  1. Purpose of processing your personal data

AWARD aims to develop "All Weather Autonomous Real logistics operations and Demonstrations" and address challenges related to the deployment of automated vehicles in real logistics operations through several strategic use cases that meet market needs, from the factory to logistics hubs.

The information gathered as part of this study will be published in reports on the research project or in scientific papers in the form of statistical evaluations or scenarios while preserving the anonymity of the participants.

Your personal data will only be processed as part of this research project if you give your express consent.

After completion of the research project your data will be preserved for the purpose of proving compliance with the guidelines for good scientific practice. For a further good development of the area of interest in the AWARD project we, the Austrian Institute of Technology, rely on the fact that further processing of data for research purposes is generally considered "not incompatible".

By giving your consent, you agree allowing to process your data for other scientific research purposes relating to the AWARD project if these are not aimed at producing person-related results.

  1. Processed data

In case you give your consent, the following data will be collected:

  • age;
  • gender;
  • country;
  • technological interests;
  • all opinions and statements expressed during the user study.
  1. Data storage period

After completion of the research project your personal data will be retained for as long as necessary to provide evidence of compliance with good scientific practice in accordance with the relevant guidelines. Research data must currently be retained for a period of ten years. If this period changes in the future your data will be stored for a correspondingly shorter or longer period of time.

  1. Recipients of your personal data

By giving your consent, you agree to the transfer of your data to the AWARD project partners. Further information and all recipients of the project AWARD can be found on the project page:
