TLS encryption with https

We use https to transfer data securely on the internet. By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission over the internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You acknowledge the use of this security of data transfer at the small lock symbol in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the https scheme as part of our Internet address.



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.


Whenever you surf the internet, you are using 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.

One thing cannot be dismissed: Cookies are really useful helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More precisely, it is HTTP cookies, as there are other cookies for other applications. HTTP cookies are small files that are stored by our website on your computer. These cookie files are automatically stored in the cookie folder, the „brain“ of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.

Cookies store certain user data 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 gives you the attitude you are used to. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file; in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are 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 or trojans. Cookies cannot access information from your PC.

For example, cookie data can look like this:

Name: _ga

Value: GA1.2.1326744211.152221103795

purpose: distinguishing the website visitors

expiration date: after 2 years

These minimum sizes should be able to support a browser:

·       At least 4096 bytes per cookie

·       At least 50 cookies per domain

·       At least 3000 cookies in total


The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and will be clarified in the following sections of the privacy policy. At this point we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies.

There are 4 types of cookies:

Essential cookies

These cookies are necessary to ensure the basic functions 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.

Practical cookies

These cookies collect information about the user behavior and whether the user gets any error messages. In addition, these cookies are also used to measure the load time and behavior of the website on different browsers.

Targeted cookies

These cookies ensure 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.


You decide for yourself how and whether you want to use cookies. Regardless of which service or which website the cookies come from, you always have the option of deleting, deactivating or only partially allowing cookies. For example, you may block third-party cookies but allow all other 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 them in your browser settings:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: Manage cookies and website data Safari

Firefox:to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Deleting cookiesInternet Explorer: Deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you do not want to have cookies, you can install your browser so that it will always inform you when a cookie should be set. In this way, you can decide with every single cookie whether you allow it or not. The procedure varies depending on the browser. It’s best to search Google for „Chrome cookies“ or „Disable cookies Chrome“ in the case of a Chrome browser.


Since 2009 there are the so-called „cookie guidelines“. It states that the storage of cookies requires the consent of 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 the “Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called „HTTP State Management Mechanism“ here:

Google Ads (Google AdWords) Conversion Tracking Privacy Policy

We use Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) as an online marketing tool to promote our products and services. We want to make more people aware of the high quality of our offers on the internet. As part of our advertising efforts through Google Ads, we use Google LLC’s Conversion Tracking on our website, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google“). With this free tracking tool, we can better tailor our promotional offer to your interests and needs. In the following article, we want to explain in more detail why we use conversion tracking, what data is stored there and how you can prevent this data storage.


Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) is Google LLC’s in-house online advertising system. Since we want as many people as possible get to know our website, Google Ads has the best platform for doing so online. Of course, we also want to gain an accurate overview of the cost-benefit factor of our promotions. That’s why we use the Google Ads Conversion Tracking Tool.

But what is a conversion actually? A conversion occurs when you change from a purely interested website visitor to a trading visitor. This happens whenever you click on our ad and then perform another action, such as visiting our website. With Google’s Conversion Tracking Tool, we track what happens after a user clicks on our Google Ads ad. For example, we can see if products are being purchased, services are being used, or if users have signed up for our newsletter.


We use Google Ads to advertise our offer on other websites as well. The goal is that our advertising campaigns only those people who are interested in our offers. With the conversion tracking tool, we can see which keywords, ads, ad groups and campaigns lead to the desired customer actions. We see how many customers interact with our ads on one device and then convert them. Through this data, we can calculate our cost-benefit factor, measure the success of individual advertising measures, and consequently optimize our online marketing efforts. We can also use the data gained to tailor our advertising offer to your individual needs.


We’ve included a conversion tracking tag or code snippet on our website to better analyze certain user actions. Now, when you click on one of our Google Ads ads, the cookie „Conversion“ from a Google domain is stored on your computer (mostly in the browser) or mobile device. Cookies are small text files that store information on your computer.

Here are the key Google’s conversion tracking data:

Name: Conversion

Value: EhMI_aySuoyv4gIVled3Ch0llweVGAEgt-mr6aXd7dYlSAGQ221103795

Purpose: This cookie stores any conversion that you make on our site after you have come to us through a Google Ads.

Date: After 3 months

Name: Expiration_gac

Value: 1.1558695989.EAIaIQobChMIiOmEgYO04gIVj5AYCh2CBAPrEAAYASAAEgIYQfD_BwE

Purpose: This is a classic Google Analytics cookie and is used to record various actions on our website.

Expiration date: After 3 months

Note: The _gac cookie only appears in conjunction with Google Analytics. The above list is by no means exhaustive, as Google uses analytical cookies for other purposes.

Once you complete an action on our website, Google recognizes the cookie and stores your action as a so-called conversion. As long as you are browsing our website and the cookie has not expired, we and Google recognize that you have found us through our Google Ads ad. The cookie is read out and sent back to Google Ads with the conversion data. It’s also possible that other cookies are used to measure conversions. Google Ads Conversion Tracking can be further refined and improved using Google Analytics. For ads that Google displays in different places on the web, cookies may be placed under our domain as „__gads“ or „_gac“. Since September 2017, various campaign information from analytics.js has been saved with the _gac cookie. The cookie stores this information as soon as you visit one of our sites for which Google Ads auto-tagging has been set up. Unlike cookies that are set up for Google domains, Google can only read these conversion cookies when you visit our website. We collect and receive no personal information. We receive a report from Google with statistical evaluations. For example, we hear the total number of users who have clicked on our ad, and we see which promotional efforts have been well received.


At this point we want to point out that we have no influence on how Google continues to use the collected data. According to Google, the data is encrypted and stored on secure servers. In most cases, conversion cookies expire after 30 days and do not provide any personal information. The cookies named „Conversion“ and „_gac“ (used in conjunction with Google Analytics) have an expiration date of 3 months.


You cannot participate in Google Ads Conversion Tracking. If you disable the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through your browser, you block the conversion tracking. In this case, they are not included in the statistics of the tracking tool. You can change the cookie settings in your browser at any time. This works a bit differently for every browser. Here are the instructions on how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: Manage cookies and website 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 generally do not want cookies, you can set your browser to always inform you when a cookie is about to be set. So you can decide with each single cookie whether you allow the cookie or not. By downloading and installing this browser plug-in on will also disable all „advertising cookies.“ Keep in mind that disabling these cookies does not prevent you from viewing ads, only personalized ads.

By being certified for the US-EU Privacy Shield, the US corporation, Google LLC, must comply with EU data protection laws. To learn more about privacy at Google, we recommend Google’s general privacy policy:


Instagram Privacy Policy

We have implemented Instagram features on our website. Instagram is a social media platform owned by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram has been a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is one of the Facebook products. Embedding Instagram content on our website allows us to show you content such as buttons, photos or videos from Instagram directly on our website. When you visit web pages on our website that have an Instagram feature, data is sent to Instagram, stored and processed. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Your data will thus be processed across all Facebook companies.

In the following, we want to give you a closer look at why Instagram collects data, what data it is about, and how you can largely control data processing. Since Instagram belongs to Facebook Inc., we get our information from Instagram policies, but also from the Facebook data policy itself.


Instagram is one of the most popular social media networks worldwide. Instagram combines the benefits of a blog with the benefits of audiovisual platforms like YouTube or Vimeo. You can upload photos and short videos to Instagram, edit them with different filters and also distribute them on other social networks. In case you do not want to actively upload anything, you can still follow other interesting users.


Instagram is a social media platform that increased its user numbers in recent years. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on our website. That’s why a varied presentation of our content is a matter of course for us. With the embedded Instagram features, we can enrich our content with helpful, fun and exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the collected data may also be useful for personalized advertising on Facebook. This way, our ads are only shown to people who are really interested in our products or services. Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We receive summarized statistics and thus more insight about your wishes and interests. It is important to note that these reports do not personally identify you.


If you come across any sites that incorporate Instagram features (such as Instagram images or plug-ins), your browser will automatically connect to Instagram’s servers. This data is sent to Instagram, stored and processed. Regardless of whether you have an Instagram account or not. This includes information about our website, your computer, purchases made, advertisements you see and how you use our services. Furthermore, the date and time of your interaction with Instagram are saved. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram saves significantly more data about you.

Facebook distinguishes between customer data and event data. We assume that this is exactly the case with Instagram. Customer data includes, for example, name, address, telephone number and IP address. These customer details will not be shared with Instagram until you have „hashed“ them. Hashing means that a record is transformed into a string. This allows you to encrypt the contact information. In addition, the above-mentioned „event data“ will also be transmitted. By „event data“ Facebook – and consequently Instagram – understand your user behavior. It may also happen that contact data is combined with event data. The collected contact data will be compared with the data that Instagram already has from you.

Throuch small text files (cookies), which are usually set in your browser, the collected data is transmitted to Facebook. Depending on the Instagram features used and whether you have an Instagram account yourself, different amounts of data are stored.

We assume that data processing works the same on Instagram as on Facebook. That means: if you have an Instagram account or visited, Instagram has at least set a cookie. If that’s the case, your browser will send info to Instagram via the cookie as soon as you come into contact with an Instagram feature. At the latest after 90 days (after adjustment) these data are again deleted or anonymized. Although we’ve been working intensively on Instagram’s data processing, we cannot say exactly what data Instagram collects and stores exactly.

Below we show you cookies that are set in your browser at least, if you click on an Instagram function (such as a button or an Instagram image). In the following test, we assume that you do not have an Instagram account. If you are logged in to Instagram, of course, significantly more cookies are set in your browser.

These cookies were used in our test:

Expiration date: After the end of the session

Note: We can not claim completeness here. Which cookies are set in an individual case depends on the embedded functions and the your use of Instagram.


Instagram shares the information it receives between the Facebook companies with external partners and with people you connect to worldwide. The data processing takes place in compliance with their own data directive. For safety reasons, your data is distributed on Facebook servers around the world. Most of these servers are in the USA.


Thanks to the Basic Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, transferability, rectification and deletion of your data. In the Instagram settings you can manage your data. If you want to completely erase your data on Instagram, you’ll need to permanently delete your Instagram account.

Here’s how the Instagram account works:

Open the Instagram app first. On your profile page, go down and click on „Help section“. Now you come to the company website. On the webpage, click „Manage the account“ and then „Clear your account“.

If you delete your account altogether, Instagram will delete posts such as your photos and status updates. Information shared by others about you is not part of your account and will not be deleted.

As mentioned above, Instagram stores your data primarily through cookies. You can manage, deactivate or delete these cookies in your browser. Depending on your browser, the administration always works a bit differently. Here we show you the instructions of the most important browsers.

Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies

Microsoft Edge: Delete and Manage Cookies

You can also set up your browser so that you are always informed when a cookie is to be set. Then you can always decide individually whether you want to allow the cookie or not.

Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. and Facebook is an active participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. This framework ensures proper data transfer between the US and the European Union. Learn more about it here:
