    6.2 For this purpose, we use the following third-party services, which are also recipients of the data

    Google Analytics

    This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, by activating IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

    Google Analytics has been extended by the code “anonymizeIp”, so that an anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking) is guaranteed. Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found here.

    The data collected with Google Analytics is automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion takes place automatically once a month. The data is transferred to the USA under the EU-US Privacy Shield on the basis of the European Commission’s adequacy decision. You can access the certificate here.

    You can generally prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics on any website you visit by downloading the browser plug-in available at the following link: and install the browser plugin. If you use several browsers, you must install the plugin in each browser.

    You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data on this website by clicking on the “Disable Tracking” button below. This will set an opt-out cookie that will prevent future collection of your data when visiting this website.

    However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

    §7 Other links to external providers

    Insofar as links are provided to websites of other providers, this data protection declaration does not apply to their content. What data the operators of these sites may collect is beyond our knowledge and sphere of influence.

    §8 Data protection officer

    If you have any questions about the processing of your personal data or about data protection in general, please contact the data protection officer, who is also available to you in the event of complaints:

    §9 Webinars via “Microsoft Teams

    9.1 Purpose of the processing
    The “Microsoft Teams” tool is used to conduct webinars. “Microsoft Teams” is a service of Microsoft Corporation.

    9.2 Person responsible
    The person responsible for data processing directly related to the implementation of webinars is fino run GmbH.

    Note: Insofar as you call up the website of “Microsoft Teams”, the provider of “Microsoft Teams” is responsible for the data processing. However, accessing the website is only necessary to download the software for the use of “Microsoft Teams”. If you do not want to or cannot use the “Microsoft Teams” app, you can also use “Microsoft Teams” via your browser. The service will then also be provided via the “Microsoft Teams” website.

    9.3 What data is processed
    When using “Microsoft Teams”, various types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the data you provide before or during participation in a webinar.

    The following personal data are subject to processing:

    User details: e.g. display name (“Display name”), e-mail address if applicable, profile picture (optional), preferred language.

    Meeting metadata: e.g. date, time, meeting ID, telephone numbers, location

    For dial-in with the telephone: information on the incoming and outgoing call number, country, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be stored.

    Text, audio and video data: You may have the opportunity to use the chat function in a webinar. In this respect, the text entries you make will be processed in order to display them in the webinar. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device will be processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the “Microsoft Teams” applications.

    9.4 Scope of processing
    The webinars are not recorded or stored. Depending on the type of delivery, chats and the opportunity for discussion may also be used. It is your decision to participate in these ways. Storage/recording is not provided for.

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

    9.5 Legal basis for data processing
    Insofar as the webinars are carried out within the framework of contractual relationships, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO is the legal basis for data processing.

    Otherwise, your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO is the legal basis of the processing.

    9.6 Disclosure of data
    Personal data processed in connection with participation in webinars will not be passed on to third parties as a matter of principle, unless they are specifically intended to be passed on. Please note that content from “webinars as well as personal 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 “Microsoft Teams” provider necessarily receives knowledge of the above-mentioned data insofar as this is provided for in the context of our order processing agreement with “Microsoft Teams”.

    9.7 Data processing outside the European Union
    Data processing outside the European Union (EU) does not take place as a matter of principle, as we have restricted our storage location to data centres in the European Union. However, we cannot exclude the routing of data via internet servers located outside the EU. This may be the case in particular if participants in webinars are located in a third country.

    However, the data is encrypted during transport via the internet and thus protected against unauthorised access by third parties.
