We have carefully selected, checked and contracted these service providers (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f and Art. 28 Paragraph 1 GDPR).

If it is necessary to investigate illegal or improper use of the app or for legal prosecution, personal data will be passed on to the law enforcement authorities or other authorities and, if necessary, to harmed third parties or legal representatives.

The data will then be stored longer if it is necessary for criminal prosecution or to secure, assert or enforce legal claims. Other legal requirements for the storage and deletion of personal data (e.g. tax reasons) are reserved.

This does not apply to data whose erasure would involve disproportionate effort. In cases like these, B. Braun is deemed to have a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6(1) (f) GDPR in storing your data.

You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing as well as the right to correct, block, restrict or delete this data at any time.

You can also revoke any consent you have given to the processing and use of your data, which is not required due to an overriding statutory provision or directly for the processing of an existing contractual relationship.

In order to exercise these rights and for further questions on the subject of "personal data", please contact the responsible person in writing (by post) or by e-mail (section 2). On request, we will inform you in writing, in accordance with applicable law, whether and which personal data we have stored about you.

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data. With regard to the right of objection, the provisions of the DSG (Art. 12 Para. 2 lit. b DSG) or the GDPR (Art. 21 GDPR apply, depending on the applicable law.
