Area of application
This “Declaration on Data Handling and Data Protection” applies to your participation and the use of all our websites. Our websites contain links to websites in other countries that refer to our cooperating partners or products. For these websites intentionally linked to, this “Declaration on Data Handling and Data Protection” also applies. To all other websites this declaration does not apply.
Personal data concerns information about the personal and factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural individual. In this sense, for example, your name, your address, your bank account, passport or phone numbers, your e-Mail address or IP number are deemed to be personal data.
By contrast, data which cannot be used to ascertain your actual identity is not deemed to be personal. This includes, for example, information about your gender, which browser you use or which writing system you prefer.
Purpose of gathering, processing or using personal data
We only use personal data provided by you for the stated or agreed purposes.
Withdrawal of consent
You have the opportunity at all times to withdraw your consent to the agreed use of your personal data in the future. To do this, please contact our responsible Data Controller under the contact details mentioned above.
Other gathering, processing or use of personal data / Contact Form
We only gather, process or use your personal data if you make it available to us of your own free will and this is legally permitted or you have agreed to it. This also already applies if you submit to us the Contact Form on our websites especially comprising your contact details as set out there. By submitting this Contact Form and by confirming this on the bottom of the Contact Form, you expressly give permission for your personal details to be electronically stored for further company purposes as set out in this “Declaration On Data Handling and Data Protection”.
With regard to our free sebamed quarterly newsletter as mentioned on our Contact Form you further agree that your contact details are automatically added to our company’s mailing list. After sending your details, you will receive an e-Mail with a link for you to click on so that you can confirm your details. Your details will only be added to the mailing list once you have confirmed your subscription.

Automatic gathering, processing and use of personal data
Each time you visit www.sebamed.com or any other of our websites we automatically gather information about which IP number is assigned to your computers, which browser and which operating system you use, and which websites you have viewed. This data is stored in log files on the Web server. Of this data, only the IP number comprises personal data. To prevent misuse of our computer systems it is necessary to store the IP number of each visitor for a temporary period. If in addition we refer to the log files in order to generate usage profiles, whether for the purposes of advertising, market research, or to design our websites according to requirement, the IP numbers are rendered anonymously in advance. Otherwise the IP numbers are deleted from the log files. As a result you therefore remain anonymous even when your IP number is gathered and stored temporarily.
Our websites use a German web analytics service to have the websites analysed how users use the site. The information generated about your use of the initial website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored on servers in Germany. This information will be used for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. We may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on our web analytics services behalf. Your IP-address will not be associated with any other data held by us or our web analytics service. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
Use of personal data for advertising purposes or for market research
In order to nurture our relationship with you as participant we are occasionally interested in using your personal data for advertising, market research or other purposes. Naturally, we will inform you of this in advance and ask you for your express consent.
Passing on, selling or transmitting personal data to third parties
We will not pass on, sell, or transmit your personal data in any other way to a third party unless this is necessary for achieving the stated and/or agreed purposes or you have expressly consented to it. In case that we pass on, sell or transmit any data to a country outside the EU we will always try to ensure, that the major principles of data protection and data handling of the EU are observed.
We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-Mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.
The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.
On www.sebamed.com or on our other websites we generally use what are known as session cookies, which store data for the technical control of your session in the memory of your browser. This data is not personal and is deleted at the latest when you close your browser. If, as an exception, we should also want to store personal data in a cookie, we will obtain your express consent to do so in advance.
On sebamed.com and on our other websites we undertake the technical and organisational precautions necessary to protect your personal data against loss and misuse. This means that your data is stored in a safe operating environment which is not accessible to the public. In certain cases your personal data is encrypted during transmission by what is known as Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL). This further means that your computer communicates with the sebamed servers by using a recognised encryption procedure, whose current version is deemed secure. If your browser supports SSL, the transmission of personal data is protected by this function. In this case most browsers show you whether the security protocol is supported by means of a dialogue window or an icon. You will find further information through your browser’s help function. If you should wish to contact sebamed.com by e-Mail we wish to point out that the confidentiality of the transmitted information is not guaranteed. The contents of e-Mails can be intercepted by third parties.
