Privacy policy

(Updated November 28, 2022)

PathoBlock Therapeutics GmbH & Co. KG ("PathoBlock") may revise this policy ("Privacy Policy") from time to time by updating this page. You can review the Privacy Policy at any time by visiting the Privacy Policy link at the bottom of one or more pages on the PathoBlock web site ("Web Site") or by contacting privacy@pathoblock.com requesting a current copy. The term "You" as used herein refers to all individuals and/or entities accessing this Web Site, contacting PathoBlock or being contacted by PathoBlock for any reason or else interacting with PathoBlock.

Data collected by PathoBlock

When You access and use the Web Site, request additional information about PathoBlock, make a proposal, otherwise contact PathoBlock or are being contacted by PathoBlock for any reason or else interact with PathoBlock, PathoBlock may collect certain information ("Your Data") in accordance with this Privacy Policy. The collection, storage, use and any other form of processing Your Data by PathoBlock occurs exclusively in the interest of PathoBlock's business operations. PathoBlock will not sell, transmit, disseminate or else disclose Your Data for any other purpose. Insofar as You can – even if only in theory – be identified by Your Data, they constitute "personal data". This applies to Your Name and Your personal email address, but can also be the case for more elements of Your Data, including such relating to Your use of the Web Site.

When You access and use the Web Site, certain information, including Your IP address, is automatically logged. PathoBlock generally saves such invariably and automatically stored log data only for a very limited amount of time and only to prevent abuse of the Web Site; analysis of this very limited and invariably collected information for other purposes – if any – will only use aggregated and anonymized log data.

When You contact PathoBlock, are contacted by PathoBlock, or else interact with PathoBlock, PathoBlock will collect and store Your Data as provided by You or on Your behalf (e.g. Your name, contact details, e-mail address, phone number, etc.) to the extent necessary to contact You, to document the event, and to deal with the request or concern at hand. PathoBlock will generally not collect personal data other than from You or from persons or entities acting on Your behalf.

When You visit PathoBlock’s premises, Your image and Your movements in security-relevant areas (including the entrance area) will be captured, transmitted and recorded by video surveillance; sound is neither picked up nor recorded by the cameras in operation. Video surveillance serves security purposes and helps to exercise property rights, prevent criminal acts, facilitate their prosecution, and secure evidence. PathoBlock will not access, further process or transfer recorded video surveillance footage for other than the aforementioned purposes. Unless further storage and/or transfer to law enforcement is required for these purposes, recorded video surveillance footage is deleted regularly, at least once weekly.

Legal information regarding personal data and processing

There are special provisions regarding the protection of personal data, in particular the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG) and the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR). PathoBlock will process personal data strictly in accordance with these provisions. According to these provisions, PathoBlock is legally obligated to provide You with the following information:

KG, Leipziger Str. 51, 10117 Berlin, Germany, telephone: +49 30 5858 4350-0, for the use of this Web Site and for general inquiries with PathoBlock. Responsible for the video surveillance of PathoBlock’s premises is think-cell Operations GmbH (address as before).

Purposes of processing personal data and legal basis / Legitimate interests

PathoBlock processes personal data exclusively for its own business purposes, in particular (but not limited to) contacting You, attributing, answering and archiving Your queries, improving, optimizing and making our offerings and this Web Site more user-friendly, and to prevent and persecute illegal abuse.

The legal basis of processing personal data is, if You have not given consent to the processing, art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. f GDPR, or, within the framework of a contract or while negotiating a contract, art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. b GDPR. If You have given consent to the processing, the legal basis is art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. a GDPR.

PathoBlock's legitimate interests pursued by processing personal data are the unhindered, reasonable and customer-focused administration of PathoBlock's day-to-day business, in particular by allowing and facilitating the communication with current and prospective partners as well as other persons, the documentation of business processes, the compliance with legal obligations, the prevention of detrimental and abusive interferences, and the further development and improvement of our offerings and processes.

Recipients of personal data

Personal data collected by or on behalf of the controller will exclusively be stored and processed by PathoBlock and enterprises that are acting on behalf of PathoBlock and are subject to obligations of diligence and confidentiality. PathoBlock does not intend to transfer personal data to other third parties.

Personal data will be processed in the EU. If personal data is transferred to a party acting on behalf of PathoBlock and located outside the EU without Your express consent, Your rights will be protected by appropriate safeguards — in particular by standard data protection clauses. You can request a copy of such standard data protection clauses at privacy@pathoblock.com.

Storage period

Personal data will generally be stored for as long as they are deemed to serve PathoBlock's legitimate business interests as outlined above or PathoBlock is under an obligation to retain the information. The rights of the data subject as outlined below remain unaffected.

Your rights

No obligation to provide personal data

You are generally required neither by law nor contract to provide PathoBlock with personal data. If You opt to request further information regarding PathoBlock or our offerings or contact PathoBlock, it is generally mandatory to provide PathoBlock with certain information regarding Your company and Your contact details. Otherwise, we might be unable to communicate with You or enter into business with Your company. You may, however, choose to provide us with so-called "role contact details" (e.g., a departmental email address, a switchboard phone number, etc.) that do not allow PathoBlock to identify You as an individual.
