5. Transfer of data

In principle, your personal data will only be passed on without your express prior consent in the following cases:

  • If it is necessary to investigate illegal use of our services or for legal prosecution, personal data will be passed on to the law enforcement authorities and, if necessary, to harmed third parties. However, this only happens if there are concrete indications of illegal or abusive behavior. A transfer can also take place if this serves to enforce terms of use or other agreements. We are also legally obliged to provide information to certain public bodies upon request. These are law enforcement authorities and authorities that prosecute administrative offenses.

This data is passed on on the basis of our legitimate interest in combating abuse, prosecuting criminal offenses and securing, asserting and enforcing claims and that your rights and interests in the protection of your personal data do not outweigh your interests, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit . f GDPR or based on a legal obligation according to Art. 6 Para. c GDPR.

  • We rely on contractually affiliated external companies and external service providers ("processors") to provide the services. In such cases, personal data is passed on to these processors in order to enable them to continue processing. These processors are carefully selected by us and regularly checked to ensure that your rights and freedoms are protected. The contract processors may only use the data for the purposes specified by us and are also contractually obliged by us to treat your data exclusively in accordance with this data protection declaration and German data protection laws.

In detail, we use the contract processors listed below. Insofar as personal data is transferred to third countries in this context, we ensure that this is done in accordance with the requirements of Art. 44 ff GDPR. DPAs with the service providers we use who have their headquarters in the USA are listed below. The DPAs contain so-called standard contractual clauses. The standard contractual clauses are agreements adopted by the European Commission. If the processor signs such a standard contract, it undertakes to comply with European data protection standards.

The transfer of data to contract processors takes place on the basis of Art. 28 Para. 1 GDPR, alternatively on the basis of our legitimate interest in the economic and technical advantages associated with the use of specialized contract processors, and the fact that your rights and interests in the protection of your personal data do not predominate, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

  • As part of the further development of our business, the structure of Altra Health limited may change, as the legal form is changed, subsidiaries, parts of companies or parts of the company are founded, bought or sold. In such transactions, the customer information is passed on together with the part of the company to be transferred. Whenever personal data is passed on to third parties to the extent described above, we ensure that this is done in accordance with this data protection declaration and the relevant data protection laws.

Any transfer of personal data is justified by the fact that we have a legitimate interest in adapting our corporate form to the economic and legal circumstances if necessary and your rights and interests in the protection of your personal data do not outweigh your interests, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

6. Deletion of your data

We delete or anonymize your personal data as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes for which we collected or used it in accordance with the preceding paragraphs. As a rule, we store your personal data for the duration of the usage or contractual relationship via the app plus a period of 7 days in which we keep backup copies after deletion, unless this data is for legal reasons or for criminal prosecution or are needed longer to secure, assert or enforce legal claims. If data has to be kept for legal reasons, it will be blocked. The data is then no longer available for further use.
