The WKAA systems run system and application logs to the customary extent for the sole purpose of error analysis. This includes the IP address and, depending on the system used, the user’s browser if necessary. The legal basis for the processing of this data is the legitimate interest of the RC to ensure network and data security and the functioning of the systems and is not overridden by your privacy interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (Art 6 (1) f GDPR).

2.3 Data we receive

Occasionally we may receive personal data about you from external sources. We assume that third parties either have your consent or are otherwise legally authorised or compelled to disclose your personal data to us.

We use the personal data, including data we collect from third parties, for the following purposes:
• to maintain and improve the accuracy of the records we keep about you,
• to fulfil the purpose of the association in the best possible way,
• to process an enquiry/complaint concerning us.


We may pass on your personal data to the following recipients:

to Rotarians, who carry out diverse tasks, provide assistance and data processing services for us or who by other means process personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or which will be communicated to you when we collect your personal data.

to any other person provided you consent to the disclosure.


The legal basis for the collection and processing of personal data depends on the specific context in which we collect it.

Generally, we will only process your personal information if you have consented to us processing your data (Art 6 (1) a EU General Data Protection Regulation, “GDPR”), if we require your personal data for the performance of a contract with you (Art 6 (1) b GDPR), or if we have a legitimate interest for the processing that is not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (Art 6 (1) f GDPR).

If we process your personal data for other legitimate reasons not mentioned above (or those of a third party) we will inform you of these legitimate interests at the appropriate time.


We retain your personal data for as long as this is necessary to fulfil the purpose or if contractual or legal obligations or legitimate interests exist (e.g. to provide a service requested by you, to fulfil legal retention obligations or to assert legal claims).

As soon as there are no legitimate reasons for the further storage of your personal information, the data will either be deleted or made anonymous. If this is not possible (e.g. because your personal data has been stored in backup archives), we will store your personal data securely and not make it accessible to any further processing until it can be deleted.


In accordance with the law, you have the right to information about the personal data concerning you, as well as the right to have such personal data corrected or deleted, the right to restrict processing or to withdraw consent to processing, to data portability and to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The data protection authority responsible for the RC is the Austrian Data Protection Authority.

If we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of data processing carried out on the basis of this consent before it was withdrawn.

If personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes and this processing is not based on your consent, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this also includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

To exercise these rights, please write to us at or by post to RC Wien Albertina. We will examine your request and reply accordingly.


We may periodically update this Privacy Policy in the light of legal, technical or business developments. If we update our Privacy Policy, we will take appropriate measures to inform you of the changes we have made depending on their importance. For each substantial amendment to the privacy policy that we make we will obtain your consent if and to the extent required by the relevant data protection legislation. You can find the date of the “most recent update” at the beginning of this Privacy Policy.
