The responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (names, email addresses, etc.).
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke any consent already given at any time. An informal message by email is sufficient to do this. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority
In the event of data protection violations, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority in matters of data protection is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based.

Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
This site uses SSL and TSL encryption for data security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or queries that you send us as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock icon in your browser bar.
If SSL or TSL encryption is activated the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, Blocking, Deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing free of charge and, where applicable, a right to the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. If you have further questions on this or other questions about personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the Legal Notice.
3. Data collection on our website
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies used by us are session cookies. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit us.
You can configure your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (e.g. shopping trolley function) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter f of the GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation]. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. If other cookies are stored (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour), these will be treated separately in this data protection statement.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- The operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data are not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, the information you provide in the inquiry form, including the contact data you enter, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form thus takes place exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 Abs. 1 letter a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by email is sufficient to do this. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you entered in the contact form remains with us until you request its deletion, you revoke your consent or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
