Universität Stuttgart – Lehre & Lernen online

Terms of Service

The operation of the ILIAS learning platform of the University of Stuttgart is a service of the Information and Communication Center of the University of Stuttgart (IZUS), Technical Information and Communication Services (TIK).

1. Terms of use

For the use of the ILIAS server, the general user regulations (BO) for digital information processing and communication technology (IuK) at the University of Stuttgart of 18.12.2006 apply.

We would like to point out the following in particular: Use of the ILIAS learning platform for non-university tasks, in particular private use, is not permitted either for members of the University of Stuttgart or for third parties.

2. Regulation of use

The ILIAS learning platform may only be used by members of the University of Stuttgart.

If they are carrying out a project that is part of the tasks of the University of Stuttgart, they can also grant access to the platform to persons from other institutions by applying for central guest accounts at SIAM in the appropriate way.

3. No anonymous registration

The personal data must be true.

4. Personal accounts

The ILIAS account is a personal account that may only be used personally and may not be made available to third parties.

Accounts that are used by more than one person, e.g. to distribute administrative activities among several people, are not permitted.

See also VBO IuK paragraph 3.

5. Use of learning materials

All educational materials made available in the access-protected areas are intended for the personal use of those authorized to access them and may not be shared with third parties.

6. Personal data and their visibility in the learning platform

A user account in ILIAS at the University of Stuttgart contains at least a first and last name and an e-mail address as well as the SIAM user name when logging in with a SIAM account. The ILIAS-internal user name is also automatically formed from the first and last name.

All other information in the personal profile is voluntary, as is the explicit release of individual data for other users.

Minimally visible to others is only the ILIAS username (i.e. first and last name) in the member tabs of courses and groups (i.e. only for the respective other members of the corresponding course/group; if access to the member tab (by members) in a course/group has been disabled by the course/group administrator, this data is only visible to the latter).

The data transmitted from SIAM or provided in the registration form will be stored on ILIAS (together with operationally necessary data such as course/group memberships, object ownerships, forum contributions, levies, ILIAS mails, and date and time of the last registration) until the account is deleted.

7. Mail system usage

The ILIAS internal mail system may not be used for advertising.
