General technical organizational measures
The Lemondy website is behind a software firewall to prevent access from other networks connected to the Internet. In addition, only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. These employees are trained in security and privacy practices and treat your information confidentially.
Secure transfer of your data
In order to best protect the data, we store against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures. The security levels are continuously reviewed in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.
The exchange of data to and from our website is always encrypted. We offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol for our website, in each case using the current encryption protocols.
In addition, we offer our users content encryption as part of the contact forms and for booking requests. The decryption of this data is only possible for us. In addition, there is the option of using alternative communication channels (e.g., the postal service).
Transmission and disclosure of personal information
In the course of our processing of personal information, it may happen that your data is transmitted to other bodies, companies, legally independent organizational units or persons or that it is disclosed to them. Recipients of this data may include, for example, payment institutions in the context of payment transactions, service providers commissioned with IT tasks, Customer Relationship Management software (CRM), or other providers of services and other content that are integrated into a web site. In such cases, we observe the legal requirements and, in particular, conclude appropriate contracts or agreements that serve to protect your data with the recipients of your data.
Lemondy will not sell, rent, or otherwise transfer your personal information to third parties. We will transfer your data to third parties if you have consented to this in the following cases:
Contractors: Lemondy may engage other companies and individuals in certain cases to fulfil its obligations to its customers on its behalf. This may involve sharing your data with these third parties in order to provide products or services to you. Examples include customer service, payment data processing and marketing support. In these cases, data is transferred to such service providers and contractors (such as payment service providers, advertising providers, technical service providers) for the purpose of fulfilling the contract.
It goes without saying that Lemondy ensures that the respective service provider guarantees data security before passing on personal information. Lemondy will therefore only commission companies that can guarantee secure and proper data processing based on their qualifications and their technical and organizational capabilities.
If we process data in a third country (i.e., outside the USA) or the processing takes place in the context of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this will only be done in accordance with the legal requirements.
Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transfer, we only process or have data processed in third countries with a recognized level of data protection, contractual obligation through so-called standard contractual clauses, in the presence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations.
Storage period and deletion
We store your personal information for as long as is necessary to fulfil the intended purpose (e.g., contract fulfilment, answering your enquiries) or for as long as legal retention periods make storage necessary. As long as legal storage obligations, such as tax and commercial law regulations, or other justified reasons prevent the deletion of your personal information, we will restrict the processing of your data; your data will then be deleted in accordance with the legal regulations.
Data processing due to legal requirements / protection against misuse / rights of third parties
Lemondy is entitled to process your personal information insofar as this is necessary to fulfil legal obligations. For this purpose, Lemondy may transfer this data in particular to authorities, law enforcement agencies and courts.

Lemondy is further entitled to process personal information if and to the extent necessary to detect or prevent misuse of this website or to enforce claims of Lemondy, its employees or users, whereby the data processing in these cases is necessary to protect these aforementioned legitimate interests of Lemondy.

We use the data you provide to fulfil and process our contract and to respond to your enquiries or on the basis of your consent. Insofar as you have also given us separate consent to process your data for consulting, quotation, and advertising purposes, Lemondy is entitled to contact you for these purposes via the communication channels you have ticked in this consent.

Through this integration, the social network in question receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile or are not currently logged in to the social network in question. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective social network and stored there.

As already mentioned, we take care to make our social media pages as data protection compliant as possible if the provider of the social media platform gives us the opportunity to do so. We can only exert limited influence on statistics provided to us by the social media platform provider and cannot switch them off. However, we ensure that no additional optional statistics are made available to us.
