Processing of your personal data

We process your personal data for the following purposes and on the basis of the following legal bases:

When visiting our website

As with most websites, we collect data of your visit to our site. We do this in order to be able to present the website optimized to the device you are using and with all its functions or to store your preferences for your current or future browsing sessions. The following internet protocol data is routinely collected during visits to our websites: your IP address, the website that directed you to our site, the pages visited on our website, your web browser type, and the date and length of your visit. We process this data based on statutory provisions which allow the processing (1) because it is required to fulfil the agreement to provide the website to you (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. b GDPR) and (2) we have a legitimate interest in ensuring the functionality and fault-free operation of our website and in being able to offer a service tailored to the user which is not overridden by your interests, rights and freedoms (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR).  We hold this information for a maximum of 1 month for the purpose of recognizing and pursuing misuse. Aside from this, we delete or anonymize these usage data, including the IP addresses, without undue delay as soon as they are no longer needed for the above mentioned purposes.

When you actively provide information when contacting us

We will collect and process data you actively provided to us for when contacting us by means of communication such as e-mail, telephone or mail. These data are processed under the legal basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in communicating with you and answer your inquiry, which is not overridden by your interests, rights or freedoms since you contacted us yourself. We will not use the information as a basis for contacting you further for marketing purposes, unless you have given us your explicit consent to do so. Your contact details will be stored for six months after the inquiry has been completed, in order to be able to react to follow up inquiries, if these arise. We may retain your contact details for a longer duration, if an applicable legal obligation exists.

Linking Social Networks

We have placed links to social networks on our homepage. No plug-ins are used for this, only a reference to the website of the respective social network is made. We do not collect any data and do not track whether and which network you use or prefer.

Fresenius Netcare has no influence on the extent or type of data processed by clicking on the link of the social network thereafter.  To learn more about the amount of personal data collected and processed, the purpose for which your data may be used, and your respective rights and configuration options to protect your privacy (including your right of revocation), please read the privacy policy of the respective social network.

Recipients of your personal data

In order to provide our website we make use of external service providers (“Processors”), such as hosting service providers, who thereby get access to your personal data. All Processors are carefully chosen by us and regularly checked. These processors may only process personal data for the purposes determined by us and may only process data in accordance with this Data Protection Statement and applicable data protection laws.

We store your data in cloud. This means that your personal data may be processed by cloud service providers like Microsoft and stored in different countries within the European Union. We require these providers to implement similar data protection measures as we take based upon contractual arrangements.

In case the further processing of your inquiry requires the transfer of your personal data to another entity of Fresenius located outside of the EU, we will contact you and ask for your approval prior to transferring your personal data.

We will not disclose your personal data to any governmental authority, unless required by law. Our employees, agencies, and retailers are obliged to respect the confidentiality and protection of your personal data.
