Dear users of e-resources

We would like to point out that, in accordance with Library Regulations, it is the responsibility of users of e-resources to comply with the applicable terms of use. We recommend that users also carefully read the data protection policies of the providers of the e-resources they are using.

If, when using e-resources, users have the option of setting up an account or an online bibliography, signing up for alerts or, otherwise, of entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses etc.), they do so at their own risk.

The data protection policies of e-resource providers list data residency. If the data is stored in a non-EU member state and there is no adequacy agreement with the EU, that state does not offer an adequate level of data protection. This means that data protection may not be ensured and that the rights of persons affected might also not be guaranteed.

The EU has so far adopted an adequacy decision regarding data protection regulations for Andorra, Argentina, the Faroe Islands, Guernsey, the Ilse of Man, Israel, Jersey, Canada, New Zealand, Switzerland and Uruguay.

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

You have the right to file a complaint about the illegal processing of data with the Austrian Data Protection Agency (e-mail:, which is the responsible supervisory authority.

Unless otherwise stipulated by law, the liability of FH Vorarlberg GmbH is excluded for the use of e-resources.

Responsible for data processing: Fachhochschule Vorarlberg GmbH, Campus V, Hochschulstraße 1, 6850 Dornbirn, Austria, e-mail:
