Data privacy statement
We have compiled this data privacy statement (version 18.01.2019-221084298) to explain which information we collect, how we use data and what decision-making options you have as a visitor to this website according to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and the Data Protection Act (DSG).
Unfortunately it is natural for such explanations to sound highly technical, but in compiling them we have tried to describe the most important things as easily and clearly as possible.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically compiled and stored, as on this website.
When visiting our website right now for example, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data, such as:
- address (URL) of the accessed website
- browser and browser version
- operating system used
- address (URL) of previously visited site (referrer URL)
- host name and IP address of the device used for access
- date and time
in files (web server log files).
Web server log files are generally stored for two weeks and subsequently automatically deleted. We do not pass on such data, but cannot exclude the possibility of such data being viewed in the case of unlawful conduct.
The legal basis under Article 6(1) f) GDPR (Lawfulness of processing) lies in having a legitimate interest in facilitating the fault-free operation of this website by recording web server log files.
Storage of personal data
Personal data transmitted to us electronically on this website, such as name, email address, address or other personal information within the scope of forwarding a form or comments on the blog, shall only be used by our company for the specified purpose – along with the time and IP address -, held secure and not transmitted to third parties.
We will therefore only use your personal data for communication with visitors who explicitly request contact and for the processing of services and products offered on this website. We shall not pass on your personal data without consent, but cannot exclude the possibility of such data being viewed in case of unlawful conduct.
If you send us personal data by email – and therefore away from this website – we cannot guarantee secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never transmit confidential data unencrypted by email.
The legal basis under Artikel 6 Absatz 1 a DSGVO (Lawfulness of processing) lies in granting consent for us to process data that you have entered. You can revoke this consent at any time – an informal email is sufficient; our contact data can be found in the legal notice.
Rights according to the General Data Protection Regulation
You always have the following rights according to the provisions of GDPR and the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG):
- Right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR)
- Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) (Article 17 GDPR)
- Right to restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR)
- Right to notification – notification obligation regarding rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing (Article 19 GDPR)
- Right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR)
- Right to object (Article 21 GDPR)
- Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing — including profiling — (Article 22 GDPR)
If you believe that the processing of your data breaches data protection law or your claims under data protection law have been infringed in any other way, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, i.e. in Austria the Data Protection Authority, whose website can be found at https://www.dsb.gv.at/.
Evaluation of visitor behaviour
We inform you about whether and how we evaluate data from your visit to this website in the data privacy statement below. Collected data are generally evaluated anonymously and we cannot infer anything about your person from your behaviour on this website.
You can learn more about options for objecting to this evaluation of visit data in the data privacy statement below.
TLS encryption with https
We use https to transfer data in encrypted form on the Internet (data protection through technology design Article 25(1) GDPR). We can ensure the protection of confidential data through the use of TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet. Use of such protection of data transmission can be identified in the small lock symbol at the top left of the browser and use of the scheme https (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.
Google Fonts data privacy statement
We use Google Fonts provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website. Google Fonts are used without authentication and no cookies are sent to Google Fonts API. Should you have an account at Google, none of your Google account data will be transmitted to Google when using Google Fonts. Google merely records the use of CSS and the fonts used, and stores such data securely. You can find more on this and other questions at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=221084298.
