16. Online-based Audio and Video Conferences (Conference tools)
We use online conference tools, among other things, for communication with our customers. The tools we use are listed in detail below. If you communicate with us by video or audio conference using the Internet, your personal data will be collected and processed by the provider of the respective conference tool and by us. The conferencing tools collect all information that you provide/access to use the tools (email address and/or your phone 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” related to the communication process (metadata).
Furthermore, the provider of the tool processes all the technical data required for the processing of the 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.
Should content be exchanged, uploaded or otherwise made available within the tool, it is also stored on the servers of the tool provider. Such content includes, but is not limited to, cloud recordings, chat/ instant messages, voicemail uploaded photos and videos, files, whiteboards and other information shared while using the service.
Please note that we do not have complete influence on the data processing procedures of the tools used. Our possibilities are largely determined by 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, and which we have listed below this text.
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 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR). Furthermore, the use of the tools serves to generally simplify and accelerate communication with us or our company (legitimate interest in the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Insofar as consent has been requested, the tools in question will be used on the basis of this consent; the consent may be revoked at any time with effect from that date. Insofar as video conferences are used as part of the initiation or implementation of an employment relationship, in addition to our legitimate interests, Section 26 BDSG is the legal basis.
Duration of storage
Data collected directly by us via the video and conference tools will be deleted from our systems immediately after you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or the reason for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected.
We have no influence on the duration of storage of your data that is stored by the operators of the conference tools for their own purposes. For details, please contact directly the operators of the conference tools.

17. Our social media appearances
Data processing through social networks
We maintain publicly available profiles in social networks. The individual social networks we use can be found below.
Social networks such as Facebook, Google+ etc. can generally analyze your user behavior comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or banner ads). When you visit our social media pages, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered. In detail:
If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media page, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data may also be recorded if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies stored on your device or by recording your IP address.
Using the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which their preferences and interests are stored. This way you can see interest-based advertising inside and outside of your social media presence. If you have an account with the social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on any device you are logged in to or have logged in to.
Our social media appearances should ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on divergent legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Responsibility and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., Facebook), we, together with the operator of the social media platform, are responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can in principle protect your rights (information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data portability and complaint) vis-à-vis us as well as vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. Facebook).
Please note that despite the shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are determined by the company policy of the respective provider.
The data collected directly from us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for their storage lapses, you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular, retention periods - remain unaffected.
Individual social networks
We have a profile on Facebook. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. According to Facebook’s statement the collected data will also be transferred to the USA and to other third-party countries.
We have signed an agreement with Facebook on shared responsibility for the processing of data (Controller Addendum). This agreement determines which data processing operations we or Facebook are responsible for when you visit our Facebook Fanpage. This agreement can be viewed at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum.
We have a LinkedIn profile. The provider is the LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. LinkedIn uses advertising cookies.
18. Additional Information for Business Partners
Categories of data and purposes of processing
We process personal data of our service providers and partners, which we receive directly within the scope of our business relationship. If we have received data from you, we process it only for the purposes for which we have received or collected it.
As a rule, we process the following categories of data from you:
• Name, first name
• Adress and / or company address
• Telecommunications data
• E-mail adress
• Professional function and / or position
• Bank details / credit card number / other payment details
• Data on the history of the business relationship
In the course of the business initiation phase and during the business relationship, in particular through personal, telephone or written contacts, initiated by you or by one of our employees, further personal data is generated, e.g. information on the contact channel, date, occasion and result; (electronic) copies of correspondence and information on participation in direct marketing measures.
On the other hand, we process personal data that we have obtained and are permitted to process from publicly accessible sources (e.g. commercial and association registers, press, media, Internet).
Data processing for other purposes can only be considered if the necessary legal requirements according to Art. 6 para. 4 DSGVO are met. In this case we will of course comply with any information duties according to Art. 13 para. 3 DSGVO and Art. 14 para. 4 DSGVO.
Legal bases according to which we process your data
Based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO)
We process personal data for one or more specific purposes if you have given us permission to do so. If personal data are processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.
Data processing for the fulfilment of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO)
We process personal data for the fulfilment of contracts. The fulfillment of contracts includes, for example, the conclusion, processing and reversal of a contract. In addition, we process personal data which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as the initiation of a contract, and which are provided upon your request.
Data processing based on a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO)
Like any company, we have to comply with retention and other documentation requirements, and this may include documents containing personal information. Insofar as we process data for these purposes, the processing is based on a legal obligation.
Data processing based on a weighing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO)
If we process data on the basis of a balancing of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the provisions of Art. 21 DSGVO. Insofar as the specific purpose permits, we process your data pseudonymised or anonymised.
Other recipients of your data
Passing on to data processors in accordance to Art. 28 GDPR
Data processors commissioned by us (Art. 28 GDPR), especially in the field of IT services and, for example, printing services, who process your data for us in accordance with our instructions. If we commission service providers to perform our tasks, we always observe the provisions of data protection law; in particular, data will only be passed on after the conclusion of data processing agreements. We will be pleased to inform you which contract processors we use.
For the execution of a contractual relationship
If it is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, we will pass on your data, for example, to our bank for the processing of payments or shipping service providers, such as the German Post, DHL, UPS, GSL, DPD or other occasion-related providers.
Transfer due to a legal obligation
In the event of a legal or official obligation, we will pass on your data to public bodies or institutions (authorities, for example in the context of criminal prosecution).
Other authorities, insofar as you have given us your consent
If you have given your explicit consent, we will also pass on your data to other parties. However, this will be done within the limits of your verifiable consent.
General information on deletion periods for personal data
Principle of earmarking and compliance with statutory retention periods
We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose. If necessary, we process your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which also includes the initiation and execution of a contract.
In addition, like any company, we are obliged to comply with the statutory retention periods, for example the periods under commercial and tax law. Insofar as legal storage obligations exist, the relevant personal data is stored for the duration of the storage obligation. The duration of storage also depends on the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §§ 195 ff. of the German Civil Code (BGB), are generally three years, but in certain cases may be up to thirty years. After expiry of the obligation to retain data, it is checked whether there is any further necessity for the processing. If there is no longer a need, the data is deleted.
As a rule, such retention periods within the framework of legal transactions (according to §147 AO / §257 HGB / §14b UstG) are 10 years, beginning with the year following the legal transaction.
Insofar as you provide us with your contact details, for example by e-mail, telephone, or by handing over your business card, we store this data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO on the basis of pre-contractual measures and in the legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) of smooth and targeted communication. Insofar as no legal transaction is concluded, we will delete your data if you request us to do so or if no further contact takes place within a period of three years. If you enter into a legal transaction with us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO), we will store your data for ten years until the expiry of the commercial and tax law requirements. After this period, we will check whether we can delete the data and, if necessary, we will delete it.
E-mails and business letters
We archive all our e-mail traffic for ten years. If you send us an e-mail, your data and the entire e-mail content will be stored for 10 years. Most e-mails count as business letters; in addition, e-mails may contain information relevant to tax law. In our opinion, the effort required to check each individual e-mail is not in proportion to the benefit and the interests of the sender worthy of protection. However, you can of course request us to delete the e-mail at any time and we will check each individual case and inform you of the result. This may lead to deletion or restriction of processing, depending on the content of the correspondence.
Revocation of your consent
Insofar as we process your data on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO), we will delete them after your revocation. Unless there is a justified interest against a complete deletion. For example, we retain declarations of consent in principle for up to three years after receipt of your revocation in the legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). We keep the consent exclusively under restriction of the processing in order to be able to defend ourselves in case of dispute.
Legal or contractual obligation to provide personal data
The provision of personal data is regularly required for the initiation, conclusion, processing and reversal of a contract. In the event that you do not provide the necessary personal data, we will not be able to conclude and fulfil a contract with you.
Transfer to a third party country
Your personal data is generally processed by us in computer centres in the Federal Republic of Germany or the European Union. A transfer to a third country is only possible if you have given us your consent or if we have concluded a contract for data processing in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO, taking into account suitable guarantees or other appropriate safeguards.
