6. Service providers
i) Google Maps plugin
The responsible party for the processing of data has integrated components of YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, music videos, trailers or videos produced by users themselves can be called up via the Internet portal.
YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed which is operated by the responsible party and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/intl/en-GB/yt/about/ In the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google are informed which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting by calling up a sub-page that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as he/she accesses our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desired by the data subject, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before calling up our website.
7. Social plugins
This website uses social plugins of the social network Facebook.com. The plugins are provided by Facebook Inc. (hereinafter: Facebook), 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account. If you use the plugin ("like" button etc.), information from your browser is transmitted directly to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to determine and store the IP address of the device. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the corresponding rights and setting options for the protection of the privacy of the users can be found in the data protection information of Facebook in its currently valid form.

8. Your rights as a data subject
You have the right:
9. Right of objection
If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 Sentence 1 f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, provided that there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which we will implement without specifying a particular situation.
If you would like to make use of your right of revocation or objection, simply send an email to info(at)seaside-hotels.com.
10. Data security / email communication
10.1. We use the most common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. Usually this is 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a single page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form is indicated by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
10.2 Emails sent via the Internet without additional security measures (encryption) are no more confidential than a postcard. If you communicate with us by email without the additional security of encryption, we will assume that you are aware of this technical circumstance and allow us to answer you by simple email.
Basic encryption between email providers
However, we also attach great importance to confidentiality in communication by email. Our provider therefore automatically offers you secure email communication via your email provider.
Our German hosting provider implements email communication with you using additional security measures. However, the security depends on whether your email provider offers you the same security measures. At https://dane.sys4.de you can test whether your email provider uses the current security standards. If in doubt, we can discuss alternative security measures, e.g. PGP email encryption mentioned below. Regarding the security measures used by our provider, the provider writes:
"DNSSEC has been implemented as security measures for email communication (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System_Security_Extensions). In addition, in 2015 (see how it works: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNS-based_Authentication_of_Named_Entities) DANE was introduced, the next logical step towards greater security. The DANE (DNS-based Authentification of Named Entities) network protocol adds additional security to the SSL/TLS transport protocol frequently used in email traffic. Certificates are directly linked to special DNS entries (TLSA-RR) of a domain and secured via DNSSEC. This ensures that a certificate has not been exchanged in the meantime and that its authenticity can be confirmed. Mail servers that support DANE can now force encrypted connections to each other. This significantly increases security when transmitting emails."
PGP email encryption
A better and therefore recommended encryption (cryptography) of data transmission is possible with asymmetric encryption after the exchange of public keys. We will gladly provide you with our public PGP key (PGP: Pretty Good Privacy).
You can use this key to encrypt messages.
To communicate securely, you must install OpenPGP Software on your computer. Here is a list of possible solutions for different operating systems:
Please import the public key into your local OpenPGP key management to encrypt a message to us.
