Privacy notice

Duty of information

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We only process your data in accordance with the law (the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] and  the Austrian Telekommunikationsgesetz [Telecommunications Act] 2003 [TKG]). This notice provides you with information on the most important aspects of data processing in relation to our website. 

When visiting our website, your IP address, and the start and end time of the session, are stored for the duration of the session. This is for technical reasons and represents a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Unless stated otherwise below, we do not process these data any further.

Contacting us

If you contact us by submitting a form on our website or by e-mail, we will store the data you provide for a period of six months for the purposes of handling your enquiry, and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share these data without your consent. 


Our website uses cookies. These are small text files which are saved on your end device with the help of the browser. They do not harm your system.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. They enable us to recognise your browser when you visit our site again.

If you do not wish this to happen, you can adjust your browser settings to inform you about cookie placement and allow them on a case-by-case basis.

If you deactivate cookies, some functions of our website may not be available.

Web analysis

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. For this purpose, cookies are used to analyse how visitors use the website. The information gathered is transferred to the service provider’s server, where it is stored.

You can prevent this by changing the appropriate setting in the browser options so that cookies are no longer saved.

We have concluded a data processing agreement for this purpose with the service provider.

Your IP address will be recorded but immediately pseudonymized (e.g. by removing the last 8 bits). This means that only rough localisation is possible.

Data processing takes place on the basis of the legal provisions of section 96(3) TKG as well as Art 6(1)(a) (consent) and/or (f) (legitimate interest) GDPR.

Our concern within the meaning of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offering and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, user data are pseudonymized.

User data are stored for a period of 36 months.

Your rights

With regard to the data stored with us, you have basic rights to information, correction, erasure, restriction, data portability, revocation of consent and withdrawal. If you believe that processing of your personal data violates data protection law or otherwise impinges on your rights under data protection law, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with us ( or the Austrian Data Protection Authority.
