The University of Basel (Unibas) attaches great importance to the protection of personal data. Personal data is any data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, photo, user behaviour, IP address, etc.
The purpose of this privacy statement is to inform you of the data that IT Services collects from you as a user of the its.unibas.ch website, the purposes for which this data is processed and disclosed, and the measures that Unibas takes to ensure the security of this data. In addition, we inform you of the rights to which you are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.
Personal data is always processed in compliance with the Information and Data Protection Act of the Canton of Basel-Stadt (IDG) applicable to the University of Basel and, if applicable, the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DSG). In addition, the University of Basel complies with the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which may be applicable, and states the relevant legal basis for this case in each case, in accordance with Art. 13 Para. 1 lit c DSGVO.
Apart from access data, no personal data is collected.
For security reasons, e.g. in order to be able to clarify cases of abuse and to secure our network infrastructure, so-called access data, which are automatically collected when the website its.unibas.ch is accessed, are stored in a web server log file on servers of the University of Basel for a period of 4 months. In the event of an attack on our network infrastructure, longer-term storage may be necessary for reasons of evidence and for possible civil or criminal prosecution of the attacker.
The following access data is collected:
- Visited website
- Time at the time of access
- browser used
- operating system used
- IP address
No web analysis tools are used.
In order to display an interactive map and to create directions, we integrate the maps of the "OpenStreetMap" service(https://www.openstreetmap.de), which are offered by the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF) on the basis of the Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL).
To our knowledge, the data of the users are used by OpenStreetMap exclusively for the purpose of displaying the map functions and temporarily storing the selected settings. This data may include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of users, which, however, are not collected without their consent (usually executed in the context of the settings of their mobile devices).
The University of Basel implements technical and organisational security measures to ensure that the data it collects and further processes via the its.unibas.ch website,
- remain confidential and are protected from accidental or unlawful access, alteration or disclosure, and from loss or destruction; and
- access to the data is granted exclusively on a need-to-know basis to those persons who need to access the personal data by virtue of their function and duties.
The measures to be taken depend on the type of information, the nature and purpose of its use and the respective state of the art.
No social media plugins are integrated.
