Badges and certificates (own additional information)

Badges and certificates are awarded for successful exams and course achievements. If all the tasks required to pass the course have been completed, we issue a course certificate in the name (with date of birth) of the course participant. Certificates are deposited in the learning platform. The authenticity and validity of the certificates can be checked on our site by means of a code. No personal data is transmitted during the verification process.

Contact and chat

We use a chat software of the company Userlike UG (haftungsbeschränkt), Probsteigasse 44-46, 50670 Cologne, Germany. You can use the chat like a contact form to chat with us in almost real time. When you start the chat, the following personal data is collected:

  • Date and time of the call,
  • browser type/version,
  • IP address,
  • operating system used,
  • URL of the previously visited website,
  • amount of data sent.
  • And if specified: First name, last name and email address.

Depending on the course of the conversation, further personal data may be entered by you during the chat. The nature of this data depends largely on your request. The processing of all these data serves to provide you with a quick and efficient means of contact.

When you access the drums.education website, the chat widget is loaded from AWS Cloudfront in the form of a JavaScript file. The chat widget technically represents the source code that runs on your computer and enables the chat.

In addition, drums.education stores chat history for a period of 30 days. This serves the purpose of sparing you extensive explanations about the history of your enquiry under certain circumstances as well as for constant quality control. The processing is therefore permitted according to Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO. If you do not wish this, you are welcome to inform us. Saved chats will then be deleted by us immediately.

The storage of chat data also serves the purpose of ensuring the security of our information technology systems. This is also our legitimate interest, which is why the processing is permissible according to Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f DSGVO.
