Protecting your personal data and your privacy is especially important to us. Thus, we only process your data on the basis of the legal regulations [order (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and the Council on April 27th, 2016 for the protection of natural persons in the processing of personal data, free movement of data and the cancellation of the guideline 95/46/EG (DSGVO), Data Protection Act 2018 (DSG 2018), Telecommunications Act2003 (TKG 2003)].
In this data protection declaration, we inform you about the processing activities of your personal data in the course of our website and our activities as lawyers.
If you contact us via the form on the website or via e-mail, your stated data will be stored in our system for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. The personal data is deleted when it is no longer required or the deletion does not contradict any legal duties to preserve the information.
Cookies are small text files which are stored in the temporary storage of your browser (Browser Cache). By means of the stored character string, a webserver can recognise you as a recurring user. In connection with the tracing of user activities (user tracking), cookies are a necessary component which enable specific functions of a website to carry out user tracking. The cookie itself does not take any action.
Generally, every market-leading browser provides detailed configuration options for the accepting and refusing of cookies as well as the management of the browser cache. It is advisable for the end user to determine his/her preferences regarding cookies and data protection there centrally, instead of leaving the responsibility up to the website owner. For further information, you can refer to the respective help files or ask an IT service provider.
According to the valid data protection regulations, we are obliged to point out the implementation of third party cookies by google, should you generally agree to the implementation of cookies (see section Google Analytics). For the sake of completeness, we also point out that also session cookies are implemented, which is required by the firewall to safeguard the website and is therefore imperative. Therefore, personal data is only stored for user accounts. Visitors of a website remain unaffected. Thus, cookies are placed in accordance with the European and Austrian legal situation (Art 5, section 3 E-Privacy-RL as well as § 96 section 3 TKG 2003).

Neuwirth Neurauter uses IP anonymisation, which means that your IP address is abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the agreement on the European Economic Area. The anonymised IP address, which is transferred by the browser in the course of Google Analytics, is not merged with other Google data in order to ensure that no conclusions can be drawn on your person. This ensures that the collected data no longer requires special protection by the DSVGO as personal data.
We refrain from using the mode of operation “Universal Analytics”. With that, it would be possible to match data, sessions and interactions with a pseudonym user ID via several appliances and to thereby analyse the activities of a user across multiple devices.
Data which we send to Google is deleted automatically after 14 months. The deletion of data, where the safekeeping period is fulfilled, is carried out automatically once a month.
You have the following possibilities to prohibit user tracking by Google Analytics:
Notice: If you delete cookies in your browser cache, these settings are lost and must be set anew.
Apart from Google Analytics, the website is also analysed by the Open Source Software Webalizer on the server of our hosting provider under our own domain. No data is passed on to third parties.
According to domainfactory GmbH, the webserver logfiles are rotated daily. Logs from the previous day are stored and are available for three days each. These are purely internal logfiles which we as customers do not have access to. This data ensures data backup and retrieval of our website in the event of malfunctions of our website. We have concluded the according contract on contract data processing with the domainfactory GmbH.
