4.1.1 Google Maps
Here you can find out which cookies we use:
- ga / Analytics cookie by Google Analytics to differentiate users
- gat / Analysis cookie by Google Analytics for restricting request rates
- gid / Analytics cookie by Google Analytics to differentiate users
- inlinecss-loaded / cookie to speed up the load times of web pages by inlining CSS scripts
- PHPSESSID / The PHPSESSID cookie is native to PHP and is used to establish a user session and to pass state data via a temporary cookie
- hjClosedSurveyInvites / Hotjar cookie that is set once a visitor interacts with a Survey invitation modal pop-up. It is used to ensure that the same invite does not reappear if it has already been shown.
- hjDonePolls / Hotjar cookie that is set once a visitor completes a poll using the Feedback Poll widget. It is used to ensure that the same poll does not reappear if it has already been filled in.
- hjMinimizedPolls / Hotjar cookie that is set once a visitor minimizes a Feedback Poll widget. It is used to ensure that the widget stays minimized when the visitor navigates through your site.
- hjShownFeedbackMessage / Hotjar cookie that is set when a visitor minimizes or completes Incoming Feedback. This is done so that the Incoming Feedback will load as minimized immediately if the visitor navigates to another page where it is set to show.
- hjid / Hotjar cookie that is set when the customer first lands on a page with the Hotjar script. It is used to persist the Hotjar User ID, unique to that site on the browser. This ensures that behavior in subsequent visits to the same site will be attributed to the same user ID.
- hjRecordingLastActivity / This should be found in Session storage (as opposed to cookies). This gets updated when a visitor recording starts and when data is sent through the WebSocket (the visitor performs an action that Hotjar records).
- hjTLDTest / When the Hotjar script executes we try to determine the most generic cookie path we should use, instead of the page hostname. This is done so that cookies can be shared across subdomains (where applicable). To determine this, we try to store the _hjTLDTest cookie for different URL substring alternatives until it fails. After this check, the cookie is removed.
- hjUserAttributesHash / User Attributes sent through the Hotjar Identify API are cached for the duration of the session in order to know when an attribute has changed and needs to be updated.
- hjCachedUserAttributes / This cookie stores User Attributes which are sent through the Hotjar Identify API, whenever the user is not in the sample. These attributes will only be saved if the user interacts with a Hotjar Feedback tool.
- hjLocalStorageTest / This cookie is used to check if the Hotjar Tracking Script can use local storage. If it can, a value of 1 is set in this cookie. The data stored in_hjLocalStorageTest has no expiration time, but it is deleted almost immediately after it is created.
- hjIncludedInSample / This cookie is set to let Hotjar know whether that visitor is included in the sample which is used to generate Funnels. This is a session cookie which is destroyed when the user leaves the site.
- hjAbsoluteSessionInProgress / This cookie is used to detect the first pageview session of a user. This is a True/False flag set by the cookie.

4.2.2 Google Analytics
- the operating system in use,
- referrer-URL (the previously visited website),
- time of the server request,
are usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. The IP address provided by your browser through Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google information. We have also added the code "anonymizeIP" to Google Analytics on this website. This guarantees the masking of your IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the US and be shortened there.
On our behalf, Google will use the information to evaluate your use of this website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet usage to the website operator. You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing your browser settings accordingly.
You can also prevent the transmission of data generated by the cookie (incl. your IP address) to Google and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the future collection of your personal data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
We also reserve the right to use Google Analytics to analyze data from Double-Click and AdWords for statistical purposes. If you do not want this to happen, you can disable it through the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).
For more information about Google Analytics’ privacy, see the Google Analytics Help Center (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).
4.2.3 Social Media
Our website uses social media plugins (e.g., Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, XING, Youtube).
The plugins can usually be identified by the respective social media logos. To ensure data privacy on our website, we only use these plugins together with the so-called "Shariff" solution. This application prevents these plugins from transferring data to the respective provider when visiting our website.
When visiting our website, these buttons are disabled by default. Only when you activate the respective plugin by clicking the corresponding button, a direct connection to the server of the provider is established. Once you activate the plugin, the respective provider receives the information that you have visited our website together with your IP address. After activating the plugin, the respective provider is able to collect data, regardless of whether you interact with the button. If you are simultaneously logged into your respective social media account, the respective provider may assign the visit to our website to your user account. The button will remain active until you disable it or delete your cookies.
You can change your Twitter privacy settings in the account settings at https://twitter.com/account/settings.
Our website uses features of the LinkedIn network. The provider is the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043. Each time you visit a top-level or subpage of our website that has LinkedIn features included, it will connect to LinkedIn servers. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our website together with your IP address. If you click LinkedIn's "Recommend Button" while logged in to LinkedIn, LinkedIn will be able to associate your visit to our website with your LinkedIn user account. We point out that we are not aware of the extent of the transmitted data and their use by LinkedIn.

An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When visiting our website, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook "Like" button while logged in to your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our website to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate the visit of our website with your user account. We point out that we are not aware of the content of the transmitted data and their use by Facebook. If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to our website with your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.

We use the so-called double opt-in process. This means that after registering, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address provided at the time of registration, asking you to confirm that you wish to receive information on products and services by e-mail. If you do not confirm your registration within 72 hours, your information will be locked and automatically deleted after one month. We store your given personal data, the time of registration and of confirmation. The purpose of the process is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data.

5 Transmission and disclosure of data and data transfer
In general, we only use your personal data within the Frauscher Group. The companies belonging to the Frauscher Group can be found on our website: https://www.frauscher.com/en/Markets/Locations%20-%20Partners.
Within the legal provisions, we may transfer personal data to courts, authorities or law firms or other business partners (such as shipping or logistics partners for the execution and processing of orders).
If and as far as we engage third parties for the execution of contracts (e.g., logistics service providers), personal data will only be provided to that extent which is absolutely necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of the data processing ("processing on behalf of a controller (processor)", Article 28 GDPR), we contractually obligate the processor to use personal data only in accordance with data protection laws and ensuring the protection of the data subject's rights.
It is possible that recipients are located in countries outside the European Union ("Third Countries"), where the applicable law does not guarantee the same level of data protection as in your home country. In that case, a transmission will only take place if the Third Country has an adequacy decision of the European Commission, or appropriate guarantees have been agreed with the processor (e.g. EU standard contractual clauses have been concluded), the processor participates in an approved certification system (e.g. EU-US Privacy Shield), or binding internal data protection regulations according to Article 47 GDPR or an exemption according to Article 49 GDPR exists.
Any transfer of your personal data to third parties beyond the extent already described will only take place if this is necessary for the processing of your request, for the fulfillment of the contract or, more generally, for fulfilling our obligations or due to mandatory legal/regulatory requirements. For other purposes, your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.
6 Legal Basis and Storage Periods
Data processing takes place on the legal basis of point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR (consent) and / or point (b) (contract initiation / performance) and / or point (f) (legitimate interest).
The processed personal data are used for statistical evaluations as well as for the purpose of operation, safety, and optimization of this website (legitimate interest). Any further use of your personal data (e.g., shipping of product and service information) will only take place with your consent.
As far as no explicit storage period is specified when collecting your personal data (e.g. in the context of a declaration of consent), your personal data will be deleted (or anonymized), to the extent they are no longer required and provided that deletion or anonymization does not contradict any statutory storage requirements(e.g. trade and/or tax-related retention obligations), warranty obligation and/or security-related obligation.
7 How we protect your data
All personal data collected by us will be protected by appropriate technical and organizational measures, taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing and the likelihood and severity of the risk to individuals' rights and freedoms within the meaning of Article 32 GDPR against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons or misuse. For example, your personal data is stored in a secure operating environment, not open to the public. As a principle your personal data is encrypted during transmission by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This means that an approved encryption method is used for the communication between your terminal and the Frauscher servers or, if required, to the assigned processor, provided that your browser supports SSL.
Please note that we do not assume any liability for the disclosure of information due to errors in data transmission not caused by us or not attributable to us and / or due to unauthorized access by third parties.
All our employees and all third parties involved in the processing of data are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection rules and corresponding laws and the confidential handling of personal data.
8 Your Rights
In general, you have the right to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability and objection regarding your stored personal data. If the processing of your data takes place on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke the consent at any time, though without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation. If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates data protection laws or otherwise your data protection rights have been violated in any way, we ask you to contact us by using the contact details below. If clarification is not possible, you can file a complaint to the supervisory authority. In Austria the data protection authority (“Datenschutzbehörde”) is responsible.
