We process your data for the following purposes:

  • in order to provide this website to you and in order to further improve and develop this website;

1.5. Cookies

So-called cookies are used on our website. A cookie is a small file that can be stored on your computer when you visit a website. As a fundamental rule, cookies are used to offer users additional functions on a website. They can, for instance, be used to make the navigation on a website easier for you, to make it possible for you to continue using a website where you left it and/or to save your preferences and settings when you visit the website again. Cookies cannot access any other data on your computer or read or change them.

Most of the cookies on our website are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted when you leave our website again. Permanent cookies, however, remain on your computer until you delete them manually in your browser. We use such permanent cookies in order to recognise you again when you next visit our website.

If you wish to check cookies on your computer, you can select your browser settings so that you receive notification when a website wants to save cookies. You can also block or delete cookies if they have already been saved on your computer. If you would like to find out more about how you can do these steps please use the “Help” function in your browser. To make handling as user-friendly as possible, we also use a so-called “cookie administration tool” in places with which you can manage the setting of cookies even more easily. Please note that the blocking or deletion of cookies can impair your online experience and could prevent you from making full use of this website.

We use social media plugins to make it possible for users to be able to recommend and share the content of social networks, e.g. Facebook, Twitter, widgets of Flickr. For this, we use a two-stage procedure. Data are only transmitted to third parties when users click on one of the icons displayed in the social media bar. We do not have any influence over or access to cookies that are set by Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, etc.

At any rate, our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection is established to the servers of YouTube as soon as you start to play a video. In the process, the YouTube server is notified which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you make it possible for YouTube to assign your surf behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. Further information on the handling of user data can be found in the data privacy statement of YouTube at:

In order to protect input forms on our site, we use, if necessary, the service “reCAPTCHA” of the company Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Through the use of this service, a differentiation can be made as to whether the corresponding input was made by a human, or misused by automated mechanical processing.

According to our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behaviour of the website visitors, information about operating system, browser and time spent on the website, cookies, depiction instructions and scripts, the input behaviour of the user and mouse movements in the area of the “reCAPTCHA” check box are transmitted to Google.

Google uses the information acquired in this way, among others, to digitalise books and other printed products and to optimise services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and street name recognition).

The IP address communicated within the framework of “reCAPTCHA” is not merged with other data of Google unless you are registered in your Google account at the time when you use the “reCAPTCHA” plugin. If you wish to prevent this communication and saving of data about you and your behaviour on our website by Google, you must log out of Google before you visit our page or use the reCAPTCHA plugin.

The usage of the “reCAPTCHA” service is done pursuant to the Google terms and conditions of use:

1.6. Google Analytics

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics which is offered by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help us to analyse how you use this website.

The information generated by such a cookie regarding your usage of this website (including your IP address and the URLs of the websites called up as well as the attributes of the website) are transferred to servers of Google in the US and saved there. We do not save any of your data that are collected in connection with Google Analytics.

Our website uses the option offered by Google Analytics of IP anonymisation. Your IP address is therefore truncated/anonymised by Google as soon as Google receives your address. Google will use this information on our behalf in order to analyse your usage of the website, in order to compile reports about the website activities and to provide other services to us that are associated with the website usage and the Internet usage. The IP address communicated by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged by Google with other data.

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics on this website via our “cookie administration tool” (“revoke cookies” at the end of the page) (an opt-out cookie is set that prevents the future recording of your data when you visit this website).

Further information on the terms and conditions of usages of Google and Google’s data privacy statement can be found at or at

If need be, we use the remarketing or “similar target groups” function of Google. This function makes it possible for us to address you on the websites in a targeted manner with advertising by activating personalised, interest-based advertising for users of the website when you visit other websites in the Google Display network. To carry out the analysis of the usage of the websites which is the basis for the creation of the interest-based advertisements, Google uses cookies. For this purpose, Google saves a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of the website users. Via this number, the visits to the website and anonymised data about the usage of the website are recorded. There is no saving of personal data of the website users. If you subsequently visit another website in the Google Display network, advertisements will be displayed to you that, with a high probability, take into account product and information areas that you have previously called up.

This function is not activated until you have agreed to the use of cookies during a visit to our site. You can manage the setting at any time via our “cookie administration tool” (link “revoke cookies” at the end of the page).

Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies by calling up the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative at and implementing the further information listed there regarding an opt-out. Further information on Google Remarketing and the data privacy statement can be viewed at:

2. International transmission of data

Some of the aforementioned recipients can be located outside of Austria or process your personal data there. The data protection level in other countries may not correspond to the level in Austria. However, we only transmit your personal data to countries for which the EU Commission has decided that they have an appropriate level of data protection, or we take measures in order to ensure that all recipients have an appropriate level of data protection. For this purpose, we conclude, for instance, standard contract clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC). Any agreements concluded are available on request (cf. Point 4 below).

3. Your rights in connection with personal data

According to valid law, you are entitled, among others (under the prerequisites of applicable law), (i) to check whether and what personal data we have saved about you and to receive copies of these data, (ii) to request the correction, supplementing or the deletion of your personal data that are wrong or are not processed in a legally compliant manner, (iii) to request from us the restriction of the processing of your personal data, (iv) under certain circumstances to object to the processing of your personal data or to revoke any consent previously given for the processing, whereby such a revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing until the revocation, (v) to request data portability, (vi) to know the identity of third parties to whom your personal data are transmitted and (vii) to file an appeal to the data protection authority.
