Privacy Policy

Corden BioChem GmbH takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. It goes without saying that we always treat your personal data in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations.

Collection and processing of personal data

You can use our online services without disclosing your identity. If we request personal data (such as name, address or e-mail address) on the website, e.g. in the context of contact forms or during login/registration, this is done on a voluntary basis. We use this information for our own business purposes (such as sending the requested materials/information).


The website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

If other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this privacy policy.


The following data is collected when you visit the website, which is anonymised as soon as it is collected:

  • Referrer (previously visited website)
  • Requested web page or file
  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Type of device used
  • Time of access
  • IP address in anonymised form (only used to determine the location of access)

In addition, processing by WebAnalytics takes place.

The data is collected out of legitimate interest in order to ensure the security and stability of the website and to be able to provide website visitors with the highest level of quality. The data is stored for 8 weeks. Your data will not be passed on to third parties and no visitor data will be transferred to third countries outside the EU.

In WebAnalytics, data is collected exclusively for statistical evaluation and for the technical optimisation of the website. No data is passed on to third parties. The data is determined either by a pixel or by a log file. To protect personal data, WebAnalytics does not use cookies. The visitor’s IP address is transmitted when a page request is sent, anonymised directly after transmission and processed without personal reference.

Forwarding the data

Your data will not be passed on to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes without your express consent. We only pass on your personal data to third parties if this is legally permissible [e.g. on the basis of Article 6 GDPR] and/or necessary. In some cases, we use service providers for the legally required order processing of data; the website is hosted by Ionos and maintained by Corden BioChem International GmbH. The full responsibility for data processing remains with us. We also use plugins from other providers on our website; you can find more details below.

Liability for links (contents of external providers)

Cross-references (“links”) to content provided by other providers are to be distinguished from our own content. We have no influence on their content; the respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages.

Google Analytics 4

If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. The controller for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).

Art und Zweck der Verarbeitung

Google Analytics uses cookies that enable us to analyse your use of our website. The information collected by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

In Google Analytics 4, the anonymisation of IP addresses is activated by default. Due to IP anonymisation, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

During your visit to the website, your user behaviour is recorded in the form of “events”.

Events can be:

  • your internet provider
  • the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)

Purposes of the processing

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website and to compile reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyse the performance of our website.


Recipients of the data are/may be

  • Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA

Third country transfer

For the USA, the European Commission adopted its adequacy decision on 10 July 2023. Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Framework. Since Google servers are distributed worldwide and a transfer to third countries (for example to Singapore) cannot be completely ruled out, we have also concluded the EU standard contractual clauses with the provider.

Storage duration

The data sent by us and linked to cookies is automatically deleted after 2 month. The maximum lifespan of Google Analytics cookies is 2 years. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

Legal basis

The legal basis for this data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 sentence 1 TTDSG.


You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by calling up the cookie settings and changing your selection there. This does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

You can also prevent the storage of cookies from the outset by configuring your browser software accordingly. However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies, this may restrict the functionality of this and other websites. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by clicking on the following link
