With the exception of those listed in sections 2-5, no data is collected about visitors to the pages which may allow conclusions to be drawn about a natural person.

If personal data is collected within this website (e.g. registrations), an informed, comprehensive and transparent consent is always requested in advance and in each individual case.

We have taken all necessary and appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations within the Chair of Multimedia Technology can be observed.

In addition, the data protection officer of the TU Dresden or the Saxon data protection officer serve as a complaints office.

We would like to point out that data transmission, in particular by e-mail, via the Internet is currently essentially unsecured. It is possible that transmitted data can be intercepted and possibly even manipulated by unauthorized parties.

2 Actively transmitted data

When accessing the pages in the internal area and all other contents protected by login, personal data (e-mail address, user name, password) are processed by the Chair of Multimedia Technology or the Technical University of Dresden.
