We have drawn up this data protection declaration (version 14.09.2019-211101888) in order to explain to you, in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and the Data Protection Act (DSG), what information we collect, how we use data and what decision-making options you have as a visitor to this website.
Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical. But we have tried to describe the most important things as simple and clear as possible.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.
When you visit our website as you are doing now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically saves data such as
- the address (URL) of the accessed web page
- Browser and browser version
- the operating system used
- the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
- the host name and IP address of the device from which access is made
- Date and time in files (web server log files).
Usually web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of illegal behaviour.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
What exactly are cookies?
Whenever you surf the Internet, you use a browser. Some well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.
Cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you visit our site again, your browser transmits the “user-related” information back to our site. Thanks to the cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your accustomed standard settings. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.
There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner sites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie is unique because each cookie stores different data. The expiration time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, trojans or other “pests”. Cookies also cannot access information on your PC.
This is how cookie data can look like, for example:
- Name: _ga
- Expiry period: 2 years
- Usage: Differentiation of website visitors
- Example value: GA1.2.1326744211.152211101888
A browser should support the following minimum sizes:
- A cookie should be able to contain at least 4096 bytes
- At least 50 cookies should be able to be stored per domain
- A total of at least 3000 cookies should be able to be stored
What types of cookies are there?
You can distinguish 4 types of cookies:
Absolutely necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user places a product in the shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and only proceeds to checkout later. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.
These cookies collect information about user behaviour and whether the user receives any error messages. In addition, these cookies also measure the loading time and the behaviour of the website with different browsers.
These cookies ensure a better user experience. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are stored.
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to deliver customized advertising to the user. This can be very practical, but also very annoying.
Usually the first time you visit a website, you will be asked which of these types of cookies you wish to accept. And of course this decision is also stored in a cookie.
How can I delete cookies?
If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser when you change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:
If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether you want to allow it or not. The procedure varies depending on the browser. The best thing to do is to look for the instructions in Google using the search term “Delete Chrome cookies” or “Disable Chrome cookies” in the case of a Chrome browser, or replace the word “Chrome” with the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari.
What about my privacy?
The so-called “cookie guidelines” have been in place since 2009. This states that the storage of cookies requires the consent of the website visitor (i.e. you). Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these guidelines. In Austria, however, this directive has been transposed into § 96 (3) of the Telecommunications Act (TKG).
If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called “HTTP State Management Mechanism”.
Storage of personal data
Personal information that you submit to us electronically on this website, such as your name, e-mail address, postal address or other personal information when submitting a form or comments on the blog, together with the time and IP address, will only be used by us for the purpose stated in each case, will be kept securely stored and will not be disclosed to third parties.
We use your personal data therefore only for communication with those visitors who expressly wish to contact us and for processing the services and products offered on this website. We will not pass on your personal data without your consent, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful behaviour.
If you send us personal data by e-mail – thus off this website – we cannot guarantee secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential data by e-mail without encryption.
Rights under the basic data protection regulation
In accordance with the provisions of the DSGVO and the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG), you are basically entitled to the following rights:
- Right of rectification (Article 16 DSGVO)
- Right of cancellation (“right to be forgotten”) (Article 17 DPA)
- Right to restrict processing (Article 18 DSGVO)
- Right of notification – Obligation to notify in connection with the correction or deletion of personal data or the restriction of processing (Article 19 DPA)
- Right to data transferability (Article 20 DSGVO)
- Right of objection (Article 21 DSGVO)
- Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling (Article 22 DPA)
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, which in Austria is the data protection authority, whose website you can find at https://www.dsb.gv.at/.
Evaluation of the visitor behaviour
In the following data protection declaration we inform you whether and how we evaluate data of your visit to this website. The evaluation of the collected data is usually anonymous and we cannot deduce your identity from your behaviour on this website.
You can find out more about how to object to this evaluation of visit data in the following data protection declaration.
TLS encryption with https
We use https to transmit data tap-proof on the Internet (data protection through technology design article 25 paragraph 1 DSGVO). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this data transmission security by the small lock symbol in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the https scheme (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.
We use Google Fonts from the company Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website.
You do not need to sign in or set a password to use Google fonts. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google Account, you don’t need to worry about your Google Account information being submitted to Google while using Google Fonts. Google tracks the use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this information securely. We’ll be taking a closer look at what exactly this data storage looks like.
What are Google Fonts?
Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is an interactive directory of more than 800 fonts provided by Google LLC for free use.
Many of these fonts are published under the SIL Open Font License, while others are published under the Apache license. Both are free software licenses. So we can use them freely without paying royalties.
Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?
With Google Fonts we can use fonts on our own website, and do not have to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts is an important component to keep the quality of our website high. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web, which saves data volume and is a great advantage especially for use on mobile devices. When you visit our site, the low file size ensures a fast loading time. Furthermore, Google fonts are so-called secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can visually distort some texts or entire web pages. Thanks to the fast Content Delivery Network (CDN), there are no cross-platform problems with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all major browsers ( Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). So we use Google Fonts to make our entire online service as beautiful and consistent as possible.
Which data is stored by Google?
When you visit our website, the fonts are reloaded via a Google server. This external call transfers data to the Google servers. In this way Google also recognizes that you or your IP address is visiting our website. The Google Fonts API was developed to reduce the collection, storage and use of end user data to what is necessary for the efficient provision of fonts. By the way, API stands for “Application Programming Interface” and serves, among other things, as a data transmitter in the software sector.
Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests with Google and is therefore protected. Google can determine the popularity of the fonts through the collected usage figures. Google publishes the results on internal analysis pages, such as Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites use Google fonts. This data is published in Google Fonts’ BigQuery database. BigQuery is a web service from Google for companies that want to move and analyse large amounts of data.
However, it should also be noted that each Google Font request automatically sends information such as IP address, language settings, browser screen resolution, browser version and browser name to the Google servers. Whether this data is also stored cannot be clearly determined or is not clearly communicated by Google.
How long and where is the data stored?
Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on your servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This allows us to use the fonts using a Google style sheet. A stylesheet is a style template that allows you to easily and quickly change, for example, the design or font of a web page.
The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google’s goal is to improve the loading time of web pages. When millions of web pages link to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and reappear immediately on all other web pages visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage and improve design.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is called up. To delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=deid=211101888. In this case you only prevent data storage if you do not visit our site.
Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unlimited access to all fonts. So we have unlimited access to a sea of fonts and can thus get the most out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other questions at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=211101888. Although Google addresses privacy issues there, it doesn’t provide really detailed information about data storage. It’s relatively difficult (almost impossible) to get really detailed information from Google about stored data.
You can also find out which data is generally collected by Google and what this data is used for at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
We use Google Analytics from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on this website to statistically evaluate visitor data. Google Analytics uses target-oriented cookies for this purpose.
Cookies from Google Analytics
- Expiry period: 2 years
- Usage: Differentiation of website visitors
- Example value: GA1.2.1326744211.152211101888
- Expiration time: 24 hours
- Usage: Differentiation of website visitors
- Example value: GA1.2.1687193234.152211101888

- Example value: 1
Our concern in terms of the DSGVO is the improvement of our offer and our web presence. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised. The data processing is based on the legal provisions of § 96 para. 3 TKG and Art 6 EU-DSGVO para. 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO.
Deactivation of data collection by Google Analytics
You can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Google Analytics add-on for data processing
We have concluded a direct customer agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics by accepting the “data processing addendum” in Google Analytics.
More about the data processing add-on for Google Analytics can be found here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3379636?hl=detm_id=ad
Google Analytics IP anonymization
We have implemented the IP address anonymisation of Google Analytics on this website. This function was developed by Google so that this website can comply with the applicable data protection regulations and recommendations of local data protection authorities if they prohibit the storage of the complete IP address. The anonymization or masking of the IP address takes place as soon as the IP addresses arrive in the Google Analytics data collection network and before the data is saved or processed.
More information on IP anonymization can be found at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=de.
Google Analytics reports on demographic characteristics and interests
We have enabled the advertising reporting features in Google Analytics. The demographic and interest reports include information about age, gender and interests. This allows us to get a better picture of our users without having to associate this information with individual people. You can learn more about the advertising features at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3450482?hl=de_ATtm_id=ad.
You can stop using the activities and information of your Google Account by selecting the checkbox under “Advertising settings” on https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.
Google Analytics deactivation link
If you click on the following deactivation link, you can prevent Google from recording further visits to this website. Attention: Deleting cookies, using the incognito/private mode of your browser, or using another browser will result in data being collected again.
