General Information on Data Processing

Scope of the processing of personal data

In principle, we process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in cases where prior consent can not be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU data protection regulation (DSGVO) as legal basis.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that is subject to our company, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO as legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO as legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO as legal basis for processing.

Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is eliminated. In addition, such storage may be provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. A blocking or deletion of the data takes place also, if a storage period prescribed by the mentioned norms expires, unless there is a necessity for the further storage of the data for a contract conclusion or a contract fulfillment.

Providing the website and creating logfiles

Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data is collected here:

  • the address (URL) of the web page from which the file was requested
  • is the name of the called file
  • the date and time of the request
  • the amount of data transferred
  • the access status (file transfer, file not found, etc.)
  • the description of the web browser type or operating system used
  • the anonymized IP address of the requesting machine.

The stored data is only needed for technical or statistical purposes; a comparison with other databases or even a transfer to third parties, even in excerpts, does not take place. The data is stored in the log files of our system. Not affected by this are the IP addresses of the user or other data that allow the assignment of the data to a user: Before saving each record is anonymized by changing the IP address. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

Additionally, further data is collected, processed and stored from all registered members. This data includes all information about lectures and exercise submissions:

  • Personal information that is provided during registration
  • Registrations for specific lectures incl. the settings done during this registration
  • Assignment to tutorials
  • Submissions incl. results, notes and submission partners

This information is required to offer the service. Organizers and tutors of lectores have access the personal data and all data linked to their specific lecture. Furthermore, some lectures forward the data to additional services (e.g., gitlab, hg, wiki). The responsible person for all of these services is the same above mentioned as for this service itself. The used services are announced in the first lecture or exercise session. Actively registering for a lecture serves as the confirmation to accept the forwarding of his data to the mentioned services.

The achievements are forwarded to the service (www.campus.uni-erlangen.de) provided by the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg to monitor a students study progress.

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and logfiles is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Purpose of data processing

Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the user's computer. To do this, the user's IP address must be saved for the duration of the session.

Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its survey. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is over.
In the case of storing the data in log files, this is the case after no more than four weeks. An additional storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

Opposition and disposal option

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is therefore no contradiction on the part of the user.
