Modern information and communications technologies are playing an ever-increasing role in the activities of organisations such as Eppendorf. That is why we take the protection of your privacy, together with the personal data that you provide us with, very seriously. It goes without saying that we comply with the stipulations of the Federal Data Protection Law. In the paragraphs below we specify the data that we, i. e. Eppendorf and its subsidiaries, gather if necessary and explain how we treat such data.
Which personal data are gathered and processed?You can visit our websites without having to provide us with any personal data. We are using only the name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us and the website of ours that you are visiting. Personal data are gathered and processed only if you use particular services. The menu will notify you of this in detail.
For what purposes do we gather and process personal data?
Since we are constantly endeavouring to achieve a continuous process of improvement in both our service offerings and your own experience with our websites, we conduct statistical analyses of the above-mentioned general data. To do this, however, we also need to be aware of your own personal opinions and your environment. That is why you will be asked to provide additional information at several points. The information in question is voluntary and will, of course, be treated confidentially.
Are personal data forwarded to third parties?
We will forward your personal data to third parties only as far as is absolutely necessary for the rendering of the requested service. Beyond that we will neither disclose, permit the use of, sell or otherwise market your personal data to other companies or institutions without receiving an express declaration of consent from you. Other conditions shall apply if we are obliged by the law or a court judgment to disclose and communicate the data.
Personal data pertaining to children are not knowingly gathered or used in any way. We are not generally aware of the age of the users of our websites. We have, however, taken no specific steps to give special protection to such data.Security
We have taken technical and organisational steps to protect the personal data which you provided against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All of our employees and third parties who are involved in data processing are obliged to observe the Federal Data Protection Law and the confidential treatment of personal data.
