Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. These include, for example, your name, address, telephone number or date of birth. 

Legal basis and purpose of data processing

Your personal data will be processed only if there are legitimate reasons in the meaning of the GDPR, thus primarily for the purpose of initiating and fulfilling a contract or if mandated by law or after having obtained your explicit consent. In individual cases, we will process your personal data also on the grounds of the legitimate interests of Wiener Börse AG. Only personal data is processed that is necessary for the defined purpose such as name and email address and, if applicable, also further data disclosed during registration or when sending an inquiry or when entering into a contract or within the scope of initiating business relations or data we have obtained from publicly available sources as permitted. 

Duration of storage

Your personal data is stored only as long as this is required by law or as long as it is necessary for fulfilling the defined purpose. After the purpose has been attained or after expiry of the storage periods, your personal data is deleted without delay. 

Forwarding of personal data to third parties

Generally, your data is not forwarded to third parties unless we are under the obligation to do so by law or if the forwarding of the data is necessary for fulfilling the contract. 

An exception is made for service providers acting on behalf of Wiener Börse AG under a contract. These are, in particular, IT service providers and IT maintenance service providers who take care of the website of Wiener Börse AG as well as providers of marketing tools used, for example, to send newsletters and mailings on behalf of Wiener Börse AG. All service providers are bound by the instructions of Wiener Börse AG and are subject to strict technical and organizational security measures and must furthermore comply with data protection regulations. 

Data processing for meeting contractual and statutory obligations
