1. Data Privacy Statement and Consent to Use of Data at mycare.de

As the operator of the website www.mycare.de, we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Since we are concerned about ensuring data security, we have chosen VeriSign as our partner.

2. Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data

2.1 Personal Data

The handling of the personal data you have provided is regulated by the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Personal data includes information about the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes name, age, marital status, date of birth, address, phone number, e-mail address, bank account, credit card number and health data.

2.2 Customer Account

When ordering, please let us know your e-mail address, your name, shipping and billing address, telephone number, date of birth, preferred salutation, first and last name and address (including a different delivery address, where applicable). We need this information to deliver the goods and generate the invoice. We need your e-mail address to send you e-mails concerning, for example, order and shipping confirmations, information on the goods, as well as to clarify shipping arrangements. We need your phone number in case we have any questions about your order or have to send you pharmaceutical information. By collecting your date of birth, we make sure that you meet the minimum age requirement of 18 years and we may also need this to be able to provide you with necessary information about the products ordered. We also collect, store and use your bank and possibly your credit card information to process the payment.

For each customer who registers accordingly, we set up a password-protected access to their inventory data (customer account) stored by us. There you can view information on closed, open and recently shipped orders, manage your address details, bank details and newsletter, use your personal wish list, as well as possibly track your loyalty bonus.

You undertake to keep your personal access data confidential and avoid disclosing it to any unauthorised third parties. We cannot accept any liability for the misuse of passwords, unless we are responsible for said misuse.

2.2 Order without registration

We make ordering child’s play even if you don’t have your own online customer account. Please note that even when placing an order without registration, your personal data associated with the respective order is collected, processed and used. This includes name, billing and shipping address, if applicable, date of birth, e-mail address, telephone number and any required banking information. When placing additional orders, you must enter this information again. Orders without registration do not benefit from our loyalty bonus. If you would like to place orders with us more often and take advantage of the accompanying benefits, it may be worthwhile for you to set up a customer account.

2.3 Collection, Processing and Use of Your Personal Data

In accordance with the legal provisions of the German Data Protection Act and the German Teleservices Act, we collect, store and process your data for the entire processing of your purchase, including any subsequent warranties, our services, technical administration and our own marketing purposes.

Your personal information will only be passed on or otherwise transferred to third parties, if this is necessary for the purpose of contract execution or settlement, or if you have consented to this beforehand. As part of order processing, the service providers (e.g. carriers, banks) we work with, for example, obtain the necessary data for ordering and fulfilment. Our service providers may only use the data passed on in such a way in order to perform their task. Any other use of the information is prohibited and refrained from by all service providers who work with us.

To protect your health and to perform our pharmaceutical service, we also collect and save health-related data. This health-related data, i.e. data regarding your health, medication, etc., is not passed on to third parties unless you expressly authorise us to do so. This data is only collected to provide thorough pharmaceutical care. We can ensure you that we only use this health-related data to perform the respective pharmaceutical services.

Your personal data shall be deleted unless this is prevented by statutory retention obligations, and provided you have made a cancellation claim, if the data retained for storage-related reasons is no longer required or if its storage is not permitted for other legal reasons.

2.4 Use of Your Data for Advertising Purposes

In addition to handling your data for order processing, we also use your data to inform you of special offers and marketing campaigns.

You can object at any time, in whole or for individual measures, to the use of your personal data for marketing purposes by sending a short notification to datenschutzmycare.de

2.4.1 Newsletter

For requesting a subscription to the mycare newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. Following your subscription request you will get a notification e-mail with an activation link. It is only by clicking this separate link that you confirm that you would really like to receive our newsletter.

If you no longer wish receive newsletters from us, you can change your mind at any time. Each newsletter has an unsubscribe link for this purpose.

2.4.2 Product Recommendations by E-mail

In order to constantly improve our newsletter, the newsletter includes a function that tells us whether, and if so, which product groups you clicked in the newsletter. We use this information to compile an anonymised analysis of click behaviour to help us create an interesting newsletter, while acting in strict accordance with statutory requirements.

2.5 Competitions

When it comes to competitions, we use your information for the purpose of notifying winners. Detailed information about this can be found in our conditions of participation for the respective competition.

3. Credit Check

Different payment methods are accompanied by different payment default risks. To protect ourselves from misuse, for the “invoice” and “direct debit” payment methods we transfer the personal data required to run a credit check to the company Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen GmbH & Co. KG, Gasstraße 18, 22761 Hamburg. Provided the company is exceptionally not available during the respective point in time we tranfer the personal data to the company Creditreform Boniversum GmbH, Hellersbergstraße 11, 41460 Neuss. The mentioned companies assesses the statistical probability of payment default, based on mathematical and statistical methods as well as adress and credit rating information. This helps in making decisions regarding which payment options should be granted.

By selecting either the “credit card” or “prepayment” payment methods, you can avoid the transfer of your data to the company Bürgel.
