We understand that making reservations online involves a great deal of trust on your part; we take your confidence very seriously, and make it our highest priority to ensure the security and confidentiality of all your personal data, according to the Austrian federal act concerning the protection of personal data. Österreichisches Verkehrsbüro AG will use your personal data exclusively for the purposes of responding to and processing your requests in relation to our travel products and services. We will only share your personal data with authorized service providers who may perform certain services or functions on our behalf or as required by law. Österreichisches Verkehrsbüro AG will not sell or rent your personal data to any third party.
Our systems are configured with data encryption technologies and industry-standard firewalls. When you send personal information to Österreichisches Verkehrsbüro AG over the Internet, your data is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure safe transmission.
The connection to a secure site is indicated by "https://" instead of "http://" in the address (URL). Data sent over such a connection is encrypted which prevents unauthorized third parties from retrieving out confidential information. You may also see one of the following icons at the bottom right of your screen:
Due to the fact that some of our pages are nested in a frameset, only the embedded form is encrypted, therefore you cannot see the SSL-icon mentioned above. You can verify encryption by right-clicking the form (Properties | URL) checking the URL beginning with "https://".
SSL allows client (i.e. your computer) and server-side authentication through certificates, which in turn have been signed by a so called Certification Agency. Österreichisches Verkehrsbüro AG has obtained a digital certificate from the Comodo Group.
