For the purposes of monitoring technical functions and of enhancing the operational security of the web server on the basis of the overriding legitimate interest of the person responsible (technical security measures), this website processes the following personal data in a logfile on the server (see Combined Log format):
- IP address
- Time stamp
- Content accessed
- Referring page
- Browser identification
This data is only stored temporarily for a duration of 10 days. After this period, the data is deleted automatically.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”) on the legal basis of the overriding legitimate interest (analysis of website usage). For this purpose, we have entered into a contract with Google for contract data processing.
When our website is accessed, a software connection is established with the servers of Google and data is transmitted to Google servers, some of which are located in the USA. In addition, Google Analytics utilises cookies to store information about the website user and to analyse the use of the website by website users.
This website uses the “IP anonymisation” function. With it, your IP address is truncated and thus anonymised beforehand by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting parties to the Agreement of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to and truncated by a Google server in the USA.
According to Google, Google will use the data collected in order to evaluate the use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities and to perform further services associated with website use and Internet use.
Also, Google may transmit this information to third parties if it is legally required or insofar as third parties have been commissioned by Google to process this data.

You can generally prevent the collection of your user data by Google Analytics on all websites by downloading and installing the browser plugin.
On several pages, our website features buttons for sharing page contents on the social media platforms Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter.
The buttons are ideally designed for the purposes of protecting the personal data of our website visitors, as the script behind the buttons (computer programme) does not collect or process any personal data. By clicking on the buttons, website visitors who want to share our page are directed directly to the “Share” pages of the respective social media platforms. Only then are the scripts necessary to share the page contents loaded. The general terms and data protection conditions agreed upon by the website visitor and the respective social media platforms then apply.
You can find exact information about this directly from the respective providers:
You have the right to information and to correct, delete and limit the processing of personal data.
Insofar as the legal basis exists for processing your personal data in your consent or in a contract concluded with you, you also have the right to data portability.
You have the right to withdraw consent you have already given to process your personal data. The legality of processing personal data until the withdrawal is not affected by the withdrawal.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of direct advertising. In the event of an objection, your personal data will no longer be processed for the purpose of direct advertising.
Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a claim with the supervisory body (the Austrian Data Protection Authority, Wickenburggasse 8, 1080 Vienna, firstname.lastname@example.org).
