Collection of data
Data provided by you
Generally speaking, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. If personal data (e.g. name, telephone number or email addresses) are collected on this website via the enquiry form, this takes place on a voluntary basis.
In order to continually optimise our services, the website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics services of Google Inc. (“Google”).
Google Analytics of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of the use of our website by its users in an aggregated form. As a rule, the information collected by the cookie on your user behaviour is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the IP anonymisation that is activated on this website, within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address is abbreviated by Google prior to this. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, create reports on the website activities and provide further services in connection with the use of the website and of the internet.

Server log files
As is customary for almost all internet pages, the server on which our websites are located automatically collects information in web server logs when you visit us on the internet. The web server automatically stores specific, non-personal data, namely the IP address, browser type, the domain names, access times and referring website addresses.
Pursuant to § 25 Para. (4) Line 8 Telecommunications Act 2003, the provider of the website is obliged to take measures for reacting to violations of security or integration. For this reason, the IP addresses that access our website are stored by the provider for 14 days.
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are temporarily deposited on your computer and that your browser stores following your express consent. They do no harm. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.
What is the use and storage duration of the personal data?
The data processing occurs on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 Para. 3 Telecommunications Act as well as Art. 6 Para. 1 of the GDPR.
We only store and process your personal data in connection with the transaction of your enquiry or, in the event of an apartment booking, in connection with the transaction of the ensuing contract. If you get in contact with us using the form on the website or via email, the data you provide will be stored by us for six months for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case there are any follow-up questions. If a contract is concluded, all data from the contractual relationship are stored until the expiry of the fiscal retention period (7 years).
Disclosure of these data occurs only to the minimum extent necessary if required for the transaction of the contract, if there is a legal basis or if there is legitimate interest in the business dealings of participating third parties.
Potential recipients may be: departments of our company that are involved in the business transactions (e.g. IT, accounting or other administrative units) or third parties involved in the business transactions as contractors (e.g. IT infrastructure companies) or service providers (e.g. tax advisors, payroll accounting, lawyers) as well as authorities (social insurance, tax office, other authorities).
You principally have the rights to information, rectification, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection rights have been violated in some other way, you may lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. In Austria this is the data protection authority.
We employ a wide range of data security measures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of your personal information. Due to the nature of the internet, however, we would like to point out that the transfer of data on the internet may involve gaps in security (e.g. during email communication) and that the absolute protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
The data controller responsible for the processing of your personal data is:
Apartment VM GmbH, 1160 Vienna, Thaliastraße 32/1/22
