3. How we use the information we collect?
We internally use personally identifiable information about our customers to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyse site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our Site’s content and layout.

We may use information in the file we maintain about a customer to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.
4. With whom the information may be shared
Bionaid relies on numerous third-party service providers to provide certain products and services on our behalf, including IT services, customer care, email delivery services, communication and delivery of promotional and marketing materials via email and direct mail, administering guest surveys and promotions, administration, data analysis, and other similar services. We may share your Personal Data for the purpose of enabling these third parties to provide such services or is otherwise necessary for the ongoing operation of Bionaid website and Bionaid business. Some of these third-party service providers may be located overseas and in particular outside the UK/EEA. When we do outsource the processing of your Personal Data to 3rd parties or provide your personal data to third-party service providers, will require those third parties to protect your Personal Data with reasonable security measures and to limit their use only to the purposes for which we have disclosed it to them.
5. What choices do I have about Bionaid collecting, using, and sharing my information?
It is possible for you to use much of our site without giving us any personally identifiable information.

You can request at any time that Bionaid not send future e-mail to you either by unsubscribing from the communication or by contacting us at info@Bionaid.com. Also, as mentioned above, there are ways to limit the information collected through technology — though some of our Site features won’t work if you decide to do this.
6. What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information?
We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. However, please keep in mind that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet and/or the World Wide Web.

When accessing our website, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address.
Google Web Fonts are used for the purpose of uniform and appealing presentation of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR. Data transmission to the USA is in accordance with EU Commission Decision 2016/1250 (EU-US Data Protection Shield).

The Bionaid newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Bionaid may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analysed by us in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by us. Bionaid automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
Integration of social media
On the basis of Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR we use the social networks YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Google My Business in order to make our website better known and to interact with our target groups. Responsibility for the data protection-compliant operation of these services is guaranteed by the respective provider. We integrate these services exclusively via a link so that visitors to our website have the best possible control over their personal data.
These social networks are operated exclusively by third parties, some of whom have their register office outside the E.U. or the EEA – there may therefore be no adequate level of data protection in accordance with the GDPR. The browser plug-ins and links on our website are identified by logos or other references. When you visit our website, which contains such a browser plug-in, a connection is automatically established between your device (browser) and the servers of the respective social network. This forwards the information that you have visited our website to the social network. If you are logged in to the social network via your personal user account or during your visit to our website, your visit to our website will be assigned to your account. By interacting with browser plug-ins or links, e.g. by pressing a “like” button or leaving a comment, this information is transmitted to the respective social network and stored there. The allocation of the data to your account can therefore be prevented on the one hand by logging out of your account (of the respective social network) before visiting our website. On the other hand, you can also completely prevent the loading of the respective plug-ins with an add-on for your browser, e.g. with the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).
The purpose and scope of data collection through social networks as well as the further processing and use of your data and your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the respective data protection information of the operators:
