1. Personal Data
We, FIZIMAYER Attorneys-at-Law, collect, process and use your personal data only with your consent or mandate or order for the purposes agreed with you or if there is another legal basis in accordance with the DSGVO; this in compliance with the provisions of data protection and civil law.
We only collect personal data that is required for the performance and processing of our legal services or that you have voluntarily provided to us.
Personal data is any data that contains individual information about personal or factual circumstances, such as name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, social security number, video recordings, photographs, voice recordings of individuals, and biometric data such as fingerprints. Sensitive data, such as health data or data related to criminal proceedings, may also be included.
2. Information and Deletion
As a client or, more generally, as a data subject, you have the right – subject to the lawyer’s duty of confidentiality – to obtain information at any time about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing, as well as the right to rectification, data transfer, objection, restriction of processing and blocking or deletion of incorrect or inadmissibly processed data.
Insofar as there are changes to your personal data, we request that you inform us accordingly.
You have the right to revoke your consent to the use of your personal data at any time. Your request for information, cancellation, rectification, objection and/or data transfer, in the latter case provided that this does not involve a disproportionate effort, may be addressed to the address of the law firm indicated in point 10 of this statement.
If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data by us violates applicable data protection law or that your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you have the option of complaining to the competent supervisory authority. In Austria, the data protection authority is responsible for this.
3. Data Security
Your personal data is protected by appropriate organizational and technical precautions. These precautions relate in particular to protection against unauthorized, unlawful or even accidental access, processing, loss, use and manipulation.
Notwithstanding our efforts to maintain an appropriately high level of due diligence at all times, it cannot be ruled out that information you disclose to us via the Internet may be viewed and used by other persons.
Please note that we therefore accept no liability whatsoever for the disclosure of information due to errors in data transmission not caused by us and/or unauthorized access by third parties (e.g. hacking attack on email account or telephone, interception of faxes).
4. Use of data
We will not process the data provided to us for purposes other than those covered by the mandate agreement or by your consent or otherwise by a provision in accordance with the GDPR. This excludes the use for statistical purposes, provided that the data provided has been anonymized.
5. Transfer of data to third parties
In order to fulfill your order, it may also be necessary to forward your data to third parties (e.g. opposing parties, substitutes, insurance companies, service providers we use and to whom we provide data, etc.) courts or authorities. Your data will only be forwarded on the basis of the DSGVO, in particular for the fulfillment of your order or on the basis of your prior consent.
Furthermore, we inform you that in the course of our legal representation and support, factual and case-related information is also regularly obtained from third parties.
Some of the above-mentioned recipients of your personal data are located outside your country or process your personal data there. The level of data protection in other countries may not be the same as in Austria. However, we only transfer your personal data to countries for which the EU Commission has decided that they have an adequate level of data protection or we take measures to ensure that all recipients have an adequate level of data protection for which we conclude standard contractual clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC).
Unless otherwise instructed by the client in writing, the lawyer shall be entitled to handle the e-mail correspondence with the client via the e-mail addresses used by the client in a non-encrypted form. The client declares to be informed about the risks involved (in particular access, secrecy, alteration of messages in the course of transmission) and about the possibility of using TrustNetz and, being aware of these risks, agrees that the e-mail traffic shall not be conducted in encrypted form.
6. Disclosure of data breaches
We strive to ensure that data breaches are identified at an early stage and, where appropriate, reported to you or the relevant supervisory authority without delay, including the relevant categories of data involved.
7. Retention of data
We will not retain data longer than is necessary to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations and to defend against any liability claims.
