  1. Server log files

We collect data on every access to our provision (server log files). The access data include: name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, data volume transmitted, notification of successful access, browser type and version, operating system of the user, referrer URL (the linking page visited previously), IP address of the user; anonymised device identification.

We use the log data only for statistical analyses for the purpose of operating, ensuring and optimising our provision. However, we reserve the right to check the log data subsequently in order to analyse potential errors that occur and in the case of specific evidence that gives rise to legitimate suspicion of unlawful use.

  1. AWStats

For continuous improvement of our information provision, the following information is collected, stored and analysed: web browser, operating system, country, date, time, access duration, IP address, access status, content and pages accessed. The free analysis software AWStats is used for the purpose of analysis. This is used to analyse log files created by web servers on the basis of visitor requests. AWStats does not use cookie files for the analysis. The statistical analysis is performed using the log files, which also contain IP addresses. With AWStats, unlike other statistics programmes, no data are transmitted to external servers. The programme is installed on internal servers. Transmission of data to third parties or abroad is therefore also avoided.

  1. Salzburg Verkehr App

If you are looking for connections, including footpath routes from your current location and stops near you, and if you want to see your location on the map, our app needs access to the address book of your device. After installing our app, you can decide whether or not to allow access to the address book of your device. You can allow or remove access at any time with settings in the app. The following processes are possible in the app with your consent:

  • Location / tracking: identification of the network-based location or tracking via GPS allows routing from or to the current location.
  • Network communication: this is required for internet access by the app.
  • Access to contacts (phone book): within the app, this allows use of contacts/addresses from the phone book for searches (e.g. entry of start and destination address or search using the map).
  • Access to storage: this is required in order to save downloaded files in the device storage.
  • Deactivation of standby mode (system tools): allows the app to send you push notifications.
  • Installation of links (system tools): allows the creation of shortcuts on the home screen.
  • Your accounts: required in order to be able to use the web-based interfaces of third-party providers.
  • Access to hardware control elements: allows use of the device vibration function for push notifications.
  • Access to camera: Allows photos for personal favourites and contacts.
  1. Salzburg Verkehr 2GO App

How the Sbg2GO app works:

To use Sbg2GO the customer must “check in” to the system before starting the journey and thus purchase a valid travel ticket. This is done by “swiping” over the check-in button (check-in). With the Sbg2GO system unlike classic sale processes on local and regional public transport the customer purchases an electronically verifiable travel ticket before departure in order to use the mode of transport. Using GPS technology and motion technology it is possible to identify whether and for how long customers remain on the mode of transport as well as which route they have covered. Multiple single journeys can therefore be made with one check-in. When alighting the customer must “swipe” again to end the journey in the system (check-out). The ticket products themselves are generated for the customer only subsequently in the course of best price billing and displayed in the app as information. The services provided are billed on a weekly basis via the SEPA direct debit mandate issued by the customer in the course of registration.

  1. Salzburg Verkehr Shuttle App:

The SVG journey arrangement programme allows registered customers to make firm bookings for specific journeys in the SVV Shuttle App or web application or by calling the hotline, and to enter into a contract of carriage with the executing transport company. Journeys generally take place in vehicles with up to nine seats and will potentially be shared with other passengers. They always start and end at stops or collection points. If safe boarding or alighting is not possible at a stop or collection point, the crew is entitled to stop the vehicle at the nearest safe boarding/alighting opportunity.

Depending on the booking channel used, payment is made through the specified payment service provider or in cash.

  1. External services

Above and beyond our website and apps, we provide various content operated by third parties on social networks and in app stores operated by third parties. These external services are linked from our website and our app in such a way that no data are transmitted to the external services when using our website or our app. A connection to the respective external service is established only when the link is actually clicked.

Please note that these external services are operated by third parties and not by SVG.
