Personal Information is any information relating to personal or material circumstances that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. This includes, for example, your name, date of birth, e-mail address, postal address, or telephone number as well as online identifiers such as your IP address. In contrast, information of a general nature that cannot be used to determine your identity is not Personal Information. This includes, for example, the number of users of a website.
Special category data is Personal Information that needs more protection because it is sensitive. This includes Personal Information revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data. As well as, data concerning health, a person’s sex life; and a person’s sexual orientation. In order to lawfully process Special Category Data, it is necessary to explicitly consent to the processing.
The information protected by HIPAA is all health information relating to an individual´s past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition, the provision of health care to the individual; or the past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care to the individual. Additionally, any information that can identify – or be used to identify – the subject of the information is also protected by HIPAA.
“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon Personal Information, whether or not by automatic means. The term is broad and covers virtually any handling of data.
In principle, we will only use your Personal Information in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in particular:
The responsible party for data processing is MeddiPop of 8 The Free, Suite H, Dover, Delaware, 19901, United States (“MeddiPop”, “we”, “us”, or “our”). If you have any questions or if you wish to exercise your rights, please contact us using email@example.com or our Contact Form.

Data we collect automatically
Each time you visit our website, our system automatically records the following data from the visiting device and stores it in a so-called log file: i) Name of the retrieved file, ii) date and time of the visit, iii) amount of data transferred, iv) message about successful retrieval, type of browser and version used, v) IP address (identification of the user’s device), vi) Operating system of the visiting device, vii) Internet service provider of the visiting device, viii) website from which you access our website, and ix) which of our website pages you are accessing. The legal basis for processing is our legitimate interest.
We use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to distribute our online content. Our CDN is a network of regionally distributed servers of our technical service providers connected via the Internet. When our website is visited, your device`s browser transmits information to these service providers, which is collected in corresponding server log files. Server log files are generally anonymized and then transmitted without any personal reference. Server log files include, in particular, i) details of the browser and operating system used, ii) the previously visited pages (so-called referral URL), iii) the IP address of the device used, iv) the name of the Internet provider, as well as v) the date, time of all page views including the amount of data transmitted. The legal basis for processing is our legitimate interest.
To provide our website, we use the services of Hostinger International Ltd, who process all data to be processed in connection with the operation of our website on our behalf. The legal basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest in providing our website.
On our website, we implement videos of the video portal “YouTube” of the company Google LLC.
When you call up a page that has an embedded video, a connection is established to Google’s servers and in the process the content is displayed on the website by notifying your browser. According to Google’s information, in “extended data protection mode” your data – in particular which of our Internet pages you have visited as well as device-specific information including the IP address – is only transmitted to the YouTube server in the USA when you watch the video. By clicking on the video, you consent to this transmission.
Data we collect directly
We may ask you for Personal Information when you:
In order to provide you with a more consistent and personalized user experience in your interactions with MeddiPop, data collected through one source may also be linked to other data collected by MeddiPop through other sources. This may include data that helps us identify you when you access our website through several different devices.
In addition to your name, company name, and e-mail address, IP address or telephone number, if provided, we usually collect the context of your message which may also include certain Personal Information. The Personal Information collected when contacting us is to handle your request and the legal basis is both your consent and Contract.
We are present on social media (currently YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram) on the basis of our legitimate interest. If you contact or connect with us via social media platforms, we and the relevant social media platform are jointly responsible for the processing of your data and enter into a so-called joint controller agreement. The legal basis is our legitimate interest, your consent or, in some cases, the initiation of a contractual service, if any.
If you contact us via the chat, the personal data transmitted by you will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted to us on a voluntary basis by you will be stored for the purpose of processing your request or contacting you. We use the services of Intercom on our website. We have no knowledge of the storage period at Intercom and no possibility to influence it.
We process the data of our registered users in order to be able to provide our contractual services as well as to ensure the security of our services and to be able to develop it further. This includes in particular our support, correspondence with you, invoicing, fulfillment of our accounting and tax obligations.

If the GDPR is applicable to you, please note: When using our services, you become the data controller and we become the data processor in accordance with Chapter 4 of the GDPR. Where we process your Personal Information as data processor or in other words on behalf of you, we will process the Personal Information involved in your use of our chat services in accordance with your instructions and shall use it only for the purposes agreed between you and us.

We process data in the context of administrative tasks as well as organization of our business, and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In this regard, we process the same data that we process in the course of providing our contractual services. The processing bases are our legal obligations and our legitimate interest.
If you pay through our website your payment data will be processed via our payment service provider Stripe. Payment data will solely be processed through Stripe and we have no access to any Payment Data you may submit.

If you have consented to receive our newsletter, we will use your e-mail address and, if applicable, your name to send you information about us, our books and publications, promotions, and news. You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter or to the creation of personalized user profiles at any time with effect for the future. You will find the unsubscribe link at the end of each newsletter. The revocation leads to the deletion of the collected user data. Our newsletter is sent as part of processing on our behalf by Klaviyo to whom we pass on your e-mail address for this purpose.
Insofar as you have given us your consent to process your Personal Information for marketing and advertising purposes, we are entitled to contact you for these purposes via the communication channels you have given your consent to.
You may give us your consent in a number of ways including by selecting a box on a form where we seek your permission, or sometimes your consent is implied from your interactions or contractual relationship. Where your consent is implied, it is on the basis that you would have a reasonable expectation of receiving marketing communication based on your interactions or contractual relationship with us.
Our Marketing generally takes the form of e-mail but may also include other less traditional or emerging channels. These forms of contact will be managed by us, or by our contracted service providers. Every directly addressed marketing sent by us or on our behalf will include a means by which you may unsubscribe or opt out.
Principles of processing Personal Information
Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us. We have also implemented numerous security measures (“technical and organizational measures”) for example encryption or need to know access, to ensure the most complete protection of Personal Information processed through this website.
Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. And databases or data sets that include Personal Information may be breached inadvertently or through wrongful intrusion. Upon becoming aware of a data breach, we will notify all affected individuals whose Personal Information may have been compromised as expeditiously as possible after which the breach was discovered.
Unless specifically required when using our services and explicit consent is obtained for that service, we do not process special category data or protected health information.
We do not request Personal Information from minors and children and do not knowingly collect such data or pass it on to third parties.
Automated decision-making is the process of making a decision by automated means without any human involvement. Automated decision-making does not take place.
We do not sell your Personal Information.
We do not request Personal Information from minors and children and do not knowingly collect such data or pass it on to third parties.
When it comes to the collection of Personal Information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. To be in accordance with CANSPAM, we agree to the following: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us, and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (‘DNT’) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. At this stage no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, our website does not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this policy.
We will not disclose or otherwise distribute your Personal Information to third parties unless this is i) necessary for the performance of our services, ii) you have consented to the disclosure, iii) or if we are legally obliged to do so e.g., by court order or if this is necessary to support criminal or legal investigations or other legal investigations or other legal proceedings; or proceedings at home or abroad or to fulfill our legitimate interests.
Third-party services and content
We use content or service offers of third-party providers on the basis of our legitimate interests in order to integrate their content and services (“content”). This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content.
The following provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, together with links to their privacy policies, which contain further information on the processing of data and so-called opt-out measures, if any:
