Data privacy

Important information

Data privacy policy

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore we process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (GDPR, TKG 2003). The following information further explains the most important aspects of data processing within our website.

Contact with us

If you contact us by e-mail, your data will be stored just for processing the request and allow for the case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

Data storage

The data provided by you is required to answer the requests and questions you send us by e-mail. A transfer of data to third parties will not take place.


Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device using the browser. They do no harm. We use cookies to make our offer user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
If you do not want this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the cookies and so that you may allow or disallow it in individual cases. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

Web analysis

Our website uses the features of the web analysis service Google Analytics, Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA94043, USA. For this purpose, cookies are used that allow an analysis of the use of the website by users. The information generated thereby is transmitted to the server of the provider and stored there. You can prevent this by setting your browser so that no cookies are stored. We have a special contract for data processing with the provider.
Your IP address is detected but anonymized immediately (e.g. by deleting the last 8 bits). As a result, only a rough localization is possible. The relationship to the web analysis provider is based on an adequacy decision by the European Commission with the USA: "Privacy Shield". The data processing takes place on the basis of the legal regulations of section 96 paragraph 3 TKG as well as article 6 paragraph 1 lit a (consent) and lit f (legitimate interest) of the GDPR.
In the sense of the GDPR (legitimate interest), our concern is the improvement of our offer and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is anonymized.

Your rights

You have the principal rights for disclosure, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, withdrawal and objection. If you think that the processing of your data is in breach of the data protection law or that your data protection rights have otherwise been violated, you can file a complaint with the regulating authority. In Austria, this is the Data Protection Authority.
