Use of Certificate Section and/or of Portal Section if you are a registered
If you wish to use the Certificate Section of the Site, you must register by placing your name and your email address when prompted to create an account ("account"). Optionally, you may provide your affiliation, e.g. your university, organisation etc. You will be prompted to confirm your registration in an e-mail to your e-mail account. PRIF will not verify your name, but the name provided when registering will appear on your certificate and cannot be changed after registration. Your e-mail address will only be used to confirm your registration. In addition to your name, e-mail address and, if applicable, your affiliation, we will also save your examination progress, i.e. the tests you have taken after each learning unit.
If you are logged-in to your account, the categories of data specified above under „Portal Section” will also be acquired and used for statistical purposes and to improve the site and the programme. However, we will not evaluate the data in a way attributable to you.
Please note that, if you are a registered user and are logged into your account, the Site will not distinguish between your use of the Portal Section and your use of the Certificate Section, i.e. that also data about your use of the Portal Section is theoretically attributable to your account. In any event, we will not evaluate this data in a way attributable to you. If you do wish to browse the Portal Section without your data being attributable to your account, please make sure to log-out before visiting the Portal Section.

We do not terminate accounts after a certain time of inactivity nor do we terminate accounts after the successful completion of all tests necessary to obtain the full certificate.
