In such cases, we delete or restrict your personal data at the end of the corresponding requirements.

1.10 Your rights
One of the main objectives of the GDPR is to protect and clarify the data protection rights of EU citizens as well as people within the EU. This means that you continue to have various rights in relation to your data, even if you have already transferred it to us. These rights are described in more detail below.

If you want to contact us in relation to these rights, please get in touch. We will endeavour to respond to your query as soon as possible, in any case within one month (extensions could possibly be applied, for which there is legal provision). Please note that we can record our correspondence in order to better be able to solve the problems you address.

Right to objection: you can object to us processing your personal data on the basis of this law if you do this for one of the following reasons:

  • our justified interests,
  • for statistical purposes.

The above-mentioned “justified interests” category is the category most applicable to the visitors of our website, candidates, customers, suppliers and service providers. If you have objections to us processing your personal data because we consider it necessary for your justified interests, we must stop the corresponding activities due to your objection unless:

  • we can prove that we have overriding justified reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, or
  • we are processing your data in order to make, exercise or defend a legal claim.

Right to withdraw consent: if you have granted us your consent to process your personal data for certain activities, you can revoke this consent at any time. We shall stop the activity that you previously consented to provided that, in our view, there is no other reason that justifies the further processing of your data for this purpose. We will inform you of this if this is the case.
Application of data subjects for the provision of information about personal data: you can request a confirmation from us at any time about which data in relation to you we have saved, and you can request that we amend, update or delete this information. We can ask you to confirm your identity or to provide more information in relation to your request. If we grant you access to the information in relation to you that we have saved, we shall not levy any fees for this unless your request is “manifestly unfounded or excessive”. If you request further copies of this information from us, we can invoice appropriate administration costs, insofar as legally permitted. We can reject your request if this is legally permitted. We will in all cases provide reasons if we reject your request.

Right to deletion: under certain circumstances, you can demand that we delete your personal data. In general, the information must meet one of the following criteria:

  • The data is no longer required for the purpose for which it was originally recorded and/or processed;
  • You have revoked your consent for us to process your data and there is no other valid reason to continue to process it;
  • The data has been processed unlawfully (i.e. in a manner that contravenes the GDPR);
  • The data must be deleted so that we can fulfil our obligations as the data controller; or
  • You object to processing and we cannot show any overriding justified reasons for further processing by us, if we process the data, for why we consider it necessary for our justified interests.

Right to restriction of processing: under certain circumstances, you can demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data. This means that we will in the future only save your data and not be able to make further processing activities until:

  • One of the conditions stated below is no longer applicable;
  • You grant your consent; or
  • Further processing is necessary to make, exercise or defend legal claims, to protect the rights of other people, or if it is necessary due to justified public interest of the EU or a member state.

Right to correction: you can also demand that we correct incorrect or incomplete data in relation to you that we have saved. If we forward this personal data to third parties, we shall inform them of the correction as soon as this is possible and does not require disproportionate effort. If applicable, we will inform you of the third parties to which we have sent the incorrect or incomplete personal data. If we feel that it is not reasonable to comply with your request, we will explain the reasons for this decision to you.

Right to data portability: if you want, you are entitled to have your data transferred from one controller to another. To this end, we provide you with the data in a common machine-readable format, protected with a password, so that you can transfer your data to another online platform. Alternatively, we can transfer the data for you directly. The right to data portability is applicable for:

  • Personal data that we process in an automated manner (i.e. without human intervention);
  • Personal data that you have provided to us; and
  • Personal data that we process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract.

Right to complain to a supervisory authority: you have the right to submit a complaint to the competent local supervisory authority.
If you want to exercise one of these rights or revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data (if your consent constitutes the legal basis for the processing of your personal data), please contact us. Please note that we can keep recordings of your correspondence in order to better solve the problems you address.

You can unsubscribe to notifications or newsletters at any time.

It is important that the personal information saved in relation to you is correct and up-to-date. Please keep us up-to-date if your personal data changes in the period in which we save data.

2 Use of our website

2.1 Information about your computer
Each time you access our website, we collect the following information about your computer: your computer’s IP address, the query from your browser and the time of this query. The status and amount of data transferred are also recorded a part of this query. We also collect product and version information about the browser and computer operating system used. Furthermore, we record the website from which the access to the online presence came. The other data is saved for a limited time period (a maximum of 26 months).

Our website uses the possibility of IP anonymisation offered by Google Analytics. Your IP address is thus shortened before being sent to Google and thus made anonymous. As a result, only rough localisation is possible. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide further services to us connected to the use of the website and the internet. The IP address sent by your browser as part of the Google Analytics process is not combined with other data.

The relationship to the web analysis provider is based on a corresponding contract for commissioned data processing with the provider. You can find further information in relation to data protection at Google here: and Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield,

Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of Section 96 Paragraph 3 of the Austrian Telecommunications Act (TKG) as well as Article 6 Paragraph 1 (a) (consent) and/or (f) (justified interest) of the GDPR.

2.2 Use of cookies/Google Analytics
For our online presence, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”. A “cookie” is a small data file that is saved on your computer’s hard drive. It does not damage your system. We use it to track your activities and to ensure that you can enjoy a pleasant customer experience when visiting our website. We can use the information from cookies to ensure that, the next time you visit, we can present you with options that correspond to your settings. We can also use cookies to analyse data traffic and for advertising purposes.
The information obtained by Google Analytics about your use of this website (including your anonymised IP address and the URLs of the website called up) is sent to Google servers in the USA and saved there. We do not save any data that is collected in connection with Google Analytics.

You can prevent the saving of cookies by means of a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that the functionality of our website may be restricted when deactivating cookies. Furthermore, you can prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie in relation to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google.

With the above protective precautions, the anonymisation of the IP address as well as the possibility to object, we are of the opinion that data processing to optimise our online presence is to be seen as a justified interest in data processing in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) GDPR.

4 Consent

Under certain circumstances, we must obtain your consent for the processing of your personal data in relation to certain activities. Depending on precisely what the data is needed for, we obtain this consent explicitly.

Pursuant to Article 4 (11) of the GDPR, consent is “any freely-given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her”. Simply put, it means that:

  • You have to grant us your consent voluntarily, without us exerting any kind of pressure on you;
  • You must know what you are giving consent to – we will therefore ensure that we have informed you sufficiently;
  • You should have control over the processing activities that you consent to or do not consent to. We provide you with this detailed control in our data protection setting centre; and
  • You must grant us your consent in the form of a positive, affirmative action.

We store recordings of the consent that you have granted this way. As already stated, in some cases consent by means of a soft opt-in is sufficient.

As already mentioned, you have the right to revoke your consent to our activities. You can do this at any time.
