Relevant legal basics

Below you will find an overview of the legal bases of the GDPR, on the basis of which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, national data protection requirements may apply in your or our country of residence or domicile. Furthermore, if more specific legal bases are relevant in individual cases, we will inform you of this in the data protection declaration.

  • Consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a) GDPR) - The data subject has given their consent to the processing of their personal data for a specific purpose or for several specific purposes.
  • Fulfillment of contract and pre-contractual inquiries (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 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 that are carried out at the request of the data subject.
  • Legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) GDPR) - The processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the person responsible or a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, outweigh this.

In addition to the data protection regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation, national data protection regulations apply in Austria. This includes in particular the Federal Act on the Protection of Natural Persons in the Processing of Personal Data (Data Protection Act – DSG). In particular, the Data Protection Act contains special regulations on the right to information, the right to rectification or deletion, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission as well as automated decision-making in individual cases.

Safety measures

We will take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the law, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing, the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent to which the rights and freedoms of individuals are threatened to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.

Measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling the physical and electronic access to the data as well as their access, input, transfer, availability and segregation. We have also set up procedures to ensure the enjoyment of data subject rights, the erasure of data and responses to the threat to data. 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.

Shortening of the IP address: If IP addresses are processed by us or by the service providers and technologies used and the processing of a complete IP address is not necessary, the IP address will be shortened (also known as "IP masking"). The last two digits or the last part of the IP address after a point are removed or replaced by placeholders. The purpose of shortening the IP address is to prevent or make it much more difficult to identify a person based on their IP address.

SSL encryption (https): In order to protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use SSL encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address line of your browser.

Transmission of personal data

As part of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transmitted to other bodies, companies, legally independent organizational units or persons or that it is disclosed to them. The recipients of this data can include, for example, 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 appropriate contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data that serve to protect your data.

Data processing in third countries

If we process data in a third country (ie, outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or processing in the context of the use of third party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, entities or companies takes place, this is done only in accordance with the legal requirements.

Deletion of data

The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements as soon as your consent to processing is revoked or other permissions are no longer applicable (e.g. if the purpose of processing this data no longer applies or it is not required for the purpose). If the data is not deleted because it is required for other, legally permissible purposes, its processing will be limited to these purposes. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be stored for commercial or tax reasons or whose storage is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person.

Single sign-on login

"Single sign-on" or "single sign-on registration or "authentication" refers to procedures that allow users to log in with the help of a user account with a provider of single sign-on procedures (e.g a social network), also with our online offer. A prerequisite for single sign-on authentication is that the user is registered with the respective single sign-on provider and enters the required access data in the online form provided for this purpose, or is already registered with the single sign-on provider and confirm the single sign-on registration via the button.

The authentication takes place directly with the respective single sign-on provider. As part of such authentication, we receive a user ID with the information that the user is logged in to the respective single sign-on provider under this user ID and an ID that we can no longer use for other purposes (so-called "user handle "). Whether additional data is transmitted to us depends solely on the single sign-on procedure used, the selected data releases as part of the authentication and also on which data users have in the privacy or other settings of the user account with the single sign On providers have released. Depending on the single sign-on provider and the choice of the user, it can be different data, usually the e-mail address and the user name. The password entered as part of the single sign-on procedure at the single sign-on provider is neither visible to us nor is it stored by us.

Users are asked to note that their information stored by us can be automatically compared with their user account with the single sign-on provider, but this is not always possible or actually takes place. For example, if the user's e-mail address changes, they must change it manually in their user account with us.

If agreed with the users, we can use the single sign-on registration in the context of or before the fulfillment of the contract, insofar as the users have been asked to do so, process it within the framework of consent and otherwise use it on the basis of our legitimate interests and those of the interests of the users in an effective and secure registration system.

If users decide that they no longer want to use the connection to their user account with the single sign-on provider for the single sign-on process, they must cancel this connection within their user account with the single sign-on provider. If users want to delete their data from us, they must cancel their registration with us.

Online marketing

We process personal data for online marketing purposes, which can include, in particular, the marketing of advertising space or the presentation of advertising and other content (collectively referred to as "content") based on the potential interests of users and the measurement of their effectiveness.

For these purposes, so-called usersprofile is created and stored in a file (so-called "cookie") or similar processes are used by means of which the user information relevant for the presentation of the aforementioned content is stored. This information can include, for example, content viewed, websites visited, online networks used, but also communication partners and technical information such as the browser used, the computer system used and information on usage times and functions used. If users have consented to the collection of their location data, this can also be processed.

The IP addresses of the users are also saved. However, we use available IP masking procedures (ie pseudonymization by shortening the IP address) to protect users. In general, no clear user data (such as e-mail addresses or names) are stored as part of the online marketing process, but pseudonyms. This means that we and the providers of the online marketing process do not know the actual identity of the users, only those in theirs Proinformation stored in files.

The information in the ProFiles are usually stored in the cookies or by means of similar procedures. These cookies can later generally also be read on other websites that use the same online marketing process and analyzed for the purpose of displaying content, as well as supplemented with further data and stored on the server of the online marketing process provider.

Exceptionally, plain data can den Profiles are assigned. This is the case, for example, if the users are members of a social network whose online marketing processes we use and the network Profile that connects the user to the above information. We ask you to note that users can make additional agreements with the providers, e.g. by giving their consent during registration.

In principle, we only have access to summarized information about the success of our advertisements. However, in the context of so-called conversion measurements, we can examine which of our online marketing methods led to a so-called conversion, ie, for example, to a contract with us. The conversion measurement is used solely to analyze the success of our marketing efforts.

Unless otherwise stated, we ask you to assume that the cookies used will be stored for a period of two years.

affiliateProprograms and affiliate links

We include so-called affiliate links or other references (which may include, for example, search masks, widgets or discount codes) to the offers and services of third parties in our online offer (collectively referred to as “affiliate links”). If users follow the affiliate links or then take advantage of the offers, we may receive a Provision or other benefits (collectively referred to as “Provision").

In order to be able to track whether the users have taken advantage of the offers of an affiliate link used by us, it is necessary for the respective third-party providers to know that the users have followed an affiliate link used within our online offer. The assignment of the affiliate links to the respective business transactions or to other actions (e.g. purchases) serves solely the purpose of Provision billing and will be revoked as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose.

For the purposes of the aforementioned assignment of the affiliate links, the affiliate links can be supplemented by certain values ​​that are part of the link or otherwise, eg in a cookie, can be stored. The values ​​may include, in particular, the source website (referrer), the time, an online identifier of the operator of the website on which the affiliate link was located, an online identifier of the respective offer, the type of link used, the type of offer and an online user ID.

Presence in social networks (social media)

We maintain an online presence within social networks and process user data in this context in order to communicate with the users active there or to offer information about us.

We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside of the European Union. This can result in risks for the user because it could make it more difficult to enforce the users' rights, for example.

Furthermore, user data is usually processed within social networks for market research and advertising purposes. For example, based on user behavior and the resulting interests of the userprofile are created. The usageprofile can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the user. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usageprofiles, data is also stored independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

For a detailed description of the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of opting out (opt-out), we refer to the privacy statements and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of data subject 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.
