According to the Hochschulstatistikgesetz (University Statistics Law) from 2 November 1990 (Federal Law Gazette I p 2414), which has been amended by Article 3 of the Law from 7 December 2016 (Federal Law Gazette I p. 2826), the TU Bergakademie Freiberg is obliged to deliver annual statistics about their doctoral students to the Kamenz Statistical Office.
For this reason, you are obliged to complete the following data sheet as an annex to the “Declaration of Intent”. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that you have to report any change regarding these data as well as interruptions during the doctoral studies to the Graduierten- und Forschungsakademie (Graduate Center of Advanced Study and Research).
In addition, due to the legal regulations, we will ask you annually whether you would like to continue with your doctoral studies or not.
The collected data will be used exclusively for internal purposes (administration of the doctoral process) as well as in an anonymous form for statistical queries from third parties (Statistisches Landesamt, ministries, etc.). We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your co-operation.
note refering data protection: because of several different workarounds there is no protection of your data input through "https". If you want extra protection while your data input, please consider the usage of a VPN-Service. Via VPN your data input is extra protected by the VPN-Tunnel of the Bergakademie, similar to https. For more on this service please visit http://tu-freiberg.de/urz/dienste/vpn. Of course you are able to input data into the form even without extra protection. VPN and https are only protecting the input of the data and the transfer from the user to the server anyway, but do not affect the data storage. Once saved on the server, the data is protected from access by the firewall of the Bergakademie and the special server architecture. So, your saved data are protected but the data input is not for sure.
