Effective April 18th, 2018
Qymatix Solutions GmbH appreciates your visit to our Website and your interest in our company, our products and our services. Protection of your privacy and personal data is a critical 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, we identify these 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.
Only the Qymatix website which set them can read the cookies. No other company or third-party 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 or any additional personal information. You can set your browser to reject all cookies or to inform you before it stores them.
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 your browser deletes them after your session has expired.
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. These cookies do not store any personal information.
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 received 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 the case we rate the comment as spam, Akismet will store the data 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.
As an anti-spam provider, 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.
