Privacy policy

We are very delighted that you have shown inte­rest in our enter­prise. Data protec­tion is of a parti­cu­larly high prio­rity for the manage­ment of the Hotel Goldener Anker. The use of the Internet pages of the Hotel Goldener Anker is possible without any indi­ca­tion of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enter­prise services via our website, proces­sing of personal data could become necessary. If the proces­sing of personal data is necessary and there is no statu­tory basis for such proces­sing, we gene­rally obtain consent from the data subject.

The proces­sing of personal data, such as the name, address, e‑mail address, or tele­phone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protec­tion Regu­la­tion (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protec­tion regu­la­tions appli­cable to the Hotel Goldener Anker. By means of this data protec­tion decla­ra­tion, our enter­prise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Further­more, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protec­tion decla­ra­tion, of the rights to which they are enti­tled.

As the controller, the Hotel Goldener Anker has imple­mented nume­rous tech­nical and orga­niz­a­tional measures to ensure the most complete protec­tion of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data trans­mis­sions may in principle have secu­rity gaps, so abso­lute protec­tion may not be guaran­teed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alter­na­tive means, e.g. by tele­phone.

1. Defi­ni­tions

The data protec­tion decla­ra­tion of the Hotel Goldener Anker is based on the terms used by the Euro­pean legis­lator for the adop­tion of the General Data Protec­tion Regu­la­tion (GDPR). Our data protec­tion decla­ra­tion should be legible and under­stand­able for the general public, as well as our custo­mers and busi­ness part­ners.

  • e)    Profiling

    Profiling means any form of auto­mated proces­sing of personal data consis­ting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects rela­ting to a natural person, in parti­cular to analyse or predict aspects concer­ning that natural person’s perfor­mance at work, economic situa­tion, health, personal prefe­rences, inte­rests, relia­bi­lity, beha­viour, loca­tion or move­ments.

  • f)     Pseud­ony­mi­sa­tion

    Pseud­ony­mi­sa­tion is the proces­sing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attri­buted to a specific data subject without the use of addi­tional infor­ma­tion, provided that such addi­tional infor­ma­tion is kept sepa­r­ately and is subject to tech­nical and orga­ni­sa­tional measures to ensure that the personal data are not attri­buted to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fiable natural person.

  • g)    Controller or controller respon­sible for the proces­sing

  • j)      Third party

    Third party is a natural or legal person, public autho­rity, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct autho­rity of the controller or processor, are autho­rised to process personal data.

  • k)    Consent

    Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unam­bi­guous indi­ca­tion of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a state­ment or by a clear affir­ma­tive action, signi­fies agree­ment to the proces­sing of personal data rela­ting to him or her.

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of the Hotel Goldener Anker use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique iden­ti­fier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assi­gned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to diffe­ren­tiate the indi­vi­dual browser of the dats subject from other Internet brow­sers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be reco­gnized and iden­ti­fied using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the Hotel Goldener Anker can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the infor­ma­tion and offers on our website can be opti­mized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to reco­gnize our website users. The purpose of this reco­gni­tion is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shop­ping cart in an online shop. The online store remem­bers the arti­cles that a customer has placed in the virtual shop­ping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corre­spon­ding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus perma­nently deny the setting of cookies. Further­more, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other soft­ware programs. This is possible in all popular Internet brow­sers. If the data subject deac­ti­vates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all func­tions of our website may be enti­rely usable.

4. Collec­tion of general data and infor­ma­tion

The website of the Hotel Goldener Anker collects a series of general data and infor­ma­tion when a data subject or auto­mated system calls up the website. This general data and infor­ma­tion are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the opera­ting system used by the acces­sing system, (3) the website from which an acces­sing system reaches our website (so-called refer­rers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the acces­sing system, and (8) any other similar data and infor­ma­tion that may be used in the event of attacks on our infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy systems.

When using these general data and infor­ma­tion, the Hotel Goldener Anker does not draw any conclu­sions about the data subject. Rather, this infor­ma­tion is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) opti­mize the content of our website as well as its adver­ti­se­ment, (3) ensure the long-term viabi­lity of our infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy systems and website tech­no­logy, and (4) provide law enfor­ce­ment autho­ri­ties with the infor­ma­tion necessary for criminal prose­cu­tion in case of a cyber-attack. There­fore, the Hotel Goldener Anker analyzes anony­mously collected data and infor­ma­tion statis­ti­cally, with the aim of incre­a­sing the data protec­tion and data secu­rity of our enter­prise, and to ensure an optimal level of protec­tion for the personal data we process. The anony­mous data of the server log files are stored sepa­r­ately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Subscrip­tion to comments in the blog on the website

The comments made in the blog of the Hotel Goldener Anker may be subscribed to by third parties. In parti­cular, there is the possi­bi­lity that a commenter subscribes to the comments following his comments on a parti­cular blog post.

If a data subject decides to subscribe to the option, the controller will send an auto­matic confir­ma­tion e‑mail to check the double opt-in proce­dure as to whether the owner of the speci­fied e‑mail address decided in favor of this option. The option to subscribe to comments may be termi­nated at any time.

6. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator or other legis­la­tors in laws or regu­la­tions to which the controller is subject to.

8. Data protec­tion for appli­ca­tions and the appli­ca­tion proce­dures

The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of appli­cants for the purpose of the proces­sing of the appli­ca­tion proce­dure. The proces­sing may also be carried out elec­tro­ni­cally. This is the case, in parti­cular, if an appli­cant submits corre­spon­ding appli­ca­tion docu­ments by e‑mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employ­ment contract with an appli­cant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of proces­sing the employ­ment rela­ti­onship in compli­ance with legal requi­re­ments. If no employ­ment contract is concluded with the appli­cant by the controller, the appli­ca­tion docu­ments shall be auto­ma­ti­cally erased two months after noti­fi­ca­tion of the refusal decision, provided that no other legi­ti­mate inte­rests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legi­ti­mate inte­rest in this rela­tion is, e.g. a burden of proof in a proce­dure under the General Equal Treat­ment Act (AGG).

9. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Face­book

On this website, the controller has inte­grated compon­ents of the enter­prise Face­book. Face­book is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online commu­nity, which usually allows users to commu­ni­cate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a plat­form for the exchange of opinions and expe­ri­ences, or enable the Internet commu­nity to provide personal or busi­ness-related infor­ma­tion. Face­book allows social network users to include the crea­tion of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

The opera­ting company of Face­book is Face­book, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Face­book Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­dual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Face­book compo­nent (Face­book plug-ins) was inte­grated, the web browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject is auto­ma­ti­cally prompted to down­load display of the corre­spon­ding Face­book compo­nent from Face­book through the Face­book compo­nent. An over­view of all the Face­book Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, Face­book is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Face­book, Face­book detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire dura­tion of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This infor­ma­tion is collected through the Face­book compo­nent and asso­ciated with the respec­tive Face­book account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Face­book buttons inte­grated into our website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Face­book matches this infor­ma­tion with the personal Face­book user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Face­book always receives, through the Face­book compo­nent, infor­ma­tion about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Face­book during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regard­less of whether the data subject clicks on the Face­book compo­nent or not. If such a trans­mis­sion of infor­ma­tion to Face­book is not desi­rable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Face­book account before a call-up to our website is made.

The data protec­tion guide­line published by Face­book, which is avail­able at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides infor­ma­tion about the collec­tion, proces­sing and use of personal data by Face­book. In addi­tion, it is explained there what setting options Face­book offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addi­tion, diffe­rent confi­gu­ra­tion options are made avail­able to allow the elimi­na­tion of data trans­mis­sion to Face­book. These appli­ca­tions may be used by the data subject to elimi­nate a data trans­mis­sion to Face­book.

10. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Insta­gram

On this website, the controller has inte­grated compon­ents of the service Insta­gram. Insta­gram is a service that may be quali­fied as an audio­vi­sual plat­form, which allows users to share photos and videos, as well as disse­mi­nate such data in other social networks.

The opera­ting company of the services offered by Insta­gram is Face­book Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­dual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which an Insta­gram compo­nent (Insta button) was inte­grated, the Internet browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject is auto­ma­ti­cally prompted to the down­load of a display of the corre­spon­ding Insta­gram compo­nent of Insta­gram. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, Insta­gram becomes aware of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Insta­gram, Insta­gram detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire dura­tion of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This infor­ma­tion is collected through the Insta­gram compo­nent and is asso­ciated with the respec­tive Insta­gram account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Insta­gram buttons inte­grated on our website, then Insta­gram matches this infor­ma­tion with the personal Insta­gram user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Insta­gram receives infor­ma­tion via the Insta­gram compo­nent that the data subject has visited our website provided that the data subject is logged in at Insta­gram at the time of the call to our website. This occurs regard­less of whether the person clicks on the Insta­gram button or not. If such a trans­mis­sion of infor­ma­tion to Insta­gram is not desi­rable for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging off from their Insta­gram account before a call-up to our website is made.

Further infor­ma­tion and the appli­cable data protec­tion provi­sions of Insta­gram may be retrieved under https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

11. Legal basis for the proces­sing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for proces­sing opera­tions for which we obtain consent for a specific proces­sing purpose. If the proces­sing of personal data is necessary for the perfor­mance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when proces­sing opera­tions are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the proces­sing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such proces­sing opera­tions which are necessary for carrying out pre-contrac­tual measures, for example in the case of inqui­ries concer­ning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obli­ga­tion by which proces­sing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfill­ment of tax obli­ga­tions, the proces­sing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the proces­sing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital inte­rests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital infor­ma­tion would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the proces­sing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR.
Finally, proces­sing opera­tions could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for proces­sing opera­tions which are not covered by any of the above­men­tioned legal grounds, if proces­sing is necessary for the purposes of the legi­ti­mate inte­rests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such inte­rests are over­ridden by the inte­rests or funda­mental rights and free­doms of the data subject which require protec­tion of personal data. Such proces­sing opera­tions are parti­cu­larly permis­sible because they have been speci­fi­cally mentioned by the Euro­pean legis­lator. He consi­dered that a legi­ti­mate inte­rest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

12. The legi­ti­mate inte­rests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the proces­sing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legi­ti­mate inte­rest is to carry out our busi­ness in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the share­hol­ders.

13. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to deter­mine the period of storage of personal data is the respec­tive statu­tory reten­tion period. After expi­ra­tion of that period, the corre­spon­ding data is routi­nely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfill­ment of the contract or the initia­tion of a contract.

14. Provi­sion of personal data as statu­tory or contrac­tual requi­re­ment; Requi­re­ment necessary to enter into a contract; Obli­ga­tion of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible conse­quences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provi­sion of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regu­la­tions) or can also result from contrac­tual provi­sions (e.g. infor­ma­tion on the contrac­tual partner).

Some­times it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subse­quently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provi­sion of the personal data would have the conse­quence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.

Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clari­fies to the data subject whether the provi­sion of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclu­sion of the contract, whether there is an obli­ga­tion to provide the personal data and the conse­quences of non-provi­sion of the personal data.

15. Exis­tence of auto­mated decision-making

As a respon­sible company, we do not use auto­matic decision-making or profiling.
