Privacy Policy – Data Protection Declaration

   

[German original here / die deutsche Originalfassung ist hier zu finden]

  

We’ve created this Privacy Policy declaration (version dated 23/05/2020-111317483), to explain to you which information we collect, how we use data and which options the users of this website have, in accordance with the guidelines of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679

Automatic Data Storage

Every time you visit a website nowadays, certain information is automatically created and saved, just as it happens on this website.

Whenever you visit our website like you are doing right now, our webserver (computer on which this website is saved/stored) automatically saves data such as

  • the address (URL) of the accessed website
  • browser and browser version
  • the operating system used
  • the address (URL) of the previously visited site (referrer URL)
  • the host name and the IP-address of the device the website is accessed from
  • date and time

in files (webserver-logfiles).

Usually, webserver-logfiles are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass this data on to others, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data will be viewed in case of illegal conduct.

 

Cookies

This website NO LONGER uses cookies; however, the associated DT Blog, which runs on WordPress, incorporates the Matomo analytics tool, but this is currently not systematically utilized here either. 

 

Even though this website doesn't use cookies any more, the following text about cookies in general might still be of interest to some readers, so I'll let it stand for the time being.


The following explains what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand privacy policies.

What exactly are cookies?

Every time you surf the internet, you use a browser. Common browsers are for example Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text-files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

One thing is not to be dismissed: Cookies are really useful little helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More accurately speaking these are HTTP-cookies, since there are also other cookies for other uses. Http-cookies are small files which are stored on your computer by this website. These cookie files are automatically put into a cookie folder, which is like 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 parts of your user data, such as e.g. language or personal page settings. When you visit this website again, your browser submits these “user specific” information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you the settings 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 by our site, while third-party cookies are created by partner-websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Every cookie is unique, because every cookie stores different data. The expiration time of a cookie also varies – it can be a few minutes, or up to a few years. Cookies are not software-programmes and contain no computer viruses, trojans or any other malware. Cookies also cannot access information on your computer.

This is an example of what cookie-files can look like:

name: _ga
value: GA1.2.1326744211.152111317483-9
purpose: differentiation between website visitors
expiration date: after 2 years

A browser should be able to support these minimum sizes:

  • at least 4096 bytes per cookie
  • at least 50 cookies per domain
  • at least 3000 cookies in total

   

Which types of cookies are there?

What exact cookies we use, depends on the services used. We will explain this in the following sections of this Privacy Policy declaration. Here we will briefly look at the different types of HTTP-cookies.

You can distinguish between 4 types of cookies:

Essential Cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user places a product in an online shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and only proceeds to checkout later. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.

Useful Cookies
These cookies collect information about user behaviour and whether the user receives any error messages. Furthermore, these cookies measure the website’s loading time as well as its behaviour within different browsers.

Target-orientated Cookies
These cookies ensure better user-friendliness. Thus, information such as previously entered locations, fonts or data in forms stay saved.

Advertising Cookies
These cookies are also known as targeting-Cookies. They serve the purpose of delivering individually adapted advertisements to the user. This can be very practical, but also rather annoying. Since there is no automated advertising on this website, this does not apply here.

Upon your first visit to a website you are often asked which of these cookie-types you want to accept. Furthermore, this decision will of course also be saved in a cookie.

How can I delete cookies?

How and whether you want to use cookies is up to you. Regardless of which service or website the cookies come from, you always have the option of deleting, deactivating or only partially allowing cookies. For example, you can block third-party cookies, but allow all other cookies.

If you want change or delete cookie-settings and would like to determine which cookies have been stored in your browser, you can find this in your browser-settings:

Chrome: Clear, enable and manage cookies in Chrome 

Safari: Manage cookies and website data in Safari

Firefox: Clear cookies and site data in Firefox

Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies

Microsoft Edge: Delete cookies in Microsoft Edge

If you generally do not want to allow any cookies, you can set up your browser in such a way that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether you want to allow it or not. The procedure varies depending on the browser. The best way to find instructions is to search Google using, say, the search term "Delete Chrome cookies" or "Disable Chrome cookies" (or equivalent search terms for the other browsers).

How is my data protected?

There is a “cookie policy” that has been in place since 2009. It states that the storage of cookies requires the user’s consent. However, among the countries of the EU, these guidelines are often met with mixed reactions. In Austria the guidelines have been implemented in § 96 section 3 of the Telecommunications Act (TKG).

If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), called “HTTP State Management Mechanism”.

 

Rights under the General Data Protection Regulation

You are granted the following rights in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG):

  • right to restrict processing (article 18 GDPR)
  • right to notification – obligation to notify in connection with the correction or erasure of personal data or the restriction of processing (article 19 GDPR)
  • right to data transferability (article 20 GDPR)
  • Right to object (article 21 GDPR)
  • right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – (article 22 GDPR)

If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority, which in Austria is the data protection authority, whose website you can find at https://www.data-protection-authority.gv.at/.

As of 13 February 2022, this website NO LONGER uses Google Analytics!

Chrome: Clear, enable and manage cookies in Chrome 

Safari: Manage cookies and website data in Safari

Firefox: Clear cookies and site data in Firefox

Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies
