We use Microsoft Teams as a communication platform for conducting client meetings and law firm events.

"Microsoft Teams" is a service provided by Microsoft Corporation. Microsoft's current privacy policy can be viewed here:

https://privacy.microsoft.com/de-de/privacystatement

Only the personal data used by you for participation, i.e. user details such as display name ("Display Name"), e-mail address and profile picture, will be used to conduct the event. Furthermore, meeting metadata such as date, time, meeting ID, phone number and location are collected.

While using Microsoft Teams, the other participants of the meeting/event have access to the files you have posted (screen sharing) and comments (chat function), and when using the video and audio function, access to your image and voice as well as your display name and profile picture. While using Microsoft Teams, you can turn off both the microphone and the camera on your end device through the Microsoft Teams application to limit this access.

There is no recording or storage of the meeting/event. The processed personal data will be deleted immediately after the event.

The use of Microsoft Teams takes place within the framework of a contract for order processing. Microsoft thus processes personal data on our behalf. Accordingly, Microsoft may only use them in accordance with our instructions and for our purposes and not for its own purposes, i.e. neither for advertising nor to pass them on to third parties.

Data processing in relation to the use of Microsoft Teams outside the European Union (EU) does not take place in principle, as we have restricted our storage location to data centers in the European Union. However, we cannot exclude the possibility that U.S. investigative authorities may have access to data processed by Microsoft under U.S. law.

The legal basis for the commissioned processing is Art. 28 DSGVO. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted and stored via Microsoft Teams in the course of participation in a meeting and/or client event is Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO.
