Extent of data collection and data processing
Your personal data
In order to clearly identify you as a Miles & More member and communicate with you as described above, we need a few items of personal data from you. This data is requested when you enrol and consists of your last name, first name, gender, address, date of birth, e-mail address and phone number. In addition, you may also disclose further information on a voluntary basis, for example, a mobile phone number, your preferred correspondence language, your preferred seat and any special menu requirements. You may also agree when you enrol to receive information and the latest offers from Lufthansa, its co-publishers and Miles & More partner companies by e-mail. You can withdraw this consent at any time online, at the Miles & More Service Centre or by contacting the Group Data Protection Officer of Deutsche Lufthansa AG directly. You can also veto the use of your postal address for advertising purposes there.
Every time you accrue miles within the Miles & More program the so-called program data is registered and recorded with Lufthansa. The program data is required for the management of your personal Miles & More account as well as the personalized correspondence mentioned above. When accruing miles, the program data contains all information needed to properly designate the mileage credit, such as e.g. flight segment, flight date, flight number, operating carrier and booking class. When redeeming an award, all relevant booking data is registered, e.g. flight segment and flight date in the case of a flight award, etc.. By recording the data it is possible to guarantee proper tracking of all account movements, detailed responses to inquiries and efficient handling of possible complaints.
Joint operators, partners
The operator of the Miles & More programme is Deutsche Lufthansa AG. In certain countries,
- Adria Airways
- Air Dolomiti
- Austrian Airlines
- Brussels Airlines
- Croatia Airlines
- LOT Polish Airlines
- Swiss International Air Lines
are co-publishers of the programme.
If your place of residence is in the home market of a joint operator your personal data will be transmitted to the according partner. The same applies to flights with the corresponding airline. In line with your consent, this data may be analyzed and used by a joint operator of the program for the purposes mentioned above.
The Deutsche Lufthansa AG shall only exchange data with other Miles & More partner companies if necessary for the crediting of miles in partner systems.
As a basic principle, non-airline partner companies (e.g. car rental companies, hotels) do not receive any data from the Miles & More program. However, Lufthansa may provide address data for advertising promotions provided that you have not objected this usage. The promotions are handled via service providers (mailing houses) so that no data is transmitted to the partner companies themselves.
Miles & More Credit Card
If you apply for a Miles & More Credit Card, the card issuer (e.g. in Germany this is Deutsche Kreditbank AG) will require some personal data such as your occupation, marital status, income etc. This data will not be passed on to Lufthansa or to any of the co-publishers.
