Piwik uses cookies, i.e. small text files which are stored on your computer and enable you to analyse your internet use. These session cookies are stored on your computer only temporarily; as soon as the web browser is closed, these cookies are deleted. The information gathered by the cookie about your use of our internet services is stored on a server of Leibniz Universität Hannover and analysed exclusively in-house. Data which has been acquired is not passed on to third parties and serves to identify and improve relevant content of our internet services.

Your IP address is made anonymous immediately after processing and before storing it. Piwik has been configured according to the recommendations of the Independent Regional Centre for Data Protection Schleswig-Holstein (ULD) and complies with current data protection regulations.

By using these internet services you declare that you agree to the processing of data collected about you as described above and solely for the above-mentioned purpose.

Opting Out of Data Collection by Piwik

Technical Information on Opting Out

Deactivating the web analysis means that a permanent cookie is stored on your computer, if your browser allows this. This cookie serves to instruct the analysis software not to gather data from your browser.

Please note that for technical reasons the different websites of institutions at Leibniz Universität (recognisable by the different headers) each require an individual opting out of data collection using Piwik.

Entering Data Into Forms on Leibniz Universität Websites

Where internet services allow for the entry of personal or business data (E-mail addresses, names, addresses), disclosing this data is on an expressly voluntary basis on the part of the user. Using and paying for all services offered is - as far as this is technically possible and reasonable - granted also without disclosure of such data or through the use of anonymised data or a pseudonym. The use by third parties of contact data published in the imprint or similar, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses, for transmitting not specifically requested information is not allowed. We expressly reserve the right to take legal steps against the senders of so-called spam mails which violate this prohibition.
