The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore we process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (GDPR, TKG 2003). In this privacy policy we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing.

Contact us

If you contact us by email, the data you provide will be stored by us for six months in order to process the request and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not share these data without your consent.

If you contact us by phone and your request can be dealt with in the first contact, no data will be saved. If you contact us by phone and your request has to be processed internally, we will not forward personal data internally if this is organizationally possible.


Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device using the browser. Our cookies do no harm.

We use cookies to make our offer user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

If you do not want this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you allow this only in individual cases.

Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

Necessary cookies:

These cookies on our website include the technically necessary session cookie. The session cookie assigns the website visitor a unique, randomly generated value. This value is necessary for some functions, e.g. for submitting forms. Because spam bots that automatically send spam often do not process cookies and can therefore not send any forms.

Session cookies are deleted when the browser is closed.

A cookie is also set if you make your selection in the cookie banner.

Marketing cookies:

If you accept the marketing cookies, the YouTube videos at the homepage will be loaded.

Every time you access our website, your computer (end device) transmits the information listed below to our web hosting provider in order to enable you to visit the website.

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Time Zone Difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the requirement (concrete page)
  • Access Status / HTTP status code
  • each transmitted amount of data
  • Website from which the request comes
  • Browser and browser settings
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software

Our web hosting provider has chosen hosttech GmbH as a sub-processor and has concluded an order processing contract. The above data is therefore processed on servers in Switzerland or within the EU or EEA. A level of data protection comparable to EU law applies in Switzerland.

The above data fields are stored for a limited period of one week (server log files), whereby a personal reference from these data is not directly producible, since the personal reference of the associated IP address only by judicial decision by the Authority can be questioned if suspected of a crime with your provider. We use this data for the operation of our website, in particular to detect and eliminate website errors, to determine the utilization of the website and to make adjustments or improvements. The processing of the log files is exclusively fully automated through the use of state-of-the-art software, based on ISO 27001: 2013 and the IT Security Manual.

Manage and delete cookies

If you want to block or delete cookies, you can make these changes in the browser settings. To manage cookies, most browsers allow you to accept or reject all cookies or accept only certain types of cookies. You can also set it to ask you every time a website wants to save a cookie. The procedures for managing and deleting cookies vary, depending on which browser you use. To find out how to do this in a specific browser, you can use the built-in browser's help function.

HTTPS – SSL / TLS certificate

The website uses an SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt (Let's Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the non-profit Internet Security Research Group (ISRG). 1 Letterman Drive, Suite D4700, San Francisco, CA 94129) to transmit data in encrypted form. When you visit our website, an OCSP request is sent to Let's Encrypt. This OCSP request is used to check whether the certificate has been revoked. OCSP requests transmit your IP address and the user agent string (browser type indexing text) for your browser. Let's Encrypt does not use data from OCSP requests to create profiles or identify people. Logs are temporarily collected by your CDN provider for operational purposes, but are usually deleted in less than seven days. Subsets of the OCSP request logs may be retained for extended periods of time to investigate software errors or misuse. After the examination, all saved logs will be deleted.

Our website uses the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA for the integration of videos.

The video will only be loaded if you agree to the "Marketing" cookies. We have integrated the YouTube video with the extended data protection mode. In this case, YouTube still contacts Google's Double Click service, but according to Google's privacy policy, personal data is not evaluated.

If you click on the video, your IP address will be transmitted to YouTube and YouTube will find out that you have viewed the video. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information is also assigned to your user account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before viewing the video).

Google Fonts

We use so-called web fonts from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA on our website. We have integrated these locally via our server so that no connection to American servers is established and the fonts can be accessed in compliance with the GDPR.

Use of links

The website contains links to third party websites. As soon as you visit one of these pages, the privacy policy of this website is no longer valid. These sites use their own privacy policies and practices on the Internet. We encourage you to read these terms carefully before using the website.

Your rights

In principle, you have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and opposition. We will comply with any request regarding the protection of your rights without delay, at the latest within the statutory period of 1 month. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or if your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in a way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority. Barichgasse 40-42, 1080 Vienna, Tel +43 1 52 152-0, email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
