SALZBURG INTERNATIONAL SUMMER ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS (ISBK, data controller or “we”) respects all laws and regulations applicable on the topic of data protection and is committed to the values of privacy in relation to the processing of personal data. This Privacy Statement explains how we collect, process and use information about you when you use our website (“Privacy Policies”). We are the operator of the website www.summeracademy.at. We will routinely update this Privacy Statement to clarify our practices and to reflect new or different privacy practices.
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person or a legal entity (“data subjects” or “users” of our website).
Data entered into online forms (when registering for the ISBK Newsletter, when registering for a course, a grant, an accommodation, when registering for a membership in the society of friends, with the purchase of a product in our shop) is stored. In addition to the visible fields in the forms, such as your e-mail address, first name and surname, the time of storage and the current IP address are also recorded.
Our website enables you to apply for a course or a grant, an accommodation, register for our newsletter, register for a membership for the society of friends or purchase a product of our shop online. When you place an order, we use your information (name, telephone number, E-mail address, street address) in connection with your person. We collect, process, and store this information for the purpose of processing and facilitating delivery of your order. We neither reveal nor sell or lease your personal data to third parties. We transfer your data to third parties only in cases where doing so is necessary for the fulfilment of your contract with us. It is for this purpose that we transfer your data to our technology partners (NOUS Wissensmanagment GmbH, 1150 Vienna, Ullmannstarße 35), to our payment services provider (mPAY24 GmbH, 1050 Vienna, Grüngasse 16), and to our delivery agents and/or shippers (such as Österreichische Post AG) so that you receive the products you have purchased.
Should you break off your placement of an order before completing it, none of the data you have entered will be saved by us. But if a contract is concluded, we save all data pertaining to this contractual relationship for a period of ten years, at which time the legal obligation to retain this data expires.
Data processing takes place in conformance with legal requirements (TKG, DSGVO, DSG/2018).
