The Law Office of Manfred Keller ("RAK") only collects, processes and uses your personal data with your consent or mandate or order for the purposes agreed with you or if there is another legal basis in accordance with the GDPR; this is done in compliance with the provisions of data protection and civil law.
We only collect personal data that is necessary for the performance and processing of our legal services or personal data that you have voluntarily provided to us.
Personal data include all data that contain individual details about personal or factual circumstances, for example name, address, e--mail address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, social security number, video recordings, photos, voice recordings of persons as well as biometric data such as fingerprints. Sensitive data, such as health data or data related to criminal proceedings, may also be included.
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 a right to rectify data, transmit data, object to the use of data, to restrict the processing of data as well as block or delete incorrect or unlawfully processed data.
If there are any 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. Provided that this does not involve a disproportionate effort, your request for information, a deletion, a correction, an objection and/or data transfer, in the latter case, may be addressed to the address of the law firm indicated in this statement.
If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data by us violates the applicable data protection law or that your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you have the possibility to complain to the competent supervisory authority. In Austria, the competent authority is the data protection authority.
Your personal data is protected by appropriate organisational and technical precautions. These precautions especially relate to protection against unauthorised, illegal 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 are therefore not able to accept any liability whatsoever for the disclosure of information due to errors in data transmission not caused by us and/or unauthorised access by third parties (e.g. hacking attack on an e-mail account or via the telephone, interception of faxes).
USE OF DATA
We will not process the data provided to us for purposes other than those covered by the mandate agreement, your consent or otherwise by a provision in accordance with the GDPR. This excludes use of the data for statistical purposes, provided that the data that is provided has been anonymised.
TRANSFER OF DATA TO THIRD PARTIES
In order to fulfil your order, it may also be necessary to forward your data to third parties (e.g. the other party, substitutes, insurance companies, service providers that we use and those to whom we make data available, etc.), courts or authorities. Your data will only be forwarded on the basis of the GDPR, especially for the fulfilment 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 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 where we take steps to ensure that all recipients have an adequate level of data protection. In which case, we enter into standard contractual clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC).
DISCLOSURE OF DATA BREACHES
We will endeavour 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 that are involved.
RETENTION OF DATA
We will not retain data for longer than is necessary to fulfil our contractual / legal obligations and to defend against any liability claims.
