Data protection

Data protection is very important to us as a university.

Below you will find information about data protection incidents or suspected cases in Faculty III. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at F3-Datenschutz(at)

Data protection incidents in Faculty III

Dear student and academic assistants, staff and lecturers,

the implementation of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires a different and more personal approach to data. We all benefit from this as users, but at the same time we must take this care in our own work with other people's data.

As soon as it becomes known that data has been lost, the GDPR requires a report to be made to the respective state data protection commissioner within 72 hours (including weekends and public holidays). Within this period, the persons responsible for the organisational unit, the information security officers and the HsH Executive Board must be informed at the same time.

The reporting of data protection incidents to bodies external to the university takes place exclusively via the Executive Board.

We have developed this process for Faculty III to make it easier and quicker for you to deal with in everyday life. The following instructions therefore serve as an aid to action and are at the same time binding for dealing with data loss of all kinds (digital and analogue origin) in Faculty III.

Suspected cases of data loss

As soon as you become aware of the loss of (analogue or digital) data in your area of work and activity, you must inform the Dean. This applies to all student and research assistants, staff members and all teachers. In order to make it simple and at the same time complete for you, we have combined the necessary questions into a Word form, which you should answer and send immediately after becoming aware of the data loss.

In doing so, you have simultaneously informed the Dean as the person responsible for the organisational unit and the data protection team of Faculty III; you can also reach the team at: F3-Datenschutz(at)

If we subsequently have any questions for you, we will get in touch.Thank you very much for your cooperation!

Best Wishes

Dean's Office of Faculty III
