Data processing takes place on the basis of the legal provisions of Section 96 (3) TKG and Art 6 (1) a (consent) and / or f (legitimate interest) of the GDPR (Austrian DSGVO).
In order to increase data security when transferring forms, we use the service reCAPTCHA from the company Google Inc.

The service includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this, the different data protection regulations of Google Inc. apply.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts and Font Awesome)
In order to present our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as B. Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) and Font Awesome, Inc., (https://fontawesome.com/).
Google web fonts or icons from Font Awesome are transferred to the cache of your browser to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently unclear whether and if so for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.

However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).
