Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to Amadee Appartements (“we” or “us”). With that in mind, we have established and implemented information-handling practices for hausamadee.at (“site”) that we believe are consistent with the standards and practices of hospitality organizations doing business on the Internet. This privacy policy (“policy”) describes the practices that apply to our site, including, specifically, the information we collect about you, when and how we collect and process that information. We have prepared a detailed policy so that you can make an informed decision about the extent you provide your information to our site. Please do not use our site if you do not agree with this Privacy Policy.

Simply put:

  • we will not collect personally identifiable information like your name, email, mailing address or telephone number (“Personal Information”) in a manner inconsistent with this policy;
  • we will not disclose your Personal Information to third parties except as described in this policy, or unless you have authorized us to do so in advance;

  • we will take reasonable steps to protect the security of the Personal Information we collect from you. The remainder of this policy describes our information handling practices in detail.

Refusal to provide Personal Information for the above-mentioned purposes may affect our ability to fulfill contractual obligations or to provide you with services, information, and or material requested by you. With your consent, we may also use your Personal Information in order to provide you with advertising and promotional materials relating to us or other third parties using automatic means (such as e-mail or fax.), as well as paper mail and operator-assisted phone calls.

All data recorded in the "Zimmersoftware" software is divided into appropriate data categories and will be automatically deleted after the legal basis no longer applies.

Hosting und E-Mail Provider

We host our website with our processor easyname GmbH, Canettistrasse 5/10, 1100 Vienna, Austria.

Connection data is processed for the purpose of providing and delivering the website. For the mere purpose of delivering and providing the website, the data will not be stored beyond the call.

The legal basis for data processing is the legitimate interest (absolute technical necessity for the provision and delivery of the “website” service you expressly requested when you called it up) in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

To operate the website, the connection data and other personal data are also processed as part of various other functions or services. This is explained in detail in the context of this data protection declaration for the individual functions or services.

Furthermore, easyname acts as an e-mail provider (sending, receiving and saving of e-mails).

Server log files

Connection data is processed for the purpose of monitoring the technical function and increasing the operational security of our web host. The processing time is timely limited.

The legal basis for data processing is the legitimate interest (absolute technical necessity of a server log file as a basic database for error analysis and for security measures within the framework of the “website” service expressly requested by your call-up) in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR.

Contact Form

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

Payment processing

If you make a payment in our booking engine, several electronic payment options are possible. The provider of this payment service is:

  • Stripe Payments Europe, Limited, The One Building, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Dublin 2, Co. Dublin, Ireland.

This corresponds to our legitimate interest in offering an efficient and secure payment method (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). In this context, we pass on the following data to Stripe insofar as this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR).

  • name of the cardholder

  • order number
  • bank details
  • credit card details
  • validity period of the credit card

The processing of the data specified under this section is not required by law or contract. Without the transmission of your personal data, we cannot make a payment via Stripe.

Stripe takes on the role as controller in data processing activities. As the controller, Stripe uses your transmitted data to fulfill regulatory obligations. This corresponds to Stripe’s legitimate interest (according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) and serves to execute the contract (according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR). We have no influence on this process.

Stripe has implemented compliance measures for international data transfers. These apply to all worldwide activities in which Stripe processes personal data of natural persons in the EU. These measures are based on the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs).

Cookies

Our website uses cookies or similar technologies to offer you the opportunity to book our services online. The cookies set, their purpose and storage period are described in more detail in the cookie settings:

Open cookie preferences

What are cookies?

In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of your browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (these are referred to as session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit (persistent cookies). You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually whether to accept them, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or accept cookies in general. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be restricted.

Web analysis with Matomo

With your consent, we use the open source software Matomo to analyze and statistically evaluate the use of the website. Cookies are used for this. The information obtained about website usage is only transmitted to our server and summarized in pseudonymous usage profiles. We use the data to evaluate the use of the website. The data collected will not be passed on to third parties.

The IP addresses are anonymized (IP masking) so that they cannot be assigned to individual users.

The data is processed on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter a GDPR. We are thus pursuing our legitimate interest in optimizing our website for our external presentation.

You can withdraw your consent at any time by deleting the cookies in your browser or by changing your privacy settings.

During your visit to the website, the following data, among others, is recorded:

  • Pages viewed
  • Orders including sales and the products ordered
  • The achievement of "website goals" (e.g. contact requests and newsletter registrations)
  • Your behavior on the pages (e.g. length of stay, clicks, scrolling behavior)
  • Your approximate location (country and city)
  • Your IP address (in abbreviated form so that no clear assignment is possible)
  • Technical information such as browser, Internet provider, end device and screen resolution
  • Source of your visit (i.e. via which website or via which advertising medium you came to us)

The data on this website and Matomo are hosted in Austria (see also information on the hosting provider). The data never leaves the EU.

Data Security

We maintain technical, electronic, and organizational security procedures to maintain the security of Personal Information, and safeguard Personal Information against unauthorized or unlawful processing and/or against accidental or unlawful loss, alteration, disclosure or access. Our security procedures include contractual terms with any contractors, agents or data processors that require such entities to protect the security and confidentiality of Personal Information in accordance with our standards.

It is your responsibility to safeguard any email or password that you have created or used in connection with this site, and to notify us if you ever suspect that the security and confidentiality of such email or password has been compromised in any way. You are solely responsible for any use of this site via your email and password.

SSL Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential data, such as enquiries you sent to us as the provider, this website uses an SSL encryption. You recognise an encrypted transmission by the change of the address line of the browser from “https://” to “https://” and by the lock-symbol in your browser address line.

If the SSL encryption is active, the data you have transmitted to us cannot be accessed by third parties.

Retention of Personal Information

We will maintain Personal Information for as long as we are required to do so by applicable law(s), or for as long as necessary for the purpose(s) described above for which it is processed. We will delete Personal Information when it is no longer needed and, in any case, upon expiration of the maximum storage term set forth by applicable law.

Notification of Changes

We may change this policy from time to time. If we decide to change this policy in a material way (for example, a change regarding disclosure of Personal Information), we will post notice of the change on our site. Your continued use of our site after we make changes to this policy is deemed acceptance of those changes. If any proposed change is unacceptable to you, you may request to that we remove your Personal Information (and/or that of other individuals for whom you made your travel reservations) from our records.

Links

Our site provides links to other sites. When you click on one of these links, you are leaving our site and entering another site that we do not control and for which we cannot be responsible. You should carefully review the privacy statements or policies on any other site that you visit because those privacy statements or policies will apply to your visit to that site and may be very different from our policy.

Your Rights

You have the right to access, review, correct, change or delete your Personal Information that you have provided to us by written request. You can also object to the processing of your personal data for marketing purposes, or, for legitimate reasons, for other purposes, by contacting us.

If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.

Contact Information

If you have any questions or concerns about (a) access to Personal Information, (b) the collection, use, management or disclosure of Personal Information, (c) this policy or our information handling practices, or (d) with whom your Personal Information is shared, or if you need further assistance with respect to our Privacy Policy, you may contact Amadee Appartements as indicated below.
