ADVERTISING AND ANALYTICS SERVICES PROVIDED BY OTHERS

We may allow others to provide analytics services and serve advertisements on our behalf across the web and in mobile applications. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers, and other tracking technologies which collect information about your use of our services and other websites and applications. This information may be used by TeamViewer and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interest on our services and other websites, and better understand your online activity.

Such tools include:

1. Google Analytics and Other Analysis Tools Provided by Google

TeamViewer uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, or any other Affiliate of Google LLC (“Google“). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of our website. When you visit our website for the first time, you will be assigned a cookie with a unique user identification, i.e. a Google Analytics Client ID. We may replace this Google Analytics Client ID with your TeamViewer Device ID if you use one of our products (please refer to our Product Privacy Policy for details). We will add the respective data point to the data available in the Google Analytics tools, and this way we use Google Analytics also for cross-device analyses of user streams.

Other tools we use in this context that are also provided by Google include:

  • Google Tag Manager (a tag management system that allows TeamViewer to quickly and easily update tracking codes and related code fragments collectively known as “tags” on our website or mobile app);
  • Google Big Query (an enterprise data warehouse that enables SQL queries using the processing power of Google’s infrastructure; TeamViewer uses Big Query to store and query data sets which are collected by Google services such as Google Analytics, and the Big Query data is used to build flexible reports for evaluating our website performance);
  • Google Display Network (used to measure the impact of unclicked Google Display Network ad impressions on the website, behavior of users, and conversions; please refer to https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3105620 for further information); and
  • Google Optimize (for A/B testing, offering to analyze user behavior by showing slightly varied website contents to different user groups, depending on profile matching; thereby, TeamViewer analyzes its online services, improves its web offerings, and can create an interesting user journey).

TeamViewer Group uses data gathered through your Google Analytics Client ID as well as other data generated from Google’s web analytics applications in order to perform analyses of your interactions with our products, services, and websites. With the help of Google’s Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, we will receive analyses on our users’ age, gender, and interest categories (please refer to https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2799357?hl=en for further information). We strive to offer you tailored products and services that are best suited for your individual circumstances. To that end, Google provides us with insights and statistics that help us to make our online presence, our communications to you, and ultimately our products more interesting and relevant for you.

As further explained in our Cookies Policy, you may block cookies from being stored on your device, and consequently prevent the described analyses from being conducted, by adjusting the settings in your browser software; however, in such case, you may not be able to use all of the features and functionalities of our website. You can also block the collection of the data generated by the cookie and the data related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing a browser plugin available from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Please visit the website https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en for an overview on Google’s approach on data protection for Google Analytics as well as their privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

2. Demandbase

TeamViewer uses web analytics services provided by Demandbase Inc., located at 680 Folsom Street, Suite 400 San Francisco, CA 94107 USA. Demandbase utilizes tracking technology, which includes the storing and accessing of cookies, to collect data about website visitors. Demandbase’s Tags, or JavaScript, pixels, cookies or other similar technology or code, cause a unique cookie ID to be associated with each visitor who accesses our website and may sync with third-party cookies. Demandbase’s Tags on our website may collect data on device information (such as a website visitor’s IP address), cookies, or other technical information (such as web browser type, operating system or timestamp).

The Demandbase Tags are used for analytics and advertising services provided by Demandbase. They are also used for performance and optimization of Demandbase data and reporting. Demandbase’s services help us tailor our communications and improve the quality of the content we provide to our prospects, users, and customers. It also helps to improve our website user experience and performance by personalizing and optimizing the website for visitors.

3. Google AdWords Conversion and Google Remarketing

TeamViewer’s website uses Google AdWords in order to generate attention for our products and services by conducting targeted advertising campaigns on third-party websites and apps. Data generated by such campaigns helps us to determine the success rate of individual campaigns. TeamViewer aims at providing you with advertisement that is of interest to you, to make its website more interesting, and calculate advertising expenses accurately.

Such means of advertisement are delivered by Google through a so-called Ad Server. Along with this, TeamViewer uses Ad Server Cookies, which scale certain parameters, such as display of ads or clicks by users. When you click on an ad delivered by Google that redirects you to our website, a cookie is stored on your computer by Google AdWords. These cookies usually expire within 30 days and are not supposed to be used to personally identify a user. In addition to these cookies, analytic values like a unique cookie ID, quantity of Ad impressions per storing, last impression and opt-out information (markings that the user does not want to be addressed any further) are usually stored. These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser.

If you visit certain pages on our website and provided the cookie stored on your computer has not yet expired, TeamViewer and Google are able to recognize that you clicked on an ad and were redirected to the TeamViewer website. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked across different sites by TeamViewer, as is the case for all other AdWords customers. TeamViewer merely receives statistical evaluations from Google. By and through these statistical evaluations, we can evaluate which advertisement campaign was particularly effective. Any additional data generated by the particular advertisement is not forwarded to TeamViewer; particularly, we cannot personally identify users through this information.

Through this (re-)marketing tool, your browser automatically connects to Google’s servers. Please note that scope and further use of the data processed by Google are subject to Google’s privacy policy and beyond TeamViewer’s control. We thus inform you based on our own knowledge: By integrating AdWords, Google receives information that you visited a particular TeamViewer website or part thereof, and/or that you clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with one of Google’s services, Google is able to match your visit to your Google account. Google may receive your IP address and/or may store it even if you are not registered with one of Google’s services and/or if you have not been logged in. You may avoid tracking in various ways, e.g. through:

  • a setting of your browser software, particularly, by suppressing third party cookie installation in order to prevent receiving third-party ads;
  • deactivating AdWords Cookies, by setting your browser so that cookies from www.googleadservices.com are being blocked; this can be done at https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous, however, such settings are deleted if you delete cookies; or
  • permanently deactivating cookies in your browser under https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996.

Further information on Google’s approach to data privacy can be found under https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en. Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies for interest-based advertising via the advertising network initiative, by following the instructions at https://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1#!%2F.

In addition to Google AdWords, TeamViewer uses the tool “Google Remarketing.” This is an application that allows us to address you again, even when you have left our website. After visiting our website and while you are surfing the internet, our advertisement can be displayed to you by and through this application. This is enabled by cookies stored on your device, which track and analyze user behavior on different websites for Google. Google can track your previous visits to our website.

According to its own statement, Google does not combine data gathered through Remarketing with any personal data Google may have stored about you. Furthermore, the data processed for these purposes is generally limited to pseudonymous information. If you do not want to be exposed to data processing through the Google Remarketing feature, you can disable it by changing the appropriate settings at https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous.

4. Social Media Tracking Tools, including “Tracking Pixels”

We also use other tools on our website allowing us to offer you a more personalized and engaged web experience by offering you advertisements on your social media channels that are more relevant to you. To that end, we use cookie-based (please refer again to our Cookies Policy) tools offered by the following third-party social media providers:

In each case, we integrate snippets of code provided by these social media operators that load a small library of functions (sometimes referred to as “tracking pixels”, i.e. transparent, pixel-sized images embedded in websites with a tracking functionality). These functions enable us to track your activities on our website, such as URLs visited, domains visited, device(s) used, and, in particular advertising conversions (i.e. actions counted when you interact with one of our ads, such as clicking it and purchasing our product afterwards). They rely on cookies placed by the mentioned third-party providers, which may also enable us to match our website visitors to respective user accounts on the respective social media platforms.

We may also use the “Custom Audience” service provided by Facebook Inc., for delivering targeted advertising to you. In this context, we would check whether you hold an account with Facebook for which you use the same email-address that you have provided to us and include you in a corresponding “custom audience” group. This works by us providing your email-address to Facebook Inc. in a hashed format, and this way making sure that Facebook will only process, as a data processor on our behalf, actual email-addresses of users that have already subscribed to their service (please refer to https://www.facebook.com/business/help/112061095610075?id=2469097953376494&helpref=faq_content for further information on this process). You may opt-out of receiving targeted ads because you are part of a custom audience created by TeamViewer through clicking a corresponding link when you select the “Why am I seeing this?” feature on the Facebook platform (see https://www.facebook.com/help/562973647153813?helpref=about_content).

Like many websites, TeamViewer uses “cookies” to analyze visits to our website and help us improve our website and services. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually set your browser to remove or reject cookies. Please follow your browser’s process for doing so. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our websites. For detailed information on the cookies we use and the purpose for which we use them, see our Cookies Policy.

 

RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA

Your personal data will be deleted once you withdraw consent, or, more generally, once the purpose for processing has ceased to exist. In some cases, TeamViewer is legally obligated to retain data for a certain period. Once this period has lapsed, TeamViewer will delete the data in accordance with data protection obligations.

 

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

TeamViewer’s services are not intended for children under the age of 18. TeamViewer does not target our services to children under 18.

 

THIRD PARTY SITES

Please note that our websites contain links to third-party websites that are not controlled or operated by TeamViewer. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that TeamViewer does not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please review these policies before you disclose any personal data when visiting such third-party websites.

 

SECURITY PRACTICES

We take the safety of your personal data and its confidentiality very seriously and we provide reasonable security safeguards commensurate to the sensitivity of the personal data being handled and have implemented security practices including but not limited to technical, operational, and physical safeguards to protect your information. We implement a variety of security measures when entering, submitting, or accessing information to maintain the safety of your personal data. The website is scanned on a regular basis for any known vulnerabilities in order to make your use as safe as possible.

Your personal data is contained behind secured networks and it only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems or otherwise require personal data for appropriate purposes. These persons are also under an obligation to keep such personal data confidential. All of the data centers TeamViewer uses have achieved ISO/IEC 27001 certification, which is the international standard for information security management systems and security controls. The data centers have implemented state-of-the-art security controls, which means that personal access control, video camera surveillance, motion detectors, 24×7 monitoring, and on-site security personnel ensure access to the data center is only granted to authorized persons and guarantee the best possible security for hardware and data. There is also a detailed identification check at the single point-of-entry to the data center.

Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for your personal data, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

We endeavor to ensure that all third-party service providers whose services which we may use, maintain security standards that are equivalent to our security standards and commensurate with market practices, in the context of the kind and nature of personal data being stored or handled.

For more information, you may visit the TeamViewer Trust Center or request for a copy of our Security Measures

  • Personal data in connection with our agreement with you, e.g., your contact information. More information on this and how we process personal data as controllers for maintaining our contractual relationship with our users and customers can be found in our General Privacy Notice.
  • Personal data in connection with your account (e.g., your email, password, username etc.), as well as with various TeamViewer Features, esp. initiating connections, hosting of your contact lists, or managing a team of people using our Product under your license. In this context TeamViewer may act as processors as defined under the Art. 4 no. 8 GDPR. More on processing in this context can be found in our DPA, respectively in its Annexes.
  • Personal data derived from your use of our Products and Services, e.g., your feedback, as well as statistical and analytical data for marketing and product development purposes. In this case TeamViewer may act as controller of such data. This Privacy Notice serves the purpose to provide more information in this context.

Below you will find more information on when, how, and why we process your personal data in connection with your use of our Product.

A. Controller

TeamViewer Germany GmbH (“TeamViewer”), Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany is controller pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR concerning any processing of personal data for which we determine the purpose and means of processing.

B. Data Protection Officer (DPO)

TeamViewer appointed an external data protection officer (DPO). In addition, TeamViewer established a dedicated Privacy team, which closely collaborates with the DPO. The Privacy team as well as the DPO can be reached at privacy@teamviewer.com or, at TeamViewer Germany GmbH, for the confidential attention of the DPO, Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany.

C. Categories of personal data, as well as purposes and legal basis for the processing

  • C.1. When you use TeamViewer Remote Access and Control

    • C.1.1. Getting started

      When you install the Software and use the Product for the first time on a new device, we need to collect certain information from that device, such as your device’s MAC address, combined with other device-related information to ensure its uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Software installed.

      When you sign up for a TeamViewer account, TeamViewer collects your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date and time zone of you signing in and creates a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account. Should you choose to add the additional security option of two factor authentication to your account, TeamViewer will process the data required to provide this option and to maintain your accounts security including: Number of login attempts, location and whether the session is active, Mobile phone number, TeamViewer ID.

Learn more

During the installation, we will also ask you whether (i) you would like to explore the full-featured business trial, (ii) if you wish to only use the Product for personal use, or, (iii) if you already have a license. According to your choice, you may be directed to our license trial page, or you may continue with software installation process. During so, if you decide to sign up for a TeamViewer account, we will collect your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date, and time zone of you signing in and create a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account.

In some countries we may ask our users to provide their phone numbers for identification purposes. This may be done for the purposes of strengthening our security and ensuring proper authentication.

    • The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.1.2. Social Login Services

      You also have the option to create or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider, e.g., Microsoft Ireland Operations Ltd. (One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland), Google Ireland Ltd. (Gorden House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), etc. This makes it easier for you to register for our products. Through this, we offer you the possibility to register or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider to use our products.

      If you use an identity provider, you will be forwarded to the identity provider’s page. There you can create an account or log in with an already existing account via your user data. The identity provider will ask for your consent to release certain information about your account to us. This data is collected by the identity provider and transmitted to us by the identity provider in compliance with the relevant provisions of the Privacy Notice. TeamViewer receives an identification token from the identity provider that contains information used to create, or connect to, your account (username and email address). TeamViewer will process the email address and username received from this identity provider for registration and login to your account. To carry out this authentication process, your IP address is transmitted to the respective identity provider. We have no influence on the purpose and scope of the data collection and on the further processing of the data by the identity provider. For more information, please read the privacy policy of the respective provider. By using the login via an identity provider, you agree to this data transfer to us. TeamViewer will also directly collect from you some of the information needed for providing the account (as described above, C.1.1.). You can prevent the processing of your data by the respective identity provider by not using the identity provider, but using our own registration form and signing up for a TeamViewer account.

    • C.1.3. Conducting remote connections

      Whenever you run the TeamViewer Software client, the TeamViewer master server infrastructure will register whether the device is available for a connection session with other devices. To achieve that, it collects and processes your IP address, your location, TeamViewer Device ID, the Machine ID, and your chosen user screen name. While trying to connect to another device, this data is exchanged between the TeamViewer master server infrastructure, selected TeamViewer routers, and the Software client of your envisaged connection partner. In addition, our servers will automatically collect certain remote connection metadata (so called logs, which can later be used to address and analyze technical bugs and difficulties).

Learn more

The decision on which connection paths are used, in particular which routing servers, depends on the analysis of this data, considering e.g., geography and current workload on individual routers. Once you successfully connect to another device and thus establish a remote control or other session with your connection partner, certain session metadata such as a remote connection (session) ID will be collected and processed.

    • The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.2. Ensuring your security and that of others

  • The security of our customers, users and employees is extremely important for TeamViewer. To achieve these purposes, TeamViewer has implemented a number of processes and procedures, so that fraudulent or suspicious activities are identified, and TeamViewer may take appropriate action. These measures also serve the prevention of abuse and fraud by identifying abnormal or unexpected usage. To do so, we need to evaluate the usage of the Software in order to recognize abusive or abnormal patterns and thus to help protect our network and service integrity at any time. Doing so, we may process certain personal data, e.g., data associated with your remote connections, IP addresses, derived locations, various user interactions and patterns as well as device information (e.g., device IDs as well as TeamViewer IDs). These processes are intended primarily to achieve the above aim i.e., to protect stakeholders as well as TeamViewer’s interests.
    Our users and customers also have the possibility to partake in the connection risk scoring (beta feature), which provides alerts within the Software on the possibly suspicious behavior of your connection partners. For these purposes, the results of our risk analysis are being used.
    If you believe we have blocked you and your devices in error, please contact our customer support in order to unblock your access.
    The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section is, performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.3. Conducting license audits

  • We may analyze your use of the Software and/or Server Services for security purposes, as well as for license auditing. To that end, we may use, and implement technical measures regarding the functionality of the Software and the Server Services to assess whether your usage pattern is in line with the indicated usage volume and thus with the chosen license type, and to detect whether the contractually agreed scope of use is being exceeded by customers or users in individual cases.
    The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

C.3.1. Free Version
  • If you are using our so-called Free Version of the Software as defined in the EULA, we may analyze your Product usage data (see the examples from Sections C.5 to C.6) in accordance with Sections A.1, B.1.1, B.2.2, as well as B.1.8 of our EULA to assess whether your usage pattern is in line with your indicated usage purpose and thus with the chosen license type. This assessment, which may also include an analysis of the domain of an email-address you have provided in the course of signing up for a TeamViewer account (see above Section C.1.1), will result in a so called “commercial score”. Depending on this score, we may determine that a fee-based license, as opposed to a Free Version, is required for your usage pattern of our Product, and we will inform you accordingly.

    If you continue to use our Product in a way that indicates a violation of Section B.1.8 of the EULA, we may limit or ultimately block your access to the Server Services and ask you to purchase a fee-based license. In certain cases, this may involve an automatic decision-making process, where TeamViewer systems are configured to automatically put in place a limitation or even a blocking of your use of the Product.

    If you think you are using our Product within the scope of the Free Version license, you may submit a corresponding request by way of our online form, for which we ask you to submit your name, email-address, affected TeamViewer Device ID, and an explanation on your usage. TeamViewer will then analyze your submission and again evaluate your detected usage patterns. In the course of the evaluation process, we may also ask you to submit a declaration confirming your use of our Product for private, non-commercial purposes only. For this declaration, we may ask you to submit your name, postal address, explanation of your usage, and your signature.
C.3.2. Paid license
  • If you have purchased our paid license, we may from time to time monitor your use of our services for license audit purposes, especially, to check whether your use of the Software and its features is in line with your license scope. If we determine any discrepancies and especially, the overuse, we may get notify you via in-product messaging and ask you to discontinue the overuse or alternatively, purchase additional licenses.

    Please refer to Section B.1.4 of the EULA in this connection.

    If you will not discontinue the overuse or purchase additional licenses, we may block your Server Services until the dispute is resolved or terminate the agreement with you.

    We may also process certain personal data in connection with your payments. In case of the payment defaults, in addition to sending out payment reminders, we may block your Software and Server Services in accordance with our EULA, as well as involve external debt collection agency.
  • C.4. Support and Feedback

    • C.4.1. Processing your feedback
    • When you provide feedback concerning your experience when using TeamViewer Products (e.g. through our user focus program, or by reporting bugs or feature requests), we will collect and process your account ID (if you provide the feedback while logged-in), your country and language settings, as well as any information you submit in your inquiry (including attachments such as log files or screen shots), which may contain your email-address, your name, company information, phone number, license key, or your TeamViewer Device ID. You may also provide us with logs stored on your local device for analytical purposes. In such case we will only process your data for the purposes of resolving the issue.
      The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.4.2. Providing technical support
    • When you request technical support, we may collect and process your data for providing support, e.g., for IT fault analysis, troubleshooting and remote maintenance. We may also process server logs and logs from your device, as provided by you.
      The legal basis to process your personal data as outlined above under this Section is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.4.3. Bug Bounty Program
    • We embrace any responsible disclosure in order to make our Products and Services better. Therefore, we offer a clear guideline for ethical hackers by providing a VDP (Vulnerability Disclosure Policy). Our aim is to challenge ourselves by allowing you to investigate and discover various bugs or vulnerabilities pertaining to security exploits of our software.

      You may participate in the so-called bug bounty or similar program anonymously. However, if you decide to submit your personal data, we may process it in order to properly identify you (e.g., your name, last name, pseudonym) as well as your contact information (e.g., email-address, postal address, phone number), your credentials, your country of residence and other personal information, as submitted by you.

      The purpose of the processing is to work with you in order to resolve the bug and any associated topics around it. As mentioned above, you may also participate within the Program anonymously.

      The Legal basis of this processing is fulfillment of the participation terms and conditions, i.e., Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.5. Product improvement

  • TeamViewer strives to continuously develop and improve its Software and Services, e.g., update, improve the service provision, user productivity, integrity, reliability and quality of our Software. In order to do so, TeamViewer needs to better understand, analyze and categorize the needs of you, our users and customers. Please note, that TeamViewer has put additional technical and organisational measures in place, e.g., pseudonymization as well as further strong technical and organisational measures to ensure security of the data. It is also important to note, that we never access any content or connection data itself, but rather observe your interactions with our Software and Services.

This may include the session metadata, feature usage (e.g., remote control, file transfer, settings, etc.), and how frequently they are being used. This information helps improve and further develop TeamViewer Core, e.g., to help decide whether certain functionalities the Software shall be kept, amended, or improved, or whether to create new features or improve the design. Please note, that TeamViewer only assesses the interactions and at no point information or data that is being exchanged between you and your connection partner(s).
    TeamViewer may analyze this data together with further information submitted to us, as further described under this Product Privacy Notice (e.g., under Sections C.1.1 or C.4), as well as in our General Privacy Notice.

C. Categories of personal data, as well as purposes and legal basis for the processing

TeamViewer Remote Management is a module integrated in the TeamViewer Product family which allows you to monitor your IT infrastructure (hardware and software), keep your devices safe from malware as well as remotely back-up and restore your data to a cloud. In order to use TeamViewer Remote Management, you must be using TeamViewer Remote Access and Control, as TeamViewer Remote Management is only available for in-product use and not separately. Therefore, please take note of TeamViewer Remote Access and Control Privacy Notice in addition to this one.

While providing TeamViewer Remote Management module, TeamViewer may collect and process personal data for various purposes. The following paragraph outlines the categories of data processed.

  • C.1. When you use TeamViewer Remote Management

    • C.1.1. Getting started

      When you install the Software and use the Product for the first time on a new device, we need to collect certain information from that device, such as your device’s MAC address, combined with other device-related information to ensure its uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Software installed.

      When you sign up for a TeamViewer account, TeamViewer collects your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date and time zone of you signing in and creates a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account. Should you choose to add the additional security option of two factor authentication to your account, TeamViewer will process the data required to provide this option and to maintain your accounts security including: Number of login attempts, location and whether the session is active, Mobile phone number, TeamViewer ID.

Learn more

During the installation, we will also ask you whether (i) you would like to explore the full-featured business trial, (ii) if you wish to only use the Product for personal use, or, (iii) if you already have a license. According to your choice, you may be directed to our license trial page, or you may continue with software installation process. During so, if you decide to sign up for a TeamViewer account, we will collect your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date, and time zone of you signing in and create a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account.

C. Categories of data, as well as purposes and legal basis for processing

  • C.1. When you use TeamViewer Meeting

    • C.1.1. Getting started

      When you download and install TeamViewer Meeting on your device for the first time, TeamViewer will collect certain information, such as your IP address, your device’s MAC address, operating system (OS) specific identifier combined with other device-related information to ensure uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID and a unique meeting ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the TeamViewer Meeting software installed. In addition, if you sign up for TeamViewer Meeting to create your personal account, TeamViewer will process your name, email address and a password of your choice.

      The legal basis to process this personal data as described under this Section is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

    • C.1.2. Social Login Services

      You also have the option to create or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider, e.g., Microsoft Ireland Operations Ltd. (One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland), Google Ireland Ltd. (Gorden House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), etc. This makes it easier for you to register for our products. Through this, we offer you the possibility to register or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider to use our products.

      If you use an identity provider, you will be forwarded to the identity provider’s page. There you can create an account or log in with an already existing account via your user data. The identity provider will ask for your consent to release certain information about your account to us. This data is collected by the identity provider and transmitted to us by the identity provider in compliance with the relevant provisions of the Privacy Notice. TeamViewer receives an identification token from the identity provider that contains information used to create, or connect to, your account (username and email address). TeamViewer will process the email address and username received from this identity provider for registration and login to your account. To carry out this authentication process, your IP address is transmitted to the respective identity provider. We have no influence on the purpose and scope of the data collection and on the further processing of the data by the identity provider. For more information, please read the privacy policy of the respective provider. By using the login via an identity provider, you agree to this data transfer to us.

You can prevent the processing of your data by the respective identity provider by not using the identity provider, but using our own registration form and signing up for a TeamViewer account.

    • C.1.3. During the meeting (or when using the chat feature)

      Whenever you run the TeamViewer Meeting, the TeamViewer master server infrastructure will register which devices are joining the meeting session. To achieve that, it collects and processes your IP address, your location, TeamViewer Device ID, the Machine ID, and your chosen user screen name. While trying to connect to another device, this data is exchanged between the TeamViewer master server infrastructure, selected TeamViewer routers, and the Software client of your envisaged connection partner.

      The decision on which connection paths are used, in particular which routing servers, depends on the analysis of this data, considering e.g., geography and current workload on individual routers. Once you successfully connect to another device and thus establish a meeting with your partner(s), certain meeting metadata such as a meeting ID, as well as the start and end times of your meeting will be collected and processed. In addition, our servers will automatically collect certain meeting metadata (so called logs, which can later be used to address and analyze technical bugs and difficulties).

Please note, that the data and information that is exchanged between the endpoints during your use of TeamViewer Meeting and chat, in particular, the content that is generated when you establish a meeting or within the chat, e.g., video and audio stream as well as chat messages, is protected by our 256Bit end-to-end encryption and no one, besides you and your connection partner(s) can access them. More on our encryption techniques can be found in our Product Description Page as well as in our Community.

Privacy Notice for TeamViewer IoT

Version as of July 2022

TeamViewer Germany GmbH and its affiliates take protection of your personal data very seriously. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as name, address, email-addresses, IP address, or user behavior etc. The following document (“Privacy Notice”) provides you with information about the processing of personal data in relation to your use of our Software and Services as described and defined in the End User License Agreement (“EULA”) in connection with the use of our Software and Services for TeamViewer IoT (hereinafter collectively referred to as (our) “TeamViewer IoT”).

Depending on the processing activity and its purpose, we may act as either (i) a controller as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), or (ii) as a processor as defined in more detail in our EULA and our Data Processing Agreement (DPA).

Subsequently, TeamViewer may process the various personal data for various purposes and in a different capacity.

Learn more

On a case-by-case basis TeamViewer may act in a different capacity in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Concrete examples of which personal data we process in which capacity are as follows:

  • Personal data in connection with our agreement with you, e.g., your contact information. More information on this and how we process personal data as controllers for maintaining our contractual relationship with our users and customers can be found in our General Privacy Notice.
  • Personal data in connection with your account (e.g., your email, password, username etc.), as well as with various TeamViewer Features, esp. initiating meetings, hosting of your contact lists, or managing a team of people using our Product under your license. In this context TeamViewer may act as processors as defined under the Art. 4 no. 8 GDPR. More on processing in this context can be found in our DPA, respectively in its Annexes.
  • Personal data derived from your use of our Products and Services, e.g., your feedback, as well as statistical and analytical data for marketing and product development purposes. In this case we may act as controllers of such data. This Privacy Notice serves the purpose to provide more information in this context.

Below you will find more information on when, how, and why we process your personal data in connection with your use of our Product.

A. Controller

TeamViewer Germany GmbH (“TeamViewer”), Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany is controller pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR concerning any processing of personal data for which we determine the purpose and means of processing.

B. Data Protection Officer (DPO)

TeamViewer appointed an external data protection officer (DPO). In addition, TeamViewer established a dedicated Privacy team, which closely collaborates with the DPO. The Privacy team as well as the DPO can be reached at privacy@teamviewer.com or, at TeamViewer Germany GmbH, for the confidential attention of the DPO, Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany.

C. Categories of personal data, as well as purposes and legal basis for the processing

TeamViewer IoT is a module integrated in the TeamViewer Product family which allows you to instantly connect, monitor, and operate assets in manufacturing and production – securely, quickly, and across locations. In order to use TeamViewer IoT, you must be using TeamViewer Remote Access and Control, as TeamViewer IoT is only available for in-product use and not separately. Therefore, please take note of TeamViewer Remote Access and Control Privacy Notice in addition to this one.

While providing TeamViewer IoT Software, TeamViewer may collect and process personal data for various purposes. The following paragraph outlines the categories of data processed.

  • C.1. When you use TeamViewer IoT

    • C.1.1. Getting started

      When you install the Software and use the Product for the first time on a new device, we need to collect certain information from that device, such as your device’s MAC address, combined with other device-related information to ensure its uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Software installed.

      When you sign up for a TeamViewer account, TeamViewer collects your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date and time zone of you signing in and creates a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account. Should you choose to add the additional security option of two factor authentication to your account, TeamViewer will process the data required to provide this option and to maintain your accounts security including: Number of login attempts, location and whether the session is active, Mobile phone number, TeamViewer ID.

Learn more

During the installation, we will also ask you whether (i) you would like to explore the full-featured business trial, (ii) if you wish to only use the Product for personal use, or, (iii) if you already have a license. According to your choice, you may be directed to our license trial page, or you may continue with software installation process. During so, if you decide to sign up for a TeamViewer account, we will collect your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date, and time zone of you signing in and create a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account.

In some countries we may ask our users to provide their phone numbers for identification purposes. This may be done for the purposes of strengthening our security and ensuring proper authentication.

    • The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.1.2. Social Login Services

      You also have the option to create or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider, e.g., Microsoft Ireland Operations Ltd. (One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland), Google Ireland Ltd. (Gorden House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), etc. This makes it easier for you to register for our products. Through this, we offer you the possibility to register or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider to use our products.

      If you use an identity provider, you will be forwarded to the identity provider’s page. There you can create an account or log in with an already existing account via your user data. The identity provider will ask for your consent to release certain information about your account to us. This data is collected by the identity provider and transmitted to us by the identity provider in compliance with the relevant provisions of the Privacy Notice. TeamViewer receives an identification token from the identity provider that contains information used to create, or connect to, your account (username and email address). TeamViewer will process the email address and username received from this identity provider for registration and login to your account. To carry out this authentication process, your IP address is transmitted to the respective identity provider. We have no influence on the purpose and scope of the data collection and on the further processing of the data by the identity provider. For more information, please read the privacy policy of the respective provider. By using the login via an identity provider, you agree to this data transfer to us. TeamViewer will also directly collect from you some of the information needed for providing the account (as described above, C.1.1.). You can prevent the processing of your data by the respective identity provider by not using the identity provider, but using our own registration form and signing up for a TeamViewer account.

    • C.1.3. Conducting connections

      Whenever you run the TeamViewer IoT client, the TeamViewer master server infrastructure will register whether the device is available for a connection session with other devices. To achieve that, it collects and processes your IP address, your location, TeamViewer Device ID, the Machine ID, and your chosen user screen name. While trying to connect to another device, this data is exchanged between the TeamViewer master server infrastructure, selected TeamViewer routers, and the Software client of your envisaged connection partner/device. In addition, our servers will automatically collect certain remote connection metadata (so called logs, which can later be used to address and analyze technical bugs and difficulties.

Learn more

The decision on which connection paths are used, in particular which routing servers, depends on the analysis of this data, considering e.g., geography and current workload on individual routers. Once you successfully connect to another device and thus establish a remote control or other session with your connection partner, certain session metadata such as a remote connection (session) ID will be collected and processed.

    • The legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.2. Conducting license audits

  • We may analyze your use of the Software and/or Server Services for security purposes, as well as for license auditing. To that end, we may use, and implement technical measures regarding the functionality of the Software and the Server Services to assess whether your usage pattern is in line with the indicated usage volume and thus with the chosen license type, and to detect whether the contractually agreed scope of use is being exceeded by you in individual cases.

    If you have purchased our paid license, we may from time to time monitor your use of our services for license audit purposes, especially, to check whether your use of the Software and its features is in line with your license scope. If we determine any discrepancies and especially, the overuse, we may get notify you via in-product messaging and ask you to discontinue the overuse or alternatively, purchase additional licenses. Please refer to Section B.1.4 of the EULA in this connection.

    If you continue to use our Product in a way that indicates a violation of Section B.1.8 of the EULA, we may limit or ultimately block your access to the Server Services and ask you to purchase a fee-based license.

    We may also process certain personal data in connection with your payments. In case of the payment defaults, in addition to payment reminders, we may block your Software and Server Services in accordance with our EULA.

    The legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.3. Ensuring your security and that of others

  • The security of our customers, users and employees is extremely important for TeamViewer. To achieve these purposes, TeamViewer has implemented a number of processes and procedures, so that fraudulent or suspicious activities are identified, and TeamViewer may take appropriate action. These measures also serve the prevention of abuse and fraud by identifying abnormal or unexpected usage. To do so, we need to evaluate the usage of the Software in order to recognize abusive or abnormal patterns and thus to help protect our network and service integrity at any time. Doing so, we may process certain personal data, e.g., data associated with your remote connections, IP addresses, derived locations, various user interactions and patterns as well as device information (e.g., device IDs as well as TeamViewer IDs). These processes are intended primarily to achieve the above aim i.e., to protect stakeholders as well as TeamViewer’s interests.

    If you believe we have blocked you and your devices in error, please contact our customer support in order to unblock your access.

    The legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section is our legitimate interest and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
  • C.4. Processing your feedback

  • When you provide feedback concerning your experience when using TeamViewer Products (e.g. through our user focus program, or by reporting bugs or feature requests), we will collect and process your account ID (if you provide the feedback while logged-in), your country and language settings, as well as any information you submit in your inquiry (including attachments such as log files or screen shots), which may contain your email-address, your name, company information, phone number, license key, or your TeamViewer Device ID. You may also provide us with logs stored on your local device for analytical purposes. In such case we will only process your data for the purposes of resolving the issue.
    The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.5. Providing technical support

  • When you request technical support, we may collect and process your data for providing support, e.g., for IT fault analysis, troubleshooting and remote maintenance. We may also process server logs and logs from your device, as provided by you.
    The legal basis to process your personal data as outlined above under this Section is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.6. Product improvement

  • TeamViewer strives to continuously develop and improve its Software and Services, e.g., update, improve the service provision, user productivity, integrity, reliability and quality of our Software. In order to do so, TeamViewer needs to better understand, analyze and categorize the needs of you, our users and customers. Please note, that TeamViewer has put additional technical and organisational measures in place, e.g., pseudonymization as well as further strong technical and organisational measures to ensure security of the data. It is also important to note, that we never access any content or connection data itself, but rather observe your interactions with our Software and Services.

    For the product improvement purposes, the overall usage patterns of Software are analyzed, e.g., information about how certain features of the Software and the Server Services are used, as well as the interactions. This may include the session metadata, feature usage (e.g., remote control, file transfer, settings, etc.), and how frequently they are being used. This information helps improve and further develop the Software, e.g., to help decide whether certain functionalities the Software shall be kept, amended, or improved, or whether to create new features or improve the design.

A. Controller

TeamViewer Germany GmbH (“TeamViewer”), Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany is controller pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR concerning any processing of personal data for which we determine the purpose and means of processing.

B. Data Protection Officer (DPO)

The Privacy team as well as the DPO can be reached at privacy@teamviewer.com or, at TeamViewer Germany GmbH, for the confidential attention of the DPO, Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany.

C. Categories of personal data, as well as purposes and legal basis for the processing

  • C.1. When you use TeamViewer Servicecamp

  • When you install the Software and use the Product for the first time on a new device, we need to collect certain information from that device, such as your device’s MAC address, combined with other device-related information to ensure its uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Software installed.
    Servicecamp reviews the location during the instance creation to check in which country the instance was created to ensure that the interface is correctly setup (language etc.). You have the ability to change language and other automatically set parameters in accordance with your preferences later on.
    When you sign up for a Servicecamp account, TeamViewer collects your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date and time zone of you signing in and creates a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account. Should you choose to add the additional security option of two factor authentication to your account, TeamViewer will process the data required to provide this option and to maintain your accounts security including: Number of login attempts, location and whether the session is active, Mobile phone number, TeamViewer ID.

During the installation, we will also ask you whether (i) you would like to explore the full-featured business trial, (ii) if you wish to only use the Product for personal use, or, (iii) if you already have a license. According to your choice, you may be directed to our license trial page, or you may continue with software installation process. During so, if you decide to sign up for a TeamViewer account, we will collect your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date, and time zone of you signing in and create a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account.

In some countries we may ask our users to provide their phone numbers for identification purposes. This may be done for the purposes of strengthening our security and ensuring proper authentication.

  • The security of our customers, users and employees is extremely important for us. To achieve these purposes, we have implemented a number of processes and procedures, so that fraudulent or suspicious activities are identified, and TeamViewer may take appropriate action. These measures also serve the prevention of abuse and fraud by identifying abnormal or unexpected usage. To do so, we need to evaluate the usage of the Software in order to recognize abusive or abnormal patterns and thus to help protect our network and service integrity at any time. Doing so, we may process certain personal data, e.g., data associated with your remote connections, IP addresses, derived locations, various user interactions and patterns as well as device information (e.g., device IDs as well as TeamViewer IDs). For Servicecamp in particular, the data is processed in order to protect you and our customers from spam, e.g., you will get notifications if any suspicious activity is detected in your ticketing system. These processes are intended primarily to achieve the above aim i.e., to protect stakeholders as well as TeamViewer’s interests.

    If you believe we have blocked you and your devices in error, please contact our customer support in order to unblock your access.

    If you have purchased our paid license, we may from time to time monitor your use of our services for license audit purposes, especially, to check whether your use of the Software and its features is in line with your license scope. If we determine any discrepancies and especially, the overuse, we may get notify you via in-product messaging and ask you to discontinue the overuse or alternatively, purchase additional licenses. Please refer to Section B.1.4 of the EULA in this connection.

    If you will not discontinue the overuse or purchase additional licenses, we may block your Server Services until the dispute is resolved or terminate the agreement with you.

  • C.6. Product improvement

  • TeamViewer strives to continuously develop and improve its Software and Services, e.g., update, improve the service provision, user productivity, integrity, reliability and quality of our Software. In order to do so, TeamViewer needs to better understand, analyze and categorize the needs of you, our users and customers. Please note, that TeamViewer has put additional technical and organizational measures in place, e.g., pseudonymization as well as further strong technical and organizational measures to ensure security of the data. It is also important to note, that we never access any content or connection data itself, but rather observe your interactions with our Software and Services.

    For the product improvement purposes, the overall usage patterns of TeamViewer Core are analyzed, e.g., information about how certain features of the Software and the Server Services are used, as well as the interactions. This may include the session metadata, feature usage (e.g., remote control, file transfer, settings, etc.), and how frequently they are being used.

On a case-by-case basis TeamViewer may act in a different capacity in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Concrete examples of which personal data we process in which capacity are as follows:

  • Personal data in connection with our agreement with you, e.g., your contact information. More information on this and how we process personal data as controllers for maintaining our contractual relationship with our users and customers can be found in our General Privacy Notice.
  • Personal data in connection with your account (e.g., your email, password, username etc.), as well as with various AssistAR Features, esp. initiating meetings, hosting of your contact lists, or managing a team of people using our Product under your license.

TeamViewer Germany GmbH (“TeamViewer”), Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany is controller pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR concerning any processing of personal data for which we determine the purpose and means of processing.

B. Data Protection Officer (DPO)

The Privacy team as well as the DPO can be reached at privacy@teamviewer.com or, at TeamViewer Germany GmbH, for the confidential attention of the DPO, Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany.

C. Categories of data, as well as purposes and legal basis of processing

  • C.1. When you use AssistAR

    • C.1.1. Getting started

      When you download and install Assist AR on your device for the first time, TeamViewer will collect certain information, such as your IP address, your device’s MAC address, operating system (OS) specific identifier combined with other device-related information to ensure uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Assist AR software installed. In addition, if you sign up for Assist AR to create your personal account, TeamViewer will process your name, email address and a password of your choice.

Learn more

Furthermore, TeamViewer may process your personal data for the purposes of license management. When customer activates the license with help of license sync option, TeamViewer license server checks the information to assign the license to the correct customer. Doing so, some personal data may be processed, such as license information (e.g., license ID, roles and permissions, type), system information (e.g., license key, server configuration), user information (e.g., email, IP address, status, language, organization) or session information (ID, security tokens, IP address, username device, etc.).

TeamViewer is processing personal data in connection with license management in order to assign you the required license, and, consequently, for the performance of the contract with you.

    • The legal basis to process this personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.1.2. During the connection

      Whenever you run Assist AR, the TeamViewer master server infrastructure will register which devices are joining the meeting session. To achieve that, it collects and processes your IP address, your location, TeamViewer Device ID, the Machine ID, and your chosen user screen name. While trying to connect to another device, this data is exchanged between the TeamViewer master server infrastructure, selected TeamViewer routers, and the Software client of your envisaged connection partner.

      The decision on which connection paths are used, in particular which routing servers, depends on the analysis of this data, considering e.g., geography and current workload on individual routers. Once you successfully connect to another device and thus establish a meeting with your partner(s), certain meeting metadata such as a meeting ID, as well as the start and end times of your meeting will be collected and processed. In addition, our servers will automatically collect certain meeting metadata (so called logs, which can later be used to address and analyze technical bugs and difficulties).

Learn more

Please note, that the data and information that is exchanged between the endpoints during your use of Assist AR, in particular, the content that is generated when you establish a connection, is protected by our 256Bit end-to-end encryption and no one, besides you and your connection partner(s) can access them. More on our encryption techniques can be found in our Product Description Page as well as in our Community.

If you choose to record the content of a connection, you will be able to store the recording on your device, but not on any infrastructure owned or operated by. TeamViewer does not store any recordings on its own servers or infrastructure.

    • The legal basis to process this personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.2. Ensuring your security and that of others

  • The security of our customers, users and employees is extremely important for TeamViewer. To achieve these purposes, we have implemented a number of processes and procedures, so that fraudulent or suspicious activities are identified, and TeamViewer may take appropriate action. These measures also serve the prevention of abuse and fraud by identifying abnormal or unexpected usage. To do so, we need to evaluate the usage of the Software in order to recognize abusive or abnormal patterns and thus to help protect our network and service integrity at any time. Doing so, we may process certain personal data, e.g., data associated with your remote connections, IP addresses, derived locations, various user interactions and patterns as well as device information (e.g., device IDs as well as TeamViewer IDs). These processes are intended primarily to achieve the above aim i.e., to protect stakeholders as well as TeamViewer’s interests.

You may also provide us with logs stored on your local device for analytical purposes. In such case we will only process your data for the purposes of resolving the issue.
    The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.5. Providing technical support

  • When you request technical support, we may collect and process your data for providing support, e.g., for IT fault analysis, troubleshooting and remote maintenance.

Please note, that TeamViewer has put additional technical and organizational measures in place, e.g., pseudonymization as well as further strong technical and organizational measures to ensure security of the data. It is also important to note, that we never access any content or connection data itself, but rather observe your interactions with our Software and Services.

    For the product improvement purposes, the overall usage patterns of TeamViewer AssistAR are analyzed, e.g., information about how certain features of the Software and the Server Services are used, as well as the interactions. This may include the session metadata, feature usage (e.g., remote control, file transfer, settings, etc.), and how frequently they are being used. This information helps improve and further develop TeamViewer AssistAR, e.g., to help decide whether certain functionalities the Software shall be kept, amended, or improved, or whether to create new features or improve the design. Please note, that TeamViewer only assesses the interactions and at no point information or data that is being exchanged between you and your connection partner(s).

C. All about the Cookies

  • C.1. What are the Cookies?

    Cookies are small text files containing information related to your internet settings, which are downloaded by your browser to the device you use when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website (first-party Cookies) on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that Cookie (third-party Cookies). Cookies perform a variety of useful jobs, such as remembering your preferences, adapting the content that you see and improving your online experience.

  • C.2. When and how does TeamViewer place Cookies?

    TeamViewer uses Cookies on its websites (such as teamviewer.com, login.teamviewer.com, teamViewerIOT.com, and other TeamViewer sub-domains such as login.teamviewer.com, get.teamviewer.com, www.lifear.com) and applications. Any device with which you are visiting these websites will receive at least some Cookies from TeamViewer, depending on the consent that you give when first visiting our website or changing your Cookie preferences at a later stage.

    When you visit our websites for the first time with a specific device, we will ask you to choose your preferences through our Cookie banner (“Banner”). Within the Banner you can make a choice according to your wishes, either allowing us to set certain or all Cookies by category, limiting the setting of the Cookies or not selecting any at all. Please note, however, that some Cookies will always be active, and we do not ask for your consent for these. This applies for “strictly necessary” Cookies, because – as their name suggests – we need to place them for the proper functioning of our website (see also Strictly Necessary Cookies section below).

    The legal basis for the collection and processing of personal data in this case is, therefore, your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR or our legitimate interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR respectively.

  • C.3. When you join our community

    There are different types of Cookies used web-wide, that differ from each other by the various criteria, aims as well as the purposes. TeamViewer, as many other companies in the world, utilizes different sets of Cookies depending on which purpose we are pursuing. TeamViewer uses i.e., functional and strictly necessary Cookies in order to make our websites function properly and to display contents in accordance with your location (e.g., language settings), and we also use marketing and retargeting Cookies, e.g., Google Ads or Google Analytics.

    A comprehensive overview of the Cookies that TeamViewer uses can be found below in Annex 1.

Learn more

  • Different types regarding the provider of the Cookie

  • TeamViewer uses both, first- and third-party Cookies. First party Cookies are those set by TeamViewer itself. All other Cookies are third party Cookies, from companies such as Google Analytics, Facebook, LinkedIn etc. In some cases, the information derived from these Cookies may allow us to associate information with an identifiable individual, i.e., personal data.
  • Different types regarding the duration of storage

    • Session Cookies
    • Session Cookies last only for the duration of your visit of our website and are deleted when you close your browser. These help us to identify that a user of a particular device is navigating from page to page, supporting website security or basic functionality. Many of the Cookies we use are session Cookies. For example, they help us to measure the average time you spend on our website.
    • Persistent Cookies
    • Persistent Cookies continue to exist even after you have closed your browser and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences, particularly remember you as an existing user. Sometimes persistent Cookies are used by websites to provide targeted advertising based upon the browsing history of the device. TeamViewer uses persistent Cookies in a few ways, for example to distinguish users of our website and/or our products.
  • Different types regarding the purpose of use

  • Both session as well as persistent Cookies can serve different purposes and may be placed either by TeamViewer or by a third party. We differentiate between strictly necessary Cookies, performance Cookies, functional Cookies, and marketing and targeting Cookies.
    • a) Strictly necessary Cookies

      These Cookies are essential in order to enable us to provide you with basic and security features of our website. Without these Cookies, certain services you have asked for cannot be provided, such as the use of areas of our website that are restricted to registered users (a Cookie, which identifies registered users to recognize them throughout the visit and upon return, e.g., within the login area of our Management Console) and webshop related services. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. These Cookies are not implemented to gather information about you for other purposes such as marketing or analytics.

    • b) Performance cookies

      These Cookies are used to collect information about the performance of our website and your visit and use of our website, for example, the number of visitors that used our website and the pages that are popular among our visitors. These Cookies do not collect information that directly identifies a visitor, although they may collect the IP address of the device used to access the site. Such information is used for the purpose of improving our website and the general user experience. Without the performance Cookies we will not be able to improve our website and its functionalities to provide you with the best surfing experience. If you do not allow these Cookies, your visit to our site will not be counted, which will negatively impact us when trying to improve our website.

    • c) Functional Cookies

      These Cookies allow TeamViewer’s website to remember your preferences, such as your username, language settings, and/or the region you are in. These Cookies help to provide enhanced, more personal features. They can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize or provide services you have asked for such as watching a video, using the chat functionality or commenting on a blog. These Cookies do not track your browsing activity across other websites.

    • d) Marketing and Targeting Cookies

      These Cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. These Cookies collect several pieces of information about your browsing habits. They are usually placed by advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations, such as media publishers. These organizations do this in order to provide you with targeted adverts more relevant to you and your interests. This type of advertising is called online behavioral advertising. Furthermore, these Cookies allow us to analyze your website browsing behavior and thus allows us to customize our product marketing approach, e.g., help us decide on whether, when, and how to inform or get in touch with you based on your interests.

D. Is personal data about you processed through Cookies?

Not all Cookies collect and process personal data about you. Instead, anonymous data may be used in many cases. In certain instances, however, Cookies will help us and our partners to collect and process personal data. Below sections will tell you more about the applicable categories of personal data and the purposes of the collection and processing that occur in this context. In general, it can be said that the data serves to provide the best possible experience to you when you use our websites and products and to further business interests of TeamViewer.

Please note that you can stop such collection and processing of personal data the same way you can stop the use of Cookies in general (see more under the Cookie Settings).

    • (Re-)Marketing/retargeting applications
      • a) Google AdWords Conversion and Google Remarketing

TeamViewer uses Ad Server Cookies, which scale certain parameters, such as display of ads or clicks by users. When you click on an ad delivered by Google that redirects you to our website, a cookie is stored on your computer by Google AdWords. These cookies usually expire within 30 days and are not supposed to be used to personally identify a user. In addition to these cookies, analytic values like a unique cookie ID, quantity of Ad impressions per storing, last impression and opt-out information (markings that the user does not want to be addressed any further) are usually stored. These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser.

If you visit certain pages on our website and provided the cookie stored on your device has not yet expired, we as well as Google are able to recognize that you clicked on an ad and were redirected to our website. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked across different sites by TeamViewer, as is the case for all other AdWords customers. We merely receive statistical evaluations from Google. By and through these statistical evaluations, we can evaluate which advertisement campaign was particularly effective. Any additional data generated by the particular advertisement is not forwarded to TeamViewer; particularly, we cannot personally identify users through this information.

Through this (re-)marketing tool, your browser automatically connects to Google’s servers. Please note that scope and further use of the data processed by Google are subject to Google’s privacy policy and beyond TeamViewer’s control. We thus inform you based on our own knowledge:

By integrating AdWords, Google receives information that you visited a particular TeamViewer website or part thereof, and/or that you clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with one of Google’s services, Google is able to match your visit to your Google account. Google may receive your IP address and/or may store it even if you are not registered with one of Google’s services and/or if you have not been logged in.

You may avoid tracking in various ways, e.g. through a setting of your browser software, particularly, by suppressing third party cookie installation in order to prevent receiving third-party ads; deactivating AdWords Cookies, by setting your browser so that cookies from www.googleadservices.com are being blocked; this can be done at https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous, however, such settings are deleted if you delete cookies; or permanently deactivating cookies in your browser under https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996.

Further information on Google’s approach to data privacy can be found under https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en. Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies for interest-based advertising via the advertising network initiative, by following the instructions at http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1#!/.

In addition to Google AdWords, TeamViewer uses the tool “Google Remarketing”. This is an application that allows us to address you again, even when you have left our website. After visiting our website and while you are surfing the internet, our advertisement can be displayed to you by and through this application. This is enabled by cookies stored on your device, which track and analyze user behavior on different websites for Google. Google can track your previous visits to our website.

According to its own statement, Google does not combine data gathered through Remarketing with any personal data Google may have stored about you. Furthermore, the data processed for these purposes is generally limited to pseudonymous information. If you do not want to be exposed to data processing through the Google Remarketing feature, you can disable it by changing the appropriate settings at https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous

      • b) Social media tracking tools, including “tracking pixels”

        We may also use other tools on our website allowing us to offer you a more personalized and engaged web experience by offering you advertisements on your social media channels that are more relevant to you. To that end, we use cookie-based tools offered by the following third-party social media providers:

        • Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA; for further information on the implemented tool, please refer to https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-pixel/implementation#base-code; additional information on data collection: https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084

        In each case, we integrate snippets of code provided by these social media operators that load a small library of functions (sometimes referred to as “tracking pixels”, i.e., transparent, pixel-sized images embedded in websites with a tracking functionality). These functions enable us to track your activities on our website, such as URLs visited, domains visited, device(s) used, and, in particular advertising conversions (i.e., actions counted when you interact with one of our ads, such as clicking it and purchasing our product afterwards). They rely on cookies placed by the mentioned third-party providers, which may also enable us to match our website visitors to respective user accounts on the respective social media platforms.

        The legal basis for such processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR, e.g., your consent. Please take note of your options to opt-out of such tracking and remarketing mentioned above.

Privacy Notice of TeamViewer AG

Version as of April 2022

Introduction

We, TeamViewer Aktiengesellschaft, take protection of your personal data very seriously. The following notice provides an overview of how we ensure this protection and what kind of data is processed, and why. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, for example your name, address, email addresses, number of shares, the information which intermediary bank you are using.

A. Controller

TeamViewer Aktiengesellschaft (“TeamViewer AG”), Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, ir@teamviewer.com, is controller of your personal data pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

B. Data Protection Officer (DPO)

TeamViewer AG appointed Ms. Katja Hauser as external data protection officer, who can be reached at privacy@teamviewer.com, or at intersoft consulting services AG, DSB TeamViewer, Dürener Str. 189, 50931 Cologne.

TeamViewer AG collects and processes different categories of personal data depending on the relevant purpose of the use, especially in connection with the management of investor and shareholder relations. The following sections outline the categories of data processed by us and respective purposes for such processing. If the legal basis for a processing is your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time, such withdrawal however will not have any impact on the legitimacy of the processing itself prior to withdrawal of your consent.

I. Management of investor relations

We may process your personal data collected at the events or roadshows, such as your name and contact information, as well as in connection with our Investor Relations News Alert (in case you have subscribed to it) or if you decide to get in touch with us via email or phone. Legal basis for the processing is your consent, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (a) GDPR or our legitimate interest, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to answer your questions, provide information and maintain our investor relations.

II. Processing of personal data of shareholders and their representative

We may process your personal data such as your name, contact information, your email address, your representative, your intermediary bank, number of shares in connection with you purchasing shares in TeamViewer AG. Such information is used to fulfil our legal obligations (e.g. inform the regulatory bodies if shareholders reach certain levels of share ownership) as well as organize annual shareholder meetings (“Shareholder Meeting”), including but not limited to preparing and sending out the invitations, issuing voting cards or respectively voting right tickets, compiling the list of participants and processing the power of attorneys. Legal basis for the processing is the legal obligation under stock corporation law to which we are a subject to, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (c) GDPR.

III. Processing of personal data in connection with Shareholder Meetings

We may conduct our Shareholder Meetings either in person or without presence using the means of remote communication (“virtual Shareholder Meeting”) with the option of participating by an electronic connection.

In order to enable shareholders and their representatives to participate in the Shareholder Meeting (e.g. by checking their eligibility to participate) and to exercise their rights at the Shareholder Meeting (including granting and revoking powers of attorney and instructions) as well as to ensure a proper conduct of the Shareholder Meeting, the observance of voting bans, the lawful adoption of resolutions and evaluation of cast votes at the Shareholder Meeting, we may process the name, contact information, registration number, number of shares, voting behavior and results, submitted questions, statements (in writing or via video message), motions, counter-motions, nominations, instructions and objections of our shareholders and their representatives, and login information for our designated shareholder portal (shareholder/voting card number and password). Legal basis for the processing is the legal obligation under stock corporation law to which we are a subject to, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (c) GDPR.

The entire Shareholder Meeting may be broadcast live and publicly accessible on the Internet by means of video and audio transmission. If the Shareholder Meeting is conducted in person and you enter the recording area or make a verbal contribution during recording activities, this live broadcast will include your appearance and verbal contribution. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to enable interested shareholders and the public to follow the Shareholder Meeting via the Internet in accordance with the express permission in the German Stock Corporation Act and our by-laws.

Insofar as we take down in shorthand your verbal contributions during the Shareholder Meeting without being legally obliged to do so, this is done to ensure the proper conduct of the Shareholder Meeting and to be able to deal with your questions and motions. The stenographic minutes will not be published. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR and our legitimate interest is to ensure that the Shareholder Meeting is executed properly and that our shareholders’ participation rights can be realized in the best possible way.

If you make use of the opportunity to submit questions, statements (in writing or via video message), motions, counter-motions, nominations or other requests that are dealt with or made available during or before the Shareholder Meeting, this will generally be done by stating your name, which other participants of the Shareholder Meeting may take note of. If we are not legally obliged to state your name in this context, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR and our legitimate interest is to inform the other shareholders of the name of the applicant.

IV. Processing of personal data in connection with the shareholder portal

If we conduct the Shareholder Meeting virtually, the shareholders and their representatives will not be able to physically attend the meeting. They can, however, follow the entire meeting via video and audio transmission through the designated shareholder portal. In connection with the virtual Shareholder Meeting we will process your voting card number, log-in password, type of the power of attorney and personal data of your representative, as well as the instructions issued in connection with the Shareholder Meeting and any other information submitted by you in the shareholder portal. Legal basis for the processing is the legal obligation under stock corporation law to which we are a subject to, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (c) GDPR.

If we conduct a virtual Shareholder Meeting and provide the shareholder portal to enable you to conveniently manage your shareholder data, we will collect and process certain personal data on the web server log files, when you visit our shareholder portal in order to log in to attend the virtual Shareholder Meeting, manage your shareholder data or exercise your shareholder’s rights:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Notification whether the request was successful
  • Requested URL
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page), if your browser sends this information
  • Type of used web browser and operating system used
  • IP address
  • Port by which the access was made
  • Actions performed within the portal
  • Session ID and data
  • Successful logins and logouts with the time stamp

Your browser automatically transfers this data to us when you visit our shareholder portal.

Legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR, since we have a legitimate interest in making the shareholder portal available to you and your representatives so that you can exercise your shareholder rights in a user-friendly manner and participate in the virtual Shareholder Meeting.

D. Cookies

If we use cookies in the provision of the shareholder portal, we will only do so if this is necessary for the operation of the shareholder portal or if you have given your consent. In this case, when you visit the shareholder portal, we will inform you in a pop-up window about our cookies and associated data processing before using cookies and, if necessary, ask you for your voluntary consent.

E. Data Sources

If you are a shareholder, we receive your personal data either directly from you or from the custodian credit institutions or intermediaries who are involved in the deposit of shares you purchased.

If you act as representative of a shareholder, we receive your personal data from the shareholder who granted you the power of attorney and directly from you as far as your behavior during the Shareholder Meeting or your use of the shareholder portal is concerned.

F. Recipients

TeamViewer AG’s employees, who administer, maintain and manage our internal processes, will have access to your personal data. To that end, TeamViewer AG has strong technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data against unauthorized disclosure to third parties and to ensure that only relevant individuals, who act within their job description and have a need-to-know interest in accessing any of your personal data, will have access to the data for which they have sufficient clearance.

Aside from TeamViewer AG’s employees, your personal data may be processed by employees of third-party services providers, who assist us in our daily business, such as providers of IT operation and maintenance services, (cloud) storage service providers and providers of (cloud) collaboration tools, as well as PR agencies. We use certain service providers in order to provide services typical for the capital market, such as EQS Group AG and Nasdaq Corporate Solutions International Ltd. for the management of investor relations as well as Link Market Services GmbH for the management of shareholder relations and Shareholder Meetings. Link Market Services GmbH also operates the shareholder portal used for organizing virtual Shareholder Meetings, exclusively on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions.

TeamViewer AG selects all third-party service providers with due care, obligates them to confidentiality, and concludes data processing agreements (DPAs) with them (including the providers listed above) in accordance with the standards of the GDPR, as applicable. Should you have any questions about third parties we use, please contact us at ir@teamviewer.com.

In addition to above cases, your personal data may also be disclosed during or in connection with the Shareholder Meetings. If you, as a shareholder, make use of the opportunity to submit questions and your questions are dealt with during the Shareholder Meeting, this will generally be done by stating your name. The above applies likewise regarding the submission of statements (in writing or via video message), the publication of which will show your name and, in the case of a statement via video message, images of yourself. If you submit items for the agenda, motions, counter-motions or nominations that we have to make publicly available, e.g. on our company’s website, before the Shareholder Meeting pursuant to our obligations under stock corporation law, this will also generally be done by stating your name. Other participants of the Shareholder Meeting or even the public may take note of this. Furthermore, other shareholders, their representatives where applicable or other participants of the meeting can view the personal data contained in the participant list during the Shareholder Meeting and, if applicable, up to two years thereafter in accordance with Sec. 129 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG).

TeamViewer AG will generally not transfer your personal data outside the EU and/or EEA. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, which include data transfers for group internal IT services provided from outside the EU, including Australia, USA and Armenia. TeamViewer AG will otherwise transfer your personal data outside the EU and/or EEA only when required to do so by law or in case of orders from a competent authority. Currently we transfer personal data to our provider Nasdaq Corporate Solutions International Ltd. in the US. Legal basis for such transfer is a DPA with EU standard contractual clauses.

Whenever TeamViewer AG transfers your personal data out of the EU or the EEA to countries that do not have an adequate level of data protection recognized by the EU, we will apply safeguards to adequately protect your personal data. In particular, we will conclude standard contractual clauses with corresponding entities and /.

We will not share your personal data with local authorities or courts except where we are required to do so by applicable law, a court order or a legally binding injunction. We may be obliged to pass on your personal data to other recipients, such as when publishing voting rights notifications in accordance with the provisions of the German Securities Trading Act, or to authorities in order to comply with statutory notification obligations (e.g. to financial or criminal prosecution authorities).

G. Retention periods for personal data

Your personal data will be deleted once you withdraw consent, or once the purpose for processing has ceased to exist. In some cases, TeamViewer AG is legally obligated to retain data for a certain period of time. Your personal data will be deleted or anonymized as soon as they are no longer required for the purposes listed under Section C. and if the deleting or anonymizing does not conflict with legal requirements for proof and storage.

H. Statutory/contractual requirement

You may choose not to provide your personal data or provide incomplete personal data. However, by not providing your personal data, we may not be able to provide you with the relevant service or support, e.g. enable you to participate in our Shareholder Meeting or use all of the functionalities of our website; where we ask for consent and you choose not to provide it, or you block, disable or delete cookies, we may not be able to provide you with the information or service requested.

This Privacy Annex for users located in Brazil supplements the information contained in the TeamViewer Privacy Policies located at www.teamviewer.com/en-us/privacy-policy and applies solely to visitors, users and others who reside in Brazil (“consumers” or “you”). We adopt this annex to comply with the Brazilian Data Protection Law Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais (Law No. 13,709/2018) (“LGPD”). Any terms defined in the LGPD have the same meaning when used in this annex.

LGPD

On September 18, 2020, the Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais (“LGPD”) came into effect for Brazilian residents. In addition to the rights outlined in our Privacy Policies, as a user located in Brazil, you may be able to exercise the following rights with respect to your personal information that we have collected, subject to certain limitations:

  • The right to confirmation of the existence of the processing. You have the right to ask that we confirm whether we process your personal data.
  • The right to access the data. You have the right to access the personal data we hold about you and certain information about how we use it and who we share it with, including information about any public and private entities we have shared your personal data with.
  • The right to correct incomplete, inaccurate or out-of-date data. If you want to correct or revise any of the data we retain on you, you may do so by accessing your account and the information contained within it.
  • The right to anonymize, block, or delete unnecessary or excessive data or data that is not being processed in compliance with the LGPD. Please note that, depending on the request, this may result in a suspension or discontinuation of certain services and may be governed by legal and/or contractual retention guidelines.
  • The right to the portability of data to another service or product provider, by means of an express request. We provide you with the ability to move any of your account data to a third party, at any time.
  • The right to delete personal data processed with the consent of the data subject. You have a right to request the permanent deletion of your data, subject to certain exceptions. However, please note that exercising this right may result in a suspension or discontinuation of services and may also be governed by legal and/or contractual retention guidelines.
  • The right to information about the possibility of not giving consent and about the consequences of the refusal. You have the right to ask us to provide information about the possibility of not giving consent for the processing of your personal data and the consequences of such refusal.
  • The right to revoke consent.

Please note that not all of these rights listed above are absolute, and limitations/exceptions apply in some cases. For example, we may not be able to fully comply with your request if we are bound by certain legal restrictions or contractual requirements, but in those circumstances, we will still respond to notify you of such a decision.

To exercise the data portability and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by contacting us under privacy@teamviewer.com, at 1-800-638-0253, or submitting a ticket on our website.

ADVERTISING AND ANALYTICS SERVICES PROVIDED BY OTHERS

We may allow others to provide analytics services and serve advertisements on our behalf across the web and in mobile applications. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers, and other tracking technologies which collect information about your use of our services and other websites and applications. This information may be used by TeamViewer and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interest on our services and other websites, and better understand your online activity.

Such tools include:

1. Google Analytics and Other Analysis Tools Provided by Google

TeamViewer uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, or any other Affiliate of Google LLC (“Google“). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of our website. When you visit our website for the first time, you will be assigned a cookie with a unique user identification, i.e. a Google Analytics Client ID. We may replace this Google Analytics Client ID with your TeamViewer Device ID if you use one of our products (please refer to our Product Privacy Policy for details). We will add the respective data point to the data available in the Google Analytics tools, and this way we use Google Analytics also for cross-device analyses of user streams.

Other tools we use in this context that are also provided by Google include:

  • Google Tag Manager (a tag management system that allows TeamViewer to quickly and easily update tracking codes and related code fragments collectively known as “tags” on our website or mobile app);
  • Google Big Query (an enterprise data warehouse that enables SQL queries using the processing power of Google’s infrastructure; TeamViewer uses Big Query to store and query data sets which are collected by Google services such as Google Analytics, and the Big Query data is used to build flexible reports for evaluating our website performance);
  • Google Display Network (used to measure the impact of unclicked Google Display Network ad impressions on the website, behavior of users, and conversions; please refer to https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3105620 for further information); and
  • Google Optimize (for A/B testing, offering to analyze user behavior by showing slightly varied website contents to different user groups, depending on profile matching; thereby, TeamViewer analyzes its online services, improves its web offerings, and can create an interesting user journey).

TeamViewer Group uses data gathered through your Google Analytics Client ID as well as other data generated from Google’s web analytics applications in order to perform analyses of your interactions with our products, services, and websites. With the help of Google’s Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, we will receive analyses on our users’ age, gender, and interest categories (please refer to https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2799357?hl=en for further information). We strive to offer you tailored products and services that are best suited for your individual circumstances. To that end, Google provides us with insights and statistics that help us to make our online presence, our communications to you, and ultimately our products more interesting and relevant for you.

As further explained in our Cookies Policy, you may block cookies from being stored on your device, and consequently prevent the described analyses from being conducted, by adjusting the settings in your browser software; however, in such case, you may not be able to use all of the features and functionalities of our website. You can also block the collection of the data generated by the cookie and the data related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing a browser plugin available from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Please visit the website https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en for an overview on Google’s approach on data protection for Google Analytics as well as their privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

2. Demandbase

TeamViewer uses web analytics services provided by Demandbase Inc., located at 680 Folsom Street, Suite 400 San Francisco, CA 94107 USA. Demandbase utilizes tracking technology, which includes the storing and accessing of cookies, to collect data about website visitors. Demandbase’s Tags, or JavaScript, pixels, cookies or other similar technology or code, cause a unique cookie ID to be associated with each visitor who accesses our website and may sync with third-party cookies. Demandbase’s Tags on our website may collect data on device information (such as a website visitor’s IP address), cookies, or other technical information (such as web browser type, operating system or timestamp).

The Demandbase Tags are used for analytics and advertising services provided by Demandbase. They are also used for performance and optimization of Demandbase data and reporting. Demandbase’s services help us tailor our communications and improve the quality of the content we provide to our prospects, users, and customers. It also helps to improve our website user experience and performance by personalizing and optimizing the website for visitors.

3. Google AdWords Conversion and Google Remarketing

TeamViewer’s website uses Google AdWords in order to generate attention for our products and services by conducting targeted advertising campaigns on third-party websites and apps. Data generated by such campaigns helps us to determine the success rate of individual campaigns. TeamViewer aims at providing you with advertisement that is of interest to you, to make its website more interesting, and calculate advertising expenses accurately.

Such means of advertisement are delivered by Google through a so-called Ad Server. Along with this, TeamViewer uses Ad Server Cookies, which scale certain parameters, such as display of ads or clicks by users. When you click on an ad delivered by Google that redirects you to our website, a cookie is stored on your computer by Google AdWords. These cookies usually expire within 30 days and are not supposed to be used to personally identify a user. In addition to these cookies, analytic values like a unique cookie ID, quantity of Ad impressions per storing, last impression and opt-out information (markings that the user does not want to be addressed any further) are usually stored. These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser.

If you visit certain pages on our website and provided the cookie stored on your computer has not yet expired, TeamViewer and Google are able to recognize that you clicked on an ad and were redirected to the TeamViewer website. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked across different sites by TeamViewer, as is the case for all other AdWords customers. TeamViewer merely receives statistical evaluations from Google. By and through these statistical evaluations, we can evaluate which advertisement campaign was particularly effective. Any additional data generated by the particular advertisement is not forwarded to TeamViewer; particularly, we cannot personally identify users through this information.

Through this (re-)marketing tool, your browser automatically connects to Google’s servers. Please note that scope and further use of the data processed by Google are subject to Google’s privacy policy and beyond TeamViewer’s control. We thus inform you based on our own knowledge: By integrating AdWords, Google receives information that you visited a particular TeamViewer website or part thereof, and/or that you clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with one of Google’s services, Google is able to match your visit to your Google account. Google may receive your IP address and/or may store it even if you are not registered with one of Google’s services and/or if you have not been logged in. You may avoid tracking in various ways, e.g. through:

  • a setting of your browser software, particularly, by suppressing third party cookie installation in order to prevent receiving third-party ads;
  • deactivating AdWords Cookies, by setting your browser so that cookies from www.googleadservices.com are being blocked; this can be done at https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous, however, such settings are deleted if you delete cookies; or
  • permanently deactivating cookies in your browser under https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996.

Further information on Google’s approach to data privacy can be found under https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en. Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies for interest-based advertising via the advertising network initiative, by following the instructions at https://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1#!%2F.

In addition to Google AdWords, TeamViewer uses the tool “Google Remarketing.” This is an application that allows us to address you again, even when you have left our website. After visiting our website and while you are surfing the internet, our advertisement can be displayed to you by and through this application. This is enabled by cookies stored on your device, which track and analyze user behavior on different websites for Google. Google can track your previous visits to our website.

According to its own statement, Google does not combine data gathered through Remarketing with any personal data Google may have stored about you. Furthermore, the data processed for these purposes is generally limited to pseudonymous information. If you do not want to be exposed to data processing through the Google Remarketing feature, you can disable it by changing the appropriate settings at https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous.

4. Social Media Tracking Tools, including “Tracking Pixels”

We also use other tools on our website allowing us to offer you a more personalized and engaged web experience by offering you advertisements on your social media channels that are more relevant to you. To that end, we use cookie-based (please refer again to our Cookies Policy) tools offered by the following third-party social media providers:

In each case, we integrate snippets of code provided by these social media operators that load a small library of functions (sometimes referred to as “tracking pixels”, i.e. transparent, pixel-sized images embedded in websites with a tracking functionality). These functions enable us to track your activities on our website, such as URLs visited, domains visited, device(s) used, and, in particular advertising conversions (i.e. actions counted when you interact with one of our ads, such as clicking it and purchasing our product afterwards). They rely on cookies placed by the mentioned third-party providers, which may also enable us to match our website visitors to respective user accounts on the respective social media platforms.

We may also use the “Custom Audience” service provided by Facebook Inc., for delivering targeted advertising to you. In this context, we would check whether you hold an account with Facebook for which you use the same email-address that you have provided to us and include you in a corresponding “custom audience” group. This works by us providing your email-address to Facebook Inc. in a hashed format, and this way making sure that Facebook will only process, as a data processor on our behalf, actual email-addresses of users that have already subscribed to their service (please refer to https://www.facebook.com/business/help/112061095610075?id=2469097953376494&helpref=faq_content for further information on this process). You may opt-out of receiving targeted ads because you are part of a custom audience created by TeamViewer through clicking a corresponding link when you select the “Why am I seeing this?” feature on the Facebook platform (see https://www.facebook.com/help/562973647153813?helpref=about_content).

Like many websites, TeamViewer uses “cookies” to analyze visits to our website and help us improve our website and services. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually set your browser to remove or reject cookies. Please follow your browser’s process for doing so. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our websites. For detailed information on the cookies we use and the purpose for which we use them, see our Cookies Policy.

 

RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA

Your personal data will be deleted once you withdraw consent, or, more generally, once the purpose for processing has ceased to exist. In some cases, TeamViewer is legally obligated to retain data for a certain period. Once this period has lapsed, TeamViewer will delete the data in accordance with data protection obligations.

 

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

TeamViewer’s services are not intended for children under the age of 18. TeamViewer does not target our services to children under 18.

 

THIRD PARTY SITES

Please note that our websites contain links to third-party websites that are not controlled or operated by TeamViewer. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that TeamViewer does not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please review these policies before you disclose any personal data when visiting such third-party websites.

 

SECURITY PRACTICES

We take the safety of your personal data and its confidentiality very seriously and we provide reasonable security safeguards commensurate to the sensitivity of the personal data being handled and have implemented security practices including but not limited to technical, operational, and physical safeguards to protect your information. We implement a variety of security measures when entering, submitting, or accessing information to maintain the safety of your personal data. The website is scanned on a regular basis for any known vulnerabilities in order to make your use as safe as possible.

Your personal data is contained behind secured networks and it only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems or otherwise require personal data for appropriate purposes. These persons are also under an obligation to keep such personal data confidential. All of the data centers TeamViewer uses have achieved ISO/IEC 27001 certification, which is the international standard for information security management systems and security controls. The data centers have implemented state-of-the-art security controls, which means that personal access control, video camera surveillance, motion detectors, 24×7 monitoring, and on-site security personnel ensure access to the data center is only granted to authorized persons and guarantee the best possible security for hardware and data. There is also a detailed identification check at the single point-of-entry to the data center.

Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for your personal data, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

We endeavor to ensure that all third-party service providers whose services which we may use, maintain security standards that are equivalent to our security standards and commensurate with market practices, in the context of the kind and nature of personal data being stored or handled.

For more information, you may visit the TeamViewer Trust Center or request for a copy of our Security Measures

  • Bookkeeping and accounting: In some cases, we are legally required to retain personal data for a certain period of time, e.g., for invoices, or payment details, for up to 10 years for these purposes.
  • Marketing: for the data which we may process for marketing purposes, the retention period will depend either on your withdrawal of your consent, or if, in case the processing is based on our legitimate interest or the performance of a contract, the achievement of the processing purposes, e.g., two years for the pseudonymized usage data, or one year for a survey results.
  • Protecting our legitimate interests: We may require storing personal data to protect our own legitimate interest, e.g., support ticket data or CRM data for up to 3 years (duration of statutory limitation period).

Once such period has lapsed, and there is no purpose to be fulfilled by the processing of personal data, we will delete or anonymize the data in accordance with data protection obligations.

TeamViewer Remote Access and Control

Privacy Notice for TeamViewer Remote Access and Control (TeamViewer Core)

Version as of July 2022

TeamViewer Germany GmbH and its affiliates take protection of your personal data very seriously. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as name, address, email-addresses, IP address, or user behavior etc. The following document (“Privacy Notice”) provides you with information about the processing of personal data in relation to your use of our Software and Services as described and defined in the End User License Agreement (“EULA”) in connection with the use of our Software and Services for TeamViewer Remote Access and Control (hereinafter collectively referred to as (our) “TeamViewer Core”).

Depending on the processing activity and its purpose, TeamViewer may act as either (i) a controller as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), or (ii) as a processor as defined in more detail in our EULA and our Data Processing Agreement (DPA).

Subsequently, TeamViewer may process the various personal data for various purposes and in a different capacity.

Learn more

On a case-by-case basis TeamViewer may act in a different capacity in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Concrete examples of which personal data we process in which capacity are as follows:

  • Personal data in connection with our agreement with you, e.g., your contact information. More information on this and how we process personal data as controllers for maintaining our contractual relationship with our users and customers can be found in our General Privacy Notice.
  • Personal data in connection with your account (e.g., your email, password, username etc.), as well as with various TeamViewer Features, esp. initiating connections, hosting of your contact lists, or managing a team of people using our Product under your license. In this context TeamViewer may act as processors as defined under the Art. 4 no. 8 GDPR. More on processing in this context can be found in our DPA, respectively in its Annexes.
  • Personal data derived from your use of our Products and Services, e.g., your feedback, as well as statistical and analytical data for marketing and product development purposes. In this case TeamViewer may act as controller of such data. This Privacy Notice serves the purpose to provide more information in this context.

Below you will find more information on when, how, and why we process your personal data in connection with your use of our Product.

A. Controller

TeamViewer Germany GmbH (“TeamViewer”), Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany is controller pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR concerning any processing of personal data for which we determine the purpose and means of processing.

B. Data Protection Officer (DPO)

TeamViewer appointed an external data protection officer (DPO). In addition, TeamViewer established a dedicated Privacy team, which closely collaborates with the DPO. The Privacy team as well as the DPO can be reached at privacy@teamviewer.com or, at TeamViewer Germany GmbH, for the confidential attention of the DPO, Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany.

C. Categories of personal data, as well as purposes and legal basis for the processing

  • C.1. When you use TeamViewer Remote Access and Control

    • C.1.1. Getting started

      When you install the Software and use the Product for the first time on a new device, we need to collect certain information from that device, such as your device’s MAC address, combined with other device-related information to ensure its uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Software installed.

      When you sign up for a TeamViewer account, TeamViewer collects your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date and time zone of you signing in and creates a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account. Should you choose to add the additional security option of two factor authentication to your account, TeamViewer will process the data required to provide this option and to maintain your accounts security including: Number of login attempts, location and whether the session is active, Mobile phone number, TeamViewer ID.

Learn more

During the installation, we will also ask you whether (i) you would like to explore the full-featured business trial, (ii) if you wish to only use the Product for personal use, or, (iii) if you already have a license. According to your choice, you may be directed to our license trial page, or you may continue with software installation process. During so, if you decide to sign up for a TeamViewer account, we will collect your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date, and time zone of you signing in and create a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account.

In some countries we may ask our users to provide their phone numbers for identification purposes. This may be done for the purposes of strengthening our security and ensuring proper authentication.

    • The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.1.2. Social Login Services

      You also have the option to create or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider, e.g., Microsoft Ireland Operations Ltd. (One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland), Google Ireland Ltd. (Gorden House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), etc. This makes it easier for you to register for our products. Through this, we offer you the possibility to register or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider to use our products.

      If you use an identity provider, you will be forwarded to the identity provider’s page. There you can create an account or log in with an already existing account via your user data. The identity provider will ask for your consent to release certain information about your account to us. This data is collected by the identity provider and transmitted to us by the identity provider in compliance with the relevant provisions of the Privacy Notice. TeamViewer receives an identification token from the identity provider that contains information used to create, or connect to, your account (username and email address). TeamViewer will process the email address and username received from this identity provider for registration and login to your account. To carry out this authentication process, your IP address is transmitted to the respective identity provider. We have no influence on the purpose and scope of the data collection and on the further processing of the data by the identity provider. For more information, please read the privacy policy of the respective provider. By using the login via an identity provider, you agree to this data transfer to us. TeamViewer will also directly collect from you some of the information needed for providing the account (as described above, C.1.1.). You can prevent the processing of your data by the respective identity provider by not using the identity provider, but using our own registration form and signing up for a TeamViewer account.

    • C.1.3. Conducting remote connections

      Whenever you run the TeamViewer Software client, the TeamViewer master server infrastructure will register whether the device is available for a connection session with other devices. To achieve that, it collects and processes your IP address, your location, TeamViewer Device ID, the Machine ID, and your chosen user screen name. While trying to connect to another device, this data is exchanged between the TeamViewer master server infrastructure, selected TeamViewer routers, and the Software client of your envisaged connection partner. In addition, our servers will automatically collect certain remote connection metadata (so called logs, which can later be used to address and analyze technical bugs and difficulties).

Learn more

The decision on which connection paths are used, in particular which routing servers, depends on the analysis of this data, considering e.g., geography and current workload on individual routers. Once you successfully connect to another device and thus establish a remote control or other session with your connection partner, certain session metadata such as a remote connection (session) ID will be collected and processed.

    • The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.2. Ensuring your security and that of others

  • The security of our customers, users and employees is extremely important for TeamViewer. To achieve these purposes, TeamViewer has implemented a number of processes and procedures, so that fraudulent or suspicious activities are identified, and TeamViewer may take appropriate action. These measures also serve the prevention of abuse and fraud by identifying abnormal or unexpected usage. To do so, we need to evaluate the usage of the Software in order to recognize abusive or abnormal patterns and thus to help protect our network and service integrity at any time. Doing so, we may process certain personal data, e.g., data associated with your remote connections, IP addresses, derived locations, various user interactions and patterns as well as device information (e.g., device IDs as well as TeamViewer IDs). These processes are intended primarily to achieve the above aim i.e., to protect stakeholders as well as TeamViewer’s interests.
    Our users and customers also have the possibility to partake in the connection risk scoring (beta feature), which provides alerts within the Software on the possibly suspicious behavior of your connection partners. For these purposes, the results of our risk analysis are being used.
    If you believe we have blocked you and your devices in error, please contact our customer support in order to unblock your access.
    The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section is, performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.3. Conducting license audits

  • We may analyze your use of the Software and/or Server Services for security purposes, as well as for license auditing. To that end, we may use, and implement technical measures regarding the functionality of the Software and the Server Services to assess whether your usage pattern is in line with the indicated usage volume and thus with the chosen license type, and to detect whether the contractually agreed scope of use is being exceeded by customers or users in individual cases.
    The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

C.3.1. Free Version
  • If you are using our so-called Free Version of the Software as defined in the EULA, we may analyze your Product usage data (see the examples from Sections C.5 to C.6) in accordance with Sections A.1, B.1.1, B.2.2, as well as B.1.8 of our EULA to assess whether your usage pattern is in line with your indicated usage purpose and thus with the chosen license type. This assessment, which may also include an analysis of the domain of an email-address you have provided in the course of signing up for a TeamViewer account (see above Section C.1.1), will result in a so called “commercial score”. Depending on this score, we may determine that a fee-based license, as opposed to a Free Version, is required for your usage pattern of our Product, and we will inform you accordingly.

    If you continue to use our Product in a way that indicates a violation of Section B.1.8 of the EULA, we may limit or ultimately block your access to the Server Services and ask you to purchase a fee-based license. In certain cases, this may involve an automatic decision-making process, where TeamViewer systems are configured to automatically put in place a limitation or even a blocking of your use of the Product.

    If you think you are using our Product within the scope of the Free Version license, you may submit a corresponding request by way of our online form, for which we ask you to submit your name, email-address, affected TeamViewer Device ID, and an explanation on your usage. TeamViewer will then analyze your submission and again evaluate your detected usage patterns. In the course of the evaluation process, we may also ask you to submit a declaration confirming your use of our Product for private, non-commercial purposes only. For this declaration, we may ask you to submit your name, postal address, explanation of your usage, and your signature.
C.3.2. Paid license
  • If you have purchased our paid license, we may from time to time monitor your use of our services for license audit purposes, especially, to check whether your use of the Software and its features is in line with your license scope. If we determine any discrepancies and especially, the overuse, we may get notify you via in-product messaging and ask you to discontinue the overuse or alternatively, purchase additional licenses.

    Please refer to Section B.1.4 of the EULA in this connection.

    If you will not discontinue the overuse or purchase additional licenses, we may block your Server Services until the dispute is resolved or terminate the agreement with you.

    We may also process certain personal data in connection with your payments. In case of the payment defaults, in addition to sending out payment reminders, we may block your Software and Server Services in accordance with our EULA, as well as involve external debt collection agency.
  • C.4. Support and Feedback

    • C.4.1. Processing your feedback
    • When you provide feedback concerning your experience when using TeamViewer Products (e.g. through our user focus program, or by reporting bugs or feature requests), we will collect and process your account ID (if you provide the feedback while logged-in), your country and language settings, as well as any information you submit in your inquiry (including attachments such as log files or screen shots), which may contain your email-address, your name, company information, phone number, license key, or your TeamViewer Device ID. You may also provide us with logs stored on your local device for analytical purposes. In such case we will only process your data for the purposes of resolving the issue.
      The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.4.2. Providing technical support
    • When you request technical support, we may collect and process your data for providing support, e.g., for IT fault analysis, troubleshooting and remote maintenance. We may also process server logs and logs from your device, as provided by you.
      The legal basis to process your personal data as outlined above under this Section is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.4.3. Bug Bounty Program
    • We embrace any responsible disclosure in order to make our Products and Services better. Therefore, we offer a clear guideline for ethical hackers by providing a VDP (Vulnerability Disclosure Policy). Our aim is to challenge ourselves by allowing you to investigate and discover various bugs or vulnerabilities pertaining to security exploits of our software.

      You may participate in the so-called bug bounty or similar program anonymously. However, if you decide to submit your personal data, we may process it in order to properly identify you (e.g., your name, last name, pseudonym) as well as your contact information (e.g., email-address, postal address, phone number), your credentials, your country of residence and other personal information, as submitted by you.

      The purpose of the processing is to work with you in order to resolve the bug and any associated topics around it. As mentioned above, you may also participate within the Program anonymously.

      The Legal basis of this processing is fulfillment of the participation terms and conditions, i.e., Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.5. Product improvement

  • TeamViewer strives to continuously develop and improve its Software and Services, e.g., update, improve the service provision, user productivity, integrity, reliability and quality of our Software. In order to do so, TeamViewer needs to better understand, analyze and categorize the needs of you, our users and customers. Please note, that TeamViewer has put additional technical and organisational measures in place, e.g., pseudonymization as well as further strong technical and organisational measures to ensure security of the data. It is also important to note, that we never access any content or connection data itself, but rather observe your interactions with our Software and Services.
    For the product improvement purposes, the overall usage patterns of TeamViewer Core are analyzed, e.g., information about how certain features of the Software and the Server Services are used, as well as the interactions. This may include the session metadata, feature usage (e.g., remote control, file transfer, settings, etc.), and how frequently they are being used. This information helps improve and further develop TeamViewer Core, e.g., to help decide whether certain functionalities the Software shall be kept, amended, or improved, or whether to create new features or improve the design. Please note, that TeamViewer only assesses the interactions and at no point information or data that is being exchanged between you and your connection partner(s).
    TeamViewer may analyze this data together with further information submitted to us, as further described under this Product Privacy Notice (e.g., under Sections C.1.1 or C.4), as well as in our General Privacy Notice.

C. Categories of personal data, as well as purposes and legal basis for the processing

TeamViewer Remote Management is a module integrated in the TeamViewer Product family which allows you to monitor your IT infrastructure (hardware and software), keep your devices safe from malware as well as remotely back-up and restore your data to a cloud. In order to use TeamViewer Remote Management, you must be using TeamViewer Remote Access and Control, as TeamViewer Remote Management is only available for in-product use and not separately. Therefore, please take note of TeamViewer Remote Access and Control Privacy Notice in addition to this one.

While providing TeamViewer Remote Management module, TeamViewer may collect and process personal data for various purposes. The following paragraph outlines the categories of data processed.

  • C.1. When you use TeamViewer Remote Management

    • C.1.1. Getting started

      When you install the Software and use the Product for the first time on a new device, we need to collect certain information from that device, such as your device’s MAC address, combined with other device-related information to ensure its uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Software installed.

      When you sign up for a TeamViewer account, TeamViewer collects your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date and time zone of you signing in and creates a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account. Should you choose to add the additional security option of two factor authentication to your account, TeamViewer will process the data required to provide this option and to maintain your accounts security including: Number of login attempts, location and whether the session is active, Mobile phone number, TeamViewer ID.

During the installation, we will also ask you whether (i) you would like to explore the full-featured business trial, (ii) if you wish to only use the Product for personal use, or, (iii) if you already have a license. According to your choice, you may be directed to our license trial page, or you may continue with software installation process. During so, if you decide to sign up for a TeamViewer account, we will collect your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date, and time zone of you signing in and create a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account.

In some countries we may ask our users to provide their phone numbers for identification purposes. This may be done for the purposes of strengthening our security and ensuring proper authentication.

    • The legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.1.2. Social Login Services

(Gorden House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), etc. This makes it easier for you to register for our products. Through this, we offer you the possibility to register or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider to use our products.

      If you use an identity provider, you will be forwarded to the identity provider’s page. There you can create an account or log in with an already existing account via your user data. The identity provider will ask for your consent to release certain information about your account to us. This data is collected by the identity provider and transmitted to us by the identity provider in compliance with the relevant provisions of the Privacy Notice. TeamViewer receives an identification token from the identity provider that contains information used to create, or connect to, your account (username and email address). TeamViewer will process the email address and username received from this identity provider for registration and login to your account. To carry out this authentication process, your IP address is transmitted to the respective identity provider. We have no influence on the purpose and scope of the data collection and on the further processing of the data by the identity provider. For more information, please read the privacy policy of the respective provider. By using the login via an identity provider, you agree to this data transfer to us. TeamViewer will also directly collect from you some of the information needed for providing the account (as described above, C.1.1.).

      When you activate the Remote Management module within the TeamViewer Product, we will process operating system of your device, the version of TeamViewer that you are currently using and your IP address in order to assign you the correct version of Remote Management and to allow you to start using our Product.

      When you add so called managed devices to your Remote Management account, we activate these devices as endpoints that are assigned to your license. To achieve that, TeamViewer collects, and processes certain data associated with those managed devices, e.g., screen name, TeamViewer ID, Machine ID, email address, account ID, License ID. During the activation of an endpoint TeamViewer needs to ensure, that the Product is used in accordance with the EULA and Product Specifications.

Doing so, we may process certain personal data, e.g., data associated with your remote connections, IP addresses, derived locations, various user interactions and patterns as well as device information (e.g., device IDs as well as TeamViewer IDs). These processes are intended primarily to achieve the above aim i.e., to protect stakeholders as well as TeamViewer’s interests.

    Our users and customers also have the possibility to partake in the connection risk scoring (beta feature), which provides alerts within the Software on the possibly suspicious behavior of your connection partners. For these purposes, the results of our risk analysis are being used.

While trying to connect to another device, this data is exchanged between the TeamViewer master server infrastructure, selected TeamViewer routers, and the Software client of your envisaged connection partner.

      The decision on which connection paths are used, in particular which routing servers, depends on the analysis of this data, considering e.g., geography and current workload on individual routers. Once you successfully connect to another device and thus establish a meeting with your partner(s), certain meeting metadata such as a meeting ID, as well as the start and end times of your meeting will be collected and processed. In addition, our servers will automatically collect certain meeting metadata (so called logs, which can later be used to address and analyze technical bugs and difficulties).

Please note, that the data and information that is exchanged between the endpoints during your use of TeamViewer Meeting and chat, in particular, the content that is generated when you establish a meeting or within the chat, e.g., video and audio stream as well as chat messages, is protected by our 256Bit end-to-end encryption and no one, besides you and your connection partner(s) can access them. More on our encryption techniques can be found in our Product Description Page as well as in our Community.

Depending on the processing activity and its purpose, we may act as either (i) a controller as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), or (ii) as a processor as defined in more detail in our EULA and our Data Processing Agreement (DPA).

Subsequently, TeamViewer may process the various personal data for various purposes and in a different capacity.

Learn more

On a case-by-case basis TeamViewer may act in a different capacity in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Concrete examples of which personal data we process in which capacity are as follows:

  • Personal data in connection with our agreement with you, e.g., your contact information. More information on this and how we process personal data as controllers for maintaining our contractual relationship with our users and customers can be found in our General Privacy Notice.
  • Personal data in connection with your account (e.g., your email, password, username etc.), as well as with various TeamViewer Features, esp. initiating meetings, hosting of your contact lists, or managing a team of people using our Product under your license.

  • Personal data derived from your use of our Products and Services, e.g., your feedback, as well as statistical and analytical data for marketing and product development purposes. In this case we may act as controllers of such data. This Privacy Notice serves the purpose to provide more information in this context.

Below you will find more information on when, how, and why we process your personal data in connection with your use of our Product.

A. Controller

TeamViewer Germany GmbH (“TeamViewer”), Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany is controller pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR concerning any processing of personal data for which we determine the purpose and means of processing.

B. Data Protection Officer (DPO)

TeamViewer appointed an external data protection officer (DPO). In addition, TeamViewer established a dedicated Privacy team, which closely collaborates with the DPO. The Privacy team as well as the DPO can be reached at privacy@teamviewer.com or, at TeamViewer Germany GmbH, for the confidential attention of the DPO, Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany.

C. Categories of personal data, as well as purposes and legal basis for the processing

TeamViewer IoT is a module integrated in the TeamViewer Product family which allows you to instantly connect, monitor, and operate assets in manufacturing and production – securely, quickly, and across locations. In order to use TeamViewer IoT, you must be using TeamViewer Remote Access and Control, as TeamViewer IoT is only available for in-product use and not separately. Therefore, please take note of TeamViewer Remote Access and Control Privacy Notice in addition to this one.

While providing TeamViewer IoT Software, TeamViewer may collect and process personal data for various purposes. The following paragraph outlines the categories of data processed.

  • C.1. When you use TeamViewer IoT

    • C.1.1. Getting started

      When you install the Software and use the Product for the first time on a new device, we need to collect certain information from that device, such as your device’s MAC address, combined with other device-related information to ensure its uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Software installed.

      When you sign up for a TeamViewer account, TeamViewer collects your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date and time zone of you signing in and creates a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account. Should you choose to add the additional security option of two factor authentication to your account, TeamViewer will process the data required to provide this option and to maintain your accounts security including: Number of login attempts, location and whether the session is active, Mobile phone number, TeamViewer ID.

Learn more

During the installation, we will also ask you whether (i) you would like to explore the full-featured business trial, (ii) if you wish to only use the Product for personal use, or, (iii) if you already have a license. According to your choice, you may be directed to our license trial page, or you may continue with software installation process. During so, if you decide to sign up for a TeamViewer account, we will collect your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date, and time zone of you signing in and create a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account.

In some countries we may ask our users to provide their phone numbers for identification purposes. This may be done for the purposes of strengthening our security and ensuring proper authentication.

    • The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.1.2. Social Login Services

      You also have the option to create or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider, e.g., Microsoft Ireland Operations Ltd. (One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland), Google Ireland Ltd. (Gorden House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), etc. This makes it easier for you to register for our products. Through this, we offer you the possibility to register or log in into a TeamViewer account via an identity provider to use our products.

      If you use an identity provider, you will be forwarded to the identity provider’s page. There you can create an account or log in with an already existing account via your user data. The identity provider will ask for your consent to release certain information about your account to us. This data is collected by the identity provider and transmitted to us by the identity provider in compliance with the relevant provisions of the Privacy Notice. TeamViewer receives an identification token from the identity provider that contains information used to create, or connect to, your account (username and email address). TeamViewer will process the email address and username received from this identity provider for registration and login to your account. To carry out this authentication process, your IP address is transmitted to the respective identity provider. We have no influence on the purpose and scope of the data collection and on the further processing of the data by the identity provider. For more information, please read the privacy policy of the respective provider. By using the login via an identity provider, you agree to this data transfer to us. TeamViewer will also directly collect from you some of the information needed for providing the account (as described above, C.1.1.). You can prevent the processing of your data by the respective identity provider by not using the identity provider, but using our own registration form and signing up for a TeamViewer account.

    • C.1.3. Conducting connections

      Whenever you run the TeamViewer IoT client, the TeamViewer master server infrastructure will register whether the device is available for a connection session with other devices. To achieve that, it collects and processes your IP address, your location, TeamViewer Device ID, the Machine ID, and your chosen user screen name. While trying to connect to another device, this data is exchanged between the TeamViewer master server infrastructure, selected TeamViewer routers, and the Software client of your envisaged connection partner/device. In addition, our servers will automatically collect certain remote connection metadata (so called logs, which can later be used to address and analyze technical bugs and difficulties.

The decision on which connection paths are used, in particular which routing servers, depends on the analysis of this data, considering e.g., geography and current workload on individual routers. Once you successfully connect to another device and thus establish a remote control or other session with your connection partner, certain session metadata such as a remote connection (session) ID will be collected and processed.

    If you have purchased our paid license, we may from time to time monitor your use of our services for license audit purposes, especially, to check whether your use of the Software and its features is in line with your license scope. If we determine any discrepancies and especially, the overuse, we may get notify you via in-product messaging and ask you to discontinue the overuse or alternatively, purchase additional licenses. Please refer to Section B.1.4 of the EULA in this connection.

    If you continue to use our Product in a way that indicates a violation of Section B.1.8 of the EULA, we may limit or ultimately block your access to the Server Services and ask you to purchase a fee-based license.

    We may also process certain personal data in connection with your payments. In case of the payment defaults, in addition to payment reminders, we may block your Software and Server Services in accordance with our EULA.

    The legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

A. Controller

TeamViewer Germany GmbH (“TeamViewer”), Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany is controller pursuant to Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR concerning any processing of personal data for which we determine the purpose and means of processing.

The Privacy team as well as the DPO can be reached at privacy@teamviewer.com or, at TeamViewer Germany GmbH, for the confidential attention of the DPO, Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany.

C. Categories of personal data, as well as purposes and legal basis for the processing

  • C.1. When you use TeamViewer Servicecamp

  • When you install the Software and use the Product for the first time on a new device, we need to collect certain information from that device, such as your device’s MAC address, combined with other device-related information to ensure its uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Software installed.
    Servicecamp reviews the location during the instance creation to check in which country the instance was created to ensure that the interface is correctly setup (language etc.). You have the ability to change language and other automatically set parameters in accordance with your preferences later on.
    When you sign up for a Servicecamp account, TeamViewer collects your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date and time zone of you signing in and creates a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account. Should you choose to add the additional security option of two factor authentication to your account, TeamViewer will process the data required to provide this option and to maintain your accounts security including: Number of login attempts, location and whether the session is active, Mobile phone number, TeamViewer ID.

During the installation, we will also ask you whether (i) you would like to explore the full-featured business trial, (ii) if you wish to only use the Product for personal use, or, (iii) if you already have a license. According to your choice, you may be directed to our license trial page, or you may continue with software installation process. During so, if you decide to sign up for a TeamViewer account, we will collect your name, email-address, a password of your choice, along with time, date, and time zone of you signing in and create a unique TeamViewer Account ID for your TeamViewer account.

In some countries we may ask our users to provide their phone numbers for identification purposes. This may be done for the purposes of strengthening our security and ensuring proper authentication.

These measures also serve the prevention of abuse and fraud by identifying abnormal or unexpected usage. To do so, we need to evaluate the usage of the Software in order to recognize abusive or abnormal patterns and thus to help protect our network and service integrity at any time. Doing so, we may process certain personal data, e.g., data associated with your remote connections, IP addresses, derived locations, various user interactions and patterns as well as device information (e.g., device IDs as well as TeamViewer IDs). For Servicecamp in particular, the data is processed in order to protect you and our customers from spam, e.g., you will get notifications if any suspicious activity is detected in your ticketing system. These processes are intended primarily to achieve the above aim i.e., to protect stakeholders as well as TeamViewer’s interests.

    If you believe we have blocked you and your devices in error, please contact our customer support in order to unblock your access.

    If you have purchased our paid license, we may from time to time monitor your use of our services for license audit purposes, especially, to check whether your use of the Software and its features is in line with your license scope. If we determine any discrepancies and especially, the overuse, we may get notify you via in-product messaging and ask you to discontinue the overuse or alternatively, purchase additional licenses. Please refer to Section B.1.4 of the EULA in this connection.

    If you will not discontinue the overuse or purchase additional licenses, we may block your Server Services until the dispute is resolved or terminate the agreement with you.

  • C.6. Product improvement

  • TeamViewer strives to continuously develop and improve its Software and Services, e.g., update, improve the service provision, user productivity, integrity, reliability and quality of our Software. In order to do so, TeamViewer needs to better understand, analyze and categorize the needs of you, our users and customers. Please note, that TeamViewer has put additional technical and organizational measures in place, e.g., pseudonymization as well as further strong technical and organizational measures to ensure security of the data.

  • Personal data in connection with our agreement with you, e.g., your contact information. More information on this and how we process personal data as controllers for maintaining our contractual relationship with our users and customers can be found in our General Privacy Notice.
  • Personal data in connection with your account (e.g., your email, password, username etc.), as well as with various AssistAR Features, esp. initiating meetings, hosting of your contact lists, or managing a team of people using our Product under your license.

The Privacy team as well as the DPO can be reached at privacy@teamviewer.com or, at TeamViewer Germany GmbH, for the confidential attention of the DPO, Bahnhofsplatz 2, 73033 Göppingen, Germany.

C. Categories of data, as well as purposes and legal basis of processing

  • C.1. When you use AssistAR

    • C.1.1. Getting started

      When you download and install Assist AR on your device for the first time, TeamViewer will collect certain information, such as your IP address, your device’s MAC address, operating system (OS) specific identifier combined with other device-related information to ensure uniqueness. From this information, TeamViewer creates a unique Machine ID (MID), from which the TeamViewer master infrastructure generates the TeamViewer Device ID, which in turn allows it to distinguish between unique user devices that have the Assist AR software installed. In addition, if you sign up for Assist AR to create your personal account, TeamViewer will process your name, email address and a password of your choice.

Furthermore, TeamViewer may process your personal data for the purposes of license management. When customer activates the license with help of license sync option, TeamViewer license server checks the information to assign the license to the correct customer. Doing so, some personal data may be processed, such as license information (e.g., license ID, roles and permissions, type), system information (e.g., license key, server configuration), user information (e.g., email, IP address, status, language, organization) or session information (ID, security tokens, IP address, username device, etc.).

TeamViewer is processing personal data in connection with license management in order to assign you the required license, and, consequently, for the performance of the contract with you.

    • The legal basis to process this personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
    • C.1.2. During the connection

      Whenever you run Assist AR, the TeamViewer master server infrastructure will register which devices are joining the meeting session. To achieve that, it collects and processes your IP address, your location, TeamViewer Device ID, the Machine ID, and your chosen user screen name. While trying to connect to another device, this data is exchanged between the TeamViewer master server infrastructure, selected TeamViewer routers, and the Software client of your envisaged connection partner.

      The decision on which connection paths are used, in particular which routing servers, depends on the analysis of this data, considering e.g., geography and current workload on individual routers. Once you successfully connect to another device and thus establish a meeting with your partner(s), certain meeting metadata such as a meeting ID, as well as the start and end times of your meeting will be collected and processed. In addition, our servers will automatically collect certain meeting metadata (so called logs, which can later be used to address and analyze technical bugs and difficulties).

Learn more

Please note, that the data and information that is exchanged between the endpoints during your use of Assist AR, in particular, the content that is generated when you establish a connection, is protected by our 256Bit end-to-end encryption and no one, besides you and your connection partner(s) can access them. More on our encryption techniques can be found in our Product Description Page as well as in our Community.

If you choose to record the content of a connection, you will be able to store the recording on your device, but not on any infrastructure owned or operated by. TeamViewer does not store any recordings on its own servers or infrastructure.

    • The legal basis to process this personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
  • C.2. Ensuring your security and that of others

  • The security of our customers, users and employees is extremely important for TeamViewer. To achieve these purposes, we have implemented a number of processes and procedures, so that fraudulent or suspicious activities are identified, and TeamViewer may take appropriate action. These measures also serve the prevention of abuse and fraud by identifying abnormal or unexpected usage. To do so, we need to evaluate the usage of the Software in order to recognize abusive or abnormal patterns and thus to help protect our network and service integrity at any time. Doing so, we may process certain personal data, e.g., data associated with your remote connections, IP addresses, derived locations, various user interactions and patterns as well as device information (e.g., device IDs as well as TeamViewer IDs). These processes are intended primarily to achieve the above aim i.e., to protect stakeholders as well as TeamViewer’s interests.

You may also provide us with logs stored on your local device for analytical purposes. In such case we will only process your data for the purposes of resolving the issue.
    The Legal basis to process your personal data as described under this Section, is performance of our contract with you (i.e., the EULA) and thus as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Please note, that TeamViewer has put additional technical and organizational measures in place, e.g., pseudonymization as well as further strong technical and organizational measures to ensure security of the data. It is also important to note, that we never access any content or connection data itself, but rather observe your interactions with our Software and Services.

    For the product improvement purposes, the overall usage patterns of TeamViewer AssistAR are analyzed, e.g., information about how certain features of the Software and the Server Services are used, as well as the interactions. This may include the session metadata, feature usage (e.g., remote control, file transfer, settings, etc.), and how frequently they are being used. This information helps improve and further develop TeamViewer AssistAR, e.g., to help decide whether certain functionalities the Software shall be kept, amended, or improved, or whether to create new features or improve the design. Please note, that TeamViewer only assesses the interactions and at no point information or data that is being exchanged between you and your connection partner(s).

These help us to identify that a user of a particular device is navigating from page to page, supporting website security or basic functionality. Many of the Cookies we use are session Cookies. For example, they help us to measure the average time you spend on our website.
    • Persistent Cookies
    • Persistent Cookies continue to exist even after you have closed your browser and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences, particularly remember you as an existing user. Sometimes persistent Cookies are used by websites to provide targeted advertising based upon the browsing history of the device. TeamViewer uses persistent Cookies in a few ways, for example to distinguish users of our website and/or our products.
  • Different types regarding the purpose of use

  • Both session as well as persistent Cookies can serve different purposes and may be placed either by TeamViewer or by a third party. We differentiate between strictly necessary Cookies, performance Cookies, functional Cookies, and marketing and targeting Cookies.
    • a) Strictly necessary Cookies

      These Cookies are essential in order to enable us to provide you with basic and security features of our website. Without these Cookies, certain services you have asked for cannot be provided, such as the use of areas of our website that are restricted to registered users (a Cookie, which identifies registered users to recognize them throughout the visit and upon return, e.g., within the login area of our Management Console) and webshop related services. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. These Cookies are not implemented to gather information about you for other purposes such as marketing or analytics.

    • b) Performance cookies

      These Cookies are used to collect information about the performance of our website and your visit and use of our website, for example, the number of visitors that used our website and the pages that are popular among our visitors. These Cookies do not collect information that directly identifies a visitor, although they may collect the IP address of the device used to access the site. Such information is used for the purpose of improving our website and the general user experience. Without the performance Cookies we will not be able to improve our website and its functionalities to provide you with the best surfing experience. If you do not allow these Cookies, your visit to our site will not be counted, which will negatively impact us when trying to improve our website.

    • c) Functional Cookies

      These Cookies allow TeamViewer’s website to remember your preferences, such as your username, language settings, and/or the region you are in. These Cookies help to provide enhanced, more personal features. They can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize or provide services you have asked for such as watching a video, using the chat functionality or commenting on a blog. These Cookies do not track your browsing activity across other websites.

    • d) Marketing and Targeting Cookies

      These Cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. These Cookies collect several pieces of information about your browsing habits. They are usually placed by advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations, such as media publishers. These organizations do this in order to provide you with targeted adverts more relevant to you and your interests. This type of advertising is called online behavioral advertising. Furthermore, these Cookies allow us to analyze your website browsing behavior and thus allows us to customize our product marketing approach, e.g., help us decide on whether, when, and how to inform or get in touch with you based on your interests.

D. Is personal data about you processed through Cookies?

Not all Cookies collect and process personal data about you. Instead, anonymous data may be used in many cases. In certain instances, however, Cookies will help us and our partners to collect and process personal data. Below sections will tell you more about the applicable categories of personal data and the purposes of the collection and processing that occur in this context. In general, it can be said that the data serves to provide the best possible experience to you when you use our websites and products and to further business interests of TeamViewer.

      TeamViewer may use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

      reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the data entered on our website (such as on a contact form or log-in area) has been entered by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g., IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.

    • (Re-)Marketing/retargeting applications
      • a) Google AdWords Conversion and Google Remarketing

        TeamViewer uses Google AdWords in order to generate attention for our products and services by conducting targeted advertising campaigns on third-party websites and apps. Data generated by such campaigns helps us to determine the success rate of individual campaigns. We aim at providing you with advertisement that is of interest to you, to make its website more interesting, and calculate advertising expenses accurately.

        The legal basis for such processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR, therefore, your consent.

TeamViewer uses Ad Server Cookies, which scale certain parameters, such as display of ads or clicks by users. When you click on an ad delivered by Google that redirects you to our website, a cookie is stored on your computer by Google AdWords. These cookies usually expire within 30 days and are not supposed to be used to personally identify a user. In addition to these cookies, analytic values like a unique cookie ID, quantity of Ad impressions per storing, last impression and opt-out information (markings that the user does not want to be addressed any further) are usually stored. These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser.

If you visit certain pages on our website and provided the cookie stored on your device has not yet expired, we as well as Google are able to recognize that you clicked on an ad and were redirected to our website. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked across different sites by TeamViewer, as is the case for all other AdWords customers. We merely receive statistical evaluations from Google. By and through these statistical evaluations, we can evaluate which advertisement campaign was particularly effective. Any additional data generated by the particular advertisement is not forwarded to TeamViewer; particularly, we cannot personally identify users through this information.

Through this (re-)marketing tool, your browser automatically connects to Google’s servers. Please note that scope and further use of the data processed by Google are subject to Google’s privacy policy and beyond TeamViewer’s control. We thus inform you based on our own knowledge:

By integrating AdWords, Google receives information that you visited a particular TeamViewer website or part thereof, and/or that you clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with one of Google’s services, Google is able to match your visit to your Google account. Google may receive your IP address and/or may store it even if you are not registered with one of Google’s services and/or if you have not been logged in.

You may avoid tracking in various ways, e.g. through a setting of your browser software, particularly, by suppressing third party cookie installation in order to prevent receiving third-party ads; deactivating AdWords Cookies, by setting your browser so that cookies from www.googleadservices.com are being blocked; this can be done at https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous, however, such settings are deleted if you delete cookies; or permanently deactivating cookies in your browser under https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996.

Further information on Google’s approach to data privacy can be found under https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en. Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies for interest-based advertising via the advertising network initiative, by following the instructions at http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1#!/.

In addition to Google AdWords, TeamViewer uses the tool “Google Remarketing”. This is an application that allows us to address you again, even when you have left our website. After visiting our website and while you are surfing the internet, our advertisement can be displayed to you by and through this application. This is enabled by cookies stored on your device, which track and analyze user behavior on different websites for Google. Google can track your previous visits to our website.

According to its own statement, Google does not combine data gathered through Remarketing with any personal data Google may have stored about you. Furthermore, the data processed for these purposes is generally limited to pseudonymous information. If you do not want to be exposed to data processing through the Google Remarketing feature, you can disable it by changing the appropriate settings at https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous

      • b) Social media tracking tools, including “tracking pixels”

        We may also use other tools on our website allowing us to offer you a more personalized and engaged web experience by offering you advertisements on your social media channels that are more relevant to you. To that end, we use cookie-based tools offered by the following third-party social media providers:

        • Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA; for further information on the implemented tool, please refer to https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-pixel/implementation#base-code; additional information on data collection: https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084

        In each case, we integrate snippets of code provided by these social media operators that load a small library of functions (sometimes referred to as “tracking pixels”, i.e., transparent, pixel-sized images embedded in websites with a tracking functionality). These functions enable us to track your activities on our website, such as URLs visited, domains visited, device(s) used, and, in particular advertising conversions (i.e., actions counted when you interact with one of our ads, such as clicking it and purchasing our product afterwards). They rely on cookies placed by the mentioned third-party providers, which may also enable us to match our website visitors to respective user accounts on the respective social media platforms.

        The legal basis for such processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR, e.g., your consent. Please take note of your options to opt-out of such tracking and remarketing mentioned above.

Introduction

We, TeamViewer Aktiengesellschaft, take protection of your personal data very seriously. The following notice provides an overview of how we ensure this protection and what kind of data is processed, and why. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, for example your name, address, email addresses, number of shares, the information which intermediary bank you are using.

TeamViewer AG collects and processes different categories of personal data depending on the relevant purpose of the use, especially in connection with the management of investor and shareholder relations. The following sections outline the categories of data processed by us and respective purposes for such processing. If the legal basis for a processing is your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time, such withdrawal however will not have any impact on the legitimacy of the processing itself prior to withdrawal of your consent.

I. Management of investor relations

We may process your personal data collected at the events or roadshows, such as your name and contact information, as well as in connection with our Investor Relations News Alert (in case you have subscribed to it) or if you decide to get in touch with us via email or phone. Legal basis for the processing is your consent, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (a) GDPR or our legitimate interest, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to answer your questions, provide information and maintain our investor relations.

II. Processing of personal data of shareholders and their representative

We may process your personal data such as your name, contact information, your email address, your representative, your intermediary bank, number of shares in connection with you purchasing shares in TeamViewer AG. Such information is used to fulfil our legal obligations (e.g. inform the regulatory bodies if shareholders reach certain levels of share ownership) as well as organize annual shareholder meetings (“Shareholder Meeting”), including but not limited to preparing and sending out the invitations, issuing voting cards or respectively voting right tickets, compiling the list of participants and processing the power of attorneys. Legal basis for the processing is the legal obligation under stock corporation law to which we are a subject to, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (c) GDPR.

III. Processing of personal data in connection with Shareholder Meetings

We may conduct our Shareholder Meetings either in person or without presence using the means of remote communication (“virtual Shareholder Meeting”) with the option of participating by an electronic connection.

In order to enable shareholders and their representatives to participate in the Shareholder Meeting (e.g. by checking their eligibility to participate) and to exercise their rights at the Shareholder Meeting (including granting and revoking powers of attorney and instructions) as well as to ensure a proper conduct of the Shareholder Meeting, the observance of voting bans, the lawful adoption of resolutions and evaluation of cast votes at the Shareholder Meeting, we may process the name, contact information, registration number, number of shares, voting behavior and results, submitted questions, statements (in writing or via video message), motions, counter-motions, nominations, instructions and objections of our shareholders and their representatives, and login information for our designated shareholder portal (shareholder/voting card number and password). Legal basis for the processing is the legal obligation under stock corporation law to which we are a subject to, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (c) GDPR.

The entire Shareholder Meeting may be broadcast live and publicly accessible on the Internet by means of video and audio transmission. If the Shareholder Meeting is conducted in person and you enter the recording area or make a verbal contribution during recording activities, this live broadcast will include your appearance and verbal contribution. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to enable interested shareholders and the public to follow the Shareholder Meeting via the Internet in accordance with the express permission in the German Stock Corporation Act and our by-laws.

Insofar as we take down in shorthand your verbal contributions during the Shareholder Meeting without being legally obliged to do so, this is done to ensure the proper conduct of the Shareholder Meeting and to be able to deal with your questions and motions. The stenographic minutes will not be published. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR and our legitimate interest is to ensure that the Shareholder Meeting is executed properly and that our shareholders’ participation rights can be realized in the best possible way.

If we are not legally obliged to state your name in this context, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR and our legitimate interest is to inform the other shareholders of the name of the applicant.

IV. Processing of personal data in connection with the shareholder portal

If we conduct the Shareholder Meeting virtually, the shareholders and their representatives will not be able to physically attend the meeting. They can, however, follow the entire meeting via video and audio transmission through the designated shareholder portal. In connection with the virtual Shareholder Meeting we will process your voting card number, log-in password, type of the power of attorney and personal data of your representative, as well as the instructions issued in connection with the Shareholder Meeting and any other information submitted by you in the shareholder portal. Legal basis for the processing is the legal obligation under stock corporation law to which we are a subject to, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (c) GDPR.

If we conduct a virtual Shareholder Meeting and provide the shareholder portal to enable you to conveniently manage your shareholder data, we will collect and process certain personal data on the web server log files, when you visit our shareholder portal in order to log in to attend the virtual Shareholder Meeting, manage your shareholder data or exercise your shareholder’s rights:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Notification whether the request was successful
  • Requested URL
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page), if your browser sends this information
  • Type of used web browser and operating system used
  • IP address
  • Port by which the access was made
  • Actions performed within the portal
  • Session ID and data
  • Successful logins and logouts with the time stamp

Your browser automatically transfers this data to us when you visit our shareholder portal.

Legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest, Art. 6, para. 1 lit (f) GDPR, since we have a legitimate interest in making the shareholder portal available to you and your representatives so that you can exercise your shareholder rights in a user-friendly manner and participate in the virtual Shareholder Meeting.

D. Cookies

If we use cookies in the provision of the shareholder portal, we will only do so if this is necessary for the operation of the shareholder portal or if you have given your consent. In this case, when you visit the shareholder portal, we will inform you in a pop-up window about our cookies and associated data processing before using cookies and, if necessary, ask you for your voluntary consent.

E. Data Sources

If you are a shareholder, we receive your personal data either directly from you or from the custodian credit institutions or intermediaries who are involved in the deposit of shares you purchased.

If you act as representative of a shareholder, we receive your personal data from the shareholder who granted you the power of attorney and directly from you as far as your behavior during the Shareholder Meeting or your use of the shareholder portal is concerned.

F. Recipients

TeamViewer AG’s employees, who administer, maintain and manage our internal processes, will have access to your personal data. To that end, TeamViewer AG has strong technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data against unauthorized disclosure to third parties and to ensure that only relevant individuals, who act within their job description and have a need-to-know interest in accessing any of your personal data, will have access to the data for which they have sufficient clearance.

Aside from TeamViewer AG’s employees, your personal data may be processed by employees of third-party services providers, who assist us in our daily business, such as providers of IT operation and maintenance services, (cloud) storage service providers and providers of (cloud) collaboration tools, as well as PR agencies. We use certain service providers in order to provide services typical for the capital market, such as EQS Group AG and Nasdaq Corporate Solutions International Ltd. for the management of investor relations as well as Link Market Services GmbH for the management of shareholder relations and Shareholder Meetings. Link Market Services GmbH also operates the shareholder portal used for organizing virtual Shareholder Meetings, exclusively on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions.

TeamViewer AG selects all third-party service providers with due care, obligates them to confidentiality, and concludes data processing agreements (DPAs) with them (including the providers listed above) in accordance with the standards of the GDPR, as applicable. Should you have any questions about third parties we use, please contact us at ir@teamviewer.com.

In addition to above cases, your personal data may also be disclosed during or in connection with the Shareholder Meetings. If you, as a shareholder, make use of the opportunity to submit questions and your questions are dealt with during the Shareholder Meeting, this will generally be done by stating your name. The above applies likewise regarding the submission of statements (in writing or via video message), the publication of which will show your name and, in the case of a statement via video message, images of yourself. If you submit items for the agenda, motions, counter-motions or nominations that we have to make publicly available, e.g. on our company’s website, before the Shareholder Meeting pursuant to our obligations under stock corporation law, this will also generally be done by stating your name. Other participants of the Shareholder Meeting or even the public may take note of this. Furthermore, other shareholders, their representatives where applicable or other participants of the meeting can view the personal data contained in the participant list during the Shareholder Meeting and, if applicable, up to two years thereafter in accordance with Sec. 129 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG).

TeamViewer AG will generally not transfer your personal data outside the EU and/or EEA. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, which include data transfers for group internal IT services provided from outside the EU, including Australia, USA and Armenia. TeamViewer AG will otherwise transfer your personal data outside the EU and/or EEA only when required to do so by law or in case of orders from a competent authority. Currently we transfer personal data to our provider Nasdaq Corporate Solutions International Ltd. in the US. Legal basis for such transfer is a DPA with EU standard contractual clauses.

Whenever TeamViewer AG transfers your personal data out of the EU or the EEA to countries that do not have an adequate level of data protection recognized by the EU, we will apply safeguards to adequately protect your personal data. In particular, we will conclude standard contractual clauses with corresponding entities and /. Please refer to https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu/model-contracts-transfer-personal-data-third-countries_en to obtain further information on the Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established outside the EU or the EEA.

We will not share your personal data with local authorities or courts except where we are required to do so by applicable law, a court order or a legally binding injunction. We may be obliged to pass on your personal data to other recipients, such as when publishing voting rights notifications in accordance with the provisions of the German Securities Trading Act, or to authorities in order to comply with statutory notification obligations (e.g. to financial or criminal prosecution authorities).

G. Retention periods for personal data

Your personal data will be deleted once you withdraw consent, or once the purpose for processing has ceased to exist. In some cases, TeamViewer AG is legally obligated to retain data for a certain period of time. Your personal data will be deleted or anonymized as soon as they are no longer required for the purposes listed under Section C. and if the deleting or anonymizing does not conflict with legal requirements for proof and storage.

H. Statutory/contractual requirement

You may choose not to provide your personal data or provide incomplete personal data. However, by not providing your personal data, we may not be able to provide you with the relevant service or support, e.g. enable you to participate in our Shareholder Meeting or use all of the functionalities of our website; where we ask for consent and you choose not to provide it, or you block, disable or delete cookies, we may not be able to provide you with the information or service requested.

PRIVACY STATEMENT – BRAZIL

Version as of February 2022

This Privacy Annex for users located in Brazil supplements the information contained in the TeamViewer Privacy Policies located at www.teamviewer.com/en-us/privacy-policy and applies solely to visitors, users and others who reside in Brazil (“consumers” or “you”). We adopt this annex to comply with the Brazilian Data Protection Law Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais (Law No. 13,709/2018) (“LGPD”). Any terms defined in the LGPD have the same meaning when used in this annex.

LGPD

On September 18, 2020, the Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais (“LGPD”) came into effect for Brazilian residents. In addition to the rights outlined in our Privacy Policies, as a user located in Brazil, you may be able to exercise the following rights with respect to your personal information that we have collected, subject to certain limitations:

  • The right to confirmation of the existence of the processing. You have the right to ask that we confirm whether we process your personal data.
  • The right to access the data. You have the right to access the personal data we hold about you and certain information about how we use it and who we share it with, including information about any public and private entities we have shared your personal data with.
  • The right to correct incomplete, inaccurate or out-of-date data. If you want to correct or revise any of the data we retain on you, you may do so by accessing your account and the information contained within it.
  • The right to anonymize, block, or delete unnecessary or excessive data or data that is not being processed in compliance with the LGPD. Please note that, depending on the request, this may result in a suspension or discontinuation of certain services and may be governed by legal and/or contractual retention guidelines.
  • The right to the portability of data to another service or product provider, by means of an express request. We provide you with the ability to move any of your account data to a third party, at any time.
  • The right to delete personal data processed with the consent of the data subject. You have a right to request the permanent deletion of your data, subject to certain exceptions. However, please note that exercising this right may result in a suspension or discontinuation of services and may also be governed by legal and/or contractual retention guidelines.
  • The right to information about the possibility of not giving consent and about the consequences of the refusal. You have the right to ask us to provide information about the possibility of not giving consent for the processing of your personal data and the consequences of such refusal.
  • The right to revoke consent.

Please note that not all of these rights listed above are absolute, and limitations/exceptions apply in some cases. For example, we may not be able to fully comply with your request if we are bound by certain legal restrictions or contractual requirements, but in those circumstances, we will still respond to notify you of such a decision.

Exercising Data Portability and Deletion Rights
To exercise the data portability and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by contacting us under privacy@teamviewer.com, at 1-800-638-0253, or submitting a ticket on our website.

We will need to verify your identity before processing your request. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • We will need to verify your identity before processing your request. The verifiable consumer request must:
  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or a legal representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within thirty (30) days. The response we provide may explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

Changes to Our Privacy Annex

We reserve the right to amend this privacy annex at our discretion and at any time.
