The responsible handling of personal data is a top priority for the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK). We want to make sure that you know when we collect what data and how we use it. We have taken technical and organisational measures which ensure that the data protection regulations are followed by us and by our external service providers.

The following data is processed when you visit our website (server logs):

Social media links

Our website includes links to various social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube). However, only the image (icon) is linked in these instances. This prevents data from being transmitted to these services automatically. Your data is not transmitted to the given service unless you actively click one of these icons.

The social media services mentioned above are headquartered or registered in the USA, so the transmission of data to the USA cannot be ruled out. The European Court of Justice has classified the USA as a country with an inadequate level of data protection. In particular, there is a risk that US authorities and intelligence agencies will access the personal data and use it for monitoring and surveillance purposes. The enforcement of data subject rights is not guaranteed through appropriate legal remedies in the USA.

Links to websites of other providers

Our online content includes links to websites of other providers. We have no influence over the extent to which these providers comply with the applicable data protection regulations.


Access statistics are collected with the Mamoto analytics tool; your IP address is anonymised and the tool is installed locally and configured so that no cookies are saved.

Legal basis for data processing

The following legal basis applies to the processing of your data: processing for the purposes of our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit f GDPR.

Your rights

You have the right of access, the right to rectification, the right to erasure, the right to restriction of processing, the right to data portability, the right to withdraw consent, and the right to object. If you believe that processing of your data is in violation of data protection law or your data privacy rights have been infringed upon in any other way, you can lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the Austrian Data Protection Authority.
