The IUF – Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine takes the protection of your data seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and according to legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy statement.

Our website may be used without entering personal information. If possible, personal data (like name, address or email address) is always collected on a voluntary basis. This data will not be forwarded to any third party without your explicit consent.

Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.

Server log files

For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider (so called server log files), is collected:

  • browser type/browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server enquiry


This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. We reserve the right to check the data subsequently if we have concrete indications for illegal use.
