Data Protection Statement

Liability for content

The contents of our pages were created with great care. However, we cannot assume any liability for the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content. As a service provider we are responsible according to § 25 MedienG for own contents on these sides according to the general laws. However, we, as service providers, are under no obligation to monitor any third-party information transmitted or stored, or to investigate circumstances that indicate unlawful activity.

Our offer contains links to external websites of third parties on whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking.

The reproduction, processing, distribution and any kind of exploitation outside the limits of copyright require the written consent of the respective author or creator.

2. Transmission of your personal data

Your personal data is collected, among other things, when using our contact form:

Use of our contact form

If this is absolutely necessary for the purposes stated under point 1, we will forward your personal data to the following recipients:

  • IT service providers we use (currently DATEV eG, Paumgartnerstrasse 6-14, 90429 Nuremberg, GERMANY, DATEV.at GmbH, Strohgasse 14C, 1030 Vienna, DVO Software Development and Sales GmbH, Nestroyplatz 1, 1020 Vienna), as well as other service providers in connection with marketing activities,

Some of the above recipients may be outside of Austria or process your personal information outside of Austria. The level of data protection in other countries may not be the same as in Austria. We therefore take steps to ensure that all recipients provide an adequate level of data protection. For example, we conclude standard contractual clauses (2010/87 / EC and / or 2004/915 / EC). These are available on request (see point 5).

3. Storage limitation

In principle, we store your personal data until the termination of the business relationship in the course of which we have collected your data or until expiry of the applicable statutory limitation and retention periods; in addition, until the termination of any legal disputes in which the data is required as proof. Insofar as you are a client, former client, prospective customer or potential future client or contact person at one of the aforementioned, we store your personal data for the purpose of marketing until your objection or revocation of your consent, as far as the marketing measure is based on your consent.
