Personal data

Personal data is information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific person that can be used to find out his or her identity. This includes, for example, name, address, postal address, e-mail address, but also the IP address or license plate number. Other information that cannot be directly linked to your person (e.g. version and brand of your browser, operating system of your computer) does not fall into this category.

In principle, you can use our website without disclosing your identity. However, if you wish to contact us, we will ask you for your name and other personal data in order to process your request.

Access to your personal data, which you provide to us, is possible in each case for the employees of the project, specifically Prof. Dr. Peter H. Seeberger and Dr. Matthew B. Plutschack, who are involved in the technical or content-related processing of these systems. All employees have been obligated to maintain confidentiality and to observe data protection. We take precautions to protect your data and to prevent misuse from the outside.

When you access our websites, we also store additional information (e.g. browser type, network, provider, date, time, pages viewed, jump address from other web servers, etc.) that may allow us to identify you personally. However, we do not make any personal use of this data. The data records are only evaluated statistically, to optimize our offer and to simplify the user guidance.
