We have made our best effort to explain this important technical information as clearly and effectively possible for your understanding.
AUTOMATIC DATA STORAGE
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically created and stored.
If you visit our website as it is 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 visited subpages, details of your browser (eg Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.) and date and time. We do not use this information and usually do not disclose it, but we cannot rule out that it will be seen in the event of unlawful behaviour.
STORING PERSONAL DATA
Personal data that you submit to us electronically on this website, such as name, e-mail address, address or other personal information in the course of submitting a form or comments in the blog, will be transmitted by us together with the time and IP address. Address used only for the purpose specified is kept safe and not disclosed to third parties.
We only use your personal data for communication with visitors who expressly request contact and for the processing of the services and products offered on this website. We will not disclose your personal information without consent, but we cannot rule out that it will be seen in the event of unlawful behaviour.
If you send us personal data by e-mail – outside of this website – we cannot guarantee secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential information via email.
You have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and opposition. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can lodge a complaint to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the Data Protection Authority whose websites you can find at https://www.dsb.gv.at/.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
A cookie is a short data packet that is exchanged between the web browser and the web server. The packet is completely meaningless to to the server and is only used for the purpose of the web application.
There are two types of cookies: First-party cookies are created by our website, and third-party cookies are created by other websites (eg Google Analytics).
There are three categories of cookies: essential cookies to ensure basic functionality of the website, functional cookies to ensure website performance and targeted cookies to enhance the user experience.
If you do not want this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the your cookies settings, therefore being able to allow them on an individual basis.
You can always delete cookies that are already on your computer or even disable cookies. The procedure for doing differs from browser to browser; it is best to look for the instructions in Google for the term “delete cookies chrome” or “disable cookies chrome” in the case of a Chrome browser. For any other browsers, simply exchange the word “chrome” for the name of your browser. E.g. edge, firefox, safari.
We use Google Analytics from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to statistically analyze visitor data. Google Analytics uses targeted cookies.
Our concern in the sense of the DSGVO is the improvement of our service and our web appearance. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymized. The data processing takes place on the basis of the legal regulations of the § 96 Abs 3 TKG as well as the kind 6 EU-DSGVO Abs 1 a) (consent) and / or f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO.
Deactivation of data collection by Google Analytics
You may prevent the collection, by Google, of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
GOOGLE ANALYTICS ADDITIONAL DATA PROCESSING
We have entered into a direct customer agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics by accepting the “Data Processing Supplement” in Google Analytics.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS IP ANONYMIZATION
We have implemented the IP address anonymization of Google Analytics on this website. This feature has been developed by Google to enable the site to comply with applicable privacy practices and recommendations of local data protection authorities when they prohibit storage of the full IP address. The anonymization or masking of the IP takes place as soon as the IP addresses arrive in the Google Analytics data collection network and before any storage or processing of the data takes place.
More information on IP anonymization can be found at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en
