The Bundeswehr University Munich would like to inform the users that complete data security in e-mail communication is strived for but cannot be entirely guaranteed. For transfer of confidential information via e-mail please ask the addressee in advance for data encryption options or use postal services.

We use spam filters against unsolicited advertising. However, in rare cases, normal e-mails may be automatically classified wrongly as unsolicited advertising or their acceptance may be refused. E-mails containing malware (viruses etc.) will be deleted automatically in any case.


Links

Many of our contents contain links to other publishers’ websites. This is just to allow access to and use of these websites. However, we have no influence on whether the publishers comply with the data protection regulations or not. The respective publishers are thus solely responsible for their internet presence.


Using Social Plugins

It is possible to embed Facebook social plugins on our website. When you visit a page on our website which contains this plugin, a connection is made to the Facebook webservers. Then a message is sent to your web browser to display the plugin on the webpage.

The information that you have visited the respective webpage on our internet presence is thus transmitted to the Facebook server.

If you have a Facebook account and are logged in, Facebook will allocate the information on the visit of our webpages and, if necessary, further information (such as interaction with the plugin) to your personal user account on this platform. You can circumvent this by logging off from the respective user account prior to visiting the corresponding webpage and/or using the plugin.

Facebook social plugins are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The Data Protection Declaration can be found here.


Using YouTube Plugins (Videos)

It is possible to embed YouTube plugins on our website. When you visit a page on our website which contains a YouTube plugin, a connection is made to the YouTube webservers. Then a message is sent to your browser to display the plugin on the webpage.

Information which of our webpages you have visited is thus transmitted to the YouTube server.

If you have a YouTube account and are logged in, YouTube will allocate the information on the visit of our webpages and, if necessary, further information (such as starting the video) to your personal user account on this platform. You can circumvent this by logging off from the respective user account prior to visiting the corresponding webpage and/or using the plugin.

YouTube plugins are operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The Data Protection Declaration can be found here.
