In contrast to the cookie technology, the information will not be stored permanently and will be deleted automatically as soon as the browser window is closed. This information will no longer be available during browser sessions at a later date. It is therefore not possible to monitor user access behaviour. Moreover, this technology protects the user’s identity. It is possible to use the web pages without this technology at any time.
The following information is stored in our weblog when you visit any of the web pages of Universität Regensburg:
A weblog entry could for instance look like that:
123.456.97.36 - - [05/Apr/2010:00:00:01 +0200] "GET /images/home/siegelaktuell.gif HTTP/1.1" 200 2057 "http://www.uni-regensburg.de/" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; InfoPath.2)"
Any stored information will only be used for technical or statistical purposes, for instance in order to resolve technical issues and to improve the performance of the web servers.
Any analysis will be carried out completely anonymously; the information is not used to identify users nor will it be compared with any other information.
The information is stored for two months and then deleted unless an identified web attack results in a civil action or the criminal prosecution against the attacker.
Please note that further information can be collected and stored in forms or in web applications that are hosted on one of the domains of Universität Regensburg (uni-regensburg.de, uni-r.de, ur.de). Due to the large number and great variety of the forms and web applications it is not possible to give any general information on the collection and storage or deletion periods. However, you will find this information on the separate private policies on the respective forms or web applications.
