General Information and Mandatory Information

Designation of the responsible office
The responsible office for the data processing on this website is:
Dental practice Breitenbachplatz
Alina Dr. Schröder
Breitenbachplatz, 21
14195 Berlin

The data controller, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, contact data, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to data processing
Only with your express consent are some processes of data processing possible. You can revoke your consent at any time. A notification by email is sufficient for the revocation – no special form is required. The legality of the data processing performed prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation

Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of a breach of data protection law, the person concerned has the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is located. The following link provides a list of data protection officers and their contact details.

Right to Data Portability
You have the right to access data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract automatically to you or to third parties. It is provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another data controller, this shall only take place to the extent that is technically feasible.

Right to information, correction, blocking, deletion
As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time and free of charge with information about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient, and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. In this regard, and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time via the contact options listed in the legal notice.

SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data that you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the “https://” and lock symbol in the address line of your browser.

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Cookies help us to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure.
Some cookies are “session cookies”. Such cookies are deleted automatically at the end of your browser session. On the other hand, other cookies remain on your device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognise you when you return to our website.
You can use a modern web browser to monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured so that cookies are automatically deleted when the program is closed. Deactivation of cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.
The setting of cookies, which are necessary for electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions that you  want to have (e.g. shopping cart), is done so according to Art. 6 para. 1. f of the GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies are stored (e.g. for analytics purposes), these are treated separately in this privacy policy.

Google Analytics
Our website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device and allow for an analysis of website usage. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually the US.
Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1. f of the GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour, in order to optimise our website and marketing processes.
Block your data on future visits to this site: Disable Google Analytics

IP anonymisation
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymisation feature. Your IP address will be truncated by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and provide additional services associated with the use of the website and internet to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Browser Plugin
The setting of cookies through your web browser can be prevented. However, some features of our website may therefore be restricted. Likewise, you can prevent the collection of data regarding your website use, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that can be accessed via the following link:

For more information about how Google Analytics handles user data, see Google’s privacy policy.

Order Processing
To fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have entered into a contract processing agreement with Google.

Demographic features in Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics’ “demographics feature”. It can be used to generate reports that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. It is not possible to assign or connect such data to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or you can generally forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section “Objection to data collection”.
