2. Legal bases of the processing

If you are an interested party or potential future client, we will only process your contact data for the purpose of direct marketing by sending you electronic mail or contacting you by telephone with your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation ("DSGVO").


If you are our client, we process your personal data because this is necessary to fulfil the contract concluded with you (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).


Otherwise, we process your personal data on the basis of our overriding legitimate interest in achieving the purposes set out in point 1 (Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO) and on the legal basis of the WTBG 2017 (Art. 9 (2) lit. g DSGVO).

Insofar as this is absolutely necessary for the purposes mentioned under point 1, we will transfer your personal data to the following recipients:

  • auditors for the purpose of auditing,

Some of the recipients mentioned above may be located outside of Austria or may process your personal data outside of Austria. The level of data protection in other countries may not correspond to that in Austria. We therefore take measures to ensure that all recipients provide an adequate level of data protection. To this end, we conclude, for example, standard contractual clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC). These are available upon request (see point 6).

4. Storage period

We generally store your personal data until the termination of the business relationship in the context of which we collected your data or until the expiry of the applicable statutory limitation and retention periods; furthermore, until the termination of any legal disputes in which the data is required as evidence. Insofar as you are a client, former client, prospective client or potential future client or a contact person at one of the aforementioned, we will store your personal data for the purposes of marketing until you object or revoke your consent, insofar as the marketing activity is based on your consent.

5. Your rights in connection with personal data

You are entitled, among other things, (i) to verify whether and which personal data we process about you and to obtain copies of such data, (ii) to request the rectification, amendment, or erasure of your personal data to the extent it is incorrect or not processed in accordance with the law, (iii) to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data, (iv) in certain circumstances, object to the processing of your personal data or revoke consent previously given for the processing, provided that any revocation shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out prior to the revocation, (v) request data portability to the extent you are our client, (vi) know the identity of third parties to whom your personal data is transferred, and (vii) lodge a complaint with the data protection authority.
