We strictly adhere to the legal regulations of the Data Protection Basic Regulation and the Telemedia Act. The subject of data protection is personal data.

Collection of general information
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. However, as soon as you open our pages, information is automatically collected by us, respectively our web space operator. These are the so-called server log files, which are rather general and do not allow any conclusions (except for the IP address, see below) to be drawn about the user. Among other things, the following information is recorded:

  • Name of the website,
  • File,
  • Date,
  • amount of data,
  • Web browser and web browser version,
  • Operating system,
  • the domain name of your Internet provider,
  • the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you have reached my pages – Z. e.g. Google within a search query) and
  • the IP address

Your IP address
Without Internet Protocol addresses, or “IP addresses” for short, the Internet would – very simply put – not work. In computer networks, an IP address represents an address so that web servers and/or individual end devices can be addressed and reached via it. IP addresses are considered as personal data according to the now predominant legal opinion. We do not store the IP addresses of our visitors in the log files. Instead of the actual IP of the visitors, there is always only the number Your IP address is thus anonymised!

We use the log data without allocation to the person of the user or other profile creation according to the legal regulations only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, we reserve the right to check the log data subsequently if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence.

Personal data
Personal data is data by means of which a person can be clearly identified. This includes, for example, name, first name, address, date of birth, telephone number, but also the person’s website, etc. Only when you contact us and send us an e-mail to this effect do you provide personal data.

We collect, store or process data only for our own business purposes. Personal data will only be requested, processed and used to the extent necessary to provide the services requested by you or to make content available.

We forward the data to third parties if this is done on the basis of consent or is permitted by law in order to fulfil our contractual obligations to the users.

Contact by mail
If you send us an e-mail, your e-mail address will only be used for correspondence with you. We would expressly point out other purposes and ask for your consent. If necessary, we will forward technical questions on seminar topics by e-mail to our corresponding speakers.

Data protection information for online meetings, telephone conferences and webinars via “Zoom”, “Cisco Webex” and “Microsoft Teams”
We would like to inform you below about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of “Zoom”, “Cisco Webex” and “Microsoft Teams”.

Purpose of the processing
We use the tools “Zoom”, “Cisco Webex” and “Microsoft Teams” to conduct telephone conferences, online meetings, video conferences and/or webinars (hereinafter: “online meetings”). “Zoom” is a service of Zoom Video Communications, Inc. which has its registered office in the USA. “Webex” is a service of Cisco Systems GmbH, which is based in Germany. “Microsoft Teams” is a service of Microsoft Corp, which is also based in the USA.

Person responsible
The person responsible for data processing directly related to the implementation of “Online Meetings” is witt consulting.
Note: If you call up the website of “Zoom”, “Cisco Webex” or “Microsoft Teams”, the respective provider is responsible for data processing. However, calling up the internet page is only necessary for the use of “Zoom” in order to download the software for the use of “Zoom”. For “Microsoft Teams”, it is only necessary to download the app. For “Webex”, it is only necessary to download the software to use “Webex”.
You can also use “Zoom” and “Webex” if you enter the respective meeting ID and, if applicable, further access data for the meeting directly in the respective app. In the case of “Microsoft Teams”, you can participate in the meetings in the app via “Link”, integrated calendar in “Teams” or in the respective chats or “Teams channels”.
If you do not want to or cannot use the “Zoom”, “Teams” or “Webex” app, then the basic functions can also be used via a browser version, which you can also find on the “Zoom”, “Webex” or “Microsoft” website.

What data is processed?
When using “Microsoft Teams”, “Webex” or “Zoom”, various types of data are processed. 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), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information
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”. In this respect, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the “online meeting” and, if necessary, to record them. In order 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 are processed accordingly during the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the “Zoom”, “Webex” or “Microsoft Teams” applications.
In order 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 “Microsoft Teams”, “Webex” or “Zoom” to conduct “online meetings”.
Where it is necessary for the purposes of logging the outcomes of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will not normally be the case.
If you are registered with “Zoom” as a user, then reports of “online meetings” (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) may be stored at “Zoom” for up to one month.
If you are registered with Microsoft Teams as a user or attend a conference as a guest, online meeting reports (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data) can be stored in Teams until the end of the meeting or training activity plus one month.
If you are registered as a user at “Webex”, reports of “online meetings” (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored at “Webex” for up to one month.
The possibility of software-based “attention monitoring” (“attention tracking”) in “online meeting” tools such as “Webex” is deactivated.
Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO is not used.

Legal basis of data processing
As far as personal data of employees of the law firm Reiter und Kollegen are processed, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis of the data processing.
If, in connection with the use of “Microsoft Teams”, “Webex” or “Zoom”, personal data is not required for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component of the use of “Microsoft Teams”, “Webex” or “Zoom”, then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO is the legal basis.. Here, too, our interest is in the effective conduct of “online meetings”.

Recipients / passing on of data
Personal data processed in connection with participation in “online meetings” will not be passed on to third parties as a matter of principle, unless they are 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 “Microsoft Teams”, “Webex” or “Zoom” will necessarily receive knowledge of the above-mentioned data insofar as this is provided for in the context of our order processing agreement with “Microsoft”, “Webex” or “Zoom”.

Data processing outside the European Union
“Microsoft Teams”, “Webex” and “Zoom” are services provided by a provider from the USA. Processing of personal data therefore also takes place in a third country. We have concluded an order processing agreement with all providers that meets the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO.
An appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.

Deletion of data
We are committed to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Unless otherwise required by law, we only store your data for as long as we need it, e.g. to process a request.

Your right to information
According to § 34 and § 35 of the Federal Data Protection Act, you as a user have the right to request information at any time about what data about you is stored by us and for what purpose this storage is carried out. In addition, as a user, you have the right to correct incorrect data, revoke consent, block and delete your personal data and, in the event of the assumption of unlawful data processing, to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

Security of your data
Your personal data provided to us will be secured by taking all technical and organisational security measures to ensure that they are as inaccessible as possible to unauthorised third parties. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. When sending very sensitive data or information, it is recommended to use the postal service.

Change of our data protection regulations
We reserve the right to amend this data protection declaration from time to time so that it always meets current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your next visit. By using the website, you agree to the terms of this privacy policy. If you have any questions about this privacy policy, please contact us via our contact page.
