Personal data are data by which a natural person can be identified. Therefore, all data is personal which allow conclusions about your person, e.g. your name in connection with an address; many, but by no means all e-mail addresses.

Personal data also includes data that only in combination with other data, often from another data processor, makes it possible to identify a person, e.g. your IP address in combination with a time you were online.

ORF and its subsidiaries process your data, for example, if you order something in our online shop or via our customer service departments, take part in a competition or contact us in any other way.

We process data such as your IP address and browser or app IDs for technical operation and further development whenever you use the services of the network.

We use the personal data you provide only to the extent necessary to fulfill the respective purpose; e.g.

  •     to fulfill a contract
  •     in compliance with a legal obligation
  •     for technical service delivery
  •     when registering for one of our online offers requiring registration
  •     for sending newsletters
  •     during the processing of an order in the online shop
  •     for sending information material and advertising
  •     for the processing of a lottery
  •     for measuring the use and performance of ORF online offerings
  •     to answer a question you ask us.

We store and process your data only as long as it is necessary to fulfill the respective purposes.

The duration of the data processing is also based in particular on the statutory retention periods and the limitation periods for potential legal claims.
