Declaration of our Duty to Provide Information

The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of legal regulations (GDPR, TKG 2003). In this data protection advisory we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing on our website.

Contact with us

If you contact us via the contact form on the website or via email, the data you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and in the event that follow-up questions are considered useful. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

Cookies

Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your mobile device using the browser. They cause no damage, and do not compromise security.

We use cookies to make our website user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us.

If you do not wish this, you can set your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be limited.

Web Analytics

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics, Google LLC (“Google”), Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Cookies are used for this purpose, which enable an analysis of the use of the website by your users. The information generated in this way is transferred to the provider’s server and stored there.

You can prevent this by setting your browser so that no cookies are stored. We have concluded a corresponding contract with the provider for order data processing. Your IP address is recorded but pseudonymised immediately (by deleting the last 8 bits). This means that only a rough localization is possible.

Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 Paragraph 3 TKG and Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit a (consent) and/or legitimate interest as defined by the GDPR. Our concern in the sense of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised.

Google also offers a deactivation option for the most popular browsers, giving you more control over what information Google collects and processes. If you activate this option, no information about your visit to the website will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services that we may use. For more information about the opt-out option provided by Google and how to enable this option, please follow this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Using Google Maps

We use “Google Maps” from Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

Each time you access the Google Maps component, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data when you view the page that includes the Google Maps component. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted when you close your browser, but expires after a certain time, unless you delete it manually beforehand.

If you do not agree to this processing of your data, it is possible to deactivate the “Google Maps” service and thus prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the JavaScript function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps” or only to a limited extent.

The use of “Google Maps” and the information obtained via “Google Maps” is subject to Google’s Terms of Service and the Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service.

Your Rights

In principle, you have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, complaints can be directed to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the Datenschutzbehörde.
