Privacy Policy

The protection of your personal data collected, processed and used during your visit to our website is important to us. Your data are protected in accordance with the provisions on data protection and privacy.

Where the website allows for the input of personal data (e-mail address, names, addresses, etc.), such data is entered voluntarily. The company Otto Bock HealthCare GmbH expressly states that such data shall not be shared with any third party and shall be used exclusively for the purposes of business relations. Furthermore, any storage of personal data is subject to prior consent under Section 4a German Data Protection Act.

Our website collects data in accordance with German and European provisions on data protection and privacy on the basis of technologies of Google Inc. (http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/). This automatic data collection occurs for statistical purposes in order to optimise the webpages and online marketing. These so-called “visitor data” include, in particular, the name of the provider, IP address, the type of browser and operating system, as well as the pages accessed including any search terms and websites from which you have accessed our website. Data are always processed anonymously, i.e., the data will not be associated with your person.

If you do not agree to the collection of this data, you can reject data collection and storage at this point for Google Analytics at any time and with future effect.

We strive to ensure that your data are not accessible to third parties by taking all reasonable technical and organisational precautions in storing them. However, we are unable to guarantee total data security for digital communications.

Data Privacy Statement regarding our Mobile Applications

To optimise our application (app) portfolio, Ottobock uses the software ‘Flurry’.

Flurry allows for the app’s use by the user to be understood and evaluated statistically. In the process, personal data are neither collected nor evaluated. Evaluation is done in an aggregate manner. Examples include the number of users during a given period of time, or page visits within a certain subject area.

Flurry does not collect any personal data, such as names, phone numbers, unique device IDs (UDIDs), e-mail addresses or messages. Flurry only stores the device type, the operating system used, the name of the ISP, and the aggregated numbers on the use of the app itself, as mentioned above. If you wish to prevent Flurry from using these data for the purpose of product improvement, you can deregister using the following website: https://dev.flurry.com/secure/optOut.do
