Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”).

We collect and process personal data, such as your name, email address, company or telephone number, if you provide us with this data when registering for our Investor Alert newsletter and for sending press releases, or if you provide us with this data in any other way. We do not process any personal data when using the website for purely informational purposes, except for data that is technically collected automatically when you visit the website (see log data).

When conducting clinical studies, we process anonymized patient data.

We process the above-mentioned personal data for the following purposes:

  • Conducting clinical trials (monitoring, publication);
  • Distributing Investor Alert newsletters or press releases regarding current information about our company;
  • Communicating about services, projects or other company-related topics, e.g., to process your inquiries;
  • Planning, executing and managing the (contractual) business relationship, e.g., to process orders for products and services, to collect payments, for accounting, billing and debt collection purposes and to perform deliveries, maintenance activities or repairs;
  • Maintain and protect the security of our products and services and our websites by preventing and detecting security risks, fraudulent activity, or other criminal activity or activity undertaken with the intent to cause harm;
  • Compliance with legal requirements (e.g., tax and commercial retention obligations) or existing obligations to conduct compliance screenings (to prevent white-collar crime or money laundering);
  • Compliance with national laws, for example defense, exercise or assertion of legal claims.

The processing of personal data is necessary to achieve the above purposes. The legal basis for the data processing is – unless expressly stated otherwise – Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR or your expressly given consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR.

Insofar as the above data is to be further processed for a purpose other than the original purpose of collection, you will be informed of this prior to further processing. In this way, you have the opportunity to object to the processing of your data for another purpose.

As a matter of principle, your data will not be made available to third parties for use unless you have given your consent to this or we are legally entitled and/or obliged to pass on this data.

Data subject rights: Right to information, correction, deletion or restriction of the processing of your personal data, right to object and right to data portability.

Upon request, we will inform you in writing, in accordance with the applicable law, whether and which personal data we store in our company. If, despite our company’s efforts to ensure data security and accuracy, incorrect information has been stored, we will correct it at your request.

You also have the right to request the restriction of the processing of personal data by our company. In addition, you may request to receive the data you have provided to our company in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You may also object to the data processing of personal data by our company.

You also have the right to request the deletion of your personal data, provided that this does not conflict with statutory retention periods. We delete the data if we no longer need it for the purpose for which we collected and processed it, or if you revoke the consent you have given and there is no other legal basis for the further processing of your data. In addition, we delete this data if the processing has been unlawful for reasons unknown to us or if you have objected to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate interests for the processing. Your data will also be deleted if we are legally obliged to do so. Our company has also implemented technical measures to notify all recipients of your data of your request for deletion or rectification. This applies only in the event that we have disclosed or made public such data. Deleted shall be all links, copies and replications of your personal data.

If you have consented to the processing of your personal data, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of consent does not render the data processing unlawful for the past.

The transfer of data to our company is voluntary. However, this data is necessary for the further conclusion of the contract or to answer your inquiries. If you do not wish to disclose your data, the contract may not be concluded or your inquiries may not be answered. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract.

You also have the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority about data processing by our company.

The data protection authority responsible for our company is:

State Office for Data Protection Supervision, Promenade 27 (Schloss), 91522 Ansbach, Germany Web: http://www.lda.bayern.de

Storage period

If no explicit storage period is specified at the time of collection (e.g., as part of a declaration of consent), the personal data will be deleted insofar as it is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was stored, unless legal retention obligations (e.g., commercial and tax retention obligations) prevent deletion.

The security measures of our company are continuously improved according to the technological development.
