Types of processed data:
– Inventory data (e.g., names, addresses).
– contact information (e.g., e-mail, phone numbers).
– content data (e.g., text input, photographs, videos).
– usage data (e.g., websites visited, interest in content, access times).
– Meta/ communication data (e.g., device information, IP addresses).
The automatic collection and storage of protocol data by the provider of the Internet services (providers) takes place, because the processing of this data is technically necessary to show you our website and to ensure the stability and security. The log data includes the following information:
- Date and time of each request
- Internet address (URL) requested
- URL that the visitor visited immediately before
- Browser used and language
- Operating system used and its interface
- IP address (anonymized) and host name of the visitor
- Access status / http status code
Transferred amount of data
The transmission of this data to us is automatic and can not be assigned to your person. The legal basis for the processing of this data is our legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO, because these data processes are necessary for the operation and the display of the website. The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of collecting the data throughthe website, this is the case when the respective session is completed. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no contradiction on the part of the user.
In order to make the visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device and that store certain information for exchange with our system. The legal basis for the processing of this data is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e., after the browser has been closed (transient cookies). These include in particular session or session cookies. These store a unique identifier (session ID). This session ID allows different requests from your browser to be associated with a single session. This will allow your device to be recognized when returning to our website during a session. Session cookies are already deleted when you log out.
Other cookies remain on your device for a specified period of time and allow us to recognize your browser or device at the next visit (persistent cookies).
Please note that certain cookies are already set as soon as you enter our website. You can set your browser so that you can be informed about the setting of cookies and individually decide on their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases, especially third party cookies (Third Party Cookies) or in general. If you do not accept cookies, the functionality of our website may be restricted for you.
Configuration of the cookie settings in the browser
You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your computer by appropriate browser settings. Each browser differs in the way it manages the cookie settings. This is described in the Help menu of each browser, which explains how to change your cookie settings.
We take appropriate technical measures in accordance with Article 32 GDPR, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the different likelihood and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.
Measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as their access, input, disclosure, availability and separation. We have also set up procedures to ensure the enjoyment of data subject rights, data deletion and data vulnerability. Furthermore, we consider the protection of personal data already in the development, or selection of hardware, software and procedures, according to the principle of data protection through technology design and privacy-friendly default settings (Article 25 DSGVO).
Encryption by SSL
For security reasons, our website uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption. This protects transmitted data and can not be read by third parties. You can tell from a successful encryption that the protocol name changes from “http: //” to “https: //” in the status bar of the browser and that a closed lock icon is visible there.
Collaboration with processors and third parties
If, in the context of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties), transmit them to them or otherwise grant access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permission (e.g., if a transmission of the data to third parties, as required by payment service providers, pursuant to Article. 6 (1) (b) GDPR to fulfill the contract), you have consented to a legal obligation or based on our legitimate interests (e.g., the use of agents, webhosters, etc.).
If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called “contract processing contract”, this is done on the basis of Article 28 GDPR.
Transfers to third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e., outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or in the context of the use of third party services or disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this will only be done if it is to fulfill our (pre) contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or have the data processed in a third country only in the presence of the special conditions of Article 44 et seq. DSGVO. That the processing is e.g. on the basis of specific guarantees, such as the officially recognized level of data protection (e.g., for the US through the Privacy Shield) or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).

According to legal regulations in Austria the storage takes place especially for 7 years according to § 132 paragraph 1 BAO (accounting documents, receipts / invoices, accounts, receipts, business papers, statement of income and expenses, etc.), for 22 years in connection with real estate and for 10 years in the case of documents relating to electronically supplied services, telecommunications, broadcasting and television services provided to non-entrepreneurs in EU Member States and for which the Mini-One-Stop-Shop (MOSS) is used.
In addition, we process
– contract data (e.g., subject, term, customer category).
– Payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history)
from our customers, prospects and business partners for the purpose of providing contractual services, service and customer care, marketing, advertising and market research.
We process the data of our contractual partners and interested parties as well as other clients, customers, clients, clients or contractual partners (uniformly referred to as “contractual partners”) in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO in order to provide you with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The data processed, the nature, scope and purpose and necessity of their processing are determined by the underlying contractual relationship.
The processed data includes the master data of our contractual partners (e.g., names and addresses), contact data (e.g., e-mail addresses and telephone numbers) as well as contract data (e.g.,, services used, contract contents, contractual communication, names of contact persons) and payment data (e.g., Bank details, payment history).
In principle, we do not process special categories of personal data, unless they are part of a contracted or contractual processing.
We process data which are necessary for the establishment and fulfillment of the contractual services and point out their necessity, if this is not evident for the contractual partners. Disclosure to external persons or companies will only be made if required by a contract. When processing the data provided to us within the framework of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client as well as the legal requirements.
As part of the use of our online services, we can save the IP address and the time of each user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the interests of the user in the protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. A transfer of these data to third parties does not take place, unless it is to pursue our claims according to Article 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO required or there is a legal obligation in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 lit. c. DSGVO.
The data will be deleted if the data is no longer required for the fulfillment of contractual or statutory duties of care and for the handling of any warranty and comparable obligations, whereby the necessity of keeping the data is reviewed every three years; otherwise the statutory storage obligations apply.
Administration, financial accounting, office organization, contact management
We process data in the context of administrative tasks and organization of our business, financial accounting and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In doing so, we process the same data that we process in the course of rendering our contractual services. The processing principles are Article 6 para. 1 lit. c. DSGVO, Article 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. The processing affects customers, prospects, business partners and website visitors. The purpose and interest in processing lies in administration, financial accounting, office organization, data archiving, that is, tasks that serve to maintain our business, perform our duties and provide our services. The deletion of the data in terms of contractual performance and contractual communication corresponds to the information provided in these processing activities.
We disclose or transmit data to the financial administration, consultants, such as tax accountants or auditors, and other fee agents and payment service providers.
Furthermore, based on our business interests, we store information about suppliers, promoters and other business partners, e.g., for later contact. We generally store this majority of company-related data permanently.
When contacting us (for example, by contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media) the information of the user to process the contact request and its processing in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 lit. b. (in the context of contractual / pre-contractual relationships), Article 6 para. 1 lit. f. (other requests) DSGVO processed. User information can be stored in a Customer Relationship Management System (“CRM System”) or comparable request organization.
We delete the requests, if they are no longer required. We check the necessity of continued storage every two years. Furthermore, the legal archiving obligations apply.
Online presence in social media
We maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services. Currently these are Facebook and Instagram.
We point out that data of the users outside the area of the European Union can be processed. This may result in risks for the users because e.g., enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. With respect to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.
Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles are created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, toplace advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are apparentlyin line with users’ interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).
The processing of the personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers for consent to the data processing (that is, they declare their agreement, for example, by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is Article 6 para. a., Article 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of contradiction (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information of the provider.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.
