Email mailings / Newsletter / Mail deliveries

The following items of information are provided to you in supplement to the general Data Protection Declaration of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

To the extent of your consent or based on public interest (promoting sciences) or legitimate interests (providing information about the activities of ÖAW), you will receive general and/or personalised information individually tailored to your interests and news about scientific activities and programmes of ÖAW (e.g. information on events and research results of ÖAW). These deliveries are based on article 6, paragraph 1, letter a, e, f GDPR; for electronic mailings possibly red together with § 174, paragraph 4 of the Austrian Telecommunications Act 2021. You will receive deliveries via the post or by email.

You have the option of subscribing to different forms of newsletters or mailings (e.g. ÖAW Newsletter, press releases). We may also send you information about similar events or offers due to your participation in events or the use of offers from ÖAW.

For this purpose various personal data, such as your name, your email address as well as your affiliation to a company or an institution may be processed, if you have provided this information or if this data is publicly available (in particular on the internet).

E.g. after registering for the ÖAW Newsletter or for the press release distribution list of ÖAW, you will regularly receive information on scientific activities and programmes of ÖAW. For ÖAW newsletters and press releases, ÖAW uses an email-marketing tool in order to be able to send you relevant information. For this only your name, your email address as well as your affiliation to a company or an institution are processed.

You may withdraw your consent to receive mails and information at any time with effect for the future. The withdrawal of your consent does not affect the legality of processing on the basis of your consent prior to its withdrawal.

If you receive mailings and information based on public or legitimate interests, you can object to these mailings at any time and will not receive any further mailings in the future.

You will find details on cancellation in every single newsletter or mail.

Any forwarding of your data to third parties not belonging to ÖAW only occurs if this is required for mailing purposes.

Storage period

Data you made available to us (e.g. for the newsletter), we store as long as we have a legitimate interest or until you revoke your consent to do so.
