Embedded Social Media Elements Privacy Policy

We embed elements of social media services on our website to display images, videos, and text. When you visit pages containing these elements, data is transmitted from your browser to the respective social media service and stored there. We do not have access to this data. The following links will take you to the pages of the respective social media services where it is explained how they handle your data:

Facebook Data Policy

We use selected Facebook tools on our website. Facebook is a social media network provided by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. With the help of these tools, we can offer the best possible services to you and people interested in our products and services. Below, we provide an overview of the various Facebook tools, what data is sent to Facebook, and how you can delete this data.

What are Facebook Tools?

In addition to many other products, Facebook offers what they officially refer to as "Facebook Business Tools." However, as this term is not widely recognized, we choose to refer to them simply as Facebook Tools. These tools include, among others:

  • Facebook Pixel
  • Social plugins (such as the "Like" or "Share" button)
  • Facebook Login
  • Account Kit
  • APIs (Application Programming Interfaces)
  • SDKs (Software Development Kits)
  • Platform integrations
  • Plugins
  • Codes
  • Specifications
  • Documentation
  • Technologies and services

Through these tools, Facebook extends its services and has the ability to collect information about user activities outside of Facebook.

Why do we use Facebook tools on our website?

We use Facebook tools to ensure that our services and products are presented only to people who are genuinely interested in them. Through the use of advertising (Facebook Ads), we can reach precisely these individuals. However, to display relevant advertisements to users, Facebook requires information about the desires and needs of people. This involves providing the company with information about user behavior (and contact details) on our website. In doing so, Facebook collects better user data, enabling them to display suitable advertisements about our products and services to interested individuals. These tools facilitate tailored advertising campaigns on Facebook.

Data about your behavior on our website is referred to by Facebook as "Event Data." These are also used for measurement and analysis services. Facebook can create "campaign reports" on the impact of our advertising campaigns on our behalf. Furthermore, through analysis, we gain a better understanding of how you use our services, website, or products, allowing us to enhance your user experience on our website. For example, with social plugins, you can directly share content from our site on Facebook.

What data is stored by Facebook tools?

The use of certain Facebook tools can result in the transmission of personal data (customer data) to Facebook. Depending on the tools used, customer data such as name, address, phone number, and IP address can be sent. Facebook uses this information to compare it with its own data, which it has from you (if you are a Facebook member). Before customer data is transmitted to Facebook, a process called "hashing" takes place. This involves transforming a data set into a character string, which also serves as data encryption. In addition to contact details, "Event Data" is also transmitted. "Event Data" refers to the information we collect about you on our website, such as which subpages you visit or which products you purchase from us. Facebook does not share the received information with third parties (such as advertisers) unless the company has explicit consent or is legally obligated to do so. "Event Data" can also be linked to contact details, allowing Facebook to offer better personalized advertising. After the aforementioned comparison process, Facebook deletes the contact details.

To optimize the delivery of advertisements, Facebook uses Event Data only when combined with other data collected by Facebook through other means. Facebook also utilizes Event Data for security, protection, development, and research purposes. Many of these data points are transferred to Facebook via cookies. Cookies are small text files used to store data or information in browsers. The number of cookies created in your browser varies depending on the tools used and whether you are a Facebook member. More specific information about individual Facebook cookies is provided in the descriptions of each Facebook tool. You can find general information about the use of Facebook cookies at

How long and where are the data stored?

In general, Facebook stores data until it is no longer needed for their own services and Facebook products. Facebook has servers distributed around the world where your data is stored. However, customer data is deleted within 48 hours after it has been matched with their own user data.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the right to access, correct, transfer, and delete your data. Complete deletion of data only occurs when you fully delete your Facebook account. Here's how to delete your Facebook account:

  1. Click on "Settings" on the right side of Facebook.
  2. Then click on "Your Facebook Information" in the left column.
  3. Now click on "Deactivation and Deletion."
  4. Choose "Delete Account" and then click on "Continue and Account Deletion."
  5. Enter your password, click "Continue," and then click on "Delete Account."

The storage of data that Facebook receives through our website is accomplished partly through cookies (e.g., for social plugins). You can disable, delete, or manage individual or all cookies in your browser. The instructions below show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies Microsoft Edge: Delete and manage cookies

Facebook is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information about this at We hope that we have provided you with the most important information about the use and data processing by Facebook tools. If you want to learn more about how Facebook uses your data, we recommend checking the data policies at

Instagram Privacy Policy

We have embedded Instagram features on our website. Instagram is a social media platform operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram has been a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is part of the Facebook family of products. The embedding of Instagram content on our website is referred to as embedding. This allows us to display content such as buttons, photos, or videos from Instagram directly on our website. When you visit pages of our web presence that have integrated Instagram features, data is transmitted, stored, and processed by Instagram. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Therefore, your data is processed across all Facebook companies.

In the following, we will provide you with a more detailed insight into why Instagram collects data, what data it collects, and how you can largely control data processing. Since Instagram is owned by Facebook Inc., we derive our information from Instagram's policies as well as Facebook's data policies.

What is Instagram?

Instagram is one of the most well-known social media networks worldwide. Instagram combines the benefits of a blog with the advantages of audiovisual platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. You can upload photos and short videos to "Insta" (as many users casually call the platform), edit them with various filters, and share them in other social networks. If you don't want to be active yourself, you can simply follow other interesting users.

Why do we use Instagram on our website?

Instagram is one of the social media platforms that has skyrocketed in recent years. Naturally, we have reacted to this trend. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on our website, which is why presenting our content in an engaging way is a given. By embedding Instagram features, we can enrich our content with helpful, entertaining, or exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the data collected can also be useful for personalized advertising on Facebook. This ensures that our ads reach only people who are genuinely interested in our products or services.

Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We receive aggregated statistics and gain more insight into your preferences and interests. It's important to note that these reports do not personally identify you.

What data does Instagram store?

When you come across one of our pages that has integrated Instagram features (such as Instagram images or plugins), your browser automatically connects to Instagram's servers. This results in data being sent, stored, and processed by Instagram, regardless of whether you have an Instagram account. This includes information about our website, your computer, purchases made, advertisements you see, and how you use our offerings. Date and time of your interaction with Instagram are also saved. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram stores much more data about you.

Facebook distinguishes between customer data and event data. We assume that this is the case with Instagram as well. Customer data includes information such as name, address, phone number, and IP address. This customer data is only transmitted to Instagram after it has been "hashed." Hashing involves transforming a data set into a character string to encrypt contact details. In addition, the aforementioned "event data" is transmitted. "Event data" includes information about your user behavior, a term recognized by both Facebook and Instagram. It can also happen that contact data is combined with event data. The collected contact data is compared with the data that Instagram already has about you.

The collected data is transmitted to Facebook through small text files known as cookies, which are usually set in your browser. The amount of data stored depends on the Instagram features used and whether you have an Instagram account.

We assume that data processing works similarly for Instagram as it does for Facebook. This means that if you have an Instagram account or have visited, Instagram has at least set a cookie. In this case, your browser sends information to Instagram through the cookie as soon as you interact with an Instagram feature. At the latest, these data are deleted or anonymized after 90 days.

Although we have thoroughly examined Instagram's data processing, we cannot state with absolute certainty which specific data Instagram collects and stores.

The following are cookies that are set in your browser, at a minimum, when you click on an Instagram feature, such as a button or an Instagram image. In our test, we assume that you do not have an Instagram account. If you are logged into Instagram, many more cookies will naturally be set in your browser.

YouTube Privacy Policy

We have embedded YouTube videos on our website to provide you with interesting videos directly on our site. YouTube is a video-sharing platform that has been a subsidiary of Google LLC since 2006. The video-sharing platform is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page on our website that has an embedded YouTube video, your browser automatically connects to YouTube or Google's servers. Depending on your settings, various data is transmitted. Google is responsible for all data processing, and Google's privacy policy applies.

Below, we will explain in more detail which data is processed, why we have included YouTube videos, and how you can manage or delete your data.

What is YouTube?

YouTube allows users to watch, rate, comment on, and upload videos for free. Over the years, YouTube has become one of the most important social media channels worldwide. To display videos on our website, YouTube provides a code snippet that we have embedded on our site.

Why do we use YouTube videos on our website?

YouTube is the video platform with the most visitors and the best content. We aim to provide you with the best user experience on our website, and interesting videos are an essential part of it. Through our embedded videos, we offer you additional helpful content alongside our text and images. Additionally, embedding videos makes our website more discoverable on the Google search engine. Even when we run Google Ads, Google can display these ads only to people who are genuinely interested in our offerings, thanks to the collected data.

What data is stored by YouTube?

When you visit one of our pages with an embedded YouTube video, YouTube sets at least one cookie that stores your IP address and our URL. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can usually associate your interactions on our website with your profile using cookies. This includes data such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information like browser type, screen resolution, or your internet provider. Other data may include contact details, ratings, sharing content on social media, or adding videos to your favorites on YouTube.

If you are not logged into a Google account or YouTube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier linked to your device, browser, or app. For example, this helps to maintain your preferred language settings. However, many interaction data points cannot be stored because fewer cookies are set.

The following list shows cookies that were set in a browser test. We display both cookies that are set without a logged-in YouTube account and those set with a logged-in account. Please note that the list may not be exhaustive, as user data depends on interactions on YouTube.

How long and where are the data stored?

The data you submit to YouTube and that is processed are stored on Google's servers. Most of these servers are located in the United States. You can see the exact locations of Google data centers at Your data is distributed across different servers, which allows for faster access and better protection against manipulation.

Google stores the collected data for varying durations. Some data can be manually deleted at any time, while others are automatically deleted after a specific period, and some data is stored by Google for a longer time. Certain data, such as items in "My Activity," photos, or documents stored in your Google account, remain there until you delete them. Even if you are not signed in to a Google account, some data associated with your device, browser, or app can be deleted.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

In general, you can manually delete data in your Google account. With the introduction of the automatic deletion feature for location and activity data in 2019, information is stored for either 3 or 18 months, depending on your choice, and then automatically deleted.

Regardless of whether you have a Google account or not, you can configure your browser to delete or disable Google cookies. The configuration process varies depending on which browser you use. The following guides explain how to manage cookies in your browser:

  • Chrome: Clear, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome
  • Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari
  • Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data stored by websites on your computer

Since YouTube is a subsidiary of Google, they share a common privacy policy. If you want to learn more about how your data is handled, we recommend consulting the privacy policy at


Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data. In the following, we'll explain what cookies are and why they are used to provide you with a better understanding of the privacy policy.

What are cookies exactly?

When using the internet, you typically browse with the help of a web browser. Common browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser, known as cookies.

Cookies are useful files and are used by most websites. These specific files are known as HTTP cookies, as there are other cookies for various applications. HTTP cookies are small files that are stored on your computer by our website. They are automatically placed in the cookie folder of your browser, which is akin to the "memory" of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value, and when defining a cookie, one or more attributes are specified.

Cookies store specific user data, such as language settings or personal page preferences. When you revisit our website, your browser sends the "user-related" information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and can provide you with the settings you're accustomed to. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file, while 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). Each cookie contains unique data, and the expiration time varies from a few minutes to several years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, trojans, or other harmful software. Cookies also do not have access to information on your computer.

This is how cookie data can look, for example:

Name: _ga Value: GA1.2.1326744211.152211107253 Purpose: Distinguishing website visitors Expiration: 2 years

A browser should support the following minimum specifications for cookies:

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

What types of cookies are there?

The specific types of cookies we use depend on the services employed and are detailed in the following sections of the privacy policy. Here, we would like to provide a brief overview of the different types of HTTP cookies.

Four main types of cookies can be distinguished:

  1. Essential Cookies: These cookies are necessary to ensure basic website functionality. For example, they are needed when a user adds a product to their shopping cart, continues to browse other pages, and then proceeds to checkout. These cookies prevent the cart from being deleted even if the user closes their browser window.

  2. Functional Cookies: These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. Additionally, they measure the loading time and behavior of the website with different browsers.

  3. Targeted Cookies: These cookies enhance user-friendliness by storing entered locations, font sizes, or form data.

  4. Advertising Cookies (also known as Targeting Cookies): These cookies are used to deliver personalized advertising to the user. This can be very practical but can also be quite annoying.

Typically, when you first visit a website, you are asked which types of cookies you want to allow. Your decision is also stored in a cookie.

How can I delete cookies?

The use of cookies is at your discretion. Regardless of which service or website the cookies originate from, you always have the option to delete, disable, or partially allow cookies. For example, you can block cookies from third-party providers but allow all other cookies.

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

  • Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome
  • Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari
  • Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data stored by websites on your computer
  • Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies
  • Microsoft Edge: Delete and manage cookies

If you do not want to receive cookies in general, you can configure your browser to notify you whenever a cookie is about to be set. This allows you to decide on a case-by-case basis whether to allow or deny the cookie. The procedure varies depending on the browser. It's best to search for instructions in Google using the search terms "Delete cookies Chrome" or "Disable cookies Chrome" for Chrome browsers, for example.

What about my data privacy?

Since 2009, there have been "cookie directives" that require user consent for storing cookies. However, there have been varying responses to these directives within EU countries. In Austria, the directive was implemented in § 96 (3) of the Telecommunications Act (TKG).

If you want to learn more about cookies and don't mind diving into technical documentation, we recommend reading the "HTTP State Management Mechanism" from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) available at

Facebook Pixel Privacy Policy

We use the Facebook Pixel on this website, a tool provided by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland, as part of the Facebook social media network. The code implemented on this page can analyze the behavior of visitors who have come to this website through a Facebook advertisement. This information can be used to improve Facebook ads, and Facebook collects and stores this data. The collected data is not visible to us but can be used as part of advertising campaigns.

Google Fonts Local Privacy Policy

On our website, we use Google Fonts from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). We have integrated Google Fonts locally, meaning they are hosted on our web server, not on Google's servers. This ensures that there is no connection to Google servers, and therefore, no data transmission or storage.

What Are Google Fonts?

Formerly known as Google Web Fonts, Google Fonts is an interactive directory of over 800 fonts made available for free by Google LLC. Google Fonts allow you to use fonts without the need to upload them to your own server. To prevent any data transfer to Google servers, we have downloaded the fonts to our server, thus ensuring compliance with data protection regulations.

Unlike other web fonts, Google provides unrestricted access to all fonts. This means we can access an extensive range of fonts without limitations, enhancing our website's appearance. You can find more information about Google Fonts and answers to common questions at

Google Fonts Privacy Policy

We use Google Fonts on our website. These are the "Google fonts" provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

To use Google Fonts, you do not need to register or provide a password. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested from Google domains, and According to Google, requests for CSS and fonts are entirely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google account, you don't need to worry about your Google account data being transmitted to Google while using Google Fonts. Google collects data on the usage of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and the fonts used and securely stores this information. We will take a closer look at how this data storage is structured.

What Are Google Fonts?

Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is a directory of over 800 fonts made available to users for free by Google LLC.

Many of these fonts are published under the SIL Open Font License, while others are released under the Apache License. Both are open-source software licenses.

Why Do We Use Google Fonts on Our Website?

Google Fonts allow us to use fonts on our website without having to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts are a key element in maintaining the quality of our website. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web, reducing data volume and offering a significant advantage, especially for mobile devices. When you visit our site, the small file size ensures a fast loading time. Additionally, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in various browsers, operating systems, and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can distort texts or entire web pages visually. Google Fonts eliminates these cross-platform issues thanks to its fast Content Delivery Network (CDN). Google Fonts support all major browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and work reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). We use Google Fonts to ensure that we present our entire online service as beautifully and consistently as possible.

What Data Does Google Store?

When you visit our website, the fonts are loaded from a Google server. Through this external request, data is transmitted to Google's servers. This also allows Google to recognize that you or your IP address have visited our website. The Google Fonts API was designed to minimize the use, storage, and collection of end-user data to what is necessary for the proper provision of fonts. By the way, API stands for "Application Programming Interface" and serves, among other purposes, as a data transmitter in the software domain.

Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests with Google, thus ensuring protection. By collecting usage statistics, Google can assess how well individual fonts are received. Google publishes these results on internal analysis pages, such as Google Analytics. Additionally, Google also uses data from its web crawler to determine which websites are using Google Fonts. These data are published in the Google Fonts BigQuery database. Business owners and developers utilize the Google BigQuery web service to analyze and manipulate large datasets.

It should be noted, however, that with each Google Font request, information such as language settings, IP address, browser version, browser screen resolution, and browser name is automatically transmitted to Google's servers. Whether these data are stored is not clearly ascertainable and is not definitively communicated by Google.

How long and where are the data stored?

Google stores requests for CSS assets on its servers for one day. These servers are primarily located outside the EU. This allows us to use Google Fonts through a Google stylesheet. A stylesheet is a template that can be used to quickly and easily change the design or font of a website, for example.

The font files are stored at Google for one year. Google's goal is to generally improve the loading time of websites. When millions of websites reference the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and will instantly appear on all other websites visited later. Google sometimes updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage, and improve design.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

The data that Google stores for one day or one year cannot be easily deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when you access the website. To be able to delete this data prematurely, you would need to contact Google Support at In this case, you can only prevent data storage by not visiting our site.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. This means we can have unlimited access to a wide range of fonts to optimize our website. You can find more information about Google Fonts and other questions at While Google addresses privacy-related issues there, detailed information on data storage is not included. Obtaining precise information about stored data from Google can be relatively challenging.

Google Maps Privacy Policy

We use Google Maps on our website from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Maps helps us show locations more effectively and tailor our service to your needs. By using Google Maps, data is transferred to Google and stored on Google servers. We will now delve into what Google Maps is, why we use this Google service, what data is stored, and how you can prevent this.

What is Google Maps?

Google Maps is an internet mapping service provided by Google Inc. With Google Maps, you can search for precise locations of cities, landmarks, accommodations, or businesses online via a PC, tablet, or app. When businesses are listed on Google My Business, additional information about the company is displayed along with its location. To display directions, map sections of a location can be embedded into a website using HTML code. Google Maps provides a view of the Earth's surface as a street map or as an aerial/satellite image. Thanks to Street View images and high-quality satellite images, very accurate representations are possible.

Why do we use Google Maps on our website?

All our efforts on this page aim to provide you with a useful and meaningful time on our website. By integrating Google Maps, we can provide you with essential information about various locations. You can instantly see where our company is located. The directions will always show you the best or fastest way to reach us. You can get directions for routes by car, public transportation, walking, or cycling. Providing Google Maps is part of our customer service.

What data is stored by Google Maps?

For Google Maps to offer its service fully, the company needs to collect and store data from you. This includes, among other things, the entered search terms, your IP address, and the latitude and longitude coordinates. If you use the route planner function, the entered starting address is also stored. However, this data storage takes place on Google Maps' web pages. We can only inform you about it but have no influence. Since we have integrated Google Maps into our website, Google sets at least one cookie (Name: NID) in your browser. This cookie stores data about your user behavior. Google primarily uses this data to optimize its services and provide you with personalized advertising.

The following cookie is set in your browser due to the integration of Google Maps:

Name: NID

Value: 188=h26c1Ktha7fCQTx8rXgLyATyITJ211107253

Purpose: NID is used by Google to customize ads to your Google search. With the help of the cookie, Google remembers your most frequently entered search queries or your past interaction with ads. This way, you always receive tailored ads. The cookie contains a unique ID that Google uses to collect your personal settings for advertising purposes.

Expiration date: after 6 months

Note: We cannot guarantee completeness in the information regarding stored data. Changes are never excluded, especially when using cookies. To identify the NID cookie, a dedicated test page was created where only Google Maps was integrated.

How long and where are the data stored?

Google's servers are located in data centers all over the world. However, most servers are primarily situated in the United States. That's why your data is predominantly stored in the USA. You can read exactly where Google's data centers are located here:

Google distributes data across various storage devices. This makes the data more accessible and better protected against potential manipulation attempts. Each data center also has specific contingency plans. For example, if there are issues with Google's hardware or a natural disaster disrupts the servers, the data remains relatively secure.

Google retains some data for a predefined period. For other data, Google offers the option to manually delete it. Additionally, the company anonymizes information (such as advertising data) in server logs by deleting part of the IP address and cookie information after 9 or 18 months.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

With the automatic deletion feature introduced in 2019 for location and activity data, information related to location and web/app activity is stored for either 3 or 18 months, depending on your choice, and then deleted. You can also manually delete this data from your history through your Google account. If you wish to prevent location tracking entirely, you need to pause the "Web & App Activity" section in your Google account. Click "Data & Personalization" and then the "Activity Controls" option. Here, you can enable or disable activities.

In your browser, you can also disable, delete, or manage individual cookies. This process varies depending on the browser you use. The following instructions will show you how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Clear, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies
