The data processed in such circumstances can include health-related data such as data on injuries, blood alcohol levels, driving under the influence of narcotic substances, and the like.
• Third-party data: If, within the scope of your vehicle rental, you provided us with personal data of third parties (e.g. family members, second drivers, passengers), then we will also process these data.

C: The legal basis for data processing at Ynot Car Hire Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): Pursuant to this provision, the processing of your personal data is lawful if and to the extent that you have given your consent to such processing. Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point b) GDPR: Pursuant to this provision, the processing of your personal data is lawful if such processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party, or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract (e.g. when making the vehicle reservation).

D: The purposes of data processing at Ynot Car Hire Reserving and renting vehicles Purposes of data processing We process your master data, communication data, contract data, financial data and any data you have provided voluntarily for purposes of implementing your reservations and facilitating the conclusion and performance of your rental contract. Privacy policy Page 3 We moreover use the master data, communication data and contract data for customer relations purposes, for example to handle any complaints or changes of reservation that you contact us about. If you book your vehicle via travel agencies, online travel agencies or other agents, then your master data, communication data, rental information and, if applicable, financial information, will be transferred to us by our partners. We also use your master data and contract data for purposes of settling accounts (e.g. commissions and sales processing) with, for example, travel agencies, other agencies, franchise partners and cooperation partners. In order to be able to fulfil your reservation request, we transfer your data to partner companies in the event that we do not have the requested vehicle or vehicle type available. We are furthermore legally obliged – for purposes of preventing and investigating criminal offences – to compare your master and communication data with official perpetrator lists provided to us. Such comparisons also serve to ward off dangers and to facilitate prosecution by the state authorities. We furthermore use your data for your and our security, for example to avoid payment defaults and to prevent property offences (in particular fraud, theft, embezzlement). In some rental branches we use a technology that verifies the authenticity of ID documents (especially driver’s licence) and records the data electronically instead of manually. If you request to pay for your rental by invoice, then we process your master and financial data in order to assess your creditworthiness by obtaining the corresponding information from credit agencies. Once both contracting parties have fulfilled their obligations under the rental contract, your master data, financial and contract data will be stored until the statutory retention period expires.
