Data protection

Basic principles

LABOGEN appreciates your visit to our website and your interest in our company and our products. We are serious about protecting your private data and aim for trusting cooperation when visiting our internet site. Our compliance with legal data protection requirements is a matter of course. Our employees are sworn to data secrecy and are regularly trained in the areas of data protection and data security.

We use the data you provide us with to fulfil and complete your order. Below, we would like to briefly show you how we protect your data and what you get from using our online offers.

Access data

When you access our internet pages, LABOGEN receives access data which are saved for back-up purposes and generally enable identification:

  • The name of your internet service provider
  • The country you are from
  • The website from which you are visiting us
  • The search term if you arrived at our site via a search engine
  • The internet pages of that you are visiting on our site

This data is evaluated by LABOGEN to discover and evaluate user behaviour. This does not involve a personal evaluation.

Personal data

Personal data is information that is explicitly used to determine your identity. This includes information such as your name, postal address or email address. We only save personal data in addition to the access data if you provide it to us voluntarily, for example during registration, in a survey, a drawing, a contact request, subscription to a newsletter or to fulfil an online order. In addition, personal data is only used to the extent necessary and only for the legally permitted purpose you agreed to. LABOGEN uses encryption methods to securely transfer your data in secure areas. This means that communication between your browser and our ordering system, for instance cannot be read by others on the internet. All data is stored exclusively on LABOGEN's specially protected servers in Germany. 

Transmission of personal data to third parties

LABOGEN also provides its services in collaboration with selected partners. They are subject to the same strict data protection regulations and are also included in LABOGEN's data protection policy. Personal data is only transmitted for the processing of order data, e.g. online orders in individual cases, if you have previously given your consent.

LABOGEN does not pass on other information to third parties, such as information about areas of interest provided voluntarily. Personal data is only transmitted to government institutions and authorities in the context of legal or court obligations.
