In accordance with Art. 4 no. 1. of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to only as "GDPR"), "processing" shall mean any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, arrangement, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

3. Log files

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted to us by your Internet browser. These so-called server log files are used to collect, among other things, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you accessed our website (referrer URL), the website(s) of our website that you visit, the date and time of the respective access as well as the IP address of the Internet connection from which the use of our website takes place.

The data collected in this way is stored temporarily, but not together with other data about you. This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

The data is deleted again after 7 days at the latest, insofar as no further storage is required for evidence purposes. Otherwise, the data is exempt from deletion in whole or in part until final clarification of an incident.

4. Video consultation process and processing of health data

In order to provide the functionality of the video consultation between physician and patient, we need to transfer data between the parties participating in the video consultation. In order to maintain patient confidentiality and doctor-patient confidentiality, we use technology here that allows us to transfer data in an end-to-end encrypted format as directly as possible between the participants. This means that the data is encrypted on the patient's terminal device and only decrypted again on the physician's terminal device (and vice versa). The technology used is called WebRTC, and uses AES as the encryption algorithm. This means that no one other than the participants in the video consultation can see this data in plain text (not even samedi as the operator of the platform).

The following data in detail is sent and received via this special end-to-end encryption protected connection:

We do not process or store this data for any other purpose.

The data is processed on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

If it concerns health data, we process your data according to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a)

10. Rights of the users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing described above, users and data subjects have the right to

a) Right of access
You have the right to information about the personal data processed about you, this means that you have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data in question is being processed. To the extent that this is the case, you have the right to access the personal data processed about you and certain additional information, as well as to receive a copy in a commonly used electronic format.

b) Right to rectification
You have the right to have inaccurate personal data concerning you corrected and the right to have incomplete personal data completed.

c) Right to erasure
You have the right to have your personal data deleted, subject to restrictions under applicable law. This is the case, for example, if the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it is processed, you withdraw your consent and there is no other legal ground for the processing, or the processing of your personal data is not necessary for compliance with a legal obligation or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

d) Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to restrict your personal data, for example, if you dispute its accuracy or if you have objected to the processing as described above. In both cases, this right applies while we are processing and reviewing your request.

e) Right to withdraw your consent to data processing.
If you have consented to certain processing, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on the consent prior to its withdrawal.

f) Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

g) Right to object
You have the right to object if the processing is based on the balance of interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. e) or f) DSGVO in order to request a reassessment of interests or to object to direct marketing. We will then make a new assessment and continue processing your personal data, despite your objection, only if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds that override your interests.

h) Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
You can file a complaint if you believe that we have violated applicable data protection regulations when processing your personal data.

However, this obligation does not exist insofar as this notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Notwithstanding the above, the user has a right to information about these recipients.
