Furthermore, this information is analysed to increase data protection and data security and to ensure the protection of the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the log files are stored separately from the personal data provided by the person concerned.

 

6.       Registration on our website

The person concerned has the possibility to register on our website by providing personal data. The personal data that is sent to the responsible person is derived from the respective input mask, which is used for the registration. The personal data entered by the concerned person are collected and stored exclusively for registration. The querying of the valid pharmacy operating license and the proof of purchase of narcotics (BTM) serves as proof of the authorisation to purchase certain pharmacy-only products and is required as proof of legitimacy. To ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal data recorded by pharma mall online, the ordering process is secured by pharma mall using SSL encryption. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a protocol to enable secure data transmission over the Internet. The controller may arrange for the transfer to one or more processors who also use the personal data solely for internal use. This use is attributable to the person responsible.

The registration of the concerned person with the voluntary provision of personal data serves the controller to offer the concerned person, content or services that are only offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change their personal data given during registration at any time or to delete it completely from our database

In the legal framework, we provide information to any interested party on request at any time about which personal data of the person concerned is stored. Furthermore, the responsible person corrects or deletes personal data at the request or notice of the person concerned, insofar as this does not conflict with any statutory storage requirements.

The data protection officer and all employees from our company are available to the person concerned in this context as a contact person.

The pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers and news from the company. Our company newsletter can only be received by the person concerned if the person concerned has a valid e?mail address and has registered to receive the newsletter. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address registered for the first time by the person concerned used for receiving the newsletter to check whether the holder of the email address corresponds with the person concerned and the holder of the email has allowed the newsletter to be received.

When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration.

Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by email about changes to the newsletter offer or the technical conditions.

A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. On the basis of the embedded tracking pixel, the pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH can recognise whether and when an email was opened by the concerned person and which of the links in the email were accessed by the concerned person.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters will be stored and evaluated by the controller to optimise the delivery of newsletters and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the concerned person. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Affected persons are at any time entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent made via the double-opt-in procedure.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

In the event of an objection, pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH will no longer process personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection, which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves the purpose of assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If the pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH processes personal data to operate direct advertising, then the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, as far as it is associated with such direct advertising. If the person concerned objects to the processing of the pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH for direct advertising purposes, the pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the person concerned has the right, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data, which is performed by the pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a task in the public interest.

To exercise the right to object, the person concerned may directly contact the data protection officer from the pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH or another employee. The person concerned is also free, in the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58 / EC, to exercise its right of objection by means of automated procedures where technical specifications are used.

12.8.   Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on them or similarly significantly affects them, unless the decision is taken for the purpose of the conclusion or the performance of a contract between the person concerned and the person responsible, is required, or permitted by law to which the person responsible is subject, and that such legislation contains or expressly agrees with reasonable safeguards to protect the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the person concerned.

If the decision to conclude or fulfil a contract between the person concerned and the person responsible is necessary or if the person concerned expressly agrees, the pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH will take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the person concerned which includes, at the very least, the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the person responsible, to express one's own position and to contest the decision.

If the person concerned wishes to assert rights with regard to automated decisions, he can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the person in charge.

12.9.   Right to revoke a data protection consent

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

If the person concerned wishes to assert his right to revoke consent, he can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the person in charge at any time.

 

13.    Data protection in applications and in the application process

The person responsible collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedures. The processing can also be done electronically.

This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to the person responsible by electronic means, for example by email or via a web form located on the website. If the person responsible concludes a contract of employment with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of executing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no contract of employment with the applicant is concluded by the person responsible, the application documents will be automatically deleted three months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not prejudice any other legitimate interests of the person responsible. Other legitimate interest in this sense, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

 

14.    Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 para. 1 a DSGVO serves the pharma mall Gesellschaft für Electronic Commerce GmbH as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract of which the party is concerned, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, then processing will be based on Art 6 para. 1 b DSGVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and their name, age, health insurance or other information relevant to their protection would then have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

 

On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly permitted because they have been specifically mentioned by the legislator (recital 47, second sentence, DSGVO).

 

15.    Authorized interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

 

16.    Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfil the contract or to initiate a contract.

 

17.    Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data

We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. At the conclusion of a contract the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data. If the person concerned does not provide their personal data, a contract cannot be concluded with the person concerned. Before the personal data is provided by the person concerned, the person concerned can refer to our data protection officer.

Our data protection officer will inform the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, if there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequence would be of the failure to provide the personal data.

 

18.    Existence of automated decision-making

Our company renounces the automatic decision-making or profiling.
