Note on data security
We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure on our website in combination with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. In general, this is a 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is being transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
Our services for registered users
If you would like to take the opportunity to order goods in our web shop or in our order portals for dental and hearing technology, you can register on our portal. For this purpose, we need personal data from you:
During the usage process, technically necessary information such as IP address, time of access, etc. is also collected, which allows us to technically implement our service according to current security standards.
Subsequently, after a comparison with the relevant sanctions lists (in accordance with GDPR art.6 para 1 subpara c in the case of a possible personal reference), you have the opportunity to make use of our services. The legal basis for the data collected in the course of registration and use of our portal is the requirement for the fulfilment of the contract in accordance with GDPR art.6 para 1 subpara b, if you are acting as an independent individual in your own name, alternatively our legitimate interest in being able to name an individually identifiable natural person at our contractual partner, GDPR art.6 para 1 subpara f.
As soon as you place an order within one of our portals or in the web shop, further details on your payment modalities may be required, which are necessary for the execution of the contract. Depending on the occasion, a credit assessment may also be required in individual cases, but not as a lump sum and not automatically. If such a credit check is carried out, it also affects natural persons acting independently if they decide to register on our portal. In such a case, the check carried out is required for the execution of the contract in accordance with GDPR art.6 para 1 subpara b. Although a scoring value is automatically calculated by the company commissioned for a credit assessment, no automated decision making is made on the basis of this value, but is based on an individual assessment of the individual case.
Your data will be stored for 6 or 10 years, respectively, within the framework of the legal obligations to provide evidence under commercial and tax law, starting from the year following the conclusion of the contract, GDPR art.6 para 1 subpara b.

It is also possible that no further data will be provided apart from the connection data (IP address, etc.) which is required for technical reasons. There is no direct assignment of the chat to the customer in our customer database. Information is solely fed manually into our customer database if this is appropriate in accordance with our legitimate interest, in order to offer our customers the best possible service, GDPR art.6 para 1 subpara f.
Data of third parties
If data of your customers or patients is obtained within the context of your order, we will act on your behalf and process the received data according to your instructions. In this case, it is for you as the contractor to comply with the legal obligations arising from data protection, which are not subject to us in the context of processing the order.
On our website there is a contact form which can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask is transmitted to us and will be stored. This data is in addition to the user’s formulated requests:

In all other respects, processing may take place within the scope of our legitimate interests, GDPR art.6 para 1 subpara f. Our legitimate interest here is to provide an uncomplicated opportunity for possible interested parties in our services or for other visitors to our website to contact us. Our legitimate interests may also lie, for example, in the internal forwarding of the enquiry to enable another employee to answer it or in similar organisational measures to ease the workload. This does not include unexpected or excessive processing that is disadvantageous to the sender.
The collection of data from the input mask is carried out exclusively for the purpose of processing your enquiry and providing information about our services. Your data will not be passed on or used for other purposes.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is finished when it can be concluded from the circumstances
that the matter in question has been finally clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of 30 days at the latest.
The user can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail to our data protection officer (address see above) stating the data required for the assignment of the contact is sufficient. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data stored in the course of the contact will be deleted in this case.
For our newsletter we collect your e-mail address, your preferred form of salutation, your first and last name and your special interests. The registration for our newsletter

This confirmation is necessary so that no one with a foreign e-mail address can register. Newsletter registrations are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also recorded.

The collected data will be stored until your consent is withdrawn. In order to be able to prove a previously given consent, we can store e-mail addresses that have been removed due to withdrawal for up to three years before we delete them. The processing of this data is then limited to the purpose of fulfilling our obligation to provide evidence and a possible defence against claims. An individual request to delete the data is possible at any time, provided, that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time.
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. you can withdraw your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
The newsletters may contain links which, when opened, transmit information to us via the clicked link and/or the newsletter itself. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information on the browser and your system as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval are initially collected.
This information is used for technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on the retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. The evaluations serve to identify the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
These evaluation activities are in our legitimate interests as operators of the newsletter, GDPR art. 6 para 1 subpara f.

We maintain online presences on the Facebook and LinkedIn platforms in order to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to be able to inform them about our services.
