13. Video conversation
For the video calls handled via MeetFox, our own self-hosted video system, which is based on the open source technology WebRTC and is encrypted, is used in the first place. To prevent any connection difficulties with certain end devices or software environments, we provide the user with a backup video solution provided by Twilio (Twilio Inc., 375 Beale Street, Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94105). Twilio is GDPR compliant. Each time you connect to the video chat server, a unique session ID is created that allows both parties to connect. In this process, no personal information is sent to the respective provider.
14. Mailings, SMS and notifications
As an email and SMS gateway we use the European provider Mailjet (Mailjet GmbH, Rankestrasse 21, 10789 Berlin, Germany). Mailjet is 27001 ISO and GDPR compliant. Coachfox will send automated notifications via email or optionally via SMS to users from the moment of registration at MeetFox, which serves to facilitate the successful and easier handling of the MeetFox functions. Emails sent via Mailjet include, for example, registration confirmations, notifications of appointment requests or received messages, appointment confirmations, appointment reminders and invoice deliveries.
15. Calendar synchronization
As an expert, you have the option to sync calendar with your Google Calendar. If you use this option, you allow Google Calendar to share your calendar information with us, with no title or calendar entry being transmitted, just the date, time, and duration. This is for the purpose of adequately presenting your calendar on your profile. Furthermore, the acceptance of MeetFox push entries must be activated to allow a successful calendar synchronization.
16. Web Analysis
Because we're committed to protecting your privacy, we do not use third-party web analytics systems, such as Google Analytics. Instead, we use a self-hosted system based on open source software for statistical analysis of visitor access and log files. Cookies are used and stored on your computer, which give us the opportunity to analyze the use of our website by you. The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and stored on our own servers. The data are for quality assurance and statistical purposes only.
17. Order data processing
Coachfox also provides companies with the above mentioned software as a white label solution. If MeetFox collects personal data in this context on behalf of the company, this is done only on behalf of and on the basis of a separate agreement on data processing in the order. In this case, the contracting entity, as the data protection officer, is responsible for compliance with data protection rules.
18. Disclosure of user data
Personal user data will only be forwarded to third parties with your express consent and for compelling legal reasons. All employees of MeetFox have signed a written statement prohibiting the disclosure of user data to third parties. Users agree to the disclosure of their data, as long as they are needed to process the desired MeetFox services. The transmitted data has been reduced to the required minimum. Only in the case of a statutory or by court order required obligation, data are passed on to information-entitled state institutions and authorities.
19. Duration of data storage
We store your data for the duration of your MeetFox account. However, you can cancel or block your MeetFox account at any time. We will then delete your data, unless we are legally obliged to further storage or retention.
