Privacy policy for myUCPH

1. Owner information

The myUCPH app is offered by:

The University of Copenhagen
Nørregade 10
DK-1165 Copenhagen K

Phone: +45 35 32 26 26

2. Who can use myUCPH?

myUCPH is the official app for students at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH) and is primarily targeted students at UCPH. However, it is also possible for employees at UCPH to use the app in a way where content aimed at students is not included. Finally, anyone interested can use the app via a guest login where the app is adapted so that content aimed at staff and students is not included. The app is available for download in Google Play and in the App Store.

3. Data collection in connection with the use of myUCPH

UCPH does not collect any personal data apart from the UCPH username used by students and employees to log into the app. The username is used only for the purpose of logging in and, in the case of students, to personalise content: Personal schedules, study messages and Absalon messages.

UCPH gathers statistics on the use of the app's components and features in order to improve the design, functionality and content of the app. Examples of the data we collect: Page views, technical data about the type of mobile device you are using, your unit's IP address, your mobile network operator and your operating system. Our app does not collect precise information about the location of your mobile device but merely information about which country you are in. All data is made anonymous and cannot be linked to a specific user. To collect and process statistics, we use the tool Google Firebase Crashlytics.

UCPH does not collect any other data via the permissions that you grant the app and only collects data for statistics about the use of the app.

4. Push notifications

myUCPH uses push notifications only if you have given your consent when the app is first opened. If you accept receiving push notifications, you will, as a student at UCPH, receive push notifications when you receive a new study message or a new message from Absalon. Employees and students at UCPH may also receive emergency messages as push notifications in connection with an emergency situation (e.g. fire). You can, at any time, turn off push notifications via the settings on your mobile device.
