  1. Falken Air offers paragliding tandem flights in Saalbach-Hinterglemm & Zell am See. Falken Air only offers the services of state-certified, experienced tandem pilots and the pilot is fully liable as a contractual partner of the tandem passenger. The tandem passenger and the Falken Air pilot fill out the flight ticket when taking the gondola up the mountain. This ticket is the invoice in the same sense.
  2. All flight services provided by Falken Air are subject to Austrian law, as well as the provisions of aviation law and the following conditions.
  3. Before the start of the flight, the passenger (or a legal guardian or an adult accompanying person if children would like to fly with us) must carefully read the contract of carriage and confirm it with their individual signature. Shortly before the start of the tandem flight, the passenger receives a briefing on the take-off procedures from the Falken Air pilot. If the passenger does not understand this briefing or if further explanations are necessary, then he must inform the pilot of this lack of clarity immediately.
  4. Obligation to report health restrictions: The passenger must report all physical restrictions to the Falken Air pilot in advance. In any case, a passenger must be able to walk a few steps with the pilot as soon as the start process of the tandem flight is initiated. Heart disease, seasickness, problems with the spine, intervertebral discs, psychological defects such as impaired consciousness, high blood pressure etc. must be reported to the pilot. In addition, alcohol consumption must be announced within the last 12 hours. If the passenger has had a serious accident within the last 12 months, this event must also be reported to the provider Falken Air. If there is any uncertainty about the fitness to fly, Falken Air undertakes to inform the passenger about all the necessary requirements.
  5. Insurance & Liability: Falken Air has taken out insurance to cover all of the passenger’s claims under the liability provisions of the Austrian Aviation Act. There is an express exclusion of liability for claims that go beyond the legally required coverage.Objects carried on a paragliding flight (such as cash, cell phones, cameras, glasses and other valuables) must be properly secured or stowed. Falken Air assumes no liability in the event that these items are lost or damaged. Falken Air pilots cannot be held responsible for any damage or accidents that occur on the way to the launch sites and the agreed meeting point.Exclusion or limitation of liability also apply accordingly in favor of the tandem pilot and authorized representatives of Falken Air. Falken Air pilots are only obliged to pay compensation if the damage was caused by a grossly negligent or willful act / omission of the tandem pilot. Falken Air’s liability is limited to the items brought by the passenger up to the amount of the insurance taken out for them. Claims that go beyond this can only be asserted in the event of willful intent or gross negligence.
  6. Equipment: The passenger undertakes to undertake the tandem flight only with appropriate clothing (weatherproof and windproof clothing, suitable for soiling), ankle-high, sturdy hiking shoes as well as gloves and sunglasses.Every Falken Air pilot provides a protective helmet and necessary flight equipment
  7. Appointments & payment: Falken Air offers tandem flights in Saalbach-Hinterglemm all year round. The passenger declares that participation in a tandem flight is solely for personal interest. The costs for the journey to the airfield are to be borne by the tandem passenger. The costs for mountain railway rides and the like are not included in the ticket price. All other travel costs that may arise due to weather conditions are also not included in the price. If fixed dates are not met, the entire fee for the flight must be paid.The pilot determines the handling of the flight. He is always responsible for the execution of the flight.We expressly point out that despite fixed dates, there is no entitlement to the implementation of tandem flights if the prevailing weather conditions in the flight area do not allow this. In the event of a postponement or short-term cancellation, there is no entitlement to compensation, reimbursement or reimbursement of other expenses incurred. The right to catch up on the flight remains, however.Weather-related cancellations do not have to be proven – the professional assessment of the responsible pilot is sufficient.The stated flight duration is an estimate. This flight duration can vary. The flight route, the landing site and the flight times can be changed at any time, primarily for safety or operational reasons, without the passenger being entitled to compensation.When booking a tandem flight, the price of the flight must be paid in cash to the pilot immediately after the flight has taken place. A voucher can also be used to pay the flight price. When you decide to pay for your flight or flight voucher via PayPal, you are responsible for paying the transaction fees defined by PayPal.
  8. Validity of the purchased vouchers: The person who orders the voucher from Falken Air on the website using the form undertakes to pay the purchase price within 7 days (without deduction) after receiving the voucher.Purchased vouchers expire 24 months after the date of issue. Special regulations are possible in individual cases by arrangement. The preferred means of payment (voucher or cash) must be brought with you on the day of the flight and handed over to the pilot.Right of withdrawal: According to the Consumer Protection Act, claims for repayment of the purchase price exist within 14 days of receipt of the voucher without giving reasons. It is sufficient to return the voucher to Falken Air within this period.
  9. Cancellation costs: The passenger can withdraw from the agreed flight date at any time by sending an email to josef.nindl@gmail.com. Cancellations up to 4 days before the booked date are free of charge, from 3 days to 24 hours before cancellation costs of 50% are charged. Vouchers and tickets become invalid after cancellation and become valid again after receipt of the cancellation payment. A refund of the remaining purchase price is not possible. For all withdrawals within 24 hours, the cancellation costs are 100%.
  10. Right to use image and film material: The passenger agrees that all photos and video recordings made during the tandem flight may be used by Falken Air without restriction. Falken Air holds the copyright.
  11. Risk information: We point out that with tandem paragliding, even with the greatest care, accidents with significant consequences of injury (e.g. sprains, broken bones, spinal injuries, concussions, in extreme cases death, etc.) cannot be ruled out. There is an increased risk especially during take-off and landing due to incorrect landing, occurrence or falls.
  12. Final provisions: After purchasing a ticket from Falken Air, after redeeming a voucher or after being issued orally, the passenger has concluded a contract with Falken Air. Austrian law applies exclusively to all disputes arising from this contract. The place of jurisdiction is the district or regional court responsible for 5700 Zell am See. Should parts of one of these provisions of Falken Air be ineffective, the effectiveness of the remaining provisions remains unaffected.

Through the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our site and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 (1f) GDPR.

We use the so-called two-click solution. When you visit our site, no personal information is passed on to the provider of the plug-ins initially. The provider of the plug-in can be identified by its initial letter or logo on the button. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only after you click on the marked field and activate it does the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online service. In addition, the log data mentioned above is transferred. This includes, for example:

– the address of the website where the activated link is located,
– the date and time of the visit to the website and the activation of the link,
– information about the browser and the operating system used,
– the IP address

By activating the plug-in, personal data will be transmitted by you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (with American providers in the USA).

If you are registered with and logged in to the respective social media provider at this time, the provider can assign the visit to our website and your interaction with the social media element (e.g. clicking the “Like” button) to your user profile (e.g. to your Facebook account).

We have no control over the data collected or the processing of that data, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purpose of the processing or the retention periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the social media provider. For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the social media provider, please refer to the privacy policies of that provider (see links above). You will also find further information about your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy.

The servers of social media services are located in the US and other countries outside the European Union. The data can therefore also be processed by the provider of the social media service in countries outside the European Union. Please note that companies in these countries are subject to a data protection law which generally does not protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the Member States of the European Union.

Conversion tracking

We use external advertising partners to draw attention to our site with the help of advertising material on external websites. We also use marketing tools to determine how successful the individual advertising measures are (“conversion tracking”).
We intend to show you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting to you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1f) GDPR.
To this end, our advertising partners set cookies and web beacons (see above), by means of which certain parameters can be measured to determine success, e.g. the display of ads or clicks by the users. These cookies are not intended to identify you personally. As long as the cookie is valid, the affiliate will be able to recognize that you have clicked on an ad and reached a specific landing page (e.g. form entry, confirmation page, newsletter signup). The affiliate uses the cookie to generate conversion statistics. These statistics include the number of users who clicked on one of our ads. In addition, it counts how many people have reached a landing page that has been tagged with a “conversion tag” (remarketing tag, see above). However, the statistics do not contain any data that identifies you.

We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We receive only statistical evaluations from our advertising partners. Based on these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material and cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.
Due to the conversion tracking tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the server of the advertising partners. We have no control over the extent and continued use of data collected through the use of this tool by the advertising partners. By integrating the marketing tools, the advertising partner receives the information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website or have clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered with our advertising partner (e.g. Facebook or Google), the advertising partner can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered or are not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will collect your IP address and store it.

We use conversion tracking from the following advertising partners:

Google Adwords
Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountainview, California 94043, USA
For more information about Google’s privacy policy, see http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats.html. Alternatively, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website at http://www.networkadvertising.org. Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US Framework. You can prevent conversion tracking with Google Adwords by disabling conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the www.googleadservices.com domain, https://www.google.com/settings/ads, which will be deleted if you delete your cookies or by permanent deactivation in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browser under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin

Facebook
Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave., Palo Alto, California 94304, USA

In doing so, we set a persistent cookie that will ensure that your opt-out will be recognized and taken into consideration during future visits to our website. Please note that it has to be reset after deleting all cookies. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website with a specific device or browser. However, to prevent data collection on different devices, the opt-out must be performed on all devices/browsers used.

Use of Google Remarketing

Our websites use so-called “retargeting tags” to place interest-based advertising on third-party websites. The legal basis is our legitimate interest in implementing advertising measures in accordance with Art. 6 (1f) GDPR.
A retargeting tag is a JavaScript element that is placed in the source code of the website. If a user visits a page on a website that contains a retargeting tag, an online advertising provider (“retargeting provider”, e.g. Google, Facebook) places a cookie on that user’s computer and assigns the user to retargeting target group lists. The respective retargeting providers use the cookie to collect interest data (e.g. the pages visited on our website or search queries that have been entered) using pseudonyms. This information is then used by the retargeting providers to display interest-based advertising. In doing so, no direct personal data will be stored and no user profiles with your personal data will be created. However, the retargeting provider may be able to identify you and associate your usage behaviour on our website with you, especially if you are a registered user of the retargeting provider (e.g. if you have a Google or Facebook account).

We use the following retargeting providers:
Facebook Retargeting
Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA
Your IP address and the pages you view on the GoEuro website are sent to Facebook. You can find more information about the data processing by Facebook and your rights and ways to protect your personal data in Facebook’s privacy policy at: http://en-gb.facebook.com/about/privacy/
If you do not want Facebook to assign the collected information to your Facebook account, you can deactivate the retargeting features here: https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads
To do this, you must be logged in to Facebook.
