Data Protection and Information about Surveys

Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FH Vorarlberg) treats your personal data with the utmost care and processes it in compliance with national and European data protection regulations.

That is why we would like to inform you that all personal data (gender, age, information about studying, job situation etc.) provided to us as part of this survey is transmitted in an anonymized form to, a website of QuestBack GmbH (Gustav-Heinemann-Ufer 72a, D-50968 Cologne, Germany, Tel. +49 221 27169 0, Email:

FH Vorarlberg subsequently retrieves the collective anonymized data from QuestBank. The results of the data analyses are published so that recipients of the survey results report are not able to clearly infer the identity of individuals or groups of persons with less than five members, even if they combine the information in the dataset (for example, gender, age and degree programme).

Text entries in open text fields are also anonymized in an initial processing step by FH Vorarlberg, provided that they contain information that might directly or indirectly allow inferences to be made about clearly identifiable persons, regardless of whether these are the author or a third party. Otherwise FH Vorarlberg accepts the text entries without further changes.

Survey results are used to evaluate and further develop FH Vorarlberg. The data is processed with the aid of computer technology.

The obtained data is used by employees of FH Vorarlberg and internally transmitted to the relevant persons at the University. All data is solely stored in an anonymized form.

Please note that, within the scope permitted by law, you have the right to access, rectify and delete your personal data as well as the rights to restrict and to object to the processing of your personal data. Enquiries and requests should be sent to
