For security reasons, we store this information in log files, but without your IP address, and delete it after 30 days. The data in the log files is stored separately from other data about you.
Longer storage is only necessary in individual cases (e.g. in the event of suspected abuse or fraud). In these cases, the respective log files are stored until the facts of the case have been clarified and subsequent, necessary measures have been completed.

In order to be able to provide you with our website and the services provided via it, we use service providers who process your data specified in this data protection declaration exclusively on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions (so-called order processors in accordance with Article 28 GDPR) and who have taken suitable technical and organisational measures to protect your rights.

For this country, there is no adequacy decision by the EU Commission to ensure that a level of data protection equivalent to the European standard exists there. According to the European Court of Justice (ECJ), there is a particular risk that data will be processed unnoticed by US authorities for surveillance purposes. To establish the secure level of data protection, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider.

In order to use the functions of Google Maps, information, including the IP address as well as the address, which is entered within the scope of the route function, can be transmitted to the provider's servers. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. When you visit a website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Google's servers, whereby the map content is sent to your browser and integrated by it. We have no influence on this data transmission.

According to current knowledge, this includes the following data:
- Date and time of the visit to the website in question,
- Internet address or URL of the website called up,
- IP address, (start) address entered as part of route planning.
Google Maps is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and to make it easy to find the places we have indicated on the website.

Please note that in this case the interactive map function of Google Maps cannot be used.

If you have not given your consent within the framework of the Consent Manager, you have the option of giving it subsequently within the framework of the so-called "2-click procedure".

In this case, Google will set cookies and use your visit data for its own purposes. If you are logged in to Google at this time, the information about the videos you have viewed will be assigned to your member account with Google.

The IP address and other data are not transmitted to Google.

a. JENTIS
Without the use of cookies, we use the analysis tool JENTIS from JENTIS GmbH, Schönbrunner Straße 231, 1120 Vienna. Actions of visitors to our website are recorded for analysis purposes and processed for statistical evaluations. The ID set by JENTIS is only used for temporary recognition and does not allow us or JENTIS to assign a specific or identifiable person. Your IP address is shortened before it is stored so that it is no longer personally identifiable. If personal data is processed when using JENTIS, the processing is based on an overriding interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the ongoing optimisation of our website based on the knowledge gained about the use of the site. Please click here if you do not wish JENTIS to process your data: Objection to the use of JENTIS

b. Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
On this website we use the web analysis service Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The responsible party for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse how visitors use our website. Google, as our processor in accordance with Article 28 GDPR, provides us with reports for this purpose, which we can use to display and evaluate the activities on our website. For this purpose, a Google Analytics cookie is stored on the device with which you visit our website. By calling up individual pages of this website, the Internet browser on your device is automatically prompted by the Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data about you, in particular information about the browser type/version, operating system used, the page you previously visited, the host name of the accessing device, IP address and the time of the request, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks. However, this data is not merged with any other data about you. In addition, we use the function whereby the IP address of your internet connection is automatically shortened by Google and thus anonymised if access to our website is from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

There is a risk that your data will be processed and transferred to the USA, i.e. a third country outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA). For this country, there is no adequacy decision by the EU Commission to ensure that a level of data protection equivalent to the European standard exists there. According to the European Court of Justice (ECJ), there is a particular risk that data may be processed unnoticed by US authorities for surveillance purposes.

If data is transferred outside the EEA, where there may not be a standard comparable to the European level of data protection, this is done on the basis of appropriate guarantees in accordance with Articles 44 to 49 of the GDPR.

II. Data processing in the context of events

After your registration for an event, we may pass on your company and position (without giving your name) to participants and partners in order to give them the opportunity to invite you to future events through us. The potential sponsor will not receive your name. If the transmitted data is not anonymised due to the combination of company and position, the transmission is based on Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter f) GDPR. As the core objective of such a conference, the bringing together of business contacts is in the common interest and the disclosure of company and position is minimally invasive of personal interests. Your other data will remain with us.

If you apply for a (Digital) Masterclass (at our festival), we will provide the speakers with your company and position details for the purpose of participant selection as described in the GTC. For further exchanges following the (Digital) Masterclass, the organising company receives the first name, surname, email address, company and position of the participants registered for the respective (Digital) Masterclass.
The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter b) GDPR.

At the OMR Festival, you have the option at the exhibition stands to have your visitor badge scanned in order to leave contact details, which should enable the respective exhibitor or sub-exhibitor represented there to contact you. In this case, we will transmit the following data from you to the exhibitor (or sub-exhibitor): Name, company, e-mail address. The transmission is based on an overriding interest in the form of a simplified exchange of contact data at the festival (Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter f) GDPR). If you do not agree to this, please let us know briefly at the respective exhibition stand.

Photos and videos are taken at our events, which may be published in print, digital and online publications and via social media channels. The data processing is based on an overriding interest in public relations (Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter f) GDPR). If you do not agree with this, please briefly inform our photographers in the specific situation.

Your data processed for the purpose of holding the event will be deleted 365 days after the end of the event. This does not apply to data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law. We store this data on the basis of Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter c) of the General Data Protection Regulation and delete it when the statutory retention period expires.

OMR Deep Dive
In order to be able to carry out the OMR Deep Dive via the Internet, we rely on the software solution of Digital Samba (Digital Samba S.L., Aribau 15, 08011 Barcelona, Spain).

In doing so, we process your name and address and contact data, as well as contract data and the payment data you have provided (e.g. account data). The legal basis for this is to fulfil the existing contract between us or to be able to carry out pre-contractual measures (Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter b) GDPR). The legal basis for free webinars is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in conducting a technically flawless webinar.

OMR Education Webinars
To deliver the OMR Education webinars, we use "Webinarjam" (Genesis Digital LLC, 4730 S. Fort Apache Rd. Suite 300, Las Vegas, NV 89147-7947, USA).
By subscribing to the OMR Education newsletter, you will in return receive the opportunity to register for our free webinars and receive news about the OMR Academy. This requires your consent to the processing of your data (name and email address), by OMR.

There is a risk that your data will be processed and transferred to the USA, i.e. a third country outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA). For this country, there is no adequacy decision by the EU Commission to ensure that a level of data protection equivalent to the European standard exists there. According to the European Court of Justice (ECJ), there is a particular risk that data may be processed unnoticed by US authorities for surveillance purposes. The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent pursuant to Article 49(1) sentence 1 letter a) GDPR. This can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR. You have the option to revoke your consent for the newsletter at any time for the future by sending an email to education@omr.com or by clicking on the link to cancel, which can be found in every newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the webinar at any time.

III. Data processing in our e-learning courses

Courses / Booking & Processing

Seminar booking
To book our events, we use an external service provider to which you are automatically redirected during the booking process. The service provider collects your customer and participant data on our behalf and, in the case of online payment, your credit card or bank details. Our service provider in turn uses further order processors who have been appropriately obligated by him to comply with data protection.

If you book a course as a private individual, in accordance with the guidelines for distance learning online, there is no complete booking process, only your registration. We will then provide you with a distance learning contract, a signed copy of which must be returned to us in order to complete your booking.
All service providers involved in processing your credit card or bank details are subject to European banking supervision or the relevant national supervisory authority in an EU country. Your credit card or bank details are processed directly by the audited financial service providers. Our booking service provider and we only receive feedback on the success of the payment transaction, but do not know the details of your payment method.

Data categories: Contact details, booked event (theme and date), credit card/bank connection details, payment status.

Data recipient (if applicable, third country transfer): Booking service providers who are bound to us to observe data protection via a contract for commissioned processing according to Art. 28 GDPR, as well as payment service providers used by the booking service provider and other commissioned processors who are in turn bound via contracts according to Art. 28 GDPR. Our service provider is located in the EU, so that a third country transfer does not take place. Those further processors of our service provider who also process data outside the EEA have assured an adequate level of data protection at the place of processing by concluding EU standard data protection clauses.

Purpose + legal basis: Online booking of our trainings. The legal basis for the booking and payment process is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The preparation or fulfilment of the training contract with us.

Storage period: We store the data of your booking for six years in accordance with the regulations in commercial law for the storage of business letters or ten years in accordance with the storage periods under tax law.

Customer database (online CRM HubSpot)
We maintain your data in our customer database in the sense of a Customer Relation Management (CRM). We use HubSpot's powerful cloud technology for this purpose, which allows us to process your contract and invoice data as well as send you invitations to the events you have booked. Via the CRM, we control the business communication with you and document the history of your customer relationship with us.

Your registration for our newsletters and marketing information is also managed in our CRM. Access to your personal customer accounts in our separate training applications is also controlled from the CRM.
We provide some of our websites directly via HubSpot as a hosting service provider. See also the processing "Analysis of user behaviour (HubSpot)".

Data categories: Registration data (name, email address, password), contact data (telephone number, address), orders (goods/services, payment and delivery conditions, invoices), date of birth/age, activity history, marketing consents.

Data recipients (third country transfer if applicable): HubSpot Inc, USA, EU contact: One Dockland Central, Dublin 1, Ireland. HubSpot is obligated to us to observe data protection via a contract for commissioned processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. HubSpot has concluded standard data protection clauses with us for data transfer to the USA and thus guarantees that the data is handled at EU data protection level.

Purpose + legal basis: Use of a high-performance CRM system as a cloud solution that enables us to provide holistic support to our customers from acquisition to billing. Legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The preparation or fulfilment of the training contract with us.

Storage period: We store your customer account for up to six years after the conclusion of the last customer contact. In this respect, we comply with the retention obligation for business letters under commercial law. We store your account for longer if you continue to subscribe to our newsletter. If you cancel your newsletter subscription at a later date, your data will be deleted immediately.

Online trainings
Our product is training courses that are largely held as online training courses (webinars). For this purpose, we work with various e-learning platforms that are hosted for us by cloud service providers. We create customer accounts for you on these platforms and send you the access data. The courses you book are posted to the customer accounts. Your training progress is also documented here.

You are free to add a photo or icon image to your user account in our learning platform. Your name will be visible to all other participants in the same training.
In the context of group work, which is an integral part of many of our training concepts, we make your email address available to the other participants. This sharing is intended to enable participants to exchange information about the learning content outside of the webinars, as this type of cooperation is the only way to achieve the level of quality we strive for in our training courses.

During the webinars, you can participate in the event in different ways (chat, audio, video). Some of our webinars are recorded so that they can be made available for subsequent viewing. You will be informed of this at the latest at the beginning of the respective course.

In some cases, you will receive notifications (e.g. reminders) about your courses by e-mail, which are sent automatically by our eLearning platform.
Participation in the webinars takes place via your internet browser (see the processing operations "Visiting our web pages").
For some of our events, you can also access them via our app for mobile devices (see the processing operations "Using our apps").

Accompanying course material is also available via our eLearning platform, which is made available via an external hosting provider (a so-called Content Delivery Network, CDN) in the interests of technically optimal provision. The CDN is a US company and provides the data from data centres in the USA. The CDN does not receive any data that you actively provide as part of your participation, only your IP address and the typical weblog data that is generated when a server is called up via the Internet.

Data categories: Name, email address, password (encrypted and not readable by us), photo, booked courses and training progress (activity history), audio and film recordings or text comments (in the case of your own activity in the webinar), weblog data (IP address, time stamp, type and version of browser used).

Data recipients (third country transfer if applicable): Our cloud service providers for eLearning platforms in cooperation with a content delivery network, who are bound to data protection via an order processing agreement. The third-country transfers that take place in the process are secured via the conclusion of EU standard data protection clauses.

Purpose + legal basis: Use of an eLearning system as a cloud solution that enables us to provide powerful infrastructure for our webinars. The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The fulfilment of the training contract with us. The legal basis for publishing your name and passing on your email address to other participants is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR. There is a legitimate interest in this, as an exchange between the participants in accordance with our interactive training concept is not possible in any other way.

Storage period: We store your account in the eLearning platform for up to two years after the last contact with you. In this respect, we thereby fulfil the retention obligation for business letters from commercial law and want to make it possible to send you duplicates of your training confirmations even some time after completion of the course.

External lecturers
Many of the experts who teach the webinars in our online training courses are not employed by us but are external service providers. The lecturers are given access to your personal data within the scope of the webinar, as it is visible in the eLearning platform. In addition, the lecturers have insight into the results of examinations that you have taken. The lecturers are contractually obliged by us to maintain confidentiality. They are not allowed to export your data from the eLearning platform or use your data in any way for purposes other than the delivery of the training.

Data categories: Name, email address, photo, booked courses and training progress as well as examination results, audio and film recordings or text comments (for own activity in the webinar).

Data recipients (if applicable, third country transfer): External lecturers in the online training courses. A third country transfer does not take place.

Purpose + legal basis: Involvement of external experts as lecturers for the online trainings. The legal basis for the disclosure of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR. There is a legitimate interest in this, as the lecturers have access to the personal data solely via the eLearning platform and are bound to confidentiality via their service provider contract.

Storage period: There is no independent storage, as the lecturers only access the data in the eLearning platform.

Test access partner software
Many of our courses involve the participants themselves implementing the measures recommended in the course in the relevant applications. Practical experience as an elementary part of the training. The vast majority of modern applications are cloud applications, also called software-as-a-service, which run entirely under the technical sovereignty of the respective provider.
We receive test accounts for our course participants from the providers with whom we cooperate in this respect. In order to set up the test accounts, we have to pass on names and email addresses to the providers. The providers have been obliged by us not to use the data for their own purposes.

Data categories: Name, email address, course booked

Data recipient (third country transfer if applicable): The respective providers of the training-relevant application as named in the course description. Insofar as a third country transfer takes place, an appropriate level of data protection is assured via standard data protection clauses.

Purpose + legal basis: Provision of course-relevant software access for practical exercises. The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR (contract fulfilment), as the provision of the software is part of the course offer.

Storage period: We delete the test accesses six months after the end of the course. Should a participant wish to have their account deleted earlier, we will delete it correspondingly earlier.

Chat with course participants (Slack)
We offer our course participants the opportunity to exchange with other participants and the course instructors in a chat, which we make available as a Slack channel. The use of Slack and the exchange via it is not mandatory and offers an additional communication channel besides e-mails and other functions of our learning software that can be used voluntarily.

To chat via Slack, you must independently create a user account with Slack and download the Slack app to your end device. We do not receive any data from Slack about your usage behaviour. We only receive the messages that you publish in the Slack channel of the respective course offering. The responsibility for the communication infrastructure lies solely with Slack. We are only responsible for the Slack channels we set up and their deletion after completion of the course.

For more information about how Slack handles your user data, please see Slack's privacy policy: https://slack.com/intl/de-de/trust/privacy/privacy-policy.

Data categories: Data processed by Headstart Studios: Expressions in the Slack channel of the relevant course. Data processed by Slack: User account and activity log including technical logfile (e.g. IP address from which Slack is accessed); see Slack's privacy information for details.

Data recipients (third country transfer if applicable): Slack Technologies LLC (a subsidiary of Salesforce.com Inc.), 500 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA. Slack processes the data both in EU data centres and in the USA. For this third country transfer, we have concluded EU standard data protection clauses with Slack, via which Slack guarantees that the data is handled at EU data protection level.

Purpose + legal basis: Communication via a Slack channel serves to optimise interactivity among the participants and with the lecturers and to increase the success of the training through such exchange. The legal basis for processing the communication content is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPRContractual fulfilment, as the communication channel is part of the training offer and its use is voluntary. The legal basis for data processing by Slack is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR Fulfilment of the user contract, which participants conclude independently of and with Slack.

Storage period: The Slack channels for the respective course offers with the communication content contained therein will be deleted by us immediately after completion of the course. The storage period of the general user data is the responsibility of the participants and, if applicable, their employers as well as Slack.

Preparatory questionnaire
We offer a one-off questionnaire to some prospective participants before they book their course, so that we can direct them to the course that best suits them based on their answers. Participation in this preparatory questionnaire is voluntary and is used to select the most suitable offer.
We use the SurveyMonkey service as the platform for the online questionnaire. Your responses to the questionnaire will be used solely by us. Other data processing, e.g. resulting from accessing the website, is the sole responsibility of SurveyMonkey.

On our behalf, SurveyMonkey stores the IP address from which you accessed the questionnaire and blocks re-filling from the same IP address.
Details of SurveyMonkey's privacy policy can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.de/mp/legal/privacy/

Data categories: By us: answers to your questions and IP address; by SurveyMonkey: weblog (IP address, timestamp, browser version and operating system of the end device used).

Data recipients (third country transfer if applicable): With regard to the content of the questionnaire, SurveyMonkey is obligated to data protection as a processor. With regard to the weblog, there is a direct transfer by you to SurveyMonkey. SurveyMonkey is a service of the US provider Momentive Inc., which can be contacted by us as an EU company via Momentive Europe UC, 2nd Floor, 2 Shelbourne Buildings, Shelbourne Road, Dublin, Ireland. SurveyMonkey also transfers data to third countries and has secured these transfers via EU data protection clauses and, where necessary, supplementary measures.
Purpose + legal basis: One-off use of an online questionnaire in preparation for our course selection advice. The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR Contract fulfilment or, in this case, contract preparation.

Storage period: We store your answers until the end of your customer relationship with us. For the storage periods of other data processing by SurveyMonkey, see their data protection information.

Functions in the app
You can access the content of your courses booked with us and your user profile via our app. The functions in the app are basically the same as those offered in the internet browser, but are optimised for use on mobile devices. Special app-related data processing does not take place. Reference can be made to the "online training" processing.

Even though we are responsible for the operation of the app, the app is offered for download in the app stores by the external app developers as developers on our behalf.

Data categories: See the processing "Online training".

Data recipients (third country transfer, if applicable): See the processing "Online training".

Purpose + legal basis: See the processing "Online training".
Storage period: See the processing "Online training".

Download of the apps
If you want to use our app on your mobile device, you will need to download it to your device from an app shop appropriate for your device's operating system. For iOS devices this is Apple's AppStore, for Android devices it is either Google's PlayStore or another platform for Android apps.

All data processing in connection with the download of our app takes place between you and the respective app store. We do not receive any personal data about this, only statistical compilations about the number of downloads. For all information about the respective data processing, we refer you to the corresponding data protection information of Apple, Google or the download platform you use.

Video conference (Google Meet)
If you take part in a video conference with us to which we have (technically) invited you, the responsibility for the data processing through this communication lies with us. We also use Google Meet for video conferences. When we invite to a conference, we send a Google Meet URL related to the specific conference with the appointment.

To participate in a video conference, you must use either the Google Meet app for mobile devices or workstations (desktop/laptop). The apps are automatically offered to you for download when you open the invitation link to a conference. It is also possible to participate by telephone alone. In addition to the invitation URL, you will also be provided with the corresponding access data for a telephone dial-in.

As a participant, you do not have to create a user account with Google. However, you are free to use such an account for participation. When you dial in to the conference, you will be asked to give yourself a participant name for the conference, so that you can be identified, for example, when speaking in the chat during the conference. You can also use fantasy names here. The app asks for your consent to access your microphone and camera. You can give any of these permissions, but you do not have to if you want to follow a conference without active participation, for example. In addition to audio and video, the conference app offers you supplementary functions: an accompanying chat for exchanges in text form, requests to speak via iconicons, profile maintenance (profile picture, additional contact data, artificial background picture).

Conferences can be recorded. When we record conferences, we inform all participants before the start of the recording and only start the recording when all participants have given their consent to the recording. If a participant does not consent to the recording, the recording will either be waived or the person will be asked not to participate in the recorded conference. Unless there is an explicit recording, the conference will not be stored in any way. After the conference has ended, the contents of an unrecorded conference can no longer be accessed. In this respect, this corresponds to telephone conversations which have not been recorded.

It is technically possible for each participant to make screenshots or a recording of the conference in whole or in part using his or her own means. Such behaviour without appropriate consultation with all participants may constitute a data protection violation on the part of the acting person and, if it is not one of our employees, is outside our responsibility. Surreptitious recording of the spoken word may constitute a criminal offence under § 201 of the Criminal Code. We reserve the right to take legal action of any kind against persons who use their participation in a video conference to engage in conduct that is hostile to data protection.

As the host (moderator) of the conference, we have the technical means to mute or black out you, change your user name and exercise other moderator rights without your involvement. We only use such options if there is a need to do so.
Google is bound to us by a data protection order processing agreement. Google is not allowed to use the data generated in the course of conference participation for its own purposes. As far as data processing is concerned that is not directly related to the specific conference, the responsibility does not lie with us but directly with Google. This applies, for example, to the download of the app or the use of your own Google user account. By downloading the app onto your end device, you establish an independent legal relationship between yourself and Google.

The data transfer between your terminal device and the Google server requires Google to take note of the IP address through which you are online during the video conference. The servers also collect all types of data that are regularly generated during the use of telemedia services. For comprehensive information on the use of data collected by Google, please refer to Google's privacy information (https://policies.google.com/privacy) and Google's information on cookies (https://policies.google.com/technologies/cookies).

Data categories: User name, participation times, video or audio signal, video or audio recording (only with consent), actions in the chat, status word message, profile data (profile picture, contact data, background picture), telephone number (for participation by telephone); further data categories such as log data (incl. IP address) or login data are processed by Google under its own responsibility.

Data recipient (if applicable, third country transfer): Google Cloud EMEA Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google is obligated to us to observe data protection via an order processing contract. Insofar as data is transferred by Google to third countries, Google guarantees that the data will be handled at EU data protection level by concluding standard data protection clauses.

Purpose + legal basis: Use of a video conference. Depending on the content of the conversation, the legal basis is preparation or fulfilment of a contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR or according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR the legitimate interest in exchanging information with you. For recordings, the legal basis is consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

Storage period: If no recording takes place, all data will be deleted at the end of the conference. If the conference was recorded, the recording is deleted as soon as the last purpose for which the recording was made has been achieved.

Direct communication with us
Phone calls

When we call each other, our mobile phones or our cloud-based telephone system in conjunction with our softphones record your number and the time of the call. This data in the call lists is continuously deleted from subsequent calls.
If the content of the call suggests this, we create a call note and record it in the appropriate place (e.g. in the customer database or for applicants in the personnel area). It is conceivable that we will include your data in our contact directory for customers, business partners and other contacts.
Conversations are only recorded in exceptional cases and after we have obtained your express consent.

Data categories: Telephone number; time of the call; content of the call, if applicable.

Data recipients (third country transfer if applicable): Telecommunications providers covered by telecommunications secrecy and the service provider for our cloud telephone system in connection with our softphones, who is bound to data protection via an order processing agreement. A third country transfer does not take place.

Purpose + legal basis: Communication by telephone call Depending on the content of the conversation, the legal basis is the preparation or fulfilment of a contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR or according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR the legitimate interest in exchanging information with you.

Storage period: Depending on the content of the conversation; regularly only a few days. Individual conversation notes may fall under the retention obligation for business letters of six years under commercial law.

IV. Data processing in the context of our online presences

In addition to the website, we are also represented on online platforms and social networks. If you visit these online presences and communicate with us via them, their terms and conditions and data protection policies (see below) as well as this data protection declaration apply. In this respect, we are, where applicable, jointly responsible with the provider under data protection law in accordance with Article 26 GDPR.

Your data may be processed for analysis and advertising purposes. This is done, for example, by creating user profiles from your usage behaviour and the resulting interests. Cookies are usually used to store the usage profiles, which make it possible to analyse your usage behaviour and interests. The usage profiles are usually used to enable advertisements to be placed with the respective provider or elsewhere on the Internet that correspond to your interests. In addition, other data may also be stored for the usage profiles, especially if you are a registered user of the platform of the respective provider and are logged in to it. For a detailed description of the processing by the respective providers and the consent (opt-in), we refer to the information of the providers linked below.

If you visit our online presence and communicate via these online presences, the data processing that takes place is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter a) GDPR), provided that you have given this consent. Your consent can be revoked at any time (see V. Your rights / 5. Right to revoke consent). Otherwise, data processing, in particular communication with us, is carried out on the basis of legitimate interests (Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter f) GDPR. In this respect, our interest is to be able to offer you an online presence that is as informative, adapted to you and appealing as possible.

We will delete your data (in particular the content of our communication) as soon as it is no longer required for the respective purpose and insofar as this is possible for us. You have the rights listed under "Your rights" (see below) vis-à-vis us and the provider. Since access to your data is partly only possible for the respective provider, you should in any case also assert your rights vis-à-vis the provider.

If you communicate with us via these online presences, we process the data contained in your messages and posts either on the basis of Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter b) GDPR or Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter f) GDPR, depending on the content contained therein and the purposes pursued with the communication. Your data will be deleted, insofar as this is permitted by the online presence, as soon as they are no longer required for the respective purpose.

Facebook
Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (www.facebook.com) and Facebook Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland (www.facebook.de)) enables us to obtain your anonymised data on so-called fan pages using the Facebook Insight function, which is available as a non-derogable part of the user relationship. This data is collected by means of cookies, each of which contains a unique user code. The user code, can be linked to your Facebook login details if you are registered with Facebook and is collected and processed when you access the fan page. Facebook provides more detailed information on this under the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

In what way Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us. When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (for "German" IP addresses).

Facebook also stores information about its users' end devices (e.g. as part of the "login notification" function); this may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users. If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook ID is stored on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in websites enable Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you. If you want to make it more difficult for Facebook to track you, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies present on your device and close and restart your browser. This will delete Facebook information that can directly identify you. This allows you to use our Facebook page without Facebook being able to identify you via your cookies.

When you access interactive functions on the site (like, comment, share, message, etc.), a Facebook login screen appears. Once you have logged in, you will be directly recognisable to Facebook as a specific user.
Information on how to manage or delete information about you can be found on the following Facebook support pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy#.

V. Data processing in the context of applications

If you send us data about yourself in the context of an application (in particular name, contact details, CV, covering letter, certificates, etc.), we store and process this data exclusively for the duration of and in order to carry out the application procedure. The legal basis for this is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter b) GDPR. After completion of the application process, your data will be securely deleted. We do not pass this on to third parties. Internally, only those persons who need to be informed within the scope of the application procedure or employment relationship will receive knowledge.
Please note that we do not request any information about race, ethnic origin, gender, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual identity, illness, pregnancy, political views, philosophical or religious beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health or sex life as part of your application.

VI. Routine deletion and blocking of data

As a matter of principle, we only store your data for the period of time required to achieve the purpose of storage or if this is stipulated by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another legislator in laws or regulations to which we are subject. For Germany, in particular, there is an obligation to retain data for 6 years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 of the German Commercial Code (in particular commercial books, inventories, opening balances, annual financial statements, commercial letters, accounting vouchers). Pursuant to § 147 para. 1, 3 German Fiscal Code (Abgabenordnung) 10 years for books, records, management reports, accounting vouchers, documents relevant for taxation as well as 6 years in particular for commercial and business letters. If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a legally prescribed storage period expires, your personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions. Please also note the specific explanations on individual storage and deletion periods in this data protection declaration.

VII. Your rights

As a person affected by data processing (Article 4 No. 1 GDPR), you have numerous rights vis-à-vis us, which we would like to inform you about below. You will also find details of these in Articles 15 to 21 of the GDPR and §§ 32 to 37 of the BDSG (in the version applicable from 25 May 2018).
To assert your rights, please contact (also informally if you wish) the following office:
E-mail: info@omr.com

1. right to information
You have the right to receive information from us about whether and which data we process about you. This includes, among other things, information on how long and for what purpose we process the data, where it comes from and to which recipients or categories of recipients we pass it on. We can also provide you with a copy of this data.

2 Right to rectification
You have the right to request that we correct information about you that is not or no longer accurate without delay. In addition, you can request that we complete your incomplete personal data. If required by law, we will also inform third parties of this correction if we have disclosed your data to them.

3. right to erasure ("right to be forgotten")
You have the right to request that we delete your personal data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:
- Your data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed or the purpose has been achieved;
- You withdraw your consent and there is no other legal basis for the processing;
- You object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing; where personal data is used for direct marketing, a mere objection by you to the processing is sufficient;
- your personal data have been processed unlawfully;
- the erasure of your personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which we are subject.

Please note that your right to deletion may be restricted by legal provisions. These include, in particular, the restrictions listed in Article 17 of the GDPR and § 35 of the Federal Data Protection Act (in the version applicable as of 25 May 2018).

4. right to restriction of processing (blocking)
You have the right to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
- You dispute the accuracy of your personal data for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of your personal data;
- we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or
- You have objected to the processing as long as it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate grounds outweigh yours.
If you have obtained a restriction of processing in accordance with the above list, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.

5. right of revocation for consents
You can revoke the consent you have given us at any time with effect for the future. This revocation can take the form of an informal communication to the above contact addresses. This also applies to consents you gave us before the GDPR came into force (i.e. before 25 May 2018). If you revoke your consent, the lawfulness of the data processing carried out up to that point will not be affected. As a rule, the consequence of a revocation is that you can no longer use our service, in the context of which we have asked you for your consent, or can no longer use it to the full extent.

6. Right to data portability
You have the right to receive personal data relating to you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transfer this data to others. Details and restrictions can be found in Article 20 of the GDPR. The exercise of this right does not affect your right to erasure.

7. right to complain to the supervisory authority
If you believe that the processing of your data by us violates applicable data protection law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with one of the competent supervisory authorities, i.e. in particular the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information or the respective supervisory authority in the member state of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged data protection violation.

8. right of objection according to Article 21 GDPR
According to Article 21 GDPR, you have in particular the right to object to the processing of your data at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation, if we base this processing on legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6(1) sentence 1(f) GDPR. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data, except in two cases:
- we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or
- the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
In particular, also insofar as we process your personal data for direct advertising (e.g. within the scope of our newsletter), you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data for the purpose of such advertising. If you object to the processing of your data for direct advertising purposes, we will no longer use your personal data for this purpose.

VIII. Help with data protection terms

In this data protection declaration, we use some terms that have also been used by the legislator, in particular in the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As it is important to us that this data protection declaration is understandable for you, we explain some important terms in alphabetical order below:

Processor: This is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of a controller.
Data subject: This is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

Browser: This is a program for displaying websites on the Internet, for example the programs Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

Cookies: These are small text files that contain a characteristic string of characters (cookie ID) and are filed and stored on your device (e.g. smartphone or computer) via an internet browser if you do not prevent this through technical settings. Cookies enable the websites and servers visited to distinguish your individual browser from other internet browsers. A specific internet browser can therefore be recognised and identified via the unique cookie ID. In this way, it is possible to make it easier for you to use our website, as you only have to enter certain data once, for example. Wherever possible, we use cookies that are deleted again when you close your browser (so-called session cookies). In addition, we also use cookies that are stored on your computer for a longer period of time (so-called persistent cookies). In addition to the option of configuring your browser so that it does not accept cookies, you can delete cookies that have already been set at any time via an Internet browser or other programs. Please note, however, that not using cookies may mean that not all functions of our website or services can be fully used.

Third party: This is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body (other than the data subject), the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

Restriction of processing: This is a marking of stored personal data in such a way that their future processing (e.g. with regard to specific processing purposes) is restricted.

Consent: This is any freely given specific and informed indication of his or her wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Recipient: this is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party.
IP address: This is an address assigned to your device (e.g. smartphone or computer) on the internet so that their device can be addressed and reached there.

Pixel tags (web beacons): These are small, usually invisible graphics that are integrated into websites and other services in order to be able to carry out statistical analyses, usually for marketing purposes.

Personal data: This is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (also referred to as a "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Profiling: this is a type of automated processing of personal data which consists of using that personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.

Pseudonymisation: This is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the addition of further information. This is particularly the case if the additional information is kept separately and technical and organisational measures have been taken to ensure that it is no longer possible with reasonable effort to attribute the data to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Processing: This is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Controller or controllers: These are the natural or legal persons, public authorities, bodies or agencies which alone or jointly with others determine the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

IX. Security

We use technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data against misuse, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures correspond to the current state of the art.

X. Validity and changes to the data protection declaration

The data protection declaration is currently valid and dated 11.06.2021.
Due to the further development of our website or the implementation of new technologies, it may become necessary to change this data protection declaration. We reserve the right to make corresponding changes at any time.
