The basis of effective data protection is comprehensive information about the collection, processing and use of your data (“data processing”). Therefore, we would like to inform you,
- when or during which actions we process data
- what data we process and for what reasons
- who receives data
- what rights you have because of data processing by us.
The transmission of information to or from this website is secured with TLS encryption.
Our policy is not just an exercise in complying with the law, but a continuation of our respect for you and your personal information. Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.
II. General Information
1. Data we process
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you. We have collated these into groups as follows:
Your identity includes information such as first name, last name, title, date of birth, and other identifiers that you may have provided at some time.
Your contact information includes information such as billing address, delivery address, email address, telephone numbers and any other information you have given to us for the purpose of communication or meeting.
Technical data includes your internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website.
We may aggregate anonymous data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Anonymous data is data that does not identify you as an individual. We may aggregate profile data to assess interest in a product or service. However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal information so that it can identify you in any way, we treat the combined data as personal information and it will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform that contract. In that case, we may have to stop providing a service to you. If so, we will notify you of this at the time.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
The legal bases for the processing of personal data are presented below. If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant, then we shall immediately stop processing your data. If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
- Fulfilment of contract or implementation of pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR)
Processing is only carried out to the extent necessary for the exercise and fulfilment of the rights and obligations arising from the contract. Unless expressly stated otherwise, data processing by us will only take place to this extent.
- Legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR)
Processing takes place insofar as we have a legitimate interest and no conflicting overriding interests of the data subject are apparent. The specific interest is explained in this data protection declaration as part of the processing description.
- Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR)
Processing takes place if you have expressly consented to the type and scope of data processing. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. However, the processing that has taken place up to this point will not be affected by this.
- Legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 c) GDPR)
Processing takes place insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of German or European legal obligations.
3. Data subject rights
If personal data relating to you is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of Art. 4 (1) GDPR. As a data subject, you are entitled to the following rights with regard to your personal data. To exercise these rights, you can contact us using the contact details provided above.
- Right to information according to Art. 15 GDPR
You have a right of access to your personal data processed by us. This includes the mandatory information set out in Art. 15 GDPR.
- Right of rectification according to Art. 16 GDPR
You have the right to request the immediate correction of incorrect personal data and the completion of incorrect personal data.

You have the right to request the erasure of your personal data if one of the reasons listed in Art. 17 GDPR applies, in particular if there is no longer a legal basis for the processing.
- Right to restriction of processing according to Art. 18 GDPR
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data if one of the reasons listed in Art. 18 GDPR applies, in particular at your request instead of deletion of the data.
- Right to data portability according to Art. 20 GDPR
In accordance with the provisions of Article 20 GDPR, you have the right to request the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided.
- Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority, Art. 77 GDPR
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for you in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR.
4. Possiblity of objection and removal
Insofar as the data processing is based on your consent or our legitimate interest, you have the right to object to the processing at any time or to revoke the consent you have given. Your objection or revocation only has effect for the future. If the analysis cookies used offer their own technical options for deactivation, this is shown there in each case. To exercise your right of objection or revocation, you can contact us under info[at]emergencetx.com at any time. If you object to processing on the basis of our legitimate interest, we may nevertheless continue processing if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms.
5. Data deletion and storage period
We delete your personal data as soon as the legal basis for its processing ceases to apply. In some cases, however, legal bases can also exist in parallel or a new legal basis can take effect when a legal basis ceases to exist, such as the obligation to store certain data in order to comply with a statutory retention obligation.
6. Third country data transfers
The personal data we collect from you through the website will not generally be transferred to third countries outside the European Economic Area.
Should a transfer to a third country occur in individual cases, we use the current standard data protection clauses (SCC) of the EU Commission to secure the transfer.
III. Specific data processing operations
1. Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you
When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us. In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information. We may use it in order to:
- verify your identity for security purposes
- sell products to you
- provide you with our services
- provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website
We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract. We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
2. Information we process with your consent
3. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests
We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so. Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:
- whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
- whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
- whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
- record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our organisational or business requirements
- responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
- protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
- insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage our organisational or business risk
- protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
4. Information we process because we have a legal obligation
Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation. For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorization such as a search warrant or court order. This may include your personal information.
5. Job application and employment
If you send us information in connection with a job application, we may keep it for up to three years in order to be able to legally defend ourselves against claims if necessary.. If we employ you, we collect information about you and your work from time to time throughout the period of your employment. This information will be used only for purposes directly relevant to your employment. After your employment has ended, we will keep your file for ten years before destroying or deleting it.
