Data Privacy Statement

The protection of your personal data collected, processed and used during your visit to our website is important to us. Your data are protected in accordance with the provisions on data protection and privacy.

Where the website allows for the input of personal data (e-mail address, names, addresses, etc.), for example when signing up for a user account, such data is entered voluntarily. The company Otto Bock HealthCare GmbH expressly states that such data shall not be shared with any third party and shall be used exclusively for the purposes of business relations. Furthermore, any storage of personal data is subject to prior consent under Section 4a of the German Data Protection Act. Your login information may be deleted at any time, depending on the technical possibilities and in consideration of proportionality.

Our website collects data in accordance with German and European provisions on data protection and privacy using Google Inc. technology ( ). This automatic data collection occurs for statistical purposes in order to optimise the web pages and online marketing. These so-called "visitor data" include, in particular, the name of the provider, IP address, the type of browser and operating system, as well as the pages accessed including any search terms and websites from which you have accessed our website. Data are always processed anonymously, i.e., the data will not be associated with your person.

If you do not agree to the collection of these data, you can reject data collection and storage for Google Analytics at this point at any time and with future effect.

In spite of diligent verification, we are unable to assume any liability for external links. As a result, we distance ourselves from third-party pages to which our website links, particularly from any violations of statutory provisions encountered there.

We strive to ensure that your data are not accessible to third parties by taking all reasonable technical and organisational precautions in storing them. However, we are unable to guarantee total data security for digital communications.

Data Privacy Statement regarding our Mobile Applications

To optimise our application (app) portfolio, Ottobock uses the software 'Flurry'.

Flurry allows for the app's use by the user to be understood and evaluated statistically. In the process, personal data are neither collected nor evaluated. Evaluation is done in an aggregate manner. Examples include the number of users during a given period of time, or page visits within a certain subject area.

Flurry does not collect any personal data, such as names, phone numbers, unique device IDs (UDIDs), e-mail addresses or messages. Flurry only stores the device type, the operating system used, the name of the ISP, and the aggregated numbers on the use of the app itself, as mentioned above. If you wish to prevent Flurry from using these data for the purpose of product improvement, you can deregister using the following website:
