As the provider of the website www.cosmos-yachting.de , Cosmos Yachting GmbH (hereinafter: Cosmos Yachting) takes the obligation to data protection very seriously and designs your website in such a way that only as little personal data as necessary is collected, processed and used. Under no circumstances will personal data be rented or sold to third parties for advertising purposes. Without the express consent of the visitor or an existing contractual relationship, no personal data will be used for advertising or marketing purposes.

At Cosmos Yachting, only those persons have access to personal data who need this data to carry out their tasks within the responsible body, who are informed about the statutory provisions on data protection and who comply with the applicable statutory provisions (Art.

The collection, processing, use and transmission of the collected personal data takes place, in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 EU-GDPR, only to the extent necessary for the implementation of a contractual relationship between Cosmos Yachting, as the responsible body, and the visitor, as the person concerned, is required.

If there is the option of entering personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) on the website, the input of these data takes place voluntarily. The use and payment of all offered services is permitted – if and so far technically possible and reasonable – without specification of such data or under specification of anonymized data or an alias.
