Thank you for choosing to be part of our community at Custom Surgical GmbH ("Company", "we", "us", "our"). We are committed to protecting your personal information and your right to privacy. If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy notice, or our practices with regards to your personal information, please contact us at support@customsurgical.co  

When you visit our website https://customsurgical.co (the "Website"), and more generally, use any of our services (the "Services", which include the Website), we appreciate that you are trusting us with your personal information. We take your privacy very seriously. 

In this privacy notice, we seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in relation to it. We hope you take some time to read through it, carefully, as it is important. If there are any terms in this privacy notice that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of our Services immediately. 

This privacy notice applies to all information collected through our Services (which, as described above, includes our Website), as well as any related services, sales, marketing or events. 

Please read this privacy notice carefully as it will help you understand what we do with the information that we collect.

By sending us a resume and/or CV you agree to give us your personal data, such as your education and scientific degrees, work experience, professional and other skills, your photo, etc. You don’t have to provide any additional information in your resume or in any other way.

Anyway, we will not use identifiable personal information without your consent.

Please check the third parties’ privacy policies before you submit any Personal Data to their services.

"Cookies" and automatically collected data

We use some third-party services that may collect some aggregated user information. If we have processed your data based on your consent and you wish to revoke your consent, please contact us support@customsurgical.co or just don’t give cookie consent when you visit the website.  

We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use or navigate the Website. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information) but may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location, information about how and when you use our Website and other technical information. 

This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our Website, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.

Like many businesses, we also collect information through cookies and similar technologies. 

The information we collect includes: 

  1. Log and Usage Data. Log and usage data is service-related, diagnostic, usage and performance information our servers automatically collect when you access or use our Website and which we record in log files. Depending on how you interact with us, this log data may include your IP address, device information, browser type and settings and information about your activity in the Website (such as the date/time stamps associated with your usage, pages and files viewed, searches and other actions you take such as which features you use), device event information (such as system activity, error reports (sometimes called 'crash dumps') and hardware settings). 
  2. Device Data. We collect device data such as information about your computer, phone, tablet or other device you use to access the Website. Depending on the device used, this device data may include information such as your IP address (or proxy server), device and application identification numbers, location, browser type, hardware model, Internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, operating system and system configuration information. 
  3. Location Data. We collect location data such as information about your device's location, which can be either precise or imprecise. How much information we collect depends on the type and settings of the device you use to access the Website. For example, we may use GPS and other technologies to collect geolocation data that tells us your current location (based on your IP address). You can opt-out of allowing us to collect this information either by refusing access to the information or by disabling your Location settings on your device. Note, however, if you choose to opt-out, you may not be able to use certain aspects of the Services.

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track ("DNT") feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. At this stage no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy notice.

Data storage, security and cross-border transfer

We will use all reasonable measures to protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or removal. The Service is equipped with the means of security and protection of your Personal Data.

Immediate access to your Personal Data is allowed only to us and persons authorized by us and involved in the maintenance of the Service. Such persons will strictly keep the confidentiality of and prevent unauthorized third-party access to your Personal Data.

Please remember that our Service may be hosted on a server outside your home country. By supplying us with your Personal Data, you permit its transfer outside the country, within the bounds of use of such Personal Data in accordance with the applicable law.

We emphasize that none of the existing ways of data transfer can be absolutely safe. The Company does not guarantee the absolute security of data in case of unauthorized access of third parties.

We shall not be responsible for unlawful acts of third parties, hackers, intruders, and other offenders of the applicable legislation that may violate the provisions of this Privacy Policy and try to collect, either fully or in part, your Personal Data and to use it for personal advantage.

As a general rule, the time limit for personal data processing and storage in our services is 7 (seven) years from the date of your last activity or deletion of your account, which is ordinarily necessary to comply with applicable tax/revenue laws, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
