It is our responsibility to protect your privacy. We use the information gathered about you in accordance with the applicable data protection laws.

What is personal information?

We use the term “personal information” to mean information relating to your identity such as, for example, your name, email address or postal address.

Passing on to third parties

All information that you provide us with will, of course, be treated confidentially. As a matter of principle, we do not make your information available outside of Hamburg Aviation / Luftfahrtcluster Metropolregion Hamburg e.V., except where you have authorised us to do so or we are obliged to do so, for example on the basis of a court order.

What do we do with your information?

We gather, store and process information in order to understand you better and to be able to offer you better services. To this end, we undertake internal analysis of data relating to demographics, user interests and user behaviour. Where you have authorised us to do so, we also gather, store and process personal information for the purposes of individual information-tailoring and user relationship management. This includes personalised services, in particular delivery of content targeted at the individual user along with possible interactive communication (emails, selected display of content). This enables us to make tailored content and services available to users of the website, thereby increasing the personal value of our online services for you.

Security of your data

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws. Nevertheless, no electronic communication is completely secure. We hereby notify you that, despite our strict security specifications, information which you voluntarily provide about yourself via the internet may be used by others.

As a rule, these partners have their own data protection declarations and/or guidelines. We cannot accept any liability whatsoever for such declarations and guidelines, which are not issued in conjunction or collaboration with Hamburg Aviation.
