Usage of the online shop
If you use our online shop and place an order, we shall process your personal data that are necessary in order to handle your order and to provide customer service (name, address, email address, order data, payment data, customer number, date of birth, telephone number, IP address) along with any data that you voluntarily provide to us. If you place an order with us, we must e.g. ask you for your name, your email address and the shipping address. These data are required by us for the purpose of order and payment handling and are processed in this context (legal basis: Article 6(1)(b) GDPR). This enables us to handle your order promptly and in an optimum manner.
In some cases we are under a legal obligation to process personal data. A typical example is the processing within the scope of the so-called pharmacovigilance, i.e. the obligation to investigate and share data when potential side effects of drugs become known. Where required, we can also use your data to enforce our or third party rights (such as copyright infringements).
We use browsing data of our users for creating aggregated statistics (so that statistics do not show data about a single user but only about the collected data of a number of users), to learn what is of interest to users in order to improve our websites and offering. We also use the browsing data for maintaining or restoring the security of our offer or to detect and correct technical defects and errors. We also collect data about the location of the devices accessing our website for statistical purposes (statistics from where visitors access our website, etc.); you can control the authorization for this using the browser settings.
Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") from social networks (e.g. Facebook). Plugins are used to share content from our website with other users of social networks or to point out such content. When you access an internet page with a social media plugin, a direct connection is established with the server of the social media provider. The social media providers record the website from which you access their services. If you are registered with one of the providers and have logged in, you can be connected to your user account by accessing the website. We have no knowledge of the content, scope and use of the data collected by the providers. Further information can be found in the data protection regulations of the social media providers.

This includes the transmission of your IP address, but it will not be merged with other Google data. In addition, it is shortened (usually within the European Union) and saved by Google only in an abridged form. For storage in the United States, Google's self-certification according to the Privacy Shield provides an appropriate level of data protection. You can object to the processing of your data for these purposes by installing a browser plugin (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

If we become aware of potential cases of adverse reactions to one of our products, we are required by law to document and share the relevant information, including personal information with authorities worldwide and, where necessary for further assessment, to contact the reporting parties. In order to enforce our rights or to protect our rights or the rights of third parties with the holders of such rights, consultants and authorities.
We store data for as long as necessary for the provision of the service requested by you. For example, when you subscribe to a newsletter we will store the associated data at least until you unsubscribe. Data without any personal identifiable information may be stored permanently.
You can request information about the data stored about you and have the right to receive the data provided by you in a common and machine-readable format. Furthermore, in justified cases, you may also request the deletion, correction or limitation of the processing of your data. If your personal data is transferred to a country outside the EU which does not provide appropriate protection, you can request a copy of the contract that implements the appropriate protection of personal data.
Furthermore, in justified cases you can object to the processing of personal data concerning you where we process your personal data based on our legitimate interest (this is the case if the legal basis is Art. 6 f) GDPR as indicated in the footnotes). This applies in particular to the collection of your data for statistical measurement of the web audience by Google Analytics.
