References and links

In the case of direct or indirect reference to any and all third party internet websites (hyperlinks) which lie outside the responsibility of EQS Group AG, liability would only and exclusively be accepted if and when the author possessed knowledge of such and if and when it would have been technically possible and feasible for him to have prevented the use of such illegal contents.

Information on data protection

The protection of your informational self-determination and privacy is very important to us, EQS Group AG. For this reason, we only collect, process and use personal information in accordance with the applicable legal regulations of data protection and data security. Above all, data avoidance is the predominant basic principle.

The following details are for your information. Please be aware that the EQS Group AG websites may contain links to websites of other providers, to which this data privacy statement does not apply.

Anonymous data collection

Essentially, you are able to visit the EQS Group AG website without providing any information about yourself. Our web server only saves the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us and information about which of our websites you visit. This information is evaluated for statistical purposes. As an individual user, you remain anonymous. In particular, we will not save or process any personal details, such as your name, address, telephone number or email address.

Collection and processing of personal data

Personal information is only collected to the degree in which you provide it to us, for the execution of a contract or when registering for personalised services. As part of the services provided by EQS Group AG, your registration data is only processed internally subject to your agreement for the purposes of marketing and market research and for the tailored design of electronic services. This data is subject to technical and organisational security measures, particularly encrypted transmission, in order to counteract misuse of data by third parties.

Usage of personal information

The personal information will only be used to process your contract and deal with your inquiries. In addition, your data is only used for the purposes of advertising and market research and for the tailored design of electronic services of EQS Group AG if you have provided us with your consent to do this. As the consent to use your data for the aforementioned purposes may also include transmitting your data to the holding company EQS Group AG, your data may also be forwarded at this point. Moreover, your details will not be forwarded to any other third parties.

Use of Cookies

This website uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and which allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The cookies used by our web servers are normally so-called "session cookies" which are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of your browsing session. Other cookies remain on your computer system and enable us to recognise your computer when you visit the website again (so-called persistent cookies). The information contained in cookies, which can also be personal, is read out by our web servers when our website is requested again. This information will be used for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities for the website operators and providing other services relating to website and internet usage. The information is only transmitted to third parties if this is legally required. You may refuse the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you agree to the processing of the information collected about you in the aforementioned manner and for the aforementioned purpose.

Web-tracking Tool

This website uses etracker GmbH technology (www.etracker.com) to collect and store data for marketing and optimisation purposes. This data can be used to create usage profiles under a pseudonym. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the visitor’s internet browser. It is possible to use these cookies to recognise the internet browser. The data collected by the etracker technology will not be used to determine the personal identity of a website visitor, and will not be compiled with personal data relating to the person referred to by the pseudonym, unless agreed to separately by the person concerned. The collection and storage of data may be revoked here at any time with effect for the future.

The Data Privacy Seal of Approval shown here guarantees 100% data privacy-compliant web analyses.


Use of Facebook plugin "Like"

This website also uses plugins provided by the social network facebook.com (http://www.facebook.com), operated by Facebook, Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (subsequently referred to as Facebook). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo or an appropriate addition.

Whenever a website that contains such a social plugin, is called up, the plugin prompts the browser you are using to load and display the optical visualisation of the plugin from the Facebook server. This informs the Facebook server which website you are currently using. If you are logged into Facebook at the same time, this information is allocated to your personal user account on Facebook. If you now confirm one of the plugins by clicking for instance the "Like" button or by adding a comment, this is sent and saved to your personal user account on Facebook.

If you want to avoid direct data transmission to your Facebook account, we recommend only visiting our website when you are not logged into Facebook. The data privacy information on Facebook will provide you with further information about the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights concerning this and the settings available to protect your privacy.

Use of the Google Plus plugin "+1"

Our internet site uses the "+1" button of the Google Plus social network, operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The button is recognisable from the "+1" symbol on a white or coloured background.

If you open a website with such a button on our internet site, your browser establishes a direct connection to Google's servers. The content of the "+1" button is sent by Google directly to your browser and integrated by this browser into the website. We therefore have no influence on the extent of data that Google collects using the button. According to Google, no personal details are collected without clicking on the "+1" button. Such data, including your IP address, is only collected and processed from logged-in members.

The purpose and extent of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Google and your related rights and setting options for protecting your privacy can be found in Google’s privacy policy regarding the "+1" button: http://www.google.com/intl/en/+/policy/+1button.html and the FAQs.

If you are a Google Plus member and do not wish Google to collect data about you via our internet site and link these with your membership data stored at Google, you must log out of Google Plus before visiting our internet site.
