Personal data

For the use of the academy platform ILIAS, the participant needs to register once only. Personal information is collected and used for participation in and completion of a course and for issuing a certificate.
When using the KROHNE Academy Online, personal data is stored. The data that is stored in the system is managed by the administrator and by KROHNE. Details will not be disclosed to third parties unless the user registers for a course that was jointly developed with our partners (Example: Course “Functional Safety (SIL)”). In this instance, data can be provided, but exclusively to these partners e.g. for a better classification and for processing of requests.
