Voice Reader Web text-to-speech function
Provider: Linguatec Sprachtechnologien GmbH
We use the Voice Reader Web text-to-speech function provided by Linguatec Sprachtechnologien GmbH on our website. Voice Reader Web is a text-to-speech service for public internet content. Visitors to the website can activate this function by clicking on the “Read” icon. This prompts your browser to transfer the highlighted content of the page or the requested document along with your complete IP address to Linguatec Sprachtechnologien GmbH in order to generate the voice output. Linguatec receives the website text directly from the visitor’s browser and generates an audio file, which is sent back to the IP address of the user in streaming mode. Apart from the user’s IP address, no other personal data is recorded, according to Linguatec Sprachtechnologien GmbH. Voice output is not possible without transferring this data. The processing of your IP address is based on our legitimate interest (i.e. optimizing our online content pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). If consent has been requested accordingly (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing is exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; you may revoke your consent at any time.
We have no control over how Linguatec Sprachtechnologien GmbH uses the data for its own purposes, to what extent it can match activities to individual users, for how long Linguatec Sprachtechnologien GmbH stores this data and whether data is passed on to third parties.
As long as the respective requirements are met, you also have the right to rectification of your data in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, to erase it in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, to restrict processing in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, to object to processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR and to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR. Please note that the operator of Voice Reader Web is responsible for data processed by Linguatec Sprachtechnologien GmbH.
