Accountability for content

The con­tents of our pages have been cre­at­ed with the utmost care. How­ev­er, we can­not guar­an­tee the con­tents’ accu­ra­cy, com­plete­ness or top­i­cal­i­ty. Accord­ing to statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions, we are fur­ther­more respon­si­ble for our own con­tent on these web pages. In this con­text, please note that we are accord­ing­ly not oblig­ed to mon­i­tor mere­ly the trans­mit­ted or saved infor­ma­tion of third par­ties, or inves­ti­gate cir­cum­stances point­ing to ille­gal activ­i­ty. Our oblig­a­tions to remove or block the use of infor­ma­tion under gen­er­al­ly applic­a­ble laws remain unaf­fect­ed by this as per §§ 8 to 10 of the Tele­me­dia Act (TMG).

Accountability for links

Respon­si­bil­i­ty for the con­tent of exter­nal links (to web pages of third par­ties) lies sole­ly with the oper­a­tors of the linked pages. No vio­la­tions were evi­dent to us at the time of link­ing. Should any legal infringe­ment become known to us, we will remove the respec­tive link imme­di­ate­ly.


Our web pages and their con­tents are sub­ject to Ger­man copy­right law. Unless express­ly per­mit­ted by law (§ 44a et seq. of the copy­right law), every form of uti­liz­ing, repro­duc­ing or pro­cess­ing works sub­ject to copy­right pro­tec­tion on our web pages requires the pri­or con­sent of the respec­tive own­er of the rights. Indi­vid­ual repro­duc­tions of a work are allowed only for pri­vate use, so must not serve either direct­ly or indi­rect­ly for earn­ings. Unau­tho­rized uti­liza­tion of copy­right­ed works is pun­ish­able (§ 106 of the copy­right law).

Data protection policy for the WGC-Website

General information on the intended purpose and the legal basis

All data pro­cess­ing is cov­ered by the prin­ci­ple of neces­si­ty and the link­ing of infor­ma­tion to spe­cif­ic aims. It is also cov­ered by the prin­ci­ples of data min­i­miza­tion and the pro­tec­tion of data in accor­dance with the rel­e­vant state of the art.

WGC only col­lects the amount of data nec­es­sary for ful­fill­ing the task in ques­tion, uses it only for this pur­pose and saves it only for so long as the rel­e­vant laws allow.

The legal basis for the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data is always a law­ful author­i­ty (e.g. high­er edu­ca­tion law, BayEGovG) or the con­sent of the per­son con­cerned. You can find the rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion in detail along­side the rel­e­vant plat­form.

Your rights

You have the right to infor­ma­tion on your per­son­al data we have stored.

Upon request, you will receive infor­ma­tion about

  • the aims of the pro­cess­ing,
  • the cat­e­gories of the per­son­al data,
  • the recip­i­ent (cat­e­gories) to whom this data has been or will be made avail­able in the future,
  • the length of time the data will be saved or the cri­te­ria which this peri­od is based upon,
  • the source of the data, in so far as it has not been direct­ly obtained from you.

Fur­ther, you have a right to the cor­rec­tion of your data. You can refuse the pro­cess­ing of your data, or restrict it and have your data delet­ed, in so far as the data, due to legal require­ments (e.g. from uni­ver­si­ty law, exam­i­na­tion law, archive law), must, in indi­vid­ual cas­es, con­tin­ue to be processed.

In case of con­tra­ven­tions, you have the right to lodge a com­plaint with the com­pe­tent reg­u­lat­ing author­i­ty (see below).

Competent regulating authority

The com­pe­tent reg­u­lat­ing author­i­ty is:

Der Bay­erische Lan­des­beauf­tragte für den Daten­schutz
Post­fach 22 12 19
80502 München

We reserve the right to make changes to this data pro­tec­tion pol­i­cy so that it con­tin­ues to con­form to the cur­rent legal require­ments or to imple­ment changes to our ser­vices in the data pro­tec­tion pol­i­cy, for exam­ple with the intro­duc­tion of new ser­vices.
