Provision and use of the website

Nature and scope of data processing

When you visit and use our website, we collect the personal data that your browser
automatically sends to our server. This information is stored temporarily in a log file. When you use our website, we collect the following data, which we require for technical reasons in order to deliver our website to you and to ensure stability and security:

  • IP address of the accessing computer,
  • date and time of access,
  • name and URL of file accessed,
  • data volume transferred,
  • notification of whether retrieval was successful,
  • identification data of the accessing browser and the operating system website from which our website was accessed.

Legal basis

Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the specified data processing. The processing of the specified data is required in order to provide a website and is thus in the legitimate interests of our university.

Storage duration

As soon as the specified data is no longer required to deliver the website, it is deleted. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, the user has no opt-out option. The data may be stored for longer than this period in individual cases if required by law.

Use of Cookies

Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your end device with the help of the browser. They do not cause any damage. We use cookies to make our offer user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit. If you do not wish this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases. When deactivating cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited.


Our website includes hyperlinks to websites provided by other parties. When you click on one of these hyperlinks, you are forwarded from our website directly to the website of the other provider. You can tell this has happened by the fact that the URL changes, among other things. We cannot accept any responsibility for the confidential handling of your data on these third-party websites because we have no influence over whether these companies comply with data protection regulations. For information on how these companies handle your personal data, please refer directly to the websites concerned.

Conference submissions and registration

Submission of contributions to the conference and registration of participants are handled by external websites with separate privacy statements:

Disclosure of Data

We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • there is a legal obligation to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) (c) GDPR;
  • the disclosure is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR for the purposes of legitimate company interests, or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in your data not being disclosed.

Rights of data subjects

You have a right of access to check whether and which personal data we hold about you; a right to rectify your personal data that is incorrect, a right to erasure of your personal data that is not (any longer) processed in accordance with the law and, in this context, a right to restriction of processing. You also have a right to data portability. If the processing is based on consent, you have the right to revoke the consent you have given at any time without giving reasons. You have a right to erasure of personal data if you withdraw the consent on which the processing was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing. The lawfulness of the data processing up to the time of your revocation remains unaffected. Insofar as we base any processing of your personal data on overriding legitimate interests, you have a right to object. Please contact the office indicated under data controller regarding all of these rights. You also have a right of appeal to the data protection authority:

Data security and security measures

We are committed to protecting your privacy and treating your personal data as confidential. To prevent any manipulation, loss or misuse of your personal data that we store, we implement extensive technical and organisational security measures that are reviewed on a regular basis and adapted in accordance with technological developments. These measures include the use of recognised encryption methods (TLS). However, due to the structure of the internet, the data protection regulations and the security measures specified above may not be observed by other persons or institutions outside of our area of responsibility. In particular, data disclosed in unencrypted form (data sent via email) may be read by third parties. We do not have any influence over this from a technical perspective. It is the responsibility of the users to protect the data that they provide against misuse by means of encryption or by other means.
