Since the protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us, we adhere to the legal requirements of the DSG and the EU-GDPR when collecting and processing your personal data.
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your end device with the help of the browser. They do not cause any damage.
If you do not wish this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited.
Collection and processing of personal data
If you contact us by form on the website or by e-mail, the data you provide will be stored by us for two years for processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
You have the possibility to subscribe to our free newsletter. With this newsletter you will receive about four times a year all the latest news and information about our company. To receive our newsletter, you need a valid e-mail address.
We check the e-mail address you entered in our registration mask to ensure that you actually wish to receive newsletters. This is done by sending you an e-mail to the e-mail address you entered, which you can confirm by clicking on a link provided. After confirming the e-mail, you are registered for our newsletter (double opt-in).
Already with the first registration for the newsletter, we store your IP address, the date and time of your registration. This is done for security reasons in case a third party misuses your e-mail address and subscribes to our newsletter without your knowledge. We do not collect and process any other data for the newsletter subscription, the data is used exclusively for the subscription of the newsletter.
The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter mailing can be revoked at any time. For revoking consent, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. Furthermore, there is the possibility to notify the controller in another way.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address, and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be done via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by sending a message to the contact options above.
The newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, we may see when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links contained in the e-mail were called up by the data subject.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the controller in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. You can cancel your subscription to the newsletter at any time. Please send your cancellation to the following e-mail address: email@example.com. We will then immediately delete your data in connection with the newsletter dispatch.
Further links and social networks
Our website also offers the possibility to interact with various social networks via plugins. These are:
- YouTube, operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066 USA.
When you click on a plugin of one of these social networks, it is activated and a connection to the respective server of this network is established. We have no influence on the scope and content of the data that is transmitted to the respective operator of this social network by clicking on the plugin.
Use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
We have integrated Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation, and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites and is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The IP anonymization function is activated for this website. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages takes place from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.
By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Use and application of Google AdWords
The controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in Google’s search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network.
The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and to display third-party advertising on our website.
If a data subject accesses our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie is stored by Google on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. The conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages on our website have been accessed, provided that the cookie has not yet expired.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. Neither our company nor other advertisers of Google AdWords receive information from Google by means of which the data subject could be identified.
By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, for example the Internet pages visited by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link https://www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the internet browsers used by him or her and make the desired settings there.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
Use an application of YouTube-Videos
Google YouTube videos are embedded on our website, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website.
By visiting the website, Google receives information about which of our subpages you have visited. If you are logged in to Google or YouTube, your data will be assigned to your account. If you do not want such an assignment, you must log out. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising purposes, market research and improved design of its web services. Such an evaluation is conducted in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the provision of tailored advertising. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles; this must be clarified with YouTube itself.
Further information can be found at: https://www.Google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
You are generally entitled to the rights of information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and objection.
If you take a measure to enforce your rights under the GDPR listed above, we must comment on the requested measure or comply with the request without undue delay, but no later than one month after receipt of your request.
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection rights have otherwise been violated in some way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.
