General information

The protection of your personal data is very important to AC2T research GmbH, Viktor-Kaplan-Straße 2/C, 2700 Wiener Neustadt (hereinafter “AC2T”, “we”, “us”). AC2T observes the applicable legal provisions on the protection, lawful handling and secrecy of personal data, as well as on data security, in particular the Austrian Data Protection Act (“DPA”), the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the Telecommunications Act (“TA”).

This data protection declaration informs you about the type, scope and purposes of the collection and use of your personal data by us in connection with your visit and your use of our website

Personal Information

Personal data is information about data subjects (natural persons) whose identity is determined or at least determinable (e.g. name, e-mail address or IP address).

Getting in Contact

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, we will process your personal data (e-mail, name, telephone number, fax number and your inquiry or the associated documents) for processing your inquiry.


Our website uses so-called “cookies”, which allow the website to recognize your browser on further visits. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your mobile device using the browser. This allows the website to be optimally adapted to your interests. If you do not agree to the storage of cookies on your computer, you can set your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and that you only allow this in individual cases. 

Cookies, which are necessary to carry out electronic communication or to provide certain functions desired by you, are stored based on art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. AC2T has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. You can also deactivate the use of cookies in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to full extent.


This website uses Jetpack, a tool for statistical analysis of visitor traffic, operated by Automattic, Inc. 132 Hawthorne Street San Francisco, CA 94107, USA, using tracking technology provided by  Quantcast  Inc, 201 3rd St, Floor 2, San Francisco, CA 94103-3153, USA.

The Jetpack/ statistics use cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is stored on a server in the USA. The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing and before it is stored. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly.

You can object to the collection and use of data by Quantcast with effect for the future by setting an opt-out cookie in your browser using the following link: If you delete all cookies on your computer, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

The statistics function tracks and stores the following information about visitors to your website:

  • Post and page views
  • Played videos
  • Clicks on outbound links
  • Referrer URLs and search engine terms
  • Country

As part of collecting the above information, the statistics function uses data such as IP address, user ID (if logged in), username (if logged in), user agent, visitor URL, referrer URL, timestamp of an event, browser language and country code. However, none of this information is available to website operators. For example, a website operator can see that a particular post has 285 views, but they cannot see which particular users/accounts viewed that post. In addition, the statistics logs in which this information is stored are only kept for 28 days.

Legal Basis, Storage Periods

Data processing is carried out on basis of GDPR Art 6 (1) lit. a (consent) and/or lit. f (legitimate interest). AC2T has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behaviour in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.

The processed personal data is used for statistical evaluations and for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the website (legitimate interest).

If no explicit storage period is specified during collection (e.g., within the scope of a declaration of consent), your personal data will be deleted (or made anonymous), as far as this is no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose of storage and no legal storage obligations (e.g., commercial and tax storage obligations) conflict.

Transmission and forwarding of personal data

We will not pass on any personal data collected on the basis of your use of the website to third parties without your consent, unless this is necessary to fulfil our obligations or is legally/officially binding. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.


The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of server request
  • IP address

These data are not combined with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is GDPR art. 6 (1) lit. b, which regulates the processing of data.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site, and in particular the AC2T Tribo Portal, uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. As further data, we will collect salutation, first name and surname, federal state and company. We use these data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and do not pass these on to third parties.

The data entered in the newsletter registration form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing processes already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you provide us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes shall remain unaffected.

Your rights and Contact details

In principle, you have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability and objection. If the processing of your data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until revocation. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint ( if you have any further questions on the subject of data protection. Finally, you have the option of filing a complaint with the supervisory authority.

This Data Protection Policy may change from time to time.
