Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to, and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available by clicking on the this link.

Use of Retargeting Functions on this Website

Display of interest-related advertising with the help of "Retargeting".

This website uses so-called "Retargeting-Tags" from Google/Alphabet as well as Facebook Inc. "Retargeting Tag" refers to a JavaScript element which has been placed in the source code of the website. If a user visits a page on this website containing a retargeting tag, a provider of online advertising (such as Google) places a cookie on the computer of the user, assigning it to corresponding retargeting target-group lists. This cookie may also influence other retargeting campaigns (“interest-related advertising”) which are run on other websites. Studies have shown that the display of interest-related advertising is more appealing to users than advertising which has no direct reference to personal interests or previously visited websites.

Settings and Deactivation Options

Third-party providers, including Google, use these cookies to display ads based on prior visits to our website by the user. This process does not entail storage of any personally identifiable information. Users of this website may deactivate the use of cookies by Google, by going to Google’s "Ads Settings" page. Furthermore, users may also deactivate the use of cookies from third-party providers by visiting the deactivation page of "Network Advertising Initiative" and making changes to their settings as appropriate.

References and Links

With respect to direct or indirect referrals to third-party Internet sites, so-called “Links”, which lie beyond the sphere of responsibility of Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG, a liability obligation would only pertain in the event that Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG was aware of potentially illegal content and it would be technically possible and feasible to prevent access to such content. Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG hereby expressly declares that, at the time the links were created, the target webpages were free of illegal content. Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG has no influence whatsoever on current and future design, or upon the content or authorship of linked webpages. Consequently, Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG hereby expressly distances itself from any and all content of webpages which have been altered since the original links were created. This statement applies to all links that have been created within its own Internet presence as well as to third-party entries in services which have been provided by the company, such as guestbooks, discussion forums, mailing lists etc. Liability for illegal, erroneous or incomplete content, and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information, is borne exclusively by the provider of the website targeted by the link, and not by the party who installed a link to the publication in question.

Copyright & Trademark Protections

Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG makes every effort in all publications to respect copyright on all graphics, audio files, video clips and texts, and to make use of self-created graphics, audio files, video clips and texts, or to avail itself of non-licensed graphics, audio files, video clips and texts. All those brand names and trademarks cited in Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG’s Internet platform, some of which are, on occasion, protected by third parties, are subject without restriction to applicable copyright laws and the proprietary rights of the registered owners. The conclusion should not be drawn from their mere naming, that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights! Copyrights for those objects published and created by Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG itself, remain solely with the Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG. Duplication or use of such graphics, audio documents, video clips and texts in other electronic or print publications, is not permitted, except with the expressed permission of Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG.


Due to the technical characteristics of the Internet, no guarantee can be given for the authenticity, accuracy and/or comprehensiveness of information made available via the Internet. Likewise, no guarantee can be given with respect to the availability and/or operability of the website in question and its content.

Any liability for direct, indirect or other damages, regardless of the causes thereof, which result from the use or non-availability of data or information on this website, is, insofar as this is legally permissible, expressly excluded.

The content of this website is protected under copyright. Information presented is purely for personal use. Any further use, especially storage in databases, reproduction, any form of commercial use as well as dissemination to third-parties – either in part or in edited form – is prohibited without the expressed permission of the pertinent organization. Embedding of individual pages from our Internet presence in external frames is prohibited.

Legal Scope

This data privacy declaration explains to the user the nature, extent and purposes for the collection and use of personally identifiable data on this website. The legal foundations for your data privacy protections may be found in the Austrian Telecommunications Act (“Österreichisches Telekommunikationsgesetz” or simply “TKG”) as well as the Data Privacy Act (“Datenschutzgesetz” or “DSG”).

Server Logfiles

Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG (or the web-space provider) collects data about each access to the website (so-called server logfiles). Access data includes:

  • Name of the webpage that was accessed, file, date and time of the access, quantity of data transferred, confirmation of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referring URL (the site which had been visited immediately prior), IP address and the requesting provider.

Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG only uses the collated data in order to conduct statistical analyses for the purpose of operating, securing and optimizing the site. However, the provider does reserve the right to further inspect the data collected if there are concrete indications raising suspicion of illegal use.

Making Contact

When the user makes contact with Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG (for example, by means of the contact form or email), the user’s information will be stored in order to process the request, as well as to deal with any potential follow-up questions.

Comments and Contributions

When users leave comments in the blog or other contributions, their IP addresses are saved. This occurs for the security of the provider, in the eventuality that someone writes illegal content within their comments or contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this instance, Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG might itself be subject to prosecution for the comment or contribution, which means Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG has a vested interest in establishing the identity of the original author.

Comment Subscriptions

Follow-up comments may be subscribed to by users. The user will receive a confirmation email to determine whether or not they are the actual owner of the email address which had been provided. Users may cancel subscriptions to ongoing comments at any time. The confirmation email will contain instructions for doing so.

Newsletter, NewsPusher and Chat

By means of the Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG newsletter, as well as the currently utilized chat- and newspusher systems, Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG informs you about our offers. If you would like to receive the Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as additional information which will allow us to verify that either you are the owner of the email address which had been provided or that the actual owner does indeed wish to receive the newsletter. No further information is collected. The information is used solely in order to send the newsletter and is not shared with third-parties. This applies similarly to the use of newspusher and chat systems which are utilized on the website of Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG.

When you sign up for the newsletter, Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG stores your IP address and the date of your registration. This data is stored solely as evidence in the eventuality that a third-party misuses your email address and registers for the newsletter without the knowledge of the person entitled to do so.

You may revoke your consent to the storage of data, of your email address, or of the use thereof in order to send you the newsletter, at any time. Notice of such revocation may be sent by means of the link contained in the newsletter itself, in your profile area, or by contacting us using one of the options provided above.

Integration of Third-Party Services and Content

Within the framework of the website, third-party content such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, may be embedded. This assumes that the provider of said content (hereinafter referred to as “third-parties”) has access to the user’s IP address: without the IP address, the content could not be transmitted to the browser of the user in question. In other words, the IP address is necessary in order to display content. Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG makes every effort to use only such content, whose providers utilize the IP address solely for delivery of content. Nonetheless, Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG has no influence should the third-party use the IP address for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG, we will notify the user of that fact.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network, operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb-up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social plugins please see:

When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser, which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus, we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to the state of our knowledge:

The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be synched with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like” or adding a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is still a possibility that plugins will transmit your IP-address to Facebook. According to Facebook, within countries of the European Union only an anonymized IP address will be stored.

For the information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and settings options for protecting your privacy, please visit Facebook’s privacy policy:

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to link the data pertaining to your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. Additional settings and other means of restricting use of data for advertising purposes may be found in your Facebook profile settings:


This offer incorporates buttons for Twitter, provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are recognizable by means of words such as “Twitter” or “follow” in combination with a stylized blue bird. With the help of these buttons, it is possible to share an article or page presented on this website using Twitter, or to follow this provider on Twitter.

If a user opens a webpage on this Internet site containing such a button, their browser will immediately establish a direct connection with the servers of Twitter. Content coded into the Twitter button will immediately be transmitted by Twitter to the user’s browser.  That said, the provider of this website has no influence on the scope of data which is collected by Twitter with the help of this plug-in and informs the user of this situation only to the extent of his personal knowledge. To the extent we are aware, when the button is activated the IP address of the user and the URL of the webpage in question are transmitted, though for no other purpose than to display the button correctly.

Further information on this subject may be found within Twitter’s own data privacy policy at


Insofar as portions or individual formulations of this text do not conform, no longer conform or do not completely conform with current law, the content and legal force of the remaining portions of the document shall remain unaffected.

In order to improve the readability of the content of its website, Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG has selected to use either the male or female form with specific reference to people. This is in no way intended to indicate discrimination against the other gender. When, for example, employees are mentioned, the clear implication is that both males and females are meant. All information is addressed towards men as well as women.

Unfortunately, this website is not completely functional for people with physical restrictions affecting vision, hearing and/or motor skills. Likewise, for technical reasons some of the texts which are used are not immediately understandable for everyone. We wish to apologize for this situation and are more than happy to explain the services we offer by means of other channels. Gletscherbahnen Kaprun AG would also like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to an arbitration office (run by the Austrian Ministry of Social Affairs) which exists to resolve issues pertaining to equal opportunities for disabled persons.
