Responsible for data processing

SHP is responsible for the processing of your personal data. If you need more information you can always contact us. Our contact details can be found at the end of this Privacy Policy.


Personal data and purposes of processing

Personal data is any data that contains information about personal or material circumstances, such as name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, social security number, video recordings, photos, etc.

We collect, process and use your personal data only if this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or due to a legal obligation or if you voluntarily provide us with this data. For data processing beyond this, we obtain your consent before processing the data. If our interest in data processing legitimately outweighs the interest in data protection, the processing may also take place without your consent.

We will use the data made available to us in particular for the purpose of fulfilling the contract, initiating an agreement, fulfilling legal obligations, for internal marketing purposes and for internal marketing purposes.

As far as changes of your personal data arise, we ask for appropriate notice.


Data processing when contacting

If you contact us via the form on the website or by e-mail, your data will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. SHP will not share this information without your consent.


Legal basis of processing

SHP processes your data because this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract with you (Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO / GDPR). Insofar as this requirement is not met, we process your data only insofar as this is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests and does not outweigh your interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO / GDPR). In addition, we process your data only if you have given us your consent to the data processing.


Your rights

 As a data subject, you have the right at any time to obtain information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to rectification, data transfer, opposition, restriction of processing and blocking or deletion of incorrect or inadmissibly processed data. You have the right at any time to revoke your consent to the use of your personal data.

If you believe that the processing of your personal data by us violates the applicable data protection law, it is possible to complain to the competent supervisory authority. In Austria, the data protection authority is responsible for this. You can reach them by post at the Austrian Data Protection Authority, Hohenstaufengasse 3, 1010 Vienna, or by e-mail:, or by phone: +43 (0)1 531 15 20 25 25.


Data security

The protection of your personal data takes place through appropriate organizational and technical precautions. These precautions relate in particular to protection against unauthorized, unlawful or accidental access, processing, loss, use and manipulation.

Notwithstanding compliance with a reasonable standard of care, it cannot be ruled out that personal data may be viewed and used by other persons. Please note that we therefore accept no liability whatsoever for the disclosure of information due to non-caused errors in data transmission and / or unauthorized access by third parties (eg hacking on email account or telephone, interception of faxes).


Transmission of data to third parties

SHP transmits your data to third parties, if we are legally obliged to transmit. Furthermore, we will transfer your data to third parties, provided that you have consented to the transfer to third parties, for example, in the context of an agreement with us or the third party, or the data transmission to fulfill our contract with you is required, such as in the case of data transmission to a project working professionals, construction supervision, other specialist planners or the like.

In addition, to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations, it may be necessary to transfer your data to the processor. Processors process your personal information in a directive-bound manner and only to the extent necessary to perform these tasks. Our processors, for example, are tax consultants, IT service providers or other external service companies, etc. If necessary, we will seek your consent before submitting your data.

However, we only transfer your personal data to recipients within the European Union or to countries for which the EU Commission has decided that they have an appropriate level of data protection.
