Data Protection

1. personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is considered to be identifiable if he or she can be identified directly or indirectly, i.e. also with the help of further information. This may involve the association with an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or other characteristics.

2. processing of personal data

When you visit our Internet pages, our servers automatically save the name of your Internet service provider, the Internet page from which you visit us, the Internet pages you visit on our site, as well as the date and duration of your visit. In addition, personal data is only stored if you provide it to us voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, a survey or as part of the performance of a contract. We will only process this data to fulfil the purpose for which you have provided it to us. After the purpose has been fulfilled, this data will be deleted, unless further storage is required for legal reasons.

3. cookies


The Apheresis Research Institute reserves the right to use cookies in order to follow the preferences of visitors and to be able to optimally design the Internet pages accordingly. Cookies are small files that are stored temporarily (two years) on your hard disk. This enables easier navigation and a high degree of user-friendliness of a website. Furthermore, cookies can help us to identify particularly popular areas of our website. This enables us to tailor the content of our website to your needs and thus improve our services for you. Cookies can be used to determine whether your computer has already accessed our pages. These cookies make it possible to identify your computer, but not to establish a link to a specific person. The use of cookies therefore takes place within the framework and on the legal basis of Article 1 sentence 1 b) DS-GVO, as the use of our Internet pages takes place within the framework of pre-contractual measures for information.


Of course, you can also view our Internet pages without cookies. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive by selecting "do not accept cookies" in your browser settings. Please refer to the instructions for your browser to find out how this works in detail. You can also delete the "" cookie set in your system folder at any time. However, if you do not accept cookies, this may lead to functional restrictions of our Internet pages.


All session cookies are deleted when you leave our website.

4 Statistical analysis of usage


Our Internet pages use the Matomo software of the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Villes St. 6011 Wellington, New Zealand for analysis. The purpose of using this software is to analyse the use of our websites so that we can improve our services. The legal basis for the use is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 f) DS-GVO.


This is a purely statistical analysis of the use of our websites. The cookies already explained in section 3 may be used for this purpose. IP addresses are used for this purpose, but after being shortened so that they cannot be directly linked to a person. Data is neither merged with other data nor passed on to third parties.


If you do not agree to the storage and evaluation of this data, you can either make the appropriate settings in your browser to prevent the use of cookies or subsequently object at any time by clicking with the mouse. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser so that data collection by Matomo no longer takes place. Please note that if you delete your cookies completely, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and may have to be reactivated by you.
