IT security and data protection at PCS

Data protection for videoconferencing: with PCS, your data is safe. This applies to Video conferencingHybrid eventsDigital conferencesRemote InterpretingConference streaming and all the digital services we offer. 

 

Access to conferences is password protected, all data traffic is encrypted, and no data is passed on to third parties. 

 

Data traffic is routed via our own web servers located in Germany or via servers located in the EU, depending on your requirements/guidelines. So you can be sure that no data is stored on servers outside the EU, European or even German data protection law applies depending on your requirements.

 

  • PCS web servers are located in Germany
  • DSGVO compliant and according to German data protection law
  • Data is stored only in the EU or in Germany, depending on the booking
  • Third parties have no access to data
  • No data will be disclosed to third parties
  • All data traffic is encrypted according to the highest security standards
  • Video conferences are password protected
  • Double-secured entry through moderated waiting rooms

Digital conferences at PCS are DSGVO-compliant

All digital services offered by PCS are compliant with the GDPR. Data is processed and stored exclusively on servers in the EU or in Deutschalnd, depending on your preferences.


Operating online services on a server within the EU is the basis for data privacy-compliant communication. This is indispensable since the ECJ declared the Privacy Shield agreement invalid in September 2020.

Highest security for your data

Server location Germany, Zoom self-hosted

Our PCS web servers for video conferencing are located in Wuppertal, Germany. We run the Zoom application ourselves on our web servers, independently of the servers of the Zoom company. The Zoom company only provides us with the Zoom video conferencing software and has no way of accessing your data from outside. It is important to distinguish between the Zoom software and the service of providing the software on servers.

German data protection law

Our server locations are in Germany and therefore fall under German data protection law; they are DSGVO-compliant. If you have booked the use of our German server with us, your data will not be transferred to servers outside Germany. There is only data exchange between your participants and our servers.

Highest encryption

All data (video, audio, documents, text messages) transmitted during a video conference are encrypted. The transmission is end-to-end encrypted with the currently most secure 256 bit encryption algorithm (AES-256 GCM), it is not possible for third parties to access your data.

Password protection and entry control

Data protection during video conferences is particularly important. That is why our video conferences are always password-protected. If required, access to the conference can also be controlled via a waiting room system. Participants can then only enter the conference if an authorized moderator has given them access.

Dedicated servers for your video conferences, Zoom conferences and hybrid events

Which server should I book?

Many companies, authorities or parliaments have individual requirements for security and data protection. To meet these needs, we recommend booking our PCS server. Just talk to our project planners in advance, we will be happy to create your individual configuration.
