Privacy policy


This web site uses Piwik, an open-source software for statistical analyses of user accesses. The university's installation of Piwik is configured to conform to the guidelines of the Zentrale Datenschutzstelle der baden-württembergischen Universitäten (ZENDAS).

The data Piwik collects is never sent to other servers or to third parties; it is used in anonymised form to improve our services. IP addresses are stored in Piwik without the final tuple.  We know the network the query came from, not the specific computer.

You can deactivate data recording by Piwik here. If your browser supports “do-not-track” technology and you have turned it on, your visit will be automatically ignored.

By using this web site, you agree that the data Piwik collects about you may be processed in the manner previously described and for the purpose previously stated.


Every time a user accesses the University of Heidelberg's website, it is recorded in a protocol file. The data in this protocol file are not connected to individual persons. This means that we are not able to track the sites users' access or what files they retrieve.

The following data are saved in the protocol file:

  • the name of the file retrieved
  • the data and time of retrieval
  • the IP address

For statistical purposes, website access is evaluated, without eliciting information on the computer (computer identification of the IP address) used to access the University of Heidelberg's website. The evaluation is restricted to the network (subdomain) of the computer used for access. The data used for evaluation are deleted from the protocol data after a period of no more than two months.

Protocol data are not made available to third parties.
