Data processing

We process your personal data in particular for the purpose of conducting our business activities (including pre-contractual measures, preparation of contracts, processing of contracts and billing) as well as for planning, controlling, implementing and evaluating our marketing and sales activities (including providing you with information or with the services of ORF-Enterprise, participation in initiatives such as AGTT|Screenforce) and for the purpose of inviting you to events of the ORF Group.

Personal data

By personal data we mean all information relating to an identified or identifiable person. In particular, the following personal data will be processed by us if there is a legal basis for doing so, although not all of the data listed will be processed for all purposes:

  • Master data (e.g. first and last name, salutation)
  • Contact details (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number, company address, position at the company)
  • Billing data (e.g. VAT-ID, bank details, terms of payment, information on your creditworthiness, insolvency information)
  • Contract data (e.g. offers, contract/order number, information on type and content of the contract, contract period, period of notice)
  • User administration data (user name, personal password)
  • Information voluntarily provided by you (e.g. date of birth, leisure interests, cultural and culinary preferences)
  • Data relevant for copyright matters (e.g. AKM data)
Legal basis for processing your personal data

We will only process your personal data if the requirements of Article 6 GDPR are met. This means, in particular

  • with your consent, e.g. master data, contact data, other data voluntarily disclosed
  • for the fulfilment of a contract (incl. pre-contractual measures), e.g. master data, contact data, contract data, billing data, copyright data
  • to fulfil a legal obligation, e.g. master data, contract data, billing data
  • to protect a legitimate interest, e.g. our interest in protecting ourselves against the loss of receivables (e.g. processing of creditworthiness and insolvency data), our interest in asserting legal claims or defending ourselves against legal claims or our interest in inviting you as a business partner to events of the ORF Group
  • in any case, we process your personal data only for the fulfilment of the respective purpose (e.g. for invoicing contractually agreed services).
Transfer of your data to third parties

We will, of course and as a matter of principle, treat your personal data confidentially and will not make them available to third parties, unless we involve them as service providers (processors) for the fulfilment of the above-mentioned purposes, unless you have given your consent to this disclosure, unless we have a legitimate interest in this disclosure (e.g. checking your authorisation to enter our premises or ensuring smooth event management) or unless we are obliged to pass on this data, for example due to a court order or for the fulfilment of a contract with you (e.g. passing on payment data to banking companies).

If we use service providers as processors (e.g. technical service providers, recruitment agencies, marketing agencies, PR agencies, sales representatives) to fulfil our tasks or obligations, we will conclude appropriate data processing agreements in accordance with the legal requirements in order to protect your personal data.

Insofar as data transfers to third countries (e.g. customer service by agencies or sales representatives in non-EU countries or our screening platform “Content Sales International”) are necessary for the fulfilment of our tasks, this will only take place in accordance with Articles 44 to 50 GDPR if an adequacy decision by the Commission has been issued or if suitable guarantees are provided for this purpose. Information about these suitable guarantees and a copy of these guarantees is available on request at

Duration of our storage of your personal data

We will delete your personal data as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected or otherwise processed, or when you revoke your consent to the processing of certain data, provided there are no statutory storage and retention periods preventing deletion (e.g. in accordance with the Austrian Fiscal Act (BAO), the Austrian Civil Code (ABGB), or the ORF-Act (ORF-G)) and provided that no claims can be asserted anymore based on the respective data processing.

Local storage, pixels and counting

In addition to cookies, there are newer technologies that can store information and are known as Local Storage, Webstorage or DOM Storage and are used for similar purposes. This information is hard-coded to the originating domain and is not sent to the originating server with every single request, but only when it is really needed and usually by the use of JavaScript. The values are stored until they are deleted.
