What data is stored here?

Your personal data will be used exclusively for the purpose of providing this website or providing individual services, such as logging into and using the download area or answering of contact requests. A processing of your data to track your visit to this site for advertising purposes or to process individual requests is only done after your prior consent.
Furthermore, these personal data provided by you, especially when providing our services, are technically necessary. If these data can not be processed, individual services may not be offered for technical reasons.

Our internet service provider (ISP) automatically stores data that your browser transmits to the webserver in so called "server access logs". These are text files that log every access to the webserver. The provider collects this data to be able to analyse problems with the web server and to detect possible attacks to the web server, e.g. by hackers. The data is stored for seven days and then gets deleted automatically. The data stored in detail:

  • type and version of the browser you use
  • operating system of your device
  • websites that linked you to this site (referrer URL)
  • hostname of your device
  • date and time of your visit
  • your internet protocol address (IP address)

This data is not combined with any other data.

The principles of data protection for metek Medizin-Technik-Komponenten GmbH are decisive in the processing. For this reason, metek Medizin-Technik-Komponenten GmbH determines the storage periods according to their needs and implements them accordingly.

The data is passed on exclusively to the following recipients:

Name (category) Purpose Transfer to Third Countries
Internet provider Operation of the web site No

A transfer of your data to a third country does not take place on our website.

We would like to point out that the transfer of data through the internet (e.g. by sending eMails) is always subject to potential security risks.

Legal basis

The prohibition with reservation of permission always applies to the processing of personal data. This means that the metek Medizin-Technik-Komponenten GmbH is only allowed to process personal data if this is explicitly permitted by law.

The processing is therefore based on the following legal foundations:

  • Operation of this website:
    Article 6, paragraph 1 f) GDPR
  • Processing of contact requests:
    Article 6, paragraph 1 a) GDPR
  • Making downloads available on this website:
    Article 6, paragraph 1 b) GDPR


The Content Management System (CMS) of our site uses a so-called "session cookie" to enhance the user experience and the navigation across the site. This cookie stores an anonymous, random number (so-called "session ID"). As soon as you leave this site, this cookie will be deleted automatically.

When you log in to the download area, your logged-in status is also stored in a cookie so you don't have to log in again and again every time you navigate to a different page. This cookie also gets deleted when you leave the site, unless you have activated the "Remember Me" function during login - in that case the cookie is store for 60 days before it is automatically deleted.

This site does not use so-called "tracking cookies" that would allow to track your surf behaviour. Also, this site does not use any cookies set by Third Parties.

The cookies used are for the sole purpose of enabling the operation of the website and the download function.

Contact form

When you use the contact form on this site, the data you enter there including your contact information is processed by us solely for the purpose of answering your request.

Encryption of your data

To protect data you may enter on this site, this site uses SSL encryption to transfer data between your browser and the web server. This way, data you enter here can not be read by others during transport between your device and the webserver.
