Data privacy regarding this website
The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. Therefore, vieconsult Vienna Corporate Research and Development GmbH processes your data exclusively on the basis of legal provisions (GDPR, TKG 2003). In this data protection information, we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the scope of our website (pursuant to Art. 13 GDPR). With regard to any terms used, such as “processing”, “data subject” or “controller”, we refer to the definitions in Art. 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
“Data subjects” in the sense of the GDPR are primarily visitors and users of our online services, as well as in some cases employees of vieconsult GmbH. Types of data processed, where applicable: Inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times) and meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses). The purpose of the processing is the provision of the online services (functions, content), the response to contact requests and communication with users, any security measures and the optimisation of our website.
The use of the internet pages of vieconsult Vienna Corporate Research and Development GmbH is possible without any declaration of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services provided by our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary (e.g. contact details such as name, e-mail address, telephone number). If the processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The website of vieconsult Vienna Corporate Research and Development GmbH collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system gets to our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-webpages that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of accessing the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information, which are used for legitimate interests either to optimise our web services or to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, vieconsult Vienna Corporate Research and Development GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyberattack. Therefore, vieconsult Vienna Corporate Research and Development GmbH analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically as well as with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files is stored separately from any personal data submitted by a data subject.
The contact form is only accessible in the German version of this website.
If you contact us via the contact form on this website, the data you enter (name, company name, e-mail, telephone number and your request) will be transmitted to us by e-mail for the purpose of processing your request and used by us in the context of responding. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent and it will only be processed for the purpose of responding.
In order to protect the contact form on our site, we may use the service “reCAPTCHA” of the company Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, in the further referred to as “Google”. By using this service, it is then possible to distinguish whether the given input is of human origin or is misused by automated machine processing.
According to our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behavior of website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and dwell time, cookies, display instructions and scripts, the user’s input behavior and mouse movements in the area of the “reCAPTCHA” checkbox are transmitted to “Google”.
The information gathered in this way is used by Google, for instance, to digitize books and other printed materials as well as to optimize services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g., house number and street name recognition).
The IP address transmitted as part of “reCAPTCHA” is not merged with other data from Google, unless you are logged in to your Google account at the time of using the “reCAPTCHA” plug-in. If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data by “Google” about you and your behavior on our website, you must log out of “Google” before you visit our site or use the reCAPTCHA plug-in.

We use videos on this website, which are a good way to better convey content and make it easier to understand. Since locally hosting videos is not efficient enough, we use the option of external video providers.
We mainly use the provider Vimeo for the integration of videos. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC, headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011. On some of our web pages, we use plugins from the provider Vimeo. When you access the pages of our website that are provided with such a plugin, a connection is established to the Vimeo servers and the plugin is displayed. This transmits to the Vimeo server which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a Vimeo member, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, such as clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding Vimeo cookies. Further information on data processing and information on data protection by Vimeo can be found at vimeo.com/privacy.
We also occasionally embed other videos from external sites. Third-party providers are also used here. For the associated use of data of your browser or terminal device, we refer you to the respective data protection notices of the providers.
We use the so-called LinkedIn Insight Tag on our websites to measure the behaviour of LinkedIn users on our websites. We do this to better understand and further develop our services in a customer-oriented manner. This also enables us to target online advertisements. You have the option to agree to this use or to deactivate it.
LinkedIn is operated by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.
By integrating the LinkedIn Insight Tag, the provider receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website. This information is transmitted by your browser directly to the provider and stored there.
If you do not want LinkedIn to assign the data collected via our website directly to your profile in the respective service, you have the option to deactivate this for your visit. You can also prevent this completely with special add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the script blocker “NoScript” (noscript.net).
We use the so-called Facebook pixel on our website to measure the behaviour of Facebook users on our websites, to thereby better understand and further develop our services in a customer-oriented manner. This also enables us to target advertisements online. You have the option to agree to this use or to deactivate it.
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
It allows us to track the actions of users after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. This allows us to measure the effectiveness of our Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, which means that we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which we inform you about according to our level of knowledge. Facebook can link this data to your Facebook account and use it for its own advertising purposes in accordance with Facebook’s data protection policy. You can enable Facebook and its partners to display advertisements on and outside of Facebook. A cookie is stored on your computer for these purposes.
