How We Handle Your Data

The use of our website is generally possible without providing any personal data. Inasmuch as personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our sites, this is always done on a voluntary basis. Data that you provide to us in order to receive information from us (such as, e.g., brochures, catalogues, newsletter) are always transmitted, collected and stored in encrypted form. These data are not forwarded to third parties without your explicit consent.

1. On written request, stating your name, your date of birth (necessary for identification in case of identical names of other people) and your full postal address, you will receive free information about your personal data that we process and store in the form of a letter.

2. In the case of a German postal address, the letter will be sent by registered post with return receipt within one month. If you have provided a postal address in Austria, you will receive the letter by personal delivery to the exclusion of a postal power of attorney (to ensure that the letter is delivered to you personally and to no-one else) within one month.Since we cannot guarantee this particularly easy and comfortable form for postal addresses outside of Austria or Germany, we must ask you in such cases to send us a good copy of your passport with your written request for information to prove and guarantee your identification. 

3. In the same manner, we guarantee your right to rectification and completion, and the right to erasure of your data on written request (including proof of ID in the form of a passport copy to prevent malicious data changes and erasures).

4. We guarantee your legitimate right to restriction of processing.

5. We guarantee your right to data portability of the data provided to us in XML format in electronic form as e-mail or in paper form.

6. We guarantee your right to object to the further processing of your personal data that have resulted from your particular situation as notified to us. This applies both to profiling and direct advertising based on the same, inasmuch as we carry out such forms of processing and advertising at all.

7. We in no case subject you to automated decision-making that restricts your rights and freedoms without notifying you and obtaining your explicit consent first.

8. However, we must observe the restrictions on the above rights pursuant to Art 23 GDPR, and we apologise for these obligations imposed upon us by law or by a regulatory authority.


You can withdraw your consent to storage at any time. The newsletters contain an unsubscribe link for this purpose. If you click on this link, your data will promptly be blocked against all access, and erased in a non-restorable manner the next time the database is reorganised.
