We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG. The use of the Internet pages of the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services provided by our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance Maker when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
a) personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person's job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or controller
Controller or controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.
j) Third party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent shall mean any freely given indication of the data subject's wishes for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner, in the form of a statement or any other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

5. collection of general data and information
The website of Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG is hosted by ISP IONOS and collects a series of general data and information each time a data subject or automated system accesses one of our Internet pages. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server.
Which technologies does IONOS use to determine the data?
What data about our website visitors does IONOS store?
IONOS does not store any personal data of website visitors, so that no conclusions can be drawn about individual visitors. The following data is collected, which is anonymized directly during collection:
- Referrer (previously visited website)
- Requested web page or file
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Device type used
- Time of access
- IP address in anonymized form (used only to determine the location of access).
In addition, processing by WebAnalytics takes place.
For what purpose is the data collected?
The data is collected for legitimate interest to ensure the security and stability of the offer and to provide the website visitors with the highest level of quality.
In WebAnalytics, data is collected exclusively for statistical evaluation and technical optimization of the web offer.
How long is the visitor data stored?
The data is stored for 8 weeks.
Is visitor data passed on to third parties?
No, your data will not be shared with third parties.
When using these general data and information, the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG does not draw any conclusions about the data subject.
Rather, this information is needed to
- to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
- to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it,
- to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and
- to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand for statistical purposes and on the other hand for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and ultimately ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process.
- The anonymous data of the server log files are deleted separately from any personal data provided by a data subject stored after 8 weeks.
6. contact possibility via the website
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
7. newsletter and push notifications
We send newsletters or other electronic notifications (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of the newsletter are specifically described in the context of a registration, they are decisive for the consent of the users. Otherwise, our newsletters contain information about our services and us.
To subscribe to our newsletters, it is generally sufficient to enter your e-mail address. Further personalization does not take place.
Double opt-in procedure: Registration for our newsletter is always carried out in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other e-mail addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Likewise, the changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider are logged.
Deletion and restriction of processing: We may store unsubscribed email addresses for up to three years based on our legitimate interests before deleting them in order to be able to prove consent formerly given. The processing of this data will be limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual deletion request is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of consent is confirmed at the same time. In the event of obligations to permanently observe objections, we reserve the right to store the e-mail address in a blocking list (so-called "Robinson list") for this purpose alone.
The logging of the registration process takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of proving its proper course. If we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure sending system.
Notes on legal basis: The newsletter is sent on the basis of the recipients' consent or, if consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing, if and to the extent that this is permitted by law, e.g. in the case of existing customer advertising. Insofar as we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests. The registration process is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests to prove that it was carried out in accordance with the law.
Contents: Among other things, you will receive information on flight operations, restrictions and PPR regulations, fuel prices, construction work, services and offers, events, announcements of the Aero-Club Hof e.V., the flight school Your-Sky as well as the protective measures in the context of the Corona pandemic (COVID-19).
Analysis and performance measurement (opening and click rates): The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e., a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened, or, if we use a shipping service provider, from their server. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval, are initially collected.
This information is used to technically improve our newsletter based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. This analysis also includes determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can indeed be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor, if used, that of the dispatch service provider to observe individual users. Rather, we use the analyses to identify the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
The evaluation of the newsletter and the measurement of its success are carried out, subject to the express consent of the users, on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests and meets the expectations of the users.
A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled, or it must be contradicted.
- Types of data processed: inventory data (email address), contact data (e.g. email), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times).
- Affected persons: Communication partners.
- Purposes of the processing: direct marketing (e.g. by e-mail).
- Legal basis: Consent(Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a. DSGVO), Legitimate Interests(Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO).
- Option to object (opt-out): You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent or object to further receipt. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter either at the end of each newsletter or you can otherwise use one of the above contact options, preferably e-mail, for this purpose.
Services Used and Service Providers: Email Marketing - Mailjet:
Yes, data will be passed on to the external partner Mailjet:
10789 Berlin, Germany
No, no data is processed outside the EU or EEA.
7.2 Push notifications
You can sign up to receive so-called push notifications. For this purpose, we use the "CleverPush" offer, which is operated by CleverPush GmbH, Nagelsweg 22, 20097 Hamburg ("CleverPush").
You will receive regular information via our push notifications about newly published or updated articles on our homepage.
To sign up for push notifications, you must confirm your browser or device's request to receive notifications. This process is documented and stored by CleverPush. For this purpose, the login time as well as a push token or device ID is stored. This data is used on the one hand to be able to send you the push notifications and on the other hand as proof of your registration. The legal basis for this processing is your consent and thus Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
CleverPush also evaluates our push notifications statistically. CleverPush can thus see if and when our push notifications were displayed and clicked on. This enables us to determine which push notifications interest the recipients in order to tailor future messages to the presumed interests of all recipients and thus increase interest in our offer. Additionally, in addition to the push token or device ID, we store the subject focus of the app on which the push notifications were activated (e.g., business, sports, etc.). We also use this information to send push notifications to the corresponding subscribers that are in their presumed interests. The legal basis for the processing in each case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The assignment of a push token or device ID to a specific person only takes place if we should be legally obligated to do so, for the defense of claims against us if this is required as evidence, as well as for the possible prosecution of violations of the law.
You can revoke your consent to the storage and use of your personal data to receive our push notifications at any time with effect for the future. Furthermore, you can object to the use of personal data described above on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f at any time. Please revoke your consent for this purpose. You can revoke your consent in the settings provided for this purpose for receiving push notifications in the settings of your device or browser.
Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Accordingly, your data will be stored as long as the subscription to our push notifications is active.
The following link explains the discharge process in detail: https://cleverpush.com/faq.
For the acceleration of the retrieval of content (e.g. images) as well as for the defense against attacks, CleverPush uses the offers of cloudflare.com, an offer of Cloudflare, Inc. within the scope of a commissioned processing on the basis of the standard contractual clauses.
CleverPush does not store any data on Cloudflare's servers that contain personal data, but only general content such as texts or images. When you retrieve this content, the end device you are using establishes a connection to Cloudflare and this results in the processing of the IP address of the end device you are using.
8. routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:
- The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.

The employee of Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG will arrange for the deletion to be carried out immediately.

The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs them for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
The data subject has objected to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation, and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, to the extent that this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
If the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG to the processing for direct marketing purposes, Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right to object in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is based on the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) it is made with the data subject's explicit consent, the Flughafen Hof-Plauen GmbH & Co KG shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the data subject's involvement on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
10. data protection during applications and the application process
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends relevant application documents to the controller electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website.
When applicants transmit personal data from outside the company to the controller by e-mail, this data is usually transmitted unencrypted and thus readable by anyone. This is not within the sphere of influence of the controller.
A transmission of personal data via our online form is encrypted.
If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions.
If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted automatically no later than 6 months after the notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller prevent deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
11. social media plugin "Shariff "
We offer you the possibility to use so-called "social media buttons" on our website. To protect your data, we rely on the "Shariff" solution for implementation.
Through this, these buttons are only integrated on our site as a static graphic, which contains a link to the corresponding website of the provider. By clicking on the graphic, you are thus redirected to the website of the respective provider, just as it works with normal links. Only when you call up the provider's website does the provider receive information about you, such as your IP address. Unless you click on the button graphics, no data exchange takes place.
We offer buttons for the following services / companies on our website: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Xing, WhatsApp, Email, RSS.
The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programs, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting when a subpage containing a YouTube video is called up. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her YouTube account before accessing our website.
12.1.2 Google Maps
12.1.3 Google Fonts
To ensure that this integration is data protection compliant, we use the plugin "DSGVO-All in one PRO for WP", which works as follows:
Explanation: This process is activated and works fully automatically. All used Google Fonts are stored locally and the existing embeddings are replaced via Google, so that no more embeddings are made by Google.
If a font is added/removed, for example because a plugin or theme is uninstalled or installed, the plugin registers this change automatically and renews/deletes the fonts.
Detailed information about the embedding process:
The plugin scans the HTML output of the website and looks for any Google Fonts embedding. It will process all embeddings via @import - link tag - Typekit Webfontloader that originate from Google.
Now the used/found Google Fonts are automatically stored locally on our webspace at IONOS. Any calls to Google servers are automatically removed and the locally stored fonts are included/used.
Important to know: The process is coupled to the frontend. This has the advantage that the process always checks in the background, when the page is called, whether fonts have been added or removed. If no fonts were added/removed, the process does nothing and loads the existing local fonts. If a font was added/removed, the process starts as described above under Explanation.
In addition to this website, we also maintain presences in social media, which you can reach via corresponding buttons(via SHARIFF buttons, see there) on our website that are not harmful to data protection.

14. legal basis of the processing
Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
15. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
15. duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
17. legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
