Legal basis of our data processing:

The legal basis of our data processing is derived from the provision of Art. 6 DS-GVO, whereby data processing is mainly

  • on the basis of a consent, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO
  • on the performance of the contract, Article 6(1), first sentence, point (b) DSGVO
  • to fulfil legal obligations, Art. 6(1)(c). DSGVO
  • or to safeguard legitimate interests, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO

takes place.

I Use of information when contacting BEE Medic GmbH

Use of information: when contacting us in writing by mail, e-mail or fax

If you contact BEE Medic GmbH in writing by post, e-mail or fax, the data you provide (e.g.: surname, first name, address, e-mail address, telephone number) as well as the information contained in the message and, if applicable, other personal data provided by you will be used for the purpose of contacting you and processing your request. If you contact us by telephone, as a rule no personal data will be collected, unless this is necessary to process your request (call back, written communication or similar). The processing of data in the ways mentioned here is done voluntarily on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Use of information: when using contact and registration forms on our website

If you use a contact or registration form on one of our websites, the following personal information marked with an "X" is required as mandatory data for the initial contact. The information marked with "-" will not be requested at the appropriate place:

The information from the respective forms will be used to process your request and your contact data will be stored by us in case of follow-up questions. The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected by this. If, in the case of support requests, we are unable to solve your question by e-mail, we offer you telephone support and, if desired, online support via remote maintenance. This may require further personal data, such as a contact for video conferencing and the use of remote maintenance programs from third parties. These are carefully selected by us and contracts for order data processing have been concluded with them. In all cases, the data is processed with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO and is used exclusively for the fulfilment of the task.

Use of information: Customer and contract data

Within the framework of:

  • orders or bookings
  • the supply of goods 
  • the provision of services
  • Payment processing
  • provision of services
  • and processing of support requests


we also collect, process, store and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the establishment, content design or change of the legal relationship (inventory data). Within the scope of this, it may be necessary for us to transmit personal data to third parties, for example to the credit institution commissioned with the handling of payments. Here too, data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, on the basis of consent and for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. A further transmission of the data is not carried out or only if you have expressly agreed to the transmission. 

Note on retention periods

We store your data in compliance with legal retention periods for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned above and for the business relationship. Afterwards your data will be deleted within the legal periods.

Note on revocation

In principle, you can revoke your consent to the use of the above-mentioned data at any time. You will find more detailed information on this and on your so-called data subject rights in section IV.

II Collection of personal data when using our websites

Collection of personal data for purely informational use of our websites 
You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. In the case of purely informational use, i.e. if you do not register and do not use any forms, we only collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to our server and stores in log data, so-called server log files. Without this no website can function. The log files are therefore stored to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimise the website and to ensure the stability and security of the website. The following data is collected:

  • Name of the website accessed
  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Amount of data transmitted and message on successful retrieval
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
  • Internet service provider of the user
  • Used operating system of the user
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Type of browser used, language and version of browser software


Since the collection of this data and storage in log files is necessary in order to operate a website at all, the user has no opportunity to object. The provider uses the log data only for statistical analysis for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the protocol data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence. An evaluation for marketing purposes does not take place. A consolidation of this data with other data sources is not carried out. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Session cookies and permanent cookies

In addition to the data mentioned above, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are assigned to and stored on your hard disk to the browser you are using; and through which certain information flows to the site that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies serve on the one hand to make our offer more user-friendly (e.g. storage of login data, use of a shopping cart etc.), more effective and safer. On the other hand, they serve to record statistical data on website use and to be able to analyse them for the purpose of improving our offer.

We use session cookies on our websites. A session cookie is a temporary cookie and, as the name suggests, is temporary in nature. They contain data such as an identification number (so-called session ID). They allow the server to assign subsequent browser requests to the same user and/or are necessary for the functioning of certain functions. These session cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

On the https://www.beemedic.de website we also use permanent cookies
Permanent cookies are set when you register as a customer on our website. When you create your user account, you will be asked whether you want to save your access data. This means that the next time you visit the website, your user name and password (encrypted) will already be entered when you log in. In this case, the cookie will only be deleted after 30 days. The use of cookies on the websites of BEE Medic GmbH is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO out of a justified interest in the technically error-free presentation of our websites and the optimal provision of our services. Other cookies, e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour, will be treated separately in the following.

The following applies to both temporary and permanent cookies: You can influence the use of cookies and actively delete them at any time. Internet browsers are set by default to accept cookies. However, you can make appropriate changes in the respective browser settings. You can find further information on this in the help function of your browser. Please note: this is up to you as an Internet user and you must take personal action here. Please also note that the deactivation / restriction of cookies can cause problems when using websites and that you can only use the customer photo function on our website https://www.beemedic.de to a limited extent or not at all.

Embedded information and content

It can happen that within this online offer third party content, such as videos from YouTu-be, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") are aware of the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.

The legal basis for this use is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO and our legitimate interest in making our offer more user-friendly for users as a whole. We have no direct influence on the collection of data. You can make settings for this directly with the respective person responsible for the integrated content. We use the following services for our web offer:

Use of Google MapsWe integrate the maps of the service "Google Maps" of the provider Google. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy findability of the places we indicate on the website. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The processed data may include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of the users, which, however, cannot be collected without their consent (as a rule, this is carried out within the framework of the settings of their mobile devices). Service provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The terms of use for Google Maps can be found under terms of use for Google Maps. You can find more details in the Privacy Center of google.de.

Use of Youtube Videos

We may integrate video content from YouTube into our web offer. The use of such content is in the interest of making our online offer user-friendly and in particular to explain our products or processes. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and also serves to fulfil pre-contractual measures. Service provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. You can find more details in the Privacy Center of google.de. Use of Google Fonts. We integrate Google's fonts ("Google Fonts") with Google, and users' information is used solely for the purpose of displaying the fonts in users' browsers. The integration is based on our legitimate interests in a technically secure, maintenance-free and efficient use of fonts, their uniform representation and taking into account possible licensing restrictions for their integration. service provider: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. You can find more details in the Privacy Center of google.de. The section "Embedded information and content" was created based on the free data protection generator Generator.de by Dr. Thomas Schwenke

Web analysis

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google") to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymisation is activated on this website, i.e. your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO. We use Google Analytics in the legitimate interest of analysing and regularly improving the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. By making the IP address anonymous, the interest of the users in their protection of personal data is sufficiently taken into account. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 90 days. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. You must opt-out on all systems and devices used in order for this to be fully effective. If you delete your cookies, you will have to set the opt-out cookie again. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link [https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].

We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool, but please note that if you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that Google will find out your IP address and save it.

You can find more information on terms of use and data protection at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.

Presence in social networks

We maintain company profiles within the LinkedIn, Xing and Instagram social networks to communicate with users who are active on those networks or to provide information about us. We maintain these profiles on the basis of our legitimate interest on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. DSGVO). We follow the debate and the checks by the responsible authorities and continually check ourselves whether we can continue to operate our social media presences under the given data protection conditions. We point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks for the users, because the enforcement of the users' rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield or offer comparable guarantees of a secure level of data protection, we would like to point out that they undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.

Furthermore, the data of users within social networks are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created based on the user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour and interests of the users 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 them).

For a detailed description of the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information provided by the operators of the respective networks. Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of data subject rights, we would like to point out that these can most effectively be asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users in each case and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. Should you nevertheless require assistance, you can contact us. The section "Presences in social media" was created on the basis of the free data protection generator.de by Dr. Thomas Schwenke
