However, should IP anonymisation be activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in Ireland only in exceptional cases and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of the website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports on website activity and to provide other services related to the use of the website and of the Internet to the operator of the website. The IP address transmitted from your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data held by Google.
Commissioned data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing and fully implement the strict rules of the Austrian data protection authorities regarding the use of Google Analytics.
We use the functionality “Activation of IP anonymisation” on this website. However, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in Ireland only in exceptional cases and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of the website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports on website activity and to provide other services related to the use of the website and of the Internet to the operator of the website. The IP address transmitted from your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data held by Google.
This website collects and stores data for marketing and optimisation purposes by using the technologies of etracker GmbH (www.etracker.com). These data can be used in order to create user profiles under a pseudonym. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files which are saved locally in the cache of the user’s Internet browser. Cookies allow for the recognition of the web browser. The data collected with etracker technologies will not be used to identify the visitor of the website and will not be combined with the personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without the formal approval of the person concerned. The collection and storage of data may be refused at any time with future effect.
Embedded YouTube videos
YouTube videos are embedded on this website, which are stored on www.youtube.com and playable directly from our website. When playing the videos YouTube cookies will be saved on your computer and data will be transmitted to the YouTube operator Google LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA ("Google"). To the extent that you play videos stored on YouTube, the following data at a minimum will be transmitted to Google: IP address and cookie ID, the specific address of our accessed page, language settings of the browser, system date and time of access as well as the identification of your browser.

Find out which data will be recorded by Google and how this information will be used under https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
Detailed instructions on the administration of your own data in the context of Google products can be found here.
Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to display our content correctly in a visually appealing way in all browsers, we use script and font libraries on this website, such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are copied to the cache of your browser to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, the content is displayed in a standard font. Accessing script or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible — however currently not clear if and, if applicable, for which purposes — that operators of such libraries are collecting data.
Use of social plugins
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) belonging to the social network Facebook, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). An overview of Facebook plugins and how they look can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
For increased protection of your data during your visit to our website, the plugins are incorporated into the site with a “2 click” or “Shariff” solution. This incorporation guarantees that no connection with the servers of Facebook is established when a page of our website is accessed. Your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Facebook only if you activate the plugins and consent to data transmission. The content of each plugin is transmitted directly to your browser and incorporated in the page. The plugin then transmits the data (including your IP address) to Facebook. We have no control over the volume of data that Facebook collects via plugins. As far as we know, Facebook definitely receives information on which of our websites you are currently accessing and those you have accessed previously. Due to the embedded plugin, Facebook will receive the information that your browser has accessed the relevant page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not logged in at the time. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA by your browser and saved there. If you interact with the plugins, for example, if you activate the "Like" button, the corresponding information will also be transmitted directly to a Facebook server and saved there. In addition, the information will be published on Facebook and displayed to your contacts.
If you are a member of the social network Facebook and want to limit the data collection via our webpages as well as the merger of your user data with the data stored about you on the social network Facebook, you should log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also fully prevent Facebook plugins from loading on your browser with add-ons for your browser in the future, e.g. with the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).
Use of the dispatch service Mailworx
Our website will offer you the option to subscribe to our newsletter in the future. The newsletter will be dispatched via “Mailworx”, a newsletter dispatch platform from the Austrian provider EWORX NETWORK & INTERNET GMBH, Hanriederstraße 25, A-4150 Rohrbach-Berg.
For your newsletter subscription, we need your e-mail address and a statement that you agree to receive the newsletter.

Mailworx records opening and clicking behaviour. The following information is tracked: Time of delivery, time of opening, duration of opening, IP address of opening, e-mail programme used (mail client), which link is clicked and the time of the click.
Our newsletter recipients’ e-mail addresses as well as their other data described within this notice will be stored on the servers of Mailworx in the EU. Mailworx will use this information for the dispatch and analysis of the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, Mailworx may use these data, according to their own information, to optimise or improve their own service, e.g. for the technological optimisation of dispatch and the display of the newsletters or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, Mailworx will not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them directly or disclose them to third parties.
We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this data protection notice so that it continually meets the current legal requirements or in order to add changes to our services to the data protection declaration, e.g. following the launch of new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply to your next visit.
Your rights of information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection
You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time. Furthermore, you have the right of correction, blocking or deletion of your personal data, with the exception of data storage legally required for business processes.
