6. Cookies and tracking

We use cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies for various purposes, including to analyze trends, administer the website, track user’s movements around the website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on computer hard drives. A cookie enables the entity that put the cookie on your device to recognize it across different websites, services, devices, and browsing sessions. For example, we may use cookies to recognize you when you return to the websites in order to provide you with a better user experience. We may allow third parties to use cookies on the websites but we do not control the use or contents of third party cookies. Web browsers often allow you to configure the browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is sent. If you elect to reject cookies, please note that you may not be able to take full advantage of the features and functions of the Sites. Web beacons and similar technologies are small bits of code, which are embedded in web pages, advertisements, and e-mails, that communicate with third parties. Web browsers may allow you to send »Do Not Track« requests. We do not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because there is no current industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard if and when one is created.

Attachment A:

 

1. Rights of individuals

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (»EEA«), you may have all the rights as described below.

1.1 What rights do you have?

As an affected person, you generally have the following data protection rights:

a) Information

You have the right to receive information about the data stored about you at ZeeQuest as well as the scope of the data that is processed and shared, and to obtain a copy of your personal data that we have on file.

b) Correction

You have the right to request immediate correction of information related to you that is incorrect as well as completion of incomplete personal data that ZeeQuest has on file for you.

c) Deletion

You have the right to request immediate deletion of the personal data on file for you at ZeeQuest if the statutory requirements for doing so have been met.
This is the case in particular if:

  • your personal data are no longer needed for the purposes for which they were collected;
  • your consent formed the sole legal basis for processing the data and you have revoked this consent;
  • you object to processing for personal reasons on the legal basis of a weighing of interests and we cannot prove that there are overriding legitimate interests in favor of the processing;
  • your personal data have been unlawfully processed; or
  • your personal data must be deleted in order to comply with statutory requirements.

If we have incorrectly disclosed your data to third parties, we will inform such third parties about the deletion if this is required by law.

Please note that your right to deletion is subject to restrictions. For example, we must or may not delete any data that we are required to retain on the basis of statutory retention periods. Data that we need to assert, exercise or defend legal claims is also exempt from your right to deletion.

d) Limitation of processing

Under certain conditions you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be limited (i.e. the designation of stored personal data with the aim of limiting future processing of it). These conditions are:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is disputed and ZeeQuest must review the accuracy of the personal data;
  • The processing is unlawful, but you do not want the personal data deleted and instead request that the use of the personal data be limited;
  • ZeeQuest no longer needs your personal data for the purpose of processing, but you need the data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
  • You have objected to the processing of your personal data, but it is still not clear whether the legitimate interests of ZeeQuest outweigh your interests.

If the processing is limited, your data will be designated accordingly and will – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of natural persons or legal entities.

e) Data transferability

If we process the personal data that you have provided us on the basis of your consent or a contract (including your employment contract) in an automated manner, you have the right to receive the data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and to transmit these data to another data controller without being prevented from doing so by ZeeQuest. You also have the right to request that the personal data be transmitted directly from ZeeQuest to another data controller if this is technically feasible and provided that doing so does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

f) Objection

If we process your personal data on the basis of legitimate interests or in the public interest, you have the right to object to the processing of your data for personal reasons. You also have an unlimited right to object if we process your data for our direct advertising.

g) Revocation of consent

If you have granted consent for the processing of your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time. Note that such revocation only applies to future processing. Any processing carried out before the revocation is not affected.

1.2 More information about your right to object

a) The right to object for personal reasons

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation. The prerequisite for this is that the data processing is carried out in the public interest or on the basis of a weighing of interests. This also applies for profiling.
If we process your personal data on the basis of a weighing of interests, we generally assume that there are compelling legitimate reasons for doing so, but we will of course review each individual case.

If we receive an objection, we will no longer process your personal data, unless:

  • we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing these data that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms; or
  • your personal data help us to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
b) Object to the processing of your data for our direct advertising

If we process your personal data for direct advertising purposes, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for such purposes at any time; this also applies for profiling, if the profiling is connected with such direct advertising.
If you object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose.

c) Exercising the right to object

The objection does not require the use of a form; it should be sent to the address specified in this data protection notice.

2. Will your data be transmitted to a third country?

Data may be transmitted to third countries (i.e. countries that are not members of the European Union or the European Economic Area) if doing is required for the provision of services to you, if it is required by law or you have given us your consent. In addition, we may also forward your personal data to processors in third countries.

Please note that not all third countries have a level of data protection recognized as adequate by the European Commission. If data is transmitted to third countries where the level of data protection is not adequate, we will try to ensure that the recipient either has an adequate level of data protection (e.g. through self-certification by the recipient as part of the EU-US Privacy Shield, or the agreement of the European Union’s so-called EU standard contractual clauses with the recipient) or the express consent of our users.

You can obtain from us a copy of the specifically applicable or agreed rules ensuring an adequate level of data protection.
