Privacy Policy

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Thus, we always treat your personal data in accordance with the legal data protection regulations. In the following, we would like to inform you about the processing of personal data.

Data protection laws

As a public body, Bochum University of Applied Sciences and thus also the Weiterbildung AI offering are subject to the provisions of the North Rhine-Westphalia State Data Protection Act (DSG NRW) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). To protect your rights, we have taken technical and organizational measures and ensured that the regulations on data protection are also observed by external service providers who are involved in this offer. Bochum University of Applied Sciences only processes personal data if this data is necessary for the fulfillment of its tasks.

Collection and processing of personal data

You can use these web pages or the online offer without disclosing your identity. The site also does not use cookies. If you wish to contact us, you can do so by mail, telephone or e-mail. If you send us an e-mail, you must always be aware that the contents of the e-mail and its attachments may be read, falsified or deleted by unauthorized persons. To avoid this risk, you can alternatively send us a letter.


Each time the website is accessed, logs are created and processed for statistical purposes, whereby the individual user remains anonymous to us:

  • Referrer (page from whose link you arrived at this Internet presence)
  • Search terms (used by search engines as referrers)
  • IP is evaluated to determine the country of origin and the provider
  • Browser, operating system, installed plug-ins and screen resolution
  • Time spent on the pages

The aforementioned data is processed by us on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection establishment of the Internet presence,
  • Ensuring a comfortable use of our Internet presence,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability, and
  • for other administrative purposes.

We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use. The data will be deleted immediately if it is no longer required to achieve the purpose, but at the latest after six months.

Passing on the data

A transfer to third parties, for commercial or non-commercial purposes, will not take place without your express consent in principle. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if this is legally permissible and required. In some cases, we use service providers for the legally required commissioned processing of data; for example, the website is hosted by Hetzner.

Liability for own contents

The contents of these pages were created with the utmost care. However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content. Of course, we are responsible for our own content on these pages under the general laws.

Liability for links (contents of external providers)

A distinction must be made between our own content and cross-references (“links”) to content provided by other providers. We have no influence on their content; the respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages.

Rights of the data subjects

We hereby inform you that pursuant to Article 15 et seq. DSGVO, you have the right to obtain information about the personal data in question, as well as the right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or the right to object to processing, as well as the right to data portability, subject to the conditions defined therein. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 of the GDPR if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you violates this Regulation. If the processing is based on Article 6(1)(a) DSGVO or Article 9(2)(a) DSGVO (consent), you also have the right to withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until withdrawal.

Change to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adjust this privacy policy occasionally so that it always complies with the current legal requirements. The new privacy policy will then apply to your next visit.
