You may revoke the given consent at any time with effect for the future and / or object to future uses of your data. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. In case of cancellation, your data will be deleted immediately, unless there are legal regulations.

Data storage:

a) hotel reservation:

When you reserve a room with us, we electronically save all associated information except the credit card number up to ten years after your (last) departure. In accordance with the rules of the various credit card companies, there is no electronic storage of credit card details after their retrieval (usually on the day of the reservation or the first opening day after your reservation). The paper-based storage of your credit card data remains unaffected – the destruction of this data after the end of the statutory retention period is in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act.

Your data is collected and stored on the basis of the German “Meldegesetz”, after one year on the basis of commercial law. We may save any wishes or allergies expressed to us in order to make your stay with us as pleasant as possible.

We use GauVendi as booking engine, their privacy policy is to be found here.

b) contact form:

Data that you submit to us via the contact form on our homepage will be stored electronically until the final processing of the request. A transfer to third parties does not take place unless valid data protection regulations warrant a transfer or we are legally obliged to do so. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. In case of cancellation, your data will be deleted immediately, unless there are legal regulations. E-mail correspondence resulting therefrom is usually stored securely for possible proof and the possibility of tracking errors or errors even without a reservation for one year, otherwise in accordance with applicable trade and data protection legislation.
