  • address data;
  • contact details;
  • main occupation including social security certificate;
  • data regarding education and training; and
  • contract and bank details.

In addition, we might process the following data categories:

  • Information provided by you during your application
    e.g. CVs
  • Data generated as part of course unit organisation and student evaluation
    e.g. invoicing data, staff data according to the FH-BIS Regulation*, course unit data, evaluation results
  • Data generated during the University of Applied Sciences Board elections
    e.g. from the electoral roll and proposals for appointments, election results

    e.g. user master data, printer data, log files
  • Data generated when using the locking system in the Rosenhof building
    e.g. name, company affiliation, opening authorisations, recording of opening and locking behaviour
  • Data processed in the course of the time recording app
    in particular first name, last name, start times of the student time recording (as proof of the completion of teaching obligations), log data, e-mail address, course dates

We process and transfer this data to enable smooth running of our degree programmes, to settle invoices, to ensure access control to protect the property of CAMPUS 02, to fulfil our obligations regarding record-keeping, information provisioning, reporting and notification, and to carry out quality management tasks. A proportion of your data is also processed for IT system administration and security. This also includes data generated during the creation and archiving of texts and correspondence.

These procedures are the prerequisite for managing your teaching contract correctly and for fulfilling our legal and contractual obligations and occur on basis of legitimate interest of CAMPUS 02. If we cannot process your data, employment at CAMPUS 02 is unfortunately not possible.

In order to ensure up-to-date and functioning teaching activities, online courses and online examinations are offered via Microsoft “Teams”. CAMPUS 02 has the contractual obligation to ensure a proper running of the degree programmes as well as a duty to mitigation. With this offer CAMPUS 02 fulfils these obligations, as possible delays in study duration due to the corona pandemic can be counteracted.

With your voluntary consent, we will show your photo and CAMPUS 02 e-mail address on our website according to Art. 6 para. 1 cl. a of the GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time.

* Regulation governing the provision of information on UAS degree programmes (Verordnung zur Fachhochschul-Bereitstellung von Informationen über den Studienbetrieb)


Upon expiry of your teaching contract, your personal data will be deleted step-by-step according to the valid legal retention obligations.

All data required to prove that a student has graduated (e.g. course unit data) is stored for 80 years, starting from the end of the academic year in which the study contract of the student expires, in accordance with Art. 13 para. 8 of the University of Applied Sciences Studies Act (Fachhochschulgesetz, FHG).

The data processed in the course of the student evaluation are stored for 7 years in accordance with the certification period of the QM system pursuant to § 22 (4) of the Higher Education Quality Assurance Act (HS-QSG).

The data processed within the framework of the time recording app will be deleted at the end of the following semester.

All data (log files) collected in connection with the locking system are stored for a period of one month. After this period they will be irrevocably deleted.

All other data that has been processed is usually deleted after 10 years.

The retention period may be extended in all cases where judicial or administrative proceedings are pending in which CAMPUS 02 has party status and in which this data is at issue.

It is possible to request that data be anonymised instead of deleted. In this case, any references to persons will be irreversibly removed. Consequently, erasure obligations arising from data protection laws will no longer apply.

Your personal data is treated as confidential and is generally processed only by CAMPUS 02 staff members internally.

However, data processors who have been commissioned by us can also process data for the purposes mentioned if they can ensure adequate data security. For example, in cases where support is required, external IT service providers can see and process the above-mentioned data categories.

The data relevant to each particular case is also transferred to the following recipients in accordance with the laws and regulations and contractual agreements:

  • Tax consultants (payroll accounting)

In addition, due to legal and contractual provisions, some relevant data of part-time lecturers is transferred to:

  • the academic year representatives participating in evaluation feedback meetings.

We use Microsoft Office 365 as the cloud service for our e-mail correspondence as well as for the provision of on-line classes and online examinations. Hosting is mainly provided within the European Union in accordance with European data protection laws. Some services and technical support can also be provided from outside of the EU. A decision known as the Adequacy Decision, made by the European Commission, permits data transfers to the US (EU-US Privacy Shield). Based on this decision, some profile data (names, password, PUID number) is also saved in the US.

Data transfers to providers in the US are permitted under Art 49 (1) lit d GDPR for reasons of substantial public interest. In order to safeguard the public interest of scientifically based education, it is necessary for CAMPUS 02 to use Microsoft’s Cloud Service for its study and teaching activities.
