BioAnalyt uses Google Analytics on the BioAnalyt Sites, a web analytics service provided by Google, LLC. Google Analytics also uses cookies (see Section E of this Privacy Policy). The information generated by the cookie about the use of the BioAnalyt Sites is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. As “IP anonymization” is activated for the BioAnalyt Sites, any collected IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or within Member States of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to a Google server in the US, and only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and be truncated there (please note that Google has joined the EU-US Privacy Shield). Google will use this information on BioAnalyt’s behalf to analyze the use of the BioAnalyt Sites, to compile reports on website activity and to provide services to BioAnalyt related to the use of the BioAnalyt Sites. According to Google’s terms, the IP address transmitted by a browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data of Google. Your browser settings can be configurated in order to prevent the storage of cookies. Deactivating the storage of cookies may limit the functionality of the BioAnalyt Sites. Transmission of the data generated by the cookie and relating to the usage of the BioAnalyt Sites (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of these data by Google can be prevented by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Information on the data use and retention practices of Google and its affiliates and subsidiaries, can be found within Google’s Privacy Policy currently located at www.google.com/privacy.html.

The BioAnalyt Sites use embedded videos offered by YouTube, LLC. BioAnalyt has activated the “extended data protection mode” offered by YouTube. According to YouTube, data will therefore only be transferred to YouTube when an embedded video is played. If you play these videos, YouTube may collect certain information about your use of the video. If you are logged in in a YouTube profile, YouTube may associate such collected information with your YouTube profile. Information on the data use and retention practices of YouTube can be found within Google’s Privacy Policy currently located at www.google.com/privacy.html.

BioAnalyt may also disclose your personal data to third parties, if required by law, such as in legal proceedings or response to a government request.

Your personal data collected by BioAnalyt is stored for the time necessary for the purposes for which such data has been collected (as outlined in Section D of this Privacy Policy) and/or as long as BioAnalyt has a legitimate interest to store such data. BioAnalyt also stores your personal data as long as required by law or pursuant to a court order or an order of a public authority. If necessary, BioAnalyt furthermore stores your personal data until the expiry of applicable limitation periods in order to be able to assert existing legal claims.
