The use of the learning platform is voluntary.

Data which you have entered as a user or with your use shall be processed automatically in connection with the use of the learning platform starting from the time of registration. Insofar as this data refers to your person, it is personal data. In this respect, the applicable regulations under data privacy law also apply for the learning platform. These require, in particular, specific information about the scope and manner of the collection of personal data and the type and manner of its further processing.

The learning platform based on the "ILIAS" software basically does not record any additional information beyond that which is specified in the application, collected in part automatically and provided in part by the user. In particular, the times at which users access the various components of the information, knowledge, learning programmes and other training offers are not recorded. By working through individual learning programmes, the test results achieved are saved so that they can be viewed at a later time by the user.

All this data is accessible to ASSA ABLOY in the scope of the administration of the learning platform, but it is not available to other users. It is only transmitted for the execution of this user agreement and the respective training measures and is not transmitted to other persons or places, even in anonymous form.

After the end of the learning platform right of use, all data shall be deleted immediately. ASSA ABLOY hereby points out that the user is solely responsible for safeguarding the data which is relevant for them (e.g. test results).
