Vienna, November 2023
We would like to inform you about the processing of your personal data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act (DSG), and the Telecommunications Act (TKG).
Personal data includes all information about personal or factual circumstances, such as name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, social security number, video recordings, photos, etc.
We collect, process, and use your personal data only if necessary for the fulfillment of a contract or due to a legal obligation, or if you voluntarily provide us with this data. For processing beyond these purposes, we will obtain your consent before processing. If our legitimate interest in data processing outweighs your interest in data protection, processing may occur even without your consent.
We will use the data provided to us, in particular, for the purpose of contract fulfillment, contract initiation, and compliance with legal obligations.
If there are changes to your personal data, please inform us accordingly.
Please note that the provision of personal data may be legally required (e.g., tax regulations) or may result from contractual regulations (e.g., information about the contractual partner). Failure to provide personal data may result in the inability to conclude a contract.
2. Your Rights
You have the right to information about your stored personal data, as well as the right to correction, data transfer, objection, restriction of processing, and blocking or deletion of incorrect or unlawfully processed data. You also have the right to revoke your consent at any time.
If you believe that the processing of your personal data by us violates applicable data protection laws, you have the option to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority. In Austria, the responsible authority is the Data Protection Authority.
3. Data Security
The protection of your personal data is ensured through appropriate organizational and technical measures. These measures include protection against unauthorized, unlawful, or accidental access, loss, processing, use, and manipulation.
Please note that we do not assume any liability for the disclosure of information due to errors not caused by us during data transmission and/or unauthorized access by third parties.
4. Transmission of Data to Third Parties
To fulfill our contractual or legal obligations, it may be necessary to transmit your data to processors or other recipients, especially authorities. Processors process your personal data on our behalf and only to the extent necessary for the fulfillment of these tasks. Our processors include external service companies, for example.
Within our offer, based on our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), we use content or service offers from third-party companies to integrate content and services.
This requires the transmission of your IP address to third-party providers, as without the IP address, the content cannot be sent to your browser. The IP address is necessary for the presentation of this content. Third-party providers may also use so-called web beacons for statistical or marketing purposes. Web beacons can evaluate information such as website traffic. For this purpose, a cookie may also be placed, containing technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visit time, and other information about the use of our website. The following overview provides an overview of the third-party providers we use.
5. Data Retention
We store your data as long as necessary to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations. For example, we are required to keep our accounting records and records for a period of 7 years from the end of the relevant calendar year.
If you have given us your consent, we will store your data as long as specified in your consent declaration, such as within a contract with you.
In addition, we will store your data as long as necessary to defend against liability or other claims within the statutory limitation periods. According to Austrian law, these are generally 3 years from knowledge of the damage and the damaging party.
Requests that did not lead to the conclusion of a contract will be stored by us for the purpose of internal analysis, such as the analysis of our offer, for a period of 24 months.
Our obligations to delete in the event of the exercise of your right to deletion in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR are not affected by the above paragraphs.
