Privacy policy

Data privacy statement

We, the Technische Universität Dresden Institute of Advanced Studies GmbH (TUDIAS), welcome you to our website and are happy about your interest. We take data protection of our online service very seriously. Following this, you will receive all information required in regard to this topic.

Processing of personal data is always carried out in accordance with the provisions applicable in regard to data protection, especially the General Data Protection Regulation. As far as you want to make use of specific services of our company via our website, the processing of personal data may be required. When personal data (e.g. name, address, telephone number or email address) is collected, this will be carried out voluntarily, if possible. When the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal foundation for such processing available, in general we obtain the consent of the person concerned.

We store this data as long as you want to make use of this respective service. Afterwards, this data will be deleted. We, of course, treat your personal data confidentially and will not pass it on to third parties. At any time, you can ask for information about your data (find more information in paragraph “User rights”).

As being responsible for the processing, TUDIAS has implemented numerous technological and organisational measures to guarantee potentially consistent protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, web based data transmissions can present security flaws so that an absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, it is up to every person concerned to also transmit personal data to us via alternative ways, e.g. by telephone.

2. Collection of general data and information (data of records)


When selecting our website, the data of the user such as the IP address of the computer, the internet server provider of internet browsers used (including version), the operating system, date and time of the use, the duration of the visit as well as websites via which the system of the user gets on to our site or which will be selected by the system of the user via our website, will be recorded for technological reasons and stored in the log files of our system. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to make a delivery of the website to your computer possible. For this purpose, the IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is required to ensure the functioning of the website and the security of our IT systems. Legal basis for the storage of data is Article 6, section 1, letter f of the GDPR (legitimate interests). A merger with other data of the user will not be carried out. The data in the log files will automatically be deleted after a week.

The collection of data to provide the website and the storage of data in log files is imperatively required for the operation of the website. Therefore, there is no possibility to object to it on the part of the user.



3. Registration on our website

On our website, we offer the possibility to register under specification of personal data by means of an entry mask. The registration will only be carried out voluntarily, i.e. within the scope of your consent according to Article 6, section 1, letter a of the GDPR.

This data will not be forwarded to third parties.

At any time, you will of course have the possibility to revoke your consent by logging out and your account will be deleted. Subsequently, your personal data will immediately be deleted. Please note that in this case use of the registration will not be possible anymore.

4. Contact via the website

A contact form is available on our website which can be used for entering into contact electronically. Alternatively, contact can be established via the contact details provided in the legal statements. When you want to use the contact form, we collect and process the data entered by you.

Based on a legitimate interest (Article 6, section 1, letter f of the GDPR) or in case of requests for orders according to Article 6, section 1, letter b of the GDPR, to process your request, this data will be processed and stored.

Your data will not be forwarded to third parties unless this is required in a particular case due to your request. The deletion of the data is carried out after the realisation of your request (i.e. after a final clarification) or because of an objection made by you, so long as no legal retention periods conflict with a deletion.
