Privacy Policy

Protecting your personal data is important to us. That is why we exclusively process your data within the framework of the legal provisions (GDPR, TKG (Austrian Telecommunications Act) 2003). In this privacy policy, we inform you on the major aspects of our data processing associated with the use of our website.


Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device through your browser. They are not harmful. We use cookies to make our offering more user-friendly. Some cookies remain on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our site. If you do not want these cookies to be stored, you can configure your browser to inform you about cookies and only allow them on a case-by-case basis. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of our website. 

Web analysis

Our website uses some functions of the Web analysis service Google Analytics, Google LLC / Mountain View, CA 94043 (USA). This uses cookies that enable an analysis of how users use our website. The information generated by these cookies is transmitted to the provider’s server and is stored there. You can prevent this by configuring your browser to prevent the setting of cookies. We have concluded an agreement with the provider regarding the processing of data. Your IP address is collected but is immediately pseudonymized. Through this procedure, only a very rough location is possible. The data processing takes place on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 para. 3 TKG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit a (Consent) and/or f (Legitimate Interest) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest according to the GDPR lies in the improvement of our offering and our online presence. As the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised.

Google Maps 

Our website uses Google Maps (API) by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Maps is a Web service for the representation of interactive maps in order to visually present geographical information. The service shows you our location and helps you get to us. When you call up the sub-pages integrated in the Google Maps map, information about your use of our website (e.g. your IP address) is sent to Google servers in the USA and is stored there. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or there is no user account. If you are logged into Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the information to be assigned to your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (including for unlogged users) as user profiles and evaluates it. This evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art 6 para. 1 lit f GDPR on grounds of the legitimate interest of Google to integrate personalized advertising, market research and/or effective design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles; you must address Google to exercise this right. If you do not consent to the future transmission of your data to Google when using Google Maps, you also have the option of completely disabling the Web service Google Maps by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps can then not be used, and consequently the map cannot be displayed on the website.
