Privacy policy

This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of our website as well as our customers and partners about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by us and by companies commissioned by us.

In addition, the separate “Patient and Data Protection Information ECG Data” applies to the processing of ECG data. You can access this under the heading “Data protection information for the device”.

We take the protection of your data very seriously. Therefore, we treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory provisions and this privacy policy. When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect and how we use it. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done. The central regulation is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This not only defines the requirements for data protection, but also terms such as “personal data” or “processing”. You can read exactly how the GDPR defines the terms.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e- mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. And finally, there are always new requirements. Therefore, we reserve the right to change the security and data protection measures at any time, especially if this becomes necessary due to technical developments. In these cases, we will also adapt this information on data protection accordingly, if necessary. Please therefore note the current version of this data protection information.

IV. SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection 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 or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

 

V. Your rights

1.Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an already given consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

2. Right to object to the collection of data in specific cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If the data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) e or f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21(1) of the GDPR).

If their personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, they have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning them for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to the examinee, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If they object, their personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).

3. Right of data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine- readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

4. Information, deletion and correction/supplementation

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction or deletion of this data. For this as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time.

5. Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

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

6. Objection to advertising e-mails

The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

7. Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

If you notice something with which you do not agree, we would be pleased if you give us the chance to find a solution. If this is not possible, you as the person concerned have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. The right of complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies. For our company, please refer to  the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information: mailbox@datenschutz.hamburg.de
