Data protection provisions

INTRODUCTION AND CONCEPTS

1. Introduction: With the operation of our website www.healthcare-germela-wuelfing.com (hereinafter referred to as "website") we process personal data. We treat this data confidentially and process it in accordance with the applicable laws - in particular the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu). With our data protection regulations we want to inform you which personal data we collect from you, for which purposes and on which legal basis we use them and, if applicable, to whom we disclose them. In addition, we will explain to you which rights you have to safeguard and enforce your data protection.

2. Terms: Our data protection provisions contain technical terms which are new to the DSGVO and the BDSG.

2.1 Personal data: "Personal data" is all information relating to an identified or identifiable person (Art. 4 No. 1 DSGVO). Information of an identified person can be e.g. the name or the e-mail address. However, personal data also includes data in which the identity is not immediately apparent but can be determined by combining one's own or third-party information and thus finding out who it is. A person can be identified e.g. by providing his address or bank details, his date of birth or user name, his IP addresses and/or location data. Relevant here is all information that in any way allows conclusions to be drawn about a person.

2.2 Processing Art: 4 No. 2 DSGVO defines "processing" as any process in connection with personal data. This applies in particular to the collection, recording, organisation, arrangement, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure, transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, limitation, deletion or destruction of personal data.

If we use the help of external service providers to process your personal data, this is done within the framework of a so-called order processing in which we as the customer are authorised to give instructions to our contractors. For the operation of our website, we use external service providers for hosting as well as for maintenance, care and further development. Should further external service providers be used for any of the processing operations listed in Sections 6-13, they will be named there. Data transfer to third countries does not take place and is not planned. We will inform you about exceptions to this principle in the processing operations described below.

THE PROCESSINGS IN INDIVIDUAL

7. Contact by e-mail

7.1 Description of processing You can contact us at the e-mail addresses given on the website. In this case, the personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be processed by us.

7.2 PurposeThe data transmitted with and in your e-mail will be used exclusively for the purpose of processing and answering your request.

7.3 Legal basisThe processing is necessary to safeguard the predominant legitimate interests of the responsible person (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

If the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude or fulfil a contract, data processing is carried out to fulfil the contract (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).

7.4 Storage periodThe data is deleted by us as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose of collection. This is usually the case when the respective communication with you has ended. Communication is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that your request has been conclusively clarified. If statutory retention periods prevent deletion, deletion will take place immediately after expiry of the statutory retention period.

8. Newsletter

8.1 Description of processingWe send a newsletter at irregular intervals. With the newsletter we inform you about our activities. You will only receive our newsletter if you actively subscribe to our mailing list. You can subscribe to it by filling in and sending a newsletter registration form on our website or in the lists for lectures. To subscribe to the newsletter, all you need to do is enter your e-mail address. All other details (e.g. your first name and surname) are voluntary and are used solely for personalising the e-mails. For the implementation and verification of newsletter subscriptions, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. A registration takes place in several steps. First, you register on our website for the newsletter. You will then receive an e-mail from us at the e-mail address you provided. With this e-mail we will ask you to confirm that you have actually subscribed to the newsletter and wish to receive it. You can confirm by clicking on a confirmation link in the e-mail. Only after successful confirmation will we include you in our newsletter distribution list and send you e-mails in the future. As part of the double opt-in procedure, we store the date, time and your IP addresses both during registration and confirmation. If you are our client and enter your e-mail address here, this can subsequently be used by us to send a so-called existing customer newsletter. In such a case, only direct advertising for our own similar goods or services will be sent via the newsletter.

8.2 PurposeThe processing takes place in order to offer the newsletter function and to be able to send newsletter e-mails to subscribers and existing customers. The collection and storage of date, time and IP addresses during newsletter registration serves to document the consent given and to protect against the misuse of e-mail addresses.

8.3 Legal basisThe processing of our subscriber newsletter is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Your consent is voluntary. The collection and storage of date, time and IP addresses when subscribing to the newsletter is necessary to safeguard the overriding legitimate interests of the person responsible (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose stated in Section 8.2. The processing of our existing customer newsletter takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to safeguard the overriding interests of the responsible person. Our legitimate interest lies in direct advertising to existing customers. This is permissible within the framework of § 7 para. 3 UWG (German Unfair Competition Act), which we observe.

8.4 Storage period and revocation of consent If you do not confirm your subscription to our newsletter within 24 hours of receiving the corresponding registration e-mail, your data will be deleted automatically. We process your personal data for the duration of your newsletter subscription. You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time by withdrawing your consent. A simple declaration (by e-mail to contact@germela-wuelfing.com, by post to Germela Wülfing LLP, Hohe Bleichen 21, 20354 Hamburg or by fax to +49 40 2848404-99) is sufficient. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter by clicking the unsubscribe link in any newsletter e-mail. If you withdraw your consent, you will no longer receive any newsletters and your personal data will be removed from our active mailing list. In order to enforce your revocation, we will include your e-mail address in our so-called black list to a limited extent. This enables us to ensure that you will not receive any newsletters from us in the future and that your e-mail address will not be misused by third parties.

8.5 Recipients and transmission in third countriesWe use the services of the newsletter provider Netinventor to administer our newsletter distribution list and to send e-mails. This takes place within the framework of order processing. Netinventor is an offer of Net Inventors GmbH Stahltwiete 23, 22761 Hamburg.

13 Content Delivery Networks (CDN)

13.1 Description of processing Our website uses so-called Content Delivery Networks (CDN). CDNs shorten the loading time of common JavaScript libraries by transferring files from fast, near-location or underutilised servers of external service providers. A further advantage compared to local storage of the JavaScrip libraries on our server is that the files are regularly checked for security by the external service providers and kept up-to-date. We have integrated the JavaScript library jQuery from the external service providers for the implementation of some programming functions. When you visit our website, a connection is established to the servers of the external services mentioned and the jQuery library is loaded into our website. This will tell the external service provider which website you have visited. Your IP address may also be transmitted. In order to prevent the execution of Java Script as a whole, you can install a Java Script Blocker in your browser.

13.2 PurposeThe processing takes place in order to shorten the loading time of our website and to be able to integrate JavaScript library quickly and securely.

13.3 Legal basisThe processing is necessary to safeguard the predominant legitimate interests of the responsible person (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose stated in Section 13.2.

14.7 Complaint (Art. 77 DSGVO)If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates the DSGVO, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority. You may exercise this right with a supervisory authority in the EU Member State of your place of residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement.

Nor do we have to stop processing if it serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. In any case - even regardless of a particular situation - you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
