Privacy Policy

1. Personal Data

Personal data within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) are all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person. Personal data will only be stored if this is necessary to provide the requested service, to comply with legal requirements or for the purpose stated below.

2. Anonymised Data / Log Files / IP Address

You can visit our website without having to collect any personal data. During each visit to our website, however, certain anonymous data is stored, e.g. which page or which offer was called up. However, these data are not personal and are therefore not subject to the legal regulations of the GDPR.

The website operator or page provider collects data about access to the page and saves it as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way: 

Visited website, time of access, amount of data sent in bytes, source/reference from which you accessed the site, browser used, operating system used, IP address used. 

The data collected is used solely for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

Anonymous data is collected solely for statistical evaluation in order to improve our services. Please refer to "Right of information / Right of revocation".

3. Purpose of the Collection of Personal Data

However, the collection of personal data becomes indispensable when you call up a service, inquiry or other service via our online presence, contact us, subscribe to our newsletter or use further offers on our site for the processing of which personal data are indispensable. This includes in particular the administration of your data in a personal customer area with login function, voucher purchases, participation in competitions or changes to existing inquiries or orders.

In accordance with the legal regulations, as a rule only those data are collected which are required for the provision of the service or service requested by you. As far as we ask in our forms for the indication of further information, the indication is always voluntary and marked as such. 

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. Furthermore, the data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR also lies in these purposes. 

The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Section 7 para. 3 UWG. 

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we also store and use, on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, the personal data you provide when booking or registering and your orders and travel services in order to provide you with the best possible service as a newsletter subscriber.

The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. 

We also use the personal data stored by us to maintain customer relations, for customer care (e.g. information on the course of your stay), to carry out our own advertising and marketing measures (e.g. the dispatch of catalogues of other advertising mailings within the legally permissible framework, queries on customer satisfaction) and for order processing. 

4. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. 

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. 

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing. 

5. Passing on of Personal Data to Third Parties

Your personal data will only be passed on within the relevant provisions of data protection and competition law in particular. 

As far as this is necessary for the provision of the contractual service or legal obligations owed by us, your data will also be passed on to subcontractors or service providers for the provision of the service on our behalf or on our behalf (e.g. technical processing of postal and e-mail dispatch, payment processing, customer service). 

Your data will also be disclosed and transmitted to third parties if we are obliged to do so by law or as a result of legally binding court proceedings.
