The ZBW uses video conferencing services to conduct meetings, events, webinars or conference calls. Personal data are processed during these virtual meetings. The type of data depends on what you provide to the service provider before or during the meeting. These may include the following data:
Personal data: first name, name, email address, password, phone number, profile image
Meeting data: name and description of the meeting, IP addresses, device information

If chat functions are used, your text inputs will be processed and saved, if applicable, until they are deleted manually.

You can deactivate your camera and microphone yourself in the settings at any time during a conference. Video conferencing services offer recording options. The ZBW usually does not record conferences. Should the ZBW deviate from this in individual cases, you will be informed in advance and your permission will be requested if necessary.
