In this matter and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time using the contact options listed in the Legal Notice.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you may submit to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption.

In server log files, the provider of the website automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Visited page on our domain
- Date and time of the server request
- Browser type and version
- Operating system in use
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Data transmission upon conclusion of contract for the purchase and dispatch of goods
Personal data will only be transferred to third parties if necessary, in the context of the contract. Third parties can be, for example, payment service providers or logistics companies. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly agreed to it.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Data transmitted via the contact form will be stored including your contact data in order to be able to process your enquiry or to be available for follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out prior to revocation remains unaffected by your revocation.
Data transmitted via the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or until there is no longer any need for data storage. Mandatory legal regulations - especially retention deadlines - remain unaffected.
Storage duration of Contributions and Comments
Contributions and comments and related data, such as IP addresses, are stored. The content remains on our website until it is completely deleted or must be deleted for legal reasons.
The storage of contributions and comments is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). Revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we need your e-mail address as well as some information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of this e-mail address and that you agree to receive the newsletter.
To ensure that the newsletter will be sent by mutual agreement, we use the so-called double-opt-in procedure through which the potential recipient can be added to our distribution list. The user will then receive a confirmation e-mail to confirm the registration in a legally binding manner. Only if such confirmation is given, the address is actively added to our distribution list.
We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and offers. The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).
We use Newsletter2Go as our newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Sendinblue GmbH. Sendinblue GmbH is not allowed to sell your data or use it for other purposes than for sending newsletters. Sendinblue GmbH is a German certified provider which was selected on the basis of the requirements of the Data Protection Basic Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act.
You can find further information here: https://www.sendinblue.com/information-for-email-recipients/
You can revoke your consent to the storage of your data, your email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example by using the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.
The data protection regulations are always subject to technical innovations. For this reason we ask you to inform yourselves about our data protection regulations at regular intervals by consulting our privacy notice.
For the embedding and presentation of video content our website uses plug-ins of YouTube. The video portal is provided by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When a page with integrated YouTube plug-in is called up, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells YouTube which of our pages you have visited.
YouTube can directly link your surfing behaviour to your personal profile, if you are logged in to your YouTube account. By logging out beforehand you can prevent this.
YouTube is used to attractively present our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Some cookies are "session cookies" which are deleted automatically after the end of your browser session. Other cookies remain on your end device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognise you when you return to our website.
With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the placing of cookies. Many web browsers can be configurated so that cookies are deleted automatically when you close the program. Deactivating cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.
The placement of cookies, which are necessary for electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping basket), is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO. As operators of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies are placed (e.g. for analysis functions), this will be treated separately in this Privacy Notice.
You will find further information to Cookies and your options for modifications in our Cookie Notice.
Our website uses features of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses "cookies." These are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device that make the analysis of website activity possible. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually in the USA.
The setting of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analysing visitor behaviour in order to optimise our website and, where applicable, our advertising.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymisation function. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before sending it to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transfers the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activities and to provide us with further services associated with the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
Your webbrowser can prevent the placement of cookies. This might lead to a limited functionality of our website. You can also prevent the collection of data concerning your use of the website including your IP address and the subsequent data processing by Google. For this purpose download and install the browser plugin from: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.
Objections to data collection
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by using the following link. An opt-out-cookie is set to prevent the collection of your information for future visits to our site: Deactivate Google Analytics
In order to fully comply with the legal data protection requirements, we have signed a contract with Google for order processing.
Demographic characteristics at Google Analytics
Our website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. It can be used to generate reports that contain information about the age, gender and interests of visitors of the site. This data is taken from interest-based advertising by Google as well as from visitor data from third parties. It is not possible to relate the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. You can do this by changing the ad settings in your Google Account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section "Objections to data collection".
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
Our website uses Google AdWords. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of the online advertising program we work with conversion tracking. After a click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Google AdWords cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. The cookie enables Google and us to recognize that you have clicked on an ad and been directed to our site.
Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through websites of AdWords customers. Conversion cookies are used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. AdWords customers learn how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with conversion tracking tags. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that allows for personal identification of users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt out. In this case, the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. In this way, no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics takes place.
The storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As website operators, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and our advertising.
Details on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in the Google data protection regulations: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=de&hl=en-GB.
With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the placement of cookies. Deactivating cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.
Google Web Fonts
Our website uses Google’s Web Fonts. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
By using these web fonts it is possible to provide you with the presentation of our website as desired, regardless of the fonts that are available locally. This is done by obtaining the Google Web Fonts from a Google server in the USA and the associated transfer of your data to Google: your IP address and the page you have visited on our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the optimal presentation and transmission of our web presence.
The Google company is certified for the US-European data protection convention "Privacy Shield". This data protection agreement is designed to ensure compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.
Facebook social plug-ins
Our website uses social plug-ins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").
The plug-ins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on blue tile or a "thumbs-up" sign) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plug-ins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins?locale=en_US.
If you call up a website of our Internet site that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: by integrating the plug-ins, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the that page of our website. If you are logged in with Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-in, for example, if you push the "Like" button or make a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there.
If you are not a member on Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save your IP address.
To find out about the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection notice: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php. If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and link it with your membership data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. It is also possible to block Facebook social plug-ins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".
Facebook fan page
We use the services and features of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland with our Facebook fan page www.facebook.com/sonneninsel.fehmarn.
By calling up our Facebook fan page, your browser automatically establishes a connection to Facebook. As a result, data, such as your IP address, is collected and processed by Facebook. This happens through cookies, which are automatically stored on your PC. If you have your own Facebook account and are logged in, the data collected by Facebook can be directly linked with your Facebook account. If you do not wish this to happen, please log out of your Facebook account first. On our website we link to our Facebook fan page at several places. By clicking on the symbol marked with "f", you will leave our website and go directly to our fan page. This will establish a connection to the Facebook servers as described above and data will be collected and processed. The collected data is processed by Facebook and, possibly, transferred to countries outside the EU. Detailed information on the processing of data by Facebook can be found in the Facebook data policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy. Under this link you will also find information on the possible privacy settings of your Facebook account.
Facebook provides us as the operator of the fan page with data within the framework of Facebook Insights free of charge and anonymously in order to obtain statistical information on the use of our fan page. You can find detailed information on this at https://www.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.
As the operator of the fan page, we have no influence on the type and scope of the data collected by Facebook. Which data Facebook explicitly collects, uses for its own purposes or, if applicable, clearly assigns to individual user profiles, as well as the duration of the data storage and the possible transfer to third parties, is not conclusively named by Facebook and is not known to us.
You use our Facebook fan page and the associated interactive functions (e.g. likening, commenting, sharing) on your own responsibility.
Our website uses features of the Twitter service. The provider is Twitter Inc, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
You can change your privacy settings on Twitter: https://twitter.com/account/settings.
On this website the weather widget of Windfinder.com GmbH & Co.KG is integrated. To display the weather data, your IP address is transmitted to Windfinder.com GmbH & Co.KG. No other personal data is transmitted. Your IP address is logged by Windfinder.com GmbH & Co.KG for technical reasons and deleted after 7 days.
