4. Data collection on our website
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website and make your user experience more comfortable.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Cookies, which are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically error-free and optimized provision of his services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data are not combined with other data sources.
We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection establishment of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. The log files are also used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, these data may be temporarily stored by us. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is made anonymous by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. These data are not evaluated in anonymous form except for statistical purposes. These data are not combined with data from other data sources.
Contact us via email contact form
If you send us enquiries by email or use our contact form, your details from the enquiry form including the contact data provided by you there will be stored with us for the purpose of processing the enquiry, in the event of follow-up questions and for promotional purposes in connection with establishing contact (e.g. sending information material, initiating a contract). Should a transmission of information or documents to third parties be necessary, we will remove all personal data not required for the stated purpose beforehand. If it is necessary to answer your inquiry, we will forward your data to the sales partner responsible for you. Furthermore, we will not pass on your data without your consent.
The legal basis for the processing of these data for communication and advertising purposes is, with the user’s consent, Art.6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an email is Art.6(1)(f) GDPR. If the email contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, then additional legal basis for the processing is Art.6 exp. 1 lit. b GDPR.
The user’s data collected via the contact form or by contacting us by email will be deleted as soon as the user’s inquiry has been finally clarified without a contract having been concluded with the user. If the processing of the data is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), you can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal email. The legality of the data processing processes carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The data entered by you in the email will remain with us until you request us to delete it, until you revoke your consent to its storage or until the purpose for data storage ceases to apply (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
On our website we offer the free download of product and advertising brochures for our portfolio of diagnostic systems and laser systems. For this purpose, the email address and the country of the interested party in a form before the download. This is directed exclusively at commercial customers for the purpose of initiating a contractual relationship as well as for advertising information of our products. After entering the data, the interested party receives a download link by email, with which he can then download the documents.
The legal basis of data processing in the initiation of a contractual relationship is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. For general advertising purposes, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR is the legal basis. Our legitimate interest results from the security of preventing misuse of our advertising material and enabling the download of brochures in the applicable language.
We store and use the data for advertising purposes until we receive an objection. If data is stored for contract fulfilment or contract initiation, it is deleted when the data is no longer required for these purposes. The statutory retention periods remain unaffected by this.
Inquiries to doctors
Within the scope of the physician inquiry, direct communication with the requested physician takes place via your email program after your selection of the responsible physician. To do this, select the country or place where you are looking for a doctor. Another filter criterion is the specific treatment method. After selection, we will communicate directly without receiving any personal data as part of your communication with the selected physician.
Registration in the portal
As a user of our products or as a sales partner you have the exclusive opportunity to register on our website in a closed portal and thus create a user profile. We collect and use the following personal data during registration and setup:
- First name, surname, title, title
- Occupational group of the user (Management / Physician / medical or technical Assistant)
- Name of the practice / clinic or the company with which the user works
- Postal address of the practice / clinic or company
- Website of the practice / clinic or the company
- Telephone number under which the user can be reached professionally
- User’s email address
- Date and time of registration
In addition, voluntary information can be provided. Mandatory data provided for the purpose of registration are marked with an asterisk in the input mask as a mandatory field.
Your user account gives you the opportunity to receive our training and information offers from Customer Support and Technical Service, Sales and Marketing Support as well as Congresses and Events. In addition, you will always find the latest marketing materials such as brochures and videos, images and presentations.
Furthermore, you can present your company under the link “About us” with texts, photos and videos. Here a previous inspection and control takes place together with release by us. We do not collect any further data.
As part of the registration process, we ask for your consent to the processing of your data. If consent is given, the legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, insofar as the processing is necessary for the provision of the requested services.
Your data will be erased as soon as the user account on our website is deleted and insofar as there are no legal storage obligations. You can usually change and/or delete your user account, including the data you have provided, directly in your user account after logging in or by sending a message to the responsible person named at the beginning.
As a user you have the possibility to cancel the registration at any time by deleting the created account. In this case all data will be deleted by us. Furthermore, you can change the data stored about you at any time. If the data is required to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, premature deletion of the data is only possible insofar as there are no contractual or statutory obligations to the contrary.
5. IVIS profiles in social media
We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with active customers, interested parties and users and to inform them about our services.
We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside the European Union. This can pose risks for users because, for example, the enforcement of users’ rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they commit themselves to comply with EU data protection standards.
Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created from the user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer, in which the user’s usage behaviour and interests are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to these).
The processing of users’ personal data is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in effective user information and communication with users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers for consent to data processing (i.e. to give their consent e.g. by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button), the legal basis of processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information provided by the providers linked below.
Also, in case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, you can contact us.
On our websites you will find links to our social media channels. Only when you click on the link, you get to the respective social media platforms. By clicking these buttons you agree to communicate with LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube and a connection will be activated. The provider can collect and process personal data on the social media platforms. We have no influence on that. Please refer to the data protection declaration of the respective platform for information on the possible processing of your personal data.
Please note: We have no control over the data that LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube collect through this, nor over the extent of data collected by social networks. We also have no knowledge of the content of the date transmitted to LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube.
In all other respects the following rules apply to links and our social media appearances.
Retrieving YouTube videos and YouTube channel
On our website you can watch videos that are integrated from YouTube (a product of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland). For this purpose, we have used the extended data protection application of YouTube, so that only data from you is collected by YouTube if you click on the respective clip.
By clicking on the clips, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by YouTube.

GDPR) content or service offerings of third parties to incorporate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).

9. Data protection information for applicants
Data protection information in the application process
We process the applicant data only for the purpose and in the context of the application procedure in accordance with the legal requirements. The processing of the applicant data takes place in order to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations in the context of the application procedure within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR if data processing becomes necessary for us, e.g. within the framework of legal procedures.
The application procedure requires that applicants provide us with their data. If we offer an online form, the necessary applicant data are marked otherwise result from the job descriptions and generally include personal data, postal and contact addresses and the documents belonging to the application, such as cover letter, curriculum vitae and certificates. In addition, applicants may voluntarily provide us with additional information.
By submitting the application to us, applicants agree to the processing of their data for the purposes of the application procedure in accordance with the type and scope set out in this data protection declaration.
Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR are voluntarily communicated within the scope of the application procedure, they are additionally processed in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 letter b GDPR (e.g. health data, e.g. severely disabled status or ethnic origin). If special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR are requested from applicants during the application procedure, they are additionally processed in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR (e.g. health data, if these are required for the exercise of the profession).
If made available, applicants can send us their applications via an online form on our website. The data is encrypted and transmitted to us according to the state of the art.
Applicants can also send us their applications by email. Please note, however, that emails are generally not sent in encrypted form and that the applicants themselves must ensure that they are encrypted. We cannot therefore accept any responsibility for the transmission of the application between the sender and receipt on our server and therefore recommend that you use an online form or the postal dispatch. Instead of using the online application form and email, applicants can still send us their application by post.
If the application is successful, the data provided by the applicants can be further processed by us for the purpose of employment. Otherwise, if the application for a job offer is not successful, the applicants’ data will be deleted. Applicants’ data will also be deleted if an application is withdrawn, which the applicants are entitled to do at any time.
The deletion will take place after a period of six months, subject to a justified revocation by the applicant, so that we can answer any follow-up questions to the application and meet our obligations under the Equal Treatment Act. Invoices for any reimbursement of travel expenses are archived in accordance with tax regulations.
