We process personal data in order to inform you about events within the scope of our business activities and to carry out the event. This data is collected and processed:

  • on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, insofar as you have given us your consent to the processing of personal data for the purpose of holding and participating in a MedPayRx event,

  • for legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. A legitimate interest on our part exists if you have already participated in events on the topics offered by us and have shown a general interest in the events or fields of activity of MedPayRx.

Google Analytics

  • This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; „Google“). The use includes the mode “Universal Analytics“. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across several devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze the activities of a user across all devices.
  • Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it will be shortened. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 Abs. 3 TMG or Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or at https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.
  • You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the Browser-Add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting your data across multiple devices, you must opt-out on all systems you use. If you click here, the opt-out cookie will be set: Disable Google Analytics

Mailchimp

The newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in the context of this notice, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. The data may be processed in the USA using the European-American Privacy Shields. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. MailChimp may also use this information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimization of the dispatch and display of newsletters or for commercial purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them or pass them on to third parties.

MailChimp’s privacy policy can be found here:https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy

Statistical survey and analysis

The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are first collected. This information is used to technically improve the services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or access times.

The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor MailChimp’s aim to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users. We therefore process the data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. I lit. f DSGVO.
