1.1 Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on a website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand. This guarantees anonymized data collection by masking the last part of your IP address. Google gives notification within the framework of Google Analytics that the IP address will be abbreviated within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area, and in exceptional cases only the entire IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser or use the bowser-plugin which you find here:

(Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on).

However please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

More information about Google Analytics’ terms and conditions of use and data privacy: Terms of Service or Google Analytics’ data practice.

Please note that this website initializes Google Analytics with the setting anonymizeIp. This guarantees anonymized data collection by masking the last part of your IP address.

1.2 Newsletter

The OeAWI uses MailChimp as our marketing automation platform.

Your e-mail address will be added to the newsletter of the OeAWI after you have subscribed to the newsletter. For registration, the OeAWI uses a so-called double opt-in procedure. After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses. The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider will be logged.

This data is used by OeAWI to enable analytics of the open and click rate of the newsletter. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is not the goal of the OeAWI to observe individual users. The evaluations serve much more to recognize the reading habits of the users of this website and to adapt the content to them or to send different content according to the interests of the users of this website.

By subscribing to the OeAWI newsletter, you consent to the processing of this data for the purposes set out above. You can unsubscribe form the newsletter by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of the newsletter.
