Effective January 1st, 2018

Qymatix Solutions GmbH appreciates your visit to our Website and thanks you for your interest in our company, our products and our services. Protection of your privacy and personal data is a very important matter for us. To ensure a high level of transparency and security, our declaration on data protection as set forth below will inform you as to the nature, scope and purpose of any collection, use and processing of information and data recorded by us. In this respect, please keep in mind that this declaration on data protection refers only to the publicly accessible Web sites with the following Internet addresses/URLs of Qymatix Solutions.

1. External Links

Our Website also refers to third parties. As a rule, these are identified by stating the relevant Internet address or the company/product logo. Qymatix has no influence whatsoever on the contents and design of sites of other providers and therefore cannot extend the warranties under this declaration on data protection to such sites. Nor does the fact that we refer to such sites mean that we adopt their contents as our own.

2. Cookies

A cookie is a small data text file stored on your computer or mobile device (if permitted by your browser) that Qymatix can retrieve to identify you while you are on our site. The cookies can only be read by the website which set it. No other company has access to these cookies. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or device, pass on a computer virus, or capture your email address. It is possible for you to set your browser so cookies are rejected, or you are informed of them before they are stored.

2.1 Session Cookies

Our Websites use so-called session cookies. These cookies deposit data for purposes of technical regulation in your browser’s memory. However, they do not contain any personal data and are deleted after your browser is closed.

2.2 Mandatory Cookies

Qymatix Solutions GmbH deposits mandatory cookies on your computer, which are partly not deleted after finishing your session. Not removing these cookies makes it possible for the website to recognise your computer at your next visit and adapt the Qymatix’s site to your interests. With your consent, Qymatix stores your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time.

2.3 Website analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics. With this, we can analyse the utilisation of our website using cookies. From the collected data, we compile profiles using pseudonyms. We do not use the collected data to identify the visitors.

3. Communication-related and Use-related Data

You visit Qymatix Website without us finding out who you are. Only for statistical and internal system-related purposes do we record the access time, the quantity of data transferred, the pages of ours that you visited, the page from which you accessed our Website and the browser that you use (log files), in addition to your IP address. To the extent that such information might enable conclusions concerning personal data, these are naturally subject to the relevant statutory data protection provisions.

3.1 Anti-Spam for Blogs

At the Blog of Qymatix Solutions GmbH, we use the Akismet anti-spam service, provided by Automattic, Inc., 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA to separate spam from regular user comments. Comment data will be sent to and processed by Akismet solely for this purpose. Akismet stores the data up to 4 days, in case the comment is rated as spam the data will be stored longer. The stored data includes name, e-mail address, IP-address, the text of the comment, the referrer, information about the used browser and computer systems and the time of the entry. Akismet does not save the comment data permanently on its servers unless a comment was marked as false positive, in which case Akismet stores it long enough to use it to improve the service to avoid future false positives. You may use a pseudonym for name and e-mail address. You can prevent the transmission of data to the USA as a whole if you do not use our comment system. That would be a pity, but unfortunately, we see no other alternatives that work just as effectively. For further information, please refer to Akismet’s Privacy Policy.

4. Collection of Personal Data

To utilise the services offered on our Website, in particular, downloads, online forums, online applications, registrations for our courses or registrations for other services, it is necessary that we obtain personal data from you. The personal data entails individual statements concerning personal and material relations about you, such as your name, your address or your e-mail address. Such information is collected by us only if you provide it voluntarily and show us in this way that you agree to the use and processing thereof.

5. Use and Processing of Personal Data

As a rule, Qymatix Solutions GmbH uses and processes the personal data provided for purposes of contractual settlement and processing your inquiries and requests. Data with personal content is processed and applied to a limited extent for customer management and marketing purposes, provided the relevant statutory provisions permit this. Should you no longer agree to such use, you may object to further use at any time.

6. Forwarding of Data

Qymatix Solutions GmbH does business globally. To this extent, it might be necessary to forward your data to local distribution partners, whose registered office might also be located in countries outside the EU. However, such transmission takes place only within the group and only for the purposes mentioned above. Naturally, we do not forward your data to other third parties, unless we are obliged to do so by statutory provisions or judicial order. In particular, your personal data will never be sold or exchanged. As a company based in Europe, Qymatix Solutions GmbH adheres at all times to the Directives of the European Parliament on the protection of individuals concerning the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data.

7. E-mail Contact

Should you provide us with your e-mail address, we will also communicate with you by e-mail. Should you no longer desire such information, it is naturally possible for you at any time to revoke your consent. In this case, please send us a short message to the given postal or e-mail address.

8. Participation in Forums

We offer you the possibility of participating in online forums and commenting on our blog. To this end, we require sufficient information to be able to identify you so that, where applicable, we can meet our duty to determine authors of illegal content subsequently. Your personal data is not disclosed to other forum participants unless you have consented to it in your user profile. Please keep in mind that the texts published by you may be viewed in part by everyone without limitation on the Internet. To this extent, please observe our Forum Guidelines or the Guidelines of any third provider we might use to this end (such as WordPress).

Also, each of our employees is naturally instructed on data protection and obliged to enter into a confidentiality covenant.
