Privacy Policy

We appreciate your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance for the management of the Alfried Krupp Hospital. It is possible to use Alfried Krupp Hospital's internet pages without supplying any personal information. If a data subject wishes to make use of specific services of our company via our website, processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, the data subject generally must consent to us processing their data.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations that apply to the Alfried Krupp Hospital. In this privacy policy, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use and process. This privacy policy will also inform data subjects of their rights.

The Alfried Krupp Hospital has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures as the responsible party for processing personal data, in order to ensure that all personal data processed via this website is as protected to the fullest possible extent. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. Definitions

The Alfried Krupp Hospital privacy policy is based on the terms used by the European guideline and regulation provider when the general data protection regulation (GDPR) was issued. Our privacy policy is meant to be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

In this data protection declaration, we use, among others, the following terms:

a) Personal data

Personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the "data subject"). Identifiable refers to a person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular through the assignment of an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of said person.

b) Data subject

The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

c) Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

e) Profiling

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing

'Controller' or the controller responsible for the processing means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for their appointment may be laid down in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.

h) Processor

Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

i) Recipient

"Recipient" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to which personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may be entitled to receive personal data under Union law or the law of the Member States within the framework of a particular investigation mandate shall not be regarded as recipients.

 j) Third party

Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.

k) Consent

Consent by the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

4. Cookies

The websites of the Alfried Krupp Hospital use cookies. Cookies are text files that are filed and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows websites and servers that have been visited to distinguish the individual's browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognised and identified by the unique cookie ID.

The use of cookies enables Alfried Krupp Hospital to provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.

The information and offers on our website can be optimised for the user using a cookie. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter their access data each time they visit the website because the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system remembers the information.

The data subject can prevent cookies being set by our website at any time by using an appropriate setting of the browser being used, thus permanently objecting to to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies on the Internet browser used, not all functions of our Internet site may be fully usable.

5. Collection of general data and information

The Alfried Krupp Hospital website collects a series of general data and information every time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. We may record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-pages which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time the website was accessed, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our IT systems.

When using this general data and information, Alfried Krupp Hospital does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our IT systems and the technology on our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by Alfried Krupp Hospital statistically with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

 

6. Subscription to our newsletter

On the website of the Alfried Krupp Hospital, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. The personal data transmitted to the data controller when the newsletter is ordered results from the input form used for this purpose.

Using a newsletter, the Alfried Krupp Hospital informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals about the company's current information and offers. Our company newsletter can only be received by the data subject if (1) the person concerned has a valid email address and (2) the data subject registers to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by an affected person for the first time for newsletter mailing using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail serves to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorised the receipt of the newsletter as the person concerned.

When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject's e-mail address at a later point in time and therefore serves the legal protection of the responsible person.

The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be notified by email if this is necessary for operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter or technical changes. The personal data collected in the context of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties.

Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoked at any time. You will find a corresponding link in every newsletter for the purpose of revoking your consent. It is also possible at any time to unsubscribe directly from the newsletter on the website of the data controller or to inform the data controller in any other way.

7. Newsletter tracking

The newsletters of the Alfried Krupp Hospital contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to enable recording and analysis of your interaction with the newsletter. This allows statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Using the embedded tracking pixel, Alfried Krupp Hospital can detect whether and when an email was opened by the data subject and which links in the email were accessed by the data subject.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels in the newsletters is stored and evaluated by the data controller for the purpose of optimising dispatch of the newsletter and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of data subjects. The data will not be disclosed to third parties. The data subject is entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. Once consent is revoked, this personal data will be deleted by the data controller. Alfried Krupp Hospital automatically interprets unsubscribing from receiving the newsletter as a revocation.

8. It is possible to contact us via the website

Due to legal provisions, Alfried Krupp Hospital's website contains information that enables quickly contacting our company electronically, as well as directly communicating with us, which includes provision of a general so-called electronic mail address (email address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by email or via a contact form, any personal data transmitted by the data subject is stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. We will not disclose your information to third parties.

9. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

10. Rights of the data subject

a) Right of confirmation

Every data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to require the controller to confirm whether personal data concerning him/her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

b) Right of access

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to obtain, at any time and free of charge, information from the controller concerning the personal data relating to him/her stored and a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European regulator has granted the data subject the following information:

the purposes of processing

the categories of personal data concerned;

the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations;

where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;

the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning you or of a restriction of the processing by the person responsible or of a right to object to such processing;

the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their source

the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Article 22 Paragraph1 and 4, GDPR and - at least in these cases - meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

Furthermore, the data subject has a right of access to information as to whether personal data has been transferred to a third party or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject, in addition, has the right to obtain information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.

If a data subject wishes to avail themselves of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

c) Right to rectification

Any person subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to request the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning him/her. Furthermore, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

d) Right to deletion (Right to be forgotten)

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:

The personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

The data subject withdraws his/her consent to the processing pursuant to Art. 6 Paragraph 1 letter a GDPR or Art. 9 paragraph 2 letter a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing.

Pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing, or the data subject is entitled to submit an objection pursuant to Article 21 paragraph 2 GDPR objecting to the processing.

The personal data has been unlawfully processed.

The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the responsible person is subject.

The personal data concerning you has been collected in relation to services offered by the information society according to Art. 8 Para. 1 GDPR.

If one of the above-mentioned reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have his/her personal data that has been stored by Alfried Krupp Hospital deleted, he/she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The Alfried Krupp Hospital employee will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with without delay.

If the personal data has been made public by Alfried Krupp Hospital and our company is responsible pursuant to Art. 17 Para. 1 GDPR for the deletion of personal data, Alfried Krupp Hospital shall take appropriate measures, also of a technical nature, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data processors who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data from these other data processors, insofar as the processing is not necessary. The Alfried Krupp Hospital employee will arrange everything on an individual basis.

e) Right to restrict processing

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to ask that the controller restricts processing where one of the following applies:

The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.

The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.

The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required to by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 Paragraph 1 GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.

If any one of the above-mentioned conditions is fulfilled and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by Alfried Krupp Hospital, they can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The Alfried Krupp Hospital employee will then restrict the processing.

f) Right to data portability

Any data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to receive personal data relating to him/her provided by the data subject to a data controller in a structured, current and machine-readable format. They also have the right to transmit this data to another data controller without obstruction by the data controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent provided for in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or in a contract in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, except where such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

Furthermore, in exercising their right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 para. 1 GDPR, the data subject has the right to require that the personal data be transmitted directly from one data controller to another as far as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others.

The data subject can contact an Alfried Krupp Hospital employee at any time to assert the right to data portability.

g) Right to object

Any person subject to the processing of personal data shall at all times have the right granted by the European legislator for reasons arising from his or her particular situation to oppose the processing of personal data relating to him or her which, pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter e or f GDPR of this Directive may be refused at any time. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

Alfried Krupp Hospital will no longer process personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If Alfried Krupp Hospital processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to any profiling connected with such direct advertising. If the person concerned objects to Alfried Krupp Hospital processing for direct advertising purposes, Alfried Krupp Hospital will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from his/her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning him/her for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes at Alfried Krupp Hospital in accordance with Art. 89 Para. 1 GDPR, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a task in the public interest.

To exercise the right of objection, the person concerned may directly contact any Alfried Krupp Hospital employee or any other employee. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his/her right of opposition in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, Directive 2002/58/EC notwithstanding.

h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

Any data subject whose personal data is being processed shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect against him/her or significantly affects him/her in a similar manner, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is admissible under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject and that such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, Alfried Krupp Hospital shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data controller, to state his/her own position and to challenge the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he/she may, at any time, contact any employee of the data controller.

i) Right to withdraw data protection consent

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to revoke consent, he/she may contact any employee of the data controller at any time. 

11. Data protection for applications and in the application procedure

The data controller collects and processes applicants' personal data for the purpose of handling the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted shall be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted six months after notification of the decision of refusal, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include retaining evidence for use in proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a) GDPR is the legal basis for this processing of personal data, provided the data controller has the consent for processing the relevant personal data for one or more specific purposes. The data will be forwarded to the operator of the online application portal. The data subject's rights can be found in this privacy statement under point 10.

12. Privacy policy on application and usage of Facebook

The data controller has integrated components from Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests, among other things.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The entity responsible for the processing of personal data, if the entity in question resides outside the US or Canada, is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

On each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and which has integrated a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in), the relevant Facebook component causes the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject to automatically download from Facebook a representation of the corresponding Facebook component. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. As part of this technical process, Facebook receives information about the specific sub-page of our website visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Facebook, Facebook recognises which specific sub-page of our website they visited for each visit to our website and during the entire duration of the respective visit to our website. This information is collected through the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the appropriate Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or they make a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.

Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website whenever they are logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, he/she can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of his/her Facebook account before accessing our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, available at de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

13. Data protection regulations on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The responsible person has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is surveying, collecting and analysing data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a data subject has accessed a website ("referrer"), which sub-pages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. Using this addition, Google shortens and anonymises the IP address of the data subject when accessing our Internet pages from a Member State of the European Union or from another signatory state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports showing us the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person in question. Cookies have already been explained above. The placement of this cookie enables Google to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.

Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the time of access, the location from which access came and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The data subject can prevent cookies being set by our website at any time, as already described above, by using an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and therefore permanently object to cookies being set. Setting the Internet browser used in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, it is possible for the data subject to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on from the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered a contradiction by Google. If the data subject's information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person within his/her control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be accessed at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at this link www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

 

14. Data protection regulations on the use and application of Twitter

The data controller has integrated components from Twitter into this website. Twitter is a multilingual public microblogging service on which users can publish and distribute so-called tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 280 characters. These short messages are available to everyone, including people who are not registered on Twitter. The tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user's tweets. Furthermore, Twitter makes it possible to address a broad audience via hashtags, links or retweets.

Twitter is operated by Twitter, Inc, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

With each access of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller for processing and which has integrated a Twitter component (Twitter button), the Internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Twitter component to download from Twitter a representation of the corresponding Twitter component. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be accessed at about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. As part of this technical process, Twitter receives information about the specific sub-page of our website visited by the data subject. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to disseminate the content of this website, to make this website known in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Twitter, Twitter recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific underside of our website visits the data subject. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned to the respective Twitter account of the person concerned by Twitter. If the person concerned presses one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information thus transmitted will be assigned to the personal Twitter user account of the person concerned and stored and processed by Twitter.

Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged on to Twitter at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Twitter component or not. If such a transfer of this information to Twitter is not wanted by the data subject, he/she can prevent the transfer by logging out of his/her Twitter account before accessing our website.

Twitter's applicable privacy policy is available at twitter.com/privacy .

15. Legal basis of the processing

Art 6 I lit. a, GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations through which we obtain 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 necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I letter b GDPR. The same applies to such processing processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I letter c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured at our company and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I letter d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I letter f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not take priority. We are allowed to carry out such processing procedures because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47, sentence 2, GDPR).

16. The legitimate interests pursued by the data controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business for the well-being of all our employees, patients and the shareholders.

17. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the statutory retention period in question. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if it is no longer required for fulfilling the contract or for initiating a contract.

18. Provision of personal data as a statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded if a data subject provides us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.

19. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
