US Privacy Policy

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Bioniks. The use of the Internet pages of Bioniks is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary.

The processing of personal data, shall always be in line and accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Bioniks. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the Controller, Bioniks has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g., by telephone.

1. Consent

By using our website, you hereby consent to our Privacy Policy and agree to its terms.

2. Collection of General Data and Information

The website of Bioniks collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected information includes (1) user's Internet protocol address (IP address), (2) the number of times the IP has accessed the site, and (3) the date and time of access to the Internet site. This information may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

This information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, Bioniks analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject. In addition, a log file is used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend ourselves against attempted attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short period of time. When using these general data and information, Bioniks does not draw any conclusions about the data subject.

3. Use of General Data and Information

We use the information we collect as part of a clinical trial. As such, privacy concerns should be directed to the study sponsor.

4. Cookies

The Internet pages of Bioniks use session cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Cookies are small text files that are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your terminal device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit.

Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., the shopping cart function or language settings). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or to display advertising.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, existing cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers.

Most browsers also offer a so-called “do-not-track” function. When this function is activated, the respective browser tells advertising networks, websites and applications that you do not want to be “tracked” for the purpose of behavioral advertising and the like.

If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

5. Children's Information

Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity.

bioniks.net does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will do our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.

6. Third Party Sharing

We do not share data collected on the website with third parties.

7. Subject to Change

We reserve the right to adapt or update this data protection declaration, if necessary, in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. In this way, we can adapt it to the current legal requirements and take into account changes to our services, e.g., when introducing new services. The current version applies to your visit.

8. Changes to Privacy Policy

In the event that material changes are made to this applicable privacy policy, we will notify users via email.
