Data protection and privacy policy

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore we process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (GDPR, TKG 2003). In this privacy policy we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within this site.

Your location based data

Your location information will be collected if you use the "Search for my location" feature and consent to the site's access to this information in your browser. The location data determined by the browser in the form of longitude and latitude are randomly falsified directly on your end device within a radius of approx. 300 meters. Your exact location is neither transmitted to the server nor stored there. Only the corrupt location data is processed in the following ways:
  1. as part of a URL being called
  2. in the form of a cookie, which is stored on your device, so that you will be shown this place again when you revisit the site later
  3. as part of the URL tracked by Google Analytics.

Submitted data

Users have the opportunity to submit data on gas stations. This is possible without giving personal information. In case data on a gas station give the impression that they are personal are immediately deleted.

When submitting price information, the e-mail address will be used once to send a confirmation e-mail. The address itself is not stored, but is saved as a hash value using a secure procedure. This allows a later price report without e-mail confirmation.

If a user contacts by email, telephone or any other means, personal data will be transmitted. In such cases, personal information will be deleted within 30 days after the request has been processed or, if no action has been taken, after no more than 45 days.

Cookies and stored data

This site stores cookies on your device. The application itself stores location data from an earlier visit in the form of coordinates, as well as the selected fuel. This will immediately show you the new prices for this location and fuel when you visit again.

Cookies are also created on your device to analyze traffic to the page and to deliver advertising. Details can be found below in the section of the individual provider.

Likewise, cookies are stored if you choose opt-out solutions for Google Analytics, Google Adsense or Ströer SSP.

Through appropriate settings on your browser, you can prevent the mentioned cookies from being stored on your device. As a result, you can no longer use the page to the same extent (reminder of last requested location and selected fuel would be missing).

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States . Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. You can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

We added a parameter to the Google Analytics' tracking code to track only an anonymized version of your IP address (so called Masking). Therefore it is not possible to locate an exact position of yours.

The relation to Google Analytics is based on the "USA Privacy Shield".

Data processing is based on § 96 Abs 3 TKG and Art 6 Abs 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interests) GDPR. We consider the improvement of our online activities as well as products and services as our legitimate interest.

In addition, Google AdSense uses additional web beacons, invisible graphics that allow Google to analyze clicks on this site, traffic on it and similar information.

The information obtained via cookies and web beacons, your IP address and the delivery of advertising formats are transmitted to and stored by Google on a server located in the USA. Google may share this information with third parties, if required by law or if Google commissions data processing to third parties.

If you have not given your consent, you will be shown non-personalized advertising by Google Adsense and its affiliates (other ad networks and ad technologies). Non-personalized ads are ads that are not based on a user's previous behavior. They are matched with contextual information, including the geographic location (such as city-level) based on the current location, the content of the page, or current query terms. These ads do not use cookies for personalizing ads. However, cookies are used to enable frequency capping (a way to regulate the frequency of ads for a user), enable aggregated ad reporting, and combat fraud and abuse.
