An informal notification by e-mail to elearning@eks-intec.de. is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

It is provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.

5. right to information, correction, blocking, deletion You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, its recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions. In this regard and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time via the above-mentioned contact data. You can delete your user account in the EKS InTec HUB yourself at any time. Deletion also deletes all your personal data. At all places where your user name or your first and last name was previously displayed (e.g. for forum posts or comments), the message "User deleted" or "anonymous" appears after deleting your account. The content that you have created alone or together with others on ilias.de is not deleted (see also point 9).

Follow the instructions to irrevocably delete your account.

6. cookies
The LMS ILIAS used on elearning.eks-solutions.de uses cookies. These are small files that are stored on your device via the browser. They enable ILIAS to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. Cookies also store a user's preferred settings, such as the number of entries displayed on a table page. And cookies serve the security of the user and the operator, since ILIAS can use the cookie to check whether a page in ILIAS is actually accessed by the person authorized to do so.
ILIAS uses both temporary cookies that become invalid after the end of the session or when the browser is closed, and cookies that are stored for a longer period of time. Via the settings of your browser you can see which cookies have been set by ilias.de and delete them if necessary. However, the use of ILIAS without cookies is not possible for technical reasons.

7. use of the website and registration The use of the EKS InTec HUB is possible with and without registration. The use of ILIAS without registration takes place as a so-called anonymous user. No personal data is collected from you. However, without registration and login you can only access and read appropriately approved pages in the EKS InTec HUB. For joining user groups, writing forum posts, comments or internal mails, as well as for numerous other functions, however, a user account and thus registration is required. After successful registration you can log in to ilias.de with the user name and password of your choice and use the functions provided.

8. registration details and personal profile When registering at elearning.eks-solutions.de, the following personal data must be entered:
  • First and last name
  • E-mail address
These entries are necessary to identify you as a user in the system. In addition, you can voluntarily enter further personal data, e.g. to inform yourself in your personal profile. You can change and remove this voluntary information at any time on the "Personal data and profile" page. You can reach this page from your avatar at the top right. On this page in the "Profile" tab you also determine whether and with what information your "Personal Profile" is displayed to other users on ilias.de. If your personal profile is not activated, ILIAS shows only your user name for posts you create (e.g. comments, forum posts, blog posts or entries in wiki pages). If your profile is activated, however, your first and last name will be displayed and usually presented as a link to your shared personal profile.

9. User generated content At various places in the EKS InTec HUB you have the possibility to create content yourself. These can be posts in discussion forums, comments on existing content or entries in wiki pages, for example. This content is retained even after you delete your user account. Personal data, such as your name or your e-mail, which you yourself insert as content in such posts, will not be removed after deleting your user account. Therefore, use the entry of such data sparingly.

10. access to personal data Only the system administrators of the installation have unlimited access to your personal data in the EKS InTec HUB. In addition, personal information may be viewed by the administrators of the courses and groups you are a member of, whether you have joined them yourself or have been entered into them by third parties. You can find an overview of all courses and groups you are a member of on your personal desk on the page "My courses and groups". There you can also terminate the course or group membership via the Actions menu if you no longer wish to become a member.

11. duration for which the personal data is stored Personal data is stored for as long as the user account of the respective user exists in the EKS InTec HUB. The data will be deleted as soon as the user account itself is deleted - either at the personal request of the user or automatically due to inactivity (see the corresponding regulation in the user agreement above).

12th server log files Every time the EKS InTec HUB is accessed, the web server collects and stores information in the server log files. Your browser automatically transmits these to our server. These are:
  • browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • hostname of the accessing computer

EKS InTec GmbH does not merge this data with other data sources. 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.

13. SSL encryption For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as a site operator, our site uses SSL encryption. This means that data that you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https://" address line of your browser and the lock symbol in the browser line.
