We process your data in accordance with statutory provisions, particularly the Telemedia Act, REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL, dated 27 April 2016, on the protection of individuals concerning the processing of personal data, on the free movement of such data and the repeal of Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (hereinafter referred to as DSGVO for short) and the Federal Data Protection Act.

1. General Information

(1) This privacy statement explains what information is collected or stored when visiting our website, and how it is used. This statement also explains how you can check the accuracy of the personal information stored about you and how you can delete, block or update this personal information in our database.

(2) As a matter of principle, personal data of our users are only proceeded when necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. Further uses are listed in the following provisions. The regular processing of personal data of our users is only carried out with their explicit consent. An exception applies in cases in which either obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons or the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

(3) Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event of vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) (d) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

(4) Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the responsible party is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the afore mentioned standards expire unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Due to legal requirements, we may be obliged to store your data beyond the period of your use of our website – particularly for tax purposes. However, we will ever only store data to the extent necessary; taking into account the legal requirements.

(5) Sharing data

Should your data be passed on to other companies or subcontractors, this will only be done in compliance with the present data protection regulations and the statutory provisions as well as for the fulfilment of contractual obligations, e.g. the provider may possibly view corresponding statistical data.

We do not transfer your personal data to third parties outside the company without your expressed consent. External service providers who process data on our behalf are contractually obliged to do so. These service providers particularly are prohibited from using your data for purposes other than those for which it was originally provided.

We will only provide third parties with data that goes beyond the data you provided, in particular data that you have provided to us for internal purposes only in need of the pure processing of contracts, in the event of a corresponding legal obligation or in order to safeguard legitimate interests.

(6) Storage location

Your data is processed on servers located in Germany, hence only within the scope of the EU data protection level. However, we would like to point out possible exceptions according to No. 3 of these regulations.

Collecting personal data
a. Data generated on a website visit

(1) During a simple website visit, we only store access data within the framework of so-called server log files. This means data provided by your browser and that has no personal reference, namely:

– Browser type/version

– Operating system used

– Referrer URL (the previously visited page)

– Websites accessed by the user’s system via our website

– the user’s internet service provider

– Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)

– time and date of the server request.

We are not able to assign this data to specific individuals. We do not combine this data with other data sources, and the data is deleted after statistical evaluation. For this purpose, user access to our website is stored in the server log files, including the IP address. These log files are processed monthly for statistical purposes using analysis software, and will then be deleted. It is not possible to draw conclusions about a specific individual when we use the data.

(2) The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO. On one hand, the legitimate interests arise from the need to display and optimise the website’s content in a technically correct manner. Furthermore, the collection is necessary to ensure the functionality of the website in the event of attacks by third parties and to enable the prosecution of such attacks.

(3) The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in the data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

(4) The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. If any data was collected to guarantee the website’s provision, it will be deleted as soon as respective website session has ended.

(5) Collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of these data in log files is absolutely indispensable for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

B. Preventive health care services

(1) Our patients’ data (also including interested parties, other clients and contractual partners) are processed in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO for the provision of the contractual services. However, this data usually is not collected via our website. However, should you transmit corresponding data to us via our website, the following applies:

(2) Which data is collected and processed depends on type, extent and purpose of the necessity of its processing. Essentially, inventory and contact data of our patients (name, address, telephone, email address etc.), contract data (products used and their costs, names of contact persons) and payment data (order process, payment history, bank details, etc.) are collected and processed.

In the health sector special categories of data are also collected in accordance with Art. 9 (1) DSGVO. Particularly, this includes information concerning the patient’s health additionally also referring to their sexual orientation and sexual life. To process these extremely sensitive data, if necessary, the explicit consent of the patient is always obtained of course, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7, Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a DSGVO. Another purpose is the patient’s preventive health care on basis of Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h DSGVO in conjunction with § 22 para. 1 no. 1b BDSG.

(3) To the extent required by law or necessary for the performance of the contract, we also disclose and transfer patient data when communicating with healthcare professionals and those typically involved in the performance of the contract. These include, among others, hospitals, laboratories, billing offices and comparable service providers, factoring companies. The basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b and c DSGVO. Furthermore, it is in our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to offer patients efficient and cost-effective healthcare. Further bases for processing are, in addition to the vital interest of the patient (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO), also the explicit consent of the patient (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO).

(4) The data shall be deleted immediately when no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual and legal obligations or in dealing with warranty and other obligations. Within the framework of statutory retention periods, a necessity test is carried out every three years.

(5) With your consent, your data will be transferred to a hospital providing further treatment, if needed.

If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the Union or a Member State.

In case the processing restriction itself has been restricted in accordance with the conditions above, you will be informed by the responsible party before the restriction is lifted.

d. Right to erasure

Obligation to erase

You may request the responsible party to erase your personal data immediately; the responsible party is obliged to erase such data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

(1) Your personal data are no longer necessary for any purposes like those they were collected or otherwise processed for.

(2) You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a or Art. 9 (2) a DSGVO and there is no other legal ground for the processing.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have personal data concerning you transferred directly from one responsible party to another, if feasible technically. This should not affect any freedoms and rights of other persons.

The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the responsible party.

g. Right to object

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out according to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

(2) is authorised by legislation of the Union or the Member States to which the responsible party is subject and that legislation contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or

(3) is made with your explicit consent.

However, according to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

Regarding the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible party is obliged to take reasonable steps to safeguard rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the responsible party’s side, to be able to express your point of view and to contest the decision.
