Legal basis of the data processing

In the following we inform you about the legal basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), on the basis of which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, national data protection regulations may apply in your or our country of residence and domicile.

National data protection regulations in Austria: In addition to the data protection provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation, national regulations on data protection apply in Austria. This includes in particular the Austrian Federal Act on the Protection of Individuals with regard to the Processing of Personal Data (Data Protection Act – DSG). In particular, the Austrian Data Protection Act contains special provisions on the right of access, the right to rectification or erasure, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and communication and automated decision-making in individual cases.

Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR) – The data subject has given his/her consent to the processing of personal data concerning him/her for one or more specific purposes.
Fulfilment of a contract and pre-contractual requests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b. GDPR) – The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or for carrying out pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject.
Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. GDPR) – The processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data.
Data processing in third countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if the processing takes place in the context of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this shall only take place in accordance with the legal requirements.

Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transfer, we process or allow the data to be processed only in third countries with a recognised level of data protection, including the US processors certified under the “Privacy Shield”, or on the basis of special guarantees, such as contractual obligations through what are known as standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, the existence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the EU Commission: ).

Security measures/SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests via our contact form that you send to us. An encrypted connection can be recognised by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in your browser bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

In accordance with Art. 32 GDPR and taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing, as well as the varying probability of occurrence and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection commensurate with the risk; these measures include securing the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling the physical access to the data, as well as the access, input, disclosure, securing of availability and its separation. Furthermore, we apply procedures that ensure the exercise of data subject rights, erasure of data and reaction to data threats. We consider the protection of personal data as early as in the development or selection of hardware, software and processes, in accordance with the principle of data protection through technological design and through data protection-friendly default settings.

Use of cookies

Cookies are text files that contain data from visited websites or domains and are stored by a browser on the user’s computer. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, but primarily serve to store information about a user during or after his/her visit within an online offer. The stored information can include, for example, the language settings on a website, or the login status. The term cookies also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (e.g., user IDs – information about users stored using pseudonymous online identifiers)

The following cookie types and functions are distinguished:

  • Temporary cookies, also known as session cookies: Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after a user has left an online offer and closed his/her browser.
  • Permanent cookies: Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or an automatic solution is provided by your web browser. For example, the login status can be saved or preferred content can be displayed directly when the user visits a website again.
  • First party cookies: First party cookies are set by ourselves.
  • Third party cookies: Third party cookies are mainly used by advertisers (so-called third parties) to process user information.
  • Necessary, also known as essential or absolutely necessary cookies: Cookies can be absolutely imperative for the operation of a website, e.g. to store logins or other user entries, or for security reasons.
  • Statistical, marketing and personalisation cookies: Furthermore, cookies are generally also used in the context of range measurement as well as when the interests of a user or his/her behaviour (e.g. viewing certain content, using functions, etc.) on individual websites are stored in a user profile. Such profiles are used to show users, for example, content that matches their potential interests. This process is also known as “tracking”, i.e. following the potential interests of users. These types of cookies are not set on our website – we do not use Google Analytics, Facebook pixels, or any other tracking cookies.

You can determine yourself which and whether you want to use cookies. You have the possibility to clear, disable or only partially allow cookies. For example, you can block only third party cookies, but allow all other cookies.

You can also set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic clearing of cookies when closing the browser.
