Data Protection

We are very pleased that you are interested in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH. In principle, the Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH website can be used without providing any personal data. If a data subject wishes to use our company’s special services via our website, processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH. With this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Data subjects are also informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH, as the controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

4. Cookies

The Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and saved on a computer system via an Internet browser.
Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.
By using cookies, Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
A cookie can be used to optimize the information and offers on our website in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The user of a website that uses cookies, for example, does not have to enter his access data every time he visits the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, under certain circumstances not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information are stored in the server’s log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that use an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber-attack. This anonymously collected data and information are therefore statistically evaluated by Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

6. Subscription to our newsletter

On the Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter. The personal data that is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when you order the newsletter is determined from the input mask used for this purpose.
The Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers from the company. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address entered by the data subject for the first time for sending the newsletter in a double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the email address as the person concerned has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.
When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the controller.
The personal data collected when you register for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by email if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for a registration in this regard, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical circumstances. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service is not passed on to third parties.
The data subject can cancel the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for sending the newsletter, can be revoked at any time. To withdraw consent there is a corresponding link in every newsletter. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller or notify the controller in another way.

7. Newsletter tracking

The Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH can recognize whether and when an email was opened by a data subject and which links in the email were called up by the data subject.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimize the sending of the newsletter and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent relating to this, which is made using the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter, Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH automatically interprets it as a revocation.

8. Contact option via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website of Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH contains information that enables quick electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by email or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted to the data controller on a voluntary basis by a data subject is stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

9. Comment function in the blog on the website

The Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the person responsible for processing. A blog is a portal that is usually listed on a website and can be viewed publicly, in which one or more people, called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.
If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject are saved and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the data subject’s Internet service provider (ISP) is also logged. The IP address is saved for security reasons and if the data subject violates the rights of third parties by posting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for the processing, so that he could, if necessary, exculpate himself in the event of an infringement. The personal data collected will not be passed on to third parties unless such transfer is required by law or to serve as legal defense for the controller.

10. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

The comments made on the Functional Safety & Quality Experts GmbH blog can generally be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commentator to subscribe to the comments following a comment on a particular blog post. If a data subject chooses the option to subscribe to comments, the controller sends an automatic confirmation email, to double-check whether the owner of the email address provided has opted for this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be terminated at any time.

11. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The data controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the storage purpose or if this is done by the European legislator or other legislator in laws or regulations, which of the data controllers subject, was provided.

17. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in 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 a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR are based.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

18. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in carrying out our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

19. Duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.

20. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data. Necessity for the conclusion of the contract. Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data. Possible consequences of not providing

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contracting party).
Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned.
Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.
