The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union, the Data Protection Act 2000 as well as the Data Protection Adaptation Act 2018 serve to protect personal data. We will exclusively process your data on the basis of the legal provisions.
This Statement describes how
Grazer Treuhand Steuerberatung GmbH & Partner KG
(Graz Trust Company, Tax Consulting)
processes your personal data. This general Data Privacy Statement does not apply to our existing and former clients, parties interested and potential future clients or their respective partners and shareholders, organs and other employees. This is due to the fact that there is a separate Data Privacy Statement for Clients for these parties.
If you give a mandate to us, our Data Privacy Statement for Clients, which we will send you without being asked and right upon signature of the mandate, will apply.
Use for the Intended Purpose, Legal Basis, Saving Period as well as Data Recipients
The personal data collected will be used for purposes of performing the contract, invoicing and asserting the contractual claims. For this, the data will be acquired, saved, processed and utilised.
Processing of your personal data is based upon the legal bases of performance of a contract, legitimate interest as well as upon compliance with our legal and/or contractual obligations.
The period for which your personal data will be processed covers the period of the whole business relationship (from initiation via handling to the end of a contract). Beyond this, it is subject to the legal retention and documentation duties which result from the UGB (“Unternehmensgesetzbuch” – Company Code) (UGB) and the BAO (“Bundesabgabenordnung” – Federal Fiscal Code) and other legal provisions. Moreover, this period will apply until the end of a possible legal dispute.
Our clients’ and suppliers’ personal data can be passed on to various processors (IT service providers and cloud services, cooperation partners, advertising agencies and printshops). While personal data is being passed on like this, processors can pass on data themselves – and can thus pass data on to sub-contractors.
Data will exclusively be passed on for performing the contract and for asserting and fulfilling our rights and duties resulting from this. Furthermore, it should be noted that personal data will exclusively be passed on with explicit consent given by the party concerned. The processors have undertaken towards us to comply with the applicable rules of data protection law (Processor Contract acc. to Article 28 of the GDPR (Processor)).
If you have applied for a job advertised and no employment contract is concluded due to this, we will retain your application documents for no more than six months after the job advertised has been filled.
Unsolicited job applications will be retained for no more than three months upon receipt.
A longer retention of your application documents necessitates your consent, which you can revoke, at any time.
Consent and Right of Revocation
If your consent is necessary for processing of your personal data, we will exclusively process your personal data with your explicit consent.
You can revoke your consent at firstname.lastname@example.org, at any time. This revocation will apply to any future processing of your personal data. Lawfulness of processing done up to that moment won’t be affected. Legal retention periods will have to be taken into account by us.
We reserve the right to continue to use data saved by us in an anonymised form for statistical purposes without making reference to persons.
Grazer Treuhand Steuerberatung GmbH & Partner KG (Trust Company, Tax Consulting) uses technical and organisational safety and security controls in order to protect personal data saved from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss or destruction and access of unauthorised persons. Our safety and security controls are continually being improved in line with technical process.
Among other things, you shall be entitled (i) to review whether we process personal data about you and, if so, which ones and to be provided with copies of this data, (ii) to demand rectification, supplementation or erasure of your personal data if this data is wrong or is processed in a manner that is not legally compliant, (iii) to ask us to restrict processing of your personal data, (iv) under certain circumstances, to object to processing of your personal data or to revoke consent given to processing before, a revocation not affecting lawfulness of processing performed before this revocation, (v) to demand data portability as far as you are our client, (vi) to know the identity of third parties to which your personal data is forwarded, and (vii) to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority.
Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data during your next visit by clicking on this link.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
