EIZO Europe GmbH
You can generally use our website without providing any personal data. If a data subject wishes to use our company’s services via our website, personal data may have to be processed. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will always obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data (e.g., name, address, e-mail address or shortened IP addresses of a data subject) is always in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with our country-specific data protection regulations.
As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible of personal data processed through our website. However, data transmissions over the Internet can generally contain security holes. Thus, 100% protection cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, of course, any data subject can also transmit personal data by phone, for example.

These events are conducted via the online application "GoToWebinar". "GoToWebinar" is a service of GoTo Technologies Ireland Unlimited Company, The Reflector, 10 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, D02R573 Ireland.
Necessary data for registration and implementation of online events (webinars) are collected and processed. The collection and processing of this data usually takes place exclusively in the GoToWebinar SaaS application, to which EIZO employees have access and use the data to conduct the webinar. Any additional permission to use the registration data outside the GoTo Webinar SaaS application is requested separately during the registration process and can be optionally selected by the user. In addition to the registration data such as name and e-mail address, depending on the event, additional data may be requested, which enables the organizer EIZO to realize a better event optimized for the audience. However, these inputs are voluntary and marked accordingly during registration. A detailed list of the technical configuration of GoTo Webinar can be found here: https://www.goto.com/-/media/PDFs/trust%20-%20resource%20center/DE/GoToMeeting-GoToWebinar-GoToTraining-TOMs-de-pdf
A call to the "GoToWebinar" website is required to use "GoToWebinar" for two purposes:
You can also use "GoToWebinar" if you use the "GoToWebinar" app and enter your webinar credentials there. If you do not want to or cannot use the "GoToWebinar" app, then the functions can also be used via a browser version, which you can also find on the "GoToWebinar" website.
Scope of processing
We use "GoToWebinar" to conduct webinars. Recording of webinars is technically possible, but is not done on a regular basis. If we want to record the webinar in which you participate, we will transparently inform you in advance and - if necessary - ask for your consent. The fact of the recording will also be displayed to you in the "GoToWebinar" application.
Participants are prohibited from making recordings of any kind of the webinar. Sound, image or text data may not be recorded, copied or stored. By entering the virtual webinar room, you confirm this.
When necessary for the purposes of logging the results of a webinar, we will log chat content. However, this will generally not be the case.
For purposes of following up on webinars, we may also process questions asked by webinar participants.
Furthermore, in addition to your registration data, we receive information about the duration of participation, interest in the webinar, and questions asked or answers provided.
Automated decision-making in the sense of Art. 22 DSGVO is not used.
Legal basis of data processing
The legal basis for data processing when conducting webinars is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.
Receivers / disclosure of data
Personal data processed in connection with participation in webinars will not be disclosed to third parties as a matter of principle, unless it is specifically intended for disclosure.
Other recipients: the provider of "GoToWebinar", LogMeIn, Inc, necessarily obtains knowledge of the above-mentioned data to the extent provided for in our order processing agreement with "GoToWebinar". This provider also uses subcontracted processors. The company provides an up-to-date list of these sub-processors on its website https://www.goto.com/-/media/PDFs/trust%20-%20resource%20center/GTM-GTW-GTT_Subprocessor-List-pdf.

6. Further information on the legal basis of processing data
Art. 6 I (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for EIZO Europe GmbH for processing operations that require obtaining consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is required to execute a contract of which the data subject is a party, the data will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 I (b) GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example, in the case of inquiries about our services and products. If EIZO Europe GmbH is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, the data will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 I (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. In this case, the data will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 I (d) GDPR. Furthermore, processing operations may be based on Art. 6 I (f) GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of EIZO Europe GmbH or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject prevail. We are permitted such processing operations in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator (see recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).

These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user clicked the ad and was redirected to this page.
Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers.

For this purpose, the interaction of the users on our website is analyzed, e.g. which product areas the user was interested in, in order to be able to display targeted advertising to the users on other sites even after they have visited our website. For this purpose, Google stores cookies on the end devices of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network.
