  • Data Protection

    The non-profit DFN-Verein (Association for the Promotion of a German Research Network), which operates the DFNconf service based on the software Pexip itself, is an association of German universities. The University of Münster is a member of this association and obtains numerous services from it, especially Internet and telephony, but also DFNconf. Further information on data protection at DFNconf is available at https://www.conf.dfn.de/datenschutz/ [de].
