  • Metadata (e.g. IP address, time of participation, etc.)

Chat content is logged when using Microsoft Teams. Files that users share in chats are stored in the OneDrive for Business account of the user who shared the file. The files that team members share in a channel are stored on the team's SharePoint site.

3. Microsoft Teams service

Microsoft Teams is a product from the Microsoft Office 365 product suite. Through the video conferencing feature of Microsoft Teams, we can offer you participation via video and audio in our meetings and online events. We do not record the Microsoft Teams online events and meetings unless we have obtained their consent in advance.

The people who can see your audio and video input depends on the team modes we use:

Live events:
During live events, we do not allow sound or video recordings of participants in order to maintain anonymity.

Team Meetings:
In team meetings, all participants can set their own audio and video inputs. Unauthorized processing by other participants, e.g. by recording the meeting, cannot be definitively excluded or prevented by us.

Own data processing by Microsoft

In accordance with its privacy policy, Microsoft reserves the right to process customer data for its own legitimate business purposes. We have no control over these data processing activities by Microsoft. To the extent that Microsoft Teams processes personal data in connection with legitimate business purposes, Microsoft is the independent data controller for those data processing activities and, as such, is responsible for compliance with all applicable data protection laws. If you need information about Microsoft's processing, we encourage you to review the relevant Microsoft statement:

We carry out the data processing under items 2 and 3. on the basis of a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR.

Upon request, you will receive information about all personal data that we have stored about you at any time and free of charge.

b) Correction, deletion, restriction of processing (blocking), objection

If you no longer agree to the storage of your personal data or if this data has become incorrect, we will arrange for the deletion or blocking of your data or make the necessary corrections (insofar as this is possible under the applicable law) in response to a corresponding instruction. The same applies if we are only to process data in a restrictive manner in the future. You have the right to object in particular in cases where your data is required due to the performance of a task that is in the public interest or in our legitimate interest, as well as profiling based on this. You also have such a right of objection in the event of data processing for the purpose of direct advertising.

You can revoke consents granted at any time with effect for the future. Your revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing until the time of revocation.

You also have the possibility to complain to a supervisory authority about your data protection rights:

f) Restrictions

Data for which we are not able to identify the data subject, e.g. if it has been anonymized for analysis purposes, is not covered by the above rights.
