Each time you access our website and each time you retrieve a file, data about this process is collected by us/our service provider/website host and is stored in a log file. After no more than seven days, the personal data is anonymised by truncating the IP address and sent to us. As a result, we collect the following information and store it until it is automatically deleted:
The stated data is processed for the following purposes:
1.2 Forms on our website
We use forms to request information from you at various points on our website. This is necessary to enable us to contact you, to give you access to exclusive content or to plan events. According to Article 6(1)(1) of the GDPR , your express consent is required each time, which we also obtain.
Users’ information can be stored in our Customer Relationship Management System and marketing automation platform ("CRM & Marketing System") or comparable request organisation.
Any personal data collected will be deleted after the statutory retention periods have expired. If necessary, we will forward personal data within Quanos Content Solutions to the correct recipient in order to process your request. You can revoke your consent to the processing of your data at any time. In mailings, you can do this by clicking on the unsubscribe button.

We do not pass your data on to third parties outside of Quanos Content Solutions for purposes other than the following. We will pass your data on to third parties only if:
Our website uses ‘cookies’ in several places. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and which your browser saves. The purpose of cookies is to make our website more user friendly and secure.
The cookies we use are on the one hand so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after the end of the browser session.
On the other hand, additional cookies are permanently stored in the browser. The information that cookies are used on the website will only be displayed again after these cookies have been deleted.
Cookies do not cause any damage to your server, nor do they contain any viruses, trojans or other malware.

4. Google Analytics
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html or at
5. Google Ads Remarketing
We use the remarketing function within the Google Ads service. With the remarketing function, we can present users of our website with advertisements based on their interests on other websites within the Google advertising network (in Google Search or on YouTube, so-called "Google Ads" or on other websites). For this purpose, the interaction of the users on our website is analyzed, e.g. which offers the user was interested in, in order to be able to display targeted advertising to the users on other sites even after they have visited our website. For this purpose, Google stores cookies on the end devices of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network. These cookies are used to record the visits of these users. The cookies are used to uniquely identify a web browser on a specific end device and not to identify a person.
Transfers to third countries are possible. So-called standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO have been concluded as suitable guarantees. Further information can be found here: ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu_de.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly, in particular the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving any third-party ads; b) by installing the plug-in provided by Google at the following link: www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign "About Ads" via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies; d) by permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internetexplorer or Google Chrome under the link www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin, e) by means of the corresponding cookie setting. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer in full.
Lifetime of cookies: up to 180 days (this only applies to cookies set via this website).
Legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 DSGVO
6. LinkedIn (Insight Tag):
We use the so-called conversion tracking with LinkedIn Insights Tag, a tool of LinkedIn Ireland, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, on our website. For this purpose, the LinkedIn Insight Tag is integrated on our pages and a cookie is set on your end device by LinkedIn. This informs LinkedIn that you have visited our web pages, whereby your IP address is also collected. In addition, timestamps and events such as page views are stored. This enables us to statistically evaluate the use of our website in order to constantly optimize it. We learn, for example, through which LinkedIn ad or interaction on LinkedIn you came to our website. This allows us to better control the display of our advertising.
The data is encrypted, anonymized within seven days, and the anonymized data is deleted within 90 days.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
7. Online conferences via "SCOOCS“
7.1 Purpose of the processing
We use the "SCOOCS" tool to conduct online conferences. "SCOOCS" is a service provided by SCOOCS OÜ, located in Estonia.
7.2 Person responsible
Quanos Content Solutions GmbH is responsible for data processing directly related to the execution of online conferences.
Note: If you call up the website of "SCOOCS", the provider of "SCOOCS" is responsible for data processing.
7.3 Which data is processed?
When using "SCOOCS", different types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the information you provide before or during participation in an online conference.
The following personal data are processed:
User details: first name, last name, telephone (optional), e-mail address, password (if "Single-Sign-On" is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional).
Meeting metadata: Subject, Description (optional), Attendee IP addresses, Device/Hardware information.
For recordings (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of online meeting chat.
When dialing in by phone: information on incoming and outgoing phone number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be saved.
Text, audio and video data: You may be able to use the chat, question or survey functions in an "online meeting". To this extent, the text entries you make are processed in order to display and, if necessary, log them in an online conference. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera on the terminal device are processed for the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the "SCOOCS" applications.
In order to participate in an online conference or enter the "meeting room", you must at least provide information about your name.
7.4 Scope of processing
We use "SCOOCS" to conduct online conferences. If we want to record online conferences, we will inform you transparently in advance and - if necessary - ask for your consent. The fact of the recording will also be displayed in the "SCOOCS" app.
If it is necessary for the purpose of recording the results of an online conference, we will log the chat contents.
For recording and follow-up purposes, we may also process questions asked by conference participants.
If you are registered as a user at "SCOOCS", reports on online conferences (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored for up to one month at "SCOOCS".
Automated decision-making within the meaning of Article 22 GDPR is not used.
7.5 Receiver / passing on of data
Personal data processed in connection with participation in online conferences are generally not passed on to third parties, unless they are specifically intended to be passed on. Please note that content from online conferences as well as from personal meetings often serves the purpose of communicating information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on.
Other recipients: The provider of "SCOOCS" necessarily obtains knowledge of the above-mentioned data, insofar as this is provided for in our contract processing agreement with "SCOOCS".
