  1. General notes and mandatory information

data protection
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data that can be used to identify you personally. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.
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.

Note on the responsible body
The data controller for this website is:

Hanover Marketing & Tourism GmbH
Managing Director Hans Christian Nolte
Vahrenwalder Str. 7
30165 Hanover
Phone: 0511-1234900
E-mail: info@hannover-marketing.de

The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses or similar).

Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. 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 the data protection officers and their contact details can be found in 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 orders or 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 the address given in the imprint.

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.

  1. Social media

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: https://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 more information on this in Facebook's privacy policy at: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

Use of the "Hanno" chatbot

We use the chatbot "Hanno" from Dr Schengber & Friends GmbH, Schorlemerstr. 12-14, D-48143 Münster (DSaF) on our website to improve accessibility and communication with users and interested parties.

Information on data protection at the provider DSaF can be found here: https://botcamp.ai/datenschutz/

We have concluded an order processing contract with DSaF, which provides sufficient guarantees for data processing that complies with data protection regulations and is secure.

The chatbot software used on this site utilises machine learning to better understand and respond to user input. For this purpose, the input is sent to external servers and analysed there. This is the only way to enable the chatbot to function. No personal data is requested or required at any point within the chatbot. Users are therefore not identifiable as long as they do not enter any personal data. The non-personal data entered is used for learning purposes and stored for training purposes. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Your IP address is collected by the system during use.

Purpose of data processing
The use of chatbots helps us to respond quickly and reliably to user enquiries on our website, thereby increasing user-friendliness and accessibility. Ultimately, its use also serves our advertising and marketing interests, as it enables us to get in touch with people interested in our services more quickly and effectively. The collection of your IP address serves to distinguish you from other visitors and chatters so that several chats are not opened at the same time by the same user. If you enter further data in the chat window, this is voluntary and the purpose is determined by your request.

Legal basis for data processing
Data processing is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this data processing lies in the aforementioned purposes and in being able to process your enquiry at all.

Duration of storage
The data and content of the chats are stored on the DSaF servers by the system for a maximum of 3 months, in some cases they are also deleted earlier by manual deletion by us.

Otherwise, we store the data collected on the basis of a legitimate interest until the legitimate interest no longer exists, a consideration comes to a different conclusion or you have effectively lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR (see the visually highlighted "Right to object to processing on the basis of legitimate interest" under C.). It is reviewed regularly, at least annually, whether the legitimate interest still exists. In particular, our interest no longer exists if the data is no longer sufficiently relevant to us with regard to the analysis and statistics of website use due to the passage of time, which can be assumed after three years at the latest.

Possibility of objection and removal
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you by us. If we cannot demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for further processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, we will then no longer process your data (see Art. 21 GDPR). You can contact us by post or email to do this. With the objection, however, our conversation also ends.

All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case, provided that there are no indications of any contractual warranty or liability claims or we have no claims against you. In all other cases, the data will be blocked so that only our management has access to this data and only for the purpose of the statutory retention reasons or for the purpose of defence or assertion of actual or potential claims until the expiry of the limitation period (see above our information on the duration of storage).
