This Privacy Policy is based on the information and sample texts of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (www.wko.at).

GOAL OF THE DATA PROTECTION POLICY

We respect your privacy and will protect your personal information.  Therefore, we process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (DSGVO, TKG 2003).  In this privacy policy you will get informed about the most important aspects of data processing within our website.

 

CONTACTING US

If you contact us via the form on our website or by e-mail, your specified data will be stored in order to be able to process the request and in case of any follow-up questions. This information will of course not be shared without your explicit consent.

 

STORAGE AND USE OF DATA

We would like to point out, that for the purpose of simplifying the registration process for our trainings the IP data of the subscriber is stored within the scope of cookies. Name, company, address, job title, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card number (if payment is made via credit card) are registered as well.

The data provided by you are required to fulfil the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures. Without this data, we cannot conclude the contract with you. A transfer of data to third parties does not take place, with the exception of the transmission of the credit card data to the processing bank / payment service provider for the purpose of debiting the purchase price, as well as to our tax advisor to fulfil our tax obligations.

After cancelling the registration process, the data stored with us will be deleted. In the case of a contract, all data from the contractual relationship are stored until the expiry of the tax retention period (7 years). In the case of an active business relationship, the data might be stored longer than that.

Participant contact information (mail address, email, telephone, mobile or fax) may be used by HOT Engineering GmbH to provide course participants with updated information related to training courses or to inform (potential) participants regarding future training offers.

HOT Engineering GmbH reserves the right to film course sessions and take photos of course participants. Furthermore, HOT Engineering GmbH reserves the right to use, edit or alter these photos and videos for internal and external publication online (e-mails, newsletters, social media platforms, websites of HOT Engineering GmbH and its affiliated companies, intranet, marketing presentations) and offline (company brochures, sales and/or product brochures, training guides and brochures, exhibition and trade fair appearances, marketing presentations, company profiles).

Data processing takes place on the basis of the statutory provisions of § 96 (3) TKG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit a (consent) and / or lit b (necessary for fulfillment of the contract) of the GDPR.

WEB-ANALYSIS

Our website uses features of the web analytics service Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), located in the United States.

You can prevent this by setting up your browser so that no cookies are stored.

We have concluded a corresponding data processing contract with the provider.

However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the Websites, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting in your browser. We point out, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all features of our website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link :
