8. Privacy Policy for online meetings, telephone conferences 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 conference calls, online meetings, video conferences and/or webinars (hereinafter: "online meetings"). "Zoom" is a service provided by Zoom Video Communications, Inc. which is based in the USA.

Person responsible
The responsible party for data processing directly related to the implementation of "online meetings" is BRAUNFORM GmbH.

Note: Insofar as you call up the website of "Zoom", the provider of "Zoom" is responsible for data processing. However, calling up the Internet site is only necessary to use "Zoom" in order to download the software for using "Zoom".

You can also use "Zoom" if you enter the respective meeting ID and, if applicable, further 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.

What data is processed?
Various types of data are processed when you use "Zoom". In this context, the scope of the data also depends on the data you provide before or when participating in an "online meeting".

The following personal data are subject to processing:

User details: first name, last name, telephone (optional), e-mail address, password (if "single sign-on" is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional).

Meeting metadata: Topic, description (optional), attendee IP addresses, device/hardware information.

If recording (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of online meeting chat.

For dial-in with the telephone: information on the incoming and outgoing call number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be stored.

Text, audio and video data: You may have the opportunity to use the chat, question or survey functions in an "online meeting". To this extent, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the "online meeting" and, if necessary, to log them. To enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device will be processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the "Zoom" applications.

To participate in an "online meeting" or to 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 transparently inform you in advance and - if necessary - ask for consent. The fact of the recording will also be displayed to you in the "Zoom" app.

If it is necessary for the purposes of logging the results of an "online meetings", we will log the chat content. However, this will generally not be the case.

In the case of webinars, we may also process questions asked by webinar participants for purposes of recording and following up on webinars.

If you are registered as a user with "Zoom", then reports of "online meetings" (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) may be stored by "Zoom" for up to one month.

Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO is not used.

Legal basis of data processing
Insofar as personal data of employees of BRAUNFORM GmbH are processed, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis for data processing. If, in connection with the use of "Zoom", personal data is not required for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component in the use of "Zoom", Article 6 (1) f) DSGVO is the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, our interest is in the effective implementation of "online meetings".

For the rest, the legal basis for data processing when conducting "online meetings" is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) DSGVO, insofar as the meetings are conducted in the context of contractual relationships.

Should no contractual relationship exist, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Here, too, our interest is in the effective implementation of "online meetings".

Recipients / passing on of data
Personal data processed in connection with participation in "online meetings" is generally not passed on to third parties unless it is specifically intended to be passed on. Please note that the content of "online meetings", as well as personal meetings, is often used to communicate information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on.

Other recipients: The provider of "Zoom" necessarily receives knowledge of the above-mentioned data, insofar as this is provided for in the context of our order processing agreement with "Zoom".

Data processing outside the European Union
"Zoom" is a service provided by a provider from the USA. Processing of personal data thus also takes place in a third country. We have concluded an order processing agreement with the provider of "Zoom" that complies with the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO.

An adequate level of data protection is guaranteed on the one hand by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses. As additional protective measures, we have also configured our Zoom so that only data centers in the EU, the EEA or secure third countries such as Canada or Japan are used to conduct "online meetings".
