Right to information

According to § 24 f ÖDSG, you have the right to request confirmation from us free of charge as to whether personal data relating to you will be processed by us. If this is the case, you have the right to receive information about this personal data.

Right to rectification

According to § 8 (2) ÖDSG, you have the right to demand the rectification of incorrect personal data relating to you.

Right to deletion

According to § 8 (1) ÖDSG, you have the right to request the deletion of personal data, the storage of which is no longer necessary with regard to the principle of proportionality.

Disclosure of data to third parties

As a matter of principle, we do not pass on the personal data provided to us to third parties, i.e. in particular not to third parties for the purposes of advertising.

However, we cooperate with third parties for the operation of these web pages. It is thus possible that such third parties gain knowledge of personal data. We carefully select our service providers – particularly with regard to data privacy and data security – and take all measures required under data protection law for permissible data processing.

Data processing in Switzerland

We only process data within Switzerland. However, some of our service providers, whose plug-ins and tools we may use, process data outside the EU. This will be disclosed within the framework of this privacy policy when providing information on the plug-ins / tools used.

Right of appeal

With regard to your protection, you have the right to appeal according to § 26 ÖDSG.

Server log files

When you access our website, the company commissioned by us to operate the website processes and stores technical information about the device you are using (operating system, screen resolution and other non-personal features) and the browser (version, language settings), in particular the public IP address of the computer with which you visit our website, together with the date and time of access. The IP address is a unique numeric address via which your device sends or retrieves data to and from the Internet. As a rule, neither we nor our service provider know who is using an IP address unless you provide us with information during the use of our website that enables us to identify you. Furthermore, a user may be identified if legal action is taken against them (e.g. in the event of attacks against our website) and we gain knowledge of his or her identity as part of the investigation procedure. As a rule, you do not have to worry that we will be able to attribute your IP address to you.

Our service provider processes non-personal data for statistical purposes, in order for us to track which devices are used with which settings to visit our website in order to optimise them if necessary. The statistics therefore do not contain any personal data. The basis for creating the statistics is our interest in improving and operating our business economically.

The IP address also enables you to access and utilise our website from a technical perspective, and it allows us to recognise and block attacks against our service provider or our website. Unfortunately, attacks aimed at harming the operators of websites or their users happen regularly (e.g. denial of access, spying on data, spreading malicious software (e.g. viruses) or other illegal purposes). Such attacks would impair the proper functioning of the data centre of the company commissioned by us, as well as the use of our website or its functionality and the security of visitors to our website. The processing of the IP address including the time of access is done to prevent such attacks. With this processing, we pursue the legitimate interest through our service provider of ensuring the functionality of our website and to fend off illegal attacks against us and the visitors to our website, as the basis for ensuring the improvement as well as the economic operation of our business.

The stored IP data is deleted (by anonymisation) when it is no longer needed for the detection or blocking of an attack.

Newsletter

If you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, the data you provide will be processed for the creation and dispatch of the newsletter and for proof of subscription to our newsletter until your revocation. The basis for processing is your consent. To receive the newsletter, you must click on the confirmation link in the verification e-mail that we send you after your registration, which enables us to verify your consent. By clicking on the corresponding link, we process the public IP address of the computer from which the link is accessed, together with the date and time of the click. We process this data to provide proof that you have confirmed that you wish to receive our e-mail newsletter.

Our legitimate interest in this is the fulfilment of our duty to provide evidence of your subscription.

You can revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. You will find a corresponding link at the end of each newsletter.

We delete your data when you unsubscribe from the newsletter. The data that we require as proof that you have consented to the sending of the newsletter will be deleted after expiry of the limitation period for corresponding obligations to provide evidence.

For our newsletter we use an external service provider who acts as an order processor for us. This is Mailchimp. This company is based in the USA and is a member of the Privacy Shield.
