Privacy policy

We hereby wish to inform you of the processing of your personal data within the context of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Law (DPL) and the Telecommunications Law (TL). Please contact us at any time should you need more information. Our contact details can be found at the end of this Privacy Policy.


1. Personal data

Personal data means all data containing information about personal or factual circumstances, such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, video recordings, photos, etc. Please notify us if changes are made to your personal data.

We will collect, process and use your personal data only where this is necessary for the performance of the contract or is required by a legal obligation or if you voluntarily provide us with such data. We will obtain your consent before any further processing of your data. Processing may also take place without your consent where our legitimate interest in data processing outweighs your interest in data protection. We will use the data provided to us in particular for the purposes of performing the contract, initiating the contract, meeting legal obligations, etc.

As a rule we will collect your data directly from you. In the context of the contract, however, it may happen that we will collect your data from third parties, such as bookings made via tour operators or booking platforms and similar.

We would furthermore state that the provision of personal data is to a certain extent required by law (e.g. tax law) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information about the contracting party). Failure to provide the personal data may mean that the contract cannot be concluded.


2. Your rights

Under the provisions of the GDPR you have the right to receive information on any of your personal data that we store, as well as a right to correction, data transmission, objection, limitation of processing and blocking or deletion of incorrect or unlawfully processed data. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time.

If you believe that our processing of your personal data violates the applicable data protection law, you may make a complaint to the competent supervisory authority. The Data Protection Authority is the competent body for Austria.


3. Data security

Your personal data will be protected by appropriate organisational and technical precautions. These precautions in particular relate to protection against unauthorised, unlawful or accidental access, loss, processing, use or manipulation of data.

Please note that we do not accept any liability whatsoever for the disclosure of information owing to errors in data transmission and/or unauthorised access by third parties for which we are not responsible.


4. Transmission of data to third parties

In order to perform our contractual or legal obligations, it may be necessary to transfer your data to data processors or to other recipients, in particular to public authorities. Data processors will process your personal information according to strict guidelines and only to the extent necessary to perform such tasks. As an example, our data processors are external IT service providers, etc.

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. our interest in the analysis, optimisation and business operation of our offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR)), our offering will include third-party content or service offers in order to integrate content and services.

This assumes that your IP address will be transmitted to such third-party providers because the content cannot be sent to your browser without the IP address. The IP address is required to display this content. Third-party providers may also use so-called web beacons for statistical or marketing purposes. Web beacons can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the website. For this purpose a cookie may also be set that will contain technical information about your browser and operating system, the referring websites, time spent visiting and other information regarding the use of our website. The following provides an overview of some of our third-party providers:

We will only transfer your data to other recipients if you have given us or the recipient your consent to the transmission of data, or if the transmission of data is required to execute or perform the contract, or if we are legally obliged to transmit the data.

We transmit your personal data to recipients within the European Union or to countries for which the European Commission has determined that there exists an appropriate level of data protection. If this is not the case we will ensure, on the basis of suitable guarantees, that the data recipient complies with the GDPR.

Personally identifiable data and information will be transmitted by Google Analytics, the Facebook Plugin, Google Remarketing, Facebook Custom Audiences, Google AdWords, Google Fonts and DoubleClick to their respective providers in the USA. Such personal information will be stored and processed in the United States of America. There is no equivalent level of privacy in the USA; however, the data recipients have agreed to comply with European data protection standards under the EU-US Privacy Shield, thus ensuring the protection of your data. Such data may be in certain circumstances be shared with third parties.


5. Retention of data

a.) Retention in order to perform contractual or legal obligations:
We will retain your data for as long as is necessary to perform our contractual or legal obligations. We are thus for example required to keep our accounting records for a period of 7 years from the end of the calendar year in question.

When storing your data we will ensure that such data is only used to the extent necessary for the above-mentioned purposes.


b.) Retention on the basis of your consent:
Subject to your consent, we will store your data for as long as this is specified in your statement of consent or other agreement, for example in the context of a contract made with you.


c.) Retention based on legitimate interests:
We will also store your data for as long as is necessary to defend liability or other claims within the statutory limitation period. Under Austrian law such period is in principle 3 years from the time when the damage and the author of the damage became known.

We will store booking inquiries that do not lead to the conclusion of a contract for the purpose of internal analyses (such as analysing our offer) for a period of 24 months.

We will save documents relating to job applications for a period of 12 months.


d.) Obligations to delete data on the basis of the right to deletion:
