Data Privacy and Data Security Are Our Top Priority

The OeNB and IFES ensure the confidentiality and anonymity of respondents’ data.

Any violation of personal data privacy would trigger severe penalties for the interviewers and survey agents as well as for any OeNB and/or ECB staff involved. This is in line with the Federal Act on Personal Data Protection, in particular articles 62 and 63 (see excerpt from the Data Protection Act 2000 (available in German only).
