The Data Processing Purposes
We collect your personal data for the following purposes:
Various functions on the website make it necessary to store data, i.e. creating a profile and adding an experience (photos).

Creating a profile to share experiences. We use the information you provide to create a profile and make it available for you. With your profile you can add all your photos and stories (experiences) and share them with others.
Adding photos and stories (experiences). We use this information to publish on the website, to inspire other users and can be shared by Social Media channels.

Creating a profile to save and share routes. We use your data to create a profile and make it available for you. In your profile you can save your own routes and share them with others.

To carry out analyzes on the use of the Website. We do this to gain more insight into the visit, preferences and operation of the website. We use Google Analytics to analyze the use of the Website. To this end, we collect data, including your IP address. The data are collected by means of cookies, for which we require your permission. If you do not want this, you can switch off the cookies via your browser settings or your mobile settings. For analysis purposes, we use, for example, the pages you view and fields that you enter in the search function, for example.

Rights of the Data Subject
This is a privacy statement about the use of your data. You can influence the way in which we collect your data. You have a right of access, a right to correct and remove, and you can limit our use of your data. In some cases you may object to the use of your data. Lastly, you are entitled to transfer data.

This means that you can ask us (see our contact details above) to specify which of your personal data we process. We will answer you in line with the applicable legal rules. You have the right of correction or removal of your data. This can largely be managed through your profile and browser or mobile device settings. If we requested your permission to use your data, you can always withdraw this permission. This does not affect the use of your data prior to the moment at which you withdraw your permission. You also have the right to oppose the use of your data for direct marketing purposes. Furthermore, you may ask us to provide you or another party with information in a machine-readable and interoperable format, for example, because you want to transfer your profile. We will treat such a request seriously. Please let us know if you want to exercise certain rights (see our contact details above). Should you have the idea that we do not handle your data legitimately, please contact us. If that does not produce the desired result, you can always file a complaint with the Personal Data Authority.

Disclosure to Third Parties and Transfer
Yes, we share your data. We offer you the use of the Website, but we did not develop all this ourselves. We also do not manage and support these services ourselves. We are assisted by third parties, which therefore automatically process your data, but only for that purpose. The parties that help us all work according to our instructions. We have concluded a processor agreement with these parties.
We may engage third parties for marketing activities or for the delivery of your purchase. To this end, these parties will require your data (e.g. an e-mail processing company). We will only provide your personal information to supervisors and authorities if we are legally required to do so.

Personal data may also be passed on to parties in countries outside the European Economic Area. If we do this directly ourselves, we will take the necessary steps to ensure that your data is protected as well as possible.

We attach great importance to the security of your personal information. We have therefore taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against loss and  any form of unlawful processing. That means that there is always a secure (SSL) connection while you are using the entire platform and all functionalities, that we have a privacy policy in place stating who has access to your data and when, and that we make backups of files, install updates in a timely manner, and use anti-virus programs.

Terms of Storage
We retain your data for as long as you have an account with us. We save your data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collect the data. If you want to delete your profile and other data, please send us a removal request. Our contact details can be found elsewhere on this page.

Changes to this Privacy Statement
This privacy statement is subject to change. If possible, we will try to inform you personally of any fundamental change to this privacy statement significantly affecting your rights or the permission you gave us. Please check the reference number and date of this privacy statement to see whether this is the version you read earlier.
