Privacy Statement

The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the statutory provisions (DSGVO, TKG 2003). In this data protection information we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the framework of our website.

If you contact us via a form on the website or via e-mail, the data you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent and can be deleted at any time upon your request.

Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our services more user-friendly, more effective and safer.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases, or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies, which are necessary for the execution of the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions requested by you, are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Google Analytics
Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The information generated by the Google Analytics Cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.


IP Anonymisation
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This will cause Google to shorten your IP address within Member States of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.


You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:

Order Data Processing

We have concluded a corresponding contract with Google for order data processing. The relationship with the web analytics provider is based on the Privacy Shield agreement signed by Google.

Legal Basis
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is the legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit f DSGVO), which lies in the evaluation of the website and analysis of website activities. The anonymised user data is stored for a period of 26 months and then deleted.

Your Rights
You are entitled to the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. 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. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.
