Privacy policy for the chat software of the company Userlike

IMST GmbH uses the chat software of the company Userlike UG (limited liability), Probsteigasse 44-46, 50670 Cologne, Germany. You can use the chat like a contact form to chat with our employees almost in real time. The following personal data is collected when the chat is started:

  • Date and time of the access,
  • Browser type/version,
  • IP address,
  • operating system used,
  • And if given: First name, surname and email address.

Depending on the course of the conversation with our employees, further personal data may be collected in the chat which is entered by yourself. The nature of this data depends very much on your enquiry or the problem you describe to us. The purpose of processing all this data is to provide you with a quick and efficient opportunity to contact us and thus improve our customer service.

All of our employees have been and will be trained on the subject of data protection and instructed on the secure and confidential handling of customer data. All of our employees are obliged to maintain confidentiality and have signed an agreement to maintain confidentiality and observe data protection in their employee contracts.

By accessing the website www.imst.de and www.imst.com, the chat widget is loaded in the form of a JavaScript file from AWS Cloudfront. The chat widget technically represents the source code that is executed on your computer and enables the chat.

In addition, IMST GmbH stores the chat history for a period of three months. The purpose of this is to save you from having to provide extensive explanations about the history of your enquiry and for the continuous quality control of our chat service. Processing is therefore permitted in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. If you do not wish this, please let us know. We will then delete saved chats 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 processing is permitted in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR.
Further information can be found in the privacy policy of Userlike UG(limited liability).
