Confidential data handled responsibly
Personal data (such as name, e-mail address, telephone number) are processed and conveyed by the operator only in a lawful manner - in particular for the fulfillment of contractual or legal obligations, on the basis of predominant legitimate interests of the operator or on the basis of the consent of the user.
The lawfulness of data processing results from the Austrian Data Protection Act as well as from the regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR). The legal basis is specifically detailed in the following processing.
Presentation of our Website
The operator continuously optimises the presentation and services offered for the website users. In order to better understand how the pages are used, the operator saves the following data, short term, each time the site is accessed: name of the website visited, requested details, date/time, volume of data transmitted, message about successful retrieval of data, browser/version/language, operating system, previously visited sites, duration of use, country of origin and anonymised IP-address. By visiting this website, the user, in accordance to Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR, gives his/her consent to the short term storage of the IP address of the terminal. The user's IP-address will be deleted when use of the website is complete. The operator uses the aforementioned data anonymously only for statistical purposes in connection with the offer.
What happens to your data received in a user inquiry
On making contact with the operator (eg. by contact formula or e-mail), the following user's information may be stored for the purpose of processing the request, as well as, in the case of follow-up questions: title, first name and surname, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number and additional inquiry-related information (eg. duration of stay, number of persons).
Personal data collected in this manner will be deleted by the operator within three years, after processing of the request has been completed. The personal data disclosed by the user will only be processed and used by the operator to the extent necessary in fulfilling the request and /or for the provision of the requested service.
In the course of this data processing, the operator may forward the collected personal data to the following third parties:
Micado IT – Solutions
(Website Agency in the Kitzbühel Alps)
Feratel Media Technologies AG
(System provider - Back Office / Guests Database and Booking Tool)
(Search engine optimisation)
Kitzbüheler Alpen Members / Landlords
Depending on the inquiry or booking, only the personal data necessary to fulfil the request, will be forwarded to the tourist region's members / landords. The relevant members can vary from case to case.
According to Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR data processing is required to fulfil the contract or to implement pre-contractual procedures.
To protect your data, we remain responsible for the involvment of a data processor. Data processors outside the European Union are only used if there is a European Commission adequacy decision for the third country involved or if there are appropriate safeguards or legally binding data protection legislation with the data processor.
Registration is basically not required for use of this website. However, after registering on this website, the user also receives additional access to further offers, additional services or service features relating to holidays in the Kitzbühel Alps.
By registering, the user gives his conclusive consent, in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR, that his personal data (first name, surname, username, e-mail address) will be stored by the operator and used for the provision of additional, service-oriented content. The personal data will be stored for the duration of registration and for a maximum of 4 months thereafter, and then deleted. An earlier deletion by the user is possible at any time by sending an appropriate e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The user receives further information on the additional content during the registration process.
Competitions & Surveys
When participating in a competition or survey offered by this Website, personal data (first name, surname, e-mail address) is collected. In participating in a competition or survey, the user, in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR gives his consistent consent that the operator stores and uses this personal data for the purpose of organising the competition or survey and in identifying and informing the winner. The data will be stored for the duration of the competition - for a maximum of 36 months thereafter and then deleted. By participating, the user agrees to his name being published on the Website, as well as on the public social media networks of the Kitzbüheler Alpen (Facebook, Instagram). Additional terms and data processing may be displayed separately, where necessary, in some competitions or surveys and can supplement this point.
What happens in Newsletter Registrations
If a user subscribes to an operator's newsletter, the user's personal data, namely title, first name, surname and e-mail address, is collected and processed. Consequently, the user regularly receives a personalised e-mail containing personalised information and offers from the operator (ie. newsletter). Through a newsletter subscription, the user, in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR, gives his conclusive consent that his data may be used for the periodic sending of the newsletter. The double opt-in procedure is used for the registration. On completion of the registration, the user receives a confirmation and authorisation e-mail, to the address supplied by him, with the instructions to click on the link supplied within. This ensures that only the authorised user of the given e-mail address can sign-up for the newsletter.
The user can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. At the end of every newsletter there is a link which allows the user to unsubscribe. Alternatively, the user can send an appropriate e-mail to email@example.com. After unsubscribing, the user's personal data will be deleted from the list of newsletter recipients within three months.

Social Media Plugins for even more information
