3. Purposes and legal bases for data processing
3.1 Use of the website for information purposes
You can visit our website without providing any information about yourself. If you use our website merely for information purposes, and therefore do not make a booking, send an enquiry or otherwise send us information concerning you, we do not process any personal data – only data sent by your browser allowing you to visit the website and information sent to us by cookies used.
3.1.1 Technical provision of the website
For the purposes of technical provision of the website, our system (i.e. the web server) automatically collects information from your browser each time you access the website.
Temporary storage of your IP address by our system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to your computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must necessarily remain stored for the
duration of the session.
The IP address is stored in the log files to ensure our website’s functionality. Additionally, we also use this data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems (e.g. attack detection). An
analysis of the data for marketing purposes in conjunction with the tools mentioned under 3.1.3 also takes place.
The following information is collected:
IP address, anonymised/abbreviated;
browser type/version (for example, Firefox 59.0.2 (64 bit));
browser language (for example, English);
operating system used (for example, Windows 10);
internal resolution of browser window;
Java script activation;
time of access.
The consent manager sets a cookie for you for the allocation of your decision. This cookie contains some personal data. The data is exclusively processed in the European Union. This data involves the
End user’s IP number in anonymised form (the last three digits are set to “0”)
Date and time of consent.
End user’s browser user agent.
The URL from which the consent was sent.
An anonymised, random, encrypted key.
The end user’s consent status, which serves as evidence of consent.
We process your personal data for the technical provision of our website on the following legal basis:
to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 1, point (c) of the GDPR in conjunction with further provisions of the GDPR, insofar as we are obliged to be able to document and provide evidence of your decision regarding consent to data processing for cookies and other, similar tools,
to protect our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 1, point (f), of the GDPR in order to be able to make the functions of the website technically available to you.
3.1.3 Google Tag Manager
On our website, we use the Google Tag Manager, from Google Inc., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, Ireland (“Google”). The Google Tag Manager is a solution that marketers can use to manage
website tags via an interface. The Google Tag Manager service itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-free domain and does not collect any personal data. The Google Tag Manager service causes
other tags to be triggered, which may then collect data in certain situations. Google Tag Manager does not access such data. If a deactivation has been put into effect at domain or cookie level, it will remain valid for all tracking tags implemented by Google Tag Manager.
3.1.4 Google Analytics
On our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, Ireland (“Google”). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, text files that are stored on
your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by cookies about your use of our website is usually transmitted to and saved on a server operated by Google within Europe. However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, Google will shorten your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. Google uses this information on our behalf to analyse your use of the website, compile website activity reports and provide further services associated with use of the website in particular and use of the Internet in general to the website operator. The IP address transmitted from your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other

3.1.5 Google Maps
Our website integrates Google Maps, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (parent company: Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain
View, CA 94043, USA) (“Google”). Google Maps is a web service depicting interactive (geographical) maps in order to visually present geographical information. We use this service to display our restaurant’s location and make it easier to find us. Data is processed in order to be able to display the map and the marked location to you.
To increase the protection of your data when you visit our website, Google Maps is restricted and only integrated into the site using an HTML link. This ensures that a connection to the Google servers is not
established when you access our website and your data is not sent to Google. Your browser will establish a direct connection to the Google servers so you can plan your route, only when you click the link,
thereby giving your consent to data transfer. In functional terms, the integration of Google Maps equates to a hyperlink and consequently your data is not collected on our website by us or by Google.
3.2 Active use of the website
In addition to using our website for purely informational purposes, you can also actively use our website to download information, register for a newsletter or event, or contact us. In this case, in addition to the processing of your personal data as indicated above when you use the website purely for informational purposes, we also use other personal data, that we require, for instance, to process your order.

supply in this context. This includes your contact details, to allow us to send you a reply or ask any necessary follow-up questions, and other information you send us in this context. Depending on your
details and the subject of the enquiry and security, contact may be made electronically, over the phone or by post.

to protect our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 1, point (f) of the GDPR; our legitimate interest lies in providing an appropriate response to or execution of customer enquiries;
if the enquiry serves to enter into a contract, then Article 6, paragraph 1, point (b) of the GDPR provides a further legal basis.
In order to allow you to make bookings yourself on our website and in order to accept and organise them, we use the “Bookatable” service provided by Bookatable GmbH & Co. KG, Deichstraße 48-50,
20459 Hamburg, Germany, email: firstname.lastname@example.org (“Bookatable”). In doing so, we process the personal data you supply in this context. This includes your gender, name, email address and telephone

If your CV includes special categories of personal data, we do not collect these intentionally. Please do not send us such data.
If, as part of your application documents, you send us special categories of personal data in accordance with Article 9, paragraph 1 of the GDPR, voluntarily and contrary to our explicit request (your photo or details of your religious denomination, for example), we will store this data on the basis of your consent in accordance with Article 88, paragraph 1 of the GDPR in conjunction with Article 26, paragraph 3, point (2) of the new GDPR. This will also apply if you provide us with further special personal data in the course of the application process. By sending this information voluntarily, you agree to the storage of
this special personal data in the context of the application process.
In principle, we do not take such special personal data into account when making recruitment decisions unless it is necessary on account of a legal obligation to take such special personal data into account.

In such cases, information is always voluntary and provided with your explicit consent which you give by sending this information voluntarily.
