Data processing on behalf of Silvretta Montafon 

In the event that we engage the services of a processor, we will be responsible for protecting personal data. We will not use a processor located outside of the European Union.

Your data will only be passed on to third parties if

  • we are legally obliged to do so.
  • we have received your express consent to pass on your data.
  • forwarding of data is required in order to fulfill the contractual relationship.

External processors and affiliates will receive personal data solely for contract-performance purposes (e.g. transfer of credit card details to the banks/payment service providers processing a transaction for the purposes of debiting the purchase price, transfer of booking data to the tourist accommodation you have selected, transfer to our tax consultant in order to fulfill our fiscal obligations) or in the course of a competition.


Data retention period

Please note that, in the context of cookies, the subscriber’s IP data will be stored in order to simplify the purchasing process and to subsequently enable the operator of the online store to execute its contract.

If the purchasing process is interrupted, the information that you have entered up until that point will not be taken into account. If a contract is concluded, any and all data arising from the contractual relationship will be stored up until the expiry of the retention period stipulated under fiscal law (7 years).

Personal data, purchased goods and purchase date will be stored beyond this period, up until the expiry of the period for product liability (10 years). Data is processed on the basis of the legal provisions laid down in the GDPR.

As you use our website, you may also register using a customer account. One of the advantages offered by registration is that you do not have to reenter your information each time you complete a booking. You may deregister at any stage by sending an email to


Your rights

You have the rights to access, rectify, erase and restrict data, the right to data portability and the rights to withdraw consent and object to processing of personal data. This is always free of charge. A reasonable fee may be charged if you request multiple copies of data or in the event that requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive. This will incur a flat-rate reimbursement of costs in the amount of €18.89 (possibly higher, if the costs actually incurred are greater).

If you believe that processing of your data constitutes a breach of data protection law or otherwise infringes upon your rights in accordance with data protection law, you may submit a complaint to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this authority is the Austrian Data Protection Authority.
