Data protection

Web hosting
Web hosting summary
👥 Affected: visitors to the website
🤝 Purpose: professional hosting of the website and security of operation
📓 Processed data: IP address, time of website visit, browser used and other data. You can find more details below or from the web hosting provider used.
📅 Storage period: depending on the respective provider, but usually 2 weeks
⚖️ Legal basis: Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interests)

What is web hosting?

When you visit websites these days, certain information - including personal data - is automatically created and stored, including on this website. This data should be processed as sparingly as possible and only with justification. By website, we mean the entirety of all websites on a domain, i.e. everything from the start page (homepage) to the very last subpage (like this one here). By domain we mean or

When you want to view a website on one screen, you use a program called a web browser. You probably know some web browsers by name: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari.

This web browser has to connect to another computer where the website's code is stored: the web server. The operation of a web server is a complicated and time-consuming task, which is why this is usually done by professional providers, the providers. These offer web hosting and thus ensure reliable and error-free storage of website data.

When the browser establishes a connection on your computer (desktop, laptop, smartphone) and while data is being transferred to and from the web server, personal data may be processed. On the one hand, your computer stores data; on the other hand, the web server must also store data for a period of time in order to ensure proper operation.

As an illustration:


Why do we process personal data?

It purposes of data processing are:

1.Professional hosting of the website and security of operation maintain operational and IT security

3.Anonymous evaluation of the access behavior to improve our offer and, if necessary, to prosecute or prosecute claims

Which data are processed?

Even while you are visiting our website, our web server, that is the computer on which this website is saved, usually automatically saves data such as

-the complete Internet address (URL) of the website called up (e.g.

-Browser and browser version (e.g. Chrome 87)

-the operating system used (e.g. Windows 10)

-the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL) (e.g.

-the host name and the IP address of the device from which access is made (e.g. COMPUTERNAME and

-Date and Time

in files, the so-called web server log files

How long will data be stored?

As a rule, the above data is stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot rule out that this data will be viewed by the authorities in the event of illegal behavior.

In short: your visit will be logged by our provider (company that runs our website on special computers (servers)), but we will not pass on your data without your consent!

Legal basis

The legality of the processing of personal data in the context of web hosting results from Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. and to be able to trace attacks and claims from them if necessary.

Cookies summary
👥 Affected: visitors to the website
🤝 Purpose: depending on the respective cookie. You can find more details on this below or from the manufacturer of the software that sets the cookie.
📓 Processed data: Depending on the cookie used. You can find more details on this below or from the manufacturer of the software that sets the cookie.
📅 Storage duration: depending on the respective cookie, can vary from hours to years
⚖️ Legal basis: Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent), Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR (legitimate interests)

What are cookies?

Our website uses HTTP cookies to save user-specific data.
In the following we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following data protection declaration.

Whenever you surf the Internet, you are using a browser. Well-known browsers are, for example, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Most websites save small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

One thing cannot be dismissed out of hand: Cookies are really useful little helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More precisely, they are HTTP cookies, as there are also other cookies for other areas of application. HTTP cookies are small files that our website stores on your computer. These cookie files are automatically placed in the cookie folder, which is the “brain” of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.

Cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you call up our site again, your browser transmits the "user-related" information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you the settings that you are used to. In some browsers each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.

The following graphic shows a possible interaction between a web browser such as B. Chrome and the web server. The web browser requests a website and receives a cookie back from the server, which the browser uses again as soon as another page is requested.


There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly from our side, third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie must be evaluated individually, as each cookie stores different data. The expiry 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 cannot access information on your PC either.

For example, cookie data can look like this:

Name: _ga
Value: GA1.2.1326744211.152321290245-9
Purpose: Differentiation of website visitors
Expiry date: after 2 years

A browser should be able to support these minimum sizes:

-At least 4096 bytes per cookie

-At least 50 cookies per domain

-At least 3000 cookies in total

What types of cookies are there?

The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the data protection declaration. At this point we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies.

There are 4 types of cookies:

Essential cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure the basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user puts a product in the shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and only goes to checkout later. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.

Appropriate cookies
These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. These cookies are also used to measure the loading time and the behavior of the website with different browsers.

Goal-oriented cookies
These cookies ensure better user-friendliness. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are saved.

Advertising cookies
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They serve to deliver customized advertising to the user. That can be very practical, but also very annoying.

Usually, when you visit a website for the first time, you will be asked which of these types of cookies you would like to allow. And of course this decision is also saved in a cookie.

If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called “HTTP State Management Mechanism”.

Purpose of processing via cookies

The purpose ultimately depends on the respective cookie. More details can be found below or from the manufacturer of the software that sets the cookie.

Which data are processed?

Cookies are little helpers for a wide variety of tasks. Unfortunately, it is not possible to generalize which data is stored in cookies, but we will inform you about the processed or stored data in the context of the following data protection declaration.

Storage duration of cookies

The storage duration depends on the respective cookie and is further specified under. Some cookies are deleted after less than an hour, others can remain on a computer for several years.

You also have an influence on the storage duration yourself. You can manually delete all cookies at any time using your browser (see also “Right to object” below). Furthermore, cookies that are based on consent will be deleted at the latest after you withdraw your consent, whereby the legality of storage remains unaffected until then.

Right of objection - how can I delete cookies?

You decide for yourself how and whether you want to use cookies. Regardless of which service or website the cookies originate from, you always have the option of deleting, deactivating or only partially accepting cookies. For example, you can block third-party cookies but allow all other cookies.

If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:

Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: manage cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. For each individual cookie, you can decide whether or not to allow the cookie. The procedure differs depending on the browser. It is best to search for the instructions in Google with the search term “delete cookies Chrome” or “deactivate cookies Chrome” in the case of a Chrome browser.

Legal basis

The so-called “cookie guidelines” have existed since 2009. It states that the storage of cookies requires your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these guidelines. In Austria, however, this directive was implemented in Section 96 (3) of the Telecommunications Act (TKG). In Germany, the cookie guidelines have not been implemented as national law. Instead, this guideline was largely implemented in Section 15 (3) of the Telemedia Act (TMG).

For absolutely necessary cookies, even if you have not given your consent. there are legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), which in most cases are of an economic nature. We want to provide visitors to the website with a pleasant user experience and for this certain cookies are often absolutely necessary.

Unless absolutely necessary cookies are used, this will only be done with your consent. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

In the following sections you will be informed in more detail about the use of cookies, provided that the software used uses cookies.

Web analytics
Web Analytics Privacy Policy Summary
👥 Affected: visitors to the website
🤝 Purpose: Evaluation of visitor information to optimize the website.
📓 Processed data: Access statistics that contain data such as the location of access, device data, access duration and time, navigation behavior, click behavior and IP addresses. You can find more details about this in the web analytics tool used.
📅 Storage period: depending on the web analytics tool used
⚖️ Legal basis: Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent), Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR (legitimate interests)

What is web analytics?

We use software on our website to evaluate the behavior of website visitors, known as web analytics or web analysis for short. In doing so, data is collected, which the respective analytic tool provider (also called tracking tool) stores, manages and processes. With the help of the data, analyzes of user behavior on our website are created and made available to us as the website operator. In addition, most tools offer various test options. For example, we can test which offers or content are best received by our visitors. We are showing you two different offers for a limited period of time. After the test (so-called A / B test) we know which product or which content our website visitors find more interesting. For such test procedures, as well as for other analytics procedures, user profiles can also be created and the data stored in cookies.

Why do we run web analytics?

With our website we have a clear goal in mind: we want to deliver the best website on the market for our industry. In order to achieve this goal, we want to offer the best and most interesting offer on the one hand and make sure that you feel comfortable on our website on the other. With the help of web analysis tools, we can take a closer look at the behavior of our website visitors and then improve our website accordingly for you and us. For example, we can see how old our visitors are on average, where they come from, when our website is most visited or which content or products are particularly popular. All of this information helps us to optimize the website and thus adapt it to your needs, interests and wishes.

Which data are processed?

The exact data that is saved naturally depends on the analysis tools used. But as a rule, for example, what content you view on our website, which buttons or links you click, when you call up a page, which browser you use, with which device (PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.) you click Visit website or which computer system you are using. If you have agreed that location data may also be collected, this can also be processed by the web analysis tool provider.

Your IP address is also saved. According to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), IP addresses are personal data. However, your IP address is usually stored pseudonymized (i.e. in an unrecognizable and abbreviated form). For the purpose of tests, web analysis and web optimization, no direct data, such as your name, age, address or email address, is saved. All of this data is stored pseudonymized if it is collected. In this way, you cannot be identified as a person.

The following example shows the functionality of Google Analytics as an example for client-based web tracking with JavaScript code.


How long the respective data is stored always depends on the provider. Some cookies only save data for a few minutes or until you leave the website, other cookies can save data for several years.

Duration of the data processing

We will inform you below about the duration of the data processing if we have further information. In general, we only process personal data for as long as is absolutely necessary for the provision of our services and products. If it is required by law, for example in the case of accounting, this storage period can also be exceeded.

Right to object

You also have the right and the option to revoke your consent to the use of cookies or third-party providers at any time. This works either via our cookie management tool or via other opt-out functions. For example, you can also prevent data collection by cookies by managing, deactivating or deleting cookies in your browser.

Legal basis

The use of web analytics requires your consent, which we obtained with our cookie popup. According to Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit.

In addition to consent, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing the behavior of website visitors and thus improving our offer technically and economically. With the help of web analytics, we recognize website errors, identify attacks and improve profitability. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) lit.f GDPR (legitimate interests). Nevertheless, we only use the tools if you have given your consent.

Since cookies are used in web analytics tools, we recommend that you read our general data protection declaration on cookies. To find out which of your data is stored and processed, you should read the data protection declarations of the respective tools.

Information on special web analytics tools can be found - if available - in the following sections.

To keep you up to date, we also use email marketing. If you have agreed to receive our e-mails or newsletters, your data will also be processed and stored. Email marketing is a subset of online marketing. News or general information about a company, product or service is sent via email to a specific group of people who are interested in it.

Basically, the registration for newsletters works with the help of the so-called "double opt-in procedure". After you have registered for our newsletter on our website, you will receive an e-mail via which you confirm the newsletter registration. This ensures that you own the e-mail address and that nobody has registered with a third-party e-mail address. We or a notification tool we use logs every single registration.

In addition, a log is also made when you make changes to your saved data.

Why do we use email marketing?

Of course, we want to stay in contact with you and always present you with the most important news about our company. To do this, we use e-mail marketing - often just referred to as “newsletters” - as an essential part of our online marketing. If you agree to this or if it is legally permitted, we will send you newsletters, system e-mails or other notifications by e-mail. When we use the term “newsletter” in the following text, we mainly mean e-mails that are sent regularly. Of course, we don't want to bother you in any way with our newsletter. That is why we really strive to offer only relevant and interesting content. You can find out more about our company, our services or products. Since we are always improving our offers, you will always find out via our newsletter when there is news or we are currently offering special, lucrative promotions.

Which data are processed?

If you become a subscriber to our newsletter through our website, you confirm your membership in an e-mail list by e-mail.

We record your declaration of consent so that we can always prove that it complies with our laws.

Duration of the data processing

If you unsubscribe from our e-mail / newsletter distribution list, we may store your address for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests so that we can still prove your consent at the time.

If you really can't find the link in the newsletter, please contact us by email and we will cancel your newsletter subscription immediately.

Legal basis

Our newsletter is sent on the basis of your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). This means that we are only allowed to send you a newsletter if you have actively registered for it beforehand.

What is google analytics

We use the analysis tracking tool Google Analytics (GA) from the American company Google Inc. on our website. For the European area, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. Google Analytics collects data about your actions on our website. For example, if you click on a link, this action is saved in a cookie and sent to Google Analytics. With the help of the reports we receive from Google Analytics, we can better adapt our website and our service to your needs. In the following, we will go into more detail about the tracking tool and, above all, inform you about which data is stored and how you can prevent this.

Google Analytics is a tracking tool that is used to analyze the traffic on our website. In order for Google Analytics to work, a tracking code is built into the code of our website. When you visit our website, this code records various actions that you carry out on our website. As soon as you leave our website, this data is sent to the Google Analytics server and stored there.

Google processes the data and we receive reports on your user behavior. These can include the following reports:

Target group reports: With target group reports, we get to know our users better and know more precisely who is interested in our service.

Advertisement reports: Advertisement reports make it easier for us to analyze and improve our online advertising.

Acquisition reports: Acquisition reports give us helpful information on how we can get more people excited about our service.

Behavioral Reports: This is where we learn how you interact with our website. We can understand which route you take on our site and which links you click.

Conversion reports: Conversion is a process in which you carry out a desired action based on a marketing message. For example, when you go from being a pure website visitor to being a buyer or newsletter subscriber. With the help of these reports, we can find out more about how our marketing measures are received by you. This is how we want to increase our conversion rate.

Real-time reports: Here we always find out immediately what is happening on our website. For example, we can see how many users are reading this text.

Why do we use Google Analytics on our website?

Our goal with this website is clear: We want to offer you the best possible service. The statistics and data from Google Analytics help us to achieve this goal.

The statistically evaluated data show us a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of our website. On the one hand, we can optimize our site so that interested people can find it more easily on Google. On the other hand, the data helps us to better understand you as a visitor. We therefore know very well what we need to improve on our website in order to offer you the best possible service. The data also help us to carry out our advertising and marketing measures more individually and cost-effectively. After all, it only makes sense to show our products and services to people who are interested in them.

Which data is saved by Google Analytics?

Google Analytics uses a tracking code to create a random, unique ID that is linked to your browser cookie. This is how Google Analytics recognizes you as a new user. The next time you visit our site, you will be recognized as a "returning" user. All collected data is saved together with this user ID. This is how it is possible to evaluate pseudonymous user profiles in the first place.

In order to be able to analyze our website with Google Analytics, a property ID must be inserted into the tracking code. The data is then saved in the corresponding property. The Google Analytics 4 property is standard for every newly created property. Alternatively, you can also create the Universal Analytics Property. Depending on the property used, data are stored for different lengths of time.

Identifications such as cookies and app instance IDs measure your interactions on our website. Interactions are all types of actions that you carry out on our website. If you also use other Google systems (such as a Google account), data generated by Google Analytics can be linked to third-party cookies. Google does not pass on any Google Analytics data unless we, as the website operator, approve it. Exceptions may be made if required by law.

The following cookies are used by Google Analytics:

Value: 2.1326744211.152321290245-5
