negative information about the payment. The data may be transferred by the payment service providers to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to verify identity and creditworthiness. For this we refer to the terms and conditions and data protection information of the payment service provider. (

For payment transactions, the terms and conditions and the data protection information of the respective payment service providers, which can be accessed within the respective websites or transaction applications, apply.
