Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 GDPR.
We, the Austrian Economics Center, collect data on website access on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Article 6 (1) lit. DSGVO) and save it as “server log files” on the server of the website. The following data is logged:
- Visited website
- Time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source / reference from which you came to the page
- Used browser
- Operating system used
- Used IP address
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 30 days and then deleted. The storage of the data is done for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be revoked for reasons of proof, they are excluded from the deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Collection and processing of personal data
The Austrian Economics Center collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.
Personal information means all information that is used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you – such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without giving any personal information. To improve our online offer, however, we (without personal reference) store your access data on this website. These access data include, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet service provider. Due to the anonymization of the data, conclusions about your person are not possible.
– Contact form
Through the contact form, the email address as well as the request are necessarily collected and processed as data in order to enable processing and answering of the request. In addition, the name and a subject can be specified and processed for easier communication.
Embedded content from other websites
Posts on this site may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, pictures, posts, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behave just as if the visitor had visited the other website.
Due to our legitimate interest, this website uses for the optimization and analysis of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR the “Google Analytics” service offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there.
Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active
This website uses the IP anonymization. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases, the IP address is initially transferred unabridged to the United States to a Google server and shortened there. This reduction eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The user’s IP address provided by the browser will not be combined with other data stored by Google.
Under the terms of the Order Data Agreement, which we have created as a website operator with Google Inc., the information we collect will be used to compile an evaluation of website activity and website activity, and to provide services related to internet usage.
The data collected by Google on our behalf will be used to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, such as, to generate activity reports on the website to improve our online offering.
You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all features of this website without restriction if your browser does not allow cookies.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
