In addition to the above, we receive some data automatically for technical reasons whenever you visit our website. Every time a user accesses our website or retrieves a file, access data about this process are stored in the form of log files. The following data are collected in this case:

- the amount of data transferred;
- the name of the accessed file or page;

- a message about why a retrieval may have failed;
- if necessary, your computer’s operating system and browser software. These data are necessary for us for technical reasons. They allow us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security.
Our website uses so-called “cookies”. These are harmless small text files that are stored on your device via the browser.
If you do not consent to this, you can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and to allow it only in individual cases.
Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website.
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses targeted cookies.
You may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Contract data processing
We have entered into a contract data processing agreement with Google.
Your IP address will be collected, but it will be immediately pseudonymised by deleting the last 8 bits. As a result, only a rough localisation is possible.
The data processing takes place on the basis of the statutory provisions of Section 96(3) of the TKG and Article 6(1)(a) (Consent) and/or (f) (Legitimate Interest) of the GDPR.
Our concern in the sense of the GDPR (Legitimate Interest) is the improvement of our offering and our web presence. The privacy of our users is important to us. Therefore, the user data are pseudonymised [pseudonymisation is recommended in the legal ground “Legitimate Interest”; this must be clarified with the web analytics service].
The user data are retained for a period of 14 months.

SSL data security
Any personal information you give us will be transmitted in encrypted (SSL) form over the internet. An encrypted connection can be recognised by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://”. If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you provide to us cannot be read by third parties.
We use technical and organisational measures to secure our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification and distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. You should always keep your access information confidential and close the browser window when you stop communicating with us, especially if you share your computer with others.
In principle, you have the right of access, rectification, erasure, restriction, data portability, withdrawal and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or if your claims related to data protection law have otherwise been violated in some way, you may submit a complaint to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the Data Protection Authority (Wickenburggasse 8, A-1080 Vienna, email: email@example.com).
Information and contact
You retain control of all personal information you provide to us. Upon request, we are happy to inform you in writing whether and what personal data are stored by us. In this case, you may also request the erasure of your stored data, unless they are required for the settlement of contractual relations between you and us or we are legally obliged to store them or we need the data to defend against any liability claims.

Use of reCAPTCHA
To protect input forms on our site, we use the “reCAPTCHA” service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter: “Google”). By using this service, we can distinguish whether the corresponding input is of human origin or constitutes abuse by automated machine processing.
As far as we are aware, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behaviour of the website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and visit duration, cookies, depiction instructions and scripts, the input behaviour of the user and the mouse movements in the area of the “reCAPTCHA” checkbox are transferred to “Google”.
Among other things, Google uses this information to digitise books and other print products as well as to optimise services like Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and street name recognition).
The IP address transmitted during “reCAPTCHA” will not be merged with other Google data unless you are logged into your Google account while you are using the “reCAPTCHA” plug-in. If you wish to stop this transfer and storage of data about you and your behaviour on our website by “Google”, you must log out of “Google” before you visit our website or use the “reCAPTCHA" plug-in.
