Data protection statement

Privacy statement
We attach special importance to the protection of your personal data. Naturally, we only process your data on the basis of statutory provisions (General Data Protection Regulation, Austrian Telecommunication Act 2003). In this privacy statement, we would like to inform you of the most important aspects of data processing on our website. In general, we only store and process data you entrust us with for the purposes of our NGO work and do not share them with third parties.

If you contact us via e-mail, the submitted data will be stored on our server for the purposes of answering your request, and, in case of follow-up questions, for six months. We will not share these data with third parties.

Newsletter subscription
When you subscribe to our newsletter, you expressly agree with receiving our quarterly newsletter until further notice. The necessary data – at least your name and your e-mail address – will be stored on our server and not shared with third parties.

Our website will use so-called cookies, i.e. text files that your browser will create on your end device. They do not harm your device. We use cookies in order to improve the usability of our website. Some cookies will remain on your end device until you actively delete them. They allow our website to recognize your browser on your next visit. If you do not wish this, you can adjust your browser settings so you will be informed about the use of cookies and can allow or refuse it in each case. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functions of our website.

Web analysis
Our website uses functions of the web analysis provider Google Analytics. The corporate headquarters of Google Inc. is in the U.S.A. No data will be transferred to an extra-European third country. These functions will use cookies which allow for an analysis of your use of the website for statistical purposes. The generated information is transferred to the provider’s server and stored there. You may avoid this by adjusting your browser settings to disallow cookies.

Your rights
Your fundamental rights include information, correction, deletion, limitation, data portability, cancellation and objection. Should you think that our processing of your data contravenes privacy law, you can lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. In Austria, this authority is the Datenschutzbehörde.
