Privacy Policy

Information Collected and Stored Automatically
By visiting our websites, certain information may be automatically provided to us by your computer. For each visitor to our websites, our webservers automatically recognize the visitor’s domain name or IP address. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. As part of the protocol of the Internet, webservers can identify your computer by its IP address. In addition, we may collect your browser type and operating system as well as your internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, date and time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We collect similar information when visiting our websites with your mobile device, including mobile device brand, model, mobile operation system and carrier. Except as otherwise explained in this policy, we may combine the non-personal information we collect from you (as described above and as described below, under “Cookies & Pixel Tracking”) with your personal information in order to tailor our websites and enhance your online experience by saving your preferences and/or to help identify site features, advertisements and offers that may be of interest to you.
Online Tracking
When we use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet, these companies employ cookie and pixel tag technology on this and other websites in order to help select the ads that are displayed to you. For example, it helps ensure you do not see the same advertisements repeatedly and to display advertisements more specific to your interests. For these efforts we comply with the Digital Advertising Alliance industry standards for Canada and the U.S . For more information on your Ad Choices please visit one of the links below. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services outside our site, and who may use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to serve and offer relevant ads.
Some newer web browsers incorporate “Do Not Track” features. At this time, our websites may not respond to “Do Not Track” requests or headers from these browsers. To learn more about your choices about not having this information used by certain service providers, in the US please click here, in Canada please click here, or for European residents, please click here. (Please note: opting out of this practice does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.)
Cookies & Pixel Tracking
Sixt and our partners use cookies, pixel tags, etags, HTML 5 storage and similar technologies that enable, among other things, the tracking of your actions as a user of various websites or recipient of e-mail messages. “Pixel Tags” may be used. Pixel Tags may be used in connection with our web pages, our online advertising, or our e-mail messages, either by Sixt or by our service providers, business partners or other third parties. Pixel Tags are used to collect typically anonymous data to help identify types of information, including popular destinations, average rental prices, quote and conversion rates, click-throughs and other information to improve the service you receive or the relevance of advertising directed to you. Pixel Tags may also be used to identify which online advertisement or email has brought you to a website. Further, certain Pixel Tags may be used by other companies for the purpose of tracking visits to their websites, identifying if such internet traffic came from a Sixt website or confirming your eligibility to receive services or benefits from such other companies.
Third party cookies or Pixel Tags may collect information about a user of our site’s online activities over time and across different web sites. Some of our web sites may use Google Analytics, which uses cookies and other, similar technologies (e.g. Pixel Tags) to collect information about website use anonymously and reports trends, without identifying individual visitors. To learn more about Google Analytics, including how to opt out of it, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve advertisements regarding goods and services that may be of interest to you when you access and use our websites and other websites, based on information relating to your access to and use of our websites and other websites. To do so, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser (including through the use of Pixel Tags). If you would like to learn more about this practice, including your choices with respect to it, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp and http://www.aboutads.info/ or https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/disable-third-party-cookies
We do not respond to a web browser’s “do not track” signal, or other mechanism that indicates a request to disable online tracking of individuals who use or visit our websites. As the internet and other eCommerce channels continue to develop, we may deploy and utilize different types of technologies to collect data regarding your visit or usage.

Terms For Facebook Conversion Tracking, Custom Audiences From our Website, and Custom Audiences From our Mobile App
Sixt works with certain features and tools provided by Facebook (e.g., pixels, SDKs and APIs) that is added to the Sixt website to allow us to send data about actions that people take on our website (“Event Data”) to Facebook to track conversions (“Conversion Tracking”), to create custom audiences of people who have visited your website (“Custom Audiences from your Website”). By using our website, you agree to the following:

Event Data will also enable Facebook to better target ads and to optimize their systems. In connection with such targeting and optimization, Facebook will: (i) use Event Data collected from our website for ads optimization only after such Event Data has been aggregated with other data collected from other advertisers or otherwise collected on Facebook and (ii) not allow other advertisers or third parties to target advertising solely on the basis of Event Data collected from our website.
B. Event Data will not be disclosed to other advertisers or to third parties, unless Facebook has our permission or is required to do so by law. Facebook will maintain the confidentiality and security of Event Data, including by maintaining technical and physical safeguards that are designed to (a) protect the security and integrity of data while it is within Facebook's systems and (b) guard against the accidental or unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure of data within Facebook's systems.

D. Sixt does not transfer or disclose any personally identifiable information to Facebook or combine any information obtained in connection with these terms with personally identifiable information. Sixt will not share with Facebook information that we know or reasonably should know is from or about children under the age of 13 or that includes health, financial, or other categories of sensitive information.
E. Sixt is aware that Facebook may include notice in or around our advertisements explaining that the ad is targeted, and will not modify, obscure, or otherwise interfere with these notices, including any technical components that enable users to access additional information or choice mechanisms.
Children's Privacy
Our Websites are not directed to children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, then please stop using our websites or our products and services and do not provide us with PII of any kind whatsoever.
It is our policy not to knowingly solicit children under the age of 13 for PII or otherwise contact children for any purpose. Further, it is Sixt's policy to not knowingly allow children under the age of 13 to use our websites or our products and services. We encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in monitoring their children's use of the internet. It is possible that by fraud or deception, we may receive the PII of children under the age of 13. If we are notified or otherwise become aware of this, we will immediately delete the PII from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of PII by children under the age of 13, please contact our privacy officer at InvestorRelations(at)sixt.com
Some links on our Websites may possibly lead to the websites of third-parties that are directed to children. Sixt does not control these third parties and is not responsible for the actions of our third party business partners. We encourage you to check their terms of use and privacy policies for such information that address children's privacy.
Your California Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, you may have the right to request and receive certain information about our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and your choices with respect to such disclosures. However, our policy is not to share your personal information with third parties unless you first opt-in to such disclosure or are first given the opportunity to opt-out. This practice is disclosed in the preceding sections of this Privacy Policy. If you still wish to learn more about our compliance with this requirement, you may contact us using the contact information provided below. InvestorRelations(at)sixt.com
How We Protect the Security of Personally Identifiable Information
The security of your PII is important to us. We exercise reasonable care in implementing generally accepted standards of security to protect your PII from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for some of your more sensitive PII. It is our policy to retain PII for only as long as we believe appropriate for the purposes for which the PII was collected or as required by applicable law. Unfortunately, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet, and no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we take reasonable efforts to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee that PII stored on our servers, or transmitted to or from a user, will be free from unauthorized access. By using our websites and corresponding with us, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks. In the event of the unauthorized use of your information as it pertains to Sixt, you agree to immediately notify us. We will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision. It is our policy that we will never request your sensitive PII, such as your credit card number, passcode, membership number or pin number, in an e-mail, text or on a website that is not located at the domain name used by Sixt or an affiliate. If you receive an e-mail or other correspondence requesting that you provide any such information via e-mail or to a website that is not on such domain name, please do not provide such information, and report such request to our privacy officer at InvestorRelations(at)sixt.com.
In the unlikely event that we have reason to believe that the security of your PII in our possession or control may have been compromised, we will notify you consistent with the applicable laws and regulations. If a notification is appropriate, we will do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances. If we have your current e-mail address on file, we may notify you by e-mail.
