When our website is accessed, your internet browser automatically transmits information (e.g. the date and time it is accessed, URL (address) of the referring website, the accessed file, the amount of data sent, the browser type and version, operating system and IP address) to our server for technical reasons. This information is used by us anonymously for statistical evaluation and is only used to improve the appeal, content and functionality of our website. This information is not used to identify individual users. This information will not be merged with any other data sources. The information will be deleted once statistical analysis is complete.

In the mandatory fields, we are only collecting information which is essential for the application process. Additional important information can be entered voluntarily in the optional fields. We only save data which you have entered in the form yourself.

For organising and carrying out the application process, it may be necessary for us to pass on your information to companies affiliated with us within the ‘good healthcare group’ during the course of commissioned data processing. This shall naturally take place only within the limits of the law.

Cookies are data sets that are sent from the user’s web server to the web browser and are stored for future retrieval.

We only use cookies to obtain information about the use of our website and for statistical Evaluations.

7. Inclusion of third party services and content

This online content may sometimes contain material from third-parties, e.g. YouTube videos, mapping from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always requires the providers of such content (hereinafter ‘providers’) to obtain knowledge of the user’s IP address. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the user’s browser. The IP address is therefore essential for presenting this content. We endeavour to only use the content of providers who utilise the IP address solely for the purpose of supplying the content. However, we have no influence over whether providers store the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes. If we are aware that this is the case, we inform the user about this.
