If you contact us via the contact form on the website or via email, the data you have provided will be stored with us for the purpose of processing your inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not disclose this data without your consent.
If you enter into a contract with us, these data will be stored within the company for at least the term of the contract.
2. Data storage
Please note that, within the context of your inquiry, the following data will be stored with us:

The data provided by you are necessary for performance of the contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures. We cannot enter into a contract with you without this data. The data will not be disclosed to third parties, with the exception of our tax advisor in the performance of our fiscal obligations. All data resulting from the contractual relationship will be stored for the term of the contract; at least, however, until expiry of the fiscal retention period. This data will be used to communicate with the key contact within the client company or interested company.
The data shall be processed on the basis of the statutory provisions of Sect. 96 Para 3 of the Telecommunications Act and Article 6(1)a (consent) and/or b (necessary for performance of a contract) of the GDPR.
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files which are stored on your end device with the aid of the browser. They do not cause any damage.

The relationship to the web analysis provider is based on an Adequacy Decision granted by the European Commission (“Privacy Shield”), which guarantees an adequate data protection level for data transfers to certified companies in the USA.

In Austria, this is the Data Protection Authority.
7. Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the features of Google Analytics Remarketing combined with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and DoubleClick. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This feature makes it possible to link target audiences for promotional marketing created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This allows advertising to be displayed based on your personal interests, identified based on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. your mobile phone), on other devices (such as a tablet or computer).
Once you have given your consent, Google will associate your web and app browsing history with your Google Account for this purpose. That way, any device that signs in to your Google Account can use the same personalized promotional messaging.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The aggregation of the data collected in your Google Account data is based solely on your consent, which you may give or withdraw from Google per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. For data collection operations not merged into your Google Account (for example, because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merge), the collection of data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing anonymous user behavior for promotional purposes.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.
Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
