Privacy Policy for Cookies:

This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that contain data from visited websites or domains and are stored by a browser on the user's computer. A cookie primarily serves to store information about a user during or after their visit within an online offering. The stored information may include, for example, language settings on a website, login status, a shopping cart, or the position where a video was watched. The term "cookies" also includes other technologies that fulfill the same functions as cookies (e.g., when user information is stored based on pseudonymous online identifiers, also referred to as "user IDs").

Storage Duration: Unless we provide explicit information about the storage duration of permanent cookies (e.g., as part of a so-called cookie opt-in), please assume that the storage duration can be up to two years.

General Notes on Revocation and Objection (Opt-Out): Depending on whether processing is based on consent or legal permission, you have the option to revoke your consent at any time or object to the processing of your data through cookie technologies (collectively referred to as "opt-out"). You can initially declare your objection through the settings of your browser, for example, by disabling the use of cookies (although this may also restrict the functionality of our online offering). In the cookie banner on the website, you can define which cookies you accept or reject.

Processing of Cookie Data Based on Consent: We use a cookie banner through which user consents are obtained and can be managed and revoked by users. The consent declaration is stored to avoid repeating the query and to be able to provide evidence of consent in accordance with legal obligations. Storage can be done server-side and/or in a cookie (so-called opt-in cookie or similar technologies) to associate the consent with a user or their device. Subject to individual information from cookie management service providers, the following notes apply: The storage duration of consent can be up to two years. A pseudonymous user identifier is created, and the time of consent, details of the scope of consent (e.g., which categories of cookies and/or service providers), and the browser, system, and device used are stored.

SSL/TLS Encryption

This website employs SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser's address bar.

Use of Google Maps

This website utilizes the services of Google Maps, allowing us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enabling convenient use of the mapping functionality. By visiting the website, Google receives information that you have accessed the respective subpage of our website. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged into Google, your data is directly associated with your account. If you do not wish this association with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research, and/or the customized design of its website. Such evaluation is carried out, in particular (even for users not logged in), to provide targeted advertising and inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right. For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by Google, as well as additional details on your rights and privacy settings, please visit:

Google Ads

This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you arrived at our website via an ad served by Google, Google Ads will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie, so cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of Ads customers. The information obtained through the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can decline the setting of a cookie required for this purpose – for example, by adjusting your browser settings to disable the automatic setting of cookies or by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain ""

Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want measurement data to be recorded. If you delete all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are referred to as "Google." The obtained statistics help us improve our offering and make it more interesting for you as a user. This website also uses Google Analytics for cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can disable cross-device analysis of your usage in the settings under "My Data," "Personal Data."

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. We would like to point out that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended with the code "_anonymizeIp();" to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses. As a result, IP addresses are truncated before further processing, and any inference to an individual can be ruled out. If data collected about you has a personal reference, this is immediately excluded, and the personal data is promptly deleted. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide further services related to website usage and internet usage to the website operator.

Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. Additionally, you can prevent the use of Google Analytics by clicking on this link: Google Analytics Opt-out. This will place an opt-out cookie on your device, preventing the processing of personal data by Google Analytics. Please note that if you delete all cookies on your device, these opt-out cookies will also be deleted, meaning that you will need to set the opt-out cookies again if you wish to continue preventing this form of data collection. The opt-out cookies are set per browser and device and must be activated separately for each browser, device, or other end device.

Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows us to manage so-called website tags through an interface. This enables us to integrate services such as Google Analytics and other Google marketing services into our online offering. The Tag Manager itself, which implements the tags, does not process any personal data of users. Regarding the processing of personal data of users, please refer to the information on the following Google services. Usage Policies:

Analysis of Newsletter Usage

For the dispatch of our newsletter, we use third-party email marketing services. Therefore, our newsletter may contain a so-called web beacon (pixel) or similar technical means.

Capturing Guest Data for Reservations

Privacy Policy for Reservation Tool "aleno"
To facilitate online reservation requests through our website and manage them efficiently, we utilize the restaurant management system aleno, provided by aleno AG based in Switzerland. We have entered into a data processing agreement with aleno AG for this purpose. The use of aleno allows us to electronically collect personal information about our guests ("Guest Data"). The Guest Data includes the following information:

  • First and Last Name
  • Phone Number and Email Address
  • Number of Persons, Time, and Date of the desired visit
  • Residential Address (optional)
  • Company Name (optional)

The collection of Guest Data enables us to process your reservation request, ensure that the table you desire is reserved under your name, and contact you if necessary. The Guest Data we collect is not automatically deleted after the reservation is completed but is used to create a personal guest profile. Further information about guest profiles is provided in the section "Creation of Guest Profiles" below. You have the right to request the deletion of your Guest Data at any time. If deletion occurs before the reservation date, the corresponding reservation will be automatically canceled.

Online reservation requests become binding only after we have confirmed the table, date, and time via email or phone. To ensure that we do not incur losses in case of an unexcused no-show, we reserve the right to request a credit card as a payment guarantee. In this case, we collect the following information ("Payment Information"):

  • Name of the Credit Card Issuer
  • Name of the Credit Card Holder
  • Expiry Date of the Credit Card
  • Credit Card Number and Verification Code

If you provide your Payment Information during an online reservation request, aleno automatically anonymizes the details. As a result, the Payment Information does not qualify as personal data under the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DSG). The anonymized Payment Information is directly transmitted to aleno AG's hosting provider. Consequently, we do not have access to the anonymized Payment Information, and it is not stored in our system. Any charges are processed directly through aleno AG.

Creation of Guest Profiles

The guest data collected for receiving and managing online reservations are used by us to create a personal profile for our guests within the aleno restaurant management system ("Guest Profile"). This allows us to utilize guest data for personalizing our services. After your visit to our restaurant, we reserve the right to enhance the guest profile with additional personal data to enable further personalization ("Profile Data"). These profile data include the following information: Personal details for individualization (e.g., preferred language, allergies, and special requests), birthday, customer category and status, and details about past restaurant visits (e.g., time and date of the visit, duration of stay, number of guests, table type and location, amount spent, and instances of non-appearance). Additionally, consolidated information about all previous restaurant visits is included, encompassing the total number of visits, total amount spent, and total instances of non-appearance. Creating a guest profile and capturing profile data allows us to tailor our services to your preferences, ensuring that you feel at home with us, and we can accommodate your individual needs. The guest data and profile data contained in the guest profile are deleted or anonymized once they are no longer needed for their original purpose. You have the right to request the deletion of your guest profile and the associated guest data and profile data at any time.

For more information on the collection and handling of your personal data in connection with the use of aleno, please refer to the privacy policy of aleno AG, which can be accessed via the following link: aleno Privacy Policy.
