E.  WEBINARS
 

Type of processing

To conduct live webinars, we use the webinar solution of the GoToWebinar webinar software (LogMeIn). The tool is tailored precisely to the needs of conducting webinars. It allows for effective delivery of content to a larger number of participants via the Internet and helps maintain the quality of the webinars. After the webinar, we may make the presentation and additional information available to participants with a download link.

A detailed list of the categories of data collected and processed by GoToWebinar, as well as the exact purpose of processing in each case, can be found at https://www.logmein.com/de/trust/privacy.

GoToWebinar makes it possible for administrators to make extensive settings relevant to data protection. We configure the tool in such a way that only the personal data that is absolutely necessary for implementation of the webinar is processed and the collected data is protected in the best possible way. This is how we enable the most secure use that also protects private data.

An acceptable level of data protection is guaranteed by end-to-end encryption enforced by the system. This limits the transmission of data to the service provider to the data provided by the user during registration and the metadata associated with participation in the seminar. The registered user is responsible for the data he or she discloses during registration. Pseudonymous use is possible in principle. Additional information on encryption technology can be found here. All webinars are recorded in order to make the content available to participants afterwards. Audio and video functions are deactivated by default for all participants during recording. The recording processes the questions asked by online seminar participants. The recordings do not include videos or images of the participants.

The use of GoToWebinar (LogMeIn) is based on a legitimate interest in practical and user-friendly implementation of the webinar, including a good user experience for the purpose of customer acquisition and the external image of the company.
 

Data recipients

Personal data processed in connection with participation in webinars will not be passed on to third parties as a matter of principle.

Recipients are also technical service providers for registration management within the scope of order processing. In the case of GoToWebinar (LogMeIn), this is LogMeIn, Inc., 333 Summer Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02210 USA.
 

Transfer to third countries

Data processing of EU data in Switzerland cannot be ruled out. There is an adequacy decision of the EU Commission for Switzerland.

Processing also takes place in the USA. Guarantees exist in the form of concluded standard contractual clauses. The guarantee of a level of data protection that is approximately the same as within the EU is best achieved through the technical restriction of data transmission. The standard contractual clauses can be viewed under “APPENDIX 1” here: https://logmeincdn.azureedge.net/legal/20191226/DPA/LMI-Customer-Data-Processing-Addendum-2019-v2-DE-SAMPLE.pdf.


Duration of storage

Data is only collected by us in the context of the respective live session. As a rule, no recording takes place or only in the case of prior, separate consent of the participants. Recording enabled by the system via GoToWebinar is prevented for all participants. Registration data is deleted after this purpose no longer exists.  This usually takes place after a maximum storage period of 6 months in our system.


Provision prescribed or required

The provision of your personal data is voluntary. We can only offer the webinar if we can processed the associated data.
