Declaration of Consent | Data Protection at Events​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The protection of your personal data is of special importance to us. Consequently, we process your data exclusively on the basis of the relevant legal provisions, such as the GDPR as well as applicable national data protection regulations, including in particular the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG) and the Austrian Telecommunications Act (TKG 2003). In this data privacy statement, we provide you with information on the most important aspects of the data processing which takes place in the context of our events.


Image and audio material

We would like to inform you that at events of Engineering Center Steyr GmbH & Co KG photos will be taken and videos made for the purpose of representing and presenting the company.

With your participation at the event, you consent to the creation of image and audio material. This could be done by employees of the company as well as by their contractual partners, including in particular photographers and agencies.

The image and audio material produced will be made available for all participants for download on our web pages in the section for registered users. Furthermore selected image and audio material will be used on the Internet on our websites,,,,,,,, and will also be published on our local - and Magna Powertrain – Intranet (,, MagNET). In addition, selected images and videos might also be used for advertisements in various print media, such as newspapers and magazines, flyers (products, HR, events), brochures, folders for training events, posters, banners and roll-ups as well as for event invitations and on social media („LinkedIn“, „Xing“, „Facebook“, „Instagram“ and „Twitter“). In the course of publication we will respect the legitimate interest within the meaning of copyright law (UrhG) and verify images and videos accordingly.

To carry out the publications described above, the data processing might also include transfer of the image and audio material produced to Magna International Inc. and Magna Powertrain Inc. In the event that data transfers take place in this context to third countries – countries outside of the European Economic Area – in which it is possible that the data protection level is inadequate, we obtain corresponding guarantees that the relevant, applicable data protection regulations are complied with.


Publication on the Internet

We would like to inform you that information on the Internet is accessible worldwide and can be found with search engines and can be linked with other information which could conceivably allow the creation of personality profiles. Once information has been placed on the Internet, it can easily be copied and further processed. There are specialized archiving services with the objective of permanently documenting the state of certain websites at certain times. This can have the effect that information that has been published on the Internet once can still be found even after it has been erased from the original site.

Based on information known at this time, data cannot be deleted on social media platforms; it is instead archived and, as a result, no longer simply displayed publicly. Insufficient information is available at this time regarding the internal use of data by such platform providers, such as for use in creating personality profiles.



Publication on the Internet does not contain any express virtual ban for search engines.

For children under 16 years of age, you must ensure that the legal guardian consents.

In the event that you do not consent to data processing for the purpose of using the image and audio material, we have prepared corresponding measures for you. Please contact our employees in this matter at the time of registration or the contact information above.


Your rights

Your consent is granted for an indefinite period of time. Your consent does not give rise to any rights such as remuneration. Your consent is voluntary. If you do not consent, there will be no disadvantages for you.

Your consent can be withdrawn at any time in text form effective for the future. You can reach us at our business address of Engineering Center Steyr GmbH & Co KG, Steyrer Strasse 32, 4300 Sankt Valentin, Austria as well as via email at datenschutz.valentin.mpt(at)

Promotional material in which you can be recognized and which substantially shows only you will then be removed from all of the digital media listed above and will no longer be used for new print media. If you are shown on a photo or in a video together with other people, the image does not have to be removed, but it is instead sufficient for you to be obscured in the image for any reuse of the material.

Of course, we are available to you at any time for information concerning data protection on our website.

Your right to lodge a complaint with the Austrian Data Protection Authority remains untouched.
