Data Subject Rights
Individuals have rights concerning their personal data. Please contact us by e-mail at: info(at)recoro.io if you wish to exercise your privacy rights under any applicable law, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) , the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP) or the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), such as – to the extent applicable – the right to request access to, and rectification or erasure of your personal data held with Recoro, or to restrict or object to such personal data’s processing, or to port such personal data (each to the extent available to you under the laws which apply to you).

We may redact from the data which we will make available to you, any personal data related to others.
Processing on Behalf of Business Customers
Our processing of personal data on behalf of our business customers as part of the Services is governed by our agreements with such customers. We process this data on behalf of our customers in our capacity as service providers (or “data processors”) to our customers. Our customers are “data controllers” (under the GDPR, the FADP and similar laws) with respect to that data. Our business customers are solely responsible for determining whether and how they wish to use
our Services, and for ensuring that all individuals using Recoro on the customers’ behalf or at their request have been provided with adequate notice and given informed consent to the processing of their personal data, where such consent is necessary or advised, and that all legal requirements applicable to the collection, recording, use or other processing of data through our Services are fully met by the business customers, including specifically in the context of an employment relationship. Our business customers are also responsible for handling data subject rights requests under applicable law, by their users and other individuals whose data they process through the Services.
Google Web Fonts
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
Contact management via Hubspot
On this website we use HubSpot for our online marketing activities. HubSpot is a software company from the USA (Hubspot, Inc. 25 First Street Cambridge, MA 02141 USA) with a branch in Ireland (HubSpot, 2nd Floor 30 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland). This is an integrated software solution that we use to cover various aspects of our online marketing. This includes contact management via the CRM system and the pop-up news on our website. In addition, to improve the user experience on our website, we use HubSpot’s live chat service „Messages“ (chat window) for sending and receiving messages on some sub-pages. Upon consent and use of this function, the following data is transmitted to HubSpot’s servers:
- Content of all chat messages sent and received.
- Context information (e.g. page on which the chat was used)
- Optional: e-mail address of the user (if provided by the user via the chat function).
The legal basis for the use of Hubspot’s services is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO.
HubSpot meets the minimum requirements for legally compliant commissioned data processing by concluding the EU standard data protection clause. In addition, there is a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) with HubSpot. This ensures that Hubspot only uses the user data within the scope of the EU data protection standards exclusively for processing the requests and does not pass them on to third parties without authorisation. Further information can be found at https://legal.hubspot.com/de/privacy-policy.
Based on our legitimate interests, we use components of the YouTube service, which is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA („YouTube“). YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the internet portal.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller is called up and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive information about which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting when a sub-page containing a YouTube video is called up. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her YouTube account before accessing our website.
We use the tool „Microsoft Teams“ to conduct telephone conferences, online meetings, video conferences and/or webinars (hereinafter: „online meetings“). „Microsoft Teams“ is a service of Microsoft Corporation.
Please note that this privacy notice only informs you about the processing of your personal data by us if you conduct online meetings together with us. Insofar as you access the „Microsoft Teams“ website, the „Microsoft Teams“ provider is responsible for data processing. If you require information about the processing of your personal data by Microsoft, please consult the relevant statement at Microsoft.
When using „Microsoft Teams“, various types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the data you provide before or when participating in an „online meeting“.
The following personal data are subject to processing:
- IP address
- User details: e.g. display name, e-mail address (if applicable), profile picture (optional), preferred language
- Meeting metadata: e.g. date, time, meeting ID, phone numbers, location
- Text, audio and video data: You may have the opportunity to use the chat function in an „online meeting“. In this respect, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the „online meeting“. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device are processed accordingly during the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the „Microsoft Teams“ apps
The legal basis for the processing of data when conducting „online meetings“ is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO, insofar as the meetings are conducted within the framework of contractual relationships.
If the processing of personal data is an elementary component of the use of „Microsoft Teams“, the legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. In these cases, our interest is in the effective implementation of „online meetings“.
Should no contractual relationship exist, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our interest here is in the effective implementation of „online meetings“.
We use personal data as necessary for the performance of our Services; to comply with our legal and contractual obligations; and to support our legitimate interests in maintaining and improving our Services, e.g. in understanding how our Services are used and how our campaigns are performing, and gaining insights which help us dedicate our resources and efforts more efficiently; in marketing, advertising and selling our Services; providing customer service and technical support; and protecting and securing our customers, users, visitors, prospects, ourselves and our Services.
When our service is used to record and transcript conversation, we process personal data of
- employees of our customers
- employees of our customers’ potential customers
- other participants in such conversations
on the basis of their freely declared consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
We process contact information (company, email, phone, physical business address), start time of the recording, end time of the recording and language in which conversations are held. We store and process the voice and transcript of the conversations. If video call services such as Zoom and MS Teams are used, video footage may be recorded if enabled and as such, to the extent of which is determined and controlled by them, may be revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation. Purpose of the data processing is to analyze and evaluate the conversation and to (automatically) advise our customer on the improvement of their sales process.
All participants who have consent to the recording, transcription and analyses of meetings and subsequent conversations and the transfer of respective data from our customers to us are entitled to withdraw the given consent at any time with effect for the future, Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR. The withdrawal can be given without reasons. To do so these data subjects can contact us by email at info(at)recoro.io. As a consequence of the revocation neither our customers nor recoro may continue to process the data based on this consent for the future.
Further, we use our Customers’ personal data for the following purposes:
To facilitate, operate, enhance, and provide our Services;
To train our customer and user-facing staff;
To provide our Customers and users with assistance and support;
To gain a better understanding on how individuals use and interact with our Sites and Services, and how we could improve their and others’ user experience, and continue improving our products, offerings and the overall performance of our Services;

To contact our Customers with general or personalized service-related messages, as well as promotional messages that may be of specific interest to them;
To facilitate, sponsor and offer certain events, contests and promotions;
To support and enhance our data security measures, including for the purposes of preventing and mitigating the risks of fraud, error or any illegal or prohibited activity;
