We store your personal data for as long as is necessary to provide our services, comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our policies. The retention periods depend on the type of data collected and the purpose for which this data was collected, taking into account both the case-specific circumstances and the need to delete outdated, unused information as soon as possible. We store records with personal data from customers, documents about the account setup, messages and other data in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
We can correct, complete or remove incomplete or inaccurate data at any time and at our sole discretion.

Basis for data acquisition
The processing of your personal data (ie any data that allows you to be identified by justifiable means; "personal data") is necessary in order to fulfill our contractual obligations to you and so that we can provide you with our services, protect our legitimate interests as well as legal and to be able to meet financial regulatory obligations to which we are subject.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, storage, use, disclosure and other use of your personal data as described in this privacy policy.
Please read the privacy policy carefully before making any decisions.

Which data are recorded?
We collect two types of data and information from users.
The first category includes non-identifying and non-identifiable user data that is provided or collected through the use of the website ("non-personal data"). We do not know the identity of the user from whom non-personal information was collected. The non-personal data that can be recorded includes aggregated usage data and technical data transmitted by your device, including certain information relating to software and hardware (e.g. browser and operating system used on the device, language setting, access time, etc. .). We use this data to improve the functionality of our website. We can also collect data about your activity on the website (e.g. pages viewed, surfing behavior, clicks, actions, etc.).
The second category includes personal data, i.e. data that identifies an individual or can identify them through appropriate measures. Such data include:

  • Device data: We collect personal data from your device. Such data include geolocation data, IP address, unique identifiers (e.g. MAC address and UUID) and other data resulting from your activity on the website.
  • Registration data: If you use the contact or registration form on our website, you will be asked to provide certain information, e.g. E.g. first and last name, email address or address or other information.

How do we get data about you?
We obtain your personal data from various sources:

  • You provide us with such data voluntarily, for example when registering on our website.
  • We receive such data when you use our website or access it in connection with one of our services.
  • We receive such data from other providers, services and from public registers (for example from data traffic analysis providers).

How is the data used? Who will the data be passed on to?
We do not pass on user data to third parties, except as described in this privacy policy.

We use data for the following purposes:

  • To communicate with you (information about our offers or detailed information about events)
  • To register for tours, hikes, seminars or events
  • If you contact us via the contact form or email, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The specification of the data is necessary for processing and answering your request - without this provision we cannot answer your request, or at most only to a limited extent.

The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR.
Your data will be deleted if your request has been finally answered and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements, e.g. in the event of a subsequent contract processing.
In addition to the various uses listed above, we can also pass on personal data to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies and subcontractors.
In addition to the purposes listed in this privacy policy, we can forward personal data to our trustworthy external providers, who are based in different jurisdictions around the world, for the following reasons:

  • Hosting and operating our website

We may also disclose information if we have a good faith belief that it is helpful or appropriate to: (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or government request; (ii) enforce our policies (including our agreement) and investigate any possible violations related thereto; (iii) investigate, detect, prevent, or take action against illegal activity or other misconduct, suspected fraud or security issues; (iv) to assert or enforce our own legal claims or to defend ourselves against the claims of others; (v) protect the rights, property or safety of our users, your safety or the safety of others; or to (vi) cooperate with law enforcement agencies and / or protect intellectual property or other legal claims.

Contract processing
The data transmitted by you for the use of our range of goods and / or services will be processed by us for the purpose of processing the contract and are required in this respect. It is not possible to conclude and process the contract without providing your data.
The legal basis for the processing is Article 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR.
We delete the data when the contract is fully processed, but must observe the retention periods under tax and commercial law.
As part of the contract processing, we pass on your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery of goods or to the financial service provider, insofar as the transfer is necessary for the delivery of goods or for payment purposes.
The legal basis for forwarding the data is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
So that our content is displayed correctly and graphically appealing in every browser, we use script and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts https://www.google.com/webfonts for this website.

It is currently not known whether and for what purpose the operators of the relevant libraries actually collect data.
  • You can find the privacy policy of the operator of the Google library here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

Collection of data by third parties

This privacy policy does not apply to the business practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to anyone other than our employees, including third parties, to whom we disclose this information as described in this privacy policy.

Use of Google Maps
We use Google Maps on this website. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter "Google"). This enables us to show you interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to conveniently use the map function.

If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account.

Social plugins
Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our website. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.
Via these plugins, information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service operator and may be used by the operator. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider with a 2-click solution.

Only when the plug-in is activated is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We do not collect any personal data ourselves using the social plugins or their use.
We have no influence on which data an activated plug-in collects and how it is used by the provider. It must currently be assumed that a direct connection to the provider's services will be established and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. There is also the possibility that the service provider will try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is recorded and how it is used.
