Data protection declaration
As the provider of the website www.schwarzreiter.com and as the controller, Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten GmbH, takes the data protection obligation extremely seriously and designs its website in such a way that only such personal data which is necessary is gathered, processed and used. Personal data will never be leased or sold to third parties for advertising purposes. Without the express consent of the visitor, no personal data will be used for advertising or marketing purposes.
At Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten GmbH, access to personal data is limited to such persons who require this in order to carry out their work tasks as controllers, who have been informed of the statutory provisions relating to data protection and have undertaken to comply with these in accordance with the applicable statutory provi-sions (Article 5 GDPR). In accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 GDPR, the gathering, processing, use and transfer of the personal data which has been obtained only takes place to the extent which is necessary to per-form a contractual relationship between Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten GmbH as the controller and the visitor as the data subject.
Changes to the purposes of the processing and data use
As the processing procedures used can alter or develop further due to technical progress and organisational changes, we reserve the right to update this data protection declaration in ac-cordance with the new technical framework conditions. We would therefore kindly request that you check the data protection declaration of Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten GmbH from time to time. Should you not agree to further developments which occur over time, in accordance with Article 17 GDPR you can request in writing the deletion of the data which is not saved on the basis of other statutory regulations, such as retention obligations under commercial law or tax laws.
Anonymous data gathering
As a rule, you can visit the websites of the controller without telling us who you are. We are only informed of the name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us and the websites belonging to us which you visit. This information is used for statistical purposes. As an individual user, you remain anonymous during this process.
Gathering and processing of personal data
Personal data is only gathered if you disclose this to us, for example when registering for the newsletter. During this process, the controller complies with the regulations under Article 5 and Article 6 GDPR. Within the framework of the personalised services of the controller, your registration data will be processed to send our newsletter and design our electronic services in accordance with customer requirements, provided that you have issued your consent to such processing. At all times, you have the option of objecting to the saving of your personal data. In order to do so, please send an email to rolf(at)lauser-nhk.de with the subject “remove from data inventory”.
The processing and use of your personal data takes place in accordance with the regulations of the GDPR.
Export and processing of the data in countries outside of the European Economic Area
No export of your personal data to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) takes place.
However, should you be logged in to Facebook or hold a Twitter or Instagram account, per-sonal data may be exported to the USA. For more detailed explanations and to find out about your options to prevent this data export, please consult the sections “use of Facebook social plugins” and “use of Twitter” as well as “use of Instagram social plugins” in this data protec-tion declaration.
Should you be logged in to Google or hold a YouTube account, personal data can be exported to the USA. For more detailed explanations and to find out about your options to prevent this data export, please consult the section “use of YouTube plugins”.
However, a transfer of personal data to Google in the course of the use of analysis programs by the controller does not take place, as your IP address is only transferred anonymously. For more information, please consult the point “use of analysis programs” in this data protection declaration.
The service providers engaged by the controller maintain their place of business and operate their IT infrastructures exclusively within the EEA. This also applies to any use of cloud based services. Contracts exist with the service providers which comply with the data protection and data security regulations contained in the GDPR. Also in case that external service providers are en-gaged, Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten GmbH remains the controller for the processing.
Use and disclosure of personal data
The personal data gathered through the website will only be used without your consent in or-der to perform the contract and process your queries. In addition, your data will only be used for advertising and market research purposes if you have issued your consent to such in ad-vance. Otherwise, no disclosure to other third parties takes place. It goes without saying that you can revoke your individual consent with effect for the future.
Data protection declaration Google Maps
This website uses the product Google Maps which is provided by Google Inc. By means of your use of this website, you are declaring your agreement to the recording, processing and use by Google Inc, its representatives and third parties of the data which is gathered automat-ically. The terms and conditions of use of Google Maps can be found under “Terms and Con-ditions of use of Google Maps”.
Data protection declaration Quandoo table reservation system
This website uses the online service Quandoo in order to process table reservations. By means of your use of this website, you are declaring your agreement to the recording, processing and use by Quandoo, its representatives and third parties of the data which is gathered automati-cally. The terms and conditions of use of Quandoo can be found under “Terms and Condi-tions of use of Quandoo”.
For information purposes, links to third party sites can be found on our websites. Unless this is obviously recognisable, we will make clear that this is an external link. The controller has no influence over the content and the design of the sites of other providers. The guarantees pro-vided in this data protection do not therefore apply to external providers.
The controller uses so-called “cookies” in order to tailor the online experience and surfing time of the customer to individual requirements and to optimise these. A cookie is a text file which is either deposited in the main memory of the computer (“session cookie”) or saved on the hard drive (“permanent cookie”). For example, cookies contain information relating to previous access of the user to the corresponding server and information about which services have been used in the past. Cookies are not used in order to start programs or transfer viruses onto your computer. Rather the main purpose of cookies is to provide a service which is tailored specifi-cally to the customer and to make the use of the service as comfortable as possible.
The controller uses both session cookies and permanent cookies.
The controller mainly uses “session cookies” which are not saved on the hard drive of the cus-tomer and which are deleted when the browser is closed. Session cookies are used for login authentication and for load balancing (comparison of system load).
In addition, the controller uses “permanent cookies” in order to save the personal settings which a customer enters when using the services of the controller and to therefore make the service more personal and to improve it. By means of the permanent cookies, it is ensured that next time the customer visits the websites of the controller, he or she can find his or her per-sonal settings. In addition, the services providers which have been engaged by the controller in relation to the analysis of the user behaviour use permanent cookies in order to recognise repeat users. These services only save the data transferred by the cookie anonymously. No assignment to the IP address of the customer takes place.
Avoidance of cookies
At all times, the visitor has the option of rejecting the setting of cookies. As a rule, this takes place by selecting the corresponding option in the browser settings or by means of additional programs. More information can be found in the help function of the browser used by the cus-tomer. Should the customer decide to disable cookies, these can reduce the scope of use of the service and have a negative effect when using the services of the controller.
Use of analysis programs
The controller carries out an analysis concerning the behaviour of its customer when using its service or has this analysis carried out by a service provider. For this purpose, anonymous use profiles or use profiles in the form of a pseudonym are created. The creation of the use profiles takes place for the sole purpose of constantly improving the service of the controller.
Within the framework of the web analysis, the controller also uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc (“Google”) with the “anonymizeIp()“ extension. By means of this, the IP addresses are only processed in shortened form in order to exclude the possibility of tracing a person directly. The data gathering and saving which takes place in the course of Google Analytics can be objected to at any time with effect for the future.
For this purpose, please contactGoogle directly >>
Google requires its users, such as the controller, to use the following notification in its data protection declaration. By means of the text below, Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten GmbH is complying with this requirement:
“Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and which enable an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) which is generated by the cookie is transferred to a server of Google in the USA and saved there. Google will use this information in order to eval-uate your use of the website, to compile reports concerning the website activities for the website operators and to provide additional services connected to the use of the website and the use of the Internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties, should this be required by law or should third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never com-bine your IP address with other data of Google. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however we wish to inform you that in such a case, you may not be able to fully use all of the functions of this website. By using this website, you are declaring your agreement to the processing of the data relating to you which is gath-ered by Google in the described manner for the purpose stated above”.
Use of Facebook social plugins
On its website, the controller uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network face-book.com which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The plugins can be identified by a Facebook logo. Should the customer access a website of the controller which contains such a plugin, the browser of the customer establishes a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. The content of the plugin is transferred by Facebook directly to the browser of the customer and integrated by this into the website.
By means of the integration of the plugins, Facebook is informed that the customer has ac-cessed the relevant page of the Internet presence of the controller. Should the customer be logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit of the customer to his or her Facebook account. Should the customer interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “like” but-ton or placing a comment, the relevant information will be transferred directly to Facebook by the browser of the customer and saved there. The purpose and scope of the data gathering and further processing and use of the data by Facebook and the rights and setting options of the customer in this respect in order to protect his or her private sphere can be found in the data protection notices of Facebook. Should the customer not wish for Facebook to collect data as stated above, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the Internet presence of the controller.
Use of Twitter
The controller uses functions of the Twitter service on its website. These functions are provid-ed by Twitter Inc, 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the “re-tweet” function, the websites which you have visited are linked to your Twitter account and displayed to other users. During this process, data will also be transferred to Twitter.
We wish to point out that as the provider of these sites, we are not informed by Twitter of the content of the transferred data and its use. Further information in this respect can be found in the data protection declaration of Twitter at:
You can alter your data protection settings with Twitter in your account settings atwww.twitter.com/account/settings.
Use of Instagram social plugins
On its website, the controller uses social plugins (“plugins”) of Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Instagram”). The plugins are shown by an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an “Instagram camera”. An overview of the Insta-gram plugins and their appearance can be found here:
Should you access a site of our web presence which contains such a plugin, your browser es-tablishes a direct connection to the servers of Instagram. The content of the plugin is trans-ferred by Instagram directly to the browser of the customer and integrated by this into the website. By means of this integration, Instagram is informed that your browser has accessed the corresponding site of our Internet presence, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transferred by your browser directly to a server of Instagram in the USA and saved there.
Should you be logged in to Instagram, Instagram can directly assign the visit to our website to your Instagram account. Should you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Instagram” button, this information is also transferred directly to a server of Instagram and saved there. The information is also published in your Internet account and displayed to your contacts.
The purpose and scope of the data gathering and the subsequent processing and use of the data by Instagram, as well as your rights and setting options in this respect for the protection of your private sphere can be found in the data protection notices of Instagram:
Should you not wish for Instagram to directly assign the data gathered via our web presence to your Instagram account, you need to log out of Instagram before visiting our website. You can also fully prevent the loading of the Instagram plugins with add ons for your browser, for example with the “NoScript” script blocker (http://noscript.net/).
Use of YouTube plugins
The controller uses the provider YouTube in order to integrate videos. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, headquartered at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is represented by Google Inc, headquartered at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
The controller uses functions of the provider YouTube on its website. Should you access our Internet presence which contains a YouTube plugin, a connection is established to the servers of YouTube. By means of this, information concerning which Internet sites you have visited is transferred to the YouTube server. Should you be logged in to YouTube as a member at this time, YouTube assigns this information to your personal user account. In case of use of the plugins, for example by clicking the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account.
You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account and other user accounts of YouTube LLC and Google Inc and deleting the relevant cookies of the compa-nies.
Further information concerning data processing and data protection at YouTube (Google) can be found at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
