Live online meetings and webinars with Zoom
We would like to inform you in the following about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of "Zoom".
Purpose of processing
We use the "Zoom" tool to conduct telephone conferences, online meetings, video conferences and/or webinars (hereinafter collectively referred to as online meetings).

The person responsible for data processing that is directly related to the execution of online meetings is BayStartUp GmbH.
Note: If you call up the "Zoom" website, the provider of "Zoom" is responsible for data processing. However, calling up the Internet site is only necessary for the use of "Zoom" in order to download the software for the use of "Zoom". The data protection information of Zoom can also be found here: https://zoom.us/de-de/privacy.html
You can also use "Zoom" if you enter the respective meeting ID and, if necessary, additional access data for the meeting directly in the "Zoom" app.
If you do not want to or cannot use the "Zoom" app, the basic functions can also be used with a browser version, which you can also find on the "Zoom" website.
Which data is processed?
When using "Zoom", different types of data are processed. The extent of the data also depends on the data you provide before or during participation in an online meeting
The following personal data are subject to processing:
User data: first name, last name, telephone (optional), e-mail address, password, profile picture (optional)
Meeting metadata: Topic, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information

Text, audio and video data: You may be able to use the chat, question or survey functions in an "online meeting". To this extent, the text entries you make are processed in order to display and, if necessary, log them in the "online meeting". 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 will be processed for the duration of the meeting. 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 at least provide information about your name.
Scope of processing
We use "zoom" to conduct online meetings. If we want to record online meetings, we will inform you transparently in advance and - if necessary - ask for your consent. The fact of the recording will also be displayed in the "Zoom" app.
If it is necessary for the purpose of recording the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will usually not be the case.
In the case of webinars, we can also process the questions asked by webinar participants for the purposes of recording and follow-up of webinars.
If you are registered as a user at "Zoom", reports on online meetings (meeting meta data, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored for up to one month at "Zoom".

If no contractual relationship exists, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Here too, we are interested in the effective implementation of online meetings.
Receiver / passing on of data
Personal data processed in connection with participation in online meetings is generally not passed on to third parties, unless it is specifically intended to be passed on.
