Accessibility Statement

The Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI) endeavours to make his website accessible. The legal basis for accessibility is the Act on Equal Opportunities for Disabled Persons (BGG) and the Ordinance on Accessible Information Technology (BITV).

However, we have found that with regard to access to contents, in some areas of the website it is not possible to meet accessibility standards. The BfDI tries to improve access to information as far as possible.

Areas where accessibility is partially unavailable

  • PDF downloads: In this area some old documents are not machine-readable. This concerns in particular old activity reports. Documents were all made available in an accessible way from 2020 onwards.
  • Images: Some images contain incorrect alternative texts. This issue will be addressed by mid-2021.


If you notice any deficiencies in the accessibility of our website, you can contact the BfDI’s website editorial office.
