The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which has been in force since 25 May 2018, regulates the basic principles of user data protection. To meet the requirements of the GDPR OpenOlat offers on the one hand the possibility to export user data and on the other hand the deletion of users and their data.
Deleting OpenOlat users has the following effect:
The user data stored in OpenOlat can be exported for each user.
The export must be requested from the respective user administrator. The user administrator can perform the export via the user management. The export is then available for download in the personal settings of the user who requested the export in the "User data" tab. In addition, a download link is generated, which can be made available to the user by the user administrator.
|The exported user data can only be viewed by the user who requested the export. Other users and the user administrator who executed the export do not have access to the exported data.|
|The export serves solely to inform the user which data is stored and processed on OpenOlat. It is not possible to restore a deleted user.|
Visibility of e-mail addresses in OpenOlat
E-mail addresses of other users are only visible in OpenOlat for administrative users, not for normal users.
