Web analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed. 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. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this 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 IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading the browser plugin available under the following link Install: .

Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics and your options in this regard can be found at .

Your IP address is recorded but immediately anonymized by shortening the last digits of the IP address. This means that only a rough localization is possible.

The relationship with the web analytics provider is based on the “USA Privacy Shield.”

Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of Section 96 Paragraph 3 TKG and Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) of the GDPR.

Our concern within the meaning of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is to improve our offering and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymized.

Use of Facebook Custom Audience

Remarketing tags from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are integrated into our pages. When you visit our pages, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server via the remarketing tags. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. This allows Facebook to assign your visit to our pages to your user account. We can use the information obtained in this way to display Facebook Ads.

We would like to point out that as the provider of the pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook. Further information can be found in Facebook's privacy policy ( ). If you do not want data to be collected via Custom Audience, you can deactivate Custom Audiences here ( ).

Use of Facebook social plugins

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here:

If you access a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted from Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge:

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or leaving a comment, the relevant information will be transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and store your IP address.

The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook's data protection information: .

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and link it to your member data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker”.

Use of Google Ads

We use Google Ads, an online advertising program from Google Inc., on our website. Conversion tracking is also used.

If you as a user visit our website and the cookie is still working, we will be able to see, together with Google, that you have clicked on the relevant ad and have been redirected to our site. Each Google Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The data collected through conversion cookies is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers. As customers, we find out the total number of users who responded to our ad and were then directed to a website that was provided with a conversion tracking tag. During this process, we do not receive any information with which we could personally identify you as a user. If you reject the tracking process, the Google conversion tracking cookie can be deactivated via your Internet browser. If necessary, use the browser's help function for further information.

Email newsletter
Information about the newsletter and consent

With the following information we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your rights to object. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to its receipt and the procedures described.

Use of the shipping service provider “Campaign Monitor”

The newsletter is sent using “Campaign Monitor”, a newsletter distribution platform of the company: Campaign Monitor Pty Ltd, 404/3-5 Stapleton Avenue, Sutherland, NSW, Australia, 2232.

The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this information, are stored on Campaign Monitor's servers in the USA and, if applicable, Germany and Australia. Campaign Monitor uses this information to send and evaluate newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, Campaign Monitor can, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of newsletters or for economic purposes, to determine which countries the recipients come from. However, Campaign Monitor does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them ourselves or to pass them on to third parties.

We trust in the reliability and IT and data security of Campaing Monitor. Campaign Monitor is committed to complying with the GDPR and has implemented extensive internal measures to ensure this. You can read details about this in this public statement: . The measures taken to ensure the security of the data can be viewed here: . We have also concluded a “data processing agreement” with Campaign Monitor. This is a contract in which Campaign Monitor undertakes to protect our users' data, to process it on our behalf in accordance with its data protection regulations and, in particular, not to pass it on to third parties. You can view Campaign Monitor's privacy policy here.

Content of the newsletter

We only send newsletters, emails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter “newsletter”) with the consent of the recipient or legal permission. If the contents are specifically described when registering for the newsletter, they are decisive for the user's consent. Our newsletters also contain information about the digital economy and all its branches (this may in particular include references to articles, advertisements, white papers or online presence).

Double opt-in and logging

Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that after you register you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can log in with someone else's email address.

Registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to provide evidence of the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes storing the registration and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored in Campaign Monitor are also logged.

Login details

To register for the newsletter, all you need to do is enter your email address.

Statistical survey and analysis

The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, ie a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the Campaign Monitor server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval, technical information is initially collected, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their access locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.

The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor Campaign Monitor's intention to monitor individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

Online access and data management

There are cases in which we direct newsletter recipients to Campaign Monitor websites. For example, our newsletters contain a link with which newsletter recipients can access the newsletter online (e.g. in the event of display problems in the email program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can subsequently correct their data, such as their email address. Likewise, Campaign Monitor's privacy policy is only available on their website.

In this context, we would like to point out that cookies are used on Campaign Monitor's websites and that personal data is processed by Campaign Monitor, its partners and the service providers used (e.g. Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection. For more information, please see Campaign Monitor's privacy policy. We would also like to point out the possibility of objecting to data collection for advertising purposes on the websites and (for the European area).


You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. This means that your consent to sending it via Campaign Monitor and the statistical analyzes will expire at the same time. Unfortunately, a separate revocation of sending via Campaign Monitor or the statistical evaluation is not possible.

You will find a link to unsubscribe from the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.

Legal basis General Data Protection Regulation

In accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which applies from May 25, 2018, we inform you that consent to the sending of email addresses is based on Articles 6 (1) (a), 7 (7) GDPR and § 7 (2). No. 3 or paragraph 3 UWG takes place. The use of the shipping service provider Campaign Monitor, the implementation of statistical surveys and analyzes as well as the logging of the registration process are based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the GDPR. Our interest is in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests as well as meets the expectations of users.

Your rights

In principle, you have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have been violated in any other way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria this is the data protection authority.
