to the media area!

If you would like to be on our media information distribution list, please send an email to press@erstestiftung.org and provide your first and last names and your media outlet.

Selected journalists receive our media releases, which contain information about media-relevant events and other news from ERSTE Foundation. We maintain a directory of journalists’ addresses for the purpose of sending out media releases, in accordance with the provisions under Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR (legitimate interests pursued by the controller).

We process the following data: first name / last name / media outlet / contact details.

If the journalists themselves did not provide the data for this directory of journalists’ addresses, then it was gleaned from publicly accessible sources such as the website of the organisation in question or the Austrian Media Handbook.

Data will, of course, not be passed on to third parties.
