Despite the greatest possible care, we cannot assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and up-to-dateness of the contents of the website of the law firm Dr. Michael Komuczky. We reserve the right to make changes. The contents are for general information purposes only and do not replace legal advice!
Liability for links
We assume no liability for the content of linked pages.
All contents and works on our pages are subject to copyright. Any kind of distribution requires our written consent (unless otherwise stated and within the scope of the validity of copyright law).
1. Personal data
We, the law firm Dr. Michael Komuczky, collect, process and use your personal data within the scope of our law firm operations 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 GDPR. If you are an opponent of our clients, we use your data to the extent permitted by law. We always comply with the applicable data protection and civil law provisions.
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 are all data that contain individual information about personal or factual circumstances, for example name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, national insurance 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.
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 be informed 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 correction, data transmission, objection, restriction of processing and blocking or deletion of incorrect or inadmissibly processed data.
If there are any changes to your personal data, please 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, deletion, correction, 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 stated in point 9 of this declaration.
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 rights have been violated in another way, you have the possibility to complain to the competent supervisory authority. In Austria, the competent authority is the data protection authority.
3. Data security
Your personal data is protected by appropriate organisational and technical precautions. These precautions relate in particular to protection against unauthorised, illegal or even accidental access, processing, loss, use and manipulation.
Notwithstanding efforts to maintain an appropriately high level of due diligence at all times, it cannot be excluded that information you disclose to us via the Internet may be viewed and used by others.
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 unauthorised access by third parties (e.g. hacking attack on email account or telephone, interception of faxes).
4. Use of the 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. An exception to this is the use for statistical purposes, provided that the data provided has been anonymised.
5. Transmission 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 we use and to whom we make data available, etc.), courts or authorities. Your data will only be forwarded on the basis of the GDPR, in particular 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, we regularly obtain factual and case-related information from third parties.
Some of the recipients of your personal data mentioned above 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 as amended from time to time.
6. Disclosure of data breaches
We strive to ensure that data breaches are identified at an early stage and, where appropriate, reported immediately to you or the relevant supervisory authority, including the relevant categories of data involved.
7. Retention of data
We will not retain data for longer than is necessary to fulfil our contractual or legal obligations and to defend against any liability claims.
8. Server log files
In order to optimise our website in terms of system performance, user-friendliness and the provision of useful information about our services, the website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files that your browser automatically transmits to us. This includes your internet protocol address (IP address), browser and language setting, operating system, referrer URL, your internet service provider and date/time.
This data is not merged with personal data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.
9. Our contact details
