In the Contact section of our website you have the opportunity to send us an email using our general email address. Enquiries made by you will be processed using the data entered by you, from which follow the purpose of the processing as well as any time limit for erasure and the legal basis of the processing. A valid email address must be entered for the enquiry to be processed.

Should you have queries of any kind, we offer you the option to contact us using a form provided on our website.

Data processing for the purpose of contacting us takes place in accordance with point 1 (a) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR on the basis of your freely given consent.

 

The personal data collected by us when you use the contact form will be erased automatically once your enquiry has been completely resolved.

Cookies

 

Cookies are very small text files necessary for trouble-free access to web pages. These cookies are generated by the website being accessed, such as our website, and sent to the device accessing the site, such as your PC, laptop or smartphone, etc. They contain information such as what font and font size your web browser should use in displaying our website. They are absolutely not computer viruses or other malware! They also do not allow drawing any conclusions about individual persons or their identity.

 

Furthermore, we also use cookies to make our website more user-friendly and to critically examine ourselves. To that end, cookies can identify a visitor who has accessed our website before as regards their web browser. However, these cookies are erased after a pre-determined period of time.

 

Another kind of cookies, so-called session cookies, is used during a website visit for logging which pages of our website have already been visited in any one ‘web session’. This also is for making our website more user-friendly. Cookies of this kind are erased immediately on leaving our website.

 

So-called temporary cookies are used to avoid having to re-enter settings and inputs each time you revisit our website. For these reasons of user-friendliness, they must be stored on the device of our website visitor for a certain period of time.

 

As a website operator, our organisation and external third parties have a plausible basis for collecting data by using cookies in the pursuit of our legitimate interests in accordance with point (f) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR. However, visitors to our website can modify the settings of their web browsers either to reject all cookies or to ask for permission before every individual cookie is set. Rejecting all cookies can lead to our website not being displayed correctly.

 

Cookie Consent by Silktide

 

On our website we use the ‘Cookie Consent’ application by the company Silktide (Silktide Ltd, Brunel Parkway, Pride Park, Derby, DE24 8HR, UK). This is a plugin which can be used for obtaining consent for the use of cookies and/or tracking technologies. In doing so, ‘Cookie Consent’ itself does not collect any personal data. You can find details about this tool at https://silktide.com/, privacy policy: https://silktide.com/privacy-policy/

 

 

 

Website analytics tools

 

Google Analytics

 

We use Google Analytics to enhance the design of our website for the purpose of continuous optimisation and to improve online marketing. This is an analytics service provided by the well-known internet search engine company Google Inc., based at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To analyse our website, Google Analytics produces pseudonymised user profiles and cookies storing the following information on the use of our website: Browser type and version, operating system used, internet address of the previously visited web page, IP address of the device used for access, and time of the server request. In no case, however, are these data combined with your IP address; additionally, the IP address is anonymised. This prevents the data from being attributed to the IP address. This is also known as IP masking. You can find further details at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052

 

The anonymised data are transmitted to the US, stored there and analysed for the purposes stated above. Where legal provisions are in force and further processors are involved, the data are then also passed on to third parties.

 

You can prevent your personal data from being collected by Google Analytics by setting a so-called OPT-OUT cookie which will prevent data collection when you visit our website in the future. You can find and download the browser plugin required for this at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

 

Regarding this, it is important to know that: An OPT-OUT cookie only applies to one browser, a specific website, and the specific device on which it has been installed. If you also use other devices, a different browser or if you delete all cookies, the OPT-OUT cookie will have to be set again. If, on the other hand, you do not allow the setting of any cookies, the full usability of our website cannot be guaranteed. Any data collected before the entry into force of the GDPR have been erased.

 

 

 

Links to social media services

 

Our website does not use links to social media services such as Instagram, Twitter or Facebook!

 

 

 

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

 

In order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing way across different browsers, our website uses script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser cache to avoid having to load them repeatedly. If a browser does not support Google Web Fonts or blocks access, the content will be displayed in a standard font.

 

Accessing script libraries and font libraries automatically creates a connection to the library’s provider. This means it is theoretically possible for the providers of such libraries to collect data – though it is currently still unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes they do so.

 

The privacy policy of the library provider Google can be found at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

 

 

 

Google AdWords

 

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website through an ad placed by Google, Google AdWords will set a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is set if a user clicks on an AdWords ad placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and do not serve the purpose of personal identification. If a user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we ourselves can see that the user has clicked on the ad and was forwarded to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. It is thus not possible to track cookies through the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers receive information on the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and have been forwarded to a web page with a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, receive any information which can be used for the personal identification of users.

 

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the setting of the cookie required for this – e.g., by means of the browser setting generally deactivating the automatic setting of cookies, or by configuring your browser to that cookies from the domain ‘googleadservices.com’ are blocked.

 

Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies for as long as you do not wish analytics data to be recorded. If you have deleted all cookies from your browser, you will have to set the relevant opt-out cookie again.

 

 

 

Rights of data subjects

 

In what follows, we list all the rights you have in relation to protecting your personal data:

 

 

Right of access according to Art. 15 of the GDPR

 

You have the right to obtain information concerning: the purposes of the processing; the categories of personal data concerned; the recipients or categories of recipient to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed; the envisaged period for which the personal data will be or have been stored and/or the criteria used to determine that period; the right to request rectification and erasure of personal data concerning you or restriction of processing and/or to object to such processing; the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority; any available information as to the source of the data, where the data have not been collected from you; and the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and the logic and significance involved therein.

 

 

Right to rectification according to Art. 16 of the GDPR

 

You have the right to have inaccurate data concerning you rectified without undue delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you can also request to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

 

 

Right to erasure according to Art. 17 of the GDPR

 

You have the right to obtain from us the erasure of your personal data held by us without undue delay, where such erasure does not conflict with: the right of freedom of expression and information; compliance with a legal obligation; safeguarding public interest; or the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

 

 

Right to restriction of processing according to Art. 18 of the GDPR

 

You have the right to restriction of processing where: the accuracy of the personal data is contested; the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead; the data are no longer needed for the purposes of the processing but are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or you have exercised your right to object to processing. Furthermore, you must be informed by us before such a restriction is lifted.

 

 

Notification obligation according to Art. 19 of the GDPR

 

You have the right to be notified of any rectification, erasure or restriction of processing. Where this involves disproportionate effort, we will inform you of this and, as appropriate, refrain from notifying you and/or charge you for this service in line with the expenses incurred.

 

 

Right to data portability according to Art. 20 of the GDPR

 

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a machine-readable, structured and commonly used format and/or to have these data transmitted to another controller without hindrance, if desired.

 

 

Right to object according to Art. 21 of the GDPR

 

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your situation, at any time to the processing of your personal data if this conflicts with compliance with points (a)-(f) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR.

If you wish to exercise your right to object, please send an email to info@steelwall.eu.

 

 

Right not to be subject to purely automated individual decision-making, including profiling, according to Art. 22 of the GDPR

 

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automatic processing, including profiling, unless this is necessary for the performance of, or entering into, a contract; or this is authorised by Union or Member State law to which we are subject; or you have given your explicit consent.

At present we do not use any purely automated individual decision-making, including profiling.

 

 

Restrictions according to Art. 23 of the GDPR

 

Pursuant to Art. 23 of the GDPR, Union or Member State law may restrict the erasure by way of a legislative measure when such a restriction respects the essence of the fundamental rights and freedoms, is a necessary and proportionate measure and serves (at least) one of the purposes listed in Art. 23.

 

 

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

 

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your data infringes data protection law or that your data protection rights have otherwise been infringed, you can lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the Datenschutzbehörde [Data Protection Authority].

 

 

 

Transfer of data

 

In general, we will not transfer anyone’s data without authorisation, consent or legal grounds. However, in the following cases, a transfer of data will be made if:

 

- You have given us your explicit consent for one or more purposes (point (a) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR);

- This is necessary for the performance of contracts or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract, e.g. in the context of enquiries (point (b) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR);

- This is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation (point (c) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR);

- Your vital interests or those of another person are to be protected, e.g. when administering first aid (point (d) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR); or

- This is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the operator or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of your data, in particular where the data subject is a child (point (f) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR).

 

 

 

Website data security

 

In your communication with our website, we use secure transfer protocols for page views, as can be seen from the letters https at the start of our web address, which stand for ‘Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure’.

 

We make use of further technical and organisational measures to continuously improve the security of our website; however, this also depends on technological progress.
