Privacy Policy

Privacy and medical confidentiality are issues of particular concern in the health sector. Everyone wants their personal data – and especially their health data – to be treated confidentially. Data represents an important basis for the care and treatment of our patients for us, too. Modern data processing systems help us to manage patient data and especially medical records. Our most important asset, however, is the trust our patients have in us and our professional capacity. We justify this trust, among other things, by protecting patient data effectively and only using it in the way our patients expect us to.
We attach great importance to adhering to legal data protection regulations and, because of professional ethics in medicine, we go even further. To ensure confidentiality and privacy we continuously subject ourselves to review. We train and instruct our staff and those in positions of responsibility and motivate them to be diligent about privacy. We only allow authorised employees access to patient data. We never transfer patient data to external bodies unless within the legal framework of billing or reporting regulations or with the knowledge of the person concerned.
Along with the quality of our medical services, another important thing is secure: your data.
As a matter of principle, you can use the GERMEDIC International Department website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to use the specific services of our company over our website, we may need to process personal data. If we need to process personal data and no legal basis exists for doing so, we generally seek the consent of the data subject.
Processing a data subject’s personal data, such as their name, address, email address or telephone number, always take place in line with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to GERMEDIC International Department. Through this privacy policy, our company would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, this privacy policy informs Data Subjects about their rights.
As Data Controller, GERMEDIC International Department has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, data transfers over the Internet can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

The European legislator gives any Data Subject affected by personal data processing the right to obtain the deletion of personal data concerning them from the Data Controller without delay, where one of the following reasons applies and to the extent that processing is no longer required:• the personal data was collected or otherwise processed for purposes which the data is no longer needed.• the Data Subject revokes their consent on which processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR and no other legal basis for processing exists.• The data subject objects to data processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and no overriding legitimate grounds for processing exists, or the data subject objects to processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR.• The personal data have been processed unlawfully.• deletion of the personal data is required to comply with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the Data Controller is subject.• the personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 (1) GDPR.

Furthermore, when exercising their right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 (1) GDPR, you have the right to effect that the personal data is transferred directly from one Data Controller to another Data Controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and it this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

The European legislator grants any data subject affected by personal data processing the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to their particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning them that is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. If you object, the GERMEDIC International Department we will no longer process your personal data unless we can establish compelling legitimate grounds for its processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or its processing for purposes of asserting, exercising or defending against legal claims. If the GERMEDIC International Department processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject has the right to submit an objection at any time against their personal data being processed for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the GERMEDIC International Department processing their personal data for direct marketing purposes, GERMEDIC International Department will no longer process their personal data for these purposes. In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to their particular situation, to object to personal data concerning their person being processed by the GERMEDIC International Department for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for performing a task carried out in the pursuit of public interest.

h) Automated decision-making in individual cases including profiling
The European legislator grants any Data Subject affected by personal data processing the right to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing—including profiling—which produces legal effects concerning them or similarly significantly affects them, provided that the decision (1) is not required for entering into, or fulfilling a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the Controller is subject and that such law lays down appropriate measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is made with the data subject’s explicit consent. If the decision (1) is required for entering into or fulfilling a contract between the Data Subject and the Controller, or (2) it is made with the data subject’s explicit consent, the GERMEDIC International Department will implement suitable measures to safeguard the Data Subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the Controller side, to express their point of view and to contest the decision. If the data subject wishes to rights relating to automated decision making, they may, at any time, contact any of the Data Controller’s employees.
i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law

If the data subject wishes to assert their right to withdraw consent, they may, at any time, contact any of the Data Controller’s employees.
9. Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 (I) (a) GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If personal data needs to processed to fulfil a contract to which the Data Subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations required for delivering goods or providing any other service or consideration, processing takes placed based on Art. 6 (I) (b) GDPR. The same applies to processing operations required for fulfilling pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires personal data to be processed, such as for fulfilling tax obligations, processing takes place based on Art. 6 (I) (c) GDPR. In rare cases, processing 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 to be injured on our premises and as a result their name, age, health insurance details or other vital information needed to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Processing would then taken place based on Art. 6 (I) (d) GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could also take place based on Art. 6 (I) (f) GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is required to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the Data Subject do not prevail. We are permitted to perform such processing operations in particular because the European legislator has specifically mentioned them. In this respect, the legislator took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the Data Subject is a customer of the Controller (Recital 47 (2) GDPR).
10. Legitimate interests in the processing that is pursued by the Controller or a third party
If personal data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 (I) (f) GDPR, our legitimate interest lies in conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.
11. Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of personal data storage is the respective statutory retention period. The corresponding data is routinely deleted once the period has expired, if it is no longer required to fulfil or initiate a contract.
12. Legal or contractual provisions for providing the personal data; need for concluding the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide the personal data
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, a Data Subject may need to provide us with personal data that we subsequently need to process. For example, the Data Subject is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide this personal data would mean that the contract with the Data Subject could not be concluded. Before the Data Subject provides personal data, they must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs the Data Subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract, or whether it is necessary for concluding a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data and what consequences the failure to provide personal data would have.
13. Existence of automated decision-making. As a responsible company, we do not make use of automated decision-making or profiling.
