Advice for using social networks

The Munich University of Applied Sciences (MUAS) values the opportunities for communication offered by social media. MUAS is aware, however, that simply clicking on links to these social media sites can lead to your personal data being passed on, regardless of whether or not you are a member of the social network.

Data protection, web tracking, security

All content on the central websites of Munich University of Applied Science is exclusively hosted, maintained and provided on internal servers.
Any access to Munich University’s websites is logged and stored in a file. No personal data is stored, with the exception of the IP address. After a maximum of 7 days, only the first two bytes of the IP address will be stored.


  • Name of file accessed
  • Date and time of access
  • Notification of whether or not the access was successful
  • IP address


This stored data is used exclusively to avert danger (in case of attacks) as well as to improve the internet offer. It is not passed on to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.


No data is traced back to individual persons as part of the usage statistics.


Cookies

On the centrally hosted websites of Munich University of Applied Sciences (central website, faculties, departments) so-called cookies are used in order to compile access statistics, for example. Cookies are small text files stored on the website visitor’s computer by their browser. By amending the respective browser settings, storage of cookies can be deactivated and cookies that have already been stored can be deleted.


JavaScript

Some functionalities require JavaScript, such as target group navigation (“I am a student / prospective student”), automatic switch to website view for mobile phones or some search functionalities.


In order to use these functionalities JavaScript needs to be activated in the browser.


The relevant pure information is usually also accessible on the websites without JavaScript.


Usage statistics

To analyse the centrally hosted websites, the statistics software PIWIK is used (www.piwik.org ), which is operated on internal servers by Munich University of Applied Sciences. PIWIK uses cookies for the purpose of usage analysis. Every visitor can deactivate the statistical recording of their visit (by activating the “do not track” setting in their browser or by explicitly deactivating tracking via the link “data privacy protection and web tracking ” in the left navigation column on the website).


These analyses enable the compilation of usage statistics allowing Munich University of Applied Sciences to continuously improve the information provided.


Within this context, usage information including the accessing computer’s IP address, which is shortened for reasons of data protection, is transmitted and stored for analysis purposes. By shortening the IP address, the user of the website remains anonymous. Merely a “session ID” (cookie) is taken and stored as a shared key of a website visit. A session ends when the browser is closed.


Information regarding website access used for usage analyses continues to be date, time, place (city), browser type, browser capabilities and language, operating system / type of device, length of visit, visits per server and local time, visited sites, usage history, search machines and keywords used to access the university’s sites, URL referencing the university’s sites


However, every user can deactivate statistical recording of their visit through PIWIK (by activating the “do not track” setting in their browser or by explicitly deactivating tracking via the link “data protection, web tracking” in the left navigation column on the website “opt out”).


By deactivating tracking a so-called opt-out cookie is generated in the browser, which ensures PIWIK no longer records usage data for this website visit. Note: Should this opt-out cookie be deleted by the user in their browser settings, compilation of statistical data through PIWIK is reactivated.


Statistical data generated by the website visit will be used exclusively by Munich University of Applied Sciences to improve its online presence and to ensure the best possible use of resources.
