DATA PRIVACY GUIDELINES
Thank you for visiting our website. The protection of your personally identifiable data is important to us and we wish to inform you below how we handle that data.
Contact with us
When you get in contact with us either by using the form on our website or sending us an email, we will store the data you have provided for a period of six months in order to process your request and respond to any potential follow-up questions you may have. This data will not be shared with third parties without your permission.
Collection and processing of personally identifiable data
Personally identifiable data comprises details pertaining to the person or circumstances of a specified or specifiable natural person. This may include your correct name, address, telephone number, email address and date of birth.
When you visit our website, our standard practice is to store connection data pertaining to the requesting device, which of our webpages were visited, date of the visit, the type of browser and operating system used, as well as the website which immediately preceded your visit to ours. This information is primarily evaluated for statistical purposes, with the individual user remaining anonymous. Person-specific information is not compiled, other than if this information is provided by you voluntarily, e.g. in order to register, to enter into a contract or to request information.
Usage and transmission of personally identifiable data
By submitting a request or booking, the user expresses their consent to the partially automated processing of their personally identifiable data (name, date of birth, postal address, email address, telephone number). In doing so, the user gives expressed permission for the aforementioned data to be processed for control purposes, to fulfill a contract, as well as for purposes of customer service and to provide the customer with relevant information. The personally identifiable data will only be stored as long as necessary for the aforementioned purposes. Deletion of the processed data may be requested at any time pursuant to the contract having been fulfilled.
The customer is fully aware of, and expresses their consent to the processing of the personally identifiable data about themselves as well as any relevant data pertaining to their fellow travelers.
Your personally identifiable data will not be shared with third parties, other than if this is necessary for the purposes of processing your contract or if you have given us your expressed permission to do so. For example, we are required to provide your personally identifiable data to the local government as well as other public authorities.
The processing of your personally identifiable data as well as your accommodation at our business represents a direct exchange of goods and services. We wish to point out that, should you decide to revoke the consent you have given, we will no longer be able to provide the service that was originally requested.
Deletion and Blocking of Data
We adhere to principles of data avoidance and data economy. That said, we only store your personally identifiable data for as long as necessary in order to attain the purposes as described here, as well as to comply completely with statutory retention requirements. If the original purpose has been voided or a specific deadline reached, our standard practice is to delete pertinent data in accordance with legal provisions.
