What data do you provide?
Basic personal data
When registering, we will collect the personal information we need to set up your account and provide the services you have requested from us.
These are at least your email address, your area of interest (channel) and your country. Furthermore, we ask for your first name, surname, job title and company/institution.
In case you request as well our print products sent by post, then we ask you as well for your street, company, postal code, town and country. In order to log into our system you have to provide as well a self-chosen password. This data is assigned to an individual user ID which you have generated. Your password will be saved via a one-way hash function and we have no possibility to access it. This means it can not be recovered or read by anyone, including MB. This data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter b) GDPR.
You can also use MB sites without signing up, but you will not have a user profile, can not access our short-URL system, can not download pdf files, can not post comments or upload files, and will not receive personalized information.
To enhance your profile with us, you can upload a photo to your profile. This photo will be publicly displayed in your profile. The data processing is based on your consent given by uploading your profile picture in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) GDPR.
Extended personal data
As part of your usage of MB sites, we kindly ask you from time to time to provide further information after you finished your registration, e.g. which professional interests you have, what special interests you may have, if and how you would like to be contacted by email or if you would like to participate in market research studies. This extended personal data will be added to your user profile "non-publicly". You may delete, amend, publish or update this data at any time, depending on how much information you want to share with MB and other MB users. The processing of data is based on your personal consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) of the GDPR.

When using MB sites, you can post comments, write blogs, create author profiles, and upload various files (such as pictures, lectures, awards, and videos). These posts and files are linked to your user profile. By saving your posts and/or uploading files, you agree to publish this information under your chosen authorship and privacy preference.
In addition, some of these activities will appear on our public profile. The data processing is based on your consent by using the respective functions according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) GDPR. As part of the provision of our services requested by you, the data processing is also necessary for the execution of the contract and is based in this respect on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter b) GDPR. Since MB sites can neither verify the nature nor the content of the files during the upload process, you have to ensure that the posts or files contain no personal information that violates your rights, or exposes your gender, religion or other possibly sensitive information or the rights of third parties.
We record information about your MB site's email preferences and what kind of emails you want to receive. When you communicate with MB sites via email, we store the content of the communication and any information you choose to provide.

If you want to take part in a market research study in an official function of your employment, then MB sites need the written approval of your employer. You can send us the approval by e-mail or by post. It will be stored non-publicly with your user record as long as required by legal stipulations. The data processing is based on the legal obligation to store the evidence that such an authorization existed in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter c) and f) GDPR.
If you would like to proceed with a print subscription or any other paid-for service, we ask for your practice or company name, your billing address, your shipping address and your form of payment. This information is necessary for the fulfilment of the eCommerce transaction between MB sites and you. It will be stored for the period determined by general legal requirements. Without this data, no eCommerce agreement between you and MB can come into effect. The data processing is thus based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter b) GDPR.
