Privacy Policy

Personal data - No disclosure to third parties

For optimal use of wein.plus you can create a so-called user profile, in which you can also enter personal data about yourself. This enables us to adapt wein.plus specifically to your needs. However, you only enter the information that you really want to leave behind. We only require more detailed data for paid premium memberships and company registration.

We also store important administrative activities of our users, such as changing the user profile, logging in and out of services or important e-mails of the users. This helps us to help you with problems or to detect misuse of wein.plus services. However, we do not store which pages you visit on wein.plus, so we do not create usage profiles of this kind.

All personal data will of course be treated confidentially. As a matter of principle, we do not make your data available to third parties for use unless you have given your consent to this or we are obliged to disclose this data, for example due to a court order.

In your interest, we ask you to use secure access data (user name and password) to prevent unauthorised access to your personal data.


Cookies are only used on wein.plus if they are indispensable for the functioning of the website:

Storage of your login details: When you log in to the system, your username is stored in a cookie. You decide whether this cookie is deleted again after you close your browser (temporary cookie) or whether it is retained. If you use the "stay logged in" option, the user name will be stored permanently to save you having to re-enter your user data when you visit the site again. It is not possible for cookies to be read by other homepages (third-party providers).

No tracking cookies are used. Cookies are only used for necessary purposes (see above). Therefore, the use of cookies does not have to be confirmed by a consent banner when the page is called up, as is the case with many other websites.

Double Opt-In for your security

Your e-mail address will only be used for wein.plus services (newsletter, e-mail notifications etc.) if you expressly register for this. In addition, for your security, we send a confirmation to the specified e-mail address, which must be confirmed again by the recipient (double opt-in). This is already done when you first register at wein.plus.

You can unsubscribe from all ordered e-mail services etc. at any time in your profile or with the help of an unsubscribe link in the respective e-mails.

Secure transmission of payment information

For your security, the website of wein.plus always uses a secure transmission mode https://. This secures your data, in particular credit card information or account information.

Facebook and other social media plugins

For your security, we do not use Facebook plugins or other plugins on our pages that transmit data to social networks as early as Advertisement. Instead, we use direct links. Instead, we use direct links, the use of which is voluntary and which are always clearly recognisable as links to the social networks.

Google Maps

We use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google") on parts of the website (e.g. in the places or for Advertisement wine regions). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive maps to visually display geographical information.

Google Maps is only used if you expressly agree to this again before accessing the relevant areas of our website. Google Maps will not be used if you do not agree to this.

When you call up the sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there after you have given your consent. This may also result in a transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. Regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether a user account exists, the transfer of your data will take place. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. In order to avoid an allocation with your profile at Google, you must log out before activating the button.

Google stores your data (also for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. The collection, storage and evaluation are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of Google's legitimate interest in displaying personalised advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of Google websites. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles by contacting Google to exercise this right.

If you do not consent to the future transmission of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google Maps, you do not have to give your consent before accessing the relevant areas. In this case, Google Maps and thus the map display on our website cannot be used. All other areas of the website function independently of this without restriction.

further information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found in Google's data protection declaration ("Google Privacy Policy"): https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

You can view Google's terms of use at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html.

The provider of this website uses services of etracker GmbH from Hamburg, Germany(www.etracker.com) to analyse usage data. We do not use cookies for web analysis by default. Insofar as we use analysis and optimisation cookies, we obtain your explicit consent separately in advance. If this is the case and you consent, cookies will be used to enable a statistical coverage analysis of this website, a measurement of the success of our online marketing measures as well as test procedures, e.g. to test and optimise different versions of our online offer or its components.

Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f (legitimate interest) of the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our concern in terms of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is the optimisation of our online offer and our web presence.

General Terms and Conditions

1. Scope of application

1.1 The following terms and conditions apply to services provided by wein.plus on the wein.plus operated by Webpages, including the newsletters offered there. This includes in particular advertising banners as well as text advertising in newsletters (hereinafter referred to as "online advertising").

1.2 Deviating, conflicting or supplementary general terms and conditions shall not become part of the contract, even if wein.plus is aware of them, unless wein.plus expressly agrees to their validity in writing.

2. Conclusion of contract

2.1 A contract between wein.plus and the advertiser, an advertising agency or another third party (hereinafter uniformly referred to as the "customer") is concluded upon acceptance of the customer's order by wein.plus.

2.2 A contract for advertising with an advertising agency or an advertising broker is only concluded by wein.plus for named customers. On request, the advertising agency or the advertising intermediary must provide proof of its commissioning.

3. Rights and obligations of wein.plus

3.1 wein.plus shall provide the advertising order in accordance with the information in the order form. The customer has no right to a placement of the advertisement at a certain position on the respective website or printed work.

3.2 Insofar as the remuneration for online advertising is calculated on a CPM basis, wein.plus shall inform the customer on request (before the order is placed) of the number of page impressions as well as the click rate (ratio of page impressions to clicks) of Webpages, on which the customer's online advertising is placed.

3.3 Insofar as the advertising is not obviously recognisable as advertising, wein.plus can make it recognisable as such, in particular by marking it with the word "advertisement" and/or spatially setting it apart from the editorial content in order to make the advertising character clear.

3.4 In consultation with the customer, wein.plus is entitled to provide partial services.

3.5 wein.plus reserves the right to postpone the date of publication of an advertisement if there are legal concerns (e.g. copyright, criminal law) against the publication, if the relevant service for the online advertisement is not available for legal reasons or if technical circumstances prevent publication on the agreed date. wein.plus will take into account the interests of the customer known to it when postponing the date.

3.6 wein.plus is entitled to interrupt the advertising or to reject materials and content provided by the customer for the advertising if there is a justified suspicion that the content and materials, including the content referred to by means of a link within the online advertising, violate applicable law of the Federal Republic of Germany or infringe the rights of third parties. wein.plus will notify the customer of the blocking without delay, stating the reasons.

wein.plus may in such a case offer the customer to change the respective advertisement. Additional costs resulting from a new or reprogramming of Webpages with the online advertising are to be borne by the customer in accordance with the prices stated in the media data; expenses are to be reimbursed.

3.7 wein.plus may also reject content and materials if they do not meet the set requirements in terms of content or quality. In this case, the customer is entitled to send wein.plus a modified version of the advertising. If this replacement advertisement is not received by wein.plus in good time, i.e. at least 12 hours before the first publication in the case of online advertising or 60 working days before publication in the case of print advertising, wein.plus shall retain the claim to the contractually agreed remuneration even if the advertisement is not published or is not published in good time.

3.8 wein.plus further reserves the right to reject advertising from competitors of wein.plus. The parties agree that wein.plus is entitled to extraordinary termination if wein.plus only becomes aware of the circumstances justifying rejection after conclusion of the contract. Further claims of the customer do not exist in such a case.

3.9 wein.plus also has the right to conclude advertising contracts with competitors of the customer.

3.10 wein.plus does not owe the creation of graphics and advertising texts. As far as wein.plus renders these services on the basis of an individual written agreement, the costs for the creation of graphics as well as advertising texts are remunerated separately.

5.2 The granting of rights shall be limited in time for the duration of this contract. The rights of use are expressly transferred only as simple rights, i.e. the customer remains entitled to dispose of the rights to the contractual content and materials himself.

6.2 wein.plus reserves the right to change the remuneration laid down in the Media Data. A change shall be made no more than 2 times a year. If these prices are changed, the new conditions shall also apply to the current contracts, with immediate effect in the case of price reductions, and after one month after receipt of the price change notification in the case of price increases.

6.3 In the event of price increases of more than 5% compared to the previous price, the customer has an extraordinary right of termination. The customer must exercise this right in writing to wein.plus within ten working days of receipt of the notification of the price increase, otherwise the price change is deemed to have been approved.

6.4 The prices published by wein.plus are net amounts. wein.plus will show any statutory value added tax separately.

6.5 Advertising services of wein.plus are due for payment on the first day of publication of the advertisement against invoicing by wein.plus.

6.6 For advance notifications (prenotification) for basic direct debits, a shortened period of
of 3 calendar days.

6.7 The notice period for Premium Membership is four weeks before expiry. If no notice of termination is given by then, the Premium Membership shall be extended by a further year.

7. Warranty/Liability

7.1 In the event of defects in the advertising, wein.plus shall, at its discretion, first provide rectification or replacement. If the subsequent fulfilment fails, the customer can demand a reduction of the payment or cancellation of the contract at his discretion. In the case of only minor defects, the customer does not have the right to withdraw from the contract.

7.2 The client must report obvious defects in the advertising in writing within a period of 2 weeks after the advertising has gone live; otherwise the assertion of the warranty claim is excluded. Timely dispatch of the notice of defects shall be sufficient to meet the deadline.

7.3 Events of force majeure which make the performance of a service or obligation substantially more difficult or impossible shall entitle the party concerned to postpone the performance of this service or obligation by the duration of the hindrance and a reasonable start-up period. Industrial disputes in the companies of the parties or industrial disputes in third companies shall be deemed equivalent to force majeure. If, due to the nature of the impediment, it cannot be expected that the service will be provided within a reasonable period of time, each party shall be entitled to withdraw from this contract in whole or in part due to the part of the service not yet performed.

7.4 Otherwise, wein.plus is only liable insofar as wein.plus, its vicarious agents and/or legal representatives are guilty of intentional or grossly negligent behaviour. This does not apply if main contractual obligations are violated by wein.plus, its vicarious agents and/or legal representatives.

7.5 In the event of slight negligence, liability on the part of wein.plus and/or its vicarious agents and legal representatives is excluded in the case of financial loss with regard to indirect damage, in particular consequential harm caused by a defect, unforeseeable damage or atypical damage as well as loss of profit.

7.6 In the case of pecuniary loss in the event of slight negligence, the liability of wein.plus shall be limited to the total remuneration payable by the customer in accordance with clause 6.

7.7 A legally prescribed liability of wein.plus independent of fault - in particular a liability according to the product liability law as well as a legal guarantee liability - remains unaffected by the above limitations of liability (section 7.4-7.6). Likewise, clauses 7.4 to 7.6 do not apply to the liability of wein.plus in the event of culpable injury to the life, body or health of the customer.

7.8 Sections 7.4 to 7.7 include all contractual and non-contractual claims resulting from this agreement or the use of the services and/or wein.plus site.

7.9 Claims by the customer against wein.plus due to poor performance or defects in the advertising are subject to a limitation period of one year after the claim arises and knowledge or grossly negligent or wilful ignorance of the circumstances giving rise to the claim.
