We at ROSAM.GRÜNBERGER | Change Communications GmbH (“RGCC”) are delighted that you have decided to visit our website. While visitors are using our website, we do our utmost to ensure their data is protected and secure. Therefore, at this point we would like to inform you about which of your personal data we will collect during your visit to our website and for what purpose they will be used.
Since amendments to laws or changes to our company’s internal procedures might necessitate adjustments to this privacy statement, we ask you to read it through regularly. The privacy statement can be accessed at any time under Privacy Statement (http://rosam-gruenberger.at/datenschutz/), then saved or printed.
This privacy statement applies to the internet services of RGCC, which can be accessed under the domain www.rosam-gruenberger.at, as well as for business relationships with employers.
§2 What are personal data?
Personal data can be used to glean information about your personal or professional relationships (e.g., name, address, telephone number, date of birth or e-mail address). Information which we cannot use to establish any personal reference to you (or which requires an undue amount of effort on our part to do so), such as anonymised information, is not considered personal data.
§ 3 Which personal data do we collect, process and use?
You can use the vast majority of our web services without providing any personal data. In principle, the access data we store will have no personal reference—this includes the name of your internet service provider, the page from which you visit us, the name of the requested files, and their date of access. Your IP address will also be stored. These data will be evaluated only to improve our service, and do not normally enable any conclusions to be drawn about you personally.
In addition, the data we collect about you while you are using our services helps us to render those services. We will always obtain your permission before transmitting your personal data to third parties or using it for purposes not listed in this privacy statement, unless we are legally obligated to release data (such as information to law enforcement authorities and courts, or to public institutions who receive data because of statutory provisions, such as social insurance agencies, tax authorities, etc.) or call in third parties who have been obligated to professional discretion to enforce our claims.
In particular, personal data will be used for the following purposes:
a) Advertising and market research
Besides using your data listed in § 3 to process the services you wish, we use it to offer you an online presence geared towards your interests, to send you (by e-mail or post) news and information about our company and range of services based on your data, to make any assessments necessary for this purpose, and to carry out market research.
You can revoke your consent to the above at any time, under firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have not yet given us your consent, or if you have revoked it, we will not use your data for purposes listed in the previous section. However, you can obviously continue to use the services of RGCC.
As part of the process of retrieving your requested information, data will be stored on our servers—but only in anonymised form—to help us provide our various services or make assessments. During this process, general information is logged (e.g., the contents from our services that are retrieved, time of retrieval, and pages that are visited most often).
The cookies especially serve to determine how often and by how many people our website is used, and when your visit has come to an end. This tells us which area of our website our users have visited. However, these usage data do not allow any conclusions to be drawn regarding the users themselves. The usage data are collected in anonymised form; none are combined with your personal data as described in § 3, and all are deleted immediately after the statistical assessment. After the session has ended and you have closed your browser, the cookies will be deleted.
Most browsers are preset to accept cookies. You can, however, deactivate the storing of cookies, or set your browser so that it will inform you before it stores them. Users who do not accept cookies may not be able to access certain areas of our website.
§5 Google Analytics
If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, Google will truncate your IP address beforehand within Member States of the EU or other States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Please note that on this website Google Analytics is expanded by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to guarantee an anonymous recording of IP addresses (known as “IP masking”).
On behalf of this website’s operator, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, assemble reports about website activity, and render services for the webmaster regarding website and internet use. The IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.
You can prohibit the storing of cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly; however, we point out that if you do, you will not be able to use all functions of this website to their full capacity.
Moreover, you can prohibit Google from recording the data generated by the cookies regarding your use of the website by downloading and installing the browser plug-in found under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
As an alternative to this browser plug-in, or within browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent Google Analytics from recording this data by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Google Analytics
An “opt-out” cookie will then be set, which will prevent your data from being recorded when you visit this website in the future.
You can find more information about this under http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html (general information about Google Analytics and data protection).
§ 6 Google AdSense
Users can prevent the installation of cookies from Google AdSense in various ways:
- a) by changing the settings on their browser software accordingly;
- b) by deactivating interest-related ads from Google;
- c) by deactivating interest-related ads from the provider, which are part of the self-regulating campaign “About Ads”;
- d) by permanent deactivation through a browser plug-in.
Deleting cookies in your browser settings will also delete the settings named under b) and c). You can find more information about data protection and cookies in regard to advertisements through Google AdSense in Google’s privacy statement, especially under the following links:
§ 7 Security measures for protecting data we have stored
We promise to protect our private sphere and treat your personal data as confidential. In order to ensure data we have stored is not lost or abused, we take extensive technical and organisational security precautions which are regularly tested and adapted to technological advances. Please note that the structure of the internet makes it possible that persons lying outside our area of responsibility might fail to observe the data protection regulations and security measures described above. In particular, unencrypted data which is disclosed—including that sent by e-mail—might be read by third parties. We have no technical influence over this. Users are responsible for encrypting data they provide, or otherwise protecting it against misuse.
§ 8 Hyperlinks to external websites
Our website contains hyperlinks to external websites. If these hyperlinks are activated, you will be redirected from our website directly to the website of another provider. You will recognise this redirection from the URL and other indicators. We cannot guarantee your data will be treated as confidential on these third-party websites, since we have no influence on whether these companies comply with data protection regulations. Please refer to these company’s websites directly to learn how they will treat your personal data.
§ 9 Revocation and objections
You may have already explicitly granted the following consent: Please note that you can basically revoke a previously granted consent at any time, with effect for the future, and can also object at any time to the processing and use of your data for advertising purposes: Please contact email@example.com

§ 10 Information about your personal data we have saved, Length of storage, Deletion
We will store your personal data as long as the law allows. Stored personal data will be deleted if you revoke your permission to store it, if knowledge of this data is no longer needed to fulfil the objective for which it was stored, especially if your user account is deleted, or if its storage is forbidden based on other legal grounds.
We would be glad to inform you at your request about which of your personal data we have stored. If we have stored incorrect data despite our efforts to ensure it is correct and up to date, we will announce this immediately.
