Declaration on the duty to provide information
Data protection declaration
The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (DSGVO, TKG 2003). In this data protection information we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing on our website.
Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we have tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.
If you visit our website as you are currently visiting it, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically saves data such as
- the address (URL) of the called website
- Browser and browser version
- the operating system used
- the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
- the host name and IP address of the device from which it is accessed
- Date and time
in files (web server log files).
Usually web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of illegal behaviour.
According to article 6, paragraph 1 f of the DSGVO (lawfulness of processing), the legal basis is that there is a legitimate interest in enabling the faultless operation of this website through the collection of web server log files.
Contact with us
If you contact us by form on the website or by e-mail, the data you provide will be stored with us for six months for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
You have the possibility to subscribe to our newsletter via our website. For this we need your e-mail address and your declaration that you agree to receive the newsletter.
You can cancel your subscription to the newsletter at any time. Please send your cancellation to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will immediately delete your data in connection with sending the newsletter.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
A cookie is a short data package that is exchanged between web browser and web server, but is completely meaningless to them and only becomes significant for the web application, e.g. an online shop, such as the content of a virtual shopping basket.
There are two types of cookies:
First-party cookies are created by our website, third-party cookies are created by other websites (e.g. Google Analytics).
There are three categories of cookies: essential cookies to ensure basic website functions, functional cookies to ensure website performance and targeted cookies to improve the user experience.

If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser, change cookie settings or delete cookies, you can find this in your browser settings:
- Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari
- Firefox: delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer
- Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome
- Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies
If you do not wish the storage of data in cookies, you can set your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases. You can delete cookies that are already on your computer or deactivate cookies at any time. The procedure varies from browser to browser, the best way is to search for the instructions in Google with the search term "Delete cookies Chrome" or "Disable cookies Chrome" in the case of a Chrome browser or replace the word "Chrome" with the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari.
We use Google Fonts from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website. Google Fonts is used without authentication and no cookies are sent to the Google Fonts API. If you have a Google Account, none of your Google Account information will be transferred to Google while you use Google Fonts. Google merely records the use of CSS and the fonts used and stores this data securely.
You can find more information on these and other questions at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq.
You can find out what data Google collects and what this data is used for at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/
We use Google Maps from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website. This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).
Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
We would like to point out that the code "anonymizeIp" has been added to Google Analytics on this website in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be cut back by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet use.
If you do not want to accept cookies, please change your browser settings accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.
You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
TLS encryption with https
We use https to transmit data securely over the Internet (data protection through technical design Article 25 paragraph 1 DSGVO). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission over 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 upper left corner of the browser and the use of the https scheme (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.
In principle, you have 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.
