Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority
for the management of the Hotel Wirth. The use of the Internet pages of the Hotel Wirth is possible without any
indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website,
processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no
statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject
shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the countryspecific
data protection regulations applicable to the Hotel Wirth. By means of this data protection declaration, our
enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect,
use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights
to which they are entitled.
As the controller, the Hotel Wirth has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the
most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data
transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason,
every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of the Hotel Wirth is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the
adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and
understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like
to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:
a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”).
An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to
an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more
factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that
natural person.
b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller
responsible for the processing.
c) Processing
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal
data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage,
adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise
making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the
future.
e) Profiling
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to
evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects
concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences,
interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
f) Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be
attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional
information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the
personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency
or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of
personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State
law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State
law.
h) Processor
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on
behalf of the controller.
i) Recipient
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are
disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the
framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as
recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable
data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
j) Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller,
processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process
personal data.
k) Consent
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data
subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the
processing of personal data relating to him or her.

2. Name and Address of the controller

Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable
in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:
Hotel Wirth
Rüdiger Wirth e.K.
Hauptstraße 19
58540 Meinerzhagen
Deutschland
Phone: +49 (0) 2354 705910
Email: hotel@hotelwirth.de
Website: https://www.hotel-meinerzhagen.de

3. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Hotel Wirth collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated
system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1)
the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from
which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of
access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the
accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our
information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the Hotel Wirth does not draw any conclusions about the data
subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the
content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology
systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for
criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Hotel Wirth analyzes anonymously collected data and
information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to
ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are
stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

4. Contact possibility via the website

The website of the Hotel Wirth contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well
as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail
address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the
data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the
data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this
personal data to third parties.

5. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to
achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or
regulations to which the controller is subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another
competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal
requirements.

6. Rights of the data subject

a) Right of confirmation
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the
confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject

Officer or another employee of the controller.
b) Right of access
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller free

significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.
Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain information as to whether personal data are
transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject shall
have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.

Protection Officer or another employee of the controller.
c) Right to rectification
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller without
undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the
purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed,
including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data
Protection Officer or another employee of the controller.
d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the
erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the
obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as
the processing is not necessary:
The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or
otherwise processed.
The data subject withdraws consent to which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article
6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for

of the controller. The Data Protection Officer of the Hotel Wirth or another employee shall promptly ensure
that the erasure request is complied with immediately.
Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the
personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take
reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that
the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those
personal data, as far as processing is not required. The Data Protection Officer of the Hotel Wirth or another
employee will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
e) Right of restriction of processing

instead the restriction of their use instead.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required
by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the
verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the
processing of personal data stored by the Hotel Wirth, he or she may at any time contact our Data Protection
Officer or another employee of the controller. The Data Protection Officer of the Hotel Wirth or another
employee will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data
concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machinereadable
format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance
from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on
consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a
contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated
means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public
interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data
subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where
technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on
point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The Hotel Wirth shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can
demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and
freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the Hotel Wirth processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right
to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to
profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Hotel Wirth
to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Hotel Wirth will no longer process the personal data for
these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to
processing of personal data concerning him or her by the Hotel Wirth for scientific or historical research
purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary
for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact the Data Protection Officer of the
Hotel Wirth or another employee. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information
society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated
means using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

7. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Jetpack for WordPress

On this website, the controller has integrated Jetpack. Jetpack is a WordPress plug-in, which provides additional
features to the operator of a website based on WordPress. Jetpack allows the Internet site operator, inter alia, an
overview of the visitors of the site. By displaying related posts and publications, or the ability to share content on the
page, it is also possible to increase visitor numbers. In addition, security features are integrated into Jetpack, so a
Jetpack-using site is better protected against brute-force attacks. Jetpack also optimizes and accelerates the loading
of images on the website.
The operating company of Jetpack Plug-Ins for WordPress is the Automattic Inc., 132 Hawthorne Street, San
Francisco, CA 94107, UNITED STATES. The operating enterprise uses the tracking technology created by
Quantcast Inc., 201 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, UNITED STATES.
Jetpack sets a cookie on the information technology system used by the data subject. The definition of cookies is
explained above. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the
controller and on which a Jetpack component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology
system of the data subject is automatically prompted to submit data through the Jetpack component for analysis
purposes to Automattic. During the course of this technical procedure Automattic receives data that is used to create
an overview of website visits. The data obtained in this way serves the analysis of the behaviour of the data subject,
which has access to the Internet page of the controller and is analyzed with the aim to optimize the website. The data
collected through the Jetpack component is not used to identify the data subject without a prior obtaining of a
separate express consent of the data subject. The data comes also to the notice of Quantcast. Quantcast uses the data
for the same purposes as Automattic.
The data subject can, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a
corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an
adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Automattic/Quantcast from setting a cookie on the
information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Automattic/Quantcast may
be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data relating to a use of this Internet
site that are generated by the Jetpack cookie as well as the processing of these data by Automattic/Quantcast and the
chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must press the ‘opt-out’ button under the link
https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/ which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with this purpose is placed
on the information technology system used by the data subject. If the cookies are deleted on the system of the data
subject, then the data subject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.
With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, the possibility exists that the websites of the controller are not fully
usable anymore by the data subject.
The applicable data protection provisions of Automattic may be accessed under https://automattic.com/privacy/. The
applicable data protection provisions of Quantcast can be accessed under https://www.quantcast.com/privacy/.

8. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific
processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the
data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or
to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such
processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of
inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of
personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c
GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data
subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company
and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital
or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations
could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered
by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests
pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or
fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing
operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He
considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47
Sentence 2 GDPR).

9. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our
business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
10. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After
expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the
fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

11. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a
contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to
provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from
contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a
contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data
subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her.
The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not
be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our Data Protection
Officer. Our Data Protection Officer clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is
required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to
provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

12. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
