Privacy policy

The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of national and international legal provisions (GDPR, DSGVO, TKG 2003). In this data protection information we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the framework of our website.

If you contact us via the form on the  Website or via e-mail, the data you provide will be stored for six months for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

Storage of access data
On pages of the provider (, server location: Vienna, Austria) so-called log files are created for each requested file/page each time the website is accessed. In these log files, the data is stored pseudonymised so that it is no longer considered personal data in the sense of the DSGVO. These log files are automatically deleted by the provider after two months.

These log records are also used  non for statistical purposes.

Only session cookies are set on our website, which are deleted when the browser is closed.

Web Analysis
Our website does not use  web analysis tools.

your rights
You are basically entitled to the rights of information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria this is the  data protection authority  .
