In order for you to know what happens to your personal data, we would like to explain how we use these and what your options are regarding the manner that your data is used and collected.
1. Collection and use of data
1.1 Personal data means the information that may explicitly be used to identity you. This includes information such as:
- Your actual name
- Email address
- Postal address
- Telephone number, etc.
Anonymous log-file data are information that are not directly connected to your actual identity, such as the number of users of a website. These data are not categorised as personal data.

- Name of your internet provider
- The website from which you are visiting
- The sites of ours that you visit
- Data and duration of your visit.
This information may be evaluated for statistical purposes, in order to improve our website and our service. They cannot be assigned to any particular person nor is this information merged with other data sources.
1.2 Our website is also an information platform, on which we would like to answer your inquiries. In order to make the contact more personal, you have the possibility to inform us of your name, address and email address via the contact form. You can, of course, also receive information without specifying your personal data or simply by using an anonymous email address.
2. Collection and processing of personal data
We use your personal data to enable your visit to our website, to answer your contact requests or to make bookings and to create anonymous usage statistics based on the automatically transmitted data (see section 1.1), which allow us to understand the use of our website and to subsequently shape these according to the user needs and target groups. In addition, we store and use your data to offer you the greatest possible benefit through our website. This includes, in particular, the development and delivery of new services that are tailored to you. With your consent, we also use your personal data for promotional purposes, such as sending newsletters or brochures.
Personal data is only saved if you provide us with this information, for example, to book a room or apartment or in the course of guest communication. Your personal data will only be shared with third parties, if this is necessary for the purpose of contract fulfilment or for billing purposes, while maintaining the compliance with § 11 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) for the processing of order data, or if you previously consented to this.
We do not sell your data to third parties.
3. Intended use
We only share and forward your data if we are authorised to do so.
3.1 In connection with the processing of orders and bookings, we transfer personal data to companies that assist us in this process. This applies especially to providers of credit card billing services, as far as the data transmission is required for processing the payment. To that end, we collaborate with the following companies: American Express International Inc. NL Germany, Theodor-Heuss-Allee 112, 60486 Frankfurt am Main (for AMEX Card); SIX Payment Services (Europe) S.A., branch office Germany, Dreieichstraße 59, 60594 Frankfurt am Main, Germany (for Visa, MasterCard, Diners, Maestro, VPay).
3.2 In accordance with the legal provisions, we may be required to inform law enforcement authorities or courts of your personal data for the purpose of prosecution. This ensures that possible misuse can be detected in a timely manner and that the damage to other users can thereby be clarified or even prevented.
4.1 Cookies are small, often encrypted text files that are stored in your browser directory. Through cookies it is possible to identify you as a particular customer and to save your personal preferences when using our website as well as your technical information. This especially has the advantage for you that you do not need to re-enter the information contained in the cookies every time you visit our website. As such, cookies do not necessarily contain or reveal personally identifiable information. If, however, you enter personal information on our website, they may be linked to the data stored in the cookies. Nevertheless, operators of other websites do not have access to these files.
4.2 We also use Google Analytics for our website. This is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., which can be used to generate detailed statistics about the traffic of a website and the source of these. We use Google Analytics exclusively for statistical purposes, for example, to understand how many users have clicked on particular product information. Google Analytics is based on cookie technology and collects information about your use of our website, including your IP address. In order to avoid a user identification via the IP address, we have used a special code that ensures that your IP address is only logged in a truncated and thus anonymous form. Identification of individual users is no longer possible via this shortened IP address. The information collected by Google Analytics is forwarded to Google Inc. in the USA.

7.4 We use the function ‘Activate the IP anonymisation’ on our website. That way, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the area of the Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transferred to Google servers in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for the website operators and providing them other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
