Purposes of processing: why do we process your personal data? 

We only process personal data if there is a legal basis for doing so. This means that we rely on the following legal bases:
 

  • necessary for the performance of a contract. This involves the processing of personal data for the correct and timely performance of the contract we conclude with you. We also need the personal data to maintain contact with you within the framework of our services. As part of the contract, we process personal data in our software system and correspond with third parties (e.g. suppliers) as necessary;
  • necessary to comply with a legal obligation. This includes, for example, fiscal retention periods for certain data for the tax authorities, such as invoices in connection with products and/or services you purchased via one of our websites. Under the BIG Act, we also process your BIG number in order to pass on your positive (training) results to the Quality Register of Dentists;
  • legitimate interests. This may include protecting our (intellectual) property rights (infringement of a proprietary right), fulfilling our duty of care to customers and employees, commercial purposes and processing for network and information security purposes;

Your data will be deleted in good time after completion of the selection procedure. 

 

Do we disclose your data to third parties?

In order to send materials of hands-on courses, your name and address details are shared with distributors and/or manufacturers and/or transporters.
