Thank you for your interest in our project. Data protection is very important to us. In principle, our website can be used without providing any personal data. However, if an individual wants to use special services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of an individual shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Freiberg University of Mining and Technology. By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, individuals are informed of the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.
The Freiberg University of Mining and Technology, as the controller responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.
