K2 Interactive GmbH, the operator of qeep, takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. The following declaration informs you of how we use your data and thereby guarantee data protection.

1. Object of Declaration of Privacy & Site Responsibility

The object of this declaration is to confirm, explain, and declare the collection, processing and use ("usage") of personal data ("data") which we, K2 Interactive GmbH ("K2 Interactive"), collect when you use our provisions ("services"), particularly qeep.

The site responsible in the sense of the Data Protection Law is K2 Interactive GmbH. If you have any questions on the use of your data, please send an Email to [email protected]

In the following, the possibilities for using your data are briefly outlined. Please note that not all data is actually used for all purposes and that for individual services, additional information may be given through separate data protection declarations as appropriate.

2. Collection of Data

K2 Interactive collects data when you become a member of qeep or visit or use general services:

a) When you set up a user account and profile, we ask you for certain information about your person. Of these, only that information we need for the contractual relationship or running the services provided is compulsory information.

b) If you visit or use the services, K2 Interactive automatically collects and stores in our server logs technical information which your browser or your mobile phone submits to us.

3. Processing and Use of Data

K2 Interactive uses the data collected for four basic purposes, whereby not all data is actually used for all purposes:

a) We use the data in your user account on your person and address (stock data) to establish and administer the contract of use.

b) We use the data on your use of individual services (usage data) for technically processing and billing these services. This can prevent usage data on various services being merged for billing purposes.

c) Furthermore, we assess usage profiles for market research and to improve our services, but only as appropriate and after application of a pseudonym (which cannot be merged with the data on your user account). Additionally, such use only occurs insofar as you have not made use of your legal right to refuse the use of your data.

d) Furthermore, we also use your data to tailor contents including advertising offers to your personal interests and/or inform you of special offers or new products.

b) The transfer is necessary to implement or bill for services, particularly if

c) You claim the services of an independent partner company by the use of the service or

d) A vicarious agent needs this data to process the service (such vicarious agents are, insofar as you are not expressly informed otherwise, only authorised to the extent of usage if this is needed for the service)

e) Criminal prosecution authorities or courts require information for the purposes of criminal prosecution to the extent of the applicable laws.

Furthermore, individual non-personal information may be shared with third parties for the sole purpose of tailoring advertising on other applications or websites. If you wish to opt-ut of such sharing, please send an email including your user name to dataoptout(at)qeep.net.

5. Deletion and Processing of Data

If your data is no longer required for the purposes mentioned above, including billing, it is deleted. Please note that for any deletion the data is initially only blocked and then only eventually deleted after a time delay, to prevent inadvertent deletions or any intentional damages. For technical reasons, data is duplicated as appropriate in back-up files and mirrors of services as appropriate. Such copies are also deleted as appropriate only with a technically qualified time delay.

You are entitled to see the personal data stored about your person and adjustments to your user account at any time, and correct, extend or delete them.

6. Data Security

K2 Interactive takes efforts to protect your data from unauthorised access, loss, abuse or destruction. Your personal data is only accessible to those employees, including employees of partner companies, which need to have necessary perusal of your data, to exercise their activity properly and to be able to provide to you our products and services in the best possible way. Furthermore, to protect your personal data, we have to take process technology and electronic protection measures.

7. Protection against Spam

K2 Interactive ensures you that we only use your Email address and mobile telephone number with your express agreement for the purposes given in the conditions of use. We shall not sell your Email address or mobile telephone number to third parties, and prevent your Email address or mobile phone number from being recorded by "web crawlers" or "spiders", to the extent that this is in our power.
