Use of personal data for the processing of contracts

If you place an order, we will process your personal information so that we can perform the contract (legal basis: Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR), and to store the data in accordance with our legal obligations according to the German Medical Device Ordinance (Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR, § 4 (3) of the German Medical Device Ordinance). We store your data in accordance with the legal requirements following completion of an order in accordance with the aforementioned legal requirements, and delete these data as soon as we no longer need them to comply with our legal obligation to demonstrate our compliance with the legal requirements. Service providers, transport and shipping companies, and credit institutions help us fulfil a contract. If you do not provide your data, the order cannot be completed, and other contract-related enquiries cannot be processed.

Credit check and debt collection

In order to help us make decisions about establishing, performing or ending a contractual relationship, in the event that we assume a risk of non-payment, we can also request and use probability values regarding your solvency and willingness to pay obtained from credit agencies, calculated using your data and your address data.

We may transmit personal data regarding any unpaid and undisputed receivables to credit agencies four weeks after the receipt of the first written demand in which we inform you of a potential consideration of receivables data by credit agencies, who will provide these data to other companies for credit checks if there is a legitimate interest. With the same requirements, we may transmit your corresponding data to a debt collection agency for collection on our behalf (debt collection) in the event of unpaid receivables.

Use of personal data for postal advertising

We will also use your name and address to provide you with more information about interesting products and services (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). We have a legitimate interest in promoting the sale of our products. For the sending of postal advertising, your data will be transmitted to a lettershop who will send the mail.
