The Chair for Clinical Bioinformatics Saarland University (CCB) complies exactly with the overarching Saarland University Privacy Notice granting two exceptions, listed below. The following alterations take precedence over the corresponding sections under the “Web analysis using Matomo (formerly PIWIK)” heading on the Saarland University Privacy Notice.

Storage period

Data are stored indefinitely.

Options for filing an objection or requesting removal

As cookies are stored on the user’s computer and are transmitted from it by a Saarland University website, users have full control over the use of cookies. Users can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in their web browser. Cookies that are already stored can be erased at any time. This may also be done automatically. If you deactivate cookies for a Saarland University website, you may not be able to use some of the website’s functions in full.

Our users can opt out of the analysis process. To do this, you must uncheck the corresponding check box. This places an additional cookie on the user’s system that signals to our system not to store the user’s data. If the user subsequently deletes this cookie from their own system, they must set the opt-out cookie again.

Please note that the following check box only pertains to tracking by those webtools under the purview of the CCB, which are listed on our Software page. Tracking for other Saarland University sites are managed independently of the CCB, and must be opted-out of separately.
