Suppression Files

  • The Austrian Mail Preference Service (Robinson list) is operated by the Wirtschaftskammer Österreich – WKO (Fachverband Werbung und Marktkommunikation) of the Austrian Chamber of Commerce, and it is a suppression file which use constitutes a legal requirement. Only Austrian address publishers and direct marketing distributors get free access to the suppression files (access is not allowed to the general public). It is updated at the beginning of every month. The List currently contains about 120.000 entries (July 2019).

The above-mentioned suppression files do not concern collecting of addresses, but the sending of unsolicited advertising. The DPA is not the competent authority in the field of unsolicited mail.

There is no Telephone Preference Service because telemarketing (B2B & B2C) is on an opt-in basis.
