Data Protection Statement
«ÖTI – Institut für Ökologie, Technik und Innovation GmbH», Spengergasse 20, 1050 Wien, is delighted that you have visited its website. We attach great importance to the protection of your personal data. We therefore process your data strictly as stipulated by the relevant legal provisions. This data protection statement provides you with information regarding the main aspects of data processing in the context of our website.
Collecting data in order to process inquiries
If you contact us via a form on the website or by e-mail we store the data you provide in order to process your inquiry and for any follow-up queries until you request us to delete them. This is done on the basis of our mutual interest in being able to process your inquiry. We pass these data on to other group companies if this is necessary for the response to your inquiry. If in the process we transmit your personal data outside the EU, the European Economic Area or Switzerland we take appropriate steps to protect them, such as standard contract clauses, which we are glad to show you on request. We do not otherwise pass these data on to third parties without your consent. You are not obliged to provide personal data, but it may not then be possible for us to respond to you if we do not receive sufficient information.
Collecting data for the newsletter
You can subscribe to our newsletter via our website. For this we need your e-mail address and consent. In order to provide you with appropriate information we also collect and process the information on your fields of interest which you provide voluntarily.
Our newsletter is distributed via an external provider, which we provide with your details for this purpose. If in the process we transmit your personal data outside the EU, the European Economic Area or Switzerland we take appropriate steps to protect them. The Rocket Science Group LLC based in Atlanta, USA, is currently the external provider and the protection of your personal data is guaranteed by the “Privacy Shield” certification of this provider.
As soon as you have registered to receive the newsletter we send you a confirmation e-mail with a link to confirm the registration. You can cancel the newsletter at any time via the relevant button in the footer of each newsletter.
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files which are filed on your terminal by means of the browser.
If you do not want this to happen, you can configure your browser so that it informs you that cookies have been set and you allow this only in certain cases or that it accepts no cookies in general. Deactivation of cookies can limit the functional features of our website.
Our website utilises functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service, which may also store data outside Europe. You can find full details regarding the data centres concerned here. For this purpose cookies are employed which enable the utilisation of the website by its users to be analysed. The information generated in this way is transmitted to the provider’s server and stored there.
You can prevent this by configuring your browser so
that no cookies are stored, or by deactivating this analysis: Deactivate Google Analytics
We have configured Google Analytics in such a way that your IP address is immediately anonymised. We are therefore able to establish the rough geographical location of our visitors, but without any identification.
In relation to our processing of your data you have the right to information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, objection to processing and to data transferability. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data privacy legislation or your legal rights to data protection have otherwise been infringed in any way, you can report this to us (see “Contact” below) or complain to the relevant regulatory body.
