To the extent permitted by law, the ZHAW explicitly disclaims responsibility or liability for any damages, material or otherwise, resulting from access to the information it publishes, the use or non-use of that information, misuse of the online connection or technical deficiencies of any kind. The ZHAW has not checked any of the third-party websites (i.e. websites operating from a domain name other than zhaw.ch) linked to this website via hyperlinks, and can therefore assume no responsibility for their content or for any products and services offered on them.

Data confidentiality and data security

Any data you enter in the online forms available on this website will be transmitted in unencrypted form. The possibility of data entered by you being lost or viewed by others cannot therefore be ruled out. This means that when entering personal data on our website online, you do so at your own risk.

Any data you enter will be stored on our servers, kept with the utmost care and protected against access by third parties. Within the ZHAW, access to your data is limited to those members of staff who need this for the performance of their duties. We will not disclose any data you enter to third parties. All the data we collate is used solely for its declared purposes and none of it is disclosed to third parties.

Tracking Cookies

The ZHAW uses so-called tracking cookies. These record your IP address, the website from which you are visiting our website, the type of browser software you are using and the ZHAW website pages you are viewing, including details of the date and duration of such viewings. The tracking data collected in this way does not enable specific users to be identified, and which individual people have used the website cannot therefore be determined.

Plug-ins from social media platforms

The ZHAW websites use plug-ins from various third-party social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). When you visit a website that contains such a plug-in, it may automatically transmit data to the third parties. If, at the same time, you are logged into the relevant social network, your visit on the website may be assigned to your account, depending on the provider. The ZHAW has no influence over this data transfer.
