Privacy


Data privacy and security.

We take the protection of your personal details and your privacy very seriously. We would like to describe here how we protect your data. To protect your privacy as widely as possible, we do of course adhere to all the legal regulations regarding data privacy.
Data-processing entity and data privacy officer.

The responsible entity and service provider is Sixt GmbH & Co. Autovermietung KG, Zugspitzstraße 1, 82049 Pullach, Germany (referred to hereafter as SIXT). If you have any questions about data privacy you can contact SIXT’s data privacy officer at any time. The best way is by e-mail: datenschutz@sixt.de.


What are personal details?

Personal details are information that can be assigned to you personally. These include things like your name, address, postal address, telephone number, and e-mail address.

How SIXT collects, processes, and utilizes personal details.

Personal details are collected and stored by this website if you provide them to us as part of registering. These details are used for the purpose of advertising ourselves (including providing recommendations).
We will use your e-mail address to offer you our own goods and services. We will also keep you informed about our company’s latest offers and promotions. You can revoke this use of your e-mail address at any time, and
it will cost no more than the transmission cost at basic rates. The simplest way to do this is by clicking on the link at the end of our e-mail, or entering your e-mail address via the‘Unsubscribe newsletter’ link on the following page:
www.sixt.de/newsletter-abbestellen. You can revoke it at any time by writing to: widerspruch_datenschutz@sixt.de.

Furthermore we would like to point out that you can at any time ask for your details not to be used for the purpose of advertising, market research, and opinion research. This revocation should be sent to: Sixt GmbH & Co. Autovermietung KG, Kennwort: Widerspruch, Zugspitzstraße 1, 82049 Pullach, Germany, or by e-mail to: widerspruch_datenschutz@sixt.de.

If we intend to use your personal details for any purpose other than that and which legally requires your consent, we will ask for your consent expressly. Once you have given your consent, you can revoke it at any time.

Security, SSL technology

SIXT has taken technical and organizational steps to protect your personal details, in particular against coincidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons. These security measures will continue to be adapted as technology progresses. Data is transferred between your computer and our server in encrypted form (SSL process, Secure Socket Layer).

Cookies.

When you visit our website it may be that we initiate the storing of information in your computer in the form of ‘cookies’. Cookies are small text files which are copied onto your hard drive from a web server. Cookies contain information which can later be read by a web server in the domain in which the cookie was given to you. Cookies cannot execute any programs or place viruses on your computer. The cookies used by us do not contain any personal information, nor are they combined with such information.

Most of the cookies used by us are those known as ‘session cookies’, which are needed to keep your visit consistent - in other words, to ensure that you do not need to log in again, and that your other details will remain in place during the session, and so on. We also need session cookies to ensure that a particular offer which you have clicked on can be allocated to your enquiry (e.g. for promotion offers). These session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of the session. We also use cookies so that, when you visit the website again later, we can tell whether you are particularly interested in particular offers, which enables us to show you offers like that on our website straight away. This association is done only using abstract criteria (e.g. ‘BMW’) and is not connected to your person. These cookies last for one year and are then deleted automatically. Finally, in order to settle accounts with our advertising partners, we require cookies which record the page or campaign from which customers were sent to us. These details are also collected in abstract form only, so they are not allocated to you personally. A cookie of this kind lasts for 31 days.

You can accept or reject cookies. Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. However, generally speaking you can decide in your browser settings whether cookies are accepted or not. If you reject cookies, then it may be that some of the features of our website can no longer be used. If you accept cookies, then you can delete the cookies you accept at a later point. In Internet Explorer 7 for instance, you can delete cookies by selecting ‘Tools’> ‘Delete browsing history’ and clicking on the ‘Delete cookies’ button. If you delete the cookies then all the settings that are controlled by those cookies, including advertising settings, will be deleted, and it may no longer be possible to restore them later.

Information, correction, and deletion of data.


For information, correction, and deletion requests, please contact our data privacy officer, stating your name and contact address, by e-mailing datenschutz@sixt.de or by post to Sixt GmbH & Co. Autovermietung KG, Zugspitzstraße 1, 82049 Pullach, Germany.

We would like to point out that your right to have your details deleted may be limited by our statutory obligations to store them. Furthermore, courts, criminal prosecution authorities and other legally appointed authorities may request data or information on a legal basis.
