Data Protection Information for Visiting our Website

We want to inform you here about the processing of your personal data and explain your rights as a data subject within the meaning of the European General Data Protection Regulation (from now on “GDPR”) when you visit our website. The data is processed to be able to display the website to you and to ensure the security and stability of the technology systems used. It cannot be ruled out that the data will be processed to provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information for law enforcement purposes in the event of a cyber attack or to assert our civil claims. We have a legitimate interest in data processing within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We legitimately have an interest in a secure and stable website, asserting our civil claims, and successful criminal prosecution. The data is stored in the log files of the IT system of our website host. The data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been fulfilled or can no longer be fulfilled. The exact time of deletion is to be determined for each individual case. The storage will be terminated if civil law claims according to § 199 BGB have become statute-barred or criminal prosecution is no longer possible due to the statute of limitations according to §§ 78, 79 StGB.

Sometimes, we use contract processors within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR to process your personal data. Such service providers bound by our instructions are only used if they meet a high level of information security and, thus also, data protection standards. Your personal data will not be processed for the purpose of automated decision-making (including profiling) in accordance with Art. 22 (1) GDPR. Please note that if you do not provide us with your personal data, you cannot use all functions and services provided via the website or any of the tools we use. For processing your personal data, the basic rule is that we only process your data if this is required by law or contract or if you have given us your consent. Sometimes we may process your personal data because we have a legitimate interest in doing so. When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form and the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

The provider of our website automatically processes data in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits when you access our website. This includes the following data:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Date and time of the server request
  • IP address
  • Referrer URL
  • data transferred

Data Protection Information for Participation in Online Meetings and Webinars as well as Conditions of Participation

We use the Zoom and Google Meet services. Zoom is a service of Zoom Video Communications Inc., San Jose Headquarters, 55 Almaden Boulevard, 6th Floor, San Jose, CA 95123 (from now on “Zoom”). “Google Meet” is a service provided by Google Ireland Ltd, a service company of Google LLC based in the USA.

We use Zoom and Google Meet to conduct video conferences and webinars (from now on both “online meetings”). Various types of personal data are processed in the process. The specific scope of data processing depends, among other things, on which data you make available to us. In any case, we process the following data in particular:

  • Your surname, first name and your e-mail address.
  • Data necessary for the technical implementation, such as your IP address.
  • If you have activated your camera and microphone, you can transmit image and sound data. You can control this yourself by activating or muting the respective functions.
  • You have the option of sharing text, images, audio, and video files – for example, if you use the chat function and share content or if you use the presentation function to share content.
  • We will contact you before and, if necessary, after the webinar to provide you with access to data and to exchange information with you.

As a rule, the online meeting is held based on your consent, which we obtain via a form that is linked to Zoom. Zoom will then send you a participation link. In addition, you will receive another e-mail in which we ask again whether we may also contact you for marketing purposes after the webinar. The legal basis for the processing of personal data is therefore Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR.

The data is stored for as long as it is necessary to provide the technical service, this is usually only necessary until the end of the online meeting. In exceptional cases, the storage is terminated if any civil law claims according to § 199 BGB have become statute-barred or criminal prosecution is no longer possible due to the statute of limitations (§§ 78, 79 StGB).

We store the data that you have provided to us as part of the registration for the webinar in order to receive our newsletter or to be contacted by us for marketing purposes until you withdraw your consent or unsubscribe from our newsletter. Details can be found in our privacy policy for our newsletter.

Personal data processed in connection with participation in “online meetings” are generally not passed on to third parties, with the exception of the service providers Zoom and Google, unless they are intended to be passed on.

If you agree to participate in an online meeting, your personal data will be processed in the USA, among other places. From the point of view of the European Union (“EU”), the USA does not offer an adequate level of protection for the processing of personal data in line with EU standards. According to the judgment of the European Court of Justice (“ECJ”) of July 16, 2020, Az. C-312/18 (also known as “Schrems II”), the previously applicable EU-US Privacy Shield cannot guarantee an adequate level of protection. For example, there is a risk that your personal data will be disclosed to US intelligence services due to the so-called CLOUD Act (“Clarifying Overseas Use of Data Act”). Consider this fact before you agree to participate in the online meeting and thus trigger the transfer of your personal data to the USA.

We draw your attention to the fact that you can share not only personal data but also content during the meeting. You are responsible for this. Therefore, make sure that you do not share any content that

  • violates national or international copyrights and trademarks, patent, name and labeling rights, other industrial property rights or personal rights.
  • contains malware, or
  • is illegal or even punishable, violates public law regulations or requirements or offends common decency.
    By registering for the webinar, you declare that you indemnify us from all third-party claims that can be attributed to illegal participation in the webinar.
