In this data protection declaration, we use the following terms:
- Personal data: Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
- Data subject: Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
- Processing: Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
- Restriction of processing: Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
- Profiling: Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
- Pseudonymisation: Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
- Controller or controller responsible for the processing: Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
- Processor: Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
- Recipient: Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
- Third party: Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
- Consent: Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
The Data Protection Officer of the controller is:
Any data subject may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer directly with all questions and suggestions concerning data protection.
Our website collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be
- the browser types and versions used,
- the operating system used by the accessing system,
- the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers),
- the sub-websites,
- the date and time of access to the Internet site,
- an Internet protocol address (IP address),
- the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
- any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to
- deliver the content of our website correctly,
- optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement,
- ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and
- provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.
Therefore, the TUM Venture Labs Management gGmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
The processing of the above data is carried out,
- to enable the use of the website in technical terms
- to authenticate and authorize a user to use the website (e.g. when using paid online services)
- to create pseudonymous usage statistics for us and our users (e.g. evaluation of usage for optimization and marketing purposes, in particular to make product improvements)
- to document possible contract conclusions and consents in a legally compliant manner
- to prevent data misuse and to investigate criminal offences
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
If you contact us via an e-mail address provided by us, we will store the data you provide with the e-mail. If you have the option of contacting us via a contact form on our website, the data you provide will be stored by us. The data is stored for the purpose of processing the request transmitted with your communication and, if necessary, to contact you. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR; our legitimate interest is the appropriate response to contact requests. If the request is directed towards the conclusion of a contract, the legal basis is also Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
With the following information, we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of a newsletter are concretely described, they are authoritative for the consent of the users. Incidentally, our newsletters contain information about us and our programs and events, as well as programs and events relevant to our target groups.
The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. That after registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses. The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Similarly, the changes to your data stored with MailChimp will be logged.
The newsletter is distributed via "MailChimp", a newsletter shipping platform of Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The e-mail addresses of our Newsletter recipients, as well as their other information described in these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the shipping and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or to pass them on to third parties.
To subscribe to the newsletter, please enter your e-mail address as well as your first and last name. This information is only used to personalise the newsletter
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our desire nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
You can terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie. Revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to sending it via MailChimp and the statistical analyzes will lapse. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.
We use Salesforce Sales Cloud to manage customer data. The provider is salesforce.com Germany GmbH, Erika-Mann-Str. 31, 80636 Munich (hereinafter "Salesforce").
Salesforce Sales Cloud is a CRM system and enables us, among other things, to manage existing and potential customers as well as customer contacts and to organise sales and communication processes. The use of the CRM system also enables us to analyse our customer-related processes. Customer data is stored on Salesforce servers. In the process, personal data may also be transmitted to the parent company of salesforce.com Germany GmbH, salesforce.com inc., Salesforce Tower, 415 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA.

On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to our website is made.
The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook. These applications may be used by the data subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
The controller has integrated components of the LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is a web-based social network that enables users with existing business contacts to connect and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered people in more than 200 countries use LinkedIn. Thus, LinkedIn is currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding LinkedIn component of LinkedIn. Further information about the LinkedIn plug-in may be accessed under https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on LinkedIn, LinkedIn detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the LinkedIn component and associated with the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated on our website, then LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores the personal data. LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at LinkedIn at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the LinkedIn button or not. If such a transmission of information to LinkedIn is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their LinkedIn account before a call-up to our website is made.
On this website, the controller has integrated components of XING. XING is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and to create new business contacts. The individual users can create a personal profile of themselves at XING. Companies may, e.g. create company profiles or publish jobs on XING.
The operating company of XING is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a XING component (XING plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding XING component of XING. Further information about the XING plug-in the may be accessed under https://dev.xing.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, XING gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on XING, XING detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the XING component and associated with the respective XING account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on the XING button integrated on our Internet site, e.g. the “Share”-button, then XING assigns this information to the personal XING user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
XING receives information via the XING component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at XING at the time of the call to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the XING component or not. If such a transmission of information to XING is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging off from their XING account before a call-up to our website is made.
The data protection provisions published by XING, which is available under https://www.xing.com/privacy, provide information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by XING. In addition, XING has published privacy notices for the XING share button under https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.
On this website, the controller has integrated components of Twitter. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly-accessible microblogging service on which users may publish and spread so-called ‘tweets,’ e.g. short messages, which are limited to 140 characters. These short messages are available for everyone, including those who are not logged on to Twitter. The tweets are also displayed to so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user’s tweets. Furthermore, Twitter allows you to address a wide audience via hashtags, links or retweets.
The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, UNITED STATES.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding Twitter component of Twitter. Further information about the Twitter buttons is available under https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. During the course of this technical procedure, Twitter gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. The purpose of the integration of the Twitter component is a retransmission of the contents of this website to allow our users to introduce this web page to the digital world and increase our visitor numbers.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Twitter, Twitter detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Twitter component and associated with the respective Twitter account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, then Twitter assigns this information to the personal Twitter user account of the data subject and stores the personal data. Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in on Twitter at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Twitter component or not. If such a transmission of information to Twitter is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Twitter account before a call-up to our website is made. The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter may be accessed under https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en.
We use the service on our website. When you call up a website in which media content from the provider is embedded, data is transmitted to a server of the provider and stored there. If you have a user account with the provider and are registered, the provider can thereby assign the visit to your user account. The provider stores this data as usage profiles and uses it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its websites. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for non-logged-in users) for the display of needs-based advertising and to inform other users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. Please contact the provider directly for this purpose.
We include content from the provider on the web pages of our Internet presence in order to make this content directly available to you without you having to call up the content separately on the provider's pages. This allows us to improve our offer and the user experience for you and make it more interesting. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) GDPR (consent).

On our website, Google Maps is integrated for you, a service of Google Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
In order for you to retain control over your data, we use the so-called two-click solution for the integration. This ensures that when you simply call up our website, no connection is established with Google's servers and your data is not transmitted to Google. The integration is initially deactivated by default and is only activated and loaded from the platform after you click on the button. After activating the link, your personal data about the use will be automatically processed by the platform as if you were visiting the platform directly. The platform is solely responsible for this processing.
To integrate different databases and tools, we use Zapier, a service of Zapier Inc., 548 Market St # 62411, San Francisco, California 94104, USA. In this case, customer data can be transmitted with the exception of the payment data. More information about Zapier's privacy can be found at https://zapier.com/privacy
We use personal data in pseudonymised form to provide users with "G Suite for Education" and "Google Classroom" with connected services (Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet), hereinafter referred to only as G Suite for Education. Users have the option of making settings for the protection of their personal data within G Suite for Education under: https://myaccount.google.com/ . G Suite for Education is a US platform and is therefore also subject to US national law. US investigative authorities can access user data stored in the US without users having the rights they are entitled to in the EU under the GDPR. How high the risks are that arise for users depends largely on how responsibly they behave when working with the platform. However, G Suite has received the C5 certificate from the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). C 5 means Cloud Computing Compliance Controls Catalogue and is a catalogue of requirements that is primarily aimed at professional cloud service providers, their auditors and the customers of the cloud service providers. It specifies which requirements the cloud providers must fulfil or at least which requirements the cloud provider should be obliged to fulfil.
We use for the purpose of the application process the service "Typeform”. Typeform is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our application process. You can find more information about Typeform at: https://www.typeform.com/ . This service is provided by: TYPEFORM S.L., Carrer Bac de Roda, 163, 08018 Barcelona ("Typeform").

We use the learning management system “cirqus” as part of our learning infrastructure in selected education formats. Cirqus processes data on our behalf in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR. The legal basis is our legitimate interest within the scope of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f in a user-friendly and effective learning infrastructure. This service is provided by the Cirqus UG (haftungsbeschränkt)Further information about data processing in connection with cirqus can be found here: https://cirqus.de/legal-notice/.
Our formats will be using the online video tool “Zoom”. Insofar as you call up the website of Zoom, the provider of Zoom is responsible for the data processing. However, calling up the website is only necessary for the use of Zoom in order to download the software for the use of Zoom.
The following personal data are subject to processing:
- User details (if you are participating with a registered account): first name, last name, e-mail address, password (if "single sign-on" is not used), telephone (optional), profile picture (optional)
- Meeting metadata: Topic, description (optional), IP address, device/hardware information
- Shared content: The content shared on a Miro whiteboard is stored. This can be, for example, text, images, drawings, audio or video files, websites or integrations from other services.
- Aggregated data: Miro stores anonymised data about user behaviour such as the geographical location of the dial-in or the type of terminal device. This aggregated data does not allow any conclusion to be drawn about the person and is also stored after deletion of the individual user.
You have the option to minimise the personal data collected and stored by Miro by participating without registering an account or giving your name.
In its decision of 16 July 2020, Case C-311/18 ("Schrems II"), the European Court of Justice (ECJ) declared the European Commission's adequacy decision on the EU-US Privacy Shield (Privacy Shield Decision 2016/1250) invalid. A level of data protection essentially comparable to European data protection standards does not exist for the USA.
Consequently, a valid adequacy decision of the European Commission with regard to a transfer of personal data to the USA within the meaning of Article 45 (1), (3) of the GDPR does not exist. Furthermore, there are no so-called appropriate safeguards within the meaning of Article 46 (2) and (3) of the GDPR. Possible risks of such data transfers without an adequacy decision and without appropriate safeguards result in particular from the fact that an adequate level of data protection cannot be guaranteed. The provider may have to grant government authorities access to the personal data processed. Personal data may therefore be passed on to third parties who process or use the data for their own purposes. Data subjects' rights may not be enforced.
We use the Storage module of Google Firebase (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to update content.
In these cases, data can be transferred to all Google data centres (also in non-EU countries without an adequate level of data protection, in particular the USA) without appropriate safeguards within the meaning of Art. 46 GDPR. In its judgment of 16 July 2020, Case C-311/18 ("Schrems II"), the ECJ found that an adequate level of data protection cannot be guaranteed in the USA. On the one hand, there is a risk of access to the transferred data by US security authorities without the possibility of effective legal remedies. On the other hand, there are no enforceable data subject rights. The transfer therefore only takes place with your express consent on the basis of Art. 49 (1) GDPR.
Further information on data protection in connection with Google Firebase can be found at: https://www.firebase.com/terms/privacy-policy.html
We use the web-based project management tool Trello to process the applicants' data. We do this to store the applicants' data so our staff can evaluate and handle applications. This service is provided by Trello, Inc., 55 Broadway, 25th Floor, New York, NY 10006, USA. In these cases, data can be transferred to the USA - a non-EU country without an adequate level of data protection, the meaning of Art. 46 GDPR. In its judgment of 16 July 2020, Case C-311/18 ("Schrems II"), the ECJ found that an adequate level of data protection cannot be guaranteed in the USA. On the one hand, there is a risk of access to the transferred data by US security authorities without the possibility of effective legal remedies. On the other hand, there are no enforceable data subject rights. The transfer therefore only takes place with your express consent on the basis of Art. 49 (1) a) GDPR. Detailed information about the collecting, processing and usage of the data by Trello you can find here: https://trello.com/privacy
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").
As part of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking.

For talent start-up matchmaking and contact data management, we use the mail service of Brevo GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin (formerly Sendinblue). For this purpose, the data provided by the user (including personal data) is processed.
Data processing is based on consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The user can revoke his or her consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

We use the Workspace Tool provided by Notion Labs, Inc, 548 Market St #74567, San Francisco, CA 94104-5401, United States ("Notion"). In particular, we use this tool to store contact details of our contractors and/or start-up team.
The data collected is stored on online storage provided by Notion ("Cloud"). Notion Labs complies with a sufficient level of protection (Binding Corporate Rules) and we have concluded a contract with Notion Labs with so-called standard contractual clauses in which they undertake to process user data only in accordance with our instructions and to comply with the EU level of data protection.

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR). Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. In addition, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which our company is subject (e.g. statutory retention periods). Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract. In the event of legal disputes, special statutory provisions may require a longer retention period, such as compliance with statutory limitation provisions. According to §§ 195 ff. of the German Civil Code (BGB), the regular limitation period for claims is between one and three years, but can also be up to thirty years.
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our Data Protection Officer. Our Data Protection Officer clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
