Data privacy policy Liberty Hotel GmbH


We are delighted to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in our hotels. Protecting personal data is of utmost importance to us. The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject, shall always be in accordance with the applicable European and country-specific regulations.

If it is necessary to process personal data and if there is no legal foundation for such processing, we will always seek the consent of the data subject.

You can of course at any time revoke your consent, effective immediately. Please contact our data protection officer regarding such matters. Contact details can be found in the lower section of the data protection declaration.

The following section is intended to inform the general public of the scope and purpose of the personal data that THE LIBERTY Hotel GmbH processes. The data protection declaration is also intended to explain the rights of the respective persons.

Definition of terms

Liberty Hotel GmbH’s data protection declaration is based on the terminology used by the European body issuing directives and regulations upon decree of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration is intended to be easy for the public, our guests and our business partners to read and understand. The terminology used will be explained here to facilitate comprehension.

We use the following and other terms in this data protection declaration and on our website:

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereafter referred to as “data subject”). A 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, locations, an online identifier, or by reference to one or more factors specific to his or her physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller (person responsible for processing).

Processing is any operation or set of operations carried out with or without the assistance of automated processes, which is performed upon personal data and serves to capture, collect, organize, sort, store, adapt or modify, to read, retrieve, use or disclose through transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, to reconcile or link, restrict, erase or destroy data.

Restriction of processing means to mark saved personal data with the objective of restricting future processing.

Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, particularly when used to analyze or forecast aspects relating to performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or change of location of this natural person.

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without providing additional information, as long as the additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data cannot be associated with an identified or identifiable natural person.

The controller is a natural person or legal entity, a public authority or any 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 processing are determined by Union law or national law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his or her nomination may be designated by Union law or national law of the Member States.

A processor is a natural person or legal entity, a public authority or any other body that processes data on behalf of a controller.

The recipient is a natural person or legal entity, public authority or any other body to whom data is disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, authorities which may receive data in the framework of a particular inquiry pursuant to Union law or the law of Member States shall not be regarded as recipients.

A third party is a natural person or legal entity, a public authority or other body, with the exception of the controller, the processor and the persons reporting directly to the controller or the processor who are authorized to process personal data.

Consent is any freely given specific and informed indication of the data subject’s wishes by which the data subject signifies agreement in an informed and clear manner, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative action, to his or her personal data being processed in a specific case.

Registration

The data subject may register on the website of the controller by entering his/her personal data. The personal data transmitted to the controller is determined by the input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject will be used only for internal purposes by the controller and collected and saved only for internal purposes. The controller can approve disclosure to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service), who will also use the personal data only for internal purposes attributable to the controller.

Registration on the controller’s website causes the IP address of the data subject’s Internet Service Provider (ISP), the date and the time of registration to be saved. This data is stored given the fact that this is the only way that the misuse of our services can be prevented and this data allows for any offenses and copyright infringements committed to be investigated, if necessary. Thus saving this data is required to protect the controller. This data will not be passed on to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the passing on of that data serves criminal prosecution.

By registering the data subject and voluntarily providing personal data, the controller is meant to provide the data subject with content or services that, due to the nature of the case, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify or to erase at any time the personal data given at registration completely from the data stock of the controller.

The controller will inform any data subject at any time of the saved personal data on the data subject. Further, the controller will correct or erase any personal data when instructed or requested to do so by the data subject unless legal retention requirements specify otherwise.

Contact

Personal data is also processed by Liberty Hotel GmbH when you make such data available to us. This happens e.g. every time you contact us. We will use such personal data only for the purpose for which you make the data available to us upon contact. The information is given expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent. To the extent that the information is regarding communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also consent to our contacting you via these communication channels to reply to your inquiry when appropriate.

Security

THE LIBERTY Hotel GmbH implements a wide range of technical and organizational measured to protect your personal data from unintentional or unlawful erasure, modification or loss and from unauthorized disclosure or access.

However, transferring data e.g. via the Internet always poses a risk of security gaps, meaning that absolute security cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to communicate personal data to us through alternative paths, such as by telephone.

Links to other websites

This website contains links to other websites (so-called external links).

As a supplier, Liberty Hotel GmbH is responsible for our own content as required by the existing European and national legislation. This content is to be distinguished from links to content of other suppliers. We have no control over the compliance of the operators of other websites with European and national regulations. Please refer to the data protection declarations on the respective websites. Liberty Hotel GmbH does not assume any responsibility for third-party contents which are provided for use through links and identified as such and does not adopt their contents as its own. Any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, and any damage resulting from the use of or failure to use such information, is the responsibility of the provider of the site to which a link has been made.

Cookies

We use cookies to make our website user-friendly and to best meet your needs. Cookies are small files that, as soon as you visit a website, are sent from the website to your browser and saved locally on your terminal device (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.).

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many websites contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string that allows websites and servers to be attributed to the specific browser in which the cookie is saved. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID. This information is used to automatically recognize you when you visit the website again with the same terminal device and to make navigation easier.

The use of cookies can be accepted or rejected in the settings for your browser; this includes webtracking. You may configure your browser such that it denies to accept cookies generally or that you will be informed before a cookie will be stored.  This may, however, impair proper functioning of the website (e.g. when placing orders). Your browser also offers a feature to clear cookies (e.g. via “Clear browsing data”). This is possible in all common browsers. More information can be found in the operating instructions or in the browser settings.

Gathering general data and information

THE LIBERTY Hotel GmbH website collects a range of general data every time a data subject or an automatic system visits the site. This general data is saved in the server log files. The following can be collected:

  • The type and version of the browser used
  • The operating system used by the system accessing the site
  • The website from which the accessing system approaches our website
  • The subsites addressed by the system accessing our website
  • The date and time of website access
  • The web protocol address (IP address)
  • The Internet Service Provider of the accessing system
  • Other similar data and information that serves to avert danger in the event of attacks to our information technology systems

Liberty Hotel GmbH does not use this general data and information to identify the data subject. Rather the information is used to:

  • Correctly deliver the website contents
  • Optimize the website contents and advertising
  • Ensure correct functioning of our information technology systems and website technology
  • Support law enforcement agencies by providing information required for criminal proceedings in the event of a cyber attack.

Liberty Hotel GmbH assesses the anonymously collected data and information for statistical purposes as well as to improve data protection and security within our company, thus ultimately ensuring the ideal level of protection for the personal data that we process. The anonymous server log file data is saved separately from the personal data provided by the data subject.

Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

Rights of data subject

Right of confirmation: Each data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her is being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact the controller.

Right of access: Each data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller free of charge information about his or her personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information. Furthermore, the European directives and regulations grant the data subject access to the following information:

  • The purposes of processing
  • The categories of personal data being processed
  • The recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organizations
  • Where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period
  • The existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data, or restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject, or to object to such processing
  • The existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
  • Where the personal data is not collected from the data subject: any available information as to the source of the data
  • The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.

Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain information as to whether personal data is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. Where this is the case, the data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.

If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact the controller.

Right to rectification: Each data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact the controller.

Right to erasure (right to be forgotten): Each data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:

  • The personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  • The data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
  • The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
  • The personal data has been unlawfully processed.
  • The personal data has to be erased to ensure compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  • The personal data has been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by Liberty Hotel GmbH, he or she may, at any time, contact the controller.  The erasure request will be complied with immediately.

Where Liberty Hotel GmbH has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, Liberty Hotel GmbH, taking account available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, that personal data, as far as processing is not required. The controller will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

Right to restriction of processing: Each data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of its use instead.
  • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but it is required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending verification of whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by Liberty Hotel GmbH, he or she may, at any time, contact the controller. Restriction of processing will then be immediately arranged.

Right to data portability: Each data subject shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.  He or she shall have the right to transmit that data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data has been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not 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, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact the controller.

Right to object: Each data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

Liberty Hotel GmbH 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 establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If Liberty Hotel GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject expresses objection to Liberty Hotel GmbH to the processing for direct marketing purposes, Liberty Hotel GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

Where personal data is processed by Liberty Hotel GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, the data subject, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, shall have the right to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact the controller. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

Automated individual decision-making, including profiling: The data subject shall have the right 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, as long as the decision:

  • Is not necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller   or
  • Is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests   or
  • Is based on the data subject's explicit consent.

If the decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, Liberty Hotel GmbH shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact the controller.

Right to withdraw data protection consent: Each data subject shall have the right to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her 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 the controller.

Data protection for job applications and application process

The controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. Processing can occur electronically. This applies particularly when an applicant transmits to the controller corresponding application documents electronically, e.g. by e-mail. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents shall be automatically erased six months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interests in this sense could be e.g. the burden of proof in a lawsuit pursuant to the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

Use of Google Analytics (with anonymization feature)

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google, Inc. ("Google“). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies," text files saved on your computer that allow your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website will usually be passed on to a Google server in the USA and saved there. If IP address anonymization is activated on this website, Google will abbreviate your IP address within the member countries of the European Union or in other countries that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will complete IP addresses be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. The operator of this website has hired Google to use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports on website activities, and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet. Google will not bring together the IP address transmitted by your browser in the course of Google Analytics with other data. You can avoid the saving of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, if you do so, you might not be able to use the full functionality on this website. You can prevent the compilation of data (including your IP address) through generated cookies and related to your website use as well as processing thereof by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available through the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

To prevent data collection by Google Analytics, select the link below. This installs an “Opt-out” cookie in your browser, and data is no longer collected when you visit this website.

Deactivating Google Analytics

More information on the terms of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/

In view of the discussion on the use of analysis tools with full IP-addresses, Liberty Hotel GmbH wishes to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension/add-on "_anonymizeIp()" and that IP addresses are thus processed only in an abbreviated form in order to rule out any direct relation to natural persons.

Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics Remarketing

Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick, which work on all devices. The supplier is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This function makes it possible to connect the advertising target groups generated with Google Analytics Remarketing with the functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick, which work on all devices. This makes it possible to display interest-based customized advertising messages, depending on your prior usage and browsing patterns on a device (e.g. cell phone) in a manner tailored to you as well as on any of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have given us pertinent consent, Google will connect your web and app browser progressions with your Google account for this purpose. As a result, it is possible to display the same personalized advertising messages on every device you log into with your Google account.

To support this function, Google Analytics records Google authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily connected with our Google Analytics data to define and compile the target groups for the ads to be displayed on all devices.

You have the option to permanently object to remarketing/targeting across all devices by deactivating personalized advertising. To do this, use this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/. The consolidation of the recorded data in your Google account shall occur exclusively based on your consent, which you may give to Google and also revoke there (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). For data recording processes that are not consolidated in your Google account (for instance because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the consolidation of data), the recording of data is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.

For further information and the pertinent data protection regulations, please consult the Data Privacy Policies of Google at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising service supplied by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

We use so-called Conversion Tracking within the scope of Google AdWords. If you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for Conversion Tracking is generated. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser generates on the user’s computer. The cookies are valid for only 30 days and do not serve to personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can detect that the user has clicked the ad and moved to the page.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected with the aid of conversion cookies is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who choose to use Conversion Tracking. The customers discover the total number of users who have clicked their ad and moved to a page with a Conversion Tracking tag. The do not, however, receive any information that allows them to personally identify users. If you would not like to participate in tracking, you can easily object to the use by deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking cookie in the user settings of your Internet browser. You are then no longer part of the Conversion Tracking statistics.

Conversion cookies are saved in compliance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior, to optimize his website offering as well as advertising.

To review more detailed information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, please consult the Data Privacy Policies of Google at:: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can set your browser to: inform you when cookies are generated and prompt you to permit them only in exceptional cases; refuse to accept cookies in certain cases or always; automatically clear cookies when you close the browser. If you deactivate cookies, functioning of this website may be restricted.

Facebook Pixel

For conversion measurement, our website uses the visitor tracking pixel by Facebook, Facebook, Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

This allows the behavior of site visitors to be tracked after they click a Facebook ad to reach the provider's website. This allows an analysis of the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes and their future optimization.

The data collected is anonymous to us as the website operator and we cannot use it to draw any conclusions about our users' identities. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, which may make a connection to your Facebook profile and which may use the data for its own advertising purposes, as stipulated in the Facebook privacy policy. This will allow Facebook to display ads both on Facebook and on third-party sites. We as site operator have no control over how this data is used.

Check out Facebook's privacy policy to learn more about protecting your privacy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

You can also deactivate the “Custom Audiences” remarketing feature in the Ads Settings section at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You will first need to log into Facebook.

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can opt out of usage-based advertising from Facebook on the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.

Our social media presences

Data processing through social networks

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks used by us in detail can be found below.

Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can generally analyze your user behavior extensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). By visiting our social media presences, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address.

With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, you can be shown interest-based advertising inside and outside the respective social media presence. Provided you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising may be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot track all processing on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details, please refer to the terms of use and data protection provisions of the respective social media portals.


Legal basis

Our social media presences are intended to ensure the most comprehensive presence possible on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para 1 lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which are to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR).


Responsible party and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both vis-à-vis us and vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. vis-à-vis Facebook).

Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.


Storage period

The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).
