Data protection policy

The protection of your personal data is important to us
This data protection declaration informs users of the website and associated sub-domains about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the “Hochschülerinnen- und Hochschülerschaft an der IMC FH Krems”. We process data exclusively on the basis of the statutory provisions (DSGVO, TKG 2003) and explain the possible data processing within the framework of our website below. We point out that the transmission of data on the Internet (e.g. by e-mail) has security gaps and complete protection of the data against access by third parties cannot be guaranteed. We therefore assume no liability for any damage caused by such security gaps.

The automatic archiving takes place after approx. 1 month.
