6 How do we protect your personal data?

In order to guarantee the security of your personal data, we have introduced a number of technical and organisational measures in accordance with Article 32 of the GDPR. Your personal information is stored on secure networks that can only be accessed by a limited number of people who have special access rights and are committed to respecting and maintaining the confidentiality of that information. Despite these measures, each time you provide personal information via the Internet, there is a risk that it may be intercepted and used by third parties outside our control. Although we do everything in our power to protect your personal information and privacy, we are not in a position to guarantee the security of the information you provide via the Internet.

Data security measures:

15 Cookies

We collect certain information when you visit our websites. This information is referred to as a “cookie”. Together with the information you have provided us with, we can optimise your visits to our website even better to even better match your needs.

Cookies are small files that allow LANGZAUNER to store information on your PC or digital device specific to you as the user while you visit the websites. The website uses or sets cookies in accordance with legislation under EU law and Austrian law (article 5 paragraph 3 of the E-Privacy Directive and article 96 paragraph 3 of TKG 2003). Cookies help to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of the internet pages, as well as to configure the offering as conveniently and efficiently as possible for you. The content of the cookies used is usually limited to an identification number and usage data that does not permit any personal reference being made to the user.

The use of our website is also possible without cookies, but may restrict the usage of the website.

When using or setting cookies which contain personal data, or which affect privacy, LANGZAUNER obtains your active consent in advance when your navigation through our website brings you to our cookie banner where you receive information about the purposes of the cookies used and can give your consent to the setting of cookies.

For us, data protection is an essential contribution to customer satisfaction. You can therefore deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser, restrict it to certain websites or set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent. You can also delete cookies from your PC’s hard drive at any time. Please note, however, that this will result in a restricted display of the page and you can expect limited user guidance.

Legal basis for the use of cookies and the processing of personal data for marketing purposes including profiling

We process all web analysis and marketing cookies listed in this data protection declaration and the data collected with them for analysis and marketing purposes in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f EU-DSGVO (see also recital 47 to the EU-DSGVO). However, before we use cookies through which personal data is collected, we also obtain your consent in order to comply with the legal requirements of § 96 (3) TKG.

In the course of the analysis and marketing measures we use, profiling is also carried out as required.

According to Art. 4 EU-DSGVO, “profiling” is any automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, whereabouts or change of location of that natural person.

This profiling is permitted because it does not significantly affect you or your interests. On 3 October 2017, Data Protection Working Party 29 published guidelines on automated case-by-case decision making and profiling, in which online marketing and the tools used for it are explicitly dealt with under II.B. Data Protection Working Party 29 assumes that – subject to case-by-case examination – in many typical cases targeted advertising – i.e. advertising based on demographic profiles, for example – does not fall under the prohibition of Art. 22 EU-DSGVO.

As we have a legitimate interest in being able to give you the best possible recommendations for products from our wide range of goods, we therefore use the tools available from the listed providers. It goes without saying that we take appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms.

16 Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of 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 shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Browser-Add-on for deactivating of Google Analytics.

The processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

IP anonymization

We use the function “Activation of IP anonymization” on this website. However, this will cause your IP address to be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are parties 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 shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

Google Analytics Remarketing

Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA..

This feature allows you to link the advertising audiences created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted to you on one device (e.g. mobile phone) based on your previous usage and surfing behaviour can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have given permission, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be delivered on any device you sign in to with your Google Account.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target audiences for cross-device advertising.

You can opt-out of cross-device remarketing/targeting permanently by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account, following this link:

The summary of the data collected in your Google Account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or withdraw to Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). For data collection operations that are not merged into your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merging), the collection of data is based on article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of the DPA. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymised analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.

Further information and the privacy policy can be found in the privacy policy of Google under:

17 Use of Google tag manager

We use the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website-tags to be controlled from one interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. No cookies are set and no personal data is collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags to collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. Has this been done at the domain or cookie level, so it stays the same for all tracking tags. More information about Google Tag Manager can be found at

The user has the option to prevent sending of all tags. To do this, the user must click on the opt-out link below to deactivation cookie in their browser.

For more information, see the usage policies at

18 Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to present our content correctly and in a graphically appealing way across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts ( on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.

Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – for the operators of such libraries to collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here:

21 Use of social plugins

Our website uses so-called social plugins (plugins) provided by the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance here:

In order to increase the protection of your data when you visit our website, the plugins are integrated into the page using a so-called “2-click” or “Shariff” solution. This integration ensures that when a page of our website containing such plugins is accessed, no connection to the Facebook servers is established. Only when you activate the plugins and give your consent to the transfer of data does your browser establish a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the respective plugin is transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into the page. The plugin then transmits data (including your IP address) to Facebook. We have no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects using the plugin. To the best of our knowledge, Facebook receives information about which of our websites you are currently visiting and have previously visited. Through the integration of the plugin, Facebook also receives the information that your browser has opened the corresponding page on our website if you do not have a profile on Facebook or are not currently logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transferred by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA where it is stored. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “Like” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your contacts.
Please see Facebook’s Data Policy at for the purpose and extent of the data collection and the further processing and usage of the data by Facebook plus your associated rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy.

If you are a member of Facebook’s social network and wish to limit the collection of information about our websites and the merging of your user information with information about you stored on Facebook’s social network, you should unsubscribe from Facebook before visiting our website. You can also block the Facebook plugin for the future using add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the script blocker “NoScript” (
