3. General information and mandatory information

Privacy

The ope­ra­tors of the­se pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­so­nal data very serious­ly. We tre­at your per­so­nal data con­fi­den­ti­al­ly and in accordance with the sta­tu­to­ry data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons and this data pro­tec­tion declaration.

If you use this web­site, various per­so­nal data will be collec­ted. Per­so­nal data is data with which you can be per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fied. This data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on exp­lains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also exp­lains how and for what pur­po­se this happens.

We would like to point out that data trans­mis­si­on on the Inter­net (e.g. when com­mu­ni­ca­ting by e‑mail) can have secu­ri­ty gaps. A com­ple­te pro­tec­tion of the data against access by third par­ties is not possible.

Note on the responsible body

The respon­si­ble body for data pro­ces­sing on this web­site is:

Jan Wit­te
Emmern­stras­se 1
31785 Hame­lin

Tele­pho­ne: +49 (0) 151 637 595 26
Email: jan@bluetreeconsulting.de

The respon­si­ble body is the natu­ral or legal per­son who, alo­ne or tog­e­ther with others, deci­des on the pur­po­ses and means of pro­ces­sing per­so­nal data (e.g. names, e‑mail addres­ses, etc.).

Storage duration

Unless a spe­ci­fic sto­rage peri­od has been spe­ci­fied in this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on, your per­so­nal data will remain with us until the pur­po­se for data pro­ces­sing no lon­ger app­lies. If you assert a legi­ti­ma­te request for dele­ti­on or revo­ke your con­sent to data pro­ces­sing, your data will be dele­ted unless we have other legal­ly per­mis­si­ble rea­sons for sto­ring your per­so­nal data (e.g. tax or com­mer­cial law reten­ti­on peri­ods); in the lat­ter case, the data will be dele­ted once the­se rea­sons have cea­sed to exist.

Note on data transfer to the USA

Our web­site inclu­des tools from com­pa­nies based in the USA. When the­se tools are acti­ve, your per­so­nal data may be trans­fer­red to the US ser­vers of the respec­ti­ve com­pa­nies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third coun­try wit­hin the mea­ning of EU data pro­tec­tion law. US com­pa­nies are obli­ged to release per­so­nal data to secu­ri­ty aut­ho­ri­ties without you as the per­son con­cer­ned being able to take legal action against this. It can the­re­fo­re not be ruled out that US aut­ho­ri­ties (e.g. secret ser­vices) will pro­cess, eva­lua­te and per­ma­nent­ly store your data on US ser­vers for moni­to­ring pur­po­ses. We have no influ­ence on the­se pro­ces­sing activities.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons are only pos­si­ble with your express con­sent. You can revo­ke con­sent that you have alrea­dy given at any time. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing that took place up until the revo­ca­ti­on remains unaf­fec­ted by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ART. 6 ABS. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH A PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS DATA PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR CONCERNED PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN PROVE COMPREHENSIVE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING THAT OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR THE PROCESSING IS FOR THE ENFORCEMENT, EXERCISE OR DEFENSE OF RIGHTS OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ARTICLE 21 (1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 (2) GDPR).

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of the GDPR, tho­se affec­ted have the right to lodge a com­p­laint with a super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty, in par­ti­cu­lar in the Mem­ber Sta­te of their habi­tu­al resi­dence, their place of work or the place of the alle­ged vio­la­ti­on. The right to lodge a com­p­laint is without pre­ju­di­ce to any other admi­nis­tra­ti­ve or judi­cial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we pro­cess auto­ma­ti­cal­ly on the basis of your con­sent or in ful­fill­ment of a con­tract han­ded over to you or to a third par­ty in a com­mon, machi­ne-read­a­ble for­mat. If you request the direct trans­fer of the data to ano­t­her per­son respon­si­ble, this will only be done to the extent that it is tech­ni­cal­ly feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­si­on of con­fi­den­ti­al con­tent, such as orders or inqui­ries that you send to us as the site ope­ra­tor, this site uses SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on. You can reco­gni­ze an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by the fact that the address line of the brow­ser chan­ges from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock sym­bol in your brow­ser line.

If SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on is acti­va­ted, the data that you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third parties.

Information, deletion and correction

Wit­hin the frame­work of the app­li­ca­ble legal pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to free infor­ma­ti­on about your stored per­so­nal data, its ori­gin and reci­pi­ent and the pur­po­se of the data pro­ces­sing and, if necessa­ry, a right to cor­rec­tion or dele­ti­on of this data at any time. You can con­ta­ct us at any time if you have any fur­ther ques­ti­ons on the sub­ject of per­so­nal data.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data. You can con­ta­ct us at any time for this. The right to restric­tion of pro­ces­sing exists in the fol­lowing cases:

  • If you dis­pu­te the accu­ra­cy of your per­so­nal data stored by us, we usual­ly need time to check this. For the dura­ti­on of the exami­na­ti­on, you have the right to request that the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data be restricted.
  • If the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data happened/is hap­pe­ning unlaw­ful­ly, you can request the restric­tion of data pro­ces­sing ins­tead of deletion.
  • If we no lon­ger need your per­so­nal data, but you need it to exer­cise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data be restric­ted ins­tead of being deleted.
  • If you have lod­ged an objec­tion in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, your inte­rests and ours must be weig­hed up. As long as it has not yet been deter­mi­ned who­se inte­rests pre­vail, you have the right to demand that the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data be restricted.

If you have restric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data, this data — apart from its sto­rage — may only be used with your con­sent or to assert, exer­cise or defend legal claims or to pro­tect the rights of ano­t­her natu­ral or legal per­son or for rea­sons of important public inte­rest of the Euro­pean Uni­on or a Mem­ber Sta­te are processed.

Objecting to Promotional Emails

We her­eby object to the use of con­ta­ct data publis­hed as part of the imprint obli­ga­ti­on to send unso­li­ci­ted adver­ti­sing and infor­ma­ti­on mate­ri­al. The site ope­ra­tors express­ly reser­ve the right to take legal action in the event of unso­li­ci­ted adver­ti­sing being sent, such as spam e‑mails.

4. Data collection on this website

Cookies

Our web­site uses so-cal­led “coo­kies”. Coo­kies are small text files and do not cau­se any dama­ge to your end device. They are stored on your end device eit­her tem­pora­ri­ly for the dura­ti­on of a ses­si­on (ses­si­on coo­kies) or per­ma­nent­ly (per­ma­nent coo­kies). Ses­si­on coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after your visit. Per­ma­nent coo­kies remain stored on your end device until you dele­te them yourself or until they are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted by your web browser.

In some cases, coo­kies from third-par­ty com­pa­nies can also be stored on your end device when you enter our site (third-par­ty coo­kies). The­se enab­le us or you to use cer­tain ser­vices of the third-par­ty com­pa­ny (e.g. coo­kies for pro­ces­sing pay­ment services).

Coo­kies have dif­fe­rent func­tions. Nume­rous coo­kies are tech­ni­cal­ly necessa­ry becau­se cer­tain web­site func­tions would not work without them (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion or the dis­play of vide­os). Other coo­kies are used to eva­lua­te user beha­vi­or or to dis­play advertising.

Coo­kies that are requi­red to car­ry out the elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on pro­cess (necessa­ry coo­kies) or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions you want (func­tio­n­al coo­kies, e.g. for the shop­ping cart func­tion) or to opti­mi­ze the web­site (e.g. coo­kies for mea­su­ring the web audi­ence). stored on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR, unless ano­t­her legal basis is spe­ci­fied. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the sto­rage of coo­kies for the tech­ni­cal­ly error-free and opti­mi­zed pro­vi­si­on of its ser­vices. If con­sent to the sto­rage of coo­kies was reques­ted, the rele­vant coo­kies are stored exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of this con­sent (Arti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR); the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

You can set your brow­ser so that you are infor­med about the set­ting of coo­kies and only allow coo­kies in indi­vi­du­al cases, exclu­de the accep­t­ance of coo­kies for cer­tain cases or in gene­ral and acti­va­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies when the brow­ser is clo­sed. If coo­kies are deac­ti­va­ted, the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of this web­site may be restricted.

If coo­kies are used by third-par­ty com­pa­nies or for ana­ly­sis pur­po­ses, we will inform you of this sepa­r­ate­ly in this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on and, if necessa­ry, ask for your consent.

Cookie consent with Borlabs Cookie

Our web­site uses Borlabs Cookie’s coo­kie con­sent tech­no­lo­gy to obtain your con­sent to the sto­rage of cer­tain coo­kies in your brow­ser and to docu­ment this in com­pli­an­ce with data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons. This tech­no­lo­gy is pro­vi­ded by Borlabs — Ben­ja­min A. Born­schein, Georg-Wil­helm-Str. 17, 21107 Ham­burg (her­ein­af­ter Borlabs).

When you enter our web­site, a Borlabs coo­kie is stored in your brow­ser, which stores the con­sent you have given or the with­dra­wal of this con­sent. This data is not pas­sed on to the pro­vi­der of Borlabs Cookie.

The collec­ted data is stored until you ask us to dele­te it or dele­te the Borlabs coo­kie yourself or the pur­po­se for sto­ring the data no lon­ger app­lies. Man­da­to­ry sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on peri­ods remain unaf­fec­ted. Details on data pro­ces­sing by Borlabs Coo­kie can be found at https://de.borlabs.io/kb/which-data-stores-borlabs-cookie/

Borlabs coo­kie con­sent tech­no­lo­gy is used to obtain the legal­ly requi­red con­sent for the use of coo­kies. The legal basis for this is Arti­cle 6 Para­graph 1 Clau­se 1 Let­ter c GDPR.

Server log files

The pro­vi­der of the pages auto­ma­ti­cal­ly collects and stores infor­ma­ti­on in so-cal­led ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser auto­ma­ti­cal­ly trans­mits to us. The­se are:

  • Brow­ser type and brow­ser version
  • Ope­ra­ting sys­tem used
  • Refer­rer URL
  • Host name of the acces­sing computer
  • Time of ser­ver request
  • IP address

This data is not mer­ged with other data sources.

This data is collec­ted on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the tech­ni­cal­ly error-free pre­sen­ta­ti­on and opti­miz­a­ti­on of his web­site — the ser­ver log files must be recor­ded for this purpose.

Contact form

If you send us inqui­ries via the con­ta­ct form, your details from the inqui­ry form, inclu­ding the con­ta­ct details you pro­vi­ded the­re, will be stored by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing the inqui­ry and in the event of fol­low-up ques­ti­ons. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

This data is pro­ces­sed on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your request is rela­ted to the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or is necessa­ry to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other cases, the pro­ces­sing is based on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the effec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing of inqui­ries addres­sed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your con­sent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this was queried.

The data you enter in the con­ta­ct form will remain with us until you ask us to dele­te it, revo­ke your con­sent to sto­rage or the pur­po­se for data sto­rage no lon­ger app­lies (e.g. after your request has been pro­ces­sed). Man­da­to­ry legal pro­vi­si­ons — in par­ti­cu­lar reten­ti­on peri­ods — remain unaffected.

Inquiry by email, telephone or fax

If you con­ta­ct us by e‑mail, tele­pho­ne or fax, your request, inclu­ding all per­so­nal data resul­ting from it (name, request) will be stored and pro­ces­sed by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

This data is pro­ces­sed on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your request is rela­ted to the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or is necessa­ry to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other cases, the pro­ces­sing is based on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the effec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing of inqui­ries addres­sed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your con­sent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this was queried.

The data you sent to us via con­ta­ct requests will remain with us until you request dele­ti­on, revo­ke your con­sent to sto­rage or the pur­po­se for data sto­rage no lon­ger app­lies (e.g. after your request has been pro­ces­sed). Man­da­to­ry legal pro­vi­si­ons — in par­ti­cu­lar sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on peri­ods — remain unaffected.

Communication via WhatsApp

We use the Whats­App instant messaging ser­vice to com­mu­ni­ca­te with our cus­to­mers and other third par­ties. The pro­vi­der is Whats­App Ire­land Limi­ted, 4 Grand Canal Squa­re, Grand Canal Har­bour, Dub­lin 2, Ireland

Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on takes place via end-to-end encryp­ti­on (peer-to-peer), which pre­vents Whats­App or other third par­ties from gai­ning access to the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on con­tent. Howe­ver, Whats­App recei­ves access to meta­da­ta that ari­ses in the cour­se of the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on pro­cess (e.g. sen­der, reci­pi­ent and time). We would also like to point out that Whats­App, accord­ing to its own state­ments, shares per­so­nal data of its users with its US-based parent com­pa­ny Face­book. For more details on data pro­ces­sing, see WhatsApp’s pri­va­cy poli­cy at: https://www.whatsapp.com/legal/#privacy-policy

Whats­App is used on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in com­mu­ni­ca­ting with cus­to­mers, inte­res­ted par­ties and other busi­ness and con­trac­tu­al part­ners as quick­ly and effec­tively as pos­si­ble (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR). If a cor­re­spon­ding con­sent was reques­ted, the data pro­ces­sing takes place exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of the con­sent; this can be revo­ked at any time with effect for the future.

The com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on con­tent exch­an­ged bet­ween and on Whats­App remains with us until you ask us to dele­te it, revo­ke your con­sent to sto­rage or the pur­po­se for data sto­rage no lon­ger app­lies (e.g. after your request has been pro­ces­sed). Man­da­to­ry legal pro­vi­si­ons — in par­ti­cu­lar reten­ti­on peri­ods — remain unaffected.

We use Whats­App in the “Whats­App Busi­ness” variant.

Data trans­fer to the USA is based on the stan­dard con­trac­tu­al clau­ses of the EU Com­mis­si­on. Details can be found here: https://www.whatsapp.com/legal/business-data-processing-terms?lang=de.

We have set up our Whats­App accounts in such a way that the­re is no auto­ma­tic data com­pa­ri­son with the address book on the smart­pho­nes in use.

We have con­clu­ded an order pro­ces­sing con­tract with WhatsApp.

5. Analysis Tools and Advertising

Google Analytics

This web­site uses the func­tions of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, a web ana­ly­sis ser­vice pro­vi­ded by Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land, on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DS-GVO). You can vol­un­ta­ri­ly give us your con­sent when you visit our web­site by cli­cking on the cor­re­spon­ding but­ton in the “coo­kie ban­ner”. As part of the pro­ces­sing descri­bed below, data is also regu­lar­ly trans­mit­ted to Goog­le LLC (1600 Amphi­thea­ter Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA). Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted and Goog­le LLC are collec­tively refer­red to below as “Goog­le”. Goog­le Ana­ly­tics uses coo­kies (first-par­ty coo­kies) that enab­le an ana­ly­sis of your use of the web­site. Howe­ver, this does not mean that we are immedia­te­ly infor­med of your iden­ti­ty. Goog­le uses the infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by the coo­kies on our behalf to eva­lua­te the use of the web­site, to com­pi­le reports on web­site acti­vi­ty and to pro­vi­de us with other ser­vices rela­ted to web­site acti­vi­ty and inter­net usa­ge. This enab­les us to impro­ve the qua­li­ty of our web­site and its con­tent. Based on sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­ses, we learn how the web­site is used and can thus con­stant­ly opti­mi­ze our offer.

The infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by the Goog­le Ana­ly­tics coo­kies about your use of this web­site (e.g. time, place and fre­quen­cy of your web­site visit inclu­ding IP address) is trans­mit­ted to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA and stored the­re. Goog­le is cer­ti­fied under the Pri­va­cy Shield Agree­ment (https://www.privacyshield.gov/eu-us-framework). We have set the sto­rage peri­od at Goog­le for cor­re­spon­ding data at user and event level to 14 mon­ths (shor­test pos­si­ble set­ting option).

IP anonymization

We have acti­va­ted the IP anony­miz­a­ti­on func­tion on this web­site. As a result, your IP address will be shor­ten­ed by Goog­le wit­hin mem­ber sta­tes of the Euro­pean Uni­on or in other con­trac­ting sta­tes of the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­no­mic Area befo­re it is trans­mit­ted to the USA and thus made anony­mous. Only in excep­tio­nal cases will the full IP address be sent to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA and shor­ten­ed the­re. Accord­ing to Google’s own infor­ma­ti­on, the IP address trans­mit­ted by your brow­ser as part of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics will not be mer­ged with other Goog­le data about you.

Browser plug-in

You can pre­vent the sto­rage of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics coo­kies by set­ting your brow­ser soft­ware accord­in­gly (see abo­ve). You can also pre­vent Goog­le from collec­ting the data gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie and rela­ted to your use of the web­site (inclu­ding your IP address) and from pro­ces­sing this data by Goog­le by down­loading the brow­ser plug-in avail­ab­le under the fol­lowing link and install: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Objection against data collection

Alter­na­tively, you can activate/deactivate the collec­tion of your data by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, in par­ti­cu­lar on mobi­le devices, by cli­cking on the fol­lowing link:

Disable Google Analytics

If you deac­ti­va­te it, a coo­kie will be set to pre­vent your data from being collec­ted on future visits to this website.

With WP Sta­tis­tics we can ana­ly­ze the use of our web­site. WP Sta­tis­tics records, among other things, Log files (IP address, refer­rer, brow­ser used, ori­gin of the user, search engi­ne used) and actions taken by web­site visi­tors on the site (e.g. clicks and views).

The data recor­ded with WP Sta­tis­tics is stored exclu­si­ve­ly on our own ser­ver and is not pas­sed on to WordPress.

This ana­ly­sis tool is used on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the anony­mous ana­ly­sis of user beha­vi­or in order to opti­mi­ze both our web­site and our adver­ti­sing. If a cor­re­spon­ding con­sent was reques­ted (e.g. con­sent to the sto­rage of coo­kies), pro­ces­sing takes place exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

6. Plugins and Tools

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-cal­led web fonts pro­vi­ded by Goog­le for the uni­form dis­play of fonts. When you call up a page, your brow­ser loads the requi­red web fonts into your brow­ser cache in order to dis­play text and fonts correctly.

For this pur­po­se, the brow­ser you are using must con­nect to the Goog­le ser­vers. This gives Goog­le know­ledge that this web­site was acces­sed via your IP address. Goog­le Web­Fonts are used on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the uni­form pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the typeface on his web­site. If a cor­re­spon­ding con­sent was reques­ted (e.g. con­sent to the sto­rage of coo­kies), pro­ces­sing takes place exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

If your brow­ser does not sup­port web fonts, a stan­dard font will be used by your computer.

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on Goog­le Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Wor­d­fence is used to pro­tect our web­site from unwan­ted access or mali­cious cyber attacks. For this pur­po­se, our web­site estab­lis­hes a per­ma­nent con­nec­tion to the Wor­d­fence ser­vers so that Wor­d­fence can com­pa­re and, if necessa­ry, block its data­ba­ses with the access made to our website.

Wor­d­fence is used on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in pro­tec­ting its web­site from cyber attacks as effec­tively as pos­si­ble. If a cor­re­spon­ding con­sent has been reques­ted, the pro­ces­sing takes place exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

7. Audio and Video Conferencing

Data processing

We use online con­fe­rence tools, among other things, to com­mu­ni­ca­te with our cus­to­mers. The spe­ci­fic tools we use are lis­ted below. If you com­mu­ni­ca­te with us via video or audio con­fe­rence over the Inter­net, your per­so­nal data will be collec­ted and pro­ces­sed by us and the pro­vi­der of the respec­ti­ve con­fe­rence tool.

The con­fe­rence tools collect all data that you provide/use to use the tools (e‑mail address and/or your tele­pho­ne num­ber). Fur­ther­mo­re, the con­fe­rence tools pro­cess the dura­ti­on of the con­fe­rence, start and end (time) of par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on in the con­fe­rence, num­ber of par­ti­ci­pants and other “con­text infor­ma­ti­on” in con­nec­tion with the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on pro­cess (meta­da­ta).

Fur­ther­mo­re, the pro­vi­der of the tool pro­ces­ses all tech­ni­cal data that is requi­red to pro­cess online com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. This inclu­des in par­ti­cu­lar IP addres­ses, MAC addres­ses, device IDs, device type, ope­ra­ting sys­tem type and ver­si­on, cli­ent ver­si­on, came­ra type, micro­pho­ne or loud­spea­ker and the type of connection.

If con­tent is exch­an­ged, uploa­ded or pro­vi­ded in any other way wit­hin the tool, this is also stored on the ser­vers of the tool pro­vi­ders. Such con­tent inclu­des but is not limi­ted to cloud record­ings, chat/instant messages, voice­mails, uploa­ded pho­tos and vide­os, files, white­boards and other infor­ma­ti­on shared while using the Service.

Plea­se note that we do not have full influ­ence on the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons of the tools used. Our opti­ons are lar­ge­ly based on the cor­po­ra­te poli­cy of the respec­ti­ve pro­vi­der. Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on data pro­ces­sing by the con­fe­rence tools can be found in the data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­ons of the tools used, which we have lis­ted below this text.

Purpose and legal bases

The con­fe­rence tools are used to com­mu­ni­ca­te with pro­spec­ti­ve or exis­ting con­trac­tu­al part­ners or to offer cer­tain ser­vices to our cus­to­mers (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO). Fur­ther­mo­re, the use of the tools ser­ves to gene­ral­ly sim­pli­fy and acce­le­ra­te com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on with us or our com­pa­ny (legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest wit­hin the mea­ning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). If con­sent has been reques­ted, the tools in ques­ti­on will be used on the basis of this con­sent; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time with effect for the future. 

Storage duration

The data collec­ted direct­ly by us via the video and con­fe­rence tools will be dele­ted from our sys­tems as soon as you request us to dele­te it, revo­ke your con­sent to sto­rage or the pur­po­se for data sto­rage no lon­ger app­lies. Saved coo­kies remain on your end device until you dele­te them. Man­da­to­ry sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on peri­ods remain unaffected.

We have no influ­ence on the sto­rage peri­od of your data, which is stored by the ope­ra­tors of the con­fe­rence tools for their own pur­po­ses. For details, plea­se con­ta­ct the ope­ra­tors of the con­fe­rence tools directly.
