6. Storage of personal data with informational use
(1) For the use of our website that is purely for informational purposes, i.e. when you do not log in or register to use the website or transfer information to us in any other way, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data listed in 5.2, which your browser transmits to make it technically possible to visit the website.
(2) When you use our website “cookies” are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive and are assigned to the browser you are using, which provide certain information to the body that sets the cookie (in this case, us). Cookies cannot run programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They serve only to help the Internet offer more user-friendly and effective experiences overall.
– Transient cookies (temporary)
– Persistent cookies (time-limited)
– Third-party cookies (from third parties)
– Flash cookies (permanent)
b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. These include session cookies in particular, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This will allow your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
d) You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes. You may decline the acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all of the features of this website.

7. Use of the features of our website
(1) Our website offers only its use for informational purposes.
8. Liability for content
The content on these pages was created with great care. However, we cannot make any warranties about the completeness or currentness of the content. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on this website under general law pursuant to Section 7(1) of the German Broadcast Media Act [TMG]. However, pursuant to Sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, we are not required as service providers to monitor information provided or stored by third parties or to investigate circumstances that suggest any unlawful activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under general law remain unaffected. Any liability in this respect, however, is only possible from the moment that knowledge of the specific violation of law is obtained. Upon notification of such violations, we will remove the content immediately.
9. Liability for links
Our web pages contain links to external third-party websites, over the content of which we have no control. We are therefore unable to accept any liability for the third-party content. The respective provider or operator of the linked pages is always responsible for their content. The linked pages were checked for possible violations of the law at the time the links were created. No unlawful content was identified at the time the links were created. Permanent monitoring of the content of linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. Upon notification of violations, we will remove the links in question immediately.
10. Data security
We safeguard our website and other systems by employing appropriate technical and administrative measures against the loss, destruction, access, alteration or dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. But despite regular monitoring, complete protection against all threats is not possible.
Our website uses the industry standard SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption. This ensures the confidentiality of your personal information over the Internet. You can tell if a transmission is encrypted by the closed lock symbol in your browser’s address bar.
11. Sharing of data
We will share your personal data with third parties only
- if you have expressly consented to this pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1)(a) GDPR;
- if the data are being shared to fulfil contractual obligations pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR;
- if we are legally required to share the data within the meaning of point (c) of Article 6(1) GDPR;
- if sharing the data is in the public interest within the meaning of point (e) of Article 6(1) GDPR;
- if sharing the data is necessary within the meaning of point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests which require protection of personal data.
12. Data categories
We process the following categories of data: master data (such as company, contact person if appl., address), communications data, contract data, accounts receivable data, if applicable payment and default information. See the above information for more on this.
13. Third-party recipients
In order to satisfactorily handle your issue, we may have to send your personal data to third-party recipients. Third-party recipients may be companies in the Helm Group, Gedeon Richter Group, our suppliers, shipping and logistics partners, trading partners and service providers.
14. Period for storing personal data
Your data will be stored by us as long as needed for the corresponding underlying reasons for the processing. Furthermore, we will store data only if we are legally obligated to do so, e.g. by a records retention requirement under law.
15. Information about the right to object
An objection to the processing of personal data concerning you, on the basis of point (e) of Article 6(1) (data product in the public interest) or of point (f) (data processing to safeguard legitimate interests on the basis of the weighing the interests) is possible at any time pursuant to Article 21 GDPR. If there is an objection, the personal data will no longer be processed unless compelling legitimate grounds for the processing have been demonstrated which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Please direct your objection to the email address email@example.com.
16. Information about the right to withdraw consent
If you have given us consent to process personal data, you can withdraw this consent at any time. Naturally, this also applies to consent given to us before 25 May 2018 (before the GDPR went into force). The withdrawal of consent is valid only the future. The legality of the processing is not removed by a withdrawal of consent. Please direct your withdrawal of consent by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This data protection statement is dated 25 May 2018. It is the current, valid version of our data protection statement. Please note, however, that it may become necessary to revise this data protection policy from time to time due to actual or statutory changes.
