Protection of Your Data is Important to Us
Cyrus Models, Wollzeile 31, 1010 Vienna
The website operator takes your privacy very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations.
Please note that data transmission over the Internet can inherently have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection against access by third parties is not feasible.
The website operator or page provider collects data about access to the site and stores it as “server log files.” The following data is logged:
- Visited website
- Time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you accessed the site
- Used browser
- Operating system used
- Used IP address
The collected data is used for statistical analysis and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to check the server log files subsequently if concrete indications point to unlawful use.
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device by your browser. They do not cause any harm.
If you do not wish this, you can set up your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and allow this only in individual cases.
Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website.
Handling of Personal Data
The website operator collects, uses, and only discloses your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the data collection.
All information that serves to identify your person and can be traced back to you – such as your name, email address, and phone number – is considered personal data.
User Rights: Information, Correction, and Deletion
As a user, you can request free information about which personal data about you has been stored. Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g., data retention), you have the right to correct incorrect data and to block or delete your personal data.
Handling of Contact Data
If you contact the website operator through the provided contact options, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your inquiry. Without your consent, this data will not be disclosed to third parties.
Use of Facebook Social Plugins
We use social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, based on our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our online offering within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO). The plugins can display interaction elements or content (e.g., videos, graphics, or text posts) and are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile, the terms “like,” “like,” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin.” The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby provides a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
When a user calls up a function of this online offering that contains such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s device and integrated into the online offering. User profiles can be created from the processed data. We have no influence on the scope of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and inform the users according to our knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offering. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, by pressing the Like button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from their device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about them via this online offering and link it to their stored member data at Facebook, they must log out of Facebook before using our online offering and delete their cookies. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or on the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform-independent, i.e., they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
Data Protection Provisions for the Use of YouTube
The controller has integrated components of YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to freely set video clips and other users to view, rate, and comment on them for free. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, so that both complete films and television programs, but also music videos, trailers, or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. The YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes with the call-up to a subpage that contains a YouTube video, which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits. These pieces of information are collected by
