Privacy Policy

The OeAD-GmbH takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We will treat your personal data as confidential and according to the legal provisions regarding data protection. Here we want to inform you which personal data we collect when you visit our website and for which purposes we use it.

Personal data

Personal data is information that can be used to ascertain your identity. This means information such as your name, address and e-mail address. This does not include information that is not directly related to your person (e.g. favourite websites or number of users of a specific site).

Data collection and data processing

Basically you can use our online services without disclosing your identity. If, however, you e.g. subscribe to one of our newsletters, order information materials or register for an event, we will ask you for your name and other personal information such as your e-mail address. It is up to you whether or not you provide this data. We will store your data on specially protected servers in Austria. Only a few specially authorised persons who are in charge of the technical, commercial or editorial support of the servers have access to this data.

You can object to the use of your personal data at any time. In such case please send an e-mail to:

Forwarding of data

We only use your personal data within our organisation. We will not pass your personal data on to third parties unless you have expressly given us prior permission.

Analysis services

We use the web analytics service Matomo to analyse how our websites are used. This web analytics service allows us to analyse the online behaviour of our website users with regard to time, geographical location, type and operating system of the device used (PC, laptop, tablet, mobile/cell phone), browser used and websites accessed. In this way we are able to optimise the information we offer for the users of our website as well as the display on different devices (PC, laptop, tablet, mobile/cell phone) and different browsers. This information is collected via web beacons and/or cookies.

Web beacons are small graphics on websites that enable log file recording and log file analysis, which are used for statistical analysis. Cookies are small text files serving to analyse the frequency of use and the number of users of our website.

The information thus generated, including your abridged IP address in anonymised form (e.g. – the last six figures will not be displayed), is transmitted to our server and stored for analytical purposes. It will not be linked with your personal data. The information about your use of this website will not be passed on to third persons.

If you do not accept cookies, the functioning of the website might be compromised in some cases.

If you do not agree with the storage and analysis of your visitor data, you can deactivate this function at any time by means of the following option. A Matomo deactivation cookie will then be stored in your browser.
