  • for an eligibility check as well as
  • for the transfer of solely course-related information to registered participants by USI employees, especially to inform participants about last minute changes or cancellations of specific courses and course dates, or to inform participants about required equipment.

With your explicit consent we also process health-related personal data (medical data, information regarding injuries and similar so-called Art. 9 data), which you provide us with. You can withdraw this consent at any time. Health-related data are necessary for creating a training schedule and will be used for that purpose only. Without your consent it is not possible to create training schedules.

Data transfer

The processing of data is done by the responsible person/institution/body. In the case of error, data and protocol information will be - only to the strictly necessary extent - transferred to the mandated processors (producers of providers of IT solutions) in the context of troubleshooting. In such cases the University of Salzburg contractually ensures that your data will be processed by our mandated processors in compliance with data protection regulations, while taking your rights into consideration.

We process your data as part of the implementation of your membership agreement or for the implementation of precontractual measures (Art. 6. sec. 1 (b) GDPR). We also process your data based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 sec. 1 (f) GDPR) in an optimal course planning as well as self-protection (the protection of property and the protection of employees of the University of Salzburg), as well as the protection of responsibilities. If we do process health-related data, we do so based on your explicit consent (Art. 9 sec. 1 (a) GDPR).
