2. Types of Per­son­al Data Processed (Data Cat­e­gories)

We col­lect and process the fol­low­ing data when­ev­er you vis­it the web­site:

- date and time of access to the web­site
IP address
— domain name
— data vol­ume trans­mit­ted
— your web brows­er ver­sion
— data about the web­site (URL) you vis­it­ed before access­ing the web­site
— loca­tion data
— oper­at­ing sys­tem

Any fur­ther per­son­al data will only be col­lect­ed and processed if you pro­vide us with this data vol­un­tar­i­ly, e.g. by using var­i­ous ser­vices of the web­site (inquiries or sign­ing up to the web­shop, sub­scrib­ing to the newslet­ter etc.).

3. Cook­ies

The web­site uses cook­ies to dis­tin­guish you from oth­er users of our web­site and to enable you to be rec­og­nized again. Cook­ies are small text files that are cached on your brows­er or on your computer’s hard dri­ve when­ev­er you vis­it our web­site. Cook­ies essen­tial­ly col­lect infor­ma­tion to improve the web­site and to offer users addi­tion­al func­tions on a web­site (e.g. to enable the user to con­tin­ue to use the web­site from where they last left it, to store the user’s pref­er­ences and set­tings if they have recent­ly vis­it­ed the web­site, facil­i­tate nav­i­ga­tion on the web­site etc.). Cook­ies can­not access, read or mod­i­fy any oth­er data on your com­put­er.

Most of the cook­ies on this web­site are ‘ses­sion cook­ies’ (tem­po­rary cook­ies), which are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed as soon as you leave the web­site. Per­ma­nent cook­ies, on the oth­er hand, remain stored on your com­put­er until they are delet­ed man­u­al­ly in your brows­er. Our com­pa­ny uses these per­ma­nent cook­ies to rec­og­nize your brows­er the next time you vis­it the web­site.

You have a vari­ety of options for man­ag­ing cook­ies. For this pur­pose, you can select your brows­er set­tings in such a way that you will be noti­fied when­ev­er a web­site wants to store cook­ies. You are fur­ther able to block or delete cook­ies if these have already been stored on your com­put­er. For more infor­ma­tion on these man­age­ment options, please see the man­u­al or the “Help” func­tion in your brows­er.

Please note that you can­not enjoy the full func­tion­al­i­ty of our web­site with­out the aid of cook­ies. Block­ing or delet­ing cook­ies may there­fore affect your options for using the web­site.

4. Google Ana­lyt­ics

This web­site uses Google Ana­lyt­ics, a web analy­sis ser­vice pro­vid­ed by Google Inc., 1600
Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA (here­inafter referred to as “Google”). Google Ana­lyt­ics uses ‘cook­ies’, text files which are stored on your com­put­er and which allow your use of the web­site to be ana­lyzed. Our com­pa­ny process­es your data on the basis of our over­rid­ing legit­i­mate inter­est in a cost-effec­tive man­ner to pro­duce easy-to-use sta­tis­tics on web­site access (Art. 6(1)f GDPR).

The infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie about your use of our web­site (includ­ing your IP address and the URLs of the accessed web­sites) is gen­er­al­ly trans­mit­ted to Google’s serv­er in the US and stored there. Our com­pa­ny does not store any of your data that is col­lect­ed in con­nec­tion with Google Ana­lyt­ics.

Our web­site uses the option of IP anonymiza­tion offered by Google Ana­lyt­ics, so that your IP address is truncated/anonymized by Google as soon as Google receives your IP address. Google will use this infor­ma­tion on our behalf to eval­u­ate your use of the web­site in order to com­pile reports about web­site activ­i­ties and to pro­vide us with fur­ther ser­vices asso­ci­at­ed with the use of the web­site and the Inter­net. The IP address that is trans­mit­ted by your brows­er as part of Google Ana­lyt­ics is not com­bined with any oth­er data.

As already out­lined under Point 4, you can pre­vent cook­ies from being stored by means of the cor­re­spond­ing set­ting in your brows­er soft­ware, which may result in you not being able to use all the func­tions of our web­site under cer­tain cir­cum­stances.

You can fur­ther pre­vent Google from col­lect­ing your data in con­nec­tion with Google Ana­lyt­ics by down­load­ing and installing the brows­er plu­g­in under the fol­low­ing link (http:tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). You can find Google’s pri­va­cy state­ment and fur­ther infor­ma­tion about Google’s terms of use at https://www.google.at/intl/at/policies and http:www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html.

5. Pur­pose of Data Pro­cess­ing

Our com­pa­ny process­es per­son­al data relat­ing to you for the fol­low­ing pur­pos­es:

— to make the web­site avail­able and improve/further devel­op our company’s Inter­net pres­ence
— to rec­og­nize, counter and inves­ti­gate attacks on the web­site
— to respond to inquiries.

6. Legal Basis for Data Pro­cess­ing

Our over­rid­ing legit­i­mate inter­est (Art. 6(1)f GDPR) con­sti­tutes the legal basis for pro­cess­ing your per­son­al data. This inter­est con­sists of achiev­ing the pur­pos­es of data pro­cess­ing referred to under Point 5.

7. Trans­mis­sion of Per­son­al Data

Your per­son­al data is trans­mit­ted to the fol­low­ing recip­i­ents for the pur­pos­es referred to under
Point 5.

- IT and back-office ser­vice providers
— group com­pa­nies (you will find an up-to-date list of all group com­pa­nies at https://egston.com/company-locations/?lang=en)
— third par­ties, pro­vid­ed this is required in order for us to ful­fill our con­trac­tu­al oblig­a­tions (e.g. logis­tics com­pa­nies etc.) or legal requirements5

In all cas­es, our com­pa­ny ensures that third par­ties only receive per­son­al data to the extent required to ful­fill their orders. Some of the afore­men­tioned recip­i­ents are locat­ed out­side the EU or EEA, and the lev­el of data pri­va­cy in oth­er coun­tries may not cor­re­spond to the lev­el of data pri­va­cy in the EU /EEA. Our com­pa­ny trans­mits your per­son­al data only to those coun­tries where the EU Com­mis­sion has decid­ed that an appro­pri­ate lev­el of data pri­va­cy exists, and we take steps to ensure that all recip­i­ents have a rea­son­able lev­el of data pri­va­cy (in par­tic­u­lar by enter­ing into the stan­dard EU con­trac­tu­al claus­es, 2010/97/EC and/or 2004/915/EC). Final­ly, we can clear­ly state that your per­son­al data will nev­er be sold to third par­ties.

8. Stor­age Peri­od

8.1. The per­son­al data col­lect­ed when you vis­it the web­site is always saved for a peri­od of six months. Data is only stored for a longer term if this is nec­es­sary in order to inves­ti­gate an estab­lished attack on our web­site.

8.2. Per­son­al data which you pro­vide to us as part of your reg­is­tra­tion on our web­site will in any event only be stored and processed for as long as your account exists.

8.3. All per­son­al data that is sub­mit­ted to us in the course of ini­ti­at­ing a busi­ness trans­ac­tion or pro­cess­ing a con­tract will only be retained or processed for the peri­od that is required in order to meet our con­trac­tu­al and/or statu­to­ry oblig­a­tions and to counter any lia­bil­i­ty claims aris­ing from the con­trac­tu­al rela­tion­ship. Our com­pa­ny stores your per­son­al data in any event for as long as the statu­to­ry reten­tion peri­ods (e.g. Aus­tri­an Com­mer­cial Code (7 years), Aus­tri­an Fed­er­al Fis­cal Code etc.) apply, or until the statu­to­ry lim­i­ta­tion peri­ods (e.g. long lim­i­ta­tion peri­od in accor­dance with the Aus­tri­an Civ­il Code (ABGB) (30 years)) have expired.
