The HAWK's data protection declaration implements the information obligations of the Basic Data Protection Ordinance under Art. 13 DSGVO. The HAWK thus informs you as a user of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data.
As a matter of principle, we only process your personal data insofar as this is necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our contents and services. Your personal data will only be processed regularly with your consent. Exceptions apply in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.
Our website uses Matomo - formerly Piwik - a so-called web analysis service. Matomo creates a so-called cookie (see above) which transfers usage information exclusively to our own server in Germany.
Among other things, access numbers, search terms, page views, dwell times and user settings such as browser, plug-ins and resolution are collected. Only the first two octets of the user's IP address are stored, so that the data collected cannot be traced back to individual persons.
The stored data is used exclusively for the technical and editorial optimisation of the HAWK website. The information stored in the cookie is not passed on to third parties under any circumstances.
If you do not want this anonymous data to be collected from you, it is sufficient if you object to so-called "tracking" with a mouse click.
The person responsible within the meaning of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and other national data protection laws of the EU member states as well as other data protection provisions is the Data Protection Officer:
HAWK University of Applied Sciences Hildesheim Holzminden Göttingen
represented by the President, Dr. Marc Hudy
Hohnsen 4, 31134 Hildesheim, Germany

Some cookies are "session cookies". Such cookies are deleted automatically at the end of your browser session. On the other hand, other cookies remain on your terminal until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognize you when you return to our website.
For technical reasons, we automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Browser type/ browser version
used operating system
Hostname of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
Your Internet Protocol (IP) address
These data are not merged with other data sources. The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
On our website we offer you the possibility to contact us by e-mail and/or via a contact form.
Data transmitted via the contact form will be stored including your contact data in order to process your enquiry or to be available for follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).
Our website uses plugins from YouTube to integrate and display video content. The provider of the video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When a page with an integrated YouTube plugin is opened, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This will tell YouTube which of our pages you have accessed.
YouTube can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile if you are logged into your YouTube account. You can prevent this by logging out beforehand.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Details on the handling of user data can be found in YouTube's data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
On our pages are plugins of the social network Facebook, (provider Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA,) integrated.
You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the "Like" button on our page.
You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins on developers.facebook.com.
When you visit our pages, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook "Like" button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate visiting our pages with your user account.
If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign visits to our pages to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
This offer uses website elements (https://dev.twitter.com/web/overview), such as buttons or embedded content of the Twitter service, offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. With the help of the website elements it is possible, for example, to share a contribution or page of this offer on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter. As additional content, individual tweets can be integrated into the website.
As a user, you have the right to request free information about which personal data about you has been stored. You also have the right to correct incorrect data and to limit or delete the processing of your personal data. If applicable, you may also exercise your right to data transfer.
Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have a right to delete your data. Data stored by us will be deleted if they are no longer needed for their intended purpose and there are no legal retention periods. If deletion cannot be carried out because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.
Users of this website may exercise their right of objection and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
If you wish to have your personal data corrected, blocked, deleted or informed, or if you have questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you wish to revoke your consent, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
In the event of a breach of data protection law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues for the HAWK is the State Commissioner for Data Protection of Lower Saxony. If you believe that your data has been processed unlawfully, you can file a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority:
