Version: 01.10.2019

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore, we process your data solely on the basis of statutory regulations (GDPR, Austrian Telecommunications Act (TKG) 2003). In this privacy statement, we provide you with information about the most important aspects of data processing within our website.

Data privacy statement:

Access data
In the context of hosting, for the purpose of monitoring technical function and to increase the web host’s operating security, we process the following personal user data in a server log file for a maximum duration of seven days, on the statutory basis of legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6, para. 1, lit. f GDPR (technical security measures):• Website visited

  • Time and date of access
  • Amount of transmitted data in bytes
  • Source/link from which you reached the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used

The collected data is used simply for statistical analyses and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to retroactively review the server log files if specific indications suggest unlawful use.

4. Map service

On this website, we offer map providers in the form of iFrame nesting. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and to enable convenient use of map functions.

Google Maps
As a joint controller alongside Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, we process connection data and browser data for the purpose of displaying an interactive map for the duration that the map is shown. In doing so, we allow Google Maps to place cookies on the user’s computer and to create a user ID to identify the unique user as part of the advertising network that Google operates.

The statutory basis for the processing is consent given by you, pursuant to Article 96, para. 3 TKG, in conjunction with Article 6, para. 1, lit. a GDPR.

If continuing independent processing of the data, particularly as part of Google’s advertising network, is carried out by Google Maps, Google Maps is the sole controller of this. Further details can be found in the Google Maps privacy policy.

5. Audio and video services

On this website, we offer video and audio services in the form of iFrame nesting. By doing this, we are able to show you multimedia content directly on the website.

For integrating videos, our website uses the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Normally, when calling up a page with embedded videos, your IP address has already been sent to YouTube and cookies have been installed on your computer. However, we have integrated our YouTube videos with an advanced data protection mode (in this case, YouTube continues to make contact with Google’s DoubleClick service, but personal data is not analysed, in accordance with Google’s data privacy policy). Therefore, YouTube no longer stores information about users, unless they view the video. If you click on the video, your IP address is sent to YouTube and YouTube learns that you have watched the video. If you are logged into YouTube, this information shall also be attached to your user account (this can be prevented by logging out of YouTube before calling up videos).

From this point, we have no knowledge of potential collection and use of your data by YouTube and have no influence on this.

The statutory basis for the processing is consent given by you, pursuant to Article 96, para. 3 TKG, in conjunction with Article 6, para. 1, lit. a GDPR.

If continuing independent processing of the data, particularly as part of YouTube/Google’s advertising network, is carried out by YouTube/Google, YouTube/Google is the sole controller of this.

More information can be found in YouTube’s privacy policy.

6. Facebook page

Anonymised, statistical data about website activity will be created from this information and provided to us automatically (Insights). In accordance with Article 26 of the European General Data Protection Regulation, we are jointly responsible for this data processing alongside Facebook. We base this on our legitimate interest. Without processing this data, it would not be possible for us to provide and optimise our presence on Facebook. More information can be found on the Facebook information page.

We are not provided with any personal data. At the same time, the data is also stored and processed by Facebook itself, so that Facebook is able to make a connection to the respective Facebook profile. Facebook can use this data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook data policy. The consent for this is the responsibility of Facebook and cannot be influenced by us. More information about the collection and use of data by Facebook and your rights and options to protect your privacy in this regard can be found in the Facebook data policy.
