What is Blood Pressure Database
Blood Pressure Database is a service for the purpose of recording blood pressure data and optionally other health data. The data is stored and can be retrieved, furthermore evaluations such as statistics or history charts are generated. By using and storing data, you agree to the processing. You can revoke this consent at any time. Directly in the service you also have the function to delete the user account. All stored data will be deleted. You can also access all data directly via the service and make corrections if necessary.
On the website and in the app you will also find further information and tools on the subject of blood pressure.
- no collection of data that is not absolutely necessary for the service or its operation (principle of data economy)
- it is possible to use the service Blood Pressure Database pseudonymously or anonymously*.
- no unsolicited disclosure of data to third parties
- no unsolicited evaluation of your health data
- we only collect anonymous statistical usage data for the website and app, no "profiling".
*) A date is considered personal if we can assign it to the same person. Of course we assign your data to you, that is the purpose of a user account. However, we cannot directly deduce you from a given email address and a freely chosen user name and therefore regard the account as pseudonymous. You are welcome to use a new email address which otherwise has no connection to you. In the case of guest access, we do not have this information either and regard the use as anonymous. When contacting our servers, we always have your IP address, which is considered a personal date. However, we have no way to deduce a person from the IP address.
There are also a few external services that we use. From a data protection point of view, all this is OK and not very worrying. But we think you should know:
- We use Google Analytics on the website. This is done with IP anonymization.
- We use the counting pixels of VG Wort to enable our authors to participate in the program for the exploitation rights.
- We use Google AdSense on the website and AdMob in the apps to provide advertising. Profile building is switched off and the number of banners is very limited.
- We use YouTube for videos. So Google knows when you play a video or visit a page that has a video embedded.
- We use the Amazon affiliate program. This means that Amazon knows that links are from us. Occasionally we also use other partner programs.
- The apps for Android, Apple and Windows are available through the respective app stores. The operators Google and Apple know when you download and use an app.
- We use third party providers for sending letters and products and for processing orders. When purchasing the Premium Membership as an in-app purchase, the App Store operator receives data about the purchase.
- We record image retrievals when receiving our infomail to remove recipients who do not view email for a long time.
- The apps can keep an internal log, which can be transferred to us. However, this is only done in consultation and with consent in the specific individual case.
But that was it. For our support we use tools that run on our servers and that no third party has access to. Also employees only have access to statistical data for usage. This also applies to accounting data. These are not stored on an online server.
We are looking forward to your questions and feedback on data protection.

3. General notes and mandatory information
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties.

Note on data transfer to the USA
Among other things, our website includes tools from companies based in the USA. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of these companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in terms of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to release personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this.
Therefore, it cannot be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Cancelation of your acceptance of data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke a previously given consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing that took place up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to refuse data collection in special cases and direct advertising (Art. 21 DSGVO)
IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ART. 6 ABS. 1 LIT. E OR F DSGVO, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR SPECIFIC SITUATION, INCLUDING PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN PROVE THAT THERE ARE COMPELLING REASONS FOR PROCESSING WHICH ARE WORTHY OF PROTECTION AND WHICH OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PROCESSING SERVES TO ASSERT, EXERCISE OR DEFEND LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 PARA. 1 DSGVO). IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING, INCLUDING PROFILING, INSOFAR AS IT IS CONNECTED WITH SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 PARA. 2 DSGVO).
Right of complaint to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the DSGVO under data protection law, the data subject has a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of his or her habitual residence, place of work or place of the suspected violation. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found on the following link:https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.The right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data, which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
SSL- or TLS-coding
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as data entry, orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL or TLS coding is activated, the data which you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correct or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Right to limit processing
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. To do so, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request that we limit the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can demand the restriction of the data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 Paragraph 1 DSGVO, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. Furthermore, the collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of his website - for this purpose the server log files must also be recorded.

In order to provide a high quality of service, the app creates logs that can be transferred to us in case of support. These protocols are only transferred in consultation with our support team or must be sent to us proactively via email. An exception is the detection of serious errors (Exeptions).

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). The website operator has an interest in the analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both his website and his advertising.
Please note the information on the transfer of data to the USA under chapter 3 of this data protection declaration.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the collection of your information on future visits to this site: Google Analytics deaktivieren.
Sub Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
This website uses Google AdSense (incl. AdMob), a service for the integration of advertisements from Google Inc. ("Google"). Provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google AdSense uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of the use of the website. Google AdSense also uses so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). Through these web beacons, information such as visitor traffic on these pages can be evaluated.
The information generated by cookies and web beacons about the use of this website (including your IP address) and the delivery of advertising formats are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information may be passed on by Google to contractual partners of Google. However, Google will not merge your IP address with other data stored by you.
The storage of AdSense-Cookies is exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). The website operator has an interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising.
VG Wort tracking pixels
We use "session cookies" from VG Wort, Munich, to measure access to texts to determine the probability of copying. Session cookies are small units of information that a provider stores in the main memory of the visitor's computer. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the storage period. Session cookies cannot store other data. These measurements are carried out by Kantar Deutschland GmbH according to the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM).
They help to determine the copying probability of individual texts for the remuneration of legal claims of authors and publishers. We do not collect personal data via cookies.
We thus enable our authors to participate in the distributions of VG Wort, which ensure the legal remuneration for the use of copyrighted works in accordance with § 53 UrhG.
It is also possible to use our offers without cookies. Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to inform you as soon as cookies are sent.
6. Newsletter / Infomail
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.
In order to save unnecessary data transfer, graphics in our info mail are only loaded when viewing. We also note this in order to recognize when a recipient does not open the emails for a longer period of time.
The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address as well as its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation. However, the e-mail address remains stored in order to secure the history including confirmation of registration and deregistration and e-mails sent.
The data that you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you cancel the newsletter. Data that has been stored for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remains unaffected.
7. Plugins and Tools
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the site is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow, Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in advanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this site before they watch the video. However, the enhanced privacy mode does not necessarily preclude the sharing of information with YouTube partners. For example, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network regardless of whether you are watching a video.
When you visit one of our sites with a YouTube plug-in, a connection is made to YouTube's servers. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your end device after starting a video or use comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube may obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to gather video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud.
Once a YouTube video is launched, it may trigger other data processing operations over which we have no control.
YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
8. Online marketing and partner programs
Amazon partner program
The storage of "Amazon cookies" is based on Art. 6 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in this, as the amount of his affiliate remuneration can only be determined through the cookies.
Further information on data use by Amazon can be found in Amazon's data protection declaration:https://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=footer_privacy?ie=UTF8&nodeId=3312401.
