8. Collection and storage of usage data on the website

When accessing our website, the following electronic communication metadata is stored: IP address, date and time of access, name of file accessed, sub-page and anonymous user ID, city, region and country of the user, user’s operating system, browser of the user, browser version of the user, user ‘s interactions on the website, pages visited by the user, duration of the session and number of users, date of first visit to the website, date and time of each interaction of the user, duration of the website, duration of requests of the user, user queries, website exception, date and time, and duration of exception errors. For statistical purposes data can be evaluated anonymously. This data will be treated as strictly confidential and will not be disclosed outside the ipcenter.at system or made accessible to third parties, unless this is necessary to fulfill legal or contractual obligations or to care for legitimate interests of ipcenter.at GmbH.

We delete or anonymize your data as soon as it is no longer needed for the transmission of a communication. If the processing of electronically communicated data is for billing purposes, we retain the communications data for the duration of the statute of limitations within which the invoice may be lawfully challenged or the claim for payment made. The statute of limitations for contesting the validity of a contract is of three years from the conclusion of the contract (see § 1487 ABGB) also warranty claims for goods or services in a commercial transaction must be raised within three years (see § 1486 para 1 Z 1 ABGB). We therefore store these electronic communications for a period of three years from the conclusion of the contract, unless a longer storage period is required by law, e.g. for taxation purposes.

9. Cookies

Our website uses “HTTP-cookies in order to store user specific data. A “cookie” is short data packet, which is exchanged between the web browser and the web server, which are without meaning for them but are then essential for the web application, e.g. an online shop, e.g. for the virtual shopping cart.

There are two types of cookies: First-party cookies are created by our website, third-party cookies are created by other websites (e.g. Google Analytics). There are three categories of cookies: essential cookies to ensure basic functionality of the website, functional cookies: to ensure website performance and targeted cookies: to improve the user experience. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They allow us to recognize your browser upon your next visit. If you do not wish this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you allow this only in individual cases. You can always delete cookies that are already on your computer or disable cookies. The steps for doing this varies from browser to browser, it is therefore best to look for the instructions in Google using the search term “delete cookies chrome” or “disable cookies chrome” in the case of a Chrome browser or exchange the word “chrome” for the name of your browser, e.g. edge, Firefox, safari. If you generally do not allow us to use cookies, i.e. disable them via browser settings, some features and pages may not work as expected.

15. TLS encryption with https

We use https to transfer data securely over the internet. By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission over the internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data.
