Data Protection Declaration
Internet Data Protection Declaration
This Disclaimer applies for all components of the website of HTA Circuit Booking GmbH. If parts thereof stand contrary to the applicable legal opinion, the content and validity of all other parts of this text remain wholly unaffected.
HTA Circuit Booking GmbH takes the protection of your personal data very seriously and complies strictly with the rules of the data protection laws. We process personal data that are collected during your visit to our websites in compliance with the applicable data protection provisions. We neither publish, disclose to third parties without consent nor sell your data. Below we explain which data we capture during your visit to our websites and exactly how they are used:
1. Data collation and processing during access via the Internet
When you visit our websites, our web servers temporarily save every access in a log file. The following data are recorded and saved until automatically deleted following a statistical evaluation:
- IP address of the polling computer
- Date and time of the access
- Name and URL of the file being called
- Data volume transmitted
- Message confirming whether the call was successful
- Detection data of the used browser and operating system
- Website from which access was initiated
- Name of your Internet provider
These data are processed to allow use of the website (establish connection), for system security, for the technical administration of the network infrastructure and for optimising the Internet content. The IP address is evaluated only in case of attacks on the network infrastructure of HTA Circuit Booking GmbH.
We are unable to assign the data to specific individuals. These data are not merged with other data sources. Furthermore, the data are deleted following statistical evaluation. No personal user profiles are created. The German Broadcast Media Act (TMG) permits in accordance with § 15, para. 3 TMG the use of user profiles under a pseudonym, unless the user objects to such procedure. Should we make use of this option within our Internet content, we will make you aware of your right of objection at the place concerned.
Apart from the cases mentioned above, personal data will not be processed unless you give your explicit content to further processing.
2. Use and dissemination of personal data
Your personal data will be used only for the stated purposes and only to the extent required to achieve these objectives. Personal data are transmitted to government institutions and authorities only in the context of mandatory national legal regulations or if such transmission becomes necessary to initiate criminal proceedings in response to attacks on our network infrastructure. The data are not transmitted for any other purpose or sold on to third parties.
3. Consent to further use
The use of certain content on our website requires prior registration and further processing of personal data, including storing email addresses, user names and passwords for longer periods. By registering for our content, you are consenting to the use of such data you transmit to us.
By using the forms on this website, you permit us to store your personal data in accordance with the legal provisions in our system.
Newsletters and press release distribution list
To sign up for a Newsletter Service of HTA Circuit Booking GmbH, we need at least your email address to which the newsletter is to be sent. Any other details are voluntary and will be used for contacting you personally and clarifying any queries on the email address. For sending by post, we need your address data. For the press release distribution list, details of the press body for which you work are required so that we know a press body is actually being supplied. For the newsletter mailing, we normally use the double opt-in procedure. That means we will send you newsletters only when you have confirmed your registration after providing your email address via an email we will send you and a link contained therein. This is to ensure that only you yourself, as the user of the stated email address, can sign up for the Newsletter Service. You must send your confirmation shortly after receiving our email, otherwise your registration and email address will be deleted from our database. Until we receive your confirmation, our Newsletter Service will not accept any further registrations from this email address. You can de-register from our newsletters at any time. Either send us an email or cancel using a link at the end of the newsletter.
