We are responsible for the processing of your personal data. If you require further information, please feel free to contact us any time. You can find our contact details at the end of this Data Protection Declaration.

1. Personal data

Personal data comprise all data that contain information about a person’s personal or factual circumstances, such as their name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, age, sex, social insurance number, video recordings, IP address, photos, etc.

We kindly ask you to notify us in case of any change of your personal data.

2. Legal bases

We only collect, process and use your personal data if necessary for us to fulfill our contract or a legal obligation, or if you provide these data to us voluntarily. For any other processing of data beyond that, we obtain your consent before processing the data. Should our legitimate interest in processing the data outweigh any interest in data protection, the data may be processed without your consent.

Upon your visit of our website, we process your personal data due to our legitimate interest in providing to you the contents of our website. Insofar as you interact with plug-ins (by clicking on these plug-ins, for instance) we consider this as your consent to using these services and the processing of data associated therewith as explained in this Data Protection Declaration.

3. Purposes

We will use the data provided to us mainly for the purpose of fulfilling our contract, initiating a contract, complying with legal obligations and presenting our website. In addition to that, we use your data in order to be able to offer you further services.

4. Your rights

As the person concerned, you are entitled to obtain information about the data we have stored about you, their origin and recipients and the purpose of their processing any time. Furthermore, you have the right to object to and limit the processing of your data and/or request that your personal data be corrected, transferred, and blocked or deleted in the case of incorrect or inadmissible data. You have the right to withdraw any previously granted consent for the processing of your personal data any time. These rights are conferred on you due to the General Data Protection Regulation.

If you are of the opinion that our processing your personal data violates current data protection law, you may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authority. In Austria, this is the Data Protection Office.

5. Data Security

Your personal data are protected with the aid of appropriate preventative measures, both on an organizational and technical level. These measures are primarily aimed at protecting data from unauthorized, illegal and, sometimes, accidental access, processing, loss, use and manipulation.

Despite our maintaining a reasonable degree of care at all times, we cannot exclude that personal data are viewed and used by others.

Please keep in mind that we bear no liability whatsoever for the disclosure of information that is the result of data transfer errors not caused by us and/or unauthorized access by third parties (hacker attacks on email accounts or telephones, fax interception, etc.).

6. Transfer of date to third parties

In order to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations, it may be necessary to forward your data to processors. When processing your personal data, processors are bound by our instructions, processing data only to the extent that is required to fulfill their tasks. Our processors are, for instance, tax advisers, courts, authorities, lawyers, chartered accountants, external service companies, etc.

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. our interest in analyzing, optimizing and economically operating our offer, as set out under Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f, GDPR), we integrate content or service offers by third companies in our offer.

Google Analytics is a service offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Most importantly, Google uses the data and information obtained in this way to evaluate how our website is used and to provide further services connected with the usage of our website.

Google Analytics sets cookies to identify users. By setting a cookie, Google is able to analyze the usage of our website.

For the web analysis through Google Analytics we use the add-on “_gat._anonymizeIp”. With the aid of this extension, the IP address is abbreviated and anonymized by Google so that identification is not possible.
On our website, we also offer a search engine created with Google Custom Search. It enables you to search our website via a service provided by Google. If you use this service, personal data are also transmitted to Google
