Data Protection Statement

We are delighted that you are interested in our company. Data protection is extremely important to the management team at Beurer GmbH. In principle, you can use the Beurer GmbH website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to avail of specific services provided by our company via the web version of the app, some processing of personal data may be necessary. If it is necessary to process personal data, and in the absence of a legal basis for such processing, we generally request consent from the data subject.

Personal data such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject are always processed in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with the national data protection provisions applicable for Beurer GmbH. The purpose of this data protection statement is for our company to inform the general public about the manner, scope, and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use, and process. In addition, this data protection statement will explain the rights of data subjects.

Beurer GmbH, as the controller for processing, has implemented many technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed are protected to the greatest possible degree. However, online data transfers are by their nature associated with security vulnerabilities, meaning that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.
