Data collection on our website
Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
This data protection declaration applies to the use of all our Internet pages accessible under the domains www.followmetogreece.com www.tdsreisen.de or www.tdstravel.de, www.gotopelion.com, www.gotopilion.com (and all other domains owned by TDS Travel und Data Service GmbH). It concerns the collection, processing and use (hereinafter: "use") of your personal data (hereinafter: "data"). Personal data includes, for example, your name and address, your email and IP address, usage data attributable to you, etc.
The responsible body within the meaning of the data protection laws is TDS Travel and Data Service GmbH, Müllerstrasse 47 80469 Munich, Germany.
How do we collect your data?
It is not necessary to provide personal data for purely visiting and researching our website. In this case, we do not collect any personal data from you.
Every time a user accesses Internet pages and every time a file is retrieved, certain data about this access inevitably accumulates for technical reasons, e.g. about the number and duration of visits to individual pages, and is stored on our server. This data is not personal. They are only evaluated statistically and used for the further development of our internet pages. Under certain circumstances, the IP address of your computer may be personal, which we either do not use or only use pseudonymously and in each case within the legally permissible scope.
If you send us a request for information or a travel reservation, on the other hand, we require various personal data from you in order to send you the requested information in the desired way.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour. This includes information such as name, address, e-mail, age, postal address, telephone number, etc.
We only use, process and store personal data if you provide it to us of your own accord or if it is required. This occurs in particular when booking a trip, filling out a form (e.g. contact form) or sending e-mails. Your data will be treated confidentially in accordance with data protection regulations.
We only pass on the data that is necessary for us to fulfil our contractual obligations and for third parties to ensure a smooth process, in particular to process a concluded contract, or if their storage is required for other legal reasons. This means in particular the forwarding of the personal data required in each case for the travel or travel agency contract concluded with us to our service providers such as airlines, hotels, car rental agencies, destination agencies, travel insurance companies and the like. The data will only be used for the specified purpose and will only be stored for as long as is necessary for the intended purpose of the data collection or as long as is required by law. Data will not be passed on to third parties except for the purposes stated.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data.

The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You will find detailed information on this in the following data protection declaration.
You can object to this analysis. We will inform you about the objection options in this data protection declaration.
General notes and mandatory information
Your data protection
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. To do so, simply send an informal e-mail to email@example.com. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at TDS Travel and Data Service GmbH, Müllerstrasse 47 80469 Munich.
Objection to advertising e-mails
The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.
Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
We, as the data controller, will only process and store your personal data for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected or if this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which we, as the data controller, are subject.
If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We will no longer process the personal data in the event of objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If we process personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising.

If you wish to exercise this right of objection, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out by us for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between you and us, or (2) it is made with your explicit consent, we will take reasonable steps to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on our part, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

If you wish to exercise your right to withdraw consent, you can contact our data protection officer at any time.
Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the performance of a travel contract, the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our business or a participant in our trips were to be injured and as a result their name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1)(d) GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of ours (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).
Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for you to provide us with personal data that subsequently has to be processed by us. For example, you are obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with you. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with you could not be concluded. Before you provide personal data, you can contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform you on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
Our collection and use of personal information
Personal data is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact an individual person. You may choose to provide us with personal data when you use our services. As we change our features from time to time, the options you have to provide us with personal information may also change, but here are some examples of situations where you may choose to provide us with personal information:
If you contact us for any reason, for example by email, including for technical support or customer service;
When you make a payment; and
Use of our services when personal information is required for use or participation.
The information we collect from you varies depending on which of our services you use. However, the information you provide may generally include the following:
Name, email address, address, telephone number, username and payment information (including credit card numbers collected through a secure third party payment processing company).
Information about your activities and interactions with our Services (e.g. your IP address, the type of device or browser you are using, your geographic location and your actions on the Website); and
Messages you send to us (for example, when you ask for support, send us questions or comments, or report a problem).
Because we ask you directly for personal information in these cases, you can often tell from our specific requests what types of information we receive from you.
We collect this information for the following reasons, among others:
To understand your needs and provide you with a better service;
For statistical and analysis purposes for administrative purposes to manage or improve our products and services;
for internal record keeping and administrative purposes and to inform you about our events, services or products or other related information that we think may be of interest to you, as explained above;
to send you marketing messages, newsletters and details about our business or the businesses of carefully selected third parties that we think may be of interest to you, by post or email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer wish to receive marketing messages); and
From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes or to customise the website and mobile app to your interests.
a) When visiting the website
You can access the website https://followmetogreece.com without having to disclose any information about your identity. The browser used on your terminal device only automatically sends information to the server of our website (e.g. the operating system of your computer and the browser you are using, the name of your Internet access provider, the name and URL of the file accessed, the date and time of access, the website from which access was made).
This also includes the IP address of your requesting end device. This is temporarily stored in a so-called log file and automatically deleted after 4 weeks:
The IP address is processed for technical and administrative purposes of connection establishment and stability, in order to ensure the security and functionality of our website and to be able to pursue any illegal attacks on it if necessary.
The legal basis for the processing of the IP address is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the aforementioned security interest and the necessity of a trouble-free provision of our website.
We cannot draw any direct conclusions about your identity from the processing of the IP address and other information in the log file.
b) When registering on our platform
As a Traveler, you can browse offers of holiday homes and holiday flats on our platform and make corresponding booking enquiries to the respective Owner. A free registration for the mediation of an enquiry or booking for a holiday accommodation as a Traveler to a provider of a holiday accommodation is obligatory. This also allows you to use extended functionalities such as the management of your booking requests and communication with the Owner.
As a Owner, you must register on our platform in order to be able to offer holiday flats and holiday homes on our platform.
In the course of registering on our website as a Traveler or Owner, we collect and store the following data from you as mandatory information:

In your user account, you can later voluntarily provide further information.
The collection and storage of this data takes place,
to know who our contractual partner is;

Fulfilment of the contract of use or agency contract between us and the user;
to check the plausibility of the data entered;
to contact you if necessary
The processing within the scope of the registration takes place upon your request and is necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR for the aforementioned purposes for the use of the platform and thus for the fulfilment of the contract and pre-contractual measures.
We also use your email address collected in the course of registration or in the course of contract performance to inform you by email about our own services or goods or generally about https://followmetogreece.com. In this case, the processing of the e-mail address is based on our legitimate interest in advertising our goods and services (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).
Your stored data will be saved for the duration of the contractual relationship with you and then deleted.

The processing is carried out upon your request and is necessary for the aforementioned purposes for the fulfilment of the contract and pre-contractual measures in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
If you send an enquiry as a registered Traveler, the information you provide will be stored as a booking enquiry in your user account until it is deleted.
d) When using our contact form
You can send us general enquiries via the contact form on our website. Your surname and a valid e-mail address are mandatory. Further data such as a message can be entered voluntarily.
This data is collected in order to know from whom an enquiry originates and to be able to answer it in the best possible way. The data processing is carried out upon your request and only insofar as it is necessary in the context of answering a contact request for the implementation of pre-contractual measures pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR or for the protection of legitimate interests of us or third parties pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR.
The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after complete processing of your request.
e) When registering for our newsletter
If you have expressly consented in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) GDPR, we will use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address.
You will then receive a registration notification by e-mail, which you must confirm in order to receive the newsletter (so-called double opt-in). This serves as proof that the registration was actually initiated by you.
You can unsubscribe at any time, e.g. via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can also send your unsubscribe request at any time by e-mail to email@example.com.
Information collected by automatic means
We may obtain certain personal and non-personal information through automated means when you use our Services. The type of information we collect through automated means may vary, but generally includes technical information about your devices, such as IP address or other device identifier. The information we collect may also include usage data and statistics about your interaction with our services. This information may include the specific page of our websites or mobile game you visited, page views, time spent on a page, number of clicks, platform type and other information about how you used our service.
When you access our service using a mobile device, we receive information about the location of your device. In some cases, even if you are not using a mobile device, information about your general location may be apparent from the IP address of your device or the URLs you receive.
We use the information we collect in an automated way to understand our users and determine their preferences. This allows us to develop and deliver new or modified offers that are improved taking into account our users' preferences.
The following are some of the types of automatic data collection that may occur when you use our websites:
When you visit our website, your browser automatically sends us your Internet Protocol (IP) address so that the web pages you request can be sent to your computer or device. We use your IP address to determine additional information, such as whether the computer or device has been used to visit our website before, which website features have been used most frequently and how much time has been spent on a page.
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
The cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data according to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

* Browser type and version
* Operating system used
* Referrer URL
* Host name of the accessing computer
* Time of the server request
* IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Data transmission upon conclusion of a contract for services and digital content
We only transmit personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the processing of the contract, for example to the credit institution commissioned with the processing of payments.

Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the 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.
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
Order data processing
We have concluded an order data processing contract with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item "Objection to data collection".
Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This function makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one end device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalised advertising messages can be displayed on every device on which you log in with your Google account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users, which are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device ad advertising.
You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalised advertising in your Google account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The aggregation of the collected data in your Google account is based exclusively on your consent, which you can give or revoke at Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). In the case of data collection processes that are not merged in your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merging), the collection of data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest results from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymised analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
Further information and the data protection provisions can be found in Google's data protection declaration at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising programme of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").
Within the framework of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Plugins and tools
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Plugins of the social network Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA) are integrated on our pages. You can recognise the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the "Like" button on our site. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here:http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our pages, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server via the plugin. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook "Like" button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages on your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook. You can find further information on this in the Facebook
data protection declaration at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign your visit to our pages to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
Collection and sharing of information: You can
use the Google +1 button to publish information worldwide. Via the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have given +1 for a content and information about the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1s can be displayed as notices together with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and ads on the internet.
Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name you used when sharing content via your Google Account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
Use of the information collected:
Functions of the Twitter service are integrated on our pages. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc, Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the "Re-Tweet" function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. Data is also transferred to Twitter in the process.
You can change your privacy settings on Twitter in the account settings athttp://twitter.com/account/settings.
