The protection of privacy and personal data is of great importance to the travel agency travel ways. We also pay great attention to this aspect in the implementation of our Internet activities. Our data protection practice is in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other data protection regulations on the Internet.
In order to best protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we, travel ways, use technical and organizational security measures. In line with technical developments, we will continuously optimize these security measures.

- Personal Data
Personal data is information that can be used to find out your identity. This includes information such as first and last name, address, postal address, telephone number. Information that is not directly associated with your real identity (such as favorite websites or the number of users of a site) is not included (see anonymous data).
- Anonymized Data
Every time the content of our website is accessed, general information is automatically saved (e.g. number and duration of users of individual pages, etc.). This data is not personal and is therefore also processed in an anonymous form. Information of this type is for statistical purposes only and is used by us to optimize our website.
- What data do we collect from you?
We, travel ways, collect personal data from you to process the offers and services you have selected.

We, travel ways, only forward personal data within the legally permissible framework in cases where this is necessary for the processing of your booking, the service you have requested or the associated payment process.
