Privacy Statement

The protection of your personal data is of great importance to us. We therefore process your data only in accordance with legal provisions (GDPR, Austrian Data Protection Act, Austrian Telecommunications Act 2003).

The present privacy statement is designed to be complimentary to the general privacy statement of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (AFEC), which the VIAC is organizationally affiliated with. You can find it under the following link: https://www.wko.at/service/datenschutzerklaerung.html.

1.    Administration of proceedings

VIAC processes data for the purpose of administering proceedings in accordance with the legal provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e and/or f GDPR. We process all such data that are necessary for administering proceedings; VIAC cannot administer proceedings without this data. As far as processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, it is to pursue the legitimate interests of VIAC and persons involved in proceedings in the proper administration of proceedings. Data will be transferred to other persons to the extent necessary for the administration of proceedings. This includes that your data may be transferred also outside of the EU or the EEA. This is one of the cases of derogation pursuant to Art. 49 para. 1 GDPR, i.e. the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims (lit. e).

VIAC is entitled to dispose of the entire file of a case, with the exception of decisions, after termination of the proceedings (Art. 12 para. 9 in connection with Art. 34 and 35 Vienna Rules). VIAC may further store your data for such duration as necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose.

If you participate in events offered by us or contribute to our publications, VIAC processes data for these purposes. If you participate in events offered by us, we may also produce foto, video, and/or audio recordings of the event and the participants and process these recordings.

In connection with events and publications, please see the privacy statement of the AFEC (point 1.1 for members or point 1.4 for non-members).

VIAC processes data for the purpose of such events or publications in accordance with the legal provisions mentioned therein as well as in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR to the extent necessary for the performance of a contract. VIAC may store your data for such duration as necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose or for the compliance with statutory retention obligations.

To the extent necessary for the performance of a contract in connection with events or publications, your data may be transferred also outside of the EU or the EEA. This is a case of derogation pursuant to Art. 49 para. 1 GDPR, i.e. the performance of a contract (lit. b or c).
