Data Protection Declaration (Privacy Policy)

Data Protection

Your right to confidential treatment of your data and the requirements of the laws on the protection of personal data are regarded as a strict obligation at BeamYourScreen, which places all employees concerned with the processing of personal data under an obligation to maintain data secrecy pursuant to section 5 of the German Federal Data Protection Act [BDSG]. The following declaration indicates what this means in detail:

Visitor Data

When visiting a BeamYourScreen page, the user's computer IP address, browser and operating system, our visited page and pages previously visited on that computer, date and time, data volume sent, and technical status information are automatically recorded, saved, and made anonymous ("visitor data"). A personal user profile is not created.
Data is only collected for statistical purposes to improve the performance and user-friendliness of our website and products, as well as to increase the effectiveness of our marketing and advertising efforts. One of the tools we use for this analysis is Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). It uses small text files, or "cookies," that save your visitor data onto your computer when you visit our website. These cookies are automatically sent for analysis to Google Inc.'s server in the U.S.A. and are saved there. Google then creates reports on the use of BeamYourScreen pages for BeamYourScreen. Google will never use your IP address to collect any other known data that falls under this category. BeamYourScreen also uses cookies during user account login to accelerate technical processes. You may disable cookie storage on your computer by modifying your browser settings; however, this may impair website functionality in certain cases.

Customer Data/Inventory Data

The information provided by you on the occasion of an inquiry or a product order (in return for payment or for free) to BeamYourScreen will be stored solely for the purpose of processing the inquiry or order. For queries, this includes your name, e-mail address, and telephone number (in certain cases); for orders, this includes the customer's name, name of the customer's authorized employee (if applicable), e-mail address, phone number, mailing address, company name (if applicable), sales tax ID (if applicable), credit card data, and bank account details. This information will be recorded, saved, and only used for processing the query or order.

Use of Software, Data on Use

In the context of the mandatory setting up of the user account for the purchase and lease licenses, the following data are requested and electronically stored: name, company name and address of the Customer, first name and last name of the authorized user for the software, email address, and password.
In the context of the voluntary setting up of a user account for the private and non-commercial use of the Software for free, the following are electronically stored: first name and last name (pseudonyms may be used), email address, password. In the context of the use of the Software (session) by a Customer who has set up a user account, the following are also stored for the provision of the functions associated with the user account: start- and end-times of sessions, IP addresses and display names of session participants (i.e. the sending Customers of Magnocall and their respective receiving Participants), time of entry and exit of participants in sessions. The data referred to in this article ("Use of Software") are also absolutely necessary for the purpose of the planning of Software and server resources. It is not possible for BeamYourScreen to identify Participants from their IP addresses, neither will BeamYourScreen make any effort to do so. The data are also used for the purpose of protecting server services from abuse, and also for providing necessary customer services.


In the context of subscription to the Newsletter, your name (pseudonyms may also be given by the Customer) and email address are stored exclusively in order to provide you with information and news about our products by email.
