We at OBLIN Attorneys at Law, Josefstädter Straße 11, 1080 Vienna (hereinafter: “OBLIN”), take the protection of your personal data seriously. OBLIN treats your personal data confidentially and comply with the applicable legal data protection regulations, in particular the Data Protection Act (DSG), the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the Telecommunications Act (TKG) as well as this Privacy Policy.

What is personal data?

Personal data is information about data subjects (natural persons) whose identity is determined or determinable. Examples of such data are name, date of birth, address, e-mail address, telephone number, gender, social security number, but also photos, video recordings as well as biometric data such as fingerprints. Sensitive data, such as health data or data related to criminal proceedings, may also be included.

Processing and use of personal data

OBLIN collects, process and use your personal data only if there is a legal basis for doing so in accordance with the GDPR or only with your consent or assignment for the purposes agreed with you. Only data that are necessary for the implementation and processing of my legal services or that you have voluntarily provided to me will be processed.

If you contact us via the contact form on the website, by telephone, e-mail or fax, OBLIN will process the personal data provided by you (title, name, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number as well as any other disclosed data and transmitted documents and certificates) for the purpose of processing your request. OBLIN processes this data for the fulfillment of (pre-)contractual obligations or on the basis of legitimate interests.

OBLIN points out that data transmission on the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Passing on of personal data

In order to fulfill your order, it may also be necessary to forward your data to third parties (e.g. opposing parties, substitutes, insurance companies, service providers that I use and to whom we provide data, etc.) or to courts or authorities. Your data will only be forwarded on the basis of the DSGVO, in particular for the fulfillment of your order or on the basis of your prior consent.

In the context of my legal representation and support, it is also regularly necessary to obtain factual and case-related information from you from third parties. This is all in accordance with the relevant data protection regulations.

If you do not want this, you can set your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you allow this only in individual cases. If you disable cookies, the functionality of my website may be limited.

Web analytics services (tracking)

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies to analyze visitor behavior on my website. The information generated by Google is usually stored on a Google server in the USA or in other states outside the USA.

The use of Google Analytics is in the interest of an appealing presentation of my online offers and represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

Adobe Fonts

Google Maps

OBLIN integrates the maps (“Google Maps”) of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

OBLIN has no influence on this data transmission.

Server log files

For operational security reasons, the hosting provider collects data about access to the site and stores them as server log files. These log files are stored for four weeks and then deleted. The statistical analysis of accesses provided by the provider does not contain an IP address.

TLS encryption with https

We use HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure stands for “secure hypertext transfer protocol”) to transfer data over the internet in a tap-proof way.

This means that the complete transmission of all data from your browser to our web server is secured – no one can “listen in”.

Thus, we have implemented an additional layer of security and fulfill data protection by design of technology Article 25(1) DSGVO). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data.

You can recognize the use of this protection of data transmission by the small lock symbol at the top left of the browser to the left of the Internet address (e.g., and the use of the scheme https (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.

Google Fonts Privacy Policy

On our website we use Google Fonts. These are the “Google Fonts” of the company Google Inc. For the European area the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services.

For the use of Google Fonts you do not have to log in or provide a password. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested via the Google domains and According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google account, you do not need to worry that your Google account information, while using Google Fonts, will be transmitted to Google. Google records the usage of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this data securely.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is called up. To delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at Data storage you prevent in this case only if you do not visit our site.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unlimited access to all fonts. So we can have unlimited access to a sea of fonts and get the most out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other issues at Google does address privacy-related issues there, but it doesn’t really include detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult to get really precise information from Google about stored data.

Vimeo privacy policy

We also use videos from the company Vimeo on our website. The video portal is operated by Vimeo LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. With the help of a plug-in, we can show you interesting video material directly on our website. In the process, certain data may be transferred from you to Vimeo. In this privacy policy, we will show you what data is involved, why we use Vimeo and how you can manage or prevent your data or the data transfer.

What data is stored on Vimeo?

When you call up a page on our website that has a Vimeo video embedded, your browser connects to the servers of Vimeo. This results in a data transmission. This data is collected, stored, and processed on the Vimeo servers. Regardless of whether you have a Vimeo account or not, Vimeo collects data about you. This includes your IP address, technical info about your browser type, operating system or very basic device information. Furthermore, Vimeo stores information about which website you use the Vimeo service and which actions (web activities) you perform on our website. These web activities include, for example, session duration, bounce rate or which button you clicked on our website with built-in Vimeo function. Vimeo may track and store these actions using cookies and similar technologies.

If you are logged into Vimeo as a registered member, more data can usually be collected because more cookies may have already been set in your browser. In addition, your actions on our website are directly linked to your Vimeo account. To prevent this you must, while “surfing” our website, log out of Vimeo.

Google reCAPTCHA Privacy Policy

Our primary goal is to secure and protect our website for you and for us in the best possible way. To ensure this, we use Google reCAPTCHA of the company Google Inc. For the European area, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With reCAPTCHA we can determine whether you are really a flesh and blood human being and not a robot or other spam software. By spam we mean any unsolicited information sent to us electronically. With the classic CAPTCHAS, you usually had to solve text or image puzzles to verify the information. With reCAPTCHA from Google, we usually don’t have to bother you with such puzzles. Here, in most cases, it is enough to simply check a box to confirm that you are not a bot. With the new Invisible reCAPTCHA version, you don’t even have to set a checkmark anymore.

How long and where is the data stored?

By inserting reCAPTCHA, data is transferred from you to the Google server. Where exactly this data is stored, Google does not make clear, even after repeated requests. Without having received confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction, time spent on the website or language settings are stored on Google’s European or American servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google is generally not merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. The deviating data protection provisions of the Google company apply to this.

Duration of storage of personal data

OBLIN stores your data only as long as I need them to fulfill the purposes already outlined and my contractual or legal obligations. If your personal data is no longer needed, it will be deleted or anonymized so that you can no longer be identified. OBLIN will not keep data longer than necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual or legal obligations and for the defense of any liability claims.

Data security

The protection of your personal data is ensured by appropriate technical and organizational security measures. Despite all efforts, however, it cannot be ruled out that information OBLIN receives from you via the Internet can be viewed by third parties. Therefore, OBLIN cannot assume any liability whatsoever for the disclosure of information due to errors in data transmission not caused by me and/or unauthorized access by third parties (e.g. hacking of the e-mail account).

Information, change of data and deletion

As a data subject, you have the right to information at any time, about the personal data processed by OBLIN about you.

You also have the right to correct incorrect data and, under certain circumstances, to delete your data. If the processing of personal data is based on your consent, you may revoke your consent to the processing of personal data with effect for the future. You may have the right to obtain the personal data you have provided in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You have the possibility to contact a data protection supervisory authority with your possible complaint (in Austria: Austrian Data Protection Authority).

Insofar as there are changes to your personal data, OBLIN requests that you notify me accordingly.

Your rights

You have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation, and opposition. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in a way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.

Data mishaps

OBLIN strives to ensure that data breaches are identified at an early stage and, if necessary, reported immediately to you or the competent supervisory authority, including the respective categories of data involved.
