The ITA has been researching the impact of new technologies on fundamental rights such as the right to privacy for over 30 years and takes data protection very seriously. This means that we collect and process personal data only to the extent necessary for a specific, legally legitimate purpose and provided that the data subjects provide it voluntarily. This applies to the implementation of research projects as well as to research administration (e.g. data of cooperation partners).

As a research institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, we are also committed to the Austrian Academy of Sciences data protection guidelines.
