Privacy policy

We are very pleased about your interest in the practice of Dr. Peter Seehofer. Data protection is a particularly high priority for the management and the entire team of Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer. The internet pages of the Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer can generally be used without providing any personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services offered by our company via our website, it may become necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the practice of Dr. Peter Seehofer. By means of this data protection declaration, our practice wishes to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about the rights to which they are entitled.
The practice Dr. Seehofer, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.

3 Definitions
The data protection declaration of Dr. Peter Seehofer's practice is based on the terms used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our patients and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:

3.1 Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as 'data subject'). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

3.2 Person concerned
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

3.3 Processing of personal data
Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

3.4 Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.


3.5 Profiling
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location.

3.6 Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

3.7. Controller or data controller
Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or national law, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union or national law.

3.8. Processors
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

3.9 Recipient
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with Union or national law, shall not be considered as recipients.

3.10. Third parties
Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.

3.11. Consent
Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed expression of the data subject's will in an informed and unequivocal manner, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.


4 Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for 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 necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations which 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 which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company was injured and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 DSGVO).

5 Rights of the data subject

5.1 Right to confirmation
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data relating to him are being processed.

If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in relation to the transfer.

5.3 Right of rectification
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to request the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data concerning him. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, having regard to the purposes of the processing.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact our Data Protection Officer or any other member of staff of the controller.

5.4 Right of deletion (right to be forgotten)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, where one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:
(1) the personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary
(2) the data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DPA or Article 9(2)(a) DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(1) DPA and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(2) DPA.
(4) The personal data were processed unlawfully.
5. The erasure of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
(6) The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered, in accordance with Article 8(1) of the DPA.
If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored at the practice of Dr. Peter Seehofer deleted, he may contact our data protection officer or any other employee of the data controller at any time. The data protection officer of the Practice Dr. Peter Seehofer or another employee will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by the Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer and our company, as the person responsible, is obliged to delete the personal data pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, the Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer will take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The data protection officer of the practice Dr. Peter Seehofer or another member of staff will arrange the necessary steps in individual cases.

5.5 Right to limit processing
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:
(1) the accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data
(2) the processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
3. The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them in order to assert, exercise or defend his rights.
(4) The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at the practice of Dr. Peter Seehofer, he or she may contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller at any time. The data protection officer of Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer or another employee will arrange for the restriction of the processing.

5.6 Right to data transferability
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which have been provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He/she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter a DPA or Art. 9 paragraph 2 letter a DPA or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter b DPA and that the processing is carried out by means 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.
In addition, when exercising their right to data transfer pursuant to Art. 20, para. 1 FADP, the data subjects have the right to request that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
In order to assert the right to data transfer, the person concerned may at any time contact the data protection officer appointed by Dr. Peter Seehofer's practice or any other employee.

5.7 Right to object
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator for directives and regulations, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that is carried out on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letters e or f of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
In the event of an objection, the practice of Dr. Peter Seehofer will no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to the processing for the purposes of direct marketing vis-à-vis the Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer, the Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right to object, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out at the office of Dr. Peter Seehofer for the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89, paragraph 1, DSGVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right of objection, the data subject may directly contact the data protection officer of the practice Dr. Peter Seehofer or any other employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his or her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

5.8. Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, as guaranteed by the European Directives and Regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him/her or significantly affects him/her in a similar way, provided that the decision

(1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or

(2) is authorised by Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject and that law contains adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or

(3) with the express consent of the data subject.

(2) If it is carried out with the express consent of the person concerned, the practice of Dr. Peter Seehofer shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the person concerned, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to present its own standpoint and to contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time contact our Data Protection Officer or any other member of staff of the controller.

6 Use of our online services
You can use our online offer without disclosing your identity. In this section we explain when and in what context we process data when using our online offers, which offers of service providers and cooperation partners we have implemented, how they work and what happens with your data.

6.1 Data collection when visiting our websites
The website of Dr. Peter Seehofer's practice collects a number of general data and information with every visit to the website by a person concerned or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded

(1) used browser types and versions,

(2) the operating system used by the accessing system,

(3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer),

(4) the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,

(5) the date and time of access to the website,

(6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address,

(7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and

(8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned.

This information is rather needed to

(1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly

(2) to optimise the contents of our website,

(3) to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and

(4) to provide law enforcement authorities with information necessary for law enforcement purposes in the event of a cyber attack.

These anonymously collected data and information are therefore statistically evaluated by Dr. Peter Seehofer's practice on the one hand and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us.

The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

6.2 Use of cookies
The internet pages of the company Praxis Dr. Peter Seehofer use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an internet browser.
Numerous internet pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identification of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters which can be used to assign Internet pages and servers to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the Internet pages and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by means of the unique cookie ID.
By using cookies, the practice Dr. Peter Seehofer can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services which would not be possible without the setting of cookies.
By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the interest of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

6.3 SSL encryption
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.

6.4 External links
Our online offer contains links to other websites. We have no influence on whether their operators comply with the data protection regulations.

6.5 Contact forms and e-mail contact
On our online offers you will find contact forms and e-mail links (mailto), which can be used for electronic contact. In this way we fulfil the legal requirement, among other things, to enable rapid electronic contact with us. If you make use of this possibility, your data will be processed and automatically stored for the purpose of answering the enquiry in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. We will delete the enquiries if they are no longer required and no legal archiving obligations apply.

6.6 Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or by any other law or regulation to which the controller is subject.
If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

7 Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DSGVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our owner.

8 Duration for which personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

9 Legal or contractual provisions on the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before the person concerned makes personal data available, he or she must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.

10 Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.

11 Children
Our offer is basically aimed at adults. Persons under 16 years of age may not transmit personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians.

12 Changes
The above data protection declaration has been drawn up in accordance with the current state of available information and legal advice, with the aim of fully complying with the DSGVO. Should changes in the law, new information or a change in the Internet landscape result in a change or expansion of the data collection, we will inform you here about new developments.
