Data privacy
Following the requirements of the GDPR (data privacy regulation) of the European Commission we established this data protection declaration to explain, which information we collect, how we use data and which decisions you, as a visitor of this webpage can make. acib collects personal data on the following websites:

Automatic Data Storage
When you visit an acib website certain data is generated and stored automatically; this also happens on our websites. When you visit an acib website our server (computer that hosts the website) automatically stores data such as the IP-address of your device, the addresses of the sub-sites you visited, details on your internet browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge,…) and date and time. We don’t use this data and don’t forward it to third parties. We can, however, not guarantee that this data is not inspected in case of illegal actions.

Storage of Personal Data
Personal data you transmit on an acib website such as name, email address, postal address or comments on a blog contribution will be used together with date and IP address only for the use intended. This data will securely be stored and not transferred to third parties. This means we use personal data only for communication with visitors who explicitly desire to stay in contact and for processing services and products offered on our website. We will not forward your personal data without your consent we can, however, not guarantee that they are not inspected in case of unlawful actions. If you send us personal data via email – not via an acib website – we cannot guarantee for a secure transfer and the protection of your data. Therefore, we advise you to never send personal data per email without encryption.

Your rights
Basically you have the right to be informed, the right to rectification, the right to erasure the right to restrict processing, the right to data portability and the right to object. If you think that the processing of your data violates the data protection regulations or that your rights have been otherwise infringed you can complain at the regulatory authority, which in Austria is the “Datenschutzbehörde” (Data Protection Authority). The website can be found at:

TLS-encryption with https
We use https for secure internet data transfer. The use of TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transfer enables us to guarantee the protection of confidential data. The use of secure data transfer is indicated by a small lock symbol at the upper left side of the website address in your Browser window and the use of https as part of our internet address.

Our websites use cookies to save user-specific data. A cookie is a short data package, which is exchanged between web-browser and web server and is totally meaningless unless it is used for a web application such as an online shop where it is needed for virtual shopping carts, e.g. There are two types of cookies: First Party Cookies are generated by our website, Third Party Cookies are generated by other websites (for example Google Analytics). There are three categories of cookies: Strictly Necessary Cookies in order to guarantee essential functions of the web site, Functional Cookies in order to secure the performance of the website and Target Cookies in order to enhance user experience. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Sone of the cookies remain on your device until you delete them. They enable us to remember your browser when you visit us again. If you don’t want this you can configure your browser to inform you when cookies are used and you will be able to agree or disagree on each single occasion. You can anytime delete the cookies that are stored on your computer or totally deactivate cookies. The procedure varies from browser to browser. In order to find out how you can do it with your browser look for “delete cookies chrome” or deactivate cookies chrome” in Google if you use Chrome. For other browsers please replace chrome with the name of your browser (e.g. edge, safari, firefox). If you generally don’t allow us to use cookies or deactivate cookies in your browser settings this may cause a lack of functionality of specific pages.
