After submission of the application, the data protection officer of TU Wien, in cooperation with the data protection coordinators and data protection contact persons of the faculty in question and/or the rectorate, will arrange for erasure or rectification.  

Under article 19 GDPR, TU Wien is obliged to notify all recipients of erasure or rectification of personal data to whom this data was disclosed. This is not necessary if it proves to be impossible or would only involve a disproportionate expense.
