Use and Processing of Personal Data
Personal data include information about your person such as your name, company or e-mail 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 (e-mail 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.
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.
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 email@example.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.

1. Content of Online Provision
The author does not guarantee the timeliness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information given. Liability claims against the author relating to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of information given, or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, is excluded in principle insofar as there is no proof of intentional or gross negligence on the side of the author. All offers are subject to confirmation and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to alter, amend or cancel part of the pages of the whole provision without special notification, or to discontinue publication temporarily or permanently.
2. References and Links
TIn the case of direct or indirect links to foreign Internet sites (links) which lie outside the author’s area of responsibility, a liability obligation would only apply in cases where the author has knowledge of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in the event of unlawful content. The author expressly declares herewith that, at the time the link was established no illegal content was noticeable on the sites to be linked. The author has no influence whatsoever on present and future design, content or authorship of the linked/associated sites. He therefore distances himself herewith from all content of all linked/associated sites that have been changed after the link was established. This applies to all links and references established within his own Internet provision, as well as to foreign entries in visitors’ books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Only the provider of the site to which reference was made, and not the site which simply refers to links in the respective publication, will be liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damages arising from the use or non-use of such information given.
3. Copyright and Licence Rightst
In all publications the author has tried to observe copyright of the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts produced by himself or to revert to unlicensed graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All brands and trademarks that are named and, the case arising, protected by a third party within the Internet provision, are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable licence right and the right of possession of the respective owner. It cannot be inferred solely on the basis of mere naming that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties! Copyright for published objects produced by the author himself remains solely with the author of the sites. The copying or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and text in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.
4. Legal Effectiveness of this Exclusion of Liability
This exclusion of liability is to be regarded as part of the Internet provision referred to on this site. Insofar as part or individual elements of the wording of this text does not comply, no longer complies, or does not completely comply with the legal situation, the remaining part of the document shall remain unaffected by this in terms of content and applicability.
