Although we process your data only on the basis of legal provisions (GDPR, TKG 2021), you should be aware that the data transfer via the Internet can generally involve security risks and that full protection against access by third parties is therefore not feasible.

We ask you to acknowledge the following data privacy information relating to our website.

The website  (hereinafter “Website“) including all subpages can generally be used without disclosure of personal data. The webserver is hosted in Austria. This Website is owned and operated by Roßkothen Haberlander Rechtsanwälte. All contact details and further information can be found in the legal notice.

Access data

The Website operator and provider, respectively, collects Website access data and stores these as “server logfiles”. The following data are logged:

  • Website visited
  • Time of access
  • Volume of files sent in byte
  • Source/reference directing you to the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used

Data collected are used only for statistics and to improve our Website. However, the Website operator reserves the right to review server logfiles later on if there are concrete grounds suggesting unlawful use.

Personal data

If you contact us via a form on our Website or via e-mail, we will store personal data disclosed by you for six months to process your request and to respond to subsequent inquires. We will not transfer these data to third parties without your consent.

When you visit our Website, information is stored via your browser software on your computer. These tiny files are called cookies and consist of figures and letters which are downloaded onto a device (e.g. computer, smart phone) when you visit certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognise a user’s device and help remember information on preferences. Consequently, you do not need to re-type your choice of preferences whenever you visit the website again. These files cannot be traced back to a certain individual. We use cookies to enhance the user-friendliness and security of our Website.

There are different types of cookies. Our Website uses the following types of cookies:

  • Session cookies: These are temporary cookies which exist only while you access our Website or until you close your browser after visiting our Website. These cookies help us recognise information you typed on the previous page and prevents re-typing the same information.
  • Tracking cookies: We use tracking cookies to analyse the use of your Website in a meaningful way. We thereby use Google Analytics to track our Website. Permanently updated information on how Google uses cookies can be found at:

Google Analytics (with anonymisation)

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files stored on your device. Information collected by the cookies are generally sent to and stored by a Google server in the USA.

Our website uses IP anonymisation.

Under the processing agreement between the Website operator and Google Inc., Google uses the data collected to analyse Website use, Website activity and provides services related to Internet use. Google will transmit that information to third parties, if this is required by law or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google.

Google claims that they will not associate your IP address with other Google data under any circumstances. You can prevent the storage of cookies on your device by adjusting the settings of your browser. If you do so, you might not be able to benefit from the full functionality of the Website if your browser does not allow cookies.
