Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we have tried to make the most important things as simple and clear as possible.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.
If you visit our website as it is now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically saves data such as
• the address (URL) of the website you are visiting
• Browser and browser version
• the operating system used
• the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
• the host name and IP address of the device from which it is accessed
• Date and Time
in files (web server log files).
As a rule, web server log files are stored for two weeks and then deleted automatically. We do not disclose this information, but we can not rule out that it will be seen in the event of unlawful behavior. The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 f DSGVO (lawfulness of processing) in that there is a legitimate interest in enabling the error-free operation of this website by capturing web server log files.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data. Below, we explain what cookies are and why they are used to help you better understand the following privacy statement.
What exactly are cookies?
Whenever you surf the Internet, use a browser. Well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most web pages store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.
cookies store certain user information about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you return to our site, your browser will return the “user-related” information to our site. Thanks to the cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your usual standard setting. Every browser has some cookie a separate file, in others such as Firefox are all cookies stored in a single file.
There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly from our site, and third-party cookies are created by partner websites (eg Google Analytics). Each cookie is to be evaluated individually, since each cookie stores different data. The expiry time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other “pests”. Cookies also can not access information from your PC.
For example, cookie data may look like this:
• Name: _ga
• Expiration time: 2 years
• Use: Differentiation of website visitors
• Example value: GA1.2.1326744211.152211096221
A browser should support the following minimum sizes:
• A cookie should be able to contain at least 4096 bytes
• Per domain at least 50 cookies should be stored
• In total, at least 3000 cookies should be stored
What types of cookies are there?
There are 4 types of cookies:
Absolutely necessary cookies These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functionality of the website. For example, these cookies are needed if a user puts a product in the shopping cart, then continues surfing on other sites and later goes to the checkout. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.
Functional cookies These cookies collect information about the user behavior and whether the user gets any error messages. In addition, these cookies also measure the load time and behavior of the website on different browsers.
Targeted cookies These cookies make for better usability. For example, stored locations, font sizes or form data are stored.
Advertising cookies These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to provide the user with customized advertising. This can be very convenient, but also very annoying.
Usually, the first time you visit a webpage, you are asked which of these cookie types you want to allow. And of course, this decision is also stored in a cookie.
How can I delete cookies?
If you want to know which cookies have been saved in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:
Chrome: Delete, activate, and manage cookies in Chrome
Safari: Manage cookies and site data with Safari
Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer
Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies
Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies
If you basically do not want to have cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. So you can decide with each single cookie whether you allow the cookie or not. The procedure varies depending on the browser. It is best if you search the instructions in Google with the terms “delete cookies Chrome” or “disable cookies Chrome” in the case of a Chrome browser or exchange the word “Chrome” against the name of your browser, eg Edge, Firefox, Safari.
What about my privacy?
Since 2009 there are the so-called “cookie guidelines”. It states that the storage of cookies requires the consent of the website visitor (ie you). Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these guidelines. In Austria, however, the implementation of this directive was carried out in Section 96 (3) of the Telecommunications Act (TKG).
If you want to know more about cookies and do not shy away from technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265 , the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called “HTTP State Management Mechanism”.
