2. General notes and mandatory information
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this data protection explanation.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., communication by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Information on the responsible party
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
Hafferlstraße 7, 4020 Linz, Austria
Telephone: +43 (0)732 931670
The responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc)
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of objection against data collection in special cases and against direct marketing (Art. 21 DSGVO)
If the data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 paras. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which a processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweighs your interests, rights, and freedoms or the processing serves the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims (objection according to Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO).
If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection according to Art. 21 paras. 2 DSGVO).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of the DSGVO, the persons concerned have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, workplace, or place of presumed infringement. The right of appeal shall be without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right of data transferability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Encrypted payment transactions on this website
If, after the conclusion of a contract with costs, there is an obligation to send us your payment data (e.g., account number for direct debit authorization), these data are required for payment processing.
Payment transactions via the usual means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are carried out exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
With encrypted communication, your payment data, which you transmit to us, cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion, and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, their origin, and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking, or deletion of these data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for this and other questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of the processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the check, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data happened/happens unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense, or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have filed an objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO, you must weigh your interests against ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests predominate, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may not be processed – apart from its storage – without your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
3. Data collection on our website
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective, and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases, or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions requested by you (e.g., shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 paras. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g., cookies for analyzing your surfing behavior) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 paras. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone, or fax, your request including all personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 paras. 1 lit. a DSGVO) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 paras. 1 lit. f DSGVO), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us.
The data you send us via contact requests will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process, and use personal data only to the extent necessary for the establishment, content, or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 paras. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process, and use personal data relating to the use of our Internet pages (usage data) only to the extent necessary to enable the user to make use of the service or to bill the user.
The collected customer data will be deleted after the completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
4. Social media
eLaw24 Safe Sharing Tool
The content on our pages can be shared on social networks such as Facebook or Twitter in compliance with data protection regulations. This page uses the eRecht24 Safe Sharing Tool. This tool establishes direct contact between networks and users only when the user actively clicks on one of these buttons. Clicking on the button constitutes consent within the meaning of Art. 6 paras. 1 lit. a DSGVO. This consent may be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
This tool does not automatically transfer user data to the operators of these platforms. If the user is registered with one of the social networks, an information window appears when using the social buttons on Facebook, Twitter & Co. in which the user can confirm the text before sending it.
Our users can share the content of this site in social networks in accordance with data protection regulations, without complete surfing profiles being created by the network operators.
5. Payment providers and resellers
On our website, we offer payment via PayPal. The provider of this payment service is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter “PayPal”).

The transfer of your data to PayPal is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (consent) and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (processing to fulfill a contract). You have the possibility to revoke your consent to data processing at any time. A revocation has no effect on the effectiveness of past data processing operations.
