3.2 Entitled interests
Furthermore, we process personal data on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 letter f DSGVO, insofar as this is necessary to protect our own legitimate interests or those of a third party and insofar as the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the protection of personal data. This applies in particular to the prevention and investigation of criminal offences, for the purposes of corporate management, internal communication and other administrative purposes.
In addition, we process personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DSGVO, provided that the contractual partner has given its consent to the processing of the data relating to the persons concerned for one or more specific purposes. The voluntarily given consent can be revoked at any time.
3.4 Legal obligation
A legal obligation to provide personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO can result from legal regulations that apply to us, such as tax laws, the reporting law and other public law obligations.
4. Disclosure to third parties
We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of the legal regulations or with the appropriate consent. Otherwise, your data will not be passed on to third parties unless we are obliged to do so by mandatory legal provisions (passing on to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement agencies).
5. Origin of the data
As a rule, we receive your personal data from you yourself or from our contractual partners, service providers and clients with whom we have concluded appropriate data protection agreements. In certain constellations, your personal data may also be collected by other parties due to legal regulations.
6. Categories of personal data processed
The recipient of the personal data is B&B HOTELS Austria GmbH, with whom the accommodation contract for the corresponding hotel room is concluded. If the hotel is not operated by B&B HOTELS Austria GmbH itself, B&B HOTELS GmbH acts as a service provider (e.g. for the operation of a hotel management system as well as in the areas of IT support and accounting/finance).
Within the company of the person responsible, only those persons and bodies (e.g. specialist departments) receive your personal data that they require to fulfil our services and legal obligations.
Under certain circumstances, certain data may be transferred to other affiliated companies if they perform data processing tasks centrally, e.g. in the context of providing and operating booking and IT systems, marketing tasks, etc. Personal data is not transferred to non-European countries.
In addition, in order to fulfil his contractual and legal obligations, the person responsible also uses, among other things, different service providers for the technical operation, maintenance and hosting of booking and IT systems or for the execution of the accommodation contract in the hotel, with whom - depending on the constellation - an agreement on order processing has also been concluded in accordance with the requirements of Art. 28, 29 DSGVO.
In addition, the responsible party may transfer your personal data to other recipients outside the company, insofar as this is necessary to fulfill legal obligations as the responsible party (e.g. reporting law, tax and duty laws, etc.).
The data processing takes place in the European Union.

We store your data as long as they are needed for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data is (must be) still stored. This applies in particular to the Hotel and Accommodation Act or tax law obligations to retain data. If there are no further storage obligations, the data will be routinely deleted once the purpose has been achieved.
In addition, we may retain data if you have given us permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within the scope of legal limitation periods, which can be up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.
8. Social media

For a detailed presentation of the respective processing of personal data, the data protection regulations and the possibilities of objection, we refer to the following linked information of the providers.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we would like to point out that these can most effectively be asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. Should you nevertheless require assistance, please contact us.
