Despite careful checking, we assume no liability for the content of external links. The content of linked external websites is the exclusive reponsibility of their operators.

Data Protection
The DKFZ undertakes to protect the private sphere of all persons using its website and to treat any personal information provided in strictest confidence. The information is solely used for the respective purposes given and will not be passed on to third parties. It will be deleted as soon as it has served the given purpose. Your web browser or client software may transfer information without your knowledge via your computer (for example IP address) to our server. Such information is never brought in direct connection with you, but is evaluated in anonymous form for statistical purposes for system management or to improve the efficiency of our internet platform.

For requirements-based design and optimization of this website, solutions and technologies from econda GmbH ( are used to gather and save anonymized data, and user profiles are generated from these data using pseudonyms. For this purpose, cookies may be applied that enable the recognition of an Internet browser. However, user profiles are not merged with data on the bearer of the pseudonym without express consent of the visitor. Particularly IP addresses are rendered illegible immediately upon entry, such that the allocation of user profiles to IP addresses is not possible. Visitors to this website can object here to future data collection and saving of data at any time.

The Internet website of the NCT Heidelberg sometimes uses cookies, which are small text files that are stored on the user's computer. Most of the cookies used at are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after a session at the NCT Heidelberg website is ended and the website is exited. Of course the website may also be viewed without cookies. In order to prevent the use of cookies, you must select "do not accept cookies" in your browser settings. If your browser does not accept cookies, however, the range of functions of the website may be limited.

Heidelberg University Hospital

Data Protection

In case of accessing the general information of the university hospital, information about user access will exclusively be stored in anonymous form in the log files. Only the fact of accessing and the document accessed will be stored. A reference to the identity of the user is in all cases excluded. No single user profile will be created, also not in pseudonym form.

Third Parties
You will find many links (=cross references) on the pages of Heidelberg University Hospital, also in the form of banners, to third party websites. These are labeled as such. Following the activation of these links a new window will be opened and the user will be transferred to the offer of the third party.In the case of direct or indirect references to external internet pages which are outside the area of responsibility of the hospital, liability will exclusively come into effect in the case of Heidelberg University Hospital having knowledge of its content and were it to be technically possible and acceptable for it to prevent the use in the case of illegal content. The University Hospital therefore states explicitly that, at the time of the link being put in place, the corresponding pages were free of illegal content. It has absolutely no influence over the current and future form and over the content of the linked/connected pages of these third parties. It therefore explicitly distances itself from the content of all linked/connected pages which are changed following the link being put in place.
