Which of your data do we process? And for what purposes?

If we have received data from you, we will only process it for the purposes for which we received or collected it. We primarily process personal data for the fulfillment or initiation of business relationships. This mostly involves general contact data and communication content that is processed using our customer relationship management system. Your data is also used jointly by us at "queo" for acquisition and relationship management. 

Data processing for other purposes only comes into consideration if the legal requirements necessary in this respect pursuant to Art. 6 (4) DSGVO exist. We will, of course, comply with any information obligations pursuant to Art. 13 (3) DSGVO and Art. 14 (4) DSGVO in this case.

What is the legal basis for this?

As a rule, we process your data for the fulfillment or initiation of business relationships (Art. 6 para. 1 lit b) DSGVO). Furthermore, at "queo" we process your data jointly for acquisition and relationship management based on our legitimate interests in an economic and stable business operation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit f) DSGVO). 

If we process data on the basis of a balance of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the requirements of Art. 21 DSGVO.

How long will the data be stored?

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose. 

Insofar as statutory retention obligations exist - e.g. under commercial law or tax law - the personal data concerned will be stored for the duration of the retention obligation. After expiry of the retention obligation, a check is made as to whether there is a further need for processing. If there is no longer a necessity, the data is deleted. 

As a matter of principle, we carry out an examination of data towards the end of a calendar year with regard to the need for further processing. Due to the volume of data, this check is carried out with regard to specific types of data or purposes of processing. 

Of course, you can request information about the data we have stored about you at any time (see below) and, in the event that it is not necessary, request deletion of the data or restriction of processing.

To which recipients is the data passed on?

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, the transfer is permissible on the basis of a balancing of interests in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, we are legally obligated to the transfer or you have given your consent in this respect.

Where is the data processed?

We generally align our processes and IT infrastructure to process your personal data on our business premises or in data centers in the Federal Republic of Germany. However, in the course of our cooperation, we may use "tools" (e.g. Microsoft Teams, Slack) for communication or project management that also process your data outside the Federal Republic of Germany. In this context, we make sure that the tools used (or their providers) carry out the data processing within the EU and can demonstrate an appropriate level of data protection.

Your rights as a "data subject"

You have the right to request information about the personal data we process about you. 

In the case of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then require evidence from you that proves that you are the person you claim to be. 

Furthermore, you have a right to rectification or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law. 

Furthermore, you have a right to object to processing within the scope of the law. The same applies to a right to data portability. 

In particular, you have the right to object to the processing of your data in connection with direct marketing, if this is carried out on the basis of a balancing of interests, in accordance with Article 21 (1) and (2) DSGVO.
