  4. Changes to purpose (Forwarding)
    Direct advertisement:
    VIENNA HOUSE hereby informs that it processes customers' personal data for the purposes of direct advertisement (incl. profiling). VIENNA HOUSE intends to use direct advertisement to aid in the marketing of advertised (proprietary or third-party) services and products. The data will not be passed onto any (non-group-affiliated) third parties for this purpose. There is no incompatibility with the purpose of the original data collection.

  5. Objecting to processing for the purposes of direct advertisement:
    The customer can object to the use of their personal data for direct advertisement (including "profiling") at any time without providing any reasons to the controller. By lodging an objection, VIENNA HOUSE can no longer use the customer's personal detail for these purposes in future.

  6. Legal basis of data processing
    1. Management of guest data: Fulfilment or preparation of the agreement
    2. Direct advertisement (incl. profiling): overriding legitimate interests of VIENNA HOUSE (see Point 8.)
    3. Legal obligation (Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR)
    4. Additional service: consent. The controller explicitly solicits the customer's consent for individual services (electronic newsletter, transfer of the data into the marketing system). This consent can be revoked at any time with future effect.

  7. Special cases of data processing:
    Access controls: protection against unauthorised access via electronic locking systems for hotel rooms (bedrooms, lounges, spa, lifts, etc.)
    Video surveillance: monitoring of publicly accessible rooms in the hotel

  8. Description of the (overriding) legitimate interests for the purposes of direct advertisement:
    VIENNA HOUSE also processes customer data (however, not the data of children or special categories personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 GDPR ("sensitive data")) to use said data for the purposes of direct advertisement for (further) products of companies affiliated with VIENNA HOUSE (see also Point 5.). VIENNA HOUSE has a legitimate interest in processing personal data for the purposes of direct advertisement (Recital 47, last section of GDPR). This solely involves the processing of customer data in the possession of VIENNA HOUSE from the contractual relationship and for which the retention period still applies. This does not involve an extension to the retention period. The primary goal of data processing is acquiring customers with the objective of bringing them into a (preliminary) contractual relationship and retaining them as customers. VIENNA HOUSE relies on its constitutionally protected freedom of running a business (Art. 6 StGG (Austrian Constitution)) and freedom of communication (particularly Art. 10 ECHR, which also protects advertising measures), and on those rights
    • To send postal advertisement;
    • To make advertising calls following consent;
    • To send electronic mail following consent;
    • To send electronic mail in accordance with Section 107 Para. 3 of the Telecommunication Act (TKG);
    VIENNA HOUSE complies with legal, communication-related requirements while using this data, particularly those of Section 107 TKG.
    • Video surveillance:
      A data protection impact assessment (Art. 35 and 36 GDPR) has been performed. Signs are placed visibly to provide notice of video monitoring. VIENNA HOUSE has a legitimate interest in the video surveillance of publicly accessible parts of the hotel in order to safeguard the protection of domiciliary right, property as well as guests.
    • Data processing within the group:
      VVIENNA HOUSE is part of a corporate group. VIENNA HOUSE uses group-affiliated companies on a collaborative basis to fulfil its extensive obligations (processing bookings via a central booking system, payment systems, marketing, accounting, etc.). VIENNA HOUSE has a legitimate interest therein (Recital 48 of GDPR).
      This particularly relates to the management of booking data from all group-affiliated companies performed via a central booking system. This database is maintained by VIENNA HOUSE; data is saved and managed centrally. The data is inputted directly by the customer, the subsidiary hotel, or the booking agent depending on the booking. Group-affiliated companies have access to this database for the purposes of contractual fulfilment (performing bookings, capacity planning, etc.).
    • IT security:
      VIENNA HOUSE saves the IP addresses of its customers for a period of 7 days in order to defend against targeted attacks in the form of overloading servers (denial of service attacks) and other damage to systems. VIENNA HOUSE has a legitimate interest in this form of data processing for the purposes of maintaining the functionality of its services provided online (Recital 49 of GDPR).

  9. Analyses of personal aspects of the customer ("profiling")
    "Gathering and storing"
    VIENNA HOUSE stores customer activities (e.g. duration of stay, orders, complaints, special services, personal preferences, response to offers etc.) to enable optimal customer care and to ensure relevant and targeted measures can be used to improve satisfaction and customer retention, and to adjust the service on an individual basis.
    Analysis of personal interests
    VIENNA HOUSE stores customer behaviour, special services, personal preferences, and thus deduces specific personal interests in order to prevent dispersion losses (and to minimise data processing operations) when playing advertising content and within direct marketing. VIENNA HOUSE uses these analysed interests in order to communicate targeted, interest-specific offers and advertising to customers and thus prevent dispersion loss in advertising.

  10. Objecting to "profiling":
    The customer can object to the use of their personal data for the purposes of profiling at any time without providing any reasons to the controller. By lodging an objection, VIENNA HOUSE can no longer use the customer's personal detail for the purpose of profiling in future.
