Such personal data transmitted to us by you on a voluntary basis will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting you. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
Stored personal data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to their storage, if their knowledge is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which they were stored, or if their storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons. Upon written request, we will gladly inform you about the personal data stored about you.

Prohibit Google Analytics from tracking me
Our concern in the sense of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised. The Google Analytics component is used to analyse the visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.
If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign visits to our pages to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
On our pages, components from LinkedIn Corporation are integrated. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that allows users to connect to existing business contacts and make new business contacts.
Xing components are integrated on our pages. Xing is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect to existing business contacts and make new business contacts. The individual users can create a personal profile of themselves at Xing. Companies can, for example, create company profiles or publish job offers on Xing.
Xing’s operating company is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, on which an Xing component (Xing plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on your system is automatically prompted by the respective Xing component to download a representation of the corresponding Xing component from Xing. More information about the Xing plug-ins can be found at https://dev.xing.com/plugins . As part of this technical process, Xing receives information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by them.
If you are logged in to Xing at the same time, Xing recognizes which specific page of our website you are visiting. This information is collected by the Xing component and assigned to your Xing account by Xing. If you press one of the Xing buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Share” button, Xing assigns this information to your personal Xing user account and saves this personal data.
Xing always receives information via the Xing component that you have visited our website if you are logged in to Xing at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether you click on the Xing component or not. If you do not want this information to be transmitted to Xing in this way, you can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of your Xing account before accessing our website.
The data protection regulations published by Xing, which can be accessed at https://www.xing.com/privacy, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Xing. Furthermore, Xing has published data protection information for the XING Share button at https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.
Data protection for applications and in the application process
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. The processing can also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website, to the data controller. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the data controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG).
Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain their consent for a specific purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations which are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If we are subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order 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 site were injured and his name, age, health insurance information or other vital information would have to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO). If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.
Legal basis of the processing
Regular deletion and blocking of personal data.
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or if this is provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Body or another legislator in laws or regulations to which we are subject.
If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Body or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
You have the right to information, correction, deletion (“right to be forgotten”), restriction, data transferability, revocation of consent and opposition to your personal data.
Please address your inquiries and requests to us:
by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
by mail: Qcrypt AG, Kiefholzstraße 1, 12435 Berlin, Germany
The deletion of the stored personal data takes place if you revoke your consent for storage, if their knowledge is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose pursued with the storage or if their storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons.
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Germany, these are the locally responsible state data protection officers.
