Responsible for content according to § 6 MDStV:
Adem Gunes

With the judgment of May 12, 1998 – 312 O 85/98 – liability for links, the district court (LG) Hamburg decided that by creating a link, the contents of the linked page may be responsible. This can only be prevented by expressly distancing oneself from this content. Since we do not influence the design and scope of the externally linked pages, we explicitly distance ourselves from the content of all externally linked pages on the website www.gastrodiabetes.de and the underlying pages and do not adopt the content of the linked pages as our own.

According to § 5 TMG:
Responsible for the content according to § 55 Abs. 2 RStV.

Liability for content
The contents of our pages were created with great care. However, we cannot guarantee that the content is correct, complete or up-to-date. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages according to Section 7, Paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG). According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, however, we as a service provider are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the point in time at which knowledge of a specific infringement of the law is known. As soon as we become aware of any violations of the law, we will remove this content immediately.

Liability for links
Our offer contains links to external third-party websites, the content of which we have no influence. Therefore we cannot assume any liability for this external content. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal content was not recognisable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement. As soon as we become aware of legal violations, we will remove such links immediately.

The duplication, editing, distribution and any kind of exploitation outside the limits of copyright require the written consent of the respective author or creator.

Insofar as the content on this site was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are observed. In particular, the contents of third parties are marked as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, we ask that you inform us accordingly. As soon as we become aware of legal violations, we will remove such content immediately.

Privacy policy
Our website can usually be used without providing any personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

In addition to this data, we also use cookies on our website. These are small text programs that are stored on your computer (in your browser) after visiting our website. If you visit our website again afterwards, the browser you are using sends the information stored in the cookie to our website and can thus make navigation easier for you, for example, because default settings are adopted. Cookies are not viruses and cannot install malware on your computer. They are just short texts that are exchanged between the web server and browser. The following types of cookies are used on our website:

▪ Session cookies
This is a session cookie that is necessary to use all functions on the site. It is automatically saved on the computer by the internet browser. It is used to create a session ID to identify you while you are accessing the page and to recognize multiple related requests from a user and assign them to a session.

▪ Transient cookies (temporary cookies)
These cookies are only stored for the period of use of your browser. This stores a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to the website. As soon as you close the browser, these cookies are automatically deleted.

▪ Persistent cookies (temporary cookies)
These cookies differ from transient cookies only in that they are not automatically deleted when the browser is closed but only after a preset time. However, you can delete these cookies via your browser settings.

In principle, you can configure the settings of your browser in such a way that cookies are not accepted and saved at all or only to a limited extent. However, if you make use of this option, there may be restrictions on the usability of our website.

Google Maps API
In order to show you how to get to us visually, we use Google Maps to display maps and create route maps.

Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Inc. is a US company certified for the EU-USA Privacy Shield. You can find the certificate here:

The US Privacy Shield Agreement regulates the secure exchange of data between EU member states and the USA.

By visiting our website, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. This also happens regardless of whether you have a user account with Google or are logged in to it. If you are logged in to a Google user account while using the website, the data can be assigned directly to your user account. If you do not want this, you must log out before using the service.
Google Inc. has its own data protection guidelines for the use of the services, for which we cannot accept any responsibility. Please also read these:

By using Google Maps, you agree to the collection, processing and use of the automatically collected data and the data you have entered by Google and, if applicable, by third parties. You must exercise your right to object directly to Google. You can deactivate the Google Maps service via your browser settings (deactivation of JavaScript in the browser). It can then no longer be used.
The embedding of the Google map on our website is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

Google Fonts API
We use Google Fonts to show you the same font easily and uncomplicatedly on any device. This is a service provided by Google Inc., with which we can load the corresponding font from the Google Inc. server. This means that no cookies are stored on your end device. However, when you visit our site, your browser must request changes to the font from the Google server each time so that these can be displayed directly when you visit the site. Google Inc. states that the technical data transmitted in this way will not be linked to your possibly registered Google data. By being certified under the US Privacy Shield (see above), Google Inc. has subjected itself to the relevant requirements for the protection of personal data. The use of the Google fonts is based on the legal basis according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

Data protection for applications and in the application process
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing can also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the corresponding application documents electronically, for example, by e-mail, to the person responsible for the processing. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the person responsible for the processing. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

Legal: In order to ensure legal compliance with the Medicines Advertising Act (HWG), we expressly point out the experimental character or the “alternative” approach to the conventional medicine of the preparations/therapeutic methods used in the field of so-called “complementary medicine”. This means that there is no generally recognised scientific knowledge about the benefit/risk profile. Therefore, the user can also harbour unknown risks – a therapeutic success can but does not have to occur.
