In the following we would like to inform you about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of "Zoom".


Purpose of processing

We use the tool "Zoom" to conduct yoga online classes, online meetings, video conferences and / or webinars (hereinafter: "Online Meetings"). "Zoom" is a service provided by Zoom Video Communications, Inc., which is based in the United States.


Responsible person


Sabine Winkler is responsible for data processing that is directly related to the implementation of "online meetings".



Note: If you access the “Zoom” website, the “Zoom” provider is responsible for the data processing. Calling up the website is only required to use "Zoom" in order to download the software for using "Zoom".


You can also use "Zoom" if you enter the respective meeting ID and any 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 are processed?


Different types of data are processed when using "Zoom". The scope of the data also depends on the information you provide about data before or when participating in an "online meeting".


The following personal data are processed:


User information: first name, last name, telephone (optional), email 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 the online meeting chat.

When dialing in with the phone: information on the incoming and outgoing phone number, country name, start and end time. Possibly. further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be saved.

Text, audio and video data: You may have the option of using the chat, question or survey functions in an "online meeting". In this respect, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the "online meeting" and, if necessary, to record them. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and any video camera on the terminal device are processed accordingly during the duration of the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the "Zoom" applications.

In order to take part 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 is also displayed in the "Zoom" app.

If necessary for the purpose of logging 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 purpose of recording and following up webinars.

If you are registered as a user at "Zoom", reports on "Online Meetings" (meeting metadata, data on telephone dial-in, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be saved for up to one month in "Zoom".

The option of software-based “attention monitoring” (“attention tracking”) that exists in “online meeting” tools such as “zoom” is deactivated.

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



Legal basis for data processing

As far as personal data is processed, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis for data processing. If, in connection with the use of "Zoom", personal data is not required for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is an elementary component in the use of "Zoom", Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, we are interested in the effective implementation of "online meetings".

In addition, the legal basis for data processing when conducting "online meetings" is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as the meetings are held in the context of contractual relationships.

If there is no contractual relationship, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Here, too, we are interested in the effective implementation of "online meetings".


Recipient / transfer of data

Personal data that are processed in connection with participation in "online meetings" are generally not passed on to third parties unless they are intended to be passed on. Please note that content from "online meetings", as well as from personal meeting meetings, is often used to communicate information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on.

Other recipients: The provider of "Zoom" necessarily receives knowledge of the above data, insofar as this is provided for in our order processing contract with "Zoom".


Data processing outside the European Union

"Zoom" is a service that is provided by a provider from the USA. Processing of personal data 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 GDPR.

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