1. Scope of application
Thank you for your interest in our company. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we provide details about the handling of your data.
2. Access data
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Each time you access our website, the webserver automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents accessed.
This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which outweighs our interests in the context of a balancing of interests. All access data is deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the site.
3. Deletion and blocking of personal data
We process and store personal subject data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or insofar as this is provided for by the applicable laws to which the controller is subject.
If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a legally prescribed storage period expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
4. Collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose of their use
a) When visiting the website
In principle, you can use our website without disclosing your identity. When you visit our website, information is automatically sent to our website server by the browser used on your terminal device. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automated deletion:
- IP address of the requesting computer,
- date and time of access,
- name and URL of the accessed file,
- website from which the access was made (referrer URL),
- browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.
The aforementioned data is processed by us for the following purposes:
- ensuring a smooth connection with the website,
- ensuring a comfortable use of our website,
- evaluation of system security and stability, and
- for further administrative purposes.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para.1, lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows on from the purpose of data collection as listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your personal information.
b) When using our contact form
For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on our website. In doing so, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address so that we know from whom the inquiry originates and where to direct a response. Further information can be provided voluntarily. It is your free decision whether you want to enter this data in the contact form.
Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para.1, lit. a) GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.
5. E-mail advertising with newsletter registration
If you register for our newsletter, or separately provide your contact information, we use the data to regularly send you our e-mail newsletter based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
We would like to point out that our service provider Marketo EMEA Ltd, Cairn House, South County Business Park, Leopardstown Road, Dublin 18, Ireland evaluates your user behavior when sending the newsletter or other requested information on our behalf. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons, also called tracking pixels. These are single-pixel image files that link to our web portal and thus enable us to evaluate your user behavior on a session basis. In doing so, we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on in them and infer your personal interests from this. Marketo stores the information collected in this way on its server in the EU / EEA.
Tracking is not possible if you have deactivated the display of images by default in your e-mail program. In this case, however, the newsletter will not be fully displayed to you and you may not be able to use all the features. If you display the images manually, the above-mentioned tracking will take place.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the link provided in the newsletter for this purpose. After unsubscribing, we will delete your e-mail address, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this statement.
6. Provision of documents/ download
When you download a document, we request your name, company and e-mail address. We collect this data for information interest and also for personal contact. The legal basis is the legitimate interest according to Art.6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
7. Registration for events
On our website, you can register for various events. In order to be able to process your registration, we collect and process the following data based on your declaration of consent given during registration:
Mandatory fields: Salutation, first name, last name, institution, e-mail address.
In order to register, you must accept our data protection notice. The data will be forwarded by encrypted e-mail to the responsible person at Resolve BioSciences GmbH and exported to our local database for further processing.
We use your data for the organization of the event, in particular
- we print some of the data (name, institution, e-mail address) in the printed program booklet,
- we print some of the data (name, institution) on your name badge,
- we pass on some of the data (name, institution, function) to the moderators of the forums/workshops,
- we may use your contact data (name, e-mail address) to send materials relevant to the event (e.g. program, evaluation, conference proceedings),
- we pass on your data (name, institution, function) to the cooperating institution as far as this is necessary for the provision of the service.
You have the option to object to the use of your data for these purposes in whole or in part at any time by sending an e-mail with your objection to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then immediately stop sending you further information and your data will be deleted. In this case, we may no longer be able to respond to your request and ensure your participation in the event. After the program booklet has been printed (approx. 10 days before the event), you can no longer object to the use of your data according to 1.
8. Further explanations on the legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 (1), lit. a) GDPR serves Resolve BioSciences GmbH as the legal basis for processing operations for which consent must be obtained for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our services and products. If Resolve BioSciences GmbH is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. In this case, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(d) of the GDPR. Furthermore, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 (1), lit. f) GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of Resolve BioSciences GmbH or a third party, unless such interest is overridden by the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator (cf. recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
9. Consideration of legitimate interests
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 (1), lit. f) GDPR, the legitimate interest of Resolve BioSciences GmbH is the performance and fulfillment of our business activities for the benefit of our employees and shareholders.
10. Passing on of data
Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties by us to our partner company in the USA involved in the processing of the contract, service partners such as the logistics company commissioned with the delivery and the credit institution commissioned with payment matters. In cases where your personal data is passed on to third parties, however, the scope of the data transferred is limited to the minimum required.
We do not transfer your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned above.
We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
- you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 para.1, lit. a) GDPR,
- the disclosure is required under Art.6 para.1, lit. f) GDPR for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
- in the event that there is a legal obligation for disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1), lit. c) GDPR,
- it is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para.1, lit. b) GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you.
As part of the ordering process, consent is obtained from you for the transfer of your data to third parties.
11. Recipients of personal data
