Data Protection

Our data protection policy (version dated 27 September 2022 – 221102896) explains in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and the DSG [“Datenschutzgesetz”: Austrian Data Protection Act] which information we collect, how we use data and which options are available to you as a visitor to this website. Although it is hard to provide such explanations without using technical language, we have tried to keep our explanations as plain and simple as possible.

Automatic Data Storage

Whenever you visit a website, certain information is created and stored automatically. Our website is no different. When you visit our website, as you are now doing, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as: ‍ i) the address (URL) of the website you visit ii) browser and browser version iii) the operating system you use iv) the address (URL) of the last site you visited (referrer URL) v) the host name and IP address of the device you are using to access the website vi) date and time in files (web server log files). Web server log files are usually stored for two weeks and are then automatically deleted. We do not share these data, but we cannot guarantee that they will not be accessed illegally.

Storage Of Personal Data

We only use any personal data which you provide to us electronically on this website, such as your name, email address, address or other personal particulars provided on a form or when commenting on a blog together with the time and IP address for the stated purpose. We will store your data securely and will not share it with third parties. This means we only use your personal data to communicate with visitors who expressly consent to being contacted and to process the services and products offered on this website. We do not share these data without your consent, but we cannot guarantee that they will not be accessed illegally. We are unable to guarantee the secure transfer and protection of any personal data you send us by email, i.e., outside of this website. We recommend that you encrypt all confidential data you send by email.

Analysis Of Website Traffic

In the data protection policy below we explain whether and how we analyze data collected during your visit to this website. Such data are generally analyzed anonymously and we are unable to determine your identity on the basis of your behavior on this website. You can find out more about how to object to an analysis of traffic data in the following data protection policy.

Tls Encrypton With Https

We use https to transfer data privately over the internet (data protection by design Article 25 (1) GDPR). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol to securely transfer data over the internet, we can guarantee the protection of confidential data. The small lock symbol in the top left corner of the browser and the use of the https prefix (instead of http) in our internet address show you that your data have been transferred securely.


Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data. Below we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following data protection policy. What are cookies? To surf the internet you have to use a browser, such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser, called cookies. There is no question about it, cookies are useful little helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. To be precise, they use HTTP cookies. There are also other kinds of cookies for different kinds of applications. HTTP cookies are tiny files which our website stores on your computer. These cookie files are automatically saved in the cookie folder, which you can imagine as your browser’s “brain.” A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes have to be specified in addition. Cookies store certain pieces of information about you, such as your preferred language or personal page settings. The next time you visit our website, your browser sends this user information back to us. By placing cookies, our website knows who you are and can apply your standard settings. In some browsers each cookie has its own file, while in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file. There are two types of cookie: first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are the cookies created directly by our website, whereas third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.g., Google Analytics). Every cookie is different as it stores a different amount of information. The lifetime of a cookie can range from a few minutes to several years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain any viruses, Trojans or other type of malware, nor can they access any information on your PC. Here is an example of the data contained in a cookie: Name: _ga Value: GA1.2.1326744211.152221102896 Purpose: to identify visitors to a website Expiry date: after two years A browser should be able to support these minimum key sizes: i) At least 4096 bytes per cookie ii) At least 50 cookies per domain iii) At least 3,000 cookies in total What kinds of cookies are there? The specific type of cookie we deploy depends on the services used and is explained in the following sections of the data protection policy. Below we briefly describe the different kinds of HTTP cookies. There are four different types: ‍ Strictly necessary cookiesThese are cookies that are vital to ensure the basic functionality of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user places a product in the shopping cart and then visits other websites before returning to the checkout. These cookies prevent the products in the shopping cart from being deleted even when the user closes their browser window. Performance cookies These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. They can also measure the page load time and performance of the website in different browsers. Functionality cookies These cookies help to improve the user experience by storing locations, font sizes or data in forms, for example. Advertising cookies These cookies are also known as targeting cookies and help to show advertisements that are relevant to the user. This can be very useful, but also very annoying. The first time you visit a website you will usually be asked which types of cookies you wish to allow. And of course, your choice is also stored in a cookie. How can I delete cookies? You, and you alone, decide how and whether you use cookies. No matter which service or which website cookies come from, you can always choose to either delete cookies, allow only some cookies or disable them. For example, you could opt out of third-party cookies, but allow all others. If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser or if you want to change or delete your cookie settings, you can go to your browser settings: ‍Chrome: Clear, enable and manage cookies in Chrome ‍Safari: Manage cookies and website data in Safari ‍Firefox: Clear cookies and site data in Firefox ‍Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies ‍Microsoft Edge: Delete and manage cookies ‍ ‍If you do not want to have any cookies at all, you can set up your browser to notify you each time a website wants to place a cookie. Then you can decide whether or not you want to allow that cookie. The procedure will depend on your browser. We recommend that you search for instructions in Google by entering the search term “delete cookies Chrome” or “disable cookies Chrome” if you have a Chrome browser, replacing “Chrome” with the name of your browser, e.g., Edge, Firefox, Safari, instead you use a different browser. How is my data privacy ensured? The EU Cookie Directive was issued in 2009. It specifies that the visitor to a website (you, that is) has to give their consent before cookies can be stored. However, this Directive has met with very different responses in the various EU member states. In Austria, it is implemented in Sec. 96 (3) TKG [“Telekommunikationsgesetz”: Austrian Telecommunications Act]. If you want to learn more about cookies and are not put off by technical documentation, we recommend you read the request for comments by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called “HTTP State Management Mechanism” at
