Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google’) on the legal basis of predominant legitimate interest (analysis of website use). We have concluded a contract with Google to process order data for this purpose. When visiting our website, a connection is established to the Google servers via a software and data is transmitted to Google servers, some of which are located in the USA. Google Analytics also uses cookies to store information about the website user and to analyse the website user’s use of the site. This website uses the function ‘Activation of IP anonymization’. Consequentially, Google will truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.
According to Google, Google will use the collected data to evaluate the website use, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services related to website and internet use.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties should this be required by law or if third parties process this data on Google’s behalf.

You have the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter via our website. To do so, we need your e-mail address and your declaration that you agree with the subscription to the newsletter.

To send the newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. we will send you a newsletter by e-mail only if you have previously explicitly confirmed to us that we should activate the newsletter service. We will then send you a notification e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter by clicking on a link in this e-mail.

You can register for the newsletter during the booking process. A single opt-in procedure is used here, which means that you provide consent a single time that you would like to receive newsletters from young austria.

Should you later no longer want to receive newsletters from us, you can revoke this consent at any time without incurring any costs. You will also find an unsubscribe link in every newsletter. A statement in writing sent to the address in our contact details (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient.
