Storage period

Unless a more specific storage period has been stated within this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for data processing ceases to apply. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer apply.

General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website

If you have consented to data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 (2) lit. a DSGVO, if special categories of data are processed according to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO.

Information about the relevant legal basis in each individual case is provided in the following paragraphs of this privacy policy.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an already given consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in specific cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 DSGVO)

IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 ABS. 1 LIT. E OR F DSGVO, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS.

IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION UNDER ARTICLE 21(1) DSGVO).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS CONNECTED WITH SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 PARA. 2 DSGVO).

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser of
“http://” changes to “https://” and by the lock icon in your browser bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, deletion and rectification

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction or deletion of this data. For this as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time.

Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we hold about you, we will usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

4. Data collection on this website Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and version Operating system used Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Inquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data resulting from it (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after processing your request has been completed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

5. Newsletter Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter or after the purpose has ceased to exist. We reserve the right to delete or block e-mail addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own discretion within the scope of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist if necessary to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

  • Personal master data:
    Display Name (usually first and last name), email address, profile picture (if set), Microsoft-Teams-team and -tenant affiliation, Microsoft-Teams presence status Purpose: Provision of software features: user management, displaying a user in the app to other users

Purpose: Provision of software features, user administration, functions in the software such as display of an overview of ongoing conversations in the team, provision of a virtual table and kitchen conversation, error analysis, quality assurance, user support.

4. Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Teams video conference

We use Microsoft Teams in connection with our software. In Microsoft Teams, we use the Team Meetings mode. In Team Meetings, audio inputs and video recordings are prevented by our Microsoft Teams settings. In principle, there is no recording of the event by bNear.

We carry out the data processing on the basis of a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) DS- GVO. Our legitimate interest for the data processing is:
Conducting online information events to inform participants about professional topics as well as the business association and its business activities.

Microsoft Teams is part of Microsoft Office 365. Microsoft Teams is a productivity, collaboration and exchange platform for individual users, teams, communities and networks. This includes, among other things, a video conferencing function.

Microsoft Office 365 is software from the company

Microsoft Ireland Operations LimitedOne

Microsoft Place

South County Business Park Leopardstown

Dublin 18D18

P521Ireland

Microsoft Teams is part of the Office 365 cloud application, for which a user account must be created.

Data processing with Office 365 takes place on servers in data centers in the European Union in Ireland and the Netherlands. For this purpose, we have concluded a commissioned processing agreement with Microsoft in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. Accordingly, we have agreed extensive technical and organisational measures with Microsoft for Office 365 that comply with the current state of the art in IT security, e.g. with regard to access authorisation and end-to-end encryption concepts for data lines, databases and servers.

Furthermore, we have implemented the “Customer Log Box” functionality in Office 365. This means that Microsoft has no access whatsoever to our data in Office 365.

Microsoft may request access for the purpose of remote maintenance. This access will then be reviewed by us on a case-by-case basis and granted if approved. In this case, such access may also be granted by Microsoft affiliates from outside the European Union. We have concluded EU standard contracts (standard data protection clauses) with Microsoft exclusively for this case of access from outside the European Union in individual cases approved by us. In order to guarantee an appropriate level of data protection when transferring personal data to a third country such as the USA in this specific case, we have implemented supplementary measures in

the form of state-of-the-art technical and organisational measures such as access authorisation and encryption concepts for data lines, databases and servers, as described above.

Microsoft reserves the right to process customer data for its own legitimate business purposes. We have no control over these data processing activities by Microsoft. To the extent that Microsoft Teams processes personal data in connection with its legitimate business purposes, Microsoft is the independent data controller for those data processing activities and as such is responsible for compliance with all applicable data protection laws. If you require information about Microsoft’s processing, please refer to the relevant Microsoft statement.

5. Disclosure to Third-Parties

As described above, we use Microsoft for Office 365 as a processor within the meaning of Article 28 of the GDPR.

6. Data Storage
Login data and IP addresses are deleted after 180 days at the latest.

7. Your Rights

You can ask for information about which personal data we store. If you have provided personal data on the basis of a contract or consent, you are entitled to receive this data in a common and machine-readable format.

You can also request the erasure, rectification or restriction of the processing of your data. If your personal data is transferred to a country outside the EU that does not provide adequate protection, you may request a copy of the contract that provides for adequate protection of personal data. If you have given your consent for the use of your personal data, you can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.

If we use your personal data on the basis of a balance of interests, you can object to the use of your data. In this case, we will no longer use your data unless our interests prevail.

8. Contact Person

If you have any questions about our use of personal data or this privacy policy, or if you wish to exercise your rights, please contact us at any time:
