Data Protection

Privacy Policy of Josef Gartner GmbH

Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Please find detailed information on how we treat your data below.


1. Access Data and Hosting

You can visit our websites without providing us with information about your identity. Whenever a website is accessed, the web server automatically retains only a server log file which contains, for ex., the name of the requested file, your IP address, the access date and time, the data volume transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the retrieval.

Such access data will exclusively be evaluated to ensure trouble-free operation of the website and to improve our offering. According to s. 1 of point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, this serves to safeguard our prevailing legitimate interests in displaying our offering correctly as part of balancing interests. All access data will be erased seven days after the end of your website visit.

2. Data Collection and Use for Contract Implementation and Opening of a Customer Account
We collect personal data where you voluntary communicate it to us as part of your order or when contacting us (e.g. by contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, since we mandatorily need the data in such cases to implement the contract or to process your contact request; you will not be able to complete the order or to send the contact request without providing it. The nature of the collected data can be seen from the respective input forms. According to s. 1 of point (b) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, we use the data communicated by you to implement the contract and to process your requests. Once the entire contract has been implemented, your data will be restricted for further processing and erased after the end of the retention periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have given your explicit consent to any further use of your data or we reserve any further use of the data that is legally admissible and about which we inform you in this policy.

Cookies are small text files which will be automatically retained on your terminal. Some of the cookies used by us will be erased again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (session cookies).
