The SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH Data Privacy Declaration is based on the definitions that were used by the European Directives and Regulations Regulator when it issued the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our Data Privacy Declaration should be legible and comprehensible both for our customers and our business partners. In order to assure this, we would like to explain the used definitions in advance.
We use the following terms in this Data Privacy Declaration that are explained in the GDPR (https://dsgvo-gesetz.de/art-4-dsgvo/):
Restriction of processing
Controller or person responsible for the processing
Each time the SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system, it records a set of general data and information. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded:
the used browser types and their versions,
the operating system that is used by the accessing system,
the website that a system accesses our website from (referred to as a referrer),
the sub-websites that are driven to our website using an accessing system,
the date and time the website is accessed,
an Internet Protocol address (IP address),
the Internet service provider of the accessing system and
other similar data and information that serve as defence against risks resulting from attacks being launched against our information technology systems.
SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH does not draw any conclusions regarding the data subject when using this general data and information. This information is in fact required in order to
provide the contents of our website correctly,
the optimisation of our website and the advertising of this,
ensure the perfect functionality of our information technological systems and our website technology and
in order to provide criminal prosecution authorities with the required information in the event of a cyber-attack being launched.
This anonymously obtained data and information is therefore statistically analysed by SCHLUMBOHM MedizinLabor-Technologie GmbH in addition to this being carried out with the aim of enhancing the data privacy and data security in our company so that we can last but not least, ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data that we process. The anonymous data in the server log files are stored separate from all of the personal data that a data subject has provided.
Statutory or contractual regulations regarding the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of such not being provided.
We hereby inform you that the provision of personal data is statutory stipulated in some cases (e.g. fiscal provisions) or this can result from contractual provisions (e.g. data regarding the contractual partner). From time to time, it could be possible in connection with the conclusion of a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we need to process subsequently. The data subject is for example obliged to provide us with personal data should our company conclude a contract with the said person. A non-provision of the personal data has the consequence that the contract cannot be concluded with the data subject. The data subject is to contact our Data Protection Officer before he or she provides the personal data. Our Data Protection Officer shall then inform the data subject on a case by case basis, whether the provision of the personal data is a statutory or a contractual requirement or whether the personal data are to be provided for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences should the personal data not be provided.
Use of data when registering for the email newsletter
The SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH website provides the users the possibility of registering for our newsletter. The personal data that is required when registering for the newsletter are stated in the input mask that is to be sent to the controller for processing.
SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH provides its customers and business partners with regular information on its offers in the form of a newsletter. Our newsletter can only be received by the data subject if
the data subject has a valid email address and
the data subject registers for the newsletter.
When a data subject registers for the newsletter for the first time, a confirmation mail is sent to the entered email address in double opt-in proceedings on legal grounds. The confirmation mail serves to validate that the owner of the email address is the data subject that has authorised the receiving of the newsletter.
When the newsletter is registered for, we also store the IP address that was issued by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) for the computer system that was used by the data subject for the registration in addition to the date and time of the registration. The obtaining of this data is necessary in order to reproduce a (possible) abuse of the email address of a data subject later, it therefore serving a legal protection of the controller who is responsible for the processing.
The personal data that are obtained in the scope of a registration for the newsletter are exclusively used for the sending of our newsletter. Subscribers to the email can then also be informed should this be necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in this regard, such as in the event of changes being made to the newsletter offer or any modifications being made to the technical situation. The personal data that are obtained in the scope of the newsletter service are not forwarded to third parties. The data subject can cancel the subscription to our newsletter at all times. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has provided us with for the sending of the newsletter can be withdrawn at all times. Each of the newsletters includes a link that can be used to withdraw the consent. It is also possible to cancel the sending of the newsletter direct on the website of the processor or the processor can also be informed of this in another form.
The SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH newsletters include so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is integrated in such emails that are sent in HTML format in order to enable a log file recording and log file analysis to be carried out. This enables a statistical analysis to be performed of the success or lack of success of online marketing campaigns. SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH can use an integrated tracking pixel in order to detect whether an email has been opened by a data subject and if so, when this was carried out in addition to whether the links in the email were used by the data subject.
Personal data that is collected via the tracking pixel in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the processor in order to optimise the sending of the newsletter and adapt the contents of the future newsletters to the interests of the data subject to a better extent. These personal data are not forwarded to third parties. The data subjects are entitled at all times to withdraw the declaration of consent that is provided using the double opt-in procedure in this regard. After a withdrawal has been declared, the processer deletes this personal data. A deregistration from the newsletter is automatically construed by SCHLUMBOHM MedizinLabor-Technologie GmbH as being a withdrawal.
Contact possibility through the website
Conform with legal regulations, the SCHLUMBOHM Medizin-Labor-Technologie GmbH website includes information that provides for a fast electronic contact with our company and for direct communication with us, this also including a general electronic mail address (email address). Should a data subject contact the processor by email or by using a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data that a data subject sends to the processor voluntarily are stored for a processing purpose or for the purpose of contacting the data subject. These personal data are not forwarded to third parties.

Web analysis using Google (Universal) Analytics
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods for example that enable an analysis to be conducted of your use of the website, an example being the use of so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored on your computer. The information that is generated regarding your use of this website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. The activation of the IP anonymization on this website results in the IP address being abbreviated before it is transferred within European Union member states or to another contracting European Economic Area state. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA in exceptional cases, it then being abbreviated there.

This information (including your IP address) is transferred by your browser direct to a Facebook server in the USA where it is stored. Should you interact with the plug-ins, e.g. click on the “Like“ button, the corresponding information is also transferred to a Facebook server direct, where it is stored. The information is also published by Facebook and shown to your contacts there.

Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 para. 1 letter a) GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations with which we obtain consent to a certain processing purpose. Should the processing of personal data be necessary in order to fulfil a contract when the data subject is one of the parties to the contract, this being the case for example should this be necessary for a supply of merchandise or the provision of another service or counter-performance, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter b) GDPR. This also has validity for such processing operations that are necessary in order to implement pre-contractual measures such as queries being made with regard to our products or services. Should our company be subject to a legal obligation that necessitates a processing of personal data, an example for this being for the fulfilment of fiscal obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter c) GDPR. In seldom cases, the processing of personal data could be necessary in order to prevent vital interests of the data subject or another natural entity. An example for this would be if a visitor to our company should suffer an injury on our premises so that his name, his age, his health insurance data or other vital information need to be forwarded to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would be based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter d) GDPR in this case. Last but not least, processing operations could also be based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR. This legal basis forms the basis for processing operations that are not included in any of the aforementioned legal bases and the processing is necessary in order to safeguard a justified interest of our company or a third party, in as far as the interests, constitutional rights and constitutional freedoms of the data subject do not have priority. We are especially permitted to implement such processing operations as special reference has been made to these by the European legislator. It is in this regard of the opinion that a justified interest could be assumed should the data subject be a customer of the controller (recital 47, 2nd sentence GDPR).
A justified interest in the processing that is pursued by the controller or a third party
Should the processing of personal data be based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR, our justified interest is the conducting of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all of our employees and our shareholders.
