Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
the protection of your personal data is important to us. According to the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG), we are obliged to inform you about the purpose for which personal data is collected and used on our homepage, how this is done and the scope of this. This information also tells you what rights you have with regard to data protection. This data protection declaration refers to our internet offer. It expressly does not refer to the treatment relationship. Here you will be informed when you visit the practice and separately.
→ Here you will receive separate patient information on data protection during your personal visit to our practice.
On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) adopted by the European Union will come into force. In accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act, this data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator:
Responsible for data processing:.
Dr. Nadja Mey
Contact details: 0213- 7 55 69 55 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We take your data protection very seriously and treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal regulations. As the controller, the Praxis Mey has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
Purpose of data processing:
The data is collected for the purpose of making appointments (online appointments) and for analysis purposes. For the latter, general data and information are collected:
The website of the Praxis Mey collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the Praxis Mey does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the Praxis Mey analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand for statistical purposes and on the other hand for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our practice, and ultimately to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
The website operator or page provider collects data on accesses to the page and stores them as “server log files”. The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited website
- Time at the time of access
- Quantity of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you came to the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
The data collected is only used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
How we handle contact data
If you contact the website operator using the contact options provided, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent. In addition, data is only stored if it is actively transmitted. For example, the data will only be used to answer enquiries or to send you information material. Contact data provided in the context of enquiries will only be used for correspondence. E-mail addresses that users have provided for the purpose of receiving a newsletter are only used for this purpose.
This website uses the “Google Analytics” service, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyse website usage by users. The service uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. Under the terms of the data sharing agreement between the website operators and Google Inc., Google Inc. uses the information collected to evaluate website usage and activity and to provide services relating to internet usage.
You have the option of preventing the cookie from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the corresponding plugin:
By clicking on the above link, you will download an “opt-out cookie”. Your browser must therefore generally allow the storage of cookies for this purpose. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link again each time you visit this website. Here you can find more information on the use of data by Google Inc:
This site uses the mapping service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Maps is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and to make it easy to find the places we indicate on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Use of social media plug-ins.
Furthermore, this website uses the “G+” button from Google Plus. This is operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). If you visit a page that contains the “G+” button, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Google servers. The website operator therefore has no influence whatsoever on the nature and scope of the data that the plugin transmits to the servers of Google Inc. If you click on the “G+” button while logged into Google +, you share the content of the page on your public profile. According to Google Inc., personal data is only collected when you click on the button. Even for logged-in Google users, the IP address, among other things, is stored.
