The protection of your personal data has been of particular concern to us in the past and will be in the future.
For an explanation of the terms used, such as “personal data” or their “processing”, we refer to the definitions in Art. 4 of the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE).
This website is operated by Generation Earth c.o. Umweltverband WWF Österreich, Ottakringer Straße 114-116, 1160 Vienna, Austria (“we” or “us”). This message describes how we, as the organization responsible for data protection, process your personal data. We differentiate between the following areas:
1. Data categories
We process the following categories of data:
- master data
- contact details
- communication history
2. Purpose of the processing
We use this data to prepare and send out newsletters. For this purpose we store your data in an electronic database.
3. Legal bases
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is on the one hand our predominant, and on the other hand your consent.
4. Description of the legitimate interest
Personal data for general postal advertising activities to fulfil the objectives of the organisation will be processed on the basis of the legitimate interest of the organisation. In this way, the organizational goals laid down in the Articles of Association or the Articles of Association are to be achieved.
You can subscribe to our newsletter on this website. Of course, with every newsletter/e-mail sent by us you have the prescribed possibility to unsubscribe from the newsletter immediately and easily.
1. Data categories
When you access this website, your IP address is stored in log files. We use this information to evaluate the use of the site and thereby further optimize our website for you – these files are neither stored in our database nor used in any way. The IP address is the worldwide valid, unique identification of a computer and consists of four number blocks separated by dots. Usually, as a private user, you will not use a constant IP address, as your provider will only assign it to you temporarily for a session. Nevertheless, a clear assignment of user data via this feature is possible in principle for static IP addresses. We can only link your IP address to your user data by “manual” research. We only use this in exceptional cases when we have to prevent misuse and fraud and deny access to individual IP addresses.
2. Purposes of data processing
We will process your personal data in particular for the following purposes:
- to provide you with this website and to further improve and develop this website
- to create usage statistics
- to detect, prevent and investigate attacks on our website.
3. Legal basis of the processing
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is our overriding legitimate interest (pursuant to Art 6 para 1 lit f EU General Data Protection Regulation), which consists of achieving the purposes mentioned above under point 2.
General terms and conditions
Transfer of your personal data
As part of the operation of our website, we are supported by service providers who may gain access to your personal data in the course of their activities, insofar as they require the data to fulfil their respective services. They have undertaken to comply with the applicable data protection regulations. Order processing contracts were concluded in accordance with Art 28 or Art 26 GDPR. We therefore only work together with service providers who offer sufficient guarantees that suitable technical and organisational measures are carried out in such a way that the processing takes place in accordance with the requirements of the data protection regulations and guarantees the protection of your rights.
Duration of storage
We process your personal data, if available and as far as necessary for the purposes mentioned, up to your objection, as well as beyond that in accordance with the legal storage and documentation obligations, which result among other things from the Federal Fiscal Code.
In any case, if you fill in a form on our website, we will store your data for as long as we need your data to carry out the requested activity and thereafter only for as long as required by law.

Among other things, you are entitled (subject to the conditions of applicable law),

(ii) to request the rectification, integration or deletion of your personal data that are incorrect or are not processed in accordance with the law,

(iv) under certain circumstances, to object to the processing of your personal data or to revoke the consent given previously for the processing,
(v) require data portability,
(vi) to know the identity of third parties to whom your personal data is transferred; and
(vii) lodge a complaint with the competent authority.
WWF internally we take organizational, contractual and technical security measures (TOMS), which are regularly reviewed and adapted to the state of the art in order to ensure that the provisions of the data protection laws are observed.

Use of social plugins
Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition “Facebook Social Plug-in” or “Facebook Social Plugin”. An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.
When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can immediately associate your visit to our website with your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “I like” button or making a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.
For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection information: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you do not want Facebook to associate the data collected via our website directly with your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the Facebook plugins from loading with add-ons for your browser, e.g. the Facebook Blocker.
Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the microblogging service Twitter, which is operated by Twitter Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Twitter”). The plugins are marked with a Twitter logo, for example in the form of a blue “Twitter bird”. An overview of the Twitter plugins and their appearance can be found here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons.
When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Twitter’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Twitter to your browser and integrated into the page. The integration gives Twitter the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Twitter profile or are not currently logged in to Twitter. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Twitter server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Twitter, Twitter can immediately associate your visit to our website with your Twitter account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “Twitter” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Twitter server and stored there. The information will also be published on your Twitter account and displayed to your contacts.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Twitter as well as your relevant rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the Twitter data protection information: https://twitter.com/privacy.
If you do not want Twitter to associate the data collected via our website directly with your Twitter account, you must log out of Twitter before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the Twitter plugins from loading with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the script blocker NoScript.
Other social networks
We enable content sharing on other platforms with the Monarch plugin.
When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc.).

By this integration the respective platform receives the information that your browser has called the appropriate side of our web appearance, even if you do not possess a profile on the respective platform or are not logged in there straight. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a server of the respective platform and stored there.
