Information about Data Privacy

The protection of your personal privacy as well as the security of your data and compliance with data privacy regulations are of utmost importance to Rentschler Biotechnologie. Below is detailed information about how we handle your data.

Data Collection

As a basic principle, you may use our websites without disclosing your personal data or your identity. If you visit one of our websites, data will be saved by default on our servers for security purposes, for example, the name of your browser and operating system, your Internet service provider, the website from which you reached us, our webpages you visit and your anonymized IP address as well as the date and length of your visit. In addition, these data are also generated when accessing any other webpage on the Internet. This is therefore not a specific function of the online presence of Rentschler Biotechnologie GmbH.

These data may possibly allow personal identification, however, Rentschler Biotechnologie does not utilize these data for such a purpose. We reserve the right to evaluate anonymized data sets for statistical purposes.

Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data

By accessing this website, you agree in particular to the following provisions:
If personal data are collected or used, this is carried out fundamentally in accordance with legal regulations, in particular with the German Federal Data Protection Act. The data privacy regulations of the country in which the institution responsible for data processing is located apply. Personal data, as per section 3 para. 1 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), are details on personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual person. This is information which can be used to identify you – for example, your actual name, address, mailing address, telephone number.
This does not include information which cannot be directly associated with your actual identity (for example, your bookmarked websites or number of users of a site).

We only store personal data if you voluntarily provide us with these data, for example, as part of an application, a registration, by filling out forms or sending emails, or in the context of ordering services, making inquiries or requesting material.
We will only use your personal data to provide you with the services desired or for the purposes for which you granted your consent – provided that there are no legal requirements that state otherwise.
Personal data will be sent to governmental institutions and authorities only within the framework of mandatory national legislation. We require our employees and service providers to maintain confidentiality. Data will not be transmitted to third parties.

Transmission of your Data

Your data will be transmitted to the company commissioned to perform a service, if applicable, provided this is necessary to fulfill your order. To process payments, we will transfer your payment data to the authorized banking institution.

Google Analytics

If you visit our webpages, we use the statistics tool from Google Analytics to store the history of your visit to the website as well as the date and duration of the visit. Google collects personal data using cookies if you sign up for a Google service or otherwise voluntarily provide data.
Google uses cookies and other technologies to make it easier for you to use online services and in this way, Google learns how you use Google services.
Google's servers automatically record data if you visit Rentschler Biotechnologie's webpages or use Google products. As a result, the URL, your IP address, browser type and browser language, as well as the date and time of your web request are recorded, among other things.

Data privacy information on Google Analytics
If you do not want the history of your visit to the Rentschler Biotechnology website to be stored by Google, you can prevent this by disabling/rejecting the use of cookies in your browser. However, this may cause some elements or services to not function properly.


Anonymization:
We would like to point out that our website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" so that IP addresses are only recorded in truncated form and thus they cannot be traced to a specific person.

If retention periods for commercial- and tax-related purposes must be observed, certain data may be stored for up to 10 years.

To do this, it is sufficient to send an email to our data privacy officer.

According to the German Federal Data Protection Act. you are entitled to receive information about your stored data at no charge. You have the right to check and correct all of your personal data which we have stored. To do this, it is sufficient to send an email to the email address listed in the Legal Notice or to our data privacy officer.
