WHICH TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES ARE USED ON OUR WEBSITES?
1) SERVER LOG FILES
Together with our web hosting or webspace service provider “EDIS GmbH,” whose server location is in Austria, we collect data every time our websites are accessed. This access data includes the name of the accessed website, the date and time of access, the volume of data transferred, notifications of successful access, browser type and version, operating system, the referrer-URL and the requested provider. All of these data are only used for statistical analysis, for purposes of security, operation and for the optimisation of websites. We reserve the right to review the logged data at any point if there is an evidence-based, justified suspicion of unlawful use.
2) GOOGLE ANALYTICS AND GOOGLE REMARKETING
Our websites use Google Analytics, the remarketing technology and the “Similar Target Groups” feature of Google Inc. and are based in the EU-US Privacy Shield C(2016) 4176.
Your IP address is recorded but rendered anonymous right away and only translated into an approximate location. Data is processed based on the legal provisions of Art. 96, para 3 of the Telecommunications Act (TKG) and Art. 6, para. 1 lit a and/or f of the GDPR.

Google Ads Settings (AdWords and Youtube)
By using our websites, you express your consent to the processing of data collected by Google Inc. or Facebook Inc. about you within the context described above.
You can object to the processing of your data within the scope of Google Inc. and Facebook Inc. services and features at any time to prevent your visits to our websites from being recorded in the future. To do this, you must activate “opt-out-cookies”:

In “Your Online Choices” (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/), opt-out cookies can be set by the participating marketing companies.
On our website ,we use the social plugins of Pinterest Inc. (651 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA [“Pinterest”]). When you access a site that uses one of these plugins, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Pinterest. In doing so, the plugin passes on protocol data to the servers of Pinterest located in the USA. This protocol data may include your IP address, the address of the visited websites, which may also have Pinterest functions, the kind of browser and its settings, time and date of the request, how you use Pinterest as well as cookies.
4) SOCIAL SHARING, EMBEDDED FONTS AND VIDEOS
Our PREFARENZEN website does not use social sharing plugins for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest or Google+. Therefore, there are no buttons to share or like articles or content that would otherwise be visibly presented through the respective corporation’s icons. There are only icons in the footer of the website that open up the respective PREFA channels on the platforms Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest when you click on them. Clicking on the respective provider’s button establishes a direct connection to their server.
Moreover, fonts are used on the PREFARENZEN website, so-called Adobe Fonts, which only serve the purpose of an error-free and consciously designed presentation of contents.
In addition, some of our websites contain embedded videos which are hosted by the external streaming service provider Youtube. Data is sent to the provider at the latest when you play such a video.
