Data categories – This may be your name, surname, title, company name, home or residence address, private and/or business phone number, email address, desired booking period, composition and age range of the group, choice of lodge, reasons for renting, correspondence (including via the contact form), etc.
Purpose – The data you provide is processed in order to respond to your inquiry, to examine the possibility of a rental, to manage the rental and to communicate with you about it.

Similarly, other data can be disclosed, e.g. to accounting firms or suppliers in connection with the rental (e.g. for weddings or events).
Duration – The data relating to the rental inquiry is kept for 1 year after the inquiry or for 5 years after the stay if a booking is made.
We are required to keep billing data until the expiry of our tax and accounting obligations, or for 7 full tax years.
