The controller in the meaning of the data protection laws and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in particular is: MedSurv GmbH

Your rights as a data subject

You may exercise the following rights at any time using the contact details for our Data Protection Officer that are provided here:

• obtain information on the data stored about you and how it is processed;
• obtain rectification of incorrect personal data;
• obtain erasure of the data we have stored about you;
• obtain restriction of data processing, where we are unable to erase your data due to legal obligations;
• object to the processing of your data by us; and
• obtain data portability, where you have consented to data processing, or have entered into a contract with us.

Where you have provided consent, you may withdraw this consent at any time, effective for the future.

You are entitled at any time to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority that is responsible for you. The supervisory authority responsible for you depends on the federal state of your habitual residence, your workplace or the alleged infringement.

Purposes of data processing by the controller and third parties

We only process your personal data for the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those stated here. We only transfer your personal data to third parties where:

• you have provided your explicit consent for us to do so;
• processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you;
• processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation,
• processing is necessary to safeguard legitimate interests and there are no reasons to assume that you have overriding interests in the nondisclosure of your data that require protection.

Deletion, i.e. blocking of the data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data efficiency. Therefore, we store your personal data only for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes set out herein or as required by the various retention periods defined by law. The data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with the legal obligations once the individual purpose no longer applies, i.e. at the end of these periods.

On no accounts will the data collected by cookies be passed on to third parties without your consent, nor will the information be associated with your personal data.

SSL encryption

We use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) in HTTPS in order to protect the security of your data during transfer.
