Privacy Policy / Disclaimer

General Information

Protecting your personal data is a key concern for us and therefore has high priority. For this reason, we process your data solely based on the applicable data protection regulations, with particular regard to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and Telecommunications Act. In this data protection declaration, we are informing you of the key aspects of data processing in relation to our website.


Use of Server Data

Our website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed or the name of the file accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without these data being directly related to your person.

For technical reasons, the following data, which your Internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider, are collected (so-called server log files):

- browser type and version

- operating system used

- Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)

- Website you are visiting

- Date and time of your access

- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address

These anonymous data are stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and thus do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a particular person. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimize our website and our offers.


Cookies

Our websites use cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer. A cookie enables your browser to recognize you and your most recent settings on the website.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. These cookies are usually called "session cookies", which are deleted at the end of your visit. Some cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.

You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software, however please note that if you do so you may not be able to use the full functionality of the website.


Web analysis

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics of Google LLC, 160 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View CA 94943, USA. We have concluded a contract with the provider for the processing of order data.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which guarantees compliance with European data protection laws.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies for pseudonymised range measurement, which are transmitted either by our server or the server of third parties to the browser of the user. The use of cookies serves to increase the user-friendliness and security of this website.

This recognition takes place on the basis of the IP address stored in the cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The information obtained in this way is used to optimise our offers and make it easier for you to access our website. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent this by setting your browser so that no cookies are stored.

You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

More information about the technology used by Google can be found at www.google.com/analytics.

Data processing is based on the statutory provisions of § 96 (3) TKG and Art. 6 (1) (a ) or (f) (legitimate interest) of the GDPR.

Our concern in the sense of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised.

The user data is stored for a period of 14 months.

Due to the interest in analysis and optimisation, the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook (Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland) is used within our online offer. The code implemented on this page can evaluate the behaviour of visitors. With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able to determine the visitors of our offer as a target group for the display of ads, so-called "Facebook ads". The collected data cannot be viewed by us, but can only be used in the context of advertisements.


Online presence in the social media

We are present on social platforms Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube in order to be able to communicate with users who are also active there and inform them about our services. The terms and conditions and data processing guidelines of the respective platform operators apply exclusively when the respective platform is called up.


Facebook Contests

All contests are in no way connected to Facebook. All entrants accept our privacy policy and terms and conditions by participating. Eligible to participate in the sweepstakes are all persons who have reached the age of 18 and are resident in Austria. Employees of the entire HIRSCH Servo AG and affiliated companies are excluded. Participation with forged identities or identities of third parties is not permitted. The winners will be randomly selected from all eligible participants within one week of the closing date and notified via Facebook Messenger. Only 1 prize per participant is possible. The participant guarantees to be the owner of the necessary rights to the uploaded or linked photos. If the participant is not the sole author or holder of the rights, he expressly declares that he has the necessary rights to participate in the competition. The participant grants us the following simple, temporally and spatially unlimited but non-exclusive rights of use to the photo used by him. If the participant uploads photos, the participant guarantees that he will not send any content whose provision, publication or use violates applicable law or the rights of third parties. The participant indemnifies us against any claims of third parties whatsoever resulting from the illegality of photos used by the participant. The obligation to indemnify also includes the obligation to completely indemnify the organizer from legal defense costs (e.g. court and attorney fees). By participating in the competition, the participant releases Facebook from any liability. We reserve the right to terminate the competition in whole or in part prematurely at any time, even without adhering to deadlines, or to modify it in its course, if it is not possible for technical (e.g. computer virus, manipulation of or errors in software/hardware) or legal reasons (e.g. prohibition by Facebook) to guarantee a proper execution of the competition. We are responsible for the collection, processing and use of personal data of the participants, provided that we process these ourselves. We will only use the participant's personal details and other personal data within the framework of the statutory provisions of data protection law. We will store, process and use the information only to the extent necessary for the execution of the competition or with the consent of the participant. This also includes use to exercise the rights of use granted. The data will be used exclusively for the execution of the raffle and then deleted. Austrian law applies. A legal way to the examination of the draw is impossible.

Your rights

In principle, you are entitled to the right of access (Art 15 GDPR), right to rectification (Art 16 GDPR), right to erasure (Art 17 GDPR), right to restriction of processing (Art 18 GDPR), right to data portability (Art 20 GDPR) and right to object (Art 21 GDPR).

If you believe that the processing of your data violates the data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the “Austrian Data Protection Authority”.


Contact data

We would like to point out that there is no internal data protection officer in the companies of the HIRSCH Servo Group, as this is not required by law. However, there is a central data protection coordinator in the HIRSCH Servo Group who supports you in all data protection matters.
