We, Quant IP GmbH, Ludwigstraße 10, 80539 Munich, Germany, as the organisation responsible for this website within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 EU-GDPR (hereinafter “we”), are pleased to inform you with this data protection declaration whether and to what extent your personal data is processed when you visit the website/s under this domain. In addition, we inform you about your rights and name the responsible contact persons. This information applies to all websites that we offer on the Internet, insofar as this declaration is expressly referred to.

Personal data is all information that indicates a reference to your person, e.g. name, address, e-mail address, IP address, data on usage behavior.

A. Data, Cookies and Pixel
Processing of personal data for informational purposes based on legitimate interests, Art. 6 Par. 1 letter f) GDPR

In the case of a purely informational use of our website, i.e. if you neither register, log in nor in any other way provide us with additional information, we initially collect and process only the personal data that your browser and your Internet access provider transmit to our server. This is data that is technically necessary to display the website and to ensure the stability and security of our offer.

Specifically, this is the abbreviated and thus anonymized IP address (the abbreviation excludes any possibility of personal reference), the website you last visited (referrer), the websites you visited while using QUANT IP GMBH services, the names of the files accessed, the date and time of access, the operating system and browser version of your PC. We also store the mentioned data in log files. This storage is done to ensure the functionality of the website. We also use the data to optimize our website and ensure its security. However, the mentioned data is not stored together with other personal data. Log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days.
To provide the website functions and to fulfill our own obligations, we pass on your data to our service providers on the one hand and receive data from them on the other. This also applies if you contact us through the specified channels (e-mails, forms, newsletters, chat requests, competitions) or use other offers on our website.

Use of cookies due to legitimate interests, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR

In addition to the data mentioned above, so-called “cookies” are stored on your computer when you visit our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive in accordance with the browser you are using and through which certain information is transmitted to the site that sets the cookie (in this case, by us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They serve to make our website more user-friendly and effective overall.
You will be informed about the use of cookies the first time you visit our website or if a cookie is missing on your terminal device. We also obtain your consent for certain cookies. You will find further explanations on this under C. When giving the initial cookie advice and obtaining your consent, we refer to this data protection declaration.

We use transient and persistent cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. This includes cookies for particular sessions. These stores a so-called session ID, which can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the shared session and make your surfing experience on our website more pleasant. Session cookies enable us to recognize your computer when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you close the browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time. At no time is personal data stored in a cookie. Most browsers are pre-set to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to notify you before cookies are stored. Users who do not accept cookies may not be able to access certain areas of our websites.

B. Analytical and Marketing Cookies

Use of cookies based on your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit.a) DS-GVO

We also use cookies on our website, which enable an analysis of the surfing behaviour of the users. Analytical cookies enable us to analyse the website so that we can measure and improve the performance of our pages. With the help of these cookies, we create statistical profiles that cannot be traced back to individuals, but only to groups. The data collected from you in this way is pseudonymized by technical precautions so that it is no longer possible to assign the data to you. The data will not be stored together with other personal data about you.
If you have given us your consent by clicking on the “Accept” button in the cookie query, you allow, in addition to the use of cookies for the operation of our website as described above, the use of the following cookies for the purpose of personalized advertising.

Cookie & Retargeting

The cookie enables us to collect and store anonymous information, such as Device type, operating system, browser version, geographic location, URLs where our ads are displayed, or information about interactions with advertisements (such as number of clicks or views) along with a timestamp of the interaction. Retargeting can be used, for example, to identify a device type that allows us to serve ads that are potentially more relevant.
No personal data or information is collected that would enable us to identify a person. The cookie is deleted after two years without further visits to the website unless it is deleted by the user beforehand. If the user revisits the website or calls up an advertisement during the two-year period, the cookie’s lifetime is reset so that the two-year period begins again.

Google Analytics and Optimize

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, through IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Use of the IP address

Computers and devices connected to the Internet are assigned a unique number called an IP address. Because these numbers are usually assigned in country-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the country (state or city) where that computer connects to the Internet. Google Analytics records the IP addresses of website visitors. This allows the website owner to analyze which parts of the world his visitors come from. This method is called geo-targeting of IP addresses.

The actual IP address information is not shared by Google Analytics with Google Analytics customers. The IP mask method is also used: Website owners using Google Analytics can set it up so that only part of the IP address is used for geotargeting instead of the entire IP address. Website owners generally have access to the IP addresses of their website visitors, regardless of their use of Google Analytics.

The data collected with Google Analytics is stored for a period of 50 months.
We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. In addition, we use the data collected by Google Analytics within the framework of the Google Optimize tool. Together with an additional cookie, optimize enables us to test different versions of a website and the reaction of users to these different versions. This allows us to test, for example, where within the website a particular piece of information is most attractive. The additional cookie is used to determine whether you participate in a test and determines the end of the test.
The data collected with this additional cookie is stored for the duration of the experiment, usually 90 days.

Google Tag Manager

On this website the Google Tag Manager is used. The Google Tag Manager is a solution from Google Inc. that allows companies to manage website tags through a single interface. The Google Tag Manager is a cookie-less domain that does not collect any personal information. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may collect data. We herewith point this out separately. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made by the user at the domain or cookie level, this deactivation remains in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Objection

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link.

Social-Media-Plug-ins

(a) We currently use or plan to use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Google+, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn, Xing. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our website, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the initial letter or logo on the box. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In the case of Facebook, the IP address is anonymized as soon as it is collected. By activating the plug-in, your personal data is transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.
(b) We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.
(c) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
(d) The data transfer is independent of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link to the website, the plug-in provider will also save this information in your user account and publicly share it with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will help you avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.
(e) Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers, which are provided below. There you will also receive further information on your rights and settings options to protect your privacy.
