3. What is personal data?
Personal data is information which can be associated with you as an individual. Examples include your name, address, postal address, telephone number or e-mail address. Non-personal data are details such as the number of users of a site.

4. Collection, processing and utilization of personal data by German Transfer
Personal data is collected via the Platform when you choose to provide it, e.g., in the course of registration, the log-in process, completing forms, sending e-mails or in particular by making bookings. The personal data we may collect includes:
Contact information (such as name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number)
Account information (such as username and password)
Demographic information (such as age and gender)
Booking enquiry information
Geo-location information
Information about the device you use to access the Platform (such as IP address, operating system, and web browser)

We use this data for the purposes stated in each case or which are obvious from the enquiry, for example the booking enquiry data is used to satisfy your requirements. Your data is only used for commercial purposes in the course of our own advertising (including recommendation advertising) within the scope of what is statutorily permitted. Data is transferred to third parties only to the extent that this is necessary to fulfil the contract, e.g. to process a credit card payment through your credit card company. We may share your data within our group of affiliated companies, subject to these Privacy Terms. We may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) when we believe disclosure is necessary to prevent harm or financial loss, or (iii) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity.

We use your e-mail address to offer you similar customized goods or services. You may object at any time to the use of your e-mail-address for this purpose. You can send your objection to In addition, we would like to inform you that you can at any time file a general objection to any use of your data for the purposes of marketing or opinion research. This objection should be sent to:

or by e-mail to:

We reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided to us in a manner that is consistent with these Privacy Terms. Following such a sale or transfer, you may contact the entity to which we transferred your personal information with any enquiries concerning the processing of that information.

When you visit the Platform, we may also collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based or other do-not-track ("DNT") mechanisms, we do not respond to web browser-based DNT signals at this time.

If we also wish to use your personal data in the future for other purposes, we will always ask you for your consent. After giving consent you will be able to revoke your consent at any given time, and we will apply your preferences going forward. To improve our online services, we can store and use information about how you use our services and our websites. The data which is collected in this manner cannot be related back to a single person (pseudonymization). If you would like to opt out of this, please contact us at

5. Credit card data
During the booking process with German Transfer you have the option to provide your credit card details in order to pay for your ride by credit card. (The actual charge only occurs once the ride is completed.)

For the handling of payment via credit cards German Transfer secured a professional Payment Service Provider (PSP) called Wirecard (, that is certified to the PCI-DSS, and that is required to protect your credit card data.

German Transfer itself does not store any type of credit card data from your card; in order to allow you to use a card that has been already registered for future payments, we will only save a reference number that distinctly identifies your card with Wirecard.

6. Security, SSL technology
German Transfer has taken technical and organizational measures designed to protect your personal data, particularly against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. These security measures are constantly adjusted in line with technical developments. The transfer of personal data between your smart phone and our server is always encoded (SSL procedure, Secure Socket Layer).

7. Disclosure, correction and deletion of data
You can request from us at any time disclosure of data stored under your name or your e-mail address and have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. For this and other requests for disclosure, correction or deletion please contact us via letter by mentioning your name and your contact address. The data protection officer at German Transfer can be reached at this address below by post

German Transfer GmbH,
Hansaring 115,
D-50670 Köln

German Transfer deletes recorded and collected data as soon as and to the extent that this is legally stipulated. If deletion is prevented by an obligation under statute, company by-laws or contracts to retain the information for a certain period, the data is not deleted but rather simply blocked. In addition, courts, criminal investigation authorities or other legally appointed authorities based on statute may request the data or demand disclosure, and we will comply with such demand in accordance with applicable law.

8. Use of cookies
German Transfer uses cookies to analyze web traffic, optimize the performance and content of the Platform, gauge the efficacy of advertising campaigns and encourage trust and security in the Platform. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer by your Internet browser. Most of the cookies are deleted from your hard disk at the end of the browser sessions ("session cookies"). Other cookies stay on your computer and ensure that German Transfer can recognize your computer on your next visit and analyze your usage ("permanent cookies"). You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your web browser not to accept new cookies, to notify you of new cookies or to delete all cookies already stored. You can get help with changing your settings via the help function of your web browser or at Please note that some functions of the web page are only possible by using cookies. We therefore recommend not deactivating the cookie function.

9. Use of Google Analytics
Our platform uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). It uses the feature called "trackPageview". This transmits only page views and events, i.e. German Transfer sees which pages have been called up and which actions have been carried out. However, no personal data is transmitted to Google in this process. The information created about your usage of the Platform is sent to a Google in the USA in anonymized form and stored there. Google uses this information to evaluate your usage of the Platform, to compile reports for German Transfer on the activities on the Platform and to provide additional services associated with utilization of apps and the Internet. Google may also pass on this information to third parties, provided this is legally permissible or if this data is processed by third parties on behalf of Google. On no account will Google associate your IP address with other data stored by Google. For further information, see (general information on Google Analytics and data protection). You can find additional information at (general information on Google Analytics and Data Protection).

We only use Google Analytics with the activated IP anonymization. This means that the users’ IP address is shortened by Google for the member states within the European Union or for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is sent to and shortened by a Google server in the USA only in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google information.

You may prevent cookies used here from installing by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software; however please note that by doing this, you may not be able to use all the extensive features of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent data analysis by Google Analytics on this website by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

10. Google Tag Manager
The Platform uses the Google Tag Manager. This service enables the management of website tags via an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. That means: no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tag Manager activates other tags, which may in turn collect data. But Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been implemented at domain or cookie level this remains in place for all tracking tags, provided these were implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

11. Facebook
This website contains the plug-ins of the social network Facebook (e.g., the “Like“ button), network operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). When you interact with the plug-ins, as for instance when clicking the “Like” button, you can, as a Facebook registered user, automatically leave a note in your Facebook profile, letting your network of friends know that you liked the contents that you visited.

To that extent, our website allows for an ongoing data exchange with Facebook. Please note that data exchange or the connection to our website is already in place and does not depend on activating the social plug-in / “Like” button or on logging in to Facebook. If you do not want to allow Facebook to create a movement profile for you, please log out of Facebook. Closing the Facebook page is not sufficient. Please read about the purpose and scope of data collection and the additional data processing and usage by Facebook, as well as about your rights concerning this matter and settings to protect your privacy at:

12. Changes/Additions to this Data Protection Policy
German Transfer reserves the right to change and expand these Privacy Terms at any time. Please find information about the current status of our data protection policy at www.germantransfer. com/faq-datenschutz.html.
