Unless permitted by law, we will not collect, use or disclose your information for any purpose without first obtaining your consent. However, we may seek consent to use and disclose Personal Information after it has been collected in those cases where we wish to use the Personal Information for a new or different purpose.


In most cases, and subject to legal and contractual restrictions, you are free to refuse or withdraw your consent at any time upon reasonable advance notice. It should be noted that there may be certain portions of the Platform or Services that will only be made available to you if you provide specific Personal Information to us.

We may disclose your information:

  1. to individuals or organisations who are involved in:
  • providing the Platform or Services;
  • providing vETS LAB with products and services (e.g., the Learning Management System Moodle and its services used for vETS LAB);
  • maintaining, reviewing or developing our business systems, procedures or infrastructure, including, without limitation, testing or upgrading of our computer systems;

for any other purpose to which you consent.

Where we disclose your information to individuals or organisations as stated above, we will endeavour to require those individuals and organisations to collect, use and disclose your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Please note that there are circumstances where the use and/or disclosure of your information may be justified or permitted or where we are obliged to disclose your information without consent. Such circumstances may include:

  1. where required by law or by order or requirement of a court, administrative or law enforcement agency or governmental entity;
  2. where we believe, upon reasonable grounds, that it is necessary to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of vETS LAB partners, or its staff, affiliates, users or other third parties;
  3. where required to identify, contact, communicate or take action against an individual who is suspected of violating the Terms of Service; or
  4. where the information is publicly available.

Where obliged or permitted to disclose your Personal Information without consent, we will disclose no more Personal Information than is reasonably required. In addition, and subject to legal and contractual restrictions, aggregate and/or anonymiaed information may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify you.


We endeavour to ensure that any Personal Information in our possession is as accurate, current and complete as necessary for the purposes for which we use and/or disclose such Personal Information. If we become aware that your Personal Information in our possession is inaccurate, out-of-date or incomplete, we will endeavour to revise such Personal Information accordingly.

We will retain your Personal Information only for so long as it is required for the purposes it was collected or to comply with applicable laws. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with us, but it will be only for so long as it is reasonably necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise after the end of your relationship with us or as required by applicable laws. When your Personal Information is no longer required, we will destroy, delete or convert it into an anonymous form.


We endeavour to maintain appropriate physical, procedural and technical safeguards with respect to our offices and information storage facilities in order to prevent any loss, misuse, or unauthorised access, disclosure, or modification of Personal Information.

We further protect Personal Information by restricting access to Personal Information to those employees, contractors, advisers, affiliates and service providers that the management of vETS LAB has determined reasonably require access to such information for any of the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy.

Despite these efforts, please note that no data transmission or storage efforts can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us.

PLEASE NOTE: Some or all of your Personal Information that we collect may be stored or processed on servers located in the United States of America and in other areas outside your jurisdiction of residence, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. As a result, this information may be subject to disclosure to governments, courts, or law enforcement agencies in those jurisdictions according to the laws in those jurisdictions and without notice to us or you. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that jurisdiction to maintain protections of your Personal Information that are equivalent to those that apply in the jurisdictions in which you live.


We will permit you to access to, correct, and have deleted your Personal Information as reasonably requested by you, and will endeavour to provide such access, or have your information corrected or deleted (as the case may be) within a reasonable period, generally no later than 30 days following the request.

Subject to applicable law, we reserve the right to refuse to apply requested changes to your Personal Information if we reasonably believe that such changes are inaccurate, out-of-date, or incomplete.

Subject to applicable law, we reserve the right to refuse to provide access to Personal Information where the Personal Information requested:

  1. would disclose: (i) Personal Information (including, without limitation, opinions) about another individual or about a deceased individual; or (ii) trade secrets or other confidential information that may harm vETS LAB consortium, or its staff, licensors, affiliates, users or a third party;
  2. would interfere with contractual or other negotiations of vETS LAB, or its staff, licensors, affiliates, users or another third party;
  3. is subject to attorney-client, litigation or other legal privilege;
  4. is not readily retrievable and the burden or cost of retrieving such Personal Information would be disproportionate to the nature or value of such Personal Information;
  5. does not exist, is not held, or cannot be located by us;
  6. could reasonably result in (i) serious harm to the treatment or recovery of the individual concerned, (ii) serious emotional harm to the individual concerned or another individual, or (iii) serious bodily harm to another individual;
  7. may harm or interfere with law enforcement activities or other investigative or regulatory functions of a body authorized by law to perform such functions; or
  8. is requested to be withheld by law or by order or requirement of a court, administrative or law enforcement agency or governmental entity.

Subject to applicable law, we reserve the right to refuse to delete your Personal Information. For example, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to detect security incidents and protect against fraudulent or illegal activity.

Where we refuse to correct, provide access to, or delete Personal Information requested by you, we will inform you as to the reasons for our refusal. To guard against fraudulent requests for access, correction, or deletion we may require additional information to allow us to confirm that the individual making the request is authorised to do so before granting access, making corrections to, or deleting such Personal Information.

We will not charge you for accessing, correcting, or deleting your Personal Information, however, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we may charge you a fee if you request a copy of any records containing your Personal Information, or if your request is excessive or manifestly unfounded.

You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose your Personal Information using any of these features, your Personal Information may be collected, used or disclosed by such persons without restriction. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties, identity theft and other harm to you. Any Personal Information that you disclose to such persons is entirely at your own risk. We assume no responsibility or liability as to any harm that you may suffer as a result of such activities.


To the extent applicable, the parties will comply with the Austrian laws.  You agree that you are a human being and shall make all required disclosures about the Platform and perform all required obligations in connection therewith.  We shall be a Service Provider (as defined in this agreement) and certify that we shall not retain, use, or disclose Personal Information (as defined in this document) owned by you for any purpose other than for the specific purpose of providing the Platform and as otherwise permitted by this agreement.


We are committed to protecting our Platform User’s data in compliance with GDPR.

If you have any complaints regarding our privacy practices, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to your local supervisory authority. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach your supervisory authority so please contact us in the first instance.

If you would like to exercise any of your rights under GDPR, you can contact our site administrator at the address provided on the Platform. Please note that in order for you to assert these rights, we may need to verify your identity to confirm your right to access your personal data.  This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. In order to verify your identity, we may need to gather more personal data from you than we currently have.


We do not knowingly collect information from anyone under the age of 16. If we are made aware that we have received such information, or any information in violation of our policy, we will use reasonable efforts to locate and remove that information from our records.
