Data Protection Declaration

1) General regulations
With the exception of the data mentioned in point I), no data is collected on visitors to the webpages that could lead to conclusions about a natural person.
If personal data is to be collected on a webpage of TU Dresden (e.g. when registering for an event), informed, comprehensive and transparent consent is always requested in advance and in each individual case.
When accessing webpages in the internal area or those requiring a login, which are only accessible for members and associate members of TU Dresden, personal data is processed by TUD. This, however, is only carried out after receiving the explicit consent of the members of the closed user-group (members, associate members and guests of TU Dresden) and only for the purpose of authentication of the respective user.
If TU Dresden processes personal data in individual cases on its webpages, each affected party can, at any time, request information about the data processed that concerns them directly, as well as the possible recipients of this data to whom it was transmitted. Information must be provided by TU Dresden within one month of receiving a request.
We have taken all necessary and appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations within Technische Universität Dresden can be observed. If, however, you are concerned that your data protection rights have been infringed upon by TU Dresden, the Data Protection Officer of TU Dresden or the Saxon Data Protection Officer is available as the first point of contact for complaints.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet, particularly via email, is essentially unsecure. It is not guaranteed that transmitted data can be viewed or possibly even falsified by unauthorised persons.

Note: Contact via encrypted email (only for external sender): A sender with an email address ending in should use the encryption S/MIME Certificate German National Research and Education Network (DFN, Deutsches Forschungsnetz).
