The use of our website is normally possible without the user needing to provide personal data. If personal data is collected on the websites, this is done so on a voluntary basis.

When accessing the website www.htw-dresden.de, data is temporarily stored on our servers for the purposes of data backup. These may include: · 

  • The name of the file retrieved
  • The date and time of retrieval
  • A notification as to whether the retrieval was successful

These data are automatically deleted after 14 days.

We would like to point out that any data transmission, in particular via e-mail or via the Internet is essentially unsecured at present. Access to (or the falsification of) the transmitted data by unauthorised persons can therefore not be ruled out.


For your benefit, you have the right to information from us on the personal data relating to your person as well as the right to correction or deletion, or to the restriction of processing, or the right to object to the processing, as well as the right to data portability and a right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. If data processing is based on your consent, you are entitled to revoke this consent at any time without prejudice to the legality of the consent-based processing carried out until the point of the revocation. For all matters of data protection, you can also contact our data protection officer at datenschutz@htw-dresden.de, for example.



Special features for the integration of social networks (Facebook, Xing, YouTube, Instagram)

We have not integrated social networks via plugins, in order to ensure the data protection-friendly design of our website. When using plugins, a connection to the operator of the corresponding social network is created when a person visits the website (and not just when using the plugin itself). From there, data is then collected and processed. The operators of social networks do not provide information on the scope and method of data collection and processing.

The solution we apply is therefore not to connect to the social network operator until you have used the appropriate buttons. Please note that, by using the appropriate buttons, the operators of the respective social network may collect and process data, without the nature and extent of such collection and processing operations being known to us, or without any influence on our part. For more information, please consult the privacy policies of the respective social network in use.

Use of contact and booking forms

If you would like to contact us via the contact forms, you will need to provide further details. These are the data required for the respective transaction. These are marked with a *. Further information can be provided voluntarily.

The collection, storage and use of your data is solely for the purpose of providing the service you want.

Analysis / Statistical software Piwik

In order to optimise and adapt our websites to the wishes of users, the HTW Dresden uses the web analytics programme Piwik. HTW uses this open-source programme to compile statistics on the use of its websites.  The adaptation of this tool ensures that only the address and the title of the page accessed, the country of origin, the browser used and the time of retrieval are stored. The IP address is immediately anonymized when the pages are retrieved (the last two blocks of the IP address are not saved), so that we can not draw any conclusions about the users.

Piwik uses cookies, small text files which are stored temporarily on your computer for the purpose of analysing the websites. By adjusting the settings in your browser, you can prevent the storage of cookies. If you have activated the "Do-Not-Track" setting in your browser, your visit to the HTW Dresden website will not be analysed. The data collected by Piwik is stored on servers of the HTW Dresden and is not forwarded to third parties.


You can decide here whether a clearly identifiable web analytics cookie may be stored in your browser, in order to allow the operator of the website to collect and analyse various statistical data.
