Welcome to www.klicker.uzh.ch (the «KLICKERUZH»), a webtool provided by the Teaching Center of the Department of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich («UZH»). UZH takes data protection very seriously, and as a team of UZH, so do we.
In this statement, we explain which user data are collected, processed, and disclosed, and for what purpose, and we describe the measures taken to safeguard the security of these data. All measures conform to the prevailing provisions on data protection. This statement refers to KLICKERUZH specific details. For the UZH’s Data Protection Statement, which we comply with, please see: http://www.uzh.ch/de/privacy.html
What We Do
We collect clickstream information and basic technical information, such as browser type, from VISITORS. We also process, but do not store, the IP address of VISITORS and USERS for the purpose of our polling services.
The information of VISITORS processed during a KLICKERUZH session is the IP address and browser fingerprint only, as VISITORS do not register when participating in a poll. This information is only used for the purpose of preventing major mis- or abuse during polls.
If you register for the Service and become a USER, KLICKERUZH collects the same information that is collected from VISITORS, as well as the personal information that you submit during the registration. Specifically, we process and store the following information with relation to USER accounts: email-address, password (appropriately hashed), the institution, your user scenario (if provided by you), your questions, sessions, and answers to any of your polls.
KLICKERUZH may use your registration information to contact you to: deliver the Service and improve our Site, Service, features and content, and provide customer service; administer and enable your use, enjoyment and navigation of our Site, Service, and mobile Site; better understand your needs and interests; fulfill requests you make; and personalize your experience.
We use a limited number of select service providers to perform work on our behalf. They are permitted to use personal information only for the purpose of providing their services or at an aggregate level.
The data of USERS and VISITORS are processed and stored on a service provider’s servers located in Switzerland and the European Union. The service provider complies with the UZH data storage and privacy requirements, and has agreed to the UZH’s Data Storage requirements.
In order better understand how our USERS and VISITORS navigate the KLICKERUZH website we use Google Analytics.
