2. Use of personal data

We take the protection of your data very seriously. You can visit some of our websites without us requiring any personal data from you. In certain cases, however, we need your data in order to answer your inquiries or to give you access to special offers, such as our newsletter or our digital magazine.
In such cases, we will inform you and obtain your consent. Naturally we do not collect any personal data via our websites without your consent. An exception applies for those cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent and where the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2.1 Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, art. 6 para. 1 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, art. 6 para. 1 GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, art. 6 para. 1 GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another person require the processing of personal data, art. 6 para. 1 GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, art. 6 para. 1 GDPR serves as the legal basis for such processing.

Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

2.3 Informational use

In the case of purely informational use of our website, we only collect and use data that your Internet browser automatically transmits to us, such as:

  • Date and time of access to our website
  • Browser type
  • Browser settings
  • Operating system used
  • Last visted page
  • Amount of data transferred and access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • IP address

We collect and use this data during an informational visit exclusively in non-personal form. This is done in order to actually enable the use of the Internet pages you have accessed, for statistical purposes and to improve our online offer. Personal evaluation of the IP address does not take place at any time. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use on the basis of concrete evidence.

2.4 Use of our services

We only collect your personal data if you wish to make use of services offered by us on our website, in particular in the following cases:

  • Newsletter subscription
  • Access to the digital magazine

Depending on the purpose, data that is necessary for the respective processing is collected and stored, such as: name, company address, information about the profession exercised and e-mail address. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is art. 6 para. 1 GDPR.

3. Newsletter

On our website it is possible to subscribe to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input screen is transmitted to us. In order for you to subscribe to our e-mail newsletter service, we need to know the e-mail address to which the newsletter is to be sent, in addition to gaining your data protection consent. Further information will also be used to address you personally and to be able to personalize the content of the newsletter, as well as to clarify queries about the e-mail address by letter if necessary. We also use the data provided about your company and your position in the company to control the use of our service within the conditions of our Terms of Use.

In addition, we store the time of your registration as well as the date and time of confirmation via our double opt-in procedure.

For the processing of the data, your consent will be obtained during the registration process and reference will be made to this data protection declaration.

For newsletter distribution we use a double opt-in procedure. We will only send the newsletter if you first confirm your registration via the link contained in our confirmation e-mail. In this way, we ensure that only you as the owner of the e-mail address provided can subscribe to the newsletter.

Shipping service provider: The newsletter is sent by means of „MailChimp“ (hereinafter referred to as „Versanddienstleister“). The data protection regulations of the shipping service provider can be viewed here:

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on the servers of the shipping service provider. The shipping service provider uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, the shipping service provider may use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter, or for economic purposes to determine in which countries the recipients are located. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them directly or pass these data on to third parties.

Statistical collection and analyses: the newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server of the shipping service provider when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval, are collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data (for example, the screen size) or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our ambition nor that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our readers.

You can unsubscribe from a subscribed newsletter at any time. To do this, you can either send us an e-mail to or cancel via the link at the end of the newsletter. This also allows you to automatically unsubscribe from the monthly magazine.

3.1. Newsletter Tracking

In addition to the data collected during registration (see above), our shipping service provider transmits to us which newsletter has been read and how often (open rate) and whether, and if so which, links were clicked (click rate). Through the use of Google Analytics (see below - Section 7. Use of Google Analytics) we are also able to understand from which newsletter and via which link the users reach our pages.

The anonymous statistical collection of this data serves to measure the reach and to improve the content of our digital magazine and the newsletter.

We do not assign this information to an individual person at any time.

4. Digital magazine

In order to register with our digital magazine, we need your e-mail address and a password for access control, in addition to your data protection consent. We also use the data provided about your company and your position in the company to check the use of our service within the conditions of the Terms of Use.

For the provision of our digital magazine, we use an external service provider (hereinafter referred to as "magazine service provider").

We do not transmit any personal data provided by you. For technical reasons, however, your browser automatically transmits the following data to the magazine service provider each time the page is accessed:

  • Date and time of access to our website
  • Browser type
  • Browser settings
  • Operating system used
  • Last visisted page
  • Amount of data transferred and access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • IP address

The data protection regulations of the magazine service provider can be viewed here:

E-mail service providers: The sending of e-mails on user request (transactional e-mails, for example "forgot password") takes place via Mailgun (hereinafter referred to as "e-mail service provider"). The data protection regulations of the e-mail service provider can be viewed here:

The e-mail addresses of our digital magazine readers are transmitted to the e-mail service provider in order to deliver the e-mails. The e-mail service provider uses this information to send it on our behalf. Furthermore, the e-mail service provider may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, for example to determine in which countries the recipients are located. However, the e-mail service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them directly or to pass the data on to third parties.

4.1 Unsubscribing from the digital magazine

If you no longer wish to read the digital magazine and would like us to remove your access, please send an e-mail to:

5. Social media platforms

Our presence on social networks and platforms (hereinafter referred to as "social media presence") delivers a better, more active communication with you and other users. In accordance with art. 6 para. 1 GDPR, this serves to safeguard our interests in market research and advertising. Please note: when you access our social media presence, your data may be automatically collected and stored by the corresponding provider (e.g. Facebook or Instagram) for market research and advertising purposes. From this data, so-called user profiles may be created using pseudonyms. These can be used to, for example, place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are assumed to correspond to your interests. The detailed information on the processing and use of data by the providers on their pages, as well as a contact options and your rights in this regard, plus setting options for the protection of your privacy and in particular objection options (opt-out), can be found in the data protection information of the providers.

If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, all you need to do is deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of your browser. Stored cookies can also be deleted in the system settings of your browser. The exclusion of cookies may lead to functional restrictions of the online offer.

It is possible to manage many online advertising cookies via the US website or the EU website

We do not collect or store personal data in cookies.

7. Use of Google Analytics

Within our digital magazine we use the statistics software Google Analytics, from the company Google Inc.

Anonymous measured values about the use of our online services are transmitted to us. Analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its contents. Through the analysis of cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus continuously optimize our offer. Evaluation is only carried out for the duration of the respective online visit.

Google Analytics also uses cookies – text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation 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. 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, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to us as the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

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 the functions of our websites to their full extent.

Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found at

We would like to point out that on our websites where we use Google Analytics, the analysis service has been controlled by the code "anonymizeip" in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (known as IP masking).

8. Google reCAPTCHA

We use Google's reCAPTCHA service on our website to enhance security and protect against automated abuse, such as spam and unauthorized access. reCAPTCHA is a human verification tool that requires users to complete a challenge to prove they are not bots. This is relevant for maintaining the integrity and security of our website and preventing malicious activities. When you interact with the reCAPTCHA tool will be collected by Google. This includes:

  • Your IP-address
  • The referrer-URL - e.g. the URL you see in your browser
  • Your operating system
  • Cookies set by reCATCHA
  • Certain forms of user interactions like mouse movements and key presses. This is used to determine if you are human e.g. act more erratically than a bot would
  • The time you spend on the website. This is used to determine if you are humans. Bots rarely linger on page.
  • You language system language in order to present to you the Google reCAPTCHA terms and privacy banner
This data is used for the purpose of determining whether you are a genuine user and for improving the accuracy of the reCAPTCHA service. Please refer to Google's privacy policy ( for more details on how they handle and protect this information. By using our website and engaging with the reCAPTCHA service, you consent to the processing of your data by Google for the purposes mentioned above.

9. Integration of third-party services and content

In some cases content or services from third-party providers, such as city maps or fonts from other websites, are integrated into our online offer. The integration of third-party content always requires that the third-party providers perceive the IP address of the users, since without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the user's browser. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. Furthermore, the providers of third-party content can set their own cookies and process the data of the users for their own purposes. User profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. We will use this content as sparingly as possible and aim to minimise data collection and will always choose reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.

The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, as well as links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, the potential to object (so-called opt-out):

10. Data security

Travel Media Network CPR Verlags GmbH protects the information transmitted to it by means of technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data from accidental or intentional manipulation, destruction or unauthorized access. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. In particular, we do not store passwords in plain text and will never ask you for your password.

11. Rights of revocation, information, objection & deletion of personal data

Users have the right, upon request, to receive information free of charge about the personal data stored by us about them.

In addition, users have the right to correct incorrect data, to modify and delete their personal data. The data stored by us will in any case be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and where such deletion does not conflict with any statutory obligations to retain them.

We would like to point out that you can revoke your consent under data protection law at any time with effect for the future. All you need to do is send an e-mail to

12. Right of appeal

We would like to point out that you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority in the event of the assumption of potential unlawful data processing.

13. Transfer of personal data to third countries

It is possible that your personal data will be transferred by the above-mentioned third-party companies to countries outside the EU and processed there. Data processed in other countries may be subject to foreign laws and may be accessible to local governments, courts, law enforcement and supervisory authorities. Insofar as the third-party providers specify configuration options for setting the transferable data, we have limited these to the minimum required for our services.
Insofar as third-party providers based outside the EU offer standard contractual clauses to protect the data of EU citizens, we have concluded these. Since our offer is an advertising-based media offer and we do not have our own IT resources, it is in our interest that we use these functional and user-friendly services. The use of our services does not require the collection and processing of sensitive data (such as political preferences or health data) and we have not received any complaints in the past about the behavior with regard to data protection of any third-party providers that we have used.

14. Changes to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change our privacy policy in order to adapt it to changing legislation, changes in the service and data processing. Examples of this may be the collection of other data or the selection of other service providers. However, this only applies with regard to declarations on data processing. If your consent is required, or if components of the data protection declaration contain provisions of the contractual relationship with you, the changes will only be made with your consent. We would ask you to keep yourself regularly informed about the content of our data protection declaration.

15. Changes 26.02.2024

We added Google reCAPTCHA to our website and inserted the new section 8. Use of Google reCAPTCHA into our privacy policy to make transparent how we use Google reCAPTCHA.
