Data protection information according to Art. 13 ff. GDPR

Meat Cracks Vertriebs GmbH, Rienshof 2, 49439 Steinfeld is responsible for the collection and processing of your personal data in connection with the use of Zoom.

Description of the data processing, purposes, and types of data
We use "Zoom" to conduct telephone conferences, online meetings, video conferences and webinars (hereinafter referred to as "online meetings").

Depending on the type and scope of use of "Zoom", different types of data are collected or processed. This includes in particular

  • Information about your person (e.g. first and last name, e-mail address, profile picture)
  • Meeting metadata (e.g. date, time and duration of communication, name of the meeting, IP address of the participant)
  • Device/hardware data (e.g. IP addresses, MAC addresses, client version)
  • Text, audio, and video data (e.g. chat histories, video, audio, and presentation recordings)
  • Connection data (e.g. telephone numbers, country names, start and end times, IP addresses)

In the following, we would like to inform you more detailed about the scope of data processing.

Required data and functions
As an employee of Meat Cracks Vertriebs GmbH, Rienshof 2, 49439 Steinfeld, you have a host account or basic account at your disposal, which you can use to organize and hold online meetings as "host". For the creation of your account or for planning and holding an online meeting, the following data will be collected and processed: Name, username, email or phone number, password (if not a single sign-on is used).

If you participate in an online meeting as an internal or external participant, you will receive an access link from the host via e-mail. When you register for the online meeting, you must then enter your name and, if applicable, your e-mail address. As a participant, you can join meetings directly from your browser without installing Zoom.

The tool also collects user data required for the provision of technical and operational support and improvements to the services provided. This includes in particular technical data about your devices, your network and your Internet connection, such as IP address, MAC address, other device IDs (UDID), device type, operating system type and version, client version, camera type, microphone or loudspeaker, type of connection.

Voluntary information and functions
You can provide further information about your person, but you do not have to. You are also free to use the chat, question, or survey functions during the online meeting. You can also turn your camera and microphone on, off, or mute.

If you use the chat, question, or survey function, the text entries you make will be processed in order to display them in the "online meeting" and to log them, if necessary. If you switch on your camera or microphone, the data from your terminal device's microphone and any video camera on the terminal device will be processed for the duration of the meeting. When you start an online meeting, your camera and microphone are turned off by default.

Please note that any information that you or others upload, post, or create during an online meeting will be processed at least for the duration of the meeting. This includes, but is not limited to, chat/instant messages, files, whiteboards, and other information shared while using the service.

Other functions
Further information on the processing of your data while using "Zoom", a detailed list of the data collected and processed by "Zoom" and the "Zoom" privacy policy can be found at:

Legal basis for data processing
If you take part in an online meeting, the processing of your data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR, insofar as your participation in the online meeting is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract (e.g. webinars). The same applies if the online meeting is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, which are carried out at your request.

If you use "Zoom" as an employee of Meat Cracks Vertriebs GmbH, Rienshof 2, 49439 Steinfeld, Germany, the data processing is based on § 26 para. 1 BDSG, if and insofar as the execution of online meetings is necessary for the purpose of the employment relationship.

Insofar as data processing in connection with the use of "Zoom" is not necessary either for the purposes of the employment relationship or for the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, it is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest here is to maintain communication independent of location, to maintain business contacts and to provide service.

If you also voluntarily provide personal information or voluntarily use functions while using the tool that are not necessary, the associated data processing is carried out on the basis of your revocable consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a, 7 in conjunction with § 26 para. 2 BDSG, if applicable. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. Please note that already before the revocation processed data is not affected.

Passing on your data
As a matter of principle, we do not transfer your data to third parties. We will only pass on your data to third parties if the data is intended to be passed on, if you have explicit consented to the transfer in advance or if we are obliged or entitled to do so by law. Please note that contents from "online meetings" as well as personal meetings often serve the purpose of communicating information with customers, interested parties or third parties and are therefore intended to be passed on.

When processing your data, Zoom Video Communications Inc. supports us as an external service provider and processor in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. As a processor, Zoom Video Communications Inc. processes your data strictly in accordance with your instructions and based on a separately concluded contract. The data processing can also take place outside the EU or the EEA without an appropriate Data protection level. Regarding Zoom Video Communications Inc. an adequate level of data protection can be assumed in accordance with Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c GDPR by using EU standard contract clauses or with the express consent of Users acc. Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Deletion of your data
We only process your data if they are necessary for the purposes for which they were collected. If the processing or storage of your data is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, the data will be stored for this period. In the case of legal storage obligations, deletion will only be considered after the expiry of the respective storage obligation.

Your rights as a data subject
In accordance with Art. 15 GDPR, you have the right to obtain information from the person responsible about the personal data relating to you and to have incorrect data corrected in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR or deleted, if one of the reasons mentioned in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued. You also have the right to restrict processing, if one of the conditions set out in Art. 18 GDPR applies and, in the cases of Art. 20 GDPR, the right to transfer data.

In cases in which we process your personal data on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f GDPR, you also have the right to object at any time for reasons arising from your situation. We will then no longer process the personal data, unless there are demonstrably compelling reasons for processing, which are worthy of protection and outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

You can assert your data protection rights here:

You also have the right to complain to a supervisory authority if you believe the processing of data is in breach of data protection regulations. In particular, the right of appeal may be lodged with a supervisory authority in the Member State in which the data subject is resident or in which the alleged breach occurred.
