Special Interest Magazines Zeitschriftenverlagsges. m. b. H. for the purpose of conducting and handling the competition. You can object to this storage, processing and use of your data at any time by sending a letter to S.I.M. Special Interest Magazines Zeitschriftenverlagsges. m. b. H., Tuchlauben 7A, 1010 Vienna, Austria or by sending an e-mail to [email protected]. In this case, your data will be deleted immediately. In this case, your data will be deleted immediately - further participation in the competition is then unfortunately no longer possible.

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties beyond this, unless this is necessary for the purpose of processing the competition, e.g. to a shipping service provider for the purpose of delivering the prize.

Your personal data will be deleted at the end of the competition.

Hosting and log files

To operate this website, we require hosting services such as infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space, database services, security and maintenance services. We or our hosting service provider process data of our website visitors such as contact data, content data, usage data, meta and communication data due to our legitimate interest in a satisfactory and secure website offering. For the same reason, we or our hosting service provider process so-called server log files (e.g. website accessed, file, time of access, data volume, browser and operating system information, referrer website, IP address, user provider). Log files are stored for a maximum of 12 months for security reasons (investigation of misuse or fraud). If it is necessary for evidentiary purposes due to an incident, data may be stored for longer. We have concluded an order data processing contract with our hosting provider.

Web analysis and analysis cookies

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service "Google Analytics" from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Cookies are used for this purpose, which enable the use of the website by its users to be analyzed. The information generated in this way is transferred to the provider's servers in the USA and stored there. Your IP address is recorded but immediately anonymized by shortening it. This means that only a rough localization is possible. You can prevent this by configuring your browser so that no cookies are stored.

Data processing is carried out on the basis of the statutory provisions of Section 96 (3) TKG and Article 6 (1) (a) (consent) and/or (f) (legitimate interest) of the GDPR. Our concern within the meaning of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website. We have concluded a corresponding contract with the provider for commissioned data processing. Opt-out:

Facebook guarantees to comply with European data protection law on the basis of standard contractual clauses. We would like to point out that Facebook collects a large amount of data when you visit our fan page, including the IP address, information about the end device, browser, origin and user behavior. This data may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook users have given their consent for this data processing or this is part of their user agreement with Facebook.

We operate this fan page for marketing and communication purposes on the basis of our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Integration of third-party services and/or content

Third-party services are used, e.g. to integrate videos.

For this purpose, these third-party providers require the IP addresses of the website users, as otherwise they cannot deliver the integrated content to the user devices. In addition, the third-party providers may set cookies on the end user's devices, which store, for example, which video has already been viewed and for how long, in order to be able to continue at this point. Furthermore, the cookies may contain technical information about the user's browser and operating system as well as information about website references, visit times, etc.

We integrate the following third-party services:
