Privacy policy

Thank you very much for your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high value for the management of the practice Dr. med. Martin Böhringer. A use of the Internet pages of the practice Dr. med. Martin Böhringer is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned. The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the practice of Dr. Martin Böhringer. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration will inform the persons concerned about their rights. Martin Böhringer has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone.

3. Cookies

The internet pages of the practice Dr. med. Martin Böhringer use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser. Numerous Internet pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID. By using cookies, Praxis Dr. med. Martin Böhringer can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies. By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie. The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable under certain circumstances.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the practice Dr. med. Martin Böhringer collects a number of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a person concerned or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server.
The following can be recorded
    - browser types and versions used,
    - the operating system used by the accessing system,
    - the Internet page from which an accessing system accesses our Internet page (so-called referrer),
    - the subwebsites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
    - the date and time of access to the website,
    - an Internet protocol address (IP address),
    - the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
    - other similar data and information used to avert dangers in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, the practice Dr. med. Martin Böhringer does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned.
Rather, this information is needed in order to
    - deliver the contents of our website correctly,
    - to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
    - to ensure the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and
    - provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.
This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by the practice of Dr. med. Martin Böhringer both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by the person concerned.

5. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or where provided for by the European directive and regulation maker or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject. If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulation giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data shall be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

6. Rights of the data subject

    a) Right to confirmation

    Every data subject shall have the right, granted by the European directive and regulation maker, to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether personal data relating to him or her are being processed.

    b) Right of access

    Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation Body to obtain at any time from the controller, free of charge, information about the personal data relating to him or her stored and a copy of this information. In addition, the European Directive and Regulation Body has granted the data subject access to the following information:

    • - the purposes of processing
    • - the categories of personal data to be processed
    • - the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular for recipients in third countries or for international organisations
    • - where possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if that is not possible, the criteria for determining that duration
    • - the existence of a right of rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning them or of limitation of the processing by the controller or of a right of objection to such processing
    • - the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority
    • - if the personal data are not collected from the data subject: All available information on the origin of the data

    Furthermore, the data subject has a right of access to information on whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.

    If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

    c) Right of rectification

    Every data subject to the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation to demand the immediate rectification of incorrect personal data concerning him. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, taking into account the purposes of the processing, also by means of a supplementary declaration. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller for this purpose.

    d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

    Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Governments, to require the data controller to delete the personal data concerning him immediately, if one of the following reasons applies and if the processing is not necessary:


    • - The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
    • - The data subject shall revoke the consent on which the processing was based in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DS-GVO or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DS-GVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
    • - The data subject shall object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 DS-GVO and there shall be no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or the data subject shall submit a request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DS-GVO or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DS-GVO.

    7. Privacy policy on the use and enjoyment of Facebook

    The data controller has integrated Facebook components on this website. Facebook is a social network. A social network is a social meeting point operated on the Internet, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests. The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The person responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland if a person concerned lives outside the USA or Canada. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned. If the person concerned is logged on to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of the person's stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data. Facebook receives information through the Facebook component that the individual concerned has visited our website whenever the individual concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time as accessing our website, whether or not the individual clicks on the Facebook component. If the data subject does not want this information to be transferred to Facebook in this way, he or she can prevent the transfer by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website. Facebook's published data policy, which is available at, provides information about Facebook's collection, processing and use of personal data. It also explains which settings Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

    8. Legal basis of the processing

    Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same shall apply to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our site were injured and his name, age, health insurance information or other vital information would have to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS Block Exemption Regulation).

    9. Legitimate interests in the processing which are pursued by the controller or a third party

    If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

    10. Duration for which the personal data are stored

    The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After this period has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted unless they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

    11. Legal or contractual provisions concerning the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-availability

    We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. The data subject must contact one of our employees before providing personal data. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

The protection of your data is one of the most important principles of Betty24 GmbH. Its data protection declaration will inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data within its online offer and the associated websites, functions and contents as well as external online presences, such as social media profiles.
