Ad fontes is free to use with or without registering an account. If you use a login, we will only collect a small amount of data (see our data protection policy) and we will not bother you with emails.
Ad fontes isn’t intended to be completed in a single sitting. If you want to save and track your progress, you can create an account. After logging in, any progress toward a task will be ascribed to your account. You can also use this feature to see which parts of Ad fontes you’ve already completed.
With an account, it’s possible for us to see which pages were visited together or after one another. Doing so allows us to improve our learning resources in a way that targets user needs.
Some additional data is gathered when you're logged in (or are using AAI):
- Email address
- First and last name (optional, you may use a pseudonym)
- Number of logins by username
- Sites visited on the domain adfontes.uzh.ch
Five years after the last login with a username, all data associated with it will be deleted.
Data are gathered to provide users with material in a targeted way and so that a user's learning progress will be saved in case of interruption.
Consent to Additional Data Use/Login
The use of the login function on Ad fontes leads to the storage of the login, possibly name (optional), and email address, as well as entries in exercises and databases, particularly in the "Research" and "Training" sections). By entering and sending this data, you consent to its use.

Contact and Deletion of Data
You can have your data deleted or request more information about its use at any time.
