Privacy policy

1. Objectives and office responsible

The protection of your privacy and personal data is important to us. We observe all applicable legal provisions for the protection, handling and confidentiality of personal data as well as data security, including without limitation the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the Austrian Data Protection Act (Österreichisches Datenschutzgesetz, “DSG”), and the Austrian Telecommunications Act (Telekommunikationsgesetz, “TKG”).

This privacy policy informs about the type, scope and purpose of the processing (e.g. collection, storage and use) of personal data within our online offering and the websites, features and content associated with it ("online offering" or "website"). You may, through the hyperlinks and plug-ins provided on our website, access other websites that are not operated by us and to which this privacy policy does not apply. The respective third-party provider assumes exclusive responsibility for the content and design of such websites.

This privacy policy applies regardless of the domains, systems, platforms and devices used (e.g. desktop or mobile) on which the online offering is run.

The provider of the online offering and the office responsible under data protection law is Marinomed Biotech AG, Hovengasse 25, 2100 Korneuburg, Austria (hereinafter also referred to as "provider", "we" or "us"). Please address any enquiries regarding data protection to

The term “user” includes all customers of and visitors to our online offering. Terms such as “user” are to be understood as gender-neutral.

2. Basic information on data processing

We exclusively process users’ personal data in compliance with applicable data protection provisions and in line with the principles of legality, data economy and data avoidance. This means that users’ data will only be processed if there is legal permission to do so, especially if the data are necessary for us to perform our contractual services and our online services, or are legally required, or if consent to processing has been provided. In any case, data is processed only to the extent absolutely necessary.

We take up-to-date organizational, contractual and technical security measures to ensure compliance with the provisions of data protection legislation, and to ensure that the data processed are protected against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction and access by unauthorized persons.

If tools or resources of providers other than Marinomed (together referred to below as “third-party providers”) are employed within the scope of this privacy policy, and their registered office is located abroad, it can be assumed that data transfer will take place to the countries in which such third-party providers are located. The transmission of data to third-party locations will take place on the basis of legal permission, users’ consent or specific contractual clauses ensuring that the level of data security legally required is met.

3. Processing of personal data

Personal data will be primarily processed for the following purposes on the basis of statutory permissions or users’ consent:

  • The identification as authorized user;
  • the provision, operation, maintenance, optimization and backing-up of our website;
  • the distribution of web-server requests on our server-pool and for security reasons.

When users contact us (via a contact form or e-mail), users’ data will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case follow-up queries arise.

4. Collection of access data

We collect data on every instance of access to the server on which this service is located in the form of server log-files. Access data includes the name of the website accessed, the file, date and time of access, the data volume transmitted, the notification of successful access, browser type including version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (i.e. the site visited before), the IP-address and the provider making the request.

In accordance with statutory legal provisions, we use these log-data without assigning them to individual users and without compiling any other profile, exclusively for statistical evaluations for operational purposes and to secure and optimize our online offering. However, we reserve the right to subsequently review log data if – based upon concrete indications – there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use.

5. Cookies

Cookies are files containing information transferred from our web server or from web servers of third parties to the users’ web browsers, where they are stored for access at a later point in time.


The analysis tools used on this website are controlled via the Usercentrics consent management tool ( This allows users to make individual settings for the placement of cookies and the use of tools.

6. Other integrated services and third-party content

Based on our legitimate interest in the provision, optimization and economic operation of our online offering, we use additional services and content from third-party providers on our website in order to integrate their content and services.

In particular, we use the following third-party services and content on our website:

7. Newsletter

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with company information (referred to below as “newsletters”) only with the recipients’ consent (Art 6 (1a) EU General Data Protection Regulation/GDPR) or on the basis of legitimate interest (Art 6 (1f) GDPR). You may object to data-processing for advertising purposes based on legitimate interest at any time; to do so please contact or click on the link at the end of every newsletter received.

Registration details: All you need to do to sign up for the newsletter is to provide your e-mail address.

Statistical collection and analyses: The newsletters include a web beacon, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is accessed by the dispatching service provider’s server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval process, at first, technical information such as details of your browser and your system as well as your IP-address and the time of access is collected. This information is exclusively used for the purpose of technically improving our services based on the technical data or the target-groups and their reading behavior, as determined by the places in which they open the newsletter (which can be verified using the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys include identifying whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and the links on which users click. For technical reasons, such information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim – nor that of the dispatching service provider – to monitor individual users. Instead, we use such analyses to identify our users’ reading habits and to adapt our content accordingly or to send different content in line with our users’ interests.

8. Sharing and Retention of Data

Potential third-party processors will exclusively process your data on a legally recognized basis, on our behalf and on the basis of our instructions.

We only store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the purposes of data processing.

We store data in connection with telephone or electronic contact for as long as it is needed for the intended purpose or as may be required due to applicable statutory storage and documentation obligations.

Personal data will be deleted if they have fulfilled their purpose and deletion does not conflict with statutory storage requirements.

9. User rights and deletion of data

You are entitled to obtain information about your personal data processed by us (Article 15 GDPR). You also have the right to correct any incorrect or incomplete data stored by us and – under certain conditions – a right to deletion (Article 16 et seq. GDPR). In addition, you have the right to restrict our processing of your personal data (Article 18 GDPR) and a right to data portability with regard to the personal data provided to us (Article 20 GDPR).

You also have the right to object to data processing for reasons arising from your particular situation (Article 21 GDPR). Such objection may be made in particular against the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes.

Furthermore, you are entitled to revoke any consent granted at any time with effect for the future.

Finally, you have the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR). The supervisory authority responsible for Austria is the Austrian Data Protection Authority, Barichgasse 40-42, 1030 Vienna, Austria.

If you have any questions about data protection issues, please feel free to contact us.

10. Changes to the privacy policy

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy without notice in order to reflect changes in the legal environment or in the event of changes to the services or in data processing.

If user consent is required or components of the privacy policy include provisions of contractual agreement with users, such changes will only become effective upon users’ approval.

Users are kindly asked to inform themselves about the content of the privacy policy at regular intervals.
