ONLINE MEETINGS AND WEBINARS VIA “ZOOM”

We would like to inform you below about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of “Zoom”.

PURPOSE OF PROCESSING

We use the "Zoom" tool to conduct telephone conferences, online meetings, video conferences and/or webinars (hereinafter: "online meetings"). "Zoom" is a service of Zoom Video Communications, Inc., which is based in the United States.

RESPONSIBLE

The person responsible for data processing that is directly related to the implementation of “online meetings” is Last Generation.
Note: If you access the “Zoom” website, the “Zoom” provider is responsible for data processing. However, to use “Zoom”, you only need to visit the website to download the software for using “Zoom”.
You can also use “Zoom” if you enter the respective meeting ID and, if necessary, other access data for the meeting directly in the “Zoom” app.
If you do not want to or cannot use the “Zoom” app, the basic functions can also be used via a browser version, which you can also find on the “Zoom” website.

WHICH DATA WILL BE PROCESSED?

When using “Zoom” different types of data are processed. The extent of the data also depends on what data information you provide before or when participating in an “online meeting”.
The following personal data are subject to processing:
User information: First name, last name, telephone (optional), email address, password (if single sign-on is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional)
Meeting metadata: topic, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information
For recordings (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of the online meeting chat.
When dialing in with the telephone: information about the incoming and outgoing phone number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, additional connection data such as the IP address of the device can be saved.
Text, audio and video data: You may have the opportunity to use the chat, question or survey functions in an “online meeting”. In this respect, the text entries you make will be processed in order to display them in the “online meeting” and, if necessary, to record them. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your device and any video camera on the device will be processed for the duration of the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone at any time using the “Zoom” applications.
In order to take part in an “online meeting” or enter the “meeting room”, you must at least provide information about your name.

SCOPE OF PROCESSING

We use “Zoom” to conduct “online meetings”. If we want to record “online meetings”, we will inform you transparently in advance and – if necessary – ask for your consent. The fact of the recording will also be displayed to you in the “Zoom” app.
If necessary for the purposes of logging results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will usually not be the case.
In the case of webinars, we can also process the questions asked by webinar participants for the purpose of recording and following up on webinars.
If you are registered as a user with “Zoom”, then reports about “online meetings” (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored with “Zoom” for up to 12 months.
Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 GDPR is not used.

LEGAL BASIS OF DATA PROCESSING

As far as personal data of members of the last generation is processed, Section 26 BDSG is the legal basis for data processing. If, in connection with the use of “Zoom”, personal data is not necessary for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary part of the use of “Zoom”, then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, our interest is in the effective implementation of “online meetings”.
Otherwise, the legal basis for data processing when conducting "online meetings" is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, insofar as the meetings are held within the framework of contractual relationships.
If there is no contractual relationship, the legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. Here, too, we are interested in the effective implementation of "online meetings".

RECIPIENTS / DISCLOSURE OF DATA

Personal data processed in connection with participation in “online meetings” will generally not be passed on to third parties unless they are specifically intended to be passed on. Please note that content from “online meetings” as well as personal meetings are often used to communicate information with customers, interested parties or third parties and are therefore intended to be passed on.
Other recipients: The provider of "Zoom" necessarily receives knowledge of the above data, insofar as this is provided for in the context of our order processing contract with "Zoom".

DATA PROCESSING OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION

"Zoom" is a service provided by a provider based in the United States. Processing of the personal data also takes place in a third country. We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider of "Zoom", which meets the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO.
An appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed through the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.
