The protection and security of your personal data is very important to us. This website therefore stores and processes data exclusively in accordance with the Austrian and European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You as a user agree to the data processing in the sense of this statement. You can find the current version of the GDPR at:

This privacy policy only refers to this website. If you are forwarded to other sites via links on our pages, please inform yourself directly on the forwarded website about the respective handling of your data.

Your personal data (e.g. name, e-mail address, postal code, city) will only be processed by us in accordance with the provisions of Austrian data protection law.

The following regulations inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data.

The use of this website is in principle possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail or via non-encrypted websites) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

When contacting us via our contact form, your transmitted or entered data will be checked manually or automatically with the existing database for validity and timeliness and, if necessary, compared to correct the data stored by us. For this purpose, it may be necessary for our employees to contact you. This is done by e-mail. The data you enter will be used exclusively for processing the content of your contact. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

Data subject rights
According to the EU General Data Protection Regulation, you are entitled to extensive rights as a data subject. These rights are primarily intended to ensure greater transparency in connection with your data. Your rights as a data subject are the right to information about the personal data concerning you, to correction, deletion, restriction of processing, objection to processing (direct marketing) as well as data portability (only in the case of a contractual relationship or consent) and revocation of consent at any time.
Data subjects may exercise all rights by sending an email to or by contacting us in person (e.g. by phone or directly on site) or by sending a notification by mail, as well as by using the contact form on the website.

Legal Remedies
You are generally entitled to the rights of information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability and objection. For this purpose, please contact Regionalmanagement Südweststeiermark GmbH. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection rights have been violated in any other way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, the data protection authority is responsible for this.

Data deletion
Your data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for which the data was collected and processed ceases to apply and there is no longer any legal obligation to store the data.

Statutory/legal retention obligations or contractual obligations, e.g. to customers under warranty or compensation or to contractual partners are a basis to store the personal data for a longer period (Art 6 para 1 lit c GDPR – basis of the lawfulness of the processing: legal / legal obligation).

We check links that leave our website very carefully. Nevertheless, we do not assume any responsibility or liability for the content on pages linked to from this website or from another website.

We do not pass on this data without your consent. The data processing is based on the legal provisions of § 96 para 3 Telekommunikationsgesetz and Art 6 para 1 lit a (consent) GDPR.
