Contact via e-mail and contact form
When you contact us by e-mail or by using the contact form on our website, the data you provide us is stored for a period of six months for the purpose of handling your enquiry and any subsequent questions. We do not share this data without your consent.
Our website uses what are known as cookies, which are small text files that your browser stores on your device. They do not cause any harm.
If you prefer to disable cookies, you can configure your browser settings to notify you about cookies and then choose to enable them on a case-by-case basis.

Server log files
The site provider automatically collects and stores information in files known as server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These contain:
- browser type and browser version
- operating system used
- referrer URL
- hostname of the accessing computer
- time of server request
This data cannot be traced back to any particular persons and is not combined with any other data sources. We reserve the right to examine this data at a later date if we have specific reason to believe any unlawful use has occurred.
For security reasons and to protect confidential content during transfer, this site uses SSL encryption, for example, when you send enquiries to us as the site operator. You can tell that a connection is encrypted if the ‘http://’ in your browser’s address bar changes to ‘https://’ along with a lock symbol next to it. When SSL encryption is enabled, data you send us cannot be read by third parties.
Right to information, erasure and blocking
You have the following fundamental rights: right of access to information, right to rectification, erasure, restriction of use, data portability, revocation and objection. If you believe that your data has been handled in a way that violates the data protection law or that your data protection rights have otherwise been violated, you may lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. This is the Austrian Data Protection Authority (Datenschutzbehörde).
Web analytics provided by Google Analytics
This website uses web analytics functions provided by Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses what are known as cookies, which are text files stored on your computer for the purposes of analysing how you use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is generally sent to and stored on a Google server located in the USA.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that Google truncates your IP address within the Member States of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is sent to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, this information is used by Google to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities, and to provide the website operator other services relating to website use and Internet use. The IP address sent by your browser to the Google Analytics service is not combined with other Google data.
You can configure your browser to block cookies. Please note, however, that by doing so, you might not be able to fully use all the functions of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting cookie data relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract data processing agreement with Google and we fully adhere to the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when it comes to the use of Google Analytics.
Demographics in Google Analytics
This website uses the Demographics function of Google Analytics, which makes it possible to create reports containing information about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based Google advertising and from visitor data from third-party providers. The data cannot be traced back to any specific person. You can disable this function at any time using the Ads settings in your Google account or you can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data in general in the Ads Personalization section.
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter simply referred to as “reCAPTCHA” ) on this website. It is provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
reCAPTCHA is used to verify whether data provided through this website (e.g. via a contact form) has been entered by a human being or an automated program. To this end, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor on the basis of a number of features. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor opens the website. In this analysis, reCAPTCHA examines various information (e.g. IP address, duration of website visit or mouse operations performed by the user). The data collected during this analysis is forwarded to Google.
reCAPTCHA analyses are performed entirely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that this analysis is being performed.
The legal basis for this data processing is provided by Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting their web services from abusive automated surveillance and unsolicited advertising (spam).
