2 Categories of personal data, their collection, storage as well as the type and purpose of processing thereof

2.1 Processing of personal data when visiting our website

When using the website for information purposes, i.e. simply viewing it without registering and without providing us with any other information, we process the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. The data described below is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security and must therefore be processed by us. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the enquiry
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (page visited)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Previously visited page
  • Browser
  • Operating system
  • Language and version of the browser software.

In addition to the above-mentioned data, we use technical aids for various functions when you use our website, in particular cookies, which can be stored on your end device. When you access our website and at any time thereafter, you have the choice of whether you generally allow cookies to be set or which individual additional functions you would like to select. You can make changes in your browser settings or via our Consent Manager. In the following, we first describe cookies from a technical point of view before going into more detail about your individual choices by describing technically necessary cookies and cookies that you can voluntarily select or deselect.

Cookies are text files or information in a database that are stored on your hard drive and assigned to the browser you are using so that certain information can flow to the location that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot execute programmes or transmit viruses to your computer but are primarily used to make the website faster and more user-friendly. This website uses the following types of cookies, whose function and legal basis are explained below:

Mandatory functions that are technically necessary to display the website: The technical structure of the website requires us to use technologies, in particular cookies. Without these technologies, our website cannot be displayed (completely correctly) or the support functions could not be enabled. These are basically transient cookies that are deleted at the end of your visit to the website, at the latest when you close your browser. You cannot deselect these cookies if you wish to use our website. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Optional cookies if you give your consent: We only set these cookies with your consent, which you can select on your first visit to our website via the so-called cookie consent tool. The functions are only activated if you give your consent and can be used in particular to enable us to analyse and improve visits to our website, to make it easier for you to use different browsers or end devices, to recognise you during a visit or to place advertising (possibly also to tailor advertising to your interests, measure the effectiveness of advertisements or show interest-based advertising). The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

2.3 When you enter into business contact with us, we collect the following information from you:

  • Salutation, title if applicable, first name, surname
  • E-mail address
  • Telephone number
  • Contact details (including postal address)
  • Contract data for processing
  • Invoice data and data on past payment behaviour
  • Bank details (credit institution, bank details, credit information, etc.)

The processing is carried out at your request and is required in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR to fulfil the purpose of the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures. Without the provision of this data, fulfilment would not be possible. The data collected by us will be stored until the expiry of the statutory retention periods and then deleted, unless longer storage obligations apply in accordance with Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR due to tax and company law retention and documentation obligations (from BAO or StGB) or you have consented to further storage in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
