What information we collect about you
We collect information about you when you provide it to us and when you use our services.
Information you provide to us
We collect information about you when you input it into our services or otherwise provide it directly to us.
Information you provide through our support channels: Our services also include our customer support, where you may choose to submit information regarding a problem you are experiencing with a service. Whether you designate yourself as a technical contact, open a support ticket through our customer support, speak to one of our representatives directly or otherwise engage with our support team, you will be asked to provide contact information, a summary of the problem you are experiencing, and any other documentation, screenshots or information that would be helpful in resolving the issue.
Content you provide through our websites: Our services also include our website, which is owned and/or operated by us. We may collect content that you submit to this website. For example, you provide content to us when you provide feedback through our office e-mail address displayed on our website.
Information we collect automatically when you use our services
We collect information about you when you use our services, including browsing our website.
On our website https://asqs.net we automatically log your IP address as well as the time and date of your visit, the web browser and operating system you use as well as its version numbers using third-party services like Google Analytics. We do this to provide technical support and ensure the safety of our services. We process your data on the basis of our prevailing legitimate interest to cost-efficiently generate easy to use website access statistics (Article 6(1)(f) General Data Protection Regulation). This data is stored for up to 12 months and then automatically deleted.
Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc.,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA (“Google”) helping us to track visitor behaviour and measure the site’s performance. Web analysis means the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors on websites. The cookies – text filesplaced on your computer – used are called performance/analytic cookies and collect information about your use of this site and enable us to continuously improve the way it works. Performance cookies show us the most frequently visited pages on our website, allow us to see the overall patterns of usage on the site, help us record any difficulties and give us information about the effectiveness of our advertising.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address and the URLs of the accessed pages) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We do not store any of your personal data collected in connection with Google Analytics.
How we use information we collect about you
How we use the information we collect depends in part on which of our services you and your organisation use, how you use them, and any preferences your organisation has communicated to us. Below are the specific purposes for which we use the information we collect about you.
Customer support: We use your information to resolve technical issues you encounter, to respond to your requests for assistance, to analyse crash information, and to repair and improve our website.
For safety and security: We use information about you and your service use to verify accounts and activity, and to monitor suspicious or fraudulent activity.
To protect our legitimate business interests and legal rights: Where required by law or where we believe it is necessary to protect our legal rights, interests and the interests of others, we use information about you in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory, and audit functions.
Legal bases for processing and the EU GDPR: If you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so under applicable EU laws. The legal bases depend on the services you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:
We need it to provide you with our services, provide customer support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of our services
It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the services and to protect our legal rights and interests
You give us consent to do so for a specific purpose
We need to process your data to comply with a contractual or legal obligation
If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place.
How we share information we collect
Sharing with third parties
ASQS does not share your information with third parties outside the clearly defined business purpose agreed upon with your organisation.
In exceptional circumstances, we may be required to share information about you with a third party if we believe that sharing is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, including to meet national security requirements, (b) enforce our agreements, policies and terms of service, (c) protect the security or integrity of our products and services, (d) protect ASQS, our customers or the public from harm or illegal activities, or (e) respond to an emergency which we believe in good faith requires us to disclose information to assist in preventing the death or serious bodily injury of any person.
Sharing with affiliated companies
How we store and secure information we collect
Information storage and security
We collect information globally and store that information primarily within the EEA. We therefore may have to transfer, process and store your information outside of your country of residence. We use state-of-the-art technical measures to secure your data.
While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others.
How long we keep information
How long we store information about you depends on the type of information, as described in further detail below. After such time, we will either delete or anonymise your information or, if this is not possible (for example, because the information has been stored in backup archives), we will securely store your information and isolate it from any further use until deletion is possible.
How to access and control your information
In direct contact with ASQS
When in direct contact with ASQS, for example, through our support channels or our sales department, you have the right to request a copy of your information; to object to our use of your information (including for marketing purposes); to request the deletion or restriction of your information; or to request your information in a structured, electronic format.
In some cases, you may ask us directly to stop storing, using and otherwise processing your information, where you believe we don’t have the appropriate rights to do so. For example, if you are no longer interested in receiving information from ASQS, you can request that we delete your personal information as provided in this policy. Where you gave us consent to use your information for a limited purpose, you can contact us to withdraw that consent, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place at the time. When you make such requests, we may need time to investigate and facilitate your request. If there is delay or dispute as to whether we have the right to continue using your information, we will restrict any further use of your information until the request is honoured or the dispute is resolved.
To exercise your rights under Regulations (EU) 2016/679 please contact our Data Protection responsible through the following e-mail address: dataprotection [at] asqs.net
International Transfers of Information
We collect information globally and store that information primarily within the EEA. We may transfer, process and store your information outside of your country of residence, to wherever we operate for the purpose of providing you our services. Whenever we transfer your information, we take steps to protect it.
International transfers within ASQS: To facilitate our global operations, we may transfer information to either Austria or Germany and allow access to that information from countries in which ASQS owned or operated companies have operations for the purposes described in this policy. These countries may not have equivalent privacy and data protection laws to the laws of many of the countries where our customers and users are based. When we share information about you with ASQS corporate affiliates, we make use of standard contractual data protection clauses, which have been approved by the European Commission.
Our policy towards children
ASQS is a highly innovative software provider in the field of Aviation, Maritime and Offshore Safety and Quality Management Systems (SMS and QMS). As such, we offer specialised tools intended for the use within certain organisations and our services are therefore not intended for private use.
This is also the reason, why our services are not directed to individuals under 16. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information, please contact our support services.
