Privacy Policy

We respect your privacy. We have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to you, our visitor. This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for this site, www.papua-explorer.com

We will never give any information about you to others.

Scope
With this privacy policy, users receive information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data by the responsible provider collected and used.
The legal framework for data protection is provided by the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Collection of general information
With every access to this offer, information is automatically collected by us or the web space provider. This information, also known as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
Among other things, this information is collected: Name of the website, file, date, data volume, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our website) and the IP address.
Without this data, it would technically not be possible to deliver and display the contents of the website. In this respect, the collection of data is absolutely necessary. In addition, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimise our offer and technology. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the log files in the event of suspicion of illegal use of our services.

Contact form / booking
If you contact us via the online form or by e-mail, we store the information you provide in order to answer your enquiry and ask possible follow-up questions. Your name and contact details are sufficient for us to prepare a travel offer.
We process the following personal data to fulfil a travel contract: Name, address/other contact details (telephone number, e-mail address), date of birth, sex and, depending on the destination, nationality and passport details (if necessary: copy of passport). Copies of passports are required for travel to special destinations in order to obtain a police travel permit in advance.
We delete your data after the purpose ceases to apply (e.g. advice on a trip without booking, usually after 2 months without re-registration) or after expiry of the statutory retention periods (e.g. when booking a trip: invoice and transaction data after 10 years). Copies of passports, if previously required, will be deleted at the end of the trip.

Integration of third-party services and content
Our offer sometimes includes contents, services and performances of other providers. These include, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. The transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary so that these data can be called up and displayed in the user’s browser. The providers (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.
Even though we make every effort to only use third-party providers who only need the IP address in order to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process serves statistical purposes, among others. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users accordingly.

Your rights to information, rectification, blocking, deletion and objection
You have the right, upon request and free of charge, to request information about the personal data stored by us and/or to demand correction, blocking or deletion. Exceptions: It concerns the prescribed data storage for the business completion or the data are subject to the legal storage obligation.
For these purposes, please contact our data protection officer (contact data: at the end of the data protection declaration).
In order to be able to consider a data block at any time, it is necessary to keep the data in a block file for control purposes. If there is no legal archiving obligation, you can also request the deletion of the data. Otherwise, we will block the data if you so wish.

Changes to our privacy policy
We reserve the right to make changes at any time in order to ensure that our data protection declaration always complies with the current legal requirements. This also applies in the event that the data protection declaration has to be adapted due to new or revised services, for example new services. The new data protection declaration will then take effect the next time you visit our website.
