The following notes provide a simple overview about how we handle your personal data when you visit the Hemovent website.
This data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator found within the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
We use the following terms in this data protection declaration, among others:
- Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
- Data subject
The ‘Data subject’ is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing refers to any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure, or destruction
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her. Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
- Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
- Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
3. DATA COLLECTION
- Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
The processing of personal data on this website is carried out by Hemovent GmbH.
- How do we collect your data?
We collect personal information you provide to us upon registration, when you request or purchase services, register with us, or otherwise interact with us using one or more devices. You may provide information in a variety of ways.
We also collect non-personal information through a variety of technologies, including when you visit our sites and applications. This data is automatically transmitted to our server by your browser (e.g. browser type/browser version, operating system used, referrer URL, pages called up, length of visit, IP address, date and time of enquiry) and they are necessary in order to display our website to you.
- Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of personal data when consent is required. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
Generally, our website pursues to inform the website visitors about the services offered by our company. We process your data in order to display the information you require. This is a legitimate interest (Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR) of our company.
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). We reserve the right to examine this data in retrospect, if we become aware that it has been used for unlawful purposes.

- Storage Period
Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for which the data is processed ceases to apply.
Your data will be blocked or deleted after the processing purpose has ceased. If, in addition, legal obligations for storage exist (e.g. tax or commercial law retention periods), we block or delete your data at the end of the legal storage periods.

- The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
- Right to data portability
