4.1. Within BINDER GRÖSSWANG Rechtsanwälte GmbH, only those departments or employees receive your personal data insofar as they need it for processing for the corresponding purposes. In addition, processors (IT service providers, printing services, marketing, etc.) commissioned by us receive your personal data if they require the data to perform their respective services. All contractors have been carefully selected and take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that your data is processed in accordance with data protection obligations and that your rights are protected. Furthermore, processors are not permitted to use your personal data for their own purposes.

4.2. With regard to passing on data to other third parties, we point out that such passing on only takes place on the basis of a valid legal basis and for purposes determined in advance.

5. How long will your data be stored?

5.1. We process your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to achieve the abovementioned purposes, as well as in addition in accordance with the legal obligations for storage and documentation, which result among others from the Austrian Civil Code (ABGB) and the Austrian Business Code (UGB) or for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims. 

5.2. In general, your data will be deleted after processing of the application procedure has been completed, revocation of your consent or your objection to the processing of data, provided that the storage of data is not necessary to fulfil a legal obligation or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. Further processing will only take place if you have expressly consented to the further use of your data or if we have reserved the right to process the data in excess thereof, which is permitted by law. 

5.3. It is possible that the data may be made anonymous instead of being deleted. In this case, any personal reference will be irretrievably removed, which is why the deletion obligations under data protection law also cease to apply. In this case, no personal reference can be restored.

6. What rights do you have?

In general, you have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability and objection. In such cases, please contact us.

6.1. Right to information: You can ask us to confirm whether personal data concerning you is processed. If this is the case, you have a right to information about these personal data and the information mentioned in Art. 15 (1) GDPR (such as purposes of the processing, categories of personal data).

6.2. Right of correction: You have the right to request us to correct your inaccurate personal data without undue delay.

6.3. Right of deletion: You have a right of deletion of your personal data in if e.g.

(a) the data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; or

(b) processed unlawfully; or

(c) in the case of processing based on consent by you, this consent is withdrawn.

However, the right to cancellation does not apply if the exceptions mentioned in Art. 17 (3) GDPR are applicable, for example if the processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under EU or Austrian law (e.g. statutory duty to preserve records) or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

6.4. Restriction of processing: You have a right to restrict processing if 

(a) the accuracy of your personal data is disputed (for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data),

(b) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to have the personal data deleted and instead request that the use of the personal data by us be restricted;

(c) we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you do need this data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or

(d) you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR (see below), as long as it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh yours.

6.5. Right of objection: Pursuant to Art. 21 (1 and 2) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data, if the processing of personal data 

(a) is based on protection of our legitimate interests. The data processing by us is omitted if there is a predominant interest in protection on your side. 

(b) takes place for the purpose of direct marketing. Consent thereto can be withdrawn at any time without giving reasons.

6.6. Right to data portability: You may request that the data you have provided to us be provided to you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, provided that we process such data on the basis of a revocable consent you have given or for the performance of a contract, and that such processing is carried out by means of automated procedures. You have the right to transfer this data to another controller. If technically feasible, you have the right to direct transfer of the data from one controller to another
