Data Protection and conditions of use

Legal basis
As a company organised under private law, MVC Mobile VideoCommunication GmbH is subject to the data protection provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and the German Telecommunications Act (TKG) in particular.

Technical and organisational data protection measures
Protecting the personal data processed and used otherwise on the systems of MVC Mobile VideoCommunication GmbH is of special concern to us as one of the leading system vendors for video conferencing technology, particularly with regard to our customers from the financial sector, the healthcare system, universities of applied sciences, industry and the political sphere with especially high security requirements. We have therefore implemented a comprehensive data protection and IT security concept globally, using technological and organisational data protection measures. These sufficiently ensure the protection of the personal and other company-related data processed and used on our systems. This covers the protection of your personal data (e.g. your name, your address or email address and your login data) equally when visiting our websites.

The internal organisation of MVC Mobile VideoCommunication GmbH is such that persons are only given physical or EDP-based access to personal data if they are authorised for this within their company remit. All persons employed in the company are obliged to observe data secrecy in accordance with Section 5 of the Federal Data Protection Act. The building and operational areas are locked at all times and may only be accessed by employees to the extent necessary. The handling of company resources and data files is governed by numerous internal policies. A list of procedures records the procedures used to process personal data, including the technological and organisational data protection measures used for this.

As part of his duties, the company data protection officer supervises the proper use of data processing systems and advises the company on issues concerning data protection. Regular further training in relation to data protection ensures that our employees have the necessary specialist knowledge in this field.

Use and forwarding of personal data
It is generally possible to use our websites without entering personal data. In so far as our websites collect personal information, such as when using the contact form, this always takes place on a voluntary basis. These data shall only be used for their intended purpose, and in particular they shall not be passed on to third parties without your express permission, unless there is a statutory obligation to do so, or we are obliged to do so by order of a court, or it is necessary to pass on these data in order to defend or enforce legal entitlements. In general, personal data shall not be passed to states outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area.

We shall collect, process and use your personal data only in so far as this is necessary to establish, conduct or terminate a relationship with you under the law of obligations that is based on a legal transaction or similar. In so far as you have granted us permission to collect and use your data, you may withdraw this at any time with future effect. If there is no longer any purpose for using personal data, these data shall be deleted. Instead of deleting data, we may block them in so far as deletion conflicts with legal, statutory or contractual retention periods, deletion would affect protection-worthy interests of the party concerned, or deletion is not possible or only possible at unreasonably high expense due to the particular type of storage.

Information and right of withdrawal
You shall have the right to obtain information at any time about the data we have stored in relation to you personally, their origin, the recipient of the data and the purpose of data processing, within the scope of the statutory provisions. If you object to the storage of data that you have provided to us, we shall delete them without delay in so far as no further legal entitlements are associated with the continued storage or no statutory regulations exist in this regard. To do this, you may contact us by email, fax, post or telephone. Our contact details can be found on our Company Details page.

Data transfer over the internet
We point out that data transfer over the internet (e.g. when contacting us using our web form or communicating with us by email) may feature security loopholes, and without special protection measures, such as encryption of data or the data stream, transferred data cannot be protected fully from access by unauthorised third parties due to technical limitations. For this reason, please do not send us confidential content over the internet or by email without appropriate protective measures.
