The following pages will tell you what kind of data we collect and how we use it.

 

Personal Data

The BDSG defines personal data as single pieces of information regarding personal or material circumstances from which the identity of a certain person may be inferred. We only store personal data insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of booked services, for compliance with legal regulations or for the below-stated purpose.

Anonymised Data

You may visit our website without necessitating any collection of personal data. Still, during each visit to our website, we collect certain anonymised data, for instance the pages or offers you accessed. This data however is not personalised and therefore the BDSG’s legal regulations do not apply. We merely collect this data for statistical analysis, so as to improve our services. Please note the paragraph titled “Freedom of Information / Right to Withdrawal”.

Purpose of Personal Data Collection

Collection of personal data becomes indispensable when you use our platform to book a stay or another service, when you make contact with us, subscribe to our newsletter or wish to avail of other services offered on our website which can only be delivered with the help of personal data. This includes voucher purchases and participation in sweepstakes.

In accordance with relevant legal regulations and for the purpose of data economy, we generally only collect the kind of data which is necessary for the delivery of any one specific service. Should any of our forms request further information, its disclosure is always voluntary and marked as such.

When you book a stay or some other service, data collected for this booking is used to process the booking, for advertising purposes in accordance with legal regulations and for statistical purposes.

Once you subscribe to our newsletter, we store and use data you provide during a booking regarding your person so as to be able to deliver optimal newsletter services.

We furthermore use stored personal data for the purpose of nurturing our client relationships, to keep clients informed, for the execution of our own advertising and marketing measures (e.g. mailing out brochures and other advertising materials) and for the successful delivery of booked services.

We exclusively disclose your personal data in keeping with applicable legal regulations, specifically in compliance with competition and data protection laws.

Moreover, we disclose data to individuals or companies entrusted with the delivery of your booking.

To the extent permitted by law, we furthermore disclose your data to our chosen partners, who may then send you interesting offers.
