MES' Live Webinars

We use Cisco WebEx Meeting Center for the streaming and registration management of the MES Webinar Series. The data entered during registration is stored in the Cisco WebEx Meeting Center and is transferred to the MES customer database (Projektron BCS) and processed for the corresponding purposes. Please note that Cisco WebEx Meeting stores your IP address. However, we do not store this information in our CRM program or in any other way.

We use customer surveys and online or print evaluation forms in order to improve the quality and to measure the effectiveness of our events, webinars, training classes or similar. The questions mentioned in the surveys/evaluation forms and corresponding answers are collected and processed. This data is used for analysis and statistics. In the case of certain surveys/evaluations, the data is immediately anonymized. A request for information is not possible in the case of anonymous surveys/evaluations, as the data collected cannot be traced to a survey respondent and/or the person requesting information in any way.

If the surveys/evaluations are not completely anonymized, the persons participating in the survey will be expressly informed of this in advance. The legal basis for processing this data rests on your active consent to participate in our surveys or evaluation forms. The data collected will be treated with appropriate sensitivity and confidentiality. If there is no longer a legal basis to collect or process the data and the data is not anonymized, it will be deleted immediately. Print copies will be shredded or otherwise destroyed immediately.

Evaluation requests from customers are entered into our CRM program (Projektron BCS) and are only carried out on request or due to purchase orders or commissions. Article (Art. 6 lit. b) of the GDPR is the legal basis for data processing in this case.

Regarding surveys and evaluations conducted via Cisco WebEx Meeting, the corresponding data protection provisions of the third-party provider apply. As in the case of webinars, the data is also taken from MES to carry out a survey or evaluation and stored anonymously. Please note that Cisco WebEx Meeting stores your IP address.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

Tags are code elements and snippets that are available by default (also from third parties) or that can be created by the responsible persons themselves. Rules control when certain tags should be triggered or when certain tags should not be triggered.

The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, but cannot access data about the users of this website. Since no cookies are stored, we cannot and do not process any personal data.

A request for information is not possible here, as no conclusions can be drawn between the data collected and the person requesting information.

Google AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of the online advertising program, we use conversion tracking. After an ad placed by Google is clicked on, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device.

The cookie enables Google and us to recognize that you have clicked on an ad and been redirected to our website.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies are not trackable through websites of AdWords customers. Conversion cookies are used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. AdWords customers learn how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with conversion tracking tags. However, AdWords' customers do not receive any information that allows users to be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to it. In this case, the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of your browser. This will prevent you from being included in the conversion tracking statistics.

The "conversion cookies" are stored due to the legal basis mentioned above. As the operators of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and our advertising.

More details and information regarding Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in the Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.
