Protection of data privacy

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.

Collection, processing, and use of your data

You can visit our site without providing any personal information. We only store access data without personal reference, such as the name of your internet service provider, the page from which you visit us or the name of the requested file. This data is evaluated solely for the purpose of improving our services and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

Personal data is only collected if you voluntarily provide it to us as part of your order for goods or when opening a customer account or registering for our newsletter. Your data will be used for the complete processing of the contract. We process your data ourselves; if we commission a third party to do so, this will be disclosed here. You can request information about the data used that concerns you personally at any time. Information may be refused, restricted or withheld only to the extent that an overriding interest so requires. By entering your data, you consent to their use for order processing and any necessary dunning and collection procedures. When registering for the newsletter, your e-mail address will be used with your consent for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time.

BoatDriver GmbH may contact you by e-mail to invite you to rate the service and/or products you have received from us to obtain your feedback and improve our service and products. As we work with an external company, Trustpilot A/S ("Trustpilot"), to collect customer feedback, we will share your name, e-mail address and reference number with Trustpilot for this purpose. If you would like to know more about how Trustpilot processes your data, you can view their privacy policy e here.

Use of cookies

We use cookies on various pages to make visiting our website more attractive and to enable the use of certain functions. These are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognise your computer on your next visit (so-called permanent cookies). These cookies are used to greet you with your username and make it unnecessary for you to re-enter your password or fill in forms with your data for subsequent orders. Our partner companies are not permitted to collect, process, or use personal data via our website using cookies.

What types of cookies do we use?

  • Google Analytics cookies: the usual tracking cookies from GA.

Third-party analytics and tools, social media:

Our website uses social plugins (hereinafter "plugins") from various social networks such as Facebook and Twitter (hereinafter "networks"). The plugins are marked with a logo or a text message. When you call up a page of our websites that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the networks' servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser by the networks and integrated into the website by the browser.

By integrating the plugins, the networks receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into one of the networks, it is possible that the networks assign the visit to your account with the corresponding network. If you interact with the plugins, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to the networks and stored there. For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the networks, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the data protection provisions of the relevant networks. If you do not want the networks to collect data about you via our websites, you must log out of the networks before visiting our websites. However, even if you are not logged into a network, websites with active network elements will send data to the networks. The networks may set a cookie with an identifier each time you visit the websites, which may be valid for a longer period of time. Since your browser sends this cookie along without being asked every time you connect to a network, the network in question could create a profile of which websites the user belonging to the identifier has called up. It would then also be possible to assign this identifier to a person again when logging on to the networks later.
