MMRA undertakes to treat all personal data in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations, including the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG), and the Austrian Telecommunications Act (TKG).


MMRA as a provider of legal services is subject to professional legal privilege and confidentiality obligations. MMRA may therefore be legally prohibited from providing detailed information about the data processed by MMRA on behalf of its clients.

Categories of Data Processed

MMRA may process various categories of personal data as required to meet the purposes of the processing of personal data by MMRA (names, birth dates, other identification data, residential or business addresses, contact details, financial information, bank details, company registration and tax identification numbers, information in relation to the matters that are the subject of the client-attorney relationship or other contractual relationships with MMRA).

Purposes of Processing of Data

Client-Attorney Relationship

MMRA processes personal data in the context of the client-attorney relationship for the following purposes (see Article 6(1) GDPR):

— For the performance of the legal and contractually agreed services provided under the client-attorney relationship or in preparation of the client-attorney relationship;
— In order to comply with legal obligations to which MMRA is subject;
— For the administration and management of MMRA’s business (including, e.g., accounting, client file administration, maintenance of a client database)

Data Transfers and Data Recipients

MMRA transfers personal data only subject to a valid legal basis and subject to MMRA’s duty of professional confidentiality. MMRA transfers personal data to the extent required for a legitimate purpose and subject to applicable legal obligations or subject to the consent of the person who has provided the personal data to MMRA.

To the extent personal data are transferred by MMRA to jurisdictions outside the European Economic Area (EEA), MMRA will transfer personal data only to jurisdictions for which the European Commission has determined that they provide for an adequate level of data protection or, alternatively, MMRA will take measures to ensure that all data recipients provide for an adequate level of data protection (e.g. through the conclusion of standard contractual clauses). As a general rule, MMRA will transfer data to jurisdictions outside the EEA only to the extent necessary for the performance of the client-attorney relationship and in all other cases only subject to the consent of the person whose personal data are transferred (see Article 49(1)(a) and (b) GDPR).

Recipients of personal data transferred by MMRA subject to these conditions may include, but are not limited to, other attorneys or law firms with whom MMRA collaborates, providers of services in connection with the prevention of money laundering, tax consultants and auditors, financial institutions such as banks or insurance companies, public authorities and courts, bar associations, or providers of various services to MMRA or its clients (e.g., courier services, travel agencies, hotels). 

Duration of Data Processing

MMRA retains or processes personal data only for as long as the data are required for the purposes for which MMRA processes the data and to comply with MMRA’s contractual and/or legal obligations. Personal data will be stored and processed for the duration of the client-attorney or other contractual relationship and for the duration of applicable statutory retention periods and, if applicable, for as long as there are other legitimate interests to process the data (e.g. to exercise rights of defence against legal claims).

Rights of the Data Subjects
