Data protection statement

On our website we use the "Powermail" function of TYPO3 to provide contact forms. The data voluntarily entered in these forms is transferred by email to our OTRS ticket system, where it is further processed by the persons responsible. Under no circumstances will these data be passed on to third parties without your explicit prior consent. The form data is also stored temporarily in the database of our Content Management System for the event of a malfunction of the mail system and/or OTRS.

The processing tickets in OTRS are archived after 30 days in agreement with the staff councils of the University of Cologne and the data protection officer and completely deleted after two years at the latest. If you wish to delete your ticket and the data you have entered before this period has expired, please send us an email to fdm-support(at)

In addition, the general Data Protection Statement of the University of Cologne applies without restriction.
