3. Collection of personal data

personal data are collected as follows:

3.1. Availability of web pages and creation of log files
3.1.1. Description and categories of data 

When you visit this or other web pages, you send data to our web server via your web browser. The following data are retained temporarily in a log file during an ongoing connection only in the case of an error:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of the access
  • Name, URL, and amount of transferred data from the requested file
  • Access status (requested file transferred, not found, etc.)
  • Browser type and operating system (if sent by the requesting web browser)
  • Web page from which access was obtained (if sent by the requesting web browser)

The data in this log file are processed as follows:

  • In individual cases, i.e., reported defects, errors, and security incidents, a manual analysis is conducted.

3.1.2. Purpose

The system needs to temporarily store the user’s IP address to enable the website to be sent to the user’s computer. The user’s IP address must be retained for the duration of the session.
The data are stored in a log file as a means of ensuring the proper functioning of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and guarantee the security of our information technology systems. The IP addresses included in the log entries are not combined with other retained data unless there are actual indications that there has been a disruption of proper operation.
These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in processing data in accordance with § 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

3.1.3. Legal basis

The legal basis for the temporary retention of the data and the log files is § 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3.1.4. Recipient

In the case that investigative measures are initiated due to attacks on our information technology system, the data and log files named above under 3.1. may be passed on to state investigative bodies (e.g., police, public prosecutor).
The same applies if these bodies or courts direct inquiries at the university and the university is obligated to comply with them.

3.1.5. Duration of data retention

The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of data collected to make the website available, this is the case at the end of the relevant session.
The data retained in log files are deleted after seven days.

3.1.6. Consequences of nondisclosure, possibility of objection or removal

The collection of data for the purpose of making the website available and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Users who do not want their data to be processed as described may contact the university in other ways (by telephone, in writing, in person) to obtain information or perform functions available on the website.

3.2. Use of cookies
3.2.1. Description and categories of data 

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files stored on the user’s computer system by the internet browser. If a user calls up a website, a cookie can be stored on the user’s computer system.

3.2.2. Purpose

The purpose of using the technically necessary cookies named under 3.2.1 is to simplify the use of the website for the user. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these functions, it is necessary for the browser to be recognized when the user visits the website again later after leaving it.

The purpose of each cookie is listed in the table under 3.2.1.

The user data collected by the cookies are not used to create user profiles.

These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in processing personal data in accordance with § 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3.2.5. Duration of data retention

The cookies are retained for the periods listed in the table under 3.2.1. Since the cookies are stored on your computer, you also have the possibility of deleting them earlier. 

3.2.6. Consequences of nondisclosure, possibility of objection or removal

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted to our site from it. As the user, you therefore also have complete control over the use of cookies – irrespective of the retention periods listed above. You can deactivate or limit the transfer of cookies by changing the settings of your web browser. You can also delete already stored cookies at any time. You can even set your browser to do this automatically. If you deactivate cookies for our website, you may no longer be able to use all functions of the website to their full extent.


4. Your rights

  • You have the right to receive information from the RTG2344 on your personal data that has been retained and/or to have retained data that is incorrect corrected.

    You also have the right to demand that your data be deleted or that the processing thereof be restricted as well as to object to the processing of your data.

    If you have given us your consent to process your personal data, you also have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The legality of any processing performed on the grounds of the consent prior to its withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal of consent. For more information, please contact us at If the processing of data is based on consent or on a formal agreement, we will refer you to the proper authority.

    If the data is also processed in automated form, you may have a right to data portability (§ 20 EU-GDPR).
