Will my personal data be passed on to an external company (BPS Bildungsportal Sachsen GmbH)? 

The BPS Bildungsportal Sachsen GmbH was established in 2005 as a joint venture of Saxon universities (which also use to be the shareholders). Ever since, the BPS Bildungsportal Sachsen GmbH has assumed system maintenance and development of the learning platform on behalf of the Saxon universities.

An integral part of this infrastructure is a spread authentication mechanism (based on Shibboleth), which uses the login data from the university computer centres. In this way, no new logins need to be assigned by the BPS Bildungsportal Sachsen GmbH, as the existing university accounts can be used to log in to the learning platform. For such an infrastructure, it is necessary that data leaves the servers of the universities - but of course only via secure connections. To allow this, you must give your consent by accepting the terms of use at your registration.

The transmission of data to third parties is prohibited according to §4 of the terms of use. You can obtain free information about your personal data which is stored at the system operator BPS Bildungsportal Sachsen at any time:
