You have the right to object to this data processing (data subject’s right to object to data processing in the legitimate interest pursuant to Art 21 (1) GDPR). In this case, we will only process your data if we have compelling legitimate grounds for further processing.

It is not possible to draw any direct conclusions about your identity from this information. The data will be automatically deleted once the aforementioned purposes have been achieved.

As a rule, we only pass on your data collected on the basis of the use of our website to the extent that this is absolutely necessary to fulfil the stated purposes (operation and maintenance of the website via external service providers, data transfer to e-mail providers in the processing of communication). However, we may also be legally or officially obliged to pass on data to third parties (e.g. passing on data to law enforcement authorities).

For all data transfers, we ensure that only the absolutely necessary information is transferred and fulfil the data protection requirements for data transfer (e.g. strict obligation to follow instructions for processors via Art. 28 contracts, obligation to secrecy and confidentiality, obligation to fully comply with an adequate level of protection in the processing of personal data).

6. Storage period of the data

Your data will only be stored for as long as is technically and organisationally necessary to achieve the stated purposes and to fulfil our legal obligations. We store log file data for a period of 6 months. We may also retain your personal data for certain periods of time on the legal basis of legitimate interest. When determining the periods, we take care not to infringe your rights and freedoms. If the data retention is no longer necessary, we will delete your data immediately.

7. Rights of data subjects / your rights to protect your personal data

You have a number of rights in relation to your personal data processed by us. You can assert all these rights free of charge and informally (by e-mail, telephone or post), if necessary after providing proof of your identity, using the contact details provided. Your rights in detail:

Right to information: You can request information about the data we process informally at any time. In this case, we will inform you in writing of the data we have stored about you, the purposes for which we use it, the categories of recipients to whom we pass it on and how long we intend to store it. We will comply with your request for information without delay, but within one month at the latest.

Right to erasure: You have the right to informally request the erasure of your data processed by us at any time. We will comply with this request if your data is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected, if you revoke any existing consent, in the event of unlawful data processing or if deletion is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation.

Right to rectification: If we mistakenly process incorrect or incomplete data about you, we will of course rectify it. An informal request addressed to us is sufficient for this purpose.

Right to restriction of processing: If it is not possible to erase your data or if you do not wish your data to be erased, but you do not consent to its use beyond the storage of the data, we are obliged to restrict the further processing of your personal data at your request.

Right to data portability: Upon your informal request, we will provide you with the data we have stored about you, which we have received on the basis of a contract or your consent, free of charge in a standard file format. You can use this data for your own purposes and pass it on to future contractual partners. If you wish and if it is technically feasible, we will also transfer your data directly to an addressee named by you. In this case, we will inform you after the transfer has taken place. We will fulfil your request immediately, but within one month at the latest.

Right to revoke consents granted: You can withdraw your consent to data processing at any time with effect for the future, in which case we will stop processing your data. The legality of the data processing carried out up to this point in time is not affected by the withdrawal of consent.

Right to object: If we process your data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you have the right under the General Data Protection Regulation to object to the further processing of your data. If you exercise this right, we will no longer process your data for the purpose to which you have objected – unless there are legitimate grounds on our part for further processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.

8. Right to lodge a complaint

The EU General Data Protection Regulation and the Austrian Data Protection Act guarantee you the above-mentioned rights in the area of data protection. If you believe that one of these rights has been violated by us, you have the option of lodging a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. The supervisory authority in Austria is the Austrian Data Protection Authority, Barichgasse 40-42, 1030 Vienna.
