Collection, processing, use and transfer of personal data

Generally speaking, you can use our website without telling us who you are. Our web servers automatically save information of a general nature. This includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us, the pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of your visit. This is only information that does not allow conclusions to be drawn about your person. We evaluate this data for statistical purposes only, and only in anonymized form.

Personal data allows conclusions to be drawn about a particular person, e.g. their name, email address or telephone number. We only collect and process personal data if you voluntarily provide us with such information. This is the case, for example, when you submit a query via the contact/reservation form. This data is stored for the purpose of processing your query as well as in the event that subsequent queries occur. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

By using our website and the offers contained therein, you agree to us storing the personal data voluntarily communicated by you and processing it and using it in accordance with this privacy notice.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, which are text files placed on your computer, to enable the analysis of how you use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will usually be transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States.

However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, then within EU Member States or in other member states of the European Economic Area Google will shorten your IP address before transmitting it. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of this website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services for the website operator relating to website usage and internet usage. Google will not associate your browser’s IP address transmitted for Google Analytics purposes with any other data held by Google.

Please be advised that we use Google Analytics with the extension ‘_anonymizep()’. Your IP addresses are thus shortened by the final octet, rendering personal data unrecognizable.

By using this website, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by using the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) and its processing by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

As an alternative to the browser add-on (or also for use on mobile devices), please click on this link to object to the collection of data by Google Analytics on this website in future. This will store an opt-out cookie on your device. As soon as you delete your cookies, you will need to click on the link again.
