II. The rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right

- to correct or complete incorrect or incomplete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);

In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom it discloses data of any such corrections, deletions, or restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR.

Server data

For technical reasons, the following data sent by your internet browser to us or to our server provider will be collected, especially to ensure a secure and stable website: These server log files record the type and version of your browser, operating system, the website from which you came (referrer URL), the webpages on our site visited, the date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address from which you visited our site.

The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in association with any other of your data.

The basis for this storage is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality, and security of our website.

The data will be deleted within no more than seven days, unless continued storage is required for evidentiary purposes. In which case, all or part of the data will be excluded from deletion until the investigation of the relevant incident is finally resolved.

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure, allowing us, for example, to display our website in different languages or to offer a shopping cart function.

The legal basis for such processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as these cookies are used to collect data to initiate or process contractual relationships.

Data processing when using PMS systems (widgets)

Widgets of the company zadego GmbH (easybooking) may be implemented on these pages.
zadego GmbH
Anton-Melzer Straße 10
6020 Innsbruck

The provider is a PMS system, which represents the provider of the hotel software of the responsible person. Depending on the tourism business, the widgets can be the following:

  • Enquiry form
  • Booking engine
  • Small Search (enquiry, booking)
  • Category View
  • Room view
  • Packages Widget
  • Price overview
  • Price comparison
  • Availability calendar
  • Online Check-In

a. General information

In order to process your enquiry or booking, it is necessary that the data provided by you to the responsible person is processed.
The above-mentioned person in charge and zadego GmbH (both jointly also referred to as "provider") have a contractually regulated business relationship. The person responsible obtains his hotel administration or booking software from zadego GmbH.
The personal data provided by you will be transferred to the administration system and to companies in business relations with the administration system. This transfer takes place in particular to the aforementioned landlords, possibly also to tourism associations, registration providers, payment providers and other companies that are linked to the administration system and/or landlord and must be consulted for the fulfilment of postcontractual obligations. The use of personal data by the providers is governed by the applicable statutory provisions and the consent given by you to the use of your data.

b. Collection of data

Within the framework of an enquiry or booking with the tourism company, you provide relevant data for the execution of the same. As a rule, this involves the following:
  • First name and surname
  • E-mail address
  • Address
  • Telephone
  • Payment data (bank details, credit card details)
  • birth data (for the identification of children)
This data is only collected to the extent permitted by law and only with your consent and active participation. As far as the consent is declared electronically within the scope of the services, the legal obligations to provide information are taken into account and this consent is recorded by suitable technical systems.

c. Purpose of this data processing

The person responsible will process your personal data in this context for the following purposes:
  • Offering
  • Online Check-In
  • Fulfilment of reporting obligations
  • Payment processing
  • Accounting
If you enter personal data (contact data, e-mail, data of the desired stay in our house) in one of these widgets, this is always done on a voluntary basis and only for the purpose of being able to make an appropriate offer for your desired stay.
If there is no contractual relationship between the parties (i.e. there is no stay in the business of the responsible person), the data of the person concerned will be deleted automatically from the systems immediately. In individual cases, legal storage and deletion periods must be observed.
