Cookies

Our Website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file sent to, and temporarily stored on, the hard disc of a user and/or client during a visit to a Website. The cookies themselves contain no personal data. If our Website server is re-accessed by the Website user and/or clients, the browser of the Website user and/or client sends the previously received cookie back to the server. The server can then evaluate this information in different ways.

 

You can delete cookies at any time, or they can be denied access by your pre-set browser settings. We wish to point out that most browsers automatically accept cookies. Should you wish not to accept any cookies, though, you can adjust your browser accordingly (usually under “Settings” or “Extras”). For optimum use of the Websites we do recommend, however, that you do not deactivate the use of cookies in your browser. In particular the checklist for selected tourist businesses can only be used if cookies are accepted and not deactivated.

 

Collecting and processing data

These data are: the name of the file accessed, date and time of the access, volume of data sent, a report on the successful access, Web browser and accessing domain. The IP addresses of the accessing computers are also recorded. The data stored are used for internal, system-related and statistical purposes. When cookies are used, user profiles can also be created under a pseudonym. However, without your explicit consent the Website user will never be identified personally and data on use will never be associated with the bearer of the pseudonym. Moreover, personal data are processed further only for purposes of performance of contract, e.g. when holiday accommodation is booked, an order is placed via our online shop, or a user registers for our Newsletter.

On behalf of the operator of this Website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the Website for the purpose of compiling reports on the Website activities and rendering further services for the Website operator related with the use of the Website and the Internet.
