What personal information is collected?
Users of techscreen ( are authenticated through the TU authentication service. When users login with their TU credentials, the login data will be passed to the TU authentication server, which responds with the name and the email address. Neither the TU login username nor the TU password will be stored within techscreen, but only the name, email address and the contributed user content (problems, solutions, evaluations, tags, comments, ratings).
How does techscreen process information?
Techscreen processes the contributed data through several algorithms with the ultimate goal to derive a users competence profile. Since techscreen is still in prototyp mode, we cannot describe detailed process steps yet. We will provide this information as soon as the processing concepts become concrete. A users competence profile is not shared within the community or to other people from outside. It is only visible to a techscreen user itself.
The persons to whom the personal information belongs may be disclosed.
The techscreen service is basically a public service, whereby only TU registered people is allowed to post and access full content. For anonymous people only a teaser information is available.
