Data protection declaration of medwork GmbH

We welcome you to our website and appreciate your interest in our company. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We process your data in accordance with the applicable legal provisions for the protection of personal data, in particular the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU DS-GMO) and the country-specific implementation laws applicable to us. With the help of this data protection declaration we inform you comprehensively about the processing of your personal data by medwork GmbH and the rights to which you are entitled.

Personal data is the information that makes it possible to identify a natural person. This includes in particular your name, date of birth, address, telephone number, e-mail address but also your IP address.

Anonymous data exists if no personal reference to the user can be established.

First of all, we would like to inform you here about your rights as a person concerned. These rights are standardised in Articles 15 – 22 of the EU DS-GMO. This includes:
  • The right to information (Art. 15 EU DS-GMO),
  • The right to cancellation (Art. 17 EU DS-GMO),
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 EU DS-GMO),
  • The right to data transfer (Art. 20 EU DSGVO),
  • The right to restrict data processing (Art. 18 EU DS-GMO),
  • The right to object to data processing (Art. 21 EU DS-GMO).
To exercise these rights, please contact: datenschutz@medwork.com. The same applies if you have questions about data processing in our company. They also have a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority.

Please note the following in connection with rights of objection:

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without giving reasons. This also applies to profiling in so far as it is connected with direct advertising.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made form-free, if possible to: datenschutz@medwork.com.

In the event that we process your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you can object to such processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

When processing your personal data, the provisions of the EU DS-GMO, the BDSG (new) and all other applicable data protection regulations are observed. Legal bases for data processing result in particular from Art. 6 EU DS-GMO.

We use your data for business initiation, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to execute the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to strengthen the customer relationship, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising.

Your consent is also a data protection permission regulation. Here we inform you about the purposes of data processing and about your right of revocation. If the consent also refers to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will expressly point this out to you in the consent (Art. 6 I 1 a EU DS-GMO).

Processing of special categories of personal data in the sense of Art. 9 (1) EU DS-GMO only takes place if this is required by legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interest in the exclusion of processing prevails (Art. 6 I 1 f EU DS-GMO).

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of legal regulations or with appropriate consent. Otherwise, data will not be passed on to third parties unless we are obliged to do so by mandatory legal provisions (transfer to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities).

Within our company, we ensure that only those persons receive your data who need it to fulfil their contractual and legal obligations.

In many cases, service providers support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary data protection agreements have been concluded with all service providers.

Data will only be transmitted to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) if this is necessary for the performance of the contractual obligation, is required by law or you have given us your consent.

We transfer your personal data to a service provider or to group companies outside the European Economic Area: USA.
Compliance with the data protection level is ensured by: EU standard contractual clauses.

We store your data as long as it is needed for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continue to be (must be) stored. This applies in particular to commercial or tax storage obligations (e.g. German Commercial Code, Fiscal Code, etc.). If there are no further storage obligations, the data will be routinely deleted once the purpose has been achieved.

In addition, we may retain data if you have given us permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within statutory limitation periods of up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.

In order to protect the data stored by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures. The security levels are continuously checked in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

The data exchange from and to our website is always encrypted. We offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol for our website, in each case using the current encryption protocols. In addition, we offer our users content encryption for contact forms. Only we can decrypt this data. It is also possible to use alternative communication channels (e.g. by post).

Various personal data are necessary for the establishment, execution and termination of the obligation and the fulfilment of the associated contractual and legal obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions it provides.

We have summarised the details for you in the above point. In certain cases, data must also be collected or made available on the basis of legal regulations. Please note that it is not possible to process your request or to perform the underlying obligation without providing this data.

The context determines which data we process: This depends on whether you place an order online or enter an enquiry in our contact form, whether you send us an application or submit a complaint.

Please note that we may also make information available separately at a suitable location for special processing situations, e.g. when uploading application documents or making a contact request.

  • Information about the website from which you are visiting us
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • The IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider
  • Requested files, transferred data volume, downloads/file export
  • Information about the websites you visit, including date and time
  • For reasons of technical security (in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server) these data are stored in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter F EU-DS-GMO. After 7 days at the latest, anonymization takes place by shortening the IP address, so that no reference to the user is established.

  • All data that you provide to us by e-mail. We do not request the transmission of certain data.

We do not use purely automated processing processes to bring about a decision.

Our website also contains – clearly recognisable – links to the websites of other companies. As far as there are links to websites of other providers, we have no influence on their contents. Therefore, no guarantee and liability can be assumed for these contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of these pages.

At the time of linking, the linked pages were checked for possible legal infringements and recognisable infringements. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages is unreasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. Upon notification of violations of the law, such links will be removed immediately.

Our Internet pages use so-called cookies in several places. They serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser (locally on your hard drive).

These cookies enable us to analyse how users use our websites. In this way we can design the website content according to the visitor’s needs. In addition, cookies enable us to measure the effectiveness of a particular ad and to have it placed depending, for example, on the user’s thematic interests.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted after your visit. Permanent cookies are automatically deleted from your computer if they are valid (usually six months) or if you delete them yourself before they expire.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can usually change the settings of your browser if you prefer not to send the information. You can still use the offers on our website without restrictions (exception: configurators).

Please note: If you deactivate the setting of cookies, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through a single interface. The tool tag manager itself (that implements the tags) is a cookieless domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. “(“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

For more information, please visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information on Google Analytics and data protection). We would like to point out that the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” has been added to Google Analytics on this website to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

Apart from Insights, we do not currently collect any personal data on Facebook.

If Doubleclick Ad Exchange, a web ad service of Google Inc, USA (“Google”), places advertisements (text ads, banners etc.) on this website, your browser may store a cookie sent by Google Inc. or third parties. The information stored in the cookie can be recorded, collected and evaluated by Google Inc. or third parties. Doubleclick Ad Exchange also uses “WebBacons” (small invisible graphics) to collect information, which can be used to record, collect and evaluate simple actions such as visitor traffic on the website. The information generated by the cookie and/or web bacon about your use of this website is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google uses the information obtained in this way to evaluate your usage behavior with regard to Doubleclick Ad Exchange ads. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. If IP addresses are transmitted and stored in this context, this is only to combat and filter spam/fraud (ad impression spam and click spam). This data is strictly accessible only to the anti-abuse teams. Google does not associate the IP address with other data stored by Google. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive and Web Bacons from being displayed. To do this, you must select “do not accept cookies” in your browser settings (in Internet Explorer under “Tools / Internet Options / Privacy / Settings”, in Firefox under “Tools / Settings / Privacy / Cookies”).

There is a contact form on our website which can be used for electronic contact. If you write to us using the contact form, we will process the information you provide in the contact form to contact you and answer your questions and requests.

Here, the principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed, in that you only have to provide the data that we absolutely need to contact you. This is your email address and the message field itself. In addition, your IP address is processed for technical reasons and for legal protection. All other data are voluntary fields and can be entered optionally (e.g. for more individual answers to your questions).

If you contact us by e-mail, we will process the personal data provided in the e-mail solely for the purpose of processing your inquiry. If you only provide us with the mandatory information, you will not suffer any disadvantages. If you do not provide the mandatory information, we will unfortunately not be able to answer your message.

You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. The e-mail address and your name provided with the newsletter registration will be used for sending the personalised newsletter.

The principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed here, as only the e-mail address (if applicable name for personalised newsletters) is marked as a mandatory field. For technical reasons and for legal protection, your IP address is also processed when ordering the newsletter.

Of course, you can cancel your subscription at any time via the unsubscription option provided in the newsletter and thus revoke your consent. Furthermore, it is also possible to unsubscribe directly from the newsletter mailing at any time via our website.
