10. Data protection information for data subjects
If you book or request a hotel room directly with us or via a third-party provider (e.g. a hotel reservation portal), we process your personal data for the purpose of implementing an accommodation contract. The legal basis for this is Article 6 para.1 lit. b) DSGVO.
The recipient of the personal data is Frühlings-Hotel GmbH. Within Frühlings-Hotel GmbH, the data is received by those offices that need it to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations.
We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (EU-DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG new).
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is basically - unless there are still specific legal provisions - Art. 6 DSGVO. In particular, the following possibilities come into consideration here:
- Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO
- Data processing for the fulfillment of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO
- Data processing for the fulfillment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO
- Data processing on the basis of a balance of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO
If personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent to us at any time with effect for the future. To do so, please contact the above-mentioned responsible party.
If we process data on the basis of a balance of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the requirements of Art. 21 DSGVO.
In order to process your data within the framework of data protection order processing, we use external service providers in accordance with Art. 28 EU-DSGVO, who are responsible for the technical operation of our booking systems, among other things, or are commissioned with the implementation of the accommodation contract in the hotel in accordance with data protection law.
The personal data that we have stored from you will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention obligation or if the processing is based on consent and this is revoked. Retention obligations arise in particular for reasons of commercial and tax law. According to legal requirements, storage is for 6 years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 HGB, and for 10 years in accordance with § 147 para. 1 AO.
In addition, the storage period is assessed according to the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §§ 195 ff. of the German Civil Code (BGB), are usually 3 years, but can also be up to 30 years in certain cases.
Data from the registration form will be destroyed within 3 months after 1 year of mandatory storage in accordance with §30 BMG.
11. Your rights as a data subject
