On November 16, 2020, we will launch the "BTU Contact Tracking" web app. This will simplify the required documentation and tracking of contacts/meetings at BTU locations. It is used in compliance with data protection regulations and can be accessed both via mobile devices and via PC/laptop. Simply use the direct link to the webapp.
By actively and carefully documenting your own contacts via the web app, chains of infection can be quickly identified and interrupted.
Thank you very much for your assistance!
If technical problems occur or rooms/QR codes are missing, please contact it-support(at)b-tu.de
The classrooms of the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg (lecture halls and seminar rooms) are equipped with QR codes. As long as not all classrooms have received a QR code, we request that you make manual bookings in our electronic system via the website https://www.b-tu.de/kontaktnachverfolgung.
The QR codes must be scanned with a mobile device before entering the rooms.
By scanning the QR codes you will be taken directly to the web app:
- Staff and students only need their university account/LDAP to log in.
- External persons enter their first and last name as well as a telephone number or e-mail address.
Those who do not have a mobile device can also enter the data manually via the website www.b-tu.de/kontaktnachverfolgung. Employees and guests in offices, workshops and laboratories without a QR code must also manually log in and out of the https://www.b-tu.de/kontaktnachverfolgung system.
In the event of an inquiry by the public health department, only the first and last name, e-mail address or telephone number of the contact persons will be passed on within a certain period of time.
Note: If a person leaves the room in which they were previously registered, the person must log out again using the "Leave room" function in the contact tracking app. If this does not happen, the person remains logged in to the room until he or she enters another room or the day is over. Double bookings (i.e. booking several rooms in one period) are not provided for in the system.
We collect and process the personal data collected in this process according to articles 5 and 6 of the DSGVO, § 5 and 6 BbgDSG only for the purpose of contact tracing in accordance with the SARS-CoV-2 containment regulation of the state of Brandenburg.
A summary of the responsible Ministry of Science, Research and Culture, under which conditions attendance events can be held at Brandenburg universities, can be found at: https://mwfk.brandenburg.de/mwfk/de/ministerium/umgang-mit-corona-pandemie/ (accessed on 02.10.2020)
In the event that a Covid-19-infected person is present on the premises of BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg, BTU must be in a position to provide a list of all contact persons within 24 hours upon request of the responsible health authority.
To meet this request, the BTU crisis management team has opted for digital contact recording. This is a secure, efficient and paperless way to comply with the Containment Ordinance.
In accordance with co-determination, the General Staff Council has given its written consent to the use of the contact tracking app.
All students, employees and guests must use this secure, data protection-compliant and very efficient way of tracking contacts. It is in everyone's interest to track and break through Corona cases.
Important: The data will only be passed on to third parties upon request by the public health department.
