Privacy

This Data Protection Declaration clarifies the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of data of visitors and users (collectively referred to as “Users”) by the website www.steyr-arms.com (hereinafter “Provider”) as data protection-responsible body.

Collection of access data

The provider collects data about every access to the online offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the retrieved website, file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the log data without assignment to the person of the user or other profiling according to the legal regulations only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the online offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a legitimate suspicion of illegal use on the basis of concrete indications.

Collection and use of personal data

Personal data will only be collected and used by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the users consent to the data collection. As a rule, it is recognizable to the users when using the service which data is stored, such as name, e-mail address and message when using the order form.
The personal data provided for the purpose of ordering goods (such as name, e-mail address, address, payment data) will be used by the seller for the performance and execution of the contract. This data will be treated confidentially, transmitted in encrypted form and, unless otherwise stated, will not be passed on to third parties who are not involved in the ordering, delivery and payment process.

When contacting the provider (via contact form or email), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

The provider has taken organisational, contractual and technical security measures to ensure that the provisions of the data protection laws are complied with and that accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access of unauthorized persons is prevented.

Data forwarding to third parties

The data of the users will only be forwarded to third parties if this is permitted by law or if a user has consented to the forwarding.
This is the case, for example, if the forwarding of the data serves the fulfilment of contractual obligations towards the user and the postal address is handed over to a forwarding company after a shop order. Or if the data is requested by competent authorities such as law enforcement authorities.
The personal data of the users are not sold or forwarded to third parties for advertising purposes or for the purpose of creating user profiles.
