Information on data protection in CBBMR

In the data protection concept of CBBMR the basic principles of data protection measures and their technical implementation are laid down. The data protection concept has been approved by the data protection officer of the hospital and submitted to the Hessian data protection officer for examination.

In handling donor data, we have committed ourselves to the guidelines of the National Ethics Council NER. The data protection concept of Marburger Biobank is based on the legal requirements of the Hessian Data Protection Act, the Hessian State Hospital Act and the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation DS-GVO.

All employees of CBBMR who come into contact with personal identifying data of donors are subject to the obligation of secrecy. Donor and sample data only leave the biobank in pseudonymized, i.e. encrypted form.

Data protection clarification in accordance with the EU data protection basic regulation (DS-GVO)
