Data Protection Declaration – Online Application for isa – International Summer Academy of the mdw

The University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (mdw) accords great importance to the protection of your personal data. For this reason, and in keeping with applicable data protection regulations, we would like to inform you about the collection, processing, and use of your data as part of your online registration for isa – International Summer Academy of the mdw.

Before providing us with your data, please carefully read through the following information and rules.

Data Collection

The mdw is responsible for the data processing work at issue in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As part of your online registration for this conference, we require a few items of information pertaining to your person and therefore collect and process the following data:

Obligatory fields: first and last name, gender, nationality, birth date, birth place and country, E-mail address, phone number, street address, postal code and municipality, country, portrait photograph, university, CV, demo recordings (audio or video), letter of recommendation

Additionally, your web browser automatically sends us technical data when you visit our website; this data includes indication of the browser used, information on your operating system, your IP address, the time and date of your visit, and—if applicable—a referrer URL. This data is collected exclusively for statistical purposes and for the continual adaptation of our online presence based on user needs; it will not be combined with the data from your online registration.

The data you send to us may be used to compile statistics. This, however, takes place in anonymised form and strictly for internal purposes.

Purpose and Legal Basis for Data Processing; Deletion of Data

The personal information you provide will be treated confidentially and used to facilitate the smooth processing of your registration for the isa – International Summer Academy of the mdw as well as for the administration and conduct of the International Summer Academy. In doing so, we comply with applicable legal regulations. The legal basis upon which we process such data is constituted by our fulfilment of the contract concluded with the affected individual as well as legal requirements to which the mdw is subject and—where necessary—our obligation to document the consent of the affected person regarding any optional additional information provided.

If you are legally or contractually obligated to provide your personal data for such data processing, or if this is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, your failure to provide the associated data can cause the mdw to be unable to fulfil its obligations to you.

The storage and deletion of the data thus sent takes place in conformance with legal regulations; in particular, there are regulations in force that may preclude deletion of your data or require continued storage for the purpose of providing evidence. Your data will, however, be deleted after seven years at the latest.

Data Security

In order to ensure the security of your data, we protect it using physical, administrative, and electronic processes. Data transfers are therefore encrypted. Furthermore, your data can only be accessed by those individuals who need it in order to fulfil their work responsibilities.


We use cookies in order to make the mdw website as user-friendly as possible. Cookies already on your computer can be deleted at any time, and the user guide of your browser contains instructions on how to do so.
