We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. For this reason, we naturally always handle your personal data in accordance with statutory data protection regulations. MARTOR KG have appointed an external qualified and trustworthy data protection controller towards this end. The UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co KG has been commissioned to exercise the relevant external duties.

In the text below, our aim is to inform you about the processing of your personal data.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data
As a general principle, you can benefit from our online services without disclosing your identity. If we ask for personal data (such as a name, address or email address) on our website – for example within contact forms or during the subscription or registration process – this is done on a voluntary basis. We use such information for our own business purposes (such as shipping of requested materials/information).

If you have any questions, we offer you the opportunity to contact us using a form provided on the website. There, the data marked as obligatory fields are necessary for allocating and responding to the enquiry. Any further details can be provided voluntarily. Data processing, undertaken in order to facilitate your making contact with us, is carried out in  accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point a of the GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.

The personal data collected by us in connection with use of the contact form are automatically deleted once your request has been processed and following the expiration of the fiscal and commercial law-related retention periods.

You may at any time withdraw consent given in a specific context – for example, in order that we might send you interesting information from our company – without giving reasons and with future effect. To do this, you can use the above contact form or the means mentioned in this email.

This site uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and that help analyse the ways in which the website is used. They will automatically recognise you on your next visit. You can prevent cookies from being installed by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. This can potentially result in your being unable to benefit to the full extent from all offerings.

Every time that the website is accessed, logs are created and processed for statistical purposes; the individual user, however, remains anonymous in this process:

»      Referrer (site from whose link you have arrived at this website)

»      Search terms (where search engines are referrers)

»      The IP address is used to determine the country of origin and the provider

»      Browser, operating system, installed plug-ins and screen resolution

»      Time spent on the pages

The above data are processed by us on the basis of our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point f of the GDPR for the following purposes:

»      ensuring that a smooth connection is established to the website;

»      ensuring that our website is easy to use;

»      evaluating system security and stability (storage period of the relevant data: 7 days); and

»      for other administrative purposes.

We reserve the right to retrospectively check this data if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use. The data are immediately deleted when they are no longer needed for the achievement of the goal and after 24 months at the latest.

Disclosure of data
As a matter of principle, disclosure to third parties, for commercial or non-commercial purposes, will not take place without your express agreement. We pass on your personal data to third parties only when this is legally permissible [such as on the basis of Article 6 of the GDPR] and/or necessary. To some degree, we utilise service providers for legally stipulated commissioned data processing; for example, the website is hosted by Netigo GmbH Düsseldorf and maintained by Netigo GmbH Düsseldorf. In this context, we retain full responsibility for the processing of the data.

Depending on the place where the enquirer is located, our services may be provided locally via our relevant local sales partner. To facilitate this, the data required for the handling of the contact request are passed to the responsible sales partner. Depending on the location of the enquirer, data may also be shared in other countries (including the United States and other countries outside the EU/EEA).

Liability for our own content
The content of these web pages has been prepared with the utmost care. However, we cannot accept any responsibility with regard to whether the content is accurate, complete or up to date. As service providers, we are responsible for our own web page content in accordance with general legislation.

Liability for links (content of external providers)
Our own web page content must be distinguished from cross-references (“links”) to web page content maintained by other providers. We have no influence over such content; the relevant provider or operator is always responsible for the content of the web pages we link to.

Rights of data subjects
We hereby inform you that, as per Articles 15 et seq. of the GDPR, you have, under the conditions specified therein, the right in your dealings with us to information about the applicable personal data and to rectification or erasure or restriction of processing or a right to object to such processing as well as the right to data portability. As per Article 77 of the GDPR, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you is in breach of this regulation. If the processing is based on Article 6, paragraph 1, point a of the GDPR or Article 9, paragraph 2, point a of the GDPR (consent), then you also have the right to withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the legitimacy of the processing that has taken place on the basis of that consent up to the time of withdrawal.

Changes to our data protection conditions
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection policy from time to time so that it fulfils the latest statutory requirements or in order to reflect changes to our services within the data protection policy, such as when introducing new services. Your subsequent website access will then be subject to the new data protection policy.

In case you have any questions with regard to the use and processing of your personal data, you may approach our data protection controller directly, in response to which he and his team can assist you in respect of requests for information, applications or complaints.

Google Analytics
This web site is used by Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc.

This website uses features of the LinkedIn network. The service is provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Each time one of our pages containing LinkedIn features is accessed, your browser establishes a direct connection to the LinkedIn servers. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our web pages from your IP address. If you use the LinkedIn “Recommend” button and are logged in to your LinkedIn account, it is possible for LinkedIn to associate your visit to our website to your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or how it will be used by LinkedIn.

Our website uses plug-ins from the YouTube site, which is operated by Google. The operator of these pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit one of our pages which feature a YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to the YouTube servers. In this process, the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. For more information on how to handle user data, please refer to the YouTube Privacy Policy at: [external page]

Functions of the Twitter service are integrated into our site. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. When you use Twitter and the “Retweet” function, the websites you visit are connected to your Twitter account and made known to other users. In the process, data are also transferred to Twitter.

Our pages use features from Google+. The service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. With the help of the Google+ button, you can publish information worldwide. By means of the Google+ button, you and other users can receive custom content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the fact that you have +1'd a piece of content and also information about the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1 details can be displayed together with your profile name and photo within Google services, for example in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet. Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google + button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used by all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name that you have used to share content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or other identifying information for you. In addition to the above uses, the information you provide is used in accordance with the applicable Google data privacy provisions. Google may publish summary statistics about the +1 activity of users, or share these with users and partners such as publishers, advertisers or affiliate websites.

Facebook ("Like" button)
Our website incorporates what are termed plug-ins (such as the “Like” button) from Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA). When a visit is made to the relevant page on our website, Facebook is informed which of our web pages you have visited with your IP address. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, this will be associated with your personal Facebook account. When using the plug-in features (for instance, by clicking the “Like” button or submitting a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account; this can only be prevented by logging out of your Facebook account before using the plug-in.
