Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company and our products. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Medoderm GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “Medoderm”, “we” or “us”) attaches great importance to the security of user data and compliance with data protection regulations.
The technical terms used in this data protection declaration are to be understood as legally defined in Art. 4 DSGVO.
Principles for the Collection and Processing of Personal Data
A use of our internet pages is basically possible without any indication of personal data. If you wish to make use of special services of our company via our website, the processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will obtain the consent of the person concerned.
Automated data collection
You can visit our site without actively providing any personal information. However, we automatically save access data (server log files) such as the name of your Internet service provider, the operating system used, the website from which you are visiting us, the date and duration of your visit or the name of the file requested, as well as the IP address of the computer used for a period of 7 days for security reasons, e.g. to recognise attacks on our website. These data are evaluated exclusively for the improvement of our offer and do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This data will not be merged with other data sources. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. We process and use the data for the following purposes:
- Provision of the Medoderm website,
- Improvement of our websites and
- Prevention and detection of errors and malfunctions as well as misuse of websites
This type of data processing is carried out either to fulfil the agreement on the use of the Medoderm website or we pursue a legitimate interest in ensuring the functionality and error-free operation of the Medoderm website and adapting these websites to the requirements of users.
Allgemeiner Einsatz von Cookies und Opt-Out
Deactivating or Removing Cookies (Opt-Out)
Web browsers provide ways to restrict and delete cookies. You can find more information about this on the page of your browser provider.
Use of Google services
We use cookie-based Google programs to make visiting our website attractive and to simplify the use of certain functions for you. The use of these Google programs serves our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO to make your visit to our website clear, uncomplicated and as pleasant as possible for you. Google’s data protection information can be read here.
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as Google). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
Preventing Storage of Cookies
Objection to Data Collection
If you do not want Google to receive data from your browser when you visit the pages, you will find the link to the opt-out solution for Google Analytics here.
As an alternative to this browser plug-in or for browsers on mobile devices, you can use the following link to the opt-out solution:
Disable Google Analytics
We have used Google Analytics data retention controls to determine how long data is retained at the user and event levels before it is automatically deleted from Analytics servers. We have chosen a retention period of 26 months.
We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat.anonymizeIp” in order to guarantee an anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the USA.
Demographic Characteristics of Google Analytics
This website uses the function “demographic features” of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain information about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and visitor data from third parties. This information cannot be associated with any specific individual. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google Account or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your data as described under “Objection to data collection”.
Google Tag Manager
If you send us enquiries or information by e-mail, your details (e-mail address, content of your e-mail, subject of your e-mail and date/time) including the contact data provided by you there (name, surname, telephone number, address) will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for the collection and processing of data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.
The user is informed that e-mails can be read or changed unauthorisedly and unnoticed during transmission. Medoderm uses software to filter unwanted e-mails (spam filters). The spam filter can be used to reject e-mails that have been falsely identified as spam by certain features.
The data entered by you will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Internal data transmission
We transfer your data internally to the administration and human resources department in order to fulfil our contractual or legal obligations. A data transfer or disclosure of your data will only take place to the extent necessary in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations.
Existence of automated decision making including profiling
We do without automatic decision making or profiling.
As a matter of principle, we store your data for as long as is necessary for the provision of our services or insofar as this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Body or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject. In all other cases, we will delete your personal data after the purpose has been fulfilled, with the exception of data that we must continue to store in order to fulfil legal obligations (e.g. due to tax and commercial law retention periods, we are obliged to retain documents such as contracts and invoices for a certain period of time).
Medoderm uses technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your data administered by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. This site uses SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser for reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as your requests, which you send to us as the site operator. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Legal Basis of the Processing
Art. 6 para.1 lit. a) DSGVO serves us as a legal basis for processing operations for which we have obtained consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services.
If we are subject to a legal obligation which makes the processing of personal data necessary, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. lit. c DSGVO.
If the processing of personal data is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, the processing is based on Art. 6 (d) DSGVO.
Ultimately, processing operations may be based on Art. 6 para. lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of us or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate.
Revocation of your Consent to Data Processing
Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You have the possibility to revoke your consent at any time. To do this, simply send an informal e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you as soon as possible. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
On our website you will find links to the websites of other providers. We hereby point out that we have no influence on the content of the linked websites and the compliance with data protection regulations by their providers.
Changes to our Data Protection Declaration
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection information at any time in the event of changes on our website and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations so that it complies with the legal requirements.
