Eurofins Genomics Privacy Policy

This website is provided by Eurofins Genomics GmbH. Based on this privacy policy, we explain when and why we use personal data.

Please note that we adapt our privacy policy to our services taking into consideration any amendments of laws from time to time.

Please follow the link on the website and read this privacy policy from time to time in order to understand such changes.

This privacy policy shall only apply to the website www.eurofinsgenomics.eu of Eurofins Genomics GmbH (imprint). It does not apply to any linked websites.

Please make sure you read the entire privacy policy before you use our website or transmit personal data via our website.


Use and processing of personal data

Personal data include information about your person such as your name, company or email address. Basically, you can visit our website without entering any of your personal data. We do not require any of your data if you merely visit our website. This means you are able to remain anonymous for the purposes of the German Federal Data Protection Act.

If you wish to use certain services we offer, e.g. if you request information, you can choose to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses). You expressly agree that you provide these data on a voluntary basis. In addition, we definitely need your data for shipment or for the provision of news and information to the extent you requested that. Please inform us if you do not wish to receive certain information at a later time.

This means we need your personal data if you make enquiries or requests or wish to use our service. Eurofins Genomics GmbH shall therefore use such data for the following purposes exclusively:

  • answering your requests;
  • providing you with information material;
  • if you use the contractual services offered by Eurofins Genomics GmbH;
  • in order to effect solvency and creditworthiness checks during the customer relationship to the extent admissible, including disclosure of your data to other group mail order and service companies and/or to SCHUFA in Wiesbaden to the extent admissible;
  • for invoicing purposes; or
  • as you agreed.

In the course of the individual forms of contact, you will be informed of the information you are required to provide and of the information you do not need to state.

To the extent admissible and expedient, we shall complement the data with information from other sources in order to improve our offer and to address you more appropriately. At the same time, we are able to determine your preferences and thus adapt the website and services to your specific requirements.

We shall store your data only for the periods required.

By the way, we shall use information that can be collected by means other than online transmission as well, for marketing and market and opinion research purposes to the extent permitted by law.

We effect all data processing procedures, such as collection, processing and use, in compliance with statutory provisions. If we disclose your data to service providers for the purposes of fulfilling our obligations with regard to our legal relationship (contracted data processing), such service providers shall not be deemed to be third parties and shall be contractually bound by the European data protection laws as well as by this privacy policy. Our web server is operated by our contracted data processor in Hamburg, Germany.

Your data shall not be disclosed to third parties unless you gave your consent or unless such disclosure is necessary in order to render our services.

 
Revocation

You shall be entitled to revoke any consent given, at any time, effective for the future. In such case, however, the services to be provided in connection with which such consent given cannot be provided any more.

You are entitled to object to the admissible use of your data for marketing, market and opinion research purposes. Please inform us thereof in writing or send an email to info-eu@eurofins.com. Upon receipt of your letter or email, your address shall be added to a purge list. Such procedure is admissible in accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act.
