Software licenses at TU Darmstadt
Unless otherwise stated on the software product pages, you can purchase licenses for a fee via HRZ's software portal – asknet.. Access is only possible via intranet/eduroam/network at TU Darmstadt. In order to buy software at the online shop, you have to initially register online.
The software portal “Studyhouse”is available for students as well.
“Free” Cloud Applications
Several manufacturers apparently offer free use of their products if user data is stored in the manufacturer's cloud, which can be locted outside the EU. We consider this procedure to be questionable under data protection law and expressly do not refer to such offers.
Please be aware of where your data will be stored exactly and who can access it if you plan to use such a product. We advise against storing your data outside the EU.
If you wish to use a data protection-compliant cloud service, we suggest Hessenbox.
