II. Data protection officers

Dr. med. Claudius Lachmann

III. General information on data processing

The protection of your personal data during processing is very important to us throughout the entire business process and we want you to feel secure when you visit our website. Compliance with the German and European data protection regulations is our top priority.

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal information. If personal data (e.g. names, addresses, or email addresses) are collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis whenever possible. These data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent.

Any data backups are stored using the latest SSL encryption technology in a secure operating environment which is not accessible to the public. The data are treated with utmost confidentiality and only evaluated for purposes of optimising the website. All data, including email traffic, are deleted after a maximum of 90 days and are not disclosed to third parties.

We would like to point out that data transfer over the internet (e.g. email communication) is prone to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection against access by third parties is therefore not possible.

In principle, we collect and use our users’ personal data only to the extent needed to provide a fully functioning website as well as to offer our content and services. The collection and use of a user’s personal data usually takes place only with the user’s consent. An exception applies in cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and if processing of the data is permitted by law.

Insofar as we obtain consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This also applies to data processing operations that are required for pre-contractual actions. Insofar as processing of personal data is required by our company to fulfil a legal obligation, Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6(1)(d) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over our company’s interests, Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing.

The personal data of each data subject are deleted or blocked as soon as the original purpose of the storage ceases to apply. An obligation to retain the data may also exist under statutory law, European Union Directives, or other regulations that apply to the data controller. Blocking or deletion of the data then only takes place after the retention period specified by the applicable regulations expires, unless the storage of the data is still necessary for conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

IV. Provision of the website and creation of log files (server log files)

1. Description and scope of the data processing The website operator automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.
This information includes:
. browser type and version;
. your operating system;
. referrer URL;
. host name of the accessing computer;
. time of server request;
. IP address.

2. LEGAL BASIS FOR THE DATA PROCESSING Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the temporary storage of the data.

3. PURPOSE OF THE DATA PROCESSING The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is needed for the website to be loaded on the user’s computer. Here, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
For these purposes, our legitimate interest in the data processing is in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

4. DURATION OF THE STORAGE The data are deleted once the original purpose of the data collection ceases to apply. For data collected to ensure the website loads on the user’s computer, the data are deleted at the end of the respective session.

5. POSSIBILITY OF OBJECTION AND ERASURE Collection of data for provision of the website and the data storage in log files is essential for operation of the website. Thus, the user cannot object to such data collection and storage.

V. Use of cookies

a) Description and scope of the data processing Our website uses cookies, small text files that are stored by the browser on the user’s computer. A cookie can be stored on the user’s operating system when a user visits a website. This cookie contains a characteristic string that makes it possible to unambiguously recognise the browser when the user visits the website again. We also use so-called session cookies to make our website more user friendly. Some elements of our website require that a browser be identifiable even after navigating from one page to another. Cookies also make it possible to determine the usage frequency and number of users for a page, to analyse user behaviour on different pages, as well as to make our offering more customer friendly. Cookies remain on the user’s computer after the end of the session and can be recalled when the user visits the website again. If you do not want this to happen, you should configure your browser to block the use of cookies.
b) Legal basis for the data processing Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies.
c) Purpose of the data processing The reason for using technically necessary cookies is to make the website more user friendly. Some features of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. These require that the browser be recognisable when the user navigates from one page to another.
We require cookies for the following purposes:
The user data collected using such technically necessary cookies will not be used to create user profiles.
Our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data for these purposes is in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
d) Retention duration, possibility of objection and deletion Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted to our website. As a user, you therefore have full control over the use of cookies. By configuring your browser settings accordingly, you can disable or restrict data transfer through cookies. Any cookies already saved on your computer can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. We wish to point out that you may not be able to use all functions of this website if you disable the use of cookies for our website.

VI. E-mail contact

Contact can be established using the email address provided on our website. In this case, the personal data of the user sent with the email will be stored. No transfer of data to third parties takes place in this regard. The data are used exclusively for the processing of the conversation.

If the user has provided their consent, the legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of the data that are transmitted when sending an email is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. If the email contact serves to facilitate the conclusion of a contract, an additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR.

In the case of contact via email, the personal data are solely used to process the contact request. This also falls under the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and ensure the security of our information technology systems.

The data will be erased as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of their collection. For the personal data sent via email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The personal data collected additionally during the mailing process will be erased after a period of seven (7) days at the latest.

VII. Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps and offer driving directions. Google Maps is a map service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website, including your IP address and the “starting point” given in the context of the route planner function, will be transmitted to Google in the USA. If you visit a page on our website that contains Google Maps, your browser connects directly to Google servers. The map content is transmitted by Google to your browser and then embedded into the web page. We therefore have no control over the extent of the data collected by Google in this regard. We have no influence on the further processing or use of the data by Google and therefore cannot assume any responsibility for this. If you do not want Google to collect, process, or use information about you through our website, you can disable JavaScript in your browser settings. However, you will not be able to use the map viewer in this case. More information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and further processing, the use of the data by Google and your rights relating to this, and your privacy configuration options can be found in Google’s privacy policy. By using our website, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by the Google Maps route planner as described above and for the purpose described above.

VIII. Google +1 Privacy policy

Our website uses social media features provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When you visit a page on our website that contains Google plugins, a connection is established between your browser and Google servers. Here, certain information is transmitted to Google when establishing the connection. If you have a Google account, these data may be linked to your profile. If you do not want this information to be assigned to your Google account, please log out of Google before visiting our website. Interactions, especially the use of a comment function or clicking on “+1” or “Share” buttons are also transmitted to Google. More information can be found at: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

IX. Google Analytics Privacy policy

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google provides a browser plugin to disable Google Analytics, which is available from: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. Google Analytics uses cookies. These are small text files that make it possible to store specific user-related information on the user’s device. These cookies enable Google to analyse the usage of our website. The information (including your IP address) collected by cookies about the use of our websites is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the “gat._anonymize();” extension to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). When this anonymisation is active, users’ IP addresses are truncated by Google within a member states of the European Union or other signatory states of the Agreement in the European Economic Area beforehand, which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your identity. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and truncated there. Google complies with the privacy regulations of the “Privacy Shield” Agreement and is registered with the US Ministry of Commerce’s “Privacy Shield” programme. Google uses the collected information to analyse the usage of our website, compile reports on our behalf, and provide other related services to us. More information can be found at http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

X. Newsletter2Go

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website, we need your email address as well as information enabling us to verify that you are the owner of the email address and that you consent to receiving the newsletter.
We use the double opt-in method to confirm your consent to the newsletter. This shortlists the potential recipients on a distribution list and sends them a confirmation email from which they can legally confirm their subscription. Only after this confirmation will the user’s email address be added to the distribution list. We only use these data to send the requested information and offers. The newsletter software used on our website is Newsletter2Go. As a result, your data are transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is prohibited from selling or using your data for purposes other than sending of newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a certified German service provider selected based on the requirements of the GDPR and the Federal Data Protection Act.
More information can be found at https://www.newsletter2go.de/informationen-newsletter-empfaenger/. You can revoke your consent for the storage of your data, email address, and its use for sending of the newsletter at any time, e.g. by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.

XI. Rights of the data subject

If your personal data are collected and processed, you have the following rights against the data controller, in accordance with the GDPR:

1. Right to information You have the right to request confirmation from the data controller on whether we process personal data about you.
In cases where such processing does take place, you can request the data controller to provide you with the following information:
1 – the purposes of processing your personal data;
2 – the categories of personal data being processed;
3 – the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed;
4 – the planned storage duration of your personal data or, if such specific information is not available, criteria for the retention duration;
5 – the existence of a right to correction or deletion of your personal data, a right to restrict the processing by the data controller or a right to object to such processing;
6 – the existence of a right to complain to a data protection authority;
7 – any available information about the source of the data if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;
8 – the existence of automated decision-making processes, including profiling according to Art. 22(1) and (4) GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information on the logic involved, and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject. You have a right to request information about whether your personal data are transferred to a third country or an international organisation. You can also request appropriate assurances relating to such transfer of your personal data according to Art. 46 GDPR.

2. Right to correction You have a right against the data controller to correction and/or completion if your personal data being processed are incorrect or incomplete. The data controller must correct the data without delay.

3. Right to restriction of processing You can demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted under the following conditions:
1 – if you contest the accuracy of your personal data for a duration that allows the data controller to verify the accuracy of your personal data;
2 – if the processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion of your personal data but instead demand that the use of the personal data be restricted;
3 – if the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the data processing, but you need the personal data to assert, exercise, or defend legal claim; or
4 – if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR and it has not yet been established whether the data controller’s legitimate reasons outweigh your legitimate reasons. If processing of your personal data has been restricted, these personal data may only be used with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising, or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of a significant public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
The data controller will inform you before a restriction is lifted if the processing of your data was restricted in accordance with the above conditions.

4. Right to deletion
You can demand that the data controller delete your personal data without delay, and the data controller must delete such data immediately, if one of the following is true:
1 – Your personal data are no longer needed for the original purpose for which they were collected or processed;
2 – You revoke your consent to the processing based on Art. 6(1)(a) or Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing of the data;
3 – You object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21(1) GDPR and there are no overriding justifiable reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR;
4 – Your personal data have been processed unlawfully;
5 – The deletion of your personal data is required to meet a legal obligation under Union Law or the Law of the Member States the controller is subject to; or
6 – Your personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Art. 8(1) GDPR.
B) INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES If the data controller has disclosed your personal data and is obliged to delete your personal data pursuant to Art. 17(1) GDPR, the data controller shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, considering the technology available and the costs of implementation, to inform other data controllers who are processing these personal data of the fact that you, the data subject, have requested the deletion of all links to such personal data and of copies or replications of such personal data.
C) EXCEPTIONS The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary:
1 – to exercise the freedom of expression and information;
2 – to fulfil a legal obligation that requires the processing of the data under EU or a Member State’s Law to which the data controller is subject or for performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official duty conferred on the data controller;
3 – for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Art. 9(2)(h) and (i) and Art. 9(3) GDPR;
4 – for archival purposes in the public interest, scientific, or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89(1) GDPR, to the extent the right referred to in paragraph (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of that data processing; or
5 – to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information If you have informed the data controller that you are exercising your right to correction, deletion, or restriction of the data processing, the data controller must notify all recipients to whom he/she has disclosed your personal data of this correction, deletion or restriction of data processing, unless this proves impossible or involves an unreasonable expense or effort. You have the right to demand the data controller informs you of such recipients.

6. Right to data portability You are entitled to receive personal data that you provided to the controller in a structured, current, and machine-readable format. You are also entitled to demand that the data controller to whom you have provided the personal data transfers these personal data to another data controller without hindrance, provided that:
1 – the data processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR, Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR, or on a contract in compliance with Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR; and
2 – the processing is performed by means of automated procedures.
When exercising these rights, you are further entitled to request that one data controller transfers your personal data to another provided this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected. The right to data portability does not apply if the processing of personal data is necessary for performance of tasks in the public interest or in exercising official authorities delegated to the data controller.

7. Right to object
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data based on Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on the same provisions. The data controller will no longer process your personal data unless s/he can demonstrate protected reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights, and freedoms, or the processing is required for enforcing, exercising, or defending legal claims. You may object to the processing of your personal data at any time if this is being done for direct marketing purposes; this also applies to the profiling associated with such direct marketing. Your personal data will no longer be processed for direct marketing purposes if you object to the processing for such purposes. You can exercise your right to object in connection with the use of information society services, regardless of Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures that use technical specifications.

8. Right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. This revocation does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of such a consent before its revocation.

9. Individual automated decisions including profiling
You have the right not to be subjected to a decision that is based solely on automated processing, including profiling, if it materially affects you legally or in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision:
1 – is required for the conclusion of a contract between you and the data controller;
2 – is permitted by EU or a Member State’s legislation to which the data controller is subject, provided such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests; or
3 – is made with your express consent.
However, such decisions must not be based on the special personal data categories listed in Art. 9(1) GDPR, unless Art. 9(2)(a) or (g) GDPR applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect your rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests. In view of the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall take appropriate measures to uphold your rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests, including at least the right that a person from the side of the controller be involved in the decision making and that you are given an opportunity to express and present your position as well as challenge that decision.

10. Right to complain to a data protection authority Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a data protection authority, particularly in the Member State of your residence, place of work, or place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR. The data protection authority to which the complaint is submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility to seek a judicial remedy in accordance with Art. 78 GDPR.

Note: Data protection measures are always subject to technical updates. We therefore ask you to check our privacy policy regularly and stay up-to-date with our data protection measures.
