The security of your personal data is important to me. I therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the statutory provisions (GDPR, TKG 2003). In this data protection information I inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the framework of my website.
How to contact me
Whenever you contact me via the form on the website or via email, your data will be stored for six months to allow processing of your enquiry and any follow-up questions. I will not pass on this data without your consent.
My website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device by your browser. They do not cause any detrimental effect.
If you do not want this, you can change the settings on your browser so that you are informed when cookies are saved and you approve them on a case-by-case basis.
Deactivating the cookies may limit the functionality of my website.
Web-Analytics / Google Analytics
My website uses Google Analytics, including the features of Universal Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
IP anonymisation (IP masking): Due to the not conclusively clarified legal situation regarding the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" is used on my website. Your IP address will therefore be shortened by Google before further use within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and will thus only be used anonymously.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
On my behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide me with further services associated with website and internet use.
Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that contents of third parties, such as videos from YouTube or map material from Google Maps are integrated within this online offer, which always presumes that these content providers (in the following referred to as "third-party providers") are able to perceive the user's IP address since, without the IP address, content could not be sent to the user's browser. Thus, the IP address is required for displaying content. I strive to use only such contents, whose respective offerers use the IP address only for the distribution of the contents. However, I have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as this is known to me, I inform the users about it.
In principle, you are entitled to the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.
