Data collection on this website

 No personal data is given away when using this website, with exception of the IP-adress (see below "Log files"). Should you choose to contact us, the corresponding data (name and email address or telephone number) will be stored and processed for communication purposes. You can ask for the deletion of this data at any time. Your data will not be relayed to third parties.

We would like to expressly point out that the transfer of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) is susceptible to security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.

We offer to encrypt e-mail communication via public-private key pair. This would reasonably safeguard the content of communication, although the meta data would still be vulnerable to unauthorised access by third parties.

 

Data collection on contract execution/completion

 The relaying of personal data to third parties only takes place when it is neccessary for the execution of the contract. Additionally, the data is relayed only when you have explicitly agreed to this procedure. After the fulfillment of the contract or the end of our business partnership, your personal data will be deleted after the mandatory data retention period. We process the data as per Art 6. (1)(b) GDPR.

 

Information and deletion rights

 You have the right to to request information, at any time and free of charge, on the source, recipients and storage purpose of your personal data. Furthermore, you have the right to insist on the correction, blocking, and deletion of your data. For this matter, you may contact the responsible party directly or the statutory data protection officer. In addition, you have the right to file a complaint with the regulatory authorities. SimCog Technologies is registered in Hamburg and the corresponding authorities are the Landesdatenschutzbeauftrage Hamburg ( https://www.bfdi.bund.de/SharedDocs/Adressen/LfD/Hamburg.html?nn=5217144 ).
