Privacy policy and consent to data use

The following detailed privacy policy explains the data that are collected on our website and the data that we process and use. Data protection is important to us, and we take it very seriously. We rely on trustworthy cooperation with you and make every effort to fully satisfy you - this naturally also applies to the handling of your personal data. With these data protection provisions, we would like to inform you regarding how your personal data are processed. Therefore, please take the following information into consideration. Our data protection provisions supplement the Terms of the INVITEC website. During the course of development of our website and implementation of new legal requirements, new technologies, or in order to improve our service for you, modifications to this privacy policy may be required. For that reason, we recommend that you occasionally read through this privacy policy again.

1. Responsible controller

The operator of this website and the responsible controller in terms of data protection is:

Düsseldorfer Landstraße 17
47249 Duisburg

2. General information on processing personal data

This privacy policy applies to data about you, including personal data, collected by INVITEC. Personal data are data or a combination of individual data by means of which you can be identified. 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. In no case will we forward your personal data to third parties outside of the INVITEC for advertising or marketing purposes without your consent. As an international company, we work together with external service providers. To the extent that processed data which contain personal content, corresponding contractual agreements and organizational measures have been enacted according to applicable law which ensure the security of your data. In our company, compliance with legal regulations and this policy is monitored by our data protection officers. Our employees are trained to handle personal data and have committed in writing to comply with data protection regulations. As a general rule, our website can be used without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (name, address or email addresses, for example) are collected, this is always on a voluntary basis whenever possible. We draw your attention to the fact that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may involve gaps in security. We attempt to protect your data from unauthorized access by third parties by means of precautions such as pseudonymization, data economy, observing deletion periods and in consideration of the current state of the art technology. Despite these protective measures, however, we cannot completely rule out unlawful processing by third parties.

3. Data collection and processing in case of access from the Internet

When you visit our website, our web servers save each access temporarily to a log file. The following data are entered and saved until automated deletion:

  • Anonymized IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of the access
  • Name and URL of the called data
  • Report whether the call was successful
  • Identification data of the used browser and operating system
  • Website, from which the access is carried out
  • Name of your Internet access provider

The lawful processing of these data occurs for the purposes of enabling use of the website (establishing connection), for system security, for technical administration of the network infrastructure and for optimization of the Internet offering. By agreeing to this privacy policy, you give your consent to our collection of these data. You may refuse this data processing. Insofar as you refuse the use of the data, we hereby inform you that our services may only be usable to limited degree. These personal data are not processed beyond the cases indicated above, unless you explicitly consent to further processing.

4. Purpose of the data use

In accordance with the principle of data avoidance and data economy of the General Data Protection Regulation, we only collect personal data on our website when it is either required for your desired purpose, we are obligated to do so due to legal regulations or contracts, if we have a legitimate interest and/or if you voluntarily give us your consent. When entering personal or business data (e.g. email address, name, address), the disclosure of your data is performed on an explicitly voluntary basis. We process your contact and business-related data based on statutory regulations in connection with existing or pending business relationships. In addition, with your input, you declare your consent for the data entered to be collected, processed or used for the purpose designated by you. We process and save your provided data only as long as required for the intended purpose and delete these after fulfilling the purpose or after expiration of the respective retention periods. Collection, processing or use does not occur for any other purpose. Your consent for data use can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. Insofar as you refuse the use of the data, we hereby inform you that our services may only be usable to a limited degree.

The following are possibilities of how we can use the data: Due to statutory regulations:

  • Execution of our General Terms and Conditions
  • Management of our business
  • Protection from or determination of possible fraudulent transactions

Owing to contractual purposes:

  • Payment processing for purchases and other services
  • Processing of your application documents

Due to your consent:

  • Making contact
  • Sending of samples, rewards, products and information
  • Registration with competitions, programs or offers at your request
  • Delivery of other services that we have offered to you
  • If permissible by law, delivery of user-specific, unsolicited offers and information about the products and services of INVITEC
  • Surveys on our websites
  • Development and provision of advertising that is adjusted to your interests

Owing to our legitimate interest:
  • Determination of the effectiveness of our advertising
  • Development of new products and services
  • Analysis of the use of our products, services and websites
  • Knowledge, how you reached our website

5. How we use your data

We use the data, which we collect, in order to make the products and services requested by you available, to inform you about other products and services offered by INVITEC and to manage our websites and services (e.g. newsletter) and to satisfy our rights and obligations with regard to data processing as stipulated by law.

6. Deletion of your data

We will only save your data as long as this is required or permissible according to statutory regulations or within the scope of the joint business relationship. All of your personal data is subsequently deleted, provided this is not opposed by any statutory retention period.

7. Protection of minors

Children and people under the age of 18 normally do not transmit personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children and we affirm that we do not collect personal data from children, nor do we use it in any way or disclose it to third parties without authorization.

8. Transmission of data via the Internet

The Internet is a globally open platform. Due to the Internet's inherent mode of operation and the systemic risks involved, any data transmissions are made at your own risk. For your security we exclusively offer our services via the encrypted transmission channel.

9. Forwarding of data to third parties

Your personal data will not be forwarded to third parties (thus outside of the INVITEC), unless you have granted us your corresponding prior consent. Excluded from this provision is the forwarding to service partners, such as for example parcel service provider or freight forwarders, if the transmission is necessary for the order processing or delivery of the goods. The logistics service providers receive the data that are required for the delivery for use at their own responsibility. We accordingly restrict this to sending the data that are necessary for the delivery. In addition, other service providers are involved in the work for the initiation and processing of the contracts, such as for example IT service providers or the hosting service provider for the website. These companies operate for B. Braun within the framework of a so-called order processing and may only use the personal data according to our instructions. INVITEC has obligated these service providers to the General Data Protection Regulation as per contract and monitors these companies. In all of these cases the transmission will be carried out in line with the applicable national and European data protection provisions; the scope of the transmitted data is only limited to the necessary minimum in this case.

10. INVITEC Service area

For the use of the service area no personal data are collected from our side.

11. Your rights as a data subject

You always have the right of access (Art. 15 GDPR) to your personal data, their 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). You may also revoke a consent (right to object Art. 21 GDPR) granted by you for the processing and use of your data, which is not necessary owing to a superordinate legal regulation or directly for the processing of an existing contractual relationship, at all times. In this respect and with regard to further questions relating to the topic of personal data you can contact us at the address stated in the imprint. Upon request, we will inform you in writing if and which personal data we have stored about you, in accordance with applicable law.
