B. General information on data processing

 

1. Scope of the processing of personal data
We only process personal data of our users as is necessary to provide a functioning platform and to provide our content, videos and services, and while taking due regard to the legal basis as stipulated by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The legal basis can be a contractual obligation, our legitimate interest or specific consent provided by the individual user. Because prior consent cannot be obtained always, the processing of personal data requires a legal basis to be permitted.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
The individual has given her/his consent to the processing of her/his data for one or more specific purposes (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). It is necessary for entering into or performing a contract with the individual (Article 6 (1)(b) GDPR). It is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by the controller or a third party, except where these interests are overridden by the interests or the fundamental rights and freedoms of the individual which require protection of personal data (Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR).

3. Data deletion and storage

 

LivingBusiness will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the retention period for personal data, the amount, nature, sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements are considered.

C. Provision of the platform and creation of log files

1. Description, scope and purpose of data processing
Each time the LivingBusiness platform is accessed, the system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.

The following data is collected:

  • Information about the browser type and its version

  • The user’s operating system

  • The user’s internet service provider

  • The user’s IP address

  • Date and time of access

  • Platforms accessed by the user’s system through our platform
     

The temporary processing of the IP address is necessary in order to deliver the platform to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address needs to be saved for the duration of the usage.

The log-files are saved to ensure the functionality of our platform. This data enables us to optimise our platform and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. In this context, we will not process personal data for any other purposes.
 

2. Legal basis for the processing

3. Data storage
LivingBusiness will delete your data when the processing of the data is no longer required to fulfil the purposes we collected it for. When we process the data for the provision of our platform, your data will be deleted when the platform session ends.

When we process data in log files, we will generally delete the data 7 days after the processing. Extended storage is possible. In this case, the user’s IP address will be deleted or anonymised in order to prevent the identification of the user.
