Data protection

The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. Your data will be processed by us on the basis of the statutory provisions (General Data Protection Regulation No. 2016/679 - hereinafter "DS-GVO" and the Data Protection Act as amended - hereinafter "DSG").

1. person responsible

The responsible party within the meaning of Art 4 Z 7 DS-GVO is the operator of this website, Falstaff Travel GmbH, FN 504899z, Führichgasse 8, A-1010 Vienna (also referred to as "We ", "Us" in this privacy policy). In the imprint of the website you will also find all necessary further contact details for asserting your rights (point 6.).

 

2. personal data

We only process the personal data that you make available to us (by visiting our website or by the information you provide in a contact form or newsletter registration), such as: First name, last name, e-mail address, title, address, city, state, postal code, country, IP address; whereby not all of the specified types of data are affected or need to be specified in every case. Special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 DS-GVO are not processed by us within the scope of this website.

 

3. processing of personal data, legal basis

The processing of your personal data is primarily carried out for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (Art 6 para 1 lit b DS-GVO), as we cannot prepare, conclude or fulfil a contract with you without this data. Furthermore, the processing is carried out to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties (Art 6 para 1 lit f DS-GVO), in particular also for the purposes of the operational security of the website, claims management, direct marketing in analogue and digital form, existing customer advertising, statistical evaluation and the improvement of our service offering and its quality (for the right of withdrawal see point 6.).

If you subscribe to our newsletter (see point 10.), Art 6 para 1 lit a DS-GVO also serves as the legal basis for data processing, based on your voluntary declaration of consent:

By clicking the "Send" button, I agree that Falstaff Hotel Collection GmbH may store and process my personal data for the purpose of sending me this newsletter. I agree to receive these newsletters in accordance with § 107 TKG. I can revoke this consent at any time after it has been given without any disadvantageous consequences for me (see also point 6.).

We will only process your personal data to the extent covered by the DS-GVO and the DSG. As a rule, your personal data will not be transferred to third parties. If - for example for the fulfilment of a contract - a transfer to third parties should be necessary, this transfer will take place in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR. In this case, we ask you to also observe the data protection declarations of these third parties, as these may apply. An exception to this is the use for statistical and similar purposes; however, no personal data will be transmitted for this purpose, but only anonymised data that does not allow a natural person to be identified and cannot be assigned to a specific natural person (see also points 8, 9).

 

4. data security

Your personal data is protected by organisational and technical measures, such as protection against unauthorised access and technical data security precautions.

Please note, however, that despite these efforts, it cannot be completely ruled out that data disclosed by you via the Internet could nevertheless be viewed and potentially used by other persons. We can therefore accept no liability or responsibility for errors in data transmission or unauthorised access by third parties (e.g. hacker attacks, spyware, malware etc).

 

5. retention of personal data

Your personal data will only be stored by us for as long as is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations (corresponding storage obligations can arise, for example, in particular from tax law regulations or from product liability regulations). If this necessity is no longer given, the data will be deleted.

 

6. information, deletion, right of complaint

Subject to the existence of any legal obligations of confidentiality, you have the following rights:

 

- The right to receive information at any time about your stored personal data, its origin, the purpose of processing and, if applicable, the recipient of this data (Art 15 DS-GVO).

- The right to request the rectification, transfer, restriction of processing, blocking or deletion of your data if it is inaccurate or if the basis for the data processing no longer applies (Art 16, 17, 18, 20 DS-GVO).

- The right to object to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR ("safeguarding legitimate interests") (Art 21 of the GDPR). Please note that a possible objection has no influence on the permissibility of the processing of personal data on the basis of other permissible circumstances according to Art 6 DS-GVO.

- The right to revoke consent to the processing of personal data granted under Art 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR (Art 7 of the GDPR). Please note that a possible revocation has no influence on the permissibility of the processing of personal data on the basis of other permissions according to Art 6 DS-GVO.

We ask you to direct all such claims to one of the contact options/contact persons indicated in our website imprint.

We would like to point out that a possible objection has no influence on the permissibility of the processing of personal data on the basis of other permissions according to Art. 6 DS-GVO.

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates applicable data protection regulations or that your claims under data protection law have been violated in any other way, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority (pursuant to Art 77 DS-GVO).
