We have created this privacy statement in order to explain to you, in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), what information we collect, how we use data and what choices you have as a visitor to this website.
Automatic Data Storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically generated and stored, the same applies to this website. When you visit our website as you are doing now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as the IP address of your device, the addresses of the pages visited, details of your browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Edge,...) and date and time. We do not use this data and generally do not pass it on, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful conduct.
Collection and Processing of Personal Data
We do not require any personal data from you to visit our websites. Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us voluntarily, e.g. by registering, filling out forms or sending e-mails, ordering products or services, making inquiries or requesting material. This data will not be passed on to third parties, unless they are contracted service providers who contribute to the processing and support of your contracts.
Use and Distribution of Personal Data
The database and its contents remain with our company and our provider. Your personal data will only be used by us to answer your inquiries and to process contracts concluded with you. They will not be made available to third parties in any form by us or by personnel authorized by us, unless your consent or an administrative order has been obtained or on the basis of other exceptions under the GDPR, particularly Art. 6 GDPR.
By withdrawing your consent to storage, the stored personal data will be deleted if its possession is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was stored, or if its storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons.
In principle, you are entitled to the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the Data Protection Authority (Datenschutzbehörde), you can visit the website under https://www.dsb.gv.at/.
As a user of our website, you have the right, upon written inquiry, to request information from us about the data stored about you or your pseudonym.
We have taken technical and organisational measures to protect the personal data you have provided against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees and third parties involved in data processing are obliged to comply with the GDPR and to treat personal data confidentially. We cannot guarantee complete data security for communication by e-mail. We therefore recommend that you send confidential information by post.
TLS encryption with https
For some of our services, we use https to transmit data over the Internet in a tap-proof manner. Through the use of TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this data transmission security by the small lock symbol in the top left corner of the browser and the use of the https schema as part of our Internet address.
