The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based.

3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

The Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies, which are required for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of his services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this Data Privacy Statement.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Google Double Click Cookie

This website also uses the so-called DoubleClick cookie within the scope of the application of Google Analytics (see below), which enables your browser to be recognised when you visit other websites. The information generated by the cookie about your visit to this website is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address is thereby shortened by activating IP anonymisation on this website prior to transmission within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The anonymised IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Google will use this information to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services associated with website use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. You can deactivate the use of cookies by Google by calling up the advertising preferences.Alternatively, users can disable the use of cookies by third parties by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative's disable page. You can also prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting your browser software settings accordingly, but we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. Further information on data protection at Google can be found here.

Google Tag Manager

We also use the Google Tag Manager to manage usage-based advertising services. The Tag Manager tool itself is a cookie-free domain and does not collect any personal information. It is a tool that triggers other tags that may collect data (see above). If you have disabled it at the domain or cookie level, it will remain disabled for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

We may disclose your personal data to third parties if you wish to do so (request for an offer or quotation), if this is otherwise necessary for the provision of the service you have requested, or if we have expressly informed you that your data will be disclosed.

The processing of the data entered in the request for quotation is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke any consent you have given at any time. For this purpose an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
