ACE International GmbH

What is it about?

This privacy policy meets the legal requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. This is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, e-mail address, IP address or user behavior when visiting a website. Information for which we cannot (or can only with a disproportionate effort) establish a reference to your person, e.g. by anonymization, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis and a defined purpose.

Stored personal data are deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no legitimate grounds for further storage of the data. We will inform you in the individual processing operations about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage. Irrespective of this, we store your personal in individual cases for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and if there are statutory retention obligations.

Who gets my data?

We only disclose your personal data that we process on our website to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes and is covered by the legal basis in the individual case (e.g. consent or safeguarding legitimate interests). In addition, we disclose personal data to third parties in individual cases if this serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims. Possible recipients may then be, for example, law enforcement agencies, lawyers, auditors, courts, etc.

Insofar as we use service providers for the operation of our website, who process personal data on our behalf within the scope of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, they may be recipients of your personal data. For more information on the use of processors and web services, please refer to the overview of the individual processing operations.

Provision of the website

Nature and scope of processing

When you call up and use our website, we collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to our server. The following information is stored temporarily in a so-called log file:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of access
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file
  • Website from which the access is made (referrer URL)
  • Browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer, as well as the name of your access provider

Our website is not hosted by ourselves, but by a service provider who processes the aforementioned data on our behalf in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

Purpose and legal basis

The processing is carried out to protect our overriding legitimate interest to display our website and ensure security and stability on the basis of Art. 6 para. lit. f GDPR. The collection of data and storage in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is no right to object to the processing due to the exception under Art. 21 (1) GDPR. Insofar as the further storage of log files is required by law, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide the data, however, calling up our website is technically not possible without providing the data.

Storage duration

The aforementioned data will be stored for the duration of the website display and for technical reasons beyond that for a maximum of 14 days.

Presence on social media platforms

We maintain so-called fan pages or accounts or channels on the networks mentioned below in order to provide you with information and offers also within social networks and to offer you further ways to contact us and to inform yourself about our offers. In the following, we inform you about which data we or the respective social network process from you in connection with the call and use of our fan pages/accounts.

Data that we process from you
If you wish to contact us via messenger or direct message via the respective social network, we generally process your user name via which you contact us and, if necessary, store other data provided by you insofar as this is required to process/respond to your request.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR (processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller).

(Static) usage data that we receive from the social networks
We receive automated statistics regarding our accounts via Insights functionalities. The statistics include, among other things, the total number of page views, likes, page activity and post interactions, reach, video views, and the percentage of men/women among our fans/followers.

The statistics only contain aggregated data that cannot be related to individual persons. You are not identifiable to us through this.

What data the social networks process from you
In order to view the content of our fan pages or accounts, you do not have to be a member of the respective social network and, in this respect, no user account for the respective social network is required.

Please note, however, that the social networks also collect and store data from website visitors without a user account when the respective social network is called up (e.g. technical data in order to be able to display the website to you) and use cookies and similar technologies, over which we have no control. Details on this can be found in the privacy policy of the respective social network (see the corresponding links above)

Insofar as you wish to interact with the content on our fan pages/accounts, e.g. comment on, share or like our postings/contributions and/or contact us via messenger functions, prior registration with the respective social network and the provision of personal data is required.

We have no influence on the data processing by the social networks within the scope of their use by you. To our knowledge, your data is stored and processed in particular in connection with the provision of the services of the respective social network, as well as for the analysis of user behavior (using cookies, pixels/web beacons and similar technologies), on the basis of which advertising based on your interests is played both within and outside the respective social network. It cannot be ruled out that your data will be stored by the social networks outside the EU/EEA and passed on to third parties.

Information on, among other things, the exact scope and purposes of the processing of your personal data, the storage period/deletion as well as guidelines on the use of cookies and similar technologies in the context of registration and use of the social networks can be found in the privacy policy/cookie policy of the social networks. There you will also find information on your rights and objection options.

LinkedIn page

LinkedIn is a social network of LinkedIn Inc. based in Sunnyvale, California, USA, which enables the creation of private as well as professional profiles of natural persons and company profiles. Users can maintain their existing contacts and make new ones within the social network. Businesses and other organizations can create profiles that upload photos and other company information to present themselves as employers and hire employees. Other LinkedIn users have access to this information and can write their own articles and share this content with others. The network’s focus is on professional exchanges on specialized topics with people who share the same professional interests.

When using or visiting the network, LinkedIn automatically collects data from the users or visitors during the use or visit, for example user name, job title and IP address. This is done with the help of various tracking technologies. LinkedIn provides benefits with information, offers and recommendations based on the data collected in this way, among other things.

We collect your data via our company profile only to realize a possible provision for communication and interaction with us. This collection usually includes your name, message content, comment content, and the profile information you provide “publicly”.

The processing of your personal data for our above-mentioned purposes is based on our legitimate business and communicative interest in offering an information and communication channel pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR. Should you, as a user, have given your consent to the data processing vis-à-vis the respective provider of the social network, the legal basis of the processing extends to Art. 6 para. 1 a, Art. 7 GDPR.

Due to the fact that the actual data processing is carried out by the provider of the social network, our access to your data is limited. Only the provider of the social network is authorized to fully access your data. Due to this, only the provider can directly take and implement appropriate measures to fulfill your user rights (information request, deletion request, objection, etc.). The assertion of corresponding rights is therefore most effective directly against the respective provider.

We are jointly responsible with LinkedIn for the personal content of our company profile. Data subject rights can be asserted with LinkedIn Inc. as well as with us. We do not make any decisions regarding the data collected on LinkedIn’s site using tracking technologies.

Data Protection Notice for the Use of “Web Conference Tools” of ACE International GmbH

We would like to inform you below about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of “Zoom”, “Teams” or similar services.

Purpose of processing

We use tools such as “Zoom”, “Teams” or similar services to conduct conference calls, online meetings, video conferences and/or webinars (hereinafter: “Online Meetings”).


The data controller for data processing directly related to the conduct of “Online Meetings” is
ACE International GmbH.

Note: Insofar as you call up the website of “Zoom”, the provider of “Zoom” is responsible for data processing. However, calling up the Internet page is only necessary for the use of “Zoom” in order to download the software for the use of “Zoom”.

You can use “Zoom” or “Teams” if you enter the respective meeting ID and, if necessary, further access data for the meeting directly in the “Zoom” or “Teams” app.

If you do not want to or cannot use the “Zoom” app, then the basic functions can also be used via a browser version, which you can also find on the “Zoom” website.

What data is processed?

When using “Zoom”, “Teams” or similar services, 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 are subject to processing:

User details: first name, last name, phone (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, a text file of the online meeting chat.

When dialing in with the telephone: information on the incoming and outgoing call number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be stored.

 Text, audio and video data: You may have the option of using the chat, question or survey functions in an “online meeting”. To this extent, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the “online meeting” and, if necessary, to log them. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device will be processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the “Zoom” applications.

To participate in an “online meeting” or to enter the “meeting room”, you must at least provide information about your name.

Scope of processing

We use “Zoom” “Teams” or similar services to conduct “Online Meetings”. If we want to record “online meetings”, we will transparently communicate this to you in advance and – if necessary – ask for consent. If a recording of the meeting takes place, this will additionally be displayed to you in the “Zoom” as well as “Teams” app.

If it is necessary for the purposes of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will usually not be the case.

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

If you are registered as a user at “Zoom” or “Teams”, then reports on “Online Meetings” (meeting metadata, phone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored at “Zoom” for up to one month.

The option of software-based “attention monitoring” (“attention tracking”) that exists in “Online Meeting” tools such as “Zoom” is deactivated.

Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 GDPR is not used.

Legal bases of data processing

Insofar as personal data of employees of ACE International GmbH is processed, Section 26 BDSG is the legal basis for the data processing. If, in connection with the use of “Zoom” or “Teams”, personal data is not required for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component in the use of “Zoom”, Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR is the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, our interest is in the effective implementation of “online meetings”.

Incidentally, the legal basis for data processing when conducting “online meetings” is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR, insofar as the meetings are conducted in the context of contractual relationships.

If there is no contractual relationship, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Here, too, our interest is in the effective implementation of “online meetings”.

Recipient / passing on of data

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 specifically intended for disclosure. Please note that the content of “online meetings”, as well as personal meetings, is often used to communicate information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on.

Other recipients: The provider of “Zoom” necessarily obtains knowledge of the above data to the extent provided for in our order processing agreement with “Zoom”.

Data processing outside the European Union

“Zoom” is a service provided by a provider from the USA. A processing of personal data therefore also takes place in a third country.

An adequate level of data protection is guaranteed by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.
