Security measures

VIENNA HOUSE respects the privacy of the users of its website. It is very important to us that data that could lead to your identity being uncovered is provided with special protection. VIENNA HOUSE's goal is to always meet the expectations of our customers for our products and services. This also includes handling the data entrusted to us as part of the customer relationship with the greatest care and due diligence. We are obliged to protect your data in accordance with applicable data protection laws. This also applies with respect to our collaboration with partners and third parties.

This is why we are constantly working to review and improve our technical and physical safety rules. We have implemented security measures within an Information Security Management System – "ISMS" for short – by means of rules and precautions in order to protect your personal data against unintentional loss, misuse or changes on all websites and servers operated by VIENNA HOUSE while it is subject to our control.

We ensure compliance with legal data protection requirements through regular training sessions for our personnel and by subjecting our employees and commissioned external data processors in writing to maintain data confidentiality.

Minors

We do not intend to gather personal data concerning minors without authorisation; however, we cannot always verify the age of individuals who access and use our websites. If a minor transmits their data to us without the consent of their guardian, we ask their guardian to contact us so that we can delete said data and prevent the minor from being contacted by us (e.g. advertising material). Contact: [email protected]

Data protection information according to customer groups

We have created separate data protection policies for our customer groups to fulfil our obligations to provide information on data protection and to improve readability and transparency. Clicking on the links displayed for the customer group "Data protection information" will take the user to the associated document.

The customer group-specific data protection information provides detailed information on
  • Who we are and how you can get in contact with us
  • To which products the data protection information refers
  • Which categories of personal data we process
  • The sources from which we draw data
  • The purposes for which we process personal data (including within the corporate group as a whole)
  • The legal basis upon which we do this
  • To whom we may pass personal data
  • How long we store personal data
  • The rights to which you are entitled with respect to the processed personal data
If it is stated in the data protection information that we perform data processing on the basis of your consent, this of course depends on you having issued your consent effectively. If there is no consent, we will not process data concerning your person that requires your consent.

Our online offerings (websites) can of course also be visited without providing any personal information. However, their use, also by registered users, involves the saving of access data which is not personally identifiable (e.g. name of the Internet service providers, the site visited by the user prior to visiting the website, the anonymised IP address, date and time of the visit). You can find data protection information on this type of data processing under „Cookie information“. This information also features details on "social plug-ins" using which the content of our website can be shared with other websites.
