- What is Personal Data?
Personal Data is any information relating to personal or material circumstances that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. This includes, for example, your name, date of birth, e-mail address, postal address, or telephone number as well as online identifiers such as your IP address. In contrast, information of a general nature that cannot be used to determine your identity is not Personal Data. This includes, for example, the number of users of a website.
- What is processing?
“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon Personal Data, whether or not by automatic means. The term is broad and covers virtually any handling of data.

Responsible for data processing is RiTZELMUt Ventures GmbH, Thorwaldsenstraße 3, 12157 Berlin
Germany (“QR Cloud”, “we”, “us” or “our”). We act as the data controller and ask you to direct all questions about your Personal Data directly to us using firstname.lastname@example.org or write us to the above address.
- The Legal Bases for processing Personal Data
In accordance with the above-mentioned laws, we have to have at least one of the following legal bases to process your Personal Data:
- you have given your consent,
- the data is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract / pre-contractual measures,
- the data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation or
- the data is necessary to protect our legitimate interests, provided that your interests are not overridden.
Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us.
You can recognise an encrypted connection if the address line of your browser contains a “https://” instead of a “http://” and also has a lock symbol. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
We have also implemented numerous security measures (“technical and organizational measures”) for example encryption or need to know access, to ensure the most complete protection of Personal Data processed through this website.
Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. And databases or data sets that include Personal Data may be breached inadvertently or through wrongful intrusion.
Upon becoming aware of a data breach, we will notify all affected individuals whose Personal Data may have been compromised as expeditiously as possible after which the breach was discovered.
We do not request Personal Data from minors and children and do not knowingly collect such data or pass it on to third parties.

The following provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, together with links to their privacy policies, which contain further information on the processing of data and so-called opt-out measures, if any:
