6. Your rights as a data subject
If your personal data are processed during your visit to our website, you as the "data subject" are entitled to the following rights within the meaning of the GDPR:

6.1 Information
You can request information from us as to whether your personal data is processed by us. There is no right to information if the provision of the requested information violates the duty of confidentiality pursuant to Art. 83 StBerG (Tax Consultancy Act) or the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular because of a predominant legitimate interest of a third party. Deviating from this, there may be an obligation to provide information if your interests outweigh the interest in confidentiality, especially taking into account impending damages. Furthermore, the right to information is excluded if the data are only stored because they may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or serve exclusively purposes of data protection or data protection control, provided that the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by suitable technical and organisational measures. If in your case the right to information is not excluded and your personal data is processed by us, you can request information from us about the following information:

  • The purpose of the processing operation
  • Categories of personal data processed by you,
  • Recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data is disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries,
  • where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;
  • the existence of a right to rectification, deletion or limitation of the processing of personal data concerning you or a right of opposition to such processing,
  • the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
  • if the personal data have not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information on the origin of the data,
  • if necessary, the existence of automated decision making, including profiling and meaningful information on the logic involved, as well as the scope and intended effects of automated decision making,
  • if necessary, in the case of transfer to recipients in third countries, unless the EU Commission decides on the adequacy of the level of protection pursuant to Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR is available, information on which suitable guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 para. 2 GDPR have been provided for the protection of personal data.

6.2 Correction and completion
If you find that we have incorrect personal data from you, you can ask us to correct this incorrect data immediately. In the case of incomplete personal data concerning you, you may request the completion.
6.3 Deletion
You have a right to data deletion ("right to be forgotten"), provided that the processing is not necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression, the right to information or to fulfil a legal obligation or to perform a task which is in the public interest and one of the following reasons applies:

  • The personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • The basis of justification for the processing was exclusively your consent, which you have revoked.
  • You have filed an objection to the processing of your personal data, which we have made public.
  • You have objected to the processing of personal data not made public by us and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing.
  • The personal data has been unlawfully processed.
  • The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject.

There is no claim for deletion if deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionate effort in the case of legal, non-automated data processing due to the special type of storage and your interest in deletion is low. In this case, the restriction of processing takes the place of deletion.

6.4 Restriction of Processing
You may request us to restrict processing if one of the following reasons applies:

  • You deny the accuracy of your personal data. In this case, the restriction may be required for the duration that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
  • The processing is unlawful and instead of deletion you request the restriction of the use of your personal data.
  • We no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
  • You have objected in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR. The restriction of processing may be required as long as it is not yet clear whether our justified reasons outweigh your reasons.

Restriction of processing means that personal data will only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to inform you.

6.5 Data transferability
You have a right to data transferability, provided that the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) or Art. 9 para. 2, letter a) GDPR) or is based on a contract to which you are a contracting party and the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures. In this case, the right to data transfer includes the following rights, provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons: You can ask us to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You have the right to pass this data on to another person responsible without hindrance on our part. If technically feasible, you can request that we transfer your personal data directly to another person responsible.

6.6 Opposition
If the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1, letter e) GDPR (performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or Art. 6, para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) of the GDPR (legitimate interest of the person responsible or a third party), you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for reasons arising from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on the provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1, letter e) or letter f) GDPR. In the event of your objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedom, or the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
You may object to the processing of personal data used for direct marketing purposes at any time. This also applies to profiling in connection with such direct advertising. After exercising this right of objection, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.

You have the option of informing our company informally of your objection by telephone, email, fax or to the postal address listed at the beginning of this data protection declaration.

6.7 Revocation of consent
You have the right to withdraw your consent with future effect at any time. The revocation of the consent can be communicated informally by telephone, by email, by fax or to our postal address. The legality of the data processing, which is based on the consent until receipt of the revocation, is not affected by the revocation. After receipt of the revocation the data processing, which was based exclusively on your consent, is stopped.

6.8 Complaints
If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority responsible for the place of your stay or work or for the place of the alleged infringement.
