8. Data Processing During Registered Use of GREtour Services and Booking Rides

GREtour processes the following personal data provided by you when you register and use GREtoure Services or when you book rides (hereinafter “customer data”).

  • Personal master data (form of address, title, first name, last name, company, address, zip code, place, country, password);
  • Contact data (e.g. telephone number, cellphone number, e-mail address);
  • Contract data (e.g. time and manner of registration, status)
  • Ride-related data (e.g. pickup location, destination, times, flight number, special requests).
  • Status (e.g. bonus program), customer history (e.g. previous rides);
  • Contract invoicing (e.g. invoices, status, invoicing address) and payment data (e.g. last 4 digits of the credit card number).

The customer data will be used for GREtour services, i.e. for the personalized fulfillment of the framework agreement after registration, for the procurement of booked rides and for the fulfillment of the contract of carriage for the benefit of the customer with the limousine service provider. GREtour provides customer data to third parties, if necessary, in particular to the limousine service providers so that the customer can be transported in accordance with their booking and the transport can be processed.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data during the registered use of GREtour Services and during the booking of trips is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (contract performance). If the data subject provides additional, voluntary information (e.g. flight number, frequent flyer programme, special requests, rating), the legal basis is their consent according to Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit a GDPR and our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR.

In addition, GREtour processes customer data in order to analyse the use of the GREtour Services, to design and improve them in a demand-oriented and personalised manner, to advertise the GREtour Services, to detect, limit and eliminate malfunctions and problems of a technical or process-related nature and to prevent illegal use of the GREtour Services (e.g. fraudulent booking, cyberattacks). In this respect, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (legitimate interest of GREtour). Data will not be passed on to recipients in this respect unless to GREtour’s data processors (see Art. 28 GDPR) or as far as otherwise permitted by law.

9. Payment & Fraud Prevention

9.1 Payment

All GREtour bookings can be paid by credit or debit card. The credit card information only has to be stored once upon the first booking and is protected against unauthorized access. For this purpose, a certified payment provider is used whose systems meet the applicable security standards, such as the PCI DSS standard (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). For recurring transactions, the card data is stored with our assigned PCI DSS-certified payment provider. In this respect, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR (performance of contract).

GREtour itself does not store credit card data or only in abbreviated form for analysis purposes or to prevent fraud. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit f GDPR (GREtour’s legitimate interest)

In addition to card payment, you can pay for your bookings via PayPal in our mobile apps (Android / iOS). In this case, on the basis of Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR, personal data such as the e-mail address of your PayPal account and information about your mobile device (e.g. Device ID) will be transmitted by us to PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg, for the purpose of fulfilling the contract. For more information on data processing by PayPal, please visit: https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full

9.2 Fraud Prevention

To ensure that a payment instrument is used by its rightful owner and to prevent fraud, IP addresses, e-mail addresses, payment data and card information may be transmitted to one or more external fraud prevention service providers. This transmission may also contain additional personal data. The external fraud prevention service providers process these personal data on behalf of GREtour. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (legitimate interest of GREtour).

In the course of the authentication of the cardholder, it may also be necessary for individual transactions that GREtour requires a copy of an additional identification document (e.g. identity card, passport, drivers’ licence) or a copy of the credit card. GREtour will ask you to black out any data that is not required (e.g. the credit card number except the last four digits). In this respect, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (fulfilment of contract), your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

10. Communication with GREtour

If you contact GREtour (e.g. by phone, contact form, feedback form, chat, messenger, e-mail or social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter)), the data you provide will be processed to handle your request and to answer your inquiry. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent) and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR (fulfilment of contract and initiation of contract).

Contact data is also used by GREtour – pseudonymised or anonymised if possible – to design and improve GREtour services according to your needs, to identify and eliminate malfunctions and problems of a technical or process-related nature and to prevent illegal use of GREtour services (e.g. fraudulent booking, cyberattacks). In this respect, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR (legitimate interest of GREtour).

GREtour also uses external services and tools, e.g. messenger services or chat support tools, to communicate with the customer. The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (legitimate interest of Blacklane). Agreements on commissioned data processing exist with the respective providers – where necessary.

11. E-mail Advertising, Newsletter

If you have agreed to receiving advertising or if GREtour otherwise has the right, we will use your customer data to send you personalized advertising or general newsletters. The following data is mainly affected: Form of address, name, e-mail address. The purpose of the data processing is for GREtour to inform you regarding current offers and to draw attention to features of GREtour services.

E-mail advertising and newsletters may contain pixels. In this case, a graphic file is inserted into the e-mail sent in HTML format, based on which a statistical evaluation may be carried out. By using pixels, GREtour can detect whether and when e-mails have been opened and links contained therein clicked.

GREtour has the right, in context of legal permission to use the e-mail address, which you have provided regarding a chargeable booking, to directly advertise its own, similar products or services. If you do not wish to receive advertising from GREtour for similar products or services, you may at any time revoke the corresponding use of your e-mail address without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs in accordance with the base tariffs. To this end, you can use the unsubscribe link contained in any mail or you can write an e-mail to us using the above-mentioned e-mail addresses.

12. Involvement of Data Processors by GREtour

As far as GREtour involves third parties in its data processing, e.g. technical service providers or other GREtour subsidiaries, this is always done on behalf of GREtour and only if these processors offer sufficient guarantees that suitable technical and organisational measures are carried out in such a way that the processing is in accordance with the data protection requirements, in particular Art. 28 GDPR, and guarantees the protection of the rights of the data subject. If processors are located in third countries, the data protection requirements for the transfer pursuant to Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are complied with in each case. As a rule, the appropriate guarantees in third countries are established by means of an adequacy decision (Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR) or the agreement of standard contractual clauses (see Art. 46 para. 2 c) GDPR in conjunction with Art. 93 para. 2 GDPR).

13 Rights of Data Subjects

13.4 Right to the restriction of data processing (Art. 18 GDPR)

In these cases, your request to book a ride with GREtour will be refused. Such an automatic decision is required to conclude the contract (Art. 22 Paragraph 2 lit a GDPR). The data subject has the option of contacting us using the mentioned contact data in order to have an explanation or an intervention by a person or to express their point of view.

15. Data Erasure and Storage Duration

We will erase your personal data as soon as the legal basis for its processing lapses. However, legal bases may also exist in parallel or a new one may intervene with the lapsing of a legal basis, such as for example the duty to store determined data to fulfill a legal retention obligation (e.g. according to commercial or tax law).

16. Amendment or Update of this Privacy Policy

GREtour reserves the right to update or amend this privacy policy at any time without giving reasons, as far as this should become necessary, e. g. due to developments in legislation, jurisdiction or regulatory actions or due to further technical developments.

A distinction is also made between GREtour’s own cookies and those of third parties.

You may prevent the storage of cookies at any time using your browser settings or delete any cookies present. However, this may mean that some functions of GREtour services may not be available or available only to a limited extent. The storage duration is different depending on the cookie and can be inspected in your browser.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data when using cookies, pixels and similar technologies is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit a (consent) and lit f GDPR (GREtour’s legitimate interest).

In the context of your visit, GREtour will set the required cookies, which are technically necessary, to improve functionality or make the use of GREtour services more user-friendly. This concerns, for example,

  • Your identification and authentication,
  • Storage and user preferences and settings (e.g. language settings), which you have made,
  • the inclusion of information already provided so that repeated input of information is not necessary,
  • security-related cookies or
  • cookies for using multimedia players

GREtour also uses its own cookies in order to analyze and improve the usage of GREtour services, to detect and remedy interruptions and problems of a technical or process-related nature and to prevent illegal usage of GREtour services (e.g. fraudulent booking, cyberattacks). Evaluations by GREtour take place in pseudonymized or anonymized form as far as is possible.

Additionally, GREtour uses its own cookies, pixels or similar technologies or those originating from advertising partners (e.g. search engine providers, advertising networks or distribution partners) in order to improve GREtour services or to measure, evaluate, design and improve advertising measures. GREtour uses different analysis tools in this regard. In this respect, an evaluation by GREtour takes place in pseudonymized or anonymized form as far as is possible.

The following cookies, pixels and similar technologies may be used in the context of GREtour’s services:

Google Ads (former Google AdWords Conversion Tracker)

GREtour uses the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and as part of Google AdWords, the conversion tracking of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

We use the Google AdWords service to bring attention to our services with the help of adverts (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. The cookie for conversion tracking is placed when a user clicks on an AdWords advert placed by Google. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer system. These cookies generally become invalid after 30 days and do not allow personal identification. If you visited a certain site and if the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that you have clicked on the advert and were taken to this site. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The collected information by use of the conversion cookie serves to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers find out the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and were taken to a page provided with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information by means of which users can be personally identified. The data collected will be stored and processed in the USA.

If you would not like to participate in tracking, you may block its usage by deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie in your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Google reCAPTCHA

GREtour uses the service, Google reCAPTCHA from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Google reCAPTCHA serves to determine, during the booking process of a ride, whether the booking was made by a human or whether the supposed customer is an improperly used computer (“Bot”). Google makes this distinction using a small test, so-called reCAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart). In order to confirm a booking, you must for example check a box or sort images according to a certain rule. It can then be discerned whether the visitor is a computer or a human, Google uses data such as IP address, browser, screen resolution, click behavior and, if necessary, other required data (e.g. cookies).

In addition to simply sending e-mails, MailChimp provides different analysis options to inform us of whether, when and where the distributed emails are opened, used or rejected. To this end, MailChimp uses, amongst other things, cookies and similar technologies.
