The same applies in the event of the (even partial) purchase or sale of business and/or assets, in the event of any other takeover of our business by a third party, in the event of the opening of insolvency proceedings, or if the opening is rejected for lack of assets (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

After you have revoked any consent to data processing and/or declared your objection to it, we will place you on our so-called block list. This means that we will no longer use your personal data for marketing purposes and will no longer share it. We will then only store your data for legal purposes (e.g. obligations to provide evidence, defense against and assertion of claims, etc.) and will delete it after a further period of four years, unless there are compelling reasons not to do so or if other reasons permit corresponding data processing, for example by way of renewed consent.

7. Use of Microsoft Teams
We use the Microsoft Teams tool (hereinafter: “MS Teams”) to conduct conference calls, online meetings, video conferences, and/or webinars (hereinafter: “Online Meetings”). MS Teams is a service of Microsoft Ireland Operations Limited, One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland.
a) What data is processed by you
When using MS Teams, different types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the information you provide before or during participation in an online meeting.
The following personal data is subject to processing:
User details: first name, last name, phone (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.
For recordings (optional): Video, audio, and presentation recordings, a text file of the online meeting chat.
When dialing in with the telephone: information on the incoming and outgoing call number, country, 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 option to use the chat, question, or poll features in an online meeting. In this respect, 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 as well as from any video camera of the terminal device are processed accordingly during the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the MS Teams applications.
To join an online meeting or enter the meeting room, you must at least provide information about your name.
b) Scope of the processing
We use MS Teams to conduct online meetings. If we want to record online meetings, we will transparently tell you in advance and – if necessary – ask for consent. The fact of recording is also displayed to you in the “MS Teams” app.
If necessary for the purposes of logging the 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 may also process questions asked by webinar participants for the purposes of recording and following up webinars.
If you are registered as a user with MS Teams, then reports of online meetings (meeting metadata, phone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, polling function in webinars) can be stored in MS Teams for up to one month.
Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 GDPR is not used.
c) Legal bases of data processing
The legal basis for data processing when conducting online meetings is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as the meetings are conducted in the context of contractual relationships.
Furthermore, your consent is the legal basis for the processing according to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.
d) Recipient/passing on of data
Personal data processed in connection with participation in online meetings will not be disclosed to third parties as a matter of principle unless they are specifically intended to be disclosed. Please note that content from online meetings, as well as in-person meeting content, is often intended precisely to communicate information with customers, prospects, or third parties, and is therefore intended to be shared.
Other recipients: The provider of “MS Teams” necessarily obtains knowledge of the above-mentioned data, insofar as this is provided for in the context of our order processing agreement with “MS Teams”.
e) Data processing outside the European Union
MS Teams is a service provided by a vendor headquartered in the United States. Processing of personal data thus also takes place in a third country, i.e. a country outside the European Union (EU) or the contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider of MS Teams that complies with the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO.
In addition, MS Teams is obligated by the conclusion of so-called EU standard contractual clauses to comply with a level of data protection that essentially corresponds to the European level.
f) Your rights as a data subject
g) Deleting data
We generally delete personal data when there is no need for further storage. A requirement may exist in particular if the data is still needed to fulfill contractual services or to be able to check and grant or ward off warranty and possibly guarantee claims. In the case of statutory retention obligations, deletion is only considered after the expiry of the respective retention obligation.
h) Right of appeal
You have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of personal data by us with the supervisory authority for data protection indicated above under Item 5.
