The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO carried out. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the ongoing optimization of our website.

These interests are to be considered legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision. The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc(https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/)(1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, 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 is the full IP address 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 is not merged with other data from Google.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that it is not possible to relate them to a specific person. Insofar as the data collected about you has a personal reference, this is therefore immediately excluded and the personal data is thus immediately deleted.
This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item “Objection to data collection”.

We would like to inform you below about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of “Zoom”. Purpose of processing We use the tool “Zoom” to conduct telephone conferences, online meetings, video conferences (hereinafter: “online meetings”). “Zoom” is a service provided by Zoom Video Communications, Inc. which is based in the USA. The responsible party for data processing directly related to the conduct of “Online Meetings” is WiN Emscher-Lippe GmbH. Note: Insofar as you call up the website of “Zoom”, the provider of “Zoom” is responsible for data processing. However, calling up the Internet page is only necessary for the use of “Zoom” 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, further access data for the meeting directly in the “Zoom” app. If you do not want to or cannot use the “Zoom” app, then the basic functions can also be used via a browser version, which you can also find on the “Zoom” website. What data is processed? When using “Zoom”, different types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the data you provide before or during participation in an “online meeting”. The following personal data are subject to processing: User details: first name, last name, phone (optional), email address, password (if “single sign-on” is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional) Meeting metadata: Topic, Description (optional), Attendee 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 dialing in by telephone: information about the incoming and outgoing call number, country name, 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 option to use 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 log them. To enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device as well as from any video camera of the terminal device are processed accordingly during the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the “Zoom” applications. 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 transparently communicate this to you in advance and – if necessary – ask for consent. The fact of recording is also displayed in the “Zoom” app. If necessary for the purposes of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will not usually be the case. In the case of webinars, we may also process questions asked by webinar participants for the purposes of recording and following up webinars. If you are registered as a user at “Zoom”, then reports on “online meetings” (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored at “Zoom” for up to one month. Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO is not used. Legal basis for data processing Insofar as personal data is processed by employees of WiN Emscher-Lippe GmbH, Section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (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 nevertheless an elementary component of the use of “Zoom”, then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO is the legal basis for the data processing. Our interest in these cases is in the effective conduct of “online meetings”. Incidentally, the legal basis for data processing when conducting “online meetings” is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO, insofar as the meetings are conducted within the framework of contractual relationships. If no contractual relationship exists, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Again, our interest is in the effective conduct of “online meetings”. Recipients / Disclosure of Data Personal data processed in connection with participation in “Online Meetings” will not be disclosed to third parties as a matter of principle, unless they are specifically intended for disclosure. Please note that, as with face-to-face meetings, content from “online meetings” is often intended to be used to communicate information with customers, prospects or third parties and is therefore intended to be shared. Other recipients: The provider of “Zoom” necessarily obtains knowledge of the above data to the extent provided for in our order processing agreement with “Zoom”.
“Zoom” is a service provided by a provider from the USA. A processing of personal data therefore also takes place in a third country. We have concluded an order processing agreement with the provider of “Zoom” that complies with the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO. An appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed on the one hand by the “Privacy Shield” certification of Zoom Video Communications, Inc. and on the other hand by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.

Finally, you have the right to object to processing within the scope of the law. A right to data portability also exists within the framework of data protection law.
