SSL encryption
In order to protect your transmitted data in the best possible way, we use SSL encryption. You can recognize encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the URL of the website called up in your browser. (Unencrypted pages are marked by “http://”.) SSL encryption ensures that all data that you transmit to this website – such as inquiries or logins – cannot be read by third parties.

When you click on a video or audio file (this applies to videos and audio files produced by third parties, too), your IP address, the site from which you access it, the date, time, the operating system and the browser you used are automatically stored in the log files created by the server. This is necessary in order to display the content.
The processing of the information stored in the log files is only anonymous for statistical purposes (such as to analyse the use of which pages are accessed, which browsers are used, etc.), so that the services can be improved, protected and developed further. Podcampus saves your IP address anonymously; they do not log the last three digits.
