2. Data processing and data transfer
2.1 Processing by Lts Limos

Data will furthermore only be processed if the user has given his/her consent herein.
In order to constantly improve and develop the Lts Limos Services, Lts Limos will make use of analysis tools to obtain information such as usage behaviour in the use of the Lts Limos Apps and the website, for how long, the origin of the user with regard to the channel, the name of the website accessed, files downloaded, date and time of access and the type of browser used etc. We will also use any data connected with the use of our services to create advertisements for our services that are optimized for the interests of the user.

Should you not wish to receive advertisements for similar products or services, you can object to the use of your e-mail address at any time without incurring any costs beyond the basic costs of transmission. You may unsubscribe from our product recommendation by clicking on the respective link provided in each e-mail.
Lts Limos will only transfer data to third parties for the purposes of fulfilling the contract or with the user’s consent. In particular, this includes Lts Limos transferring the user’s personal data to the required extent to transport service providers who have to carry the user.
Partner companies that are responsible for the technical processing of certain parts of the services offered by Lts Limos (such as payment processing, dispatch of the driver’s contact information etc.) will also obtain certain data to process in a so-called data processing procedure. In such cases, the amount of data transmitted will, however, be limited to the required minimum.
Personal data will only be transferred to government offices and authorities in accordance with mandatory statutory provisions.
3. Data Security
Lts Limos will always strive to process personal data taking all appropriate technical and organizational measures in order to ensure that they are secure and, in particular, that they are not accessible to unauthorized persons. In this respect, Lts Limos expressly points out that communication by email cannot guarantee total data security. Lts Limos thus advises any confidential information to be sent by post.
In order to protect the user’s data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons in the best way possible, Lts Limos will take appropriate technical and organizational security measures that can be optimized constantly in accordance with technical development.
4. Analysis tools
The use of Lts Limos will leave user-related information on the user’s computer in so-called “cookies”, that allow the Lts Limos Services to be operated smoothly with extreme ease for the user. It is nonetheless possible for the cookies to be deleted after each use. In order to do this, the user should consult the documentation provided in the respective access programme (“browser”).
When Lts Limos is used, data relating to the user is also saved automatically; this includes any websites visited, the length of each visit, the origin of the user with regard to the channel, the name of the website visited, the file, date and time of access, the quantity of data transmitted, report of successful access, browser type together with the version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (the previously visited site which referred to the website of Lts Limos), the IP address and the requesting provider. This data is used, to the extent legally permissible, in order to analyze, save and evaluate user behavior, and to constantly improve and develop the service.
In doing this, in addition to cookies we also use so-called tracking pixels that record, for example, the pages visited (on Lts Limos’s own site but also those of third parties or newsletters).
Lts Limos will also collect this data using the technologies of third party service providers. In particular, in order to analyze the user behavior on the Lts Limos site, we avail ourselves of the various functions offered by search engine providers, advertising networks and distribution partners around the world who connect to third-party sites by clicking on advertisements. These technologies make it possible to measure the success of an advertising placement, also because we can use this to make the subsequent usage behavior visible on our own websites. Below is a detailed description of some of these analysis tools:
4.2 Google analysis tool
Lts Limos uses Google Analytics, Google AdWords/Google Conversion Tracking and Google Remarketing Technology as well as the Google Tag Manager: all web analysis services of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google”).
The user can prevent cookies from being set up by adjusting the settings in his/her browser software. If the user decides to do this, he/she will not be able to use all functions of Lts Limos Services. The processing of data with regard to Google Analytics can be stopped at any time with immediate effect, by installing an appropriate browser plug-in of Google.
4.2.1 Google Analytics
As an AdWords customer, Lts Limos will use Google Conversion Tracking, which is also an analysis service of Google Inc. In this process, Google AdWords sets a cookie on the user’s computer (“conversion cookie”), providing the user has reached the Mobile Services through a Google advertisement. This cookie becomes invalid after 30 days and is of no use with regard to the personal identification of the user. If the user visits certain sites within the Mobile Services and the cookie has not yet expired, Lts Limos and Google will be able to detect that someone has clicked on the advertisement and has thus been redirected to the relative site. Each AdWords customer will receive a different cookie. It is thus not possible to keep track of cookies via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookies serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers, who have opted for conversion-tracking. AdWords customers learn the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and have been redirected to a site with a conversion-tracking-tag. However, they do not receive any information with which the user can be personally identified. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking procedure, you can also refuse the setting of cookies necessary for this purpose – for example by means of the browser setting that automatically disables the general setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion-tracking by setting your browser in such a way that cookies are blocked by the domain “googleadservices.com”.
4.2.2 Google Adwords/Google Conversion Tracking
4.2.3 Google Remarketing Technology
Lts Limos also uses Google Tag Manager, also a Google product, that makes it possible to manage website tags through a single interface. The Tag Manager is a cookie-free domain and does not record any personal data. The tool allows other tags to be triggered off that can, in turn, record data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If domains or cookies have been disabled, this situation will remain for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
4.2.4 Google Tag Manager
Lts Limos uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”, which means that any IP addresses that are transmitted to Google Analytics are first shortened and further processed on servers located in Europe, in order to exclude any direct reference to the user. Google will use this information in order to evaluate the visit to the website, to compile reports on the website activities for Lts Limos and to provide further services connected with use of the website and internet. Google will furthermore transmit this information to third parties, if necessary, to the extent legally prescribed or if third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google will not, under any circumstances, connect the user’s IP address with other data of Google.
4.3 Integration of third-party services and contents
This always requires the provider of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “Third-party providers”) to observe the IP address of the user. Without the IP address in fact, they would not be able to send the contents to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus necessary in order to represent these contents. We strive to use only the contents of providers who use the IP address for the mere purpose of delivering the contents. However, we do not have any influence on whether or not the third party providers use the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. If we are aware of this, we will inform the user accordingly.
Lts Limos also uses the Remarketing Technology service of Facebook (Facebook, Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025). This basically works in the same way as described above for the Technology of Google. You can find further information under https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. Lts Limos also uses a conversion-tracking tool and the following use analysis, as described above, and other search engine providers such as Microsoft (Bing), Yandex (Russia), Baidu (China) and Yahoo (e.g. for Japan), as well as other distribution partners including Twitter, and third parties.
5. Google reCAPTCHA
Lts Limos uses the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google Inc. (Google) to protect your submissions via internet submission forms on this site. This plugin checks if you are a person in order to prevent certain website functions from being (ab)used by spam bots. This plugin query includes the sending of the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the Google reCAPTCHA service. For this purpose, your input will be communicated to and used by Google. However, your IP address is previously truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area and is, as such, anonymized. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of Lts Limos, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address provided by reCAPTCHA from your browser shall not be merged with any other data from Google.
By using the reCAPTCHA service, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
6. Social media functions
Lts Limos uses the social media functions of Twitter, Google (Google+) and Facebook (especially Facebook Messenger).
The Twitter functions are provided by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the functions integrated on our sites, information such as the websites visited connected with the Twitter account and disclosed to other users [sic]. In this process, data is transmitted to Twitter. Lts Limos does not receive any information about the contents of the data transmitted or their usage by Twitter.

Google+ is provided by Google Inc. (see also point 4.2 above). If further websites are called up using the Google+ tool, data is sent directly to Google. Further information on the processing and use of the data by Google, as well as any setting options, can be taken from Google’s data protection advice, which can also be found under https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.
If you do not wish data to be collected on our websites through Google+ or Twitter, please log out of the relative user account of the respective service before calling up our websites.

A certified payment provider is used for this purpose, whose systems meet the applicable security standards such as the PCI-DSS standard (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).

8. Contact, deletion, information and reporting/consent gave
On application, the user will receive information about the data he/she has saved, free of charge. The user also has the right to delete his/her personal data or, if this is incorrect, to have it corrected. Personal data that must be stored due to mandatory legal provisions will be blocked.
