We appreciate your interest in our website. It is generally possible to use this website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of specific services via our website, the processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
We have implemented a number of technical and organisational processing measures to ensure the highest possible level of protection for personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, the transmission of data over the Internet is subject to security vulnerabilities and absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, any data subject is free to provide us with personal data by other means, such as by telephone.
We use the following terms, among others, in this privacy statement:
a) Personal Data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). A natural person is considered to be identifiable if, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more special features, the expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person can be identified.
b) Data Subject
The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the data controller.
Processing is any operation carried out with or without the help of automated procedures or any such series of operations in connection with personal data, such as collecting, recording, organising, arranging, storing, adapting or altering, reading, querying, using, disclosure by transmission, distribution or any other form of making available, matching or linking, restricting, deleting or destroying.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in the future.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data which consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, whereabouts or location of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be linked to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data is not used to create a false identity.
g) Data Controller
The controller is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of processing are specified by Union law or the law of the Member States, Union law or the law of the Member States may provide for the identification of the controller or the specific criteria for his identification.
A processor is any natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative mandate under Union or Member State law are not considered as recipients.
j) Third party
A third party is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
Consent is any expression of will given voluntarily by the data subject, in an informed and unambiguous manner for the specific case, in the form of a declaration or any other clear confirmatory action by which the data subject indicates that he or she agrees to the processing of his or her personal data.
2. Name and address of the data controller
The responsible person within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is

Cookies provide more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie being set.
At any time, the person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Cookies that have already been set can also be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software. This is possible in all common web browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in your internet browser, you may not be able to use all the functions of our website to their full extent.
4. General data and information collection
The Site collects a series of general data and information each time the Site is accessed by a person or by an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. (1) the type and version of browser used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (referrer), (4) the sub-websites to which an accessing system accesses our website, (5) the date and time of access to the Website, (6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address, (7) the Internet Service Provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used to avert threats in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
We do not use this general data and information to draw conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. We therefore evaluate this anonymously collected data and information statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. Anonymous server log file information is stored separately from any personal information provided by an individual.
5. How to contact us through the website
In compliance with legal requirements, the website contains information that allows for quick electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us, including a general address for electronic mail (e-mail address). When a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or by using the contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data, provided voluntarily by the data subject to the data controller, will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. Such personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.
6. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller will process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this is required by the European Directive and Regulation giver or any other legislator in laws or regulations to which the data controller has been subject.
If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulation authority or another responsible legislator has expired, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the legal provisions.

In the event of an objection, the QUIPS project will no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the QUIPS project processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to the creation of profiles in connection with such direct advertising.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European legislator in the Directives and Regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effects on him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, if the decision (1) is not necessary for the entering into or the performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permissible under Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation requires appropriate measures, the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or national law to which the controller is subject and such law requires appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is carried out with the express consent of the data subject.

The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, recording and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analytics service collects data about the website from which a person came to a website (known as a referrer), which subpages of the website were visited, or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. Web analytics is mainly used to optimise a website and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the "_gat._anonymizeIp" extension for web analysis via Google Analytics. With this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymised by Google if our website is accessed from a member state of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google will use the information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the user's computer. What cookies are has already been explained above. The cookie enables Google to analyse your use of the website. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website operated by the party responsible for data processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google may become aware of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.
The cookie is used to store personal information such as the time of access, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the USA. Google may also transfer this information to third parties.
9. Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to those processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and their name, age, health insurance details or other vital information needed to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Finally, the processing could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing in particular because it has been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, the EDPS considers that a legitimate interest can be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47 sentence 2 of the GDPR).
10. Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to conduct our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
11. Duration of storage of personal data
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. At the end of this period, the relevant data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or for the initiation of a contract.
12. Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the personal data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information about the contracting party). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be entered into for a data subject to provide us with personal data that we must then process. For example, a data subject may be required to provide personal data if our company enters into a contract with the data subject. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject, on a case-by-case basis, whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the performance of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and the consequences of not providing the personal data.
13. Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision making or profiling.
