Cloud Printing lets you submit a print job from an end device to any of the photocopiers at the LMU or in the University Library on which this function has been enabled. You can then go to any such enabled copier to print your job. A charge will be made for this service. You can print a wide variety of file formats, such as Office documents, PDFs and images.

Use the number on your Mensa card as ID when submitting or printing your print job. Payment for the printed copies will also be processed via your Mensa card.

Photocopiers offering Cloud Printing are designated by a special sticker.

Data security and data protection

Personal data

The Mensa card contains no personal data and the card number is not assigned to a particular person. The use of the Cloud Printing service is therefore anonymous.

Storing and deleting print jobs

All print jobs are stored on a server in the computer centre within Department VI of the University's Central Administration The server is administered by the company Ricoh. The data are processed in the Münchner Wissenschaftsnetz (Munich Academic Network). The print jobs are deleted following printing. If you do not print out your print job it will be deleted automatically after 3 days.

Data encryption

Each individual print job is transmitted over an encrypted internet connection and is stored in encrypted form on both the server and the photocopier. The print job can only be accessed and decrypted following authentication using the associated Mensa card.
