The following data protection declaration applies to the use of our services on the websites mentioned below and to the use of our measuring devices with applications on different operating systems.
The measured values are permanently assigned to the biozoom scanner using an encrypted identifier contained in the device. This has the advantage that neither a user account nor passwords are necessary. However, you should therefore only make your biozoom scanner accessible to people who are allowed to experience the measured values. Since the biozoom scanner itself is the key to the stored data, it should be kept in a safe place.
The person responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 GDPR is
biozoom services GmbH,
hereinafter referred to as "biozoom" or "we".
If you want to object to the collection, processing or use of your data by us in accordance with these data protection provisions as a whole or for individual measures, you can address your objection to the person responsible.
You can save and print this data protection declaration at any time.
Biozoom takes data protection very seriously and would like to ensure that your privacy is protected and that you are informed about the use of your data. In this data protection notice we therefore explain how and for what purposes we handle your data. These data protection notices explain our handling of data when using the biozoom software to evaluate the measurements made with the biozoom scanner via biozoom server (collectively the "biozoom services").

Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) GDPR in conjunction with Art. 28 GDPR.
3.2 Access data
We collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage behavior and your interaction with us and register data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, save and use data about every access to our website (so-called server log files). The access data include:
- Name and URL of the file accessed
- Date and time of the call
- amount of data transferred
- Notification of successful retrieval (HTTP response code)
- browser type and version
- Operating system
- Referer URL (i.e. the previously visited page)

- The user's internet service provider
- IP address and the requesting provider
We use this log data without assignment to your person or other profiling for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of our website, but also for anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) as well as the scope and type of Use of our website and services, also for billing purposes. Based on this information, we can provide personalized and location-based content and analyze the data traffic, search for and correct errors and improve our services.
This is also our legitimate interest in accordance with Art 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) GDPR.
We reserve the right to retrospectively check the log data if, based on specific indications, there is a legitimate suspicion of illegal use. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is necessary for security purposes or for the provision of services or the billing of a service, e.g. B. if you use one of our offers. After canceling the order process or after receipt of payment, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also save IP addresses if we have a specific suspicion of a criminal offense in connection with the use of our website.
We use so-called session cookies to optimize our website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective server when you visit a website and is temporarily stored on your hard drive. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This enables your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser.
To a lesser extent, we also use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your device), which remain on your device and enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. These cookies are stored on your device. The cookies are used to display your measurement data history, which is not stored on our servers.
The following data and information are stored in the cookies:
- Information about the number of visits to our website and the use of individual functions of our website.
- Measured value and date of measurement
When the cookie is activated, an identification number is assigned to it and your personal data is not assigned to this identification number. Your name, your IP address or similar data that would enable the cookie to be assigned to you are not stored in the cookie. Based on cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymised information, for example about which pages of our website have been visited.
You can set your browser so that you are informed in advance about the setting of cookies and can decide in individual cases whether you want to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, or that cookies are completely prevented. This can limit the functionality of the website.
3.4 Measurements and measurement processes
When you carry out a measurement with the biozoom scanner, the raw measurement data is encrypted by the biozoom scanner and transmitted to the biozoom software on your device. The encrypted data is transferred to a biozoom server to calculate the measurement results and, if necessary, to create measurement processes. Measurement results and, if necessary, measurement processes are calculated on this server. The measurement results are then displayed in your biozoom software. All servers operated by or on behalf of biozoom for the evaluation of raw measurement data and the creation of measurement processes are located in Germany. The data will not be transferred outside of Germany.
Raw measurement data, measurement results and measurement processes are generally not linked to personal characteristics of the user. biozoom cannot assign the data to a specific person, but only to the biozoom scanner used. This is done using the serial number of the biozoom scanner, which is transmitted to the biozoom server together with the raw measurement data. All raw measurement data are encrypted on the biozoom scanner before they are transmitted to the biozoom server for evaluation.
Even if you enter a user ID, for example a name or an identification number, into the biozoom software for a measurement in order to assign the measurement to a specific person, the biozoom software automatically converts this into a so-called hash value before it is transmitted to a biozoom server. This hash value does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the person concerned, but enables the biozoom servers to differentiate between persons measured with the same biozoom scanner in order to create individual measurement processes for them.
3.4.1 Example of data acquisition when using biozoom scanners
Here we give you a detailed example of data acquisition when using the biozoom scanner:
· Your device has a serial number. The measurement data are saved for this serial number.
· Depending on the technical equipment, a user ID can be entered for the measured person, for example a patient or customer number.
The input is converted into a hash value before transmission, from which the original input cannot be recognized. The measured values are saved on the biozoom server under this hash value. Advantage of the process: No personal data is sent to biozoom. In exceptionally rare and technically unavoidable cases, however, it can happen that different names / customer numbers lead to an identical hash value and thus data from different users are mixed up and measurement processes are falsified. Mixing with data from other biozoom scanners is excluded.
· When the biozoom software is started, data on your device and your applications (for example the Windows version you are using and the version of the biozoom software) are recorded. This information is used to check or improve compatibility (e.g. to better coordinate the biozoom scanner and the biozoom software).
3.5 Data to fulfill our contractual obligations
We process personal data that we need to fulfill our contractual obligations, such as name, address, email address, ordered products, billing and payment data. The collection of this data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract.
The data will be deleted after the warranty periods and statutory retention periods have expired.
The legal basis for processing this data is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 b) GDPR, because this data is required so that we can fulfill our contractual obligations towards you.
3.6 Improving Our Services
We also use the data transmitted to the biozoom server in the manner described above to continuously improve the user-friendliness and quality of the biozoom services. If you install the biozoom software and use the biozoom services, biozoom collects anonymous data on the use of biozoom software and services, as well as any data about the end devices used for this purpose. Examples of data collected:
Operating system version and installation problems, text input in input fields of the biozoom software and sensor data of the biozoom scanner, as well as frequency of use.
Our legitimate interest in using the anonymous usage data in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 f) GDPR is to make our services more user-friendly, more effective and safer and to be able to search for and correct errors more effectively.
3.7 E-mail contact
If you contact us (e.g. using the contact form or email), we will process your details to process the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
If the data processing takes place in order to carry out pre-contractual measures, which take place at your request, or, if you are already our customer, in order to carry out the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 b) GDPR.
We only process further personal data if you give your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) GDPR) or we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) GDPR) . A legitimate interest is e.g. B. replying to your email.
