Subject of data protection

The subject of data protection is your personal data. This involves all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This covers information, such as name, postal address, email address or telephone number and, where applicable, user data, such as your IP address.

Scope of processing personal data

We only collect and use our users’ personal data if this is necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of our users’ personal data is regularly only done with the users’ consent. An exception is in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and where data processing is permitted by law.

Legal basis for processing personal data

If we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Article 6 Para. 1 Lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for processing personal data.

When processing personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 Para. 1 Lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing required for executing precontractual measures.

If processing personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which Schering Stiftung is subject, Article 6 Para. 1 Lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing personal data necessary, Article 6 Para. 1 Lit d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of Schering Stiftung or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 Para. 1 Lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

Date deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storage ceases to exist. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which Schering Stiftung is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Collection, storage and use of data in detail

Each time the Schering Stiftung website is visited and each time a file is accessed, data about this process is automatically logged and saved as “server log files”. This includes:

  • the IP address used by you
  • the website visited and the link from which you reached the website
  • sites you click on
  • the date, time and length of your visit
  • the volume of data sent in bytes
  • the browser used by you
  • the operating system used by you

Data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. We also use this data to optimise the website and ensure the security of our IT systems.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of its collection (after 7-14 days at the latest). The log files are evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes, personal reference cannot be made. Further processing and evaluation will not take place.

Personal data that you disclose to Schering Stiftung when you visit our website and, for example, order the newsletter, make enquiries to us and use our offers, will be processed by us.
