Subject of data privacy
Data privacy addresses issues concerning personal data. According to Article 4 no. 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), these are data referring to an identified or identifiable individual, in other words all data which could be used to identify you. This applies to data such as your name, private address, email address, and telephone number but also to usage data such as your IP address.
As a matter of course Technische Universität Berlin observes the legal requirements of data privacy and other applicable regulations.
We are committed to ensuring that you can trust us concerning your personal data. For this reason transfers of personal or sensitive data are encrypted. In addition, our websites are protected by technical measures against damage or unauthorized access.
