The Alumni Club FH OÖ is particularly concerned about the protection of your personal data. This privacy policy regulates the handling of personal data and explains how we collect, store, process and, if necessary, pass on your personal data if you are a member of the Alumni Club FH OÖ. We process your data exclusively on the basis of the relevant legal provisions.




The Alumni Club FH OÖ is the association responsible for data protection (the "responsible body"). It is an association with its registered office in Austria, 4020 Linz, Garnisonstrasse 21. ZVR number 891193562. Important cornerstones of our handling of data

2.1 Collecting data

In the course of processing your application for membership in the Alumni Club FH OÖ, we collect personal data such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, etc. (see point 3).

2.2 Use of data

We use your data for membership administration and for the transmission of information concerning the association's activities or the association's purpose. You can find out more about this under point 4.

2.3 Sharing and providing data

In general, we do not share your data with persons or organisations which are not within the sphere of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austriaa). Exceptions are external service providers, lecturers, coaches, companies and software providers with whom the Alumni Club cooperates. Personal data will only be passed on or permission to collect such data will only be granted to the extent absolutely necessary for the fulfilment of the contract. Concrete examples of this are the use of commercially available software to simplify registration for events and to distribute information and newsletters. You also allow us to pass on data to dispatch service providers for the one-time postal distribution of special offers as well as to coaches, lecturers and company representatives* if, from their point of view, this is necessary to prepare an event in which you participate.

However, certain personal data such as your first and last name, the employer (company) registered with us and the degree programmes completed at the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences can be viewed by other logged-in Alumni Club members in the results lists of the internal member search in the password-protected club lounge at any time after you have joined. Other personal data entered by you in mandatory and optional input fields marked with a footnote will only be displayed in the internal member search if you explicitly release their display. You can revoke this release at any time. Upon request of a regular Alumni Club FH OÖ member who participated in an Alumni Club FH OÖ event which you also attended, we may also pass on your first and last name to the requesting member.

a)In addition to the Alumni Club FH OÖ, all legally independent companies of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria belong to the sphere of the FH Upper Austria. Due to the technical infrastructure shared with the Alumni Club FH Upper Austria, these companies have access to your personal data, which will not be stored separately or used or processed in any other way (e.g. for contacting you) without your explicit consent. The Alumni Club FH OÖ may request personal data of students who fill out a membership application form at a faculty of the FH Upper Austria by hand to the extent necessary to generate a new Alumni Club member profile.

2.4. Your rights

In accordance with the applicable data protection laws, you have rights in relation to your personal data processed by us. You can read more about this below.

2.5 Cookies, Google Analytics and Social Plugins (Website)

Detailed information regarding the collection and use of personal data using cookies, Google Analytics and social plug-ins on our website can be found in this document.

2.6 Security measures

We implement appropriate and sufficient security controls to protect your information. For the security and protection of your personal data, the Alumni Club FH Oberösterreich uses appropriate security technologies and procedures according to the current state of the art and implements technical, physical or administrative security measures (e.g. firewall, access and access restrictions, data encryption etc.). This is done to protect against unauthorized access, loss, transfer or modification, misuse or unauthorized disclosure of your data.

2.7. Storing data

We store personal data for the duration of your membership. In the event of termination during the current calendar year, your data will no longer be actively used, for example for contacting you, from the time of termination requested by you. Personal data will be deleted as soon as possible, but no later than 31 January of the calendar year following the cancellation. This extended storage period is necessary because the association has a legitimate interest in the preparation of detailed annual withdrawal statistics. Any storage beyond this period will only be carried out to the extent required by the current (May 2018) case law.
