1. Scope of application
This data protection agreement is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator TAC Informationstechnologie GmbH, Schildbach 211, 8230 Hartberg. TAC takes your privacy very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal requirements. Personal data are all data that are personally identifiable to you, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behavior.
Keep in mind that data transmission over the Internet can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection against access by third parties is not possible.
2. Data security
We maintain technical measures to guarantee data security, in particular to protect your personal data from dangers during data transmission and before third parties gain knowledge of it. These are adapted to the current state of the art in each case.
3. Access data/collection of personal data for informational use
The website operator or page provider collects data about access to the page and saves it as “server log files”. When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. when you do not log in, register or otherwise provide us with information, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data that your browser transmits to enable you to visit the website. These are:
IP address used
Date and time at the time of access
Amount of data sent in bytes
Source/reference from which you accessed the page
Browser used (language and version)
Operating system and device used
Internet service provider used
The country the visitor comes from
Age and sex according to transmission
The data collected is used solely for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are any concrete indications of illegal use.
4. Handling of personal data
The website operator only collects, uses and passes on your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data. Personal information is any information that is used to identify you and which can be traced back to you, such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
5. Google Analytics
This website uses the “Google Analytics” service, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) for analysis of website usage by users. The service uses “cookies” – text files which are stored on your terminal. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP address of users within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area will be reduced. This reduction eliminates the personal reference to your IP address. As part of the contract data agreement concluded between the website operators and Google Inc., Google uses the information collected to evaluate the use of the website and website activity and to provide services related to Internet use.
You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
Here you will find further information on data use by Google Inc.: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en
6. Google AdWords
We also use the Google advertising tool “Google-Adwords” to promote our website. In this context we use the analysis service “Conversion-Tracking” of Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”. If you accessed our website via a Google ad, a cookie is stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser stores on your computer. These so-called “conversion cookies” lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve your personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google may recognize that you as a user have clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and have been redirected to our page.
The information collected with the help of the “conversion cookies” is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. These statistics show us the total number of users who clicked on our ad and also which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. However, we or others who advertise via “Google-Adwords” do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
You can prevent the installation of “conversion cookies” by making the appropriate settings in your browser, such as browser settings that generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or specifically only block cookies from the “googleadservices.com” domain.
You can obtain the relevant data protection agreement from Google under the following link: https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your mobile device using the browser. They’re not doing any damage.
If you do not wish this, you can set your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases.
When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be limited.

9. Reference to other websites/integration of third-party services
It may happen that third party content, such as RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, is integrated within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) are aware of the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence on this if the third party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we inform the users about this.
We always ensure that the European General Data Protection Regulation Agreement standard is maintained in order to protect your data effectively.
On our website you will find a link to the following other websites of the following providers: TeamViewer, Wellness Booking
Below are the addresses of the respective providers as well as the URL with their data protection information:

10. Handling of contact data
If you contact the website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. In principle, we reserve the right to pass on your data to our business partners if necessary.
Use of functions of our website
In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. To do so, you will usually have to provide additional personal data that we use to provide the respective service. If additional voluntary information is possible, it is marked accordingly.
Use of the “Contact” function
When you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form, your e-mail address and, if you specify this, your name and your telephone number will be stored by us in order to answer your questions.
With the following information we inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter you agree to the receipt and the described procedures.
Contents of the newsletter
We will only send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter “newsletters”) with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. If the contents of a newsletter are specifically described within the scope of a registration, they are decisive for the consent of the users.
Double-Opt-In and logging
The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can log in with other e-mail addresses.
Subscriptions to 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 login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Also the changes of your data stored with MailChimp are logged.
Use of the “MailChimp” shipping service
The newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or pass them on to third parties.
We trust in the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and thus commits itself to comply with EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process them on our behalf in accordance with their data protection regulations and in particular not to pass them on to third parties. The data protection regulations of MailChimp can be viewed here. https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/
To subscribe to the newsletter, simply enter your e-mail address, title and surname. This information is only used to personalise the newsletter. We only use this information to adapt the contents of the newsletter to the interests of our readers.
Statistical surveys and analyses
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavour, nor that of MailChimp, to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.
Online access and data management
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. At the same time your consents to its dispatch via MailChimp and the statistical analyses expire. A separate cancellation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.
You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
Legal basis Basic Data Protection Ordinance
In accordance with the provisions of the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) valid from 25 May 2018, we inform you that your consents to the sending of e-mail addresses are based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, 7 DSGVO and § 7 para. 2 no. 3 and para. 3 UWG. The use of the shipping service provider MailChimp, carrying out statistical surveys and analyses as well as logging of the registration procedure, are based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We are interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of users.
We would also like to point out that you can object to the future processing of your personal data at any time in accordance with the statutory provisions of Art. 21 DSGVO. The objection may be lodged in particular against processing for direct marketing purposes.
