Our handling of your data and your rights
Information pursuant to Articles 13, 14 and 21 General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR

We hereby inform you about the processing of your personal data by us and the claims and rights to which you are entitled under the data protection regulations.
Which data is processed in detail and how it is used depends largely on the products you have purchased from us.

1. Who is responsible for data processing and to whom can I contact?
Responsible authority is:
Healy World GmbH
Potsdamer Platz 1

2. What sources and data do we use?
We process personal data that we have received from you in the course of our business relationship. In addition, to the extent necessary for the provision of our services, we process personal data that we have legitimately received from other sales partners of our products (e.g. for the execution of orders, for the fulfilment of contracts or on the basis of a consent given by you). Relevant personal details are personal data (name, address and other contact data, birthday). In addition, this may also include order data (e.g. order documents), data from the fulfilment of our contractual obligations (e.g. contracts, delivery notes), product data (e.g. purchased devices, modules), advertising and sales data (including advertising scores), data about your use of our offered telemedia (e.g. newsletters) and other data comparable to the categories mentioned.

3. How we process your data (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis
We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

For the fulfilment of contractual obligations (Art.6 para.1 letter b GDPR)

The processing of personal data (Art.4 No.2 GDPR) takes place for the provision and fulfilment of purchase transactions, in particular for the execution of our contracts or pre-contractual measures with you and the execution of your orders as well as all activities required with the operation and administration of a medical device manufacturer.
The purposes of data processing depend primarily on the specific product (e.g. device/system, module) and may include customer data management, customer product management, customer support and customer care.

Within the balancing of interests (Art.6 para.1 letter f GDPR)

If necessary, we process your data beyond the actual performance of the contract to protect legitimate interests of us or third parties. Examples:

  • Advertising or market and opinion research, unless you have objected to the use of your data;
  • Enforcement of legal claims and defence in legal disputes;
  • Measures for business management and further development of services and products.

On the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR)

If you have given us your consent to process personal data for certain purposes (e.g. advertising, information purposes), the legality of this processing is given on the basis of your consent. A given consent can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us prior to the validity of the GDPR, i.e. before 05.25.2018.
Please note that the revocation will only take effect in the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected by this.

On the basis of legal requirements (Art.6 para.1 letter c GDPR) or in the public interest (Art.6 para.1 letter e GDPR)

In addition, as the sales department of a medical device manufacturer, we are subject to various legal obligations, i.e. legal requirements (e.g. Medical Devices Act – MPG).
The purposes of the processing include, among other things, the knowledge and storage of the whereabouts of medical devices and the fulfilment of fiscal control and reporting obligations.

4. Who gets my data?
Within the Healy World GmbH, those departments and employees receive the data they need to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations. Contractors used by us (Art.28 GDPR) may also receive data for these purposes. These are companies in the categories of banking services, IT services, logistics, printing services, telecommunications, debt collection, consulting and sales and marketing.
We may only disclose information about you if required to do so by law, if you have given your consent or if we are authorized to provide such information. Under these conditions, recipients of personal data can be, for example:
Service providers or similar institutions to which we transfer personal data in order to carry out the business relationship with you (depending on the contract: e.g. logisticians).
Other recipients of data may be those bodies for which you have given us your consent to the transfer of data.

5. How long will my data be stored?
If necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which also includes, for example, the initiation and processing of a contract. It should be noted that parts of our business relationship, e.g. our maintenance contract, are long-term debt relationships that are designed for years.
In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations, which result from the German Commercial Code (HGB), the Fiscal Code (AO), the Medical Devices Act (MPG), among others. The periods for storage and documentation specified there range from two to ten years.
Finally, the storage period is also assessed according to the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §§ 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code (BGB) can normally amount to 3 years.

6. Is data transferred to a foreign country or an international organisation?
Data will only be transmitted to third countries (countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA)) if this is necessary or legally required for the execution of your orders. We use computer systems for customer data processing, whose servers are located outside the EEA, in the USA; these use a “privacy shield” and therefore comply with the requirements of the GDPR. We will inform you separately about details, if required by law.

7. What data protection rights do I have?
Any person concerned has the right of access under Article 15 GDPR, the right to correction under Article 16 GDPR, the right to cancellation under Article 17 GDPR, the right to limitation of processing under Article 18 GDPR and the right to data transferability under Article 20 GDPR. The restrictions according to §§ 34 and 35 BDSG apply to the right to information and the right of cancellation. In addition, there is a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Art.77 GDPR in conjunction with § 19 BDSG).

8. Is there an obligation for me to provide data?
In the context of our business relationship you only have to provide that personal data which is necessary for the establishment, execution and termination of a business relationship or which we are legally obliged to collect. Without these data we will usually have to refuse the conclusion of the contract or the execution of the order or we will no longer be able to execute an existing contract and may have to terminate it.

9. To what extent is there automated decision making in individual cases?
Zur Begründung und Durchführung der Geschäftsbeziehung nutzen wir grundsätzlich keine automatisierte Entscheidungsfindung gemäß Art.22 DSGVO. Sollten wir diese Verfahren in Einzelfällen einsetzen, werden wir Sie hierüber gesondert informieren, sofern dies gesetzlich vorgegeben ist.

10. To what extent is my data used for profile development (scoring)?
We process some of your data automatically with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling). For example, we use profiling in the following cases:
In order to be able to inform and advise you specifically about products, we use evaluation instruments. These enable demand-oriented communication and advertising, including market and opinion research.
