Hungry Dolphin appreciates your visit to our website and your interest in our company. We take the protection and security of your personal data entrusted to us seriously and would like you to feel safe and comfortable when visiting our Internet pages and using our services.

It is important to us that you know which personal data is collected when you make use of our offers and services and how we use them afterwards.

Purpose of data processing

If Hungry Dolphin processes personal data, this is done for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration.

Processing of personal data

Calling up our website

We collect and store the IP address assigned to your computer in order to transmit the contents of our website accessed by you to your computer (e.g. texts, images and files made available for download, etc.) (cf. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO). We also process this data to identify and track abuse. In this respect, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest in data processing is to ensure the proper functioning of our website and the transactions conducted on it.

If we process your data as described above for the purpose of providing the functions of our website, you are contractually obliged to make this data available to us.

Other purposes

Personal data is also processed if you provide it to us of your own accord, for example as part of an enquiry or booking or when ordering information material or a newsletter. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. The data processed by us include customer data, employee data and data from suppliers to the extent necessary for the purposes specified in this data protection declaration.

If we process your data as described above for the purpose of receiving and processing your respective inquiry, booking or (newsletter) order, you are contractually obliged to provide us with this data. Without these data we are not in a position to carry out an appropriate processing.

If you have consented to the processing of personal data (cf. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO), you can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

Sending newsletters and using the “MailChimp” shipping service

With our newsletter we inform you about current offers and news about products and service providers. If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you. The data that are entered into the input mask during registration are collected. In order to be able to address you personally, we ask you to state the title and the name. Of course you can also use a pseudonym here. This data will only be used for sending the newsletter. In addition to these data, we also store the date of registration. This logging serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses your e-mail address and orders the newsletter without your knowledge under your e-mail address.

Our newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

For this purpose, your e-mail address, as well as other voluntarily given data, will be processed on the servers of MailChimp in the USA on our behalf.

MailChimp also uses this data, according to its own statements, to optimize its own services. Any further use is excluded.

Besides the fact that MailChimp has declared itself to comply with the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, we have also concluded a “Data Processing Agreement” with MailChimp. This agreement obliges MailChimp to comply with our privacy policy. You can read the data protection regulations of MailChimp at

Cancellation / revocation: You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for the newsletter dispatch at any time. At the same time your consents to its dispatch via MailChimp and the statistical analyses expire. A separate cancellation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. In each newsletter you will find a link to unsubscribe. The cancellation can also be made via the newsletter profile on the website:

Passing on to third parties

Information may therefore also be provided by other companies, but only to the extent that this is necessary for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration or the other company acts as a service provider / contract processor bound by instructions.

We use service providers who process data on our behalf (e.g. support in processing customer inquiries). In the cases described here, the information is passed on to these third parties to enable further processing. External service providers are carefully selected and regularly reviewed by us to ensure that your privacy is protected.

The service providers are service providers / contract processors bound by instructions and are accordingly obliged by us, among other things, to treat your data exclusively in accordance with our instructions and the applicable data protection laws. In particular, you are obliged to treat your data strictly confidential and you are also prohibited from processing the data for purposes other than those agreed.

The transfer of data to contractors is based on Art. 28 para. 1 DSGVO.

We also do not sell your data to third parties, nor do we market it elsewhere.

In addition, your personal data will be forwarded without your express consent to the law enforcement authorities and, if necessary, to injured third parties if it is necessary to clarify an illegal use of our services or for legal prosecution. However, this only happens if there are concrete indications of illegal or abusive behaviour. A disclosure may also take place if this serves to enforce terms of use or other agreements. We are also legally obliged to provide information to certain public authorities upon request. These are law enforcement authorities, authorities that prosecute fined offences and the tax authorities.

The disclosure of this data is based on our legitimate interest in combating abuse, prosecuting criminal offences and securing, asserting and enforcing claims, provided that your rights and interests in the protection of your personal data do not outweigh Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Planned data transmission to third countries

A transfer to third countries is currently not planned, otherwise the corresponding legal requirements will be created. In particular, you will be informed about the respective recipients or categories of recipients in accordance with legal requirements.


Hungry Dolphin uses technical and organisational security measures to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. This also applies when external services are purchased. The effectiveness of our security measures is checked and the measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. When personal data is entered, it is always transmitted in encrypted form.

Performance/Statistics Cookies
These cookies collect information about how you use our website (e.g. Internet browser used, number of visits, pages accessed or the time spent on the website). These cookies do not store any information that allows a personal identification of the visitor. The information collected with the help of these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

You can explain your consent or rejection of cookies – also for web tracking – via the settings of your web browser. You can configure your browser to refuse the acceptance of cookies in principle or to inform you in advance if a cookie is stored. In this case, however, the functionality of the website may be impaired (e.g. with orders). Your browser also offers a function to delete cookies (e.g. via browser data delete). You can find further information on this in the operating instructions or, as a rule, under Settings of your Internet browser.

Anonymised website tracking

In order to better adapt this website to the needs of our customers, we analyze the visits to our website. We use your IP address, which we previously make anonymous (and possibly similar numbers that are exchanged between computers during normal Internet use) with the intention of analyzing data, including the pages you visit, your browser and your computer. Cookies are also set for this purpose. Our cookie contains only a unique number in order to recognize you on our websites, but not on the websites of third parties. The stored data is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes, in particular the IP address is not associated with a specific person. A passing on to third parties does not take place.

Website tracking

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). The use includes the “Universal Analytics” operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user’s activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 TMG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The data sent by us and linked with cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 6 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found at “” or “”.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing a tool at “”. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data across different devices, you must opt-out on all systems used. If you click here, the opt-out cookie will be set:

Disallow Google Analytics to track me


The web analysis remains deactivated as long as the cookie is not deactivated or deleted by Google Analytics. Therefore, please do not delete the cookie as long as the respective web analysis is not desired.

With modern browsers you can also use the browser settings or install browser applications that prevent website tracking.

Integration of plug-ins for social networks

Our website uses buttons for the social networks

facebook, Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
The button is marked with the social network logo. However, these are not the usual social plugins, but buttons with stored links. You can activate (click) the buttons müssen separately. As long as these buttons are not clicked, no data is transferred to the social networks. Only when you click on the buttons and thereby declare your consent to communication with the servers of the social network, the buttons become active and the connection is established.

After clicking the button corresponds to a so-called share plugin. The social network is provided with information about the page you visit, which you can share with your contacts on your social network. If you want to share the information, you must be logged in. If you are not logged in, you will be taken to the login page of the social network you clicked on and you will no longer be on the Hungry Dolphin pages. Once you are logged in, the information will be sent that you would like to recommend the respective article.

By activating the button, the social network then also receives information that and when you have called up the corresponding page of our Internet presence, as well as e.g. your IP address, information on the browser used and the language settings. When you click the button, your click is sent to the social network and used according to its data usage guidelines.

When activating the button we have no influence on the collected data and data processing processes and are not responsible for this data processing and in this respect also not responsible in the sense of the DSGVO. We are also not aware of the full extent of data collection, its legal basis, the purposes and the storage periods. Therefore, the information provided here is not necessarily complete.

The data is transferred regardless of whether you actually have an account with the provider or are logged in there. If you are logged in with the provider, your data will be assigned directly to your account. Providers may also use cookies on your computer to track you.

To our knowledge, the provider stores this data in user profiles which it uses for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of demand-fair advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our web site. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise this right of objection, please contact the respective provider.

The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the respective social network as well as your relevant rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the information provided.

If you do not want the social network to receive data about you, do not click the button.

Standard periods for the deletion of data

The legislator has enacted various retention periods and obligations. After expiry of these periods, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If data is not affected by this, it will be deleted or made anonymous when the purposes stated in this data protection declaration cease to apply. If this data protection declaration does not contain any other, deviating regulations regarding the storage of data, the data collected by us will be stored by us for as long as they are necessary for the above-mentioned purposes for which they were collected.


Other data uses and data deletion

Further processing or use of your personal data will generally only take place if permitted by law or if you have consented to data processing or use. In the event of further processing for purposes other than those for which the data were originally collected, we will inform you of these other purposes prior to further processing and provide you with further relevant information.

Misuse detection and prosecution

Information for the detection and prosecution of misuse, in particular your IP address, will be kept available for a maximum of 7 days. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest in the retention of data for 7 days is to ensure the proper functioning of our website and the transactions conducted over it, and to be able to ward off cyber attacks and the like. We may use anonymous usage information to design our website to meet your needs.
