In the following, we would like to inform you about data protection on our websites and about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Data protection has a high priority for us.
Personal data are all data with which you could be personally identified, such as name, IP address, telephone number, etc.. Some of this data is processed automatically when you visit our website (e.g. IP address, browser type, operating system, etc), or when you give us your consent to process it, or when you provide us with your data voluntarily, e.g. by entering your data in a form on our website.
Furthermore, we would like to inform you about your rights under the GDPR.
You have the right to receive information free of charge at any time about the origin, recipient and purpose of your personal data processed by us, as well as the right to correct or delete this data.
You also have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. If you have given us consent to process your data, you can revoke this consent at any time for the future. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority.
The person responsible for data protection / processing is the

Chairman of the Board: Lord Mayor Michael Cerny
Members of the board: Petra Strobl, Jens Wein
Processing of your data within the scope of the services we provide
In the case of our customers, guests or business partners, or in the event that you are interested in our services, the type, scope and purpose of the processing of your personal data are based on the contractual or pre-contractual relationships existing between us. In this context, we process personal data that we request from you or that you provide to us in order to answer your enquiry, to provide you with an offer or to process your order. The persons concerned are interested parties, business partners and contractual partners. The processing purpose is the handling of contractual services, communication, as well as answering contact requests and office and organisational procedures.
Unless otherwise stated in the further notes of this data protection declaration, the processing of your data, as well as its transfer to third parties, is limited to those data that are necessary and appropriate to answer your enquiries and/or to fulfil the contract, to protect our rights, as well as to fulfil legal obligations.
The data concerned are
- Inventory data (e.g. names, addresses)
- Payment data (e.g. bank details, invoices)
- Contact data (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number, postal address)
- Contract data (e.g. subject matter of the contract, duration of the contract)
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 I 1 lit. b DSGVO, the fulfilment of the contract or the fulfilment of pre-contractual requests.
Unless a specific storage period is stated in this data protection declaration, we store your personal data until the purpose for the data processing no longer applies. We delete your personal data when we no longer need it, i.e. after termination of the contractual relationship existing between us, or after our legitimate interest in the further processing of the data has ceased to exist, or if you request us to delete it. Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected. Likewise, it may be necessary to process your personal data until the expiry of these periods in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims arising from contractual relationships, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person. We will then delete the personal data required for this purpose only after these periods have expired. However, until the expiry of these periods, we limit the processing of this data to these purposes.
Calling up the websites - processing of personal data and type and purpose of use
When you call up our website, you transmit data to our web server (out of technical necessity) via your internet browser. The following data is processed in the server log files during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:
- the page from which the file was requested - referrer URL
- the name of the file
- the date and time of the request
- a description of the type of web browser / browser version and operating system used
- IP address of the requesting computer
- access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- Amount of data transferred
For technical reasons (calling up the website), this data is stored for a short time. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After 7 days at the latest, the IP addresses are deleted or anonymised.
The data is evaluated exclusively for internal purposes and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person. A comparison with other data does not take place.
The aforementioned data is processed for the following purposes:
- Ensuring a proper and smooth connection setup of the website,
- Ensuring a comfortable use of the website,
- evaluation of system security and stability
The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. You can visit the website without providing any personal information.
Information is stored in the cookie that is related to the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity. Cookies do not contain any personal data and can therefore not be directly assigned to any user.
Google Tag Manager - Google Analytics
This website uses the Google Tag Manager. Through this service, website tags can be managed via an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics may use so-called "cookies" with your consent (Art 6 I S 1 lit a DSGVO). The information about your use of this website, such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and time of the server request are transmitted to a Google server and processed there. Google may also use other technologies, such as tracking pixels, to analyse the use of the website.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage, such as market research and customising websites. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised, so that an allocation is not possible (IP masking).
You can find more information on data protection at Google at policies.google.com/privacy or athttps://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.
Enquiries by e-mail, fax or telephone
If you contact us by e-mail, fax or telephone, your enquiry including all personal data resulting from it (e.g. name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. The data will not be passed on without your consent. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data, but it is not possible to process your request without providing your data.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (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 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) and / or on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO), as we have a legitimate interest in effectively processing the enquiries sent to us.
The (e-mail) data sent to us via contact requests will be stored by us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular legal retention periods - remain unaffected.
Data when using our contact form
If you send us a message via our contact form, you can also use a pseudonym instead of your real name. The entry of an e-mail address is necessary to enable us to contact you by e-mail. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data, but it is not possible to process your request without providing your data.
The data you enter in the contact form will only be used by us to respond to your enquiry via the contact form. We do not pass on the data you enter in the contact form to third parties or use this data for any other purpose than to answer your enquiry. Data processing is carried out either for the purposes of fulfilling a contract to which the data subject is a contracting party or for carrying out pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 I S 1 lit b DSGVO), or in accordance with Art. 6 (1) S 1 lit a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntarily given consent and / or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit f DSGVO), as we have a legitimate interest in effectively processing the enquiries addressed to us.
Your data will be deleted once we have completed processing your enquiry, provided that there are no legal obligations to retain the data.
We only send our newsletter with promotional information (hereinafter "newsletter") with the express consent of the recipient in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. after registering for our newsletter, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no third party can register with your e-mail address. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data, but it is not possible to send a newsletter without providing your data.
Registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address.
To register for our newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask you to provide your first and last name as well as your address. This information is voluntary and only serves to personalise the newsletter. You can also use a pseudonym.
Your e-mail address will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from our newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time in the future by either clicking on the link at the end of each newsletter in the newsletter itself or by clicking on the "Unsubscribe from newsletter" link on our website and then following the steps described.
The consent to the sending of e-mail addresses is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. Our interest is directed towards the use of a user-friendly as well as secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of users for information about our products.
We would like to point out that you can revoke your consent to the future processing of your personal data at any time. Further information on your right of revocation can be found under "Data subject rights".
With your consent (Art 6 I S 1 lit a DSGVO), this website integrates Google Maps, a mapping service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"), for the display of an interactive map and for the creation of directions.
By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Your IP address may also be transferred to the USA. Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.
When calling up Google Maps, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
Photo/filming at public events
At public events or trade fairs, photos (photographs) or film recordings (films) may be taken which could also depict participants. These recordings may be published for reporting on the event in the press as well as on the internet in accordance with Art 6 I S 1 lit f DSGVO. Recipients are users of the online and print and video media worldwide.
We assume that the persons participating in the event or otherwise involved consent to the creation and publication of the recordings exclusively for public relations purposes, including in social media, through their behaviour of participation or involvement. Consent includes consent to download recordings from our websites.
For recordings that do not show persons of contemporary history, have persons as an accessory next to landscapes or other localities or recordings that reflect meetings, processions or similar events and their character, you will be asked for your consent in individual cases (Art 6 I S 1 lit a DSGVO).
In the event that no consent is given for these photographs to be taken or the consent is revoked, you will not suffer any disadvantages.
In the case of photographs in which the focus is on individual persons, the persons concerned have the right and the possibility to inform the photographer at any time that they do not wish to be photographed. Should this not be possible or not be observed, we will subsequently prevent publication by us if we are notified accordingly.
If you do not wish to be pictured in such photographs, you can contact the person in charge or the photographer directly at any time during the event.
As a rule, we keep the photographs and films for archiving purposes indefinitely. Photographs for which consent was obtained because it was required will be deleted immediately upon withdrawal of consent.
Data protection when sending application documents
If you send us your application documents, we will only use them to decide on your application and will not pass on your data to third parties. We would like to point out that we do not currently offer any encryption of your data when sending application documents by e-mail. However, you can send your attachments encrypted to us by e-mail, e.g. using the 7ZIP programme (http://www.7-zip.de/), and inform us of your password separately, e.g. by telephone. You will receive an e-mail from us to your e-mail address informing you that we have received your application. You can also send us your application by post at any time.
Application data is kept and managed separately from other data records.
If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted at the latest 6 months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller oppose deletion or the applicant has expressly consented to longer storage and retention of his or her application, e.g. for possible subsequent contact in the case of vacancies. Other legitimate interests in this sense are, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
Data processing for the purpose of contacting you and processing your application data is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a,b DSGVO on the basis of your voluntarily given consent, as well as for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

As a rule, usage profiles are also created. This is particularly the case if you are a member of the respective platform and are logged in to it. The usage profiles can be used by the providers to play interest-based advertising to you. To prevent social media operators from collecting information about you during your visit to our websites, you should log out of the respective social media before you start visiting our websites and delete any existing social media cookies from your browser.
