List of our data processing activities 

Dear guests! If you request a reservation for one or more rooms for yourself or third parties by telephone, by post, by E-mail or via our homepage in our guesthouse, we ask for your name, your telephone number (landline or mobile), E-mail address, the names of the arriving guests and the billing address.

Contact form:

If you contact us regarding any questions by E-mail or contact form, automatically give us your voluntary consent for contacting you. A valid E-mail address is required for this. Your E-mail address is used to assign the request and then reply to it. Providing further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. After processing your request, personal data will be automatically deleted if it does not have to be retained together with the booking documents. See below.

The employees entrusted with the necessary tasks have access to the documents (E-mails, records of room bookings and occupancy schedule). After expiration of the year, we archive the accounting documents for tax audits (retention period 10 years).

Online reservation:

In case of online reservations via portals, credit card data is transmitted in encrypted form. This information is only available to us for a short time, which is why it is handwritten and stored securely. As soon as they are no longer needed we will destroy them. Only 2 selected persons have access to credit card data. 


For issuing invoices, the stated company addresses are stored. When you are paying with a credit or Maestro card, there are documents that are subject to the retention period and must also be archived. 

Sensitive data:

Sensitive data, such as diseases, vehicle registration numbers, religious affiliations or the like are neither recorded by us in handwriting nor digitally. In case of intolerances such as lactose intolerance we make a note to protect the health of the guest. We guarantee that we do not pass on or sell any data. No newsletters or birthday wishes will be send and we will only inform you about lost property if you wish so. A corresponding request can be communicated by E-mail.

Your rights: 

As our guest you have the right to information, rectification, data portability and the right to object to the processing of your personal data, erasure and restriction of processing. These rights do not apply to business-relevant documents for which a statutory retention period (according to the German Commercial Code and Tax Code) applies (6 or 10 years). We are not obliged to erase data, which we need to assert our legal claims. 

Caution! There can always be security gaps when transferring data over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by E-mail). A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. If personal data are lost or if they are subject to unauthorised access (for example by computer hacker attack), we will report this to the responsible supervisory authority within 72 hours after we become aware of the incident. Our employees have been trained and know the new regulations. The safe handling is regularly checked.
