Furthermore, this information is analyzed to enhance data protection and data security, and to ensure the protection of personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the log files are stored separately from the personal data entered by the persons concerned.

- The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the cardioscan GmbH, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller. The data protection officer of the cardioscan GmbH or another employee will arrange the restriction of the processing.
Right to data portability
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her which have been provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller. Furthermore, when exercising the right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, where this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals. In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact the data protection officer appointed by the cardioscan GmbH or another employee.
Right to object
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to their particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning them carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The cardioscan GmbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. If the cardioscan GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the cardioscan GmbH to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the cardioscan GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes. In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the cardioscan GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest. In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact the Data Protection Officer of the cardioscan GmbH or another employee. The data subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise their right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
Right to withdraw consent under data protection law
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller at any time.
Legal basis of processing
Article 6 (1) a DSGVO serves cardioscan GmbH as the 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 a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other information relevant to protection had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In that case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 para. 1 d DSGVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO. 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 protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the legislator (recital 47 sentence 2 DSGVO).
Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party.
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 (1) f DSGVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
Duration for which the personal data is stored.
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. In order to conclude a contract, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data. If the data subject does not provide his personal data, no contract can be concluded with the data subject. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject may contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the 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 what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
