Data Pri­va­cy

I. Gen­er­al Pre­lim­i­nary Remarks

The cen­tral web serv­er togeth­er with the indi­vid­ual sites belong­ing to the Uni­ver­si­ty of Bre­men present the Uni­ver­si­ty inter­nal­ly and exter­nal­ly, dis­sem­i­nate infor­ma­tion and sup­port the tasks of the uni­ver­si­ty. The web pres­ence has an inde­pen­dent, uni­form design. How­ev­er, the uni­ver­si­ty insti­tutes and Fac­ul­ties have a cer­tain free­dom when it comes to the indi­vid­ual design of their home­pages and in this con­text also bear their own responsibility.

II. Respon­si­bil­i­ties and Competences

No guar­an­tee is giv­en for the oper­a­tion or for the cor­rect­ness and top­i­cal­i­ty of the infor­ma­tion con­tained in the web pres­ence. The Cen­ter for Net­works at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Bre­men is respon­si­ble for the oper­a­tion of the serv­er. The respec­tive edi­tors are respon­si­ble for the orga­ni­za­tion in the indi­vid­ual Fac­ul­ties. The Uni­ver­si­ty Exec­u­tive Board has gen­er­al respon­si­bil­i­ty for con­tent and decides in case of doubt about the admis­si­bil­i­ty of the data. The Con­tent Man­age­ment (Unit 03, Uni­ver­si­ty Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Mar­ket­ing) main­tains the land­ing pages of the cen­tral web­site at Oth­er­wise, the depart­ments, units, Fac­ul­ties and insti­tu­tions of the Uni­ver­si­ty are respon­si­ble for the con­tents they present.

III. Gen­er­al Infor­ma­tion about Data Processing

(1) The Uni­ver­si­ty of Bre­men takes data pri­va­cy very seri­ous­ly. We process the per­son­al data col­lect­ed when vis­it­ing our web­sites in full com­pli­ance with the applic­a­ble data pri­va­cy reg­u­la­tions. These include, in par­tic­u­lar, the EU Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (DS-GVO), the Bre­men Imple­men­ta­tion Act on the EU Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (BremDS­GVOAG) and the Bre­men Uni­ver­si­ty Law (Sec­tion 11 BremHG) and the Tele­me­dia Act (TMG) apply.

(2) In prin­ci­ple, we process per­son­al data of our users only inso­far as this is nec­es­sary to pro­vide a func­tion­ing web­site and present con­tent and ser­vices (see points 6 and 7). The pro­cess­ing of our users’ per­son­al data takes place only after obtain­ing their con­sent. An excep­tion applies in cas­es where pri­or con­sent is de fac­to not pos­si­ble and the sub­se­quent pro­cess­ing is per­mit­ted by law. Any use of your per­son­al data takes place sole­ly for the stat­ed pur­pos­es and to the extent nec­es­sary to serve these pur­pos­es.

(3) Your data will nei­ther be pub­lished by us nor with­out autho­riza­tion passed on to third par­ties. We point out, how­ev­er, that we are enti­tled in indi­vid­ual cas­es and on the order of the com­pe­tent bod­ies to pro­vide infor­ma­tion on col­lect­ed data for law enforce­ment pur­pos­es, to aid the police forces of the Län­der in the pre­ven­tion of risks and the Fed­er­al Intel­li­gence Ser­vice in ful­fill­ing the statu­to­ry duties of the con­sti­tu­tion­al pro­tec­tion author­i­ties of the Fed­er­al Gov­ern­ment and the Län­der (legal basis Arti­cle 6 sec­tion 1 item c DS-GVO).
In the fol­low­ing, we wish to inform you about the nature, scope and pur­pose of the col­lec­tion and use of per­son­al data.

1. Data col­lec­tion and pro­cess­ing when access­ing from the Internet

(1) When you vis­it our web­site, our web servers auto­mat­i­cal­ly save each access in a log file.

(2) This data is stored sep­a­rate­ly from oth­er data that you enter when using the web­site. It is not pos­si­ble for us to assign this data to a spe­cif­ic per­son. No stor­age of this data or oth­er per­son­al data of the user takes place. The stor­age in log files serves to ensure the func­tion­al­i­ty of the web­site. In addi­tion, the data is used to opti­mize the web­site and to ensure the secu­ri­ty of our IT sys­tems. This data is used in anonymized form for the sta­tis­ti­cal eval­u­a­tion of our web­site with AWStats and sub­se­quent­ly delet­ed. The legal basis for the tem­po­rary stor­age of data and log files is Arti­cle 6 sec­tion (1) item (f) DS-GVO.

The fol­low­ing data is recorded:

  • The IP address of the request­ing computer
  • Date and time of access
  • Access method / func­tion desired by the request­ing computer
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file
  • Trans­mit­ted amount of data
  • Access sta­tus of the web serv­er (file trans­fer, file not found, com­mand not exe­cut­ed, etc.)
  • The URL from which access is acquired

(3) The login for access to pro­tect­ed areas is par­tial­ly logged in order to detect attempts at abuse and pass­word attacks. There­by, no data is stored with the help of which per­son­al pro­files could be cre­at­ed about the user’s behav­ior.

(4) The col­lec­tion of such data and the stor­age of the data in log files is essen­tial for the pro­vi­sion and the oper­a­tion of the web­site. There is con­se­quent­ly no pos­si­bil­i­ty for users to protest such use.

2. Cook­ies

(1) Our web­sites use cook­ies in sev­er­al places. They serve to make our offer more user-friend­ly and effec­tive. Cook­ies are small text files that are stored by the brows­er on your com­put­er. Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called ses­sion cook­ies (legal basis, Arti­cle 6 sec­tion 1 item f DS-GVO), which are delet­ed when you end your brows­er ses­sion.

The fol­low­ing cook­ies are set:

  • ses­sion cook­ies (for ses­sion detec­tion, dura­tion: one session)
  • TYPO3 ses­sion cook­ie (for ses­sion detec­tion, dura­tion, one session)
  • JavaScript cook­ie for sound (for audio on / off, dura­tion: one session)
  • Mato­mo Cook­ies for web ana­lyt­ics (see sec­tion Analy­sis Services)

(2) In your brows­er set­tings, you can spec­i­fy whether cook­ies may be set or not.

3. Web analy­sis by Mato­mo (for­mer­ly PIWIK)

(1) Our web­site uses Mato­mo, which is a so-called web analy­sis ser­vice. Mato­mo uses so-called cook­ies, i.e. text files that are stored on your com­put­er and that enable us to ana­lyze the use of the web­site.

(2) For this pur­pose, the usage infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by means of the cook­ie (includ­ing your short­ened IP address) is trans­mit­ted to our serv­er and stored for usage analy­sis pur­pos­es. With the aid of these sta­tis­tics we can improve our offer and make it more inter­est­ing for you as a user. Your IP address will be imme­di­ate­ly anonymized dur­ing this process so that you remain anony­mous to us as a user. The anonymiza­tion of the IP address suf­fi­cient­ly takes into account the inter­est of users in the pro­tec­tion of their per­son­al data. The infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie about your use of this web­site will not be dis­closed to third par­ties. You may refuse the use of cook­ies by select­ing the appro­pri­ate set­tings on your brows­er. How­ev­er, in that case you may not be able to use the full func­tion­al­i­ty of the web­site.

(3) The legal basis for the use of Mato­mo is Arti­cle 6 (1) item f DS-GVO.

(4) If you do not agree with the stor­age and eval­u­a­tion of data from your vis­it, then you can object to the stor­age with a mouse click at any time. In this case, a so-called opt-out cook­ie is stored in your brows­er, with the result that Mato­mo is no longer able to col­lect any ses­sion data. N.B. If you delete your cook­ies, this also means that the opt-out cook­ie will also be delet­ed and may need to be reac­ti­vat­ed. More infor­ma­tion about the pri­va­cy set­tings of the Mato­mo soft­ware can be found at the fol­low­ing link: Cook­ie settings

4. Data security

(1) Our tech­ni­cal-orga­ni­za­tion­al secu­ri­ty mea­sures, with which we pro­tect all data from the access of unau­tho­rized per­sons, are always kept up-to-date. As far as your data is col­lect­ed and record­ed by us, it is stored on spe­cial­ly pro­tect­ed servers. These are pro­tect­ed by tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­za­tion­al mea­sures against loss, destruc­tion, access, mod­i­fi­ca­tion or dis­tri­b­u­tion by unau­tho­rized per­sons. Access to your data is only pos­si­ble for a lim­it­ed num­ber of autho­rized per­sons. All our employ­ees are sworn to con­fi­den­tial­i­ty. Per­son­al infor­ma­tion is always trans­mit­ted in encrypt­ed form. The trans­mit­ted data is stored in a data­base that is only acces­si­ble to administrators.

(2) We point out, how­ev­er, that data trans­mis­sion via the Inter­net (for exam­ple, when com­mu­ni­cat­ing by email) may be vul­ner­a­ble secu­ri­ty wise. There is no com­plete pro­tec­tion from the data being accessed by third parties.

5. Links to web­sites of oth­er providers

Our Inter­net pages con­tain links (ref­er­ences) to exter­nal web­sites of third par­ties. Our web­sites may also con­tain links to exter­nal social net­works; how­ev­er, no plug-ins belong­ing to these net­works are used. These web­sites are sub­ject to the lia­bil­i­ty of the respec­tive oper­a­tor. There­fore, we can­not assume any lia­bil­i­ty for these exter­nal con­tents. At the time the links are includ­ed, there is no evi­dence of ille­gal con­tents on the respec­tive pages. How­ev­er, we have no influ­ence on the cur­rent and future design and con­tent of the linked sites. A per­ma­nent con­trol of these third par­ty sites would be unrea­son­able. If we become aware of a vio­la­tion, we will remove the link imme­di­ate­ly. When you leave this site, it is rec­om­mend­ed that you care­ful­ly read the pri­va­cy pol­i­cy of each web­site first.

6. YouTube

Our web­sites use an iFrame of the Google Inc. pow­ered YouTube site. The oper­a­tor of these pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cher­ry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you vis­it one of our YouTube iFrame-equipped sites, you will be con­nect­ed to the servers of YouTube. It tells the YouTube serv­er which of our pages you’ve vis­it­ed. If you’re logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to asso­ciate your brows­ing behav­ior direct­ly with your per­son­al pro­file. You can pre­vent this by log­ging out of your YouTube account. The legal basis is Arti­cle 6 sec­tion 1 item f). For more infor­ma­tion on how user data is han­dled, please refer to the YouTube Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy at https.//

7. Inte­grat­ed Maps from Google Maps

The web­site con­tains embed­ded maps from Google Maps to illus­trate the university’s loca­tions. The maps from Google Maps are a prod­uct of Google LLC, 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA. When you vis­it a page with an embed­ded map, your brows­er usu­al­ly con­nects direct­ly to Google’s servers. By doing so, Google receives the infor­ma­tion that your com­put­er has called up the cor­re­spond­ing page of our web­site. This will also give Google your computer’s IP address and infor­ma­tion about your brows­er. Google will receive this infor­ma­tion even if you do not have a Google account. If you are logged in to your Google account when you vis­it the site, it is pos­si­ble that Google may asso­ciate this direct­ly with your account. If you use cer­tain ser­vices of Google on the device used for retrieval and have not object­ed to access to your loca­tion data, pro­cess­ing of your loca­tion data may also occur in con­nec­tion with access­ing the page with the map. It is to be assumed that Google will use your data men­tioned for com­mer­cial pur­pos­es in addi­tion to enabling use, opti­miza­tion, and pre­ven­tion of mis­use. For more infor­ma­tion on data pro­tec­tion at Google, please vis­it There you will also find infor­ma­tion on how you can restrict the pro­cess­ing of your data at Google. The uni­ver­si­ty has no influ­ence on the pro­cess­ing of data at Google.

8. Con­tact form

(1) If you send us inquiries via the con­tact form, your details from the appli­ca­tion form, includ­ing the con­tact details you pro­vid­ed there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of fol­low-up ques­tions. We do not share this data. In order to answer your ques­tions, though, pro­vi­sion of your name and your email address is manda­to­ry.

(2) In case of your con­sent, the legal basis is Arti­cle 6 (1) item a DS-GVO.

(3) The grant­ed con­sent to the stor­age of the email address can be revoked at any time. In order to do so, you can con­tact the above men­tioned address­es or send an email to the fol­low­ing address: In this case, all the per­son­al data stored in the course of mak­ing the con­tact will be deleted.

9. Newslet­ter data

(1) If you would like to receive newslet­ters that may be offered on the web­site, we need an email address from you, as well as infor­ma­tion that allows you to ver­i­fy that you are the own­er of the email address pro­vid­ed and that you agree to the receipt of the newslet­ter. Fur­ther data is not col­lect­ed. We use this data exclu­sive­ly for the deliv­ery of the request­ed infor­ma­tion and do not pass it on to third parties.

(2) You may revoke your con­sent to the stor­age of the data, the email address and its use for send­ing the newslet­ter at any time, for exam­ple via the “unsub­scribe” link in the newsletter.

(3) Legal basis for the pro­cess­ing of the data after reg­is­tra­tion for the newslet­ter is in the case of the user’s con­sent Arti­cle 6 sec­tion (1) item a DS-GVO.

(4) The data will be delet­ed as soon as they are no longer nec­es­sary for the achieve­ment of the pur­pose. The user’s email address is stored only as long as the sub­scrip­tion to the newslet­ter is active.

10. SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryp­tion for secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of sen­si­tive con­tent, such as the requests you send to us as the site oper­a­tor. You can rec­og­nize an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion when the address line of the brows­er changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and the lock sym­bol appears in your brows­er line. When SSL encryp­tion is enabled, it is vir­tu­al­ly impos­si­ble for third par­ties to read the data you trans­mit to us.

IV. Rights of the Data Subject

Inso­far as the Uni­ver­si­ty of Bre­men process­es the per­son­al data you pro­vide, you, as the per­son affect­ed, are enti­tled in accor­dance with DS-GVO to the fol­low­ing rights:
