Data Protection Statement
The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We therefore process your data exclusively in compliance with the legal regulations (DSGVO, TKG 2003). You have rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and objection, insofar as this does not conflict with a statutory retention obligation. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data-protection laws or your data-protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, please contact us. You can also file a complaint with the regulatory authorities. In Austria, this is the Data Protection Authority.
We provide you with information here about the most important aspects of data processing within our website:
Access data/log files
We (or our webspace provider) collect data about all access to our website (so-called server log files). The access data includes: name of the retrieved webpage, file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
We use the log files only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, safety and optimisation of our website. However, we reserve the right to retrospectively check the log files if, on the basis of specific evidence, legitimate suspicion of unlawful use exists.
All forms on this website are primarily used for visitors to contact us. All data entered will be kept strictly confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties. After submitting a form, the data entered will be stored on the server for processing the request and for follow-up questions and will be sent in an e-mail to the visitor and the site operator for further processing. Optional input fields are offered to facilitate contact and subsequent correspondence. We place an emphasis on designating only those fields as mandatory which provide necessary information.
Inquiries that do not lead to a specific business case with corresponding retention periods are also stored in our business contacts database to facilitate any correspondence in subsequent inquiries and business cases. Furthermore, as far as we can identify legitimate interest in a range of services/products from the data, it will be used for future information. Inactive contacts and inquiry details will be deleted after a certain period of time after the last correspondence according to our data protection policy.
Third-party cookies from Google are also used on our website. These third parties may theoretically set cookies while you are visiting our website, for example, to obtain information that you have accessed our website.
If you do not want this to happen, you can set your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and allows you to grant permission for cookies to be set in individual cases. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website. To find out how to do this in a particular browser, you can use the browser’s built-in help function or alternatively visit www.aboutcookies.org. This site explains step by step how to manage and delete cookies in most popular browsers. Alternatively, we recommend using a browser plugin such as www.ghostery.com to monitor or block tracking cookies.
Web analytics with Google Analytics
We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymisation. This means that the IP address of the users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address submitted by the user’s browser will not be merged with other data by Google.
Users can prevent the setting of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly. Users may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online website and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
For more information about Google’s use of data, setting and opt-out options, please visit Google’s websites: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/ (“How Google uses your data when you use our partner’s sites or apps”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Data use for advertising purposes”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads (“Manage information that Google uses to show you advertising”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ (“Determine what advertising Google shows you”).
The relationship with the web analytics provider is based on standard contractual clauses/a decision of the European Commission (“Privacy Shield”).
The data processing takes place on the basis of the legal regulations of § 96 para. 3 TKG as well as the Art. 6 para. 1 a) (Consent) and/or f) (Legitimate Interest) of the DSGVO. Our interest in the sense of the DSGVO (Legitimate Interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website. User data is stored for a period of 26 months (as currently configured by default with Google)
The easiest way to monitor and/or prevent the tracking of your visit is to use a browser plug-in, such as https://www.ghostery.com/.
