Security and data protection

Information on data protection and data security

The protection of your personal data is very important to us and we want to be sure that you feel safe when you visit our Internet pages. Personal data is protected according to the corresponding Federal Data Protection Act. We assure you of the greatest possible data protection in the management of your personal data.

The collection, processing and security of your personal data

You visit our Sunny Cars Internet pages without having to reveal your personal data. You, as user, remain anonymous. Your personal data is collected when you yourself reveal the data e.g. within the scope of a booking for a rental car. For processing your booking we need your name, address, date of birth and details regarding the payment method you prefer. Sunny Cars encodes your customer data by means of the secure SSL (= Secure Socket Layer) technology and thus protects you against data misuse. This prevents the misuse of your data by unauthorised third parties. Should you have questions about the collection, processing and utilisation of your personal data you can contact our data security administrator directly.

Utilisation and transmission of your personal data and the principle of purpose limitation

The personal data which you make available to us is handled according to the regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act. Personal data to the extent that it is required for the processing of your enquiry is made available to third party service providers (e.g. airlines, leasing agencies, etc.). Your data is not passed on to external third parties (e.g. for advertising purposes). In order to check the financial solvency of a prospective booking party the company is entitled to obtain information through the General Credit Protection Agency or another credit reference file system or the booker's house bank, provided a corresponding legitimate economic interest is present and the statutory data protection regulations are taken into consideration.
