This privacy policy informs users about the type, scope, and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider The Secret Sölden GmbH, Oberwindaustraße 19, 6450 Sölden, Austria on this website (hereinafter referred to as "Offer").

The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Access data/ server log files

The provider (or its web space provider) collects data every time the offer is accessed (so-called server log files). The access data includes:

Name of the requested website, file, date and time of the request, data volume transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, user’s operating system, referrer URL (website visited beforehand), IP address and requesting provider.

The provider uses the protocol data solely for statistical analysis for the operation, security and optimisation of the offer. The provider reserves the right to subsequently check the logged data if there is a justifiable suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete evidence.

Handling personal data

Personal data is information which can be used to identify a person, i.e. details which can be traced back to a specific person. This includes a name, email address or telephone number. Personal data can also include details of preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites have been viewed by which person.


Personal data can only be collected, used and forwarded by the provider if this is legally permissible or if the user consents to the collection of data.

Making contact
When you contact the provider (for example using the contact form or email), the user’s details are saved for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of any related questions arising.

Integration of services and third-party content
It may be that the online offer includes third-party content such as YouTube videos, map materials from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. The assumption is that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as ‘third-party providers’) record the user’s IP address. Without the IP address, the content cannot be sent to the browser of the relevant user. The IP address is therefore essential to the presentation of this content. We strive to only use such content where the relevant provider will use the IP address solely for the purpose of supplying the content. However we have no influence over whether the third-party supplier saves the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. If we become aware of this, we will inform users.

In event of activation of IP anonymisation, Google will truncate the user’s IP address for member states of the European Union as well as for other parties to the agreement in the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. IP anonymisation is active on this website. On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the user’s use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing the website provider with other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

The plugin content is transferred directly to your browser by Facebook and is then embedded in the website. The provider has no influence over the extent of the data collected by Facebook via this plugin and informs the user as follows of its knowledge as it stands:

the embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that a user has accessed the relevant page of our website. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account. If a user interacts with the plugins, for example by clicking the ‘Like’ button or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it.
 Even if a user is not a member of Facebook, it is possible that the plugins will identify and transmit the user’s IP address to Facebook. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.

For information on the purpose and extent of the data collection, the processing of data by Facebook, your rights in this regard and settings options for protecting user privacy, please visit Facebook’s privacy policy:
