The operator of this website and the responsible controller in terms of data protection is:
B. Braun Avitum AG
Schwarzenberger Weg 73-77
We process your personal data in compliance with the data protection laws of the Federal Republic of Germany and the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Our employees are trained to handle personal data and have committed in writing to comply with the applicable data protection regulations.
When you visit our website, our web servers save each access temporarily to a log file. The following information is captured and processed until automated deletion:
When this website is used purely for informational purposes, B. Braun Avitum AG collects only those personal data that are necessary in technical terms in order to display the website and enable the use thereof (establishment of a connection), for system security and stability, for the technical administration of the network structure and to optimize the website. The legal basis for this is the legitimate interest of B. Braun Avitum AG (Article 6 para. 1lit. f GDPR as described above). You may object to this data processing. Insofar as you object to the use of this data, we hereby inform you that our services may only be usable to limited degree.
The application was designed to offer you the opportunity to explore B. Braun products and services on a virtual exhibition booth. The focus of the website is on the transfer of information. In addition, you can contact B. Braun employees via a live chat or fill out a contact request form. Furthermore, you can register in the Dialog Expert area and gain access to scientific content. Therefore you can request a general password by submitting an e-mail through the application to B. Braun Avitum with you names and E-Mail address. It is also possible for you to leave a virtual greeting on the interactive wall. In case, personal data is collected, this is always on a voluntary basis.
When using our live chat or contact form, you can add your name, e-mail and country so that we can discuss and answer your requests with our relevant country contacts and product managers. Your data will only be used and, if necessary, forwarded within the B. Braun Group or towards external distributors for these purposes and, where appropriate, to our country contacts worldwide.
Your personal data collected when using the live chat, contact form, interactive wall or registering (by sending an request to B. Braun Avitum with your names an E-Mail address) will be processed on the basis of your voluntary consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.
Your data is stored by B. Braun Avitum AG only as long as it is required for certain purposes. Consequently, your data is erased if and when:
unless storage periods stipulated by law apply.
This does not apply to data whose erasure would involve disproportionate effort. In cases like these, B. Braun is deemed to have a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 para.1lit f GDPR in storing your data.
Your data within the chat will be stored for 6 months and will be deleted after this time.
Depending on your request, it might be necessary to forward your request to one of our worldwide subsidiaries or external distributors that are located outside the European Union. The data protection existing in so-called third countries is not comparable with the German or European standards, therefore appropriate data protection cannot be guaranteed continuously. Nevertheless, in order to guarantee the security of your data as far as possible, B. Braun Avitum AG takes necessary protective measures. Your data is therefore only forwarded according to the principle of purpose limitation and data economy so that only the absolutely essential information that is provided by you is forwarded.
We also use service providers for the hosting of the website. Hosting of the website takes place in the European Union. The service provider has entered into an agreement with B. Braun Avitum AG according to the applicable data protection law (processing on behalf of a controller) and may only use the personal data according to our instructions.
The website of B. Braun Avitum AG may contain links to third-party websites over whose content B. Braun Avitum AG has no influence. After you click a link, you leave the sphere of responsibility of B. Braun Avitum AG. Processing of data thereafter no longer takes place within the sphere of influence of B. Braun Avitum AG.
Our websites also use so-called "cookies." Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and that your browser saves. They do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. They serve to make our offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Some cookies (so-called "functional cookies," e.g. for language settings and order processes) are those that are required in order to guarantee the essential functions of the website. Without them, the website cannot be used as intended. The majority of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies“. They will be deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete these. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser again on the next visit.
We have taken extensive precautions to protect the security of your data. The data transmitted to us that you have entered e.g. in HTML websites (contact forms) are transmitted in an encrypted form (SSL - Secure Socket Layer) via the public data network to B. Braun, where they are saved and processed.
This website uses an SSL encryption for reasons of security and for the protection of the transmission of confidential contents, such as for example the inquiries that you send us as the website 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 the SSL encryption is activated the data, which you transmit to us, cannot be read by third parties. Despite these protective measures, however, we cannot completely rule out unlawful processing by third parties.
You always have the right of access (Art. 15 GDPR) to your personal data, the origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, free of charge, as well as a right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR), erasure (Art. 17 GDPR) or to restriction of processing of these data (Art. 18 GDPR). Furthermore, you have the right to obtain the personal data relating to you that you have provided to a responsible party, in a structured, common and machine-readable format (right to data portability Art. 20 GDPR).
Objection to the processing of your data based on legitimate interests
You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time if this is done by B. Braun Avitum AG based on a legitimate interest (pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). As a result, the processing of your data will be halted unless B. Braun Avitum AG can show that there are legal provisions concerning this or that it has reasons to continue processing the data based on legitimate interests. This is the case, for example, if data is still required in order to be able to assert legal claims where applicable.
Objection to processing for direct marketing purposes
You can object to the processing of your personal data for purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time (“advertising objection”). On this point and for further questions concerning personal data, you can contact us using the contact information under point 12, “Your contacts for data privacy matters.” Upon request, we will inform you in writing if and which personal information we process about you, in accordance with applicable law.
