WWG observes the applicable legal provisions for the protection, proper handling, and confidentiality of personal data, especially the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG), the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Austrian Telecommunications Act (TKG).
This data protection policy explains the nature, scope, and purpose of us collecting and using your personal data when you visit and use our website www.wwg.co.at.

Personal data is any information relating to the data subject (natural person), who can be identified, directly or indirectly (e.g. name, email address, or IP address).

Legal basis, storage periods
Data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(a) (consent) and/or (f) (legitimate interest) GDPR.
The processed personal data is used for statistical analysis and for the purpose of operating, safeguarding and optimizing the website (legitimate interest). Any other use of your personal data (e.g. sending of newsletters) only takes place with your consent.
Unless explicitly indicated otherwise at the time of the collection of your personal data (e.g. in a declaration of consent), your personal data will be erased (or anonymized) if the retention of the personal data is no longer necessary to fulfill the purposes for which they were collected and if no statutory retention obligations (such as tax or commercial law) require us to further retain the data.
Transfer and disclosure of personal data
We will not pass on your personal data, which may have been collected on the basis of your use of the website, to third parties without your consent, unless this is necessary for the fulfillment of our obligations or is required by law/authorities.
WWG engages processors (service providers) to process personal data (within the scope of an IT support contract, for example). These processors are contractually bound to comply with the applicable data protection regulations.
This website uses plug-ins/functions of the social networks Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. These are deactivated by default for data protection reasons. You have to explicitly activate them to use them. Before activating them, please note the following information about the individual providers:
This website uses social plug-ins from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Once the plug-in is activated, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook is therefore informed that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our site directly to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate the visit to our site with your user account. Please note that we, as the site provider, do not receive any information about the content of the transferred data or its use by Facebook. For more information, see Facebook’s data policy at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php. If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to our site with your Facebook account, please log off your Facebook account.
The Google +1 button allows you to publish information worldwide. This button gives you and other users personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you gave as +1 content and information about the page that you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1s may be displayed as notices along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet.
Your rights, contact details
You are generally entitled to the rights of information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and objection. If the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
