Our online services use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files, which are stored on your computer and facilitate an analysis of your usage of the website. The data generated by the cookie relating to your use of this website (including your IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. Google uses this data on behalf of the website operator to evaluate usage of the website, to produce reports on website activity for the website operator, and to perform further services connected to website usage and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required by law or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other Google data.. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software appropriately; please note however that, in this case, you will not be able to make full use of the functionality of our website. By using this website, you agree that the data relating to you which has been collected may be processed by Google in the aforementioned manner and for the aforementioned purpose.
For newsletter subscribers: Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter can click on the "Unsubscribe" link which is included in all of our newsletter e-mails.
You have the right
to request confirmation regarding whether personal data relating to you is being processed, and subsequently the right to receive information concerning the personal data relating to you which has been stored, and a copy of this information, free of charge;
to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data, without affecting the legality of the processing which has taken place on the basis of the consent until its withdrawal;
to request the correction of incorrect personal data relating to you or to request that your data is in any case immediately deleted, in so far as we no longer have any legal reason to preserve the data affected;
to request the restriction of processing;
to receive the personal data which you have provided in a structured, accessible and machine-readable format and to transmit these data to another responsible person (without impediment by us);
to cause your data to be transmitted directly by us to another responsible person, in so far as this is technically feasible and in so far as the rights and freedoms of other persons are not thereby impaired;
to have the possibility of lodging a complaint with the Austrian data protection authorities in the event of unlawful conduct by us.
Appropriate organisational, technical and physical security measures are adopted to protect your data from unauthorised access and usage. We only store your data for as long as required for the performance of our services and for legitimate operational reasons (principle of data minimisation), unless we are obliged to store these for a longer period of time due to legislation or regulations, or due to legal proceedings or inquiries by the authorities.
Both at the time of establishing the means of processing and at the time of actually processing your personal data, we are committed to taking suitable technical and organisational measures – such as tokenisation, for example – which are designed to implement data protection effectively and which incorporate the necessary guarantees into the processing to satisfy the requirements of data protection legislation and to protect your data.
For this purpose, we take suitable measures to ensure that, via default settings, in principle only that personal data is processed that is necessary for the respective specific processing purpose, and we thereby ensure above all that, due to default settings, your data is not made accessible to an unspecified number of natural persons without your intervention. These measures include, amongst other things, the pseudonymisation and encryption of your data, and also the capability to permanently ensure the confidentiality, integrity, availability and capacity of the systems and services in connection with the processing, the capability to rapidly restore the availability of the personal data and access to them in the case of a physical or technical incident, and the regular review, assessment and evaluation of the effectiveness of the technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of the processing.
All booking forms via which you transmit personal information to us use an encrypted transmission method (SSL) to secure your data. You will know if you are on a secure page, because the address line (the URL) will start with "https://" instead of the usual "http://", and because special symbols will be displayed in the browser status bar (usually at the bottom edge of the window): Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari
Encryption takes place between the server and the client (that is, your computer) in the form of a secure connection via which any data may be transferred.
Certificates guaranteeing the security of the transfer are required for SSL so that one can be certain where the server is located and who is operating this server.
SSL certificate authority: Our secure servers have been certified by the Comodo Group.
If you have any questions or complaints relating to our processing of your data, please contact us at:
