Pri­va­cy Policy

We are very de­light­ed that you have shown in­ter­est in our en­ter­prise. Da­ta pro­tec­tion is of a par­tic­u­lar­ly high pri­or­i­ty for the man­age­ment of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath. The use of the In­ter­net pages of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath is pos­si­ble with­out any in­di­ca­tion of per­son­al da­ta; how­ev­er, if a da­ta sub­ject wants to use spe­cial en­ter­prise ser­vices via our web­site, pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta could be­come nec­es­sary. If the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta is nec­es­sary and there is no statu­to­ry ba­sis for such pro­cess­ing, we gen­er­al­ly ob­tain con­sent from the da­ta subject.

The pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta, such as the name, ad­dress, e‑mail ad­dress, or tele­phone num­ber of a da­ta sub­ject shall al­ways be in line with the Gen­er­al Da­ta Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (GDPR), and in ac­cor­dance with the coun­try-spe­cif­ic da­ta pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions ap­plic­a­ble to the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath. By means of this da­ta pro­tec­tion de­c­la­ra­tion, our en­ter­prise would like to in­form the gen­er­al pub­lic of the na­ture, scope, and pur­pose of the per­son­al da­ta we col­lect, use and process. Fur­ther­more, da­ta sub­jects are in­formed, by means of this da­ta pro­tec­tion de­c­la­ra­tion, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the con­troller, the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath has im­ple­ment­ed nu­mer­ous tech­ni­cal and or­ga­ni­za­tion­al mea­sures to en­sure the most com­plete pro­tec­tion of per­son­al da­ta processed through this web­site. How­ev­er, In­ter­net-based da­ta trans­mis­sions may in prin­ci­ple have se­cu­ri­ty gaps, so ab­solute pro­tec­tion may not be guar­an­teed. For this rea­son, every da­ta sub­ject is free to trans­fer per­son­al da­ta to us via al­ter­na­tive means, e.g. by telephone.

 

 

1. De­f­i­n­i­tions

The da­ta pro­tec­tion de­c­la­ra­tion of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath is based on the terms used by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor for the adop­tion of the Gen­er­al Da­ta Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (GDPR). Our da­ta pro­tec­tion de­c­la­ra­tion should be leg­i­ble and un­der­stand­able for the gen­er­al pub­lic, as well as our cus­tomers and busi­ness part­ners. To en­sure this, we would like to first ex­plain the ter­mi­nol­o­gy used.

In this da­ta pro­tec­tion de­c­la­ra­tion, we use, in­ter alia, the fol­low­ing terms:

a) Per­son­al data
Per­son­al da­ta means any in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able nat­ur­al per­son (“da­ta sub­ject”). An iden­ti­fi­able nat­ur­al per­son is one who can be iden­ti­fied, di­rect­ly or in­di­rect­ly, in par­tic­u­lar by ref­er­ence to an iden­ti­fi­er such as a name, an iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber, lo­ca­tion da­ta, an on­line iden­ti­fi­er or to one or more fac­tors spe­cif­ic to the phys­i­cal, phys­i­o­log­i­cal, ge­net­ic, men­tal, eco­nom­ic, cul­tur­al or so­cial iden­ti­ty of that nat­ur­al person.

b) Da­ta subject
Da­ta sub­ject is any iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able nat­ur­al per­son, whose per­son­al da­ta is processed by the con­troller re­spon­si­ble for the processing.

c) Pro­cess­ing
Pro­cess­ing is any op­er­a­tion or set of op­er­a­tions which is per­formed on per­son­al da­ta or on sets of per­son­al da­ta, whether or not by au­to­mat­ed means, such as col­lec­tion, record­ing, or­gan­i­sa­tion, struc­tur­ing, stor­age, adap­ta­tion or al­ter­ation, re­trieval, con­sul­ta­tion, use, dis­clo­sure by trans­mis­sion, dis­sem­i­na­tion or oth­er­wise mak­ing avail­able, align­ment or com­bi­na­tion, re­stric­tion, era­sure or destruction.

d) Re­stric­tion of processing
Re­stric­tion of pro­cess­ing is the mark­ing of stored per­son­al da­ta with the aim of lim­it­ing their pro­cess­ing in the future.

e) Pro­fil­ing
Pro­fil­ing means any form of au­to­mat­ed pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta con­sist­ing of the use of per­son­al da­ta to eval­u­ate cer­tain per­son­al as­pects re­lat­ing to a nat­ur­al per­son, in par­tic­u­lar to analyse or pre­dict as­pects con­cern­ing that nat­ur­al per­son­’s per­for­mance at work, eco­nom­ic sit­u­a­tion, health, per­son­al pref­er­ences, in­ter­ests, re­li­a­bil­i­ty, be­hav­iour, lo­ca­tion or movements.

f) Pseu­do­nymi­sa­tion
Pseu­do­nymi­sa­tion is the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta in such a man­ner that the per­son­al da­ta can no longer be at­trib­uted to a spe­cif­ic da­ta sub­ject with­out the use of ad­di­tion­al in­for­ma­tion, pro­vid­ed that such ad­di­tion­al in­for­ma­tion is kept sep­a­rate­ly and is sub­ject to tech­ni­cal and or­gan­i­sa­tion­al mea­sures to en­sure that the per­son­al da­ta are not at­trib­uted to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able nat­ur­al person.

g) Con­troller or con­troller re­spon­si­ble for the processing
Con­troller or con­troller re­spon­si­ble for the pro­cess­ing is the nat­ur­al or le­gal per­son, pub­lic au­thor­i­ty, agency or oth­er body which, alone or joint­ly with oth­ers, de­ter­mines the pur­pos­es and means of the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta; where the pur­pos­es and means of such pro­cess­ing are de­ter­mined by Union or Mem­ber State law, the con­troller or the spe­cif­ic cri­te­ria for its nom­i­na­tion may be pro­vid­ed for by Union or Mem­ber State law.

h) Proces­sor
Proces­sor is a nat­ur­al or le­gal per­son, pub­lic au­thor­i­ty, agency or oth­er body which process­es per­son­al da­ta on be­half of the controller.

i) Re­cip­i­ent
Re­cip­i­ent is a nat­ur­al or le­gal per­son, pub­lic au­thor­i­ty, agency or an­oth­er body, to which the per­son­al da­ta are dis­closed, whether a third par­ty or not. How­ev­er, pub­lic au­thor­i­ties which may re­ceive per­son­al da­ta in the frame­work of a par­tic­u­lar in­quiry in ac­cor­dance with Union or Mem­ber State law shall not be re­gard­ed as re­cip­i­ents; the pro­cess­ing of those da­ta by those pub­lic au­thor­i­ties shall be in com­pli­ance with the ap­plic­a­ble da­ta pro­tec­tion rules ac­cord­ing to the pur­pos­es of the processing.

j) Third party
Third par­ty is a nat­ur­al or le­gal per­son, pub­lic au­thor­i­ty, agency or body oth­er than the da­ta sub­ject, con­troller, proces­sor and per­sons who, un­der the di­rect au­thor­i­ty of the con­troller or proces­sor, are au­tho­rised to process per­son­al data.

k) Con­sent
Con­sent of the da­ta sub­ject is any freely giv­en, spe­cif­ic, in­formed and un­am­bigu­ous in­di­ca­tion of the da­ta sub­jec­t’s wish­es by which he or she, by a state­ment or by a clear af­fir­ma­tive ac­tion, sig­ni­fies agree­ment to the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta re­lat­ing to him or her.

2. Name and Ad­dress of the controller

Con­troller for the pur­pos­es of the Gen­er­al Da­ta Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (GDPR), oth­er da­ta pro­tec­tion laws ap­plic­a­ble in Mem­ber states of the Eu­ro­pean Union and oth­er pro­vi­sions re­lat­ed to da­ta pro­tec­tion is:

Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath
Sonnenbergstr.12
70184 Stuttgart
Deutschland

Phone: +49 151 18482067
Email: info@quatome.com
Web­site: www.quatome.com

 

3. Col­lec­tion of gen­er­al da­ta and information

The web­site of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath col­lects a se­ries of gen­er­al da­ta and in­for­ma­tion when a da­ta sub­ject or au­to­mat­ed sys­tem calls up the web­site. This gen­er­al da­ta and in­for­ma­tion are stored in the serv­er log files. Col­lect­ed may be (1) the brows­er types and ver­sions used, (2) the op­er­at­ing sys­tem used by the ac­cess­ing sys­tem, (3) the web­site from which an ac­cess­ing sys­tem reach­es our web­site (so-called re­fer­rers), (4) the sub-web­sites, (5) the date and time of ac­cess to the In­ter­net site, (6) an In­ter­net pro­to­col ad­dress (IP ad­dress), (7) the In­ter­net ser­vice provider of the ac­cess­ing sys­tem, and (8) any oth­er sim­i­lar da­ta and in­for­ma­tion that may be used in the event of at­tacks on our in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­o­gy systems.

When us­ing these gen­er­al da­ta and in­for­ma­tion, the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath does not draw any con­clu­sions about the da­ta sub­ject. Rather, this in­for­ma­tion is need­ed to (1) de­liv­er the con­tent of our web­site cor­rect­ly, (2) op­ti­mize the con­tent of our web­site as well as its ad­ver­tise­ment, (3) en­sure the long-term vi­a­bil­i­ty of our in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­o­gy sys­tems and web­site tech­nol­o­gy, and (4) pro­vide law en­force­ment au­thor­i­ties with the in­for­ma­tion nec­es­sary for crim­i­nal pros­e­cu­tion in case of a cy­ber-at­tack. There­fore, the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath an­a­lyzes anony­mous­ly col­lect­ed da­ta and in­for­ma­tion sta­tis­ti­cal­ly, with the aim of in­creas­ing the da­ta pro­tec­tion and da­ta se­cu­ri­ty of our en­ter­prise, and to en­sure an op­ti­mal lev­el of pro­tec­tion for the per­son­al da­ta we process. The anony­mous da­ta of the serv­er log files are stored sep­a­rate­ly from all per­son­al da­ta pro­vid­ed by a da­ta subject.

 

4. Rou­tine era­sure and block­ing of per­son­al data

The da­ta con­troller shall process and store the per­son­al da­ta of the da­ta sub­ject on­ly for the pe­ri­od nec­es­sary to achieve the pur­pose of stor­age, or as far as this is grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor or oth­er leg­is­la­tors in laws or reg­u­la­tions to which the con­troller is sub­ject to.

If the stor­age pur­pose is not ap­plic­a­ble, or if a stor­age pe­ri­od pre­scribed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor or an­oth­er com­pe­tent leg­is­la­tor ex­pires, the per­son­al da­ta are rou­tine­ly blocked or erased in ac­cor­dance with le­gal requirements.

 

5. Rights of the da­ta subject

a) Right of confirmation

Each da­ta sub­ject shall have the right grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor to ob­tain from the con­troller the con­fir­ma­tion as to whether or not per­son­al da­ta con­cern­ing him or her are be­ing processed. If a da­ta sub­ject wish­es to avail him­self of this right of con­fir­ma­tion, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any em­ploy­ee of the controller.

b) Right of access
Each da­ta sub­ject shall have the right grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor to ob­tain from the con­troller free in­for­ma­tion about his or her per­son­al da­ta stored at any time and a copy of this in­for­ma­tion. Fur­ther­more, the Eu­ro­pean di­rec­tives and reg­u­la­tions grant the da­ta sub­ject ac­cess to the fol­low­ing information:

    • the pur­pos­es of the processing;
    • the cat­e­gories of per­son­al da­ta concerned;
    • the re­cip­i­ents or cat­e­gories of re­cip­i­ents to whom the per­son­al da­ta have been or will be dis­closed, in par­tic­u­lar re­cip­i­ents in third coun­tries or in­ter­na­tion­al organisations;
    • where pos­si­ble, the en­vis­aged pe­ri­od for which the per­son­al da­ta will be stored, or, if not pos­si­ble, the cri­te­ria used to de­ter­mine that period;
    • the ex­is­tence of the right to re­quest from the con­troller rec­ti­fi­ca­tion or era­sure of per­son­al da­ta, or re­stric­tion of pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta con­cern­ing the da­ta sub­ject, or to ob­ject to such processing;
    • the ex­is­tence of the right to lodge a com­plaint with a su­per­vi­so­ry authority;
    • where the per­son­al da­ta are not col­lect­ed from the da­ta sub­ject, any avail­able in­for­ma­tion as to their source;
    • the ex­is­tence of au­to­mat­ed de­ci­sion-mak­ing, in­clud­ing pro­fil­ing, re­ferred to in Ar­ti­cle 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those cas­es, mean­ing­ful in­for­ma­tion about the log­ic in­volved, as well as the sig­nif­i­cance and en­vis­aged con­se­quences of such pro­cess­ing for the da­ta subject.

c) Right to rectification

Each da­ta sub­ject shall have the right grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor to ob­tain from the con­troller with­out un­due de­lay the rec­ti­fi­ca­tion of in­ac­cu­rate per­son­al da­ta con­cern­ing him or her. Tak­ing in­to ac­count the pur­pos­es of the pro­cess­ing, the da­ta sub­ject shall have the right to have in­com­plete per­son­al da­ta com­plet­ed, in­clud­ing by means of pro­vid­ing a sup­ple­men­tary statement.

If a da­ta sub­ject wish­es to ex­er­cise this right to rec­ti­fi­ca­tion, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any em­ploy­ee of the controller.

 

d) Right to era­sure (Right to be forgotten)

Each da­ta sub­ject shall have the right grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor to ob­tain from the con­troller the era­sure of per­son­al da­ta con­cern­ing him or her with­out un­due de­lay, and the con­troller shall have the oblig­a­tion to erase per­son­al da­ta with­out un­due de­lay where one of the fol­low­ing grounds ap­plies, as long as the pro­cess­ing is not necessary:

  • The per­son­al da­ta are no longer nec­es­sary in re­la­tion to the pur­pos­es for which they were col­lect­ed or oth­er­wise processed.
  • The da­ta sub­ject with­draws con­sent to which the pro­cess­ing is based ac­cord­ing to point (a) of Ar­ti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Ar­ti­cle 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no oth­er le­gal ground for the processing.
  • The da­ta sub­ject ob­jects to the pro­cess­ing pur­suant to Ar­ti­cle 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no over­rid­ing le­git­i­mate grounds for the pro­cess­ing, or the da­ta sub­ject ob­jects to the pro­cess­ing pur­suant to Ar­ti­cle 21(2) of the GDPR.
  • The per­son­al da­ta have been un­law­ful­ly processed.
  • The per­son­al da­ta must be erased for com­pli­ance with a le­gal oblig­a­tion in Union or Mem­ber State law to which the con­troller is subject.
  • The per­son­al da­ta have been col­lect­ed in re­la­tion to the of­fer of in­for­ma­tion so­ci­ety ser­vices re­ferred to in Ar­ti­cle 8(1) of the GDPR.

If one of the afore­men­tioned rea­sons ap­plies, and a da­ta sub­ject wish­es to re­quest the era­sure of per­son­al da­ta stored by the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any em­ploy­ee of the con­troller. An em­ploy­ee of Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath shall prompt­ly en­sure that the era­sure re­quest is com­plied with immediately.

Where the con­troller has made per­son­al da­ta pub­lic and is oblig­ed pur­suant to Ar­ti­cle 17(1) to erase the per­son­al da­ta, the con­troller, tak­ing ac­count of avail­able tech­nol­o­gy and the cost of im­ple­men­ta­tion, shall take rea­son­able steps, in­clud­ing tech­ni­cal mea­sures, to in­form oth­er con­trollers pro­cess­ing the per­son­al da­ta that the da­ta sub­ject has re­quest­ed era­sure by such con­trollers of any links to, or copy or repli­ca­tion of, those per­son­al da­ta, as far as pro­cess­ing is not re­quired. An em­ploy­ees of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath will arrange the nec­es­sary mea­sures in in­di­vid­ual cases.

 

e) Right of re­stric­tion of processing
Each da­ta sub­ject shall have the right grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor to ob­tain from the con­troller re­stric­tion of pro­cess­ing where one of the fol­low­ing applies:

  • The ac­cu­ra­cy of the per­son­al da­ta is con­test­ed by the da­ta sub­ject, for a pe­ri­od en­abling the con­troller to ver­i­fy the ac­cu­ra­cy of the per­son­al data.
  • The pro­cess­ing is un­law­ful and the da­ta sub­ject op­pos­es the era­sure of the per­son­al da­ta and re­quests in­stead the re­stric­tion of their use instead.
  • The con­troller no longer needs the per­son­al da­ta for the pur­pos­es of the pro­cess­ing, but they are re­quired by the da­ta sub­ject for the es­tab­lish­ment, ex­er­cise or de­fence of le­gal claims.
  • The da­ta sub­ject has ob­ject­ed to pro­cess­ing pur­suant to Ar­ti­cle 21(1) of the GDPR pend­ing the ver­i­fi­ca­tion whether the le­git­i­mate grounds of the con­troller over­ride those of the da­ta subject.

If one of the afore­men­tioned con­di­tions is met, and a da­ta sub­ject wish­es to re­quest the re­stric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta stored by the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath, he or she may at any time con­tact any em­ploy­ee of the con­troller. The em­ploy­ee of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath will arrange the re­stric­tion of the processing.

 

f) Right to da­ta portability
Each da­ta sub­ject shall have the right grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor, to re­ceive the per­son­al da­ta con­cern­ing him or her, which was pro­vid­ed to a con­troller, in a struc­tured, com­mon­ly used and ma­chine-read­able for­mat. He or she shall have the right to trans­mit those da­ta to an­oth­er con­troller with­out hin­drance from the con­troller to which the per­son­al da­ta have been pro­vid­ed, as long as the pro­cess­ing is based on con­sent pur­suant to point (a) of Ar­ti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Ar­ti­cle 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a con­tract pur­suant to point (b) of Ar­ti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR, and the pro­cess­ing is car­ried out by au­to­mat­ed means, as long as the pro­cess­ing is not nec­es­sary for the per­for­mance of a task car­ried out in the pub­lic in­ter­est or in the ex­er­cise of of­fi­cial au­thor­i­ty vest­ed in the controller.
Fur­ther­more, in ex­er­cis­ing his or her right to da­ta porta­bil­i­ty pur­suant to Ar­ti­cle 20(1) of the GDPR, the da­ta sub­ject shall have the right to have per­son­al da­ta trans­mit­ted di­rect­ly from one con­troller to an­oth­er, where tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble and when do­ing so does not ad­verse­ly af­fect the rights and free­doms of others.
In or­der to as­sert the right to da­ta porta­bil­i­ty, the da­ta sub­ject may at any time con­tact any em­ploy­ee of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath.

 

g) Right to object
Each da­ta sub­ject shall have the right grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor to ob­ject, on grounds re­lat­ing to his or her par­tic­u­lar sit­u­a­tion, at any time, to pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta con­cern­ing him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Ar­ti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR. This al­so ap­plies to pro­fil­ing based on these provisions.

The Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath shall no longer process the per­son­al da­ta in the event of the ob­jec­tion, un­less we can demon­strate com­pelling le­git­i­mate grounds for the pro­cess­ing which over­ride the in­ter­ests, rights and free­doms of the da­ta sub­ject, or for the es­tab­lish­ment, ex­er­cise or de­fence of le­gal claims.

If the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath process­es per­son­al da­ta for di­rect mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es, the da­ta sub­ject shall have the right to ob­ject at any time to pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta con­cern­ing him or her for such mar­ket­ing. This ap­plies to pro­fil­ing to the ex­tent that it is re­lat­ed to such di­rect mar­ket­ing. If the da­ta sub­ject ob­jects to the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath to the pro­cess­ing for di­rect mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es, the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath will no longer process the per­son­al da­ta for these purposes.

In ad­di­tion, the da­ta sub­ject has the right, on grounds re­lat­ing to his or her par­tic­u­lar sit­u­a­tion, to ob­ject to pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta con­cern­ing him or her by the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath for sci­en­tif­ic or his­tor­i­cal re­search pur­pos­es, or for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­pos­es pur­suant to Ar­ti­cle 89(1) of the GDPR, un­less the pro­cess­ing is nec­es­sary for the per­for­mance of a task car­ried out for rea­sons of pub­lic interest.

In or­der to ex­er­cise the right to ob­ject, the da­ta sub­ject may con­tact any em­ploy­ee of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath. In ad­di­tion, the da­ta sub­ject is free in the con­text of the use of in­for­ma­tion so­ci­ety ser­vices, and notwith­stand­ing Di­rec­tive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to ob­ject by au­to­mat­ed means us­ing tech­ni­cal specifications.

 

h) Au­to­mat­ed in­di­vid­ual de­ci­sion-mak­ing, in­clud­ing profiling
Each da­ta sub­ject shall have the right grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor not to be sub­ject to a de­ci­sion based sole­ly on au­to­mat­ed pro­cess­ing, in­clud­ing pro­fil­ing, which pro­duces le­gal ef­fects con­cern­ing him or her, or sim­i­lar­ly sig­nif­i­cant­ly af­fects him or her, as long as the de­ci­sion (1) is not is nec­es­sary for en­ter­ing in­to, or the per­for­mance of, a con­tract be­tween the da­ta sub­ject and a da­ta con­troller, or (2) is not au­tho­rised by Union or Mem­ber State law to which the con­troller is sub­ject and which al­so lays down suit­able mea­sures to safe­guard the da­ta sub­jec­t’s rights and free­doms and le­git­i­mate in­ter­ests, or (3) is not based on the da­ta sub­jec­t’s ex­plic­it consent.

If the de­ci­sion (1) is nec­es­sary for en­ter­ing in­to, or the per­for­mance of, a con­tract be­tween the da­ta sub­ject and a da­ta con­troller, or (2) it is based on the da­ta sub­jec­t’s ex­plic­it con­sent, the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath shall im­ple­ment suit­able mea­sures to safe­guard the da­ta sub­jec­t’s rights and free­doms and le­git­i­mate in­ter­ests, at least the right to ob­tain hu­man in­ter­ven­tion on the part of the con­troller, to ex­press his or her point of view and con­test the decision.

If the da­ta sub­ject wish­es to ex­er­cise the rights con­cern­ing au­to­mat­ed in­di­vid­ual de­ci­sion-mak­ing, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any em­ploy­ee of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath.

i) Right to with­draw da­ta pro­tec­tion consent
Each da­ta sub­ject shall have the right grant­ed by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor to with­draw his or her con­sent to pro­cess­ing of his or her per­son­al da­ta at any time.
If the da­ta sub­ject wish­es to ex­er­cise the right to with­draw the con­sent, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any em­ploy­ee of the Quatome — Mar­tin Ehrath.

 

6. Le­gal ba­sis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the 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 par­ty, as is the case, for ex­am­ple, when pro­cess­ing op­er­a­tions are nec­es­sary for the sup­ply of goods or to pro­vide any oth­er ser­vice, the pro­cess­ing is based on Ar­ti­cle 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same ap­plies to such pro­cess­ing op­er­a­tions which are nec­es­sary for car­ry­ing out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­sures, for ex­am­ple in the case of in­quiries con­cern­ing our prod­ucts or ser­vices. Is our com­pa­ny sub­ject to a le­gal oblig­a­tion by which pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta is re­quired, such as for the ful­fill­ment of tax oblig­a­tions, the pro­cess­ing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cas­es, the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta may be nec­es­sary to pro­tect the vi­tal in­ter­ests of the da­ta sub­ject or of an­oth­er nat­ur­al per­son. This would be the case, for ex­am­ple, if a vis­i­tor were in­jured in our com­pa­ny and his name, age, health in­sur­ance da­ta or oth­er vi­tal in­for­ma­tion would have to be passed on to a doc­tor, hos­pi­tal or oth­er third par­ty. Then the pro­cess­ing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Fi­nal­ly, pro­cess­ing op­er­a­tions could be based on Ar­ti­cle 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This le­gal ba­sis is used for pro­cess­ing op­er­a­tions which are not cov­ered by any of the above­men­tioned le­gal grounds, if pro­cess­ing is nec­es­sary for the pur­pos­es of the le­git­i­mate in­ter­ests pur­sued by our com­pa­ny or by a third par­ty, ex­cept where such in­ter­ests are over­rid­den by the in­ter­ests or fun­da­men­tal rights and free­doms of the da­ta sub­ject which re­quire pro­tec­tion of per­son­al da­ta. Such pro­cess­ing op­er­a­tions are par­tic­u­lar­ly per­mis­si­ble be­cause they have been specif­i­cal­ly men­tioned by the Eu­ro­pean leg­is­la­tor. He con­sid­ered that a le­git­i­mate in­ter­est could be as­sumed if the da­ta sub­ject is a client of the con­troller (Recital 47 Sen­tence 2 GDPR).

 

7. The le­git­i­mate in­ter­ests pur­sued by the con­troller or by a third party

Where the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al da­ta is based on Ar­ti­cle 6(1) lit. f GDPR our le­git­i­mate in­ter­est is to car­ry out our busi­ness in fa­vor of the well-be­ing of all our em­ploy­ees and the shareholders.

 

8. Pe­ri­od for which the per­son­al da­ta will be stored

The cri­te­ria used to de­ter­mine the pe­ri­od of stor­age of per­son­al da­ta is the re­spec­tive statu­to­ry re­ten­tion pe­ri­od. Af­ter ex­pi­ra­tion of that pe­ri­od, the cor­re­spond­ing da­ta is rou­tine­ly delet­ed, as long as it is no longer nec­es­sary for the ful­fill­ment of the con­tract or the ini­ti­a­tion of a contract.

 

9. Pro­vi­sion of per­son­al da­ta as statu­to­ry or con­trac­tu­al re­quire­ment; Re­quire­ment nec­es­sary to en­ter in­to a con­tract; Oblig­a­tion of the da­ta sub­ject to pro­vide the per­son­al da­ta; pos­si­ble con­se­quences of fail­ure to pro­vide such data

We clar­i­fy that the pro­vi­sion of per­son­al da­ta is part­ly re­quired by law (e.g. tax reg­u­la­tions) or can al­so re­sult from con­trac­tu­al pro­vi­sions (e.g. in­for­ma­tion on the con­trac­tu­al part­ner). Some­times it may be nec­es­sary to con­clude a con­tract that the da­ta sub­ject pro­vides us with per­son­al da­ta, which must sub­se­quent­ly be processed by us. The da­ta sub­ject is, for ex­am­ple, oblig­ed to pro­vide us with per­son­al da­ta when our com­pa­ny signs a con­tract with him or her. The non-pro­vi­sion of the per­son­al da­ta would have the con­se­quence that the con­tract with the da­ta sub­ject could not be con­clud­ed. Be­fore per­son­al da­ta is pro­vid­ed by the da­ta sub­ject, the da­ta sub­ject must con­tact any em­ploy­ee. The em­ploy­ee clar­i­fies to the da­ta sub­ject whether the pro­vi­sion of the per­son­al da­ta is re­quired by law or con­tract or is nec­es­sary for the con­clu­sion of the con­tract, whether there is an oblig­a­tion to pro­vide the per­son­al da­ta and the con­se­quences of non-pro­vi­sion of the per­son­al data.

 

10. Ex­is­tence of au­to­mat­ed decision-making

As a re­spon­si­ble com­pa­ny, we do not use au­to­mat­ic de­ci­sion-mak­ing or profiling.
