In the following we provide information about the collection of personal data when using ARGUS Spot for Microsoft Teams. Personal data is all data that has reference to you as a person, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour. We have taken extensive technical and operational safeguards to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.


1.     Responsible for data processing (controller)

The controller pursuant to Art. 4 (7) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is ARGUS DATA INSIGHTS Deutschland GmbH, Gneisenaustraße 66, 10961 Berlin (see our imprint).

3.     Your rights

You have the following rights with respect to the personal data concerning you:


3.1.   General rights

You have a right to information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, opposition to processing and data portability. If processing is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke it with effect for the future.


3.2.   Rights regarding processing of data according to legitimate interests

Pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, you have the right at any time, for reasons arising out of your particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data relating to you, which takes place pursuant to Art. 6 (1) GDPR (data processing in the public interest) or Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (data processing for the protection of a legitimate interest); this also applies to profiling based on this provision. In the event of your objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purpose of enforcing, pursuing or defending legal claims.


3.3.   Rights regarding direct marketing

If we process your personal data to carry out direct marketing, you have the right pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing.

In the event of your objection to processing for the purpose of direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.


3.4.   Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

You also have the right to lodge a complaint about us regarding our processing of your personal data with a competent data protection supervisory authority.


4.     Holding Online Seminars with Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Forms

We use the Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Forms software solutions (Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA) to run online seminars. You can take part in an online seminar if you have previously registered using the corresponding link in the invitation email. The following personal data is requested for this purpose: first name, last name, company, email address. We exclusively use this data to run the online seminar. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR. An encrypted connection is established between you and Microsoft. Recordings are only made with the explicit verbal consent of all participants prior to the recording starting. If you take part in an online seminar, we will be notified about the duration of participation in addition to your registration data. We will ask for your feedback on the online seminar afterwards via the Microsoft Forms web form software. The questions asked and – optionally – answers given are used for the purpose of your further support as our customer or to improve the experience for you as a user. The surveys are anonymous and do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about individual persons. However, you have the option of leaving us your name and contact details in the comment fields if you want us to contact you; this information will then be merged with the existing data that we have stored about you as a customer. Other external participants (up to 20) and participating company employees will be able to see your name during the online seminar and interact with you.


By clicking on ‘Join’, you confirm that you will not be recording or taking screenshots of the session.


For us to be able to hold the webinar, your data will be transmitted to the service provider Microsoft. Microsoft may only use your data on our behalf in order for us to be able to hold the online seminar. Microsoft also collects your data as the responsible company in order to provide the service. As an example, this may include data that is automatically processed when you use the service (for example data related to the use of the service or data that is processed using cookies), data that is collected using website navigation files, location data, data relating to the web browser or IP data for the device.
