Privacy Statement

Protecting your personal data is important to us. Therefore, we process your data on the exclusive basis of statutory provisions (GDPR and TKG [Telecommunications Act] 2003). In this data privacy information, we wish to inform you about the most important aspects of data processing connected with our website.

Contacting us
If you contact us by using the form on the website or by email, your data will NOT be stored in the system, but only sent to us as email. If we receive application documents through email or by post, we will delete or destroy them as soon as the applicant is rejected. If we keep application documents on file, we will delete or destroy them after 6 months.

Cookies
Our website uses cookies. These are small text files which are placed on your end devices with the help of your browser. They cause no damage. We use cookies to make our services more user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser when you make your next visit. If you wish to prevent this, you can change your browser settings to inform you about the placement of cookies so you can permit this on a case-by-case basis. If you deactivate cookies, you might restrict our website’s functionality.

Google Analytics
The provider uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies: text files which are stored on users’ computers and which enable an analysis of how you use the website. The information the cookie generates about how users use this website is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then stored there.

If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, Google will truncate users’ IP addresses beforehand, within Member States of the EU or other States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. IP anonymisation is active on this website. On behalf of this website’s operator, Google will use this information to evaluate users’ use of the website, assemble reports about website activity, and render services for the webmaster regarding website and internet use.

The IP address transmitted as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. Users can prohibit the storing of cookies by adjusting the settings on their browser software accordingly; however, the provider points out to users that if they do, they will not be able to use all functions of this website to their full capacity. Moreover, users can prevent Google from recording or processing the data generated by the cookies regarding their use of the website (including their IP addresses) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in found under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Prevent Google Analytics from tracking me.

Use of Facebook social plugins and Facebook pixels
Data processing is based on the statutory provisions of § 96 (3) TKG and Art. 6 (1) (a) (consent) and/or (f) (legitimate interest) of the GDPR. For the purpose of the GDPR (legitimate interest), our concern is the improvement of our services and web presence. Since we value our users’ privacy, user data are pseudonymised. User data will be kept for 180 days.

Our online services use social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognised by the Facebook logo (white “F” on a blue tile or a “thumbs-up” sign), or are labelled as such by adding “Facebook social plugin”). The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

If a user retrieves a website of this online service which contains such a plugin, his or her browser builds a direct connection with Facebook’s servers. Facebook transmits the plugin’s contents directly to the user’s browser, from which location they are incorporated into the website. This means that the provider has no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects using this plugin, and therefore informs the user according to the provider’s state of knowledge. The integration of the plugin informs Facebook that a user has accessed the corresponding sites of the online services. If a user is logged in with Facebook, Facebook can assign that user’s visit to his or her Facebook account. If a user interacts with the plugins (by activating the “like” button or leaving a comment, for example), the information in question will be transferred directly from that user’s browser to Facebook and stored there. Moreover, Facebook might find out a user’s IP address and store it even if that user is not a member of Facebook. According to Facebook, all IP addresses stored in Austria are anonymised.

Facebook’s “Data Policy” contains information on the scope and purpose of data collection, how Facebook will use and process the data further, users’ rights in this regard, and how users can adjust their settings to protect their privacy. https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member but does not want Facebook to collect data about them through this online service and connect that data with their member data stored on Facebook, that user must log out of Facebook before visiting this internet presence and delete the corresponding Facebook cookies. Facebook social plugins can also be blocked with browser add-ons such as Facebook Blocker.

Your rights
You have fundamental rights to access, rectification, erasure, restriction, data portability, withdrawal and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data breaches data privacy law or your claims under data privacy law have otherwise been breached, you may lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the Data Protection Authority.
