Which of my data are processed?

This information can all be changed or deleted at any time via the account settings. In order to provide the platform, some technical data is automatically collected. In detail:

Why is the data processed - and is that even allowed?

The platform provides tools for optimising in-house communication, knowledge management and operational improvement. Your employer has decided to use these features. For this to work both in terms of content and technology, the processing of the above information is necessary.
This also implies the lawfulness of the processing of the data - as an employer or contracting party it is permissible to process this information in the context of the contractual activity.

Who sees the data?

Each account is active in one or more networks. The basic data as well as some voluntary profile data are visible to all users in them. The visibility of the profile picture can be set in the account settings. Correspondence and the content of posts are visible to the individually defined recipients and recipient groups.
Due to hotelkit GmbH’s role as a technical service provider for the provision of the platform, individual hotelkit employees may receive information in the context of support inquiries or during the initial setup of the platform.
Beyond this, the information provided will not be passed on to anyone else.

Who is responsible for data processing - and who can I contact?

hotelkit GmbH has been commissioned by your employer to provide the platform on your employer’s behalf. For general questions about the "why" and "for what reason", or to safeguard your rights as a data subject, please contact your employer.
