In order to exercise your right of cancellation, the hotel must be informed by means of a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail) of your decision to cancel this contract.

Consequences of cancellation 

If you cancel this contract, the hotel has to pay back to you all payments that the hotel has received from you, including the delivery costs (with the exception of the additional costs that are incurred as a result of you having selected a different type of delivery than the low-priced standard delivery offered by the hotel), without delay and no later than within 14 days of the date on which the notification of your cancellation of this contract was received by the hotel. To make this repayment, the hotel will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless otherwise expressly agreed with you; in no event will the hotel charge you fees on account of this repayment. 

The hotel can refuse to make the repayment until it has received the voucher or until you have furnished proof that you have sent back the voucher, depending on which occurs first.

5.2. All prices indicated are exclusive of value added tax, as the voucher itself represents a 100% credit. The invoice with statement of the tax can be issued only at the time the service is actually performed, i.e. when the voucher is redeemed (UstG - Value Added Tax Act).

5.3. The voucher is valid only when the due amount has been paid in full.

5.4. All vouchers are valid for three years from the date of issue and must be redeemed within this period.

5.5. If there is a price increase for a service in the time between the voucher is purchased and redeemed, the increase needs to be paid additionally.

The warranty is provided in accordance with the statutory provisions. 

With the exception of cases of personal injury and breaches of material contractual obligations, the hotel is liable only in the event of wilful intent and gross negligence. In the event of breach of a material contractual obligation by the hotel as a result of only ordinary negligence, the liability of the hotel is limited to the foreseeable damages that are typically incurred.

8. Data protection 

8.1. The customer agrees that their personal data may be collected, processed and used for the purposes of executing the contract and for marketing purposes. Your data will be processed automatically by the hotel. You will receive advertising information in this connection exclusively from the hotel or a service provider commissioned by the hotel. This data is not disclosed to third parties.

8.2. Your security is given the highest priority! For that reason, data such as credit card numbers, bank sort codes, account numbers, names and addresses is transferred using a secure SSL line when payment is made by credit card. No unauthorised party can thus read the data you have entered online while it is being transmitted. The hotel applies a number of additional security measures to provide additional security in the voucher shop.

8.3. The rights of the customer pursuant to the Datenschutzgesetz (DSG 2000 - Austrian Data Protection Act) remain unaffected.
