Collection and processing of personal data:

When you visit our web pages for mere information retrieval, that is, if you do not otherwise provide us with personal data, the personal data that your browser transmits to our servers are collected for technical reasons. When you view our web pages, we collect the following data, which are technically necessary to display the web page to you and to ensure its stability and security (in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) sentence 1 GDPR), including traceability in the event of errors and sustainable error correction:

Visited web pages, date and time of access, amount of data sent in bytes, web page from which the request originated (source/referral from which you accessed the page), browser used including language and version, operating system used, IP address used.

For this purpose, log files are created. The data collected in this process serve:

  • Control to prevent and remedy unlawful use of the website content
  • Improvement of the website
    Statistical evaluations

To perform statistical analysis of visits to the website, we use the free web analytics software Advanced Web Statistics. Information about this can also be found at http://www.advancedwebstats.com. This software analyzes the log files created by the web server based on website accesses. No cookies are used. The statistical analysis is based on the log files, which contain IP addresses, date and time, browser type and version, computer operating system, and the web page from which the request originated. The log files are automatically deleted from the server after 10 days, and the data is anonymized and stored as an anonymized web access statistics for the duration of the operation of the website on this server. Unlike other statistical programs, the web analysis software Advanced Web Statistics does not use cookies and does not transmit data to a foreign server. The software is installed on our own and rented servers located in Austria, and there is no transfer of data abroad. When the website is deleted from our servers, the anonymized data from the web analytics software is also automatically deleted.


Cookies are small text files that are stored in the memory of your device, which you use to access the Internet, and are associated with the browser you use. In order to make the use of our web pages more effective and user-friendly, cookies are stored on your device when you visit our web pages, through which information can also flow to us (depending on the cookie). However, cookies cannot execute programs or transmit malware to your device.

Our website uses:

Transient cookies, which are automatically deleted after closing the browser or logging out. This includes session cookies, which store a session ID that allows different requests from your browser to be assigned to the same session. As a result, your device/computer can be recognized when accessing the website again.

To determine how you use cookies, adjustments can be made in the respective browser settings. For example, you can choose to reject third-party cookies or all cookies. However, this may impair the functionality of websites.

Furthermore, personal information such as your name, address, telephone number, or email address is not collected unless you voluntarily and actively provide this information in the designated areas (e.g., during newsletter registration, information request via a contact form, specific form fields, or registration forms on the respective website, etc.). The personal data you provide will only be processed for the purpose of addressing your concerns or answering your inquiries. In general, these data will not be transmitted to third parties (not mentioned herein).

Contacting us via email, letter, telephone, or fax:

When you contact us, the data you provide (name, address, telephone number, email address, and if applicable, case-specific data) will be stored in order to answer your questions, process your concerns promptly, and establish contact with you again. The data generated in this context will be deleted unless a contract is concluded between us and the storage is no longer necessary, or the data processing is limited to the legal minimum if statutory retention periods apply. In the event of a contract being concluded, the data processing provisions in the contract shall be observed.

Data you transmit to us

in the context of newsletter registration or through an information request via the contact form or through other specific form fields or registration forms on the respective website

If data processing continues, it will be limited to the necessary minimum and the storage duration will be reduced to the absolute necessary period. In the event of a contract being concluded, the data processing provisions in the contract shall be observed.

Integration of social networks (social media plug-ins):

Our websites provide a connection to social networks using social media plug-ins. These plug-ins are initially deactivated when you visit our websites and do not transmit any data to such services. Only when you activate a plug-in by clicking on the corresponding control symbol, personal data will be transmitted to the chosen service (“2-click solution”). The chosen service will then receive information that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click on the plug-in while logged into the respective service, you can share the content of our pages on your profile.

Use of Google Analytics:

Our websites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses cookies to provide this service. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and enable recognition of the device you are using. This allows for an analysis of website usage, which helps improve its usability. Generally, it is not possible to infer your specific identity from this analysis.

The information generated by cookies (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server. To protect your privacy, Google Analytics has been configured to anonymize your IP address immediately after transmission within member states of the European Union or other contracting parties to the European Economic Area. Google only stores your IP address in an anonymized form (anonymizeIp=true). Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate the usage of our websites and compile reports on website activity. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with other data from Google.

By using our websites, you agree to the storage of cookies and the processing of your personal data as described above. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings in your browser software. However, in this case, some features of the websites may not be fully accessible. Additionally, you can prevent the use of Google Analytics by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. For more information on Google Analytics and the processing of personal data, please visit www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

Logging of email traffic/webmail:

For the purpose of ensuring adequate information and system security, as well as detecting and handling malicious software, our email servers (including rented servers) generate log data about the processed email traffic. When you send an email to or from our servers, the following data is logged: email and IP address, recipient’s email and IP address, recipient’s hostname, sender’s email and IP address, sender’s hostname, subject, date and time of receipt by the server, filenames of any attachments, message size, risk classification regarding spam quality, and delivery status. The examination of emails and the filtering of spam or malicious software are initially performed automatically. Only in suspected or doubtful cases, individual emails may undergo a closer examination by responsible individuals, potentially in consultation with the recipient.

Data security:

We implement all necessary and appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against loss and misuse. Your data is stored in a secure operating environment that complies with state-of-the-art technology. Access to our websites is secured via HTTPS when your browser supports SSL. This means that the communication between your device and our servers is encrypted. If you wish to contact us or our employees via email, please note that the confidentiality of the transmitted information cannot be guaranteed. The content of emails can be viewed by third parties due to their technical design, unless special technical security measures are taken. Therefore, we recommend transmitting confidential information exclusively through the contact form or via another secure method.

Your rights:

According to Article 13(2)(b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the right to information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, objection to processing, and data portability regarding your personal data concerning you.

Furthermore, according to Article 13(2)(d) of the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority regarding the processing of your personal data by us.

To exercise your rights, it may be necessary to prove your identity in an appropriate manner, depending on the nature and scope of your request.

Information provided in response to repeated requests for information is subject to a fee according to Article 15(3) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It should also be noted that the right to receive a copy, as stipulated in Article 15(1)(b) of the GDPR, must not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
