Tracking Tools

General information

We use the web analysis service of Google Analytics for the purpose of designing our website in line with your needs and continuously optimizing it. In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and small text files stored on your computer ("cookies") are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transferred to the servers of the providers of these services, stored there and prepared for us. In addition to the data listed under point 1, we may receive the following information as a result:
  • Navigation path that a visitor follows on the site,
  • Dwell time on the website or subpage,
  • the page on which you leave the website,
  • the country, region or city from where access is made,
  • Terminal device (type, version, colour depth, resolution, width and height of the browser window) and
  • Returning or new visitor.
The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services connected with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and the design of this website in line with requirements. This information may also be transferred to third parties where required by law or where third parties process this data on our behalf.

Google Analytics

The provider of Google Analytics is Google Inc, a company of the holding company Alphabet Inc, with headquarters in the USA. Before the data is transmitted to the provider, the IP address is shortened by activating IP anonymization ("anonymizeIP") on this website within the member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The anonymised IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. In these cases we ensure by contractual guarantees that Google Inc. maintains an adequate level of data protection. According to Google Inc., the IP address will never be associated with other data concerning the user.
Further information about the web analysis service used can be found on the Google Analytics website. For instructions on how to prevent the web analytics service from processing your data, see

Data processing in connection with your stay

Data processing to fulfil legal reporting obligations

Upon arrival at our hotel, we may need the following information from you and your accompanying persons:
  • First and last name
  • Postal address and canton
  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth
  • Nationality
  • Official identification card and number
  • Arrival and departure day
  • Room number
We collect this information in order to fulfil legal reporting obligations, which arise in particular from hospitality or police law. Insofar as we are obliged to do so under the applicable regulations, we forward this information to the competent police authority.
In the fulfilment of the legal requirements, our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO exists.

Recording of purchased services

If you receive additional services during your stay (e.g. you make use of the mini-bar or the pay TV offer), the object of the service and the time of the service receipt will be recorded by us for accounting purposes. The processing of this data is required in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the processing of the contract with us.

Storage and exchange of data with third parties

Booking platforms

If you make bookings via a third-party platform, we receive various personal information from the respective platform operator. As a rule, this is the data listed in section 5 of this data protection declaration. In addition, we may receive requests for information about your booking. We will process these data by name in order to record your booking according to your wishes and to provide the booked services. The legal basis of the data processing for this purpose is the fulfilment of a contract according to Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b DSGVO.
Finally, we may be informed by the platform operators about disputes in connection with a booking. We may also receive information about the booking process, including a copy of the booking confirmation as evidence of the actual booking. We process this data to protect and enforce our claims. This is our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO. Please also note the data protection information of the respective provider.

Central storage and linking of data

We store the data specified in paragraphs 2-5 and 8-10 in a central electronic data processing system. The data concerning you will be systematically recorded and linked for the purpose of processing your bookings and handling the contractual services. For this purpose we use software from [hotelpac ag, Postfach, CH-3900 Brig]. We base the processing of this data within the framework of the software on our justified interest in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO in customer-friendly and efficient customer data management.

Duration of storage

We store personal data only as long as it is necessary to use the above-mentioned tracking services and further processing within the scope of our legitimate interest. Contract data will be stored by us for a longer period of time, as this is required by legal storage obligations. Retention obligations which oblige us to retain data result from regulations on the right to report, on accounting and from tax law. According to these regulations, business communication, concluded contracts and accounting records must be kept for at least 10 years. If we no longer need this data to provide services to you, the data will be blocked. This means that the data may then only be used for accounting and tax purposes.

Transfer of data to third parties

We will only pass on your personal data if you have expressly consented to this, if there is a legal obligation to do so or if this is necessary to enforce our rights, in particular to enforce claims arising from the contractual relationship. In addition, we will pass on your data to third parties as far as this is necessary within the scope of the use of the website and the processing of the contract (also outside the website), namely the processing of your bookings.
One service provider to whom the personal data collected via the website is passed on or who has or can have access to it is our web host HOSTSTAR - Multimedia Networks AG [Switzerland], Kirch-gasse 30, 3312 Fraubrunnen. The website is hosted on servers in [Switzerland, Germany and Austria]. The data is transferred for the purpose of providing and maintaining the functionality of our website. This is our legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Finally, when you make a credit card payment on the Website, we forward your credit card information to your credit card issuer and to the credit card acquirer. If you choose to pay by credit card, you will be asked to enter all mandatory information. The legal basis for the transfer of data is the fulfilment of a contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. With regard to the processing of your credit card information by these third parties, we ask you to also read the General Terms and Conditions and the data protection declaration of your credit card issuer
. Please also note the information in sections 7-8 and 10-11 regarding the transfer of data to third parties.

Transfer of personal data abroad

We may also transfer your personal data to third companies (commissioned service providers) abroad for the purposes of the data processing described in this privacy policy. These companies are obliged to the same extent as we are ourselves to protect your data. If the level of data protection in a country does not correspond to that in Switzerland or the EU, we will ensure by contract that the protection of your personal data corresponds to that in Switzerland or the EU at all times.

Further Information

Right of access, rectification, erasure and limitation of processing; right of data transfer

You have the right to request information about the personal data that we store about you. In addition, you have the right to have incorrect data corrected and the right to have your personal data deleted, provided that this does not conflict with any legal obligation to retain the data or any permission that allows us to process it.
You also have the right to reclaim from us the data you have given us (right to data portability). Upon request, we will also pass on the data to a third party of your choice. You have the right to receive the data in a standard file format.
You can contact us for the above-mentioned purposes by e-mail at . We may, at our discretion, require proof of identity for the processing of your applications.

Data security

We use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data stored with us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
You should always keep your access data confidential and close the browser window when you have finished communicating with us, especially if you share the computer with others.
We also take internal data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service companies we commission have been obligated by us to maintain secrecy and to comply with data protection regulations

Note on data transfers to the USA

For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out to users who are resident or domiciled in Switzerland that surveillance measures are in place in the USA by US authorities, which generally allow the storage of all personal data of all persons whose data has been transferred from Switzerland to the USA. This is done without any differentiation, restriction or exception based on the objective pursued and without any objective criterion that would make it possible to limit access to the data by the US authorities and its subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes that could justify the interference associated with both access to and use of the data. Furthermore, we would like to point out that there are no legal remedies available in the United States for Swiss data subjects that would allow them to access, correct or delete data relating to them, or that there is no effective judicial protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of the person concerned to this legal and factual situation in order to make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of their data.
Users residing in a member state of the EU are advised that the USA does not provide an adequate level of data protection from the perspective of the European Union - among other things due to the issues mentioned in this section. Insofar as we have explained in this data protection declaration that recipients of data (such as Google) are based in the USA, we will ensure that your data is protected at an adequate level with our partners, either through contractual arrangements with these companies or by ensuring that these companies are certified under the EU or Swiss-US Privacy Shield.

Right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority

You have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority at any time.
