General Principles
a)    Who receives my data?
Within W1 Anaesthesia, those that need your data to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations will receive access to it.

Processors used by us may also receive data for these purposes. These are companies in the categories of IT services, telecommunications, and marketing. Where we use processors to provide our services, we take appropriate legal precautions and corresponding technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the relevant legal provisions.

Data is only passed on to third parties within the framework of legal requirements.

As far as necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which also includes, for example, the initiation and execution of a contract.

The retention and documentation periods specified there are two to 6 years.

c)    How do we secure your data? 
Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of content or contact requests that you send to us. We have also implemented numerous security measures (“technical and organisational measures”) for example encryption or need to know access, to ensure the most complete protection of Personal Data processed through this website. 

Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. And databases or data sets that include Personal Data may be breached inadvertently or through wrongful intrusion. Upon becoming aware of a data breach, we will notify all affected individuals whose Personal Data may have been compromised as expeditiously as possible after which the breach was discovered.

We may transfer your Personal Data to other companies and/or staff members as necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

We do not request Personal Data from minors and children and do not knowingly collect such data or pass it on to third parties.
