Confidential data handled responsibly
Personal data (such as name, e-mail address, telephone number) are processed and conveyed by the operator only in a lawful manner - in particular for the fulfillment of contractual or legal obligations, on the basis of predominant legitimate interests of the operator or on the basis of the consent of the user.
The lawfulness of data processing results from the Austrian Data Protection Act as well as from the regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR). The legal basis is specifically detailed in the following processing.
The operator continuously optimises the presentation and services offered for the website users. In order to better understand how the pages are used, the operator saves the following data, short term, each time the site is accessed: name of the website visited, requested details, date/time, volume of data transmitted, message about successful retrieval of data, browser/version/language, operating system, previously visited sites, duration of use, country of origin and anonymised IP-address. By visiting this website, the user, in accordance to Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR, gives his/her consent to the short term storage of the IP address of the terminal. The user's IP-address will be deleted when use of the website is complete. The operator uses the aforementioned data anonymously only for statistical purposes in connection with the offer.
On making contact with the operator (eg. by contact formula or e-mail), the following user's information may be stored for the purpose of processing the request, as well as, in the case of follow-up questions: title, first name and surname, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number and additional inquiry-related information (eg. duration of stay, number of persons).
Personal data collected in this manner will be deleted by the operator within three years, after processing of the request has been completed. The personal data disclosed by the user will only be processed and used by the operator to the extent necessary in fulfilling the request and /or for the provision of the requested service.
In the course of this data processing, the operator may forward the collected personal data to the following third parties.
Use of the website is also possible without cookies. The user can deactivate the storage of cookies in his browser, limit cookies to certain websites or set his browser to send a notification before a cookie is stored. The user can delete cookies, at any stage, from the device's hard disk using the browser's privacy functions. In this case, the website's functions and user-friendliness could be restricted. The user's consent forms the legal basis of data processing, in the context of cookies, via the cookie banner.
What is OpenStreetMap?
The OpenStreetMap project was launched in 2004. The goal of the project is and was to create a free map of the world. Users collect data worldwide about buildings, forests, rivers and roads. Over the years, an extensive digital world map has been created by users themselves. Of course, the map is not complete, but in most regions it contains a lot of data.
Why do we use OpenStreetMap on our website?
First and foremost, our website should be helpful to you. And from our point of view, it is always helpful if you can find information quickly and easily. On the one hand, this is of course about our services and products, but on the other hand, we also want you to have access to other helpful information. That's why we also use the OpenStreetMap map service. Because this way we can show you, for example, exactly how to ﬁnd our company. The map shows you the best way to us and your journey becomes a breeze.
What data is stored by OpenStreetMap?
The collected data is subsequently accessible to the corresponding working groups of the OpenStreetMap Foundation. According to the company, personal data is not shared with other individuals or companies unless legally necessary. The third-party provider Pika does store your IP address, but in a truncated form.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
You have the right to access your personal data at any time and object to its use and processing. You can manage, delete or deactivate cookies that may be set by OpenStreetMap in your browser at any time. However, this will prevent the service from working to its full extent.

According to Art, 6 para, 1 lit, a DSGVO (consent), this consent constitutes the legal basis for the processing of personal data as it may occur during the collection by OpenStreetMap.
From our side, there is also a legitimate interest to use OpenStreetMap to optimize our online service. The corresponding legal basis for this is Art, 6 para, 1 lit, f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests). Nevertheless, we only use OpenStreetMap if you have given your consent.
To improve our products, automated data processing techniques are used to analyse user behaviour (ie. profiling).
The operator, according to Article 107 (3) of the Telecommunications Act 2003 (TKG 2003) and Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR, reserves the right to save the following data permanently and for sending offers and information on services and offers provided by the operator by mail or e-mail, for the purposes of their own advertising purposes: title, first name, surname, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number.
