The personal data processed by this website include
- Basic data (e.g. customer names and addresses),
- Contractual data (e.g. services used, payment information),
- User data (e.g. pages visited on our website) and
- Content data (e.g. entries in online forms).

- To render our contractual services
- Processing is a legal requirement
- You have given consent electronically (e.g. by subscribing to the newsletter)
- To exercise our legitimate interest

We will be happy to show you where the above legal principles are set out.

Art. 6 para. 1 c) GDPR

Consent:
Art. 6 para. 1 a) and art. 7 GDPR

Processing to exercise our legitimate interest:

Data transfer to third parties

We are obliged to make it known that data transfer to third parties does take place.

Transfer of your data to third parties only takes place within the framework of the legal regulations in force. We only transfer your data if this is necessary for contractual purposes or on the basis of legitimate interests in the economic and effective continuation of our business operations.

If we use subcontractors to provide our services, we take suitable legal precautions and implement technical and organizational measures to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the legal regulations.

Data transfer to third countries or international organizations

Third countries are those where the GDPR is not directly applicable. This fundamentally covers all countries outside the EU and European Economic Area.

No data transfer takes place to third countries or international organizations without a legal reason being given.

Duration of storage of your personal data

We stand by the principles of data avoidance and data minimization. This means we only store your data for the length of time necessary to achieve the purposes described here or in accordance with the retention limits set out by the legislature. If the purpose is no longer valid, your data will be restricted or deleted in accordance with the legal provisions.

To this end, we have created an internal concept to make sure this happens.

Means of contact

If you get in touch with us via the website, you consent to electronic communication.  During electronic contact with us, your personal data will be processed. The information you give will only be used in order to process your request and stored only for potential subsequent queries.

We are happy to inform you of the legal basis for this:
- processing in order to render our services and implement contractual measures as per art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR

We draw attention to the fact that emails in transit can be read or altered by unauthorized persons. We would also like to draw your attention to the fact that we use software to filter out undesired emails (spam filter). The spam filter may mean emails are rejected if incorrectly identified as spam.

What are your rights?

a) Right of access
You have the right to information about the data stored relating to you. On request, we will tell you in writing which of your personal data we have stored. This will also include the origin and recipients of your data and the purpose of the data processing.

b) Right to rectification
You have the right to correct any incorrect data we hold about you. Here, you can also demand restriction of processing, say, if you challenge the correctness of your personal data.

c) Right to restriction of processing
You can also have your data restricted. So the data restriction is respected, the data must be held in a locked file for control purposes.

d) Right to erasure
You can request the erasure of your personal data if there is no legal reason for it to be retained. If such an obligation exists, we will restrict your data on request. If suitable legal conditions are in place, we will delete your data without your requesting it.

e) Right to data portability
You are entitled to request us to send you the personal data you have provided to us in a format that allows its transfer to a different location.

f) Right to complain to a regulatory authority

You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your data as per art. 6 para. 1 (e, f) GDPR for reasons relating to your personal situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

FormMed HealthCare AG will then not process your personal data any further, unless it can demonstrate compelling legally protected reasons for this processing that override your own, or if processing serves the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If your personal data are processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for such purposes; this also goes for profiling, inasmuch as it is connected to direct marketing. In the case of such an objection, we will no longer use your personal data for the purpose of direct advertising. Here, it is enough to send us an email in this regard.

h) Right to revocation
You have right at any time to withdraw consent you have given to the processing of your data with future effect and without giving reasons. By revocation, you incur no disadvantage. Here, it is enough to send us an email in this regard.

Such revocation does not affect the legality of any processing that took place on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR before it was issued.

To exercise your rights as a data subject, send an email to the following address: datenschutz@formmed.de

Protection of your personal data

We take the most up-to-date contractual, technical and organizational safety measures to ensure that data protection laws are complied with and thus to protect data against accidental or intentional tampering, loss, destruction or unauthorized access.

The security measures we use are constantly being improved to match technological developments. Despite these precautionary measures, because of the insecure nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee the security of the data you transfer to our website. Because of this, any data transfer to our website by you takes place at your own risk.

Data transfer to countries outside the European Union does not take place. You can find more information in the data protection declaration at http://www.doccheck.ag/en/privacy/

Log data

This data is not used to draw conclusions about the user’s personal identification, but serves to ensure the correct display of the page or iFrame contents and/or the security of DocCheck services.

Newsletter

If you subscribe to our email newsletter, we will regularly send you information about our range. To do so, personal data must be gathered. The only obligatory information required to send you the newsletter is your email address. Further data is provided on a voluntary basis and is used to make personal address to you. These data are used by us for our own advertising purposes in the form of an email newsletter, as long as you have expressly consented to this.

To send the newsletter, we use the so-called “double opt-in” process. This means that we only send you an email newsletter if you have expressly confirmed that you consent to it. We will then send you a confirmation email asking you to click on a link and confirm that you want to receive the newsletter in the future.

On activation of the confirmation link, you give us your consent to the use of your personal data as per art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. On your subscription to the newsletter, we will save the IP address entered by your internet service provider (ISP) and the date and time of registration, in order to track any potential misuse of your email address at a later date.

You can unsubscribe to the newsletter at any time using the link in the newsletter or by sending a suitable email to us at info@formmed.de. You also have the option of unsubscribing in your customer account or using the form at https://www.formmed-shop.de/newsletter. Once you have successfully unsubscribed, your email address will be deleted promptly from our newsletter distribution list and placed in a blacklist to ensure revocation is effective.

Newsletter distribution via CleverReach

Distribution of our newsletter is carried out by the technical service provider CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstraße 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany (“CleverReach”), to which we transfer the data you sent when subscribing to the newsletter. This data transfer takes place as per Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in the use of a newsletter system that is effective for advertising, secure and user-friendly. The data you enter (e.g. email address) will be stored on the CleverReach servers in Germany or Ireland.

CleverReach uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. For evaluation, the email sent contains so-called “web beacons” or “tracking pixels”, consisting of a one-pixel image that is stored on our website. This lets us determine whether a newsletter has been opened and which links have been clicked.

With the aid of so-called “conversion tracking”, we can also analyze whether a previously defined action takes place after the link is clicked. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, operating system). The data are only ever anonymously collected and are not linked to your other personal data. Direct links to your person are impossible. These data are solely used for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of such analysis can be used to better adapt future newsletters to your interests.

If you wish to object to such data analysis for statistical purposes, you must unsubscribe to newsletter.

We have concluded a processing contract with CleverReach in which we oblige CleverReach to secure our customers’ data and not transfer them to third parties.

You can find further information on the data analysis by CleverReach at: https://www.cleverreach.com/en/features/reporting-tracking/.

General Right to Object
Where we process your personal data based on our overriding legitimate interests, you have the right to object to us, on grounds related to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you at any time. If you exercise this right to object, we will no longer process your data. Nonetheless, further processing remains reserved if we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establish-ment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

Changes to our data protection declaration

We retain the right to adjust our data protection information at short notice, in order to ensure it always reflects the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services. This could reflect e.g. the introduction of new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply to your next visit.
