DERTOUR (hereinafter referred to as “Jules Verne Limited”, “we” or “us”), as controller, processes your data in order to contact you. This information therefore applies to personal data provided to Jules Verne Limited in the course of its business or other activities by post, telephone, e-mail or online. Through this data protection information, we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the processing as well as your rights as a data subject.

Persons who provide personal data of others to us must ensure that the data subjects agree to the provision and are informed about how personal data may be processed by us and what rights data subjects have.

Status: August 2022.

Purposes and legal basis of the processing of personal data 

1.1 Establishing contact within the scope of a business relationship

For the initiation or implementation of a business relationship, we will process your contact data (name, address, telephone number and e-mail address), communication data (e.g. correspondence by e-mail) and, if applicable, location data (IP address).

The legal basis for this processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (your consent) and lit. b GDPR (pre-contractual measures, performance of contract) if we receive the data directly from you or enter into a direct contractual relationship with you.

If you are not an existing or potential business partner yourself, we have usually received your contact details from our business partner who has named you as a contact person. In this case, the processing of your data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (balancing of interests, based on our legitimate interest in contacting existing or potential business partners).

The provision of personal data about you for the purpose of contacting you in the context of a business relationship is on a voluntary basis. Insofar as your contact data is absolutely necessary for the initiation and fulfilment of a contract, you must disclose your contact data, otherwise the contract with you cannot be concluded.

1.2 Establishing contact within the framework of our public relations work

We also maintain databases with contact details of political, media and press representatives, among others, in order to be able to contact them on relevant issues, events, etc. as part of our public relations work. 

The processing of your personal data is based on your consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR), which you can give to us in personal contact (e.g. by handing over your business card or via online form). For your right to withdraw consent, please see point 5.8.

We also collect contact details from public sources and enter them in our databases. The legal basis for the data processing described is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. (Weighing of interests, based on our legitimate interest in contacting political, media and press representatives, among others, as part of our public relations work).

Recipients of personal data

As a general rule, your data collected by us will not be disclosed to unauthorised persons. 

However, in some cases we use service providers to process personal data, including for sending emails, chats and video telephony. Your data (contact data, communication data, location data (IP address) is stored in a secure data center and databases. 

All service providers have been carefully selected and are subject to data protection agreements with us. The service providers are only given access to your data to the extent and for the period required to provide the services or to the extent that you have consented to the data processing and use. 

We also use service providers located in third countries outside the European Union to process your data. Countries outside the European Union handle the protection of personal data differently than countries within the European Union. There is currently no decision by the EU Commission that these third countries generally offer an adequate level of protection. We have therefore taken special measures to ensure that your data is processed in the third countries as securely as within the European Union. With service providers in third countries, we conclude the data protection contract (standard contractual clauses) provided by the Commission of the European Union for the processing of personal data in third countries or implement other permissible guarantees or legally permissible exceptions from Art. 49 GDPR. This provides appropriate safeguards for the protection of your data with service providers in the third country. You can request a copy of these guarantees using the contact details above.

Storage period; deletion periods

We store the data processed by you for as long as it is required to achieve the purpose and a legal basis exists. When this ceases to apply, your data will generally be deleted within 3 months. In addition, your data will be stored/not deleted for as long as contractual or statutory retention periods exist for them. These amount to a maximum of 7 years in accordance with UK Law.

Automated decision-making; profiling

We do not use your personal data for automated decision-making or profiling.
