Privacy policy

Personal data - No disclosure to third parties

To optimise your use of wein.plus, you can create a so-called user profile in which you can also enter personal data about yourself. This allows us to customise 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 the registration of companies.

We also store important administrative activities of our users, such as changing the user profile, logging in and out of services or important user e-mails. This helps us to help you with problems or to recognise improper use of wein.plus services. However, we do not store which pages you visit on wein.plus, so we do not create any user 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 or we are obliged to disclose this data, for example due to a court order.

In your own 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 essential for the functioning of the website:

Storage of your login data: When you log in to the system, your user name 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 is saved permanently so that you do not have to re-enter your user data when you visit the site again. It is not possible for cookies to be read by other websites (third-party providers).

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

Double opt-in for your security

Your e-mail address will only be used for wein.plus services (newsletters, e-mail notifications, etc.) if you expressly register for them. For your security, we also send a confirmation to the e-mail address provided, which must be confirmed again by the recipient (double opt-in). This takes place when you first register with wein.plus.

You can unsubscribe from all 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 wein.plus website always uses a secure transmission mode https://. This ensures that your data, in particular credit card information or account information, is secure.

Facebook and other social media plugins

For your security, we do not use Facebook plugins or other plugins on our website that transfer data to social networks when you visit Advertisement. 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 of wine regions). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive maps to visualise geographical information.

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

When you access the subpages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) will be transmitted to Google servers and stored there after you have given your consent. This may also result in transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. Your data will be transmitted regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. In order to avoid an association with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button.

Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analyses them. The collection, storage and evaluation are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of Google's legitimate interest in the display of 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 agree to the future transmission of your data to Google in connection with 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 will function without restriction regardless of this.

further information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found in Google's privacy policy ("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

Further information on the additional terms of use for Google Maps can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html
