Privacy policy

In times of increasing digitalisation, the protection of privacy and personal data is more important than ever. LIBRE and all persons behind it will therefore comply with the legal regulations in the interest of your data security in all data processing procedures.

The following privacy policy informs you how and to what extent data is processed by us (LIBRE) and what rights you have as a data subject in connection with the data processing. Furthermore, this data protection declaration also applies to all persons who use the services of the person responsible via other media (e.g. e-mail, telephone).

Please read the data protection statement carefully before confirming and accepting it.

  1. General information

    1. What is personal data?

      Personal data is data that reveals or can reveal the identity of the user (e.g. name, address, telephone number, date of birth, bank details and IP address).

    2. For what purpose are data processed by us?

      The processing of your data is necessary so that we can carry out or fulfil the services we offer, such as bookings, transfers, discount campaigns, vouchers and credits or the affiliate program.
      The data will therefore be stored, processed and, where necessary, transferred to third parties for these purposes - contract processors as well as service providers operate under their own responsibility and service providers may be in third countries for the purpose of fulfilling charter contracts and the services agreed upon.

    3. What is the legal basis for data processing?

      The data processing carried out by us is based on the following legal basis:

      • the consent to the processing of data
      • the fulfilment of our pre-contractual and contractual obligations,
      • legal, contractual or other legal obligations on our part (e.g. documentation obligations and rights under accounting, tax and customs law, contracts, reporting, litigation and § 96 TKG and
      • our legitimate interests (e.g. improving customer service, including in the field of advertising, or protecting our own legal interests)
  2. Data protection officer

    The person responsible within the meaning of the data protection regulations for all data processing processes carried out via the website (in short "website") is the operator of the website:

    Ing. Norbert Karl Adam e.U.,
    FN 500632 z
    Schmiedgasse 32
    8430 Leibnitz
    Tel: +43 676 898482108
    Fax: +43 316 694840,

    All requests and enquiries from data subjects regarding data protection should be addressed to the person responsible at the address provided.

    We have not appointed a data protection officer, as the legal requirements for this are not fulfilled.

  3. Data processing on our website

    1. Data from users are processed by us in principle to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website and the contents and services. As a rule, the processing of our users' data is only carried out after the user has given their consent, prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and/or the processing of the data is already permitted by law.
    2. In principle, personal data is only stored as long as the purpose for which it was collected remains. Further storage after the completion of the purpose, only occurs to the extent that this is required due to legal (in particular tax) regulations.
    3. Usage data (pending from the registration forms)

      In the course of the use of our website we log the following data (so-called "usage data"), the storage of which serves exclusively internal
      system-related and statistical purposes:

      • Origin (country and city)
      • Language
      • Operating system of the user
      • Device (PC, Tablet PC or Smartphone)
      • Browser used and all add-ons used
      • computer resolution
      • Visitor origin (Facebook, search engine or referring website)
      • Downloaded files
      • Information about viewed videos
      • Information, whether and which advertising banners were clicked
      • Where did the visitor go? Did they click on other pages of the portal or did they leave them completely?
      • Length of stay of the visitor

      The data is also stored in the log files of our system. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

      The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
      It is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. The data also serves to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
      The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose of collection. In the case of the collection of data for the purpose of providing the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
      In the case of data stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible.
      In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible
      The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

    4. Personal data

      On our website, we offer users the opportunity to register and request an offer by providing personal data, to make a charter inquiry or a general request and to apply as an affiliate partner. The data is entered into the respective input mask and transmitted to us and stored.
      The following data will be processed:

      • Name and surname
      • Date of birth
      • Country of birth
      • Citizenship
      • Address
      • E-mail
      • Phone number
      • Gender
      The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given their consent. If the registration serves the fulfilment of a contract to which the user is a party or the implementation of pre contractual measures, the additional legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

      The data shall be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection and no legal obligations to retain them exist.

      This is the case for the fulfilment of a contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures if the data is no  longer necessary for the implementation of the contract. Even after conclusion of the contract, it may still be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations. If the data is necessary for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of
      pre-contractual measures, an early deletion of the data is only possible if there are no contractual or legal obligations that prevent deletion.

  4. Transfer of data to third parties

    1. We use the data provided by you to answer your inquiries, to process contracts, to process your order in the web shop and for the technical administration of our website.
    2. Your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transferred to third parties if the transfer is necessary for the purpose of processing the contract or for invoicing purposes or for the collection of payment or if you have given your express consent. In addition, we are entitled to pass on personal data for collection purposes and reserve the right to exchange data with protection organisations in the economy (e.g. credit protection associations); only if the legal requirements are met.

      The data is passed on in particular to the customer's contractual partner within the framework of the conclusion of a charter contract. This contractual partner may also have their residence/registered office in a country outside the EU community territory.

    3. Payment processing via our website is carried out by the external payment service provider Stripe, 510 Townsend Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (hereinafter "Stripe"). If you pay by credit card, a connection to the online payment system of Stripe is automatically established via a technical interface. The payment data provided by you will be transmitted to Stripe via an encrypted connection for the sole purpose of payment processing and will be stored and processed there. The processing of the data also takes place exclusively for the aforementioned purpose of processing the payment of your order, whereby the payment data must be passed on by Stripe to the credit institution you have specified, if necessary, in order to trigger and authorise the payment process.
