Data Processing & Data Storage

The protection of your personal data is a top priority for us. As a consequence, we handle your data exclusively in strict compliance with data privacy laws (DSGVO, TKG 2003). In the following data privacy policy, we inform you about the most important aspects of how data is handled within the framework of our website.

If you have transmitted your personally identifiable information through this website or by email, such information will only be used in order to conduct correspondence with you as well as for those purposes for which you provided that information. We assure you that your personally identifiable information will not be shared with third parties unless the law requires us to do so.

The data you have provided will only be stored for 6 months or until such point as the purpose for which it was shared has been achieved. Insofar as the law requires that data be stored for a specific period of time, we will comply with such legal provisions. Should you no longer agree to our storing your personally identifiable data, pursuant to your request we will delete such data. If your personal data has changed in the meantime, we will correct that data based upon the information you provide us.

SSL Encryption

For security reasons and in order to protect transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries which are sent to us using the contact form, this site uses SSL encryption. You will be able to recognize the secure connection when the URL in your browser changes from "http://" to "https://", also generally accompanied by a green padlock symbol in your browser toolbar. When SSL encryption is activated, the data you share with us cannot be read or stolen by third parties.

Your rights

You have the right, at any time and at no cost, to receive information about your personally identifiable data stored by us, about the source and recipient, the purpose for which it was collected, as well as to demand the correction, blockage or deletion of such data.

If you think that the processing of your data violates the data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated, you can complain to the relevant supervisory authority. In Austria this is the „Datenschutzbehörde“ (data protection authority).

Server Logfiles

The provider of our website automatically stores information in so-called server log files for certain services on the server on which our website is hosted. All log files are rotated daily, the logs from the previous day are archived and are then available for the specified retention time. However, these are purely internal log files to which we as the customer have no access. This data is not merged with personal data sources.

Google Analytics

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyze your use of the website. In general, the information about your use of this website generated by this cookie is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymization has been activated on this website, meaning that Google will abbreviate, and thus create a pseudonym for your IP address within member states of the European Union as well as in other states within the European Economic Area which are a party to the agreement. As a consequence, only very general localization is possible. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address first transmitted to a server of Google in the USA, where it is then shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze use of the website, compile reports about website activity, as well as provide the website operator with further information about use of the website and the Internet.

Data is processed in accordance with the legal provisions of § 96 par. 3 TKG as well as art. 6 par. 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) of GDPR.

Our interest consistent with GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our web presence. Since the private realm of our users is important to us, user data is associated with a pseudonym as described above.

The IP address provided by your browser to Google Analytics is not compiled with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies via the privacy settings of this website. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Further information about our conditions of use and privacy policy can be found on the respective Google pages. You should also be aware that this website uses the Google Analytics code that automatically anonymizes IP addresses and thus guarantees anonymous compilation of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

By means of IP masking, any personally identifiable information will no longer be processed. Nonetheless, we have entered into a contract with the provider to process information pertinent to our business matters. Our relationship with this web analysis provider is commensurate with the resolution entered into between the European Commission and the USA: known as the “EU-US Privacy Shield”.

Preventing data collection

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by changing your data protection settings for this website. To do this, use the button at the top of this page to call up your data protection settings and click on "Use without external services". This will deactivate all cookies for this website. Objection to data collection by Google Analytics.

Data-privacy contract

We have entered into a data-privacy contract to that effect with the newsletter provider in question.

YouTube

Our website uses a plug-in for the Google-operated service YouTube. The operator of this service is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. This means, if you visit one of our pages that feature the YouTube plug-in, a connection will immediately be established to the YouTube servers. This will inform the YouTube server which of our pages you are visiting as well as those you have visited. If you are logged in to your own YouTube account, you will enable YouTube to sync your surfing behavior with your personal profile. You can prevent this from happening by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

Further information about how user data is used as well as the data privacy policy can be found on the pertinent webpages of Google.

Google Maps

This website uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this page has no influence on this data transmission.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and to make it easier to find the places we have indicated on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
