  • Date and time of request
  • The full IP address of the computer accessing the website.

We store this data in order to improve the security of our website, in particular to prevent any attempt to attack our web server. Your IP address is deleted after a maximum period of seven days, once it is no longer required to ensure the security of the Website.

We do not collect any sensitive data about you (e.g. your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, health information, genetic or biometric data). We also do not collect information on criminal convictions and offences.

In connection with the operation of our website, we may work with third parties (“Merz Aesthetics Contractor”) to provide services to us. Merz Aesthetics Contractors may, under certain circumstances, have access to your IP address. However, Merz Aesthetics Contractors will only process your data for and on behalf of Merz Aesthetics and only for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. In addition, Merz Aesthetics and its Contractors will protect your data with appropriate technical and organizational security measures. Some of Merz Aesthetics Contractors may be established abroad, in particular in the United States. In such cases, the legality and security of the data transfer is ensured either by an adequacy decision or by the implementation of contractual clauses approved by the competent authorities.

When we store and use your personal data, we ensure the appropriate security of your personal data, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organizational measures.
