Preamble

Welcome to our website! We take the protection of your data and your privacy very seriously. The purpose of this document is to provide you with information on what types of data we process and when, for what purpose and on what legal basis we process data. In the process, we would like to explain to you how our services work and how we protect your personal data.

In accordance with Art. 4(1) GDPR, personal data means all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is someone who can be identified, either directly or indirectly. For further information, please refer to Art. 4(1) GDPR.

This privacy policy can be accessed online at https://www.pinabausch.org/page/privacy-policy.

Where we cite our legitimate interest or a legitimate interest of a third party (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) as the lawful basis for the processing of personal data, you have a right of objection pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR:

Under Art. 21 GDPR, you have the right

to object at any time to the processing of your personal data. We will then no longer process the personal data for the stated purposes.

Nor will we then continue to process your personal data for any other purpose, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims (cf. Art. 21(1) GDPR, the “Limited right to object”). In this case, you must explain the reasons for the objection that relate to your particular situation.

You may also object on grounds relating to your particular situation to the processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest (cf. Art. 21(6) GDPR).

We will also refer you separately to the right of objection, if this right exists, in the individual sections (e.g. by adding the note: “You have the right to object“). There you will also find additional information on how to exercise your right to object.

To keep the following privacy policy easy to read, we use links to refer at various points to information and data protection notices which can be found on external websites (cf. also the “Social networks & external links” section in this privacy policy). We make every effort to keep the links that we list in this privacy policy up-to-date. Nevertheless, it is possible that, due to the constant updating of websites, the links may not function correctly. If you come across a broken link, we would appreciate if you could notify us so that we can update it.

Appearance and presence in social networks

Aside from this website, we also maintain a presence in various social media, which you can access by clicking on the corresponding buttons on our website. If you visit such a site, personal data may be transferred to the provider of the social network.

Please note that user data may also be transmitted to a server in a third country and thus processed outside the European Union.

It is possible that, aside from the storage of the data you specifically enter in this social medium, other information may be processed by the provider of the social network.

Moreover, the provider of the social network may process the most important data regarding the computer system from which you are accessing the social network – e.g. your IP address, the type of processor in your device and your browser version including plugins.

If you are logged in to your personal user account for the network in question while visiting such a website, this network will be able to associate your visit with your account.

However, we would like to point out that you use your personal user account for the network in question on your own responsibility.

The individual data processing operations and their scope will differ depending on the operator of the social network in question, and we may not necessarily be able to trace them. For details on the collection and storage of your personal data as well as on the type, scope and purpose of their use by the operator of the various social networks, please refer to the data protection declarations of the respective operators. Here you will also find information on how to object to the collection of data. :

When you visit our profile, your personal data will also transmitted to us via the provider of the social network.

When you visit one of our social media sites, you will trigger the processing of your personal data. In this case, in accordance with Art. 26 GDPR responsibility will be shared between us as the operator of the website and the social network.

As the operator of a Facebook or Instagram page, we can only view the information stored in your public Facebook or Instagram profile, and that only if you have such a profile and are logged in to it when you access our fan page. In addition, Facebook provides us with anonymous usage statistics that we use to improve the experience of users who visit our fan page. We do not have access to the usage data that Facebook or Instagram collects to compile these statistics.

Facebook and Instagram have assured us that they will take primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of these data, fulfil all the obligations of the GDPR in respect of these data and inform the data subjects of the key elements of this commitment. This data processing serves our (and your) legitimate interest in improving the user experience when visiting our website in line with the target group. The legal basis for the data processing is therefore Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. In addition, Facebook and Instagram use cookies that are stored on your end device when you visit our social media presence, even if you do not have your own Facebook profile or are not logged in to it during your visit to our presence. These cookies allow Facebook and Instagram to build user profiles based on your preferences and interests and to show you ads (inside and outside Facebook and Instagram) that are tailored to those preferences. Cookies will remain on your device until you delete them. Details can be found in the privacy statements of Instagram and Facebook (see above).

If you use our profiles on social networks to contact us (e.g. by creating your own posts, responding to one of our posts or sending us private messages), the data you provide us with will be processed by us solely for the purpose of contacting you. The legal basis for the data collection is therefore Art. 6(1)(a) and (b) GDPR. We will delete stored data as soon as their storage is no longer required or you request that we delete them; in the case of statutory retention obligations, we will limit the processing of the stored data accordingly.
