VI. Processing of your contact requests
Our website contains information that facilitates the establishment of quick electronic contact with our company. This includes contacting us via email, as well as via our contact form.
Within our contact form, you have the option of being contacted by a point of contact within our company via email, or you may request a callback. You also have the possibility to make a non-binding “get to know us” appointment. Within the scope of the contact form, we record your first and last name as well as your contact data for the desired establishment of contact. Using a free text box, you can also send us the reason for your request or a personal message.
Should you contact us by email, the contact data you provide and your enquiry will be stored, in order to process your request.
In both cases, when establishing contact, your data will only be stored for the purpose of your enquiry. When your enquiry has been processed and completed, your data will be deleted once the processing is finished. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Your data will be stored exclusively for the period of time required to achieve the purpose of its storage, or as stipulated by European directives and regulations, or by German federal legislation.
With our Newsletter we like to update you at regular intervals about developments and interesting topics from healthcare and life science. To receive our free newsletter, it is necessary to enter your email address for the purpose of receiving the newsletter. The email address you provide will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter.
If you have entered your email address, you will receive an email from us to reconfirm your subscription to the newsletter (“double opt-in”). You can informally revoke your consent vis-a-vis our company at any time.
The provider of the newsletter service is rapidmail GmbH, Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg i.Br., Germany. The data entered by you for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter is stored on rapidmail servers exclusively in Germany; your data will not be shared in any way. Our newsletters sent with rapidmail enable us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Among other things, it is possible to analyse which contents of our newsletter appealed in particular to the recipients, which subscriptions and cancellations were made, where our newsletters are received geographically and on which end devices they are accessed.
The email address you provide for the newsletter to be sent will be stored until you withdraw your consent to receive our newsletter. Information on data protection at rapidmail can be found at https://www.rapidmail.de/newsletter-marketing-dsgvo-und-datenschutz-konform.
VIII. Handling of applications
If you have applied to us by post or in electronic form for a position advertised by us (or as part of a speculative application), we will process your applicant data solely for the purpose of completing the application procedure.
If no employment relationship is subsequently established, your application documents will be deleted three months after notification of the rejection decision, unless this is contrary to any legitimate interest of the data controller – for example, the burden of proof in proceedings under the General Act on Equal Treatment (AGG). Should we be interested in saving your application documents for a longer period of time, in order to consider your application at a later date, we will ask for your consent. If an employment contract is concluded following the application procedure, the data you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the relevant statutory provisions.
IX. Presence in social networks
We operate on
online presence within social networks.
X. Legal bases for the processing of your data
The protection of your data, as well as transparency in dealing with the processing of your data, play an important role for us as a company. We would, therefore, like to offer you a brief overview of the legal bases on which your data is processed:
- 6 (I) Letter a GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for those processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. This is the case, for example, if you agree to be contacted via our contact form or to receive our newsletter. If data processing is based on your consent, this can be terminated at any time by the revocation of your consent.
- If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party – such as for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration – this processing is based on Art. 6 (I) Letter b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations, which are necessary to execute pre-contractual measures, for example, in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If you have any questions regarding the processing of your data during (pre-)contractual business relations, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our relevant points of contact.
- If our company is subject to a legal obligation, which renders it necessary to process personal data – for example, to fulfil tax obligations – this processing is based on Art. 6 (I) Letter c GDPR. In rare instances, it may be necessary to process personal data, in order to protect the vital interests of you or other natural persons – this may, in particular, be necessary if you provide us with information that falls under aspects of medicinal product safety.
XI. Your rights
You have the right to the disclosure and/or confirmation of your stored personal data, its origin, its recipient(s) and the purpose of the data processing, at any time and free of charge, as well as the right to object to, to request the correction of, to limit the processing of or to demand the deletion of such data, and to lodge an appeal or complaint with the competent authority. Furthermore, the GDPR guarantees you a right to data transferability. Should you wish to assert your rights vis-a-vis our company, you may, of course, do so at any time using the contact details provided.
The competent supervisory authority for Lower Saxony is: State Commissioner for Data Protection.
XII. Important information on liability
This data protection policy has been prepared on the basis of currently available literature. It should be noted that many of the issues raised have not yet been conclusively clarified by way of supreme court rulings and that the data protection authorities of the federal states have not yet issued their opinions, which is why different interpretations still exist in relation to certain points.
Our offer contains links to external websites of third parties, over whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for this external content. The respective provider or operator of the sites in question is always responsible for the contents of the linked sites. The linked pages were checked for any possible legal infringements at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not identified at the time of linking. However, the permanent monitoring of the contents of said linked pages is unreasonable without a concrete indication of a legal violation. If we become aware of any infringement, we will remove such links without delay.
The contents and works contained on these pages created by the site operators are subject to German copyright law. The reproduction, editing, distribution and any form of use outside the limits of copyright law will require the written consent of the respective author or creator.
