Privacy statement

Privacy statement

[Version 16.05.2018]

The protection and security of your personal data is of a particular importance to us. Therefore we process the data related to your person exclusively on the basis of the Austrian Data Protection Act (Fundamental Data Protection Regulation - in short DSGVO, Telecommunication Act 2003 - in short TKG). The intent of this data protection information is to inform you about the most important aspects of data processing in the framework of our website.

You express your agreement to data processing in the context of this statement. This Privacy Policy applies to our websites and services provided by external service providers. In the event that you are forwarded to other websites by means of links provided on our pages, please inquire about the respective handling of your data directly at the website you have been forwarded to.

The privacy protection measures are subject to constant technical development and, therefore, we would like to ask you to keep yourself informed by checking our privacy statement at regular intervals.

1. Contact with us

In case you contact us by means of a form from one of our websites or by means of e-mail, we will save the data you provide for the purpose of processing your enquiry and possible follow-up questions for a period of six months. This data will be not forwarded to anybody without your consent.

2. Cookies

Our websites use so-called cookies. These are tiny pieces of text data which are stored on your terminal device with the help of your browser. They do not cause any harm.

We use cookies to provide you with a more user-friendly service. Some cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. They enable us to recognise your browser during your next visit.

In case this in undesired, you may set up your browser in such a way that you will be informed about the storage of cookies and you will enable it only in individual cases. Deactivation of cookies may lead to restricted functionality of our website.

3. Web-Analysis

Our website employs the following functions of web analysis:

3.1. Using YouTube components with enhanced data protection mode

On our website we use components (videos) from YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company of Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

In this case we use the “– enhanced data protection mode –” option provided by YouTube.

When you display a page with the YouTube plug-in included, a connection will be made to the YouTube server and the YouTube server will be thus informed that you visited our pages. If you are simultaneously logged into YouTube, this information will be matched with your YouTube user account. This may be prevented if you log out from your user account.

More information about data protection by YouTube is available at:


3.2. Using Google-Analytics with anonymization

On our website we use Google-Analytics, a web analysis service of the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, further referred to as “Google-Analytics”. Google-Analytics uses target-oriented cookies.

Information generated with the help of these cookies, such as time, location and frequency of your website visits including your IP address, are transferred to Google in the USA where they are stored.

You may find more information on the handling of data at Google Analytics in Google's privacy statement.

You may prevent Google from collecting the data which are generated by these cookies referring to your usage of the website as well as their processing by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

Its activation, however, does not prevent the information from being transmitted to us or, if applicable, to other web analysis services employed by us. As an alternative, you may prevent the collection by clicking on the following link ( In this case opt-out-cookies will be employed preventing your data from being collected during further visits to this website: “This website uses Google Analytics with the extension 'anonymizeIP()‘ in order to enable further processing of IP addresses only in their abbreviated form to eliminate the possibility of direct identification of individuals.


3.3. Using Google-Maps

On our website we use components from "Google Maps" of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, further referred to as “Google Maps”.

With each individual access to the “Google Maps” component, a cookie will be employed to process user settings and data. As a rule, this cookie will not be deleted by shutting down the browser but it expires after a specific period of time, if you do not delete it earlier manually.

If you do not agree with such processing of your data, you may deactivate the “Google Maps” service and prevent the transfer of data to Google in this way. To be able to do this you have to deactivate the Java script function in your browser.

Further information on Google's terms of service can be found at as well as additional terms and conditions for “Google Maps”


3.4. Using Google-AdWord

To promote our website we also use Google’s advertising tool “Google AdWords”. In its framework we also utilise on our website the “Conversion Tracking” analytical service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, further referred to as “Google AdWords”. If you landed on our website via a Google Ad, a conversion cookie will be placed on your computer. These so called “conversion cookies” expire after 30 days and are not used for your personal identification. If you visit specific pages at our website and the cookie has not yet expired, it enables us and Google to recognise that you as a user clicked one of our advertisements placed by Google and you were forwarded to our page.

The information gathered with the help of “conversion cookies” serves Google to generate visitation statistics for our website. By means of these statistics we learn the total number of users who clicked on our advertisement and, additionally, which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. However, we or anybody else placing an advertisement via “Google AdWords” will not receive any information enabling personal identification of the user.

You may prevent the installation of “conversion cookies” by the respective setting of your browser, for example by setting the browser to generally deactivate the automatic use of cookies specifically by blocking only the cookies from the domain “”.
