This does not apply if statutory provisions prevent deletion, if further storage is necessary for the purpose of presenting evidence, or if you have expressly agreed to longer storage.

6. To whom does QUISS pass on my data?

To so-called contract processors, these are companies that we commission to process data within the statutory framework, Article 28 GDPR (service providers, vicarious agents). In this case QUISS still remains responsible for the protection of your data. We commission companies in the following areas in particular: IT, sales, marketing, finances, consulting, customer service, human resources, logistics, and printing.

To cooperation partners, who on their own responsibility provide services for you in conjunction with your contract with QUISS. This is the case if you commission services of such partners from us, or if you consent to the integration of the partner, or if we integrate the partner based on a legal authorization.

Due to legal obligation we are in certain cases, legally obligated to transmit certain data to the requesting government authority.

7. Where will my data be processed?

Your data will always be processed in Germany and the European Union. If, in exceptional cases, your data is also processed in countries outside the European Union and the European Economic Area (i.e. in so-called third countries), this occurs if you have expressly consented to this arrangement, or if it is required for our provision of services to you, or if it is provided for by law (Article 49 GDPR). Moreover, your data will only be processed in third countries if certain measures have been taken to ensure that an appropriate level of data protection exists for this purpose (e.g. EU Commission adequacy decision or so-called suitable guarantees, Article 44 ff. of the GDPR).

8. How long will my data be stored?

The personal data of the person concerned (data subject) will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if the European or national legislation has provided for this in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the responsible party (controller) is subject. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless the necessity for further storage of the data exists for the formation or performance of a contract.
