Information for participants of ÖAW events

On this page, you receive information about the way and for what purpose we process personal data in the course of events. In addition, we inform you about your rights in connection with the processing of your data.

Legal Basis and Purpose for Data Processing

The legal basis of processing your data is your registration for, your participation in and the performance of the event (e.g. scientific lecture, conference, workshop), the compliance with legal obligations or a legitimate interest of ÖAW (Art 6 (1) b, c, f GDPR).

Your data will be processed for the administration of the event, to provide you with information about (e.g. changes, deadlines, location) and documents of (e.g. Proceedings) the event as well as for the documentation of the event.

In case you gave your consent to provide you also in the future with information about ÖAW (Art 6 (1) a GDPR), we will process your data also for that purpose. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before the withdrawal.

Retention Period

Your data will be stored as long as necessary for the administration and documentation of the event or legally requested or permitted.

In case of the processing based on consent (provision of information about ÖAW), your data will be stored up to your revocation.

You will find information on your rights in the ÖAW Data Protection Declaration.
