We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, which is why we always handle your personal data according to statutory data protection provisions. We have appointed an expert and reliable external data protection officer. The external data protection officer is provided by UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co. KG.
In the following, we will inform you on how your personal data are processed.
Collection and Processing of Personal Data
You can always use our online services without disclosing your identity. If we do request that you enter personal data (for example, name, address, or e-mail address) on our Internet presence, for example as part of a contact form or when logging in/registering, this is entirely voluntary. We will use this information for our own business purposes (e.g., to send out requested materials/information).
In the event that you have any questions, we offer you the option of contacting us via a form that is provided on our Internet presence. Here, certain data have been labeled “mandatory.” These data are necessary to allocate and answer the request. Any other data can be provided voluntarily. Data for the purpose of contacting us is processed in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a of the GDPR, based on your voluntary consent.
The personal data we collect when you use the contact form is erased once your request has been completed, as well as once the statutory retention requirements under commercial and tax law have expired.
Once consent has been given – for example for the purpose of sending a newsletter or other interesting information on our company – you can withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future without stating a reason. To do so, please use the above mentioned contact form or any other channel mentioned within the newsletter.
Every time you access our Internet presence, a log is created and processed for statistical purposes. In this process, the individual users remain anonymous:
Based on our legitimate purpose in accordance with Art. 8 (1) f of the GDPR, we process the aforementioned data for the following purposes:
We reserve the right to inspect this data at a later date if concrete evidence of illegal use becomes known to us. As soon as the data is no longer required to fulfill the purpose, it is erased immediately, but at the latest after six months.
Transfer of data
As a rule, there will be no transfer to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes without your explicit consent. We will only transfer your data to third parties if this is legally permitted (for example based on Art. 6 of the GDPR) and/or necessary. In some instances, we use service providers to process data orders as prescribed by law; our website, for example, is hosted by Host Europe GmbH and maintained by wendweb GmbH. We remain fully responsible for processing the data. In some instances, we furthermore use plug-ins by other providers on our Internet presence; for more details on this, please see below.
