Privacy Policy.

This privacy policy applies to the websites:

And as a supplement insofar as we process personal data on our own responsibility for:

We currently assume that we are not subject to any co-responsibility in terms of data protection law insofar as your data is processed by these providers for purposes specified by them.

General information

Data protection is our concern and our legal obligation. In order to protect the security of your data adequately during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL/TLS) and secure technical systems.
Javascript is used as the active component for the web pages. If you have turned off this function in your browser, you will receive a corresponding message to activate the function.

Google Custom Search


Within our website the "Google Custom Search Engine" "Google CSE" is used as a central search service. The integrated search service enables a full-text search for contents of the website's internet offer. Access to this search function is possible via a search box integrated in the header of the individual web pages.


The search function on these web pages ("search box") is provided and maintained by Google LLC ("Google") and is added to our web pages by us as a software module unchanged. By entering a search term in the search box and pressing the enter key, the user agrees to the transmission of the IP address and the search term to Google. This calls up the search results page, which uses a plugin provided by Google to load the relevant search results from Google. The plugin enables automated communication between the visited search results page and the Google service when the search results page is visited.

Legal basis

Legal basis for the transmission of your personal data to Google is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO. Consent is given voluntarily.

Storage period of your consent

6 months


You can revoke your consent at any time and without giving reasons. Revocation of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place up to that point. You can revoke your consent by deleting or resetting our "searchstate" cookie in your browser settings or by clicking this Link.

Notes on data processing

Use of the search function provided by Google includes dynamic transfer of data by the service provider Google to the search results page. Data are only transmitted to Google after the user has activated the search box, started a full text search and called up the search results page. By using the search function within the search results page, user data is also transferred to Google. With the use of the full text search and the associated call up of the search results page, the search terms entered by you and the IP address of the computer you are using are transmitted to Google. If you are logged in at Google at the same time, the Google service is available in the ability to assign the information directly to your user profile. You should log out to avoid collecting profile information about you. More information from Google about how we treat user information (data protection declaration) can be obtained at

Zweck und Rechtsgrundlage der Datenverarbeitung (Art. 13 Abs. 1 lit c DSGVO)

Wir nutzen die erhobenen persönlichen Daten, um Ihre Studienplatzbewerbung im Rahmen der gesetzlichen Vorgaben zu bearbeiten und um im Fall einer erfolgreichen Studienplatzbewerbung Ihre Immatrikulation vorzubereiten.

Außerdem nutzen wir die Daten zur anonymisierten Verfolgung von Studienverläufen.

Wenn Sie nach Ihrem Studium mit uns als Alumni in Kontakt bleiben wollen, ist eine separate Erklärung / Anmeldung erforderlich: Nur dann nutzen wir die Daten für passgenaue Alumniangebote an Sie.

Außerdem nutzen wir die erhobenen Daten um Systemzugänge (Netzwerk, Online-Portale, Lernplattformen, Bibliotheksnutzung, Raumnutzungen) zu organisieren.

Im Bewerbungsverfahren nutzen wir Ihre persönlichen Daten ausschließlich für den Kontakt mit Ihnen und die Abwicklung des Bewerbungsverfahrens; das umfasst auch die Einladung zu einschlägigen Infoveranstaltungen.

In der Studierenden- und Prüfungsverwaltung werden die Daten für den Kontakt mit Ihnen, für das Antragsmanagement (Beurlaubungen, Fristen, Anrechnungen etc.) sowie für die Praktikums-, Gebühren- und Prüfungsverwaltung im Rahmen der rechtlichen Vorgaben genutzt. In der Studienorganisation nutzen wir die Daten für Fächereinschreibungen, Stundenplanung etc. Im Rahmen der Stipendienangelegenheiten erfassen wir Ihre über die Hochschule abzuwickelnden Stipendienanträge (z.B. Deutschlandstipendium) und nutzen die vorhandenen Daten für die zielgerichtete Information über Stipendienprogramme, die Talentförderung und die Vergabe von Preisen an Studierende und Absolventen. In einigen externen Förderprogrammen haben die Hochschulen das Recht geeignete Studierende vorzuschlagen: Wir ermitteln in PRIMUSS die Studierenden, die die Kriterien der Förderprogramme am besten erfüllen; ein Vorschlag, in dem Ihre persönlichen Daten an externe Stipendiengeber übermittelt werden, erfolgt nur mit Ihrer Einwilligung.

Mit Ihren persönlichen Daten unterstützen wir auch Ihre Bewerbung um Plätze an ausländischen Partnerhochschulen: Eine solche Bewerbung wird im Mobility-Online-System der THD erfasst und abgewickelt. Aus PRIMUSS werden aktuelle arithmetische Prüfungsnotenschnitte für die Vergabe nach Ranglisten geliefert, sofern mehr Bewerbungen vorliegen als Plätze vorhanden sind. Bei Erstsemestern, die sich bewerben, wird mangels Prüfungsnoten die Durchschnittsnote der Hochschulzugangsberechtigung übermittelt.

Als Bewerber und wenn Sie bei uns immatrikuliert sind, erhalten Sie von uns jeweils passwortgeschützte Systemzugänge für die digitale Erledigung Ihrer Bewerbung und Ihrer Anträge und Verfahren in den PRIMUSS-Portalen für Bewerber und Studierende: Wir protokollieren Ihre Zugriffe und Aktivitäten, um jederzeit die Rechtmäßigkeit der Zugriffe nachvollziehen und die Aktivitäten nachweisen zu können. Darüber hinaus erfolgt keine Nutzung der Protokolldaten.

Purpose and legal basis of the data processing (Art. 13 para. 1 lit c DSGVO)

We use the personal data collected to process your application for a place of study in accordance with the legal requirements and to prepare your matriculation in the event of a successful application for a place of study. If you enrol at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT), your personal data will subsequently be used for student and examination administration, to support the processing of your international affairs such as semesters abroad, for study organisation, scholarship matters and as a basis for talent promotion. In addition, we use the data for the anonymous tracking of study courses.

If you wish to remain in contact with us as alumni after your studies, a separate declaration / registration is required: Only then will we use the data for tailor-made alumni offers to you.

We also use the collected data to organise system access (network, online portals, learning platforms, library use, room usage).

In the application process we use your personal data exclusively for the contact with you and the handling of the application process; this also includes invitations to relevant information events.

In the student and examination administration, the data is used for contact with you, for application management (leave of absence, deadlines, credits etc.) as well as for internship, fee and examination administration within the framework of legal requirements. In the field of study organisation, we use the data for subject enrolment, timetable planning, etc. In the context of scholarship matters, we record your scholarship applications (e.g. German scholarships) to be processed via the university and use the available data for targeted information on scholarship programmes, talent promotion and the awarding of prizes to students and graduates. In some external scholarship programmes, the universities have the right to propose suitable students: In PRIMUSS, we identify the students who best meet the criteria of the scholarship programmes; a proposal in which your personal data is transferred to external scholarship providers is only made with your consent.

With your personal data we also support your application for places at foreign partner universities: Such an application is recorded and processed in the Mobility-Online-System of DIT. Current arithmetical examination grades are provided from PRIMUSS for the awarding of rankings, provided that there are more applications than places available. In the case of first-semester applicants, the average grade of the higher education entrance qualification will be transmitted due to a lack of examination grades.

As an applicant and if you are registered with us, you will receive password-protected system access from us for the digital processing of your application and your applications and procedures in the PRIMUSS portals for applicants and students: We log your accesses and activities in order to be able to trace the legality of the accesses and to prove the activities at any time. Beyond that no use of the protocol data takes place.

The legal basis for data collection is Art. 6 para. 1 lit c in conjunction with Art. 3 lit b DSGVO. Paragraph 3 lit. b DSGVO, Art. 42 Bavarian Higher Education Act (BayHSchG), the Bavarian Higher Education Admission Act (BayHZG) and the enrolment, re-registration and de-registration statutes of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology of 01 October 2013, as well as the Higher Education Statistics Act (HStatG).

Recipients or categories of recipients of personal data (Art. 13 para. 1 lit e DSGVO)

DIT will only pass on your data on the basis of legal authorisations or with your consent: No other data will be passed on.

In the case of study programmes that participate in the nationwide admission comparison, the so-called dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV), your application data will be transmitted to the Foundation for Admission to Universities responsible for the DoSV (see for the nationwide application and admission comparison and will be compared with the data stored there (legal basis § 37 a Bayerische Hochschulzulassungsverordnung - BayHZV).

As part of the admission process and the course of study, your data will be compared with your health insurance fund (legal basis: Student Health Insurance Reporting Ordinance, SKV-MV of 27 March 1996 in its current version) and, if necessary, data will be transferred to the Studentenwerk Niederbayern/Oberpfalz in connection with BAföG applications submitted by you there (legal basis: §§ 47 / 48 Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz - BAföG).

In study programmes that we offer jointly with other universities or jointly award degrees, we transmit your personal data relevant to the degree to the partner universities. In the same way, these universities are obliged to comply with data protection regulations.

In study courses financed by fees, we partly work together with service providers who take on various tasks for us in the organisation and handling of the study courses. For this purpose, DIT will provide these service providers with the personal data collected from you and necessary for the service. It goes without saying that the service providers are obliged to observe data protection to the same extent as DIT.

In many scholarship programmes, the university has the right to propose possible candidates among the students: Your contact and performance data will only be passed on with your consent. A data transfer even without your knowledge is permitted on the basis of § 27 BayDSG for the preparation and execution of state or municipal awards or honours.

DIT operates PRIMUSS as examination, matriculation and student administration software in conjunction with nine other universities. The systems, including the online portals, are centrally hosted in the Regional Computer Centre Erlangen-Nuremberg and administered by the PRIMUSS network. The competence centre of the PRIMUSS network is responsible for the administration: The PRIMUSS competence team of Coburg University of Applied Sciences is responsible for the central administration and second-level support of the online services, while that of Deggendorf Institute of Technology is responsible for second-level support of the specialist applications. The responsible data protection officer is responsible for all data protection inquiries. You can reach them at You reach the group under
