Server log files
Our hosting provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These data include, among other things:
- Browser type / browser version
- operating system
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http” to “https” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
According to the EU General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability and objection. Please contact us for this. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, the data protection authority is responsible.
