1.2 The controller of the data processing on this website within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is Noahklinik GmbH, Kurfürstenstraße 10-12, 34117 Kassel, Germany, Tel.: +49 561 81 04 94 0, Fax: +49 561 81 04 94 9, E-Mail: info@noahklinik.de. The controller of personal data is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

2) Data collection when visiting our website

2.1 During the mere informational use of our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to the page server (so-called "server log files"). When you call up our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display the website to you:

  • Our visited website
  • Date and time at the time of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you reached the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used (if applicable: in anonymised form)

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. The data is not passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

2.2 This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of personal data and other confidential content (e.g. orders or enquiries to the person responsible). You can recognise an encrypted connection by the string "https://" and the lock symbol in your browser line.

3) Contacting

3.1 WhatsApp Business

We offer visitors to our website the possibility to contact us via the messaging service WhatsApp of WhatsApp Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. For this purpose, we use the so-called "business version" of WhatsApp.

If you contact us via WhatsApp on the occasion of a specific transaction (for example, an order placed), we store and use the mobile phone number you use on WhatsApp as well as - if provided - your first and last name in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO to process and respond to your request. On the basis of the same legal basis, we may ask you to provide further data (order number, customer number, address or email address) via WhatsApp in order to be able to assign your request to a specific process.

If you use our WhatsApp contact for general enquiries (e.g. about the range of services, availability or our website), we store and use the mobile phone number you use on WhatsApp and - if provided - your first name and surname in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in providing the requested information efficiently and promptly.

Your data will only be used to respond to your request via WhatsApp. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.

Please note that WhatsApp Business obtains access to the address book of the mobile device we use for this purpose and automatically transfers telephone numbers stored in the address book to a server of the parent company Meta Platforms Inc. in the USA. For the operation of our WhatsApp Business account, we use a mobile end device in whose address book only the WhatsApp contact data of those users who have also contacted us via WhatsApp are stored.

This ensures that every person whose WhatsApp contact data is stored in our address book has already consented to the transmission of their WhatsApp telephone number from the address books of their chat contacts in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO when using the app on their device for the first time by accepting the WhatsApp terms of use. A transmission of data of such users who do not use WhatsApp and/or have not contacted us via WhatsApp is excluded in this respect.

For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by WhatsApp, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to WhatsApp's privacy policy: https://www.whatsapp.com/legal/?eea=1#privacy-policy

In the course of the above-mentioned processing, data may be transferred to servers of Meta Platforms Inc. in the USA.

For data transfers to the USA, the provider has signed up to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, which ensures compliance with the European level of data protection on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission.

3.2 Personal data is collected when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Which data is collected in the case of the use of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration.

The legal basis for processing this data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. Your data will be deleted after your request has been processed. This is the case when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.

4) Web analytics services

Matomo

This website uses a web analytics service provided by the following provider: InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, ("Matomo").

Zum Schutz der Seitenbesucher verwendet Matomo eine sog. "config_id", um verschiedene Analysen der Seitennutzung innerhalb eines kurzen Zeitfensters von bis zu 24 Stunden zu ermöglichen. Die "config_id" des Seiten ist ein zufällig gesetzter, zeitlich begrenzter Hash einer begrenzten Menge von Einstellungen und Attributen des Besuchers. Die config_id oder der config-Hash ist eine Zeichenkette, die für einen Besucher auf der Grundlage seines Betriebssystems, seines Browsers, seiner Browser-Plugins, seiner IP-Adresse und seiner Browsersprache berechnet wird. Matomo verwendet kein Device Fingerprinting und verwendet für die Erstellung der "config_id" eine anonymisierte IP-Adresse des Seitenbesuchers.

If the information processed in this way includes personal user data, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes. To object to data processing of your visitor data for the future, we provide you with a separate objection option on our website.

If data collected using Matomo technology (including your pseudonymised IP address) is transferred to Matomo servers in New Zealand and processed for usage analysis purposes, we hereby inform you that the European Commission has issued a so-called adequacy decision for New Zealand, which certifies compliance with European data protection standards for international data transfers.

Insofar as data is also transferred to servers of the provider and the web analytics service has not been installed locally on our server, we have concluded an order processing agreement with the provider, which ensures the protection of our site visitors' data and prohibits unauthorised disclosure to third parties.

5) Page functionalities

5.1 Youtube

This website uses plugins for the display and playback of videos from the following provider: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

Data may also be transmitted to: Google LLC., USA

When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the provider's servers in order to load the plugin. In this process, certain information, including your IP address, is transmitted to the provider.

If the playback of embedded videos is started via the plugin, the provider also uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour, create playback statistics and prevent abusive behaviour.

If you are logged into a user account with the provider during your visit to the site, your data will be directly assigned to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want this to be assigned to your account, you must log out before clicking the play button.

All of the aforementioned processing, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, only takes place if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service via the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

For data transfers to the USA, the provider has joined the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, which ensures compliance with the European level of data protection on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission.

5.2 Adobe Fonts (Typekit)

This site uses so-called web fonts from the following provider for the uniform display of fonts: Adobe Systems Incorporated, 345 Park Avenue, San Jose, CA 95110-2704, USA.

When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly and establishes a direct connection to the provider's servers. In the process, certain browser information, including your IP address, is transmitted to the provider.

The processing of personal data in the course of establishing a connection with the provider of the fonts is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service via the "cookie consent tool" provided on the website. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

For data transfers to the USA, the provider has joined the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, which ensures compliance with the European level of data protection on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission.

5.3 Google reCAPTCHA

On this website we use the CAPTCHA service of the following provider: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

Data may also be transmitted to: Google LLC, USA. For the visual design of the captcha window, the provider uses "Google Fonts", i.e. fonts loaded from the Internet by Google. No information other than that mentioned above, which is already transmitted to Google via the functionality of ReCaptcha, is processed in this case.

The service checks whether an entry is made by a natural person or abusively by machine and automated processing and blocks spam, DDoS attacks and similar automated malicious access. In order to ensure that an action is performed by a human being and not by an automated bot, the provider collects the IP address of the end device used, recognition data of the browser and operating system type used as well as the date and duration of the visit and transmits these to servers of the provider for evaluation.

The legal basis is our legitimate interest in establishing individual ownership on the Internet and preventing abuse and spam in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider, which ensures the protection of our site visitors' data and prohibits unauthorised disclosure to third parties.

For data transfers to the USA, the provider has joined the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, which ensures compliance with the European level of data protection on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission.

The duration of the storage of personal data is determined on the basis of the respective legal basis, the purpose of processing and - if relevant - additionally on the basis of the respective statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law).

When processing personal data on the basis of explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO, the data concerned will be stored until you revoke your consent.

If there are statutory retention periods for data that is processed within the scope of legal or quasi-legal obligations on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, this data will be routinely deleted after the retention periods have expired, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of the contract and/or there is no justified interest on our part in continuing to store it.

When processing personal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO, this data is stored until you exercise your right to object pursuant to Art. 21(1) DSGVO, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

When processing personal data for the purpose of direct marketing based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, this data will be stored until you exercise your right to object in accordance with Art. 21 (2) DSGVO.

Unless otherwise indicated in the other information in this statement on specific processing situations, stored personal data are otherwise deleted when they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
