This site is hosted by the University of Luxembourg.
The data collected on the website of the University of Luxembourg, hereafter “the University”, stem exclusively from the voluntary registering of your personal data, for example by subscribing to our newsletter.
Without the use of the session cookies especially, several functions could not be offered on our website.
The legal basis for processing personal data by using session cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 point f) GDPR (legitimate interest) as the legitimate interest of the University is to offer a website adapted to users’ needs.
The information on this page lists the cookies that this website uses and describes their purpose. You will also find some more detail here about cookies relating to our social media channels and Google Analytics, the service we use for our statistics.
The University is active on social media platforms. For instance, the University is present on five key social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and YouTube. These communities strengthen our online presence and visibility.
The University is using session cookies to ensure the correct running of the website. Cookies used by the University of Luxembourg are deleted after the session.
Google Analytics is a service which monitors and evaluates the effectiveness and efficiency of the University website.This platform enables the protection of end-user personal data thanks to features such as IP address de-identification and a mechanism for users to opt-out so that their browsing is not processed for analytics purposes. The IP address de-identification function is activated. If you want to withdraw your consent you must opt-out directly on the Google website (see section 4).
Google Analytics is configured to use the domain “.uni.lu” and to store first-party cookies that expire after 2 years.
Cookies are used by the University to track the following information about visitors. We use this information to prepare aggregated, anonymous statistics reports of visitor activity:
• IP address (masked)
• Location: country, region, city, approximate latitude and longitude (Geolocation)
• Date and time of the request (visit to the site)
• Title of the page being viewed (Page Title)
• URL of the page being viewed (Page URL)
• URL of the page that was viewed prior to the current page (Referrer URL)
• Screen resolution of user’s device
• Time in local visitor’s time-zone
• Files that were clicked and downloaded (Download)
• Links to an outside domain that were clicked (Outlink)
• Pages generation time (the time it takes for webpages to be generated by the webserver and then downloaded by the visitor: Page speed)
• Main language of the browser being used (Accept-Language header)
• Browser version, browser plugins (PDF, Flash, Java, …) operating system version, device identifier (User-Agent header)
• Language of the visited page
• Site Search
Persistent cookies are saved on your computer and are not deleted automatically when you close your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you close your browser.
By default, the browsing experience of website visitors is tracked by Google Analytics in order to produce anonymised statistics. You may choose not to be tracked (opt-out). If you change your mind, you can choose to be tracked again (opt-in).
If you choose to opt-out, you will receive an opt-out cookie so that your decision is remembered. If you regularly delete your cookies, you will need to opt-out each time you delete them.
Do not track is a function that allows visitors to opt out from being tracked by websites for any purpose including the use of analytics services, advertising networks and social platforms. Do not track options are available in a number of browsers including:
All analytics data communication is encrypted via HTTPS protocol. The analytical reports generated can only be accessed through by authorised University staff dealing with Google Analytics or by duly authorised external sub-contractors, who may be required to analyse, develop and/or regularly maintain certain websites.
Note: Institution, city and country origin are determined from the full IP, then stored and aggregated before a mask is applied. Google Analytics uses an IP de-identification mechanism that automatically masks a portion of each visitor’s IP (Internet Protocol), effectively making it impossible to identify a particular visitor via the sole IP address.
Google Analytics automatically deletes visitors’ logs after 25 months. Anonymised and aggregated data are stored for an indefinite period by the University for analysis purposes.
Specific questions about the storage and use of personal data by the University can be sent to us by contacting our Data Protection Officer at email@example.com.
If you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR, you will have the right – without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy – to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement.
In Luxembourg, the competent authority is the Commission Nationale pour la Protection des Données (CNPD).
