Collection of general information when you visit our website

Nature and purpose of the processing:

If you access our website – that is, if you do not register or otherwise provide information – information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, among other things, the type of browser used, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, and other similar data. It is exclusively information that cannot be connected to you as an individual.

It is processed for the following purposes in particular:

  • Ensuring smooth connection to the website,
  • Ensuring our website works properly,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability and
  • for other administrative purposes.

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally.

Anonymous information of this kind can be statistically analysed in order to improve our website and its underlying technology.

Legal basis:

Processing is carried out in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

Recipients:

Recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, technical service providers who are involved in the operation and maintenance of our website as a data processor.

Storage duration:

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. This is in principle the case for data that is used to enable provision of the website, once the session has ended.

Prescribed or required provision of data:

Provision of the above-mentioned personal data is neither required by law nor contractually prescribed. However, without the IP address and cookie identifier, the service and functionality of our website is not guaranteed. Additionally, individual services may not be available or may be limited. It is therefore not possible to object on this account.

The provision of chargeable services

Nature and purpose of the processing:

In order to provide chargeable services, we ask for additional data, e.g., payment details, in order to be able to execute your order.

Legal basis:

The processing of the data required to conclude the contract is based on art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.

Recipients:

The only recipients of the data are the responsible body and, if applicable, data processors.

Storage duration:

We store this data in our systems until the legal retention periods have expired. These are generally 6 or 10 years, for reasons of proper bookkeeping and legal tax requirements.

Prescribed or required provision of data:

Providing your personal data is voluntary. If you do not provide your personal data, we cannot grant you access to the content and services we offer.

Newsletter

Nature and purpose of the processing:

Your data will only be used to send you the newsletter you have subscribed to by email. When you provide your name, this is in order to be able to address you personally in the newsletter and, if necessary, to identify you, should you want to make use of your rights as a data subject.

In order to receive the newsletter, all you need to provide is your email address. When you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for that purpose. However, subscribers may also be notified by email of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g., changes to the newsletter offering or technical conditions).

For effective registration, we need a valid email address. In order to verify that the person registering is actually the the owner of the email address provided, we use the "double opt-in" procedure. This involves logging the newsletter order, sending a confirmation email and receiving the requested answer. No additional data are collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

Legal basis:

Based on your expressly given consent (art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR), we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by email to the email address you provided.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. Each newsletter contains a link that will allow you to revoke consent. You can also unsubscribe directly from this website at any time or inform us of your request to unsubscribe by using the contact option at the end of this data protection notice.

Recipients:

The only recipients of the data are the responsible body and, if applicable, data processors.

Storage duration:

The data is only processed in this context so long as you have provided appropriate consent. It will subsequently be deleted.

Prescribed or required provision of data:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely on the basis of your consent. Unfortunately, we are unable to send you our newsletter without your consent in place.

Contact form

Recipients:

The only recipients of the data are the responsible body and, if applicable, data processors.

Storage duration:

Data will be deleted no later than 6 months after processing the request.

If there is a contractual relationship, we are subject to the statutory retention periods under the German Commercial Code (HGB) and will delete your data after 6 years.

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely on the basis of your consent. Unfortunately, we cannot contact you without your consent in place.

Use of Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94034, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", i.e., text files stored on your computer that enable your website use to be analysed. Cookie-generated information about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. However, because IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, Google will store your IP address in shortened form if you are accessing this site from within the European Union or the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage for the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.

The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. The intention is for other related services to then be provided based on your use of the website and the internet.

Legal basis:

The data is processed based on the consent of the user (art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR).

Recipients:

The recipients of the data are the responsible body and Google as data processor. We have concluded the appropriate data processing contract with Google for this purpose.

Storage duration:

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for our recording purposes.

Transfer to third-party countries:

Google processes your data in the USA and has submitted to the EU–US Privacy Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. We also have concluded standard privacy clauses with Google for the use of Google Analytics.

Zermatt Tourismus and Bonfire AG.

Your bookings details are also processed as follows:

  • Your booking details are forwarded to Bonfire AG and Zermatt Tourism (either by us or via our electronic booking system).

  • Bonfire AG and/or Zermatt Tourism stores your booking details in a central database.

  • Zermatt Tourism uses this to calculate the visitor’s taxes payable and to collect the payment from service partners.

  • Zermatt Tourism also undertakes reporting to the Swiss Federal Statistical Office. 

  • Bonfire AG and Zermatt Tourism grant the police access to the booking data database, so that the police can download the appropriate booking data in the event of missing persons, for example.

Zermatt Tourism uses the booking data to collect statistics (specifically regarding capacity, length of stay, number of arrivals, etc.).
