What is personal data?

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. The decisive factor is therefore whether the data collected can be used to establish a personal reference. This includes information such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. Information that is not directly associated with your real identity - such as favorite websites or number of users of a site - is not personal data.

How do we collect or process your personal data?

You can visit this page without providing any personal information. Personal data is only collected if you voluntarily provide it to us during your visit to our website.

How do we use personal information about you, how do we share it with you?

If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily. E-mails are transmitted via a contact form. If you send us such a message, your personal data will only be collected to the extent necessary to respond. The e-mail is transmitted unencrypted.

We use the personal data provided by you exclusively for the purpose of technical administration of the websites and to fulfil your wishes and requirements, i.e. as a rule to process the contract concluded with you or to answer your enquiry.

Only if you have given us your prior consent or if you - as far as legal regulations provide for this - have not lodged an objection do we also use this data for product-related surveys, marketing purposes and statistical purposes.

Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or otherwise transmitted to third parties unless this is necessary for the purpose of processing the contract or you have expressly consented to this.

A given consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

How long will your data be stored?

In principle, we store all information that you transmit to us until the respective, e.g. contractual purpose is fulfilled. E.g. with inquiries up to the completion, with newsletters up to you the newsletter again unsubscribe. If a longer storage is provided for by law, the storage takes place within this framework.

Should you no longer wish us to use your data, we will of course comply with this request immediately. You can contact us at any time by sending an e-mail to dsb@med.uni-tuebingen.de.

When will your data be deleted?

The deletion of the stored personal data takes place if you revoke your consent for storage, if the knowledge of the data is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose pursued with the storage or if the storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons. Data for billing and accounting purposes will not be affected by a deletion request.

What we do for the safety of processing

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Should you wish to contact our company via e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information transmitted cannot be guaranteed. The content of e-mails can be viewed by third parties. We therefore recommend that you send us confidential information exclusively by post.
