12. Use of Mapbox map material within our software “Hybrid Tower Configurator Max Bögl”

We have integrated components from Mapbox within our independent software “Hybrid Tower Configurator Max Bögl”. Mapbox is a service and hosting provider of OpenStreetMap based map material. This map material can be accessed by anyone, including those not registered with Mapbox.

This service is used on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and a contract for the processing of orders in accordance with Art. 28 para. 3 sentence 1 GDPR.

The operating company of Mapbox is Mapbox, Inc., 1714 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009-4309, USA.

By using the software operated by the data controller and on which a Mapbox component (map material) has been integrated, the software on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Mapbox component to download a representation of the corresponding Mapbox component from Mapbox. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Mapbox is informed about which specific map contents of our software are retrieved by the data subject. The purpose of the integration of the Mapbox component is to enable our users to display geographical data using maps within this software.

13. Online meetings, conference calls and webinars via “Zoom” by the Max Bögl Group

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: “Online Meetings”). “Zoom” is a service of Zoom Video Communications, Inc. which is based in the USA.


Responsible person

The person responsible for data processing directly related to the holding of “online meetings” is Max Bögl Wind AG.

Note: If you access the “Zoom” website, the provider of “Zoom” is responsible for data processing. However, it is only necessary to call up the website in order to download the software for the use of “Zoom”.

You can also use “Zoom” if you enter the respective meeting ID and, if necessary, other 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 via a browser version, which you can also find on the “Zoom” website.


Which data is processed?

Various types of data are processed when using “Zoom”. The scope of the data also depends on the information you provide before or during participation in an “online meeting”.


The following personal data are processed:

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 recordings (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of online meeting chat

When dialling in by telephone: information on incoming and outgoing telephone number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data, such as the IP address of the device, can be saved.

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 as well as from a possible video camera of your end device will be processed during 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 metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored for up to one month at “Zoom”.

Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO is not used.


Legal basis of the data processing

Insofar as personal data is processed by employees of the Max Bögl Group, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis for data processing. If, in connection with the use of “Zoom”, personal data are not required for the establishment, execution or termination of the employment relationship, but are nevertheless an elementary component in the use of “Zoom”, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 letter f) DSGVO is the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, we are interested in the effective conduct of “online meetings”.


Furthermore, the legal basis for data processing when “online meetings” are held is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO, insofar as the meetings are held within the framework of contractual relationships.


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”.


Recipient / passing on of data

Personal data processed in connection with participation in “online meetings” are generally not passed on to third parties, unless they are specifically intended to be passed on. Please note that content from “online meetings” as well as personal meetings often serves the purpose of communicating information to customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on.
Other recipients: The provider of “Zoom” necessarily obtains knowledge of the above-mentioned data, insofar as this is provided for in our contract processing agreement with “Zoom”.


Data processing outside the European Union

“Zoom” is a service 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 contract with the provider of “Zoom” which meets the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO.

An adequate level of data protection is guaranteed on the one hand by the “Privacy Shield” certification of Zoom Video Communications, Inc. but also by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contract clauses.
