DATA PRIVACY STATEMENT
Protection of your private sphere is very important to us.
We will hereinafter inform you about how we will ensure the protection of your data on our website:
You may in principle use the website without needing to register as a user. No software or hardware is deployed to capture e-mail addresses or other user data referenced to the person.
Personal data will not be captured unless with your express consent. Your data will always remain confidential and will be used only for the purpose for which you made them available to us.
You are entitled to request information on your personal data we have stored, free of charge. Statutory provisions furthermore entitle you to correct, block or delete these data.
This website contains links to other websites or social media pages. Please note that third party websites you may reach by clicking on such links will have their own data protection regulations. Remember to check the data protection regulations when you use such websites.
The website, e-mail traffic, online services, advertising and interactive applications may use “cookies” to optimise our services.
What is a “cookie”?
A “cookie” is a sequence of characters we transmit via our Web server to the cookie file of your browser on the hard disk of your PC. This allows our website to recognise you when another connection is made between our Web server and your browser. The main purpose of cookies is the recognition of visitors to the website, allowing our Web server to present you with a website more tailored to meet your needs.
This website uses two types of cookies:
- Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that remain in your browser’s cookie file until you leave our website. Certain applications or functions of the website need these cookies to ensure proper functionality.
- Permanent cookies: We may use permanent cookies to improve user friendliness (e.g. for offering optimal navigation). These are cookies that remain in your browser’s cookie file for extended periods. The length of period will depend on your Internet browser settings. Permanent cookies will send information to your Web server in the course of every visit. Permanent cookies are also known as Tracking cookies.
Many publications are available should you wish to learn more about cookies. For example: http://www.allaboutcookies.org
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. By activating the IP anonymization on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data provided by Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full. In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by using the link below (http: // tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en) to download and install the available browser plugin.
This website uses Google Maps by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. You will, by using this website, agree that Google Inc, their representatives and third parties may capture, process and utilise your automatically captured data.
Please refer to Google’s information on data protection at http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy for information on the purpose and scope of Google’s capturing, processing and utilising your data and your corresponding rights and optional settings for the protection of your privacy.
When you call up a single page, Web servers will by default capture in a log file the file name called up, the date and time of such access, the transmitted data volume, any error messages and possibly the operating system and browser of your PC and the website from where you are visiting us. We use the log file data for the purposes mentioned under “Use of Google Analytics” and to ensure system reliability and protect against abuse (e.g. recognising and defending from hacker attacks).
Data protection guideline amendments
We reserve the right to adapt these data protection guidelines to remain compliant with regulatory requirements. We recommend that you remain up to date on the protection of your data we capture by regular reference to these data protection guidelines. Continuing use of this website or genuine business relationships will signify your agreement with these data protection guidelines and their currency.
You will in principle have a right to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, rescission and objection. Should you be of the opinion that processing of your data is in breach of Data Privacy Laws or that your data privacy claims have in any way been violated, you have the right to complain to the regulatory authority. This will in Austria be the Data Protection Authority.
