Privacy and Cookie Policy

Privacy and Cookie Policy

This privacy policy is intended to help you understand what data we collect through the Hotel Fjordgaarden website, why we collect it and what we do with it. This is important not only to ensure the security of your personal data but also to ensure that Hotel Fjordgaarden meets all the conditions in accordance with GDPR, which became law in EU states in 2018.

General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

GDPR set a new framework for how personal data is processed and how we relate to your right to privacy. GDPR aims to strengthen and unify data protection rules and rights for the benefit of EU citizens. It applies to all EU organisations and non-EU organisations (of any size) that provide goods and services to the EU or that use tracking technologies (such as cookies or tracking pixels) to monitor the behaviour of EU users.
