DATA PRIVACY STATEMENT
Thank you for your interest in our online presence. Protecting your personal data is very important to us. We would therefore like to take a moment to let you know how our company handles data privacy. Of course, we observe all the data privacy provisions under Austrian law.
Object of data privacy
The object of data privacy is personal data. Such data covers individual details about the personal or material circumstances of a determined or determinable natural person. This includes, for example, details such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number, and it may also involve usage data such as your IP address.
Scope of data collection and storage
Generally speaking, it is not necessary to provide us with your personal data in order to use our website. However, we may need your personal data in order to actually provide our services. This is particularly the case if we send you requested information or goods you have ordered, when you download software and documentation as well as in responding to individual inquiries.
When you ask us to provide a service or ship goods via our website, we collect and store your personal data, in principle, only to the extent necessary to provide the service or carry out the shipment. In order for us to do this, it may be necessary to forward your personal data to companies that we use to provide the service or fulfill the contract. Such companies include freight forwarders and other service providers. After we have finished processing your request, your personal data will be stored up to the end of retention periods required by all applicable laws.
If you have indicated your name and e-mail address as well as any other personal data on our contact form, we use your data to process your inquiry as well as for our own promotional purposes unless you expressly object to such use. To express your objection, simply send an ordinary e-mail to Info@ViCOS.at, making sure that the e-mail address you entered on our contact form is the unique sender address of your e-mail.
Use of data for a specific purpose
We follow the principle of using data for a particular purpose and we collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you submitted the data to us. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent, unless such disclosure is necessary to render services or send goods.
We transfer data to authorized government institutions and agencies only within the terms of our statutory duty of disclosure or if we are obligated to provide information by a court decision.
We take in-house data privacy very seriously. Our employees and the subcontractors we hire are obligated to maintain confidentiality and to observe the legal data privacy provisions.
Collecting and storing usage data
We collect and store usage data, such as the date and time of your visit to our website page, the page from which you accessed our site and similar information, only for statistical purposes in order to optimize our website and to make our web content even more attractive. This information is rendered anonymous, and you are not identified personally as the user of our website. If necessary, user profiles are created with a pseudonym. Once again, there is no connection between you as the natural person behind the pseudonym and the usage data we have collected.
Notification and revocation right
We will provide you with information about your stored personal information at any time and free of charge, and there is no need to state the reason. You may withdraw permission for us to continue using the personal data we have collected from you at any time. Or you may instruct us to correct or delete this data, provided that we are permitted to do so under the law. To do this, send a fax or e-mail to the contact address indicated on the Company Information page.
