what information we store
how we handle this data
what alternative uses our site visitors have
what happens in the background during a page visit on this website
Note on the chosen wording:
Our website is continuously being developed and adapted to the needs of our site visitors. Programming modules that are not currently used on this website may also be used in the future.
It is possible that functions, products, modules, plug-ins and services from third-party providers are already in use on this website or will only be used at a later date.
As a preventive measure, they are already included in this privacy statement, regardless of whether these functions are already activated or not (in case they are activated at a later date).
This website can be used without providing personal data.
If site visitors decide to provide us with personal data, then this data and how it is handled are subject to the strict provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the data protection laws of the Republic of Austria.
If site visitors provide us with personal data via this website, this is done on a voluntary basis by the site visitors.
Data security on the internet
The website is protected by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. Despite regular checks, complete protection against all hazards is not possible.
Please note that the World Wide Web is a publicly accessible system. Any time personal information is voluntarily disclosed online, you do so at your own risk. Your data can be lost along the way or fall into the hands of unauthorized persons.
Collection and processing of data
Every access to this website and every retrieval of a file stored on the homepage are logged. The storage serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following are logged: Name of the file accessed, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, web browser, requesting domain, IP addresses of the requesting computer and other data in connection with the online statistics tool “Google Analytics”.

Server data (server log files):
For technical reasons, our web hosting provider collects data about access to this website and saves it as server log files. We have no influence on the collection of this data.
The web servers generate temporary protocols/log files which contain the following information:
IP address/host name of the accessing computer,
date and time of access,
Browser type and browser version used by the user,
Operating system used by the user,
Referrer URL (host name and IP address of the accessing computer, reference to the user’s country of origin)
amount of data transferred in bytes;
This data is only used for statistical evaluation and to optimize our website and is automatically deleted by the provider on a regular basis.
The data collected does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person.
We reserve the right to check the server log files if concrete indications of illegal use are identified.
Data transfer and data security:
Note: This website is not encrypted. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible for us.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed).
Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
When communicating by e-mail, we cannot guarantee complete data security, so we recommend that you send confidential messages by post.
We recommend that you never send confidential data unencrypted by e-mail.
We make every effort to save your personal data by using all the technical and organizational options available to us in such a way that they are inaccessible to third parties.
Therefore, the data is stored in an environment that is secure through technical measures or on external data carriers. Only a few authorized persons can handle your data.
Data protection declaration regarding your personal data
We only use data that you have given us personally and voluntarily.
In addition to an e-mail address, we also provide an online form for contacting you or sending an inquiry (e.g. booking enquiry).
With this application, personal data is stored for the purpose of processing the request or in the event that queries arise.
These only fulfill the purpose of exchanging information, correspondence or transmission of relevant agreements, as they could also be transmitted orally, by telephone or in other written form (fax, letter, etc.).
We do not store data that does not serve this purpose. Any misuse or improper use is excluded.
We will only send you the information that you have requested from us or if you have registered for relevant services such as a newsletter.
Of course, we do not pass on your data to third parties and handle it discreetly/carefully.
Excluded from this is the transfer due to mandatory legal regulations to authorities and state institutions, insofar as we are legally obliged to do so.
The data will only be used for the purposes of service provision and administration.
Personal data is passed on to the municipal office of St. Kanzian am Klopeiner See, Klopeiner Straße 5, 9122 St.Kanzian as part of the tourist tax.
The duration of storage is based on the duration of our business relationship, the consent you have given, and the statutory retention requirements and legal obligations that apply to us.
The duration of storage is based on the duration of a business relationship, the consent you have given, and the statutory retention requirements and legal obligations that apply to us.

Our service providers are contractually obliged to process data only as instructed and to comply with all data protection regulations.
We delete your data when we no longer need it or when you wish and there are no legal reasons to keep it.

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent that you have already given at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Technical definitions and explanations
There are practically no websites that do not work with so-called cookies – this website also uses such cookies. They do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses, but serve to make websites as user-friendly as possible. Also, no personal user data can be “spied on”, no harmful program code is included.
First-party cookies are generated by our own website, third-party cookies are generated by other websites (e.g. Google Analytics).
There are three categories of cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies to ensure basic functions of the website
functional cookies to ensure the performance of the website
Targeting cookies to improve user experience.
These are small text files that are stored on your end device with the help of the browser. This can be the case, for example, when you visit an international website, where you select “German” as the default language instead of “English” the first time.
If you visit again some time later, you will be recognized as a “German”-speaking visitor and it is also possible that the search terms you used last or the pages you last visited will be found again immediately. So cookies can be very helpful.
Some cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them.
If you do not want this, you can also set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases or completely prevent it.
However, the functionality of a website may be restricted if cookies are deactivated.
We mostly use so-called session cookies (session ID), which are deleted immediately after the browser is closed.
In addition, third-party cookies such as Google, Google+, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube etc. may be used.
Integration of services and content by third parties
Our website is continuously being developed and adapted to the needs of our site visitors. Accordingly, modules may also be used in the future that have not yet been included in this data protection declaration as of today.
To avoid any omissions, here are the most common third-party products, modules, plug-ins, and services that we are likely to use, but do not necessarily have installed and enabled.
It is similar to a package insert: Side effects may occur but are unlikely to be expected.
These are often, for example, videos on YouTube, map material from Google Maps or page content (content) from external websites, which are integrated into our websites using i-frames after the relevant approval has been obtained (e.g. live webcam images, etc.).
Third- party providers must record the IP address of the site visitor, because without this IP address the content could not be displayed by the browser of the respective user.
It’s like sending parcels: without an address, parcels cannot be delivered.
The collection of the IP address is therefore necessary for the delivery of these data packages or content.
We endeavor to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party providers use these IP addresses, e.g. B. save for statistical purposes.
We have no influence on the functionality and data security of these third-party products and we expressly point out that their behavior is not our responsibility.
Should we become aware of malfunctions, undesirable reactions or questionable events through the use of these modules, we will immediately deactivate them, remove them, replace them with alternative modules or refrain from using them altogether.
It is possible that the maps from Google Maps from Google Inc., based at 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, (USA), are already embedded or linked on this website or will be used in the future.
Each time the Google Maps component is called up, Google sets a cookie in order to process user settings and data when the page on which the “Google Maps” component is integrated is displayed. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted by closing the browser, but expires after a certain period of time, unless you delete it manually beforehand.
It is possible that the functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics are already being used on this website or that they will be used in the future.
When you visit our website, your page visit can be statistically evaluated. This is mainly done with cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis is usually anonymous and cannot be traced back to you.
You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You will find detailed information on this in the following data protection declaration.
The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses target-oriented cookies.
The information generated by cookies when you visit this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
If IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can find more information on how Google Analytics handles user data in the Google data protection declaration: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de
Prevent data collection – with browser plugin
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we would like to point out to you however that in this case you will if applicable not be able to use all functions of this website in full.
You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com .com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Google Analytics Remarketing
It is possible that the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in connection with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick are already being used on this website or that they will be used in the future. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This function makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-related, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one end device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browser history to your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be placed on every device on which you log in with your Google account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs, which are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device advertising.
You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/ .
The summary of the recorded data in your Google account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or revoke with Google (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). In the case of data collection processes that are not merged in your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merger), the collection of data is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest results from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymous analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
Further information and the data protection regulations can be found in Google’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/ .
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
It is possible that the functions of Google AdWords are already being used on this website or that they will be used in the future.
AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. If you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie will be set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user’s computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers’ websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie in your Internet browser under user settings.
“Conversion cookies” are stored on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
You can find more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking in Google’s data protection regulations: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/ .
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
It is possible that Google Fonts from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) are already being used on this website or that they will be used in the future.

If you have an account with Google, none of your Google account data will be transmitted to Google while using Google Fonts. Google only records the use of CSS and the fonts used and stores this data securely. You can find more about these and other questions at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq .
You can read about which data is collected by Google and what this data is used for at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/ .
It is possible that “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) is already being used on this website or that it will be used in the future. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
With reCAPTCHA it should be checked whether the data entry on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is done by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the website visitor spends on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyzes run completely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is taking place.
Data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web offerings from abusive automated spying and from SPAM.

Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to be able to use the Google+ button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.

The data you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you have canceled the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members’ area) remain unaffected.
Notes on the newsletter and consents
With the following information we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and the procedures described.
Content of the newsletter
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or legal permission. If the contents of the newsletter are specifically described when registering for the newsletter, they are decisive for the consent of the user.
Double opt-in and logging
Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with someone else’s e-mail address.
The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes storing the time of registration and confirmation as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by MailChimp are also logged.
Use of “MailChimp”
It is possible that functions of the shipping service provider “MailChimp” are already being used on this website or will be used in the future.
The newsletter is sent using “MailChimp”, a newsletter mailing platform from the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on the MailChimp servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp can use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them or pass them on to third parties.
To register for the newsletter, it is sufficient if you enter your e-mail address.
Optionally, we ask you to enter your first and last name. This information is only used to personalize the newsletter. Furthermore, we also ask you to optionally indicate your age, gender and hobbies. We only use this information to adapt the content of the newsletter to the interests of our readers.
Statistical survey and analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, ie a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval, are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor that of MailChimp to monitor individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
Online retrieval and data management
There are cases in which we direct the newsletter recipients to the MailChimp websites. For example, our newsletter contains a link with which the newsletter recipient can access the newsletter online (e.g. in the event of display problems in the e-mail program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can subsequently correct their data, such as their e-mail address. Likewise, MailChimp’s data protection declaration can only be accessed on their website.
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to its dispatch via MailChimp and the statistical analyzes expire. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.
You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
