declaration explains which of your data is collected on our website and which and

at any time in writing by contacting us (see section 9).
- 2. Collection, processing and use of personal data
- Personal data means any information which allows us to identify you and can be
traced back to you, such as your name, email address, phone number and any
reference data you give us when you register.
- We will only collect, use and transmit your personal data if licit or if you agree to data
collection. We collect your information directly from your entries and automatically via
the online application’s technology.
- 2.1 Collection, processing and use of your personal data
- We collect, store and process your data for the entire purchase transaction, technical
administration, statistical analysis, our own marketing purposes (see section 2.2) as
well as for preventing criminal offence and fraud or for detecting security threats. In
particular, we use your data for the following actions:
- to provide and improve our service and support;
- to contact you according to your request;
- for data analyses;
- for internal audits;
- to prevent and detect security threats, fraud and other malicious activities;
- to meet our legal obligations and carry out our agreements;
- to create accounts and statistics on access behaviour (e.g. number of
accesses to a source, number of accesses per client in total and per source,
changes in access frequency).
- 2.1.1 Log files
- When visiting our website www.otrans.at, protocol data, so-called log files, are stored
by default for technical reasons. These datasets contain the following data: date,
time, name of the opened page, IP address, the website from which you visit us
(referrer URL), browser type, and operating system. We also capture and store
automatically which pages you visit. This data is stored and analysed anonymously.
Anonymously means that it is not possible or possible only with disproportionately
great effort of time, costs and workforce, that data be attributed to a certain or
determinable natural person.
- 2.1.2. Transmission to third parties
- Your personal data will only be transmitted to third parties where legally permissible
(to enforce or fulfil a regulatory order, a law or an arbitrary measure, to detect and
prevent safety threats, fraud or any other malicious activities, to protect or enforce
our rights and property or to protect the rights or personal security of our staff and
third parties), for marketing purposes or if you have given your consent.
- It is possible that contents of third parties such as maps of Google Maps, videos of
YouTube, RSS feeds or graphics of other websites are incorporated within our
website. This always implies that the provider of these contents detects the IP
address of the user, because without the IP address it would not be possible to send
the contents to the user’s browser. Therefore, the IP address is required in order to
display these contents. We attempt to use only contents of providers who use the IP
address only to transmit the contents. However, we have no influence on this, in case
the third parties store your IP address e.g. for statistical purposes. If this becomes
known we will inform you about it.
- Your personal data is partially stored by third parties such as Google, Facebook, etc.
in the USA and will be disclosed by them for special purposes. To learn for which
purposes your data is disclosed, we recommend you review the respective privacy

Your consent to the newsletter is voluntary and may be revoked at any time. You can
revoke via the unsubscribe link in each newsletter or by sending a message in writing (e.g. email, letter) to the contact listed in section 10.

deleted once you close your browser, and temporary/permanent cookies that are
stored on your device for a longer period of time or unlimited time. This storage helps
us to design our websites and offers for you and facilitates the use by storing certain
entries that you have made so that you do not have to repeat them constantly.

our shop or internet presence and our products with advertisement on our partners’
websites. The display of these advertising materials on our partners’ pages is based
on a cookie technology and an analysis of the previous user behaviour. This form of
advertising is entirely pseudonymous. By using cookies, your usage data will be
collected, stored and used. Furthermore, your data in cookies will be stored beyond
the end of the browser session and may be made available again during your next

thereby prevent future storage of cookies. If you want to accept only Otrans’s
cookies, but not those of our service providers and partners, you can choose “block third party cookies” in your browser’s setup. The help function on the menu bar of
your web browser shows you how to reject new cookies and deactivate those already

register, log in or use the service of our website to its full extent.
