The nature of these explanations unfortunately involves very technical jargon; however, we have tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.
Automatic data storage
Currently, when you visit a website certain information is automatically generated and stored, including on this website.
From now on, when you visit our website our web server (a computer on which this website is saved) automatically stores data such as your device’s IP address, the addresses of sub-sites visited, details about your browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Edge…) and the date and time. We do not use this data, nor do we usually pass it on; however, we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be visible to non-authorised third parties.
Storing personal data
Personal data that you provide to us electronically on this website such as your name, address, email address, or other personal details in connection with submitting a form or comments on the blog, along with the time and your IP address are only used for their intended purpose, are securely stored and are not passed on to third parties.
We only use your personal data in order to communicate with visitors who have expressly consented to us contacting them and in order to enhance the services and products offered on this website. We do not pass on your personal data without your consent; however, we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be visible to non-authorised third parties.
If you send personal data via email, or otherwise outside the scope of this website, we cannot guarantee the secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential information that is not encrypted via email.
Your rights exist regarding accommodation, amendments, cancellation, reservations, data transmission, withdrawal and objections. If you believe that your privacy has been breached as part of data processing or your data protection rights have been infringed in any way, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with the regulatory authority. This is the regulatory authority in Austria, whose website can be reached at https://www.dsb.gv.at/.
TLS encryption with https
We use https in order to securely transmit data on the internet by using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for securely transmitting data on the internet; we can guarantee the protection of your confidential data. You can recognise this by means of the small lock symbol on the top left of your browser and by the use of https in our internet address.
Our website uses HTTP cookies for storing user-specific data.
A cookie is a small data package, which is exchanged between the web browser and web server and is meaningless until it is used for a web application such as an online shop and the content of your virtual shopping basket.
There are two types of cookies: First-party cookies are created by our website, third-party cookies are created by other websites (e.g. Google Analytics).
You can separate cookies into three categories: essential cookies for ensuring the basic functionality of a website, functional cookies for guaranteeing the performance of a website and target-oriented cookies for improving user experience.
If you do not wish these cookies to be stored, you can adjust the settings on your browser to allow cookies for individual visits only.
You can delete or deactivate the cookies stored on your computer at any time. This process varies depending on your browser and you are best searching on Google for “delete chrome cookies” or “deactivate chrome cookies” if you have a Chrome browser, or replace the word “chrome” with the name of your browser, e.g. edge, firefox, safari.
