a) Scope

As a matter of principle, we process your personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functioning website as well as our content and services.

We process your personal data only on the basis of your consent. An exception applies in those cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for objective reasons and the processing of your personal data is permitted by legal regulations.

b) Legal basis

Where we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that are required to fulfil a contract with you, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that your vital interests or those of another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing of your personal data is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or those of a third party, and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the aforesaid interests, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

c) Storage period

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for their storage no longer applies. Storage may moreover take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which we are subject. In this case, your personal data will be blocked. Data will also be blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue to store the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

 

a) Provision and creation of log files

Each instance of access to the KoWi website is stored in a log file for a limited time with the following data:

  • Date and time of the visit
  • Request details and destination address
  • Name of the retrieved file and amount of data transferred
  • Notification as to whether the retrieval was successful

Data on the use of the website are stored for analytical purposes, which in turn serve the purpose of optimising the website. KoWi evaluates visitor data solely for statistical purposes. The usage data are stored exclusively in anonymised form. No IP addresses of the user or other data are stored which could enable the data to be assigned to a user.

This website uses the etracker web analytics service. There is a data processing contract between etracker GmbH, Hamburg, Germany, and KoWi. The etracker data protection signet indicates extended data protection compliance.

The data generated with etracker are processed and stored by etracker on behalf of the provider of this website exclusively in Germany and are therefore subject to strict German and European data protection laws and standards. etracker has been independently audited, certified and awarded the ePrivacyseal data protection seal of approval in this regard. You can find further information on data protection at etracker here.

Purpose: This data storage is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to your computer.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest).

Objection: The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Objection is therefore not possible.

b) Technically necessary cookies

Cookies are used when you register for certain services (e.g. newsletter). These are not permanent cookies, which are stored as a text file on the hard drive of your computer.

Instead, a session cookie with a randomly generated session ID is written into the main memory of your computer. As soon as you close the browser window or call up another page, the session is deemed to have ended; the session cookie is then deleted.

Session cookies are used in our registration procedures only if the registration form comprises more than one page and the data already entered must be temporarily stored.
Permanent cookies are small text files, which are stored by the Internet browser on the user's terminal device.

By using the cookie of the Usercentrics Consent Management Platform (Usercentrics GmbH, Munich), your privacy settings as set in the consent banner can be saved beyond the current browser session.
Etracker also uses cookies for the statistical analysis of the use of this website. Etracker cookies do not contain any information that would enable the identification of a user.

Purpose: Without the use of cookies, these functions cannot be offered on our website.

The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest).

Objection: By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all its functions to their full extent.

c) YouTube

For the integration of videos, our site uses the provider YouTube. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC with its main headquarters at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is represented by Google Inc. with headquarters at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

YouTube videos are integrated in extended data protection mode. No information about visitors to the website is stored by YouTube unless they watch the video. When you click on the video, your IP address will be transmitted to YouTube. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information will also be assigned to your user account. If you do not wish this to happen, log out of YouTube before watching the video.

Objection: The processing of your personal data in the context of the integration of YouTube videos is required as soon as you click on the video. Objection is therefore not possible.

d) Twitter

Twitter components are integrated into our website. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service on which tweets, i.e. short messages, can be published and distributed. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, including people who are not registered with Twitter. However, the tweets are also displayed to the followers of the user in question. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user's Tweets. Furthermore, Twitter makes it possible to address a broad audience via hashtags, links or retweets.

The operating company of Twitter is Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

The following personal data are processed as a result of the use:

  • Browser type
  • Date and time of the Tweet
  • Internet address under which the Tweet button is located
  • IP address
  • Information about the operating system

By calling up our homepage, you can give your consent via the consent banner to the internet browser of your device to activate the display of the Twitter plugin, and, as a result, data may be transmitted to Twitter. Twitter will then become aware of the page you are currently visiting.

If you are logged in to Twitter at the same time, Twitter will recognise the specific page you are visiting. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned by Twitter to the Twitter account of the person concerned. If you click on one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted will be assigned to your personal Twitter user account and stored and processed by Twitter. If you do not want this to happen, log out of Twitter in advance.

The applicable privacy policy of Twitter is available at https://twitter.com/en/privacy.

Purpose: The display of our content on Twitter and the ability to redistribute that content

For this purpose, we have embedded a so-called Anchor widget on our website, which enables audio content to be played (“anchor player”).

The data will in any case be kept until the end of the event, its follow-up or until consent is revoked. These data will be passed on to third parties (e.g. co-organisers, list of participants) only with your express consent.

Objection: You can revoke your registration or ask for the stored data to be changed at any time. Insofar as to do so is not prevented by contractual or legal obligations, your data will be deleted promptly upon revocation. However, participation in the event will then no longer be possible.

b) Online meetings

In order to carry out online seminars and video conferences (hereinafter: online meetings) we use Zoom. Zoom is a service of Zoom Video Communications, Inc, USA (https://zoom.us).

The scope of the data processed in the context of using Zoom depends in part on the information you yourself provide before or when participating in the online meeting. You can therefore decide as a participant whether you want to take part in the chat or share your microphone or camera. However, you must at least provide your name.

The following personal data may be processed:

  • Participant data: First name, last name, e-mail address, organisation, password (if "Single-Sign-On" is not used), profile picture (optional)
  • Text, audio and video data (if you share the camera or microphone or use the chat/question/survey function); for follow-up purposes, we may also process questions asked in the chat.
  • Meeting metadata (topic, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information, start, end and duration of the meeting)
  • For telephone dial-in: Information on the incoming and outgoing call number, country name, start and end time, further connection data if necessary
  • For recordings (optional) Mp4 of all video and audio recordings and presentations, M4A of all audio recordings, text file of all in the meeting, chats, audio transcript file; if, in exceptional circumstances, we wish to record an online meeting, we will tell you in advance and ask for your consent. The Zoom app will also tell you if a meeting is being recorded.

Purpose: Organisation, implementation and follow-up of online meetings. Any other use of your data for other purposes is excluded.

Legal basis: Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest), for chargeable events Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR (contractual basis) or Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR (consent of the user) for all voluntary details

Storage period and disclosure of data: Your personal data will be deleted or blocked by us as soon as the purpose of storage and processing no longer applies, provided that there is no legal obligation to store them for a longer period.
If you are logged in with a Zoom account, online meeting reports (meeting metadata, phone dial-in data, questions and answers, survey function) can be stored by Zoom for up to one month.
Personal data processed in connection with participation in online meetings will as a matter of principle not be passed on to third parties. The provider of Zoom necessarily acquires knowledge of the above-mentioned data insofar as this is provided for in the context of our data processing contract with Zoom.

Objection: You can revoke the processing of your data at any time with effect for the future. Insofar as to do so is not prevented by contractual or legal obligations, your data will be deleted promptly upon revocation. However, participation in the event will then no longer be possible.

Data processing outside the European Union: Zoom is a service offered by a provider from the USA. It is not yet possible to configure Zoom so that all the above data are processed exclusively in data centres within the EU / EEA. The meeting metadata listed above will continue to be processed in data centres in the USA. The transfer of this data to the USA takes place on the basis of a data processing contract which we have concluded with Zoom and which complies with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR.  

An adequate level of data protection is guaranteed, on the one hand, by the conclusion of the EU standard contractual clauses (SCC). As additional safeguards, we have also configured our Zoom to only use data centres in the EU, EEA or secure third countries such as Canada or Japan for the conduct of online meetings.

Further information on data processing when using Zoom can be found at https://zoom.us/privacy/ and https://zoom.us/privacy/#_Toc44414848. Please note that this is an external website operated by Zoom Video Communications, Inc. under its own responsibility and that personal data are processed when you visit it.
