In order to ensure all-round safety for visitors and employees and guarantee a carefree skating experience, new security technology was invested in for the Viennese Ice Dream:
Each guest is given a Community Distance Marker (CDM for short) after purchasing their ticket. The CDM is a small device that helps its wearer to maintain the prescribed minimum distance and at the same time enables targeted contact tracing. If a visitor comes closer to a person from outside their household than the prescribed minimum distance of 2 metres, then the CDM begins to beep, light up and vibrate.
Families can define themselves as a group at the time of registration, so that the alarm function is muted within that group of people.
If a visitor is in contact on site with a person from outside of their household for longer than 7.5 minutes and at a distance of less than 2 metres, then this encounter is recorded on the CDM and can be specifically evaluated in the course of contact tracing.
The CDM is used only for measuring the distance; tracking is not possible.
The data are not used for statistical or other purposes but solely for any contact tracing by the authorities and are automatically erased after 28 days.
The Community Distance Marker also serves as an admission ticket at the turnstiles. A deposit of €10 must be left at the counter for each guest and Community Distance Marker.
