Collection of personal data for informational use.

Personal data is information with the help of which a person can be identified, such as name and e-mail address, but also surfing behaviour on the Internet. When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not provide us with any information, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of data transmitted by your browser to enable you to visit the website (so-called log files, legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 f) DS-GVO). Log files are technically necessary for us or our host so that the website you have called up can be sent to your computer and displayed to you. They will be deleted within 7 days of calling up the website. The log files may contain the following data:

• IP address- Date and time of the request

•  Access status/HTTP status code
•  Amount of data transferred in each case
•  Website from which the request originates

These log files can also be used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website (legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 f) DS-GVO). In this way, we can detect possible errors such as incorrect links. In connection with your use of the website, the IP address of the computer you are using is recorded, among other things. Under certain circumstances, it may be possible to identify users of the website via the IP address. However, we do not evaluate the recorded IP addresses in this way. The evaluation of the IP addresses takes place solely on a statistical basis in anonymous form.

Personal data that we collect.

In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you must usually provide further personal data which we use to provide the respective service. If additional voluntary information is possible, it is marked accordingly.

When you complete a contact form, you provide us with your personal information, such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

If you book trips or components of our program, we collect data for the fulfillment of your contract with us:
Your personal data, such as your address, e-mail address, telephone number and date of birth, the personal data of your fellow travellers and, of course, the products or services you have booked. We may also need your passport data for processing in order to be able to transmit them to the airlines for necessary entry permits.

By transmitting personal data of other persons, you have to be sure that they agree and that you are allowed to transmit the data. You should also make sure that these people know how their personal data could be used by us.

Personal data will only be collected from you if you provide it to us voluntarily by filling out contact forms or sending e-mails, ordering services, making enquiries or making other contacts. Then we collect the information that comes about in the course of making contact, such as contact and correspondence data. We will only use the personal data collected from you for the purpose of providing you with the requested services (legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 b) DS-GVO), for our own information or advertising purposes (legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 f) and ErwG (47) DS-GVO) or for other purposes for which you have given your consent (legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 a) DS-GVO) and which are described in this data protection declaration.

When you contact us, your details will be stored for the duration of the statutory storage obligations (legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 c) DS-GVO) for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise, and then deleted.

Data transfer.

In order to book and perform the travel you request, we must share personal information about the travel services you have booked with our service providers, such as airlines, hotels and transportation companies.

We also work with carefully selected providers who perform certain functions for you. For example, with companies that assist us with IT services, data storage and linking, and the planning and delivery of travel services.

When we share personal information with other organizations, we require them to keep the information secure.  You may not use your personal information for your own marketing purposes.

We share only the minimum amount of personal information that enables our suppliers and trading partners to provide their services to you and us.

In order for you to travel to Southern Africa, it is sometimes mandatory (required by law by the authorities at the point of departure and/or destination) to disclose and process your personal data for immigration, border control, security and counter-terrorism purposes or for any other purpose deemed appropriate.

Some countries will only issue a travel authorization if you provide your enhanced passenger information. These requirements may vary depending on your destination and we recommend that you check this on a case-by-case basis. Even if it is not mandatory, we will be happy to assist you.

We would like to point out that we are entitled or obliged to provide information on data in individual cases by order of the competent authority, insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger by the police authorities of the Länder, to fulfil the statutory duties of the Federal and Länder Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the Federal Intelligence Service or the Military Counter-Intelligence Service or to enforce intellectual property rights (legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 c) DS-GVO).

Data security.

We take state-of-the-art precautions to protect your data from loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation and unauthorized access. Insofar as your data is collected and recorded by us, it is stored on specially protected servers. These are protected by technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. Access to your data is only possible for a few authorized persons. They are responsible for the technical or editorial support of the servers. All our employees are obliged to maintain confidentiality.

Cookies.

Cookies are stored on your computer when you use the website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive assigned to the browser you are using and through which certain information flows to the location that sets the cookie (in this case us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the website more user-friendly and effective. For example, we may use cookies to identify you for subsequent visits if you have an account with us. Otherwise you would have to log in again for each visit.

This website uses cookies to the following extent:
• Transient cookies (temporary use)
• Persistent cookies (temporary use)
• Third-Party Cookies (from third party providers according to separate information).

Transient cookies (legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 f) DS-GVO) are automatically deleted when you close your browser. This includes in particular session cookies. They store a so-called session ID, which can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the joint session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to the website. The session cookies are deleted when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies are used exclusively in connection with the web analysis services we use (legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 f) DS-GVO) and only for as long as the purpose requires; they have a maximum life of two years. You can delete cookies from your computer's hard drive at any time using your browser's data protection functions. In this case, the functions and user-friendliness of the offer may be restricted.

Cookies, which are not technically necessary for the provision of our service, are only set with your consent, which you can revoke at any time (legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 a) DS-GVO). By continuing to use the website with the appropriate browser settings, you consent to the use of cookies within the scope of this data protection declaration. In this way, you can inform us of your consent by setting your browser, for example by stipulating that you be informed about the setting of cookies and that they only be accepted if you expressly confirm this. In this way you can also determine that you allow the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, control the acceptance or rejection of third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use all the functions of this website.

Statistical evaluation of visits to this website - Webtracker.

We collect, process and store the following data when you visit our website: IP address, website from which the file was retrieved, name of the file, date/time of the retrieval, transferred data volume and notification of the success of the retrieval (so-called web log). We use the access data exclusively in non-personalised form for statistical purposes and for the continuous improvement of our Internet offer.

We use the web tracker Matomo (formerly Piwik) to evaluate visits to this website. Matomo (https://matomo.org) is an open source web analysis tool. The web tracking is done solely by us without any personal reference.

We host Matomo ourselves on secured servers in Germany. Definitely no data will be transferred to third parties.  We collect, process and store only data about the use of our site, such as the time spent on certain URLs, referrer links and the clickstream. We also collect data about your browser settings, such as the manufacturer and version of the browser, your screen resolution used and your operating system. If necessary, we also collect and store parts of your IP address and information about the loading speed of our website. From this data we can only create anonymous usage profiles in order to extract statistical information. Through Matomo web tracking, cookies are also used to distinguish recurring site visitors from first-time visitors. As described in the previous section, cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the memory of your Internet browser and have a separate ID and possibly other technical information. The data collected here will not be merged with any other personal data held by us without your separate consent. De-Anonymisation therefore does not take place.

The use of Matomo does not create any personal reference, since the behaviour of the persons concerned on the Internet is not made comprehensible. As far as a personal reference should arise, e.g.: after a login on our website which is not yet possible, we will use a legal basis for the processing of personal data. pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 lit.a DSGVO (consent), to obtain your explicit consent in advance before creating a personal reference.

The purpose of data processing for the implementation of web tracking is to analyse user flows. We do this in order to anonymously monitor the user-friendliness and functionality of our website and to constantly improve our website. It is used solely for the collection of statistical and non-personal data.

Your web tracking data collected by Matomo is only available in anonymous form. We therefore store the data indefinitely in order to be able to carry out long-term analyses.

You can prevent the collection of the aforementioned data and its processing by installing a Java Script blocker, which can prevent the collection of other website analysis data. Here you will find free tools that you can download from www.noscript.net or www.ghostery.com, for example.

In addition, you can click on the following opt-out button regarding Matomo web tracking:
