Privacy policy


Bioscientia Healthcare GmbH and all its subsidiaries take the protection of your personal data very seriously. With the following data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect and otherwise process and inform you about the rights to which you are entitled. We process your personal data only insofar as this is permitted on the basis of statutory regulations, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). As a matter of principle, we process your personal data as sparingly as possible. Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, name, address, telephone/fax number, e-mail address, but also IP address and date and time of access to our website.


I. Ensuring security and confidentiality


Bioscientia Healthcare GmbH uses technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data we have under our control against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons. To this end, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL via HTTPS.) Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. Our employees have been obligated to maintain data secrecy in accordance with the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) in conjunction with the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), to protect social data in accordance with the Social Code (Sozialgesetzbuch), and to maintain confidentiality in accordance with Sections 203, 204 of the Criminal Code (StGB) (Art. 29, Art. 32 (4) DSGVO). Our data protection officers worked to ensure compliance with data secrecy and the duty of confidentiality.

II. Processing of personal data when visiting our website


1. Access to website - collection of general data

During a purely informative visit to the website of Bioscientia Healthcare GmbH, i.e. if you do not use any of the services offered by us on the website or otherwise actively transmit information to us, personal data is usually only collected and recorded in so-called log files. Data that your web browser transmits to us and is stored in log files are, for example, the IP address, date and time, which files were called up, data volumes transferred, the website from which access was made and the identification data of the browser used.
The data collection takes place in pseudonymized form and for the purpose of being able to correctly display the contents of our website requested by you and to ensure the stability and security of the website. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

For the purpose of purely informational use of our website, no personal registration is required.

2. Contacting us via e-mail or contact form

We store and process personal data such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address only to the extent necessary for the performance of our services.
This is the case, for example, when contacting one of our employees by e-mail, if you thereby actively transmit the personal data to us. The legal basis for data processing in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
Your personal data will also be stored and processed if you contact us via the general contact form or register online for one of our medical events. The necessary mandatory information is marked with an (*); without this information, we cannot process your inquiry or registration. All other information is voluntary. In addition, you have the option of transferring the event date directly to your personal calendar and saving it there by clicking on the "Add date to calendar" button; this requires an explicit request from you.
We use the personal data sent only for the purposes of contacting you or for your registration for the event, its proper implementation and documentation. The legal basis for data processing in both cases is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, which you give us when contacting us or registering and submitting your personal data. Before you can submit the forms, you are therefore asked to confirm that you have taken note of this privacy policy and agree to the data processing associated with the contact or registration. Registration without a declaration of consent is technically not possible. You are entitled to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future (Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO); the data processing previously carried out on the basis of your consent remains lawful even after revocation.

Please do not send us any health data or other confidential data via one of the forms. Unauthorized access by third parties can never be completely ruled out in this respect; we expressly point this out to you here.

3. Application for open positions by e-mail
