2. General notes and mandatory information
We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the data controller
The data controller for this website is:
OHST Medizintechnik AG
Grünauer Fenn 3
Tel.: +49 (0) 3385 5420 0
The data controller is the natural or legal entity which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or similar).
Data protection officer required by law
We have appointed a data protection officer for our company.
Contact details of the data protection officer:
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke any consent you have already given at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal email. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 2 GDPR).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual place of residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract transferred to you or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from „http://“ to „https://“ and by the padlock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. During the check you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data has happened / is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have lodged an objection under Article 21 Para. 1 GDPR, your interests must be weighed against ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, apart from their storage such data may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal entity or for reasons of an important public interest on the part of the European Union or a member state.
Objection to advertising emails
The use of contact data published within the framework of the legal notice obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested is hereby objected to. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, e.g. via spam emails.
3. Data collection on our website
In part the website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our services more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called „session cookies“. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Server log files
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
• browser type and browser version
• operating system used
• referrer URL
• host name of the accessing computer
• time of the server request
• IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website – for this purpose it is necessary to collect the server log files.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form or by email, your details from the enquiry form or your email, including the personal data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries. The entry of an email address is required to contact us, but the entry of your first and last name and your telephone number is voluntary. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent.
The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR and, if applicable, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is aimed at concluding a contract. Your data will be deleted after your request has been processed, provided that there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary. In the case of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR you can object to the processing of your personal data at any time.
Enquiry by email, telephone or fax
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data resulting from it (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, insofar as your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and / or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR), in that we have a legitimate interest in effectively processing the enquiries sent to us.
The data you send us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
4. Plugins and tools
Our website uses the online map service provider Google Maps via an interface. This enables us to show you interactive maps directly on the website and allows you to use the map function conveniently. The provider of the map service is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. To use the Google Maps functionality, it is necessary to save your IP address.
Since personal data is transferred to the USA, further protective protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, Google uses standard data protection provisions in accordance with Art. 46 Para. 2 lit. c GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even through this contractual supplement, we endeavour to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
