Contacting Medical Language Services
This website does not contain a contact form. You can contact me via the email address provided. In this case, I will save the personal data transmitted by e-mail and any file attachments, which in some cases may also contain personal data.
Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified.
It is recommended to encrypt file attachments containing personal data and other documents that are subject to secrecy before sending them, as data transmission on the Internet can have security gaps.
What is your data used for?
All data will be treated confidentially and will only be used to process your request. I will collect, process and store this data in order to respond to your inquiry, to submit a quote and to prepare and execute the services you have requested, as well as for accounting, documentation and, if necessary, data analysis purposes. There is no link to the access data mentioned below.
Your customer data will not be passed on to third parties. However, attachments can be passed on to service providers who support me in fulfilling my services and with whom I have concluded a non-disclosure agreement. I will ask for your separate approval for that in advance.
I secure my website and other systems by technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. Despite regular checks, however, complete protection against all risks is not possible.
This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the “https://” in the address line of the browser and the lock symbol.
Right to information
You have the right to have data which I process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over in a common, machine-readable format.
Right of objection
You can object to the storage of your personal data at any time. All you need to do is send me an informal email. Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Retention period of customer data
The collected customer data will be deleted after the business relationship has ended. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
Right of appeal
In the event of breaches of data protection law, the person concerned has a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues is the Regional Data Protection Officer of the Federal State of Hesse.
