This information cannot be used to personally identify visitors. When collecting and processing your IP address, the same will be fully anonymized right after collection by deleting the last 3 figures. That way we are no longer able to identify you as a person. We will delete the IP address within no more than one month (for more information, see “Cookies and web analytics”).

2. Collecting and processing of personal data

Personal data includes any information related to you as a natural person. We will collect and process such data with your consent (for instance during an online job application or when taking part in an online survey) or, as applicable, based on a legal justification. We will inform you about the legal basis of each collection, including the processing purposes, or ask for your informed consent to the processing. Accordingly, we will process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (“Bundesdatenschutzgesetz”, “BDSG”), of the German Telemedia Act (“Telemediengesetz”, “TMG”), and other local statutory laws on privacy. The data processing will take place in Germany. No onward transfer to third countries is envisioned with the exception of your queries related to a product group, product or service.

We will not disclose your personal data to any governmental authority, unless in cases where it is required by mandatory law. Our employees, agencies, and retailers are obliged by us to respect the confidentiality of your personal data and data secrecy (Section 5 BDSG).

3. Cookies and web analytics

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small pieces of text that are stored on your computer by your browser. They make our services more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses or malware. For our own purposes, we use "session cookies" which will help to identify you while using our website. "Session cookies" will be deleted automatically after your visit.

Additionally, we offer to set a "save-your-choice cookie". The cookie saves whether you are a private user or a healthcare professional. This makes our website faster for your personal future use of the site. The "save-your-choice cookie" will be stored for one year after your last visit on our website.

Moreover, we use "tracking cookies" to improve how our website works. These cookies collect information analytics in aggregate form only; for instance about how often visitors use a page of our website, which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from our pages. These cookies collect information on an aggregate basis and cannot be used to identify a single user of our website. Whenever we use tracking cookies, your data will be immediately anonymized right after collection.

This website uses Piwik, a web analytics open-source software. Piwik uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address anonymized prior to its storage) will be stored on the server of the service provider in Germany.

We also use a “cookie notifier cookie”, which indicates that you agree with the usage of cookies on our website. It is set automatically upon closure of the 'use of cookies' information mask and will be stored for the duration of one year therefrom. During this time the 'use of cookies' information mask will not be shown again.

You have the right to opt-out of the cookies used on this website, however please note that if you opt-out you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. To opt out, you will need to manage your preferences in your browser or on your mobile device. You can delete all of these cookies at your own discretion at any time in your browser settings. If you delete your cookies, you might need to login again when using our website. Please note that in case you disable the cookies in your browser, the settings might be of limited effect if you use a different browser upon your next use of this website.

If you decide to set a “do-not-track” preference in your browser or on your mobile device, Piwik will not track your visit.

4. Social Media Plug-ins and Activity Feeds

Fresenius Kabi is using social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of social networks, namely Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram (“Provider”), for example Facebook`s “Share with friends”-button as well as an activity feed presenting Fresenius Kabi`s social media activity on such Providers.

To ensure your privacy and the protection of your user specific data, those plug-ins and the activity feed are deactivated by default. Without a distinct permission granted by you, neither the plug-ins nor the activity feed will transmit any data to third party providers.

a) Implementation of “Shariff”

In order to secure your privacy, we are using a solution called “Shariff”. Shariff enables you to decide, whether and when to activate any plug-ins on our website and, by doing so, whether to initiate a transfer of user specific data to the Provider.

b) Activating plug-ins

Only if you specifically activate a certain plug-in via Shariff, your browser will connect to the servers of the respective Provider and a transfer of user specific data (as further referenced below) to that Provider will occur.


You hereby consent that by clicking on a particular button, for example “Share on Facebook”, “Share on Twitter” or “Share on LinkedIn”, your internet browser will connect to the corresponding servers of the respective Provider and that your user specific data will be transferred to that Provider. Additionally, if you are currently logged in to the social network of that Provider, your activity may be linked to your user account.

c) Activating activity feeds

If you activate the activity feed by clicking on the inactive mask, your browser will connect to the servers of each Provider and a transfer of user specific data (as further referenced below) to each Provider will occur.


You hereby consent that by clicking on the inactive mask of the activity feed (e.g. the Facebook activity feed), your internet browser will connect to the servers of each Provider whose activity feed is presented on the website. In this case your user specific data will be transferred to these Providers. Additionally, if you are currently logged in to a social network of these Providers, your activity may be linked to your user account. Please note that a cookie is set automatically upon clicking on the mask and will be stored for the duration of one year therefrom. During this time the mask will not be shown again.

d) Social network providers’ privacy policy

Fresenius Kabi has no influence on the scope or the kind of data that will be submitted by activating the plug-in and / or activity feed. Besides, further data processing operations could be triggered, on which we do not have any influence. To learn more about the scope of personal data collected and processed, the purpose your data may be used for as well as your respective rights and setting options in order to protect your privacy (including your right to withdrawal of consent), please refer to the respective social network’s privacy policy.

5. Use of YouTube videos

As part of the activity feed, we might incorporate videos from YouTube on our website. YouTube, as the majority of websites, uses Cookies in order to collect user specific data on its website inter alia for recording video statistics, prevent fraud, and improve the user friendliness. By starting the respective video, further data processing operations could be triggered, on which we do not have any influence. For more information about privacy on YouTube see Google‘s privacy policy:

6. Additional information, complaints and inquiries

You can request information as to the processing of your personal data at any time, including but not limited to the origin and recipients of your data and the purposes of the processing, as well as request the correction and deletion of your personal data to the extent it is not required for the purposes set out above or make a complaint (to the extent required by law). In the latter case we will promptly acknowledge and investigate any complaint about the way we manage personal data.

Our Communications department or Data Protection Officer would be happy to answer any questions regarding our Internet privacy policy.
