Data Protection

Jump to: Footer

Data protection is a fundamental right for everyone and a precious asset for democracy. We at the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA) are particularly aware of the responsibility conferred upon us in this regard and in our day-to-day business. The protection and security of your personal data is therefore an issue of great importance for us.

The Austrian Financial Market Authority therefore only stores and processes personal data within the meaning of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG; Datenschutzgesetz). For banking supervision-related analysis the Financial Market Authority and the Oesterreichische Nationalbank use a joint database. The document “Gemeinsame Datenbank der FMA und der OeNB für bankaufsichtliche Analysen” contains detailed information about the processing of such data and can be found (in German only) under the following link: https://www.oenb.at/dam/jcr:b609a9ae-1fe9-44a1-8038-60f715c606b3/ds_gemeinsame-datenbank-fma-oenb.pdf

In additional we have also adopted organisational, contractual and technical safeguards in accordance with technological state-of-the-art, to ensure that the regulations set out in the data protection laws are adhered to, and thereby to ensure that data processed by us is protected against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons.
