Liability & Disclaimers

Responsibility for contents

The contents of the pages in this website have been compiled with great care. Nonetheless, for the correctness and the completeness of their current applicability we can accept no liability. As service provider we are responsible for our own contents in accordance with applicable and valid laws. As service provider, however, we are not responsible to supervise communicated or saved information from other sources; to research the reliability of their contents; or to verify that they do not lead to any illegal activity. The duty to remove or close off access to information in accordance with compliance with generally valid laws remains unaffected by this disclaimer. However, liability is possible only as of the point in time when knowledge is acquired of a concrete violation of the law. As soon as such legal violations become known to us, the contents will be removed without delay.


Responsibility for Links

Our offerings include links to external websites owned and operated by third parties over whose contents we have no influence. For that reason, we are not able to assume any liability for these contents. The contents of the linked pages remain the complete responsibility of the offerer or provider of the pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time they were linked to our website; at that time, no legal violations were recognizable. Permanent control of the substance of the linked pages without concrete clues of a possible legal violation is unfeasible and unreasonable. As soon as violations of the law become known, the suspect links will be removed without delay.



The contents composed, compiled or generated by the owner and operator of the website are subject to German copyright law. Copying, editing/reworking, distribution, any and all forms of exploitation beyond the bounds of copyright law require the express written approval of the respective author, i.e. owner of the contents. Downloads and copies of these pages are permissible only for private use, not for commercial use. Insofar as the contents of the website were not generated by the website operator, the copyrights of third parties will be respected. In particular, contents of third parties will be designated as such. In case someone nevertheless discovers a violation of copyright, we request to be notified with specific information. As soon as violations of the copyright laws become known, we will remove those contents without delay.


Data protection

Use of our website is generally possible without supplying any personal data. Insofar as personal data, e.g. name, address or e-mail address, are requested, it is supplied on a voluntary basis whenever possible. Such data are not passed on to third parties without your express permission.

Please note that data transfer via the Internet, e.g. e-mail communication, can have security shortcomings. A flawless protection of data from being accessed by third parties is not possible.

Use of contact data provided in the framework of mandatory printing information by third parties for purposes of sending non-solicited advertising and informational materials is thus gainsayed and expressly ruled out. The operator of this website reserve the right to introduce legal proceedings in case non-solicited advertising materials, i.e. via spam mails, are sent.


Data protection statement regarding the use of Facebook plugins ("Like" button)

In this website, plugins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, are integrated. The Facebook plugins recognize you through the Facebook logo or the “Like” button (“Gefällt mir”) in our website. A summary of the Facebook plugins can be viewed at this website address: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. Whenever you visit our website, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server via the plugin. Facebook thus receives the information that your IP address has visited our Website. If you then click on the “Like” button in the course of your visit while you are logged in to your Facebook account, the contents of our website can be linked to your Facebook profile. That way, Facebook can register your visit to our website to your user account. Please note that we, as provider of these website pages, have no knowledge of the contents of the data transferred or their use by Facebook and are not informed of it by Facebook. Further information on this subject can be found in the Data Protection Statement of Facebook at  https://www.facebook.com/policy.php . If you do not wish for Facebook to register your visit to our website in your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.

Custom Audiences
The Facebook function known as “Custom Audiences” is an electronic system of tracking and targeting for advertisement purposes. When one calls up this website, a previously defined and coded command is carried out and a remarketing-pixel from Facebook is tied to it. In the process, Facebook records the data of our website as the basis for our advertising spots on Facebook (“Custom Audiences”). Thus, to cite but one example, we can dictate that in our Facebook ads only feminine visitors are displayed. You can object to the Tracking & Targeting programme on Facebook at this link.


Data protection statement regarding the use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereinafter “Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files which are saved in your computer and which enable analysis of your use of the website through them. The information which is generated through the cookie about your use of this website, including your IP address is transfered to a Google server in the U.S. and kept in storage there.

Google will use this information to analyse and evaluate your use of our website in order to make reports of website activities for the website operator; and to provide additional interrelated services in connection with website use and Internet use. Google will also pass on this information to third parties, as the case may be, as long as it is legally required to do so or insofar as third parties are commissioned by Google to process this information. Google will under no circumstances associate your IP address with other data of Google Inc.

You can prevent the saving of cookies in your computer through the corresponding adjustment of your computer settings in the browser software. Please note that if you do this, it will not be possible to use all the functions of the website. You can, furthermore, prevent the recording of personal data which is gathered via the cookie regarding your use of the website, including your IP address, and its being sent to Google, as well as the processing of such data by Google, by downloading the available browser plugin at the following link and installing it: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.


Use of retargeting functions of the website www.schimtten.at

Placement of related interest advertising with the help of “retargeting”.

This website uses so-called “retargeting tags”. A retargeting tag is a JavaScript element which is placed in a source code of the website. If a user visits a particular page of the website which contains a retargeting tag, a provider of online advertising, e.g. Google, places a cookie in the computer of that user and allocates a retargeting list of potential customers to it. This cookie subsequently serves retargeting campaigns, i.e. related interest advertising being placed in other websites. Studies have shown that it is more attractive for Internet users to have such advertising faded in than be faced with advertising which makes no direct, individual connection to previously visited websites.


Possible adjustments and deactivation settings

Third party providers, including Google, use these cookies to fade in ads based on previous visits of an Internet user to our website. No personal data are saved. Users of this website can deactivate the use of cookies by Google by calling up the website address “Google Anzeigenvorgaben”. Internet users can also deactivate the use of cookies by third parties through visiting the page “Network Advertising Initiative” and carrying out the required adjustments in the settings.
