Therefore, the processing of our customers' data is carried out exclusively in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations (e.g. DSGVO). We collect and process personal data if you provide us with this data (e.g. through contact requests, surveys, etc.) and we are entitled to collect, use and process it on the basis of a consent granted by you or on the basis of a legal provision. If we receive personal data from you from other companies, you will be informed of this as soon as possible, at the latest during the first contact. This data will also only be stored and processed on the basis of legal regulations.
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject").
We collect and process the following personal data on a voluntary basis via the contact form or in the context of your inquiries: Name, first name, e-mail address.
When conducting clinical studies, we process anonymized patient data. Anonymized data is information that cannot be related to an identified or identifiable natural person. The person is no longer identifiable. We do not process any personal data during purely informational use of the website, except for data that is technically collected automatically when the website is visited (see log data). We process the above-mentioned personal data for the following purposes:
- Communicating with you about products, services and projects, e.g. to process your inquiries;
- Scientific research;

- Settlement of legal disputes, enforcement of existing contracts and for the assertion, exercise and defense of legal claims.
The processing of personal data is necessary to achieve the above purposes, including the performance of the (contractual) business relationship with you. The legal basis for the data processing is - unless expressly stated otherwise - Article 6 (1) (b) and (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation or your expressly given consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation. Insofar as the above data is to be further processed for a purpose other than the original purpose of collection, you will be informed of this prior to further processing. In this way, you have the opportunity to object to the processing of your data for another purpose.
Passing on of data
All data that you provide to us will be treated confidentially. We will neither sell your personal data to third parties nor market them in any other way.
As a matter of principle, your data will not be made available to third parties for use unless you have given your consent to this or we are legally entitled and/or obliged to pass on this data.
We will disclose personal data to courts, tax authorities, regulatory authorities to the extent legally permitted and necessary to comply with applicable law or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. We take all measures to ensure appropriate and adequate safeguards to protect your personal data.
We transfer your personal data to our cloud provider for the above purposes.
Unless an explicit storage period is specified at the time of collection (e.g. as part of a declaration of consent), the personal data will be deleted insofar as it is no longer required to fulfill the purpose for which it was stored, unless legal retention obligations (e.g. retention obligations under commercial and tax law) prevent deletion.
We take technical and organizational security measures to protect the data we store and process in our company against manipulation, loss of confidentiality, destruction and against access by unauthorized persons. Our company's security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
