    If you participate in a video conference organized by us, you usually have to provide at least a name when registering. However, you can also use a pseudonym. Your IP address will also be processed to enable your participation and login information and device/hardware information will be stored. Your email address and profile picture will also be processed, if provided. If you dial in by phone, your phone number and IP address, if any, will be processed.

You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time. You always decide yourself whether and which parts of your screen are shared.

    If German law is not applicable to the processing of employee data or if, in connection with participation in video conferences, the processing of personal data is not necessary for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component of participation in a video conference, our overriding legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR is the legal basis for the data processing. In these cases, our legitimate interest is in the effective implementation of video conferences.
    Furthermore, the legal basis for data processing when conducting video conferences is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR, insofar as the meetings are conducted in the context of contractual relationships or with a view to initiating a contractual relationship (for example, in the case of video conferences with our clients in the context of the implementation of a project or participation in a webinar).
    Furthermore, the legal basis for data processing in the context of your participation in a video conference organized by us is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in these cases is the effective implementation of video conferences.
