An IP address is a specific number assigned to your computer that enables your device to communicate on a network using Internet Protocol (IP).

We may also process them as part of forensic investigations in the event of a security incident or to create anonymized user statistics (legal basis: Art 6 para 1 lit f DSGVO – legitimate interest in maintaining the functionality, stability and security of our website).

Our website uses Google Analytics,[e] provided by Google Ireland Limited, Registration Number: 368047, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”), which enables us to analyze the use of our website.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address and the URLs of the pages visited) may be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. The USA does not have an adequate level of data protection and there is a risk that US authorities may gain access to your data.
Our website uses an IP anonymization function provided by Google Analytics. Your IP address will therefore be shortened/anonymized by Google immediately upon receipt. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Under no circumstances will Google merge your IP address with other data.

IV. To whom do we transfer your personal data?
When operating our website, we also use external IT service providers who process personal data on our behalf as processors within the meaning of Art. 4 Z 8 DSGVO. We use the following categories of processors:
a) Service providers on whose servers our website is operated. b) Service providers who maintain the website on our behalf. c) Service providers on whose servers our appointment scheduling tools are operated. d) Service providers responsible for processing the contact forms .
We oblige these service providers in a contract pursuant to Art 28 DSGVO to adequately protect your personal data.
Some of these service providers may process data in the USA. The EU Commission and the Court of Justice of the European Union have not attested to an adequate level of data protection in the USA. In particular, there is a risk that this data may be subject to access by local authorities or courts for control and monitoring purposes under the applicable provisions and that no effective legal remedies are available against this.
However, when we transfer personal data to such third countries, we implement appropriate security safeguards to ensure that your rights are protected in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR. This includes the conclusion of the standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data published by the EU Commission (Art 46 para 2 lit c DSGVO). Further details about the security guarantees used as well as copies of the respective agreements are available upon request at email@example.com.[f]
In addition, data may be transferred to a third country with your express consent (Art 49 para 1 lit a DSGVO). In the context of the cookies used on our website, we or third-party providers may also process personal data. These third-party providers also include Google LLC, which is based in the USA and processes data there. Before we set cookies and transfer your data to Google LLC, we ask for your express consent (Art 6 para 1 lit a DSGVO in conjunction with Art 49 para 1 lit a DSGVO). Corresponding information on the individual cookies regarding purposes, data categories and storage duration can be found above under point III. 3. You can revoke your consent to cookies at any time with effect for the future by deleting them in your browser.
V. How long will your personal data be stored?
Log files are generally retained for a period of 14 days. Beyond this period, log files are only stored for the purpose of investigating irregularities or security incidents in our systems. For the storage period of cookies, see point III.3 above.
Apart from that, we only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary for the fulfillment of the purpose for which they were collected. In any case, we therefore store your data for the duration of our contractual or service relationship with you. In addition, we store your personal data in accordance with further statutory retention periods. (e.g. retention obligation under tax law according to § 132 Abs 1 BAO: 7 years, beyond that as long as they are of importance for the tax authority in pending proceedings/ retention obligation under company law according to §§ 190, 212 UGB: 7 years/ retention obligation under turnover tax law for invoices according to § 11 Abs 2 UStG: 7 years).
