Thank you for visiting our website and showing an interest in our organisation, our services, and our online resources. We are committed to protecting the privacy of those using our website. We therefore request that you read the following information carefully.
Anonymous data collection
You are entitled to use any of the German National Library of Medicine's web pages without telling us who you are. The only information we receive is the name of your Internet Service Provider, the referring web page that brought you to our website, and the web pages you access on our website. This information is analysed for statistical purposes but, as an individual user, you remain anonymous in this process.
Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us voluntarily – for example when you order literature, fill out a survey, or sign up for our personalised services.
Provided that you have given your consent, your registration data will be processed within the scope of the German National Library of Medicine's personalised services for the purposes of providing information on our range of products and services, conducting market research, and tailoring our electronic services to meet your needs. Furthermore, providing that you have given your consent, the information you access while visiting the German National Library of Medicine's website will be merged into a user profile to enable us to offer you information that is tailored to your interests.
Data transfer and processing to/in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA)
No personal data is transferred to countries outside the EEA.
Use and disclosure of personal data
Unless you additionally provide consent for other purposes, the personal data collected through the German National Library of Medicine's web pages will only be used for order processing/contract fulfilment and for handling your enquiries. In addition – provided that you have previously given your consent – your data shall be used for the purposes of providing information on our range of products and services, conducting market research, and tailoring our electronic services to meet your needs.
We shall only use your data to tailor information to your personal interests if you have provided your consent for this purpose, too. For the rest, your data shall only be disclosed for invoicing purposes to the company Pria GmbH (Remscheider Str. 16, 45466 Mülheim an der Ruhr) if you have placed an order for literature or other items that is subject to a fee. You are of course entitled to withdraw your consent at any time with future effect in regard to any of the above.
