Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). We have concluded a corresponding data processing contract with the provider.

The relationship with the web analytics provider is based on the European Union’s Privacy Shield Agreement with the United States. Google is licensed under the Privacy Shield Framework since September 2017.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, small text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. You can prevent this by setting up your browser in a way that no cookies are stored.

The data processing takes place on the basis of the legal regulations of the Austrian § 96 paragraph 3 TKG as well as the Art 6 paragraph 1 a) (consent) and / or f (legitimate interest) of the GDPR.

Our concern in the sense of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymized. That means, by activating the IP anonymization function of Google Analytics on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use the information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The pseudonymized IP address provided by Google Analytics within the scope of the web analytics will not be merged with other data provided by Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install it in your browser: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

An alternate way to opt-out, especially on mobile devices, is to uncheck to following box:

By unchecking the box above we give your browser a opt-out-cookie that prevents Google Analytics from tracking you on this website. The opt-out-cookie only prevents you from being tracked only for this website and only within the browser you use. If you browse our website with other devices or browsers you need to set the cookie again. The cookie will also be deleted, if you clear all your cookies in your brower.

Google Web Fonts

This website uses external fonts from Google Fonts. Google Fonts is a service from Google Inc. (“Google”). The web fonts are embedded through a server request, which may be fulfilled by a Google server located in the USA. In making this request, data about your browser and IP address as well as the URL of the site(s) that you visited will be sent to Google.
