The DirActNI framework was developed as technical part of a Master Thesis in Computer Sciences at the Universität Paderborn
and in cooperation with the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences
This work is part of the research field of the useTable
team. The team develops and analyses novel interaction techniques for (whole-)body, tangible, and (multi)touch applications.
The aim of the thesis was the implementation and evaluation of contactless (whole-body) 3D interaction techniques.
Like most website operators, DirActNI.de collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Therefore DirActNI.de uses with Piwik
an open source web analytics software. DirActNI.de’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how DirActNI.de’s visitors use its website. From time to time, DirActNI.de may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
DirActNI.de also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. DirActNI.de does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to DirActNI.de’s websites choose to interact with DirActNI.de in ways that require DirActNI.de to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DirActNI.de gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who want to contact us to provide their name and email address, in order to enable a reply. In each case, DirActNI.de collects such information only as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with DirActNI.de. DirActNI.de does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
DirActNI.de will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
DirActNI.de takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
DirActNI.de may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, DirActNI.de may reveal how the user navigate through the website.
