Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in our association and associated clubs Austria Shitoryu Karate-Do Shitokai. We take the protection of your personal data seriously. We comply with the legal provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the Austrian Data Protection Act in the current version. In the following we would like to inform you comprehensively and transparently about the processing of your personal data by us as the responsible association. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us at the address given in the imprint.


Processing and disclosure of personal data

The term "processing" includes any handling of personal data, such as its collection, organization, storage, transmission, modification through to deletion and final destruction. If you provide us with personal data outside of a contract, we process this data according to the purpose of the specific data collection or data communication. In this case, we usually obtain your consent beforehand. The data will then only be passed on to other companies/associations/institutions to the extent covered by your consent. In individual cases, we may also be legally obliged or entitled to process your personal data due to our overriding interests. In this case, we will make this transparent to you as far as possible. If you have concluded a contract with us, we will use the data you provide to the extent that this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract. It will only be passed on to third parties if the


Fulfillment of a contract requires this In both cases (within and outside of a contract), your data will only be processed for purposes other than the original purpose if these other purposes are compatible with the original purpose.


Deletion of personal data processed by us

Your personal data will be deleted by us as soon as there is no longer any reason for further processing or storage. To ensure this, we delete all old data. Subject to a statutory retention obligation, data will be deleted if the purpose of the data processing no longer applies, if there is no longer a contractual basis or if there is no longer a legitimate interest. In addition, you can of course request the deletion of your data at any other time (see below under “Rights of data subjects”). If we are legally obliged to store your data (e.g. due to tax regulations), it will be deleted after this statutory retention period has expired.


Rights of data subjects / Your rights to the protection of your personal data

You have a number of rights with regard to your personal data processed by us. You can assert all these rights free of charge and informally (by e-mail, telephone or post), if necessary after proof of your identity, at the address given below. Your rights in detail:


  • Right to information: You can request informal information about the data we process at any time. In this case, we will inform you in writing what data we have stored about you, for what purposes we use it, to which categories of recipients we pass it on and how long we intend to store it. We will respond to your request for information immediately, but no later than within one month.

  • Right to deletion: You have the right to informally request the deletion of your data processed by us at any time. We will comply with this request if your data is no longer required for the purpose of collection, you revoke any existing consent, in the event of unlawful data processing or if deletion is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation.

  • Right to rectification: If we mistakenly process incorrect or incomplete data about you, we will of course correct it. An informal application addressed to us is sufficient.

  • Right to restriction of processing: If it is not possible to delete your data or if you do not want this, but you do not agree to a use beyond the storage of the data, we are obliged, at your request, to stop the further processing of your data restrict personal data.

  • Right to data transferability: We will provide you with the data we have stored about you, which we have received on the basis of a contract or based on your consent, upon your informal request free of charge in a common file format. You can use this data for your own purposes and pass it on to future contractual partners. If you wish and if it is technically feasible, we will also transfer your data directly to an addressee named by you. In


In this case, we will inform you after the transfer has taken place. We will respond to your request immediately, but no later than within one month.

  • Right to object: In certain cases, under the General Data Protection Regulation, you also have the right to object to the further processing of your data. Since we are currently not carrying out any data processing in our company for which you have the right to object, we refer you to the right to deletion or the right to restriction of processing (see above).


right of appeal

The EU General Data Protection Regulation and the Austrian Data Protection Act guarantee you the above rights in the area of data protection. If you believe that one of these rights has been violated by our company, you have the option of complaining to a data protection supervisory authority. In Austria, the Austrian Data Protection Authority, Wickenburggasse 8, 1080 Vienna, is responsible for this. Claims against us to which you are entitled on the basis of other legal bases remain unaffected.
