3.    Principles of data processing

Personal data refers to all information related to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, IP address or user behaviour. Information that we cannot use to identify you personally (or that would involve a disproportionate effort to do so), for example, by anonymising the information, does not represent personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. collecting, accessing, using, storing or transmitting such data) always requires a legal basis or your consent. Personal data that has been processed shall be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no further statutory retention obligations.

If we process your personal data in order to provide certain offers, we will subsequently inform you of the specific processes, the scope and the purpose of the data processing activity, the legal basis for the processing activity and the relevant storage period.

 

4.    Individual processing steps

a.     Provision and use of the website

When you access and use our website, we collect personal data that your browser automatically sends to our server. This information is temporarily saved in a log file. When you use our website, we collect the following information, which we need for technical reasons in order to display our website to you and ensure stability and security:

Every time a user accesses the website or the app and every time a file is accessed, access data related to this action is stored in a log file on our server. This data includes:

  • Browser type/version
  • Operating system used
  • Referring URL (the site previously visited)
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • Time and date of the server request
  • Volume of data transmitted and access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.).

This data is used to generate pseudonymised internal statistics that help us to analyse the use of the website, correct errors and improve our services. It is not used for any other purpose related to you individually. In particular, this data is not merged with other data sources. This data is automatically deleted after the statistical assessment. You can prevent your pseudonymised data being used for statistical purposes at any time by changing the settings in your browser to prevent cookies from being stored on your computer (see section 7).

The legal basis for the specified data processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The processing of the specified personal data is necessary to provide the website and therefore serves to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company.

The temporary storage of an IP address by the system is necessary for the purpose of transmitting the website to the computer of the user. The IP address of the user has to be stored for the duration of the session.

As soon as the specified data is no longer necessary to display the website, it will be deleted. The collection of data to provide the website and the storage of data in log files is necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, the user does not have the right to object to such use. The data may be stored for longer periods in individual cases if such storage is legally required.

b.    Reservations and bookings

You can make a reservation and/or booking on our website and in the app. When you do this, the following personal data will be entered into a form and processed by us:

  • Name and surname
  • Address
  • Email address
  • Phone number (if provided)
  • Company name (if provided)
  • Tax number (if provided)
  • Bank details or credit card information (if provided)

In order to process payments, we will share your payment details with the financial institution that has been engaged to process the payment and to any payment service provider we have engaged or the payment service you choose when you place the order. These companies may only use your personal data to execute the contract and not for any other purposes.

Personal data is processed in connection with a booking or reservation in order to execute a contract between you and Motel One in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) GDPR. This also applies to data processing that is necessary to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

As soon as the processed personal data is no longer necessary to execute the contract, it will be erased. After the conclusion of the contract, it may be necessary to store personal data concerning you in order to comply with contractual or statutory obligations. The data may be stored for longer periods in individual cases if such storage is legally required.

c.      Contact form and email correspondence

Our website provides a form for you to contact us electronically. The personal data you enter in the form will be transferred to us. If you use the contact form, the following personal data concerning you will be processed:

  • Email address
  • First name and surname
  • Any other personal data included in the message

Additionally, the following personal data will be stored when the message is sent:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of your message

Alternatively, you can contact us at the email address provided. In this case, your personal data that is transmitted along with the email will be stored. The personal data will not be disclosed to third parties in this context. The personal data will only be used to process your enquiry.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in responding to enquiries that you email to us. Additionally, pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, we have a legitimate interest in processing personal data during the sending process in order to prevent misuse of the contact form and protect our IT systems.

After we have processed your enquiry, the personal data will be erased unless the erasure is prevented by contractual or statutory retention periods. You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If you contact us by email, you can object to the processing of your personal data at any time. In this case, it will not be possible to process your enquiry any further. All personal data collected as part of your contacting us will be erased in this case unless the erasure is prevented by contractual or statutory retention periods.

d. Minors

Persons under the age of 18 should not provide us with any personal data without the consent of their parents or guardians. We do not request personal data from children and adolescents, nor do we collect such data or forward it to third parties.

5.    Email correspondence

a.     Evaluation email following a stay

After staying at a Motel One hotel, customers will receive an email asking them to rate their stay and suggest improvements.

The legal basis for the data processing activity carried out with respect to the use of your email address is Art. 6 (1f) GDPR. The processing of email addresses and the collection of evaluations is necessary to ensure the quality of the hotel and to optimise hotel services, and therefore helps to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company. This evaluation email is not used for any other purpose.

As soon as the specified data (email address and evaluation) is no longer required for the specified optimisation purposes, it will be erased immediately.

b.    Motel One newsletter

When registering for the Motel One newsletter, the user declared his/her consent to regularly receive a newsletter email containing news, campaigns and offers from Motel One (as well as articles related to the topic of hotels, travel and overnight accommodation). The personal data that Motel One processes to send the newsletter is not disclosed to other companies. Consent regarding use of your email address can be revoked at any time with future effect (newsletter@motel-one.de). In addition, a separate link located at the end of each newsletter can be used to unsubscribe from the newsletter.

You expressly gave the following declaration of consent when you subscribed to the newsletter on our website: https://www.motel-one.com/en/newsletter/ and we have logged this consent:

‘I would like to subscribe to the free Motel One newsletter and receive regular news and information about campaigns and offers from Motel One related to the topic of hotels and travel. My email address will not be disclosed to other companies. I can revoke my consent to receive the newsletter with future effect at any time at the website https://www.motel-one.com/en/newsletter/.’

c.     beOne newsletter

Users who have registered at Motel One as a beOne member on the website or via the app will automatically receive the beOne newsletter containing news and information about campaigns and offers from the membership programme.

In addition, you can cancel the beOne membership with immediate future effect by clicking ‘Delete profile’ while logged into your beOne profile and confirming the choice by clicking ‘Delete profile’ again in response to the question ‘Do you really want to delete your profile?’.

 

6.    Push notification

In the app, you can sign up to receive push notifications. Motel One uses the Firebase Cloud Messaging service, which is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google’). For detailed information about how Google uses personal data, please visit https://policies.google.com/privacy and https://firebase.google.com/support/privacy .

The push notifications can provide you with information about your next booking, or news and offers from Motel One.

To sign up for push notifications on iOS, you must opt in when your browser or device asks whether you would like to receive push notifications.

We evaluate anonymised push notifications for statistical purposes and can therefore determine whether and when push notifications have been displayed and clicked on. This enables us to determine which push notifications are of interest to recipients and tailor future notifications to the presumed interests of all recipients in order to increase the level of interest in our service.

You can withdraw your consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) GDPR to the storage and use of your personal data to receive our push notifications at any time with future effect. You can withdraw your consent by changing the settings on your device.

Disabling push notifications on iOS:

  • Open the ‘Settings’ app.
  •  Scroll down the list of apps until you see the name of the app for which you would like to turn off push notifications.
  • Tap the name of the app and then ‘Notifications’.
  • You can now turn off individual types of notification or disable push notifications completely.
  • Disabling push notifications on Android:
  • Open the notification panel at the top edge of your screen.
  • Long press a notification from the app for which you would like to disable push notifications until a menu opens.
  • Tap ‘App info’.
  • Untick the ‘Receive notifications’ box.

Your data will be erased as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. As such, your data will be stored for as long as push notifications are enabled.

 

7.    Processing and deletion

Motel One may, of its own initiative or at the request of the user, complete, correct or delete incomplete, erroneous or outdated personal data that Motel One has stored in connection with the operation of this website. If these processes are carried out at the request of the user, Motel One may only do so if the user has sufficiently identified him/herself. Identity is verified using a copy of a photo ID – which will of course be deleted immediately after the authentication has been completed – or using criteria that can only be known by the user. Motel One cannot agree to the user’s request if he/she is not properly identified.

In line with statutory provisions, Motel One deletes personal data immediately upon the user’s request, provided there are no mandatory retention obligations to the contrary.

 

8.    Disclosure of personal data to third parties

a.     Personal data is handled confidentially and in line with the statutory data protection regulations. Data is not disclosed to third parties without the user’s consent, unless doing so is required to carry out orders, process payments or process requests or it is permitted in accordance with the statutory provisions. External service providers are obliged to handle data confidentially and securely, and they may only use the data as required to carry out their duties.

b.    This is particularly true for any payments processed by external service providers as well as the exchange of data with SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden, Germany, for the purpose of credit checks if there is a legitimate interest or in the event of non-contractual conduct. SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden, Germany, stores and transmits data for credit checks to its contractual partners. The user’s legitimate concerns are taken into account in line with the statutory provisions.

c.     Otherwise, personal data is only disclosed if the user has given his/her express prior consent or if doing so is necessary for the prosecution of criminal offences. Personal data is only transmitted to the authorities or government agencies with the right to receive information if doing so is subject to a statutory obligation to provide information or there has been a court ruling to this effect. Your legitimate concerns are taken into account in line with the statutory data protection provisions. Where necessary, we may disclose your data to third parties on the basis of statutory requirements. We only comply with such requests if we are required to do so in line with statutory obligations.

d.    You may revoke the consent to disclose your data at any time and without the need to provide us with a reason.

 

9.    Protection of data

The protection of personal data is an important corporate principle at Motel One. This is achieved through, among other things, training, a company data protection officer and a written agreement with all employees and external service providers to maintain the confidentiality of data and comply with data protection requirements.

All technical and organisational, physical and computer systems and measures in the area of data protection, IT and information security help to protect stored data from damage, destruction and unauthorised access and to achieve the protection objectives of confidentiality, availability and integrity.

For the sake of security, personal data is collected with the use of an encrypted secure socket layer (SSL) connection (which can be recognised by the use of ‘https://’ at the beginning of the website address in the address bar of the internet browser).

In addition, Motel One takes all reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorised access to users' personal data as well as the unauthorised use or falsification of this data and to minimise the corresponding risks. However, the provision of personal data, whether this is done in person, on the phone or online, always involves risks, and there is no technical system that is completely impervious to manipulation or sabotage.

10.    Use of cookies

a.    Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (‘Google’).

On behalf of Motel One, Google uses this information to assess your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide other services related to use of the website and the internet to the website operator. The abbreviated IP address transmitted from your browser as part of the Google Analytics service will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your device by adjusting the browser settings accordingly; however, if you do this, you may not be able to fully use all of the website’s functions.

You can also prevent the collection of the information generated by the cookie related to your use of the website or app (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

In accordance with Article 6(1)(a) GDPR, this data processing is based on your consent, which you have granted us by ticking a box in the cookie banner. You can withdraw your consent at any time by unticking the box.

In the exceptional cases in which personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield. You can find more information about the EU-US Privacy Shield here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

You can find more information and Google’s privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB and https://privacy.google.com/businesses/processorterms/. More information about Google Data Studio is available at https://marketingplatform.google.com/intl/en_uk/about/data-studio/.

c.    OWAPro

This website uses the web analysis and online marketing controlling system “OWAPro” from Hurra Communications GmbH (‘hurra.com’) for web analysis and the optimisation of online marketing.

The provider of OWAPro is Hurra Communications GmbH, Wollgrasweg 27, 70599 Stuttgart, Germany.

Web analysis largely helps with the analysis of user streams on this website and the optimisation of online marketing campaigns. The following personal data may be processed by OWAPro: online IDs, including cookie IDs, IP addresses, device information, customer IDs, referring URLs, transaction data. Likewise, this data can be used to measure and optimise the success of advertising campaigns and their cost-benefit analysis in order to obtain information about which offers visitors order and which other activities they have initiated (known as conversion tracking). To this end, cookies that recognise an internet browser during a subsequent visit may be used. Unique online IDs (cookies IDs) in these cookies may be stored on your device.

OWAPro generally only processes pseudonymised data that hurra.com itself cannot assign to an identifiable natural person. IP addresses are automatically anonymised by OWAPro by default. Further information about the type and scope of personal data processed by hurra.com in OWAPro and the possible use of cookies can be found in the hurra.com privacy policy at: www.hurra.com/privacy

12.    Social plug-ins

We use the following plug-ins from Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter on our website.

a.     Facebook social plug-ins

The website contains ‘social plug-ins’ (‘plug-ins’) from the social network www.facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (‘Facebook’). The plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the appendix ‘Facebook Social Plug-in’ (http://developers.facebook.com/plugins). The website contains plug-ins that establish a direct connection between the user’s browser and Facebook’s servers as soon as the user accesses the website. The content of the plug-ins is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s browser and integrated into the website by the browser. Motel One has no influence over the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of these plug-ins.

As a result of the integration of the plug-ins, Facebook is informed that the user has accessed the corresponding website. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the user to his/her Facebook account. If the user clicks the ‘Like’ button or writes a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from his/her browser to Facebook and stored there.

According to its own information (https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084), Facebook saves the date and time of the visit to the site, the website visited and other technical details, such as IP address and browser-related data in order to further enhance Facebook services. The purpose and scope of the data collected and the processing and use of data by Facebook as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the user’s privacy can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

If the user is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him/her via Motel One and link it with his/her stored membership data, the user must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. However, even if the user is not logged into Facebook, it is possible that Facebook may learn about and save certain data.

If users wants to block Facebook social plug-ins in general, they can install and activate a corresponding extension on their browser, such as ‘Facebook Blocker’ (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/). 

b.    Instagram social plug-ins

Our website uses social plug-ins (‘plug-ins’) from Instagram, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo, e.g. in the form of an ‘Instagram camera’. When the user accesses our website containing such a plug-in, the browser creates a direct connection to Instagram’s servers. The content of the plug-ins is transmitted directly from Instagram to the user’s browser and integrated into the page. As a result of this integration, Instagram is informed when the user has accessed the corresponding page on our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not logged into Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If the user is logged into Instagram, Instagram can assign the visit to our website to the user’s Instagram account. If the user interacts with the plug-ins, for example by clicking on the Instagram button, this information will also be transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information will also be published on your Instagram account and displayed to the user’s contacts there. Motel One has no influence over the scope of the data that Instagram collects with the help of these plug-ins.

The purpose and scope of the data collected and the processing and use of data by Instagram as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the user’s privacy can be found in Instagram’s privacy policy: https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388. If the user does not want Instagram to assign the data collected on our website to his/her Instagram account, he/she must first log out of Instagram before visiting our website. The user can block the Instagram plug-in from loading with the help of browser add-ons, such as the script blocker ‘NoScript’ (http://noscript.net/).

c.     Pinterest social plug-ins

Our website uses social plug-ins (‘plug-ins’) from the social network Pinterest, which is operated by Pinterest Inc., 808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (‘Pinterest’). The plug-ins can be seen, for example, on buttons with the ‘Pin it’ icon on a white or red background. When the user accesses our website containing such a plug-in, the browser creates a direct connection to Pinterest’s servers. The content of the plug-ins is transmitted directly from Pinterest to the user’s browser and integrated into the page. As a result of this integration, Pinterest is informed when the user has accessed the corresponding page on our website, even if you do not have a Pinterest profile or are not logged into Pinterest.

This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from the user’s browser to a Pinterest server in the USA and stored there. If the user is logged into Pinterest, Pinterest can assign the visit to our website to the user’s Pinterest profile. If the user interacts with the plug-ins, for example by clicking on the ‘Pin it’ button, the corresponding information will also be transmitted directly to a Pinterest server and stored there. The information will also be published on Pinterest and displayed to the user’s contacts there. The purpose and scope of the data collected and the processing and use of data by Pinterest as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the user’s privacy can be found in Pinterest’s privacy policy at about.pinterest.com/en/privacy-policy. If the user does not want Pinterest to assign the data collected on our website to his/her Pinterest profile, he/she must first log out of Pinterest before visiting our website. The user can block the Pinterest plug-in from loading with the help of browser add-ons, such as the script blocker ‘NoScript’ (http://noscript.net/).

d.    Twitter buttons

The website also offers the ability to post articles and other content on Twitter. This service and a configured plug-in are provided by Twitter, Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The ‘tweet’ button allows users to share blog articles on Twitter. The button also shows the number of tweets a blog entry has received.

When the website is accessed, the code for the tweet button is requested directly from a Twitter server by the user’s browser and integrated into the website. Motel One therefore has no influence over the scope of the data accessed by Twitter. According to its own information (https://twitter.com/privacy), Twitter stores the message transmitted in the tweet as well as the meta data. According to the operator, this includes: the date and time of the tweet, the exact internet address (abbreviated, if necessary) where the tweet button is located and other technical data, such as IP address, browser type and operating system. Twitter does not indicate how long the information is stored. Further information from Twitter can be found here (https://twitter.com/privacy)

 

13.    Retargeting/interest-based advertising

This website uses the Criteo service offered by Criteo GmbH, Gewürzmühlstrasse 11, 80538, Munich, Germany. With the help of this service, users who have visited our website and expressed interest in our products and services are offered targeted advertising on this website and on other websites that also use the Criteo service.

•         According to Art. 18 GDPR, you can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data if the accuracy of the personal data is contested by you, the processing is unlawful, we no longer need the data and you oppose the erasure of the personal data because you need them to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims.

In the case of the processing of your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, you have the right pursuant to Article 21 GDPR to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation or if you object to direct marketing. In the case of direct marketing, you have a general right to object which must be adhered to by us without the need to specify a special situation.

 

17.    Data security and security measures

We undertake to protect your privacy and to treat your personal data as confidential. In order to prevent the manipulation, loss or misuse of your data stored with us, we apply comprehensive technical and organisational security measures which are reviewed regularly and which are adapted in line with technical improvements. These include, among other things, the use of recognised encryption methods (SSL or TLS).
Please note, however, that because of the structure of the internet it is possible that the data protection regulations and the above-mentioned security measures will not be observed by persons or institutions which are not within our area of responsibility. In particular, data disclosed in an unencrypted manner – e.g. data disclosed by email – may be read by third parties. We have no technical control over this. It is the user’s responsibility to prevent the misuse of the data he/she provides through encryption or another method.
