Privacy policy

1. personal data

MAD Handels GmbH collects, processes and uses your personal data only with your consent or order for the purposes agreed with you or if there is another legal basis in accordance with the GDPR; this is done in compliance with data protection and civil law provisions.

We only collect personal data that is necessary for the performance and processing of our services or that you have provided to us voluntarily.

Personal data is all data that contains individual details about personal or factual circumstances, such as name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, social security number, video recordings, photos, voice recordings of people and biometric data such as fingerprints.

2. information and deletion

As a user or generally as a data subject, you have the right to information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing as well as a right to rectification, data transfer, objection, restriction of processing and blocking or erasure of incorrect or inadmissibly processed data at any time.

If there are any changes to your personal data, please inform us accordingly.

You have the right to withdraw 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 cause a disproportionate effort, can be sent to the address of the company stated in point 10 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 your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you have the option of complaining to the competent supervisory authority. In Austria, the data protection authority is responsible for this.

3. data security

Your personal data is protected by appropriate organizational and technical precautions. These precautions relate in particular to protection against unauthorized, unlawful or accidental access, processing, loss, use and manipulation.

Notwithstanding our efforts to maintain an appropriately high level of due diligence at all times, it cannot be ruled out that information that you disclose to us via the Internet may be viewed and used by other persons.

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 unauthorized 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 your consent or otherwise by a provision in accordance with the GDPR. This does not apply to use for statistical purposes, provided that the data provided has been anonymized.

5. transmission of data to third parties

In order to fulfill your order, it may also be necessary to forward your data to third parties (e.g. counterparties, substitutes, insurance companies, service providers that 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 to fulfill your order or on the basis of your prior consent.

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 (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC).

6. disclosure of data breaches

We endeavor to ensure that data breaches are identified at an early stage and, if necessary, reported immediately to you or the competent supervisory authority, taking into account the respective data categories that are affected.

7. storage of the data

We will not store data for longer than is necessary to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations and to defend against any liability claims.
