DECLARATION ON INFORMATION OBLIGATION
Upon visiting our web pages, we store your personal data depending on the use of our services. On the one hand you automatically transmit to us certain data so that we, for example, are informed on the number of visitors, on the other hand you may intentionally provide us with data in order to initiate contact with us.
We use your personal data only in compliance with national and European data protection regulations and only within the scope and for the purpose for which you have provided us the data, and for no other purpose.
Erasure of stored personal data occurs when the user of the website revokes his or her consent to storage, when its knowledge is no longer necessary for performance of the purpose pursued by storage or when storage is not permitted on other statutory grounds. Data for purposes of settling accounts and bookkeeping purposes are not affected by a request for erasure.
IP ADDRESSES AND SERVER LOGS
Your IP address together with other data is transmitted to the web server upon every visit to our website. That is necessary for technical reasons in order to transmit the answer of the server to you. You receive this IP address from your internet service provider as soon as you connect with the internet. Thereafter, for a certain period of time, your provider can trace which IP address you used at a specific date. At least theoretically your identity can be determined via an enquiry of the provider.
A record is made of the server logs (IP address and additional data such as date, time of the request, name and URL of the requested file, volume of transferred data, notification of whether the request was successful, identification data of the browser used and of the operating system, as well as in the event of access via a link, the website from which access occurred) in order to test the system security, for defense against and traceability of hacking attacks, for technical system administration as well as for optimization of the website. An inspection of the server logs occurs only if required or in suspicious cases. A disclosure of data to law enforcement authorities occurs only in the event of a hacker attack. No further disclosure to third parties occurs. Data are not permanently stored and are erased after a period of 6 months.
SHARING OF CONTENTS ON SOCIAL NETWORKS
From our website, you can share contents on social networks. When sharing contents by clicking the button, no codes are downloaded from the social networks.
We take the current discussion about data protection in social networks very seriously, as we ourselves operate appearances in social networks in order to inform the active users there about our range of services. The specific social media we use for this purpose are represented on our website by logos. In this regard, we would like to point out that, on the basis of current case law, we have a joint controllership within the meaning of Art 26 GDPR with the respective operator of the social network. We have taken the necessary precautions for this as far as the provider has made this possible for us. The primary responsibility according to GDPR for the processing of personal data in the respective social network lies with the respective provider of the social network. In the case of the assertion of rights of persons affected, we state that these are best asserted with the social networks themselves. We as operators do not make any decisions regarding the processing of data in the social network. Only the respective provider has access to the data of the users and can therefore only take direct measures.
User data can be processed in social networks for advertising and market research purposes. Among other things, users can create their own user profiles based on their various interests. The user profiles can then be used, for example, to place targeted advertisements within and outside the social media. For these purposes, cookies are also used by the social medium in which the user behaviour and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, these user profiles may also contain data on the users as members of the respective social media, provided that they are logged in to these.
For a detailed description of the respective processing operations and the possibilities for objection or revocation, please refer to the data protection declaration of the respective social network.
