Anti-Doping activities (eg Doping Control, Testing Pools, Therapeutic Use Exemptions, etc,) under the World Anti-Doping Code require the ITTF to process personal information. In this framework, a refusal to consent to the processing of personal information as required for this purpose may lead to negative consequences, such as preventing participation in organized sport.

The ITTF processes with personal information in compliance with the WADA International Standard for the Protection of Privacy and Personal Information (ISPPPI) and applicable local privacy and data protection laws. This includes, in particular:

Processing Personal Information

Personal information and data are processed by the ITTF staff, officers, and authorized third-party agents (such as IT providers, laboratories, Anti-Doping Organizations having jurisdiction, external anti-doping services providers and their staff) for the sole purpose of ITTF’s anti-doping activities, only on a need-to-know basis and where consistent with assigned roles and responsibilities.

Confidentiality Agreements

The ITTF ensures that confidentiality agreements and/or contractual confidentiality clauses are established with the above mentioned ITTF staff, officers and third-party agents.


The ITTF applies security safeguards (eg technical, organizational) to protect the  personal information it processes, and requires its third party agents to provide sufficient guarantees in respect of their own security safeguards.
In the event of a security breach, the ITTF shall inform affected persons where the breach is likely to affect in a significant way their rights and interests, about the nature, the possible negative consequences of the breach, and the remediation taken or to be taken.

ITTF Data Protection Officers

Any further question in relation to the processing of personal information by the ITTF, including, but not limited to, the type of information that may be processed, the retention times, the potential recipients of the personal information, the rights with respect to personal information, shall be addressed to the ITTF Data Protection Officers as follows:
