Data protection ordinance
We have prepared this data privacy statement in order to explain to you in accordance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation which information we collect, how we use data and what decision options you as a visitor to this website has.
Unfortunately, it's in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we have made every effort to describe the most important matters as simply and clearly as possible.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites these days, certain information is automatically generated and stored, so also on this website.
When you visit our website just as you do now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as the IP address of your device, the addresses of the subpages visited, details about your browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Edge,...) and the date and time. We do not use these data and normally do not pass them on, but cannot exclude the possibility that these data will be examined in case of any illegal action.
Storage of personal data
Personal data which you transmit to us electronically on this website, such as name, email address, address or other personal information as part of submitting a form or comments in the blog, will only be used by us together with the time and the IP address for the purpose indicated, stored securely and not passed on to third parties.
We thus use your personal data only for communicating with those visitors who expressly request contact and for the transaction of services and products offered on this website. We do not pass on your data without consent, but cannot exclude the possibility that these data will be examined in case of any illegal action.
If and when you send us personal data by email – and thus separately from this website – we cannot guarantee secure transmission and the protection of your data. We recommend you never transfer confidential data by email unencrypted.
You have the principal rights to disclosure, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, withdrawal and objection. If you think that the processing of your data is in breach of the data protection law or that your data protection rights have otherwise been violated, you can file a complaint with the regulating authority. In Austria, this is the Austrian Data Protection Authority, whose website you can find at https://www.dsb.gv.at/.
TLS-encryption with https
We use https to securely transfer data in the Internet. By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for the secure data transfer in the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can see that this protection of data transfer is being used by the small lock icon on the top left in the browser and the use of the https protocol as part of our Internet address.
Our website uses HTTP-cookies to store user-specific data.
A cookie is a short data packet, which is exchanged between web browser and web server, but which is completely insignificant for these and only becomes significant for the web application, e.g. an online shop, for example the content of a virtual shopping cart.
There are two types of cookies: First-party cookies are generated by our website, third-party cookies are generated by other websites (e.g. Google Analytics).
We distinguish between three categories of cookies: cookies which are absolutely necessary for ensuring basic features of the website, functional cookies for ensuring the performance of the website, and target-oriented cookies for improving the user experience.
If you do not want this, you can set your browser so that it informs you of the setting of cookies and lets you permit this only in individual cases.
You can delete cookies which are already on your computer or deactivate cookies at any time. The process for doing this differs according to browser, it's best you search for instructions in Google using the search term "delete cookies chrome" or "deactivate cookies chrome" if you are using a Chrome browser or replace the word "chrome" with the name of your browser, e.g. edge, firefox, safari.
Google Analytics data privacy statement
On this website, we use Google Analytics der Firma Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) in order to statistically analyse visitor data. In doing so, Google Analytics uses target-oriented cookies.
It is our objective for the purpose of the GDPR to improve our offer and our website. As the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data will be pseudonymised. Data processing takes place based on the legal requirements in § 96 Sect. 3 TKG (Telecommunications Act) as well as Art 6 EU-GDPR Sect. 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (justified interest) of the GDPR.
Deactivation of data collection by Google Analytics
You can prevent Google from collecting and processing data generated by the cookie about your usage of the website by using the following link and downloading the available browser plug-in and installing it: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Google Analytics data processing amendment
We have concluded a direct customer agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics, by having accepted the "data processing amendment" in Google Analytics.
You can find more about the data processing amendment for Google Analytics here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3379636?hl=en&utm_id=ad
Google Analytics IP-anonymisation
We have implemented the IP address anonymisation by Google Analytics on this website. This feature has been developed by Google so that this website can comply with the current data protection regulations and recommendations of the local data protection authorities, if and when these prohibit the storage of the complete IP address. The anonymisation or masking of the IP takes place as soon as the IP addresses reach the Google Analytics data collection network and before any storage or processing of the data takes place.
More information about IP-anonymisation can be found onhttps://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en.
Google Analytics deactivation link
If you click on the following deactivation link, you can prevent Google from recording further visits to this website. Note: The deletion of cookies, the use of the incognito/private mode in your browser, or the use of another browser will lead to data being collected once more.
