Data Privacy

Our website can be used without providing personal data. The following text provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit this website. Personal data is all data with which you can be personally identified. We process the personal data of specific groups of data subjects exclusively in accordance with the provisions of the Austrian Protection Amendment Act and the General Data Protection Regulation. Data is deemed personal if it can be unambiguously assigned to a specific natural person. The general regulations on the website as well as regulations regarding various groups of data subjects provide you with information on the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by

FLUX GmbH
Hans Steininger Gasse 16
Braunau am Inn, 5280
AUSTRIA

Since the company does not process data of authorities or public bodies, and its core activity does not consist in carrying out processing operations which require regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects, nor in the extensive processing of special categories of data pursuant to articles 9 and 10 of the General Data Protection Regulation, no data protection officer has been appointed.
In this data protection statement, we wish to inform you of the most important aspects of personal data processing of our website and of other processing activities in connection with external persons.

1. Data Collection on this Website

How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data will be collected when you communicate it to us. E.g. data that you enter in our contact form. Other data is collected automatically or with your consent by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is primarily technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter this website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure that the website is provided without errors. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior.
What rights do you have regarding to your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the correction or deletion of this data. If you have given your consent to data processing, you can revoke this consent at any time for the future. You also have the right, under certain circumstances, to request the processing of your personal data to be restricted. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

You can contact us at any time if you have any further questions on the subject of data protection.
Analysis tools and third-party tools
When you visit this website, your surfing behavior can be statistically evaluated. This is mainly done with so-called analysis programs.

2. Hosting GoDaddy

We host our website on GoDaddy.
www.godaddy.com is used on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in our website being displayed as reliably as possible. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time. We have concluded an order processing contract with GoDaddy. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that GoDaddy processes the personal data of our website visitors only in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

3. General Information and Mandatory Information, Data Protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Duration of storage
Unless a specific storage period has been specified in this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for data processing no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. tax or commercial law retention periods); in the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons have ceased to exist.
Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries
Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data can be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that in these countries no level of data protection comparable to that of the EU can be guaranteed. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) will process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent that you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

If the data processing is based on art. 6 abs. 1 lit. E or f gdpr, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which a processing is based can be found in this data privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your concerned personal data unless we can prove comprehensive grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedom objection according to article 21 (1) gdpr).

If your personal data is processed for direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for such advertising purposes; this also applies to profiling to the extent related to such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct advertising purposes (objection according to art. 21 (2) gdpr).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, those affected have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “ http://“ to “ https://“ and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data at any time. You can contact us at any time if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  1. If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
  2. If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
  3. If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of being deleted.
  4. If you have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, your interests and ours must be weighed up. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be used with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State are processed.

4. Data Collection on this Website Contact Form

We do not pass on this data without your consent. This data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this was queried.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

This data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this was queried. The data you sent to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

5. Plugins and Tools

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. „(„Google“). Google Analytics also uses cookies. The information generated by Google cookies about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to the use of the website and the internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data collected about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes described above.

Please note that our website uses Google Analytics with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“ to improve data protection. In this case, Google will first shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA before being shortened there. This therefore precludes personal identification when analyzing the use of our website. You can refuse the use of Google Analytics cookies by extending your browser, which allows you to exercise your right to object to the proactive collection, processing and use of data by Google Analytics. To do this, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. This prevents Google Analytics from storing information about websites you have visited.
Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display text and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to the Google servers. This gives Google knowledge that this website was accessed via your IP address. Google WebFonts are used on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the uniform presentation of the typeface on his website. If a corresponding consent was requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

You can find more information about Google Web Fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s data protection declaration: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de .

LinkedIn Insight Tag

This website uses the LinkedIn Insight Tag, a web analysis service of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company (hereinafter referred to as „LinkedIn“), Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, on the legal basis of pursuing our overriding legitimate interests (website usage analysis) pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 lit. f of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Furthermore, this information allows us to display relevant offers and recommendations tailored to your interests after you have consulted our website.

LinkedIn may also transfer this information to third parties to the extent that this is required by law or in the case that third parties process this data on behalf of LinkedIn.

Please refer to LinkedIn’s privacy policy for further information on the collection and use of data and on your options and rights with respect to the protection of your privacy. Once you have logged in to LinkedIn, you can disable the collection of data at any time. LinkedIn is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus guarantees compliance with European data protection law.

You can disable the collection of your user data on our website by activating the option „do not track“ in your web browser. Our website recognizes the „do not track“ signal that your web browser then transmits to all websites.
