a. Cookies

Your website uses cookies. We use cookies on our website to help make your visits more user-friendly and effective. A cookie is a small text file which serves the purpose of saving information. When visiting a website, the website may set a cookie on the website user’s computer. If the user visits the website again, the website can read the data from the formally saved cookie in order to know whether or not the user has visited the website before and, if so, which areas of the website were of most interest to him/her.

You can set your browser in a way that it informs you about cookies and gives you the opportunity to allow or not allow the setting of cookies on an individual basis as well as to automatically delete all cookies when closing the browser. Deactivating cookies may lead to a limited functionality of the website and you might not be able to entirely use the website.

Our website particularly uses the following cookies:

Google Tag Manager: used as a central control of all cookies used by the website
Cookie consent plugin: stores the information that the user consented to the use of cookies
Google Analytics: serves to store anonymised user data for Google Analytics through Google

Legal basis for the use of cookies in compliance with Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR is the legitimate interest of Mag. Dr. Sebastian Siudak.

  • Called-up content
  • Time of server enquiry

Legal basis for the use of cookies in compliance with Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR is the legitimate interest of Mag. Dr. Sebastian Siudak

There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your personal data. The only consequence of not providing it is that you do not submit your request and we cannot process it.

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time by written notification, without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of revocation.

The processing of your personal data when contacting us is based on the implementation of (pre-)contractual measures in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit b GDPR.

The data processed for the stated purposes will be processed for the duration of the contractual relationship. If the client relationship is concluded, your personal data will be stored on the basis of the statutory provisions/storage obligations.


c. Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google“). When our website is called-up, a software establishes a connection with the Google servers and transmits data to Google servers which might be located in the USA. Google Analytics additionally uses cookies in order to store information about the website user and in order to analyse the use of the website by the user.

This website uses the functionality “IP Anonymization”. For this purpose, within member states of the European Union and other contracting states of the European Economic Area your IP address will be shortened and thereby anonymised by Google before its transmission to a Google server in the Unites States. Only in exceptional circumstances, the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there.

According to Google, the collected information will be used to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide further services related to website and internet usage.

The collected data may also be transmitted to third parties as far as this is required by law or as far as third parties have been commissioned by Google to process the data.

You can deactivate Google Analytics. You can block the collection of your personal user data by Google Analytics by downloading and installing the following available browser plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

You can block the collection of your personal user data by clicking on the following link: Your local browser cache will be set in a way that the collection of your data is blocked for future visits of the website:

Legal basis for the use of Google Analytics in compliance with Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR is the legitimate interest of Mag. Dr. Sebastian Siudak. The analysis of the usage of this website is done to optimize the website.
