Handling of personal data
Data protection law distinguishes between two types of data: personal and non-personal. Information that can identify a person is collected under “personal data”. In particular, your customer data belongs to this category and may include, for example, your company, name, address, telephone number and email address. We only store such information when you supply it to us, e.g., on registering or purchase. Your customer information is stored for the entire duration of the contractual relationship.
We protect against access, use and publication
We also use your personal data to communicate with you. You may well receive a transaction-related welcoming letter or an order confirmation for example. From time to time we send marketing news per email to bring to your attention new products or services, or to send other information which we believe may well be of interest to you.
You may revoke storage of personal data at any time. In keeping with the legal requirements, your data will immediately be deleted/blocked, insofar as we do not require your data to fulfil our obligations towards you. This can also be carried out retrospectively for all your personal data stored in the past.
DVR (Austrian Data Protection Authority) Number
The processing of the data is registered with the Austrian Data Processing Registry (Datenverarbeitungsregister – DVR) which has given us the DVR number 0473715. For further information please visit the website of the Austrian Data Protection Authority: Österreichischen Datenschutzbehörde.
