This is done exclusively at your express request.

Third parties to whom we may make this data available will be bound by us by appropriate contracts and agreements to the data protection provisions set out in this section. The customer data provided by you will be deleted at the latest 2 months after the completion of the relevant further training measure, both from us and from any third parties commissioned.

You can revoke the consent given to us for the processing of your personal data, including for offers from third parties, at any time. You can declare the revocation or objection by sending an e-mail to our e-mail address specified in the imprint.

Use ZOOM as a tool for online training

For certain forms of online education, we use the Zoom tool. When using Zoom, different types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on what information you provide before or when participating in an "online meeting".

-The following personal data are the subject of the processing:

User details: First name, Last name, Phone [optional], Email address, Password [if Single-Sign-On is not used], Profile picture [optional], Department [optional]
 Meeting metadata: Topic, description [optional], subscriber 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 phone: Information about the incoming and outgoing phone numbers, country name, start and end time. If necessary, additional 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 whiteboard, chat, question, or survey 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.
In order to allow video to be displayed and audio to be played back, the data is processed accordingly during the meeting by the microphone of your terminal and by any video camera of the terminal. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the "Zoom" applications.
In order to participate in an "online meeting" or to enter the "meeting room", you must provide at least your name.

-Scope of data processing:

We use "Zoom" to conduct "Online Meetings". If we want to record "online meetings", we will notify you in a transparent manner in advance and, if necessary, ask for your consent. The fact of the recording is also shown in the "Zoom" app.
If necessary for the purposes of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will not be the case as a rule. In any case, before logging the chat content, we would ask for the consent of the participants.

In the case of webinars, we may also process the questions asked by webinars participants for the purposes of recording and follow-up to webinars. In any case, we would ask for the consent of the participants before any recording of the questions asked.
If you are registered with Zoom as a user, reports about Online Meetings [meeting metadata, dial-in phone data, questions and answers in webinars, survey functionality in webinars] can be saved to Zoom for up to one month.
Automated decision-making in accordance with Art. 22 GDPR is not used.

-Legal basis of data processing:

Insofar as personal data are processed by employees of SEO Crossing Cultures, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis for data processing. If personal data in connection with the use of "Zoom" is not necessary for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary part of the use of "Zoom", Art. 6 para. 1 lit. F) GDPR the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, we are interested in the effective conduct of "online meetings".

In addition, the legal basis for data processing when conducting "online meetings" is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. B) GDPR, insofar as the meetings are carried out within the framework of contractual relationships.
If there is no contractual relationship, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. F) GDPR. Here, too, we are interested in the effective conduct of "online meetings".

-Recipient/transfer of data:

Personal data processed in connection with participation in "online meetings" will 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 in face-to-face meetings is often used to communicate information with customers, prospects or third parties and is therefore intended for dissemination.
Other recipients: The provider of "Zoom" necessarily receives knowledge of the above Data, insofar as this is provided for in our order processing contract with "Zoom".

-Data processing outside the European Union:

"Zoom" is a service provided by a provider from the United States. The processing of personal data thus also takes place in a third country. We have concluded a data processing agreement with the provider of "Zoom" that meets the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR.

An appropriate level of data protection is achieved on the one hand by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses guaranteed. As a supplementary protection measure, we have also made our zoom configuration so that only data centers in the EU are used for conducting "online meetings".

You can revoke the consent given to us for the processing of your personal data, including for offers from third parties, at any time. You can declare the revocation or objection by sending an e-mail to our e-mail address specified in the imprint. The customer data provided by you will be deleted at the latest 2 months after the completion of the relevant further training measure, both from us and from any third parties commissioned.
