If you are our customer or business partner or are interested in our services, the type, scope and purpose of the processing of your data depends on the contractual or pre-contractual relationship existing between us. In this sense, the data processed by us includes all those data that are or were provided by you for the purpose of making use of the contractual or pre-contractual services and that are required for processing your enquiry or the contract concluded between us. Unless otherwise stated in the further notes to this data protection declaration, the processing of your data and its transfer to third parties is limited to those data that are necessary and appropriate to answer your enquiries and/or to fulfil the contract concluded between you and us, to protect our rights and to fulfil legal obligations. We will inform you of the data required for this before or during the data collection process. Insofar as we use third-party providers to provide our services, the data protection notices of the respective third-party providers apply.
People affected: Interested parties, business and contractual partners
Purpose of processing: Processing of contractual services, communication as well as answering contact requests, office and organisational procedures.
Legal basis: Contract fulfilment and pre-contractual enquiries, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, legal obligation, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO, legitimate interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO
You have the right to revoke your consent to data processing at any time.
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data, which we base on our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If you exercise your right of objection, we ask you to explain the reasons. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can prove to you that compelling reasons worthy of protection for the data processing outweigh your interests and rights.
Independently of the above, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of advertising and data analysis.
Please send your objection to the contact address of the responsible person given above.
We will delete your data when we no longer need it or when you instruct us to do so. This means that – unless otherwise stated in the individual data protection notices of this data protection declaration – we delete your data,
if you make use of your right to object and thereno compelling reasons for deletion that are worthy of protection.
However, if we still need to retain (certain parts of) your data for other purposes, for example because tax retention periods (usually 6 years for business correspondence or 10 years for accounting records) or the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims arising from contractual relationships (up to four years) make this necessary or the data is needed to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, we will only delete (the part of) your data after these periods have expired. Until the expiry of these periods, however, we limit the processing of this data to these purposes (fulfilment of retention obligations).

One of the most important and recent paradigm shifts in medicine is the recognition of the central role that the gut microbiome plays in human health. However, the implementation of research findings in concrete applications is limited by the lack of specific analysis systems. Mainly, there is a lack of reliable and standardized in vitro platforms allowing to run high throughput analysis on the human microbiome. With the financial support of the EU and the state of Berlin, ACARYON develops a new in vitro human microbiome model that aims mimicking the natural gut conditions, thereby allowing to ensure a stable composition of the human microbiome in the system for more than 48 hours.
