Access data / server logfiles
The Kvarner Palace (or our Webspace provider) collects data on every access to the offer (so-called server logfiles). This access data includes: The name of the website called up, the file, date and time of the retrieval, the transmitted data quantity, the report on successful retrieval, the browser type in addition to the version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (the website visited previously), the IP address and the provider making the request. We only use the protocol data for statistical assessments for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, we reserve the right to subsequently inspect the protocol data if, due to specific indications, a justified suspicion of illegal utilisation exists.
Handling personal data
The security of your personal data is important to us. We use it exclusively for a particular purpose and only forward it on to third parties if it contributes towards the fulfilment of this purpose as commissioned expressly by us. According to the EU General Data Protection Regulations (DSGVO) and the Bundesgesetzblatt (Federal Law Gazette) 2017/120 (LINK) of the Republic of Austria which is finally to come into effect on 25.5.2018, users have the right to receive information free of charge regarding the personal data we have stored on them. In addition, every customer or user has the right to correct incorrect data, or to block or delete their personal data if no obligation of retention or notification contradicts this.
In the case the Hotel Kvarner Palace is contacted (for example via contact form, CHAT or Email), the user’s information will be saved for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case subsequent queries result.
Comments and contributions
If users leave comments in the blog or other contributions, their IP addresses will be saved. This is executed in order to safeguard the provider, in case someone writes illegal content in the comments and contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.) In such cases, we ourselves can be sued for the comments or contributions, and therefore we have a vested interest in the identity of their author.
The subsequent comments can be subscribed for by the users. The users receive a confirmation Email in order to check whether they are the owners of the Email address. Users can deregister from running comment subscriptions. The confirmation Email contains guidelines on how to do so. The confirmation Email contains guidelines on how to do so.

You can revoke your consent to storage of the data, the email address and its use for dispatch of the newsletter at any time. The revocation can take place via a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area or through notification to the abovementioned contacts.
Integration of third-party services and contents
It may be the case that contents by third parties such as for example, videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer.

Therefore, the IP address is required for the presentation of this content. We attempt to use only those contents, the respective provider of which merely uses the IP address to deliver the contents. However, we cannot influence the fact that the third-party provider may utilise the IP address for statistical purposes, for example.
