Account holder of Oculyze products

We sell products of the company Oculyze. In order to control the microscope by using an app, the Oculyze GmbH has to set up an account using the customer’s email address. The email address required is communicated to us by the customer and transmitted to Oculyze GmbH by us. In the event that a personal e-mail address of a company is involved, the company must ensure that the owner has consented to the transmission of his address to BIOTECON and Ocuyze. The following processing takes place for this:

Personal Data:

Surname, first name, company, country and email address

Data Retention Period:

10 years

Contact persons of customers and suppliers

The contact data of contact persons will be processed as follows:

Personal Data:

Email address, surname, first name, company, country, industry, title, telephone number (optional)

There is no obligation to transmit this data. Processing is also not absolutely necessary for the service.
