6. Data protection policy for online meetings, conference calls and webinars via "Zoom"

We would like to inform you in the following about how personal data is processed in conjunction with the use of "Zoom".

6.1 Purpose of processing

We use the tool "Zoom" to carry out conference calls, online meetings, video conferences, initial conversations for selecting applicants and/or webinars (hereinafter: "online meetings"). "Zoom" is a service of Zoom Video Communications, Inc., which is headquartered in the United States of America (USA).

6.2 Controller

The controller for data processing that is directly associated with the execution of "online meetings" is REA Card.

Please note: Insofar as you call up the Internet site of "Zoom", the provider of "Zoom" is responsible for the data processing. For "Zoom" to be used, however, the Internet site only needs to be called up to download the software for using "Zoom".

You can also use "Zoom" if you enter the respective meeting ID and, where appropriate, additional access data for the meeting, directly in the "Zoom" app.

If you do not want to or cannot use the "Zoom" app, then the basic functions can also be used through a browser version, which you can also find on the website of "Zoom".

6.3 What data is processed?

When "Zoom" is used, various data types are processed. The scope of data depends on the specifications you make regarding data before and/or while participating in an "online meeting".

The following personal data is the subject matter of the processing:

  • Information about the user: First name, last name, phone number (optional), email address, password (if "Single Sign-On" is not used), profile image (optional),
  • department (optional)
  • Meeting metadata: Subject, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information
  • For dialing in by phone: Information about inbound and outbound phone number, country name, start and end time. Where appropriate, additional connection data, such as the IP address of the device, can be stored.
  • Text, audio and video data: You may have the option of using the chat, Q&A and polling features during an online meeting. In this respect, the text that you input will be processed to be displayed in the "online meeting" and, where appropriate, to be recorded. To enable video and audio to be played, the data from the microphone and any video camera of your terminal device will be processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the "Zoom" applications.

To participate in an "online meeting" or enter the "meeting room", you have to at least provide information about your name.

6.4 Scope of processing

We use "Zoom" to hold "online meetings".

If you are a registered user of "Zoom", then reports about "online meetings" (meeting metadata, data about dial-ins, questions and answers in webinars, polling features in webinars) can be stored at "Zoom" for up to one month.

Automated decision making as defined by Art. 22 GDPR will not be used.

6.5 Legal bases for data processing

Insofar as personal data of applicants is processed, the legal basis for the data processing is the consent given by the data subject. The withdrawal of consent shall be possible at any time and shall be directed to datenschutzwiderruf(at)

Insofar as the personal data of REA Card employees is processed, § 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) is the legal basis for the data processing. If personal data is not required for establishing, carrying out or terminating the employment relationship in conjunction with the use of "Zoom", yet it is an elementary component for the use of "Zoom", then Art. 6 1. (f) GDPR is the legal basis for the data processing. In these cases, our interest lies in the effective execution of "online meetings".

Otherwise the legal basis for data processing for execution of "online meetings" is Art. 6 1. (b) GDPR, provided that the meetings are carried out within the framework of contractual relationships.

If no contractual relationship exists, the legal basis is Art. 6 1. (f) GDPR. Here too, our interest lies in holding "online meetings" effectively.

6.6 Recipients / forwarding data

Personal data that is processed in conjunction with participation in "online meetings" is never forwarded to third parties, insofar as it has not been specifically designated for forwarding. Please note that contents from "online meetings" as well as personal meetings are frequently intended specifically for communicating information to customers, prospects or third parties and thus are designated for forwarding.

Further recipients: The provider of "Zoom" must receive notice of the abovementioned data insofar as this is provided for within the framework of our data processing agreement with "Zoom".

6.7 Data processing outside of the European Union and the associated restriction rights of data subjects

"Zoom" is a service rendered by a provider from the USA. Consequently, processing of personal data also occurs in a non-EU country. We have made a data processing agreement with the provider of "Zoom" that corresponds to the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR.

Please note that your rights as a data subject from number 6 of this privacy policy can be restricted by Zoom in case of use. Where a legitimate interest exists, the legal situation in the USA allows the US authorities to gain insight into the data of a data processor at any time as well as to demand that it be surrendered.

7. Google Maps
This website uses the Google Maps API, a map service of Google Inc. "("Google"), to display an interactive map. By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. 

Google may transfer the information obtained through Maps to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible for Google to identify at least individual users on the basis of the data received. It is possible that personal data and personality profiles of users of the Google website could be processed for other purposes over which we have and cannot influence. This and the fact that data is transmitted to the USA is problematic for data protection reasons.

You can easily deactivate the Google Maps service to prevent data transfer to Google: To do this, deactivate JavaScript in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use the map.

By using this website and by not deactivating the JavaScript function, you explicitly declare that you are aware of the data protection problems and that you agree to the processing of data collected about you by Google in the manner and for the purpose described above.
