The protection of your personal data is important to us. With this Privacy Policy we would like to inform you about the nature and extent of the personal data we collect as well as about the purposes for which this data is collected and used.

Collection and use of your personal data

Basically, you can visit www.quantumcourage.com without informing us about who you are. However, some data is collected automatically as e.g. which areas of www.quantumcourage.com you visit and how you interact with www.quantumcourage.com. This includes information resulting from the interaction with the website, services, contents or advertisements, including information about your computer and internet access, navigation data, statistics on page impressions, shortened IP address and weblog information. This data is exclusively evaluated to improve our offer and does not permit any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide us with such data when creating a customer account or placing an order, e.g. by completing a respective form. Any data you enter into the form, such as your name, address, email address, purchase history and payment information, will be stored and used by us without your express consent only for the purpose of rendering our services and fulfilling or performing a contract concluded with you, as the case may be. If your data is no longer needed, such as for issuing invoices, it will be either deleted or blocked and deleted after expiry of the period in which it is obligatory to preserve records pursuant to tax and commercial law.

If you subscribed to our newsletter with your email address, your email address will be used for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You may unsubscribe at any time (see under marketing).

Furthermore, we may use your personal data in order to:

  • solve problems and settle disputes;
  • guarantee the security of member accounts;
  • prevent, reveal or investigate possibly forbidden or illegal activities and to enforce our General Terms and Conditions.

Cookies

The information provided by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States.

Google will use this data to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activities for the website operators and provide other services associated with the use of the website and the Internet.
