Usage data

When you visit our websites, we temporarily store so-called usage data on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). We use the usage data for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our websites and for security purposes. We also use this information to enable you to access our website, to monitor and administer our systems, and to improve the design of our websites. These purposes pursued by us also represent the legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR.

The data set consists of:

– the page from which the file was requested
– the name of the file
– the date and time of the query
– the amount of data transferred
– the access status (file transferred, file not found)
– the description of the type of web browser used
– the IP address of the requesting computer, shortened by the last three digits.


We use cookies on our websites. Cookies are small text files that can be stored and read on your end device. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. Cookies can contain data that makes it possible to recognize the device used. In some cases, however, cookies only contain information on certain settings that cannot be related to a specific person.

We use session cookies on our websites. The processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR and in the interest of optimizing user guidance.

You can set your browser so that it informs you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. You can also delete cookies at any time via the corresponding browser setting and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our web pages may then not be optimally displayed and some functions may no longer be technically available.


You have the possibility to send us your application documents by e-mail. Your application documents will be accepted by the human resources department and will only be forwarded to the department responsible for the respective position or to the persons responsible for processing such applications. We use your application data to carry out the application process. We will delete your application documents no later than six months after completion of the application process. The legal basis for data processing is § 26 paragraph 1 sentence 1 Federal Data Protection Act.

Business partner, supplier and interested party data

The implementation of our business relations requires the processing of data of our contractual partners. Insofar as this data allows conclusions to be drawn about a natural person (e.g. contact person of a company, suppliers), this is personal data. We only process personal data that we receive from you in the course of our business relationship. This includes name, address, company affiliation and your contact details (telephone number, e-mail address).

The processing of your personal data may arise on the one hand due to the implementation of pre-contractual measures that precede a contractually regulated business relationship or on the other hand in the fulfillment of obligations arising from a concluded contract with you. This may include, for example, the processing of purchase orders, deliveries or payments, or the preparation and response to quotation requests from individuals, to determine the establishment or terms of a contractual relationship. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter b DSGVO.

In addition, we are subject to legal obligations that may require the processing of your personal data. These legal obligations may arise, for example, from tax law, commercial law, foreign trade law or sanctions law. When processing data for these purposes, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter c DSGVO.

In addition, it may be necessary for the processing of your personal data to protect legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f DSGVO). The legitimate interests are in particular the conclusion or implementation of contracts and other business relationships with our business partners, suppliers or interested parties for whom you may be acting as a representative or as an employee. Furthermore, legitimate interests include internal administrative purposes (e.g. for accounting) or ensuring IT security and operation, as well as for conducting compliance investigations, ensuring building and facility security, or asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

In the context of our business relationship, you must provide those personal data that are necessary for the establishment, implementation and termination of a business relationship and for the fulfillment of the associated obligations, which we are required by law to collect or are entitled to collect on the basis of legitimate interests. Without this data, we will generally not be able to contact you and/or enter into a business relationship with you.

If you have provided us with data voluntarily, we will indicate this accordingly when collecting the data.

Contact us

You have the possibility to contact us by electronic mail, telephone or via our contact form from this website. We will use the contact form to collect your e-mail address and your message. You can enter your name, your company and your telephone number on voluntary basis. Your data will only be used to answer your request. Your data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary to process your request. The legal basis for the use of your data is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in being in contact with the users of the website and in answering any questions you may have or sending you information. Your data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes. As a rule, we delete your request two weeks after final answering of your request.

Press distribution list

You can subscribe to our press distribution list by sending us an e-mail. We process your e-mail address, your name, your business contact data and your field of interest. The purpose of data processing is to send you information on capital market law, press releases and ad-hoc announcements about our company. Legal basis is our legitimate interest to inform representatives of the press and other interested parties about our company. You can unsubscribe from the press distribution list at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link in any e-mail or by sending an e-mail to:

We will delete your data as soon as you unsubscribe from the press distribution list.

Google Fonts

For the uniform representation of fonts, so-called web fonts are used on our website, which are provided by Google. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to our web servers, as we have integrated Google’s web fonts locally. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

Use of service providers

Epigenomics engages third parties to provide services and process your data (so-called order processing). The service providers process the data exclusively as instructed by Epigenomics and are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection regulations. All processors have been carefully selected and will only have access to your data to the extent and for the period necessary to perform the services.

Duration of data storage

We only store your data for as long as it is necessary for the provision of our services and there are no retention periods to prevent deletion.

Your rights as a user

As a user, you have the right to request information as to which data about you is stored by us and for what purpose it is stored. In addition, you can correct incorrect data or have such data deleted whose storage is inadmissible or no longer necessary. You have the right to data portability under Article 20 GDPR. In addition, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority about the data processing taking place. If you have given us your consent, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.

Information on your right of objection

You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you pursuant to Article 21 of the GDPR, in particular on the basis of Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) of the GDPR. We will stop processing your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. To exercise your above right, please contact us at the address below.
