The protection of your personal data and your privacy are very important to us. With this statement, we would therefore like to inform you about how we handle your personal data.
Data processing body
The responsible body and service provider is Herrera & Herrera, Gumping 18, 3713 Harmannsdorf, Austria. If you have any questions about our website, the following details or data protection requests, please contact us.
What is personal data?
“Personal data” is defined by law as “individual information about the personal or factual circumstances of a particular or identifiable natural person.” This includes, for example, information such as name, address, e-mail address or information, which can be traced back to a specific natural person.
Collection and use of personal data
The use of our website is usually possible without disclosing any personal data.
When you contact us via our contact form, we will use your details to carry out your enquiries. This data will not be stored or passed on to third parties.
We use so-called cookies to make the navigation and use of our website as user-friendly as possible. Cookies are smaller files with text information that are stored on your hard drive during the use of our homepage. Cookies are used to store the preferences of visitors. In this way, we can tailor content on our website to your needs and thus improve our offer for you. We cannot relate to users with the cookies.

Comment function in the blog
We offer the visitors of our blog the opportunity to leave individual comments on blog posts. A blog is a portal run on a website, usually open to the public, in which one or more people, called bloggers, can post articles or write down their thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.
If you leave a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to this comment, information about the time of the comment entry as well as about the username you have chosen (pseudonym) will be stored and published. Your IP address will also be logged. This storage of the IP address is for security reasons and in case that someone violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by making a comment. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless such disclosure is required by law or necessary for legal action.
Using Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics is also based on cookies and allows the analysis of the use of websites. We have enabled IP anonymization for our website, so that the IP addresses submitted with user information are automatically shortened by Google before this data is stored. It is therefore not possible to draw any conclusions to you as a website visitor.
On our behalf, Google uses this information to evaluate the use of the website for us and to compile reports about the website activities. The data collected by Google will be automatically deleted after a period of 14 months. The described IP anonymization procedure was coordinated between Google and European data protection and freedom of information officers and recognized as compensating for data protection. Google has contractually committed to the regulations of the European GDPR. The privacy information about Google Analytics can be found Here.
You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser accordingly. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the site, as well as Google’s processing of that data by downloading and installing the plug-in available in the following Link.
Using Google Adsense
Our website uses Google AdSense, a service to include ads from Google Inc. (“Google”). In doing so, ads of the providers listed here can be used. Google AdSense uses so-called “cookies,” text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website. Google AdSense also uses so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). Through these web beacons, information such as visitor traffic on these pages can be evaluated. Google offers on their page detailed information on the subject and explains the procedure for an opt-out.
The information generated by cookies and web beacons about the use of this website and the delivery of advertising formats is transmitted to and stored on a Google server within the European Union or in another country of the European Economic Area. This information can be passed on by Google to Google’s contractors. However, Google will not merge your IP address with any other data you store. In the privacy settings on Google, you can choose whether you want to receive personalized advertising and set details to protect your personal information.
Use of YouTube
We have integrated components of YouTube on our website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to upload video clips free of charge and allows other users to view, review and comment on them. YouTube allows the publication of all kinds of videos, which is why complete film and TV shows, as well as music videos, trailers or user-made videos are available via the Internet portal.
YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC in the United States. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., USA.
Each time one of the pages containing a YouTube component on this website is accessed, the internet browser of the visitor is automatically prompted to download the corresponding YouTube component. For more information about YouTube, please visit https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google will be informed of which specific page of our website is visited by the user.
If a visitor of our page is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube will recognize which specific page of our website the user is visiting, and which YouTube content is being watched. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the user.
YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that the user has visited our website if the user is logged in to YouTube at the same time. This happens regardless of whether the user is clicking on a YouTube video or not. If such transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not intended by the user, they can prevent the transmission by logging out from their YouTube account before visiting our website.
