Please note that, in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, the national data protection regulations in your or our country of residence and domicile may apply.

  • A Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR) – The data subject has given his consent to the processing of his personal data for one or more specific purposes.

  • Contractual performance and pre-contractual enquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b. GDPR) – Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject.

  • Legal obligation (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c. GDPR) – The processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which the controller is subject.

  • Protection of vital interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. d. GDPR) – The processing is necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.

National data protection regulations in Austria: In addition to the data protection regulations of the Basic Data Protection Regulation, national regulations apply to data protection in Austria. These include in particular the Federal Act on the Protection of Individuals with regard to the Processing of Personal Data (Datenschutzgesetz – DSG). In particular, the Data Protection Act contains special provisions on the right of access, the right of rectification or deletion, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission, and automated decision-making in individual cases.

SECURITY MEASURES

We shall take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, extent, circumstances and purposes of the processing, as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.

Actions shall include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to, and access to, input, dissemination, securing and separation of data. In addition, we have established procedures to ensure the exercise of data subjects’ rights, the deletion of data and responses to data breaches. Furthermore, we take the protection of personal data into account as early as the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures in accordance with the principle of data protection, through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings.

TRANSMISSION AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA

In the context of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transferred to other offices, companies, legally independent organizational units or persons or that it is disclosed to them. Recipients of this data may include, for example, payment institutions within the framework of payment transactions, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such a case, we observe the legal requirements and in particular conclude corresponding contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data which serve to protect your data. Read more in Enhancements, features, and content, and third-party order fulfillment.

DATA PROCESSING IN THIRD COUNTRIES

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the United States of America), or the processing takes place in the context of the use of services of third parties or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this will only be done in accordance with the legal requirements.

Without our express consent or transfer required by contract or law, we will only process or have the data processed in third countries with a recognized level of data protection, including US processors certified under the Privacy Shield, or on the basis of special guarantees, such as contractual obligation through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, the existence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection ).

 

USE OF COOKIES

Cookies are text files that contain data from visited websites or domains and are stored by a browser on the user’s computer. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user during or after the user’s visit to an online service. The information stored can include, for example, the language settings on a website, the login status, a shopping cart or the location where a video was viewed. The term “cookies” also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (e.g. if user information is stored using pseudonymous online identifiers, also referred to as “user IDs”)

The following cookie types and functions are distinguished:

  • Essential (also: required or necessary) cookies: Cookies may be absolutely necessary for the operation of a website (e.g. for saving the language selection, the shopping basket, logins or other user inputs or for security reasons).

  • Functional cookies: Provision of optional functions on this website or from third parties.

  • Permanent cookies: Permanent cookies remain stored even after closing the browser. For example, the login status can be saved or preferred content can be displayed directly when the user visits a website again. The interests of users who are used for range measurement or marketing purposes can also be stored in such a cookie.

  • External media: Access to external media for the purpose of content and function provision, e.g. YouTube videos or Google Maps, which results in the use of cookies, mainly from third party providers.

  • Statistics cookies: These cookies help us quantify and improve the performance of our content and services. There is no profiling and personal IP addresses are always anonymized.

  • Marketing and personalization cookies: These cookies are generally used to measure a user’s reach and when a user’s interests or behavior (e.g., viewing certain content, using features, etc.) on individual websites are stored in a user profile. Such profiles are used, for example, to provide users with content that matches their potential interests. This process is also known as “tracking”, i.e. tracking the potential interests of users. If we use cookies or “tracking” technologies, we will inform you separately in our privacy policy or as part of the consent process.

Information on legal bases: The legal basis on which we process your personal data with the aid of cookies depends on whether we ask you for your consent. If this applies and you consent to the use of cookies, the legal basis for processing your data is your declared consent. Otherwise, the data processed with the help of cookies will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. in a business operation of our online service and its improvement) or, if the use of cookies is necessary to fulfill our contractual obligations.

General information on revocation and objection (opt-out): Depending on whether processing is based on a consent or legal permission, you have the option at any time to revoke a consent given or to object to the processing of your data using cookie technologies (collectively referred to as “opt-out”). You can initially declare your objection using the settings of your browser, e.g. by deactivating the use of cookies (which may also restrict the functionality of our online service). An objection to the use of cookies for online marketing purposes may also be raised by means of a variety of services, particularly in the case of tracking, via the US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or generally on http://optout.aboutads.info.

Processing of cookie data on the basis of consent: Before we process or have processed data within the framework of the use of cookies, we ask the user for consent that can be revoked at any time. Before the consent has not been given, we may use cookies that are necessary for the operation of our online service. They are used on the basis of our interest and the interest of the user in the expected functionality of our online offer.

We process data of our contractual and business partners, e.g. customers and interested parties (collectively referred to as “contractual partners”) within the framework of contractual and comparable legal relationships as well as associated measures and within the framework of communication with the contractual partners (or pre-contractual), e.g. in order to answer enquiries.

We process this data in order to fulfil our contractual obligations, to safeguard our rights and for the purposes of the administrative tasks associated with this data and the entrepreneurial organization. In accordance with applicable law, we will only pass on the data of the contractual partners to third parties insofar as this is necessary for the aforementioned purposes or for the fulfilment of statutory obligations or with the consent of the contractual partners (e.g. telecommunications, transport and other auxiliary services as well as subcontractors, banks, tax and legal advisors, payment service providers or tax authorities involved).

What data is necessary for the aforementioned purposes, we inform the contractual partners before or in the context of the data collection, e.g. in online forms, by special marking (e.g. colors) or symbols (e.g. asterisks or the like), or personally.

Insofar as we use third-party providers or platforms to provide our services, the terms and conditions and data protection notices of the respective third-party providers or platforms shall apply in the relationship between the users and the providers.

The analyses are carried out for the purpose of business management evaluations, marketing and market research (e.g. to determine customer groups with different characteristics). If available, we can take into account the profiles of registered users and their information, e.g. on services used. The analyses serve us alone and are not disclosed externally unless they are anonymous analyses with summarized, i.e. anonymized values. Furthermore, we respect the privacy of the users and process the data for analysis purposes as pseudonymously as possible and, if feasible, anonymously (e.g. as summarized data).

Shop and E-Commerce: We process the data of our customers in order to enable them to select, purchase, order or book the selected products, goods, events, services and/or related services as well as to pay for and deliver or execute them.

In the context of contractual and other legal relationships, due to legal obligations or otherwise on the basis of our legitimate interests, we offer the persons concerned efficient and secure payment options and use other payment service providers in addition to banks and credit institutions (collectively, “payment service providers”).

The data processed by the payment service providers includes inventory data such as name and address, bank data such as account or credit card numbers, passwords, TANs and checksums, as well as contract, total and recipient details. The information is required to complete the transactions. However, the data entered will only be processed and stored by the payment service providers. This means that we do not receive any account- or credit card-related information, but only information with confirmation or negative information about the payment. Under certain circumstances, the data may be transmitted by the payment service provider to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness. Please refer to the general terms and conditions and the data protection information of the payment service providers.

For payment transactions, the terms and conditions and the data protection information of the respective payment service providers, which can be accessed within the respective websites or transaction applications, apply.

This is done for our security, if someone leaves illegal contents (insults, forbidden political propaganda etc.) in comments and contributions. In this case we can be prosecuted ourselves for the comment or contribution and are therefore interested in the identity of the author.

We also reserve the right, on the basis of our legitimate interests, to process user information for the purpose of spam detection.

On the same legal basis, we reserve the right, in the case of surveys, to store the IP addresses of users for their duration and to use cookies in order to avoid multiple voting.

PROVISION OF THE WEBSITE AND WEBHOSTING

In order to provide our online services securely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web hosting providers from whose servers (or servers managed by them) the online services can be accessed. For these purposes, we may use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, as well as security and technical maintenance services.

The data processed within the framework of the provision of the hosting offer may include all information relating to the users of our online offer that is collected within the scope of use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address, which is necessary in order to be able to deliver the contents of online offers to browsers, and all entries made within our online offer or from websites.

E-mail dispatch and -hosting: The webhosting services used by us also include the dispatch, receipt and storage of e-mails. For these purposes, the addresses of the recipients and senders as well as further information regarding the sending of e-mails (e.g. the providers involved) and the contents of the respective e-mails are processed. The aforementioned data may also be processed for SPAM detection purposes. Please note that e-mails on the Internet are generally not sent in encrypted form. As a rule, e-mails are encrypted during transport, but not on the servers from which they are sent and received (unless a so-called end-to-end encryption method is used). Therefore, we cannot assume any responsibility for the transmission path of e-mails between the sender and the reception on our server.

Collection of access data and logfiles: We (or our webhosting provider) collect data on each access to the server (so-called server logfiles). The server log files may include the address and name of the web pages and files accessed, the date and time of access, data volumes transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP addresses and the requesting provider.

The server logfiles can be used for security purposes, e.g. to avoid server overload (especially in case of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks) and to ensure server utilization and stability.

  • Processed data types: Content data (e.g. text input, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. visited websites, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).

  • Affected persons: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).

  • Legal basis: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. GDPR).

HOSTING AND WEB SERVICE PROVIDER

We use external service providers to support us in the operation of our website. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound to our instructions, and are controlled regularly. This collaboration is based on data processor agreements in accordance with Article 28 GDPR. As a rule, these external service providers who provide us with technical support (e.g. web hosters, programmers) have at least the possibility to access personal data. Such access is not intentional. However, we cannot rule out in individual cases that certain personal data are disclosed to these providers as part of their activity. From a data protection point of view, these are so-called recipients (Article 4(9) GDPR) of personal data.

NEWSLETTER

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications (hereinafter referred to as “newsletters”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. If the contents of the newsletter are specifically described within the scope of registration, they are decisive for the consent of the user.

Deletion and limitation of processing: We may store the unsubscribed email addresses for up to three years based on our legitimate interests before deleting them in order to provide evidence of prior consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time. In the case of obligations to permanently observe contradictions, we reserve the right to store the e-mail address solely for this purpose in a black list.

The registration procedure is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of proving that it has been carried out properly. If we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure dispatch system.

Notes on legal bases: The newsletter is sent on the basis of the recipient’s consent or, if consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing, provided and to the extent that this is permitted by law, e.g. in the case of existing customer advertising.

The registration process will be recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests to demonstrate that it was conducted in accordance with the law.

The evaluation of the newsletter and the performance measurement are carried out, subject to the express consent of the user, on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purposes of using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system, which serves both our business interests and the expectations of the user.

A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled or contradicted.
