We have prepared this privacy statement (version 18.04.2019-221091551) in order to explain to you, in accordance with the requirements of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and the Data Protection Act (DSG), what information we collect, how we use data and what decision-making options you have as a visitor to this website.
Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these statements sound very technical, but we have tried to make them as simple and clear as possible.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically generated and stored, including on this website.
When you visit our website as you are doing now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as
- the address (URL) of the called web page
- Browser and browser version
- the operating system
- the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
- the host name and IP address of the device from which it is accessed
- Date and time
in files (web server log files).
Web server log files are usually stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful conduct.
According to Article 6 paragraph 1 f DSGVO (lawfulness of processing), the legal basis is that there is a legitimate interest in enabling the error-free operation of this website by recording web server log files.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
Below we explain what cookies are and why they are used to help you better understand the following privacy statement.
What exactly are cookies?
Whenever you browse the Internet, use a browser. Well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most webpages store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.
Cookies store certain user data from you, such as language or personal page settings. When you return to our site, your browser sends the “user-related” information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your usual standard settings. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.
There are both first-party and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner sites (such as Google Analytics). Each cookie is unique because each cookie stores different information. The expiration time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other “pests”. Cookies also cannot access information on your PC.
For example, cookie data may look like this:
- Name: _ga
- Expiry time: 2 years
- Use: Differentiation of website visitors
- Example value: GA1.2.1326744211.152221091551
A browser should support the following minimum sizes:
- A cookie should contain at least 4096 bytes.
- At least 50 cookies should be stored per domain.
- A total of at least 3000 cookies should be stored.
What types of cookies are there?
There are 4 types of cookies:
Absolutely necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure the basic functionality of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user places a product in the shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and later only proceeds to checkout. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.
These cookies collect information about the user behavior and whether the user gets any error messages. In addition, these cookies are used to measure the loading time and the behaviour of the website with different browsers.
These cookies ensure better user friendliness. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are stored.
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to deliver individually tailored advertising to the user. This can be very practical, but also very annoying.
Usually, when you first visit a website, you are asked which of these cookie types you want to allow. And of course this decision is also stored in a cookie.
How can I delete cookies?
If you want to determine which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:
If you do not want cookies, you can set your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether to allow the cookie or not. The procedure varies depending on the browser. It is best to search for the instructions in Google using the search term “Delete cookies Chrome” or “Deactivate cookies Chrome” in the case of a Chrome browser or exchange the word “Chrome” for the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari.
Since 2009 there are the so-called “cookie guidelines”. These guidelines state that the storage of cookies requires the consent of the website visitor (i.e. you). Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these guidelines. In Austria, however, this directive was implemented in § 96 (3) of the Telecommunications Act (TKG).
If you want to know more about cookies and do not shy away from technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called “HTTP State Management Mechanism”.
Storage of personal data
Personal data that you provide to us electronically on this website, such as your name, e-mail address, address or other personal information when submitting a form or comment in the blog, will be used by us together with the time and IP address only for the purpose stated, kept secure and will not be disclosed to third parties.
We therefore use your personal data only for communication with visitors who expressly wish to contact us and for the processing of the services and products offered on this website. We do not pass on your personal data without your consent, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful conduct.
If you send us personal data by e-mail – i.e. outside of this website – we cannot guarantee the secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential data unencrypted by e-mail.
According to Article 6 paragraph 1 a DSGVO (lawfulness of processing), the legal basis is that you give us your consent to process the data you have entered. You can revoke this consent at any time – an informal e-mail is sufficient, you will find our contact details in the imprint.
Rights according to the data protection basic regulation
According to the provisions of the DSGVO and the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG), you have the following rights in principle:
- Right to Reporting (Article 16 DSGVO)
- Right to cancellation (“right to be forgotten”) (Article 17 DSGVO)
- Right to limitation of processing (Article 18 DSGVO)
- Right of notification – notification obligation in relation to rectification or erasure of personal data or limitation of processing (Article 19 DSGVO)
- Right to data transferability (Article 20 DSGVO)
- Right of objection (Article 21 DSGVO)
- Right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling (Article 22 DS Block Exemption Regulation)
If you believe that the processing of your data violates the data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority, which in Austria is the data protection authority, whose website you can find at https://www.dsb.gv.at/ .
Evaluation of visitor behaviour
In the following data protection declaration we inform you whether and how we evaluate data from your visit to this website. As a rule, the data collected is evaluated anonymously and we cannot deduce from your behaviour on this website any personal information about you.
You can find out more about the possibilities of contradicting this evaluation of visit data in the following data protection declaration.
When you subscribe to our newsletter you provide the above personal information and give us the right to contact you via email. We use the data stored within the scope of the registration to the newsletter exclusively for our newsletter and do not pass these on.
If you unsubscribe from our newsletter – you will find the link to unsubscribe at the bottom of each newsletter – then we will delete all data that was stored when you subscribed to our newsletter.
We send newsletters with MailChimp and use on this website functions of the newsletter service MailChimp of The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA to register for newsletters.
General information about MailChimp
Rocket Science Group LLC (MailChimp) maintains online platforms that enable our users to stay in touch with their subscribers, primarily via email. They allow users to upload email addresses and other subscriber profile information such as name, physical address and other demographic information to the MailChimp database. This information is used to send e-mails and to enable the use of certain other MailChimp features by these users. In accordance with published privacy policies, MailChimp shares some information with third parties to provide and support the services that MailChimp provides to users. MailChimp also shares some information with third party advertising partners to better understand users’ needs and interests so that more relevant content and targeted advertising can be provided to those users and other users.
If you register for our newsletter on our website, the data entered will be stored at MailChimp.
Deletion of your data
You may withdraw your consent to receive our newsletter at any time within the received e-mail by clicking on the link below. If you have unsubscribed by clicking on the unsubscribe link, your data will be deleted at MailChimp.
If you receive a newsletter via MailChimp, information such as IP address, browser type and e-mail program will be stored to give us information about the performance of our newsletter. MailChimp can determine whether the email has arrived, whether it has been opened and whether links have been clicked by using the images called web beacons (details can be found at https://kb.mailchimp.com/reports/about-open-tracking) integrated in the HTML emails. All this information is stored on the servers of MailChimp, not on this website.
MailChimp order data processing contract
We have signed a contract with MailChimp for the Data Processing Addendum. This contract serves to secure your personal data and ensures that MailChimp complies with the applicable data protection regulations and does not pass on your personal data to third parties.
More information about this contract can be found at http://mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/.
We use Google Fonts of the company Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website. We have integrated the Google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server, not on Google’s server. This means that there is no connection to Google’s server and therefore no data transfer or storage.
What are Google Fonts?
Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is an interactive directory with more than 800 fonts provided by Google LLC for free use. With Google Fonts you could use the fonts without uploading them to your server. But to prevent any transfer of information to the Google server, we downloaded the fonts to our server. In this way, we comply with data protection regulations and do not send any data to Google Fonts.
Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. So we have unlimited access to a sea of fonts and can get the most out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other questions at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=221091551.
We use Google Fonts of the company Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website.
You don’t need to sign in or enter a password to use Google fonts. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google Account, don’t worry that your Google Account information will be transmitted to Google while using Google Fonts. Google collects and stores information about your use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and fonts. We’ll take a closer look at how the data is stored.
Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?
With Google Fonts, we can use fonts on our own website, and don’t have to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts is an important building block to keep the quality of our website high. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web and this saves data volume and is a great advantage especially for use on mobile devices. When you visit our site, the small file size ensures fast loading time. Google Fonts are also known as secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can partially distort texts or entire web pages optically. Thanks to the fast Content Delivery Network (CDN), there are no cross-platform problems with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all popular browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod).
So we use Google Fonts to make our entire online service as beautiful and consistent as possible. According to Art. 6 para. 1 f lit. F DSGVO, this already represents a “legitimate interest” in the processing of personal data. In this case, the term “legitimate interest” refers to legal as well as economic or ideational interests that are recognised by the legal system.
Which data is stored by Google?
When you visit our website, the fonts are downloaded via a Google server. This external call transmits data to the Google server. In this way, Google also recognises that you or your IP address is visiting our website. The Google Fonts API was developed to reduce the collection, storage and use of end-user information to what is necessary for the efficient delivery of fonts. API also stands for “Application Programming Interface” and serves, among other things, as a data transmitter in the software sector.
Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests at Google and is therefore protected. Google can determine the popularity of the fonts through the collected usage figures. Google publishes the results on internal analysis pages such as Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which web pages use Google fonts. This data is published in Google Fonts’ BigQuery database. BigQuery is a Google web service for companies that want to move and analyze large amounts of data.
However, it should also be remembered that each Google Font Request also automatically transmits information such as IP address, language settings, browser screen resolution, browser version and browser name to the Google servers. It is not clear whether this data is also stored or not, and Google does not communicate this information unambiguously.
How long and where is the data stored?
Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on your servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This allows us to use the fonts using a Google stylesheet. A stylesheet is a style sheet that can be used to quickly and easily change the design or font of a website, for example.
The font files are stored on Google for one year. Google’s goal is to improve the loading time of websites. If millions of websites refer to the same fonts, they are buffered after the first visit and immediately reappear on all other websites visited later. Sometimes, Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage, and improve design.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is viewed. To delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=en&tid=221091551. In this case, you will only prevent data storage if you do not visit our site.
Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. So we can have unlimited access to a sea of fonts and get the most out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other questions at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=221091551. Although Google deals with data protection issues there, it does not contain really detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult (almost impossible) to get really precise information about stored data from Google.
You can also read about which data is basically collected by Google and for what purpose this data is used at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/ .
On this website we use Google Analytics from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to statistically evaluate visitor data. Google Analytics uses target-oriented cookies for this purpose.
Cookies from Google Analytics
- Expiry time: 2 years
- Use: Differentiation of website visitors

- Sample value: 1
Our concern in the sense of the DSGVO is the improvement of our offer and our web appearance. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised. Data processing is based on the statutory provisions of § 96 Para. 3 TKG and Art. 6 EU-DSGVO Para. 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO.
Deactivation of data collection by Google Analytics
You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
Google Analytics add-on for data processing
We have concluded a direct customer contract with Google for the use of Google Analytics by accepting the “add-on for data processing” in Google Analytics.
