Thank you for visiting Solar Spider!
1 General Provisions
The Solar Spider Platform ("Solar Spider", "we", "us", "our") is a generally accessible internet-based platform that is operated in various languages on www.Solar Spider.com. The operator is Peter Arnold based in Vienna:
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (Art. 4 Nr 1 GDPR). This includes information such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number or IP address. Information that is not directly associated with your identity, such as the number of users of a website is not considered as personal data.
In the following, we inform you about the various purposes for which we process personal data, the legal basis for such processing in each case and how long we store the data in the process.
By using our websites or our app or by creating a user account, you acknowledge these provisions.
The data protection declaration of Solar Spider is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“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.
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
·Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
·Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing 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 nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2 What data is collected and why?
When you use the Solar Spider platform, we collect personal data from you. We need this data to adequately perform the contract between you and us and to comply with our legal obligations. Without this data we may not be able to provide you with all the services you require.
In the following we inform you about the different purposes for which we process personal data, on which legal basis such processing is carried out in each case and how long we store the data in the process.
Insofar as we obtain your (the data subject's) consent for processing operations of personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) c GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of Solar Spider or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
Your personal data will be stored for the period of time for which the respective purpose lasts.
2.1 Automatically collected data
When you visit our platform, our web server stores information such as your IP address, the URLs of the websites from which you have accessed our platform (so-called referrers), the browser type and version used, the operating system used, the access device with which the services are used, the date and time of access, the pages of our websites accessed, the time you spend on our websites and other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
We use this information to
transmit content from our platform to your browser,
to continuously improve the Solar Spider platform technically and to further adapt it to the needs of our users,
to detect, correct and prevent errors, malfunctions and possible misuse,
in the event of attacks on our platform, to be able to trace the attack and in order to
compile aggregate statistics on access channels, use of the websites and the transition to websites of our partners.
We do not use this information to identify users. If you only visit our platform without having created a profile with us, we do not know who you are.
We store this information for a period of 30 days and then anonymise or delete this information again.
The legal basis for the processing and subsequent storage of this information is a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. The legitimate interest with regard to the transmission of the above-mentioned information lies in the fact that this is necessary to display the contents of the platform; without transmission of the IP address, it is not possible to display the website. The legitimate interest in the limited storage is our security interests and the ongoing improvement of the Solar Spider platform.
2.2 Data provided by you
In addition, we also store and use information that you provide to us about yourself or your user account ("Account").
2.2.1 General Data
You can send us information on various pages (e.g. home page, contact page, feedback page, etc.).

If you provide your e-mail address, we can contact you if we have any questions about your enquiry. We can sincerely thank you for your support in the form of an e-mail and/or thank you card in any case. Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted with the e-mail and our reply will be stored.
We also offer surveys at irregular intervals, with the help of which we collect your personal opinion in order to continuously improve the services of our platform. Your information will only be evaluated and processed for the purpose of the survey. In the event that third parties are commissioned to evaluate the data, we will indicate this fact separately in the corresponding questionnaire. Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us yourself.
The personal data voluntarily transmitted to us in this context is used to process your enquiry and to contact you. The legal basis for the transmission of the data is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

After this period, we will initiate the deletion of all your personal data from us and our processors. Your personal data will be irrevocably deleted no later than 30 days after your request for deletion. We will keep a confirmation of the erasure for 1 year from the date of erasure.
The legal basis for the processing and subsequent storage of this information is consent to the processing of personal data (pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR), the fulfilment of a legal obligation (Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR) and a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
The legal obligation is to obtain confirmation of the legal age limit pursuant to Art. 8 (1) f GDPR in order to enable valid contractual terms.
The legitimate interest in the limited storage is our security interests, the ongoing improvement of the Solar Spider platform, as well as the legitimate interest to conduct marketing activities.
All remaining information that you can store in the user profile is optional and can be added voluntarily. This information allows for improved travel planning, documentation, and accounting. The additional information allows us to tailor travel arrangements and accommodation to your personal needs. It also allows us to better tailor our service to your company's processes.

Your purchase or order data in connection with services of the Solar Spider platform will be deleted after a period of 7 years due to legal retention obligations. This period begins at the end of the calendar year in which the purchase was made.

The legal obligation is the retention period of purchase and order data.
The legitimate interest in the limited storage is our security interests, the ongoing improvement of the Solar Spider platform, as well as the legitimate interest to conduct marketing activities.
2.3 Data from third parties
2.3.1 Registration via social networks
If you access your Solar Spider user account via third party services (e.g. Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, WeChat), establish a connection to your Solar Spider user account or log in to your Solar Spider user account via them, these services may transmit information to us, such as your registration and profile data of the relevant service. The nature and extent of this information varies and is controlled by the relevant third-party service or depends on your privacy settings with the relevant service.
We use and store this information for the same purposes and based on the same legal bases as set out in Section 2.2 - Mandatory Data.
2.4 Cookies and similar technologies
A cookie is a small file that is placed and stored on a computer system via an internet browser. We use such cookies both as a technical means of providing services on our platform, e.g. enabling certain functionalities, and to analyse the website behaviour of our visitors and, based on this, to design our offers in a more user-friendly way.
Web beacons are small graphic files ("pixels") which may be embedded in our platform and which may be used to record user behaviour. Similar procedures are, for example, Flash cookies, HTML5 cookies or other local (browser or device) storage procedures in which - comparable to cookies - data can be stored in your browser or terminal device.
To store your user settings, such as language and currency, during your visit to our platform and between visits.
To store your login status as a registered user (optional), so that you do not have to log in again when you return to the same website later.
To technically associate your visit with specific servers to ensure a safe transition between individual pages and searches.
To monitor the performance of our systems (no user-related evaluation).
For web analysis with Google Analytics and similar web analysis services (see section 3.3 ) and the creation of usage statistics (no user-related evaluation).
For non-paying customers for so-called retargeting, i.e. the subsequent display of ads matching your search queries on Solar Spider, outside our platform and mobile apps.
Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). We may also allow our business partners to use tracking technologies on the Solar Spider platform or engage others to track your behaviour for us. Details of this can be found in section 3.3 - Analysis of our platform / tracking.
If you do not wish this to happen, you can set your browser to notify you when cookies are set and only allow this on a case-by-case basis. You can also generally exclude the acceptance of cookies. If you do not accept cookies, the functionality of our platform may be limited, and the scope of services may be reduced.
The Solar Spider platform does not currently respond to a "Do Not Track" signal in the HTTP header of your browser or mobile application, as there is no standardisation regarding the interpretation of this signal.
You can find out the exact storage period of a cookie, if not yet specifically stated below, from the respective cookie by displaying the cookie in your browser.
If you access websites of other providers by clicking on our platform (e.g. to make a reservation with an organiser or to buy a ticket), it is possible that these other websites also place cookies on your computer. We have no control over these cookies and the data they collect and cannot assume any responsibility for them.
3 Transfer of personal data to third parties and disclosure
Solar Spider treats all user data confidentially and does not publish such data without informing and without consent of the user.
3.2 Analysis of our platform / tracking
3.2.1 Google Analytics
Solar Spider uses Hotjar Heatmaps, Recordings and Polls, each offering provided by Hotjar Ltd. ("Hotjar"), St. Julian's Business Centre, Elia Zammit Street, St. Julians 1000, Malta. Hotjar provides an all-in-one analytics and feedback tool that captures the online behaviour and feedback of a website's visitors. It helps to improve the user experience and performance of websites. The analytics tools allow Solar Spider to measure and monitor user behaviour on our website, while the feedback tool allows Solar Spider to receive feedback. A unique user identifier is assigned to the website visitor so that Hotjar can track returning users. No data is collected in this way that could directly identify an individual person. Where data is collected using the Recordings feature, Hotjar also provides an automated suppression function whereby the data is suppressed in the visitor's browser on the client side, meaning that relevant personally identifiable information is not transmitted to the Hotjar servers. The data collected through Hotjar is stored in Ireland using Amazon Web Services infrastructure. The relevant storage period is a maximum of 365 days. We use Hotjar's functions because they serve our legitimate business interest in providing and improving our website; in this respect, the relevant legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. To prevent us and Hotjar from collecting and processing your personal data, you can stop this ("opt-out") by following the instructions on Hotjar's website: https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/opt-out.
3.5 Service providers
We use various external service providers to provide services in connection with the Solar Spider Platform. These service providers may be located within or outside the European Union.
Service providers may assist us with the following activities:
product development, maintenance, bug fixes and protection against cyber-attacks (e.g. bot protection, etc.).
providing Solar Spider services using third-party platforms and software tools (for example, by integrating with our APIs); or
The legal basis for this is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
We use HubSpot for our online marketing activities. This is an integrated software solution that we use to cover various aspects of our online marketing.
Content management (website and blog)
Email marketing (newsletters and automated mailings, e.g. to provide downloads)
Social media publishing & reporting
Reporting (e.g. traffic sources, hits, etc. ...)
Contact management (e.g. user segmentation & CRM)
Landing pages and contact forms
This information as well as the content of our website is stored on servers of our software partner HubSpot. It may be used by us to contact visitors to our website and to determine which services or offers are of interest to them.
HubSpot is a software company based in the USA (25 First Street, Cambridge, MA 02141 USA) with a branch in Ireland (2nd Floor 30 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland) and Germany (Koppenstraße 93, 10234 Berlin). Within the scope of processing via HubSpot, data may be transferred to the USA. In addition to the order processing agreement, standard contractual clauses as well as other suitable guarantees have been agreed to ensure the security of a data transfer.
The legal basis for this is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR either via the contact form, the cookie banner or other opt-in options.
3.4 Compliance with the law
Solar Spider may disclose your data, including personal data, to courts, law enforcement agencies and other governmental bodies or to authorised third parties if and to the extent required or permitted by law or if disclosure is objectively necessary for the following purposes:
to comply with our legal obligations,
to respond to claims brought against Solar Spider in accordance with the requirements of any legal process,
in response to verified requests in connection with a criminal investigation or an alleged or suspected illegal act or other action that may expose us, you or other users to legal liability,
for fraud detection and prevention purposes; or
to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Solar Spider, our employees, other members or the public.
Where appropriate, we will inform members of legal requests unless (i) disclosure is prohibited by the legal process itself, by a court order served on us, or by applicable law, or (ii) we believe that disclosure would be futile or ineffective, would create a risk of bodily harm or injury to a person or group of persons, or would create a risk of fraud against the Solar Spider platform or other members. In cases where we comply with legal requests for these reasons without notification, we will attempt to subsequently notify the member concerned of the request, if appropriate, if we believe in good faith that we are no longer prevented from doing so.

5 Your rights
If personal data of yours is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights against the data controller:
5.1 Right of access
You may request confirmation from us as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed by us.

the purposes for which the personal data are processed;
the categories of personal data which are processed;
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed;
the planned duration of the storage of the personal data relating to you or, if specific information on this is not possible, criteria for determining the storage period;

You have the right to request information on whether personal data concerning you are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.
In order to be able to ensure that the person making the request is also the person they claim to be, we require proof of identity. This can be a copy of an official identification document. Please black out or make unrecognisable any serial numbers, passport numbers or similar. We will only use this copy for identification purposes and to process the request.
5.2 Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion with respect to the controller if the personal data processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The controller must make the rectification without undue delay.
5.3 Right to restriction of processing
You may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you under the following conditions:
if you dispute the accuracy, of the personal data concerning you for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
if the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
if we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate grounds override your grounds.
If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by us before the restriction is lifted.
5.4 Right to erasure
5.4.1 Obligation to delete
You may request us to erase the personal data relating to you without delay and we are obliged to erase such data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:
The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
The erasure of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which we are subject.

We generally store your personal data for as long as is necessary for the performance of the contract between you and us and to comply with our legal obligations.

5.4.2 Information to third parties
If we have made the personal data concerning you public and we are obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, we shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested them to erase all links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data.
The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that the processing is necessary
for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Art. 9(2)(h) and (i) and Art. 9(3) GDPR;
for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
5.5 Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that
the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR and
the processing is carried out with the help of automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not affect the freedoms and rights of other persons.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us.
5.6 Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We will then no longer process the personal data relating to you unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
You also have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR.
5.6.1 Right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
5.6.2 Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision
is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
is permitted by legislation of the European Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject, and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
is done with your explicit consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
5.7 Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
