Data protection/Legal information



The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We process your data exclusively on the basis of the statutory provisions (GDPR, Telecommunications Act of 2003 [TKG 2003]). In this data protection information, we inform you of the most important aspects of the data processing in connection with our website.

Contacting us: If you contact us using a form on the website or by email, the data you enter is stored by us for six months for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for any follow-up questions. We do not share this data with other parties without your permission.

Cookies: Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device with the help of your browser. They do not cause any harm. We use cookies to make our web offering more user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These allow us to identify your browser during the next visit. If you do not wish this, you can configure your browser to inform you when cookies are about to be set, allowing you to grant or refuse permission in each individual case. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be reduced.

Your Cookie Settings


Where can I disable/delete cookies in my browser in general? Cookies can be disabled in the settings of the browser. Cookies that have already been set can be deleted using the function History/Clear Browsing Data (then select “Cookies” here). Precise instructions for disabling cookies in various browsers can be found on the website http://www.aboutcookies.org/.
Web analysis: Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google-Analytics. This service uses cookies that permit an analysis of the use of the website by our users. The information generated in this way is transmitted to the server of the provider and saved there. We have concluded a corresponding contract with the provider for data processing. Your IP address is collected but immediately pseudonymized (e.g. via deletion of the last 8 bits). After this measure, only very rough localization is possible. The relationship with the web analysis provider is based on a data processing agreement with Google, which you can view here. The data processing takes place on the basis of the statutory provisions of Article 96 para. 3 TKG as well as Article 6 para. 1 item a (Consent) and/or item f (legitimate interest) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest in accordance with the GDPR is the improvement of our offering and our web presence. Because the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymized. The user data is retained for a period of 14 months.

Your rights: You have the fundamental rights of information, rectification, erasure, restriction, data portability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection rights have been otherwise violated, you can lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the Data Protection Authority [Datenschutzbehörde].
