I. Basic Information on Data Processing

Thank you for your interest in our company. The protection of your personal data is of paramount concern for us. We therefore want to inform you comprehensively about the information we collect on our websites, the purpose we use it for, who we might make it available to and what rights you have (art. 12 and 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR).

Our personal privacy measures are guided by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, VO EU 2016/679), effective 2018-05-25. With the simple citation of a regulation enclosed in parentheses, we want to express which standard is used to justify the data processing, and if personal data are processed during this process.

II. Purpose, Legal Basis and Data Categories

Generally, it is not required that you provide personally identifiable information to visit our website. Technically, however, the IP address transmitted from your system is necessary to transfer the data from our website to you. Beyond the freely accessible area of our website –to process your contact form, for example – we need your personal data, as appropriate, in order to be able to personally respond to you.

III. Cookies

Reskin Medical uses cookies to track website visitor preferences and enable the best possible configuration of the website. Using cookies enable optimized website navigation and increase the user friendliness of our website.

Cookies are small files that are stored on your device. They can be used to determine whether your device has previously communicated with our Web pages. The cookie is the only file on your device that is identified. Personal data can only be stored in cookies if you have agreed to this, or this is technologically mandatory, e.g., to enable login to a protected area.

When you visit our website, we receive your complete IP address from your EDP. Only with this IP address are we able to transmit the data of our website to you so that the website displays for you (Art. 6 (1)(b) and (f) GDPR). Beyond the processing for transmission of the called up data, the full IP address is stored for only two days in order to be in a position to initiate defensive measures against attacks on our IT, such as a block of IP addresses as well as possible criminal prosecution (Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR).

Our third-party providers have requested we inform you of the following:

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a Google Web analysis service (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; “Google“). Google Analytics employs  cookies  that facilitate analysis of your use of our websites and online services. The information generated on your use of these websites and online offerings – including information on device events, such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser version, browser language, installed add-ins, screen resolution, device type, date and time of your query and referring URL – are transmitted on our behalf to a server of Google in the United States and stored indefinitely. We use Google Analytics only with the activated IP anonymization extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses transmitted to Google are truncated and processed in advance by Google on servers residing in the EU in order to exclude a direct identification of an individual through the IP address in the US. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a server of Google in the US and then truncated there.

We use this information to analyze visits to the website in order to compile reports about the website activities for us so that we better understand how our site is used and where we can improve it (Art. 6 (1)(b) and (f) GDPR). Pseudonymous usage profiles can thereby be created from the processed data. Google will also transfer this information in some cases, when legally mandated or to the extent that third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will not associate your IP address with other Google data under any circumstances.

You can find further information on data usage for advertising purposes through Google, setting options and ways to object on the Google websites: https://www.google.com/intl/eng/policies/privacy/partners/ (“How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Data usage for advertising purposes”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads (“Control the information Google uses to show you ads”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ (“Make the ads you see more useful to you”).

You have a right to object and you can prevent the installation and storage of the cookie for Google Analytics through a corresponding setting in your browser. Details to blocking cookies can be found under “Help” on your browser. In addition, you can prevent collection, for Google, of the data that is generated by the cookie and related to your use of the online offering as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the Link browser plug-in of Google available at the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=eng.

An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the collection of your data when visiting this website in the future. With this browser plug-in, the collection and storage of data for Google Analytics can also be objected to at any time with future effect.

IV. Data Processing through Social Networks

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks.

Normally, social networks such as Facebook can analyze every aspect of your user behavior when you visit their websites or a website with integrated social media contents (e.g., “like” buttons or advertisement banners). Every visit to our social media presence initiates a number of processing procedures that are entitled to privacy protection. In particular:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, under some circumstances your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have any account with the respective social media portal. In this case, your data is collected through cookies, for example, which were saved on your end device or when your IP address was saved.

The social media portal operator can then use such collected data to create user profiles based on your preferences and interests. Thus, advertisements reflecting your interests can be displayed to you both on the respective social media presence and off it. If you have an account at the particular social network, these advertisements tailored to your interests can be displayed on all devices you are or were logged in from.

Please also note, we can neither monitor nor control all processing procedures employed by social media portals. Depending on the portal provider, your data may be used in other processing. You will find relevant information in the terms of use and privacy policies of the specific social media portal.
