Privacy Statement

With the exception of the data mentioned below, no data is collected about visitors to our web pages that allows conclusions to be drawn about a natural person.

If personal data is collected on the Leipzig University website (e.g. when registering for events), we request your consent in advance.

If, in individual cases, Leipzig University processes personal data, every data subject may at any time request information about the data processed about him or her as well as about the possible recipients of this data to whom it has been transferred. Leipzig University must provide this information within one month of receiving the request for information.

We have taken all necessary and appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that it is possible to comply with data protection regulations within Leipzig University. If, however, you believe that Leipzig University has violated your right to protection of your personal data, then you may file a complaint with the University’s Data Protection Officer or the Saxon Commissioner for Data Protection.

Please note that data transfer over the internet, in particular by email, is essentially unsecured. It cannot be ruled out that transferred data may be read by unauthorised persons and possibly even falsified.

Notes on the basic data protection regulation

Due to the Data Protection Ordinance coming into force on 25.05.2018, we inform you that we collect your name, your business address and for the purpose of communication for BCF matters, an e-mail address and telephone number when using equipment of the BioImaging Core Facility. For the billing of fees, we also record the name of the person responsible for billing (head of working group, institute director) and the name of the facility. Your data will be used exclusively by the coordinating office of the BCF. It will not be handed over to third parties. You can disagree to the use of your e-mail address at any time. The collection of data is voluntary, but is a prerequisite for registration with BCF and therefore a prerequisite for the use of BCF equipment. Any refusal to the use of your e-mail address and telephone number for BCF's purposes will therefore result in the termination of your registration with BCF and the use of BCF's equipment. The legal basis for the collection of the aforementioned data is Art. 6 para. 1 a DSGVO. All other information resulting from the information obligations of the University of Leipzig can be found in the University of Leipzig's data protection declaration:
