Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. d DSGVO provides the legal basis for any pertinent proceedings in cases where vital interests of the data subject or any other natural person’s vital interests should necessitate the processing of personal data.
In accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO we take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a degree of protection commensurate with the respective risk, always considering state of the art and implementation cost, the kind, scope, circumstances and purposes of the respective data processing activities as well as the probability of occurrence and the degree of the respective risk to the rights and liberties of natural persons.
These measures include in particular the protection of confidentiality and the integrity and availability of the data through close control of processing procedures including the entry of and physical access to the data, data transfer, the protection of availability of the data and its separation.
In addition, we have introduced a process which guarantees the protection of rights of data subjects, the deletion of data as well immediate responses to any threat two data security. We regard the protection of personal data as an imperative, which guides us in the development and the selection of both hard and software as well as in the development and design of processes and procedures according to the principle of data protection through technological design and privacy-by-default settings as laid out in Art. 25 DSGVO.
Cooperation with Processors and Third Parties
If our data processing necessitates the disclosure of data, its transfer or any other form of access to other persons or organisations (processors or third parties), such actions are undertaken solely on the basis of legal permission (e.g. if a data transfer to a third party such as a payment service provider becomes necessary as part of the fulfilment of our contractual obligations according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b DSGVO), your previous consent, any legal requirements, or on the basis of our legitimate interests (such as in our cooperation with agents, web hosts etc.) If we commission a third party to process data, this happens on the basis of Art. 28 DSGVO.
Transfers to Third Countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area EEA)), or if this happens while using services provided by third parties, or in the process of disclosing or transferring data to third parties, this is only to discharge our contractual or pre-contractual obligations, subject to your previous consent, due to a legal obligation, or on the basis of our legitimate interests.
Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or have the data processed in a third country only in the presence of the special conditions of Art. 44 et seq. DSGVO. This means that the processing happens only on the basis of specific guarantees, such as the official recognition of a data protection level commensurate with EU regulations (e.g. for the US through its ”Privacy Shield”), or in compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called ”standard contractual clauses”)

Cookies and the Right of Objection in the Event of Direct Advertising
Cookies are small data files which are stored on the users’ computers. They can save diverse information and primarily serve the purpose of storing user information (or rather information about the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after the visit to a website. Temporary, ”session” or ”transient cookies” are such cookies which are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes the browser. Such cookies can e.g. store information about the contents of shopping basket or the user’s log-in status.
By contrast, ”permanent” or ”persistent” cookies are cookies which are retained even after the respective browser has been closed. This way it is possible, for example, to store the log-in status if users access it after a couple of days. In the same way it is possible to store in such a permanent cookie information about the users’ interests, which are employed for the purpose of reach measurement or marketing initiatives.
Deletion of Data
Any data we process will be deleted in accordance with Art. 17 und 18 DSGVO or restricted in use, respectively. Unless expressly stated otherwise in this privacy statement, any data previously stored will be deleted immediately after they have been rendered unnecessary for their intended purpose and if the deletion of those data is not legally barred by obligations to retain them. Any data which is not deleted because it is necessary to retain it for other and legally permissible purposes, is restricted in its use, which means that this data is blocked and isn’t processed for any other purpose. This applies, e.g., to data which needs to be retained due to regulations laid out in the German commercial law or for tax reasons. In accordance with German legislation, data pertinent to ledgers, business records, status reports, trading books, posting vouchers, and tax documents etc. must be retained for 10 years (§§ 147 Abs. 1 AO, 257 Abs. 1 Nr. 1 und 4, Abs. 4 HGB), other commercial papers for only 6 years (§ 257 Abs. 1 Nr. 2 und 3, Abs. 4 HGB. In accordance with Austrian legislation and the provisions of § 132 Abs. 1 BAO we are obliged to retain for seven years any data pertinent to accounting documents, receipts/invoices, accounts, commercial papers, income and revenue statements etc., for 22 years any data related to immovable property, and for 10 years any documentation in connection with electronically provided services, telecommunication, radio and television services which are rendered to non-entrepreneurs in EU member states and for which the Mini-One-Stop-Shop facility is used.
In addition to we process
– contract data (e.g. contractual object, duration, customer category) and
– payment-related data (e.g. bank details, payment history)
of our customers, prospects and business partners as part of the fulfilment of our contractual obligations, for the provision of customer service and care as well as for marketing, advertising and market research purposes.
Order Processing in Our Online Shop and through Customer Accounts
As part of the fulfilment of orders we process data obtained from our customers to afford the opportunity to select and order products and services as well as to enable payment and delivery, or the fulfilment of the order, respectively. The data used in this connection includes inventory data, communication data and contractual data. The category of data subjects affected by such data processing includes our existing and prospective customers and any other business partners. The processing of the data happens in connection with the provision of our contractual services as part of the operation of our online shop, for invoicing, delivery and the provision of customer service. As part of these proceedings we use session cookies to store information on the contents of the shopping basket and permanent cookies to store information on the log-in status.The processing of the data happens in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b (fulfilment of orders) and c (legally prescribed archiving) DSGVO. To conclude and execute the contract all information marked as mandatory must be provided. Pertinent data is disclosed to third parties only insofar as it concerns delivery or payment purposes, or within the legal permissions and duties toward legal advisers and the authorities. Third countries are involved in the data processing only if the execution of the contract so requires (e.g. at the customer’s request upon delivery or payment). Alternatively, users of our online services can create a personal user account which enables them in particular to track their orders. Upon registration, users will be advised as to which information is mandatory. Our user accounts are not public and cannot therefore be indicated by search engines. Unless their storage is required by legal or tax-related regulations in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. c DSGVO, all user accounts will be deleted upon cancellation by the customer. In the case of legal obligations all in formation is retained in the user account until its deletion.
It is the customer’s obligation to secure their data after their cancellation and prior to the end of the contract. As part of the registration procedure, with renewed registrations and in connection with the use of our online services, we store the IP address as well as the time of the corresponding user action. The storage of data pertinent to such actions happens on the basis of our legitimate interests as well as the users’ interest in protection from data misuse and other unauthorised use. The data is not transferred to any third party unless required in the pursuit of our claims or by legal regulation according to the provisions of Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. c DSGVO. The deletion of the data is effected upon expiry of the legal warranty obligation or any other similar obligations, the legal necessity of documentation is reviewed every three years; in the case of legal archiving obligations the deletion of the data is effected upon expiry of the respective terms (6 years as required by German commercial law and 10 years in the case of tax-related retention obligations).
Our users can create their own personal user accounts. As part of the registration procedure users will be informed of which information is mandatory, and related data is processed for the provision of the user account in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b DSGVO. The data processed in this connection includes in particular log-in information (name, password and email address). The data entered upon registration is used for the intended purposes of the user account. Users can be informed by email of anything in connection with their user accounts such as technical changes. In the event of cancellation, any data in connection with the user account we be deleted, subject to legally binding retention obligations. It is the users’ responsibility to secure their data after cancellation and prior to the end of the contract. We are entitled to delete irretrievably any user data stored during the term of the contract.
As part of the use of the registration and log-in procedures and, generally, the use of the user account, we store the IP address as well as the time of the corresponding user action. The storage of data pertinent to such actions happens on the basis of our legitimate interests as well as the users’ interest in protection from data misuse and other unauthorised use. The data is not transferred to any third party unless required in the pursuit of our claims or by legal regulation according to the provisions of Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. c DSGVO. IP addresses will be anonymised or deleted within 7 days of registration.
When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, email, telephone or social media) relevant user information will be processed for the purpose of processing the respective enquiry in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. The information provided by the users can be stored in a Customer-Relationship-Management System („CRM System“) or any similar system used for the processing of customer enquiries. Enquiries from customers will be deleted once they have been rendered unnecessary. The need to store enquiries will be reviewed every two years. Otherwise, legal archiving obligations are applied accordingly.
In this section we will inform you of the contents of our newsletter, pertinent registration and distribution procedures, the scope of its statistical evaluation as well as your rights of objection. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you declare your consent to its delivery and the processes described hereinafter.
Contents of the newsletter: We send out newsletters, emails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter referred to as ”newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipients or subject to a legal permission. If the contents of the newsletter are described in detail as part of the registration process, these contents are relevant to the users’ consent. Other than this, our newsletters contain information about our services and our organisation.
Double-Opt-In and recording: The registration for the receipt of our newsletter is effected by a so-called double-opt-in procedure, which means that upon registration you will be sent an email requiring you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary to prevent any registrations using third-party email addresses. Registrations for our newsletter are recorded to prove that the registration process complies with pertinent legal requirements. This implies the storage of registration and confirmation times as well as the corresponding IP address. Likewise, any changes of data stored with the mail service provider will be recorded.
Registration information: To register for our newsletter it suffices if you provide your email address. Optionally, we kindly ask you to furnish us with a name to allow for personal address in the newsletter. The delivery of the newsletter and pertinent performance measurement happen on the basis of the recipients’ consent in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO in conjunction with § 7 Abs. 2 Nr. 3 UWG, or if previous consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing initiatives in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lt. f. DSGVO in conjunction with § 7 Abs. 3 UWG. The recording of the registration procedures happens on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. It is our particular interest to provide a user-friendly and secure newsletter system which serves our business interests whilst at the same time satisfying our customers’ expectations and which furthermore allows for the proof of previously declared consent.
Cancellation/revocation: You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter anytime, i.e. you can revoke your consent to receiving our newsletters at any time. At the bottom of any newsletter you will find a corresponding hyperlink for the cancellation of your subscription. Prior to their eventual deletion after three years, we are allowed to store unsubscribed email addresses to evidence previous consent granted. The processing of such data remains restricted to the sole purpose of defence against potential claims. Individual requests for deletion can be made at any time subject to the acknowledgment of the existence of previous consent.
Newsletter – Mail Service Provider
For the distribution of our newsletter we use an external mail service provider (NAME, ADDRESS, COUNTRY). For information on NAME’S data protection regulations, please see the information on the following webpage [LINK]. Our cooperation with the mail service provider is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO and on the terms of a job processing contract in accordance with Art. 28 Abs. 3 S. 1 DSGVO. [PROVIDER’S NAME] are entitled to use recipients’ data in pseudonomised form, i.e. without its allocation to its users, for the purposes of optimising their own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of the delivery and the presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, [NAME OF PROVIDER] will not use any data of the recipients of our newsletter to contact them directly or to transfer their data to any other third party.
Newsletter – Performance Measuring
Our newsletters contain a so-called ”web beacon”, i.e. a pixel-size file which is accessed upon opening the newsletter either by our own server, or, in the event of an external mail service provider, by that company’s server. During this access procedure some technical information, in particular such related to your browser and system as well as your IP address and the time of access is raised. This information is used to improve the technical performance of the service by employing the technical data or the respective target groups and their reading behaviour along with the place of access (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the time of access. Information on whether the newsletter has been opened and when, and which links in it have been accessed also classes among the statistical information that we raise. For technical reasons any of this information can be traced back to the individual recipient of our newsletter. However, it is neither our endeavour nor that of the mail service provider we use to observe the behaviour of any one individual user. Quite on the contrary, the statistical evaluation of our newsletter’s performance serves us only to learn about our users’ collective reading behaviours so as to be better able to match contents with user expectation, or to match and send different contents accounting for differing interests among our users, respectively. Unfortunately, a separate right of revocation just for the performance measuring procedures is not possible. So, if you should not wish to participate in the evaluation of our newsletter’s performance, you will have to cancel your subscription altogether.
Hosting and Email Distribution
The hosting services that we use serve the smooth accessibility of our newsletter and include the following: infrastructure and platform services, computing and storage capacity, database services and email distribution as well as security and maintenance services, which are all employed to provide this specific online offer. As part of our service provision we –or our hosting partner, respectively- process inventory data, contact and content data, contract information and usage data, customers’, prospects’ and visitors’ meta and communication data, all of you which are used on the basis of our legitimate interest in an efficient and secure provision of this online service. Our employment of this data is in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO in conjunction with Art. 28 DSGVO (conclusion of a job processing contract).
Google uses the information on our behalf to evaluate the acceptance of this specific online offer, to produce reports about any activity in connection with the offer and to provide us with additional services related to the use of our online offer. This may lead to the creation of pseudonymous profiles of the users. We only use Google analytics with its IP anonymisation activated, which means that Google shortens and effectively renders unrecognisable the users’ IP addresses within the EU member states as well as within the member states of the European Economic Area (EEA). It is only in rare and exceptional cases that a full IP address is transferred to and shortened on a Google server in the USA. The data transferred by the IP address of the user’s browser is not merged with any other data raised by Google itself. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the corresponding setting in their browser software; in addition, users can prevent the collection of information, which is related to this online offer and stored by the cookies, as well as its transfer to and processing by Google if they download and install the browser plugin provided via the following hyperlink: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. For further information on Google’s use of data, rights of cancellation and objection please see Google’s privacy statement at policies.google.com/privacy. and https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads and for information on the settings for the insertion of advertisements by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated). All personal data of the users will be deleted or anonymised after 14 months.
Google AdWords and Conversion Measuring
On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. the interest in the analysis, optimisation and profitability of our online offering according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) we use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, („Google“). Google is certified under the terms of the Privacy Shield agreement and hence guarantees its compliance with European data protection legislation.
We use Google’s online marketing instrument Google ”AdWords“ to place advertisements in the company’s advertising network (e.g. in search results, videos, on websites etc) so as to ensure that they can be seen by any Internet user who might potentially be interested in seeing our advertisements. This makes it possible for us to place advertisements within our online offering more specifically and hence to present only such advertisements to individual users which potentially appeal to them. For example, if a user is presented with an advertisement for products for which he or she has previously evinced interest, the act of showing this particular advertisement to the user is called re-marketing. To enable such re-marketing on our website and any other websites which actively participate in Google’s advertising network, Google activates a specific code on those websites and introduces on them so-called re-marketing tags (indivisible graphics or code, also referred to as web beacons). With the help of the latter a cookie, i.e. a small data file) gets stored on the user’s device (instead of cookies alternative technologies can be used). The cookie file then records information on websites visited by the user, which contents he or she is interested in and which offers he or she has shown an interest in by clicking. Also, technical information on the browser and the operating system, links to other websites, access time and additional information on the use of the respective online offering is stored in the cookie file. Additionally, we are provided with an individual conversion cookie. The information gathered in this way enables Google to draft conversion statistics on our behalf. However, we are only provided with the anonymous overall number of users who have clicked our advertisements and who have thus been allocated a conversion tracking tag and hence been recorded in the statistics. This means we do not receive any information which could make our individual users identifiable. The user data gathered this way will be processed pseudonymously within Google’s advertising network, which means Google does not process and store e.g. the user’s name or email address, but processes relevant data only as cookie-related and within pseudonymous user profiles. This further implies that from Google’s perspective our advertisements are not administered for and shown to a specifically identifiable person, but only to the cookie holder, irrespective of who that cookie holder is. Please note that this doesn’t apply two users who have expressly entitled Google to use their data without a previous pseudonymisation. The data will be transferred to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the USA.
For further information on Google’s use of data, rights of cancellation and objection please see Google’s privacy statement at (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.) and for information on the settings for the insertion of advertisements by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).
Online Presencein Social Media Networks
We operate online presences within social networks and platforms to communicate with our active and prospective customers and users to inform them of our services. On accessing these networks and platforms, the terms and data protection regulations of the respective providers apply. Unless stated otherwise in this privacy statement, we process the data of users if they communicate with us through social media e.g. by posting contributions at our online presences or by engaging in email exchanges.
Integration Third-Party Services and Contents
For the provision of our online offer and on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. the interest in the analysis, optimisation and profitability of our online offering according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) we utilise content or service offers, e.g. videos or font types (hereinafter referred to as contents), provided by third parties to integrate them into our own online service offer.
This necessarily presupposes that such third-party providers register the IP address of the respective users, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the contents to the users’ browser. In fact, the IP address is necessary for the provision and display of those contents. We seek to use only such contents whose providers use the IP address solely for the distribution of their contents. Third-party providers might also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as a web beacons) for statistical are marketing purposes. Such pixel tags facilitate the evaluation of information such as the visitor traffic and this website. This pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the users device and may contain and be combined with, amongst others, technical information on the browser and operating system, accessed links to other websites, access time as well as further information related to the use of our online offer.
Our online offer may integrate functions and contents of the online service provider Twitter, Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
