The Northern Helicopter GmbH attaches particular importance to protecting your personal data. Your personal data are stored and processed in accordance with the data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
The following information provides an overview of the nature, extent and purpose of collecting, processing and transferring personal data as well as the safety measures deployed to protect these data.
Personal data are individual information on personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person such as e.g. your name, address, telephone number, your date of birth as well your email and IP address.
When you visit our website or use our services the device used for accessing the site automatically transmits log data (connection data) to our servers. The relevant information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data transmitted, the browser and its version number, the domain names of your internet provider, the referrer URL, which is the website you visited before switching to our website, and the corresponding IP address. This collection is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest under Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.
The data collected are used exclusively for evaluating the data statistically to ensure operation and safety and to optimise processing of the offer. For security reasons, however, we reserve the right to inspect log files retroactively if we have sufficient grounds to suspect illegal usage. These data are deleted after 14 days at the latest.
In several areas of the website we use so-called “cookies”, for example to identify the preferences of the users and thus to optimally design the website. This allows for easier navigation and a high degree of user-friendliness of the website.
Cookies are small files which are stored on the visitor’ s hard disk drive. Most cookies used on the website are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies stay on your devices until you delete them. The cookies make it possible for your browser to be recognized the next time you visit.
When sending us an enquiry using the contact form, your personal details are saved for processing the enquiry and any related follow-up questions in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR. This data is not passed on to third parties without your consent.
The data entered into the contact form remain with us until you request that they be deleted, you withdraw your consent to the storage of your data, or the purpose of the data storage is no longer given (i.e. after the successful processing of your request).
We deploy technical and organisational security measures to adequately protect the data that you have made available to us from being unintentionally or intentionally manipulated, lost, destroyed or accessed by unauthorised persons. Therefore, we are using SSL encryption for the transmission of confidential content e.g. enquires which you send to us as the site operator. An encrypted connection can be recognised when the web address changes from "http://" to "https://" and a padlock symbol is shown in your browser bar. When SSL encryption is activated, the data which you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. Our security measures are kept up-to-date.
When you sign up on our website to order goods, services and information in our online portal, personal data will be collected. This includes your name and address as well as your telephone number and email address which serve as contact and communications data.
Signing up allows you to access services and contents which are only available to registered users. If needed, registered users have the possibility to alter or delete data provided in the framework of registration at any time. Where appropriate, your data used for processing orders are transmitted to shipping and payment providers commissioned by us. Your personal data are not disseminated to third parties in any other way. The processing of your personal data is carried out within the framework of implementing the contract (in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. b). Deletion of your data is carried out in accordance with the applicable statutory retention periods.
When you subscribe to our newsletter on our website we use the personal data you provide only for distributing the newsletter.
The subscription to our newsletter takes place by way of the double opt-in process. This means that upon signing up you receive an email that requests you to confirm your subscription. This confirmation is necessary to prevent the use of third-party email addresses. The subscriptions to our newsletter are recorded so that the subscription process can be retraced in accordance with with legal requirements (consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR). This includes the logging of the time of subscription, the time of confirmation and the IP address.
Any data that we obtain from you as well as the logging information will not be disseminated to third parties. Your consent to the collection and storage of your data as well as their usage for the distribution of the newsletter can be withdrawn at any time without stating any reasons. A link to cancel your subscription can be found at the end of every newsletter.

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA) on our website. reCAPTCHA is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
reCAPTCHA is intended to check as to whether a data entry on the website (e.g. in a contact form) is done by a human or by an automated programme. To this end, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitors on the basic of various criteria. The analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various pieces of information retrieved from the user (e.g. IP address, waiting time of the user and mouse movements). The data collected during the analysis are forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA-analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is taking place.
According to GDPR, the website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting his online offering from misuse, espionage and spam.
This website uses the functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. It is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files which are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information about your use of the website generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google has been certified under the Privacy Shield programme, thereby guaranteeing compliance with the European data protection regulations (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of the user behaviour, to both optimise his web-offers and also to optimise advertising. Deletion of the user and results data takes place after 14 months.
We have activated an IP anonymisation function on this website. Through this, Google shortens your IP address prior to its transfer to the USA provided that you are within a member states of the European Union or in another contracting state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In exceptional circumstances only, the full IP address is transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this data on behalf of the website operator to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide other website services related to website and internet usage on behalf of the website provider. Your IP address, collected in the context of Google Analytics, is not combined with other data provided by Google.
Browser Plug-ins / Objection Against Data Collection
You can prevent the storage of cookies with the appropriate settings in your browser. Please note, however, that if you do so not all features of the website will be available to you. Furthermore, you can prevent Google from gaining access to the data created by the cookie and your usage data (incl. your IP address) and prevent Google from processing such data by downloading the following plug-in for your browser:
As an alternative to the browser plug-in, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-out-cookie is placed which prevents the collection of your data when you visit this website in the future. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must reactivate the opt-out cookie. More information regarding the handling of user data by Google Analytics is available at Google under the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en
We have entered into a data processing contract with Google and we strictly apply the regulations of the supervisory authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographics in Google Analytics
This website uses the demographics function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be compiled with information regarding the age, gender, and interests of the website visitors. These data stem from targeted Google advertising, as well as from the user data of third parties. These data cannot be assigned to any specific person. You are able at any time to deactivate this feature in the display settings of your Google account or generally forbid the collection of your data via Google Analytics as stated in point “Objection Against Data Collection”.
Based on the legitimate interest of the provider, a situation can arise where contents, services and benefits of third parties are integrated which complement our service offerings. Examples of this are maps from Google Maps, embedded YouTube videos and links to external websites. When using these services, the respective provider may recognise and store your user IP address. We are committed to integrating only third-party services which use IP addresses solely to provide their contents. However, we have no control as to whether a third party logs IP addresses for example for statistical purposes. With respect to the starting of websites which are accessed through this website, this Privacy Statement does not regulate the collection, the transfer or the use of personal data by third parties. In this regard, please also pay attention to the individual privacy statements of the respective third-party providers and service providers to which we link on our website.
Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Within the framework of the services, information on the use of our website are transferred to Google servers. Detailed information can be found in the Data Privacy Centre under google.com: Transparency and choice http://www.google.com/intl/en/privacy/ and data privacy provisionshttp://www.google.com/intl/en/privacy/privacy-policy.html Google has been certified under the Privacy Shield programme, thereby guaranteeing compliance with the European data protection regulations (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
We use so-called “social plug-ins”. Currently, these are plug-ins for the services of Facebook, Google+, Xing, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. In some situations, these plug-ins will be used to transfer information to these service providers which, where appropriate, may also use such information. This information may include personal data. We prevent the unwanted collection of data using a two-click solution. A direct contact between social networks and visitors to this website is first created when the visitor actively clicks on the share button and thus consents to the processing and transfer of data by third parties, as stated in Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR. This prevents every visited site from leaving digital traces, thus also improving privacy. The collection of data and transferral to the third party only occurs after the plug-in has been activated and only then a connection is established and data are transferred to the respective service provider. Which data are collected and how they are used can be found in the relevant privacy statements of the social networks. We do not collect any personal data using social media plug-ins, nor do we collect information about the use of social media.
If you are logged in to the platform, it is possible for the service provider to assign your visit to our website and to a specific user account. To prevent this, log out of the respective service before visiting our website.
