Purposes and legal basis of the data processing

When registering for our WiFi service, the following data is stored on the server to ensure the technical, operational readiness and security of the WLAN service.

  • IP address of the user's end device connection 
  • MAC address of the user's end device

Data processing is in our legitimate interest and is performed exclusively for operational, security-related and statistical purposes. The legal basis for the data processing is Article 6(1)(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

It is not possible to personalise IP or MAC addresses for the FBB in the absence of registration information. There will be no evaluation of personal data (e.g. user profiling). 

The stored data will be erased after 10 days insofar as there are no security-related incidences or necessary action is required for the purpose of eliminating any faults.

Use of cookies

Cookies are used when using the Free Airport WiFi. Cookies are text files stored in the memory of the end device. Cookies will not become part of your system. They serve to recognise the internet browser. The majority of browsers are set to accept cookies automatically.

Cookies serve to enable and make it easy for you to use our service, thus ensuring the usability of the web page and collecting statistical information on the use of our service.

The legal basis for the use of cookies is our legitimate interest in the optimisation and improvement as well as the functional reliability of our WiFi services, in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, and your consent, in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) GDPR, to the use of cookies for advertising and website use statistics.

Should you not wish to allow the use of cookies, you can set your browser so that it deletes cookies from your hard drive after ending your internet use, blocks the storage of cookies or informs you of the receipt of a cookie before a cookie is stored. If you reject the storage of cookies or deactivate this in your browser, we cannot ensure that you will be able to use all of our services without restrictions.

Google Analytics

This app uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files, which are stored on your computer and allow your use of this website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie (including your IP address) on your use of this website, the date and duration of use as well as browser and your end device's operating system are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this website, compile reports on the activities for the landing page operator and provide other services related to the use of this landing page. Google will also, if applicable, transfer this information to third parties, if this is stipulated by law or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will, under no circumstances, link your IP address to other data from Google. For more detailed information, please refer to the Google Analytics data privacy notices: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

However, we would like to inform you that in this case, if applicable, you will not be able to make full use of all of the functions on this website. When using Google Analytics, Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH implements the anonymisation of IP addresses by using the Google "anonymizeIP" code. Your IP address is therefore only recorded by Google in an abbreviated form within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. By using this website, you hereby declare that you agree to the processing of the data collected by Google about you in the manner previously described and for the aforementioned purpose.

When exercising your objection, we request that you provide the reasons why we should not process your personal data further.
