The SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH Data Privacy Declaration is based on the definitions that were used by the European Directives and Regulations Regulator when it issued the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our Data Privacy Declaration should be legible and comprehensible both for our customers and our business partners. In order to assure this, we would like to explain the used definitions in advance.
We use the following terms in this Data Privacy Declaration that are explained in the GDPR (https://dsgvo-gesetz.de/art-4-dsgvo/):
- Personal data
- Data subject
- Restriction of processing
- Controller or person responsible for the processing
- Third party
- rights of the data subjects
Under the conditions of the statutory provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), you have the following rights as a data subject:
- -Information pursuant to Art. 15 DSGVO about the data stored about you in the form of meaningful information about the details of the processing, as well as a copy of your data;
- Correction pursuant to Art. 16 DSGVO of incorrect or incomplete data stored by us;
- Erasure pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO of the data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;
- Restriction of processing pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed, the processing is unlawful, we no longer need the data and you object to their deletion because you need them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO.
- Data portability pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO, insofar as you have provided us with personal data within the scope of consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or on the basis of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and these have been processed by us with the aid of automated procedures. You will receive your data in a structured, common and machine-readable format or we will transfer the data directly to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible.
- You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 of the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO), insofar as this is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e, f DSGVO and there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. The right to object does not exist if overriding compelling legitimate grounds for the processing can be demonstrated or the processing is carried out for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Where the right to object does not exist for individual processing operations, this is indicated there.
- Revocation pursuant to Art. 7 (3) DSGVO of your granted consent with effect for the future.
- Complaint pursuant to Art. 77 of the GDPR to a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence, your place of work or our company headquarters.
- Data storage
Each time the SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system, it records a set of general data and information. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded:
- the used browser types and their versions,
- the operating system that is used by the accessing system,
- the website that a system accesses our website from (referred to as a referrer),
- the sub-websites that are driven to our website using an accessing system,
- the date and time the website is accessed,
- an Internet Protocol address (IP address),
- the Internet service provider of the accessing system and
- other similar data and information that serve as defence against risks resulting from attacks being launched against our information technology systems.
SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH does not draw any conclusions regarding the data subject when using this general data and information. This information is in fact required in order to
- provide the contents of our website correctly,
- the optimisation of our website and the advertising of this,
- ensure the perfect functionality of our information technological systems and our website technology and
- in order to provide criminal prosecution authorities with the required information in the event of a cyber-attack being launched.
This anonymously obtained data and information is therefore statistically analysed by SCHLUMBOHM MedizinLabor-Technologie GmbH in addition to this being carried out with the aim of enhancing the data privacy and data security in our company so that we can last but not least, ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data that we process. The anonymous data in the server log files are stored separate from all of the personal data that a data subject has provided
- Statutory or contractual regulations regarding the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of such not being provided.
We hereby inform you that the provision of personal data is statutory stipulated in some cases (e.g. fiscal provisions) or this can result from contractual provisions (e.g. data regarding the contractual partner). From time to time, it could be possible in connection with the conclusion of a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we need to process subsequently. The data subject is for example obliged to provide us with personal data should our company conclude a contract with the said person. A non-provision of the personal data has the consequence that the contract cannot be concluded with the data subject. The data subject is to contact our Data Protection Officer before he or she provides the personal data. Our Data Protection Officer shall then inform the data subject on a case by case basis, whether the provision of the personal data is a statutory or a contractual requirement or whether the personal data are to be provided for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences should the personal data not be provided.
- Use of data when registering for the email newsletter
On the website of the SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise’s newsletter. The personal data transmitted to the controller when the newsletter is ordered is specified in the input mask used for this purpose.
The SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The newsletter of our enterprise can basically only be received by the data subject, if
- the data subject has a valid e-mail address, and
- the data subject registers for the newsletter mailing.
For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a data subject for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email serves to check whether the owner of the email address as the data subject has authorised the receipt of the newsletter. If you do not confirm the registration within [XX hours], it will automatically expire and the data will not be processed for the newsletter dispatch.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP), as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject’s email address at a later date and therefore serves as a legal safeguard for the controller.
The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter are used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter service or changes in the technical circumstances. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. Furthermore, it is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing directly on the website of the controller at any time or to inform the controller of this in another way.
- Newsletter tracking
The SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH newsletters include so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is integrated in such emails that are sent in HTML format in order to enable a log file recording and log file analysis to be carried out. This enables a statistical analysis to be performed of the success or lack of success of online marketing campaigns. SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH can use an integrated tracking pixel in order to detect whether an email has been opened by a data subject and if so, when this was carried out in addition to whether the links in the email were used by the data subject.
Personal data that is collected via the tracking pixel in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the processor in order to optimise the sending of the newsletter and adapt the contents of the future newsletters to the interests of the data subject to a better extent. These personal data are not forwarded to third parties. The data subjects are entitled at all times to withdraw the declaration of consent that is provided using the double opt-in procedure in this regard. After a withdrawal has been declared, the processer deletes this personal data. A deregistration from the newsletter is automatically construed by SCHLUMBOHM Medizin¬Labor-Technologie GmbH as being a withdrawal.
- Contact possibility through the website
The website of the SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH contains legal requirements which enable a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties..

- Use of social media
We maintain so-called fan pages or accounts or channels on the networks mentioned below in order to provide you with information and offers also within social networks and to offer you further ways to contact us and to inform yourself about our offers. In the following, we will inform you about which data we or the respective social network process from you in connection with calling up and using our fan pages/accounts.
Data that we process from you
If you wish to contact us via messenger or direct message via the respective social network, we generally process your user name via which you contact us and, if applicable, store further data provided by you insofar as this is necessary to process/respond to your request.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO (processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller).
(Static) usage data we receive from social networks
We receive automatically provided statistics regarding our accounts via Insights functionalities. The statistics include, among other things, the total number of page views, likes, details of page activity and post interactions, reach, video views and details of the proportion of men/women among our fans/followers.
The statistics only contain aggregated data that cannot be related to individual persons. You are not identifiable to us through this.
What data the social networks process from you
In order to view the contents of our fan pages or accounts, you do not have to be a member of the respective social network and, in this respect, no user account is required for the respective social network.
Insofar as you wish to interact with the content on our fan pages/accounts, e.g. comment on, share or like our postings/contributions and/or contact us via messenger functions, prior registration with the respective social network and the provision of personal data is required.
We have no influence on the data processing by the social networks within the scope of their use by you. To our knowledge, your data is stored and processed in particular in connection with the provision of the services of the respective social network, as well as for the analysis of user behaviour (using cookies, pixels/web beacons and similar technologies), on the basis of which advertising based on your interests is played both within and outside the respective social network. It cannot be ruled out that your data will be stored by the social networks outside the EU/EEA and passed on to third parties.
When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as operators of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more detailed information on this under the following link: https://facebook.com/help/pages/insights.
It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual users by means of the statistical information transmitted. We only use this information to respond to the interests of our users and to continuously improve our online presence and ensure its quality.
We only collect your data via our fan page in order to make it available for communication and interaction with us. This collection usually includes your name, message content, comment content and the profile information you provide “publicly”.
The processing of your personal data for our above-mentioned purposes is based on our legitimate business and communicative interest in offering an information and communication channel pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO. Should you, as a user, have given your consent to the data processing vis-à-vis the respective provider of the social network, the legal basis of the processing extends to Art. 6 para. 1 a), Art. 7 DSGVO.
Due to the fact that the actual data processing is carried out by the provider of the social network, our access to your data is limited. Only the provider of the social network is authorised to fully access your data. Because of this, only the provider can directly take and implement appropriate measures to fulfil your user rights (information request, deletion request, objection, etc.). The assertion of corresponding rights is therefore most effective directly against the respective provider.
We are jointly responsible with Facebook for the personal content of the fan page. Data subject rights can be asserted with Facebook Ireland as well as with us.
The primary responsibility for the processing of Insights data lies with Facebook under the GDPR and Facebook fulfils all obligations under the GDPR with regard to the processing of Insights data, Facebook Ireland provides the essence of the Page Insights Supplement to data subjects.
