Data Protection

Privacy policy


Status: 25 May 2018



The careful handling of your data is of the highest priority for a physician. Consequently, your data, as far as you disclose them here, will of course be protected within the framework of the applicable legal provisions.

In the following, I would therefore like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the elicitation, use and processing of your personal data.

The processing of your personal data complies with the regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act of Germany.


Furthermore, I would like to inform you with this data protection declaration about the rights you are entitled to as a person concerned.

In order to ensure the most complete protection possible, both technical and organisational measures have been taken. Nevertheless, it must be pointed out that there are security gaps in Internet-based data transmission, making complete protection against access by third parties impossible. For this reason, it is possible to transmit your personal data by other means, e.g. by Phone or Postal Service, to myself or to a person appointed by me (who is subject to the duty of confidentiality).



I. Name and address of the person responsible

The controller in terms of the General Data Protection Regulation is:

Dr. med. habil. Dr. Karl Johann Probst

Barrio Equipetrol

Calle Nicolas Ortiz 477

Santa Cruz de la Sierra

Bolivia, South America



II. Collection, processing and use of personal data

Your personal data is collected when you visit my website and use my offer. Data is personal if it can be clearly assigned to a specific natural person.

Which data is stored depends on how you use the site:


1. Visit of the website

In principle, you can use my website without any indication of your personal data. However, when you call up the site, the browser you use on your end device automatically transfers information to the server of our website. This information is stored in a so-called log file for a limited period of time. The following information will be stored without your intervention until it is automatically deleted.


IP address of the requesting computer

Date and time of access

Name and URL of the retrieved file

Website from which the access is made

Browser, if applicable operating system of your end device, if applicable name of your access provider


The website also uses cookies and an analysis service. I would like to discuss this separately under points V and VI of this data protection declaration.


2. Contact by e-mail

On this website you have the possibility to contact me or a person appointed by me (who is subject to the obligation of secrecy) by e-mail. In this case, the information provided by the user will be stored for the purpose of processing his contact. We process the following data in the case of an inquiry via e-mail:


Your name

Your company name if applicable

E-mail address

Phone number (optional, if you wish to be contacted by telephone)


III. Purpose and legal basis of the data processing

In the case of a contact inquiry by e-mail, we process and store the data you provide in order to answer your inquiry. It will not be used for other purposes or passed on to third parties.


IV. Your rights

As a result of the data processing carried out here, you as a data subject are entitled to various rights. We would like to inform you about these rights in the following:


1. Right of information

In accordance with Article 15 GDPR, you can request information from us about the personal data we process. You will therefore receive particular information on the purposes of processing, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom we disclose the data, the planned storage period, the existence of a right of correction, deletion, restriction of processing or objection and the existence of a right of appeal to the supervisory authority. You will also receive information on the existence of automated decision making including profiling.


2. Right of rectification

You can also demand that we immediately correct or complete incorrect or incomplete personal data, Article 16 GDPR. Please contact us at the above address if you wish to do so.


3. Right of deletion

In accordance with Article 17 GDPR, you have the right to demand the deletion of your stored data, provided that the processing is not necessary for the exertion of freedom of opinion and information, for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exertion or defence of legal claims.


4. Right to restrict processing

In addition, you may request that the processing of your data be restricted. According to Article 18 GDPR, this presupposes that you have disputed the accuracy of the data or that the processing is unlawful and that you, as the data subject, refuse to delete the data and instead demand that the processing be restricted.

You may also demand the restriction if we as the data controller no longer need the data for the purpose of processing, but you need it for the assertion, exertion and defence of legal claims, or if you have lodged an objection to the processing and it is not clear yet whether our legitimate interest in the processing outweighs the objection.


5. Right to data transferability

Article 20 GDPR entitles you to demand that we transfer the personal data you have provided to us to you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or transfer it to another responsible party.


6. Right of appeal

In accordance with Article 77 GDPR, you can complain to the supervisory authority if we do not comply with the legal requirements for the protection of your data. You can contact the competent supervisory authority in your usual place of residence.
