5. Web presence analysis

Based on their legitimate interests (i.e. interests in analyses, optimisation and economic operation of our on-line offers in terms of point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR), SRS-LGP uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies. Information created by such cookies on on-line offer usage by users is generally transferred to and stored on Google servers based in the US.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and guarantees to comply with European data protection law (

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate on-line offer use by users, to prepare reports on activities within this on-line offer and to provide other services for us related to on-line offer and internet use. In this context, processed data may be used for creating pseudonymised user profiles.

We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymisation enabled which means that Google shortens the users’ IP address within the Member States of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

The user’s IP address which the browser transmits will not be connected with other data collected by Google. Users may prevent cookies from being stored by accordingly changing their browser settings. Users can also prevent data created by cookies and related to their on-line offer use from being transferred to and processed by Google by downloading and installing a browser plug-in available under the below link:

Additional information on data usage by Google, on settings and your rights to object is available on the Google websites: (“Data use by Google when using our partners’ websites/apps”), (“Data use for advertising”), (“Managing information which Google uses to show advertisements to you”).

6. Facebook social plug-ins

Based on their legitimate interests (i.e. an interest in analyses, optimisation and economic operation of our on-line offer in terms of point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR), SRS-LGP uses social plug-ins (“plug-in”) provided by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). These plug-ins may represent interaction elements or contents (e.g. videos; graphics; texts) and can be recognised through the Facebook logo (a white “f” on a blue tile; the terms “Like”, “I like”; or the “Thumb up” symbol) or they are identified as “Facebook social plug-in”. For a list and the design of Facebook social plug-ins, please refer to:

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and guarantees to comply with European data protection law (

If users access on-line offer functions which contain such plug-ins, their device directly establishes a connection with Facebook’s servers. The plug-in contents are then directly transferred to the users’ device and integrated into the page by Facebook. In this context, processed data may be used for creating user profiles. Therefore, we have no influence on the scope of data which Facebook collects through these plug-ins, which is why we provide users with any information we have ourselves.

By embedding plug-ins, Facebook is informed about a user having accessed the relevant on-line offer page. If such user is logged on to Facebook at this time, Facebook is able to allocate the visit to his/her Facebook account. Should users interact with the plug-ins, e.g. by activating the “Like” button or by posting a comment, your device directly transmits to and stores the relevant information on a Facebook server. Even if users have no Facebook account, it is still possible that Facebook has access to and stores their IP address. According to Facebook, they only store anonymised IP addresses in Austria.

For more information on the data collection purpose and scope, the processing and the use of data by Facebook, your rights and possible settings to protect your privacy, please refer to the Facebook privacy policy at:

If users are Facebook members and want to prevent Facebook from both collecting data on them via this on-line offer and connecting this data with membership data stored by Facebook, they must log off from Facebook prior to using our on-line offer and delete their cookies. For more information on settings and objections to data use for advertising purposes, please refer to the Facebook profile settings at, to the US page at or to the EU page at These settings will be made regardless of the platform, that is, they will be applied to all devices, e.g. computers or mobile devices.

SRS-LGP embedded YouTube videos on the website which are stored at and which can be directly played on our website. All videos are embedded under the “extended data protection mode”, i.e., no data on you will be transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when playing the videos will YouTube cookies by stored on your computer and data be transferred to Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States, as the YouTube operator. Data transmission is independent of whether you have a Google account to which you are logged on or whether you have no user account. When being logged on, this data is directly linked to your account. If you do not wish for data to be linked to your profile, you must log off before clicking on the button. YouTube and/or Google, Inc. saves this data as a user profile and uses it for advertisement, market research and/or needs-oriented design of its website. The particular objectives of such analysis (also for users not logged on) include the provision of appropriate advertisement and informing other users of your activities on our website. You have a right to object to such user profiles being created, whereby you must refer to Google, Inc., the YouTube provider, to execute this right.
