I. General information about data processing
1. Scope of processing of personal data
In principle, we process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent is not possible for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) as legal basis.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that our company is subject to, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO as legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO as legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interest, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO as legal basis for processing.
3. Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is deleted. In addition, it may be stored if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. A blocking or deletion of the data takes place even if a storage period prescribed by the mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for a contract conclusion or a contract fulfillment.

4. Information, correction, suspension, cancellation and opposition
You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by quadox AG at any time. Likewise, you have the right to correct, block or, except for the required data storage for business, deletion of your personal information. Please contact info@quadox.de. You can make changes or revoke your consent by notifying us with effect for the future.

II. Web analysis by Matomo (formerly PIWIK)
1. Scope of processing of personal data
We use the open-source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) on our website to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. The software sets a cookie on the computer of the users (for cookies see above). If individual pages of our website are called, the following data is stored:

1. Two bytes of the IP address of the calling system of the user
2. The website called
3. The website from which the user came to the accessed website (referrer)
4. The subpages that are called from the called web page
5. The length of stay on the website
6. The frequency of calling the website

The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. A storage of the personal data of the users takes place only there. A transfer of the data to third parties does not take place.

The software is set so that the IP addresses are not completely stored but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (eg 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, an assignment of the shortened IP address to the calling computer is no longer possible.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
The legal basis for the processing of the users’ personal data is Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
3. Purpose of the data processing
The processing of the personal data of the users enables us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. By analyzing the obtained data, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness. For these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the processing of data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The anonymisation of the IP address sufficiently takes into account the interest of the users in their protection of personal data.
4. Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for our recording purposes, but at the latest after 30 days.

5. Opposition and removal possibility
Cookies are stored on the computer of the user and transmitted by this on our side. Therefore, as a user, you have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies. Already saved cookies can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are disabled for our website, it may not be possible to use all the functions of the website to the full.
