At Verkehrsbüro Aktiengesellschaft, we have a strong commitment to respecting our users’ concerns about privacy. Therefore, we take appropriate measures to protect personal information collected from users of our website in accordance with the Austrian “Federal Act concerning the Protection of Data”. Personal information provided by you when making a request on our website is used exclusively for the purpose of responding to and processing your request. As a matter of course, we commit ourselves to not selling or renting personal details that have been passed on to us to any third parties (except where it would be necessary to properly process your request).
Our website may contain links to third parties’ websites. Please note that we are not responsible for the collection, use, maintenance, sharing or disclosure of data and information by such third parties.
We have integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports showing the activities on our websites and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on your IT-system. By using this cookie, Google gets able to analyse the usage of our website. Each time you visit one of the individual pages of websites operated by us and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on your IT-system is automatically triggered by the respective Google Analytics component to send data to Google for the purposes of the online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google will receive personally identifiable information, such as your IP address, which are used to track the origin of visitors and clicks and facilitate commission settlement.
By using this cookie, personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website, is being stored. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection you use, is transferred to Google. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
You can prevent the storing of cookies through our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the activation of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on your IT- system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
With your permission, our website utilizes the Conversion Tracking Pixel service of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). This tool allows us to follow the actions of users after they are redirected to our website by clicking on a Facebook advertisement. We are thus able to record the efficacy of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes. The collected data remain anonymous. This means that we cannot see the personal data of any individual user. However, the collected data are saved and processed by Facebook. We are informing you on this matter according to our information at this time. Facebook is able to connect the data with your Facebook account and use the data for their own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Use Policy found under: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. Facebook Conversion Tracking also allows Facebook and its partners to show you advertisements on and outside Facebook. In addition, a cookie will be saved onto your computer for these purposes.

Whenever it is necessary for you to enter personal information online, we use an encrypted transmission method (SSL) to protect your confidential information.
“SSL” stands for “Secure Socket Layer”. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from “http://” to “https://”. This indicates that you are in a secure mode. In addition, you may also see one of the following icons in the lower right-hand or left-hand corner of the computer screen:
SSL creates a secure connection between a client and a server (your computer), over which any amount of data can be sent in secure mode. For using SSL, the browser and the server need what is called an SSL certificate to be able to establish a secure connection and to indicate where the server is located and who it is operated by. In order to receive such a certificate, you need a certificate issuer, who guarantees that the information given is accurate. Our secure server has been certified by the Comodo Group.
