Data Protection

The following data protection policy is part of the service agreement:

  1. When handling personal data, EUDT Energie- & Umweltdaten Treuhand GmbH (hereinafter referred to as EUDT) undertakes to observe the provisions of the 2000 Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG 2000), in particular article 15 (data privacy), and the 2003 Austrian Telecommunications Act (TKG 2003), and to ensure compliance.
  2. The contracting parties assure each other that they will treat all the trade secrets disclosed to them by the other party in connection with this agreement and its performance as such and will not make them accessible to third parties unless they are public knowledge.
  3. Clients’ personal access codes enable them to access the platform for the period of time defined in the agreement. Clients undertake to prevent unauthorized disclosure of such codes. Should this nevertheless occur due to negligence, EUDT is entitled to block the login.
  4. EUDT is entitled to quote generally known data (e.g. names) in the course of marketing activities unless the parties expressly agreed before signing the agreement that EUDT should refrain from doing so.
  5. Neither clients nor EUDT are authorized to pass the data, contacts, knowledge and information obtained by EUDT on to third parties. EUDT reserves the right to claim for damages (in compliance with article 15 DSG 2000).
  6. EUDT shall take all reasonable steps to protect the client’s data and information stored at EUDT’s sites from being accessed by unauthorized third parties. EUDT is not however responsible if third parties still succeed in unlawfully gaining access to the data and information (in compliance with articles 11 and 14, DSG 2000).
  7. When they sign the agreement, clients give their consent that the data obtained from this business may also be sent to subcontractors involved in handling the contract (in compliance with article 10, DSG 2000).
  8. Anonymized data (energy data) may only be used for the purpose of scientific research and statistics, provided that the aim is not obtaining results relating to people. In such cases the name, location, and all traceable criteria will be anonymized. All the data that was also collected legitimately for other analyses or other purposes may be used (in compliance with article 46, DSG 2000).
  9. In some situations, the cookies we use to show energy-data, may be served from a different domain than the website you’re visiting. This may happen, for example, if you visit websites with our external widgets. For this case a policy tag has integrated on our platform to avoid the required policy.
    Some browsers require third party cookies to use the P3P protocol to state their privacy practices. However, the P3P protocol was not designed with situations like these in mind. The organization that established P3P, the World Wide Web Consortium, suspended its work on this standard several years ago because most modern web browsers don’t fully support P3P. As a result, the P3P standard is now out of date and doesn’t reflect technologies that are currently in use on the web, so most websites currently don’t have P3P policies.
