As a rule, we process personal data on a legal basis or with the consent of the data subjects or for the performance of a contract (provision of services and benefits) with the data subjects. Personal data that you have provided to us via a website or email will only be processed for the purpose for which you have provided us with your data. The personal data provided will only be forwarded to the relevant department. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties unless required by law.
Storage of data
The personal data provided to us will only be stored until the purpose for which it was entrusted to us has been fulfilled. Insofar as statutory retention and limitation periods are to be observed, these will be complied with, and in addition until any warranty or guarantee periods as well as, in particular, retention obligations with regard to the use of public (funding) funds for the provision of our services and services in the public interest. No data is transferred to third parties, with the exception of the transfer of relevant data to third parties for the purpose of fulfilling contracts/services.

General technical and organizational security measures
Data security is an important concern for us when processing personal data. The measures set for this purpose are regularly reviewed and adjusted if necessary. All persons with access to the systems are subject to corresponding legal and organizational requirements and guidelines.
Specific measures are adapted to the protection requirements of the respective systems and include, for example, spatial access restrictions and controls, authorization and role concepts for all accesses to data and program functionalities, securing and monitoring of clients and networks, encryption of communications and storage media, development standards, maintenance and updating of components, authentication, pseudonymization, service redundancies, backup strategies, random checks of accesses and periodic rights audits.
Note regarding events
Events on relevant topics are offered. Personal data is collected and processed for the organization of events. In addition, image and/or video material is created at the events for documentation purposes. The legal basis for the processing is legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 DSGVO). Recipients of the data are co-organizers of the events, printers for sending event-related materials such as invitations, photographers for taking and editing photos of the event, and IT service providers, which we use to carry out this processing activity.
There are no transfers to third countries.
Note regarding newsletter
In order to be able to send interested parties newsletters on relevant topics, contact information is collected and processed. In addition, statistical data on the use of the newsletter is collected and processed in order to improve its content.
The legal basis for the processing is consent or legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 DSGVO) in each case in conjunction with § 107 TKG.
The recipient of the data is the service provider Mailchimp, which we use to carry out this processing activity. You will only receive the EdTech newsletter and no other promotional emails. Transmissions to the USA take place. Our processors are Privacy Shield certified and therefore have a level of data protection comparable to the EU.
Unsubscribing is possible at any time (link in each newsletter). The data will be deleted after unsubscribing from the newsletter.

Note regarding plugins of social networks
We have integrated plugins of the following social networks: Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and LinkedIn. Our website offers you the opportunity to share links to our content on social media platforms by means of so-called “social bookmarks”, whereby initially no personal data is transmitted to these providers. Only when you click on one of the social media icons will personal data be transmitted: When you call up the website of the respective social media provider, data is automatically transmitted to the respective service provider and stored there (including in the case of US providers in the USA). We have no influence on the data collected and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes and the storage periods.
For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the respective social media service, please refer to the privacy statements of these providers, which are provided below.
