The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal provisions (DSGVO, TKG 2003). You are generally entitled to the rights of information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and objection, provided that this does not conflict with any legal obligation to retain data. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection rights have been violated in any other way, please contact us. Of course, you can also complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.
Here we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the framework of our website:
Access data/log files
We (or our web space provider) collect data about each access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data include: Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
We only use the log data for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use due to concrete indications.
All forms on this website are primarily used for the visitor to contact us. All data entered is treated as strictly confidential and is not passed on to third parties. After submitting a form, the data entered is stored on the server for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case of follow-up questions, as well as being sent in an e-mail to the visitor and to the site operator for further processing. Optional input fields are provided to facilitate contact and subsequent correspondence. We make a point of only marking really necessary entries as mandatory fields.
If you give your consent, your name and e-mail address will be stored in our e-mail distribution list until further notice in order to be included in the newsletter, which contains promotional information, among other things. Consent to receive the newsletter can be revoked by clicking on the link at the end of each e-mail. As part of the registration process, we or our newsletter provider store the registration and confirmation time and the IP address of the user. We are legally obliged to log the registrations in order to be able to prove proper registration.
Messages within the scope of a contractual relationship do not fall into this category. This includes the sending of technical information, information on payment processing, queries about orders and comparable messages that you will receive even after unsubscribing from the newsletter.
Our newsletters are sent via European providers who are DSGVO-compliant.
The newsletter is sent using "MailChimp", a newsletter sending platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on MailChimp servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp may use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletters or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or pass the data on to third parties.
We trust in the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement and is thus committed to complying with EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, we have concluded a "Data Processing Agreement"This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users. This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process it on our behalf in accordance with its data protection provisions and, in particular, not to pass it on to third parties. You can read the data protection provisions of MailChimp view here.

All data processing steps involved in this process are carried out by companies that have assured us that the data will be processed in accordance with the GDPR.
If you choose to pay online, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd., 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland, to whom we will pass on the information you provided during the ordering process, together with information about your order (name, address, account number, bank sort code, credit card number if applicable, invoice amount, currency and transaction number) in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.

Web analysis with Google Analytics

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the user's browser will not be merged with other data from Google.
Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

The relationship with the web analytics provider is based on standard contractual clauses/an adequacy decision of the European Commission.

Our concern in terms of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website.
