4. Newsletter

The following paragraphs will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and procedures described.


We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter referred to as “newsletters”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of the newsletter are specifically described within the framework of registration, they are decisive for the consent of the user. In addition, our newsletters contain information about our travel offers (this may include in particular information about planned and upcoming trips, last-minute offers, travel reports, our services or online appearances).


The registration to our newsletter takes place in a so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. This means that you will receive an e-mail after registration asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with an e-mail address other than his own. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes storing the login and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Likewise the changes of your data stored with MailChimp are logged.


The newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described above, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information for the optimization or improvement of its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and display of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine which countries the recipients come from. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write directly to them or pass them on to third parties. We rely on the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and is thus committed to complying with EU data protection regulations. In addition, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process them on our behalf in accordance with their data protection regulations and, in particular, not to pass them on to third parties. You can view the privacy policy of MailChimp here.


The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on technical data or target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval points (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. It is, however, neither our aim nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.


There are cases in which we direct the newsletter recipients to the MailChimp websites. For example, our newsletters contain a link with which recipients can call up the newsletters online (e.g. in the event of presentation problems). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can subsequently correct their data, such as the e-mail address. Likewise, the privacy policy of MailChimp is only available on their site. In this context we want to point out that on the websites of MailChimp cookies are used and therefore personal data are processed by MailChimp, its partners and service providers (e.g. Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection. Further information can be found in MailChimp’s privacy policy. In addition, we draw your attention to the possibility of objecting to the collection of data for advertising purposes on the websites and (for the European area).


In every newsletter which you receive, you will find all information pertaining to unsubscribing from the newsletter. At the time of unsubscribing, your consents to its dispatch via MailChimp and the statistical analyses expire. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.

For more information on our newsletter, please contact us under [email protected]. We are happy to help.

5. Transferring to third parties/ obligations of processors

In consideration of permissible purposes (e.g for our electronic advertisements in the form of newsletters),

  • your personal data may be passed on to company-internal processors,
  • who have committed to complying with the valid data protection standards, or
  • to third parties, who have been contacted to provide your requested services (e.g. foreign booking procedures of any kind).

In specific cases at least a part of your data will be processed and forwarded to foreign countries outside of the European Union and the European Economic Area, where valid EU and Austrian data protection standards might not be fulfilled. This data processing and forwarding in/to third countries will only happen to fulfil contractual duties, in case of legal requirements, your given consent or in consideration of our legitimate interests. Other than with legal or contractual permission, data will only be processed and forwarded to third countries under special conditions complying with Art. 44 et sequ. GDPR, which are for instance standard contractual clauses, arrangements or certifications (e.g. “Privacy Shield” in the USA).
