Data protection

The protection of your personal data is a matter of extraordinary importance to us. Your privacy has highest priority. For that reason, we treat your personal data confidentially in accordance with all the applicable and valid laws, together with this data protection declaration.

When you use this website, various pieces of personal information are collected, namely, data through which you are personally identified. The following Declaration of Data Protection elucidates which data are collected and why it is necessary. It also explains how this takes place and to what purpose.

We call your attention to the fact that data transmission via the internet, e.g. by sending emails, has deficits in security. Absolutely flawless protection from penetration by third parties is not always possible.

Tel: +43 2735 8209

The responsible website operator is the natural or legal person who decides about the purposes and the means of processing personal data, e.g. name, email addresses, etc. alone or together with others.


Revoking your acceptance of data processing

Many parts of processing data are possible only through your own express permission. You can revoke already granted permission at any and all times. To do this, an informal communication via email sent to us is sufficient. The legality of all data processing which takes place until such time as permission is revoked remains unaffected by the revocation.


Obtaining, Barring, Deleting of Information

Right to Transferability of Data

You have the right to obtain data which we automatically process on the basis of your permission or in the fulfillment of a contract, transmitted either to yourself or to a third party, in a format which is prevalent and machine-readable. Insofar as you demand a direct transmission of the data to a third party, this will be effected only if it is technically feasible.



For general security purposes and to protect the transmission of confidential data which you send to us, e.g. your orders and inquiries, this website uses SSL-encryption. An encoded / encrypted connection can be recognized when the address line begins with “https://” as well as through the padlock-symbol visible in your browser. As a result of this encryption, the data which you send to us cannot be read by third parties.

This offer uses social plugins of the social network, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. The plugins are recognizable in one of the Facebook logos (“f” – the terms “Like” “thumbs up” symbol) or are distinguished by the add-on “Facebook Social Plugin.”

If a user in this network calls up a website which contains such a plugin, his/her browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. The contents of the plugin are transferred directly to your browser and from there, connected to the website. Thereby, the provider has no influence over the extent of the data which Facebook captures with the help of this plugin.

The purpose and the extent of the data capture, as well as the further processing and use of the data by Facebook and the applicable rights and settings for purposes of protecting the privacy of the user, can be obtained at this address of Facebook: privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not wish for Facebook to capture data about him/her through the use of this online network, or connect it with Facebook member data, the user must log out of Facebook before using the online offer and delete the cookies. Other settings and revocation of capture and/or use of data for advertising purposes are also possible within the Facebook profile settings. The settings are functions of a given platform, which means they are accepted by all devices, whether desktop computers or mobile devices.


Facebook Pixel, Custome Audiences, Facebook Remarketing

Within our online offerings, a so-called Facebook-Pixel of the social network Facebook (headquarters: Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if they have premises in Europe, at Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland) is used.

Facebook is certified under the terms of the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby provides a guarantee to observe and maintain the European Data Protection laws and regulations.

Through aid of Facebook-Pixels, it is possible for Facebook, first, to determine the visitors of our online offerings as a target group for purposes of presenting advertisements (so-called Facebook ads). To such ends we used Facebook-Pixels in order to display our specifically selected Facebook ads only to such Facebook users who have shown interest in our online offerings or have specific features, e.g. interest in certain subjects or products which are ascertained by the websites which have been visited, which we in turn ascertain via Facebook, i.e. so-called Custom Audiences. With the aid of Facebook-Pixels, we also wish to make sure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interests of the user and are not merely an irritation. Through the help of Facebook-Pixels, furthermore, we can evaluate the effectiveness of our Facebook ads for statistical and market-research purposes by seeing whether users are led to our own website by means of a click in the Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).

The processing of data by Facebook is effected in the context of Facebook’s guidelines on the use and processing of data. In accordance with this, general information on displays of Facebook ads can be viewed at the Facebook use and processing of data:

Special information and details about Facebook-Pixels and their mode of functioning can be viewed in the Help Menu of Facebook at:

You can revoke the capture of your data by Facebook-Pixels and the use/processing of your data for purposes of Facebook ads. In order to determine which type of advertising displays can be presented to you by Facebook, you can call up the website which Facebook has displayed and then heed the instructions about settings of used-based advertisements:  The settings are functions of a platform, which means they are accepted by all devices, regardless whether desktop computer or mobile devices

– operating system used

– referrer URL

Contact Form

If you send us an inquiry on a contact form, your statements on that form, including the information you include in it, are saved for purposes of processing the inquiry and in case there are subsequent questions pertaining to it.

Processing your data in the contact form is thus effected exclusively on the basis of your permission (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this permission at any and all times. Nothing more than an informal notification sent to us via email is necessary. The legality of all data processing which takes place until such time as permission is revoked remains unaffected by this revocation.

The data submitted by you on the contact form remain with us until which time you demand that they be deleted; until you revoke the saving of your data; or the purpose of saving your data expires, e.g. once your inquiry has been answered. Compulsory legal regulations, in particular limitations of saving data, remain unaffected.

Google Web Fonts

This website uses unified display of writing scripts, so-called Web Fonts, which are provided by Google. When such a website is called up, your browser downloads the requisite Web Fonts into your browser cache in order to correctly display the presented texts and script types.

To this end, the browser you are using must connect to the servers of Google. In this way Google gains information that your IP-Address has called up our website. Using Google Web Fonts is effected in the interests of a unified and attractive display of our online offerings. This is a justifiable business interest as defined by the law: Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If your browser does not support Web Fonts, then a standard script will be used by your computer.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at: and in Google’s Data Protection Declaration:

Right of Objection

Insofar as we process the data in the context of overwhelmingly justifiable business interests as elucidated above, you are able to object to this, with effect on all future communication. If the processing takes place for purposes of direct marketing, you can exercise this right of objection at any and all times, in the manner outlined above. Insofar as the processing takes place for other purposes, you have the right of objection only if you present reasons which apply to your own specific situation.

Once you have exercised your right of objection, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we are able to demonstrate reasons to do so which are worthy of protecting and which, in that case, outweigh your interests and freedoms; or if the processing of the claim you assert, or its exercise, or its defense, serves legal necessities.

This does not apply if the processing serves purposes of direct marketing. In that case, we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose.
