Privacy policy

Privacy policy of the MPDV Group

Last modified: October 2023

The protection of your privacy is very important to us. For this reason we process personal data in accordance with the requirements of the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other legal requirements. The following notes in our privacy policy are intended to provide you with comprehensive information about the handling of your personal data as well as your rights in this context.

Please note that this privacy policy applies to the corporate websites of the entire MPDV Group. Therefore, not all of the processing described necessarily applies to the website you are currently visiting. The privacy policy differentiates between responsibilities and clearly and transparently indicates which processing occurs on which website within the group of companies. Depending on the website visited, the controller with responsibility for data protection also differs. Which company is the data controller depends on the website you visit.

1. The MPDV Group and its companies as data controllers:

E-Mail: info@felten-group.com

2. Web server logging [applies to all company websites of the MPDV Group]

When our web server is visited and the content provided is retrieved, our web servers store each access in a log file for statistical and system-related purposes. The logs contain the following information:

  • IP address, time stamp (date and time of access) of the requesting computer
  • Web pages/file names accessed
  • Web browser and operating system of the requesting computer
  • Amount of data transferred and notification of successful retrieval

This data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to defend against attempted attacks on our web servers. Only in the event of an attack on our systems will the stored IP address be analyzed (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1. f) GDPR). No association is made between a natural person and this stored usage data.

Server log files are not stored in complete form. The IP address of the visitor is transmitted when a page request is sent, anonymized directly after transmission and processed without personal reference. The data anonymized in this way is stored for up to 3 years or until the contract is terminated, if this occurs earlier.

3. Error logs [applies to all company websites of the MPDV Group]

So-called error logs are created for the purpose of error identification and correction. This is essential in order to be able to react to possible problems in the presentation and implementation of content as promptly as possible (legitimate interest). This data is usually pseudonymous and therefore does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a natural person. The legal basis for this is § 15 para. 1 TMG [Telemedia Act] as well as Art. 6. para. 1 S. 1 f) GDPR. When an error message occurs, general data is recorded such as the domain name of the website, the web browser and web browser version, the operating system, the IP address and the timestamp when the corresponding error message/specification occurred.

See Section 2 above for information about the storage period of error logs.

By registering with us to receive information and news from the MPDV Group by email, you consent to us processing the data you provide in the registration form solely for the purpose of sending and personalizing emails with information from the MPDV Group. In order to evaluate and improve the newsletter, we analyze the opening and click-through rates. Furthermore, you consent to us transmitting your personal data for the same purpose to our subsidiary Perfect Production GmbH, Gewerbepark Hardtwald 6, 68723 Oftersheim, 06202 9335-550, info@perfect-production.de.

This confirmation e-mail is necessary so we can verify you are the owner of the e-mail address entered. Only after clicking on this link will your registration become effective.

The data processing described above is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 a) GDPR.

For sending emails with information from the MPDV Group, we, and our subsidiary, use a newsletter management tool from CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Schafjückenweg 2 in 26180 Rastede. We have carefully selected CleverReach and made data protection arrangements with it so that we retain sovereignty over your data.

At the end of each e-mail bulletin from the MPDV Group, you will find a link that allows you to unsubscribe from these e-mails at any time. To do this, you can also contact us at the address given below.

In the case of satisfaction surveys following training and education, the name and contact details can be provided voluntarily (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 a) GDPR).

In following up support orders, satisfaction surveys are offered to the client. The data is used for continuous further development and quality assurance on the basis of a legitimate interest of MPDV (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) GDPR in conjunction with. § 7 para. 3 UWG) and deleted after one year.

For the implementation of online satisfaction surveys, the MPDV Group uses the service of Netigate GmbH, which may also have access to personal data as part of its data processing. We have carefully selected this service provider and have made data protection arrangements with them so that we retain sovereignty over your data.

11. Online seminars [applies to the company website of Perfect Production GmbH]

We use the tool „GoToWebinar“ to conduct webinars („online meetings“). „GoToWebinar“ is a service provided by GoTo Technologies Ireland Unlimited Company, The Reflector, 10 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, D02R573, Ireland.

When using „GoToWebinar“, various types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the data you provide before or during participation in an „online meeting“. The following personal data is subject to processing:

  • Userdetails: first name, last name, telephone (optional), e-mail address, password (if „single sign-on“ is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional)
  • Meeting metadata: Topic, description (optional), attendee IP addresses, device/hardware information
  • For recordings (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of online meeting chats.
  • For dial-in with the telephone: information on the incoming and outgoing call number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, additional connection data such as the device IP address may be stored.
  • Text, audio and video data: You may have the opportunity to use the chat, question or survey functions in an „online meeting“. To this extent, your text input is processed in order to display it in the „online meeting“ and, if necessary, to log it. To enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from your device’s microphone and from any video camera your device has will be processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the „GoToWebinar“ applications.

If we want to record online meetings, we will inform you transparently in advance and ask for your consent. The fact that recording is taking place will also be displayed in the app.

If necessary for the purpose of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content.

In the case of online seminars, we may also process questions asked by online seminar participants for the purposes of recording and following up on webinars.

If you are a registered „GoTo” user, then reports of „online meetings“ (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) may be stored by „GoTo“ for up to one month.

The legal basis for data processing when conducting „online meetings“ is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b) GDPR, insofar as the meetings are conducted in the context of contractual relationships.

Should no contractual relationship exist, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) GDPR. Here, too, our interest is in the effective conduct of „online meetings“.

Personal data processed in connection with participation in „online meetings“ will not be disclosed to third parties as a matter of principle, unless it is intended to be passed on. The provider necessarily obtains knowledge of the above-mentioned data insofar as this is provided for in the context of our data processing agreement.

In the course of processing, data may be transmitted to the USA. The security of the data transfer is ensured via so-called standard contractual clauses, which guarantee that the processing of personal data is subject to a level of security that corresponds to that of the GDPR. We have concluded a data processing contract with the service provider that complies with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR.
