Google Analytics uses cookies. Your IP address is recorded through the use of cookies as part of Google Analytics. However, as soon as it is technically possible, the IP addresses of visitors to this website are shortened and thus made anonymous before they are saved or analyzed. The anonymization takes place within the European Union or within the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Passing on data to service providers: We may also provide access to your personal data to service providers located in the European Economic Area ("EEA") who we engage to process the data collected on our website, its services or content in as well as hosting or maintaining according to our Privacy Policy. We will notify you if we intend to transfer your personal information to a service provider based outside of the EEA. If we commission external companies or persons to process personal data that they have not collected themselves but provided by us, they will only use the personal data within the scope of the commissioned order in accordance with our instructions and the provisions of this data protection declaration.

You can request a copy of the contracts concluded in this case from us at the following email address: {office@wewalka.at}; or if you have consented to the transfer or if we have another legal basis for the transfer.

VI. How long do we store personal data?

Normally we keep your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected in accordance with this data protection declaration.
