You have the right to object to this analysis and we will inform you below about how you can exercise your rights to object.
2. General and mandatory information
Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.
You can contact us via Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
The responsible party is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (names, email addresses, etc.).
Objecting to advertising mails
We hereby prohibit the use of the contact data in our imprint, data we are obliged to provide for an imprint, for the purpose of sending us any advertising or informational materials that we have not expressly requested. The operator of this site reserves the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertisements, e.g. spam emails.
Information on protective rights - Rights to information, rectification, restricted processing of data (blocking), deletion
Within the scope of current statutory data protection regulations, you have the right, at any time, to free-of-charge information regarding your saved personal data, its source, recipients and purpose of processing, and if need be, a right to request the rectification, restricted processing (blocking) or deletion of your personal data.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive data, which we process by automated means based on your consent or the fulfilment of contractual obligations, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Further, you have the right to transmit those data to a third party. If you request the direct transmission of your data to another party, this will be carried out where technically feasible.
Right to object
You may object, at any time, and
with effect for the future, to the use and processing of your data, which our institution may have a legitimate interest in, such as for marketing and providing customer-oriented information and
services. If you wish to object to this use, it suffices to send an informal message or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Withdrawal of consent to data processing
Many data processing procedures are only permitted if you provide explicit consent. You may, at any time, withdraw consent you have already given by sending us an informal e-mail. The legality of data processed before your request to withdraw consent shall remain unaffected.
Transmitting your data to a country outside the EU/EEA
As a rule, your personal data will be processed within Germany, the EU or the European Economic Area. All of these countries have a high and consistent level of data protection on account of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, which ensures that your data will be extensively protected. Data may only be transmitted to recipients outside of the EU under one of the following conditions:
The European Commission has determined that the country offers an appropriate level of statutory data protection, or, when this is not the case,
SilaMed and the medical partners agree upon contractual data protection clauses which have been adopted or approved by the European Commission or the competent supervisory authority.
However, sometimes your data might also need to be passed to partners in third countries who have not fulfilled either of these conditions. These countries potentially have a lower level of data protection than the EU. The partner clinics of SilaMed guarantee that, even in such cases, the partners will be contractually bound (if legally possible) to adhere to the EU’s level of data protection. However, the risk remains that state or private agencies may access the data even when this would not be permissible under European data protection law. Furthermore, your data subject rights in these countries may be weaker or more difficult to enforce, and there may not be an independent supervisory authority to support you in exercising your rights. In such cases, your data will only be transferred with your express permission.
3. Data collection on our website
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:
Time stamp of access
Transmitted data volume and the duration of the transmission
Name and version of the browser software
These data will not be combined with data from other sources. The basis for data processing is article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows the party responsible to protect its legitimate interests. The server-log-file is saved for 90 days.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter into the contact form only with your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The legality of data processed before your request to withdraw consent shall remain unaffected.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer applies (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected.

You may, at any time, withdraw consent you have already given by sending us an informal e-mail. The legality of data processed before your request to withdraw consent shall remain unaffected.
