Legal basis for our data processing
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services.
Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller.
Erasure or Restriction of Processing of Personal Data
Sartorius CellGenix GmbH shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or as far as this is granted by the legislator or by other legislators in laws or regulations, to which Sartorius CellGenix GmbH is subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

Data Protection Provisions for Sartorius CellGenix Social Media Pages
A. Parties responsible
Sartorius CellGenix GmbH runs its own social media pages together with the administrators of the following social media platforms:
- Twitter (if you live outside the United States of America: Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, D02 AX07 Ireland; if you live in the United States of America: Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA) for the Twitter pages at https://twitter.com/SCellgenix,
- LinkedIn (if you are based within the European Union, the European Economic Area or Switzerland: LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2 Ireland; if you are based outside the European Union, the European Economic Area or Switzerland: LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA) for the LinkedIn pages at https://www.linkedin.com/company/cellgenix-gmbh.
In the following, we will provide you with information on how Sartorius CellGenix GmbH processes the personal data which is collected when you visit our social media pages. The administrator of each social media platform is solely responsible for the processing of personal data on the social media platform itself on which our social media pages are hosted (for more information about the processing of your personal data by the administrators of social media platforms, see point II of section B).
B. Processing of your personal data
I. Processing of your personal data by Sartorius CellGenix GmbH
When you visit one of Sartorius CellGenix GmbH’s social media pages, we, as the administrator of the social media page, process your actions on and interactions with our social media page (e.g. the content of the messages, queries, posts or comments that you send to us or leave on our social media pages or if you like or share our posts) and your publicly visible profile data (e.g. your name and profile picture). The personal data that is publicly visible from your profile depends on your profile settings, which you can adjust in settings on the social media platform itself (for more information about this, see point II of section B). In general, you should not use social media platforms to transmit any sensitive data or confidential information (e.g. application documents, bank or payment details). We recommend that you use a more secure means of transmission for this purpose (e.g. letter, email). As part of running our social media pages, we process the aforementioned data for the purpose of providing information about us and our products and communicating with our followers and fans. This data processing is carried out on the basis of our aforementioned legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)) and, where necessary, in order to respond to the messages, queries, posts or comments that you send to us (Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR). We check whether comments or other interactions on our social media pages infringe applicable law or the relevant community guidelines and delete infringing comments where necessary. In the event that infringing comments are made frequently, we may, under certain circumstances, process the usernames involved for the purpose of internal coordination. This processing is based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR) in providing a reputable online presence and satisfying legal requirements.
The social media platforms also provide us with anonymized usage statistics (known as analytics ser-vices or page insight data) from our social media pages based on the actions and interactions of our followers (e.g. likes, shares, comments etc., number of followers, page views by section, reach of a post and statistics on followers by age, language, source or interests). These statistics help us to stay in contact with our followers and fans, understand the usage and reach of our posts, evaluate content and identify usage preferences as well as allowing us to design our social media pages to be as target group-appropriate as possible. We have no influence or involvement in the creation and processing of these usage statistics or the underlying data. These statistics are created and processed at the sole responsibility of the administrator of the social media platform in question and we are unable to view the personal data of individual followers or users (for more information on this, see point II of section B). This data processing is carried out on the basis of our aforementioned legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).
We also use these anonymized usage statistics to deliver targeted interest-based advertising on the social media platforms we use or to promote our posts. The delivery of interest-based advertising and the promotion of posts on the social media platforms we use are based on an analysis of the user’s previous usage behaviour by the social media platform in question and we are unable to view the personal data of individual users, combine such personal data with any personal data we may process or identify the users to which interest-based advertising is delivered (for more information on this, see point II of section B). This data processing is carried out on the basis of our aforementioned legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR). If, in exceptional cases, we were to carry out an enhanced comparison with customer lists to be uploaded by us to the social media platform in question in the context of interest-based advertising, this would only be done on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR).
We only process your personal data for as long as it is needed for the aforementioned purposes. If you object to the processing in pursuit of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR), we will delete personal data unless its further processing is permitted in accordance with the relevant legal requirements. We shall likewise delete personal data if we are obliged to do so for other legal reasons. In accordance with these general principles, we usually delete personal data as soon as the legal basis no longer exists, if it is no longer necessary for the stated purposes or if the stated purposes no longer apply and if no other legal basis exists (e.g. retention periods under commercial and fiscal law), or otherwise when the other legal basis no longer applies.
In the context of providing our social media pages, we work with service providers (e.g. IT service providers, advertising and content agencies, and recruitment agencies, which assist us with the creation of our posts, the provision and optimization of our social media pages and recruitment). Insofar as these service providers process personal data on our behalf, we have concluded data processing agreements with them and have agreed appropriate guarantees to ensure that personal data is protected. We also select our service providers with great care; they process personal data exclusively for the purpose of fulfilling their tasks; they are bound contractually by our instructions; they use suitable technical and organizational measures to protect personal data and they are regularly inspected by us. In other respects, we transfer your personal data to third parties (e.g. Sartorius CellGenix dealerships, service partners, cooperation partners etc.) only insofar as you have given us your consent to do so or this is absolutely necessary to fulfil a contract with you or to safeguard our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. a, b and/or f GDPR).
II. The processing of your personal data by the administrator of the relevant social media platform
The social media platforms also provide us with anonymized usage statistics (known as page insight data) from our social media pages based on the actions and interactions of our followers (for more information on this, see point I of section B). We have no influence or involvement in the creation and processing of these usage statistics or the underlying data. These statistics are created and processed at the sole responsibility of the administrator of the social media platform in question and we are unable to view the personal data of individual followers or users. It is possible that the social media plat-forms may also create their own personalized usage statistics, for example for their own market re-search, advertising, or other business purposes, as part of which they may also process personal data outside the European Union, in which we likewise have no influence or involvement. For more information about the processing of your personal data by the administrator of the relevant social media platform in the context of the creation and processing of usage statistics, see the information on usage statistics on the following web pages of each social media platform:
- Twitter target group insights (Twitter Audience Insights) at https://business.twitter.com/de/analytics/audience-insights.html,
For more information about the processing of your personal data by the administrator of the relevant social media platform in the context of interest-based advertising and about how to change your pro-file settings and advertising preferences, see the following web pages of each social media platform:

Right to object
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
Sartorius CellGenix GmbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
If Sartorius CellGenix GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to Sartorius CellGenix GmbH to the processing for direct marketing purposes, Sartorius CellGenix GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by Sartorius CellGenix GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact us. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
Automated individual decision-making in specific case, including profiling
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject’s explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s explicit consent, Sartorius CellGenix GmbH shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may at any time directly contact us.
