Thank you very much for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us, and for this reason, we would like to give you detailed information about the way we manage your data. We can assure you that all your personal data will be treated confidentially.

We will manage your data entirely on the basis of statutory provisions, i.e. the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the 2003 Austrian Telecommunications Act (TKG). Nevertheless, please bear in mind that data transmission on the internet can always involve security gaps and that it is impossible to provide full-scale protection against third-party access.

We should be grateful if you would note the following information about data protection on our website:

The use of www.aht.at (hereinafter: “website” for short) and all its pages is generally possible without providing any personal data. The owner and operator of the website is AHT Cooling Systems GmbH (hereinafter: “AHT” for short). You will find all contact information and further details in the Legal Notice section.

Access details

The website operator or provider collects data about access to the website and saves them as “server log files”. The following data are logged in this way:

  • Website visited
  • Time of accessing the website
  • Volume of data sent (in bytes)
  • Source, i.e. reference to the site from which you accessed the website
  • Your browser
  • Your operating system
  • Your IP address

The data collected in this way are used solely for statistical analysis purposes and to improve the website. The server log files will only be checked at a later stage if there is specific evidence of unlawful use.

Use of personal data

If you contact us through a form on the website or by email, the data you provide will be stored by us for six months for the purpose of processing your enquiry and so that we can deal with any follow-up requests that might occur. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

“Personal data” are any details that help identify a person or at least make them identifiable, such as your name, email address and phone number.

Cookies

When you visit our website, your browser will save data to your computer in the form of cookies. A cookie is a small file of numbers and letters, downloaded to a device (e.g. a computer or smartphone) when you visit certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognise a user’s device and help the website to remember information about the user’s preferences. This means that you do not need to re-enter your preferences every time you access that website. However, the files cannot be used to trace any specific person. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of our website.

There are many different types of cookies. Our website uses the following types:

  • Session cookies: These are temporary cookies which only exist for as long as you access the website or until you close your browser after accessing our website. These cookies help our website to remember what you entered on the previous page, so that you do not need to re-enter that information.
  • Tracking cookies: These are used to deliver a statistical analysis of the use of the website. We use Google Analytics for tracking purposes. If you want to find out exactly how Google uses cookies, we suggest that you go to the following website where the relevant information is continually updated: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/cookies/

By default, most browsers are configured so that they accept cookies automatically. We do not use cookies to collect personal information which might identify you. However, if you still want to restrict or block the cookies set by this website or if you want to delete cookies that have already been created, you can do so through your browser settings. To find out more, please consult the help function of your browser or your mobile phone manual. Furthermore, you also have the option of deleting cookies stored on your hard drive, and you can do so at any time. If you disable cookies, you may find that you can only use this website to a limited extent.

Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

This website uses Google Analytics, a web service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), to analyse site usage by users. Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files saved to your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and is then stored there.

Our website is subject to IP anonymisation. Your IP address will be truncated and thus anonymised by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. This eliminates any personal reference to your IP address. As part of the contract data agreement concluded between the website operators and Google Inc., Google uses the information collected to evaluate the use of the website as well as website activity and to provide services related to internet use. Google may also pass this information on to third parties in cases where this is required by law or where third parties process those data at the request of Google.

However, according to Google’s own undertaking, Google will not link your IP address with other Google data. You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all the functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. However, this activation does not prevent information from being sent to AHT. Further details of the disabling option provided by Google and how to set this option can be found at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

By using our Website, you expressly agree to the use of Google Analytics and the use of your data as described in this section. Further details on the use of data by Google Inc. can be found here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en

Rights of the user: access to data, correction and deletion

Upon application, it usually takes a month for you to receive free information of the names and contact details of the controllers within AHT who store your personal data, the purpose for which your data are used, the legal basis on which they are processed, the recipients or categories of recipients of your data and any intention to send personal data to a third country or an international organisation. Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to store data (such as telecommunications data retention, for example), you have a right to have inaccurate data corrected and your personal data blocked or erased. You can also object to this Privacy Policy.
