Data protection


The digital health transformation eG takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy.
The use of our website is generally possible without giving personal data. As far as personal data (such as name, address or e-mail address) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis, as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. We hereby inform you about the processing of your personal data such as your address, e-mail address for online donations, telephone number and date of birth, if communicated, by digital health transformation eG and the rights you are entitled to according to the new Data Protection Basic Regulation.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing
We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and all other relevant laws.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is based on Art. 6 paragraph 1c) and paragraph 4 recital (47) DSGVO. Insofar as special categories of personal data are required for this purpose, we will obtain your prior consent in accordance with Art. 9 Paragraph 2a) in conjunction with Art. 7 DSGVO. If we compile statistics using these categories of data, we do so on the basis of Art. 9 paragraph 2j) DSGVO in connection with § 27 BDSG.

We also process your data if it is necessary according to Art. 6 Paragraph 1f) DSGVO to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties.

This may in particular be the case:

  • to ensure the security of our systems,
  • for advertising our own projects as well as for market and opinion polls,
  • for the prevention and investigation of criminal offences, in particular by means of data analysis to identify events that could indicate abuse.

In addition, we process your personal data to fulfil legal obligations (e.g. regulatory requirements, commercial and tax law storage obligations). The legal basis for this is then the respective legal regulation in conjunction with Art. 6 Paragraph 1c) DSGVO. Should we wish to process your personal data for a purpose not mentioned above, we will inform you of this in advance.

A profiling will not take place.

Cookies and Tracking


When our website is accessed, the IP address of the accessing system, the calling page, the page called up, date, time, transferred data volume, status data (error code) as well as browser and operating system of the calling system are stored in log files on our systems.

We use cookies on some pages of our website in order to be able to provide you with more individualized services. You can set your browser to inform you about the use of cookies or not to allow the storage of cookies. Our pages can still be used by you, but may offer less comfort.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics from the US company Google Inc. to carry out usage analyses of our website.

This involves setting a cookie on your computer that contains usage information. The cookie is transferred to a server of the service provider, possibly in the USA, and stored there. You will find information on its use here in the Google data protection declaration

We also instruct Google with the function AnonymizeIP() to shorten the IP addresses to exclude a direct personal reference. The collected data is provided to us by Google in such a way that we can statistically evaluate and analyse relevant website activities.

Linking of external offers and external services

We also refer on our web pages to websites of other providers if we would like to draw your attention to their contents. We also link to our appearances in Facebook or Twitter. These can also be videos from YouTube, for example, which we provide there ourselves. When you access such third-party websites, we have no influence on how the provider handles your data. Please inform yourself about this in their privacy policy.

We also integrate useful services of other providers on our website that we consider useful. If, when using these services, data about you is collected, processed or used, this only happens if you enter data yourself. The contact person for this ("responsible body") is the respective provider. For the use and processing of your data, the data protection declaration of the respective provider applies.
