Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). Personal data of users based outside the United States and Canada is processed by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. You can recognise social plugins by the Facebook logo or the description “Facebook Social Plugin”. An overview of social plugins is provided at: Each time you visit a page of our website containing such a plugin a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook Inc. has certified to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks and guarantees to comply with European data protection regulations. Once a plugin on our website is activated, the content of this plugin is immediately transmitted from Facebook to your browser and embedded in the website.

6) YouTube videos

Our website uses YouTube embedded videos provided by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (“YouTube”) and Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). We embed videos using YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode. This mode ensures that user information will be collected and stored only if you interact with one of the videos. If you click to start an embedded YouTube video, YouTube will set cookies on your computer to collect information about your usage of the embedded video. According to YouTube this information is used, among other things, for generating statistical information about video usage, optimising user-friendliness, and preventing unlawful actions. Please note also that once you access our website a connection to the Google DoubleClick network will be established regardless of whether you play an embedded video or not. This may enable the further processing of data beyond our influence. To receive further information about YouTube’s data protection measures please refer to their privacy policy at:

7) Google AdWords conversion tracking

This website uses features of the Google AdWords online advertising platform, including Google AdWords conversion tracking. The provider of these functions is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Once you interact with an ad placed by Google, a temporary cookie will be placed on your computer. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer’s hard drive. The temporary cookies set in the process of conversion tracking will expire after 30 days and will not be used for personal identification. If you access specific pages of our website and the cookie is still active, Google and we as the provider of this website will recognise that you have clicked a specific ad and have been redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. This ensures that cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The cookie placed in the process of conversion tracking also enables the storage of personal information such as information about which Internet pages you have visited. Every time you visit our website, personal information including the IP address of your computer will be transmitted to Google servers in the US. This personal data will be stored by Google on servers in the US. Google has certified to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks and guarantees to comply with European data protection regulations. The information collected through the cookie placed in the process of conversion tracking serves to generate statistical data about conversion actions for Google AdWords customers using the conversion tracking function. Customers thus receive information about the number of users who have clicked on an ad and have been transferred to a page with a conversion tracking tag. The information thus transmitted cannot, however, be used for personal identification. If you do not want your information to be tracked in this way, you may disable respective cookies used in the context of Google conversion tracking in your browser settings. You may also refuse to receive personalised ads by Google. In order to do so please use the link:, and change respective settings on your computer to be excluded from the collection of statistical information.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer, enabling us to analyse your use of our website. The information generated through these cookies on your use of our website are transmitted to Google servers in the US and stored there. Google has certified to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks and guarantees to comply with European data protection regulations. Please note also that this website uses the IP anonymisation feature provided by Google Analytics. Your IP address will thus be truncated and rendered anonymous before any further processing takes place. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there. On behalf of the provider of this website, Google will use this information in order to analyse your use of this website, compile reports on website activity, and provide us with other services related to website activity and Internet usage.

10) Competitions

The competition is open to residents of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland aged 18 years or over. To enter the competition, you need a Facebook account. Employees of Imst Tourismus or anyone otherwise involved in the organisation or prize draw of the competition is excluded from participation.

Competition posts must not depict any unlawful content. In particular, submitted posts must not contain any false statements; hateful, defamatory, and discriminatory materials; or infringements of intellectual property rights, such as trademark rights or copyrights. If a third party alleges such an infringement by a post, the author of this post shall be held liable upon first demand for any damages incurred. The liability also includes lawyer’s fees incurred in defence against third-party claims that may arise from breaches of the terms of participation. By entering this competition, each entrant agrees that the promoter or their official representatives may delete or have deleted any posts or comments submitted to the promoter’s Facebook page, or entries on posts of the promoter or other parties involved, as they deem appropriate. The entrant concerned will thus be excluded from participation in the competition.

If the winner cannot be contacted, the promoter is entitled to withdraw the prize without providing an alternative prize and to select a new winner. The promoter reserves the right to cancel or amend the competition or the terms and conditions without prior notice, provided there are reasonable grounds to do so. These may include technical problems, such as hard- or software issues or manipulation to the IT system, or legal reasons affecting the implementation or completion of the competition. The promoter also reserves the right to refuse entry or refuse to award the prize to anyone who is in breach of the terms of participation. Any false information regarding entrance requirements or the unlawful submission of more than one competition post or multiple comments will result in disqualification of the entrant concerned. If necessary, entrants may also be disqualified and prizes withdrawn or reclaimed after the end of the competition. The prize cannot be exchanged for cash or any other substitute.

The judges’ decision is final. The legal contract agreed on by the entrants and the promoter of the competition is subject to the law of the Republic of Austria. These terms and conditions of participation may be changed at any time without prior notice.

Data privacy statement

To enter the competition, the entrant’s Facebook user name will be required to process their participation. In the case of a win, the entrant’s full name and address will also be processed for administration purposes. By participating, all entrants agree that the promoter of the competition may repost and publish the post with which they have entered the competition as well as the winning photo. In the event of a win, the entrant further agrees to their name being announced publicly and published on Facebook or elsewhere and that a photo will be taken of the prize being awarded. This photo may be used and published by the promoter of the competition at their discretion. Each entrant may revoke consent to the processing and publication of their data at any time and thus withdraw from competition before it has ended. This competition is entirely based on respective public communication of the competition and its winners. Therefore, each entrant expressly agrees to the processing and public announcement of their data and photos for the purpose of conducting this competition in the interests of Imst Tourismus.

Promoter of the competition: Imst Tourismus, Johannesplatz 4, 6460 Imst, Austria
