FHNW places great importance on correct and up-to-date information. Some or all of the content on our website may therefore need to be amended, deleted or (occasionally) no longer shown.

Personal data
The FHNW is committed to a conscious and economical use of personal data. The data collected is used only for the intended purpose in each case.

The storage of personal data is within the sovereignty of FHNW. Data is stored carefully and protected against third-party access. We secure data via technical and organisational measures in keeping with the latest technological developments. We never disclose personal data to third parties, unless the law requires us to do so or we have obtained express permission.

Cookies are text files which are stored temporarily or permanently on your computer and, for example, enable your use of the website to be analysed.

You can entirely or partially prevent the cookies from being stored on your computer at any time by adjusting the corresponding settings in your browser software. However, please be aware that, if you do so, you may no longer be able to use all of the functions on this website.    

Our Restricting the use of cookies page tells you about different options for deactivating cookies in general or restricting their use on the FHNW website.

Google Analytics
The FHNW uses the Google Analytics web service to receive information about how our website is used. Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by cookies is transmitted to a Google server in the USA. Google has its own privacy policy.

Remarketing and tracking
The FHNW uses the Google Marketing Platform (GMP), Sizmek and Dataxu to display user-relevant advertising. These platforms use cookies. You can disable personalised advertising from Google via Google account settings or block it using a browser plug-in. The opt-in/opt-out status for Sizmek, Dataxu and all common online marketing systems can be viewed and edited via Your Online Choices' cookie management.

Moreover, we use the FHNW Facebook Pixel and the associated remarketing features of the social network Facebook. This allows us to show you targeted, personalised and interest-based advertisements. Facebook matches up this data with your personal Facebook user account in line with its Data Policy.

If you would like to prevent Facebook from showing you advertisements using the remarketing features, you can declare this in your Facebook account settings. Alternatively, you can deactivate this feature for the FHNW website using the cookie restriction referenced above.
