Thank you for your interest in our website. Protecting your personal data is very important to us. We would like to take this opportunity to explain how data privacy works at our company. As you would expect, we comply with the legal provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Austrian Act concerning the Protection of Personal Data, the Austrian Telecommunications Act and other applicable data protection legislation. So you can trust us with your personal data! They are encrypted by digital security systems and transmitted to us. Our websites are protected by technology which prevents damage, destruction or unauthorised access to data.
Data subject to privacy regulations
The data subject to privacy regulations are personal data. In accordance with the GDPR, these are individual pieces of information about personal or factual circumstances which can be attributed to a specific natural person. They include information such as name, postal address, email address and telephone number, and they may also include usage data such as your IP address.
Scope of data collection and storage
It is not generally necessary for you to supply your personal data in order to use our website. However, in order for us to actually provide our services, we may require your personal data. This applies in particular to responding to individual queries.
The following data may be collected and stored
• Website visited
• Time website was accessed
• Amount of transmitted data in bytes
• Source / page from which you accessed the site
• Browser used
• Operating system used
• IP address used
If you request a service or place an order with us, in principle we will only collect and store your personal data inasmuch as this is necessary for the provision of the service or for processing the order. For this purpose, it may be necessary to send your personal data to companies used by us to provide services or process orders.
We will not send your personal data to third parties without your express consent, unless this is required in order to provide the service or process the order (as stated above). We will also only send your personal data to state institutions and authorities authorised to access them in accordance with our disclosure obligations or if a court order obliges us to provide access to these data. If the latter occurs, we will inform the affected data subjects immediately that their data have been sent to these bodies.
Data collection through use of Google Analytics
The information generated by these files about your use of the website is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. Google uses this information to evaluate how our website is used and to compile reports on website activity for the website operators. If required by law, or if third parties process these data on Google’s behalf, Google will send these data to these third parties. Use is anonymised or pseudonymised.

Collection and storage of usage data
To optimise our website, we collect and store data such as the date and time the site was accessed and the page from which you accessed our site. This is anonymised, and the user of the site is not personally identified. In some circumstances, user profiles are created using a pseudonym. But even in this case, no connection is made between the natural person behind the pseudonym and the usage data collected. We collect these data solely for statistical purposes in order to optimise our website and to make our online services even more appealing. Data are collected solely in anonymised or pseudonymised form, and there is no way to identify you as a natural person from these data.
Using data for specific purposes
We follow the principle of using data for specific purposes, and we only collect, process and store personal data for purposes which are legitimate and which have the appropriate legal basis.
We also take in-house data privacy very seriously. We have imposed obligations for confidentiality and compliance with data protection regulations on our staff and the service providers we commission.
Right of access, right to erasure, right to object, and contact details
At all times, and within the bounds of reason, you have the right of access and the right to erasure of your personal data we have processed. In addition, you have the right to have these data rectified or blocked and the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time without giving any reason. In this case, we will immediately stop processing your personal data and destroy the data in our possession so that they cannot be retrieved. Please note that this will preclude further cooperation or make it impossible for us to provide you with our services.
